THE SUN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1918. ; Murphy Speaks Sulzer Attacks Hennessy Dares McCall lb night of I'Vbninry when the Onv crnnr rnnir to New York to urge Judge Mc 'a1l to hike- tho chairmanship of the) Pub IU' .Service! Oomrnlietilon. Mr. Murphy fays that li ashed lit that time that the Governor appoint John 1-'. Ualvlti. Tho tlovernor then KUgKcMcel Judge Mct'aH' inline nnd Mr. Murphy objected to the gimitnl that' .luUtte McVull's picfcrcnce was for hire plucu un the bench mill lie should not be licked to take mi executive Job ngaltmt ' his will. After repeated nvuent .from tli eiovernor Judgo McCall aserntort. At no lime, nays Mr. Murphy, were thu names of Henry Morgunthau, (Seorge Fob tee I'caboely or John Temple t) raven men- tloned. ThvKH were) tho men who Suiter 'declared were his personal choice. As for thu chariie that Murphy hail do- . nianded of Hulzer tho appointment of Hcorgo M. rainier, chairman of thee Demo- ' eratli! Stalev Committee, to tho up-gtato t'ubllo Service) Commission, Murphy says that .Sulzer told him that ho himself prom- 'lnrd it to Palmer after the Htata conven- , tion at Hyraeuso at which Suiter was nominated for Governor, lie never asked Sulier lo ulvo places to MoCnbo, McMatius or James li Ouffney, nor did he ever say or fend word to the Governor that "It lH Ouffney or war." The only place In which Mr. Murphy mentions .Indite. Mr-Call's name, aside from 'his narrative of the Judso's selection for the chairmanship of tho Public Service .Commission, was In refutation of Suiter's and Hennessy'n repeated charges that .fudge McCall was Murphy's messenger . boy. Tho Judge never wentot Albany to see Suiter ut Murphy's request, nor did he ever bear a message, from Murphy to the Governor. Mr. Mm phy ald : Ask Why Wan Nnlxer Afraid. "The fetles of allrKRtions made by .Mr. Suiter In uu evening paper some days hbo would have deserved prompt and serious attention had they been mado under oath, either before the Legislative investigating committee or before the court of Impeachment. "Coming as they do after Mr. Suiter's , conviction for perjury by the highest court In the State, by tho significant vote of forty-three to twelve, fair minded and honest men will question the truth of these ehargis. "if .Mr. Suiter's recent statements are true, why was ho afraid to face the high court of impeachment and there make ' them under oath on the witness stand" . I was willing to appear. He declined to appear, lie fen i d to go himself, but he begged other men to testify and per jure themselves for him. t'p to the very il.e the court convened hu promised to ;.o b"foie the couit and expose me. lie failed to do so. "ICven after the rasp was cloed and Ihe members ot the court vt re In con ference the proxevutlnn cnne-eiited to re open the ims If Mr. Sulzer would testify, Mill William Suiter refused to face thy court. Wli) ? Hecause he knew he would convltt himself. Tries to Arouse Prejudice." "The fact tenia Ins that William Suiter was convicted of perjuiy and lemoved fiom oltice by the highest court In this State. The Vote to remove lilm consisted nf eight Judges of thu Court of Appeals and thlrtjtlve Senators. Four of the Judges am! eleven of the Senators are Hcpubllcans "Mr. Suiter tries to arouse prejudice by publicly afei'lng that the colemn verdict rendered by the highest court In the Stale was due to my intluorice. The fact Is that the only man responsible for the dis grace and downfall of Gov. Suiter Is William Suiter himself. ' "He says that in December at D?l-mo.-leei'.s 1 offered him mono;- to pay his debts, Arc This Is an Infamous falsehood. I never otfered him a dollar in my life. I ntver knov h" vvus In debt. I saw hlin often at IMnumlco , but never alone. He claims that at the Presidential let tors meeting In Albany I saw him In tho I'.xeetitlvi' Mansion and Invited him to my hotel for a conference. This Is untrue. 1 never utkvd him tc my room or to .in oilier place for a e-onfei cnc.

