Court Ruled Out Resolution* Adop ted by the Mountaineer*—Sharpe Ready to L ; *e Hi* Gun to Prevent OusMns; of Republican*. 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 Cantrill sharply. 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 taken. £ 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 evpiain why the order was issued on Jan. 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. Mountaineers* Resolution*. 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 stance said to some persons on the Sat urday before the shooting that he was ready to take his gun and either lead oi follow’ to prevent the ousting of the Re publican officeholders. “I am ready to do it now’,” he ex claimed. Frank C. Carpenter was the last wit ness of the day. He was In Frankfort Jan. 7. and was called by the defense to show the state of feeling on the streets of the city immediately after ihe shoot ing of Goebel. He repeated threats he had heard made against occupants of the executive building. While he was being cross-examined court adjourned. COL.

Chinaman** Account of the Situation in Pekin When Mansacres Were in rrogre**. Chicago, Aug. 2.—A special to the Record from Victoria, B. C. f says: A letter received by a local Chinaman by the steamer Glenogle, dated Chi San Fu, the capital of Shan Tung, on July 2, says Cho Ta. a reformer who evtaped from Pekin on June 26, has given the writer the following information from the capital to June 26; There were 100.000 Boxers and Manehu troops in th*i cap la’ when I left, and numbers more were pouring in from all par s of ihe Chi Li, San Tung, Shen Si and Ho Nan. Their main object seemed 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 tions continuously for ten days, but w'ere repulsed every time, although they man aged to set fire to a number of houses adjoining the foreign quarters, thereby leaving the latter considerably exposed. I bol ©ve en? cr two foreign houses hrui already been destroyed when I left the c.ty. No de.ent p?is n could get any where near the place for fear of being called a fortigner by the mob. “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 yond control, and so by diplomacy they managed to clear both cities of their dan gerous friends, closed the gates and placed strong guards of banner men to prevent further Ingress of outsiders. The Tartar City* gates are now* only opened a couple of hours a day to enable residents to purchase things from the other cities. To show how popular the Boxen? are with the Manehu*. in front of the palaces of each prince, duke and no ble. there are Boxer altars, or recruiting pieces. On June 19 Yung Lu. who had always advocated the suppression of the Boxers, having received dispatches from the vice roys nnd governors south of the Yellow river, urging the same step, thought to back up his policy but quoting the provin cial dispatches at the Grand Council that morning. A great clamor at once arose among the other grand councillors, head ed by Prince Tuan and Yang Yu. who de nounced A ling Lu as a traitor and literally overwhelmed him by their numbers. Fi nally. in spite of the endeavors, of the Empress Dowager to restore order Prince Tuan and Yang Yu cried out that they would take all the responsibil ity of the war against foreigenrs. and rushed out of the grand council chamber, all decorum and etiquette being thrown to the winds. The Empress Dowager left the Council Chamber in despair, and has not been heard of since, nor has the Emperor. They are said to be under the restraint of Prince Tuan’s men in the palace. When this was know*n to the eunuchs and pal ace officials they raised the cry, “Up with the To Tsing dynasty and down with the foreigners!” which was taken up by the populace in the Tartar city. An hour af terward began the reign of Prince Tuan and his clique. We fear greatly for the safety of uor beloved Emperor.” HIS OW\ CAMPAIGN MANAGER. Col. Bryan Will Take Chnut, of It to a Large Extent Him.elf. Chicago, Aug. 2.—The Record to-morrow will say;. William J. Bryan in a large measure will be his own campaign manager this year. Directly after the notification cere monies at Indianapolis next week the Democratic candidate for President will return to Chicago, and, with the help of his party's leaders, formulate plans for the campaign. According to the pro gramme as outlined by J. G. Johnson, chairman of the National Executive Com mittee. Adlai E. Stevenson will come back with Mr. Bryan to this city, and the two will have a large share in arranging the lines for the coming political fight. Mr. Johnson was told by Mr. Bryan over the telphone to help in arranging the pro gramme for the campaign. Mr. Johnson said the candidate would probably be here three or four days. Practically the full roster of Democratic leaders will go to Indianapolis for the notification, and they will return here with Mr. Bryan for a session that will determine in its broad lines the way the campaign is to be con ducted. It is eaid at headquarters that Mr. Bryan is not satisfied with the way the campaign has been run thus far. but he feels that he has learned a good deal of politics since he was a candidate before, and he wants to put it to practical uses.

