"Ah preHidiiiK Juilpp," ruled Jus

f-ennlom I believe the icron chnl

not think n member of the court
could be excused legally even if he

wilt be tnken on the point."
Hy the vole, the court upheld Cul
len' rutin;: unnnhwuixly.
Tho court wapiti scimoii for oulv
thirty minutes before mljoiiniinp un

Cullen milled that he did not be
lieve tliero wax the fligtileKt basix
for the dcfoiiKu'H daim that Frnwlev
and Wngncr were unfit tn pnrtieipntc
in the trial. He cxprcRKd himself
with much emphncin, and there was
no question (hut the rutin" wns a

The defeiiKc replieij by cnllinp lu
miPRtinn the repulnrity of the jmt

dropped, on the ground that the as

Attorney T.ouin Mnrshnll, for the
defence, hnd begun nn nrgunient in
Riipport of this motion when n re
cess was tnken.
flovernor Sulrer was again absent
frnm the sennte chnmbcr during the
inipenehment proceedings. His law
yers, denied that lie has nny inten
tion of resigning before the evidence
is in.
After an afternoon session of only
ono hour tho Suiter Impeachment
court adjourned until 3 o'clock next
Monday aftornoon.
Sutler's counsel were preparing to
day x brlof denying every chargo
mndo against tho governor.
In addition to this donlal they will
sot up tho contention that tho consti
tution does not, as tho prosecution
maintains, rccoguUo tho prlnciplo
that a personal, as distinguished from
an official, offenso may disqualify an
otfondor from holding office.
Technical Dcfcnso
Tho following paragraph In tho lm
peachmont brief will bo quoted In
support of tho defense's claim that
mnllco actuated tho Impeachment pro pre
ceedings: "Tho world hntca a liar but it is
not for lying thnt William Sulzer'a
conviction is asked, lio Is charged
with filing n fnlso cortlflcato of his
campaign contributions, and, by so
doing, with committing a crlmo. It
wns contomplatod In tho constitution
thnt a criminal, holding otfico, should
first bo impenchod, thoroby stripping
him of official lufluouconud power to
acquit hlmsolf by removing tho dis
trict attorney who prosecuted him,
tho Judgo who scntoncod him nnd flu
ally by pardoning himself."
