But Six Members Vote Against
Hurrying Along the Tariff
Bill Tax on Cotton Futures
WASHINGTON. Oct. Dlssatis
faction arnoiitr democratic senators
which Wednesday prevented rinal ac
tion on the tarltf bill, was dissipated
under the influence of a heated cau
cus discussion, and Wednesday evening
the caucus approved the bill as report
ed by the conference committee of the
house and senate. But Fix democrats
voted against approving the report.
The caucus decided to abandon its
position on the proposition in the bill
to tax dealings In cotton futures and
to leave the entire subject for later
legislative action. Roth the amend
ment of Sen. Clarke of Arkansas,
written into the bill in the senate and
th" b ss drastic administration substi
tute presented by House Leader Un
derwood and adopted by the house
will be thrown out by the senate
After the caucus Sen. Simmons said
he was confident that the senate
would comnU't" its consideration of
the tariff bill Thursday. He paid a
motion would be made first U agree
to the conference report and that
then he would move to disagree to
the Underwood cotton tax amend
ment and also to recede from the
senate amendment. With the bill
thus disposed of by the senate the
house probably would agree to drop
the cotton future tax provision for the
present and send the tariff bill to the
Sen. Simmons expressed conlldence
that there would he no desertions
from the democrats who voted for
the bill on its original pa.-rsago In the
senate, when the measure appears
Thursday. A resolution proposing to
bind the democrats by Wednesday
night's caucus was offered by Sen.
Lewis of Illinois, but was withdrawn
with the understanding that the bind

applied to the entire consideration of

Menaced on one sid1 by danger from
a further rise in tlve Calcasieu river,

the other by an increased overflow
from English bayou, Lake Charles
Wednesday night is confronted with
one of the most serious floods in its
history. Backwater Wednesday night
from the bayou was flowing into one
of the principal residence districts at
the rate of two inches an hour. Only
th. northern part of the city and a
strip along the lake side six blocks
wide remained entirely out of water.
IJoats have been distributed over the
citv ready for any emergency.
The tracks of the Southern Pacific,
the only railroad operating trains into
the city, were a foot under water
tonight. Rescue parties were sent ot.t
from here today to remove to high
ground many persons marooned in
farm houses east of the city, where
water has covered the land from four

ALBANY, X. V.. Oct. 2. The as
sembly beard of managers Wednesday
rested their case in the trial of the
impeachment of Gov. William Sulzer.
The hich court then adjourned until
Thursday afternoon when counsel for
the governor will submit several pre
liminary motions for the court to oe
oide before opening the case for the
These disposed of, counsel will
probably ask permission to take an
other adjournment before calling their
lirst witness. This witness, it is ex
pected, will be Louis A. Sareckv, the
governor's campaign secretary, whom
counsel for the impeachment man
agers failed to put on the stand, al
though he was under subpoena. Sa
recky indorsed many of the checks
given to Sulzer during his campaign
which were not reported in his sworn
statement of campaign contributions.
1oth the governor and Mrs. Sulzer
are expected to take the stand before
the defense closes.
The governor will defend his failure
to report the numerous contributions
he received on the ground that they
were personal gifts, it is believed.
May Tell II or Story.
.Mrs. Sulzer, it is said, will defend
his alleged speculative transactions in
Wall st. with testimony to show that
they were conducted for her account.
She is expected to tell the story of the
loan which she is said to have con
tracted with the Carnegie Trust Co.,
and to seek to prove that for the sole
purpose f paying the loan, the gover
nor borrowed money from the stock
exchange firm of Harris & Fuller on
securities owhed by her and did not
speculate with the llrm.
Whether the long missing Fred
erick L. Col well, the governor's al
leged agent in his Wall transactions,
will also be calUd. was a subject of
much speculation Wednesday night.
His whereabouts have been known
to the governor's attorneys but they
have declined to produce him unless
it was stipulated that he would not be
placed under arrest for refusing to
obey a subpoena of the Frawley in
vestigating committee. This, counsel
for the impeachment managers said

mony. It is understood, will be highly
favorable to the governor.

