QUESTIONS MORGAN GIFT.
Methodist Orttnn Criticises Protes
tant Kplseopiil World Conference.
liAl.Tl.MOHK, Aug. 10. The world con
ference on faith and order Is assailed
and the late .1. P. Morgan's motive In
giving 1 1 00,1100 to the organization Is
questioned editorially by the llaltlmoie
Mrlhoillnl. which sas:
"Tlie Protestant Episcopal Church Is
planning on a great conference on faith
and order. There seems to be an under
lying .scheme of a comprehensive reor
ganization of Protestant churches. Per
haps they would like to turn us all into
Episcopalians. They are also trying to
change the name of their church to 'the
American Catholic Church.'
"The Protestant Episcopal Church has
never done much to prove Its claim to
spiritual leadership. It has pulled back
Instead of pushed ahead when the work
of reviving pure and undented religion
was on hand. Maybe they can manage
things so skilfully Hint the great 'sect' can
be brought back Into the Held. When
we are told that the great financier
the greatest of the trust organlxers of this
.or any age John Plerpont Morgan, gave
100,000 to bring this nbout we may well
take notice. There Is no telling what
J100.000 may do when 'wisely' (?) ex
pended. "As a matter of fact one church has
as much right as another to lay clnlm
to being 'the church.'"

Albant, Aug. 10. flow Sulxer, after
maintaining silence for three days legard
Ing the illsclosuies made by the Frawley
committee concerning his campaign con
tributions ntnl stock market speculations,
Issued a statement late to-night making
a general denial of all the charges upon
which the I.eglslatuie expects to Institute
proceedings looking to bis Impeachment
and removal from oltlce.
The statement. Issued fiom the Execu
tive Mansion, was distributed by ClieFter
C. Piatt, the (loxernor's secretary. Mr.
Piatt explain, d that the Miitetnint wan
dictated by the Coxernor after he had
conferied with D-Cudy Merrick, Isnils
Mm. shall and other iidvlsets. The state
ment follows :
"In view of the fact that the Fiawley

of the Investigation It has been making
I am ud Used that It would be unwise foi

lieved the statement furnished by them lo
me to be accurate and true,"
Tlie members of the Frawley committee
and the committee's counsel did not conn
to Albany to-night. Tin- suggestion that
the committee Is divided on the qiustion
of Impeachment or Instituting criminal
prosecution against the Cov.rnor In re
gard to the disposition of his campaign
funds resulted In the de. I unit Ion from a
prominent Democratic attorney connected
with the State (iovermueiit that If im
peachment by the Legislature was not
possible the Democratic State organiza
tion lenders should end the controversy

surely would meet defeat there.
Would .Vol Convict.
He argued that even hi the case of in
dictment a trial Jury would not convict
tho (lovernur anil that the court proceed
ings would be so delnyed In liny event that
impeachment could not follow If the trial
failed of conviction, as by that time there
would be a new State Assembly, which
in his, opinion would be iintbTaminany.
(iov. Suiter's friends Insist that the
Legislature cannot consider Impeachment
at this extrn session or before Its next
regular session, which convenes on Janu
ary 7, nnd thev point out thnt the Court
of Appeals Judgqs will not sit In n court
of Impeachment the legality of which Is
questionable. These friends of the
fiox-ernor declare that the only way In
which the Oovernor can be proceeded
against Is in the criminal courts, nnd
they feel that If the Democratic organiza
tion leaders resort to such a procedure
the Governor will he nble to outwit his
Gov. Sulzer has not been permitted to

for the conference at the mansion to
night Mrs. Hulxer unnounced the engagement
of her youngest sister, Miss Ernestine
Kodellielm of Philadelphia, to Andrew
Freeman of Cleveland, Ohio, an'old friend
of the Hodelhclm family
In answer to the Governor's conten
tion thnt the law would not permit him
to spend more thnn 110,000 its a candi
date, It whs Insisted thnt tho Governor
acted as a trustee for nil campaign funds
exceeding 110,000 and should huvn re

penalty for grand larceny. All the State
constitutions except those of New York
and West Virginia specifically name tho
grounds upon which Impeachment pro
ceedings against a Governor can lie. This
omission In the New York State Con
stitution would permit his, Impeachment
for unfitness even.
