WASlliNnTo.v, Oct. 2,. William Sillier may have been ousted from the Governor ship of New York State, but he still occupies his niche In Washington's well known Corcoran gallery of art. The Hul zer bust of bronze has been long a curiosity to visitors at the national capi tal, but never has It attracted so much attention its In the Inst few weeks. Some Inartistic souls cannot understand why the Impeached ilovemor of New York should have a place In this famous gallery along with Geoigc Washington, Charles Sumner, John C. Calhoun and other pa tilols long since dead and gone. liut the bust Is still tnere In Its niche In the Rieat nest room the disturbed hair, the broad, moist smile and the padded Ascot tie all I ( produced In Im perishable iirouze. Furthcrmoie. "the same old Hill" ap parently Is going to lemnln in the niche as long as he pleases. "It Isn't much of a woik of art," said Curator McOulrc to-day, "but It's n mighty line likeness and therefore I see small likelihood or Its being dlstuibed unless theie Is serious objection." The bronze of the retired Governor ha been In the Corcoran gallery for seeial J curs. It reposes on it mahoganv pedes tal upon which Is the Ircend: "William Sulzer, by Klmer llannau. Gift of scv. ' eral friends of the sculptor." I There is no designation as to who "the friends of the sculptor" weic, hut a suspicion prevails that Mr. Sulzer was one of the most liberal contributors of 1 the Rioup. 111 the west room Of the cnlterv tlirt ' Is tome extraordinarily good company for Mr. Sulzer. To the Immediate right of "the same old Bill" Is an oil painting of Charles Sumner, a Senator from Massa WHITMAN SPEAKS FOR FUSION TICKET Asks Republicans to Support It From Top to Bottom. District Attorney Whitman askeil the Republicans to stand by the fusion ticket at a meeting last night at the New Am sterdam Opera House on West Koity fourth street. The District Attorney was chairman of the meeting. He hasn't taken much of a hand in the campaign and his appearance last night wan the signal for a demonstration from his Re publican partisans. After he had Intro duced two or three speakers at the Forty-fourth street meeting Mr. Whit man went up. to The Bronx to address another meeting of fuslonlsts. The first meeting was arranged by George Wanmaker's followers in the Eleventh Assembly district. -Mr. Whit man's speech was aimed straight at the Republicans. "Perhaps no period In the whole his tory of New York." he said, "has been characterized by the beginning of so many Rlg.mtlc undertakings as have the last four jears, and no one will say that fusion has not made good. As citizens of New York you and I are interested to see that these gigantic things are carried forward to completion by the men who inaugurated them. "You members of the Republican oi Runlzatlon have fought the battle of good government oer and over again. We have supported the doctrfhe of unit parllanshlp In municipal affairs and have demonstrated that a party can lise above itself to the heights of non-partisanship." He asked the Republicans to be sure to support the fusion candidates for the Hoard of Aldermen. To do so. he said, would be for the great advantage of the city. He asked them to vote for the Re publican candidates for the Court of Ap peals. Judge Werner and Judge Hlscock. Ho spoke of Marcus M. Marks as the "right man for Horough President of Manhattan." Then he turned to John Purroy Mltchel and said that the Republicans should back him for the Mayoralty. . Comptroller Prendergast said that when the fuslonlsts got the reins of government four years ago they found the city depart ments In a state of great confusion. To correct the Inequalities of work and pay the fusion government started to work tii standardize salaries and occupation so that each employee of the city shall re ceive pay commensurate with' the work done, As for the economy Issue he said the fusion administration had been more economical than the previous Tammany regime. District Attorney Whitman also spoke at The Hronx Casino, Third avenue and 153d street. His appearance at the meeting was unheralded except for a slun outside the door. When he was Intro- I duced the 1,600 men who had packed themselves Into the place stood un and I cheered. The ovation lasted for three minutes. Then some one yelled "Whitman for Governor!" and that set them off again. Just as quiet was restored some one shouted, "Whitman for President!" When Mr. Whitman got a chance he said, "Why stop at that?" He Bpoke for the fusion ticket In The Bronx principally. He said the voters had a fine opportunity to start the Inde pendent career of the county hy electing the fusion ticket from top to bottom. He reviewed the qualifications of the candi dates and said he had no doubt that they would Justify any trust that mlKht be placed In them. TWO SOCIALIST MAYORS TALK.

