To the Senate:

STATE OF NEW YORK

EXECUTIVE CHAMBER, Į

ALBANY, January 13, 1890.

It has been satisfactorily established before me that William F. Pitske, a justice of the city court of New York, was in November, 1888, while in the discharge of his duties, stricken with paralysis, and has since been incapacitated from performing any judicial functions, and his illness is of such permanent character as will probably prevent his ever resuming the duties of his office, and that the said justice is now in Europe, where he has been since about May, 1889. In consideration of these facts, on December 31st last I made an order suspending the said justice from the exercise of the duties of his office, and directed therein that his compensation should cease from that date, and now, under the authority vested in me by section 11 of article 6 of the Constitution, I recommend to the Senate the removal of the said justice from office.

DAVID B. HILL.

Ordered, That said message be referred to the committee on the judiciary.
