Woert of Liewli nnd Cola of Oi leans.
Democrat!, and Bryant of Ucncser, He
publican. "Mr. rresldcnt," spoke Chairman Van
Woert, as the committee was announced
to the Senate officially by tho sergeant
at srms. "In obedience to the order of
tho Assembly we appear before you In
the name of the Assembly of the Htate
only and of all the people of the State
only, we do Impeach William Suiter, Gov
ernor Of the State of New York, of wilful
and corrupt misconduct In office and for
high crimes nnd misdemeanors and w
do further Inform the Senate that the
Assembly will In due time exhibit article
of Impeachment against him and make
good the sam and In their name we
demand that the Senate shall make order
for the appearance of said William Suiter
to answer said Impeachment."
"Tho chair begs to assure you that the
Senate will make tho proper order In
the premises, notice of which will be
Riven to the Assembly," responded Presi
dent Wagner
Hardly had this committee bowed Itself
out of the Senate Chamber befote the
Sergeant-at-Arms announced the clerk of
the Assembly, George W Vanamee. at the
bar of the Senate.
"As clerk of the Assembly," said Mr.
Vanamee, addressing the presiding officer
of the Senate, "and under the direction
of the Assembly I Inform ou anil the
honorable the Senate that the Assembly
through the Speaker have appointed muti
neers to conduct the Impeachment against
William Sulzer, Governor of the State
of New Yoik. and hae Instructed the
said managers to coisiey to Hi" Senate
the articles agred upon by the As
sembly to he exhibited in maintenance of
their Impeachment against said William
Board of Mauatiera.
Then came the board of managers of
nine members appointed by Speaker Al
fred K. Smith of the Assembly, who will
prosecute the articles of Impeachment
against William Sulzer before the court
of Impeachment, comprising the seven
elected Judges of the Court of AppeaK
and forty-nine State Senators. This board
of managers Is authorized to appoint
counsel, a clerk and messenger and will
have all the poweis of a 1eglskitle com
mittee. The majority leader, Aaron .1. Levy. Is
the chairman, of the board He has had
much to do with the legal preparations
preliminary to the Institution of the Im
peachment proceedings. The committee
will annolnt John li. Stanclifield of NVw
York as counsel to proecute the articles I
of Impeachment If Mr. Stauclitleld returns j
iron, curiijw in time rur me opening i
the trial, set for Thursday, September in.
If Mr. Stanchlleld Is not to be here In
time there is talk of the selection of ex-
State Senntor Kdgnr T. Hrackett of Sara-
tos as counsel. Me. H-.uk.,tf i,wiy i..
be the Republican candidate for Chief
Judge of the Court of Appeals at the No.
vember election.
It was the original Intention for the
rourt to hold Its flint session on Septem
ber 22. but It was decided finally to con
vene on the preceding Tliutstl.ty so that
the rules of procedure may be drafted
and adopted In time to permit the tailing
af testimony by Monday, September 22,
Reason for the Haatr.
The haste in convening the couit of
Impeachment by 'resident Wagner us
early as Is permitted by the Constitution
Is due to the fact that the Court of Ap
peals reconvenes September 2!t for Its fall
term and It is the hope that the court of
Impeachment cu complete Its work be
fore that time. The Constitution provides
that the Governor can have between
thirty and sixty das notice to answer
and the Senate has given the minimum
notice to him.
The other members of the board of
managers besides Chairman Levy are Mc
Mahon, Ward, Greenberg, New York;
Gllleii, Brooklyn; Madden, Westchester;
Fitzgerald, Krle. Democrats , Schnlrel,
Ontario and T. K. Smith. Onondaga, Re
publicans. The committee stood in the main aisle
Of the Senate before the bar of the house
while Mr. Levy read the articles of Im
peachment, mostly in a low, almost
studied voice. The document contained
nearly .1,000 words. The only time Mr.
Levy's voice changed was when lie
reached the more important accusations
against the Governor, and these he
brought nut with emphasis.
"The articles of Impeachment are heieby
received by the President of tile Senate
nnd by the Senate." said Piesldent Wag
ner, as .Mr. Levy finished reading the
nrtlcles, "and the Senate will In due time
appoint a day for the trial of the im
peachment." Senator Wagner ptomptly announced
that he would call the court of impeach
ment to he summoned to meet at the
fnnttnl At nnnn nn Thupnl.i. u.a, .,- '
ber 18.
This ended the piellmlnailes In the
Kenate toward the promulgation of the ar
ticles of Impeachment against Gov. Sulzer
and the preparation for the convening of
the court of impeachment.
All that remained for the State Assem
bly to do when It met this afternoon af
ter Its all night session was to adopt the
resolutions providing for the appointment
of the committees which waited upon the
flenate and notitled that body of the Inltla
tlon of impeachment proceedings.
Senator Hronn'a Comment.
Just before the State Senate adjourned
the minority leader. Senator Klon It. i
Hrnwn of Wiitermwii p.iitp,i ,.tt..,i,.
to a matter which he consldeied of "tiy-'
in pudiic importance at this time,
namely that Article 6, section 13 of the
State Constitution provides that the As
sembly shall have the power of Impeach
ment by a vote of the majority of all the
members elected, and that Article 4, sec
tion 6, provides that In case of the Im
peachment of the Governor or his re.
moral from office, Inability to dischaige
the powers and duty of the said office,
resignation or absence from the State, the
powers and duties of the office shall de.
volve on the Lieutenant-Governor for the
residue of the term or until the disability
shall cease.
"For hundreds of years," aald Senator
JlreWn, "the meaning of Impeachment has
hfcen well settled and understood. Im
peachment consists In the action taken
by the Assembly, together with a pre
sentation of the charges of articles of Im
peachment to the Senate. It Is doubtful

