Frankfort Ky Feb 5 WilliamGoe bel died Saturday evening at 644 His last words spoken were addressed to Dr Furnish state senator from Boone county at 545 lie called him by name and asked to be given a drink of water At 0 he nodded assent when the physicians asked if he would at tempt to take liquid nourishment Soon thereafter he fell into complete unconsciousness and so remained until the end At 630 when it was apparent that the end was near the physicians left the room Only the brother and the sister of the dying man Arthur Goe bel and Mrs lironnecker entered the room and were the only ones present when the death summons came Justus Goebel a brother of the dead statesman with his wife and two children Avlfo had been traveling night end day for four days as fast as steam twould carry him from Phoenix Ariz arrived one hour too late in his race against death Coy Goebels death was not made public for some time after it had oc curred In the meantime messengers summoned democratic leaders quietly to the room of Senator Blackburn on the same floor of the hotel Arrange meats were soon made for transferring the office and authority of gov ernor to Lieut Gov Beckham Dr McCormack was present and Mr Shackelford in his notarial capacity as clerk of the court of appeals swore Dr McCormacks signature to the affi davit of death Gov Beckham then took the oath of office After he signed it and affirmed the oath he said And may God help me to meet this responsibility We all trust that he will said Col Young and there was a murmur of Amens It was in subdued and solemn tones that GOY Beckham received the congratulations of those who witnessed his induction into office Immediately after Gov Beckham had been sworn in the news of GOY Goebels death was made public The effect was a general demonstration of grief such as Frankfort had never seenAlthough the burial will take place in Frankfort in accordance with the wishes of the friends of the dead man the funeral services will be held in CovSngton his home The remains will be taken to Covington on a special train The train will consist of three cars one car for the casket and the J actual pallbearers A private car will f be furnished the relatives of the dead man while a sleeper will be furnished for the members of the legislative committee which leas not yet been se lected judges of the court of appeals and other political friends Tuesday morning the remains will be conveyed to Odd Fellows hall in Covington and from 830 in the morn ing until 10 oclock in the evening will lie in state the hall being kept open in the evening to allow the working people an opportunity to review the remainsThe funeral services will be ex tremely simple in deference not only to the wishes of Mr Goebel but also of the members of his family There will be a guard of honor in Covington selected by Arthur and Justus Goe bel consisting of 50 citizens but out side of this there will be no ceremony or display of any land Even the fu neral cortege will be lacking Wednesday morning the remains will be brought back to Frankfort and placed in the big ball room of the Capitol hotel where they will lie in state all that day Some apprehen sion is felt of trouble on that day as it is believed from 30000 to 50000 strangers will be in the city to view thiL remains of the democratic leader t and bitter feeling engendered by his death may result in a clash Precau tions are being taken irrespective of party to prevent trouble and no se ious outbreak is looked for f Tic interment will take place Thurs day from the Capitol hotel but the actual arrangements for the burial have as yet not been decided on The remains will be buried in the cemetery overlooking the Kentucky river where lie the remains of Daniel Boone Vice President Richard Johnson and sev eral Kentucky governors eminent ju rists and soldiers Already a movement has been start ed to erect a fitting monument for Mr Goebels memory on the spot in the state house grounds where he was shot An Autopsy Held Frankfort Feb 6An autopsy was held on the body of Gov Goebel Mon day morning conducted by Drs Hume Williams and Tobim Col Jack Chinn told graphically and specifically the position Goebel was lit when he fell The important fact brought out was that the exact angle taken by the bullet was demonstrated beyond a ques tion of doubt Goebel had his right foot forward and his right shoulder and arm thrown back and lowered somewhatIt while in this position that he was shot and the angle thus as certained established the height front the ground from which the assassin fired his shot On the strengthof these conclusions the democratic leaders are asserting that a straight line extended from the spot Where the shooting occurred would exactly reach the attic windcw of the exeeu tive building from which it is alleged the fatal shot was fired This week a man will be placed in the exact position in which Goebel was when he was shot and measure ments taken The doctors found that the bullet pierced the lower portion of the right lung causing immediate suspension of digestion and paralyz ing the kidneys Gov Taylor Adjourus Legislature