District Attorney Whitman was one of
150 persons who were forcibly ejected
from Hculy's restaurant at Columbus
venue und Slxty-tlxth street soon after
1 o'clock this morning.
Twenty-five uniformed policemen,
headed by f'ollce Inspector John F.
Iiwycr nnd acting Capt. Hart of the West
Sixty-eighth street station, had made
their fourth descent on that place to en
force Mayor Oaynor's cafe curfew order.
The police apparently had no intention
of throwing Mr. Whitman out as ha had
come as an official. Inspector Dwyer
afterward begged his pardon. The Inci
dent was tplcnl of the rush which the
.rollcc made upon the diners.
There was In many Instances rougher
handling of men than yesterday morn
ing when the police made their third
descent. The raid this morning was the
fourth within Ave days since the Justices
of Special Sessions held that Mr. Healy

The crowd was larger, the excitement

than yesterday morning. While there
were many Instances of hard scuffling
between the police and diners, overturn

dishes. District Attorney Whitman was
really the centre of the raid this morning.
He had gone there at the Invitation of
Mr. Healy and after he had consulted
with Magistral Deuel, who yesterday
sfternoon announced In the West Side
Court he would Issue warrant for the
srrest of policemen who roughly handled
diners at Heaty's and would charge them
with oppression and with assault and
Mr. Whitman was plainly shocked by
the scene in the restaurant. In answer to
appeals that were made to him by men
who were being carried or dragged from
the restaurant he announced that they
could have warrants for the police to
day. While Mr. Whitman himself would
make no criticism of what he saw his
Impressions were plainly discernible by
the expression of his face Thomas
Healy, proprietor of the restaurant, I the
authority for the statement that Mr
Whitman would be In court to-day to help
in the prosecution of the police for their
treatment of guests at the restaurant
and for their raid on the place.
The District Attorney "arrived at the
retaurant shortly before 1 o'clock, ac
romp.inled by Richard Harding Davis.
He ivn In time to hear a policeman an-
r.uunce that all diners must be out by
o'clock is the doors would be closed at

cheering, as he posed for various flosh
I'SM.i in the dining room. He saw out
ride Inspector Dwyer and his twenty-five
policemen ready to carry out Mayor
Cavnor's 1 o'clock closing order.
At i;:G. by the District Attorney'

As a strapping man hustled by three

"How about this, Mr. District Attorney?
tan we get a warrant now?"
"Vou'il get your warrants all right," the
District Attorney replied, but the man
.arcely heard him, for by that time he
as on the sidewalk.
Then Mr. Healy, excited, rushed to
th' District Attorney and asked:
"Do you see this outrageous treatment?
Come closer to the door and see how
my rulrons are being handled."
Mr. Whitman moved toward the door
cops everywhere were buy roughly
handling the diner and he ald to Mr.
"Are you getting the number of the

"We arc," replied Mr. .Healy.
In the next Instant there was a crash

Philadblpiiia, Aug. 11. It became
known to-day that John Raymond Auch,
the eighteen-year-old eon of John F.
Auch, vlce-preldent of the Philadelphia
Reading Railway, eloped last week
with Miss Edith West, a trained nurse
several year hi enlor.
The elopement wa the termination of
a seaside courtship. The couple became
Acquainted four week ago at Stone Har
bor, N. J. The marriage took place last
Friday In the "Little Church Around the
Corner." In New Ybrk, with the Rer. Dr.
Upjohn officiating.
Young Auch came to Philadelphia to
day and went to the home of a cousin,
where he told hi trouble and declared
that he would be willing to tear up the
marriage certificate and call off the mar
riage. He discussed the whole affair
sadly and admitted that he did not know
what to do. The bride, who had been
left at Btone Harbor, seemed very happy
when interviewed. She said that h
and her husband probably would make
their home In Baltimore.
If there la any chance to Institute an
nulment proceedlnga It la believed that
Auch's parents will grasp the opportunity.
His mother is particularly strong in her
denunciation of tho minister who per
formed the ceremony.
Young Auch says he was able to obtain
the license by representing himself to bo
of age.