Senator Declares That He Fears
No Person In or Out

Aubant. Aug. 13. During the session
of the Senate to-day Senator James Fraw
ley. chairman of the Frawlev legislative
investigating committee, rose to a ques-
non en personal privilege to uenv a story
Published In the newspapers that he had
sought uu audience with Gov. Sulzer yes
teruny, wmi u view of preventing Hn at
tack cither from Gov. Sulrer or John A.
Ilennessy. upon his character.
While Senator Frawley would not di
vulge publicly the leason which actuated
his visit to the chamber at such a critical
time. It was learned that Senator Fraw
ley's visit was due to the fact that Gov.
Sulzer had sent for him nnd had asked
the Senator If he could not tlx things up
with the Stute organization so that there
would be no further attempt at Impeach
ment proceedings.
Senator Frawley made It nlaln tn nor.
Sulzer that the latter had gone too far In
his attacks upon the Democratic State
organization to permit the leaders to re
consider for a moment their determina
tion to eliminate him not only from the
Kxecutlve Chamber but from all party
councils In the future.
It Was after this visit of Senator Fra.
ley to the Governor that Mr. Ri,i.r
made public through Senator Palmer the
statement that she had indorsed and de
posited the campaign fund contribution
checks without the Governor's knowledge.
"It has come to my notice," said
Senator Frawley In addressing the Senate,
"tnrougn a statement In a morning paper
that J visited Gov, Sulzer yesterday, Yes,
I visited Gov, Sulzer yesterday and will
visit Gov. Sulzer every day that he Is
nere ana i am Here,
"My visit yesterdoy was nurelv out of
friendship. And my frlendahln for riov.
Sulzer has not changed one lota even In
his darkest moments. I had u duty to
perform to my colleagues In the Legis
lature, and that Is what the committee
attempted to do, to lie eminently fair In
every respect, and I feel that they have
carried It out to the letter.
"Now, as far as myself annealing to
anybody for protection or for the hiding
of anything which has occured during
my legislative career, let me stale now
that l have no such fenrs. whether from
Gov. Sulzer, Mr. Ilennessy or any other
man in mis state,
"I think that some time ago, Mr. Presi
dent, u similar misstatement wuh made
In reference to my appearance before the
Governor, that I asked him to protect
mt. Now, I didn't make that request
then, nor do I now, I state to the mem
bers of this Senate that I have no fear
from anybody within the confines of this
Stute or any other State as to my career
In the legislative halls In the State of
New York.
"I Just simply call to the attention of
the mcrnliers of the Senate und the news
papers that this statement, not made di
rectly about me, but by Innuendo, that I
made an appeal, that I called yesterday
on the Governor to make a personal ap
peal to save me Is an absolute untruth."

to be retired permanently from his office
and that Gov. Glynn will finish out the

State departments, and no man In or out

Sulzer's friends say that all through

with Just a suspicion of a smile.
"Nobody back to-night," lie said to

Sulzer and Hlake walked down stairs

It was a day that differed greatly

Mr. WUl
The Governor's Wife Is Known
us a Wonderful Ilonic
ninkcr. Mis William Sulzer. who has become,
next to her husband, the Governor, the
most Interesting figure at Albany, Is
known among her friends as a simple, sin
cere, practical, resourceful woman.
Although the written record of her
comings and goings Is meagre, there Is
ample testimony to her worth and
strength of character In the words of the
many visitors who have frequented the
Sulzer home, in New York, In Washing
ton, and in "The. People's House," at
Mrs. Sulrer has always been first of
all a home maker. At the time of her
husband's election to the Governorship
the story was told of a great friend of
the Sulzers who went with his wife to
the home at 17," Second avenue for din
ner As the time for the serving of the
mill approached the friends noticed that
Mrs Stiller was extremely nervous. She
dlsappeated Into the kitchen, and finally
tho dinner was served, a tine meal, the
gueotM thought. It developed later that
a new maid had spoiled tbe original din
ner and that Mrs. Sulzer hud cooked a
new meal herself.
"What a wonderful thing to do," the
guests said,
"It's not wondeiful for her." Mr. Sulzer
replied. "She is a good wife and knows
bow to make a home."
The Governor's wife became famous as
a cook and hostess In Washington, where
splendid cooks and hostesses abound. The
small npartment In Bust Capitol street,
which the Sulzers refused to leave even
when the Congressman was mado chair
man of the Committee on Foreign Af
falls, was a popular meeting place for
their friends. Mrs. Sulzer Is still "head
cook" now that she Is the lady of "The
Peaple's House," and does not allow her
eight M'nants to usurp her prerogatives
in tile kitchen
Mis. Sulzer once said In Washington
to an Interviewer that she "belonged to
the school of women who believe In ac
tive service for the beiieilt of humanity."
She put this belief Into active practice
when she was onlv IS years old and still
Miss Clara llodelhelm of Philadelphia.

