The six mile run wa o pared as to bring t)ie head of tlie prorrvloli to the foot ofthe great stairway leuillint to the Senate end of the Capitol at noon. All along the rout? there were outbursts of applause, A ronton of niounteil police preceded the proepsslon as far as the entrance to the Capitol ground, but In striking illsslm llarlty to the HiilTraiie ilemoiistratlon of Mnrch .1, the presoni'e of the blilccoat wos wholly uiiniti'ss.iry llrrnrd by Moritnitn MulTrnKlst.

As each Senator responded to the call to "stand and deliver an opinion," me uffrogits were ushered to the marble room. Their reception was cordial. F.ven the Southern Senators, who will oppose the general proposition of a constitutional amendment, listened with grave attention to the brief argutiieul. In every instaficu the Senator were presented with the pe tition of the various States, which tint suffragists brought with them. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois, New York, Massachusett and Indiana nd the Senator from the trausuilsllppi region received the more bulky petitions, but none was forgotten. The Senate's morning hour was given over to speeehmaklng In behalf of the suffrage cause. A special section of t5u eeat had been reserved in the women' galleries tor the siilTrairNl. They heard Hpecches Irom Senators. Shafroth of Colos ratio, Owen of Oklahoma. Sherman of Illinois, Works of California, Ashurst of Arizona, Smoot of I'tah, Lane of Oregon and I'olnilexter and Jones of Washington, All the speeches were in support of the MiffruKistH contention. It was not a debate, but the Miffrasiftt seemed to enjoy the demonstration of friendship and fealty to the cause expressed upon the floor. The National Council of Women Voter were among the leading participant of the demonstration nnd the Federal Women' Equality League waa another organisation which engaged in bringing about Hum Tort at presenting so graphically the femiuiuii aide of the kUtTruge argument. Feel They Made an Imprraalun, The petitioners left the Capitol convinced that they had made a serious Impression. They believe the resolution providing for the constitutional amendment will be voted upon without doubt either at this or the next succeeding session of Congress. Tbey did not attempt a poll of the Senate, but several unofllcial poll were mado through comparison of the statement made by the individual Senator and their past act and utterances, and these showed that the woman suffrage .amendment will not pas the Senate. There Is reason to believe t hut the vote of the Senate will show hardly a majority In favor of submission of the amendment to the legislature of the various Stale; wherea two-third of the 8enate must vote In favor of the resolution to paaa It under the Constitution. New York waa not represented in the Senate to-day, so that the New York peti tion were delivered to Iho Vice-President. Senator Hughe waa wuylald by the New Jersey delegation of two a aoon a the proceedings had commenced. Mr. Martine of New Jersey constituted himself Capitol guide for a bevy of suffragist and escorted them around. The petition were presented In the Senate ChanaLer by Senator themselves, thus furnishing tho opportunities for the speeches. Senator Smoot In presenting the Utah petition attacked militancy, saying that In his experience suffrage haa not and should not interfere with the God Imposed duttea of wife, mother and daughter. He was applauded heartily. "Suffrage should be given, not to the I'ankhurst and the militant radical among our women," said Senator Smoot, "but to those who follow In the womanly footstep of the American pioneers for suffrage Susan 1). Anthony, Elizabeth Cody Stanton and women of their kind." A banquet at which covers were laid for 300 was given to-night at the llrlghton Hotel. Miss Alice Paul, chairman of the Woman' Congressional Union, presided, and the respondent to the list of toasta included Senators Thomaa of Colorado, Itansdell of Louisiana, Ashurst of Arltqna and Owen of Oklahoma and Mrs. James I.eea Laldlaw, Mrs. Susan Fitzgerald and Mrs. Mury Waro Dennett.

Harney it Co. and former president of the Auto mobile Club of America, were disclosed yesterday when the parties to the suit asked Supreme Court Justice Donnelly to appoint a referee. He named Thonm W. Churchill, president of the Board of Edu cation. Mrs. Sanderson alleges many acta of misconduct with a woman unknown to her.

