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. Marshal),
legislative body, or either or Its com
"Every possible subject upon which a
ponent parts may act is covered, and
any possible action on any conceivable
subject is prohibited unless the consti

Other Children
Bloomington. Jnd., September 19.—Mack
Hurst, 50 years of age, today blew up
his home with dynamite, killing himself
and his 17-year-oki daughter Mauds, seri
ously injuring two other daughters.
Fanny, 13, and Elizabeth. 6. and stunning
his wife, tiurst had been separated from
his wife for six we#»ks and yesterday
she refused to take him back.
It is believed that Hurst then, in a fit
of insanity, determined to kill his entire
family consist my Of hi* „wffc* ami eight
children.
The dead girl met the fate intended for
her mother and* the fa'*f taut they had
(hanged beds for the night cost the
daughter her life.
Htil’s4 after placing a stick of dynamite
under each of, the three beds in the place
tied two sticks to his own body and
crawled into the hed whJon he had for
merly occupied with his wi'V, bur which
last night contained the thr/o daughters,
Majude. Fannie and Elizabeth.
Fannie beard her father getting into
bed and spoke to him.
“Lay still, ' Hurst admonished her.
“We’ll all die together.”
Before the girl could move the explosion
tent the place and aroused the city.
'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.
Miss Peary is the "Snowbird” of the
Esquimaux, who bestowed that title upon
|ier shortly after her birth, farther north
than any white child in the world, her
mother being the tirst white woman to
winter with an arctic expedition.
Forest Destroyed by Fire
Hanning. Cal., September 19.—One of
the finest pirn* groves In the Cleve
land national forest and a portion of
the watershed from which the Red
lands,V Riverside and San Bernard inc
citrus fruit growers obtain their irri
gation supplies was destroyed today
by a forest fire which after three days'
steady progress reached the south fork
of the Santa Anna river.
DR. SUN IS BELIEVED
Former Provisional Presi

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.

New Yojr'i September/19.—The body of
William / nor, mayor of New York,
who di<-. JT^omher 10 at sea, lay tonight
in his/ jHriyn home.
In ' jftg.zling rain it was lowered at
4 oVyjl nis morning from the high deck
of Crj>ilPr Lusitania to the city's boat
*n. #
^Jrugh a mist that lay heav£ over
arbor the Correction steamed pior
A v i at tiie Battery. A picked squad
«. *iOO policemen who had stood all night
at Pier A. formed the escort to Brook
lyn.
The funeral boat glided into the harbor
end came to anchor at quarantine At
12 o’clock, the American flag at half- j
mast at her stern.
Only Fla? Covers Casket
A dozen stalwart sailors carried the!
body in its heavy lead casket from the
rnorjuaiy mapel to the deck. The r : p, i
of flowers under which it lay was re- '
moved and only the great American llag
placed over the casket at Liv< rpool cov
ered it as a windlass lowered It slowly
iT, feet down an inclined plane to iho
deck of the Correction.
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. Might six-foot pall
bearers, four in the uniform of the tire
department and four in the uniform «>f
the police, each man with a small bit of
crepe on the sleeves, lifted it over the
gangplank to the hearse.
The long vigil of the picked squad of
police sent at 9 o’clock last night to the
pier, came to an end. They stood at
attention, each man at his horse’s head
*-*-'the Wfi,s "pi;tr«fF *r *4>e bears* ^
and then m hunting their noises led the*
funeral train through the flpserted streets.
Their route lay through lower Broad
way and past the city hall to Brooklyn
bridge. Over this bridge, which the mayor
had so often trod on his wn to and
from his home, che funeral party went. ;
Body Left With ramily
It was after 8 o\ lock when they reached
the late mayor’s home. There the body
was taken to a large room. The commit
tee appointed to receive it then withdrew,
the 100 policemen clattered back through
the streets to their station precincts and
the body was left with only the family
surrounding it.
The body will remain at home until
tomorrow night. Private funeral sar
vices will be held tomorrow afternoon
and at the conclusion the body will bo
taken to the city hall, where it will
lay in state until Monday forenoon,
when funeral services will be held in
Trinity church.
With the committee on funeral ar
rangements that went down the harbor
aboard the Correction were Norman
Gaynor, the mayor's son, and Harry
Vingut, his son-in-law, representing
the family. 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. They |
would have been dismissed by the police I
if Robert Adamson had not Interfered.
“Let them come in,” he said. “They
were the mayor’s best, friends.’’
The 900 motion picture theatres of the
greater city will be closed Monday dur
ing the progress of Mayor Gaynor's fu
neral, it was said.,
Mayor Kline announced tonight that
in appreciation of® the extraordinary
honors paid to the late mayor by the
lord mayor and corporation of the city of
Liverpool, as well as the citizens of that
city, Mrs. Gaynor had especially re
quested the committee of arrangements
to have the British flag entwined with
the American flag in Trinity church dur
ing the services Monday. In further ap
preciation the British consul and his aids
have been asked to occupy seats in *.he
church with the family.

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.

Mexico City. September 19—The deaths
of the late President Francis I. Madero

Schmidt Says He Wants To
Go To The Electric Chair
Xew York, September 19. 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

we caught hmi at the beginning or at the

Birmingham Labor Leaders
Still Trying to Force a
National Strike
London, September 19 The strike sit
uation in London was Improved tonight.
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. The
door has been opened for a climb down
by the strikers through the announce
ment that goods which the strikers had
refused to handle were both union made
and handled in Dublin.
Tile strike has extended lo Sheffield,
(Teweberry and other places.
Dublin was quiet tonight, but the num
ber of strikers there has increased. The
police adopted unusual measures to han
dle the daily parade of strikers, which
tin* strike leaders had planned for to
night instead of today. A heavy rain
storm, however, caused the strikers to
seek cover, thus breaking up the parade.
At Manchester the trade of the port
is paralyzed. Five thousand dockmen
are now on strike and the port is closed
to business.

Insane Man Never Extra

New York, September 19 Inquiries are

throughout the country b\ counsel for
Harry K. Thaw, it was learned tonight,
'to find if a precedent anyw’here exists

authorities in asking the extradition from
New Hampshire of Thaw, an insane man, ;
on a charge of crime.
Moses H. Grossman of the Thaw coun
sel. who lias the inquiry in charge, de
clared it has been his contention all
along that Thaw could not be extra
dited on a criminal charge and that Ids
Inquiry, wdiich was nearly completed, had
more than ever convinced him that law
and precedent were all against such ex
tradition.
Never, so far as 1 can find,” said
Mr. Grossman, has there been an ex
tradition of an insane man on a charge
of crime. In fact, there lias never be
