Georgetown, Ky., July 27.—Sergt. F.
Wharton Golden, the prosecution's star
witness, was placed in the box to-day in
the trial of Caleb Powers, charged with
complicity in the assassination of Gov.
Unless pres.nt plans are changed the
state will rest its case to-morrow at the
conclusion of Golden’s testimony. His
statements to-day did not vary materially
lrom those made by him at the examining
trial of Powers in Frankfort.
W. Hampton, a Republican member of
the L gislature from Power’s home coun
ty, preceded Golden on the stand. He
swore that Gov. Taylor wanted the Re
publican members to start a fight in the
House and assured him that he, as Gov
ernor, would back them up.
Golden started out by telling that he was
a guard at the Frankfort penitentiary un
der the Republican administration from
1896 to 1898 and was an applicant for as
sistant adjutant general under Gov. Tay
lor. Caleb Powers came to him in Jan
uary and asked him to go to the moun
tains and get a crowd of mountan feud
ists to bring to Frankfort. Powers ac
companied witness part of the way on the
At Barbourville. Golden saw Powers and
Charles Finley. Finley said:
"We will go down there and petition the
Legislature and if they don’t drop that
thing we will kill them.”
Powers, who was present, spoke approv
ingly. Powers and witness went to Scott
Green of Knox county and to ask him to
bring some men for the Frankfort trip.
Green could not go and said:
"If 1 were to go I would kill Goebel and
end this business.”
Gave Voutsey the Key*.
On the day before the shooting witness
saw John Powers give Youtsey the keys
to the Secretary of State’s office and later
Powers told him they had procured two
negroes. Mason Hockersmith and "Tallow
Dick" Combs to kill Goebel. Witness told
Powers this must not be done, os it would
ruin the party. After this Youtsey came
to Powers again and said something about
the key. Powers gave him another key.
On the morniqg of the assassination,
witness, Caleb and John Powers and Wal

FIGHT WITH MAYO INDIANS.
Government Troops llmlly Routed
nod Lost Heavily.
New Orleans. July 27.—News has reach
ed this city of a desperate battle between
the Mexican troops and the Yucatan In
dians, in which the government troops
were badly routed and lost heavily.
This Is the engagement which has been
awaited with the greatest anxiety In
Mexico City. The Mexicans have been
chasing the Mayo Indians in Yucatan for
several months, but could never get them
into a straight fight. It had been a guer
illa warfare up to the present time, when
the meeting of the two armies took place
at a point about fifteen miles
out of San Luis, the capital of
the Indian tribe. Details of
th' battle have not yet reached this port
as news from Yucatan must come via Be
lize, British Honduras.
Gen. Bravo commanded the Mexican
troops and it is said that he had 3,000 men.
The Mayo Indians numbered 6,000 warriors

Ollphant's river and from the high ground

and the enemy retiring in great disorder.
The main road north was blocked for sev

enemy’s rear was then seven miles north.
The mounted force were still west of the
river. Night was closing in; the rain was
falling in torrents, and so it was ompossi
ble to follow. The night was terrible. In
addition to the rain a strong east wind
made the bivouac most uncomfortable.
One officer, I regret to say, died of expos

and oxen was great. The men made light
of hardships and were in famous spirits
when I saw them yesterday.

CANDLER ..TALKS ON CHINA.

Atlanta, July 27.—"1f the President in

The Governor has maintained ail along
that it was the duty of the United
States to send 100,000 men to Taku at once.
He is opposed to militarism, but in a sit
uation of this kind he believes the Amer
ican citizen abroad should be protected,
and that the only way to gain that pro
tection is through an armed force.
"The foreign offices of Europe,” said the
Governor, "have not accepted the dispatch
from Conger obtained through Minister
Wu with as much readiness as has Wash
ington. The President evidently believes
implicity everything the representative of
China says. I do not mean to say for a
moment that I disbelieve the statements
of Minister Wu—far from It. I accord to
him a disposition much higher than per
sons I have heard express themselves, but
he should not expect us to put implicit
faith in the authenticity of a telegram
which was without date and which, to ail
appearances, might have been written in
the first as well as the last of July.
“While this doubt and uncertainty ex
ists. is to my mind, the time to strike,
to find out the real facts and ascertain
whether we have been deceived or not.
I believe 100,000 min should be sent, not
for the purpose of aggrandizement or to
take pert in a partition which the Pow
ers would like to make, hut solely to pro
tect the Americans in China, and to give
the Chinese to understand, if they are ca
pable of grasping the fact, that the Amer
ican citizen and his flag must be respect
ed. One hundred thousand men will be
necessary for this task, but its accom
plishment will command respect every
where, and the effect will be a wholesome
one on our own country.”