HITS SUICIDE THEORY IN CAHILL MYSTERY Doctor at Coroner's Tnii:pst DeciH'iis I'nzzliiifr Case of Dead Policcinan. PHKSKXTS NEW PROBLEMS I.vlnir Man Could Not Have gloved Revolver; Hlood Stains on Club Unexplained. The mvHtcry surrounding the death of rollcenian John K. Cahlll of Riooklyn, who wa fotmd Inthe yard of St. Mat thew'a ltoman Catholic Church at Utlcn nvenue and Lincoln place on Monday morning a week ntro with knlfo wound In Id body and a bullet through his head, was deepened by testimony Klven yester day at the opening of the Coroner'B In quest. Kven Deputy Police Commlsloner Dougherty, though obviously leaning toward the suicide theory, admitted that certain phases of the case disconcert the ory. It wn Impossible, to exululn linn- Cnhlll'a nightstick became bloodstained. There was no other blood near the stick. Coroner' Physician Wucst. In his testi mony, brought out this mystifying fact. He ulso called attention to another fact of even greater significance the position of ti?e revolver, ' found on the rlnht side near the knee, failed to uiiort the the ory that Cahlll shot himself In the left temple In trying to make It appear that he was Killed by burglars. Victor I.. Schuldham of 1.109 Mncoln place told how his wife called his atten tion to the lody In the churchynid and how he gave the alarm after satisfying himself tluit it waa a dead policeman who lay there. Lieut. Oustave Van Duzen testified that he found Cahlll I vine on his back lust off the three foot Hag stonewalk that skirt the building. Ill legs were crossed, hi feet toward the side door, where the Jimmy lay. Near the fingers of the right nami lay tne revolver with which Cahlll was Killed. The handle pointed toward the linger and the barrel toward the leg. The nightstick lay under the arm. be tween the elbow and the Hhoulder. The police cap was near and almost directly back of the head. Maw Xo Mkb of StruKKl. Detective John MacKlrdy said that there was no dirt on Cahlll's uniform. He naw no signs of a struggle. Both Van Duzen and MacKlrdy testified that blood waa on the nightstick. Neither recol lected seeing anything that would Indi cate It was CnhlU's own blood. MacKlrdy remembered that he saw a small kx1 near the wound on the right side of Cahlll' head. This, however, could not have atalned the nightstick. Dr. Wucst was certain that Cahlll could not have moved the nightstick after he received the wound In the head. The bloodstains on tho nightstick were Just where they would have been If Cahlll had used the club In defending himself, but the two police lieutenants thought till Improbable, Ambulance Surgeon Hamilton told of finding peculiar marks upon the ground near the body. "Some of these were deeper thnn others," he said. "All were about two Inches In diameter. What caused these marks has not been ex plained. Dr. Wuent In testifying concerning the bullet -wound that killed Cahill said that the policeman's head must have been held rigid when the shot was tired. A-wiatant District Attorney Conway then asked him whether the wound could have been Inflicted by some one other than Cahlll. "Ves," replied Dr. Wuest, "provided he was unconscious or somebody was hold ing his head to the ground when the shot was fired." He added that It would have been noceesary to hold the head as "though It were In a vise." Couldn't Hare Moved lievolver. Dr. Wuest testified that ho did not be lleve this could have been done by one, scarcely by two men, as the least wrlrclo would have left a smudge of powder on the outer skin. Then he spoke or another seeming Impossibility the shifting of a revolver by a man who mutt have died within twenty seconds after he was shot nnd whose muscular energy must have been totally paralysed when the bullet entered his head. "He could not have placed the gun on his right side If he had shot him self on the left," said Dr. Wuest. Deputy Police timmlssloner Dougherty testified that the Jimmy found near the body waa taken from the Atlantic avenue police station, to which Cahlll was at tached at the time of his death, and that the revolver waa borrowed by Cahlll from his wife's uncle. Dougherty told of a per plexing discovery he had made. He said that ho had found It necessary to break the bolt