examination, denied that he told Wharton
Golden he had no doubt that "Tallow
Dick" Combs fired the shot that killed
Goebel. He denied that he said Combs
came into the adjutant general's office
after the shooting. He repeated that
Combs and Hockersmith were in the office
at the time and that neither of them could
have done the shooting. The witness also
said he had seen Golden a day or two
ago and denounced him as a liar.
As Prewitt left the stand, Golden was
recalled and the men met fact to face, the
speclators watering them closely to see
how they greeted each other. They spoke
cordially and then Golden took the stand

statements with which Prewitt charged
him He repeated what he claimed Prewitt
told him in regard to "Tallow Dick”
Combs in connection with the shooting.
Cross-examination of James Sparks,
, county attorney in Laurel county, opened
the afternoon session. Counsel for the
prosecution asked him if he had not said
in the presence of a number of people in
London that Goebel was to be snot and
had even designated the day; also that
Taylor had made out the pardons with the
exception of inserting the names. He de
nied making such statements.
An Engineer on the Stand.
E. B. Coleman of New Albany, Ind., a
civil engineer, said he had worked for
many leading pailroads of he country. He
made a survey of the Capitol grounds in
JTankfort and had made a chart, which he
presented. He explained various dis
tances in Jhe grounds and stated that a
shot fired from the sill of the window of
the Secretary of State’s office to the hole
in the hackberry tree wuold drop 1 3-16
inches per foot in its pasasge. He un
derstood that the bullet in passing through
Goebel’s body dropped 1 7-16 inches and
at this rate it would have dropped
after leaving the body so as to strike
the basin of the fountain instead of She
tree. A bullet fired from the sill of the
secretary of state’s office which dropped
1 7-16 inches to the foot would never
have reached the spot where Goebel tvas
supposed to be standing. He stated fur
ther that a line drawn through Goebel's
body from the point of exit to the point
ot entrance and continued to the execu
tive building in a straight line would have
struck it 8% feet above the sill of the
window referred to.

“Throughout the disturbances recently

the mystery which has surrounded the

One of the most distressing features of
the present situation in Pekin is the ap
parent inability of the international pow
ers to insure the absolute safety of the
legations pending the arrival of the re
lief column from Tieti Tsin. Apprehen
sions are felt for the safety of the im
prisoned ministers in the present temper
of the Chinese people.
Minister* In Great Peril.
There Is no longer any attempt to con
ceal the fact that the imperial forces in
China are banded together with the Box
ers to exterminate the "Foreign Devils.”
It also been clearly demonstrate.!
that the Chinese government is resisting
the advance movement of the international
forces with all its power, coupled with
implication that further hostile demon
strations on the part of the allies may
furnish a pretext for the massacre of the
ministers and thrir associates. It is con
ceded that the latter are in deadly peril
and their safety at Pekin cannot be assur
ed. At the same time. Minister Conger has
stated that it means certain death to leave
there. L'nder these conditions the Chinese
seem to hold the key to the situation so
far as the safety of the legations is con

observed to prevent disaster to the minis
At the state and war departments the
statement is officially made that is
no intention of calling a halt in the move

and there is no likelihood of such a step
being taken, unless it should prove the

A Sign of Hope.
Conservative officials derive some hope
from the fact that Minister Conger's dis
patch came through in cipher and may be
regarded as an indication that the Chinese
government is preparing a way for open
communication between the ministers and
their respective governments. If the prom
ises contained in the edict are made good

mass mte itig was held at Tomlinson
Hall, which was p:eslded ever by Mayor
Carter H. Harr.son of Chicago, and ad
dressed by Mr. Biyan ard lien Webster
Davis. The meeting was rot called to
order until 8:30 o'clock, but the ball, which
is a large one, was filled an hour before
that time. Mr. Bryan was received with
vociferous applause as he entered.
In opening the meeting Mayor Harrison
made a brief speech congratulating the
Democracy upon the "promise, yes the
assurance, of success of our ticket at the
polls In November.” He said the people
had got "tried of Mark Hanna and his
band of freebooters," and were turning to
the Democratic parly for relief.
Mr. Harrison abx> referred In condemna
tory terms to the Operation of trust* as
the great and growing evil of Ihe day and
threatening the very existence of our In
stitutions. He denounced "imperialism
■and militarism" as repugnant to all who
believe in a Republican form of govern
In conclusion he said he was the seventh
son of a seventh daughter, anil that ho
prophrside the election of Mr. Bryan. He
then introduced Mr. Bryan, whoso speech
was important because it outlined his
ideas of the advantages t njoyed by the
Democrats In the present campaign over
those of 1896.
Mr. Ilrymt Make* a Speecli,
"Mr. Chairman, Ladles and Gentlemen;
I am obliged to Mayor Harrison for his
kind prophecy. He is the president of a
Democratic club in Chicago that has cele
brated Jackson’s birthday during each
year since 1896. I have been present at
each meeting of he club, and he, as presl
ldent of the club, has nominated me for
President on four successive occasions. He
has got so into the habit that If you do not
elect me this time you are going to em
barrass Mayor Harrison very greatly.
(Laughter.) But speaking of mayors I
want to say that wc are In a much better
position this year than wc were In 1891.
; because of the fact that we have, control
of the city governments of many, tf not
most of the large cities of this country.
Mayor Harrison presides In the city sec
ond In s;z, in the United Slates. I had a
suspicion hat there were some repeaters in
Chicago In 1896. Indeed. I suspected that
some of the Republicans up (here were
following the idea expressed by a gentle
man after Ihe election. He was told there
was some repeating. He said;
“ ’Well. I suppose it was twice as hon
est to vote twice for honest money ns to
vote once for it.’
Conlrot of Many Cltlc*.
1 We have control of Ihe government of
the largest city in Indiana. ,1 am glad
that we have much In this campaign, for
while we do not wat t any unlawful votes
cast on our side, we are glad to be in
position to prevent their being cast on
the other side. We have control of the
city governments of New York City and
Buffalo, two of the larg at cities of the
s ate cf New York. We lave control of
the city government of Jersey City; we
have Baltimore; we have Cleveland and
n Toledo, although the Mayor does not
call himself a Democrat I know he won’t
et ary Republican cheat in that city.
(Laughter.) We hove control of lamis
vilie, Ky., we have control cf Kansas
City; we hove control of Denver and
we have control of San Francisco. It is
a great advantage to have control of the
machinery in these great cities. We have
an advantage In this campaign—a wonder
ful adv.tnage—over the campaign of IRWi.
because then the papers were full of an
nouncements of Democrats who were leav
ing the party and now it requires an ex
pert mathematician to stand at Ihe door
and count them as they come back.
(Laughter and applause.)
Gold Democrat* Come Ruck.
"We have with us this year all we had
in 1896; we have with us a large majority
of the Gold Democrats who were not in
our favor in 1896. I knew they would
come back because I knew tfiat most of
them who went away went because they
did not recognize ihe magnitude of the
struggle In which we arc engaged, ihe I*>-
ginning of the struggle between Democracy
and plutocracy. I believe that a great ma
jority of them would come back, and I
insisted that when they got ready to
come back I wanted: them to know where

then, now know that tf you want to ex

party to meet ti on the trust question.
