SOUTH BEND, INDIANA, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 1, 1913. PRICE TWO CENTS BEND TIMES vv to r. . c i T 1.1 ST ALBANY, X. Y.. Oct. l. When the Impeachment court, before which Cov. William Sulzer is leing tried on har-'fs of high . crimes and misde meanors convened Wednesday there were nersUtent reports that an agree ment had been reached with Tam many Hall by which the governor had agreed to resign if the impeachment proceedings were dropped. Wh n annouiict-mfnt was made that the .sessions would bo adjourned from Wednesday until next Monday, the bt lief that such agreement had been made was strengthened. Grave doubts w r' -x pressed, however, that the ac tual juuues who arf .-itting with the senators in the high court of impeach ment would thus allow the case to be halted. The three-day cessation was ex plained by a member of the court on the ground that a religious holiday intervenes. ALP. ANY, X. Y., Oei. L Kvl denc that CJov. Sulzer's stock transac tions with the Xew York brokerage lirm of Harris & Fuller were for the ijreount of Airs. Sulzer. was Tuesday lLselosed at the trial of his impeach ment. The articles of impeachment charge that 'the governor made u.se f some of his unreported campaign contributions in these transactions. Melville R Fuller, head of the firm, said that the governor had told him that Mrs. Sulzer had a loan with the H a n n b u i ii i ! y UBILL II mm- defunct Carnegie Trust company of Xew York, and that in order to take up the loan, for which he had tflven his note, ho had drnoaited se curities belonging to Mrs. Sulzer with Harris & Fuller and borrowed money thereon to pay the note. Fuller said the governor had told him this In the executive mansion in Albany, on July 30 last when he had called there at Mr. Sulzer's request after receiving a subpoena to appear before the Frawley investigating com mittee. "Mr. Fuller, you know that these fcecuritles were Mrs. Sulzer's don't you?" the governor asked him, ac cording to the witness. The broker said he replied in the negative. " 'Well,' said the governor, 'those se curities belonged to Airs. Sulzer when I brought them to you,' " Fuller testi fied. Borrowed the Money. " 'She had a loan with the Car negie Trust company. They required me to give a note every three months and it was very annoying, so I took the securities down to you and bor rowed the money from you "I said to Gov. Sulver: That may he all true. There is no evidence of anything of that kind on my books and cannot be proven by me. If it Is true, you'll have no trouble in prov ing it, as the books of the Carnegie Trust company must be a matter of record " The governor's account with Har ris fc Fuller, which the impeachment managers charge was a marginal or speculative account, not a loan ac count, was opened in 1910, according to the books of the firm which Fuller presented today. The Carnegie Trust company. It was recalled tonight, was In financial dlfllcultles that year and subsequently It failed. The account not only showed a long Feries of borrowing on securities brought to the firm by Sulzer, hut also tho purchase and sale of other securi ties, calls for "margins", and the de posit by Sulzer of cash payments of Htook in response to these calls. The account began In June. 1910. when the governor deposited 100 shares of "Rig Four" worth at the then market price JS.200, and obtained thereon a 5 6.0 00 loan. The next day however, he brought through the firm 100 shares of the same stock against which he gave no security except the Fquitj." in his llrst 100 shares. WiT l'ur Tumbles. Then Rig Four beg-an to tumble in the market and the rest of the ac count was a record of efforts by Air. Sulzer to keep up the "margin" as disclosed i:i letters Harris & Fuller wrote to him using that term In de manding that the deficit In the ac count be made good.? Sixteen thousand dollars In cash, which the impeachment managers claim formed part of the governor's campaign contribution, were usd in meeting these calls for "margin", ac cording to the books. Finally, in July. 191". Lieut. U M. Joserthal, a Xew York banker and a member of the governor's staT. came to the rescue by javing off a dMt balance against the account of $2.7.?9 and taking up the securities. At this time the governor had put into the account, according to the books. $73,4 39 in stock or cash and hU net loss excluding the amount paid in by Jesephthal. was S.UL The governor authorized Josephthal to olos the account in a note to Har ris A: Fuller, produced in evidence, as follows: Introduce3 Note. "Please deliver to Lbvit. Comman der L. M. Josephthal. th securities now held