on the church door in order to open It with a Jimmy found near Cahlll, and yet It apparently had been forced open whi"n the policeman's body waa found. Tho sacristan was sure that hn bolted the door from the Inside before leaving the church on the night before tha tragedy, nnd 5Ir. Dougherty dos not be llevo tho bolt could have been thrown by a Jimmy. Mrs. Cahlll on tho stand denied that there was any motive for suicide, so far us Him know, other witnesses will be examined to- by Storm on White House Lawn 'MM' BEGGED SCHIFF GIFT Continued rom First Vagr. vetoed the appropriation to pay tho ex pense of the Krnwlej Investigating com mittee, tho next meeting Is to bo held In New York city, to ie the expense of witnesses coming to Albany. It would cost about f300 to btlng the New York city witnesses hfre to testify about the Sulzer campaign funds. Mr. It Icblirds's KiplHtiiitlon. "I want to ask the mcmlH-r of the com mittee." vald Counsel Itlchard. at the end of the day' session ol the committee, "to consider the advisability of having ses sion In New York city, where a very largo number of prominent financier and financial Institutions are located, some of whom we shall want to call as witnesses In order to get at the Sulzer campaign fund deposits. Some of these gentlemen have been In Kurope, but are expected back. I think that If an adjournment I taken to next week we shall be able to get some of them before the committee. "With regard to Mr. San-cky, 1 under stand the (Jovernor has asked for an opinion Irom the Attorney-Ocneral on the powers of this committee. 1 feel we ought to wait until the chief law officer of the State has an opportunity to render an opinion." MARSHALL ATTACKS INQUIRY. arrcU, Coansrl Snj Committee la Actios; lllesnll)'. Iouls Marshall, counsel for I.otils A. Sarecky, made this statement yester day . "I inn informed through the news papers that the committee of which Sen ator Krnwley I the chairman, which undertook yesterday to examine ray client. Louis A. Sarecky. with respect to moneys claimed to have been received by him during the political campaign of 1912, has given Instruction that 1 be sub pit'tined before the committee to state the lea son which prompted me to advise him not to submit to any Interrogation on that subject und for the purpose of ascer taining whether 1 had contt tbut'-d any funds to tJov. Sulztr or In support of his candidacy. "This Is u course of procedure so extraordinary und Illustrative of the lawlessness of the propoid Investigation, especially In view of the fact Hint Mr. Sarecky was refused the upixirtunlty of being represented by counsel before the committee, nlthough he requested that I right, that 1 cannot refrain from availing I myself of this invitation in order that I ' may state the fcasons which I would have urged had I been permitted to ap pear before the commltte-. "They are. In brief, that the committee lias no Jurisdiction to enter upon the pro posed inquisition. H powers, a are those of the Legislature, are limited by the Constitution. That Instrument declares. 'In explicit term (Art. IV. see. ), that the Governor shall have power to con vene the Legislature on extraidlnary oc casion and that at extraordlnaty ses slops no subject shall be acted upon ex cept such as the Governor may recom mend for consideration. "The regular session of the Legislature terminated prior to June 1. 1913. It was reconvened for an extraordinary session by the Governor, who recommended specific subjects for Its consideration. The inquisition which this committee has sought to set In motion I not Included within any of tho recommended subject. It would seem, therefore, that the com mittee which Is seeking to interrogate Mr. Sarecky had no more right to require him to testify us to the mattctH concern ing which It has chosen to apply Its thumbscrew processes, than It would have to question him with regard to the oper ations of national banks or the construc tion of levees on tho Mississippi River. "It Is true that this objection rests upon tho Constitution, and that In cer tain quarters such an objection Is sought to be decried as unpopular. I have advised Mr. Sarecky to uwnlt the occasion when, under proper protection and legitimate