Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 14.—The final in

Cantrill this ever.ing in the Powers trial.
a: and Judge James Sims, made the opening
argument to the jury for the defense.
Defendant Powi rs is in such a nervous
and critical condition that his attorneys
filed a physician's affidavit that he was
unable to attend a night session of the
court, but Judge Oantrlll said a cot could
be provided for him ard he could lie down
in the court room during the speeches.
Powers was able to sit up to-night, how

Powers’ chances of acquittal, although
they are ill confident of a verdict in his
The court instructed the jury that an
accessory before the fact may be convict
ed, although the person who committed
the act is never identified, apprehended
or tried, an-d that if the jury believe
from the evidence, beyond a reasonable
doubt that the defendant conspired with
the other persons indicted, or any other
persons, to procure or bring about the
murder of Goebel they ought to find the
defendant guilty of murder and fix his
punishment at death or confinement in the
state penitentiary for life, in their discre
The court further instructed the jury
that if Powers was a party to a con
spiracy they ought to find him guilty,
whether he was present at the time of
the shooting or wounding or no-t, or
whether the identity of the person shoot
ing and wounding said William Goebel be
established or not; and if the jury shall
find the defendant guilty they ought to
fix his punishment as indicated.
The court instructed that the jury can
not convict the defendant upon the tes.i
r.iony of an accomplice unless such testi
mony be corroborated by other evidence
tending to connect the defendant with the
commission of the offense.
Every fact and circumstances necessary
to constitute the guilt of the defendant,
the court says, ought to be proved to
the satisfaction of the jury beyond a
reasonable doubt, and unless the defend
ant has been so proven guilty beyond a
reasonable doubt, the jury ought to find
him not guilty.
Judge S!ms in his speech to-night said
the proof in the case had not borne out
er e statements of the case made for the
commonwealth by Col. T. C. Campbell.
He t*6ok a shot at Campbell by saying If
ihe commonwealth attorney had stated
the case he wou'd have stuck to the facts
that c u and be proved. He dilated at length
on Coolman's testimony that if the fall
of the bullet was 113-16 of an inch in
passing through Goebel's body it could
only have been fired from a point seven
feet above Power's office window.

London, Aug. 14.—President Kruger at
one time made a formal application to the
United States to grant him a sanctuary in
case the necessity arose.
This occurred, according to Secretary of
State Reitz, of the Transvaal Republic,
(he day Lord Roberts entered Pretoria.
The details of the event have been re
lated to a representative of the Associated
Press by Mr. F. W. Unger, who has just
returned from the Transvaai and who has
secured the information from Secretary
Reitz and others.
After quoting the secretary as saying
President Kruger would never take to the

President Kruger expressed fears con

government and wished to guard against
any possible British landing parties. Mr.

Washington. Aug. 14.—1 t is said at the
State Department that no formal appli

for sanctuary in the American consulate
for President KrugeK and that the in
structions sent to the consul to confine
his energies to his consular duties were
not a result of any discussion of an
asylum for the Boer President, as the de

had visited the President.
It appears that some intimation on the
subject reached the officials here, but it
is said to have been not such a formal

Had formal application been made, it is
stated that it would have been passed
