Interest Runs High on Sulzer Impeachment; Sentiment
Favors Governor Because Tammany Pushes Case
Sulzer the Eighth.
Seven other governors in the United
States have faced impeachment pro
ceedings. These men and the results
tliHt followed were:
Onarles Kobiuyou, Kansas, 1S62, ac
quitted. Harrison Reed, Florida, 1SCS,

Adelln-rt Ames, Mississippi, 1S76, ro-higned.
All any, N. Y., tept. 13. As the im-ptachin-'nt
prooeedinpa against Gov
eruor Sulzer draw ucarer, public in
terest grows intense. Since the fight
asain.it Sul.ier is being carried on ly
Tammany hall. Sulzer finds public
sympathy in his favor. Although the
legislature is controlled by Tammany,
the Tammany Ptrrngth in the senate
is not sufficient to remove the gov
ernor unless the charges against him
are substantiated.
Sulzer has employed some of the
very ablest lawyers in the state of
New York to defend his case. Among
them is William T. Jerome, former
district attorney la New York city.
Sulzer undoubtedly will make the fight
of his life. Chief Justice Cullen of the
New York court of appeals, whose fair
ness is unquestioned, will preside at
the trial.
Stripped of their legal verbiage, the
articles of impeachment against Gov
ernor Sulzer are as follows:
1. That Governor Sulzer, in filing
his statement of campaign expenses,
set forth that his entire receipts were
$.".400 and his expenditures $7,724:
lsl,jthat this statement "was false and!
w as intended by him to be false"; that !
his list of receipts failed to. include
eleven specific contributions, ranging
in amount from $100 to $2,500.
2. That Governor Sulzer attached
to his statement of campaign expenses
an affidavit declaring that the state
meet was "a full and detailed state
ment of all moneys received or con
tributed or expended by him directly
or indirectly." That this affidavit
"was false and was corruptly made by
him," and that h was "guilty of will
ful and corrupt perjury.'
3. That Governor Sulier "was
guilty of mal and corrupt conduct in
his office as governor and w-as guilty
of bribing witnesses." The specific
charge is that while the Frawley com
mittee was investigating the govern
or's campaign accounts he "fraudu
lently induced" three witnesses (his
campaign manager, a personal friend
and a stock broker) "to withhold their
testimony from said committee."
4. Tbat the governor was guilty of
"suppressing evidence" in violation of
; fraud and; used threats and menaces
i with intent to prevent the Frawley
committee from procuring the attend
; ance aud testimony of certain wit
! nesses."
1 5. That the governor was guilty of
sessions of the Frawley committee.
The witness referred to is Frederick
L. Colweil, alleged to have- acted as
Suiter's agent in certain stock trans
actions. '
6. That prior to his election the

pose of affecting the vote or political
