The case against Caleb Powers was given to the jury at i oclock p m Saturday Only fiitythree minutes were consumed in the jury room before they brought in a verdict of guilty against Powers one of the accused accessories to the murder of William Goebel Two ballots were taken the first ballot stood eleven for life im prisonment and one for hanging the second ballot all agreed on a life sentence Powers will try for a new hearing The case against Henry E Youtsey charged with the murder of William Goebel was called Monday but continued until Thursday on account of the ill ness of the defendant The attor nerys for the defense asked that the case be continued until the October term of the count on the grounds that Taylor and Finley were two very important witnesses and that they would be there to testify for Youtsey at that time but Judge Cautrill immediately overruled the motion saying There was no assurance that tine two men would be here at time Youtsey will in all probability be the last ol the assassins to be tried at this terin of the court Talks with jurors after they left the courthouse at Georgetown de veloped the fact that the 53 minutes consumed the jury room was taken up mostly with reading aloud the instructions and waiting for Judge Cantrill to return When the jurymen entered their room Juror Stone the oldest wait on the panel was elected foreman Juror Porter the only Republican on the jury was the first to speak He said Gentlemen I am- a Republican and I have said that I did not believed Goebels murder was the result of a conspiracy I did not think Caleb Povers could be guilty but I have heard the evi dence and i am convinced he is Others also made talks and it is said one ot the men on the jury intimated that he thought the death penalty ought to be inflicted However when a ballot was taken all 2 of the jurors voted for life imprisonment The jury which sat in the case was composed of eight Democrats three antiGoebel Democrats and one Republican

Shelby For Governoriof Gov J C W Beckham of Nelson AT last the Powers case has been decided and one of the most noted cases in the history of the State is completed It has proved beyond a doubt to all fair minded men be they Jew or Gentile that Culton and Golden told the truth and that one of the blackest conspira des that ever polluted the fair name of any State has been un earthed and that the accomplices in the murder of Gov Goebel are many From the tvidence inlio duced accessories before the fact and accessories after the fact abide in almost every nook and corner of this grand old Common wealth and especially in the Mountain district Long have the people of the Mountain part of Kentucky borne the name or being a blood thirsty set and more clear ly has the exposure of this diabol = al plot proved the truth of state I netit Born and reared in these mountains we lcve so dearly we are indeed made to feel sad to know that the finger of scorn will be pointed at us let us turn any way we will Ye rsand years shall have come and gone genera tion after generation shall have panedaway many of those who are living today will be known no more forever yet the stain of the murder of our lamented Governor will yet remain to haunt those who claim the Mountain part of Ken lucky as home Pb seems that we have an Indi ana right at home in the shape of Harlan jjconnty While Taylor tFinley and others crossed the river to seek protection under the wing of Gov Mount the other boys including John Powers who is practicing la v corresponding fur newspapers etc are under the ofallprotecting power of Harlansqt 7rave Governor We suggest that when a Democratic GovernorT h prindiana is elected this fall that Taylor e al remove their headquarter z tr Harlnu court house FOR sometime the subject of good roads has Seen abS discussed through the columns of the SIGNAL by Buck Varnon and others and of course we are row and have been all the times in full sympathy with everything they have said on tulle mhjctWe are ac a loss to see how even the most sceptical couldnow have any doubts as to the vj5plpin of building pikes in ourcounty So far as we are iu i i dividuallv concerned we dont travel the roads a great deal but we know there are a thousand ways in which we wouldall be benefited thereby As Ole of our correspondents said its too plain a proposition to call for argument but the thing to do is keep it be fore the people not let them rest till they get to business and get at it in earnest Ve have waded mud and water up to our knees long enough and we are just as much entitled to some of the com forts of life as any other people if we have the energy to strive for them COL T C CAMPBELL of the prosecution in the Powers case said The verdict proves that politics and murder may be re garded as divorced in Kentucky Let us all hope that what he said may be true It is a fact that no honest man will deny that in some parts of the State juries are se lected on accotint of their political views and in many instances they decide the case the way their po litical prejudices tell them to de cide it One cause ofso much murder in our State is on account of politics entering so largely into the trials of the accused No one can blame the lawyers for taking advantage of such a state ofaffairs in fact they have it to do in order to prove true true to their clients We are afraid Col Campbells words wont hold good in alt parts of the State as they did at George town We know whereof we speak in this matter and it is a shame to the once fair name of our State TILE hottest campaign ever waged in Kentucky will open up in a few days On one side will be Mark Hanna with his boodle backed by the corporations of the whole United States and Taylor ism while on the other side will be the great common people Who are going to be victorious Are the people of this proud old com monwealth to sell their birthrights for a mess of pottage No they will never do it and when tire smoke shall have rolled away next November old Kentucky will show up with a Democratic majority of twenty thousand Wej have a good safe Democratic majority beside what Republicans are going to come over and help us and they are not a few They cant nor wont stand imperialism by McKinley and Hanna in the United States nor government by assassination in Kentucky THK Powers have fought their way to Pekin though China is at peace with the world This is a eculiar state of affairs and if this is peace wont the fur fly itwar should be declared The Japs seem to be doing the principal part pro1iIing
