build ing No conversation occurred be tweon us so far as T can remember Iwas on Goebels right and ho was about two feet ahead of mo when the first shot was fired The fountain is in the center of the pavement about sixty feet in front of the broad steps of the State building When we were about halfway between the fountain and the steps I heard the report of a rifle HOW MR GOEDEL FELL At almost the

still Goebal or they might shoot you again The first shot struck Goebel and it wits fired from one of the upper floors of the executive build g just east of the General As sembly building to which we were goinghThe first shot was followed in quick succession by four others and I heard the bullets hum by and over the body of Goebel- I am of the opinion that the sec ond shot was fired from a front window It is my impression that they were rifle shots AN APPEAL FOR AID be I looked for the shots trying locate exactly where they came from Everybody seemed to away except Eph Lilliard nndd Representative Owen Cochran to called ontIWont some one come and help carry Goebel away when the crowd rushed up Mr Lillard was almost in the door ahead of us when the shoot ing occurred He turned

contesting party de mantling his rights under the law and he asked nothing beyond its legitimateIly iE constituted authorities t7 i A Governor Goebel is dead Oa the 80th day of January at 1180 a m the assassins bullet did the work that resulted in the death of one of the greatest leaders the De nucracy has ever known in this or any other State in this nation While nearing the capitol build ing on his way to the Senate chamber he was shot from the ex ecutive building the ballentering the right breast coming out to the left of the spinal column It was stated by the wisest physicians and surgeons that it would almost be miraculous should he recover but his great will power encouraged his friends and at different times since the wound was received there were hopes of his reeov ery but with all his will power and all that humanity could do he passed over the silent river of death at 78 p m Saturday Feb ruary 8d living 4 days 7 hours and 88 minutes after the assassin had done the work for a band of conspirators In this death the Democratic party loses its great est leader in Kentucky the com mon people their ablest and most fearless friend and the nation one of the greatest intellectual lights that has been known since the formation of this republic Coming from an humble but honora ble parentage contending withall the disadvantages of poverty he blazed out his own way that gave him fame and fortune No man possessed more will power none more dovoted to the great mass of the people and to principle and none more courageously and suc cessfully fought the enemies of Democracy or shoved a greater de votion to his friends The un bridled ambition and power of gi gantic corporations was consider ed by Mr Goebel as the greatest and most dangerous enemy of our common good and with a courage almost superhuman he waged the most relentless and successful campaign against them over known to the political world but just as his hand was in reach of tho great prize for which he had honestly und heroically striven the assas sins bullet passed diagonally through his body j but thank God he was spared to become the legal Governor of Kentucky His assassination is the crowning crime of this century his death the great est loss to the State andnation Hell is not half hot enough for tho deamon who hid in ambush and slew this leader of leaders and it will take years to blot the crime from the memory of man No death ever occurred in Ken tucky created as much universal sorrow Men in this community who never saw the martyredstates man wrung their hands in pitty and tears trickled down the cheeks of tender and sympathizing wo men Kentucky weeps Democracy weeps and well they might for the place occupied by William Goebel can not be filled by living man The assassination of Mr Goebel was the most dastardly deed ever perpetrated in this State and his tory does not record a deed more foul He was shot in the capitol square while en route to the Sen ate chamber the assassin firing from the third story of the execu tive building which at the time was full of Taylors desperate mountain Republicans who had been brought to Frankfort and housed by the authority of Repub lican leaders There is no excuse made for this murderous cowardly assassination of the chief figure in the contest No attempt was made by the then Governor Tay lor to discover the assassin nor did he show any signs of interest in seeking the arrest of the mar derer Instead he had the militia placed around his building to guard himself and the mountain horde of armed men he had been sheltering for many days We be lieve in law and order and would not unduly reflect on any roan though he be a bitter enemy but in this case it seems that Governor Goebel was the victim of a conspiracy as belish as ever planned by man We believe that a free and fair investigation will re veal the correctness 6f our opinion and that men who stand high politicalcouncils will occupy unenviable positions When Bra tus Caesius and others plunged their daggers into Caesars body they did it in tho open and felt they had saved Rome but in this casemerely to control the politi cal offices for four briefly ears the deadly work was done byn A1tbycowardiY assassin beck Ift t f r4t J edas it seems by an army of des perate party ruffians armed as never before seen in Frankfort and under the control of the then acting Governor Why it was that Taylor in the building from which the shots were fired did not make an effort to have a search made for the assassin has not yn been explained to the law abidi people of this State and natioi Why he did not offer a reward i that time but waited three days is a mystery not yet unraveled and why it was that so mar threats were made throughout tiv State that Mr Goebel would nev er be Governor though the Legislature should decide iu his favor and the Republican leaders were keeping an army of desperate mountain Republicans in the ex ecutivo building stand as eviifmceI that OMr Goebel victim ofan assassin The cir cumstances surrounding thid mur derous deed forces the conviction that a conspiracy to take the life of Mr Goebel to eliminate him from the contest had been made and the one who fired the shot was merely the agent of the conspira tors When passions have subsid ed when men can be quieted by clear heads and an investigation made we would feel glad to have the evidence so clear as to drive from our minds the suspicion of a conspiracy and that the deed was merely the voluntary net fan in dividual asking aud receiving no protection from his political par ty As the cuse now stands it is charged to the Republican party and knowing full well that good Republicans will tOt endorse an assassination no more than good Democrats it is our opinion that the only way the party can dis pose of this stigma is publicly de nounce it denounce the assemb ling of armed mountain men and tho harboring of thorn in the States executive building and then help run down the murderer Mr J W Hurt sheriff of this county and Mr S II Mitchell jailer were in Frankfort at tha tune of the shooting of Governor Goebel Mr Hurt has returned and stated to us that he spent con siderable time with our Representative Hon M R Yarberry while there and that soon after the shooting Mr Hurt Mr Mitchell Mr Yarberry and Mr Lewis the latter the Representative of Muh lenburg county were in Mr Yar berrys room and that Lewis re marked that Goebel ought to have been killed and that he was glad of it Mr Yarberry de nounced the act in no uncertain tones and told Lewis that he ought not to say such things j that it was an outrage Mr Yarberry was bitterly opposed to Mr Goo bel politically but had the man hood and courage to denounce the act of an assassin Lewis seems to represent that character that endorses the assassin who would endorse murder to accomplish his political purposes Fortune will be his who finds the craven wretch who fired on Goebel from ambush Fifty thousand dollars is tho offer made for the arrest and conviction L3gis lature is Democratic in both branches will offer a reward of 50000 for the arrest and conviction o f the as s n s sin of Senator Goebel Owing to the present legal complications this fund will at first be raised by pop ular subscription among leading Democrats who will be given a voucher for the amount they have paid and repaid as soon as the money can be voted from the State Treasury The money will be de posited in the bank and paid to the person who can secure the ar rest and conviction of the proba ble murderer of Governor Goebel The reason for raising the money by subscription is to save time and prosecute the search for tho assassin as quickly as pos sible The proposed reward has undoubtedly been determined upon as time Democratic leaders are authority for the report A dispatch from Frankfort dated tho 1st inst states that anon ymous letters threatening assassination are coming through the mails in considerable numbers They have boon received by the Democratic attorneys and Judges of the Court of Appeals The last words spoken by Gov Gfttbel Tell my friends to be brave Mild fearless and

