Excerpt from Albany, the Crisis in Government: The History of the Suspension, Trial and Expulsion From the New York State Legislature in 1920 of the Five Socialist Assemblymen by Their Political Opponents

In recent years the energies and intelligence of statesmen and thinkers in the whole civilized world have been directed to the creation of a governmental apparatus which is susceptible to change in accordance with the ever-changing conditions and facts of life. It was sought to create processes by which the complex interests in society may express their will and affect their purposes.

We, in the United States, felt sure that we possessed that instrument. Ours was a Constitutional Representative Government, carrying within it the possibility of its own change and modification, thus being an adequate agency for peaceful social progress. We were proud of this fact.

This instrument has been brutally assaulted. It has been badly damaged, if not completely destroyed.

The story of this assault is contained in the following pages. The characters of the assailants, the forces and interests back of them, the nature of the assault, and the defenders of representative government, are all described.

There are four episodes to this story: The suspension; the reaction of the country and of the world to the suspension; the "trial," and the expulsion.

The suspension took place on January 7, 1920. The trial began January 20 and ended March 11. The expulsion took place March 31, 1920.

Between January 7 and March 31 enough had happened to fill many, many volumes.
