VOLUME XXXXIII BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1913 12 PAGES NUMBER 143 WANTED TO RETURN MONEY CONTRIBUTED BY JACOB H. SCHIFF Former Law Partner of the Governor Asked if Bank er Would Accept It. He Declined CHARGE THAT SULZER SECURED FUNDS FROM BREWING INTERESTS All Testimony Pertaining to Cam paign Contributions to Governor Will Be Admitted—Sarecky Found by Process Serv ers and Subpoenaed < Albany, X. Y., September 25.—These developments today marked the Impeach ment trial of Governor Sulzer: Jacob H. Schiff, a New York banker, testified that he was recently asked by Samuel I. Frankenstein, former law part ner of Governor Sulzer, if he would ac cept the return of the alleged $2500 cam paign contribution which the banker said yesterday he gave to the governor with out restriction as to its use. Mr. Schiff said he had replied negatively. The high court, by an unanimous vote, decided to admit all testimony pertaining to (ampaign contributions made to the governor, even though they were not specified in the articles of impeachment. This ruling paved the, way for the intro duction of evidence intended to show the governor had solicited and received large contributions fsom brewing interests. Wanted Money in Cash The governor asked, according to the testimony, that these contributions be given in cash instead of checks. Counsel for the impeachment managers said they were prepared to prove the governor received campaign contributions "vastly in excess” of the total mentioned in the articles of impeachment. There were more than 100 contributions not accounted for. counsel asserted. The names of a large number of these contributors, other than those of the brewing interests, were brought into the evidence. These included 52 persons men tioned as drawers of Sulzer checks in the account of Louis A. Sarecky, the governors campaign secretary, in tho Mutual Alliance Trust company. This account showed, with checks and cash, that deposits of $11,100 had been made between September 10, 1912, and the date o* the governor's inauguration. Decision on the question as to whether -nlxer's alleged mleure. of checks given the governor without restri tlon as to their use constituted larceny was re [ served to give the court an opportunity to Investigate the authorities. Sarecky, regarded by the prosecution as one of the important witnesses, and whom they said they had been unable to locate, was discovered by process servers in Albany and served with a subpoena. Judge Lewis J. Conlan of New York, 1 a life long friend of the governor, tea-1 titled he had raised money for the gov ernor's campaign, but had given it to him without restriction as to its use. Sulzer called personally or. Charles A. Stadler, president of the American Malt- 1 ing comuany, Stadler testified, and re quested his aid in obtaining the support of Tammany Hall. He said he obtained the support and later solicited campaign funds for Sulzer. The. assembly managers decided tonight to bring no more impeachment charges against the governor. Visited the Candidate Startler, who is h former state senator, declared that after several invitations from Sulzer he had visited the candi date to talk things over. "The conversation was on ttie general topic of the political situation pending." said Mr. Startler, "and Mr. Sulzer asked ; me to Intercede wherever I could among ! my friends and to help him all 1 could, j "He said: ‘You can help me in more than one way and you know v. hut you can do.’ I told him I understood 'the | situation fllid would do what I could."! - '‘Subsequent to the nomination did ; * you see friends of yours?” be was asked by Attorney Kresel of the prose cution. “I did,” was the reply. “Whom did you approach?” ‘‘Mr. Sulzer requested me to go to Fourteenth street (Tammany Hall) and Intercede for him there," responded the former senator. “I promised liimi 1 would, and I did. T wont to Fourteenth, street and saw the parties in power, talked the matter over there and rec ommended Mr. Sulzer’s nomination. ] promised that if they gave him their support T would do all 1 could for him and that my friends would do all they could. Subsequently 1 reported back to Mr, Sulzer what I had done and he thanked me.” Mr. Stadler subsequently told of hav ing collected $250 from Peter Doelger, $100 from William J. Elias, $250 from George <\ Hawley, $250 from August Taicbow, $250 from William ar.d Peter Hoffman, .all representing liquor in terests.