"I did un ot him on that date and talked about a man for the i-imUIoh. I submitted the r.amo of Mr, Galvln, which the Gov ernor opposed, stating that Mr. llearrt would ;iot stand for any of Mayor Gay lior's ctimmlssiiinerH, Then 'the Governor Mihmlttcd Judge .Md'all's name. I said J would not advise Judge Mci'all to ac icpt tin- place, that I thought his position on the bench a bettei one for him, as it was In the line of his profession. "Judge Mci'all did not want to tain the place, but after much urging b.v the Governor he agieeri to accept. Neither at this Interview nor at any other were the names of Mr. Morgcnthuu, Mr. Pea body or Mr. Graves evei mentioned by Gov. Suiter for that position. "Mr. Sulzer states that at this meeting 1 demanded pledges regarding legislation and appointments; that 1 insisted on thn appointment of George M, Palmer and P. E. McCahe as members of the Second District Public Service Commission; that 1 urged the naming of T. J. McMnnus for lnbor Commissioner, a Mr. Meyers for State Architect, a man from llrooklyn for Hnspltnl Commissioner and Jnmea K. tiaffney for Highway Commissioner. "As a matter of fact we did not talk about legislation. As to the appointments to tho Second District Public Service Com mission the Governor said that Mr. Pal mer was an old friend ; that at Syra cuse, after his nomination, ho promised to mnkn him chairman of the commission. He said he intended appointing some man from HulTalo for tho other position on the commission. Wc discussed no other posi tions or appointments at all. "I did not then, or at any other time, directly or Indirectly, recommend for any position the numes ot Messrs. McManui, Meyers, Gaffney or the unnamed man from Brooklyn. Denies "GasTner er War." "Mr. Suiter refers to the Washington conference on March 6 and saya that I followed him Into the hall as ho was leaving and mentioned Mr. Gaffney, and that I Bald: It will be Uaffney or war.' I denied this In a statement months ago. At that time Hulzer told thn newspapers a mutual friend eorrlcd the message from met 'It will b Gaffney or war.' It will be remembered that I challenged Suiter to name the. bearer of the alleged message. Ho hau failed to do so. "The expression, 'It will be Oaffnny or war, was coined by Hulzer himself. His own statement proves he Is lying. For In one port he claims that I told him It would b Gaffney or war,' while In nnother place ho says somebody else told him. "Mr. Sulzer say there was a confer ence on March 18, that I was Indignant ut the removal of Mr. Scott, tho Superin tendent of Prisons, Uiat ho proposed the appointment of John Mitchell as Labor Commlslsoncr and that I opposed It ami Insisted on Mr, McMatnw.

Tills Is absolutely false. Neither Mr. Illake nor tho subject of prisons was mentioned at nil. Mr Illake did not begin his prison Investigations until nfter the meeting referred lo. "Mr, Suiter assrrtn that I often sent emissaries to demand that ho do certain things and to threaten hint If he refused. He claims that Judge McCall was one of the emissaries. Didn't fend McCall.

"He sajs that at a conference in my home on April 13 ho requested mo not to Interfere with the trial of Stllwell In tho Senate and claims that 1 said I would stand by StllwelL This is an Infamous lie. Stllwell's name was not mentioned. "Mr. Suiter came to my house nfter midnight. He requested the conference over the telephone. When ho came in he began at once to asure mo that ho was my best friend and asked me not to take hl streeches eerlously, He talked aliout his direct primary bill anil said It would strengthen and not weaken the organization.

"He jlli'ges that one day in June I sent a prominent man to tin eaten him with Impeachment unless ho stopped his oppo sition to me and called off Mr. Hennessy from his Investigation. Tills is another f.ilehood. No such message was cai rled from me. "Mr, Suiter says that on March IS ha gave an Interview on direct primaries which I considered a declaration of war. He states that I called a meeting of m lieutenants nt Ielnionlco's on May 2". and that vv decided to remove him from office. Thl Is another Suiter Invention.

