ROMISES OF CLARK
Witnesses Related Conversa
tions With the Senator
AT THE HEARING YESTERDAY
He Looked Upon Bribery an
Trifling Matter, According to
One of Them'.
"WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. Owing to the
failure of witnesses to appear, the senate
committee on privileges and elections to
day adjourned the hearing in the Clark
senatorial contest case until next "Wednes
day. The principal witnesses heard to
day were M. L. Hewitt and Charles M.
Jackson. C. W. Clark, son of the sena
tor, was also before the committee for a
few moments to testify to the disappear
ance of certain letters written to his
father. Both Hewitt and Jackson related
conversations alleged to have been held
with Mr. Clark. Mr. Hewitt said Mr.
Clark had told him he had perfect confi
dence In State Senator Whit--lde as a
friend, and "had said he had "paid his
supporters all he owed them." Mr. Jack
son is a member of the legislature of
Utah, and he testified that in trying to
Influence his (Jackson'e) vote in that body,
Clark had. told him he bad used money
to secure his own election to the senate,
saying this was a common practice among
aspiring men of means.
"When the committee began Its
session the defense stated they had
been unable to Und the letters
written to Clark and BIckford by
Dentist Ector, who yesterday produced
their letters to him. It was then decided
to have C. "W. Clark, son of the senator,
make a statement as to the disposition
f the documents, but Clark being absent,
Mr. Garr was recalled to afford Senator
Tarley an opportunity to question him
concerning his visits to Helena prior to
the meeting of the legislature last winter.
Garr said the principal object of his visit
was to see about his resignation as United
The first regular witness of the day
was M. L. Hewitt, a miner, who was In
Helera during the session of the legisla
ture in 1S89. He said Charley Clark asked
him to see Senator Myers and offer him
J1000 for his vote for Clark for senator. He
had accordingly talked with Myers and
testified that the gentleman had told him
after first declining the proposition to say
to Clark that if he was disposed to do so,
he could put $10,000 in the hands of White
side to be paid to him (Myers) in case
he should vote for Clark.
Hewitt said that Clark's son stated this
arrangement was satisfactory, and had
afterwards told him the money for Myers
had been given to "Whiteside and his vote
uas assured. Hewitt said that during
the senatorial contest he had talked fre
quently with Clark. Once he had remon
strated with the senator concerning
Whiteside, as a well-known supporter of
Daly, but the senator had, he aid, as
sured him that "Whiteside's fidelity was
acsured because of the fact that he
CWhiteside) was in trouble with Clark's
opponents over a building he was con
structing in Butte.
After the Esposnrc.
"Witness also said he had seen the sen
ator at his rooms at the Helena hotel a
thori time after the Whiteside exposure.
and had asked him what he proposed to
do, when the tenator had replied:
"There is only one thing to do. and that
is to make people believe the Daly gang
has furnished money and has put up a
conspiracy against us."
' I asked him." continued the witness,
"if he could make that stick, to which he
replied. 'There's no trouble about the
deal, because If we put up a good excuse
people will believe us, and we can again
jget members together. "
The witness also detailed a conversation
which he said he had with Senator Clark
the eve of the Investigation by the su
preme court, in which he told the senator
that Tom Lyons, one of the senator's
workers, had threatened to go to court and
terrify against Clark because the latter's
friends had not kept their promises to
him. According to the witness the sena
tor had then replied:
"I don't owe these (using an offensive
phrase) anyth'ng. I have paid them all
they asked. I am under no obligation to
them, and I expect them to do as they
aproed to do by me."
Mr. Hewitt said, however, that Clark
added that he would have his son see
Lyons. He said that Clark had often
spoken to him of his son, and of Messrs.
Wellcome. Bickford, Steele and others, as
his friends in the senatorial fight. Well
come and Charley Clark were regarded as
the senator's special representatives.
Drifted Into the Contest.
On cross-examination, Hewitt said he
was a republican and not especially In
terested in any of the senatorial candi
dates. He had "just drifted into the con
test." He pronounced as Incorrect the re
port of the testimony taken before the
Lewis and Clark county grand jury fur
nished by the memorialists, and he had
r.ot told all the facts to the jury. In
deed, he had never told all to any one
lentil he had given the details to Mr. Bir
ney, one of the attorneys for the memo
rialists, .n "Washington a few days ago.
