Hearing Of Evidence In Impeach
ment Proceedings At Albany
N. Y., Has Begun.
JACOB SCHIFF FIRST WITNESS
Limit Was Put To
(Special to the Journal.)
Albany, N. Y., Sept. 24. Brushing
aside technicalities in the impeach
ment of Governor Sulzer, of New York,
the hearing began this afternoon.
After the opening arguments, Jacob
H. Schiff, a New York banker was
called to the stand.
Schiff testified that Governor Sulzer
asked him for money during the
Governorship campaign. Continuing
in his evidence the banker said that
Sulzer came to his office and requested
an amount which was larger than he
was in a position to contribute. How
ever, he gave the Governor a sum
of money and this was not included
in Sulzer's sworn campaign returns.
Henry Morgan, the millionaire treas
urer of the Democratic NationaJ Com
mittee swore he did not limit the use
to which Governor Sulzer might put
Morgan's evidence was decidedly
in Sulzer's favor and after several minor
witnesses had been examined the hear
ing was continued until tomorrow.

the administrator of hla estate

would have earned $1,046.00. This

It seems to us that there is no reason
why any state with access to water
transportation, as this State has, should
not have the benefit of the lowest freight
rates possible. The remedy, it seems
to us, would lie, in a great measure,
in control of inter-state rates. If the
legislature would fix the rates as Wis
consin has done and compel the car
riers to transport freight within the
State at reasonable rates, then with
water rates to our port cities, like
New Bern and Wilmington, we ought
to be on a par with Virginia in the mat
ter of freight rates. After controlling
inter-State rates the next step would be
to develop the ports of the State.
Then, instead of our freight coming
to Norfolk by water and thence by
rail to the various North Carolina
points, as a lot of it does, it would come
to New Bern, Wilmington and other
ports of the State. We would then
get the benefit oi the cheap water
rate to our ports and the benefit of
cheap railroad rate to intra-State
The State must aid in the develop
ment of the ports. It is a matter cf
vital concern to the State. A campaign
of education should be carried on until

The Washington authorities are hope
ful of the Mexican situation and feel
that Huerta is virtually eliminated.
True the provisional President has
given no direct assurances that he will
aot run, but from intimations emanating
from Mexico City it is felt that he has
definitely bound himself not to be a
candidate. Recently Felix Diaz has
been recalled and his candidacy seems
to be on the boom. What improvement
he would be over Huerta and why
the United States should recognize
him, if it does so, after declining to
recognize Huerta, we fail, to see.
