VOLUME XXXXJtl__ BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1913 • 12 PAULS NUMBER 137 SULZER LOSES FIRST BRUSH BEFORE IMPEACHMENT COURT —.. .. Challenges of Four Senators Over ruled—Counsel Wants to Dismiss Proceedings, But Fail to Co mplete Argument Before the Acljourn A ment Until Next Monday SULZER TURNS OVER HIS OFFICE TO GLYNN Formally Concedes That He Has No Right to Exercise Func tions of Chief Executive Pending Result of Impeachment Proceedings—Assembly Unable to Bring Additional Charges Against Sulzer Adjourns Until Thursday Albany, New York, September 19. Counsel for William Snlzer lost the first skirmish in a legal battle they began today, at the second session of the high court of impeachment, to pre vent the accused executive from coming to trial. Their objec tions to permitting four senators to sit as members of the court were overruled. They next attacked the validity of the impeachment with s motion to dismiss the proceedings, but failure to complete their argument when adjournment was taken until Monday pre cluded a decision in the matter. Meanwhile Governor Sulzer for mally conceded that he had no right to exercise the functions »of' chief executive pending the termniation of the impeachment. This he did in a letter to Lieutenant Governor Glynn turning over to the latter a request for the extradition of a prisoner and explaining he had taken such action because of recent decisions of the supreme court that the “executive functions should be performed by yourself as acting governor.” f ASSEMBLY ADJOURNS UNTIL THURSDAY Alter striving futileiy from noon until 7:20 o’clock tonight to obtain enough antl Hulzer votes to insure the passage of additional impeachment charges, Majority Leader Levy moved that tlie assembly recess until next Thursday. The motion was adopted amid shouts of joy and mem bers who had been imprisoned in the chamber for hours dashed for trains and ' thdr homes. *4it makiTtr ti.e motion An u re^pes Mr. ' Levy explained that the Senate had ad ^ Jourped until the same day and that even if tin- board of managers pul additional charges thro ugh the assembly tonight the ' ...old not be notified Immediately. He made an urgent plea for a full attend ance next Thursday. The fight for addi tional charges will he resumed immedi ately on the convening of the assembly and mcamvhtle the democratic leaders will use every means to obtain a full at tendance. It is generally understood that the charges were completed today. The three chief allegations are. It is said, that the governor usurped the powers of his office following his impeachment, made a pi e-election promise to make Dr. Julius Hinder state commissioner of health and failed to account for the fund which he i ^obtained to wage his direct primary cam paign. At the “people’s house," Governor Sul zer spent a ctulet day. I,ate in the aft ernoon he went automobile riding. Before leaving he told attaches of the mansion he positively would not grant any Inter view today. ARGUMENTS OCCUPY THE ENTIRE DAY j lie entire session or the court of im- | peachment was given over to legal argu ment and indications were tonight that i Monday and Tuesday would be similarly j occupied, precluding the calling of wit-1 nesses until Wednesday. After the adoption today of rules of! procedure, I). Cady Herrick, chief c6un-: sel for the governor, formally challenged the right of Senators Frawley. Rams per- 1 u ger. Sanner and Wagner to sit as mem bers of the court—the first three on the ground that they were members of the Frawley investigating committee on whose ! report the articles of impeachment wert based; Senator Wagner, president pro tern of the Senate, on tlie ground that in the event of the conviction of the gov ernor he would succeed to “the profit and emoluments of tlie office of lieutenant, governor." Judge* Herrick read a long brief In sup. port of his contention to which Judge Al ton B. Parker, chief counsel for the nan- , agers replied, holding that the court had tno power under the constitution to exclude ^ any of its members. This argument Pre- ; siding Judge Cullen upheld. “All precedents are against it." he j said. Judge Cullen, however, put the chal lenges to the vote of the court with the result that excepting the four senators involved, who asked to be excused from voting, the 32 members present today unanimously decided against the coun sel for the governor. MOVES TO DISMISS THE PROCEEDINGS A motion to dismiss the impeach k ment. precipitated tlie second contest.! I It was made by Attorney Louis Alar- i shall, who spent practically tin* whole afternoon session in reading' a bri« f ^purporting to show that the impeach ment was unconstitutional, based on* the fact that it was brought wh'le the assembly was in extraordinary session , and entitled to act solely upon matters presented to It by the governor. "The above named respondent. Wil liam Sulaer, now comes and appears specially for the purpose of moving this honorable court to dismiss the proceed ings instituted by the assembly of the “tate of New York for his impeach ment,” began the attorney in opening his argument. He cited a long list of precedents to prove his contention, drawing parallel In English law and that of otiier states. He dwelt at length on the amendment for the New York *fstate constitution adopted in 187.'. which contained the following clause: “At extraordinary sessions no subject shall be acted upon, except such as the governor may recommend .'or con sideration." "No words could be more general and all-embraQing." said Air.