Senator Faulkner's questions were de
voted to showing the inconsistency on
the rart of the witness in refusing to
give the details to the Montana repre
sentative of the prosecution, whom he
knew, and then giving them to Birney,
whom he did not know. He asked Hew
itt whether Birney had not promised to
see that he was taken care of, but the
witness replied emphatically in the nega
t.v, adding, that he had "received noth
ing and no promise of anything from the
anti-Clark people for his part in this pro
ceeding." Urdpr pressure, he said that when he
v.ent before the grand jury he had de
sired not to reveal all his transactions
during the sitting of the legislature. He
had only replied to questions asked him
and he did not consider that he had
perjured himself in withholding some of
th facts. He had. however, made up his
mind to tell the whole truth here.
Concluding his testimony, Hewitt said he
had received no pay for his services for
C irk and no promise of any. He had
bc.n interested with the senator in a min
ing company and preferred him to his op
ponents. C. W. Clark was next called. He was
questioned concerning letters to Dr. Ec
tor from hmself, his father and Bickford,
which were referred to In Ector's testi
mony yesterday, and to which the letters
from Senator Clark produced yesterday
were said to be replies. He said he had
last seen them during the Wellcome dis
barment trial, and was sure that he had
put them In his trunk to bring East. He
could not find them, however, and thought
tley must be in New York. He was sure
he had not destroyed them, and said he
nould go to New York and get them.
A Utah Legislator.
The next witness was Charles W. Jack
son, a newspaper man residing in Salt
Lake, and a member of the legislature of
that state. He testified that he met Mr.
Clark at the Knutsford hotel, in Salt
Lake, during the senatorial deadlock in
that state last February, and that Mr.
Clark had tried to Influence him to vote
for McCune-for United States senator from
ttah, intimating that in case he would do
go hp would be paid for the act.
Relating to the conversation, Mr. Jack
sen said that Clark had said that Mc
Oune was a liberal man, who never forgot
hiS friends, and said "if I should see my
way clear to voting for him, he had no
doubt he would do something handsome
Jackson said he had declined, and that
Clark had then proceeded to argue the
point, saying that all scandals of that I
character soon died out; that it was the
custom of men of wealth to spend monty
to secure election to the senate. Jackson
said Mr. Clark cited the case of Senator
Hanna, of Ohio, as in point. He said
that Mr. Clark stated that in his own
case he had used money to secure his own
election, which had then but recently oc
curred. His election caused some talk,
and some members had foolishly exhibited
some bills in a careless way, but he had
no doubt the talk would die out. and
he would hear little of It. Mr. Clark had
asked him to regard the conversation as
When Mr. Jackson concluded his testi
mony it was announced that no more wit
nesses would be examined before Wednes
day next, and after an executive session
the court adjourned.
CANADIAN INDIANS MAY RISE
Fears That They Will Take Advan
tage of Absence of Police.
MONTREAL, Jan. 13. There is fear of
the Canadian Indians In the Northwest
rising owing to the withdrawal of some
of the mounted police for the Transvaal.
The condition Is considered serious. Clif
ford Seaton, minister of the Interior, and
the commissioner have telegraphed the In
dian agents to warn the Indians that mis
conduct on their part will mean a stop
page of the government bounty, and any
outbreak will be suppres-sesd by force. The
white men and halfbreeds who have been
doing their best to foment trouble will be
compelled to leave the country.
The department of the interior was in
formed by cipher telegram that a serious
state of affairs exists In the northern por
tions of Asslnniboihe and Alberta, along
the Saskatchewan. The Indians of the
northern district, principally the Crows,
it appears, have been taking a great In
terest in the South African war, and have
been most anxious to get every scrap of
news concerning it. At first their anxiety
to get news seemed to be merely that
of members of a fighting race who took
an Interest in any trouble anywhere, but
within the past few days affairs have
taken on a dangerous aspect. White men,
adventurers of a most undesirable type,
have been telling the Indians that the
British government is doing exactly what
the Indians believe the Canadian govern
ment did in 1885 that is, attempting to
steal from the Boers the lands upon which
their fathers lived, and which belong to
them just as much as, in the belief of the
braves of a decade and a half ago, the
whole Northwest belonged to the red
The Indian agents and the mounted
police have found the Indians excited by
these tales, and in some cases the agents
have gone to the trouble of trying to
counteract the reports by getting the
TIME IS SHORTENED.