On the following day Judge Ileardsley came to my hou.se and said that ho had telephoned Mr Suited to the iffect tlist he had a contribution for him of $23,000 from A. N. Hrady. He said that Mr. Sui ter directed hlin to leave It with me I asked him why the tlovernor did not agree to lake It himself. The Judge said he didn't know, but that that was what Mr Suiter said. He left the money with me. After Judge Ileardsley left me I thought the mailer over.and concluded to return the money The next day I sent a message to Mr. Hrady requ sting him to call at Drlmunleo's on Ills way home. He came the following day and I told hlin what .luiU'e Ile.irdr-ley had t,id about his talk with the Governor on the telephone and of the hitter's direction to leave Ihe muney with ine, I thanked Mr. Hrady for his contribution, said 1 would not ncccpt It and I returned hltn the $25,010, deferring to Suuet s latest story that he sent me the $10,000 he gut from Allan It) an, I never received that money. This Is another one of his falsehoods If he really sent the money It never reached me. He knows he tells an untruth when he says that 1 told him to collect money from piomlnent people and corporations. He- cent events show that he needed no such advice." CHOKER BACKS UP HENNESSY. naya Ills Version nf Talk With Sen tor Frawley la Accurate. Kdvvaid I'roker, formi r Fire Chief, said yestetrday that John A. Henness.v had given a correct version of a conversation which Chief t'roker had with Senator Frawley concerning the Impeachment of Gov. Suiter. Hennessy said in his speech Saturday night that i'roker had said to Senatni Frawley . Do you really mean to Impeach Suiter? Do you Intend to go through with this business?" Hennessy then quoted Krnwley as re plying: 'Of course we do. If we don t he will end ns all to Jill, It Is his llfo or ours." After looking over Hennessy s speech Croker said : "Every word that Is there is true," Chief Croker explained that the con- vernation quoted by Hennessy tool; place at the Iiong lle.ich railroad station, where he and Senntnr Frawley happened to meet.

WILD FOR SULZER I.i'iiilcr of Kits! Sidt' People Climbs Into Auto and Make Fiery Speet'li. IM.rXKITT NOW I XDKIt Kl KB Kx-(iovei'iior Replies to Allan A. K.van anil Repeats Ques tions to Mttrphv. William Halter, rampalxuing thtough the Sixth Assembly district last night, got the biggest reception he has had yet when a woman' known lo all the Kait Side made a fervent appeal for his election and a bitter attack on Charles P. Murphy and Tammany Hall. The Incident occurred at the close of the evening when Mr. Suiter and his fel low campaigners weie riding through crowded streets for supper in an East Side coffee house. At Sixth street and Avenue O a woman pushed through the throng about the car and spoke to the ex Governor. He helped her In and then stood her on thu seat while he Introduced her as Mrs. Qttterman, daughter of .Simon Stearns, a lawyer who fought Tammany for many )ears. "Whatever may have been William Sul ter's conduct," she cried when Mr. Suiter had persuaded thu crowd to stop cheering so she could apeak, "we of the iSast Side know that he has never broken faith with us. Kike Ca?sar. when thu poor hath cried. Suiter hath wept." There was a great cheer at that and then she went on to tell her hearers that they should send Suiter back to Albany. "Suiter and Hennessy have the goods on Murphy and McCall," aha cried. "If )ou are men you will elect Suiter and re turn him to carry Sti tho good fight at Al bany. And do not forget that It la about time we had a man like him In the White House." Following this Rabbi Jacob Levlnson of Albany sprang up 'beside Mr dltterman and assailed Aaron J. lcvy, whom ha characterlted as"a disgrace to the land of Israel." flulsrr Attacks I'lonUltt. Mr. Suiter set up a new target last night for his verbal shots and delighted some big crowds with nn attack on ex Senator George Washington Plunkltt. Ha coupled Mr. Plunkltt'a name with that of Charles F. Murphy and alao gave notlca that he Intends to Investigate the cam paign statement filed last fall by the Democratic State committee. Mr. Suiter's principal speech was mad In Hennlngton Hall, Second street near Avenue U. There an Immense crowd awaited him In the street and he had. to speak to them before they would let him out of his automobile. He had supposed when he started out that he was to make four addresses last night, but after ad vance copies on all of them had been given to the newspapers It was discovered that the candidate was billed for only one appearance. However, he did make an other speech, this one In Hamilton Fish