SULZER FIGHTS TO
REMAIN IN OFFIGE
Authority of Special
CLASH IS EXPECTED TODAY
Lieutenant - Governor Glynn
Ready to Take Office.
TALK OF FORCE IS HEARD
Governor's Attorneys Say, However,
There Will Be No Resort to Un
dignified Procedure Sirs.
ALBANY, N. T.. Aug. 13. With Gov
ernor Sulzer impeached by the House
of Representatives and the date of his
trial before the Senate and the judges
of the Court of Appeals fixed for Sep
tember 18. the spectacle was presented
tonight of two men claiming to be
Governor of the State of New York.
As soon as the articles of impeach
ment, adopted early this morning by
the Democratic majority in the As
sembly, were presented to the Senate,
shortly after 3 o'clock today, Lieutenant-Governor
Glynn announced his in
tention of occupying the executive
Governor to Make Fight.
Friends of Governor Sulzer said that
the Governor intended to continue In
office and would use every weapon In
his power to maintain his position, on
the ground that the Assembly had no
Constitutional right to consider im
peachment at its extraordinary ses
sion. Some asserted that the Governor
would go so far as to summon military
protection if necessary to prevent the
lieutenant-governor from occupying
the executive chamber.
T. Cady Herrick. who will act as
chief counsel for the governor at his
trial, said tonight that "talk of resort
to force is the merest rot."
Dignified Ileply Promised.
"lie will meet the charges against
him in -an arderlj- and dignified way,"
said the lawyer, "and will do nothing
unbecoming the dignity of the state.
He will engage in no physical scram
ble to assert his rights to discharge
the functions of the office of Gover
nor." The Governor himself was silent.
When he left his office in the capitol
at 6 o'clock tonight, where he had been
closeted the entire day, he was asked
if he expected to return tomorrow.
"Yes, sir'ee." he replied in angry
So far as could be learned, no at
tempt was made by Lieutenant-Governor
Glynn in any way to exercise
the functions of chief executive today,
but there was every indication that
there would be a clash of authority
tomorrow when both men appear at
" I . Supreme." Snya Glynn.
The lieutenant-governor would not
Indicate tonight what action he hoped
to take, except to say. "There will be
no circus or military maneuvers about
occupying the executive chambers; the
law is supreme."
The inaction of Lieutenant-Governor
Glynn was in the face of arguments
expressed both in the Senate and In
the Assembly today that at the mo
ment the articles of Impeachment were
presented to the Senate Governor Sul
zer automatically ceased to be chief
executive. This contention was based
on an article in the Constitution,
which says that "in case of Impeach
ment of the Governor, the powers and
duties of the office shall devolve
upon the Lieutenant-Governor." It
was held by the leaders that the word
"impeachment" corresponded with the
word "indictment" In a criminal trial,
and that, therefore. In the meaning of
the Constitution the Governor already
stood impeached, even though not yet
convicted, and was, therefore, not now
eligible to hold his office.
Court to Be Called On.
These arguments were placed before
the Lieutenant-Governor by the Dem
ocratic leaders early In the day, but
Governor Sulzer was not molested. A
few minutes after the Governor left
his office Patrick E. McCabe. clerk
of the Senate, appeared at the execu
tive chamber with a copy of the ar
ticles of Impeachment and a summons
and complaint which he intended to
serve on the Governor. When notified i
by the Governor's secretary that he !
had missed the Governor by scarcely
a minute. McCabe asked for an appoint
ment tomorrow. Secretary Piatt re
plied that the Governor would be at
the executive chamber at 11 o'clock
It teemed practically certain tonight
that the Governor and Lieutenant
Governor would both resort to legal
tests of their respective claims in the
courta. which. In the history of the
New York State, have never been
called on to hand down an opinion
which would act as a precedent.
On leaving the executive chamber
the Governor went for a short auto
mobile ride and then returned to the
executive mansion, where he was In
consultation until a late hour with his
advisers. P.esldes D. Cady Herrick, it
waa announced that his attorneys.' at
the trial would be Irving G. Yatin, of
Syracuse: Louis Marshall .ind Austin

Fair Sex Guardians of Law in San
Francisco Will Take Orders From
Commission, Not From Chief.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13. (Special.)
The Supervisors and Civil Service
Commission have been advised of the
name and the duties of San Francisco's
The Police Commission in two docu
ments sets forth these details and all
that remains now is for approval and
the enactment of a new law. The new
name, if the Police Commission is
heeded, will be "Women Protective
Officers" and not "Police Protective
Women," as the law now says, or
"Social Service Inspectors," as the
Civil Service Commission had recom
mended. The name having been set
tled, the Police Commissioners have
fixed the qualifications and duties to
be as follows:
The women must be citizens of the
United States, not less than 21 nor more
than 35 years old; must be residents
of the city for at least five years next
preceding their appointment; must
pass satisfactory physical examination
showing them to be in sound condition.
The duties are to serve at ferries,
trains and steamboat terminals, sta
tions, landings and at all public parks;
answer inquiries, give directions and
information, escort and accompany
female prisoners, attend on the juvenile
court and perform such other police
duties as may be assigned to them
by the Board of Police Commissioners
or the chief.
The Police Commission Itself can
give them orders, whereas with the
male policemen the orders must come
down through their superior officers.
The letter to the Civil Service Com
mission says that the name "Women
Protective Officers," now finally hit
on, is "both dignified and appropriate."

