a result of today's operations In the war
The extreme left of the Massachusetts
army of defense, known as the blues,
under command of Brigadier-General
William A. Pew, were hammered unmer
cifully, so that the entire left winy w-as
forced to retreat. The blue army also
differed the losa of one battery and a
Far superior In actual numbers and In
cavalry, the red force swept down upon
the blues left and drove them first Into
one position and then another with Ir
resistible force. For the last three days
General Bliss has moved his army In
three divisions massed, with the full
trengrth of his cavalry on his left flank.
Cavalry Good Work.
The work of the cavalry arm was most
brilliant and of untold assistance. Prom
the beginning of the "war" the red troops
cf cavalry have practically done all the
lighting for General B'lss, and It was
only In the last hour of today's "battle"
that the infantry strength of the red
army waa ordered Into action.
While today" fighting forced General
, Pew to retreat and move his division
. headquarters from Robins Pond back to
Fouth Hanson, the engagement was re
garded as merely preliminary to a greater
'battle" that will be fought, probably to
morrow. General Pew endeavored this morning
to move bta right wing, the first bri
gade, by a retrograde movement from
its position in and around Brldgewater
' to a point cast of South Hanson, there
to reinforce the second brigade on the
left wing, which was facing the entire
red army. Forced marches were made
during the entire morning, but up to 1
P. M., the hour when fighting ceased,
they had not arrived in sufficient num
bers to be of any assistance.
Bllaa Changes Tactics.
While General Pew waa making this
endeavor General Bllsschanged his tao
tlcs and. forming his entire army in one
long single column, with the cavalry
well on his left flank, drove straight for
the blue extreme left. The forces met
at North Plympton, when the blues
had only the Fifth Regiment, part of
the first corps of cadets and Battery B.
Although the comparatively small force
of the blues made a bold stand, they
were driven back by superior numbers.
The blues made a stubborn .retreat,
making stand after stand to cover the
withdrawal of theiriagon train, which
was moving north as fast as possible
toward the main base at South Han

missions to Schively, and also a report he
said was made out and delivered- to
Schively when the latter retired as pres
ident. Hunter identified marginal notes
on this report to be In Schively s hand

Then, getting down to the Perjury
charge proper, the State produced J. H.
Pelletler. Assistant Prosecuting Attorney
of Spokane County, and Ben F. Da;
foreman of the grand Jury, who testified
that in the grand jury investigation of
the affairs of the insurance company
Schively had sworn there was no agree
ment between himself and W ard; that

that he had not paid the notes or ever
seen them; that he was not paid as pres
ident by Commission, but drew a rial
salary of 400 per month.
For the first time today the members
of ;the Senate exerted their prerogative of
submitting written questions to the wit
nesses. The following questions were sub
mitted to Mr. Schrock: . '
Written Questions Submitted.
Senator Cox Who paid the notes,
Schively or the company?

company and charged to Mr. Schively s
account. , .

During the discussion of the notes, there
was a clash again today between Schlve
ly's counsel and I P. Page, manager. v
Mrr Edge declared at the time the
grand Jury was in session a search had
been made for the notes, but was unsuc
cessful. Not having them, he said all the
state could do was to produce testimony
concerning their existence.
Missing Notes Discussed.
"Some one from that side of the table
yesterday suggested that I ask my client
about them," said Schvlely's attorney,
"and I said I had done so and he told
me they never existed."
. Attorney Israel then cross-examined
Schrock as to the fate of the notes. Mr.,
Schrock testified that If given proper ac
cess to the compariy's files in Spokane he
believed he could find the notes if they
had not been removed. He said the au
thorities there had not given him a suf
ficient opportunity to produce them. The
cancelled notes, he said, were turned over
to Charles Murray, the first receiver of
the company, but between the end of the
first receivership and the second the notes
were back In the possession of Schrock,
who testified he had them in his posses
sion about 90 days, keeping them in the
company's, safe. Thereafter they were
given over to the second receiver.
The company books produced by R. J.
Hunter tiave entries purporting to show
the payment to Schively In a period of
three months In 1906, of the sum of
t37.8o from which was deducted $351.80
paid to him for fees as Deputy Insurance
Commissioner. According to Schlvely's
statement that he received a flat salary
of $400 per month, his compensation for
the three months would have been. $1200.
Today's proceedings closed with the
testimony of Ben F. Davis. The state ex
pects to conclude its testimony Friday.