Park, where he went on his own arrange ments and where a big Impromptu audi ence gathered. At Hennlngton Hall Mr. Hulser first went over what he gives as the reasons for his Impeachment. He predicted that Taniiniiy Hall would be badly beaten on election day and said thit after that occasion "lloss Murphy rind his followers will be found while the woodbine twlnfth and where the whangdoodle calleth for lta mste." Then he continued: "The 'Chief nnd his wax figures In the high lourt said that my campaign state ment last year was erroneous. It was testified and not contradicted that I did not make up that campaign statement. That I did not read it. That 1 asked if it was coriect That I was told it was as correct as It could be made, and then I signed It. That Is all I had to do with it. and 1 have not seen the statement from that day to this. "Mr Murphy knew more about that campaign statement than I did, because the men he had planted in my office from the time 1 was nominated until I went to Albany knew everything that wua going on and kept Mr. Murphy -well advised. "They bjv Mr. Murphy took a leading part In mitklng up the statement last fall of the State committee. I want to ask him If the statement of the State com mittee Is correct. Ho knows all about It. Let him tell. "I hav notified the Secretary of State not to let that campaign statement get out of his otllce. Mr. Murphy threatened m about my campaign statement and In timated that It would disappear fiom the tiles of the Secretary of State If 1 would take oiilers, Of course 1 refused to be a part) to such an Iniquity. Knowing what I do I hope the campaign statement of the Slate committee will not disappear. At all events I have a certified copy of it. They say Mr. Murphy put a lot of dum mies In that 'statement as contributors who never contributed a dollar. How about that. Mr. Murphy ' Hot Shot for Plankltt. "Among those names as contributors to the Democratic State committee la the name of one George W. Plunkltt for the sum of $5,000. This Is Tightwad Plun kltt, otherwise known as Honest Graft Plunkltt. I am advised he did not con tribute a dollar. Why was his name put on the statement of the State committee for $n,000. They tell me Tightwad Plunkltt would not give $5 to save the Deniociutlc party fiom the demnltlon bowwows. If he did contribute this mono) let Plunkltt say so and tell where he got It. Has he a receipt for It? Did he pay It In cash or by check'.' Can he produce the check? Will Ills bank account show that he drew the money out In cash? Let Plunkltt tell about It. I sen he Is getting his name In the newspapers. Let Murphy tell about It. Plunkltt and Murphy know. This Is only one case , There are others, Repeals Questions ta Marnhy. "Again I ink Mr Murphy. "They say ou have made $10,000,000 since you ham been fder of Tammany Hall. Where did you gel It? "What did you do with the $2S,000 Mr. Brady offered me, thiough his counsel, Samuel A. Ileardsley, which I tefused to accept and which ou accepted? "What did you do with the llo.inni Al ton Hyatt sent mo and which I sent to you and which ou admitted to me )ou received? "Who put the name of George W. Plunkltt as a contributor of f.Vimn on the olMcl.il statement of the State com mittee? Did Plunkltt give the money, jr was he a dummy? You know. "Now, Mi. Murphy, when ou answer truthfully these qtustlbns I will ask j mi a few mote, and I know and ,vou know I know, 'Tlie only reason I am talking about Plunkltt now Is because Plunkltt Is get ting In the limelight contradicting Mi. Hennessy, and I know, and I'luiiki'.t knows, that llennesf)' Is telling thu truth." At Hamilton Flfh Park Mr Suiter de voted his time to paying a tribute to tho Jewish race and lo another attack on the court of Impeachment, Charles F. Murphy I and the Tammany camp In general. He did not, ,ib had been expected, talk about former Senator Stephen J, Stllwell's confession, though some of the spell binders who accompanied him weijt into that subject somewhat. At Hennlngton Hall David Goldstein, Progressive candidate for munlclii.il court Judge against Aurou J. Lev), spoke and got a warm reception. Other speakers attacked Levy and Mi. Suiter himself predicted Ihe defeat of the man who headed the boatd nf Impeachment man agers. Mealies to Ityan Statement. Mr. Suiter denied yesterday Allan Kyan's answer to the former Governor's story of Saturday night that the lO.iiOO of Ityati money was turned over to Cltarles F. Murphy. He called Ityati a liar and said. "I see by the papers that K.van calls me a liar. That's natural. However, if one will rftid my statement In connection with Kyan'o It will