Russell, who presided, dc. clared that the campaign of the fusion and Democratic parties in this city was one of such vituperation and abuse that he felt proud that he was the candidate for Governor of the Socialist party. He had been trying to find what the Issue between the fusion and Democratic parties Is, but as their leading spirits were, calling each other different U)ds of liars, he had not found out.

It H one of the most remarkable statues In the Corcoran col lection. The hands of the aged philoso pher grip tight on the arms of his huge Itoman sedlle. The coincidence In the arrangement of the figures is all the more amusing be cause Voltaire apparently Is looking at a small bronze animal ilosc at hand. The animal's head Is lifted tnwaid heaven. The Jaws are open, ns though emitting a wild cry of pain. The bronze Is entitled "The Howling Coyote." Hut Curator Melinite Is certain that the Voltaire has been looking fit the same spot since long before the impeachment proceedings began. GARMODY CONTRADICTS SULZER'S PRISON STORY Exposes Falsity of Charge That He Failed to Act in Graft Cases. Ai.bant, Oct. 27. In a statement isued to-night Attorney-Genera! Carmody sup Plenums th Intenlew printed In this morning's Sl'.v contradicting the accusa tions made by William Sulzer that Mr. Carmody declined to prosecute chaijte.i of graft In the construction of Great Meadow prison. .Mr. Carmodj's statement In part Is as follows : "The charges of graft In Great Meadow prison to which Gov. Sulzer refers all lelate to acts done In 1910 nnd early In 1911. The principal cbarKCS are for th presentation and audit of false claims, und ar made against the prison depart ment and the Stnte Architect's office. At that time C. V. Collins was Superintend ent of Prison" and Franklin II. Waic. State Aichltect, both Republican" "It would hac Iven my duty to ln es timate the charges had I been m mdered lv the Ooernor. The Attorney-General has no right or power to take up criminal Investigations of this charnctei except on orders of the Governoi "The order Is never Jntl:i"d except when theDlstrlct Attorney Is Incompetf nt o- Incapable. No charge was made ngalnst the District Attorney of WashlnKUw county ns being either Incompetent m in capable. "Gov. Sulzer ncer submitted to me either directly or Indirectly, orallj or in writing, evldenc" of any crime committed In ,ieference to Great Meadow prison When the matter was llrst mentioned theie was presented to my office and assigned to one of my deputies a ery general and Indefinite charge or Iriegularltle. That was never followed up by any evidence that would Justify the calling of n Grand Jury's attention to the case. Subsequently Mr. Warner was designated hy Gov. Sul zei to work with the Distilct Attorney of Washington county In Investigating the management of Great Meadow prison. As a result several Indictments were found. "It is absurd to discuss the lecless statement that I was called ofT by any body from this" Investigation, when I never had any authority to conduct It. 1 fie quently told Gov. Sulzer and Mr. Hen nessy that I would not permit the otllce of the Attorney-General to be used for the purpose of prosecuting Innocent men, or to make political capital or sensational headlines for news. I did state to them lepealrdly that the office of the Attorney General was ready and open to tal; up any charges against anybody nnywhete when proper authority was given me to act and there were any reasonable grounds upon which to proceed." SCANDAL HINTSTTRS MITCHEL. Wants III Answer Printed on Day of Uapected Charges. John Purroy Mltchel read a political advertisement In several of the news papers yesterday which announced that something would be told to show that Mltrhel's record Is not spotless. Thli causeil Mr. Mltchel to wrltu to the editors of the newspapers asking that his answer be printed in the same Issues which contain the charges. This Is his letter: "I note In an advertisement In at least two newspapers this morning the follow ing: " 'There Is time furthermore to show to New York another fallen Idol com parable even to the pitiable Sulzer. It Is an exposure also which will cause regret, for Mr, Mltchel, like Sulzer, has fooled many people for quite a while. This exposure will show that Mr. Mltchel'e. candidacy Is as great an example of ef frontery, as much of an Insult to the Intelligence an. honor of the people as the Progressive party's nomination of Will lam Suiter Hulxer, now written down as one who filched money from his trust ing friends, who perjured himself con cerning the campaign contribution pub licity which he has so long pretended to advocate and who will put an In effaceable stain of shame upon the great est of commonwealths.' "I have nothing In my private or pub lic life which 1' wish to conceal and I request an opportunity to answer any attack upon me In the same Issue In which you publish the same. 'The last week of the campaign haa begun and It It fair, I submit, that I have this opportunity."

