OPENS WAR ' ON DEPEW NEW YORK LEGISLATOR OFFERS RESOLUTION ASKING SENA TOR'S RESIGNATION. d LATER WITHDRAWN: State Senator Brockett Stirs Upper i House to Lively Pitch By Doing V What He Declares an Act of Duty e to Public-Withdrawal of Resolution o In Deference to Minorty's Wishes. E [By Associated Press] Albany, N. Y., Jan. 3-The New York State legislature started off with a rush today. Aside from the reading in both houses of the annual message of the governor, the most important develop ments were the election of Speaker James W. Wadsworth, Jr., of Livings ton, thus finally closing one of the most sensational speakership cam paigns of recent years, and a long de bate in the senate over Senator Brack ett's resolution requesting the resig nation of Uunted States Senator Chauncey M. Depew, on the ground of disclosures in connection with the Equitable Life Assurance Society, which ended in Senator Brackett's withdrawal of the resolution for the time being. The debate on this reso lution attracted the utmost attention. Senators Raines, Malby and Cogge shell led the defense of Senator De pew, but joined Senator Brackett in the desire for prompt action upon the resignation. They eulogized the jun ior senator on the score of great pub lic service and urgently pleaded for the immediate defeat of the resolution. Senator Raines described Senator De pew as a sick man, and objected to any delay in the matter,, declaring that it was brutal to keep such a threat hanging over his head for even a week. The minority leader, Grady, said that the democrats were not prepared to act on such a proposition on so short notice and asked for a reason able time in which to confer as to their attitude. Senator Marks held that only a t careful study of the actual evidence taken in the insurance investigation rather than newspaper reports should be the basis of action in a matter of such great importance. Senator Brackett disclaimed any per sonal feeling against Senator Depew and declared that his resolution was in no way consequent upon his for mer opposition to Mr. Depew's re election as senator. He insisted that his act was prompted by a sense of public duty. In the end, however, he asked leave to withdraw his resolution. Senator n Raines objected to this, but the with - drawl was sustained by a vote of 27 to 19. It was not regarded as a test vote, several senators declaring that d they voted for the withdrawal only e out of courtesy to Senator Brackett t and the minority members, who asked e for time for due consideration of their Saction. SA report gained currency tonight 1- that Senator Brackett's action in n some way represented the wishes d of President Roosevelt. Senator !r Brackett wishes the Associated Press .e to contradict this rumor. ORDERLY AT SHANGHAI Normal Conditions Having Been Re stored Naval Guards at Foreign Con cessions are Reduced.
