A thumbnail sketch of Congressman
Snlzer's life would contain these dates
and facts:
Horn in KlizaN'th. N. .1 . March is. B9,
his mother of Scotch-Irish and Dutch
nmestry and his father of German Mock
He was the sicond son of a family of seven
children His father win a fanner nnd the
son worked on tho farm until he was HI
then worked in n law office and
studied at Columbia law school. At
21 he was admitted to tho New York
Imr StutnHd for the Democratic party
and live years after h became a lawyer
he was sent to the Assembly.
In ISM he became Sjieaker of the Assem
bly and thejfollowinc yeur waa leader of
the Democratic minority It was during
these years lie gained tho sobriquet of
"The Hoy Orator." Since, 1R91 he has gone
to Congress from the Tenth district of
New York
Congiensman Sulzer, "Billy" to most of
his friends, ha also lieen called "H. Clay
Sulz.er." because of a resemblance, fancied
or real, to Henry Clay. The Congressman
is well over six feet tall and of a fair
weight. This is how ono writer descrilies
"Sulzer i not n classically beautiful
man because his features are broken up
into these- rugged juts of force, thoe
rbnipt bubbles of intensity, which tend
to ssil the smooth, even, waxen sym
metry known as 'regular features ' Sulz.er
is decidedly a good looking individual
He is a man you'd believe and trust from
the jump "
The Congressman is topped bv a crop
of sandy hair on tho right side, front of
which is one huge lock which just won't
behave. It is always falling over his
right )( and when Congressman Sulzer
is delivering vehemently a speech in
whfch he is Interested that lock bobs
forth and back, across his face, up and
down, and around in u circle.
It was his ability to talk ubly for the
things he advocated that won him his
first nomination to the Assembly, At
that time he was a young lawyer, without
any powerful friends. He took the stump
for the National Democratio Committee
in the Cleveland cnmiwugn in ItiHI, just
after he had been admitted to tho bar,
and kept siwaking away until the county
leaders recognized bin forco and his
following five years later
His name has beon urged for tho Demo
cratic nomination for Governor every
two years since 1906. That year a Sulz.cr
campaign committee opened head
(Piarters. but tlie nomination was with
held, as it was in 1!KW and lOtn, Mean
while he has been working away in Wash
ington doing his best for measures he
was for, and his best against measures
he was against Ho ha, been prolific oa a
statute maker
lie increased the nay of letter carriors,
made Lincoln's birthday a legul holiday,

raising of the Maine, once introduced u

wasnlmost an elopement He disappeared
from Washington and several days later
was found in Atlantlo City with u bride,
who was Miss Clara Rodelhoim of Now
Mr Sulzer lias devoted so much of his
time lo tlie ofllces 1m lias held that lie
has not been uhlo to pay much attention
to his luw practice and he Is reputed to
lie n poor man.
As nn orator Congressman Sulzor Is