'I'lie police and fire departments rushed to the seen \ removed the bodies of Hurst and one daughter, and sent the two in jured girls to the hospital. Four sticks of dynamite on exploded were found in the ruins and the fact that only one and that one attached to I ;U> rst’s body had exploded accounted for the escape of other members of tr.c household. DAUGHTER OF PEARY SAID TO BE ENGAGED New York. September 19.—There reached here from St. Johns. New Foundland, to night the report of the engagement of Miss Marie Peary, daughter of Hear Ad miral Peary, to Donald MacMillan, who accompanied Peary in hia dash to the pole.

DR. SUN IS BELIEVED Former Provisional Presi dent of China Recognized by Adherents S -* Victoria, B. C.. September 19.—Traveling incognito as Wong Kwok Yin, Dr. Sun Yat Sen, former provisional President of the Chinese republic, and leader in the recent revolt against President Yuan Shi Kai, is said to be in Vancouver. He was recognized by compatriots in spite of the fact that his apt earanee had been al tered by shaving off his moustache. He is said to be en route to England. it is said that Dr. Sun Yat Sen landed in Victoria from Japan on the last trip of the Japanese liner Chicago. He re mained in Victoria for some days with friends and later attempted to enter the United States disguised as a Japanese student, but was refused admittance. The impression here is that Dr. Sun dots not feel secure in disclosing his iden tity among his fellow countrymen in British Columbia, who are nearly all supporters of President Yuan. , . i:v / .

Covers Casket A dozen stalwart sailors carried the! body in its heavy lead casket from the rnorjuaiy mapel to the deck.

Aboard this latter beat at mooring the body was taken to a heavily draped . .ita falque in the center of the upper deck of which rested a coffin. The body was placed in the coffin. A wreath and a branch of palms were placed above it. The Correction cast off and dropped anchor a shore distance away waiting for the coming of daylight. The black mist had changed to gray when the . engines began to throb and. she started on her short journey to the Battery pier. The rain then ceased. It was full day when the Correction came to rest in her slip.

No other member of the Gaynor household was aboard the craft. It was Mis. Gaynor’s wish as little publicity as possible be attached to the landing of the body of the mayor. Cer tain information was not given out in advance. With the exception of the police less than 100 pel-sons witnessed the transfer from the Correction to the hearse. Pallbearers Form Line The 12 honorary pallboaros headed by William H. Taft formed two lines be tween which the casket passed at the Gaynor home. For three blocks around tlie Gaynor home there was stretched during the night and today a cordon of police to keep away the. curious. Rufus W. Gaynor, son of tlie mayor, who was with the executive when he died, looked careworn. He was at the point of collapse when he reached home and had to be assisted up the steps. A phyi clan was called to attend him. The widow of the mayor was also attended by a physician. Both suffered from nervous shock. Several children on their way to school brought floral tributes. A few chilliren on their way to school stood in a group In the doorway as the body was taken from the hearse.