as collateral In my loan upon the payment of th? debit balance thfreon. (Signed) William Sulzer, for Airs. Sulzer." Fuller denied Tuesday that to hi knowledge Mrs. Sulxer ever had any thing to do with the account and said he had never seen the note presented by Josephthal until it had been shown to him when he was- called before the impeachment managers in Xew York :ty. The note had been delivered to hl partner, he explained. In controversion to the characteri sation of ;he account a a loan, coun sel for the governor's accusers drew :rom Filler a statement that on Dec. .". fwc. days before the govern' r a as r :a::gurat d. the debit balance on the aaount had been entered as a loan by the firm to Gov. Sulzer. This balance was approximately $t0.C"0. Fuller admitted thai !! was purely a bookoepir: transaction and that no note had !. . n given bv the gmernor a evident e of the Indebtedness. Till transaction, described as a "cross entry" prevented use of the securities as collateral In the firm's routing transactions, the broker ex plain ed. "How did you come to do it?" he was asked. Probably,' I:e replied, "because my partner though; it wa3 not wise to have securities going around the atreet In William Sulzer's np.me." The witness denied that Gov. Sulzer had requested that the account should be transferred to a lean. The "cross entry" which Fuller Faid was made by his cashier "showed upon its face" Atty. Kresel said, that it was not made on the date upon it purported to be. It was also brought out that in June, 1913. after former Gov. A. E. Sprlggs of Montana, an old time friend of Mr. Sulzer, had contributed a check for $5,000 to the account, there was an other "cross entr.y" transaction by which it appeared that the firm loaned the governor 535.000. "It was all simply a bookkeeping entry, wasn't it?" asked Atty. Kresel. Paid OfT One Loan. "It was a cross entry off one lean and making another," 'explained the witness. With Fuller o.i the stand counsel for the assembly 'nanagers also began to lay the foundation for proof of the charges in the eighth article of im peachment that the governor used his oflicial position to effect the curreut prices of securities listed on the New York stock exchange, "in which he was speculating". The article charges that he first urged the passage of cer tain legislation and then withdrew or attempted to withdraw It. "Did you appear before Gov. Sulzer early in this year with reference to certain legislation which was pending affecting the New York stock ex change?" asked Atty. Kresel. "I did," was the broker's replv. "At that time. Gov. Sulzer's' ac count was still In your office?" "It was." Fuller was not cross-examined on this point. A complete record of all the "stock exchange reform bills." introduced at the regular session of the legislature at the recommendation of Gov. Sul- eer. was then placed In evidence. Kspeclal emphasis wan placed upon the executive's special measure urg ing the bill designed to double the tax on transfers of stock. This meas ure was Introduced Feb. 4 by former Sen. Stilwell, now a prisoner in Sing Sing, and was not reported out of committee. Will Show the Reason. The managers' counsel stated they would show that the reason , the bill was not reported was because the governor had withdrawn his advocacy of it. They announced that in this connection they would inquire closely into the public statement made by the executive March 10 in announc ing that he had "withdrawn the stock transfer tax bill." At that time the governor said: "It has aroused considerable appo sition from sagacious business people throughout the state, and I think much of this opposition is well founded and that the bill goes too far in placing to great a burden of taxa tion on a single Industry." Atty. Stanchfield made an unsuc cessful attempt to Introduce testi mony regarding the Installation of Louis A. Sarecky Into the immigration service after his resignation as cam paign secretary to the governor. Judge Cullen held that the testimony was not competent at this time, but might be introduced later. In outlining what he expected to prove, Mr. Stanchfield said the gov ernor Induced the civil service com mission to give Sarecky, without ex amination, a position as an examiner of the alien Insane at $4,000 a year, whereas Sarecky received between $1,"Q0 and J 2. 5 00 as secretary. Was All IIimlnary. An of this was preliminary, how ever, to an attempt to prove the charge that the governor induced Sarecky to refuse to testify before the Frawley committee. It will be as serted that Sarecky assumed this at titude because he had bocn given the position.

