LONDON, Feb. 9. Again the War Office
Is silent, and again it is awrrottnded by
"orowos of anxious men and women, enquir
ing whether their particnlar dear ones are
included in the list of nearly 300 report ed
yaeteroay by General Bailor as killed or
iniasing. The Office announces that it has
received no news from Buller, and London
has learned to regard no news as very
bad news indeed. Consequently, the silence
is fraught with fear to the minds of the
waiting multitude.
The second advance to the relief of Lady
smhh is regarded with apprehension, and
the English people rather expect each day
to hear of another disaster to their arms.
Bailor's request for an additional one hun
aoa' stretchers, presumably to bear the
wowadod from the battlefield, is considered
ominous. According to the popular mind
it Intimates another check to the expedi
tion. That a battle is proceeding, or has b"in
in progress for some lime, is regarded cs
certain. If there wore no other indicitions
of this, the departure from Cape Town to

The State Department received a tele
gram today front Adelbert S. Hay, United
States Consul at Pretoria, saying that the
Transvaal- Government had granted him
his exequatur on Wednesday and that ev
erything was satisfactory.
This information is gratifying to the de
partment as it indicates .1 purpose on the
part of the Boer authorities to show a cor
dial fooling toward the new American
Consul.
It disposes alao of the story that the
Transvaal would not recognize Mr. Hay
officially becaube Montagu White had not
received recognition as the Transvaal dip

General Mardonald sent word to Modder

Accordingly, Major General Babington, in

two batteries of artillery, was despatched
to the front. This force has failed to
reach here though it started in time to

