"I have conducted lanumersble ecclesi? astical trials." he sail, "over small mat-! teis, many of them, it ii true, but I S] SSk of the method. In those trials w? fol lOSfSi the eii?*toin of inviting those per- | sons who knew the truth of a matter be- | fore our court and just basing them toll that truth. "There are four people who know ' truth of the matters concerned in this trial The? re Si reeky. Morgan. Oov? ernor and Mrs p:!zer Bsrsek*" we hiv? heard from.

It was Silliest Hi to the Senator that the , Qevi mot t i Un i ouW have ? taken the witness Stand had they deebl ? to do ?... "Well, they should have been invited to do so," he commented. Senator Palmer was asked whether the storv he had heard in co?irt was at va? riance In anv way with what he had rea? son to believe was the truth of the case. "No," he said. "I should say that there have not been any contradictions, but the story we have heard In eourt is not the whole of the truth In the matter, and that is what we ought to pet. "Remember that I have not said that I have made up my mind about this. As j I understand my duty. It is to consider only what I heard from the witness , . stand. After that I will listen to what the Judges may instruct or ad'.lse us as to the law, and then I will make my de? cision, and not until then." It was suggested to the Senator that the only possible Inference to be drawn from his ronssfhs was that the story he had been told on the night of August 12 ? by the Governor and Mrs. Sulzer would go far toward explaining much of th- ac? cusatory matter now standing undented : against the Governor. "Well. I want to explain to you that I ? have no patience with this idea that Mrs Puiser should not be railed upon to take the stand," he said. "Mrs Sulzer Is a i very capable woman, abundantly able to take c-are of herself on the witness t-tand. Sad th? stor> she might tell would assist the court in determining the truth. "I have never told any one what I heard ? en August 12, and that story should be ! made publie. When I saw Senator 1'raw ley that night I asked him whether If I ' would tell btaB ?-ome things I had learned he would try to delay and hold up the im- ' peachnvnt. at least, until he had investi gated the sto-y I could tell him. He said j he knew everything that I knew, and M I let the matter drop, but I think the , story should be told, and for that purpose Governor and Mrs Sulzer should be In? vited to take the stand " Senator T'almer said he would suggest such a ourse when the court came to the p?">lnt of deliberating on and considering ths cast when the arguments are finished.

Mr. Parker answered him by quoting Samuel J Tilden ;is saving that under the constitution and laws of this stav an Officer ?waa imieachable for acts committed before taking offVe or acts wholly dteeonateted with hit- oAce, such as UM comntlaelon Of a crime for which th- official had been convi? ted.

'.f th?.-??. trinee articles," argued Parker, .referring to the falae sCitement, per? I Jury and theft article.??. He contended that the evidence pre? sented by th?- Assembly Board of Im I pea-"hment Managers s ata?ed them and they were not contradicted by Um ' respondent. The testimony, he went on, showed that th<- Governor must have known the campaign statement waB false, because it did not contain items of checks and cash delivered to him personally. The testimony showed that, notwithstanding Sarecky's at? tempted glossing over of the aets as purely formal, the Governor swore to and signed the affidavit annexed to the false statement, thus constituting him? self i perjurer. And, finally, he was guilty of theft, because h<- converted to his use mon? y obtained as campaign contributions, larceny being the ob? taining of money under false pretences and ellence as to the uses to which he intended to put the money being a false pretence. Two Differing Personalities. Parker's manner in making his ad? dress was strikingly different from that of his adversary. Marshall, with a prepared address of about 35.? ?00 words, declaimed the more human and personal parts like the finished orator that he is. He held the attention of the members of the court closely, es? pecially during his passionate appeal to the court not to convict the Gov? ernor "on the groiifid of moral turpi? tude ?r on general principles." Parker read his argument in a low, monoto? nous voice. It was the kind of an ar? gument he would have presented to the Court of Appeals, delivered in ex? actly the same manner. No anewer bad been made by the ce fence, Parker said, to any of the ma? terial facts brought out by the prose? cution Be traced the growth of the statutes governing the use of money at elections down to the. awakening of publij sentiment following the insur? ants investigation, showing the de? bauchery of political life by corpora? tion funds. Then Charles E. Hughes drafted a law, the purpose of wbfcfl was to prevent any contribution oeing made to a candidate for political office and any expenditure of money wlth?*,*t such publicity as would make the peo? ple of the state fully aware of Ihe financial connections and transactions of the candidate. He analyzed the provisions of the (election and penal (awe. alleging that a ?candidate must mak?- .1 State* 'setting forth all his campaign re ?

