SULZER LIKELY TO

High Court of Impeachment
to Resume Trial of
DEALS IN STOCK RECITED
Prosocntlon Succeeds In Intro

Account Defense Summons
More Than 5 Witnesses.
ALB ANT. V. T.. Sept. 28. (Special.)
The trial of Mr. Sulzer before the
High Court of Impeachment will be re
sumed at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon,
and it la generally believed that the
coming week's sessions may suffice for
the presentation of all the prosecution's
Should Mr. Sulzer persist in his pur
pose to take the stand in his own be
half, however, the issue is not unlikely
to be protracted. That he will do so
Is now generally conceded.
Chester Piatt, the private secretary
of Mr. Sulzer. has made application to
the court for no less than SO blank
forms of subpenas with which to sum
The impeachment managers have suc
ceeded in placing in evidence contribu
tions aggregating not only the $5460
acknowledged in Mr. Sulzer's sworn re
port to the Secretary of State, not only
the additional items aggregating $8500
which were suppressed by Mr. Sulzer
as alleged in the formal articles of
Impeachment, but. under the court's
ruling permitting the widest latitude,
they have already increased the latter
figure to $18,200 in checks alone.
A complete chain of testimony estab
lishes the fact that Frederick E. Col
well, Mr. Sulzer's alleged Wall street
agent, paid to Boyer, Griswold & Co.,
in the purchase of 200 shares outright
of Big Four stock for immediate de
livery, the sum of $12,025.
Counsel for the impeachment man
agers expect to make good their prom
ise to show that, in addition to this
connection, there was a speculative ac
count on margins with Harris & Fuller,
brokers, and a further account for
stock purchases with Fuller & Gray.
It is charged that $10,000 went into the
Harris & Fuller account, and to Fuller
& Gray not less than $17,337.50. Of the
sums expended with these firms of
bankers and brokers, it is promised by
counsel, there will be documentary evi
dence to show that more than $40,000
was not in the form of checks, but in

ROME, Sept. 28. The condition of

However, Representative Smith was
Sot content to let the matter rest. He
secured documentary proof that Hall
continued to hold his job as tax col
lector, and demanded the reappointment
of Myer. Before this letter could be
acted on Hall telegraphed his resigna
tion to the Postoffice Department, and
three days after the resignation was
received, the Department wrote Repre
sentative Smith that It had notified
Hall he must either relinquish his Job
as tax collector or withdraw from the
postoffice. Mr. Smith then presented
Myer's bond to the Postmaster-General,
and again asked for his appointment.
Nothing was done in the case until Sep

When, eventually. Hall had to give
up the office because of the publicity
given the case by Representative Smith,
the Department refused again to ap
point Myer, notwithstanding his high
rating, above that of Mrs. Wells, and
actually appointed Mrs. Wells, who
had moved away from Idaho City, but
who. of course, will move back, now she
is postmaster. Had Mrs. Wells been a
Republican. Representative Smith firm
ly believes the office would have been
denied her as well as Myer. and an
other civil service examination would
have been ordered, so as to make legal
the appointment of a Democrat.

SOCIALISTS ARE DEFIANT
SEATTLE STREET SPEAKERS
WILL WIDEN" SCOPE.
Threatened Separate Jury Trials of
50 Accused Persons Would.
Swamp 'All Courts.
SEATTLE. Sept. 28. Further an
nouncements were made today at
meetings of Socialists that Injunctions
forbidding street speaking issued by
Superior Judge Humphries would be
set at naught in a campaign of open
air addresses which the Socialists' de
clarethey mean to inaugurate tomor
row. That the conflict of the Socialists
and those who oppose them will not
be confined to the Superior Court,
now clogged with 50 contempt cases
and with the near prospect of as many
more, was forecast last night, when
the police took a hand In the contro
versy by arresting two Socialist street
speakers. The two are Kate Sadler
and William McNally, both of whom
were released under bonds of $250 sev
eral days ago, when they were arrested
for contempt with & number of others
who had signed a petition defying Su
perior Judge Humphries.
These two will be arraigned In Po
lice Court tomorrow on charges of ob
structing trafflo In a public street.
After they were arrested last night,
bond in both cases was fixed at $10.
Both gave bond.
Following the announcement that
the 50 now under arrest for contempt
would demand Jury trials when their
cases are called before Judge Hum
phries, it was said today that the
defendants purpose also asking for
separate trials. This, it is said, would
swamp all departments of the Superior
Court for weeks, while. If more ar
rests are made by the police, and
Chief of Police Bannick has ordered
that traffic must not be interrupted
by street speakers, it will mean that
the Police Court also will be swamped
with the cases of street speakers.

FOR EVERY STATE
Major-General Would Have 48

OPPOSITION IS EXPECTED
Proposal Is That Regulars Would
Co-operate With MlHtia and
Add Materially to Fighting
Strength of Country.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash,
ington. Sept. 28. A regimental Army
post in every state n the Union is the
suggestion of a Major-General who has
been studying the military conditions
of the country and understands how
much political influence has to do with
shaping all governmental affairs.' There
la a suecrestion ot tne pora Darrei in
hn atfl.hli8hment of a military post In
overv state, but there are practical
considerations in the idea for training
not only the regulars, but also tne na
"I have devoted more than 40 years
to this sublect of Army improvements,
said the veteran General, "and while
we have made progress, it has been so
slow that we must turn our attention
to new methods and try a different
plan if substantial results are to be
Militia la Considered.
"In the first place, we know that the
militia must be considered in Army
matters. Every public man who talks
about Improving the conditions of the
Army and who acknowledges that we
are now wholly unprepared to meet
sudden emergency, falls back on the
statement that the militia should be
better trained and fitted as an aux
iliary to the regular establishment. Tne
militia is a strong political factor In
the states and Congressional districts.
It is here to stay. In this connection
I may say that the regular Army offl
cers are doing their best to improve
the militia and make it more erricient.
But we also want trained soldiers, men
who know how to take care of them
selves In camp, who can handle a gun
and who are ready to go into action as
soon as they are called out.
Kvery State Benefits.
"If one state is entitled to a mill
tary post and holds It because of the
influence of its delegation in Congress,
why should not every other state have
the same advantage, especially If it
will ultimately be for the general good
of the Army and of the National de
fense? Every Congressional district has
several public buildings: almost every
state benefits from the river and har
bor bill; every state will benefit from
the appropriations to be made by the
Federal Government for road improvements.
'In regard to these state regimental
posts I want to show that it Is not a
log-rolling, pork-barrel scheme, but
that it will result in a better Army
than we have now, an Army which can
be better trained and maneuvered than
under the present system.
"In the first place a regimental post
in each state will insure 48 regiments,
exclusive of the coast artillery and
troops needed in Panama, the Philip
pines. Hawaii and Alaska. That will
mean an increase, not sucn as neeoea.
but more than we can expect ir the
plan is not adopted.
State Grouped In Brigades.
"State posts should be located with
a view of making it easy to assemble
for the Summer camps, three regiments
from contiguous states for brigade
drills. We should go even further and
have the groups of posts so arranged
as to make it possible to bring to
gether several brigades and form a di
vision, the tactical unit of an Army.
For the most part the posts could be
located so that these brigades ano. 01-
visions can assemble by marching.
'Practice marches are taken every
year as a part of the training and with
regimental posts situated to the best
advantage we could, assemoie witn lit
tle cost the military unit necessary to
give the general and field officers as
well as the troops the training and ex
Derience necessary to make them ef
ficient. In addition to this, the troops
as a regiment, in the state post, would
have training they cannot now get
when scattered, as Is the case at pres
ent, in battalions and companies in
small posts widely separated."
