Northern Press on the Murderof Goebel JHl hitJ n5Iti1handed Lawlessness kepubiican Papers on Caleb Power Trial the verdict of the jury in the trial of Caleb Powers exsecretary- of state of Kentucky which finds him guilty of complicity in the murder of William Goebel and fixes his punishment at imprisonment for life will surprise no one who has carefully followed the evidence and is at all familiar with the polit ical conditions in that state growing out of the contest over thegov errorship It cannot be denied that the state produced a formidable array of evi dence tending to prove that the as sassination of Goebel was not the work of a reckless daredevil mountaineer who did the dastardly job upon his own responsibility but that it was the result of a carefully planedconspiracy There is no longer any doubt among fairmind ed Republicans as well as Democrats that the Goebel murder was delib erately Planiiedand the assassin was the agent of a conspiracy which had conceived that some advantage was to be derived from the removal of the Democratic claimant to the governorshipThe the state in the case of Powers was to establish his con nection with or responsiblity for the conspiracy which is known to have existed The state claims to have done this upon the testimony of severalwitnesses who related conversations in which Powers is alleged to have stated that Goebel had to be killed The most cred ible testimony of this character was given by Finley Anderson a Republican and a warm personal friend of Powers a resident of Barbour villa the home of the defendant who detailed a conversation in which Powers told him that Goe belwould not live to take his seat and that if necessary he would kill him himself Add to such testimony as this the admission of Powers that he organ ized the crowd of 1200 armed mountaineers which came to Frank fort on January 15 also the proof that he gave Henry E Youtseythe key to his office in the state building and that the shot which killed Goebel was fired from that office and it is difficnlt to see how the urYunder the instructions of Judge Gantri could bring in any other verdict than that of gilty ofClac tessory before the tart to the murder The trial of Youtsey who was seen running down the stairway from the senetary of states office immediately after the shot was fired t and to whom Powers gave the Key to the office promises more import ant revelations than were disclosed iu the trial just ended and if conducted with the same vigor by the state should clear up the conspiracy that has blackened the name of Kentucky ChicagoTimes

requires 100 per cexnt more corn or wheat to buy a copper kettle than in 1896 It requires twice as much corn to buy a coil of rope as in 1896 1896Itshovel than in 1899 x Aset of common wheels that

from 40 to loo per cent And all these things have been done by the trusts A trust robs you waking or sleeping eating or drinking working or playing living or dying and the coffin trust gets you in the end Extravagant Waste of Public Money To Perpetuate tIle Amiistration Some idea of the extra vagant waste of the publics money in an effort to reward the political heeler may be obtained by a study of the figures given below These offices were created by the Republican ma jority in the first session of the present Congress and the patronage list thus handed over to the party managers for effective use to per petuate the present Administration was not the least of the services which that body rendered the party 5069totalTotal amount of annual salary attached 4537673 77 New offices created not

expended in special commis DepartIWHERE IS TAYLOR NOW There remains but one course open to him Taylor and that is I to return as soon as he can walk bravely and boldly into court and meet the indict ent like a man Any other course would be rank injustice not only to himself but to those of his friends who have been accused of so foul a crime I do not know whether the Indictment has been found against Mr Taylor but T have n o doubt if it is that he will promptly surrender himself into the hands of the law and believe that any intimation to the contrary does hint an injust ice =ExGov Bradley

justice WvS Tayidry April 7 TAYLOR A DESPOT Taylors course from the moment of his inauguration has been sub versive of the fundamental principles ot democratic government All these circumstances taken to ether place Gov Taylors case in the worse possible light A than fcho after his installation as gover nor is capable ofsuch lawless arbitrary and generally unprincipled conduct is manifestly not to be credited with honest and lawabiding methods in the campaign which eventuated in his being declared governor Whether Taylor or Goebel is the rightful governor of Kentucky now becomes a secondary issue The main question is the immediate ne cessity that the extraordinary despotism set up by Taylor and backed with bayonets and bullets shall pulled down and replaced with the Democratic form of government to which Kentucky has the same tit- fasevery e other state in the j union Better a hundred years of slippery thafn one hour of Taylors roughshod autocracy = pittsburg Leader Re = publican

unsettled and threatening but it did not stop c1 crowd of 2000 from coming from all sections of Rockcastle county and large delegations from Pulaski and Jackson to hear John W Yerkes The most enthusiastic Republ- iCns withoplaced the crowd at 700 The carriage bearing Mr Yerkes was driven to the residence of Dr Williams wherewith Judge J W Alcorn Judge T Z Morrow and Judge W L Brown he sat down to a sumptuous din ner served in true Kentucky style Where did that carriage come feom Who drove it Who sa w it Ask the people if that is so The Court room had been beau tifully decorated for the

was built They ex isted only in the mind of the writer Di Williams has a wide acquaint ance in the district and his per sonal popularity will be of great help to the ticket The facts are that the

before any other warrants are drawn The payment ot this will make it impossible to pay you the 40 per cent due your teachers on the i3th only 20 per cent can be paid You will please explain to your

that she could take a bottle of the remedy and after giving it a fair triaLif she did not find it worth the money to bring back the bottle and I would refund the price paid In the ladyJin need of a cough medicine and advised her to buy a bottle of Chamberlains Cough Remedy I consider that a very good recommendation for the remedy The remedy owes its great popularity and extensive sale in a large
