PERJURY IN POWERS’ TRIAL
SAID JI'RY WILL FIND PLENTY OP
IT ON BOTH SIDES.
Question Is No* as to Which Side
Has Dealt In Perjury, But Which
Has Furnished the Larger Amount

Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 10.—In the case
of Caleb Fowers, ex-Secretary of State,
charged with being an accessory before
the fact in the Goebel assassination, the
defense reeled its testimony this after
noon. Several witnesses In rebuttal were
introduced by the prosecution.
The jury will be taken to Frankfort
either Monday or Tuesday to view the
scene of the. tragedy.
When it comes to considering the evi
dence the jury will not have to decide the
question of which side has dealt in per
jury, but which side has been burdened
with the larger amount of that product,
as during the past few days contradic
tion and impeachment have been the lead
ing features. They are few who believe
the trial will result in a conviction, but
many anticipate disagreement.
Mrs John Davis, the wife of one of the
men charged with being an accessory to
the Goebel assassination, was the first
witness to-day. Caleb Powers, she said,
boarded at her house. John Powers was
also there Jan. 25. She testified that the
latter was ill in his room at her house,
and did not leave his rocm after 11 o'clock
that day. This was a contradiction of the
testimony of Ro> ert Noakes who to and of

as evidence the act of (he Legislature ap
pr. i dating SIOO,OOO for the apprehension

act was made a part of the testimony.
Walter Day. former Republican state
treasurer, testified that Youtsey sent for
fcirn the day before the shooting. He went
to see Youtsey and the latter told him
that for S3OO he would settle the contest.
Witness pressed Y'outsey to know how he
would accomplish it, but the latter would
only say for that amount he would set
Witness refused to confer further with
Stamper Under Fire.
Rev. John Stamper, who testified for the
defense several days ago,was the first wit
ness called by the prosecution in rebuttal.
He was recalled for the purpose of laying
the foundation for a contradiction. He de
nied that he told several people several
days after the confession of his brother
in-law. Wharton Golden, that he believed
the latter had told the truth; that he did
not want him to rail into the hands of the

Mid that he was vcTy much in sympathy
with the prosecution, was objected to by
the defense, and the jury was withdrawn
while it was argued. Bradley said the
purpose of the question was to show the
interest of the witness in the subject mat
ter and subsequently to show that he
had changed his sympathies to the de
fense, so he had received money from
representatives of that side. The proof, j
he said, showed that Stamper had been 1
playing fast and loose with both sides, j
and the question was as to his credibil- i
ity. The court decided that the question
was competent. The witness said he had

Henry Hazelwood, a lawyer cf Laurel

VALDOSTA’S NEWER TROUBLE.
Work on n Nexv Artesian Well—Put
ting in Water Meters.
Valdosta, Ga., Aug. 10 —The workmen,
who have been engaged in digging tho
system of sewers here, have had a great
deal of trouble recently, but it Is believed
now that the worst part of their work is
over. In the western part of the city they
encountered a flow of water that knock
ed them entirely out for awhile. At a
distance of twenty-six feet below the
ground, they struck a strata of "hard
pan.” a substance resembling a mixture
of iron, sand and rock. The crust was
about four or five* inches thick, and so
hard that It seemed impossible to pene
trate it for awhiie. When it was punc
tured, a stream of water broke through
with a flow of four hundred gallons a
minute. To get rid of this water a twen
ty-flve-horse-power engine and pump had
to be operated continuously. After sev
eral weeks of this sort of work, the pq>*
ing has been laid there, and the tunnel
under the Savannah. Florida and Western
road, another difficult piece of work, has
been effected. The piping under the road
was laid yesterday, and only four hundred
feet more of the tweniyaslx feet ditch
remains to be cut. After that is finished,
a quarter of a mile of piping will have
to be laid, at a depth of from twelve to
seventeen feet, to connect with the outfall
on the south of the city. The sewerage
people are boastful of the work they are
doing, and al! declare that the system
here will be second to none in the coun
Work has been commenced on the new
artesian well here, and is to be pushed
rapidly through. The machinery was
placed in position early In the week and
began operating yesterday. The new
well is to be bored at the, water station,
nnd a large reservoir is to he placed in
the street adjoining. The reservoir is to
he covered over so as to hide it from view
and to leave the street open for travel.
It is estimated that the well will cost
about $1,509, and that It wiil double the
city's water supply. The contractors be
lieve that they will succeed in tapping a
vein of sulphur water as strong- as that
from the old well. No trouble has been
exserienced In boring so for. and none Is
apprehended, as the other well was made
in a short time and with no trouble at nil.
The city plumbers hove been busily en
gaged in putting In meters where water
Is used for street sprinklers. About sixty
parties In the city use water for sprink
ling their lawns, nnd the City Council re
centiy decided to adopt the meter sys
tem where the water I* used for these
purposes, making each citizen pay in pro
portion to the amount of water he uses.
Another advance step upon the port of
the municipal government here Is an In
crease in the number of arc lights here.
In the past Valdosta has been lighted by
thirty-five arc lights, but the town ha*
expanded to such an extent that twenty
five extra light# have been ordered, mak
ing the number In the city even sixty.
It Is believed that this number will give
the town much better lights than they
have ever had before.

