BROKER SAYS SULZER
PAID MONEY HIMSELF
Testified Firm Had No Deal with Clor,
New York, September 12.?Bulzer's
tanuactlons la Wall street from June
27, 1910, till they ceased?at least so
far oa one 11 rm of brokers was con
cerned?on July 14 last, wore describ
ed under oath today by Melville D.
Puller, who said ho was Sulzor's brok
er, In a hearing hold by tho nine Im
peachment managers appointed by the
Puller, who refused to testify before
tho Frawley Investigating committee
concerning certain matters, today an
swered all Questions, lie testified that
Sulzor had paid him $16,000 In person
Within a month and a day after the
last election and that ho (Fuller) had
had no dealings with Mrs. Sulzor.
According to Fuller's testimony Sul
zor, while a Congressman, opened an
account with his firm, Harris & Fuller,
Juno 27, 1910. In September, he testi
fied, Sulzor borrowed $23,000 front the
firm, giving as collateral 400 shares of
"Big Four" Railroad stock and in No
vember of the same year Sulzer added
some Aemrlcan Smelter .'jtock to his
collateral held by tho brokers.
"'Big Four' declined from 80 to 77
within a year," Fuller continued, "but
Mr. Sulzer bought some more of the
stock and added Southern Pacllc to his
"On November 13, 1912, a few days
after ho was elected Governor," Ful
ler continued, "Sulzer walkod Into the
ofllco of Harris & Puller with ten ten
thousand dollar bills in his (hand.
Thccsn he paid on his account, his In
debtedness, owing to other transac
tions having increased to $50,012."
On December G, Fuller said, Govern
or-elect Sulzer -paid In person $0,000
more in cash on his account.
On June 16, this year Sulzer's debt
to tho brokers had been further re
duced. One of the checks, Mr. Fulelr
said, was from A. E. Sprlggs, a former
Governor of Montana.
Dleut. Com. Josephthal, of Governor
Sulzor's staff, visited tho office of
Harris & Fullor July 16 last, Fuller
added, and closed the account by pay
ing the balance, $20,739.
Josephtlr.il received the stock left by
Sulzer as collateral. Josephthal pre
sented an order, which wan produced
today. It was signed "William Sul
zer for Mrs. Sulzer."
Mr. Fuller could give no explanation
of tho words "for Mrs. Sulzer", he
said, as neither he nor his firm had
ever had any dealings with her.

TILLMAN NOT BACKING SIMS.
Withdraws Support from Orangeburg
Man for Marshal.
Washington, September 12.?Senator
Tillman has notified the department
of Justice that his official endorsement
of J. L. Sims of Orangeburg, as a can
didate to succeed J. Duncan Adams as
United States marshal for South Caro
lina has been withdrawn. This infor
mation was given by the senior sena
tor this evening in response to a ques
tlontion from The News-and Courier's
correspondent who has observed the
activity of friends of Ex-Sheriff Bu
ford, of Newberry county, and asked
Senator Tillman if there was any pos
sibility of fois withdrawing the Sims
endorsement. In explanation of bis
course, Senator Tillman remarked that
somo people had been saying that
ho was trying to hog both offices, that
Is the district attorneyshlp and the
marshal ship, and he felt constrained
to take this action to clarify the situ
Senator Smith, who had not actually
endorsed Mr. Sims but had agreed to
acqulosco in his nomination, was
promptly asked what position be
would tako with regard to the mar
shalshlp In vlow of Senator Tlllmnn's
latest move. The junior Senator re
plied that 'ho 'had nothing whatever
to say for publication.
The indications are that Senator
Tillman is concentrating all his forces
behind tho Thurmond candidacy for
district attorney, recognizing the fact
that during the past few days Woston
has gained ground 'heavily. Whether
the last move of the senior Senator
'will result in an understanding be- \
tween him and his colleague or only j
deepen the clearvago between them i
remains to be seen.
