Taylor of Kentucky at the time that William Goebel, Democratic opponent of Governor Taylor, was elected to the governorship. The political tight had been a particularly bitter one. Armed Conflict had been threatened more than once. On January ISO, 1900, Govenor Goebel left the State House and passed by the building in which vyere the offices of Secretary of the State Caleb Powers. A bullet tired from the offices of Secretary Powers struck Geo-band he fell, mortally wounded. Several other shots were tired but as is developed later so expert was the marksman he did not even aim these at Goebel but relying on his first shot to cause death, lired the others in the air to give the impression that there were several armed men in the secretary's office. Militia Called Out. The wildest excitement prevailed. A mob surrounded the offices of the secretary of state and forced the doors, but a search revealed no one. Armed men, partisans of the different political factions, commenced to pour into Frankfort and several shootings took place. The militia was culled out. On the night of the shooting the contest board of the Legislature met and seated William Goebel as Governor of Kentucky, over tlie claims of Taylor Shortly thereafter Goebel died. Among those arrested on supiciou following the shooting were two both of whom bore evil reputations. While denying that they had .had any part in the shooting, they confessed that Henry Youtsey, Govenor Taylor's stenographer, had approached them with a proposition to murder Goebel. This led to the arrest ol Youtsey. The arrest of other politicians followed in short order, among ffVui Charles hinley, former secretary ol state; F..

The letter was addressed to Senator Smith, of South Carolina, and Kepre-Snative Sims, chairman respectively of the Senate and house interstate commerce committees. Mr. McAdoo explained that to continue government operation for twenty-one months after the formal declaration of peace under the present conditions would mean the disruption of the morale among the employees and officers and could not enable the government to go ahead with the improvements and purchase of equipment.

This orgnnlzntlon linn qundnipled ItJi production reeently simply hy going after oil when It knows It was there. This Is emphasized hy the fnct that tills company has as yet not drilled what la technically called one dry bole, that Is, u well. As a result It announces a HH linrrcl well Juat drilled In" In the "Mf Sinking District" u well In Lee County, and a UM Imrrel well 20O-tMt- near Torrent, Ky.

To accommodate this product the entire refining plant of the Consolidated Oil Refining Company of Bast Si. Lulls has been purchased anil will be literally removed in its entirety to Benttyville.

The establishment of the plant at Beattyvllle will be followed bv the construction of an additional plant for the manufacture of lubrica lng oils and paralline wax. Future Possibilities. With tb prospect of increasing the number of new wells by 10 or mole Within the next six months, the .Me- Combs Producing and lie fining OoMr pany is Justified in believing that at least $1,000,000 worth of oil will be sold from the property within the next six months. Adding to this the profits of refining, and marketing in its own cars, it easily takes rank us the foremost Independent oil compuny In Kentucky. It must be remembered that the liu- niense acreage as yet undeveloped con- tains possibilities of future profitable expansion which can hardly be calculated. It includes over 17,000 seres In the Eastern Kentucky oil belt. Under the able executive management of Ah ruin Renlck, the president f the compuny, and the field management of J. C.