H., September 25.—A di vision of opinion Is said to exist among Governor Felker’s advisers as to wheth er he should honor the request of the state of New York for the extradition of Harry K. Thaw. Some of them take the attitude that New York papers are In proper legal form and that It lx unnecessary for the governor to go be low their surface in an inquiry into the tacts of the case upon ighich they are based. Others at the statehouso take an opposite view. . But Governor Felker. who is himself a lawyer, is understood to attach import ance to »eiur|ng further information on the subject of the reported indictment of • Thaw by the Duchess county (New York) grand Jury for conspiracy In connection With his escape from fhe Matteawan in sane asylum- No indictment has been 1—■*- public, but William Travers Jerome TAFT PLEADS FOR MARBLE BUILDING Succeeds in Persuading Secretary McAdoo to Change Plans for the New Haven Postoffice Washington, September 25.—Former President Taft gave himself over tS the artistic today in the performance of his first public service since he left the White House. With his fellow members of the Lin coln memorial commission,1 Mr. Taft de voted practically the entire day to poll ing over classic designs and s O of stone for the erection of a L tribute to the war President. After delving into the details of num erous bids for the $2,000,000 memorial the commission adjourned until tomot - row, when it is expected-an award will be made. With enthusiastic allegiance to his newly found home—New Haven —the former President earlier in the day had persuaded Secretary McAdoo to construct the proposed $450,000 post office in the Connecticut city of marble in preference to granite. The appear ance of the former republican President at the treasury building in the control of democracy was a unique spectacle. Only a little longer than yesterday he could have directed the selection; to day, with only the privileges of pri vate life, he pleaded for a city's fa vor and, wearing his characteristic smile, confessed the graeiousnoss of the democrats. The office of Sherman AJ - lt*n, assistant Secretary of the Treas ury, where a cartload of marble had been dumped, presented the appearance of a stone yard. The former President bent over the pile for a half hour and found the sample which pleaded him as fitting for a postoffice in the uni versity city. The day was gone before Mr. Taft had an opportunity to call on Presi dent Wilson, as he had planned. He will probably pay his respects tomor row. EDISON SHUT OUT OF OWN LABORATORY New Hoy Informs Him No Strangers Are Allowed—Commended for Observance of Rules Orange, N. J., September 26.—When Thomas A. Edison, who has just recov ered from an illness, started to enter ids laboratory here yesterday he was inter cepted by a Jad who had recently be come attached to the laboratory office. “No strangers allowed in here," said the youth. "No one except employes can enter the building unless they have an appointment with Mr. Edison and you can't see hint because lie’s at home." The inventor asked to whom lie should go if be wished to make an appointment with Mr. Edison. The new boy summoned W. R. Meadowcraft. the secretary ol Mr. Edison. He was astonished when lie saw the so-called stranger. "I’ve come up to take Mr.. Edison’s place; will you employ a man who is willing to work now and then,’ said the inventor as he shook hands. He said, "Meadowcraft, that boy is all right; I hope he’ll continue to see the rules of tJie laboratory are carried out in its technicalities.” HARD FIGHT TO KEEP VESSEL AFLOAT Ciale Struck Schooner City of Papette. One Sailor Drowned and Ship Badly Damaged San Francisco, Cal., September 25.—With one man missing and the crew exhausted from a three days' fight to keep the ves sel afloat during a storm the cod fishing schooner City of Papette arrived in San Francisco harbor last night in a battered condition. The schooner sailed from here for Unga. Alaska, under Captain Prell berg. with a cargo of supplies for’ the Alaska fishing stations, having a crew of 11 and 22 fishermen. The gale hit the vessel Sunday 125 miles and upended the craft. The deck load shifted and the seams were ripped be fore the schooner could right herself. One sailor was washed overboard and drowned. Extra pumps were rigged up and all men stood by in shifts or relays to keep the little vessel afloat while struggling hatek to harbor. CADETS SHOULD TAKE THEIR PUNISHMENT Garrison Upholds Superintendent of Military Academy in Curtailing Privileges of Cadets Washington, September 25.—Secretary Garrison placed himself on record against any practices savoring of hazing at West Point today. • He sustained the recent action of Col. Clarence P. Townsley, superintendent of the military academy in restricting the privileges of 18 cadets. These were found guilty of hazing practices. ”1 am extremely regretful that these boys should have written whining letters to their parents,” said the Secretary. “The first virtue of manhood is to take your medicine like a mail, particularly in a case where your own conduct has brought on the disease.” SERS ARE OPINIONS ON IADITION CASE salcl in arguing on New York's petition for extradition before Governor Felker Tues day that an indictment had been found, but has been kept secret at his re quest. ft is said that unless the gov ernor learns more definitely Just what httltude has been taken by the Duchess county grand Jury lie will probably defer his decision in regard to signing tSe ex tradition warrant. It Is believed here that the governor will grant the request made by Thaw s counsel today that they be allowed until October G to file additional briefs in Che extradition matter. For two hours today Thaw strolled about tlie downtown streets and suburbs with Police Officer ('. D. Stevens, attract ing only casual attention. There was no outward appearances of any restraint. Thaw seemed to enjoy the outing even more than the automobile trips be baa bad. y POLICY AS ADOPTED ACCOMPLISHES TWO Conditions in Mexico Such as to Encourage the Administration PREPARATIONS FOR elections .*o*$***_ -uerta Will Not Be Candidate, But Will Support (iamboa. Nominee of Catholic Party—Washing ton Awaits Liberal Choice Washington, t September 25.