Complete Retard of the Sinn In the Country Advantage It Is to Ilion I am heartily in favor of the rural t free delivery system said Representa tire Landis qf Indiana and the people of my district arc delighted with it In the territory represented by me there are more rural delivery routes than in any other congressional dis trict in the country and my constit uents are so well pleased with it that if the government chould decide to abolish the system they would pay for its maintenance out of their own pock ets It enables them to have letters and newspapers delivered at their door every morning in the year and in thf way the system is not only a great edu cator but it helps to enlarge the cir culation of the newspapers and is of assistance in a business way to tU farmers It brings them in touch wit the government to some extent The expenditures of the government aggregate more than GOOOCO000 an nually and the farmers naturally asl themselves the question where they de rive any benefit from this enormous outlay They have an answer to it f the mail delivered at their doors am they arc perfectly satisfied and fee that they get sonic return for the taxes they contribute toward the mainten ance of the government The farmer of today is really a merchant and he must of necessity come in closer contact with the markets of the world This can be done by receiving the news papers which give the market quota disposIng In my opinion the farmer is mar entitled to free mail delivery than his brother in the city because it meanS so much more for him to drive eight or ten mies to the post office The city man could pet his mail at the postoffice if the delivery system should be abol ished much easier and with less expenditure than the man in the conn trv Vlira n Uoy Elms a Good
