THE PACT Frankfort Nov 11 l00lHon Win field T Durbin Governor of Indiana Indianapolis IndSir Your refusal to honor the requisitions sometime ago sent you by me ankin fur the tradition of WS Taylor and Charles Finley fugitives hum justives front this State charged with being accesso ries to the murder of William Guebel was not unexpected but the remarka ble letter with which accompanied the return of the papers was Indeed a surprise to me and I sincerely regret the necessity of this reply It is true I bad been reliably informed ihib you had incurred ixuipaign oblivious which committed you to the prjtictiou of these two valuable adjuncts to your political fuiiuueti and they had been promised immunity from arrest under requisitions from lha Kentucky authorities in the uveut olyoiir election as Governor 1 his information has been coutiruiid by your conduct and by the complete ssuse of protection under vhicn these two wen bccm to have restedslncer jour iucutubeiicy of the office You are

treated with the silent contempt they so just y deserve but as they come from you as the Governor of a great Stac shall not hesitate to hoed you upuu public scorn antI show how unjust and unfounded arc the willful and inexcu sable misrepresentations in your let ter NOT A CONSCIENTIOUS CONVICTION When your predecessdrYtho late Gov Mountjrefused to honor similar requi sitions madaon him by me Ideclined to criticise him because while he had acted under gross misrepresentations to him as to the facts and an erroneous conception of his official power In the matter I yet believed that he had been governed by honest and conscien tious convictions Icannot say so much for you You are not entitled to such an excuse for when with the record In your bands you deliberately mis quote that record in order to forge a libel against the courts and citizens of this State tbe plea of ignorance can not entered ia your behalf For getful of the duties and proprieties of the exalted position yon occupy as the Chief Executive of a sovereign State and blinded with partisan bate you have not only cast an insult upon a brave and generous people but you have also exercised a power which bas been expressly denied you by the Con stitutions and laws of the United States which you swore to uphold and support when you took the oath of fice NO DISCRETIONARY POWEll In your letter refusing these requisi tions you say I choose to make use of the right and the duty as the Executive of the Commonwealth to exer else a discretionary power of refusal Let us see what the law is as to this discretionary power1 Since I have been Governor of Kentucky I have never refused to honor the requisition of the Governor of any State aid honored no less than a dozen issuedup on me at different times by the Governor of Indiana It bas been my view mateters was purely ministerial not discrer thatewhenever a requisition was presented f 1 me with the papers properly made out It was my diityioot to try thecae but to issue the proper warrant of ar rest fur the fugitive and have him surrendered the proper officer But it is not necessary to argue this ques tion A statement of the law is sum cleat to convince anyone save an apol ogist of Goebels assassination In ar ticle Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States is the following provision Fugitives fount Justice- A person charged In any State with treason felony or other crimes who shall flee from justice and be found iu soother State shall on demand of the Executive authority of the State from which he fled be delivered up ty be re moved to the State having jurisdiction of the crime Then Section 5278 of the Revised Statutes of the United States reads as followsWhenever the Executive authority of any State or Territory demands any person as a fugitive from justice of the Executive authority of any State or Terri Cory to tt hich such person has fled and produces a copy of an indictment found or an affidavit made before a Magistrate of any State or Territory charting the porno demanded with having committed treason felony or other crime certified as authentic by the Governor or Coief Magistrate of the State or Territory whence the per sju sochargcd has lied it shall be the duty of the Executive authority of the State or Territory to which such person lids fled to cause him to be arres te aud secured and to cause notice of the arrest to be given to the Executive authority making such demand or to the agent or such authority appointed to receive the fugitive and to cause the fugitive to be delivered to such agent when he shall appear SUPREME COURT UULIKO Observe that the word shall Is used in both the constitutional provis ion aud in the statute Thy expres sion it shall be the duty does nut allow and discretionary power But in order to avoid any discussion what ever as the meaning of the law let us examine the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States in regard to it In the case of Kentucky vs DeuuisonG5 U S Reports where the Governor of Ohio had refused to deliv er a fugitive asked for by the Governor of Kentucky that court while refus lug to grant the mandamus asked for claiming that it had no power to grant it In such a case nevertheless said the Chief Justice delivering the opinion of the courtIt be observed that the judi cial acts which are necessary to author izethe demand ara plainly specified in the act of Congress and the certificate of the Executive authority is made conclusive as to their verity whenprc sented to the Executive of the State where the fugitive Is found lie hasI no right to look behind them or toI question them or to look into the