Mrs. Susan Albright said she re
mained with her sister, Mrs. Adams,
during the few days preceding her
death on August 23, last.
"We wanted our sister .to go to the
hospital for an operation but she ig
nored our pleas, saying she first must
obtain the advice of Seiferd. Dr. Kil

she could not live more than ten or
twelve hours longer unless she was op

saying: '1 won't go to the hospital un
til I consult with Mr. Seiferd.' She
repeated that three times.
"Finally we got Seiferd on the tele

two hours later. Ho came into the bed
room. 1 was at my sister's side and he
whispered to her: 'You go to the hos

out all right.' Then slip was willing
to go. After they took sister to the

they're trying to rob us, but we'll rob

State committee until, this last spring
when the party rules were revised. The
Republican party would not undertake
to do this. It recognizes the law. I
imagine your honor knows what the
trouble is with this Democratic party.'*
"No, I don't," quickly responded
Judge McCarreil.
Refers to Democratic Factions
"Well, you read it in the papers, just
the same as I did. They have organ
ized themselves into two factions. Tlicro
is trouble between them and now they
want to come and arrogate the rights
of others—rights that don't belong to
"Two Democrats were nominated for
the Legislature in the Seventeenth dis
trict and two have withdrawn, for pur
poses known to themselves, and mem
bers of the executive committee of the
State committee now undertake to fill
the vacancy, a right which we claim
they do not have, but which we furth
er contend is vested only,—now that
the primaries have passed,—in the
hands of the city committee.
"But like all other good party men
they are taking orders. They substi
tuted nominations and they acted for
the people who had previously acted
for themselves, lip until April, 1914
we submit it was before the primaries
—the StatjaJCommitteo
recognized that it' was 'wflwrnit 'author
ity to make substitutions—why it even
cannot lill vacancies in its own com
"Until then it recognized Home Rule
and was a really Democratic commit
tee. It was brutal. What is the use
of holding a primary or giving to the
city or county committees the powers
of filling vacancies jn the city if those
powers are to be taken away from
them by the State Committee? There
is no law, or if there is, 1 would like
to know where the law is, that would
give the Democratic party or any other
party the right, through its State Com
mittee, to fill vacancies such as this and
assume control of the rights to the city
or county committee,"
Argues for State Committee
During argument presented by
Henry Walnut, another Philadelphia
attorney, who appeared for the Demo
cratic State Committee, Judge McCar
reil asked:
"Isn't it a violation of the spirit
of the primary election laws which
were passed to take out. of the .hands
of a political committee the poller of
making nominations, for the State Com
mittee to make substitutions to fill va
cancies where candidates have with
drawn? ''
'Yes, that is so," said Walnut, "but
we contend that it is not more so than
if the substitution had been made by
the City Committee."
"I can see," said Judge McCarreil,
"why the State Committee should un
dertake to fill s vacancy in cases where
the nominee ultimately is to be voted
for by the state-at-large, but this is en
tirely a different proposition."
Walnut went on to say that the Dem
ocratic State Committee is the supreme
body of that party and in view of the
fact its laws, to some extent, govern
the city and county committees, and
added: "If the State Committee is not
vested with authority of filling such
vacancies, 1 am afraid the party-will
be utterly disorganized."
When the Democratic State Commit
tee revised its rules last spring author
ity was given, under those rules, to the
executive committee of that body to
fill congressional, senatorial and legis
lative vacancies. It is the legality of
that rule which the court is now being
asked to pass upon.-