of Mount Slual Hospital. She was at the
New York Hospital In 1907 when she first
met William Sulzer. The Congressman
was Investigating the city hospitals with
a party of friends nnd It Is snld that hn
fell in love with Miss Hodelhelm at first
sight. The two were married secretly In
Atlantic City on January S. 190R.
Mrs. Sulzer has always been prompt to
show loyalty to her husband. Whenever
he has been accused she has declared that
she would "light as long as the Oovernor

Sulzer had never been defeated In a po

Short Form of Blanvelt-Vnn
Woert Election Bill U
Two Chanpe Votes on Hrnwn
Hill and Help Ignore
the Veto.
A1.SANT, Aug. 13. The Lcglstiii .
passed the short form of the Blaine i.
Van Woert elections bill over Gov. Sub
ser's veto to-day. This required a Hn.
thirds vote In the Senate and Assemblv.
It wa easily done In the Assembly, but
there was considerable scurrying snd
counting of noses In the Senate hefori
there was the desired result.
The bill now becomes a law as soon
as It Is Hied with the Secretary of State.
This Is the first bill which hss been
passed over the veto of a Governor In
some years. The Democrats Justified
their acts with the assertion that the
changes which the bill msde In up-Stato
counties would effect a saving of 760,n0rt
a year to the State. Gov. Sulzer etoed
these provisions three times In the last
two months, saying he would not ap
prove them unless he could get his direct
primary bill abolishing State party con
ventions along with them.
The Senate passed over Gov. Sulzer's
veto Senator Hrown's bill providing that
political party State committees shall
comprise 1G0 members, one from each As-

ernor's veto In the Assembly next week.
Attacked as Aid to Barnes.
The bill has been attacked on the
ground that as the bulk of the nepubll
can vote Is up 8tate It will Intrench
William Barnes, Jr.. as chairman of th
Itepubllcan State committee against any
fight which might be made on him by
Herbert Parsons, Samuel 8. Koenlg and
the Brooklyn Republican leaders. Like
criticism had been made against the bill
because Charles F. Murphy would like,
wise be Intrenched In power In the Demo
cratic State committee, as tho bulk of th
Democratic vote of the State is below The
Bronx. The members of the Democratic
State committee nre now chosen by
Senate districts, which number fUty-on.
while the members of the Republican
State commltteu are electe3 one from each
of the forty-three Congressional districts.
The Brown Mil had but thirty-three
votes In the efTort to pass It over he
Governor's veto, while thirty-four .iffirn-a

against the bill on the first roll call, ' i
he changed his vote. After this ih.ti.tr

The Assembly passed, despite the
ernor's veto, a hill originally favored '
the Governor abolishing toll bridges

by Senator Healey when the bill c.t .
up In the Senate and It was laid aside.
Senator Frawley Introduced a bill p" .
vlding for a direct State tax of slx-tem

revenues of the State nnd to meet i v
expenditures of the State In the nr
That was all the legislation attempted
by the Senate and Assembly to-day and
both houses adjourned until noon nr'
Tuesday, when the direct tax rate w I.
probably be passed.
This adjournment, howerver. was taken
so that tho Legislature can be on hand
to meet any emergency which may ane

Sulzer to surrender the office of Gov

Tuesday Night at the Phone.
Charles F. Murphy Is no doubt an adept
at long distance telephone conversations.
He sometimes talka as far as Alban
His adjutants there listen with singular
attention nnd follow directions with care
ful minuteness. But In these last days of
battle tho Murphy telephone has not don

On Tuesday night when the Tammam
forces were moving Into line against the
Governor Mr. Murphy did not reach out
with the long arm of the telephone 'o

of operations had been worked out on th

Seventeenth street Is another matter. He
left late, but long before the Tammanv
Assemblymen got down to the work of
Impeachment. Before he put out his
lights no doubt he knew precisely what
had been done.
He was still in town yesterday and
knew exactly what was happening 'n
Albany, but as for giving directions nnd
sending messages on swift errands n'
politics he did little of It To the mind
of Tammany the need of such devices be
speak weakness or at best a want o'
preparation. Kvents at Albany (.bowed
that neither was the case. Murphy knew
his lieutenants and however much
wanted Sulzer tn go he was suie tn.i
