IS A WEALTHY MAN
Evidence Collected by Assembly
Managers to Be Published.
New York, Oct. 23.A summary of
the evidence which the board of man
agers of impeachment in the assembly
gathered but which was not produced
against Governor Sulzer at his trial in
Albany will be made public shortly bj
the lawyers who represented the
board. The better part of this evi
dence had been prepared for use
against the governor on cross-examina
tion and for rebuttal in the event that
any strong defense was put up.
After the governor was convicted
the opinion of the board was that it
should be buried and forgotten. Since
Sulzer has accepted a nomination for
the assembly, however, and put him
self again in the running, it is thestate
determination of the men who have
opposed him to let loose a broadside
of new evidence against him.
From information obtained in reli
able sources it is believed that the
summary or circular which will be
issued will contain charges that Sul
zer, Instead of being a poor man, is
worth several hundred thousand dol
lars, if he is not a millionaire.
The statement will tell of various
election contributions heretofore not
mentioned in the oase which Sulzer
received when a candidate for gov
ernor. There are hints that he col
lected more than $200,000.
"Why, judging from the facts that
hare been gathered there seems to
he little doubt that Sulzer is worth
$1,000,000, or almost that much," said
a man who knows the contents of the
pamphlet which is being prepared.
"This talk about Sulzer being a poor
man is foolish. Why, he did not dare
take the witness stand."

Chioago, Oct. 23.Because
of hardships encountered in

DENOUNCED BY REFORMERS
Government Property Rented for Sa
Washington, Oct. 23.Uncle Sam as
a saloonkeeper has drawn the fire of
the anti-saloon league, and Secretary
MoAdoo is the target at which the
fulminations of the white ribboners
are being hurled. _The government
owns a large block of property just
south of the treasury on which it is
proposed to erqct homes for the de
partments of state, justice and possi
bly one other. In the territory, which
is occupied by business buildings, are
three saloons. All of the tenants rent
by the month from the government.
"Heavens!" cried the anti-saloon
league officials, when they discovered
this faet. "This, is a crime and a stain
on good citizenship!"
Whereupon they took up the matter
with the secretary of the treasury.

DR. ANNA HOWARD SHAW.
Assumes Charge of Prepara
tions for Suffrage Convention*
by American Press Association
WILL BE HELD NEXT MONTH
Woman Suffrage Convention to As
semble at Washington.
Washington, Oct. 23.Suffragists
flocked to the headquarters of the
National .American Woman Suffrage
association to welcome Dr. Anna
Howard Shaw, president of the or
ganization, who arrived here to take
charge personally of the plans for the
women's national convention which
meets next month. The leader was
hailed by a delegation of workers on
her arrival in the capital.
Preparations also were made to re
ceive Mrs. Rheta Chllde Dorr, who
came from Prance with Mrs. Emme
line Pankhurst Word was received
from her that she expected to visit
Washington shortly and a local thea
ter was engaged in which to hold a
mass meeting in her honor. Mrs.
Dorr is to be the editor of a publica
tion to be issued here in the imme
diate future in support ef the "cause."
Washington Has No Faith In
Washington, Oct. 23.The Mexican
elections next Sunday are to be a
faroe. This is expected both at the
department and in other admin
istrative circles. But in holding
them Huerta has added to the dan
ger of all foreigners in the Southern
Because of this there is grave ap
prehension here. It is feared the
announcement that there has been no
choice and that Huerta will continue
as "provisional president" and abso
lute dictator will precipitate demon
strations that may call for imme
diate action by the United States.
The policy of "hands off" an
nounced by President Wilson will be
changed only by serious outrages
against foreigners. But with prices
of all foodstuffs and clothing ad
vanced by leaps and bounds and ex
change in Mexico City already be
yond the prohibitive mark, the feel
ing against Americans, who are held
responsible for existing conditions,
continues to grow. All of the con
fidential advices received by the state
department during the last ten days
have emphasized the gravity of af
fairs. The president and Secretary
of State Bryan are holding numerous
conferences on the subject.
A plan of action has been com
pleted. It is carefully guarded. But
it is known that if it should become
necessary both the army and navy
could act at a moment's notice.
