DOPF) IIKFORK THE BTTLE.
New York, Oct. 9. The rain had
ceased this morning and prospects for
fair weather. for the third game of the
world's baseball champlonsnlp im
proved; although the forecast was for
more rain. Followers of the Giants
were optimistic today. The wonder
ful pitching of Mathewson yesterday
and the fine way his mates rallied to
his support, with a crippled team,
worked wonders with the spirit of the
club's followers. On the other hand,
the Philadelphians were in no wise
dismayed by the defeat of their team
at Shibe park. McGraw said: "A-comparison
with what our opponents have
left, my remaining pitching staff looks
mighty good to me." - ' ;
"We are not a bit discouraged,' said
Manager Mack. I expect the Athletics
to win." It is not to be denied that
the crippling of Meyers and Merkle
and the inability of Snodgrass to play
his game is likely to prove a severe
handicap to the Giants.
GIANT STnEMiTH LESSENED.
Merkle started out to hit well in
the series and Is an experienced first
backer, which Wiltse is not. although
this fine fielding pitch gave a splen
did account of himself yesterday, sav
ing the game for the Giants by the
skillful handling of tape by Lapp and
Plank In the ninth. Altogether the
general batting and base running and
probably the defensive strength of the
Giants is lessened by inability of the
trio to play. Despite the crippled
team many close observers asserted the
Giants would have the advantage in
today's game in that McGraw had the
veteran Tesreau and Demaree to rely
upon, while Mack would probably be
forced to resort to colt twirlers.

Albany. N. Oct 9. Final argu
ments in the Sulzer impeachment trial
were begun today. Attorneys on each
side were alloted five hours. It is be
lieved that at the end of the arguments
Friday night court will adjourn Tues
day.
Without calling either Governor Sul
zer or his wife to the witness stand,
his counsel yesterday rested the de
fense in the trial of his impeachment.
According to D. Cady Herrick, chief of
hs attorneys. Governor Sulzer decided
not to defend himself in person be
cause he did not want to be placed in
the position of shielding himself be
hind his wife for it was for Mrs. Sul
zer, according to .the testimony, that
the governor had his Wall street deal
ings. ' Herrick said that the governor had
heard from many quarters, including
Washington, that "any man who would
shield himself behind his wife ought to
be removed."
Tomorrow and Friday will be de
voted to summing up the case by the
opposing counsel. . Monday next being
a holiday, adjournment . probably will
be taken to Tuesday, when it is ex
pected, the verdict on the governor's
guilt or innocence will be reached.
PICTURED A MARTYR.
Friends of the governor pictured hlmi
as a man who had martyred himself,
for the sake of bis. wife. B.eirAc jogUU,
ed ontwf-thBwtiiapny of Allan A.
Ryan, that Sulzer did not wish to draf
his wife into the else si disclosed
the reason why the governor had not
taken the standi . .
,The suddea closing of the case for
the defense created a sensation. Gov
ernor Sulzer had said he would posi
tively testify and tell un "astounding
story," that would force Charles F.
Murphy, leader of Tammany hall, to
PO. A. E. take the stand in his defense also.

He finally yielded, it was said, (o the
advice of his attorneys.
In preparing for this story as well as
that expected from Mrs. Sulzer, coun
sel for the impeachment managers
had In reserve half or a docen more
witnesses whom they had expected
to put on in rebuttal. Two of these
witnesses were called before coart ad
journed yesterday, . but Judge Cnllen
excluded their testimony. They were
George W. Egbert, a bank examiner,
in charge of the books of the defunct
Carnegie Trust company, and James
C. Miller, an official of the Fifth Ave
nue Bank of New York. Egbert was
ready to give evidence, Attorney Kres
el said, that would controvert the testi
mony that Mrs. Sulser had an account
in the Carnegie Trust company, or that
the company had loaned the governor
money on securities, owned by her and
deposited in that institution.
By Mr. Miller, Kresel continued,
the managers proposed to show that
Mrs. Sulser had an account in the
Fifth aveuue bank, "during the cam
paign of 1912." He learned later,
out of court, that Mrs. Sulzer's bal
ance in this institution totaled "about
$200 early in October, 1912. and that
it had increased to more than $4,000
by the end of the succeeding month
Judge Cullen held that the intro
duction of 'their testimony would "In
iect new evidence and reopen the
case."
The closing of the taking of testi
mony by the defense, which began
only Tuesday morning, was announced
by Herrick immediately after Judge
Cullen had refused to admit into evi
dence a story of allege rt.l involv
ing Duncan W. Peck, superintendent
of public works, who testified early in
the trial that Governor Sulzer had
asked him to deny under oath that he
had made a $500 campaign contribu
tion. This story, counsel announced,;
they proposed to prove through John
A. Hennessy, Governor Sulzer's special
i investigator and personal friend, who
was called to the stand.
Judge Cullen refused to admit evi
dence "to show that Duncan W. Peck,
when he went on the witness stand,
I knew that an investigation of his de
partment w as being made, that frauds
were being discovered therein, and
that if the respondent remained in of
fice Peck must go." He likewise shut
out testimony by Hennessy to "prove
that Sulser has been a good governor."
The exclusion of this testimony prac
tically placed the crux of the gover-
! nors defense on the story of Louis A.

jsuined the blame for Use gover
