NEW CHARGE AGAINST SULZER
Albany, N. Y., Oct. 7. The direct'
charge that Gov. William Sulzer ap
pealed to Republican influence to
prevent his impeachment was made
by Allan A. Ryan, son of Thomas F.
Ryan, the traction millionaire, and
although stricken out by the ruling
of Judge Cullen, electrified the im
peachment court and will have a po

of the case.
The Republican senators for
whose aid Ryan said Sulzer asked,
were greatly angered, and friends" of
the impeached governor made no ef
forts to conceal their fears that this
disclosure ends all hope of the gov

Ryan stated that Sulzer asked him
to go to Washington and see Senator
Root and have the latter get William
Barnes, Jr., to line up the Repub

legality of the impeachment.
The battle for admission into evi

stormy that the question was put to
a vote and resulted in 41 ayes and 14t
noes, indicating an overwhelming
sentiment against Gov. Sulzer.
Ryan then swore that Sulzer ap-.
pealed to ' him to have Delancey
Nichol see. Charles F. Murphy 'of
TammanyHall and persuade him to y
call off the impeachment trial.
Harvey D. Hinman, one of Sulzer's
lawyers, made a long speech in open

clared that the "morals of a public
man have no bearing" on his quali
fication to hold office," and said that
if they had the country would have
been deprived of the services of some
of its greatest men. He insisted that
nothing criminal had been proven
against Gov. Sulzer since he assumed
