THE SUN, SUNDAY, JULY 27, 1913. Yrao the expense of Uin Stato more than $3,000,000. "Tun attempt to rob the sinking fund ef thn Stiito In order to prevent a direct tux Whh Ignorntitly advocated by the committee of Inuulry and seised upon by nov. Hulrer'aa a delicious scheme to avn expenditure by repudiating contract obligations n.ade by the State. This proposition was finally abandoned by tho Governor when ho caino to realize that the proposal was unconstitutional and that the faith and creuit or mo mam were being Impaired by tho proposed ruinous financial policy. "Some persons do not seem to reollio tne complexion or inn prcsem inui"i iimi whiit niirt dm Itenutillrans nlaved In It. When Gov. Sulier was Inaugurated In January he found associated with him In the government of the .State a Legis lature composed, In the Senate of thirty three Democrats, seventeen Hepubllcans nnd one I'rouresslvo : In the Assembly, 10.1 Democrats, forty-two Hepubllcans and live Progressives, The seat of Sen ator Halniit, Progressive, was contested and on a recount of the votes. Senator Simpson, Democrat, was seated, giving the Democratic party two-thirds majority In both branches of the Legislature. Itrpnhllcnn Kept Pledge. "Owing to the III conceived, repressive nnd almost non-understandable election law enacted by the Democratic Legisla ture of 1911 and signed by Gov, Dlx, the Hepubllcans In January, although In a neipiess mummy, conierreu u'xnurr mii i introduced . lw in ItrcurilHIlir Willi me inrur uinuc by the KcpubllcMii platform adopted at ... . II .1.11 I,..,.-... .,J.,I..I ,.l Saratoga In 1912. Tho bills were In troduced by Senator tlrown and Assem blyman Vert and If enacted Into law would hale cleared the minds of the peo ple regarding the election law and would liavo established In nil political sub divisions less than tho State the experi ment of slmon pure direct nominations which. It must be admitted by every one, whether he believes In tho convention system or not. Is preferable to the pres ent committee designation, giving to party organltatlons a preferential column upon the primary ballot and the uso ot the party emblem. "These measures slept In committee. Repeated attempts to bring them out failed. After the legislature had been In session three months and Gov. Suiter and the Democratic majority had finally sev ered relations tho Governor came forward with a programme of retaliation upon his party associates based upon the Hepubll ran bills, but Including the abolition of the State convention, for the retention of which tho Republican platform had de clared In distinct terms, thereby alienat ing the Republican support which his proposed measure would otherwise have received. "This action made It appear that the Governor did not desire the aid of the Republican members of the Legislature, by making a proposal, which It was 1m Dosslble for them to sunnorL thereby re taining what he must have believed to be a popular Issuo for further personal ex ploltatlon. "On the other hand, tho two-thirds Democratic majority was equally opposed to the enactment of the legislation ad vocated by the Hepubllcans In accordance with their platform as it was to the pro posal advocated by Gov. Sulzer. The Governor' primary Bill, "The proposed primary legislation of Oov. Suiter therefore was not in the Interest of the clarification and reform of our rotten election law but was for the purpose of aiding him In his factious quarrel with the Democratic Legislature, In which the public has no interest ex cept that it has resulted in chaos in many State departments, has hampered ad ministration, destrojed efficiency and made the government of the State a laughing stock and a farce." "What do you think if this battle be tween Gov. Sulzer and Mr. Murphy?" Barnes was asked. "Whatever may be the peculiar mental characteristics of Gov. Sulier that add a touch of humor to the matter, there is a deeper cause." Mr. Karnes said. "It seems to me to bo this : New York State ha', almost from Its Very beginnings, been peculiarly a State of political Issues. There has hardly been a time when the political parties have not been largely under the Influence of some one person. I suppose Mr. Murphy stands In the light of that tradition and as such has place. It may be well to question whether this tradition will survive, but It Is still here, And as' long as it Is here thcie ought to be some modus vlvendl between such a party leader and a public official nomi nated and elected by the party of which he Is a member. ' "I nm ruther Inclined to think .Mr. Mur phy's Ideal Is based upon the methods of operation which have endured In the Demo cratic organization of the city of New -York and not those which must prevail In The State. If It Is admitted that there must lie a political agency ipresentlng 'tho organized party then thai political "agency must operate within very well tleflned lines. If It attempts to usurp In "any way thn functions of Government It IS' out ot Its place. ' "It Is Idle, on the other hand, to say the 'fiovernor of the State should not have political advice. No Executive has ever 'conducted himself successfully without It, although many have gone upon the rocks 'because the advice has been bad. -' Should Be .Vo Conflict. "It has always seemed to me, howeer, 'that there Is no necessary conflict between fhe Kxecutlvo and tho organized party. sft Is only when the latter gets a false sense of Its Importance or when the former be "comes a victim of delusion that these 'quarrels occur. There are many narrow , minded politicians who believe that a Gov "frnor of their own party Is a sort of pos session ; that he owes tremendous obliga tions to their activities. That Is a falso note and if It has been struck with Uov. Suiter he has a right to resent It. "Ills utterances, however, seem to In--"dlcate that he staged such an attitude and that ho courted the difficulty In which he Is placed and had rather relied upon the natural support of the people toward a .Governor as against the Legislature. The "former Is alwns presumed to be high ''minded; the latter Is always assumed to be self-Interested. History records very few successful battles made by the legisla tive body against the Kxecmlve. It Is perfectely clear, however, that tioth tho two-thirds Democratic majority out the advantages that would flow from JOf thn Legislature and Gov. Sulzer havelMr. McCabe's control of Albany city shown themselves utterly incompetent to 'and county, now that he has been turned tbnduct public business along any line of down as u candidate for Public Service Intelligent administration.

