Powers Knowledge Before the Fad erofGoebel CLEARLY DISTINCTLY PROVEN The prosecution in the Goebel assassination case gave out the following statement after resting its caseIt has been proven that the sho came from the office of the defend ant Caleb Powers First by the direct testimony of two witnesses who saw the rifle when firedand eight others who located the place of firing by the I ijSecondThe window sill from whence the bullet was fired is 13 feet 9 inches higher than the point where i- uck into the tree a distance of 197 feet The descent of the has let was such that it would cross the spot where Goebel fell 53t in ches above the pavement The autopsy found the point of entrance in Goebels body 52 inches from the soles of his feet Add the elevation gained by socks thThirding Goebel was a metal jacketed- steel cartridge smokeless akin not used by the military of Ken cky This fact is establishe- bp A The defendant Powers asked Robert Noaks to get him stael cartridges in December 1899 B Youtsey who had a key to Powers office did procure from a gun store in Cincinnati steel cart ridges 8855 on the 23d of Jan uary 1900 C The bullet fire from the office of the Secretary o State and found imbeded in th tree is a metal jacketed bullet imingeomse v of an inch as caliber Had a leaden bullet been used the wound of exit would have been larger E That the cart- rIdge used was smokeless is evidenced by the fact that of the many witnesses looking at the point from whence the rifle was fired none saw smoke Youtsey clerk and stenographer to Taylor pointed out to W H Culton W S Taylors confidential man that the slickest plan for the murder of Goebel which he could think of would be to raise a window in the Secretary of States office lower the blind point a rifle and fire This exact plan was pursued in killing Goebel Youtsey hadn koy to Powers office given to him by owers brother the day before Goebel was shot Powers letters to his lady- friends andothers in which he declared the disorganized condition of tISie death of Goebel was due more to him than any ono else show that for the time he bolioved he hud earned the plaudits which should given to a hero old that the killing of Goebcl was really as meritorious as tho cabnl had taught themselves and others to believe it would be The testimonyof W H Culton Assistant Auditor of the State that Powers a few flays before t rnhooting of Goebol quarreled with Taylor and was going to send home the mountain men is sign ifareio His description of the quar brding at Powers damned Taylor asua fellow without any backbone and the damning of Powers by Taylor as a hotheaded fool is a circumstance taken in connection with other matters testified to by Culton which establishes the conspiracy beyond a doubt To overcome it Cultons testimony must be destroy ed The testimony of Nooks who for twelve years was the friend and companion of Finley and Powers his declaration that Pow ers desired that desperate men from his company be retained for a purpose of murder his further statement that Powers declared the contest would end as quickly as Goebel was killed means the conviction of Powers unless Pow ers can break Noaks down The testimony of Wharton Gold Powt a adjutant in all maneuvers to bring the mountain ar my his confidant in his lonely walks to the cemetery the man he took with him to Louisville the man to whom he confessed 1that he would ge to Franklin and Polegrove the State and county officials and tell all proves the Powtmony The testimony of Representative Hampton Knox county shows the murderous propensity of Taylor Powers chief when Taylor asked him Hampton to go into Legislature bring on a fight kill enough of his opponents to give him security is of so start nott tt m Eastern Kentucky has a better established reputation for strict honesty and truth that Luke Hampton All the Powers Fin logs and Taylors who can be found in Kentucky united together can not break down Luke Hampton hitweellan a thrice told tale in the evi in this case Powers wn- I ato thdJidm one or the other of the three Powers was accessory before the fact He furnished Youtsey with the key toI get to Ins office He conveniently left his office on the fatal day s that the pretense could be made thde fPowers should not be condemn ed however before the case is finished It is possible but highly probable he may create a rea doubt of his guilt by calling to the stand his coadjutors FROH THE PHILIPPINES I Editor of News- Having heard from my father a fow days ago requesting me to write an account of the Philippines I will now try and do so The rainy season has just commenced and it will be raining most of the time until November the transportation is very difficult outside of Manila and Vigan There are very few towns that have any good roads in most cases we have to travel in mud 8 or 4 feet deep and after marching all day sleep upon the wet ground that is when we are out on the march but the troops that do garrison duty aro quartered in the churches and convents which every town no matter how small haveThe main body of the Insurgents army is broken and Aguin aldo is a fugitive in the mountains but there aro small bands who make life miserable for UB Th mako night attacks nnd in t day they go to the Fort Hills ofof the mountains Every day our men arc capturing arms and ammunition from the insurgents The island has two very large citiesManila and Vigan In Manila you can buy any thing you want but articles are quite expon coheghees JQ streets aro all paved but the si walks are very narrow The houses befit of soft sand stone and nIl paintedwhite The poorer class of Filipinos Jive in bamboo shacks with roof made of nips a long grass There are some well educated natives all over the island and most of the natives can read write Manila has four American wsliofpapers published dally and one afternoon paper Vigan which is about 250 miles north of Manittiis