Frankfort Ky Feb INeyer was there a more complicated political situation than that which confronts the politicians of Kentucky and ncr er was there one of which it seemed so difficult to form an accurate guess at the outcome Gov Taylor issued a proclamation declaring that a state of insurrection existed in Kentucky and particularly in the city of Frankfort and because of this he adjourned the legislature to meet at London Laurel county on February Goebel Sworn In Frankfort Ky Feb 1 William Goebel was shortly before 9 oclock last night sworn in as governor of Kentucky and J C W Beckham a few minutes later took the oath of lieutenant governor The oath was administered to both men by Chief Justice Hqzlerigg of the court of ap pealsMr Ooebel was propped up with pil lows and was unable to raise his hand only with the greatest difficulty as he listened to the words of Judge Ilazlerigg When the oath had been given Mr Goebel sank back exhaust ed the effort having been almost too much for his strength Immediately upon leaving the room where he had sworn in Mr Goebel Judge Hazlerigg went to an adjoin ing room where he swore in Mr Beckham as lieutenant governor This done he returned to his home Gov Taylor Defied Frankfort Ky Feb 2Two direct slaps were given Gov Taylor by public officers who declined to obey his orders The first came from Presi dent Rodman of the Farmers bank which is a state depository Some vouchers on the bank were signed by Gov Taylor in favor of some of the militia officers who wanted money for their companies When they were presented at the bank payment was refused President Rodman said that he did not see how he could payout the money on orders signed by Gov Taylor until he knew for certain who was the actual governor of Kentucky He had asked an opinion from the at torney of the bank he said andwhen accordinglyHechance of paying out money until he was satisfied that he was acting under proper authority The second instance was when Gov DouglasHayesitentiary who is serving a fiveyear term for manslaughter having been sentenced in March 1899 When the pardon was sent to Warden Lillard he decided that he could not turn the man loose until he was satisfied re garding the legal status of the governorship He made no reply to Gov pardoncommissioners of his action Conflict of Authority Frankfort Ky Feb 3The first clash between the executive and judiciary powers of the state has occur red and a still greater clash is immi nent and beyond lies a sea with skies so lowering and so stormy an aspect that no politician of either party can predict where it will carry the Kentucky ship of state There is the chance that things will as Congressman June Gayle expresses it drift around all right but there are other chances also and if things are to drift around all right they must strike a counter current and strike it soon The first clash came when Alonzo Wager a stenographer employed by the democratic attorneys was placed under arrest In the capital grounds charged with conduct tending to in cite mutiny and riot The conduct consisted in pinning to the door of the private office of Gov Taylor a notice that the democratic attorneys would appear before Judge Catitrill of the circuit coUrt and ask for ail injunc tion restraining Gov Taylor from nil interference with the movements of the legislature and from his announc ed attempt to remove it to London in this state Wftlkef was at once ta ken into custody by orders of Col Roger Williams the commanding officer of the force now gathered around the capital Injunction Agitinut Taylor Frankfort Ky Feb Judge Can trill of the circuit court Saturday morning granted a temporary injunction restraining Gov Taylor from hi terfering with the meetings of the legislature and from removing the seat of the legislature to London Ky The temporary injunction is to re main binding until February 8 when the hearing to make it permanent will be heard before Judge Cantrill at Georgetown Ky- Immediately after the issuance of the writ Judge Cantrill instructed Sheriff Suter of Franklin county to make no effort to present the order of courtTaylor Offers It Reward Frankfort Ky Feb lGo Taylor has personally offered a reward of 500 for the arrest and conviction of the man who shot Gov Goebel In making the offer of the rewm d Gov Taylor states that the authorities of Franklin county in which the crime was committed have never requested him to officially offer a reward and he therefore offers 500 as an indi vidualTaylor Appeals to McKiiilcy Washington Feb 2Gov Taylor has sent a communication to Presi dent McKinley which is in its nature a memorial It goes at great length into the situation in Kentucky mak ing an explanation of the condition there No Federal Interference Washington Feb 3 AKentueky del egation consisting of Senatorelect Blackburn Representatives Rhea Smith Allen and Gilbert and exn p resentative Thompson called on Pres ident McKinley Friday to protest against any federal interference in that state Senator Lindsay was also there but did not come with the other gentlemenThe said that federal interference in Kentucky would be sure to result