VERDICT EXPECTED IN FEW DAYS Counsel to Occupy To-day and To-morrow in Arguments and Then Comes Vote on Guilt or Innocence of Governor?Sarecky Sticks to Explanation ?Hennessy Graft Tale Barred. Both sides finished tal ing testimony before the High Court of Impeachment yesterday, and a verdict on the guilt or innocence of Governor Sulzer will be voted in a few days. Sulzer refused to go on the witness stand, as that would make the testimony of his wife necessary, his counsel said. Louis A. Sarecky's story that the blame for failure to report campaign contributions was all his was little shaken by John B. Stanchfield's cross-examination. John A. Hennessy's testimony for Sulzer about graft in state departments was barred by the court. Neither would the court permit George W. Egbert, a bank examiner in charge of the failed Carnegie Trust Company, to testify for the prosecution that Mrs. Sulzer never had an account in that institution, as alleged.

Governor's lawyers said that he decimed to go on the stand because he <j:d not wish to subject his wife to tne ordeal ol testifying for him and under? going a ?ross-examination like that of Louis A. Parecky, and if he testified ihe would have to testify also. The Governor had heard from friends ond associates in the political world, even so far as from Washington, who were distinctlv adverse to this, and so, re? luctant!;?, he decided to stay away from the trial. Sulzer Decides Not to Testify. This decision was reached at the final conference between the Governor and his counsel last night. This in? formation was given out with the au? thorisation of D. Cady Herrick, chief counsel to the Governor, after it had ksen intimated that Sulzer had been surprised at the abrupt closing of the case. ?ulxers long expected statement m answer I i th? specific charges made against him will be given out for pub? lication as soon as the verdict in the impeachr.-!*-m trial is returned. The statement has been written and is now waiting In the- office of his counsel, where it _ kept in a private safe. It is under.^- - d that it is the same state? ment, in substance, which Sulzer pre? pared foi Theodore Roosevelt to read at the Progressive state conference at Roches;?? reci ntly. but that Sulzer has gone over It sine? that first preparation and taken out some of the items least luseeptil.;.? eif proof. It la ?reported that this statement, which il about four thousand words long, will -.-t forth Sulzer's own story of what be believes is a gigantic politi? cal conspiracy against him, fathered by Tamrr.ar.. Hall, as his punishment for opposing Boss Murphy. News of the? clOSlnf of evidence in the bnpreschmsnt trial reached Sulzer whlle he wss sitting in the library of the Executive Mansion going over the final draft of his statement. The Governor ?eld to-night to his personal friends that he had the utm?>8t confidence that the result of the trial . would he favorable to him. His coun? sel were- pleased at his decision not to testify. Sulzer Eager to Testify. "When was this decision reached?" his chief counsel, D. Cady Herrick, ?rai asked. W- lawyers reached that decision long ago," he replied, grimly, "but th? Governor only very recently." The Governor ?lid not reach this de?

IN LETTER ?0 WILSON Port Collector as Leader of Fusion Cause Would Still Possible Criticism. John Purrov Mitchel, the fusion can? didate for Mayor, tendered his res? ignation as Collector of the Port of New York to President Wilson in a letter forwarded to Washington yes? terday. It is understood the Collector took that course in crder that the Pr?sident might, if he wished, relieve himself of any embarrassment due to criticism from any one because a federal office? holder was devoting his time to politi? cal mutters. As will be noted, the resignation is not a formal document, but a personal letter to the President, which the Pres? ident may use as a resignation If he sees fit. Collector MttChel points out i that the office is so well organized as I to make it Improbable that the gov? ernment's interests would suffer durlBI the month that remains of th?* cam? paign. However, he f?.-ls it a duty to offer his resignation to the President under the circumstances. If the President expresses a desire that Mr. Mitchel remain in office he will undoubtedly not press his resigna ? f.on. There was a fee-l.ng here last night that the President might take Just that attitude. So far as could be learned here last nlKhr the President had no one in n.ind for the place. A friend of Frank L Polk, who was mentioned for the post at the time it went to Mr. Mitchel, has told friends that und?r no circumstances would Mr. Polk take it now. Collector Mitchel's ietter, whi^h was made public at the Custom House last night, follows: "Ortober R. 1913 "The President. Washington.

"It is not a matter <>f whether other teachers are waiting on line for em? ployment?you have here the question of efficiency, and I need do no more than point to the record of eighteen years' service, of which Mrs. Peixotto may proudly boast."

"Within the last two weeks there have ?been two more such ?ases. Th?- ques? tion brings to enir attention the effe? t upon the pupil and the general conduct of the school.

It was then that "Hooks" Wiltse donned his Jaunty finger glove and went I to first. But more of him anon. Just now, for a moment, imagine Eddie Plank robbed ?,f Mclnnis. his regular first baseman, and Baker, his hardest hitter. Then the patched-up line-up began to do its worst for Matty. With here and there a flash of power, they booted, kicked and hurled the ball from pillar to post, but the master never quavered. They came up in a pinch with runs a-plenty quivering on the horizon and fell ignominiously. Still "Bis Six" stuck to the guns, his iron nerve unruffled and his matchless courage unbroken, until finally the time came for him to strike the blow and bring the first run of the game over the plate, with a clean, stout? hearted single to centre. Not only did he have to hold the enemy at bay, but he was also compelled to win his own game. Two stalwart figures loomed in t'.e breach by the side of the New Yo.*k i itcher?Larry McLean, the catcher imported from Cincinnati last summer, and George Wiltse, Matty's "roomy" of the road.
