after listening to hours of argument by the attorney on motions and objections finally reached the stage of examining wit nesses Charles P Weave mayor of Louisville was the first witness called After the examination had proceeded at considerable length Sir Phelps of the Goebel side liSle the question Did the state of facts existing at Louisville on or before November 7 with reference as to pence and good order justify calling out troops on election day Mr Weaver said that owing to incendiary speeches and publications in the newspapers thero was a feeling of unrest but not such he thought as required the military the local authorities he regarded as amply equal to the occasion H P McDonald of Louisville was the second witness He testified as to the entry of antiGoebel inspector inside the polling booths by n man datory order from Judge Toney to the other election officers and also that republican election officers threatened him with arrest by federal marshals for challenging Negro votes He served as a democratic election officer The falling oft in the democratic vote in his precinct he attributed to threats and intimidation The board then adjourned Frankfort Ky Jan 19 Twenty one witnesses were examined by tho gubernatorial boards of contest all of them being introduced by the dem ocrats Twenty of the witnesses tes tified in relation to the socalled tissue ballots all of them saying that the ballots used at the polis in Pike Martin Johnson Knox and Magoffin counties were of so transparent a na ture that the marks made by the rot ers upon them could be seen Jn about

The witnesses at the last session were mainly from Louisville and the prin cipal evidence was in regard to the alleged military interference there Frankfort Ky Jan 21The read inp of the counter claims of the re publican parties to the gubernatorial contest arguments over the admissibility to strike it partially out after its admission comprised the work of the contesting boards and the last mentioned arguments were not con cluded when an adjournment was taken The democratic attorneys made a de termined fight against the admission of the counter claim saying that it covered so much ground anti so many different counties in the state that it would be impossible for them to pre pare evidence to controvert it inside of three months After it had been permitted they dcttired they would make no attempt to offset the allega tions because of the physical impossi bility of bringing to Frankfort the great number of witnesses necessary for the operation ExGov Bradley in asking the board to grant him as much time as possi ble announced that the republicans had subpoenaed 2700 witnesses Irankfort Ky Jan 23The police force of Louisville through four of its officers defended itself

all gave practically the same evidence They declared that orders were issued before election to the members of the police force to inter fere in no way with the election and that the orders were carried out m good faith There was they declared no reason wiry the militia should have been called out by Gov Bradley and no particular reason why any extra policemen should have been sworn in is there was no disturbance at any tine on election day 1latfh of the four officers declared that in his individual opinion the presence of the militia in the arniory de terred many people from going to the polls On crossexamination all of them declared that they did not know the name of any person who was so deterred FIFTYSIXTH Washington rirrtSessio fan wr=S qte Is still in the es 0 the Philippine

rales made known on application There is many a slip twixt the eup and the lip evidently thinks Capt Evans Although he presented his bond and his commission from Sov Taylor in the County Court last Monday and asked that his bond be approvd and he be sworn in as Justice of the Peace yet his motion which was well argued by attorney S D Lewis was overruled am J N Browns bond was approved by the Court and he was sworn in tho he had no commission from th Governor In November las Judge Williams appointed J Brown to fi 1out the unexpired term of his son R L Brown re signed The order was forwarded by the Clerk to the Governor bu it being the last days of Bradley- administration the commission was not issued Gov Taylor came in and on request appointed A Evans totally disregarding Williams order appointing Mr J N Brown Judge Williams takes the position that the power of appointment is vested in him andnot Gov Taylor and hence he refused to approve his Evans bond and refused to permit him t be sworn in although he Presente a splendid bond signed by goo men This question is a new onto the Kentucky bar but he gar rather a lengthy oral opinion from the bench after Messrs Brown Williams and Lewis had argued the question giving his opinion of the Constitution applicable to the apt ointment and the various sections of the Statutes and acts relatin thereto He founded his opinio- on section 152 of the Constitution which pi ovides that the Governor snaIl fill all vacancies for the State atlarge or for districts larger than a county Then the Governor under this section has no authority tofill any vacancy tin any district lessthan a county which this is Section 1527 Kentucky Statut- a vests the power of appointment in the County Judge while Section 3758 gives the Power fib the Governor Judge Williams held that Sec tion 3758 is in conflict with Section 152 of the Constitution and then fore void If Capt Evans desires to make a test he will have to bringa mandamus suit against Judge Williams and then the case will be taken to the Court of Ap peals if it is decided against him in the Circuit Court Gov TAYLOR last week pardoned several of his Mountain friends who were down Frankfort taking in the city While drunk and disorderly they were arrested and large pistols were found them Next morning they we taken before the Police Judg e where they wanted to enter a of guilty if they could only get off with a fine of 25 About this time a messenger arrived on U scene with a pardon from Gov Taylor The pardon of one of the defendants read thus Whereas Fred Thrclkell h- been arrested in Frankfort charged with drunkenness and disorderiy conduct and carrying concealed and deadly weapons said to have been committed in said city and town and believing from the facts submitted to me that he is bei unjustly prosecuted and that is not guilty I now pardon him In this case both men were will lug to admit their guilt ani the weapons taken off of them we tuere in possession of the police men as evidence of their guilt Ont Saturday last several more J such paidons were issued It is a great wrong inflicted upon our good lawabiding peaca le citi insto have such characters turned loose uuwhipped of justice The man that loads up on moan whiskey with a small size cannon in his pocket is a terror to a coun y It is a violation of the law they should be punished as the w Directs There is no reason for their pardon and every good citizen should condemn such an pardonngIpower ExChief Justice Lewis gives ou the following opinion on the Goe belTaylor contest in part UIn making the contest Goebel simply exercised a legal right which a candidate for any other office in the State from Constable up has and which public policy requires to be exercised whatever reasonable grounds exist for doing so Wheth er Goebel has or has not reasonable grounds for his contest it is not my province as a private citizen to say But that his opponents do not regard them as trivial attempts to bribe and overawe members of the General Assembly and threats decisiontn rde the legal Governor and upon tak tt powern ess any act not entitled to official recognition by departeany or What then would be the result of the threatened forcible resistance to a decision favorable to Goebel There might be rioting and blood shed But if a soldier should under order of Taylor claiming to be Gov citizeddthe law would require him to kno legaeIt has been said that failing in forcibly resisting the decision the Judge of the District Court would be applied to for an injunction or some other process by which to prevent the man decided by the legaitas an to enable the man decided not to b such to hold the office I do no believe the Judge of that court would interfere for he has riot a semblance of jurisdiction If how ever he does do so he will subject himself to both a civil action and to impeachment esIhope that upon a sober second thought all will agree in the matter of lire pending conteSt to let the case take its course eThe case against John Whallen charging him with bribery was on last Wednesday dismissed but will be brought up again and investigated by the Franklin county grand jury in April The case was dismissed on the grounds that one of the grand jurors got sick after the investigatlonbegan and another juror had to be substituted in bib stead The