in serious trouble as the first movement of troops would cause an uprising that could not be easily quelled They expressed the opinion that the difficulties would be adjusted without further violence if the people of Kentucky were allowed to settle the matter themselves After leaving the white house Sen Washington Feb 3At the cabinet meeting Friday it was decided that the situation in Kentucky is not such as to require federal interference and consequently the president will take no action under the present condi tions- A Conflict Averted Frankfort Ky Feb 5Armed conflict between the civil authorities of Franklin county and national guard of the state of Kentucky has been averted and unless new causes should come to the front there is small like lihood that the political situation will again become as threatening as it has been during the last 48 hours Gov Taylor Sunday morning or dered the release of Alouzo Walker for the possession of whom Judge Moore had declared that Sheriff Suter would swear in a posse and take pos session of the capitol grounds if such an extreme became necessary While not recognizng in his action the exist ence of the writ of habeas corpus which had been sworn out on behalf of Walker Gov Taylor by releasing the man removed the most threaten ing sign of trouble The commanding officers of the troops which guard the capitol grounds are careful to say that the situation is entirely a military affair and that they extend the writ of habeas corpus very little consideration but whether they regard it or not Walker is free and Sheriff Suter will not be called upon to summon force in the attempt to secure his re lease Peace in Sight Louisville Ky Feb 6A confer ence between accredited representa tives of the two state governments was held at the Gait house in this city as a step toward bringing about a peaceful settlement of the disturbed political conditions now existing Aft er many hours of deliberation an agreement was reached which if car ried out the strife which rent Ken tucky from end to end for the past few weeks will be ended The agree ment was reached shortly after mid night and arrangements were imme diately made to have it drawn up and signed This was slow work how ever and it was after 2 oclock when the conferees separated The demo crats gained nearly every point they contended for and the republican rep resentatives Lieut Gov John Mar shall Gen Dan Lindsey and Attorney David Fairleigh gave assurances that the agreement would be accepted by Goy Taylor The agreement provides that in or ler to leave no question as to the title of Wiii Goebel and J C W Beckham to the offices df governor and lieuten tint governor respectively the general assembly shall pass a resolution in joint assembly validating the acts on that subject since the legislature has been prevented from holding its regular session at Frankfort As soon as the legislature does the same Beck hams title to the office of governor is not to be questioned Immunity io Be Granted Taylor The democrats grant immunity to- GO Taylor find his associates from prosecution for treason usurpation of office or of contempt of court for which it has been done since the shooting of Gbebel These matters are to be held in abeyance until next Monday The republican legislature is to be Withdrawn from London im mediately and no filibustering or oth er attempts of this charrtcter is to be resorted to by the republicans to ob struct the carrying out of this agreement in the legislature The democrats suggested in the favor of the gret crowds in Frank fort during the Goebel funeral cere moniesthe soldiers should be with drawn The republicans asked that an adequate guard be left to protect Gov Taylor and his associates- It was finally agreed to leave to Gen Daniel Lindsey one of the re publican conferees the decision as to how many troops should be left to prevent a clash as a result at the Goe bel funeral the republicans to begin at once time withdrawal of troops from FrankfortIt that the board of elec tion commissioners sitting as a con test board should be allowed to meet at Frankfort without molestation the democrats agreeing that no sum mary action be taken on these contests and that nothing be done with out due hearing of evidence and ar gument The Gocliel Election Law Time republicans asked that some provision for a repeal oi1 modifica tion of the Goebel election law be in cluded in the agreement The demo crats agreed that two leading repub licans and two leading democrats should be left the matter of suggest ing changes in the Goebellaw be lievtd td be wise The acceptance of this agreement by the principals is the only element of uncertainty now remaining in the situation Naturally there is no ob jection from the democrats and the attitude of Gov Taylor will certainly be known within a few hours How accurately the republican con ferees represent Gov Taylor or how nearly the hitters acquiescence is necessary to the carrying out of the plans agreed upon can only be determined by the events of the next 24 hours fussed Through the Lines Frankfort Ky Feb GGo Taylor made a distinct and positive