Washington, .Ian. 13.—The senate committee on privileges aud election* began Its session In the Clark OBMC with n request from the prosecution to have the booka of the Thomas Cruse Savings bank ut Helena, Mont., showing the deposits of A. ,?. Davidson and a man tin mod Toole brought before 'the committee. The original subpoena had only called for the deposit slips. The point was .not decided. E. I,, r. Ector. a dentist, at Mlssoula, was the tlrst witness. He had participated In tlie campaign In Ilnvalll county in the Interest of E. I'. Wood, who wits the Democratic candidate for the legislature In the last campaign, nnd who wns a friend of Mr. Clark. Sir. Ector said he hud acted at the Instance of Mr. Blckford, one of Mr. ('lark's managers. A number of letters from Blckford were exhibited. In one of these, written after the legislative election, Mr. Bickford referred to the presence of "Our friend" In Hamilton and asked "Mr.v Ector to ascertain what, liln financial condition was. Mr. Ector said "Our friend" was Mr. Wood and that lie replied to this letter saying that his Indebtedness wns $(1,500, and that $7,000 would probably he neconsnry to settle all his debts. Afterward Mr. Rlckfowl had given him $7.000 tn give to Wood. He hud then refused to'accept the money, tplllng Blekford It was "All off, as Wood had told him that he could not afford to sell himself." Wiintod All !l« OouM (ipt. The witness said that Bickford had promised to pny him for his services, but that no specific sum had been mentioned. "Me nsked how much 1 expected," said the witness, "and I told him I wanted nil 1 could get out of it. I continued by saying 'No doubt you will make a stake out of it.' He asked me how 10 per cent, would do. I said 'That would be satisfactory, as 1 have no doubt you will get SliO.OOO or •IttViOO out of it.' " It appeared that no settlement was made with him by Mr. Bickford aud Unit .Mr. Kcibr wrote to Senator Clark about the matter. There was a correspondence with that gentleman beginning Dec.. ](J, 18!)8. ami closing Nov. S, 181(0. These letters were read to show that Mr. Blckford had been the agent of Mr. Clark In the senatorial race. In tlie first letter Mr. Clark said that the mutter concerning which Ector had written him had been "left entirely in the hands of Mr. Bickford." nnd that lie would confer witli that gentleman concerning the matter. Would lit- n Hot Thn-?. In the second letter, dated .7au, 28, 1800. Mr. Clark spoke of the fact that he had just been elected, saying Blck- ford was wild with joy, nud that, there would be a hot old time iu the town that'lilght. adding that while he .had no personal knowledge as what he hud done, he "Never disappointed any one who had helped him." This lust statement was practicndy repeated from Paris in April last, and in another letter written from New York on Nov. 8 last. In tlie New York letter Mr. Clark said he would refer Ector's matter to Blckford and in the Paris letter he said It wns his desire that "Any one who served him should be amply remunerated." One of the letters of the series was signed In typewriter and the defense objected to its admission. This objection brought out the first division in the committee. Senators McComas and Caffery casting the only votes ngnlust admission. AppriincliiMl by Hicktord. Cross-examination was postponed until the defense could look up the letters received from Ector. Representative I'. (J. Sullivan, u member of the last Montana legislature from Granite county, testified flint he had been approached by Mr. Blckford when he wont to Helena previous to tue meeting of the legislature, nud asked to vote for Mr. Clark. "1 said," the witness testified, "that I might do so If there was enough In It. He asked how much. I snid S'JO.OOO. He asked me If half that amount would not be enough. I replied no, and we separated," Sulliviin said that afterward he had again met Blckford. nnd that the latter had suggested $15.000. He had told Bickford then that he would not vote for (Mark under any circumstances, aud had seen no more of him. FAVOHS Mt'ARAftlM CANAL.

