Says Equitable Contributed $10,000 a
Year to State Campaign Fund, the
Mutual the Same, and the New York
Life a Less Sum Occasionally.
New York. Nov. 22. Tho identity of
Senator Depew's "rantnnkerous friend
from up the river" was disclosed In
the session of the state legislative in
surance investigation committee by
the testimony of John A. Nichols, a
lawyer under retainer by the EquUable
Life Assuranco society. Mr. Nichols
had written Senator Depew a letter
referring to an Individual In the above
terms and this letter was read at the
session of the committee Friday, when
Senator Depew was on the stand.
The senator was unable to recall who
was meant by the "rantankerous
friend," but Mr. Nichols disclosed n
series of payments to W. S. Manning
of Albany, a former actuary, who had
been connected with the investigation
of insurance companies In 1877. Mr.
Hughes Inquired as to a report that
Manning had been in possession of
the Information that was suppressed
during this Investigation and that
would have been detrimental to the
Equitable. Mr. Nichols could not re
call the suppression of Information,
but he detailed the payment of sums
of money over a considerable period to
Manning as an Inducement to give up
his business as actuary, In which ca
pacity he believed Manning was a
menace to the Equitable Life. Mr.
Nichols said ho was paid a retainer
from the Mutual and the New York
Life for the same duties, that of "tak
ing care of Manning," as Mr. Hughes
nhnrjirtorlzod dt. He added that the
I navmentu by the Equitable for Man-
. 1 1
nlng were made to Mcnoia on voucners .
bearing false names, which Mr. Nich
ols said was done to protect Manning.
i Piatt Tells of Campaign Contributions.

! Nichols on the witness stand, the
feature of the day was the appearance

VOTE FOR A SEA LEVEL CANAL.
Board of Consulting Engineers Ar
rives at a Decision.
Wnshlnglon, Nov. 20.- Tho board or
consulting engineers of the Isthmian
canal commission have decided to sub
stitute Brussels for Paris as the meet
ing place of the foreign members next
January. The report will be ready for
publication nbout Dec. 31. From tho
beginning the board was divided Into
two groups, eight In favor of the sea
level canal and live In favor of a lock
canal. The sea level canal will have
a width at the bottom of 150 feet, ex
cept in the Culebra cut, where that
width will be 200 feet. The plan, as
adopted by tho board, would make
Llmon bay one of the greatest harbors
of the world. Almost through the mid
dle of the bay a breakwater will bo
built and a shorter breakwater will bo
built from San Cristobal, which Is
American territory, thereby leaving
Colon, which belongs to the republic
of Pnmuna. outside of tho American
canal works. Under the plan as
adopted by the board San Cristobal
is expected to become the chief city

j canal constructed by tho French be
' gan at San Cristobal. It Is now pro
posel by the board to build a short di
rect canal from Mlndl to Llmon bay,
thereby making the dlstanco shorter
by a few hundred yards nnd also facil
itating navigation nnd making It pos
sible for ships to sail Into tho canal
without having to mako any dllllcult
On the Pacific side, at Tanamn, tho
plans as adopted are also different
from those of the French Canal com
pany. Tho French canal ends at Ut
IJoca and it was found as one of tho
difficulties that the Hlo Ornnde, with
Its many branches, crosses the caunl,
and in the rainy season Inundates It
and does great damage to the works
already constructed by the French.
Therefore It was decided the canal
"should be built nearer to the city of
Panama and should run between two
hills, one called Sosa and the othet
Ancon. The cost of the sea level
canal Is estimated by the engineers at
one' year for 4 1
RUSSIAN STRIKE ENDS.
Council of Workmen Passes Resolution
Not to Seek Shorter Day.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 20. Tho con
servative leaders In the council of
workmen are again victorious. This
morning they carried a resolution
against any attempt to introduce al
movement for an eight-hour day, after
having previously decided to abandon
the industrial strike.
The high sounding proclamatlbn
with which the council of workmen an
nounced the end of the strike, declar
ing that the "demonstration" had
served its purpose by saving the lives
of the mutineers at Cronstadt, which
of course Is principally a blind to
cover defeat, as the trials of tho mu
tineers are still In progress, Is at tho
same time shrewd tactics for use In
the propaganda which the council Is
actively pushing among the army and
navy. Such a claim, however, .cannot
disguise tho fact that the strike was
inaugurated to compel the government
not only to pardon unconditionally the
mutineers, but to abolish martial law
In Poland and to compel the calling
of a constituent assembly, none of
which objects has been achieved.
The refusal of the affiliated organlza-1
tlons in the Interior to respond to the I
call and the revolt of many of tho
better class of workmen here against
the dictation of political agitators
and walking delegates by no means
represents the full measure of the real
defeat of the strike movement. The
strike, by alienating public sympathy
and opening the eyes of Intelligent
liberals and moderates to the fact that
the first duty of the hour was to stand
by tho government In Its efforts to
tranqullizo the country and to mako
headway against the tide of socialism
and revolution, which was threaten
ing Russia with anarchy, aided great
ly In the formation of tho now "law
and order" party, which has now
sprung Into formidable being.
Interest has now shifted to Moscow,
where the zemstvo congress opened
yesterday. The members of tho party
Philadelphia Fund Is $60,000.
Philadelphia. Nov. 20. About a
dozen mass meetings of Jewish resi
dents were held In various parts of tho
city In the Interest of the fund being
raised for tho relief of Jewish suffer
ers In Russia. A total of about $2,000
was collected. More than $60,000 was
contributed to the relief funds by citi
zens of all creeds In this city last
week. Several meetings of a revolu
tionary character were held. At one
gathering $500 was collected for tho
fund being raised by the silf-defenso
committee of the Jewish bund, which
Is said to bo quite strong In Russia.
Four Bodies Recovered.
Kiel, Nov. 20. Divers discovered