char acter of the crime specified in this ju dicial proceeding The duty which he is to perform is as we have already said merely mlnlsterial that is to cause the party to arrested and de livered to the agent or authority of the State where the crime was corn mitted It is said in thcargument that the ExecutlvKOfflcer upon whom this demand is made mus have a dis cretionary Executive power because he must inquire ariddecide who is the person demanded nut this certainly is not nfscrettonaryduty upon which he is to exerdlse any judgment but is merelyia ministerial dutythat is to do the act required to be done by him and such as every Marshal and Sheriff must perform when process either criminiil or civilisplacedin his hands to be staved on the person named in it And it has never been supposd that this duty involved any discretionary power or made him anything more than a mere ministerial officer and such is the position and character of the Executive of the State under this law when the demand is made upon him and the requisite evidence produced The Governor has only to issue ks warrant to an agent or officer to the party named in the demand IS TINTBTJE TO HIS OATII I commend tberitlrC01Jinto hi this case for yonr perusal and study with the hope that you may profit by its in struction and sot again when dealing with such matters sp ak of discre tionary power Eemenibertoo that the constructionplaced upon the Con stitution by the highest court in the latid becomes itself a part of that in 5L rt to strument which you took an oath when you became Governor of Indiana to support A comparison of your letter with the decision of the Supreme Court is sufficient to show whether or not you have been faithful to that oathPassing on from showing how you have disregarded the Constitution aud law ofyour country I will proceed to show bow you have perverted the record in the recent trial of Caleb Powers and sought by such action tobrinn dis credit upon an honorable and upright Judge whose life of public service has been unstained by u single dishonora ble act and whose character as a man and a jurist stands unitupeached among the good people of this State WHERE RECORD WAS PERVERTED You criticise the recent trial of Pow ers and denounce Judge CantrIll for his instructions to the jury You say in your letter he instructed it that it might convict on the testimony of one alleged accomplice It that testimony was corroborated by that of another alleged accomplice that it uiightcon vict the defendant for the act of an other man to which the defendant had never agreed etc To show how un true the statement is I reproduce from the record the exact instruction of the Judge in that case on this point Eighth The jury cannot convict the defendant upuu the testimony of an accomplice or of accomplices uultss the testimony be corroborated by other evidence tending to connect the de fendant with the commission of the offense and the corroboration is not sufficient it merely shows that the offense was committed and the circum stances thereof Is this a manly way to attack anyone Is it right and proper to manu facture evidence to blacken if possi ble his Character You insfnuiite too tbatthe Judge has been influenced in his trials of these cases by his aspirations as a candidate fur the United States Senate If rumor speak true you are not above suspicion iu that respect yourself and the rancorous spirit of your lett shows that you are making a bid for the support of the implacables and radicals In your own party with a view to that cad I doubt the wisdom of your policy t j secure such an honor The people of Indiana love fair play and although at times stirred to a high pitch of ex citement in political contests they ire nevertheless broadminded Cri and obedient to the law MyconliJence in thorn audio their civil institutions is so great that I will never while Governor of Kentucky cast a reflection tpon them or upon their courts by refusing to surrender to them a violator of their law wbeQ properly demanded even though the fugitive should be of my own political faith and charged with conspiring murder his political opponent whom he could not defeat otherwise The good people of yonr State do not indorse you in this matter GIVES HIM TILL LIE DIUiiCT I wish to call attention to another misstatement your letter You say you have on file letters and protests from many representative Democrats of this State prominent in the organi zation of the party and from editors of Democratic newspapers asking you to refuse to honor these requisi tions I make the assertion and you cannot disprove itby producingsuch a letter that not a Democrat in Ken tucky belonging to the organization of the party nor the editor of any Democratic newspaper has made such arepuest of you I have no doubt that some of thp people who have urged you not tofjive up these men did so not because they thought fair trials would be denied them but because they feared that closer investigations into this crime would disclose their part In the con Is no doubtnow that the assas sination of William Goebel on the State Capitol grounds was the result of a deliberate and carefully planned conspiracy that be was thug front a window in the office of the Secretarj of State not over forty feet from tut Governors office where W S Taylor was when the shot was fired that Taylor immediately bad all the entrancc to thebunding guarded and forbid theadmission of the peace pfflcrrs who sought to enter and search for the assassin that he threw every obstacle in his power in the way If preventing the arrest and conviction of any nn suspected of the crime that