Northwestern Opens a New Line Over
The Chicago & Northwestern railway
has considerably shortened the time to
Chicago by opening for freight and pas
senger traffic Its new line between Clinton
and Davenport, la., and Mollne, 111., via
the Davenport, Rock Island & Northwest
ern railway. As the Davenport & North
western controls the terminals at Rock
Island, Mollne and Davenport, as well as
the bridge across the Mississippi between
these cities, the new arrangement will
effect a considerable saving of time. It
will be necessary to make no transfers of
freight, and only one of passengers, at
the union depot in Clinton.

that the British ship Red Rock arrived

up as lost and the check for the payment
of 90 per cent reinsurance made out. She

THE TURNING MOVEMENT
BUIiIiER'S FLANS WERE EVIDENTLY
KNOWN TO THE BOERS.
The Entire Ladysmlth Garrison "En
gaged in Last Saturday's Battle
The Boer Losses.
NEW YORK. Jan. 13. Discussing the
Anglo-Boer war situation, the London cor
respondent of the Tribune says:
No further news has yet been issued
with regard to General Buller's flank
movement, but the general feeling as ex
pressed in this morning's newspapers is
one of hope rather -than anxiety. Buller
is apparently attempting the turning
movement west of Colenso, which nearly
all military experts were expecting when
his first battle was fought December 15,
directly in front.
The military writers have assumed dur
ing the last fortnight that there would be
a turning movement, but that it would be
east of Colenso from Weenen. Some of
these experts clung with tenacity to their
theory yesterday, and described the Pot
gieter demonstration as a feint designed
to distract Joubert's attention from the
real point of attack at the other- end of
the line, but this explanation was not
borne out by General Buller's own pres
ence at Springfield. He had probably
been waiting for the completion of his
mule transport service, which would en
able him to carry the main body of his
army away from the railway base of sup
plies and fight day after day on the ene
my's flank until a junction could be ef
fected with White's army. The veterans
also suggested that he might have lin
gered In his camp until General Roberts'
arrival at Cape Town, in order to allow
the new commander-in-chief the privilege
of vetoing at the last moment the pro
posed plan of campaign.
Whatever the precise cause of his Inac
tion, General Buller was at last in the
saddle and a second battle or series of
battles would be fought for the relief of
Ladysmlth. Singularly enough the only
previous reference to this western turn
ing movement which had appeared in
print, was In a dispatch from the Boer
camp at Colenso. It was a vague rumor
that the British were building a rail
way from Frere camp toward Potgieter's
drift. The occupation of the south bank
of the Tugela at that point could not
have been a surprise to the Boers. The
drift Is at the apex of a long bend or
loop, and back of it are low ranges of
kopjes, with broken country all the way
to Ladysmlth. A turning movement east
of Colenso would have threatened the
main line of -the Boer communications
northward, but would have left the Free
State troops free to retire westward to
their own frontier. A turning movement
west of Colenso by Potgieter's drift, If
successful, would cut off the direct line of
retreat of the Free State burghers to their
mountain passes, but would not block
their way northward, unless General
White should attack in the rear.
The clubs were crowded with loungers
last night eager to hear the important
news which they were confident would
come before morning. There was an un
wonted air of bustle and cheerfulness at
the war office. But hour after hour
passed without disclosures. There was a
general conviction that the crisis of the
campaign had come and that General
Buller was in a position to retrieve his
reputation by a series of great strokes.
The dangerous character of this flank
movement, by which his own camp at
Chevely would be exposed to a counter
act by the Dutch, was also discerned,
and the probability of a series of despe
rate, battles sobered every one. The pro
cess of reconstructing the cabinet, which
has been the chief employment of the
marplots and pessimists, was suspended
until Buller could be heard from. The
message which would electrify or doom
to fresh disappointment the English peo
ple had not come at midnight.
As the names in the casualty Qlst of
the Ladysmlth battle represent 18 mili
tary organizations, it Is clear that nearly
the whole garrison was engaged In the 17
hours' fight. This list disposes effeotually
of the Boer estimates of losses, which
General Buller took needless pains to cor
rect. Those losses were evidently heavy,
unless General White's men were forced
to spare their ammunition. A Boer tele
gram from Pretoria now admits that
while the burghers were successful at the
beginning of the storming of the plateau
at Ladysmlth, on the 7th, subsequently
they were compelled to abandon two of
From Boer advices it appears that
last Sunday at Colesbirrg the British were
beaten back with loss.
