his sixth Merchants and Manufacturers
stake yesterday when after five hard
fought heats he landed Reusens victor
in the classic race. Tenara, the Ken
tucky mare, winner this year of three

rific rushes of Geers' gelding, and after
taking first place m two heats was un
able to do better than second.

win from Santos Maid by halt a length
Judson Girl and Reusens finished noses
apart four lengths behind. Tenara re
peated in the second heat but won with
less effort at the end when both Judson
Girl and Santos Maid, who had been
contenders all the w-ay, lost their stride
within 100 yards of the finish. Kcusens
broke at the far turn and was a poor
sixth at the end of the mile.
The excitement came in the next heat,
Tenara and Judson Girl were half a
dozen lengths ahead of the field from

Diggs Trial.
San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 14. Marsha
Warrington continued to be the chief
witness yesterday jn the trial of the
government's case against Maury I.
Diggs, former state architect of Cali
fornia, charged, under the Mann act with
having transported her from Sacramento
to Reno for immoral purposes.
She picked up the unfinished story of
her intimacy with the defendant and
carried it through to the end. Diggs,
she said, had induced her to leave home
against her wishes and judgment. It
was he who had bought her transporta
tion on their trip to Reno, which had
rot been merely an episode in a platonic
During the cross-examination, Diggs
prompted questions of his attorneys and
steadily kept his eyes on the girl's face,
hut she as constantly avoided his gaze.
The story Lola N orris will tell was
foreshadowed when Miss Warrington tes
tified that she and Diggs had been com
panions of Caminetti and Miss Norris
on various trips to San Francisco, Stock
ton and San Jose, where they had reg
istered under false names as married
couples, , ' . . , :
Before concluding her testimony on di

Right Side Up.
Weetfield, N. Y., Aug. 14. Three per
sons were killed and two injured last
night when a large touring car got be
yond control on a steep hill between
Mavville and Westfield.
The dead are: The Rev. Peter C. Bom-
mer, pastor of the German Evangelical
church of Buffalo; Mrs. Bommer and
Miss Alice Pagels of No. 275 Avenus A.,
The injured: Miss Louise Bommer,

Mr. Bommer was president of the
oung People's league of the German
Evangelical synod of North America.
He visited Chautauqua with his family
yesterday and was returning to Buffalo
when the accident occurred.
Miss Winnie Button, the daughter of
a farmer, was the only eyewitness, She
said that one of the rear tires blew out
just as the machine turned the crest of
the hill. Mr. Bommer, who was at the
wheel, seemed to be unable to check the
speed of the car as it dashed down the
steep incline, careening from side to side.
Some of the occupants jumped, Miss
Button thought, and the others were
thrown out by the violent swaying of
the machine.
When the car camo to a standstill at
the foot of the hill it was turned com
pletely around, but did not overturn.

the detective was equally as reticent.
Lit is understood the detective and serv

From Healy's Restaurant in New York
City This Morning.
New. York,. Aug. 14. Carrying out
Mayor Gaynor's curfew order directing
that all places where liquor is served
shall close at one o'clock in the morning,
police reserves for the fourth time this
week visited Thomas Healey's restau
rant an hour after midnight this morn
ing and ejected the patrons. District At
torney Whitman was among those
thrown out.
The police made their visit, notwith
standing the announcement of a police
magistrate yesterday that warrants
charging oppression and assault would
be issued against the police if they
again invaded Healy's. The police were
believed to be acting with the mayor s
knowledge and consent.
When Inspector Dwyer and a "strong
arm" squad arrived they were surprised
to find Mr. Whitman in the restaurant.
After the patrons 150 in number, and
including 35 women, had been put out,
the prosecutor announced that he would
seek warrants in the morning. Shortly
after this Dwyer ordered Whitman to
leave the restaurant. A moment later
the inspector apologized to the prosecut
or who refused to accept the apology.
uwyer men ordered reporters who were
talking with the prosecutor to be
thrown out. The police in carrying out
this order rushed the prosecutor out
upon the sidewalk.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 14. The complex
machinery of state government, over
wnion Dotn William Sulzer and Martin
H. MeGlynn claimed authority, bade fair
to-aay to De thrown out of crear bv the
rival attempts to direct it. The heads
of many departments divided into tw
groups, one under the leadership of Sul
zer, adhering to his contentions that his
impeachment yesterday was unconstitu
tional and prepared to continue in obedi
ence to his instructions as if there had
been no impeachment; the other holding

