Fire Both Parties Primed Democrats Assail Motive of Proposed Investi- gation By the King's Side Syracuse Herald Bureau Albany, Feb. 18 Debate on the Republican spon- sored resolution proposing a legisla- tive investigation of the affairs of New York City began in the Senate today after a.cloee call of the House had assured Republican and Demo- cratic leaders of a lull voting strength. A vote on the. measure was expected before the day's session was adjourned. The success or 'allure of the reso- lution, backed by the Republican State chairman, W. Ktngsland Macy. depended entirely on the Senate and especially upon the vote of the two Westchester County senators, Sea- bury C. Masticlc and Walter W. Westall. The Assembly two weeks ago passed the resolution over the vote of the. five Westchester Repub- lican assemblymen. Democrats op- posed the measure unanimously. Since that time, Westall and Macy have been cited as holding fast to the stand of Ward and the five as- semblymen. Nothing to indicate a change in the attitude of the two men had beea. evidenced at the begin- ning of the 'debate. The Republicans maintain a Senate majority by the marfcin ot one vote. The measure was brought up In the Senate shortly after the session begr-n under a report of the committee on rules, making the resolution the im- mediate order ol business, with de- bate limited to a half hour, to be di- vided between the Republicass and Democrats. Minority Leader Bernard Downing i-ald he would not object to the pro- cedure, although he expressed sur- prise that the resolution was not brought out in the regular way by report of the committee to which it had been referred. Senator Downing Jokingly suggested that Mr. Macy attend the session so that he might the Senate what to do. Opening the debate. Senator John m. Knight, majority leader, declared that the main purpose of the resolution to remedy the corrupt conditions re- vealed" in New York City, so they can be prevented !n the future. "I can't ewhy any member of this House, in view of the evidence of corruption which has already been revealed, can vote to defeat this reso- said Senator Knight, Declaring that Mayor Walker had shirked his responsibility, he said that Governor Roosevelt also had failed to act.

Van Tuyl, Jr.. former State banking commissioner and a. director of the bank and Its affiliated Bantus Cor- poration. Under questioning by Deputy At- torney General Max D. Steuer. Van Tuvl admitted there was "fraud somewhere" in the approval by direc- tors of in loans which he did not recall having passed upon. He would "not dare hazard a guess" as to where it was. he said. Vftn Tuvl sad he signed the di- rectors meeting minutes as secretary of the bank's executive committee, but he insisted the loans never had been brought up in his presence nor >ad he known that approval was re- corded when he attached his slgna- ,ure Other directors testified they remembered nothing of the subject thcc loans.

IS Juan Bautista Aznar formed a cabinet to succeed that of General Damaso Berenguer today and at one o'clock this afternoon its members took the oath of office befoer the King and assumed charge of the government. The members of the new cabinet are: Admiral Aznar, premier; General Berenguer, secretary of war; Juan De La Cierva, public works; Juan Vcntosa, treasury; Count De Bugallal, economy; Duke of Maura, labor; Mar- quis De Hoyos, Interior; Marquis Alhucemas, justice; Count De Ro- mances, foreign affairs. This list leaves vacant the ministry of marine and the ministry of In- struction. Admiral Aznar himself temporarily will act as minister of marine, but both portfolios are ex- pected to be filled shortly. The admiral, it was said in official circles, is in delicate health and was induced to accept the heavy task which now is his only by an appeal to his patriotism. General Berenguer also Is not well :d it was considered doubtful that he would he able lo participate ac- tively In the" new-gorernment. Admiral Aznar, oldest ranking Cpanish naval officer, was called by King Alfonso to form a, .Spanish government based upon representa- tion of all the Monarchist groups, who had agreed in a midnight meet- Ing to forget their differences and rally to support of the throne. Admiral Aznar was minister of ma- rine in the cabinet which preceded the Prlmo cle Elvera coup d'etat. The new government marked a right about face In the attitude of King Alfonso, who in his selection Moncoy of Jose Antonio Sanchez Guerra as premier designate gave tacit consent to a constitutional con- vention which would have shorn the throne of much of its power and perhaps altogether changed the form of the Spanish government. The new government, while its prozram has not been announced, probably will seek constitutional re- vision but to a limited degree. Like its predecessor, the ministry of Gen- eral Berenguer. who resigned Satur- day, an attempt will be made to restore parliamentary government at CongressEnds Louis Wolheim, Bad Man Deadlockon Of Screen, Succumbs Muscle Shoals Hollywood After Operation FLOYD L.