safeguards and having the opportunity to be represented by counsel, he may be permitted to state all of th facts and shall not be confined to giving answers to specific questions, cunningly framed and dewlgned to elicit half truths only, which would make his statement In complete, misleading and Uiaccurute, "Lest It be believed from the Innuendoes of the committee's counsel that 1 am personally concerned in this mutter I cheerfully state that during the campaign of 1913 I did not contribute a single penny for or on behalf of any cnmlldute for office except those of the Republican party, to which 1 have the honor to be long, and only through the duly con stituted national. State, county und Assembly district committees." LEVY DENIES $10,000 GIFT. Iteprraentatlve Declares Hp Donated Kotlilnw to Kaiser Fssil, One of the rumors growing out of the Frawley committee's Investigation Into Gov. Sulzcr'a campaign fund yesterday was that Jefferson M. Levy, Representative In Congress from the Fourteenth district, contributed $10,000 to the Governor's fund. According; to the report Sulzer was favoring tho candidacy of Henry II. Mar tin for Congress, formerly director In an Alaskan company In which Sulicr years ago was Interested, but that ho threw over Martin nnd supported Levy after re ceiving the )10,000 contribution, Martin, whose name has been linked with that of David Lamar la the head of the Anti-Trust league nnd during tha campaign last fall was registered at the Hotel Hrevoort. He could not be found In this city yesterday at the address glven In tho directory of directors, and his name la not In thu telephone book or city directories. When Bepreeentatlvo Levy, wag tnUr : - r viewed nt hi office, 12R Hroadwny, he nssetted that the Itimor was absolutely untrue. He said that the report bad been circulated fir nt during hi campaign. "1 wish to say," he said, "that the story that I contributed Jto.oOO to Oov. Sulzor's campaign In ntiy shape or form Is untrue. I did not give any money to Mr. Sulzcr'a campaign. "1 did give J.'OO to Tammany Hall and that I could not help because I am n member of the Tammany Hall finance committee. You see. I had to be careful of my contribution under the law nnd I wn mighty sorry that because of tho limited amount I could spend I could not give money dlrrctly to help Mr. Sulzer. I felt that I owed him much In connection with my nomination to Congress, which came nfter I had given up hope of being returiiul to tlie House of Hepresentatlves. "Mr. Sulzer and 1 have been friends ror years nnd I am veiy fond of him. In th course of the campaign Martin did every thing possible to annoy me." SWITCH TO ROAD INQUIRY.

The Frnwley com mittee Inquired to-day into the contract of the Standard rtltullthlc Companv of New York to build a good road eleven and one-half mile long between Smith town and Port Jefferson. L. J. . As n result of hi Investigation last spring John A. Heunessy declared that Tam many men wero Interested In cementltlous gravels which wero provided as a founda tion for new roads. The Port Jefferson road was one of these contract. The testimony was directed to show that tin- contract was cancelled through the Influence of Joseph Ciirran, who wa employed by Mr. Hennesv In his In vestigation of graft In good roads con struction, and who I now chief of main tenance of road In the State Highway Department. Mr Curran forim-rlv was a solUltor for the Stand.ud iiltuilthic Company nnd has n suit against tho company for JlBO.nnn for commissions on business secured by him. Itlchard W. Turner of Garden City, president of the Standard Illthullthle Company: Thomas J. Gerhart. superin tendent of the company, and C. F. Ackerman. a newspaper man living near the Port Jefferson road, were the wit nesses through whom Counsel Klchards tried to show that Curran had.au.sed the cancellation of the contract and had tried through Gerhart to have President Turner settle his 1150,001) suit against the com pany If the State Highway Department should permit the company tu go ahead and build the read. J. II. Sturdevant. acting Superintendent of Highway after C Cordon Heel waa removed by Gov. Strlzer. testified that he was told by Gov. Sulzer to cancel the contract. MULHALL WRANGLES WITH COMMITTEEMEN -Mamlfaetllrers E.v-Lobb.vist Contradicts Himself on Cross Eamination. Wahhisxto.v, July 31. The cross-examination of Oh Martin M. Mulhall was marked by many wrangle to-day. More than 200 questions are to be propounded to Mulhall under the lobby committee's ruling, which provides that all questions of cro.