Atty. -.Harvey P. Hindman will
make the address opening the gover
nor's case. It was chiefly because Mr.
Hindman. who has conducted most of
the eross examination, had become
exhausted that Judge P. Cady TWrlek
of the counsel of the defense asked
Wednesday that adjournment be taken
until Monday. This rciuest was de
nied by the court during an executive
The close of the case of assembly

elapse of two weeks since the trial
began and of six da.vs consumed In

not called. Roth wer- subpoenaed to

ber of the brokerage firm of Fuller &

No. 500" of Frederick L. Colwell.
Cray testified that Celwell had told
him this account was Gov. Sulzer's
Gray also said he had contributed

that no further effort would be made
to locate th "m.vsterious woman" in

S GIRL TO
Young Millionaire Who is Ac
cused of Attacking Bryn
Mawr Student Appears in
NEW YORK Oct. 2. When twenty-one-year-old
Herman Oelrichs, second
richest bachelor in America, was ar
raigned in Harlem police court Thurs
day, charged with stabbing Miss
Singleton during a quarrel in an au
tomobile, the case was continued until
Oct. 7, because the complainant was
too ill to appear. A physician's cer
tificate was presented to the court
saying that Miss Singleton must remain
In bed for several days.
Through his attorney, Oelrichs is
sued a statement to the public deny
ing the charge against him.
Mrs. Oelrich, mother of the pris
oner, and a sister of Mrs. William K.
Vanderbilt, jr., was not in court.
YORK. Oct. 2.
tives of the Oelrichs lamiiy made
lively efforts Thursday to have Miss
Lucile Singleton, a pretty 1 -year-old
Rryn Mawr student, drop the.
charge of felonious assault she, had
made against Herman Oelrichs. the
second richest bachelor in America,
and the boon companion of Cinccnt
After much contradiction and some
mystery, the original charge made by
Miss Singleton that she had been
stabbed during an automobile ride
was sustained. Although doctors
who attended her at the Knicker
bocker hospital declared that the in
juries were the result of an automo
bile accident, the girl's story convinc
ed the police and Oelrichs was ar
rested In Miss Singleton's apartments.
Later he was bailed out in the sum
of $5,000 by his mother, a sister of
Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt. jr.
Consequently Oelrichs was: at lib
erty pending his arraignment in Har
lem police court. According to Mis.s
Singleton, who is the daughter of a
wealthy mine owner in Texas, Martin
Taylor, a lawyer, offered her $100 if
she would withdraw "the charge
against Oelrichs. Rut she held out
for $5,000 .
Deputy Police Commissioner Dough
erty said that Miss Singleton would
be prevailed upon to prss the charge
"Because this young man is a multi
millionaire he should not be allowed
to escape if he really stabbed the
girl." said Mr. Dougherty.
The young woman said that she
knew Oelrichs as "Hilly Claghorn"
nnrt again she said she knew him as
Previously it had been said that she
knew the real identity of her com
panion. ouiiin t l ino v canon. i
The police were puzzled v the fact
that they could not find the weapon
with which the girl claimed to have
been slashed, but this was cleared up
when Miss Singleton said that, after
stabbing her with a weapon, like a
long needle, "her assailant parsed the
instrument to another man who was
seated in the tonneau of the car."
Deputy Commissioner Dougherty
said he knew the identity of this third
person and could arrest nib at any
time. He was reported to be a Co
lumbia university student.
It was said at th apartments of
Mis Singleton that she was suffering
severe pain, one wound having re
quired ten stitches. It- was further
declared that her condition was too
serious for her to come into court. In
this some connection a significant
statement was made by Atty. Chas.
"I do not think the young woman
will press hrr charge against Mr.
Oelrichs." said Strong." From what
I have learned the whole affair is the
result of an after dinner partv. As
a matter of fact there was no stab
bing." Detective Theodore P. Trayrr. who
first investigated the automobile ac
cident in which Oelrichs figured, im
mediately after the Ftabbing. has been
suspended because he reported that