Its session this afternoon was enlivened
by a personal assault on Charles t
Murphy from the Hps of Thomas Molt
Osborne and the genial, sal castle, pen?-'
tratlng humor of Senator Hobert r.
Wnirner in bis renlv to Mr. Osborne.
At this session of the convention It wns I
nlso demonstrated that the strength of'
the regular Democrats was 41" votes I
and the strength of the anti-Murphy
men was 3.. votes, three deleaates ab
sent or not voting.
The minority, however, made n gal
lant tight, headed by Mr. Osborne and
Frank 11. Mod of Jamestown. It wv I
Ineffective against such overwhelming
odds, but this minority was spunky
none the less. During the attack of
Mr. Osbotne on Mr. Murphy there were
unpleasant scenes on the pint of dele
gates, some of whom demanded Mr.
Osborne's e.spulslcn on the ground that
ho was not a Democrot. while others
constantly Interrupted him by hls."S
and cries of "Put lilm out!"
Permanent Chairman Parker de
manded silence. Insisting that free
speech wns a cardinal principle of De
mocracy, but when the Interruptions
continued he finally tired this shot nt
the boisterous ones: "You will be good
enough to try to conduct yourselves n
gentlemen at least " After that there
was (pilet.
When Charles T Murphv. nccom
panled by Alton P.. Parker, entered the
convention this afternoon they were
very generously applauded. Temporary
Chairman Glynn started the proceed
ings promptly. Chairman John D. SW
Million of Home, of the' committee on
permanent organization, reported that
the committee had selected ex-Judge
Parker us permanent chairman. This)
was the signal for tho first demonstrn
tlon of opposition on tho part of tho i
minority. It was led by Mr. Mott. who
as a member of the committee on per
ment organization submitted n minor
ity report and said:
"I yield to no mun in this Stale In my
adoration for the distinguished citizen
and Jurist "ho has been named fm per
manent chairman by the majority of our
committee. Hut this I a Democratic con
vention and it ought to represent die pro
gressive sentiment of die entire State of
New Vork. This is not a local matter,
State matter. It is a national matter 1
claim that the majority has selected a
reactionary for permanent chairman. He
most conspicuously identified with re
actionary policies, In aying that I do not
ipiote my own words, 1 uuote the words of
the greatest statesman of the republic
Wll lam Jennings llryan anil I am sun-
stantlated in my statement by Wood row
Wilson, who In confirming Hryan's objec
tions to Judge Parker at naltlmoro said
'Vou aro quite right.' I am glad to speak
in an open convention. I have been trying
for fifteen years to get into one. I now take
die opportunity to present the name of
the intrepid and brilliant Mayor of Pottgh
keepsle, John K. Sugue, for permanent
chairman "
On the roll call when Dutchess county
was reached Mayor Sague advanced to
the front of the hull nnd said:
I did myself tho honor to vote for the dis
tinguished Judge when he was a candidate
for President and I have never regretted
that action, but there Is no nuestlon of per
sonality In this matter at all This is said
to be and I believe it is going to be an open
Democratio convention
If I believed that theie am inn men In
this convention to-day who really favor
Judge Parker for chairman I would say
no mole, but I don't believe it lie does
lint stand for those progressive Ideas that
we have got to have in this nation to-day.
Over the Saratoga convention wns the
shadow- of I'.llliu Koot, counsel to the many
trusts nnd corporations, and If wo name
Mr. Parker to preside over us we will hear
ftoui the, people of this State the remurk,
"What a distinction, what a dlnerenee."
Now there ore two great men in this
nation to-day who stand for thn Demo

Wilson ami the other Is William J. Hryan.

men vveie opposed to Judge llaikerat Haiti
nioie. I tell you, gentlemen, that tlie Wll
son Democracy lu this country Is its virility
and life It doesn't waver, but II stands
up, and that Is why, Mr Chairman, I am
compelled at this time, much against uiv
personal Inclination, to utst my vote aye.
Ill other words, Mayor Sague voted for
When Nassau county was reached

many years In the last ten years Judge
Parker has been either temiiorary or per
manent chairman of these conventions,
and I wan'ed to ask Mr. Murphy If them Is
nn other man In the Democratic party In
the Slate that lie can trust to be chairman
of a convention t linn Judge Parker.
There were smiles at this, followed bv
cheers for Mr Murphy. When New York
county was reached Judge Parker, sitting
beside Mr Murphy, declined to vote for
himself. When Oneida was re-ached on
the roll call John D McMalion, chairman
of the committee on resolutions, replied
to Mr. Mott and said that tho commute
had selected New York's most distin
guishes! Democrat, ono who has been the
candidate of his party for President"
He added: '
"He hasn't been n reactionary or pro
gressive" Democrat. Wo know no such
distinction. All Democrats are pro
gressive and Judge Parker is one of the
most progressive Democrats of all.
It was on this vote for permanent
chairman that the real stength of tho
majority nnd the minority in this con
vention was made plain. .Judge Parker
was elected by a vote of 112 to S5 for
Mayor Sague" Judge Parker was es
corted to the platform, where hn, made
nn interesting speech, in which he said:
I am a progressive Democrat I took
occasion to say lu the Baltimore convention
that we ate all progressive Democrats
now- That does not mean that necessarily
in the one highway all progress Is to be
foimd. 'I here is more than one highway.
Col Hooevelt and Col. Hryan, two of our
most distinguished citizens, have criticised
the Supreme Court of thn I'nlted States
because of Ms decision in the bakeshop
case, but did you ever hear before that I
wrote the opinion In the New York Stale
Court of Appeals that was reversed at
Washington? Tho fact is that I did and that
when I wrote that opinion five of the seven
Judges eif the Court of Appeals were op
posed to me However, two came over
to my position later and Judgment was
rendered four to three
It is unite true that there was a sug
gestion at Haltlmore that I was put forward
as temporary chairman to represent Thomas
P Hyan of New York: there was a suggestion
there that Kllhu Hoot was the temporary
chairman of the Heptihlican convention
and that 1 was presented for temporary
rhnirmnof the Democratic convention
that I might represent my client. There
was no client that I ever had that could
rontrol my political nction, hut further
than that, my fellow Democrats, Thomas
P. Hyan was never my client and never paid
me a dollar for services In my life
Now then, you may ask me, whv then did
the New Vork delegation with ninety men
sail twenlv-Hve nf whom wero capable
nf entering upon that platform not answer
the attacks made upon it and upon myself?
It was liecauso we believed that It was
better thut we should suffer a little indig
nity than by entering Into a discussion we
should divide that convention In two,
We held our peace for the good of De
mocracy and determined that New York
State should take no part In that contest.
which would prevent the people of the
Cnited States from uniting altogether In
favor of our national candidates,
I am perfectly willing, as our dear old
friend Senator Mill used lo say, to stand
by my record, believing that in the end It
will all come out all right in the wash, Hut
thn purpose, I believe, of Jhe gentlemen
who addressed this convention was to
endanger the cause that wo represent,
In my judgment I may do them an injus
tice, and I do nol wish to, but I could not
help but believe that their purpose was to
lay a foundation which was to work us
harm. And hence, my fellow citizens, I
have made these remarks, and now and
again for the benefit of the cause I resent and
repudiate the suggestion that I am now
or ever have been a reactionary.
Judge Parker then told In detail thn
record of the Democratio administration
at Albany during tliu last two years and
praised Gov, Dri for his part fn it. Thn
Governor's name, was again finely cheered
In the. convention,
Sen u tor Hobert 1 Wagner, chairman
of the committee on resolutions, then read
thn platform, which will be found in
another part of this paper.
It waa then that the breezy scone of the
convention occurred when Thomas Mott
Osborne, n member of thn committee on
resolutions, announced that hn had a
minority reniirt. He took the Dlatform
nnd Patrick K. McCabe of Albany oroso
unci saui tiiul lie wanted to ask a ciuca
tlon. There being no objection Mr. McCabe,
addressing Mr. Osborne, put this query;
"Were you not appointed Punlio Ser