A Berlin telegram to the Standard says
the summoning of an International confer
ence to discuss and conclude a conven
tion on international maritime law to be
siged by the powers Interested in the mat
ter is now under consideration.
The text of Lord Salisbury's reply to the
American government serves to alter the
opinion of experts in international law on
one point. Lord Salisbury has not set a
bad precedent for the -United Kingdom,
which in any future war with a European
power will have no neutral Delagoa bay,
whereas every Continental nation wll
have neutral territory bordering upon it.
He has ruled that breadstuffs are not
contraband, unless destined for the ene
my's forces. This decision exempts food
stuffs not specially designed for an army
or fleet, and is in accordance with the
naval orders given the American cruisers
during the war with Spain.
Lord Salisbury's action, while based
upon rulings of English courts, is wholly
In accord with the continuous American
practice, which discriminated between
provisions for the ordinary use of life In
the enemy's country and provisions for
military or navy use.
Pro-Boer Sentiment From Australia.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 13. According
to J. F. Archibald, editor and proprietor
of the Sydney Bulletin, who arrived here
yesterday from Australia, there is a
growing feeling in Australia that the Brit
ish colonies are making a serious mistake
In aiding England to wage war against tne
Transvaal. "It was a grave error for Aus
tralia to send our troops to South Africa,"
ho said. "It amounts to an abandonment
of our Independence." Personally Mr.
Archibald considers the war with the
Transvaal monstrous, unjustifiable and en
tirely unprovoked. He said:
"Joseph Chamberlain Is a Judas who has
betrayed all parties and interests with
which he has been Identified. He betrayed
the radicals; he betrayed Gladstone and
now he has betrayed his country for the
benefit of the people with whom he was in
communication at the time of the Jameson
raid. England deserves to lose the fight,
because of its manifest unjustness."
Snlphnr Xot Contrnlmnd.
NEW YORK, Jan. 13. A Washington
special to the Tribune says:
The reported seizure by the British at
Port Elizabeth of an Italian back laden
with sulphur, in the openion of the
state department authorities, is an
other case which Salisbury will
have to disavow as explicitly as he
has done in the American flour seizure
question. It is said to be beyond reason
that Great Britain would consent to re
gard sulphur as contraband any more
than she would be willing to include food
stuffs in that category, for, in a wao with
a commercial power, the precedent rould
be fatal to her manufacturers.
Cheered for Britain.
CHICAGO, Jan. 13. Three thousand peo
ple filled Central Music hall this evening,
cheered for Great Britain and Queen Vic
toria until their voices were hoarse, and
denounced the Boers and all their work.
The meeting was held under the auspices
of the Sons and Daughters of Great
Britain, and was enthusiastic in the ex

Timekeeper Dunn Is Blamed on All
NEW YORK, Jan. 13. The decision of
Johnny White, in awarding the bout at the
Broadway Athletic Club last night to Mc
Coy, is quite generally upheld by the
morning papers here, although two of
them claim that Choynskl was treated un
fairly. All the papers argue that the mis
take of the timekeeper was deplorable,
and that in that respect the Californian
did not receive his just dues. Timekeeper
Dunn refused to discuss the fight. Ho
closed his watch and left the buildUg.
But he was seen to protest to the referee
at the end of the second round that he
was right. Choy-Lskl, in an interview with
a World representative, said:
"I was robbed of the fight. I knocked
McCoy out in the second round with a
right swing on the law, and he was down
12 or 15 seconds. Both timekeepers, tho
club's and my own, agreed on that, and
Dunn rang the bell to indlcato that the
fight was over. It was called a round, but
McCoy had one minute and 40 seconds to
"In the third round McCoy knocked me
down after the bell rang. I am a little
deaf, but I heard the bell. McCoy did
not. It knocked mo out and I was unable
to come up for the next round. I was
McCoy said: "I am sorry there was a
misunderstanding about the time. I was
not out, although I was pretty weak. I
was careless and got a punch on the jaw
in the second round that dazed me. The
fourth time Choynskl knocked me down,
I took my time and listened to the ref
eree's count. I got up just as he counted
10, and then the bell rang. I showed that
I had considerable strength left by land
ing on Choynskl's jaw and stopping him.