correct and tonight the dismissal of
Ambassador Wilson by summary ac
ceptance of his resignation, to take

Commission this morning refused to
ratify Mayor Seymour's appointment of
Miss Marjorle D. Johnson as a suc

food inspector, who was recently ap

The Mayor argued that a woman !s

DETAILS OF AFFAIR
WITH DIGGS BARED
Episode Not Platonic,
Merely Says Girl.
JUDGE ADMONISHES JURY
Story Told by Marsha War
rington Is Unshaken.
DIGGS . PROMPTS LAWYERS
Defense Seeks to Widen 2 0-Year-Old
Witness' Admissions of Immoral
Life, but Names of Other
Men Are Not Allowed.
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 13. Marsha
Warrington continued to be the chief
and almost the only witness heard to
day in the trial of the Government s
case against Maury I. Diggs, ex-Stat
Architect of California, charged under
the Mann act with transporting her
from Sacramento to Reno for immoral
She picked up the unfinished story ot
her intimacy with the defendant and
carried it through from beginning -to
end. lowering her eyes at times, hang
ing her head, and dropping her voice
almost to a whisper, but never falter
ing in her answers.
Other Men's Names Barred.
Indeed, there was no attempt to
shake her narrative on cross-examination.
The defense sought to widen her
admissions of immorality and drew
from her the dates, places of other
lapses with the defendant, but efforts
to bring in the names of other men
were disallowed. When she left the
stand, still subject to further examina
tion tomorrow, her story remained un
changed. Diggs, she said had induced
her to leave home against her wishes
and judgment. It was he who had
bought her transportation, and their
trip to Reno had not been merely an
episode in Platonic friendship.
During the cross-examination Diggs
constantly prompted the questions of
his attorneys and steadily kept his
eyes on the girl's veiled face, but she
as constantly avoided his gaze.
Jurors Are Admonished.
The courtroom was somewhat
startled In the afternoon session by ad
monitions of the Judge to the jury that
the case must not be discussed by the
jurors, particularly with any friend of
Diggsr of Drew Caminettl, co-defendant
in another case on a like indict
ment. The emphasis with which the caution
was repeated by Judge Van Fleet gave
rise to Inquiries which he would-tiot
satisfy. He refused absolutely to dis
cuss his reasons, and Theodore Roche,
who has thus far conducted the Gov
ernment's case, would be Jio more spe
cific, although he did say that there
was reason for the court's order.
The story Lola Norris would tell was
foreshadowed lightly when Miss War
rington testified that she and Diggs
had been companions of Caminettl and
Miss Norris on various trips to San
Francisco, Stockton and San Jose,
where they had registered under falsa
names as married couples.
Scandal Stories Denied.
Two minor witnesses the managing
editor of a Sacramento newspaper, and
the probation officer of Sacramento
County denied that there had been any
scandal connected with the names of
the four on the point of exploding into
print, or that arrests were impending
if they remained in Sacramento. Miss
Warrington has testified that Diggs
had told her snch was the case, and
this fear had been her prime motive on
leaving her home.
On cross-examination Attorney Cogh
"Isn't It a fact that the first sugges
tion about this trip to Reno came from
"No, it is not," she answered. "Mr.
Diggs first suggested it and said we
would have to go immediately to avoid
exposure avoid arrest and trouble
with the Juvenile Court authorities. 1
don't .remember Mr. Caminetti everjsay
ing anything at any time until Mr.
Diggs had said it first."
"Isn't it true that Mr. Diggs told you
he was going away alone because of
trouble with his wife and business
Infatuation Is Admitted.
"No. When he proposed going he said
1 would have to go with him."
"Were you infatuated with Mr. Diggs
at that time?"
The witness hesitated as she
answered: "Yes, sir, I was."
"Then, isn't that the. reason you left
with him? Didn't .you say that if ha
went you would go also?"
"I did not say that- I did not want
to go. He had caused me to be afraid
of the juvenile authorities, but 1
wanted to stay. I would rather have
faced the scandal that he told me would
be in the newspapers. When he made
np his mind to go he said I must go
along with him."
"Why didn't you take that first train
for Reno that Sunday night, as you had
"Because Mr. Digs hadn't bought the
tickets then. Mr. Caminetti. who had
gone for the money, hadn't returned
by the time the train left. He got back
in time for the midnight train, and
then Mr. Diggs bought the tickets."
