Governor and His Wife Both
Expected to Take Witness
Stand in Defense.
COLWELL STiLL MYSTERY
Man Who Handled "Account o.
500" In Wall Street Kept in Back
ground "Woman in Case"
Xot to Be Called.
ALBANY, X. Y Oct. 1. The Assem
bly board of managers rested its case
today in the trial of the impeachment
of Governor Suizer. The High Court
thed adjourned until tomorrow, when
counsel for the Governor wil). submit
several prelinlary motions for the
court to decide before opening the case
for the defense.
These disposed of, counsel probably
will ask permission to take another
adjournment before calling their first
witness. This witness, it is said, will
be Louis A. Sarecky, the Governor's
campaign secretary, whom counsel for
the impeachment managers failed to
put on the stand, although he was un
der subpena. Sarecky indorsed many
of the checks given Suizer in his
campaign which were not reported in
his sworn statement of campaign contributions.
Wife Expected to Testify.
The Governor and Mrs. Suizer are ex
pected to take the stand before the de
fense closes. The Governor will de
fend his failure to report the numer
ous contributions on the ground that
they were personal gifts, it is believed.
He will defend his alleged executive
transactions with testimony to show
that they- were conducted for his wife's
She is expected to tell the story of
the loan she is said to have contracted
with the Carnegie Trust Company and
eek to prove that for the sole purpose
of .paying the loan the Governor bor
rowed money from the stock exchange
firm of Harris & Puller on securities
owned by her, and did not speculate
with the firm.
Whether the long-missing Frederick
I Colweli, the Governor's alleged agent
in his Wall-street transactions, will be
called was a subject of much specu
lation tonight. His whereabouts have
been known to the Governor's attor
neys, but they have declined to pro
duce him unless it was stipulated that
he would not be placed under arrest
for refusing to obey the subpena of
the Frawley investigating committee.
This, counsel for the impeachment
managers said tonight, they were pow.
erless to prevent.

who paid a debt of $26,752 contracted

to be another witness. He reached Al

he arrived today from Europe. His
testimony, it is said, will be highly fa

Mr. Sinnott said there had been
much Democratic talk about placing
the necessaries of life on the free list,
most of these necessaries being prod

bags, which Congress had refused to
place on the free list.
He said that Oregon alone uses from
15,000 to 20,000,000 of these bags yearly
for marketing grain and potatoes, and
as the law now stands Oregon farmers
must pay taxes of about half a cent a

today to General Bliss, commanding
the United States' border forces.
Full advices have been received from
General Bliss and Consul Blocker con
cerning tho critical situation existing
at Piedras Negras, but the Washington
Administration Is confident that there
would be no developments to make
necessary a departure from its settled
polloy of non-intervention.
As a result of several conferences
between Consul uiocker, Major Cald
well, commanding the American troops
at Eagle Pass, Tex., and the Constltu-
tlnalist officers at Piedras Negras, it
was arranged, that the Constitutional
ists would not attempt to destroy eith

there. This had been demanded on the
ground that the bridges were neces
sary to Insure the safety of the Ameri
cans and other foreign residents In
The instructions to General Bliss
would not operate to prevent Ameri
can troops from returning any fire that
may be directed on them from the
Mexican side. Several dayg ago Gen
eral Bliss was authorized, at his own
request, to take eare of any of the
Mexican wounded of either side that
should come across the river. This au

"Certain colors are known to have
certain effects on the human system,"
said Dr. Abrams. "If it is possible to
bring a certain color to bear on the
mother, I believe that eventually we
will be able to determine what the sex
of the child may be. If red light be
focused on her head the male element
will be stronger and the child will be
of that sex. If blue be chosen, the
quieting effect will result in the child
being a girl. The only question is in
bringing the influence of light to bear."
