Choate reports In this communication Lord
Salisbury's suggestion that tho British gov
ernment settlo the matter by taking tho flour
aud paying for It at Its price at Hb destina
tion. Choate urged such salo to tho British gov
ernment as tho simplest nnd easiest method
of settlement. This question was still pend

On tho 17th Choato reported that the cargo
of tho Beutrlco had been discharged nt East
London und that thcro was no allegation
ngalnat it, no seizure having boen contem
plated; that tho cargo of the Mario was at
Durban, freo for Its owners to take; that the
Mashona was nt Capetown, but that owing
to tho fact that there wero no bills of lad
ing there was much difficulty in dealing
with its cargo, incidentally. Choato states

sion of the British authorities that largo
quantities of tho flour carried by the Be

republic, making It necessary to laud nt
Hast Londou, as It wn Imposslblo to dis
charge this part of tho cargo without dis
charging tho remainder, allowing removal ot
parts of tho cargo for local Portuguese con

ceptlons to this proceedure, saying It was
','ln conflict with tho assurances that food

ing testimony was developed today In tho In

privileges nnd elections In the case of W. A.
Clark to tho senate from Montann. Justice
Hunt, a republlchh Montann member of the

(the Justice) regarded ns attempts to con
sider a $100,000 bribe to favor Lawyer Well
come, ono of Clark's attorneys In tho dis
barment proceedings against Wellcome.
Tho witness did not, directly at least, con
nect Clnrk with this bribery proposition, so
Knulkuer, Clark's counsel, tnoved to strike
tho wholo testimony from the record, but
dld( not succeed. Tho witness testified that

for tho prosecution In this case. Ho said
Mr, Itowitt had spoken of tho Wellcome dis
barment caso and In response to nn Inquiry
had said that Wellcome "did not stand n
ghost of n chnnce," and would bo disbarred.
Hi said that It did not make riny difference
whether Wellcome was guilty of the uffenso
charged, ns L. .y owned the court nnd tho
case was being conducted with a view to

he had known Mr. Wellcome socially, but

Coyno was excused temporarily In order to

Justlco Hunt's testimony created a pro
found Impression; Ho detailed four different
conversations ho had hud with his family
physician, Dr. William Tracey of Helena, In
two ot which, hr beHevodithc doctor, had nt -tem'ptcU'
to' lay Wforc him a proposition to
bribe blip In tljq. Wellcome disbarment case.
which was at that time before the' ctlurt bf
which tho wltne.wwas a member. The first
f thwo conversations' had occurred on Au

disbarment proceedings and ho wont to Dr,

"When I went to his ofllce," said the wit
ness, "Dr. Tracey Invited nid to a back
room. Ho spld M havo a funny kind of n
proposition which has como up for you,' "
The doctor then wont on to tell, according
to Judge Hunt's statement, that he (the
doctor) was taking an Intercut In the Well
como case, which ho said ho understood was
not llko ordinary .cases In conrt. lie had
been told, be said, that it was largely n
matter In tho discretion of the members ot
the court, continuing that ho understood the
disbarment proceedings to bo n political
fight largely, ami adding that while he. did
not know Mr. Wellcome ho understood ho
was a decent fellow. Judge Hunt said that
he had replied to all this to tbo effect that
while there was n certain amount of legal
discretion permitted the caso would have
to tako its course Just ns auy other case,
Ho himself felt that It was a painful duty,
becousc ho knovfMr. Wellcome's reputation
and altogether he would gladly avoid It If he
could. Dr. Tracey then said to him, accord
Ing to tho wltnoso!
'I don't suppose, then, there is any uso
to lay my proposition before you."
Without, however, waiting for any formal
reply tho witness said the doctor had- pro
ceeded ns follows
"There Is n party here who has got $100,-
000 and who wants to put It up if that case
can bo thrown out ot court."
Justice Hunt nald that ho was not certain
whether Dr. Tracey had usp1 the singular or
tho plural pronoun In speaking of tho party
not sure whether bp said he or they
Justlco Hunt said thai he bad replied lo
Mr. Tracey that "not all tho money In tho

every dollar that Daly nnd Clark nre both

that I was only Joking In our conversations

Tracey that ho wished ho could believe thai
ho was only Joking, but that he could not
put that construction on bin proposition. Ho
did not, however, bollevo that Dr. Tracey
meant to actually bribe him, but simply to
lay tho proposition before him.
In Hnswcr to questions, Justice Hunt said
ho thought Dr. Trncoy had mentioned Sena
tor Clark's name in tho first conversation
when ho hnd spoken of tho Wellcomo case as
merely a political light between Mr. Clark
nnd Mr. Daly. He hnd first related the fact
of tho propositions being made to him on
the night of August 5. when his associate,
Justice Plggott. had come to his houso und
related that ho had bei approached ou tho

Tho motion was overruled and tho cross-

thnt 'before Dr. Traccy had made the propo
sition to him ho hnd considered him u man
of pre-eminently good character. Hq did
not beliovo tho doctor had stopped to think
of tho enormity of the proposition and he
still resarded him ns n good man. Witness

Judgo Hunt replied that ho was so humili
ated he did not care to disclose It; ho pre
ferred not to.
Q You preferred to allow the attempt
to perpetrate such a crime to go unpunished?
A. It would have been embarrassing lo
mo as a Judge.
Q. It wa n contempt of court?
A. I did not take notice of it.
Witness said Judge Plggott felt tho same
way nbout It. Hp hnd Immediately notified
his brother Judges nfter the Interviews of
August 5, and after the Interview of Novem

and notified the chief Justice.
Q. Did you Inform your associates thnt
It.Jiad been a serious proposition?
A. It never occurred, to roe that It could
have been a Jocular Interview until It was
suggested to me by Dr. Tracey later.
Q. Dr. Tracey alluded to no one?

by recalling the fact that Ird Bacon said
ho only accepted bribes to do Justice. "But

thnt Dr. Tracey wanted a dismissal of the

after tho demurrer had been overruled. How
could the cues men be dismissed?
