PAGE TWO THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1913. SULZER ANSWERS M'CABE'S ATTACK No Denial of Secret Confer ences With Murphy. CALLS M'CABE CATSPAW. Declares There's Very Little Truth In Accusations "Planned by Crafty Ene mies of Direct Primaries In Now York City." Albany, N. Y., June 18. Governor Sulzer's answer to the charges of Sen ate Clerk Patrick E. McCabo was de livered at the flnal meeting last night of his state wide campaign In favor of the direct primary bill. The governor did not discuss the assertion that since ho assumed ofllce he has held frequent secret conferences In New York city with Charles F. Murphy. In his speech, Governor Sulzer, after pointing out that Tweed, with brazen audacity, defied the voters, asked, "Havo little boss Tweeds so soon for gotten the tragic fate of big Boss Tweed?" "Now a few words about little boss Tweed In Albany county, one Patrick B. McCabo," the governor continued. "You know something about him and his methods. He has circulated what be called a bitter attack on mo. It was a screed so ridiculous that I sup pose I should not dignify It by a denial I hope every one here has rend this McCabo nttnek." After reviewing a letter from Mc Cabo, In which he was fulsomcly prais ed. Governor Sulzer went on: McCabe Gets Wild. "I was n great man apparently In McCabc's estimation so long as ho be lieved I would recognize him us tho boss of the Democratic party In Al bany county, but just so soon as I gave some recognition to Mr. Dngan a decent man and tho Democratic state committeeman from Albany county Mr. McCabe gets wild and has his good but erratic friend write a libelous manifesto about me, replete with statements without the slightest foundation of fact. Tho letter and tho statement show the difference, how ever, between now nnd then. "Poor McCabo! Ho Is n catspaw, nnd I feel sorry for him. "Perhaps I should say that there is very little truth In the purported state ment of Mr. McCabo. Much of tho matter Is too absurd for mo to dignify with a denial, especially In view of tho fact that another man wroto It. "Who wroto it? Who gavo the writ er tho Information? That Is what tho people want to kiow. McCabe has re cently boon In several conferences. If he knows iet him tell all ho knows. Tiioy say McCabe Is n squealer. "They tell me this whole thing was deliberately planned and executed by crafty enemies of direct primaries In New York city for the purposo of breaking the force of my special mes sage on direct nominations sent to tho extraordinary session of tho legisla ture. "I do not think It will deceive any friend of the cause of direct primaries or disconcert nny citizen In the state. It certainly will not distract mo or prevent me from going right ahead with my efforts to write upon the stat ute books a direct nominations law that will carry out in good faith tho promises of tho Democratic party. These attacks on mo are well under stood. They will not hurt mo in tho end. But whether they do or not, I shall go on regardless of political or personal consequences. Calls the Attack Weak. "There Is an old saying, you know, that when n lawyer has a bad case ho should abuso tho other side. Mr. Mc Cabe, it seems, Is in this category. IIo is so weak as a political leader in Al bany that Just ono honest direct pri mary election would relegate his boss ship to the political scrap heap. "Mr. McCabo knows this, and henco ho is fighting against direct primaries to save his political skin. That is all there Is to it. McCabo thinks that by abusing me ho can defeat direct nomi nations, but his efforts will bo abor tive, and his antics aro about as trans parent and as ludicrous as those of tho ostrich, which sticks its head in tho sand nnd thinks its body cannot bo seen. Mr. McCabo's political head is in tho political sand, but wo all see the rest of him and tho sight is not allur ing." KAPPER GRAFT JUDGE.

In tho case of tho commonwealth vs. Thomas Haley alias Thomas Cort right, in which B. F. Ossendorf, of Waymart, was tho prosecutor, and which was tried in tho local court on Monday of this week, the jury return ed a verdict of "not guilty" in court Tuesday morning. The Court told the jury that tho fact that there was some evidence that Ossendorf was under the influence of liquor should not have Influenced them in finding a verdict. Haley was brought before the court. Ho is 34 years old. Judge Scarle Instructed tho sheriff to give Haley the $4.10 he had taken from him when he was placed in jail, and instructed that Haley should buy a ticket with it and leave town. H. B.