More Testimony Heard in the Case of
Mr. ClarU.
A. J. Steele, of Helena, a witness in be
half of Senator W. A. Clark, resumed the
stand before the Committee on Privileges
and Elections of the Senate this morning.
It is Steele who. Whiteside and Rector tes
tified, rented the chambers in the Powers
Block in Helena in which it is alleged sev
eral members of tlie Montana Legislature
were corrupted.
Under his direct examination, which was
conducted by former Senator Faulkner
yesterday the witness denied consistently
and with great emphasis the allegation
made by Whiteside, Rector, and other Da
ly witnesses. He made a good impression
on the committee.
The first question this morning was by
Mr. Foster:
"Mr. Steele did you over pay to Mr. Rec
tor any sum of money to watch the grand
jury or any member thereof?"
"No, sir."
"Did you ever pay anybody in Montana
to watch anybody?"
"No, sir."
The cross-examination of Steele was con
ducted by Mr. Birney.
"Did you take part in the campaign of
ISPS?"
"I did. sir.'
"Were jou
committee?"
"No, sir. '
"At whose suggestion then did you enter
the campaign?"
"Well, we talked it over myself. Mr.
Davidson, Mr. Neille and Governor How
Mr." "Who employed you?"
"No one employed me."
"Who gave you instructions?"
"Usually I talked matters ocr with the
gentlemen 1 have named."
The object of this line of examination
was to show an agency existing between
Steele and Senator Clark.
"What trips did you make away from
Helena after the election?"
"I went to Great Falls, in Cascade coun
ty, and to White Sulphur Springs."
"Did you see any member of the Legis
lature?" "Yes, sir."
"How much money did you carry
you on those trips?"
"Barely enough for my personal
penses."
"Where did you get that money?"
"From Mr. Davidson, of Helena."
"Did you keep any memoranda of your
expenditures on those trips?"
"No. sir."
"Who authorized you to hire rooms in
Helena, and which you finally did rent in
the Powers Block?"
"I do not remember."
"Did you tell Rector what you wantod
those rooms for?"
"I think I did."
"What did you tell him?"
"That I wanted a suite of rooms for po
litical headquarters."
"For whom?"
'Tor Senator Clark's friends."
"Did not Senator Clark have headquar
ters at the Helena Hotel?"
"No. sir, not at the time that I rented
the rooms in the Powers Block."
"Did you have any money in your pos
session ?"
"1 think everal hundred dollars."
"DM yon giro Rector any money?"
"Yes, I think about $75."
"From whom dW you get that money?"
"Front Mr. Davidoon."
"Did yon keep a record of the sums you
expended ?"
"No, elr. "When ray money ran out I
would go and get some more from Air. Du
vWson." "How much did you get from Mr. David
son?" "About $1,000."
"Did yon get any money from Mr. Well
oome?" "Yes: l'think Isgot five or six thousand
dollars from Mr. Wellcome."
Senator Burrows asked the witness when
he got the first money. from Wellcome.
"It was after the election of the members
of the Legislature and before the election
of United States Senator."
Mr. Birney questioned the witness con
cerning his testimony before the grand ju
ry of Lewis and Clarke county.
When asked as to whom he paid money,
he aid he had given ?."iC0 or ?6C to Mr.
Gallaher. of Great Falls, a political worker;
Mr. Hepburn, "a good fellow who was well
acquainted," about ?J00. He also paid
money to George Murphy, L. L. AVright,
Dick Welsh, and several others for cam
paign uses.
Mr. Birney questioned Mr. Steele about
his meeting with Judge Garr, from Colum
bia Falls, at the Montana Central dtpot.
at Helena. His testimony before the grand
jury and his testimony in chief before the
Senate commitee were compare 1. and dis
crepancies discovered. Mr. Steel" com
plained that the report of his testimony
before the grand jury was inaccurate.
Many witnesses have made the same .o:n-plaint.
Senator Hoar wanted to kno.v whether
the witness had seen the allege 1 report
of his testimony. The witness raid he had
read it in Montana, and had lacn po uted
out some of the inaccuracies.
Mr. Steele was followed on the itne
stand by Stale Senator W. E. Tierncy. of
Townsend, Broadwater county, lie 'as
called for the purpose of testif.. inj; in ie
buttal to certain allegations concerning his
financial condition before and after the
meeting of the Legislature. He said that
before his election to the State Senate he
was worth $40,000 or $30,000. He told the
committee as to how this wealth was in
vested In banking, placer mines, town
sites and ranches. It was maintained by
the memorialists that at the time of Mr.
Tierney's election to the State- Senate he
was worth only about $4,000.
Mr. Tierncy explained some of the large
deposits in the Townsend bank made by
him in the spring of 1SS9, after the ad
journment of the Legislature. -He said
the money was obtained from the sale of
other people's property and the money
was deposited by him in the name of the
firm of J. D. Darcey & Co., of which he
was a member, and which firm had nego
tiated the sales.
At 12:15 o'clock the committee adjourn
ed until tomorrow morning.

Inside the church the scene was one of
solemn beauty. The floral decorations were
magnificent. The fragrance of the flowers
reached to the street, and their combina
tions in lilies, violets, and roses formed a
perfect floral scheme. Here a mound of
lilies reached up to the hanging smila.x.
There a bank of red roses, interspersed
with delicate forget-me-nots, mingled its
perfume with huge violet bouquets near by.
Behind the dead officer's casket rose a
mountain of fragrant azaleas, tangled with
hyacinths, their color magnified by the
green background of magnificent palms.
From all corners sweep wide bands of
crepe, which were gathored in the centre
and In the dome by strings of foliage.
Flats were everjwhere to be seen, and
those who passed in this beautiful room
will retain an impression of it for a long
time to come.
It is doubtful if so effective a decoration
for a funeral occasion has oyer been seen
in Washington. y wreaths and bou
quets presented by .organizations and pri
vate parties were many and artistically
arranged by the Government florist,
George Brown, acting under Col. T. A.
Bingham, who had charge of the church
and the seating of the guests at the fu
neral services.
Every phase of Washington life was rep
resented in the congregation. The ming
ling of the glittering uniforms of the offi
cers with the bright colors of the gowns
of the women; the beauty of the flowers,
touched everywhere with sombre black,
made a picture that will scarce ever be
forgotten by the people present.
The simple ritual of the Presbyterian
Church constituted the church ceremony.
The services were conducted by Rev. T. S.
Hamlin, pastor of the church. An elo
quent eulogy on the dead soldier was de
liered by Rev. Dr. M. Woolseiy Striker,
of Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y., who
leviewed the career of General Lawton
from birth and held it up as an example
of the truest patriotism that any man could
show. He paid a touching tribute to the
worth of the man and soldier. It was an
address full of tender and beautiful
thoughts. "In some good day," he said,
in conclusion, "not far away, please God,
when those islands, foundlings no longer,
shall have been rendered as a majestic
dedication to civilization, to regulated
freedom, and 10 the God of these there in
fair Luzon, right where he fell, front to
his duty, let the valiant frame of this true
liberator rise in immutable bronze, while,
understanding us at last, our brown
brothers, gazing upon that statue, stature,
statute, all in one, shall say: "He was
America's, but he is ours, too Lawton!
He was slain by us ignorantly in un
belief; but he has forgiven." Dr.
Strycker spoke for nearly three
quarters of an hour. When he concluded
the pallbearers gathered around the cas
ket and cairied it down the aisle to the
door.

