Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 2.—Rev. John
Stamper, brother-in-law of Wharton Gold
en. was recalled to-day in the trial or j
Caleb Powers, charged with complicity in
the Goebel shooting.
Col. Parks of the prosecution questioned j
him as to the part he took in getting Re
publicans from Scott county to go to the
state capital on Jan. 25. He answered that |
h* secured quite a number.*
On redirect examination Stamper said
his conversations with Golden regarding
the money he (Golden) was to receive for
convictions were confidential, but that he j
nude them public because a man’s life I
was in jeopardy.
“The witness should not make stump
speeches in the court house,” said Judge
Stamper declared he had never been au- j
thorized by anyone to offer money to Gol
den to leave the state before the trial. His
memory had been refreshed since adjourn- •
rv nt of court yesterday and he desired i
to correct the statement made then that
hi? offer of $5,000 to Golden was after the
talking with Caleb Powers, the defend
ant. He said he had the conversation with
Golden before talking to Powers.
The defense called R. L. McClure of
Lexington, a newspaper man. Attorney i
Owens asked him if witness Golden had
rot said to him that Youtsey was a fool 1
for talking too much and would not get a
cent, but that he (Golden) had fixed it
before he told his story to the prosecu
tion. The pics cution objected and was
sustained by the court. An exception was
Fsr*t Kentucky Called on.
Col. C. C. Mengal of the First Ken ucky
National Guard, followed. He produced
two telegiams received at Louisville on
the day of the shooting at 2 p. m., con- i
Mining only the words, “All right.” and
signed D. R. Collier, adjutant general.
Also a letter from Collier, explaining that
the words “All right” m*ant for the wit
ness to come to Frankfort and bring a
regiment and Gatling gun. On cross ex
amination the prosecution read this letter
to show that Op’.Her had sent the tele
grams btf re ar.d rot after noon.
Col. Mvngal produced orders signed by
Gcv. Taylor for the movement of the reg
iment to Fiankfor-. He said he could not

18, the date it bore, ar.d not executed un
til the 30th instant. Jn the order. Taylor
directed him to obey all orders and sisna’s
gi\en him by Adjutant General Col i*r.
Stephen G. Sharpe of Lexington, chair
man of the mountaineers’ meeting held
on the steps of the capitol Jan. 25, produc
ed the minutes and resolutions of that
meeting. Before the jury was brought in
for the afternoon session, Attorney
Brown of the defense, presented the copy
of the resolutions, adopted at the meeting
of the mountain men, and asked that the
paper be read to the Jury. Passionate
speeches for and against the admission of
the papers nnd evidence were made by
Attorneys Brown and Williams. When
they hod ceased the judge said:
“The paper offered as evidence is
clearly incompetent. You might as well
read to the Jury Pope’s ‘Essay on Man.’ ”
The jury was then brought in and
Sharpe again placed on the stand. Wit
ness said he told Gov. Taylor and Gen.
Collier before Jan. 30 that he had been
warned by a Democratic friend to stay
eway from Frankfort as the parties push
ing the gubernatorial contest had 2,000
rifles there and were ready to use them.
Witness was in Gov. Taylor’s office in
five minutes after the shooting. Taylor
asked him to take charge and prepare to
defend the building. He did so. giving
orders not to permit the arrest of anyone
in the Capitol grounds.
Would Do It Again.
In response to a question on cross-ex
amination Sharpe stated he had in sub

ready to take his gun and either lead oi

Frank C. Carpenter was the last wit
ness of the day. He was In Frankfort
Jan. 7. and was called by the defense to

had heard made against occupants of the
executive building. While he was being
cross-examined court adjourned.

Chinaman** Account of the Situation

from Victoria, B. C. f says:
A letter received by a local Chinaman

to bo plunder and ha*red of foreigners.
The gates of Pekin were consequently
opened day and night to permit these re
inforcements to enter the city. Those in
the city had attacked the foreign lega

repulsed every time, although they man

“Not counting the 2,000 to 3.000 converts
who have been massacred by the Boxers
inside Pekin, it was estimated when I
left that over 4,000 peaceable citizens had
also been slain in the melee. The streets
ran with blood; it was awful. The Tar
tar and Forbidden cities were filled to
overflowing with Boxers and Manehu
troops, which caused a panic among the
princes, dukes, nobles and members of
the imperial clan, and other banners, who
were afraid that they also w’ould be
plundered as soon as the Boxers got be