ho issued hlspardnnstQsoraeof those undersea J I cj picion even before their arrest arid in dictment that he wasprcsumiby the beneficiary In the dsatb of Vtilliaiu Goebel who was contesting with hlw the title to the governorship of Ken tucky that he refused to recognize the writ of habeas corpus filled the State capital with over a thousand armed desperadoes and threatened the entire State with revolution and anarchy aud that today be is a cringing sup pliant at your feet begging that he be not given over to trial on an Indictment charging him with being a con spirator in the murder of his success ful rival NO INNOCENT TO liE 1UNISUED It would be no satisfaction to any one to punish an innocent man for this crime The mind of any civilized man revolts at such an idea The brother and friends of the murdered Governor simply demand the punishment of those who conspired to kill him Ro political advantage could be gained by any one or any party in con vict ng the tw 0 Sto confessed criminals now basking In the smite of your pro tectiug care They are certainly not political factors now sufficient to excite fear in the humblest heart and if they arc innocent a Kentucky jury and Kentucky courts would throw around tlniu every possible protection and vindication You show in your letter itself that they arc not in clitger of judicial persecution when you call attentioa to the reversal of the case of Howard and the first trial of Powers by the Court of Appeals of this State That court is composed of seven up right and honorable Judges four of whom are of the same pyliUcal party as yourself and these two fugitives That court would certainly never permit a judgment of Judge CantrlUs court to stand if what you say about it is true CHANGE VEX UK NOT ASKED You askWhy in the recent trial of Caleb Powes should judicial pro prieties have beeu outraged by the re fusal ofJudgeCantnll lI to give change of venue from his hearing Another misstatement Powers did not ask fur such a change In his lira trial he did ask it and it was changed by moving the case from Franklin county to Scott county under our law which requires a Judge in granting a change of venue to send it to an adjacent coun ty within the Famtf district You ask agjli What was tl e object in appniplating Sl 0000 for the conviction of Mm MISJUCII n ttnli ier of William Oinjbej nv a nue jfCt

such a bodyof able jurists chos en to interpret the law and ad minister justice would be led by cr partisan feelings to lean toward one or the other parties in a con n test Of course an accusation a suspicion of this kind would be outrageous since the court stands four Republicans and three Democrats It is not likely that the Republican press will denounce this decision It will not accuse the court of playing politics but will concede a just decision back ed by law and justice and com J mend it for Ie a v in g the low and groveling methods of par tisan decisions and erecting and justice Mr Pratt will not be censured foil waiting until the Court of Appeals had become Re publican before he urged his case tMjHis course does not present the t idea to the Republican press that fieVas waiting and seeking special favors from the court to win his case The decision does not mean to them that the Republican mom bers of that body were actuatedt by partisan feelings but it im v presses them that the minority is the same old bitter partisan Democrats The Republican press has denounced our courts as par tison unjust and contemptible It hap exhausted all its bitterness to degrade any and every decision that has been rendered simply t because their contentions failed As abovestated we accept the de ji2ciaioa becaUse it is legal The Re h r s publican press in commenting on the righteousness of their action does not mention the fact that the Court openly reversed itself in a number of cases in rendering this decision It would have been infinitely better for this State and for various members of the Re publican party had they proceeded as Mr Pratt to keep within the confines of the law instead of seeking to overthrow legal pro ofrterror and anarchy resuliug in murder and the debauching the fair name of our Commonwealth In last weeks issue of The News a short article concerning the re ported destruction of so many licit stills by the Deputy Collec tors who have been working this section brought from Mr W T Hawkins of Lebanon a lengthy article published in the Columbia Spectator We did not mean any reflection whatever upon the gentleman who seems to be hurt but in a plain honest way pointed out a path that would meet with the hearty endorsement of all people of our section who are interested in the destruction of illicit still ing It seems that Mr Hawkins views us as a critic of his actions and from that standpoint he re cites the many troubles of fighting the Shiner of the unpleasantness of the warfare and the im practicableneES of bringing the stills from the dark ravines and splintering them in the open cay light We know nothing about the business and have no desire to make a raid and further do not claim be posted in the laws governing the duties of Deputy Collectors Now Mr Hawkins we simply have this to say We did not intend to reflect upon your bravery you honor or your faith ful discharge of duty neither was it intended toapply in that manner to your good friend Maj R A Hancock We have regarded you as an active fearless and efficient officer Your retirement as Dep uty Collector brings no joy to us It is true that in last weeks issue we stated that our townsman Mr Geo Nell would succeed you in u few weeks That his appointment would prove a