offer to submit the merits of his claim to the gubernatorial chair of Kentucky to any three fairminded men in the world these three men to be selected by the United States supreme court lIe will allow them to arbitrate the ease and will abide by their decision This announcement he made to a cor respondent in his office in the executive building Thedeclaration was at once wired by the correspondent to Lieut Gov John Marshall and Attorney David W Fairleigh republican members of the political conference held at Louisville The rule that no civilians should be allowed to enter the capitol building which has prevailed since the legisla ture was compelled to leave it one week ago was relaxed in favor of the state board of election commissioners They were permitted to enter their office in the capitol for the purpose of attending to sonic routine work rela tive to the contests made by the democratic candidates for minor places on the state ticket at the GoebelTaj lor election They were kept waiting for an hour at the south gate of the capitol grounds before they were ad mitted however The lawyers were stopped at the gate The commis sioners went to their office in the building and remained only for a few minutes as they were unable to at tend to their work there without the assistance of the attorneys No action was taken in any of the contests Although every leader of the demo cratic party is now away from Frank fort it is understood and believed by such of those who remain here that the democratic party in case of a failure to agree with the republicans in Louisville will at once proceed to or ganize a state government Iii order to do this with the least possible delay it is necessary that the contests for the minor positions on the state ticket shall be determined immediate ly GOY Beckham has at the present time no secretary of state no treas urer and no auditor It will be impossible of course for him to transact state business untJi these officers have been seated and it is with the object of facilitating matters in this respect that the election commissioners are now at work All these contests arc little more than matters of form ev cry one of them

Legacy To the Loyal and True WHERE IN KENTUCKY Shall We Find His Lilc AgalnrhoSlia Take ITp Ills Cause With Courage Ability and Zeal Saturday night the sad and heart rending message came that Gov Gebel was deadand Sunday mornings paper confirmed the report in bold head lines The dai lies brought the dreadful news to many a home throughout Kentucky which made the Sabbath as heavy hearted as the day was rainy and disagreeable on the out side The Governor grew worse rapidly Sat- urdaY afternoon from 230 oclock until his deathmost of the time being unconscious It was a sad scene around his deathbed and out in the long hall and down in the corridor ofthe big Capitol Hotel i strong men ground in mornful ago ny grave and dignified Senators judges lawyers doctors and preachers bowed their heads and tears trickled down their manly cheeks and noble women wept like children If some ofour churchgoing lawabidingh e a 1 t h restoring citizens who have anx iously and boastfully wished fori his death could have witnessed the scene their partisan hatred would have melted into a patriots admira tion for the dying man Boys William Goebel is dead and he was slain by an assassin bullet but there is one sweet and cheering consolation given in this dark hour of gloom that he is not altogether lost to us His in structi tns will be heeded his ad wise will be granted and his ex pressions and thoughts will form parts of our discussions and debates His legislation will be frequent Temiriders of his genius of his wisdom and judgment of his in terest in and feeling for the com mon people In youth his trials were many his early manhood was filled with struggles against besetting obstac Jles and in has latter days slander lies of the most vicious kind and elheapedwith this they planned to take his life and that by the cowardly hand of an assassin concealed in Gov Taylors building It is terrible yes horrible to think that a man who goes into court 10 get his legal rights must be shot down and killed when on his way to perform those duties to which the people had elected him without a moments warning of the assassin without a chance to meet and com bat his wouldbe slayer On his cvay to the Senate chamber where it was his sworn duty to go and then to be stopped so unexpectedly and so suddenly by that murderous bullet that plowed its way through his body and felled him to the pavement make his death all the more sad and unfortunate Truly these are trying times But we implore and beg of you each and all to keep cool Say nothing that will wound any ones feelings Do not discuss the sub ject with rank and rabbi partisans Give no insult It will not bring Senator Goebel back and were he alive this day he would say now as he said just after he was shot Do no act of violence Fear not fellow citizens the law will be vindicated and justice will finally prevail From Mondays CotnerJout ga- llie lies dead at Frankfort He can never again speak for himself We