a fine city There is only oho railroad on the island from Manila to Dagu pan 164 miles There are severn fine hospitals on the islands for the soldiers where sick men get the best care that money will buy At present I am in the Second Reserve Hospital with an attac malarial fevert but I expect to be out in a few days The products of these island are rice tobacco hemp and in Home parts copper and gold are found Just at present there is a regiment of infantry here preparing to leave for China to protect American interest there We might be ordered to China within a few weeks It Depends upon what action the Chinese take against our people Last week the Insurgent Ganer al Macabulos surrendered with 200asoldiers and rifles General Peo del Pilar was also captured and is now in prison in Manila Manila can boast ofa very fine police force of Filipinos who are very faithful and are a great help to the Americans There is squadron of Filipino cavalry whic is doing some fine work in fighting the

been invariable No republic has ever governed subject and afFmplre abroad has ended empire or tallness at home But do we believe that William M Kinley if reelected will be formally crowned as the Empire William the first Certainly not This is not usu ally carried through in this way Des potism is the same but type of despot changes When the Roman republic was ripe for its fall the people did not crown a king First one general and then the other came into power through the form of law After the excesses of Marius and Sulla there was temporary revival of constitutional government under Cicero Then the same conferred the powers of a number of different officials upon the Cae sarso many that he was in fact a monarch although inname he was only the head of a republic Then after concentrationhwas systematized and made permanent Rome became in fact a despotism but it was long before it ceased to be nom finally republic and the head of its government was serer king but al ys

days ago Mr Bryan will deliver his speech of acceptance at Indianapolis to day It is said that over fifty thousand voters will hear him The election this fall will bring our government back to the true principles that make a true Re public Bryan will he elected The fifth week of the trial of Caleb Powers is now on The defense will likely close Friday The lawyers in the case will speak five days jLast Friday Mr Bryan finished writing his speech to be delivered at the notification meeting It is almost entirely devoted to imperi alism A primary election has been or dered in the Seventh Congression al district to settle the muddle between Mr Moody and South Trim ble Judge YoB Smithone of the defeated candidates for the Democratic nomination for Gov jsrnor like a true party man spoke at Ricnuioud Monday in tho in terest of Mr Beckham The Situation in China is in deed critical and what will be the fate of the foreigners in Pekin and some other places is a ques tion of absorbing interest to the Powers interested in their rescue At this date dispatches received from the celestial emPireindicate- sthatthe foreigners still live but no assurance that they can be res- cuedr from the vengeance of the powerful Chinese mob A great interest is now felt in our Democratic brethren of the State who heft the party in the fight List year The News has no way of finding the turn of their minds except from reports which reach this office and from what a number of them have told us We have sought peace rather than conflicts Vith those who were for Brown and therefore feupvr but little as to what many of them vill do when they face tho rooster und the cabin in the booth but from various parts of tho county the good news cornea that nearly every man who voted for Brown will vote for Beckham and the full Democratic ticket j yet we occas ionally hear that some will not vote it straight but will vote for Bryan and take tho rest Republican It is our opinion that out of the 90 votes cast for Brown in this county at least 75 or 80 of that number will vote as they had al ways done before tho troubles of last year This fight is not con nected with that of last year and po man can say ought against Mr Bockham No man can criticise the convention that gave him the nomination 1Vo have a clean straight Democratic nominee and it is no more nor no less than a plain fight between the two old parties one the party of law and order the other endorsing Taylor and Taylorism as it appeared in Frankfort last winter In view of the fact that John W Yerkes the Republican nominee stands by the endorsement of the acts of W S Taylor and those associated with him what man of reason could expect from him an admin istration that would redound to the good of the State 2 It is con fidently believed not alone by Democrats but by Republicans ch xt should Yerkes be elected that every man connected with the con spiracy to murder Gocbolmur derer himself would be pardoned This would be in keeping with the endorsement of Taylor for Taylor attempted to pardon every man accused of being connected with the crime Now when Democrats are free from madness when they calmly look the situation over when they sea that this would bo the logical result of the election of Yerkes and the election of Beck ham would meau the opposite we confidently believe that they will with a few exceptions support tho State ticket as heartily as they will the national Most of the men who left the party last year are genuine good citizens men whose zeal for Democracy had nev er wavered until last year when th y felt they could not endorse the methods in Music Hall They have been mad and just as soon as they get in a good humor they will find that their Democratic friends who supported the ticket last year are as honest and as fair as when we all worked together to defeat the common enemy j then they will all come back and harmony will prevail and an old time majority will exist A