-.. examination must first bo sub mitted In printed form to the committee and passed upon by them. Judge Robert McCarter, counsel for the National Association of Manufacturers wanted to read the questions himself. Mulhall yelled a protest, "1 won't answer those question asked me In that way!" ho shouted. "I want counsel and I will go to Jail but what 1 will havu it." Twice Mulhall bioke out about desiring to be represented by counsel and twice he wus quelled by Chairman Overman. Ho refused to answer a question as to the dates of certain notes Interchanged be tween himself and "Ike McMlchaels." The National Association of Manufac turers through their counsel express grave dissatisfaction with the method of exami nation as thus far pursued. This protest was voiced by James A. Kmery, Washing ton counsel for the organization. In a spirited appeal to the committee. Hu said: "I appeal to you as public men repre senting our noblest deliberative body to reconsider now the limited, restricted and tnefrcrtlvo rlvht nf intt.rrmy.ttnn .t.lMi. bearing the color of cross-examination, Is uivcnieu ui every nuDniauinti leaiurc.

HOW IT MIGHT HIT SUL55ER WHfnl Failure to File n Correct Stntoinciit Calls for Loss of Office. New York's corrupt practices act, that part of the election law requiring a can lldatc to make public his expenses nnd telling him what he may and may not spend money for, 1 six years old. This measure was sponsored In the first administration of Gov. Charles K. Hughes by Senator J. Mayhew Wnln wrlght of Westchester. Gov. Hughes wus strongly In favor of It. Ex-Judge William H. Wndhama waa another worker In Its , behalf, nnd In the pitched battle over di rect primaries the corrupt prnctlces measure went through the Legislature without particular difficulty. Although It has been modified In minor provisions, the law I essentially the same ns given In tho Consolidated Laws of New York 11909). It Is tersely worded and strict. It requires vouchers for expendi tures or 5 or more. It Is not hard upon the man who may Innocently violate Its provisions, but where "wilful" dodalna la I shown the penalty may be a 11,000 Una or a year s imprisonment or both. What a Candidate Star spend. The law is drawn to cover Individuals and political parties Impartially. What a candidate may spend Is defined as fol low: "A candidate for election to a public office, nnd any other person, may Incur and pay, In connection with such election, his own personal expenses for travelling; for writing, printing and preparing; for transmission any letter, circular or other publication not Issued at regular Inter vals, whereby he may state his position or views upon public or other questions; for stationery nnd postage; for telegraph, telephone and other public messenger ser vice; but all such expenses shall be lim ited to those which are directly Incurred and paid by him. A candidate shall In any event file a statement of any con tributions made by him." The secretary or campaign manager of a candidate must account to the can didate for all money contributed to his campaign. This section demanded Jhat Louis A. Sartky. Gov. Sulzer's confiden tial secretary, report to him all such con trlbutlons as Jacob H. SchlfTa check for $2,500 and Ahram I. Elkus's gift of 1500, The law reads: "Whoever, acting ns an officer or mem ber or under the .nifi.nvie.. ..n.i committee, or under the authority of a '"'"" ir iiuunc omce, receives any money or Its equivalent, or promises of the same, or exnenHa n- n... liability to pay the same, shall, within ") uixer uemanei, ana In any event within fourteen days nfter such receipt, exprntiuure. promise or liability, give to the treasurer nf an.'li or to such candidate if nn agent author ized by him. a detailed account of the same, with all voucher required or this uriuie. wnicn snail he a part of the account and fllwe nf neh r.o. ,.. such candidate," Must Kile .Nfatrraeat.

