IN NEW YORK FIGHT Hennessy and Su&er Keep Up * Attack on Tammany and McCall. MITCHEL IS ASSAILED BY ENEMIES^ OF FUSION Deposed Governor Tells of Of fers Sent to Albany by Murphy. NEW YORK, Oct. 30.—The political fight in New York city reached a climax of bitterness today following charges and counter-charges made In speeches Iasi night. John A. Hennessy, Governor Sui ter’s graft investigator, whose speeches for the Fusion ticket, headed by John Plirroy Mltchel, have been a striking feature of the campaign, kept up his attacks on Tammany Hall and Edward E. McCall, the Tammany nominee for mayor, laying stress in his talks last night on charges of hnrfe ceeol graft by which he declared Tammany benefit ed. Former Judge McCall, who spoke In several places in Manhattan and once in Brooklyn, attacked Mltchel for his former connection as counsel for a corporation. New Charges by Nnlzer. Sulzer’s latest charges against Mur phy are published today in a copy righted interview given to James Creclman. of the New York Evening Mall. In part this follows: "It is hard to put in words a sense of the power with which Governor Sulzer told me the story of how Mr. McCall, now the Tammany candidate for mayor, struggled with him in the stately executive mansion at Al bany in an effort to serve the brutal master of Tammany Hall. "And the most astonishing thing about it all was Mr. Sulzer's charge that Mr. McCall wanted him to stop Mr. Hennessy’s official investigation of wholesale frauds and graft in the great State departments in order to please Mr. Murphy and secure for himself the nomination for chief Judge •f the Court of Appeals. "Mr. Hennessy, the governor’s graft-hunting assistant, was present all through Mr. Sulzer’s amazing de scription of his dealings with Mr. McCall. "One day, in June. I think it was,” said Mr. Hennessy, “Mrs. Sulzer told mo In the executive mansion that a great friend had come up from New York and had told her and the gov ernor that I was the cause of all the governor's troubles with ’the organi zation.’ By that time I had worked pretty deep into the Tammany rob beries committed in State road con struction in many counties. "The very next day I went to the governor and. asked him about it, and he admitted that Judge McCaJl was the friend who had made that state ment. I told the governor that if I was standing in his way I would cheerfully get out. He took me by the hand and said, ‘John, keep on going after the grafters. That’s what I want. Stay where you are.’ ” “I remember it well,” said Mr. Sulzer, nodding his head. "It was Judge McCall himself wlro came up from Mr. Murphy to get me to call off Mr. Hennessy. McCall Said to Have Threatened. "Judge McCall did all he could to induce me to stop the graft investi gations. He said to me: ‘Unless you •top they will throw you out of of fice. These men will stop at nothing. They can do anything. Why, they are so organized and so skillful that they could blacken the character of the Archangel Michael himself.’ ” "The investigations that I had started made it certain that a good many prominent Tammany men would probably go to prison. Mr. Murphy was desperate in his anxiety to save them from punishment. Judge McCall put It to me that it was my own interest to stop Mr. Hennessv from going any further.” The $25,000 campaign contribution from Anthony N. Brady, traction magnate, now dead, first offered to and declined by William Sulzer when he was running for governor last year, and then given to Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall, who declared that he returned it to Brady, remained a moot point of dis cussion. Support was given Murphy's declaration that he returned the money to Brady by a statement from former Judge Samuel A. Beardsley, i who originally took the $25,000 from Brady to Sulzer and on the latter's refusal to accept it handed it to Mur phy. Brady’* $25,000 (.1ft. Beardsley In his statement yester day. without mentioning Murphy's name, said that "a campaign contri bution of 525,000 made by Mr. Brady In the campaign of 1912 was subse quently returned to him.” Hennessy in one of his speeches last night challenged Beardsley to furnish proof that Murphy gave back the 525,000 and declared that Beards ley could not and would not attempt to prove any such thing through the Brady estate. Testimony to support the authen ticity of a letter written last summer from Sing Sing by ex-Senator Ste phen J. Stilwell, a convict, asking the then Governor Sulzer for a par don in return for an exposure of "bcss rulA' in New York city, was given by Colonel William H. Amory, - who carried the pardon application to Albany. Stilwell had declared the published version was garbled. Colo nel Amory declared the letter as made public was exactly as it was originally written. “Stilwell had the goods on certain senators,” Amory asserted. Stllwell’s alleged disclosures against Tammany legislators and others and his reported willingness to make more under certain condi tions have figured largely in Hen nessy’s recent campaign speeches. Whitman Demand* Book. Stilwell’s reputed confession, said to be contained in a “little black book-,” in possession of Hennessy, will bn turned over to District Attorney Whitman today, according to a state ment by Hennessy, who was a wit ness aguin yesterday in the prosecu tor's investigation of' campaign IS CHILD CROSS, I Look, Mother! If tongue