With destruction and murder it will dis pute the victorious march of Christian customs and Christian faith. “And again is heard God’s command. ‘Choose us out men and go out to fight wdth Amalek.’ A hot and sanguinary strug gle has begun. Already a number of our brethren are over there uhder fire. Many more are traveling along hostile coasts. “You have seen them, the thousand? who, to the call of volunteers to the front who will guard the empire, have assem bled themselves to battle with victorious bann rs. We who remain at home are bound by other sacred duties. Woe unto us if we remain slothful and sluggish while *hey are engagrd in their difficult and bloody work, and If. from our place of security, we only curiously look on while they w*restle in battle. “Not only should w r e mobilize battal ions of troops, but w r e should also and shall set in motion an army of trained people to beg and entreat (or our breth ren that they may strike into the wild chacs with sword in hand May they strike fer our most sacred possessions. We would pray that God, the Lord, may make heroes of our men and take those heroes to victory, and then with laurels on their helmets and orders on their breasts. He may lead them home to the land of (heir fathers. “Our fight will not be finished in one day; but let not our hands grow weary or sink until victory is secured. Let our prayers be as a wall of fire around the camp of our brethren. Eternity will re veal the fulfillment of an old promise— ‘Cal! upon me in trouble and I will deliver thee.’ Therefore, pray continuously.” VICEROY WAS NOT WELL.

ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., 100 WILLIAM BT., NEW YORK. HORTICULTURISTS' MEETING. ANNUAL SESSION OF THE STATE SOCIETY AT PI RUN. President Berckninna Warns Prodne era Against Shipping Poor Fruit. Prof. Scott Tells of Experiments to Kill the San Jnee Scale—Prof. tlunintn nre*M Interesting Paper. The Delegates Tendered on Excur sion Down the River. 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 Experiment Station. 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. Following the by l rof Scott, tile mcrrdng session adjourned after the ap pointment of the commute s to inspect and report upon the fruit display. The commi tes will report to-morrow. The fruit dlsp’ay ts fine, though not as many varieties are shown as was oxpect ei. 'i he largest display Is by the Georgia experiment station. The principal paper at the afternoon session was by Prof. A. L. Qiialntance of the Georgia experiment station. This paper was mainly Ihe report on biology for the year, and the main feature of Ihe paper was a report of the result of spray - ing peaeh trees wilh Bordeaux mixture to prevent brown-rot. In many cases, he said, almost the <iire product was re claimed by the use of this mixture. Dif ferent specifs of tries gave different re ttul s. but In nearly every ease from 25 10 73 per cent. of the fruit was found to be saved by the use' of this mixture. Prof Qualntance staled that from test* made by him at the Geor gia experiment station showed lhat for maldehyde gas has been of little effect in preventing the rotting of peaches. Much discussion was occasioned by Prof. Quain tance's paper. The following Is the result of Prof. Quaintanoe's experiment with Bordeaux mixture: Hulsteads' No. 63. made two ap plications, the result was thot per cent of the fruit of an unsprayed tree was rotten. The per cent, of a sprayed tree was 64 per cent. Here tvo sprayings re claimed 44 per cent, of the fruit. Hul steads' No. 64, received three application*; 93 per cent, of unsprayed tree was rotten, while on a sprayed tree only 25 per cent, was bad. In this case three applications reclaimed 68 per cent, of ihe fruit. Chi nese Free, Elberta, Triumph, Lady Itigalfl and many other varieties were experi mented with In like manner and the urn* results obtained. At 4:15 the afternoon session adjourned eo that the members could participate In FINE GRADES OF WHISKIES. WHISKIES. WHISKIES. The R. G.