In fell state ment Secretary Piatt says: "Lleut.-Gov. Olynn's unprovoked, abu sive nnd Insulting attack on Gov. Bulser In the rimes Vnten of last night was a strange outburst of hatred and venom. The Governor had not even mentioned Mr. Glynn's name In connection with thn Issuance of thn false Jurats from the Senate on Wednesday night. Every one knows that Mr. Glynn stayed away from the session of Wednesday evening, and so. of course had nothing to do with the Issuance of the certifications regarding the passing of bills.

If Mr. Glynn does not know this everybody else I'oes and therefore his attack has made him an object of ridicule. "He had every' oportunlty to save him self from his present embarrassing and absurd position, for I assured him and his reporter, Mr. Stuart, that what the Gov ernor had to say concerning the falsi fication of the official records of the Leg islature Wednesday night. In order to make out that certain bills had been passed, was given out In typewritten form, and that I had referred- to this typewritten statement nnd found no ref erence In It to Mr. Glynn. The Stenographer's Ilvport. "As Mr. Stuart thought the Governor might have made some comment orally when ho gave out the typewritten state merit I spoke with the Ooernor ubout this and he gave me positive assurances that he had not mentioned Mr. Glynn. This was verified by the Governor's official stenographer, who sent me the following communication : " 'At your request I have carefully read over my stenographic notes of what Oov, SuUer said regarding the falsifica tion of the official records of the legisla ture on the proceedings had In the Legis lature the night ot Wednesday, the 23d Instant. ' 'The Governor did not mention Mr. I iynn s name, oirecuy or inoiieouy. lie gave out an official memorandum regard Ing the matter, and in his comments on it he said the records were attested by the respective presiding officers, and that they were false, as a quorum was not present In either house. Very truly yours, Hknjamin W. Smith, "Hxecutlve Stenographer.' "Mr. Olynn's furious denial of an of fence of which ho hail not been charged leads mo to ask why he remalnerj away from the session of Wednesday evening when it was his duty to bo present. He can attend with less Inconvenience than can most of the other members. "Did he mistrust that seventeen Sena tors were to conspire to pass bills for which an attendance of twenty-six, all voting In the affirmative. Is necessary'.'