few of the gold Democrats who have not returned to the aid of the party and who will never be identified with the cause fo which the patty contends are do ing all within their power to keep the Democrats who voted for Brown mad and to prevent them from supporting Mr Beckham They do not speak against Bryan because they know that the Brown men ore to a man for the national ticket yet they will vote for McKinley themselves They are trying to get in their work to place Kentucky under Republican rule but will fail in the attempt Many Democrats who voted for Brown are becoming suspicious of these Democratic saints who left us in 90 and who assisted in cheating Bryan out of the elector al vote of Kentucky It is a ques tion in the minds of free silver men who did not support Mr Goe bel why the gold Democrats who have not announced their in tention to support Bryan should be continually attempting to prej udice them against Mr Beckham and not Mr Bryan They are discovering their real intent and can readily see the object in view is to place Kentucky under Repub lican rule and to secure the elec toral vote for McKinley The Republicans of the Louis vine Congressional district nominated J Capt Irwin a few weeks ago They are now dissatisfied with him and are using their Utmost to have him withdraw in order to put on John Marshall 3 The main and leading question that now confronts the people in national politics is whether or not this government will remain a free Republic or whether it will drift into imperialism whether it shall stand to its former declaration that all people should be free and independent or whether it will launch out on a colonial system that will eventually over turn a republic There is no dudging the issue j the system has already been inaugurated but it is in its infancy Now is the time for action If yon oppose the ownership of the Philippines and other islands in the distant oceans if you oppose a standing army 100000 strong to keep those peo pIe under our control and to pay homage to our government if you oppose the unjust discrimination of taxing the Potoricans now own ed and controlled by this govern ment next November will bet hl1 time to say so The Democratic party stands pledged against such foreign policies j it stands for freedom at home for freedom abroad If liberty at home must live then we mu t abolish national tinvery abroad for sooner or later the sins of the fathers willI be visited upon the heads of the sons We can not have half republic and half empire If tho people of our State are free the people of all States should be free or an eternal clash and contention will exist Chairman Jones of the Nation al Democratic Committee was in Washington a few days ago andI had a conference with Chairman Richardson of tho Democratic Congressional Committee He was very confident and believes that the tendency of public opin ion is strongly turned towards Democracy Among other reasons for his belief he gave these I believe that the imperial policy of the present administration is more heartily condemned by the great mass of the people than any other important position assumbed by any party for many years past and the evident intention of the administration to organize a great standing army is also popularly disapproved We do not attach much weight to the statements of preacher Stamper who tried to impeach Golden He claims that he docs not want an innocent man hung and therefore ho tried to discred it the evidence of Golden by as serting that Golden was to get 5 000 to reveal the plot and at the same time ho admits that he of fered Golden 5000 not to testify It is a lame attempt to protect and shield a party indicted for complicity in the murder rather than to protect the innocent as it seems to us England is pushing her war in South Africa and will soon have tho Boer Republic crushed and while thus engaged in reducing an independent government to subs jects in India are starving and the English government has not ap reliefrand yet this government under the present administration proud and powerful Republic pools its interest with l1g1andits the I lion and the lamb feeding together Men of good reputation have stated that Weaver the man who testified that he saw the shooting of Mr Goebel was not in Frank fort at tho time Weaver has been arrested and will be tried for perjury It is likely that he will spend many months behind the bars for false swearing which in deed should be tho case Former Auditor Stone is a re markably fair and square man In the Powers case last Friday he stated on the witness stand that while Culton one of the accused was in his office he stole 1000 from him yet he permitted Mr Sweeney to retain him in his office and said not n word about the theft The Republicans of the Ninth Congressional district of Virginia ought to induce James Walker to engage in the life insurance busi ness with W S Taylor in Indian apolis it would be better for par ty

charges made again t him by exAuditor Sam H Stone on the witness stand at Georgetown yesterday Culton said There is not a word of truth in the charges made against me I was neve r dirdiarged by Col Stone and was retained in the Auditors office under Mr Sweeney till some time in January During that month Gov Taylor arranged with Mr Sween ney for me to go to the mountains to look after witnesses and Gov Taylor and Caleb Powers stood for my salary I was not stricken from the roll of clerks however andwas never discharged Stone never paid a cent on my account in his life Gultous friends are wondering why Col Stone if he knew the matters he testified to on the stand later intrusted Culton with hundreds of dollars of contest campaign funds and why he recommended Culton for honesty to

