Until Monday afternoon was taken in the
Impeachment trial of Governor Sulzer
today after a few motions jjuide by
consul for the defense had been dis
posed of.
Isldor J. Kresel of counsel for tho as
sembly managers read a statement at
the Impeachment trial of Governor Sul
ler this afternoon absolving the New
York brokerage firm of Harris & Fuller
of any attempt to change their books in
order to protect the governor. The state
ment, Mr. Kresel said, was made "gladly
on the part ot tho counsel for tho man
agers In order to remove any misconcep
tion that may have been created by tho
attitude ot the managers' attorneys."
At the trial on Tuesday, Attorney Kresnl
placed considerable emphasis on an entry
In the firm's books which recorded a
"loan" 'tb the, governor.' Mr. Fuller took
offense at tho questioning of. the entry
and demanded an apology.
Mr. Krescl's statement preceded various
motions made by counsel for the gover
nor to strike out certain testimony.
Testimony Stricken Out.
The first motion had to do with the in
struction of testimony of Louis A. Sar
ecky, the governor's campaign secretary,
taken before the Frawley committee. This
was testified to by the stenographer who
reported It. Mr. Fox contended that tho
stenographer's testimony was hearsay.
Judge Cullen held the testimony was
hearsay and would go out.
The next motion was to strike out cer
tain testimony of J. B. Gray, the1 Well
Street? broker. In regard to a conversa
tion he had with F. S. Cobrell, the gov
ernor's alleged Wall Street agent. Judge
Cullen ruled that the testimony would
'As the Sulzer attorneys were about to
move to strike out parts of the impeach
ment on the ground that the charges
were unproved. Judge Cullen said:
"I shall hold that all motions Involving
the probatlvo force of competent evidence
must be left "until the final submission
of the case."
Attorney Fox then declared ho had In
tended to move to stripe out articles
three, four, five, seven and eight, on tho
ground that "the testimony concerning
thm Is not worthy of consideration."
However, he said he would bow to thfc
ruling ot the presiding Judge, but re
quested the privilege of making tho
motions later if necessary.
Adjournment Until Monday.
Judge Herilck then announced that

American Child
Killed by Chinese
Band at Tsao
PEKING, China, Oct Z.-The American
legation here received a report today
from J. Paul Jameson, vice consul gen.
eral at Shanghai, stating that an Amerl
can child had been killed and other for
elgnera were belijg maltreated by Chi
SesebrlffandB at Tsao Yanir.
The legation fears' that ,the Chinese
covcrnmcni troops are neither capable
nor xealous enough to accomplish the
release of the American and Norwegian
missionaries In the hands of the bandits
at Tsao Yang and that ransom alone can
save the lives ot foreigners still in cap
tivity. It Is believed that the ransom demanded
may not be heavy, as Chinese 'idea In
monetary matters are not extravagant
ByHhe efforts of the American lega
tion and consulates, the missionaries have
been kept out of unsafe districts during
the last two years, but they were not re
btrlcted from going to the northern part
of the province of Hu Peh. which hith
erto had not beeff considered, dangerous.
At Hankow, General LI Yuen Heng,
vice president of the republic states,
everything possible Is being done.X Nearly
3,000 Chinese troops are advancing on the

Discount Eate of
Bank of England
i; is Sent Upward
LONDON, Oct. 2. After a prolonged
discussion the directors ot the Bank of
England today decided to raise the bank
rate from 4H to 5 per cent as a precau
tionary measure to protect the bank's
reserve, which has been depleted by ovor
110,000,000 this week by exports to Egypt.
The weekly consignments of gold from
South Africa have been absorbed by the
continent, whero the scramble for gold
continues '
The discount market hardly expected
the advance today In view ot the firmer
New York exchange, but it was recog
nized that some protective measure would
be necessary In tho near future in order
to enable the Bank of England to save
the gold arriving from South Africa and
build up its reserve, which has fallen
much below that of last year.
The higher rate. It Is expected, will
serve as a warning to other quarters to
pheck their orospectlve gold deknands.
