Falling in this, he made his way back to the rlKKlug, where he died of exposure during the nijjht. .Many dead bodies are visible tossing lu the surf. Two of them, thrown up in n cove, cannot be reached, owing to the heavy sea. One Is thought to be tliat of a \voman. Boats and other wrerkaRo are strewn among the rocks for miles. It is more stormy than the day before, and It was impossible to reach the wreck, which has gone to pieces to such an extent that it lias sunk lieiieatli the waves.

Washington, Jan. 15.—When the senate committee on privileges and elections resumed its session in the case of Senator Clark of Montana, the defense slated Dial,they had been un- uble to find the lettei-H written to Senator Clark'and Mr. Blckford by the deiHJst, Ki.-t'or, who jiad produced letters from them to him. It was then decided to have C. W. Clark, son of the senator, make a statement as to the disposition of the documents, but Mr. Clark being absent Mr. Uarr was recalled to afford Senator Tin-ley an opportunity to question hint concerning his visits to Helena prior to the meeting of the legislature last winter. Uarr said the principal object of bis visit was to .?ee about his resignation iis L'nited States commissioner. The lirst regular witness of the day was M. I*. Hcwett, u minor, who was lu Helena during the session of the legislature lu 18!«». He said that Charley Clark had asked him to see Senator Myers and offer him $10,000 for his vote for Mr. Clark for soimtor. Hi: had accordingly talked with Mr. Myers and testified that that gentleman luld told him, after llrst declining the proposition, to say to Clark that if he was disposed to do so he could put $10.000 in the hands of Mr. Whlt<;s!de, to be paid to him (Myers) lu case he should vote for Mr. Clark. Arrnitgcmznt WBN Satlafoctary. Hewett said that the senator's son stated Hint this arrangement was satisfactory and had afterward told him that the money for Myers had been given to Whlteside and that his vote was assured. 'Mr. Hewett, said that during the senatorial contest he had talked frequently with Senator Clark. Ouce ho had remonstrated with the senator concerning Wlilteside as a well known supporter of Daly, but the senator hud, he said, assured him that Whltosido's fidelity was assured because of the fact that he (Whitesldcj was iu trouble with the Clark opponents over a building he wasoou.stiwt- ing in Butte. The witness also said that he had seen tlie senator at his rooms at the Helena hotel a short time after the \Vhitesido exposure and had .-iskod him what he proposed to do. when the senator had replied: "There is only one thing to do and that Is to make believe that the Daly gang have furnished the money and have put up a conspiracy against us." "1 asked him." continued the witness "If I could make that stick, to which ho replied, 'there is no trouble about that, because if we put up a good excuse the people will believe us. and we can again gel tlie members together." " Convi-rmition uith Senator Chirk. The witness also detailed a conversation wldi h he said he bad had with Senator Clark upon the eve of the investigation by Ihe supreme court, iu which he told the yomuitor that Tom l.yoiiH. nue of Ihe .vonnror's workers, had threatened to go into court am! testify against Clark because the lat- tcr's friends had not kept iheir promises to him. According to the witness, !)io Kciialor iheli replied: "I don't owe then- (using an offensive phrase) anything. I paid them all they asked. I am undrr no obligation to them and 1 expect them to do as they agreed to do by ni'.'." Mr. Hewitt said, however, that Mr. Clark added that ho would have his son see Lyons. He said that Mr. Clark had often spoken to him of his MIU and of Messrs. \VoI!como, Bickford, Stcolo and other as his friends in the senatorial light. Wellcome and Charley Clark wore regarded as the senator's especial representatives. On cro.-s- examination Mr. Ilcwctt said ho was a Kepiiblictiu and no) especially interested in any of the senatorial candidates. He had "just drifted into" the contest. He pronounced as incorrect the report of the testimony taken before the I^wjs and Clark county 'grand jury furnished the committee by the memorialists and he added Unit he had not told all the facts to the jury. Told All to Itlrney Only. Indeed, he had never told all to any one until lie had given the details to Mr. of tlie attorneys for the memorialists In Washington a few days since. Senator Faulkner's <jues- lions were devoted to showing inconsistency on the part of the witness hi refusing to give the details to Montana repreneutatlvoB of the prosecution, whom he know, and then giving them to Mr. Blriiey, whom bo did not know. He asked Hewett whether Blr- noy had not promised to see that he was "taken care of," but the witness replied emphatically in the negative, adding that he had "received nothing and no promise of anything from the anti-Clark people for his part iu this proceedings." Under pressure lie said that when he went before the grand Jury he had desired not to reveal all his transactions during the sitting of the legislature. He had only replied to questions asked him, and ho did not consider that ho hud perjured himself in withholding some of tho facts. He had, however, made up Ills mind to toll the whole truth hero.

Yhe l rode and Commerce of Alton Seventy > Years Ago. in a book published b.v .). M. Peek in 1K31 entitled "Guide for Knii- grants," can be found the following statistic* in regard to Alton and Upper Allo)): ' Lust spring, lu April, IM;JO. Alton had .'i2 funiilios and 17(1 souls. At that time* there were one steam saw mill, one warehouse for pueking beef and pork, one carpenter, one wngoti maker, one tannery, one cooper shop with six journeymen and three apprentices, two brick makers, one brick mason, one stone mason, blaksmith, two shoe makers, one lawyer, one tavern and boarding house, and one retail store." "There are now in 1831 u. penitentiary with house for warden and officers, mechanic shop, yard, and 24 cells for convicts, three or four wholesale and retail stores, one physician, one week day and sabbath school, several mechanic shops and plan under consideration lo establish it seminary of learning in the immediate vicinity. (This institution of learning was built about two years later and called the "Alton Seminary," in Upper Alton. Its trustees were Hev. Hubbell Loomis. Enoch Long-, 13. F. Edwards, Wnr. Manning, Stephen Griggs, Cyrus Edwards. Geo. Smith, J. W. Peck, Justus Rider and James Lemen.) "A steam (louring mill is about being builf," says Mr. Peck, "and a steamboat is contemplated to be built shortly to run between this place and St. Louis. Mechanics of almost every trade are wanted here. Coopers to supply not only the demand here, but the St. Louis market in casks, barrels and firkins. One slaughter house here now in operation will furnish 500 hides yearly. A soap and candle, .chandler, cabinet makers to supply the St.' Louis market with furniture, much of the supply of that market is now brought from Cincinnati. Stone and brick masons, plasterers and carpenters are much needed. Hardly any mechanic needed in a rapidly increasing county but might, do well at Alton. We advise, however, that nonebutsober,industrious and enterprising men come to Alton—either Upper Alton or Lower Alton. The idle profligate and intemperate will find the leading men and a large majority of the people combined against them," says Mr. Peek's book. _ "Upper Alton last, spring contained 35 families and 200 souls, and at that time it had '2 stores, 1 tavern, 1 blacksmith, 1 ox /louring mill,'1 wagon maker, 1 tannery, 1 .sadsler, 1 shoe maker, 2 carpenters, 2 physicians. 1 pottery for coarse earthenware, a post office and a brick school house. At Upper Alton the first Sunday school in Illinois was opened in 1819." The contrast between Alton and Upper Alton in those primitive days and now is strong. Alton proper has not less than 15,000 population, with vast manufactories, fine schools, churches, magnificent residences, elegant paved streets and sidewalks,electricrailway?, large Hour mills, and everything indicating prosperity. Upper Alton has grown to be a village of 4,000 inhabitants, with fine institutions of learning, and excellent facilities of every kind. !N h'owrtiT M 11 Expiostoi), r 'moves everything in sight: so do d -ustiii mineral pills, but" both are mighty dangerous.