have their faults that is that they are nut per fect and are subject to trials and temptations not as great but In some instances the same as men in other callings W e furthermore believe that when the walks aud actions of ministers are straight in all things their examples should be followed by those who are coming after them The il1umblaand two are single butthey all possess genuine Christian character and are universally respected for their Integrity in all matters of business Ordi narily it is unnessary to offer words praise concerning the lives of local ministers as it is expected that they 01farcerned they are due and are entitled the high praise they are receiving for they are men of decided character Are all communities thus fortunately situated Read the dally papers if you please and you will be astounded learn how frequent occurs an announcement 5 that a minister has gone wrong The fact is those who are caught were never right and to doC mischief an opportunity was all that ell was necessary The ministers of Columbia walk prayerfully before their God upright in the presence of their fellowmen the good and despising the acts of the wicked We are proud of of them

influential men in public life who sup ported Mr 3ToKInlcy In lb U aDd who will oppose Ills recllecllon this year because of their condemnation of his unamerlcan policy of imperialism and uillltarUui there Is found unmistakable proof of the maintained strength of true American sentiment in this countrySenator Vest in his authorized In terriew In last Sundays lleiuiljllc did not fall to call attention to this fuel of Republican defection from the ranks of UcKlnlcyism He noted also that the Republicans opposing the Presi dents policy were among tho oldest and most experienced leader of their party the names of Edmunds Sherman Boutwcll Hale and Harrison be- Ing mentioned by Mr Vest In support of the truth of this assertion It is now easy to add to this notable list many other names of Republicans equally wellknown Such conditions- at such a moment are ominous to the administration party It is a reasonable certainty that as the time approaches when a decisive choice must be made between McKIn leyism and Americanism there will be a host of other Republicans wbowlll ilud themselves unable to vote for Empire as against the old Republic Men whose ancestry is traced back to Rev olutionary days cannot shame their olood by betraying the free government established by their fathers Men who have been taught to love the Kcpublic as the very figure incarnate of liberty and justice will nut consent to dishonor the Republic by degrading t to policies of oppression and injuv lice Men who found un1erthfiag- f the Republic a safe refuge from the tyranny of monarchical Europe will never MIst to align that glorious standard with the cruel banners of the Old World in wars of conquest for the subjugation of weaker peoples This is the sentiment against which McKinleyism must prevail at the polls in November if the Imperial President Is to remain in power Itis difficult to believe that the American people shall be seduced into a betrayal of the Republic by the sordid temptations of Empire It will be far more in keep ing with their blood and traditions if in November they administer to the McKlnleyitcs a rebuke so stern and effective that never again shall an American President see fit to lead bin party against his country St Louis Republic Center of Population WASHINGTON Jull30The center of population as shown by tile present census is practically certain to bo in Monroe county Ind about at Bloomington The probabilities are that it will be in the semicircle with a radius ten miles to the north of Bloomington as the center This calculation is based rather more upon the general movement of the population center than upon the returns of this census which arc nit sufficient as yet upon which to base accurate predictions The fact is that the center of population of this coon try moves with great regularity and more slowly than is generally supposed The center of population in the last century has moved so regularly that it has varied less than twentyfive miles north and south It started twenty three miles east of Baltimore in 1700 in north latitude 39 degrees 165 min degreesfitLwThe center has moved westward on about the 30th parallel of latitude In 110 years it has never been farther north than in 1890 and only as far south as 38 degrees 570 minutes in 1830 In 1890 the center was in Deca tur county Ind a little west of south of Greensboro which is the county scat At the next census that is in 1910 it should be about on the ivid ing line between Illinois and Indiana Bloomington Ind will then be the hub of the United States

the history of the world greater than any previ ous Indian famine greater than the terrible famine in Russia three years ago The yearly average rainfall iu India is fortyone Inches In 1899 it was thirty inches the lowest ever known and the famine this year is the consequence The famine prevails over an area 417000 square miles with a population of 54000000 and about 15 per cent of this number or 8100000 is supported by the British Government while 6 per cent Is taken care of by the native States By the end of Summer it is estimated that between 845000000 and 50 000000 will have been expended in behalf of the famine sufferers the great bulk of which has come from the treasury of the British empire Private subscriptions in the United Kingdom have amounted to 81850000 and in this country they have also reached a sumIt IK gratifying to know that a com fortable sum has been sent to the sufferers from Nashville over 850 EO far and we do not doubt that much more I will be contributed It is stated that 2 cents will save the life of a starving person in India a day so Nashvillians who have contributed to the famine fund have the satisfaction of knowing their united efforts have sustained over 2500 people one day Nashville American Story Of A Slave To be bound band and foot for years by the chains of disease is the worst form of slavery George D Williams of