Stllwll, Issued .1 stiitement last night after a conference eailler In the day with his client In Sing Sing, attacking John A. Henness.v's version of what was said In an Interview between Mr. Stllwell and Mr. llennessy. Mr. McClelland asserted thnt Instead of having a live hour talk, as Mr. llennessy bald, Ihe fusion orator talked with Stll well for only twenty minutes Ir. the vv anien's office. Mr. McClelland quotes Mllwell as say ing that llennessy and l.ynn Arnold it different times offered htm ft pardon If he would make statements to District At torney Whitman Involving Charles I". Muiphy, Senator Foley and Aaron J, Ievy. Stllivfll says, according to the lavvve1-, that llennessy announced that he wanted lo "get even" with the four men and that Lynn Arnold called him a " Ilai" when Stllwell said he knew nothing ileiogatory to those men Here Is Ml. McClelland's statement: "The appeal In the case of People Hg.lnt Stephen .1. Stllwell. foimetly a State Senator, from the Judgment, Is now pending In the Appellate Division and 1 anticipate being piepared to argue it next week. However, before argu ment 1 thought it was lietter to have a final conference with the appellant, Mr. Stllwell, and accordingly I visited him at prison this morning for the purpose of Interviewing him on that subject and other matteis. "1 had noticed In Tin: Kvenino Sl'.v n statement of n patty by the name -if llennessy, that he contemplated giving the details of an alleged interview and confession with Mr. Stllwell some few months ago when he visited him In prison, that said Interview had lasted live houis. After conferring upon the subject of the argument on appeal 1 culled Mr. Mll well's attention to this statement of Hennessy. "He said that all statements as claimed that he made implicating anybody, of ficially or otherwise, for violations of the law were fictions and untrue: that the Interview too) place in the offlee of the warden, and the Interview did not last longer than twenty or twenty-five minutes. "He stated that Hennessy assured him that he had a pardon already granted by (iov. Sulzer and that If he would do what they wanted him to do and make statements Involving public, officials he could have the benefit of that pardon. Stllwell says that he Informed him that he had no knowledge Implicating or In volving any one. Hennessy then sug gested to him that they would take him right from the prison down to the District Attorney of New York, and that If he would make statements Involving Murphy, Frawley and Levy that they wanted he need not come back to the prison. "llennessy further stated that they wanted to get even with these people and were going to get even anyway. The Interview on that subject was a pointed and emphatic denial of any' Intimation or any suggestion. He further said that he realised fully that he probably could have obtained his freedom If he chose to have done this, but that he positively refused to da It. "This Interview was supplemented by another Interview with a man named Lyon J, Arnold, who visited him and re newed the assurances that Hennessy had made of a pardon, from the Oovernor If he would Involve the enemies of Gov. Milter. .. "Arnold cajne to him and said : 'Now come over with this stuff.' Stllwell says that he knew nothing about anybody PROGRAMME Ballad in F.

Manhattan Ladies' Quartette Accompanied by the Pianola WEBER PIANOLA USED The AEOLIAN COMPANY 4and Street West except what was common report and this so Incensed Arnold that he turned and called him a liar. "Stllwell leplled: 'I won't talk with you any more. I am in piison and you must talk to the walls. I can not resent It.' "For days I tried to get this Informa tion In the press tn this city and would give it to reporters, and It was laid aside, but finally it came out In one nf the Sunday articles In The New Yonic SrN, In which I stated substantially what oc curred between Stllwell nnd Arnold. "My opinion now Is that It was to t carried so far that first they wanted to get the so-called confession from Stllwell and then were not able to do thai, and they did plan or contemplate the provok ing or Stllwell to violence by this foul flinuthed abuse. "The result of that Interview was an fntervlew by Arnold with the press In which Arnold finally said that there was no confession made. This method of procedure Is In keeping with that which was followed by Gov Sulzer In his In terview in the Kxecutlvv Mansion or the People's House with Judge Whitman, who had stopped over night at his house with him. "Judge Whitman In an Interview given out was at a loss to understand why Gov. Sulzer sent for him. In the con versation they had the night before he evidently did not see any point to the visit and he said he had to leave early In the morning anil then It was that Gov Sulzer said to Judge Whitman, 'Why don't you Indict Murphy"' Judse Whit man said, 'I cannot Indict Murph, I have no evidence." Gov, Sulzer then said. Indict him any way. Indict him on general principles.'