Sulzer's was. Section 776 of the , Penal l-iw Is the thing thnt puts a serious uspeci upon ino cnarges brought against the Governor. This section calls wilful failure to file a correct statement n misdemeanor nnd makes It an offence for which tho ofllcer "aholl forfeit his office." The section rends: "Kvery candidate who Is voted for at nny public election hedd within this State shall, within ten days nfter such election. Ille a hereinafter provided nn Itemized statement thnutnp in ilernll all inaney co7imuinr or rxjicnaca oy mm, atrtcllu or indirectly, by hitiuclf or laroup any otnrr person, in aid of Ms election.

Candidate for ofllres to be filled by tho electors nf the entire State or any division or district thereof greater than a county shall file their statements In the office of the Secretary of Btato. "Shall Forfeit Ills Ollre." Any candidate for onto who refuses or neglects to file a statement as pre scribed in (hi tectlon shall be guilty of n misdemeanor and shall also forfeit hla omce." Section 711 of the Penal Law limits the amount to be spent by a candidate for Governor to $10,000. Gov, Sulzer tiled expenses of $7,734. A gift of $2,600 from Mr. fiohlff would bring the total to $10,224 and such an expenditure would bo a mis demeanor. Section 781 reada In part: "Any candidate for a public office who shall expend for the purpoaea abova men tioned an amount In excess of the aum herein specified shall be guilty of a mis demeanor." The penalty for violation of either Sec tion 776 or 781 la prescribed In Section 782. thus: "Any person convicted of a mis demeanor under thla article shall for a Orst oHenoa ha BuaJahed by, Imprlaotv ment for not more than one year, or by a fine nf not less than $100 nor more than $500, or by both such fine and Imprisonment. Any person convicted of a misdemeanor 'tinder this article for a second or subsequent offence shall be guilty nf n felony." Method of Impeachment. impeachment of the Governor requires only n majority or tne state Assemnty in favor of It. The State Constitution says: "The court for tho trial of Impeach ments shall be composed of tho Prcsldrnt of the Senate, the Senators or tho major part of them, and the Judges of the Court of Appeals, or the major part of them. On the trial of nn Impeachment against the Governor or Lieutenant-Governor, the Lieutenant-Governor shall not act as n member of tho court. No person ahall be convicted without the concur rence of two-thirds of the member present. Judgment In cases of Impeach ment shall not extend further than to removal from office, or removal from office and disqualification to hold nnd enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under thla Btate; but the party Impeached shall be liable to indictment nnd punishment according to hiw," RARE DISEASE KILLS PARK WATER FOWL Fine Collection Almost Wiped Out by Spinal Men ingitis. Central Park's collection of water fowl, considered one of the finest In the country, ha been almost wiped out dur Inn the paat few days by an unusual disease, diagnosed a spinal meningitis. Since Sunday, when the first evidences of the epidemic wero discovered, nearly 200 dead swans, ducks nnd geese of all varieties have been picked up by the keepers. On that day twenty dead ducks were found along the edges of Swan Lake. On Monday about forty dead ducks nnd swans were picked up. It was supposed that the lightning killed some during the heavy storm of that day. Hut the next day there were fifty dead geese and ducks. More died on Wednesday and now there are few ducks left and the remnant of tho flock consists of about fifty white swans and a few Canada geeye and the ducks. The keeper reported to Park Commis sioner Stover that It looked ns though spinal meningitis was responsible. The reiaaon for this opinion was that the dying birds had rigid necks nnd swelled heads. The wnter In Swan Lake has been In an apparently foul condition during the hot weather and this Is supposed to be re sponsible, stagnation was the cause of the pollution. The collection of fowl Included white and black swans, Egyptian geese, Cana dian geese, mallard and wood ducks and also varieties from China, the Philippines and other distant parts.