Jarmulowsky, who was In the banking
business on the East Side for forty years
and who dledi on July 1, 1912, shows
that he left property worth I501.0C3. The
most Interesting feature of the appraisal
Is ,au agreement entered Into by Jar
mulowsky and his wife, Rebecca, In 1899
by which he gave her half the business
to compensate her for her services as
constant adviser and assistant for many
years. Under the terms of her husband's

sonal property among his five children
and his wife. The children are Meyer,
Albert and Louis Jarmulowsky, sons, and
Mrs. Amelia Clark and Mrs. Blume El

two sons, Albert and Meyer, when the
business I to be wound up and distrib
uted. The residuary estate Is appraised
at 1231. 551.
He had $137,771 In his bank, of which
$100,000 was In special account and
$57,771 In a general account. The $100,
000 was a special fund set aside by Mr,
Jarmulowsky for- the protection of his
depositors in case the business should
be wound up nnd was not to be used for
any other purpose. In his will he di
rected his executors to set aside a similar
sum to protect the depositors.
The appraisal showed , that the total
assets of the bank at the time of Mr.
Jarmulowsky' death were J3..'S3,6!8, of
which the largest item, $l,;:s.!3C. was
in mortgages. The bank had rash of
$498,304. The profits of the business for
three years were $103,340, or an average
of $34,44R a year. Albert Jarmulowsky

Him by Backers Next
Friends Think 15,000 Names to
Petition Will Make
Mayor Accept.
Mayor Oaynor I expected to stand up
on Monday and ay thnt he will take
an Independent nomination for Mayor.
Men from the various Claynor leagues
havo planned to call upon him, put tho
question to him frankly and go away
with their answer. They had no doubt
yesterday but thnt he will say yes.
Thus far, the Mayor lias made no pub
11c avowal of candidacy. In a long state
ment made six weeks ago ho said he
didn't expect a nomination from any
political party and that his fortunes
seemed to rest with the Independent
Soon after the statement appeared R.
Rosa Appleton, president of the Four
teenth Street Bank, started the Gaynor
Fusion and Nominating League, which
later camo out with a large membership
nnd with Influential backing. The Mayor
hud nothing to say about the operations
of .the league, but Mr. Appleton and his
associate went to work and havo many
thousand signatures to an Independent
nomination petition.
Tho Mayor's candidacy showed great
strength from the beginning, but thu of
fleers of the league felt that they were
handicapped by the Mayor's non-committal
One of the earlier plans was to have
the format announcement como to-day.
Hut they decided that It was better to
wait until they had 16.000 signatures.
That number would serve as a convincing
proof to Mr. Oaynor that there was a
strong public demand for his candidacy.
John D. Crlmmtns called on the Mayor
yesterday. When he left the City Hall
he had no comments to make on the pro
gramme for next Monday. Neither did Mr.
Oaynor Bay anything about the plans of
his friends.
Indorsed by Brooklyn I.rasar.
Mr. Oaynor wa visited yesterdny by
representative of the Cltlxens League of
Brooklyn, which passed a resolution In-
oorsing nt candidacy at a meeting on
Tuesday night In Williamsburg. His
vialtor Included Henry Wetomann. presi
dent of the league ; Nathaniel Levi. John
F. Becker, William J. Haviland, Jr., Otto
Winner, Frank Obernler, Edward
Domschke, William H. Allen. William
Llbermann, Joseph llarondess, Fred H.
Itritmann and Harry Fisher,
Mr. Welsmann told the Mayor that he
had been nominated at the meeting In
Arlon Hall, Williamsburg, nnd that the
people needed him for four years more in
the Mayor's office.
"No Mayor before you lias understood
so fully the feeling, the spirit, and the
wants of the vast multitude of your fel
low townsmen, and none has ever been
willing und brave enough In both word
und deed to aid those to whom hut one
day In the week Is given for recreation,"
said Mr. Welsmann.
The Mayor thanked the visitor, but
made no promise. Hy next Monday,
however, the leagues will be able to show
him convincingly that his Independent
nomination can be achieved.
. Foreigners Favor Oaynor.
The Oaynor league of Foreign Horn
Citizens, one of the East Hide organisa
tions that have come out for his tenoml
nation, held a mass meeting lust night In
National Hull, Chrystle and East Hous
ton streets, and put up the first Oaynor
banner In town. The leaxue already has
2.100 members. They packed the hail and
listened to Oaynor speeches with great en
thusiasm. The speakers Included Joseph U.iron-
dess, chairman of the league and u mem
ber of the Board of Education; Isldor
Mlegeltuch. Rudolph Buskin, Ellas B
itosenthal. Joseph Edelstelu, Dr. Mux
Oirsdansky, u Socialist, and Louis Miller,
editor of an East Side paper.
They said that the Mayor's work had
been felt especially on the East Side. They
commended him for the relief he hud
given them from police tyranny.
The session on Monday will take place
nv days before the Tammany city com
mlttee meets to designate n rnnritilnte for
Mayor. Mr. Oaynor's backers hope that
the showing that they will be able to make
on that day will be convincing to the Tam
many date makers. Yet the assurance
came again from Tammany Hall yester
day that Chaoses F. Murphy and his ad
visers have no expectation that the Mayor
will be the choice of Tammany.