Is in Paris After Visit to Uncle at Biarritz MURDER OF MADERO Death Not Brought About by Pun ishable Crime, Says Investigation Committee—Probe Termed a Farce by Madero Relative /I ’m in, Sept(Trvh«y' 19,-—Gen. *rellx Diaz, vffio krid-jUfet iirr© Cr-ona Riav' rlta, told the Associated Press today that he had seen dispatches from Mexi co (Tty in thi* Paris newspapers an nouncing that he had been summoned back to Mexico by President Huerta but that this was all he knew about the matter. Thus far, he said, he had received no order of recall and would remain ’in Paris until he did so, hold ing himself in readiness to start at a moment s notice. "I am a soldier and always ain pre pared to go anywhere at any time in obedience to my superiors when l am ordered," added General Diaz. General Diaz said that when he was ordered recently to go to Japan he had just two days In which to get ready. His instructions then were to go to Tokio and return as soon as possible so as to .be in Mexico before the presi dential elections took place. He said his present stay in Paris would not be a long one. Asked if President Huerta would sup port his candidacy ror chief executive of Mexico General Diaz replied that General Huerta would take no interest in the election beyond that of seeing it properly carried out. He seemed con fident, however, of the success of his candidacy, for which he declared his friends in Mexico weir now working hard. He also was optimistic with re gard to tin* situation in general in Mex ico and thought that everything now' pointed to the early re-establishment of peace. Kider Diaz Healthy General Diaz said he left his uncle former President Porflrio Diaz, at Biar ritz in surprisingly good health arid vigor for a man entering his S4th year. The only thing that troubled the ex president was increasing deafness. He said bis uncle would return to Mexico some time after calm had been re stored. but as a resident only, declar ing that he would not re-enter the political arena. During his stay in Europe General Felix Diaz has been in poor health, lie com plained that he had never recovered from the rigors of his three months’ imprison ment in an underground cell in the old Spanish prison in Vera Ortiz, after his unsuccessful attempt, to foment a revolu tion in October of last year. According to one of his secretaries. Gen eral Diaz believes that the coldness shown him during his trip up the Pacific coast to Vancouver was due more to sus picion of the motives of his mission to Japan than to any antagonism by the people because of the part he took in the overthrow of .\1 adorn. Tire secre tary added that General Diaz feels that the United States government may not be unfriendly toward Ids ambition to become President of Mexico. He said General Diaz had asserted that friendship for the United Stales will be one rff the cardinal points of his policy should he attain the presidency of the Mexican republic.

Hans Schmidt, slayer of Anna Auinuller, asked for death in a statement today. I "The district atttorney wants me to go i to the electric chair and 1 want to go,” he said. "What's the use of delaying?" Schmidt afterward expressed ideas on the taking of human life that fitted in with the theory of inspector Faurot. in charge of the murder investigation, that the renegade priest might have ber*n plan ning a series of homicides, lie declared himself a believer in euthanasia and that he would be doing right in taking the lives of the crippled ami of persons un dergoing mental or physical suffering, detectives who talked with him this after-I noon reported. "L believe 1 would be carrying out Ood's will." Schmid! said, “iV I put out of this world all Htibh' pe»pTt\ f*\V«mirl r'nil their lives without their suffering any pain.” F^aurot's suspicions of Schmidt’s possi ble homicide plans wore strengthened by the discovery among Schmidt’s effects of a hook of physieans' death certificates and other blanks necessary in disposing of the dead. Schmidt declared that the.** were only for use in the case of Anna Auinuller. He had stolen the certificates I'rom a reputable physician uptown. In told the detectives, because he had 11»* tended to kill the girl in a way that would make it appeal sic* had died a natural death. Hut afterward he had decided .j cut her throat and dispose ol' her body us best he could. “Schmidt’s papers have given us 50' clues.” said Faurot today, "any one of1 which is liable to turn up something new about Ids activities. Ills industry was amazing and his i < soured illness wonder ful. Hut 1 am unable to say now whether we caught hmi at the beginning or at the ending of a series of homicides.” The parts of Anna Aumullei s hotly that Were picked up In the Hudson liver and kept in Hoboken for the inquest of the New Jersey authorities, held last night, were brought to this city today and placed in the Bellevue morgue.

The 'busmen who had not already gone out agreed to a truce pending arbitra- ' tion by the hoard of trade of their dc-* | mauds on the employers. The motormen and conductors of the| Tilling Omnibus company, however, will j remain idle meanwhile, which will keep 500 'busses off the street. Two of the motor 'bus companies which have agreed to recognize the men's unions will con tinue to operat • their vehicles even II arbitration fails. The danger of a railway strike is not yet over. The Liverpool strikers have accepted the offer of the managers to reinstate men who are willing to handle traffic which, under the law, the com panies must accept, but they made their acceptance conditional, upon the acquies cence of the men in Birmingham and; other strike centers to the plan. Birmingham labor leaders are still at tempting to force a general strike. They met the committee of the national union i today and the result of the decisions ! reached will he announced tomorrow.