The "Barbarv Coast" of San Francisco, I known to tourists the world over, cel ebrated Its final passing Tuesday night with a revel that packed its re sorts to suffocation. Promptly at midnight the police ruling preventing the further sale of liquor to women went into effect, and in a last effort to prolong the night life that has made the "Coast" notor ious since the pioneer days, there was a sudden switch from cocktails to grape juice. The police permitted this subterfuge, but the word went forth that hereafter only "straight saloons" from which women will be barred either as entertainers or as visitors, are to be permitted, regardless of the drinks served. Resort owners admit that few of the .10 more pretentious places will survive this onslaught. Between five and eight hundred women and girls suddenly thrown on th ir own resources, afford a problem that the reform forces that forced the closing of Barbary Coast are striving to meet. Homes have been provid ed for a number, but a majority must solve the question of maintenance for themselves. TO GET 55 CENT GAS Indianapolis IVors to Get a Five Cent Reduction. TNDT ANAPOLTS. Vt. 1.

S SENT TO SENATE House Agrees to Everything But Cotton Futures Tax and Inserts Instead the Smith Lever Cotton Amendment. QUESTION NOW RESTS WITH THE SENATORS Measure Will be Called Today Unless There Are Unlooked For Developments May Demand Democratic Caucus. WASHINGTON. Oct. 1. The democratic tariff revising bill left th, house Tuesday night on which the party leaders hoped would h- lln l.i5t Journey to the pnate. After many hours of debate the house adopted the main conference agreement on tr.e bill 254 to 1 OS. a strict party vote, and by this action gave Its endorse ment to everything In the measure ex. cept the cotton futures tax. At the end of a fthort luit bitter f:ght that followed the adoption nf the report. Rep. Underwood. th dem ocratic leader, succeeded in carrying through the 6mllh-lcver cotton fu tures tax amendment by a vote of 171 to 161. Democrat and republican alike voted on this without reeard to party, and a large portion of the dem ocratic membership from southern state? joined in the vigorous demand that the whole subject be carried over to another t'sslr-n of contrrpps. Hcstr: With the Semite. The cotton futures tr.x question nw resta entirely with the senate. Th house concurred In the Clarke amend ment put into the tariff Mil by the senate, but added that the Smlth-Cn-derwood plan as another amendment. Un'rss the penate will accept this chan-je which has the endorsement of the president, the whole cotton fu tures plan will again have to be con sidered in the Joint conference com mittee and again reported to both Inures of congress for action. The bill will be called up in th? fcnate early Wednesday before Sen. Simmons, chairman of the finance committee, unless there are unlocked for developments. ':-veral democratic senators who dissatisfied with certain features of the hill Tuesday began a demand for a democratic caucus to consider the conference report beforo taken up in the senate. Sen. Reed of Missouri insisted that unless certain changes were made In rates fixed by the conference commit tee, he might vote against the report and the tariff bill on its final passage. Piht on Putnres. The cotton futures bill dominated the day's fight In the house alf.hougn but little time actually was given to Its consideration. Tho history of tha "compromise amendment became a matter of record before the day ended. Rep. Underwood said Pres. "Wilson had given it to him. Hop. Lcf.cr added that the basis of the plan wan x bill introduced repeatedly In the sen ate by Sen. Ellison D. Smith of South; Carolina; that he had a-ked the agri- cultural department to put the matter Into the shape for the tariff bill, and that Postmaster don. Burleson had perfected the amendment and given It to the president. Three distinct elements developed among the democrat: in the cotton futures Hght. One branch, led by Rep. Ilardwick. of Georgia. lerr..ipd ed that the whole pubjecl be taken out of th tariff bill and cor..-kb-ro'l as a separate measure. Another section led by Rep.