managed to clear both cities of their dan

placed strong guards of banner men to

Dublin, Ga., Aug. I—The twenty-fourth
annual session of the Georgia State Hor
ticultural Society was called to order in
this city this morning by Dr. P. J. Berek
mans, the President. On behalf of the
mayor of the city, who was unable to be
present, C. A. Weddlngton delivered an
address of welcome, followed by Hon. L.
Q. Stubbs, on behalf of the people gen
erally. These addresses were responded
to on behalf of the society by Prof. H.
E. Stockbridge, director of the Florida
The annual address of President Berck
ma-ns was very interesting, and he took
occasion to scare some of the fruit grow
ers for shipping faulty peaches this year.
If this is kept up, he said, the prestige
Georgia fruit now has in the markets
will be destroyed. He thinks that there
should boa fruit inspector in Georgia.
Following the address of President
Berckmans. Prof. W. M. Scolt, state
entomologist, read a report upon the San
Jose scale work of the state. Prof. Scott
traced the scale as it moved in different
localities until it had overspread the en
tire state. The scale is now most numer
ous along the railroad from Waycross to
Bainbrldge and Albany, from Tlfton to
Valdosta, Fitzgerald and Oordele, from
Thomasvllie to Albany, Smithvllle to Fort
Gaines, Americas to Columbus, Cordele to
Savannah and from Miicoti to Dublin.
This gives the scale a wide range and
renders its eradication doubtful. In re
gard to treatment, Prof. Scott said until
further experiments develop something
more satisfactory. we will con
tinue to use kerosene in me
chanical mixtures with water as
soon the fruit crop Is gath
ered. Infected trees should be sprayed
with 10 per cent, kerosene in mechanical
mixture with water. Particular care
should be taken in ihe use of kerosene as
a summer wash as there is always more
or less danger of injury to the trees
sprayed. The summer treatment must be
followed in the fall as soon as the. foliage
Is shed by an application of 20 per cent,
kerosene. To obtain good results every
portion of the infeted tree must be wet
from the ground to the tips of the twigs,
and gr<at care should be exercised to pro
vutt the kerosene frem running down the
trunk of the tree. Bright days should be
selected for the work, and spraying should
continue late In the even ng.

A NEGRO'S BOLD DEED.
Went In White Woman’s Boom but
Hint When She Screamed.
Lyons, Ga., Aug. 2.—This morning about
3 o'clock the room of Mrs. Peter Clifton
was entered by a negro. He came In
through a window. When Mts. Clifton
discovered that someone was In the room
she thought that it was one of the chil
dren, who, she says, very often get up
and dome to her bed in the night. She
asked several times who It was, and the
negro answered each time In a whisper.
When she reached out her hand and put
it on his head and discovered that It was
a negro, she became very much fright
ened and called for Mr. Clifton, who was
sleeping on the back piazza. The negro
then Jumped out of the window and ran.
She was able to see, as he went through
the window, that he was in ilia shirt
sleeves and of short stature.
Before entering Mr. Clifton’s house he
made an attempt to get In Mr. Carl Rog
ers' house. Mr Rogers' mother and two
sisters were alone in the house, Mr. Rog
ers being a way. The noise that he made
at the blinds In trying to unfasten them
awoke the ladle* and they got up, lit a
lamp and sat up the rest of the night.

From the point of view of artistic and

nearly every city possesses, fairiy dot the
surface of the country. Their purpose ap

agents of "feng *hut" (literally "wind

Those very curious tower* are of great
antiquity, Chinese records authenticating
their origin at least ns far back us the
early part of the Christian era. In size
they vary from the little ones, which are
nothing more than roadside shrines, to
what once the most beautiful and
largest—the celebrated porcelain pagoda
of Nanking, destroyed in the Talping re
bellion. The extraordinary structure had
a height of 261 feet, wa built of masonry,
and covered with glazed tiles of many
colcrr. and was a monument of native
skill In erection as well as to artistic
sense In design. Unfortunately, most of
the largest pagoda* are being allowed to
ert mhlo to decay, although some are
tended and give hope of standing for othc
generations to admire. The prominent

are usually octagonal In plan, with
straight but tapering sides, and always
are composed of an odd number of stroies.

N, J. Men Have Been Threatened.
New York, Aug. 2.—Seevral hundred an
archists held a meeting In Rartholdi Hall
at Paterson, N. J.. to-night, for the pur
pose of dismissing the situation In Italy.
There were many Frenchmen, a number
of Spaniards and a few Austrians In
the assemblage, which conalrlel for the
most port of Italians.
Pasqualle Frank Presided. At the open
ing he denounced the newspapets In gen
eral and claimed that they were misrepre
senting the anarchists.
Pedro Keteve, the Spanish leader and
editor of a Paterson anarchist publication,
was the principal speaker. He discussed
the situation In Italy from his own stand
point, claiming that the government was
bad to the core. He said the poor people
of the nation were oppressed and over
buidcned by taxes, and because of file Ist
t r the ror p-ople could not stay In tha
country. He reviewed the work of the
'-'o-lalls s In Italy and claimed that their
propaganda had done no good; their In
tentions might be well, but their methods
were not prodcctive of results.
He said Jlaly’s only hope was In ths
anarchists. They had no secrets, he said,
and took no part In plots. He said they
did not select by lot or otherwise any
person to kill. Hr.scl. he said, had not
been sent to kill the King, he did the
act of his own free will. Bsteve said
that he was not sorry. This was greeted
with liughter and applause.
Resolutions were adopted a* follows:
"We here assembled Intend to state
that Bread's deed was the result of the
present social state of afTalrs, and there
fore we are trying to establish one where
violence would not be possible,
"We deplore as foolish the Idea that
there could have been or existed a plot
In this city (Paterson) and protest against
those who attribute it to and are trying
to make the Italian colony of Paterson
responsible for Hresd’s deed."