good one and that we were glad that ho had secured the position but this merely expressed our good will toward one of our citizens to a personal friend and carried no dislike for you The truth is that Mr Sapp has had his day that Mr Boreing is iu thu height of his glory and the full of the ote imd the rise uf the other does not aiiVct us In our mind it BUIIB uguiust sume POLITICAL ASSASSINATION Springfield rasa Republican Governor Durbin of Indiana fol lows the example of his predecces sor in office by refusing to honor the requisition of the governor of ofroxGovernor Taylor The latter as is well known is under indictment for complicity in the assassi nation of William Goebel nearly two years ago It was while Mr Taylor was acting as Governor of Kentucky and when thd Kentucky legislature in accordance with the laws of the state was sitting in judgment on the disputed election in which Goebel and Taylor were the contestants that an armed crowd of Republican mountaineers was brought to the state capital from eastern Kentucky and Goe bel was shot down from a window of the executive building unques tionably by one of these men who had come to the capital either at the instigation or with the approv al of Governor Taylor and the oth er Republican officer of the State Governor Taylor continued in office some time after the Legislature had degpdagainst his claim Several men arrested on the charge of being conce per d in the murder were pardoned by him He was himself finally indicted as an ac complice along with Caleb Powers Republicaff Secretary of State CharlesITnloy Secretary of State in the jnwvlous Republican admin iBtratsh and others Taylor and Finlevfled to Indiana and have not since entered Kentucky Fin ley figures in the present requisi tion upon Governor Dnrbiu Gov ernor Taylor while thus a fugitive from justice as the term is has been received with honor and ap plause at a Republican national convention and President Roose volt while governor of New York was reported as offering to Taylor a secure asylum in tbatState In t diana however under a Republican governor affords all protec tion needed We should say that this parti san shielding of Taylor has gone about far enough It has come to partake of the character of Repub lican condonement of the assassi nation Governor Durbin states in his communication to the gov ernor of Kentucky that only a con viction that Taylor will not re ceive a fair trial leads him to deny the requisitian But he says Does not the action of the court of appeals of Kentucky in its reversal of the initial convic tions In Judge Cantrills court emphasize the contention of the governor of this commonwealth that these men sought to be extra dited cannot have a fair and just answer would certainly seem to be that the action of the Kentucky court of appeals goes tt show that the due and fair proc esssea of justice in Kentucky have not been wholly suspended in this matter and are less likely to be now with the murder two years back than when the trials refer red to took place Whether the governor of one state is thus justified in refusing extradition and in impeaching the agencies of justice in another state is a question open to but one an swer Governor Durbin says he chooses to make use of the right and the duty as the executive of the commonwealth to exercise a discretionary power of refusal The constitution of the United States provides- A person charged in any state with treason felony or other crime who shall flee from justice and be found in another State shall on demand of the executive authority of the State from which he fled be delivered up to be removed to the state having ju risdiction of the crime This does not seem to leave much discretion to Governor Dur bin There has been question of the nature of the other crime referred to but it has never been questioned that the term would cover such a crime as that charged against Taylor and the weight of legal opinion leans to the inch ion of all offense big and little even statutory offenses peculiar to the State requesting the extradition And in regard to the discretion of a governor in honoring a requisition from another state the federal courts have decided in a case coming up from Kentucky that tim Governor hUd no discretion butto obiy the duupiud ti plait harmony with the cunstiuiuoii But there exists uu pjwer to coin pel the governor to ubny and it is upon the nonexistence of 6ucha power that Governor Durban rests his refusal and nut upon constitu tioual right or interstate comity or that other constitutional provi sion requiring that full faith and credit shell be given m each state- to the public acts and tile judi cial proceedings of every other state If the Governor Dtirbiu example should be generally fol lowed by the executives of other states this union would be conver ted into a veritable united protec torate ofcrimeeaoh state con stituting itself an asylum to fugi tives from justice from every oth er state and a supreme judge of the character of the government and judicial processes of every oth er state It is a highhanded proceeding look at it how you will and it can not but figure in the popular wind as tending to thow that republL cans hold rather easy views of assassination when democrats are the victims If Governor Durbin is justified in acting as he does the Democratic governor of Ken tucky would have been justified in refusing to extradite the murderer of President McKinloy had he managed to escape into that state on the ground that a fait trial could not be had under the cir cumstances in New Yorkstate By such a precedent political as sassination tends to