take leave to speak for him but in his behalf in defense of the goodname which he wished to leave behind him now dear only to the bereaved ones of his own fami ly though honored by his political associates for he lived a lonely isolated life was cheekby jowl with no one a simple student who aspired to be a leader and a states man He was ambitious The eulogist of Caesar called it a griev ous fault and grievously has William Goebel answered it But there are kinds and degrees of amp bition He wished to do the State some service He thought the toeT fenthe interest of the 2reat body of the people against the growing aggressions of the char tered companies It cost him his life He has paid the debt He is gone But being a student sustained by the rectitude of his convictions along with the knowledge of his researches he set himselfagainst the aggressions ot the chartered companies like a statesman not like an empirist He did not seek whimsically or corruptly to oppose tkem but rather to moderate their excess to restrain them with in the bounds of their chartered rights To accomplish a task so needful and difficult required not merely legal learning and acumen but personal courage of the first order because in the capitals of all our States there are lobbies which when the artifices of corruption fail know how to handy the appliances of intimidation in the older States the machinery is blackmail in the newer the menace of personal dan ger Mr Goebel feared none of these He went his way disdain ing them He dd his work in their despite Because of this he became a leader and the only lead er in Kentucky whom corruption and corruptionist seriously feared They could not buy him and they could not bully him They had to cause him to be killed and like the blowing up of the Maine in Havana arbor his death will b e the signal for such just retribution to them as came ito Spain It throws a flashlight upon the whole subject of the relation of the public corporations to the people It is a signal to honest and patriotic men of all parties to unite against the growing danger of monopoly If William Goebel had survived then tragical times nothing could have stood in the way of his going to the head of the peoples column for physical and moral emancipa tion from the brute power ofmoney His death unites the Democrats of the United States All ofus from Main to Texas from New York to California will dip our hankerchiefs in his blood sworn to fight the fight out on that line ifit takes the whole of the coming century That is all that we can do for him now but standing over the grave of this brave and pure young spiritmaligned beyond recall hounded to that grave by men who knew better this we can pledge ourselves to do The grief of Goebels taking off is domestic The issue is national William Goebel was not a iiil to attract the public He was not a man to convulse an audience or to set the table in a roar But his brothers and sisters loved him and he was so good a son that after his mothers death he kept her mem bership of her church alive and paid for her pew as if she herself had still been living He had the mis fortune to be horn of poor Geiuian parentage Before he was five and twenty he was the law partner of the late Gov Stephenson the very Ultima Thule of the patricianism of Virgina and Kentucky who dying left him his great estate to manage without a bond and later the law partner oi John G Carlisl- who did little credit to himself and his real friends in Kentucky when during the late campaign he permitted himself to be quote even seemingly against Mr Goebel for Mr Carlisle knows and so dot the Editor of the Courier Journal Mr Carlisles steadfast friend tha in 1896 Mr Goebel did Mr Carlisl- no wrong whatever The killing of Mr Sanford by Mr Goebel is the pivotal point up on which Mr Goebels character has been arraigned It was a street duel Mr Sanford was a dead shot But when the bullets passed Goe bels bullet hit and Sanfords bullet missed It was so clear a case of selfdefense that in a city tfhere Sanford had ten devoted friends to Goehels one nobody seriously thought of indicting Goebel In the convention that nominated Mr Goebel for Governor the Louis yule and Nashville Railroadwas the main factor After a week of battle day and night Mr Goebel beat the combination of brute force and money and won the nomina tion doing nothing to hrCoin petitorswhatever he did to them that they were not ready to do to him Every man woman and child in Kentucky knows this to be the truth COMMENTS Detroit Tribune Rep A great many excuses have be m made for the political crime that Gov Taylor has committed in Kentucky but no partisan has yet been able to justify it It may be said that Mr Goebel was trying t obtain the Governorship by fraud and that a blindly partisan Legis lature was assisting him in the per petration of this outrage but what ever Mr Goebel did was done within the sanction of the law A COLD

several long sieges with the grip At first I did not know that Peruna was a remedy for this disease When I heard that la grippe was epidemic catarrh I tried Peruna for la grippe and found it to be