Carriages for the clergy-stood behind their
horses impatiently straining at the bits.
Next in line was the heavy caisson, draped
in the colors of Old Glory, ready to receive
the mortal remains of (lie dead soldier and
convey them to their last resting place.
Behind the caisson stood a horse sad
dled and bridled and lid by an orderly.
The stirrups were crossed in the seat of
the saddle, indicating thnt the steed of the

Passing out at the M Street entrance of
the church the widow and children of the
deceased general entered the carriages in
waiting. Following them were other rela
tives, personal friends, and fellow-offi
cers of General Lawton. The carriages
when filled wound around and took posi
tion behind the riderless horse.
At this moment the Commanding General
and staff moved to the right of the line on
K Street and Connecticut Avenue.
The signal was then given for the fun
eral cortege to advance. The Third United
States Cavalry Band sounded the strains
of the funeral march and the procession
moved up Eighteenth Street slowly and
with solemn tread toward Pennsylvania
Avenue. As each division of the cortege
was uncovered by the advance the various
commands of military and the carriages of

in the following order:
The carriages containing the President

Next came the Third Squadron of the

"The column proceeded slowly through
Connecticut Avenue to K Street to Penn
sylvania Avenue. Both sides of these
thoroughfares were lined with people who
silently viewed the spectacle. Here and
there, a head was uncovered as the caisson
passed, out of respect to the memory of the
brave man, who fell fighting his country's
battles. The cortege passed along the Ave
nue to M Street, and proceeded thence to
the Aqueduct Bridge. Here the heavy siege
battery left the line, being unable to draw
the heavy guns up the hill af Arligton.
s the procession passed over Aaueduct
Bridge, the U. S. P. Sylph, under command
of Lieutenant W. K. Gise, began firing min

The latter refused to confirm the state

here he replied: "Wait and see."
"Will you return to Frankfort to&ir:"
was asked.
"Not today, at least," was his reply.

the agreement provided it was sx changed 1 is believed by tho official
as to provide for an election law to be
drafted by two Democrats and two Re
publicans, with Judge Alexander Humphrey
as the fifth man. and also to provide for
the ratification by each house separately
of the election of Goebel and Beckham. If
he insists upon this there will be no agree
ment for the Democrats. They say thsy ac
cepted about all the suggestions made by
the Republicans at the Louisville confer
ence, and they do not intend to budge fn-m
the position which both sides unanimously
agreed upon.
With' a view to carrying out their good
faith in the matter of maintaining the sit
uation in statu quo until Monday Judge W.
S. Pryor will go to Georgetown tomorrow
and on behalf of the Democrats ask Judge
Cantrill to grant a postponement of the in
junction proceedings against Taylor and
Collier until next week.
Former Governor Bradley, in a public
statement, denies the charge of the Demo
crats that the fighting of tho Federal peti
tion was base treachery and a violation of
tho peace agreement.