Is coated, give “California Syrup of Figs.” Children love this "fruit laxative,’’ and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely. A child simply will not stop playing to empty the bowels, and the result is, they become tightly clogged with waste, liver gets sluggish, stomach sours, then your little one becomes cross, half-sick, feverish, don’t eat, sleep or act naturally, breath is bad, system full of cold, lias sore throat, stomach-ache or diarrhoea. Listen, Mother! See if tongue is coated, then give a teaspoonful of "California Syrup of Figs," and in a few hours all the constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out of the system, and you have a well, playful child again. Millions of mothers give "California Syrup of Figs” because, it 1b perfectly harmless: children love It. and It never fails to act on the stomach, liver and bowels. A"k your druggist for a 50-cent bot tle of “California Syrup of Figs,” which has full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grown ups plainly printed on the bottle. Be ware of counterfeits sold here. Get the genuine made by "California Fig Syrup Company.” Refuse any other kind wltii contempt. charges made by Hennessy in speeches against the candidacy of McCall, Tammany's nominee for ma^or. Mr. Whitman's inquiry will result in grand jury proceedings if the dis trict attorney uncovers evidence which he believes will warrant them. The City Economy League, organ ized with "economy and efficiency versus extravagance and waste,” as itB slogan, found its ranks split yes terday on the question of advocating the election of McCall. The league some time ago voted to support the election of McCall, but to support also several of the Fusion nominees for other1 offices. Yesterday the secre tary of the organization, F. H. Ty ler, resigned, announcing opposition to McCall In view of recently made campaign charges against him and his replies to them, and the league voted not to send out any more Mc Call literature. The league was said to control 20,000 votes. Congressmen (live Dinner. The Democratic representatives in Congress from New York city gave a dinner last night to their party can didates on the municipal ticket. Ed ward E. McCall and Representative Herman A. Metz, who is the Tain many candidate for comptroller, were among the guests. Charles F. Mur phy sat near Representative John J. Fitzgerald, who was toastmaster. The diners cheered McCall, who left the dinner early to make his cam paign tour. Mltchel replied late last night to McCall’s speech regarding the Fusion nominee's former connection with the Queenahot'ough corporatloii. He said the bonds were placed on sale on the basis of the value of the property before the subway route was award ed. Fees for his services abroad were contingent upon his success in float ing the bond issue, salt! Mltchel, and in no event could have amounted to the sum mentioned by McCall. Regarding his vote for the subway award. Mltchel said the Queensbor ougli corporation was against the transit plan his vote favored. His votes at all times in the city’s sub way situation were uninfluenced by any private interest, he asserted. Metz Tells Story of Confab at Delmonico’s to Pick Candidates NEW YSRK, Oct. 20.—“It’s about time somebody told the truth about that dinner at Delmonico’s,” said Herman A. Metz yesterday, applying all the well-known Metz emphasis. Mr. Metz had just been asked if he had been present at the famous Del monico meeting of August 21, follow ing which It was announced that Mayor Gaynor had been turned down by Murphy and tils advisers. "Certainly I was there,” declared Mr. Metz. "I have never denied It. I am not ashamed of the fact. Wliat's more, it is not news, because the fact was published the next day.” Representative William M. Calder announced Metz’s presence at the meeting us a bit of news In a speech In Flat bush, and a search of news paper flies yesterday did not reveal a statement to the effect that Metz w as one of the men who sut around the table. Mayor Gaynor was not turned down at that conference, notwith standing all reports that he -was." said Mr. Metz. “No decision was reached that night. The mater was not de cided until ,a day or two later. The question dismissed was whether we should nominate Mayor Gaynor or nominate an organization man. “Just why I was invited to be present T don't know. I'm not a leader. I suppose they wanted to get my Judgment in the matter, and they got it. “I told them that I was in favor of nominating an organization man, a man who would continue to be for the organization after he was elected mayor. I said it would be better to have an organization, even if we got beaten, than not to have an organiza tion. I believe in the Democratic or ganization. “Murphy was for Gaynor at that dinner. So was Tom Smith, secretary to Die organization. No decision was arrived at 'that night. “So far as Judge McCall is con cerned, he was not at the dinner him self. He was only at the meeting for a short time, and did not take part in the general conference.” Deeds, Indeed? Lord Barrenhurst—You must bear in mind, Gwendolen, that we of the robllity must do nothing unworthy of the deeds of our noble ancestors. Lady Barrenhurst (nee Gotrox, of New York)—Deeds of your ancestors? Indeed: How’d you live if it wasn’t for the mortgages of mine?—Puck. THE DEMAND -r- - IS FOR GOLD BRACELETS!