Sulzer's Lawyer Describes the Line
of Action Determined by the Defence
This statement from ei-Judgo D-Cady Herriok of Albany, of Gov.
Sulzer'a counael, waa the on)y formal revelation of the Governor's in
tentions which appeared yesterday:
Counael for Gov. Sulier havo no deslro to bo interviewed or to try
the merit of his case in the newspapers, and have no desire to make
any statement in his behalf, and havo advised tho Govornor to refrain
from making any statement at the present time, likowise his wife.
We havo engaged in his defence- not for William Sulser, but as a pro
fessional and publio duty for tho Governor of tho State, and to preserve,
so far as It can now be preserved, tho good name and fame of the State.
After an examination of Mr. Sulzer in relation to the transactions
disclosed by the Frawloy committee we are satisfied that there has been
only a partial revelation of the facta so far, and we are satisfied that he
has been guilty of no wilful wrongdoing, and wo will ask of the publio
in kis behalf a suspension of judgment until all the facts can be dis
closed before the proper tribunal and in an orderly way.
The statements in the papers that the Governor will if necessary re
sort to force to maintain his position aro tho merest rot. He will meet
the charges made against him in an orderly and dignified way and will
do nothing unbecoming the dignity of tho State and will engage in no
physical scramble to assert his rights to discharge the functions per
taining to the office of Governor.
Sulzer Is Determined to Con
tinue Exercising Functions
as Governor.
Glynn May Act as Governor
- in His Own Office
in Capitol.
ALBANY, Aug. II. William Puller. Im
peached by the Assembly at S:1S o'clock
this morning, when the windows of the
Capitol were reflecting the sun. of a new
day, theoretically ceased to be Oovernor
at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon when the
articles that constitute his Indictment
were accepted by tbe Senate and his trial
wa set for September II.
Actually the Governor's dispossession
will not take place until to-morrow morn
ing. Deferring to the opinion of some of
their advisers that the act of Impeachment
Is not complete until the summons and
complaint are served on the accused the
manager of this unprecedented under
taking are allowing Mr. Sulser to con
tinue as Oovernor until Patrick K. Mc-
Cabr. clerk of the Senate, tries to hand
him the paper at 11 o'clock In the
morning. From that moment the acting
Governor of New York will be Lteiit.-Oov.
Martin II. Glynn.
The phase "tries to hand him the
paperx" Is used because Sir. Sulror may
refune to accept them or even to see Mr.
McCabe. For the Impeached Governor In
tends to fight not only for the establish
ment of his Innocence but to press hy
every, means he and his lawyers can think
of his contention that his impeachment U
unconstitutional and that therefore he
cannot be repluced by Mr. Glynn.

The Oovernor also told the lawyers
with great emphasis that Mrs. Sulzer
must not he allowed to go on 'the stand
at the trial or In any other way figure
further In the case. He Insisted that the
fight be nude on legal and constltiition.il
grounds alone.
It was made clear from reports of to
night's conference that, th Governor's
Inclination to begin his contest by re
fusing to accept service of the articles of
Impeachment was not as strong as It had
Ills friends said at midnight that Pat
rick K. McCube would be cordially
greeted when he called, with the papers
at II o'clock to-morrow morning. Ap
parently Mr. Sulzer's advisers have con
vinced him that he should rely on setting
aside his impeachment In the courts or
proving his Innocence If the case comes to

