SLAIN GIRL CARRIED TO GRAVE
Coroner's Physician Advances New
Theory to Explain Death Mystery.
New York. Aug. 13.-Dr. Albert C.
Weston, coroner's physician, asserted
that tho girl, believed to havo beeu
Anna C. Lopcck, whose body was
found In n grovo in lnwood, near Spuy
ten Duyvil creek, was murdered else
where and tho body cnrrlcd to ths spot
where it was discovered Sunday night
Dr. Weston examined the ground thor
oughly and declared that, ns tho girl's
throat had been cut, there should havo
been more evidence of hemorrhage at
the scene if she was killed in the
.woods. There was very little, however.
The coroner's physician said that
death was caused by blows on the
head, tho girl's skull being fractured
In two places. Dr. Weston said ho be
lieved that tho murderer or murderers
had tried to decapitate tho victim in
order to prevent identification and that
approaching footsteps frightened awny
tho slayer or slayers.
Dr. Weston made only a superficial
examination, delaying the nutopsy in
order to give further opportunity for
Identification. Tho body was at the
morguo when Dr. Weston found twen-ty-flvo
stab wounds on the face, two
fractures of tho skull and two slashes
on tho throat. Tho coroner's physician
denounced tho police for being slow in
sending the body to the morguo, delay
ing It to allow department photograph
ers to photograph It where found and
for tho matron at tho West Ono Hun
dred and Fifty-second street station to
examine the clothing.

GOVERNOR SULZER OF I 1 IMPEACHED
House Vote Stood 79 to 45 After All Night Session.
Report That Mrs. Sulzer is Ready to Confess.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 13. With
three votes more than the required
majority, Govornor William Sulzer
early Wednesday was impeached by
the assembly for alleged "high
crimes and misdemeanors" In con
nection with his campaign fund.
After an all-night session, spent
by the majority In fllbusterlng until
"Tammany" absentees could arrive,
the vote was taken at 5:16 a. m., re
sulting 79 for impeachment ' to 45
The first impeachment of a gover
nor of Now York state came close on
the heels of the most sensational
feature in the Sulzer-Murphy war,
when Mrs. Sulzer told certain sena
tors that she was responsible for the
Sulzer stock market deals and that
the governor knew nothing about it.
She sought to shoulder all blame.
Friends of the governor took an
entirely different view. They assert
ed that Sulzer would be governor

until the senate passed on the
charges preferred by the assembly.
They pointed out that the present
constitution of the state of New York
does not cover the point. Its pro
visions regarding impeachment ap
ply only to the removal of "judicial j
omcers. rne oia constitution pro
vided for the automatic suspension of
the governor by the filing of
Lieutenant Governor Glynn declin
ed to take any hand in the contro
versy. He said it would have to be
settled by the senate.
That Governor Sulzer will decTno
to step out is regarded as certain,
and it is equally certain that the
Tammany majority will declare
Glynn acting governor immediately.
It is believed Sulzer will decline
to surrender tho executive office and
the seal and some of the more rad
ical of the Sulzer partisans declared
the governor would call out the
militia to aid him.
Governor Sulzer took the news of
his Impeachment with equanimity
and calmness, and went to bed Im
mediately after he heard that the
Levy resolution had passed.
His only statement was that he
will fight the Impeachment by apply
ing to the supreme Court for an or
der restraining the further proceed
ings. He said he would carry the
case to tho United States court of
old him. Assemblymen Hinman,
Schanp and Gibbs were prepared to
lead the attack on the resolution.
Absentees on the first roll call were:
Democrats Brewster, Evans; nearn,
Ingram, Kornobls and Wlllmott.
Republicans Alder, Alien, Broreton.
Glilett, Hopkins, Ilorton, Jones,
Knight. Macdonald, Macliold, Pappert,
Pembieton, Phillips, Richardson, J. A.
Smith, Sullivan. Sweet, Vert and Yeo
mans Progressives Jude and Volk.