It will be Interesting news for them to learn that In order to maintain the fiction that the Legislature Is now In session they were recorded as present In the Senate chamber und as xotlng In the nftlrmatlve on a number of bills. "Mr. Glynn's furious denial of an offence of which he has not been charged Is creditable to him In only one respect: It shows his appreciation of the fact that a most serious crime was committed Wednesday night when seventeen Sena tors were counted as twenty-eight Sena tors voting In the affirmative, and a false certificate was executed accordingly. "If Mr. Glynn wants to attack Gov. Suiter, why does he not attack him re garding questions upon which they differ? lilynn's AINIIntluna, "It is well known that Mr. Glynn has ceased to be an advocate of direct pri maries; that he now recognises Mr. Mur phy as the leader of the Democratic party In the State, while he used to rec ognize Mr. Hearst In this capacity, and that he believes Patrick .McCabe rather than Daniel J, Dugan should be entrusted with the responsibilities of leadership In Albany county. "Why does not Mr. Glynn attack the Governor for urging that the people should be entrusted with the power to nominate all public officials Why does he not come out In open defence of Mr. Murphy and his schemes to blacken the Governor's deputation and bring about his Impeachment? Why does lie not liolnt Commissioner, in pursuance or tnoscneme to hand that commission over to tho railroads? "These are all the questions upon which the Governor will Join Issue with Mr. loiyiin, but he will not undertake to show that Mr. Glvnn was In the Senate Cham 'ber Wednesday night or had any direct connection with the high handed schemes of the session that evening. Mr. Glynn was too shrewd for this. Even the vio lently Insane often show great shrewd ness." Two fuels of prime importance In the Murphy-?ulzer row over the State leader ship beebme known to-day. First, a move is expected dally on the part of thn legislative leaders looking to the Impeachment of the Governor before Octo It. l,Vf 1', I , t .IU1.I IIVI USUI! W W , her t on charges growing out of Suiter's "ollecled by him personally last fall. Kumor haa hud it that a very large sum of money. Perhaps as much us II00.OO0. was collected In that way, while the Governor accounted for onl' 14 "mull sum in thn statement of his campaign expenses, The committee has sent out a circular letter to those who were Interested In the Suiter campaign asking them to state what contributions ihey may have made personally to the Democratic candidate. The election law provides thai filing a j false statement of election eipenswUpuu. Ishnhle by a fine of not ctcerdltiB tl.non or by Imprisonment for not exceeding one year or by both line and Imprisonment Should the Frawley committee find ground for charging Ihe Governor with such a mis statement it would supply ground at the same time for Impeachment proceedings or the removal of the Governor from office. The Governor's certificate of election expenses shows receipts of l.'i.ton and ex penditure of 17,724.00. Section 701 of thn penal law permits n candidate for Governor to expend not exceeding lio.ooo In aid of his nomination and election. 1 he fact that Gov Sulzer had summoned District Attorney Whitman to Albany on July 13 to ask him to move against "his enemies In New York city" was published by Tiik Hun early this week, but It did not become known Vititlt to-day that the Gov ernor had specified Charles K. Murphy as t he direct object of thn attack. In return for the indictment of thn Tammany leader the Governor Is said to have offered to support Whitman In his Mayoralty fight. "Indict Murphy, indict him on general principles, Indict him on anything. Get behind me and I'll stand behind you," is the way that the Governor Is said to have put the matter tip to the District Attorney. "Hut what shall I indict him on?" Mr. Whitman Is reported as protesting. "Oh, on anything Just Indict him," the Governor came back. This version of ihn much talked of Sunday conference between Sulzer and Whitman waa given by an Intimate friend of the latter to-day. Mr. Whitman was amazed. He assured the Governor that he had absolutely noth ing on which to move against the Tammany leader anil left Albany with that answer. Gov. Suiter was asked to-night if the re. port of Ihe conversation between himself and District Attorney Whitman upon the latter's recent visit to the Executive Man sion was correct. "It Is not true," replied the Governor. The Governor's story of how he grabbed s six foot son pound "shadow" by the throat near the Capitol and shook it until its bones rattled has been the subject of much dis cussion here. So clue lias ever been un earthed as to the Identity of this "shadow" and the Governor's enemies have been unkind enough to assert the belief that It never existed except In his Imagination. In Ihe same way Ihey dismissed tn-duv the Governor's assertion that persons In New York city had sought to inspire an attempt on his life, SULZER'S CAMPAIGN ACCOUNT.

"What Is the real trouble with the! politics of the State of New York nowa-1 days?" I asked Gov. Sulier In his library. "Too much Murphy," replied the Gov-' ernor. 1 "How does Murphy manage to control the forces that cripple the administra tion? How does ho get his power?" 1 asked. The Governor paced the room. He ' paused and said slowly: "Murphy gets his power llko every' oilier tioss. Tne power to nominate can-, 1 dldates for office gives him the power to control these offlcu holders. Take away mis power irom tne ooss ami givo it to the people, to the voters, und tho day of . the political boss wilt be a thing of the past. That's nil there Is to It. Other Governors have fought political bosses In other States, but thero the fight wus not , so hard, there the bosses were not so In trenched as Murphy Is Intrenched In New I York, there the bosses were not so power- ' ful nor so rich. There the graft and plunder and corruption were not carried Ion upon so large a scnle as In New York. That Is the difference." The Governor walked oer to the table mid drew from a heap of documents n pamphlet. ' "This Is my speech of acceptance," sa!(il ' the Governor. "I said that If elected I would go Into office without a promise ' except my promise to ail thn people to serve them faithfully to the best of my , ability I said: 'I am free, without en-' , tangtetnents, and shall remain free.

