he would Sap ply the links l1 to closeW connect caleblPowers and othe with the assassination of Gov Goebel So strong was his confession or tes = timony that remainsIin the mind of any reasonable man that at least Powers and Culton will be held over to the rand jury While yoS Taylor Tallow Dick Combs Mason Hockersmith and other persons were implicated so closely as to leave little room for doubt that further inquiry will be made into their cases by the grand jury WHAT TAYLOR SAID Golden said that Taylor said to a inoi main man In the presence of Youpeople must act first and then I will call out the militia quick enough This was on the morning before Gov Gov Goebel was shot Golden further said that Tay lor was associated with Charles Finley Caleb Powers John L Powers and himself in directing the movements of the regular mountain fuedists as Golden de scribed the character of mountain men whom Caleb Powers ordeied himself and other friends to bring- to Frankfort jIGolden

self to send back to the mountains all the men except ten or fifteen picked men from earch couty These were to remam and accomp- li xh erequired work it Tallow Dick Combs was seers by Golden on a certain corner in Frankfort every morning for a week before Gov Goebel was shot He told Golden that hfe wanted to become familiar with his appearance and finally just before the assassination he drew a long 32caliber pistol that slipt a tin chester cartridge and holding it up said G dhim I know him now so wqli that I can hit hint with this as far as I can see lihnM I Just before the assassination

arouses a passion for deadly weapons and begets the spirit of firing from ambushI Judge Emett Field las rendered his final opinion in the Governor ship contest case in which he holds that W S Taylor has no right or title to the office of Governor or lo the possessionor use thereof and declares linn a usurper The The same is adjudgedagainst John Marshall the Lieutenant Gov ernor The Court then adjudged that J C W Beckham is the only duly elected and legal qualified Lieutenant Governor ll1das such is entitled to the full possession o the office of Governor An ap peal was asked y the Republicans and it was grantedpapers are already prepared and it will in all probability be taKen up to day by the Court of appeals The witness Wharton Golden testifies underoath that he heard W S Taylor say on the morning before Gov Goebel was shot My God you fellows must act first and then I will call out the militia The sworn scatement made by on of the original clan is corroborate by two very strong physical facts i7 Goebel was killed and before you could drop your hat the mili tia was not only called but was there completely surrounding the executive building to protect the assassins therein John Powers had declared that Goebel would be killed that morning and Caleb Powers had even made threats Against the Democratic Secretary of State Breck Hill The circumstances surrounding the killing the contest of Taylor in not permitting the executive building to be searched the very quick appearance of the militia his threatening and encouraging declaration to Caleb Powers forces upon us the belief that Mr Baylor was oneof the alders and betterinthe death of William Goebel We have always felt and feel now with all k due respect to our brotHer jRepubf fjc z Beans that when the truth is known and murder is Tertian to out that it would he found that C Charley Finley and Caleb Powers whilenot firing the shot yet they caused and are directly responsible r GoeIbelman to suffer but as

not indorse such action if you be one whit above the beast of the forest Let these men have a fait and impartial trial Let every doubt turn in their favor as the law directs and then if they be found guilty as the test fimouy shows th yare then punish them by demanding ot them 0vqat they so ruthlessly took from Goe belhuman life 9n JKijilnOn last Tuesday at Washington City the President and Cabinet fo the first tine and said to be the last time took up the complicated situation in ECeutuqky The de cision is as follows The President and Attorney General both gave their opinions against any action which would in volve the Federal Government even in the most indirect way in the struggle now on in Kentucky They stated that Kentucky is a sovereign state whose laws are executed by regularly chosen officials The state laws must take their course and be enforced as must be done everywhere The Attorney General has been unable to find th slightest excuse for any direct or indirect interference in the contest The question of United States arms being in possession of the militrry companies recognizing both gov ernments does not concern the ad0 ministration here The arms of the War Department are loaned to tbeState ot Kentucky Yy hick is responsible for them The Secre tary of War cannot order arms in possession of companies recognizing Beckham to be taken away It is pioposed literally that the thfe i Griggs farther states Them is not a pretext for any in- tel Ference by the government with affairs in Kentucky Kentucky is a sovereign state and her law are supreme upon matters within her domain Fovirz IelnWi hoo Bail CultoJl Cl1J1JessesJ IJavisd IJiven Bail Arrtth Judge Moore held Powers to April term of Court withont bail John Davis was granted bailof 5000 which be

confession public the attorneys of the prose cution are saying nothing not even admitting that a f confession was made The attorneys for Culton are exercising the same caution His attorneys offered his confession several days ago upon certain term- one of which was thatwhen the case was called he was to be put on the stand as a with ess for the Commonwealth This was rejected and Culton upon