appear that Ityan substantially corroborates all I said. "The Mudcmt nf publtc affair- will wonder whether llyan w.is a plant of Murphy's and whether Murphy used hlni to get something on me for the purpose of controlling nie after I became Gov ernor. At all events Murphy and llyun understood exactly what was being dotio whether I did or not and It turned out that when the time came and I refused to do what they wanted they used the Information they had to my disadvantage. It la the old, old story and a lesson to me 1 ahall never forget. "I am dons with the Ityans and Mur phya. They thought they could mak me their tool, but they were mistaken. William Suiter never was a tool for any man. "Murphy and Ityan are. as close as two peas In n pod. The understand each other and they work together, not for the gen eral welfare, but for their own selfish Interests. If Mr. Ityan Is wise ho had better mop lying about m e if he hopes to elect his candidate, one Kd McCall of Tammany Hall." HENNESSY BURDEN DODGED BY MITCHEL Xo More Responsibility for II im Than for Sulzer, He Declares. John Purroy Mitchel dodged responsi bility yesterday for John A. Hennessy and anything he may say on the stump. While Mr. Mltchrl didn't seem to be piqued by an) thing that Hennessy has said he declared that he hadn't read much of his outpouring. Mr. Mitchel professed to be quite in the dark as to what con nection Hennessy has with the fusion committee and assured Inquirers that he had "no more responsibility for hlin than for Suiter." "And as much, Mr. Mitchel'"' he was asked. "Yes. as much," he said. Fusion headquarters was aglow with pleasure )esterilay afternoon when the news was brought In that Hennessy had made any sort of a response to Judge McCall's dare to put In writlt'g the charges he had made on the stump. It didn't seem to percolate that Hennessy hadn't met the point which Judge McCall definitely put beforo him. The fusion leaders assured callers that a reply was a reply, and that was all there was to It. Mr. Mitchel stopped for a talk with some of his friends Just before he went out to make his evening round of speeches. The talk turned to Hennessy. "Mr. Mitchel," he was asked, "just what Is Hennessy's connection with the fusion committee?" "Hennessy's connection here"" In- ie peated. "Hennessy has no connection here, has lie, Mills"" He called for ugden L. Mills, who Is the malinger of his per sonal ctunpulKn. "Mills, what Is Hen nessy's connection with the luslon com mittee?" "Henness.v speaks for the fusion lom mlltee," said Mr. Mills. "He has no con nection with these headquarters, except as n speaker.'' AuuDiri Their Accuracy, Mr Mitchel was nuked what hi thought of the Hennessy statements, and whether in the face of affidavits and contradictions they still seemed to him to be true. "I haven't read all that he lias said," Mr. Mitchel replied. "J have read only thn headlines and occasional paragraphs. As for their accuracy I assume that Mr. Hennessy Is able to take care of his own statements." "Then )ou assume no responsibility for them'.'" "None." Mr Mitchel was asked what advantage he thought his candidacy was getting from the Hennessy statements and what Itnpres. slon of truth they made on his mind. "li'pon my word," he said, "I don't know what advantage they are doing this campaign. Ah to the questions alsiut their truthfulness or thu reverse, 1 don't know that they are fnlse, I have not read tho statements." "What responsibility do vou take for .Suiter?" lie waa asked. "No mote than for Hennessy." "Hut as much?" "As much. Well, Hennessy speaks on fusion platforms, I nm told, Hut as to his connections you will have to ask downstairs." Kohert Adamhou, manager of tho luslon campaign, said that Hennessy was only a "fusion volunteer." "Ills only connection with us Is the same as that of any one of the whole, army of speakers wo have out there," he said. Mr. Adatnson addid that Hennessy1 wasn't paid by the fusion committee Calls School L'bnrare nanconibr. j Mr. Mitchel was asked about the point that Judge McCall had raised about the llanus and Moore school reports. Judge McCall had asked who Mltchel's real ovet seer was In the school Inquiry. I "Oil," said Mr, Mitchel, "I supposn Judgii McCall was raising the point about pour Allen. It's pure buncombe, Mr. Mci'all Is merely trying to parrot the complaint made by a disgruntled I mean, by Dr. llanus, In the heat of the school Inquiry. There's no use raising any questions aho'it the school Inquiry, It stands on U.x own bottom." "Poor Allen" whs Ideiitltled us Utllmiu H. Allen, director of the Uuicau ut Mi,, avtcisai iieae&rch. HENNESSY DARES