Washington, Jan. 13. — The secretary of the navy lias, in response to a request of the donate, transmitted a letter written by Admiral (then Commodore) Dewey from Hong Kong, before he sailed to Manila, lu which he expressed confidence that lie could capture the Spanish fleet and reduce tlie defenses of Manila lu cue. day. The letter is written on the flagship Olympla and ;s dated March 31. iSBs. It reads; "Sir; On the receipt of your tele gram of Feb. 20, the Olympia, Kale;gr. and 1'etret were at this port, and tiie Boston and Concord were at CheiuuJ po, Corea. The two latter vessels wefe ordered here at once and arrived five days later. Since that time the vessels have heeu kept full of the best coal obtainable, provisioned and ready to move at twenty-four hours' notlo.;. From inspection during the last mouth I find the. squadron In u high state of efficiency. I have bueu iu cummuul- catlon with reliable persons iu Manila and am able to give you what 1 believe to be a true account of the defenses of that place, which are as follows: The SpunUli Fleet. "The cruiser Hema Christina of ii,000 tons, the wooden cruiser Ciistilhi, of 3.8-12 tons: iht> gunboats Don Juau do Austria, and Ishi i.le Luzon, of 1,140 respectively: about twelve tinned tugs ;iud launches for river service: a bai- tery of tive or possibly CVfe-iuch jruus on CuiTljfiKlor island at the entrance to Manila bay. twenty-seven miles from tin.' city. These gnus have only been mounted- during the last month. There U a clear channel on u:lch side .of this Island, one two and the other live miles in width. A small, quick buttery is at Cavlte, the naval station. seven miles by water from the cily. Batteries similar to these tire along the water front of the city itself, and a small fort at the entrance to the I'nsig river. About lii.OUO soldiers of all arms in all islands, of which half are ia rlie vicinity of .Manila. The islands arc now in a state of insurrection, and my Informants state even that the Spanish soldiers, who constitute only n small part of the whole, are disaffected Both ships and forts' are in necil of ammunition. One Uny's Work. "I believe 1 am not over-confident in stating that with the squadron now under uiy command the vessels could be taken and the defenses at Manila reduced iu one day. There is every reason to believe that, with Manila taken or eveu blockaded, the rest of the islands would fall either to the iu- surgents or ourselves, as they are only held now through the support of tlu> navy and are dependent upon Manila for supplies. ' Information has just reached IUP that there are 5,000 armed re,bels in camp near Manila who are willing to assist us." IJnit,ed Stajes Treasurer Roberts and Assistant Secretary Allen, representing the Dewey fund committee, presented to Admiral Dewey two superbly bound volumes containing the names of the contributors to the fund and a history of the movement to raise the money for tho home. .CABLEGRAM FROM OTIS.

STEAMER WRECKKD ANlToX FIRE. No Hope for Any of the I'eople flenching Shore A)lvi>, St. Johns. N. F., Jan. 13.—Belated reports from the magistrate and wrecking commissionedat St. Mary's give the following additional partlcu lars in regard to a steamer wrecked In St. Mary's bay: "She is a two-masted vessel and is a complete wreck. Only three gurvl vors were visible at nightfall. The vessel's bouts were smashed and were floating bottom up. The crew had probably tried to land lu the boafs and had been drowned in the attempt. Some bodies are visible in tut} surf. The ship is on fire aft. She has some kerosene on board, but she Is not thought to be « tank steamer, as It is pointed out a tank steamer would explode from the fire. It is feared she will break up owing to the heavy sea." ,The magistrate also reports that she Is a new ship and is probably a passenger boat. One theory Is that the steamer took fire at SJMI; that tho captain thereupon tried to make land, and that the vessel struck ou the coast during a storm. No hope Is entertained that the lives of any of those oil board the vessel will be saved. Nothing Is known of her name or personnel. For the Baby The fifty-cent size is just right for the baby. A little of it in the bottle three or four times a day will supply precisely the fat all thin babies need. If your baby does not gain in weight as fast as you would like, try Scott's Emulsion The result will please you. If the baby nurses, the mother should take the emulsion» It makes the baby's food richer and more abundant; only buy the dollar size-it's more economical. Both mother and child will feel at once ib strengthening, upbuilding and fat-producing properties. At all druggists; Soc. and *i.oo. SCOTT & BOWNE, ChemUts, New York. QPavb*. £)rs. Q. and H. Taphorn.
