ALDAN V, Sept. 13. Governor Sulzer's
personal friend and special graft in
vestigator, James C. Garrison, slept last
ntghl lit a cell of. the Albany county
penitentiary. He was remanded! to that
Institution by the sergeant-at-arms ot
the- state' assembly' for refusing to answer
Questions put to, him by the speaker fol
lowing arrest bn a charge of contempt,
"the charge grew out of his alleged
statement several weeks ago that four
legislators sold their votes on the resolu
tion Impeaching Governor Sulzer.
Plans by the Sulzer faction today wsre
to obtain a writ of habeas corpus from
the supreme court for the release of Gar
rison. .Majority leader Levis said today,
however, that"' such action would be Im
possible, as the assembly had plenary
power to punish for contempt'
The appellate, court so hold in a sim
ilar case several years ago. If the courts
should Mold this view, Garrison might be
kept In 'prison until next January, when
a, .new. legislature convenes. The alleged
dfferiseV is unbailable, it is said.
The arrest of Garrison came aa a climax
to a weary evening spent by tho assem
bly in 'an attempt to round up the
seventy-sjx votes necessary to pass ar
ticles of impeachment against Governor
Sulzer. The body finally adjourned at
2:33 o'clock, this morning, after an Im
passioned plea by Majority Leader Levy
for a better attendance when the as
sembly convened at noon today. Tele
grams were rushed to anti-Suiter as
semblymen, who are out of the city,
Urging them to return here immediately.

to permit a single man already in Al

lawyerslost their first fight In the high
court of Impeachment today when' the
four senators challenged by the defense
were permitted to retain their seats.

whether, tfce, court should entertain the
Cbaljtnges, was unanimous against such
procedure', The four senators directly

' immediately following the vote of the
court the reading of the long article of
impeachment was begun.
Although Presiding Judge Cullen had

qualifications of the senators for .holding
their seats, he. djd not, take advantage of
this prerogora.tlye. , He .first expressed his
opinion. .that th.9 objections were not well

The. vote came after a morning of legal
argument between Judges Herrlck and
Parker, representing the defense and the
prosecutloni respectively. Judge Herrlck's
chief argument was that no roan might
sit both, as prosecutor and Judge.
In reply Judge Parker said the mem
bers of the court were here as repre

people established the court of impeach

other than the people had a right to
remove their representatives.
The scene within the court room this

LINCOLN, SeiU. W.-(Speclal.)-The
election commissioner of Douglas county
must permit a man to register and vote
who has made his declaration of Inten
tion to bocome a citizen of the .United
States, even though seven years elapse
without his taking out his naturalization
Such is the opinion of Attorney General
Martin, after having the proposition put
up to him by County Attorney George A.
Magney ot Douglas county, Election
Commissioner Moorhead having refused
to register voters who hpd not com
pleted their naturalization papers after
In his opinion Mr. Martin says:
"The right of suffrage conies from the
state and not from tho federal govern
ment. The United States government Is
given no authority whatever to prescribe
the qualifications ot ovters in the states.
By the fifteenth amendment the states
were prohibited from discriminating
against any citizen ot the United States
In the matter of voting, but the nation
dl dnot pretend, ahd has never pre
tended, to say. who should be the voters
In tho respective states.
"In Nebraska, the constitution grants
suffrage to male residents of the follow
ing classes: First, citizens of the' United
States. Second, persona of foreign birth,
who shall have declared their Intention
to become citizens conformably to the
laws of tho United States on the sub
ject of naturalization at least thirty days
prior to an election.
"This grant does not appear In tho
least amblguotls. It purports to grant to
the man of foreign birth, who, conform
ably, to the laws of the United States
on the subject of naturalization, has de
clared his Intention to become a citizen,
the right to -vote, The legislature can
not Impair this right of this class of
voters. As soon as they have, in a
proper court, taken the proper oath, .they
are ovters, under our constitution.
Whether or not they complete -their
naturalization is a matter to which the
constitution of the state of Nebraska ap
parently is indifferent Tho state hoa
delegated to these men the' rjgfyt of -suffrage
upon their taking .out their first
Right to Vote Stays.

state could'deprlve them of that, right of,

"Citizenship In the nation and suffrage

The right to vote In the state of Ne

these two classes of voters in the consti

alien who has taken, out his first papers,
and who under the present law lets seven
years expire without completing his nat
uralization, is not a citizen of the United

LONDON, Sept. 19. Not a single motor
man or conductor employed by Uhe Till
ing Omnibus company, whose action In
ief using to recognize the union Id likely
,to bring about a general strike ot trans
port workers In London, went to work
this morning. Many motor bus lines from
the south to the north of London were
entirely suspended, causing, great Incon
venience. A few of the old horse omni
tu's were put on the streets for the first
tint In .several years.
There was no disturbance In the
vicinity of the motor bus sheds, although
the strikers gathered there In groups,
waiting for their comrades employed by
other companies to Join them at mid.
St vera! conferences were held in th
course of the morning between the omnl
bus men and the representatives of this
employes of the Amalgamated Tube sys
tem. The action of the latter In case of
a striko was discussed. Practically the
entire press of London supports the men
In their, demands. Many of the news