Hints al Sinn' Sins: if Jinlye ilriiiirs Witnesses Into Court. STII.WKU IX A 1,LrK HOOK Siivs It Contains Petec laphone Confession. Wliieh He Will Keatl Tn-ni-lit. John A. Hennessy carried around HhiIciii last night a black book which lie said was a icrord of a talk he bad with ex Senator Stephen J. Stllwell in Slim Slug. Mr, lleltness) spoke at two meet ings, but did not keep his promise to tell what was In the black book. Hu said ho deferred that because he wanted 10 devote one more night to "answering" Judge McCall. The strain of the campaign seemed to have affected his vocabulary. "Dirty llttlo rat" was one of his phrases, which h said he had applied to Senator Itobert I-' Wagner In a conveisatlon with Mr. McCall. Kveii a manifestly sympathetic audience ill Lexington Hull In East 116th street diil not applaud when he spoke of Judge McCall as "tho meanest, most con temptible, most Ignorant and most Il literate candidate ever nominated In my time for Mayor of New York." For Ihe first tlnv in bis recent speeches Mr. Hennessy failed lo charge Judge Mci'all, even lv innuendo, with having bought his Judicial nomination. He did, however, challengo Mr. McCall to meet him this afternoon at 1 o'clock and serve? him with papers In a "libel suit for dam ages." "Mv answer wilt be Justification." Mr. Hennessy declaimed, "but you bet your sweet life he won't sue me, because of his fatuous belief that he has a living chance for election. Court's Criminal Action. "If lie will only sue tnu criminally and biing forward the two persons who made iitlldavlts foi him 1 will ste that If he takes the stand and they take the stand they will be Indicted for perjury, and wo will do tin- best we can to send thiin to Sing Sing. 1 will prove the facts Inside his own otllce as well hs outside. If he ever dares to go on with a crim inal libel suit I will make him fly the town If he Isn't convicted." Mr. Hetitiesy had to take a largo drink of water to clear his throat after this proclamation. Ills "dlscloMiri's" last night included nn nsserllon that Mr. McCall told hlin that if William Suiter would stop light ing Murphy be could have a nomination for the Pulled States Senate next year; that tho campaign contributions unre ported bv Tammany Hall last year amounted lo $30t,nnn; that highway con tractois had been blackmailed out of $100,000 and that Mr. McCall had quoted Murphy as speaking disparagingly of Senator James J. Krawlcy. Anticipating Charles F. Murphy's state ment of last night, which he had not seen, Mr Hennessy said he would tell Mr. Murphy In advance that he would compel him lo make another statement "or be the laughing stock of New York on the question of moneys he has grabbed off. And I think I will catch one of his rela tives before the campaign li over." He said he had no personal feeling against Mr. Murphy, for the Tammany leader had bought him a cocktail the last time he was In flood Ground llelci'tairtione on Sttlvrell, l.eiitgton Hull, where Mr. Hennussy spoke first, was so crowded that he could hardly get In. Holding up his black honk, Mr Hennessy explained why he could not tell his Stllwell story and said "Lest anybody night doubt my word .igalnl Senator Stilwell's, we had the newest machine working ut Sing Sing, called tho detnt.iphone It was put In by tho William .1. Hums agency and It was superintended b.v Kdward J Smith, and vve had a very tine stenographer at the other end of that machine and th w hole subject was a complete success." He promised to talk about Stllwell to night. Ills principal grievance of the moment against Judge MrCall seemed to be that Mr. McCalt had waited five days before replying to his nccusutlons. "What would Abram S. Hewitt, Will inm ll. Uracil or Kdward M. Shepard have done?" he demanded. "Why, none of those three great Democrats ever had a guilty conscience, bo they would have answered me tight away. Why didn't Me Call answer" lie was probably waiting to frame up a situation that would keep Inspector McLaughlin, at least until after lection. II.' wanted to be sure that If lie did answer me he would not be ills, graced and sent against the wall before oti had n chance to vote for him. What a iiivvaiilly, pitiable, spectacle '." Un spoko of Mr. McCall as "this dis tinguished jut 1st for twelve years, pre. vloits to that a distinguished ally of the notorious Insurance lobbyist In Albany named lluckley." Ho said that Henry Morgeiithaii. (Jeorge Foster Peabody, Ed ward F. Croker and Thomas Mott Osborne had cotrobnrntrd what he had said In his speeches concerning them, whllo Mr. .McCall had been corroborated by fleorgn Washington Plunkltt and Mr. Murphy.