Impeachment. Mrs. Sulzer was gradu
nted from the Illinois Training School for
Nurses in the class of 1S93. She was
then MIsh Clara B. Podelhelm and her
home was In Philadelphia,
".Mis. Sulzer was my closest friend In
the Kchool," declared Mrs. Kmma Koch,
ruiierliiteiideiit of the Chicago Lying-in
Hospital to-day. "Slie was odh of tli-lliu-st
women I have ever known. The
moment tli.it 1 read of her confession
I Knew wliut had happened. She wus
using that money to surprise her hus
band. I bellevrt every word she has
eulil. When she was a girl she hud such
u touchy conscience that every one
noticed It.
"if she says she took that money and
used It that way she should be believed
Implicitly. She Is greatly In love with
her husband and she would do anything
In tin? world to help a person In any sort
of trouble, but die would not 'lie even
to save him.
Other classmates of Mrs. Sulzer spoke
in similar vein.
White lloosr Denies That He A
vised Hulsrr.
YAfHiNOTo.v, Aug. 13. Authoritative
denial was made to-night of a published
report that President Wilson had wired to
Oov. Suiter urging him not to make any
technical defence but to present his best
case nt a regulur trial. It was said at
th White House that the President had
not communicated with Gov. Sulzer on
this subject.
Developments at Albany are being fol
lowed with Intense Interest by Democrats
In the Senate. Oov. Sulzer's old friends
In the House have been hoping, against
the evidence, that he filially would be able
to explain away the money transactions,
but now tho sentiment seems In be one of
Lawyers In the House to-day expressed
the opinion that Gov. Sulzer cannot be
Impeached for porsoual acts committed
before he became Governor.
"Tho Governor's privileges are based
on the Constitution," said Kepresentative
Flood of Virginia. "The Legislature can
not add to or subtract uny qualifications
upon which impeachment proceedings can
be brought."
Representative Francis Burton Har
rison of New York also Is of the opinion
that It Is doubtful that Impeachment can
lie for nets committed before Suiter took
the oath.
Representative Montague, former Gov
ernor of Virginia, aald:
"Ah a general proposition impeachment
cannot lie upon acta which are committed
prior to Induction Into office and which
are personal and not relating to tbe
representative Henry of Texas, chair
man of the House Rules Committee, said
that the jurisdiction of the Legislature to
Impeach for acta Committed prior to the
Oovernor' Inauguration wa In hi
opinion very doubtful.

proceedings for final determination. If

Mlencr Fills the Chamber Durlnii
tbe Proceedings.
Ai uanv, Auk. 13. In the most solemn
and Impressive proceeding ever held In
the Hen.ttt) Chamber of New York since
the origin of the Statu government In
1777, a committee of the Assembly of tho
State appeared to-day before the Senate
und announced its impeachment of Oov.
William Sulzer. The appearance of the
board of managers of the Assembly snd
the leading of the eight articles of im
peachment followed quickly.
It was a silent throng which filled the
galleries and pressed behind the railing
tt the rear of the chamber to see and
to hear. A bust of conversation, which
started in the chamber when Senator
Robert F. Wagner, president pro tern..
opened the session, was silenced by the
warning that there must be order. From
that moment to the last, when the body
adjourned hy Joint resolution until next
Tuesday, one could almost hsve heard a
pin drop.
Down In the Executive Chamber Gov.
Suiter, worn and strained by the occur
rences of the lust few weeks, sat mapping
out hit light against the Legislature In
Its attempt to remove him from otricc.
Miles away from Albany Lleut-Gov.

He came to the city only late In the day.
A DISTerrat Wsgnrr,
It was even a different Wagner that
took the chair of the presiding officer.
The Wagner majority leader and fighter
for Tammany Hall was gone. Instead
there was the Wagner who Is now Lieu
tenant -Oovernor of the State, a Wagner
that as an officer of the 8tate muxt turn
over bis leadership for the remainder of
the term to another. There was not a.
Senator who did not realize the gravity
of the situation.
The Senate and Assembly were to have
met at 1 1 o'clock this morning, but It wa
3 o'clock before either house was called
to order. No sooner had Mr. Wanner
called the Senate to order than a com
mittee appeared at the doors nf n