IteeUmony, picturing Bereeky ae un* worthy of belief bacanes <.f hie . to the Mutual Alliance Trost ? to which be rigned Butoert num??. There has been ? (reel attempt to ?create an atmopphere thai William Sulzer is a man who It absolutely blank so far as douai and < '.' concerned," said Parkir, "but ?t must been borne in on your honors that he is very thrifty. Indeed, and bee quite 1 knowledge of business affairs " Then he portrayed Bulser going to .1 . ob H. Schill for a campaign <-on itribuUon and protesting that it w is I not larger, and demanding from Allan a. Ryan that he ?-.?t 17.000 or m?*re, |and telling him to tell his father, "I'm th? same old Bill." Parker Draws in Inference. "Was it net Implied that he had been serviceable te him. <ir friendly on other oc?*aslons and would be again'."' queried Pel ker if a 1 andldate applied for s campaign contribution end t..?-.k the money it did not let him out of the law* penalti..- for somebody later t.. sa?, that th? monej was intended for him to do what he lilted with. Parker contended. And even if fculzer, the candidate, did not specifically ask for campaign '-ontrlbutions. he was making a campaign, be t..?.k th.- money m s candi? date and people COUld onlv mean th. t they ga?e the money to him to further his election, even though they gave it knowing that h?* was p?...r and might luv.? heavy personal espeneea In this connection failure of the can didate t.. say be Intended to devote th? money to purely personal uses brought furh diversion of funds directly within the statutory definition of larceny. "Men who d-sired to have their party win. who desired to help th?lr friend," said Parker, "men who had been accustomed, perhaps, to assist in the giving of mon?;}' In early days, gave It not that he might put it In his pocket, not that he might buy farms for his old age. not tnat it might be laid away against that later 1 day when he could not earn money, but for the purpose of helping him toward meeting that burden which nearly every candidate finds riuite hCUVJ " Louis Marshall in nLs argument for the Governor took up all of the morning ses? sion and a little more than an hour of the afternoon. He lead so rapidly that at one or two points he was requested by Senators to go more slowly that . ey might be able to follow him carefully. While, he centred his attack chiefly upon Articles I. 11 and VI, he also addresse-l himself briefly to earh of the other charge?. Court Making History. ?On the three eampalirn fund articles his argument was in nubstan"e an amplulca tlon of those of I?. Cady Herrick and Irving G. Vann. of the Sulrer coiinvi, when these two lawyers presented the contentions of the defence challenging their lmpeachablllty. "We are on the threshold of an 'v?-,nt which will make a permanent Impression upon the history of our beloved state. ' I said Marshall, "which will entail ?;onse j ?,uences far beyond our ken. which will determine whether or not the r*tgn of ?aw has ceased and that of passion and ijr^Ju diee has begun." 8ulser. he said, was on trial, not be? cause, while an incumbent of office, he had been guilty of of?Vial corruption < r because he had done aught to injure the public weal, but because of the charges rth In M..- nr?l.rise of lmr?ea? hin "Th.- only i?f? i?? ?!-;11.-f whl?-Ii I im.?.. rtgbi ? i Un re* r"n?i?-r. ? ? ?... .- - St I??' m ti.. . - ..i impesi bmenl wi.i were terrea Upon ! un." said tb I I that the Courl ni.-nt n ist be pun ripped ol sny It th I itloe | ? bl nglng t>> the Benate memb? ? ? ? .. h ?.?, ?Mild .'" ?titin ud i : urn "Motrt ? ? r. th. histor. of impe.ichmci It i inmlstskshf) sl tes there I?

Perjury, he argued, could be cbarfsd only upon an oath required by law and upon an oath whleh must be knowingly, wilfully and corruptly false. Th? art!? le Cbarclna larceny, he went on, should be dismissed l.tsause the givers of money consented t?> the taking of the money by Bul? i without limitations Marshall cited the impfounloMty of American politicians who have attained to high office, mentioning the cunen of Daniel Webster and William McKinley, In his discussion Of the charges relating to the Influencing of witnesses. Marshall contended that the appearance of M'-lvlll? H. Kulbr OB the witness stand v..is an SnSWSr to that ehargS IS BO far as it re? lated to the broker, and he then dilated at length upon the accusation of "doc I toring" bOSfcS made by Istdor Kresel j against Fuller, for which Kreeel later j was forced to apologize in behalf of the managers. Frederick L. Colwell's absence from the witness stund, said Marshall, could not be imputed to Suljer on the evidence prep.-i.ted, and the fact that Louis A. Sareeky appeared and testified absolved Sulzer from that charge with re.-pect to him. Coming down then to Duncan W. Peck s testimony that Sulzer told him to "forg'-t It" with respect to a $5?? con? tribution, he advanced the argument that Peck had a motive for "inventing the story" because of the Investigation of thu I Department of Highways by John A_ Hennessy, th? ?GovCTTwr's special inves? tigator. Henry Morgenthau's testimony that Sut? ler telephoned asking him to "be easy" en him Marshall dismissed with the remark that such a request "was but natural," and as to the evidence of Allan A. Ryan, that Sulzer ha?l asked him to Intercede with Murphy and Harnes, ho said "that evidence was Injected Into the case for the purpose of creating dhttrust of the Governor and of reflecting upon his honor." Marshall contended that the ?Governor's famous remark to Assemblytr-an Prime, "You for me and I for you." was a "casual remark, to which there could not be any malign significance attached, and which was merely harmless ?conversa? tion." In endino Marshall emphasised the point that the Governors lawyers "were not so much concerned In this case with William fulzer the man or the Gov? ernor rtl with the supremacy of the. Law." "Let the law be the polar star which now, im in 'he past, points out the path .if safety," he said. ' T'pun your decision rests, not the future of William 8ulz??r. but the happiness of future generation? lhall OUTS be ? government of law?, or one of passion and ?aprlce^' "Mr Marshall's refer??nceg to me are sbeotutely unjust and Inexcusable." said Puncan W. Peck to-night. "Any man who says my testimony before the court was bleed on anv such motive as he givi-s is guilty of falsehood, and knows It is false when he ?ays It. If Marshall is correctly quoted. I denounce his state? ment II I lie, and as a Me told for pay Hi? statement was made as an attorney, not under o.ith, while my testimony was given as a witness un?ler oath " Harvey D.