It was also at this Public Service Com mission meeting that Mr, Hennessy said to Judge .McCall according to himself that Senator Wagner "Is a dirty llttli! rat." "f said to Judge McCall," declared Mr lleiuicssy, " that fellow told Judge Ileardsley something coming In on the train fiom Ouogue. When a man at tempts In an underground way to assail ine to a man who he doesn't think knows me my opinion of hlin is that he is n dirty llttlo rat. I will get hltn whether It takes a week or a month or a year or two years, and 1 think It will take less,' "I wonder If McCall remembers that. I said that a mun like Wagner who would make a statement of that kind without bavins knowiedgo as to thu facts would carry down dirty stories lo Murphy tiotit Suiter, so that he could get Murphy's wing and some day obtain a Judgeship.'' Pas Respects to Frawley. The crowd seemed somewhat isittled as to how Senator Wagner came to be dragged Into the speech, but Mr, Hen nessy went ahead and said that ho and Mr. McCall also talked about Senator Frawley. Ho iiuoted Mr. McCall in hav ing observed: "Murphy doesn't cam much what happens to Frawley," und that Mr. Hennessy had said to Mr. McOall : "1 heard Frawley tell Gov. Suiter that Mur phy had a million enemies In New York, but the time to assemble them was not then, but some time later." Then, according to Mr. Hennessv, Mr. McCall told him that .Murphy had retired Frawley from the State committee, had prevented him from being made chairman of the Panama commission and would not have let him be renominated for Sen ator except for tho Intercession of Frank Farrell. Tom Foley and Timothy D. Sul livan. Mr. Henness.v wanted to know why Mr. Murphy hadn't got an allldavit from James Stewart, the canal contractor, to prove that Hennessy had lied when he said that Stewart had given up $3.",, 000. If tiov, Glynn would call an extraordinary Grand Jury nnd head the prosecution with a lawyer not connected with tho Attorney General's oltlco Mr. Hennessy said It could bo proved that Stewart gave up $33,000 and Hennessy would produce tho man who got 125.000 in bills. The speaker withdrew his assertion of last week that the Itarrett Manufacturing Company bad given up ?5,0o(, although he said that he got his Information from a man who himself contributed 15,000. As to the nithullthlu Paving Company. Mr. Hennessy said it not only contributed ?j,000, but "also contributed money to brlbo tho officials of the State." "I say to the electors of New York " Mr. Hennessy shouted, "that I am repnn slide for tho statements I mako and that every concern and every man 1 name, with the exception of the Uarutt Manu facturing Company, paid their money either to Norman E. Mack or to J Sar geant Cram or to McLe.ui or to Fowler " Says Money Poured la. He said money came In so f..M fiorn corporations which could not affonl i be idetitltieil as contributors that Murpny sent Jo.OOn down to Dig Tom Foley nnd said. "Honor some of tho fellows In tho district by having them subscilbo this."