the Senate received the articles of im
peachment, marshaled under the stand
ard of Glynn, ready to carry out his
oraers ana ignore any which the jm
peached governor might see fit to issue.
Never in the history of the state has
its army of employes Been more demor
alized. The great seal of the state of
New York was still in the possession this
forenoon of Governor Sulzer, notwith
standing the claim of his opponents that
it legany passed into the custody of the
neuienani-governor yesterday.
Although Sulzer and counsel nlanned
to ignore the impeachment formally for
a time on ine ground of unconstitution
ality, the governor will make a spirited
defense before the court of impeachment
which meets September 18. The govern
or's wife, the star, witness for the de
fense, was seriously ill at the executive
mansion to-day.
As soon as the articles of impeach
ment, adopted at an early hour vester
day morning by the Democratic majority
in the assembly, were presented to the
Senate shortly after 3 o'clock in the aft
ernoon, Lieutenant Governor Martin H,
Glynn announced his intention of occu
pying the executive chamber.
Friends of Governor Sulzer declared
that the governor intended to continue
in office and use every weapon in his
power to maintain his position on the
ground that the assembly bad no eon
stitutional right to, consider impeach
ment at its extraordinary session.
Some asserted that the governor would
go as far as to summon military pro
tection if necessary to prevent the lieu
tenant governor Jrom occupying the ex
ecutive chamber.
Judge D-Cady Herrick, who will act
as chief counsel for the governor at his
trial, said that "talk of resort of force
is the merest rot."
''He will meet the charges against him
in an orderly and dignified way," said
Judge licrrtcK, "and will do nothing un
becoming the dignity of the state. He
will engage in no physical scramble to
assert his rights to discharge the func
tions pertaining to the office of gov
"Counsel for Governor Sulzer." said
Judge Herrick last night, "have no de
sire to be interviewed or try th mer
its or nis case in the newspapers or
nave no desire to make statements in his
behalf. They have advised the cov
ernor to refrain from making any state
ment at the present time, likewise his
wile. We have engaged in his defense,
not for Wlilliam Sulzer, but as a pro
fessional duty to the governor of the
state, and to preserve, so far as it can
now be preserved, the good name and
fame of the state.
"After an examination of Mr. Sulzer
in relation to the transactions disclosed
by the Frawley committee, we are satis
fied that there has been only a partial
revelation of the facts so far, and we
are satisfied that he has been guilty of
no wuiui wrong doing. W e ask the
public, in his belialf, for a suspension
of judgment, until all the facts can be
disclosed before the proper tribunal, and
in an orderly way."
Impeachment Read To Senate.
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
Senate met and 15 minutes later the
committee of managera, in whom is en
trusted the duty of prosecuting the trial,
were solmenly ushered into the Senate
chamber.. They stood in the center aisle
while Assemblyman Lvy, in dramatic
tones, read the eight long articles of im
peachment, consuming fully half an hour.
The senators listened, lolling in their
seats with seeming indifference. Most
of them had already read the articles in
the early editions of the evening news
papers. In the galleries throngs of spec
tat irs, more than half of, whom were
women, watched the proceedings with
eager attention.
Senator Wagner, majority leader and
president pro tem of the Senate, then de
a mill, took occasion to deny Teports
that the purpose of his call on the gov
ernor yesterday was to ask him not to
expose his legislative career.
"Ves, I visited Governor Sulzer yester
day," said Senator Frawley, "and will
visit him every day he i here. 'My visit
yesterday was purely out of friendship
and my friendship for Governor Sulzer
has not changed one iota even in the
darkest moments. I had a duty to per
form to my colleagues in the legisla
ture and that is what my committee at
tempted to do, be eminently fair in every
respect, and I feel that they have carried
it out to the letter.
"Now as far as myself appealing to
anybody for protection or for the hiding
of anything that has occurred during my
legislative career, let me state now that
I have no such fears, whether from Gov
ernor Sulzer, John A. Hennessy or any
other man in this state.
"I think some time ago," Mr. Presi
dent, that a similar misstatement was
made in reference to my appearance
before the governor in asking him to
protect me. I didn't make that request
then nor do I now. I state to the mem
bers of this Senate that I have no fear
from anybody within the confines of this
state or any other state as to my ca
reer in the legislative halls. That I
called yesterday on the governor to make
a personal appeal to save me is an ab
solute untruth."
Senator Frawley was followed by Sen
ator Elon Brown of Watertown, Repub
lican leader, who presented thfe argument
that the governor is no longer entitled
to remain m office.
"For hundreds of years," he said, "the
meaning of impeachment has been well
settled and understood. Impeachment
consists in the action taken by the as
sembly, together with a presentation
of the charges or articles of impeach
ment, to the Senate. It is doubtful if
the presentation of those charges is es
sential to the impeachment itself as de
scribed in the section which I have just
"It is now reported about the capitol
that the governor will refuse to recog
nise the provisions of section 6, article
4 ,of the constitution suspending his
power as governor and that the powers
and duties of governor now rest in the
lieutenant governor. It is a matter of
the highest importance to this state that
a chief executive universally recognized
by the people of the state as
such, be acting as governor without ees
sation, and I desire to,, call the attention
of the legislature to this situation at
this time in order that it may be in a
position, if any contingency shall arise,
to use its power to, the maintenanee
and continuance of a ingle recognized
government in this state, and 1 hope
that nothing will be done by the present
governor, under existing conditions, to
add to the peril to wbjch the state has
already been brought through the mat
ters which have been presented to the
Senate this afternoon. ;
The Senate then adjourned until Aug,
19. The Assembly tneanwhile, after
transacting only routine business, ad
journed until the same date.
Mrs. Sulzer la Hysterical.
Mrs. Sulzer was in the care of physi
cians last night and was said to be in a
complete state of collapse as the result
of the strain to which she has been sub
jected since the exposure of the Frawley
committee. Silence also will be the pol
icy of the governor until he appears at
the bar of the court of impeachment.
Mrs.. Sulzer s condition became so se
rious in the night that Governor Sulzer
wired to New York for a specialist on
nervous diseases. The governor then
told his advisors, it was said by those
who claimed to have knowledge of what
transpired at the night conference, that
under no circumstances would he allow
Mrs. Sulzer to testify at the trial. It
was said on the other hand that Mrs.
Sulzer insisted hysterically that she be
allowed to testify in her husband's behalf.