and if so do vou not believe In the nrln-
ciplo that a favor carries, with it an
Mr. Osborne replied in snappy tone:
"Them was no obligation on my Dart.
even if n Republican Governor did ap
point me a Publlo Hervioo Commissioner,
urn oniigation was on me oilier siae.
That ended tho Incident.
Mr. Osborne, spoaklng for the minority
on thn platform commltteo. said that
there wan much good in the platform just
and His Home.
submitted "to which we can all subscribe
most heartily."
"Hut, "he added, "there are some things
which nre not true and a majority of tho
committee know them to be not true
and a majority of the people of the State
will know they nre not true. You t-ay
you have redeemed every pledge in the
Hochester platform. Is that true':"
A gnat shout of "Yes"ascendod. Mr.
Osborne said that he would not and could
not vote "for that plank in the platform."
This was followed by yells and howls
of disapproval.
.Mr. Osb
lorrio was further interrupted as
he questioned tho plank speaking of
Gov. Dix's efficient and clean adminis
tration. The convention wu in disorder
and was rebuked by Chairman Parker.
Mr. Osborne, when ciuiet was restored,
shot this question lit tho delegates:
"If that plank in the platform is true,
then why nre you to throw Gov. Dix
"How do you know wo are to throw
him overboard?" shouted some dele
gates. "Oh. I know vou nro to throw him over
board." replied Mr. Osnorne, "and you
know I know "
Mr. Osborne then demnnded thni the
plunk concerning tho constitutional con
vention and the initiative nnd referendum
be dropped, as it was a crawl. He sub
mitted a direct primaries plunk which"
would nominate all officers of the Stato
from tho Governor down bv direct pri
maries. Then Mr. Osborne made a speech
in wntcn ne saui:
This Is tho last time in n Democratic
convention when the group of sincere
Democrats whom I represent w ill be heard.
You think we ore fighting Dlx We aro
not, nor have we been. To do so would
be lo waste powder. His hour has struck,
and already, with that utter heartlessness
which politics only can produce It has
been decided that he Is to be thrown over
by the very men who are partners in his
failures and have profited by his error.
V ou think we are Ashling Murphy. We
are, in one sense, lor he Is the apparent
obstacle to genuine forward progress; yet
really we are not. His hour is about, to
strike. The long prepared storm which
conditions in New V ork city havo long been
preparing has already hurst, the lightning
is already naming, and (already one great
reputation has come crashing to the ground
And this man who sits here now, sur
rounded by his satellites, dispensing favor
dictating policies and distributing the
nominations of a great party look at lilm
well, for this Is tho last tlmo you will look
upon such a scene, For hint, too, tho hour
will soon strike, and upon die ruins of his
fall will arise tho New Vork Democracy of
the future
We are battling against those special
interests which are and have been from
the beginning of civilization the foes of
democracy, which are eternally tho same
whether they appear as thoso modern
corporate Influences personified by the man
w ho pulls the strings while Murphy dances -Thomas
P Hyan -or those railroad man
agers who through the action of this con
vention are even now- seeking to influence
the selection of Publlo Service Commis
sioners and the Judges of our highest court.
"Choose ye this day whom yo will serve."
On the one side stand Wuodrow Wilson and
the principles or progressive Democracy
on the other Charles K Murphy and the
cohesive power of public plunder.
Renator Wagner rushis:! to the platform
to answer Mr, Osborne and said bo was
disappointed because ho couldn't
le nominated for Governor and because
Gov. Dlx had declined to appoint him to
office. Senator Wagner continued;
"The gentleman from Cayuga, of whom
I am personally fond, has lieon preaching
humanities. It may not be uninteresting
for you delegates to learn that as head
of the Factory Investigating Commission

