GOVERNOR EAGER TO TALK
Scheme of Putting Details In Writ

timony Will Soften Ordeal
ALBANY. N. T.. Oct 4. Governor
Sulzer tonight was said to have per
fected a plan for getting his who!
story before the public and at the
same time escaping cross-examination
on more than a part of it.
It was generally reported that if his
attorneys continued to Insist on his
curtailing his sworn testimony-
they are said to be doing he will
abide by their demand, but will issue
a statement to the newspapers con
taining that part of his narrative
barred by his legal advisers. He will
give out the statement on taking the
witness stand, it is reported.
"Inner Workings" to Be Exposed.
Should he do this be would get his
whole story to the people, which he
always has insisted he would accom
plish In some manner. One thing that
he has told many callers and main
- tained in talking with his counsel Is
that the people are entitled to know
everything he does about the "Inner
workings" of political organizations in
the state. His attorneys have pointed
out repeatedly that If he lets his de
sire to divulge information carry him
too for he will open the way for the
severest cross-examination for counsel
for the board of managers.
Bo, If the Governor's counsellors have
their way, his sworn testimony will
be much less sensational than the
statement he now Is said to be plan
ning. Manager Eager for Fray.
The asserted eagerness of the at
torneys for the board of managers to
have the Governor take the stand has
made his attorneys somewhat chary
about his "telling everything." Coun
sel for the managers made no secret
of their hope that the testimony of Sul
zer would open the way for the intro
duction of much new evidence, which
they cannot introduce if he falls to
testify or only denies briefly stories
told by witnesses for the managers
The Governor's eagerness to make
public what his statement is expected
to contain if it is Issued has caused
endlesB arguments between him and
his counsel. More than two weeks ago,
It is said, he planned an expose of 2500
words and was ready to give It to the
newspapers when his counsel checked
Murphy to Be Attacked.
It is understood the Governor's prom
ised statement will be largely devoted
to "Boss" Murphy, of Tammany Hall.
He will say, among other things, that
Murphy laid the groundwork for the
Governor's future overthrow even be
fore the holding of the convention at
which Sulzer was nominated.
The "boss" consented to his nomina
tion, and even offered to lend him
money, the Governor will allege, be
cause he knew he was $19,000 in debt,
and that in all their dealings there
after he used the knowledge of Sul-

slump and there was nothing doing.
Some of the dealers refused to give
prices and would not buy, while others
gave prices, but did not purchase. The
farmers and dealers blame the sign

the duty has been removed from wheat.
Club wheat was quoted at around 68

The prices are the lowest In years.

in which General Francisco Castro and
his 4700 federal troops succeeded in
defeating and routing Francisco Villa
and his 4000 combined rebel forces,
tend to show that it was desperately
fought and a bloody one. General Sal
azar, of the federal forces, in a private
telegram to friends at Juarez, placed
his estimate of the total number
dead at 700. The-casualties were most

among non-combatants in the town
resulting from the federal artillery
fire, he said, was enormous.
The principal buildings and most of
the residences of the town were prac

REDDING, Cal., Oct. 4. (Special.)
An attempt to hold up the Portland ex
press, southbound, about half a mile
north of Redding, 'shortly after 10
o'clock tonight was foiled by J. F.
Johnston, superintendent of the city
water works plant, situated on Jenny
Creek, a mile north of here. Johnston
left the city at 10 o'clock to go homo
and had gone about half the distance
when a man stepped out of the brush
and warned him to get out of the lo
cality as fast as he could.
Johnston started back, but circled
through the brush to the plant, where
he telephoned to the Redding police and
then got a lantern and flagged the
train. The police found the track
piled high with logs.
The express messengers, who were
on the lookout when passing the spot,
saw three men armed with rifles on
the bank. These men escaped.
Two men were found on the top of
the baggage car. They were unarmed
and said they were stealing a ride.
They were arrested. Thef gave their
names as Walter Wright, formerly of

FORT STEVENS. Or., Oct. 4. (Spe
cial.) Great excitement prevails amid
Army circles here over the astounding
disclosures of Corporal Shade, who re
cently surrendered to the military au
thorities at Tacoma, Wash.
He testified before a special court
convened at Fort Stevens to the effect
that he absented himself from that
place in order to avoid certain death
at the hands of the friends and minions
of Waldo H. Coffman, now in the Fed
eral penitentiary at Leavenworth.
He was first offered by John Vogel.
a civilian tailor employed by the Post
Exchange at Fort Stevens. $100 and a
suit of civilian clothing if he would
leave Fort Stevens and thereby nullify
the efforts of the prosecution in the
Coffman case. These offers he rejected.
From that time on he was subjected
to a series of threats of violence.
Shade Told f Fate.
' According to bis knowledge of the
case he testified on the first day of the
trial concerning the treasonable utter
ances of Coffman. About this time
Crawford, a witness of equal import
ance, mysteriously disappeared. Shade
was threatened with a similar fate.
Later he was approached by Edward
Johnson, an avowed Socialist and friend
of Coffman, with an affidavit purport
ing to show that the commanding o ni
cer. Colonel Oscar I. Straub, had used
methods of coercion in obtaining his

was all false, etc

he at last agreed to go to Astoria. He
started on the train to Astoria with
Mechanic Davis, now a deserter. Davis
outlined to him the foilowingilan,
namely, that he was to proceed to a
certain poolroom in Astoria; there he
was to meet a' committee and sign an
ffldavlt to' the effect that hla..tcstl-
mony was false and secured by means
of threats from the commanding officer.
Davis assured him that one of the mem
bers of this gathering was a desperato
man, capable of killing him should he
fall to carry out his part of the pre
arranged programme. He was informed
also that a notary public would be
present who would affix his official
seal without looking at the document

Shade believed that in either case he