From the New York Press.
Over which shoulder do you look the
easier when It is necessary to turn your
head, the right or left 7 A popular the
atrical manager who has been an excep
tionally close observer says the left, but
ha* no explanation of the phenomenon.
Let ten friends be walking ahead of you,
suddenly hall them and see how many
look liack over the left shoulder. He ea.vs
the proportion Is about 9 to 1. He who
looks over the right shoulder is usually
left-handed. Says this expert: ‘‘For the
last eighteen year* I have notified that
the proscenium box on tho left of the au
ditorium ls usually selected when there
is a choice between It and the one on tho
right; people always tell me that they like
it bemuse they can see better—that Is. by
looking at the stage with the head turned
toward the left." 1
This ls an Interrsttng observation, and
there is ample reason for the peculiarity,
but I have not noticed that the boxes
on the south side of the Metropolitan
Opera House command larger prices than
those on the north. Perhaps this may
bo accounted for by tho assumption that
tho stage of the Metropolitan is not so
much looked at as the folk and doings in
the auditorium. Those who look to tho
right to see the performance look to the
left to see the people of fine raiment and
beautiful ffesh. Some persons find It Im
possible to wink with both eyes, and the
one they do wink with usually Is the
weaker of the two. The left-handed mail
will look through a telescope with his
right eye, while the right-handed one will
use the left in reading the stars through
that Instrument. Some runners lead off
on the right foot, others on the left. Fond
mothers err In educating their children to
use the right hand more than the left;
It were better if they would teach boya
and girls to be ambidextrous.

Columbia, 8. C., Auk. Ift -Senator Till
man to-day gave hia views on the Chin*
question. He Is unalterably opposed, he
say*, to missionaries going to China to
teach religion, favore convening Con
gress at this crisis, and will support an
alliance with Great Britain and Japan to
prevent partition. He said:
"Since the downfall of Napoleon Europe
has not faced such a earioua situation. It
is a great pily the United States is com
pelled to mix up in it, but we are neces
sarily forced to protect our ambassador,
and, as far as possible, to protect the
mlsrlonaries who have ventured Into the
interior. 1 uhl.c op.nion Is universally in
favor of going that far, but President Mc-
Kinley haa already transcended his con
stitutional authority and should hav* ca'l
ed Congress together as soon as the ait
nation became scute. If bn can Invade
China with one regiment without author
ity of Congress there le no limit to his
use of troops. A brigade, a division, an
army corps, can be sent there by execu
tive order with just as much authority,
and the power visted In Congress to de
clare war Will have been usurped to all
practical purposes by the President. No
doubt the President would have convened
Congress but for the fact that we have
an election on hand; but that is no excuse
for Ignoring hie oath of office and over
riding the conslltutlcn
The policy to be pursued In the event
of the capture of Pekin by the allied forces
is the one which should cauee as much
concern a the usurpation of power by
the President. The partition of China
ought not to be thought of for a moment;
certainly the American people do no*
want any share of the country Our in
terest le to preserve trade relations and
an equality of duties with our competi
tors In manufactures.
"I would support a policy looking to the
maintenance of the Integrity of the Chi

willing to see England, Japan and ths
United State* form, an offensive and de

“In regard to the missionaries and the
future effort to force the Chinese to pro

not admit the Chinese, even to work, and
the ides of their sending missionaries
here to preach Is as preposterous to us
ss our sending missionaries to them. If
the Christian religion cannot an
entrance to the Chinese people on Its mer