When we got to Seelyville he wanted to go along to Waymart. He went and I left him on the other side of Waymart. He did not go all the way homo with me. I had my money in the out'ide pocket of my coat in an envelope. I had taken $5 out to pay tho bartender at the Arrow Cafe and Haley was standing near me. 1 had the money when we were at Seelyville. It was gone when I got home. I figured that I had lost about $35. Attorney W. H. Lee was appointed by the Court to defend Haley who had no counsel. On cross-examination it was attempted to show that Ossendorf was under the influence of liquor. He said that he was not un der the influence of liquor Wednes day night. Haley came to his room early Thursday morning and asked Ossendorf where his clothes were. They had a few drinks at the Arrow Cafo before leaving and stopped at Seelyville where they had two more. Mr. Ossendorf asserted that he had taken beer while Haley took whis key. Ho said that ho had about $47 in the envelope and that he allowed that he had spent $12 at tho Arrow Cafe. Peter Kahl, bartender at the Ar row Cafe,, sworn: Haley worked around the place and did not got any pay for his services, only once in a while, ho was given a quarter. He had no money. Haley was standing along side of Ossendorf when they came up to tho bar for drinks that Thursday afternoon. He had an op portunity of seeing tho money that Ossendorf carried in tho envelope. Haley went with him but did not come back. He stated that tho two had had several drinks before they started. Joseph Gumpper, bartender at the Seelyville hotel, was next sworn: He stated that Ossendorf and Haley had stopped at tho hotel Thursday af ternoon, May 22, for about ten min utes. They had two drinks and then started for Waymart. I saw Haley again Friday afternoon. Ho came in to the hotel and ho had money. Ho spent three or four dollars there and let mo have $5 to keep for him. When ho left he left ninety cents on tho bar. On cross-examination he stated that the $5.90 was in the till of the hotel in a separate pilo await ing tho action of tho Court. Ossen dorf had paid for the drinks and took out of tho envelope $5 and I gavo him the change for it. When Haley came back Friday he got to bo a nuisanco and I put him out. IIo was Intoxicated when he came there. Mrs. Augusta Myers, proprietor of tho Seelyville hotel, was sworn: I saw Haley Thursday and again on Friday. He came in after Mr. Gump per had left and lay down in a chair for a nap. When he awoke he ask ed for a drink. I gave him one and he paid me with a $5 bill. I gave him the change and I saw that he had four other bills of the same de nomination with him then, when he left. iHe was sober at that time. N. B. Spencer, county detective, sworn: He served tho warrant on Haley in tho bar-room of the Wayne Hotel. I searched him and found on him $4.10. I arrested him and locked him up. Haley told me then that he never took Ossendorf's mon oy but that he had given him $2. The next morning in the jail ho told me mat Ossendorf had given him $6 Or cross-examination ho stated that Haley had a few drinks in him but was not so drunk hut that ho know what he was talking about. Tho Commonwealth rested. Thomas Haley was tho only wit ness in his own behalf called bv the defense. Ho stated that Ossendorf had como into tho Arrow Cafo Wed nesday afternoon nnd ho put him to uea.

Don't remember letting Gumpper have a cent. Ho put me out. I went back in after he was gone and had another drink. Gave Mrs. Myers a $5 bill, the only one I had. I did not see Hauser until later. I did not go into his house because his wife would not let me in. I did not see any checks. I went to the Hotel Wayne from Seelyville and only spent 20 cents there.

JUNE TERM OF COURT OPENED OX MONDAY. NO EVIDENCE OF ASSAULT The case of tho Commonwealth against E. R. Hoffman charged with assault and battery by William Reinlke was disposed of Tuesday af ternoon. Tho Jury in case was com posed of the following men: J. Buck ingham, Damascus; E. W. Bush, Manchester; E. L. Crocker, Damas cus; W. H. Gaston, Damascus; Geo. Goodman, Texas; L. E. Haynes, Star rucca; J. M. Lyons, Honesdale; My ron Labarr, Mt. Pleasant; Daniel Megeo, Buckingham; W. P. Mathews, Clinton; Frank Moulter, Texas; Wm. J. Phllo, Sterling. Tho Court instructed the jury to bring a verdict of "not guilty" for ho said that the Commonwealth had failed to show any evidence of an as sault in the case. The costs were divided between the defendant and prosecutor. The latter to paytwo thirds and tho former to payone third. Tho difficulty grow out of tho fact that on April 20, 1913, tho defend ant had piled some lumber on each side of a lane on his own land and had left the wagon standing on tho road between the two plies. On that day Mr. Reinlke and Tils son camo along and Hoffman went out toward them to see tho son on a mat ter that had previously arisen be tween them. He had an axe and ac cording to his testimony Mr. Reinlke camo toward him with a cane uplift ed and he placed the axo on the hub of tho wagon wheel to keep Reinlke away. Tho latter alleged that iHoftman attempted to strike him with tho axe. Several witnesses were called. It seems that tho lane was private property but had been UBed by tho neighbors several times. Hoffman claimed that ho had no in tention of barring the neighbors from using tho lane if they remained on tho road and did not cut up his fields. MILANVILLE. Mllanville, June 19. Mrs. M. L.