Death came unexpectedly to David T.
Jameson as he crossed the floor of the
kitchen at his home, 92 Maple avenue,
this morning at 9 o'clock. A physician
who was called while Mrs. Jameson was
applying every known household remedy
in a futile effort to revive her husband,
said that death was due to cerebral hem
orrhage. Mr. Jameson arose at the usual
hour this morning and went about the
duties which he was accustomed to per
form after breakfast. He did not com
plain of feeling ill and around 8 o'clock .
he went into the garden to pick some
peas for a neighbor." It was after he
had returned to the house that he start
ed across the kitchen, only to fall sud
denly. He expired instantly, it is be
lieved. Since a serious attack of pneumonia
which threatened his life a year ago, Mr.
Jameson had been subject to occasional
heart pains. A week ago he underwent
a minor operation on his face, but that is
not thought to have been a contributing
cause of his death.

sisters, Mfss Susan Jameson and Mrs.

ried in Barre to Sarah D. Pitkin of
Marshfield, Elder Bliss of the Universal
ist church performing the wedding cere
mony. The deceased had lived in Jtiarre
for many years, although fifteen years
of his life were spent in Washington. A
farmer for some time prior to moving
to this city, he afterwards took up gar
dening. Many will recall that he was
only lately engaged in sodding down the
city park and the grounds at the new
federal building. He had not been active
in his line since then. Mr. Jameson was
affiliated with the Univcrsalist church.