—President Wilson took the position today that the policy of moral suasion adopted by the United States toward Mexico had ac complished its two cardinal purposes—to obtain assurances that there would be a constitutional election and that Pro visional President Huerta would not be a candidate to succeed himself. Advices received here describing in de tail the preparations being made for th«* election of October 2(5, and stating also that General Huerta would not be a can didate but would support Federico Gam boa, Mexican minister of foreign affairs, the nominee of the Catholic party, en couraged President Wilson and Secre tary Bryan to believe that the Huerta government *.s carrying out what the United States, luid emphasized In the Lind negotiations as the essential fea tures of a satisfactory settlement of the revolutionary troubles. Will Withhold Decision The President realizes that it will not immediately be possible to judge whether the processes of the election are actually Constitutional and will withhold decision for some time as to whether the choice of that election will be recognized by the United States. Likelihood that foreign governments will await tlie judgjnent of the United States before extending recognitibn, is being impressed upon the Mexican au- i thorities, it is said, with a view to in suring free choice. However, doubt as to the value of the coming election as expressing the will of the Mexican peo ple waq cast by constitutionalist head quarters here today in the issuance of a statement saying its supporters, extend ing over many Mexican states, would not go to the polls. Many persons familiar with the pur poses of the administration here predict ed that the next step in the policy of (he United Stains would'be an effort to show Indirectly to the constitutionalists the necessity of participating in the elec tion. In this connection it is pointed out by officials today that Mexican law would hold the uproaching election valid and constitutional if n majority of the polling* places in the republic were shown to have been in legal action. The claim of the Mexican government that it con trols the territory in which the bulk of population of Mexico resides will be taken into account by the Washington admin istration in judging the coming election. Consuls to Report Consuls throughout the republic will re port to tlie state department their opinion ot the fairness of the election, and if the government resulting from the election is recognized, the policy of neutrality be tween the factions would be declared, ended and the United Stages by exporta tion of arms would tend its mural sup i port to the government set up in the | Mexican capital. j President Wilson in discussing the situa | tion with callers spoke of the practical difficulties of a constitutional election in Mexico at present, but regarded with satisfaction the determined effort of the authorities in Mexico City to comply with the principal suggestions made In the negotiations conducted by John Lind. Administration officials let it be known that the United States was not concerned with the personnel of the candidates be yond its opposition to General Huerta’s constinuation in power—a position justi fied in their minds because of his irregu lar assumption of authority and over throw uf Madero. This attitude was de clared necessary to further the cause of stable government in Latin-America. i Candidacy Provokes Discussion Gamboa's candidacy, nevertheless, caused much discussion In official circles and doubt was frequently expressed that he could be elected. It was pointed out by administration officials that the Cut< ollc party always had been a minority party in Mexico because most Mexicans, although of tile Catholic religion tradi tionally has opposed the idea of a Cath olic political party as leading possibly to a reunion of chtlrch and stats. With keen interest official Washington is waiting to fjee whom the liberals in Mexico City will name. Manuel Chlero former ambassador to the United States under the Madero regime, is regarded here as a likely choice. Whether his candidacy would mean participation by the constitutionalists in the election or whether some other man acceptable to their cause would- be selected, were q»es tlons on which the next steps in the situ ation seem to revolve. A feeling of relief that the situation was adjusting itself was apparent here today From high administration olflcials came I he statement while no change in orders had been sent to consuls about Ameri cans leaving Mexlcfe, the disposition of President Wilson always been to leave the question entirely to the discretion of the Americans in Mexico, still urgin those in the trouble zones to depart and offering them pecuniary assistance. Works Wants More Action San Diego, September 25—Declaring the duty of the United States to Intervene and to restore order in Mexico. United States Senator John D. Works. In dellv i the oration of the day at the dedi ! cation of the site of the monument to j Juan Rodriguez Cabrlllo, took occasion today to criticise severely conditions In ' Mexico and the attitude of the United 1 States. \ ; "Just t0 the south of ub, almost within ; reach of gunshot, our men arb being as sassinated and our women outraged dally." he said.

Several shots were fired into the mail and express cars before the mail clerks and messenger got out, three o fwhom, Saunders, Phillips and Pools, narrowly missed being killed. Saunders' head was filled writh glass from the door where the bullet passed through. Two dynamite charges were neces sary to open the safe, the last one being so heavy as to jar the ground several hundred feet away. Engineer Daniels stopped for a red block signal when the robbers climbed on, ordering the fireman to uncouple the express car, which was carried some distance down the track. After blowing open the safe, the robbers ran the engine down the track several miles, putting the fireman off. Express Messenger Kelly was cov ered before he knew what was hap pening. He could not say what the losses would be, but thought it would be light. The mail car did not have much of value that was known at this hour. The engine, mail and express cars have not been recovered. Vance, September 26.—(Special.)

No Hope for*Report Today Both houses of Congress gave up hope of a report from the conference commu te*- tomorrow, the House adjourning until Saturday and the Senate until Monday. The report may go Into the House Satur day. There were rumors today of strong op position to the report that might develop in the House on the ground that the re publicans had not been taken Into the conference that worked out the details of the measure. If such opposition appears it probably would take the form of a point of order, against the report on the ground that it contains matter inserted without author ity by the conference committee. In sev eral instances the conferees have changed provisions In such a way that some members of Congress declare that new legislation has been added to the mil. No Delay in Action on Report The conferees insist, however, that they have acted wholly within their authority, and democratic leaders do not anticipate any marked delay m action on the report.