"A little more than n week ago the Superintendent of l'rlsons, Judge ltlley, ordered the transfer of Sing Sing pris oners to Great Meadow or Danncmoru. Hut Murphy has caused the stop of the pay of the superintendent of the prison on the ulleged ground that his appointment was Illegal. The prisoners were not transferred. Herausc of the delay the prisoners set some of the buildings on fire and destroyed 1150,000 of property. Mnrpli)' In Control He n. "The contracts for building good roads are held up by Murphy. Muiphy has control of tho Comptroller's office. .Mur phy has control of the Legislature. He Is the legislature. The Legislature does what Murphy commands it to do. Mur phy has control of tip Department of Justice, of tho Attorney-General's officii. In other words. Murphy bus control of the law making body and of the purse strings of tho Stale government, and by means of thesu agencies he can tlo up the entire State and paralyze all Its de partments. "Murphy Is trying to have tllo execu tive government purulzeil in order that I may bo hindered In detectlifj the graft ers nnd prosecuting them. Thus Murphy Is plunging the State of New Yoik Into chaos." "How long ngo did Murphy secure con. trol of the State of New York"" I asked. "Murp'-y secured control of the State during tho Dlx administration. Dlx was only a proxy. Tho trouble was that Mur 'New York Gty 'Th Tdtphone Capital of the World" "Neighborhood Rates" for Telephone Service GREATER NEW YORK, as we know it today, is simply the result . of the growth and consolidation of a number of small villages which L at one time dotted the area now included within the five boroughs. Even today, the city is divided into a number of neighborhoods. There are Manhattan, Harlem, The Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn, the Shore Dis tricts of Rockaway and Coney Island, Flushing, Jamaica and the Districts around Long Island City. Each neighborhood has its business center and its social section, and in each neighborhood the great bulk of business and social intercourse is between the people within its own boundaries. Ninety-five per cent, of the telephone calls made by the average New Yorker are to subscribers in the same neighborhood. Most of the tele phone talks are local or "short-haul" calls, just as the bulk of telephone talks between subscribers in the small towns or cities in other parts of the country is local. In recognition of this condition, the telephone rates of New York City are based upon the " neighborhood " or "Zone System." Rates for each neighborhood have been made to cover the average usage of the subscriber to other subscribers within that neighborhood, and a toll charge is made for the occasional longaul" calls to subscribers in other neighborhoods or Zones. Under this method the average rate paid by the subscriber on the largest percentage of his calls is materially lower than would be possible under a method permitting any subscriber within the city to talk without toll charge to subscribers in all parts of the city. The Zone System is logical and equitable. It fits the service to the needs of all the people, and in conjunction with the Message Rate, each user is charged according to the scope as well a the quantity of service used. It has broughTthe service within the reach of more people and in no small measure nas helped to provide in New York City The Most Complete Telephone Service in the NEW YORK TELEPHONE COMPANY phy expected me to be another Dlx, a proxy Governor, a rubber stamp. I would not bu mi agent for anybody except the people. Tho people elected me and I nm determined to be their fiovernor. "Hut how could you expect to carry out your pledge to tho people without the aid of tho Legislature?" i "I got along harmoniously with tho Legislature until Murphy Instructed them to make war oti me. All would have been well If Murphy had only kept his hands off the Legislature. When I became Governor Murphy wanted to be Governor nnd 1 wouldn't permit him, Ile wnnted to name nil public ofHoera, re gardlcsa of their integrity, ability, hon esty or fitness for position. Then lie wanted to force me to leave tho grafters alono nnd to connive with the political conspirators who woro looting the State. Then he wanted me to sign some very bad bills which he had put through the Leirlsl.iture. Then he was opposed to rarrylng out the pledges made to the people direct primaries and other meas ures. Tells What Morohr Wanted. "Murphy wanted Jim Gaffncy for High way Commissioner; Thn McManua for La bor Commissioner: Dackey McCabe and George I'almer for Public Bervlce Com missioners and other nppolntements than these. I have refused to make these ap pointments. "When Murphy found out that he could not cajole me, when he saw that hn couldn't bribe me, he began to tlrrcaten me. He accused me of every conceivable thing of which a man can be guilty from stealing a body to murder. Mur phy said that he spent half a million dollars to drive McClellan from public Ufa nnd that he would spent! a million to drive me from public life. "A political conspiracy was formed In New York between Murphy nnd his closest friends. They agreed to start a crusade to discredit me and to destroy my use fulness nnd then to Impeach me. There Ii not the slightest doubt about this crim inal conspiracy. It will b Investigated by a special Grand Jury There is noth ing Hint Murphy nnd his hirelings and detectives and thugs will stop at In their efforts to Injure me. Hut there Is nothing th.it will coerce or Intimidate me. I am .going to do my duty, regardless of per sonal or political consequences. I nm not a hypocrite. I cannot deceive the people.
