Special to The Gazette.
Helena, Jan. 13.-Clark gained one
vote in the joint session at noon today.
the vote of Senator Cullen of Dawson,
who had voted for Toole before. Con
rad, last night, claimed six additional
votes, but his vote was unchanged.
Judge Henry of Livingston developed

votes of Moore of Meagher and Swindle

Conrad, 35; Clark, 22; Sanders, 14;
Hoffman, 1; Henry, 2; Toole, 11;
Hartman, 1; Mantle, 1; Fox, 3; Ma
The republicans held a caucus last

day were marked by no special incident.
Clark Gain' Tihree Votes--Gi uwell Is Now
Helena, Jan. 11.-Judge McIntyre
of the district court this morning or
dered a grand jury empowered to inves
tigate the charges of bribery in connec
tion with the senatorial fight. The
court stated that he had received a
communication from the legislature
requesting that a grand jury be called
to investigate the bribery charges. He
believed there was need for such a
body. The clerk was accordingly in
structed to draw fifteen names from
the box. By a strange coincidence
the first name drawn from the box was
John A. Welcome, a citizen of Helena.
All but one of the prospective grand
jurors live in Helena. The sheriff was
instructed to make return Saturday at
10 a. m.
There were no more developments to
day in the further investigation of
bribery. The joint committee is con
tinued and will probably be heard from
later in the week.
Both houses met this morning and
after brief sessions adjourned until
noon when the first joint session to bal
lot for United States senator was held.
The result was:
Conrad, 38; Toole, 20; Marshall, 15;
Clark, 10; Hoffman, 2; Hartman, 4;
Mantle, 1; Frank. 1; Fox. 2; total,
93; one absentee.
