knowledge that his two sons must
pay the penalty for the crime once

of the law for the state insurance

ployers operating under the state law

MRS. SULZER'S NAME DRAGGED
INTO HUSBAND'S TRIAL
Albany, N. Y., Oct. 1. Melville B.
Fuller, . stodk broker through whom
Gov. William Sulzer is reported to
have transacted his stock deals,
brought Mrs. Sulzer's name into the
impeachment trial for the first time
when he stated that Sulzer had ex
plained a loan he was asking by say
ing it was necessary in order to aid
Mrs. Sulzer in some 'financial trou
ble. The prosecution resumed its efforts
to prove the charge-that the gover
nor used patronage to seal the lips
of witnesses, and the biggest case in
point is that of Louis Safecky. They
claim that Sarecky was promised a
$4,000 jpb as deportation agent of the
state hospital commission in return
for refusal to testify before the Fraw
ley investigating committee.
If the prosecution completes its
case today, there is a possibility that
a recess will be taken until either
Saturday or Monday. The public ex
cuse will be the Jewish New Year,
which begins tomorrow.

SUNDAY SCHOOL RECORD MAY
SAVE YOUNG BOY
New York, Oct. 1. Wilbur Foer
ster, the boy who was charged with
embezzling $1,515 from William Tay
lor Sons & Company of Cleveland to
pay his way through Oxford College,
will not be prosecuted. It is claimed
that Mrs. J. Livingston Taylor, owner
of tie business, decided to be lenient
with the -boy because he had a good
Sunday school record.
It has been reported that the com
pany would see that the boy was
given the education he craved so
greatly, but this evidently is not the
intention of Taylor & Co. Wilbur was
dismissed and will be taken home
by his father. A representative of'
the Taylor firm said he had instruc
tions to provide -any money needed
by the boy and his father for the re- .
turn trip to Cleveland.