Speaker Smith announced that sev
eral of these absentees were known to
be in tho city and the sergeant at
arms was Instructed to look for them.
Two of tho three absent Democrats
from Kings were reported to be on
tho wny, and It was said that tho one
other from Kings was too 111 to at
tend the session.
Hinman Opens Debate.
Upon Mr. Levy's call for the order
of business. Assemblyman Illnnmu
opened the debate with an arraign
ment of the absentees and a repeti
tion of his declaration that ho believ
ed the assembly was without the pale
of the constitution In considering Im
peachment nt an extraordinary session
not called for flint purpose.
Every act of .Mr. Sulzer's with rela
tion to compalgii funds brought out by
tho Frawiey committee, Mr. Hinman
asserted in his opening speech, dated
back to a period before the governor
took his oatli of office. Reference wns
made to a resolution adopted by the
assembly In 18o3, In which It wns de
clared that no official could bo im
peached for any offense committed be
fore taking office.
"It mny be," said Mr. Hinman, "that
the governor would not raise any tech
nicalities, but tho members of the as
sembly owe It to themselves not to vio
late the constitution. In view of the
chaos now prevailing In our state we
have an opportunity of bringing those
responsible to their senses by treating
the matter in a dignified and lofty
manner. A clerk In a police court
could draw a better Indictment than
that which Is presented for our con
sideration." Wire Brings Recruits.
Telegraphic commands to. absentees
kept flowing over tho wires in a steady
stream all day bore fruit in tho after
noon and evening In tho arrival of a
squad of assemblymen from New York
While deputy sergeant at arms hur
ried through Albany with summonses
to compel every assemblyman In the
city to take his desk on tho assembly
floor and self appointed committees
met incoming trains, a throng eclipsing
any that had stormed the capital In
the memory of the oldest attendant
poured through its stone doorways.
Two hours before tho time set for
calling tho assembly to order In night
session the first comers bad taken
their stand outside the railing In the
assembly chamber. Hundreds were
standing at 7:30 o'clock. At 8 o'clock
the great doors to the assembly cham
ber closed In the face of a grumbling
crowd in the corridor. The galleries
were packed. Hundreds of women
were among tho crowd.
thd low mortality among the veter
ans at Gettysburg is simply that
they were not permitted to suffer
from confusion, uncertainty, over
exertion and overheating. And here
is where tho Scouts did the business;
they were the boys who found the
way to quarters in the dark, who car
ried tho luggage, showed the old fel
lows how to ventilate the tents,
where to And water, where to draw
blankets, where to find mess, and car
ried on their young shoulders Just
that portion of the burden of living
that would have been an overload
for tho old soldiers.
"At the Red Cross Aid Stations,
situated here and there on the bat
tlefield at points where the old sold
iers would be most apt to congregate
and fight it over again, very import
ant service was rendered by giving
water, rest in the shade, and such
medical attention as was requisite.
"But It was tho Scouts who bore
the litters, and rustled for water,
finding in true Scout style tho best
sources, and carrying the heavy palls
often for a mile or moro to the sta
tions. And it was tho Scouts who
did guard duty and protected the
property of the stations during the
nights; no little responsibility that!
The stations were lonely spots at
night, far from the village and camp,
and army blankets are much coveted
souvenirs! Thus from the first pail
ful of water at the Aid 'Stations to
the departure of the train that bore
both doctors and Scouts to their
homes, the Red Cross organization
depended- on the boys. For all the
careful provisions made by the Army,
and tho State of Pennsylvania, and
the Red Cross, tho railroads fell
down; and during the whole hour of
delay in which a mass of veterans
seethed in the boiling sun like a mil
ling herd, while a train was leisurely
made up to take them away, much of
the good effects of the protective care
provided In the camp was undone,
and tho old men dropped exhausted.
But the Scouts were waiting, too, and
they gathered the vets up and car
ried them to the ambulances and
then dashed back to their train for
"The unanimous sentiment of the
Red Cross doctors was regret that
there were no Scouts when they
were boys, and that their own sons
should surely be Scouts!"
