Albany, N. Y., Sept. 20. Sworn tes
timony that Governor William Sulzer
of New York asked him to commit per
jury before the Frawley senate com
mittee was given before the impeach
ment court here today by State Super
intendent of Public Works Peck.
Immediately after Sulzer was nomin
ated for governor, Peck declared he
gave him $500. t Ou July 4 Peck said -he
was cubpoeuaed by the Frawley1 com
mittee. "I went to the executive offices,"
Peck testified, "showed Sulzer the let
ter and asked him what I should do. He
said 'forgot it.' I asked him what I
culd do if they had me under oath,
and he answered 'oh, do as I am going
to do forgot it.' "
Technical Victory.
Sulzer won an important technical
victory. His victory took the form of
a vote, 49 to 2 to let contributors to
his campaign fund toll whether their
contributions were given with the un
derstanding that thoy were to be used
only for campaign purposes or if they
meant to let Sulzer spend them as he
If 8ulzor' eon prove that the latter
was the case, the bottom will he knock
ed out of tho prosecution's claim that
he used a part of tho fund in personal
stock markot speculations and that, In
doing so, he committed a crime.
Could Not Do It
Henry Morgenthau, who contributed
$1000, said Sulzer begged him to troot (t
as a personal transaction if asked con
cerning it before the Impeachment
court. Morgenthau told him he could
not do it.
T. Tenjplo Gwathmay, cotton broker,
told the court that he intended the $100
check he 'gave to Sulzor to be used
"for campaign purposes only."
Dr. John Cox, who followed Gwath
may, scored for the governor, ne nave
'$300 to the campaign fund. Sulzer's
counsel asked whether it was for cam
paign or for personal use. The prose
cution did not want to permit an an
swer. Chief Justice Cullen overruled
the objection and the curt sustained
him 33 to 24.
"I Intended Sulzer to have the $:)0
for his own personal uso, to do with an
ho pleased," said Cox.