"The punch I knocked him out with was
started before the bell rang in the third
round. I fought fairly, and If a mistake
was made, it was not mine. I thought I
could whip Choynskl. I did and I think I
Referee White said: "McCoy was not
knocked out. I counted nine and McCoy
got up just as I counted ten. Then the
bell rang and I and the fighters thought
the round was over. It seems there was
a misunderstanding. The timekeeper had
taken It upon himself to count McCoy
and rang the bell. Ho had no business to
do It. It was my place, and I say McCoy
was not out. He was up before I finished
"The punch McCoy struck Choynskl as
the bell rang was unpremeditated, and
while It knocked Choynskl down, did not
affect the result. Choynskl was very sick
from a punch in tho stomach when the
bell rang for the fourth. He refused to
come from his corner, and I was com
pelled to give the fight to McCoy."
Many of the spectators, when seen
around the up-town hotels late last night,
declared that Choynskl should have been
given more consideration, and there were
not a few who hinted at "jobbery." On
the other hand, the managers of the club
and McCoy's followers aver that every
thing was fair, and that Referee White
could, under the circumstances, have ren
dered no other decision.

ONE DRUGGIST SPEAKS.
He Points Out Danger to the Saloons
PORTLAND Jan. 12. (To the Edltor.)
I am a pharmacist and I wouldj like to
have a few questions of no little' import
ance to our craft answered.
If The Oegonian cannot answer them
satisfactorily It Is In a position- to present
them to the license committee or to the
Retail Liquor Dealers' Association, so
that they may be answered.
There ar,e nearly GO drug stores in the
city, and over 200 pharmacists are anx
iously awaiting enllghtment.
Question 1. Is the level-license measure,
now in the hands of the license commit
tee, Intended to compel all drug stores to
take out a saloon license or discontinue
the sale of spirituous liquors?
2. If a pharmacy takes out a- license
will it be entitled to all the benefits and
privileges enjoyed by the saloon brawls,
police espionage, patrol wagon, etc.?
3. How will it be with the druggist who
is a church member or a deacon in the
church? Can he run his pharmacy in the
manner desired by the Retail Liquor
Dealers' Association and still retain his
membership and his office?
4. Will the druggist, if he complies with
the law, be compelled to sell liquor by the.
drink to any sober thirsty person who
demands it and tenders him the current
saloon price for the same?
5. Is there not a state law which pro
hibits the Issue of a saloon license within
a certain distance from a school building?
If the city cannot Issue a saloon license
to 10 or 12 drug stores who are already es
tablished in business within the restricted
limits, will It not be liable for damages
for such action?
G. If such an ordinance Is passed, will It
provent physicians from prescribing
whisky or brandy? Will it prevent phar
macists who are M. Ds. from giving it
to customers who profess to have the
stomach ache? Will If keep the phar
macist from standing in with a doctor
and getting him so to prescribe? Perhaps
a doctor could be found who would take
the job of obliging a half dozen phar
macists for a less sum than the cost of
a single quarter's license.
7. The state law restricts the practice
of pharmacy, so as to exclude the ignor
ant from our ranks, and compels the
pharmacist to stand somewhat above the
average of the bartender. Is it fair to
bring the pharmacist to the same level?
It is a fact that there is scarcely a sa
loon in the city that does not violate the
pharmacy law every' day by selling drugs
and dispensing medicines. It is possible

that the R. L. D. A. wishes to improve
Its respectability and personality by an
nexing the pharmacists.
S. Does the Retail Liquor Dealers' As
sociation wish the competition cf CO or
so saloons of established respectability?
If the druggist pays so h:gh a license will
he not endeavor to divert a great deal of
trade from the saloon? Will not the
R. L. D. A. probably have cause to regret
the passage of. such an ordinance?
D. Would It not be better to add some
thing like the following to the ordinance
now in force? "Any person, firm or cor
poration advertising liquors or spirituous
articles at cut rates, or making conspic
uous window or store displays of the
same, or selling or disposing of such
goods to be drunk on the premises, shall
be considered to be a saloon-keeper
within the meaning of this ordinance and
subject to a license ot $100 per quarter."
10. If there are drug stores In the clty
that are little better than saloons; if
there are those that sell liquor by the
glass or dispense It through their soda
fountains, is It not better for the Retail
Liquor Dealers' Association to frame an
ordinance which will reach them and see
that It is enforced, rather than cope
down on the whole body of pharmacists,
the majority of whom, I sincerely believe,
are trying to do a clean and legitimate
drug business? PHARMACIST.