platform on which Oov. Dix was elected
have been redeemed.
The workmen's coaipenoation plank
differs from the like plnnk in the other
party platforms in that it favors the
enactment of n compiehen-ive workmen's
compensation Invv liy which the industries
tinder State supervision should hear the
financial burden of t"lie industrial risks
to the life nntl limb of the workmen.
There i nothing in the platform lor or
ORulnst th recall of .Indues or judicial
decisions, but there is a plank favoring
the convoniuR of a convention to revisy
thn State Constitution immediately, espe
cially concerniuj? the initiative, referen
dum nnd the t-hort ballot.
Hecardiiiij woman stiffraite the plat
form takes no position iipontheiiiestion,
but favors submittliiK to n vote of the
people as hoon ns possible the woman
suffrage constitutional amendment.
While Senator O Oorman has declared in
favor of a Statewide cliroct primary law.
including Statooflicers and the abolition of
the State convention, the plank adopted
by the convention to-day does not spe
cifically favdr such a law. but instead de
clares in favor of the principle nnd pledges
amendments to tho existing Kerris-Hlnu-
velt law that will simplify and perlecl tho
direct primary system. I.ikevvio the
Lew election law is indorwel tnrotigli
n plnnk fnvoring amendments which will
decrease tho expense) of its operation,
especially in the countrv .districts, nnd
which will facilitate the making of inde
pendent nominations.
Charles Murphy's suggestion that
the people of ihe Stato be admitted free
to the State Fair at Syracuse Is indorsed
in the) platform.
An important plank in tho platform
favors legislation restraining tho issue
of securities by corporations other than
public service) corporations except for full
value, nnd rceiuinng a statement under
oath by the directors of these corpora
tions enumerating ull property against
which securities nre issued. 'Ihis plank
is in tho interest of investors who are
induced through false prospect use to
invest in the securities of doubtful mining,
reul estate, nnd other corporations.
The platform also favors a non-partisan
legislative draft imr and revision commis
sion nnd tho widest publicity In tho work
of legislative committees.
1 lie appointment oi n practical railroad
man as u Public Service Commissioner is
also fuvored.
The platform rwlltled the national
platform and pledged loynl support to
Wilson nnd Marshall. Thn Republican
party In the nation was accused of
Increasing the cost ejf living SO per cent.
In the Inst fifteen years through the
high protective tariff.
The I'nyno-Aldrlch tariff revision was
characterized ns "fraudulent nnd dis
honest" and tho tariff wns blamed for
the growth of the trusts. President
Taft was condemned for vetoing thy
Democratic tariff bills nnd his recent
declarntlim for n "downwnrd revision of
the tariff wns declared to "confirm the
charges of the Democracy that In tho
revision of tho tariff by tho Kepubltcun
party tho people of tho nation wcro
shamefully betrayed."
Tho work of the Democratic House
wns commended.
Taking up State legislation, the plat
form de'clnred that "with the ndvont
of tho Democratic administration In
1WU tho scandals nnd corruption so
long tho slinmo of our Stato disappeared
from Albany,"
In Indorsing tho Dlx administration

We pledge ourselves to urge upon Con
gress the necessity of banking nnd cur
