1 lie Prosecution Will Re Made This
Morning—Powers, Campbell Said,
First Thought of an Alibi tils
Shrewd Means of Having One.
Scathing Denunciations Made.
Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 17.—The argu
ment in the case of Caleb Powers, charg
ed with being an accessory to the mur
]?r of William Goebel, was not conclud
rl today, the court refusing td hold a
night session. Commonwealth Attorney
Robert Franklin will make the closing
spe l h for the prosecution to-morrow
The argument for the defense was clos
e! by ex-Gov. Jolfh Young Brown. The
entire morning session and nearly an hour
This afternoon were taken up by Col. T.
C. Campbell for the prosecution. Col.
Campbell intimated that Jim Howard
fired the shot, but subsequently said:
“I do not know who tired the shot that
knit*! Goebel, but it was one of the five
principals named in the indictment—Jim
Howard. Berry Howard, Henry Youtsey,
liarland Whittaker and “Tallow Dick”
Combs, and every one of them was there
by procurement of Caleb Powers and W.
At the close of Col. Campbell's speech,
the court announced a modification of the
instructions to the jury, defining the
words “unlawful act” to be “to alarm, in
cite. terrorize or do bodily harm.” This
v ion instructs the jury that if Powers
ar l others conspired to do an unlawful
c 1 and as a result of this William Goebel
was killed, it should find* Powers guilty of
Col. Campbell cited statistics showing
a comparison of the murders committed
;n Kentucky and Ohio. During the four
years of Gov. Bradley’s administration,
h said, there were 896 murders in Ken
tuck;. There were 285 convictions for mur
der and 216 pardons of murderers. For
the same period. Ohio, with double the
population of Kentucky, had only forty
nine murders. Caleb Powers had, he de
clared. in the brief time he' acted as Sec
retary of State, attested the pardons of
seven murderers who were set free by
H< took the diagram of the State Capitol
grounds, and tftis in connection with the
measurements of civil engineers and the
autopsy on the body of Goebel, were used
in :racing the bullet. By this he said U
;; . inclusively proved that the shot was
find from Caleb Powers’ office and defied
th* defense to try to shake the correctness
of the demonstration. He referred to At
torney Owens of the defense as one of
Powers’ fellow' assassins, and said that
while he always refrained from calling
men liars, the temptation was great in
tin case of Lawyer Sinclair, “who made
himself one of three witnesses who test!-’
fi**d that the sound did not come from the
direction of Powers’ office, while over 100
other witnesses testified that it did come
from that direction.”
Campbell continued: “All shrewd crimi
nals, of which class Cal-b Powers is one,
first arrange for an alibi. The mountain
army was brought to Frankfort, Jan. 25,
and, thinking it would perfoim its mur
derous mission, Powers goes to bed t
the house of John Davis, a conspirator,
but he foul de and is not committed and
Powers leaves his bed and waits for an
other day. On J; n. 30, the second appoint
ed day, he delves deeper Into the work of
establishing an advance alibi. He goes into
exhaustive details of locking his offi<*,
though he never locked it before, and
leaving for Louisville on pretense of
bnnging more nun 10 Frankfort. This
time th** plan is b tter laid, and as soon
a* the assassin’s bullet is fired from the
Secretary of State’s office, Powers raises
his hands and exclaims: “I am innocent
because I was in Louisville when the
murder occurrrcd.’ ”
Kx-Gov. John Young Brown, In closing
the case, characterized William Goebel
as a leader of men and the manner of
his taking off accursed. The state had
failed to make out a case connecting Ca
leb Powers with the murder. He attacked
the theory of the proseoufion that The bul
let cut from the hackberry tree was the
one which killed Goebel and declared that
the mathematical calculations of every
civil engineer who has testified here, if
fallowed to its logical end, proved tha*
He ridiculed the idea that the mountain
army was brought to Frankfort for the
purpose of intimidation or murder, ns
testified by Noakes, Culton and Golden,
and declared Culton, Golden and Noakes
absolutely unworthy of belief.

Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 17.—At the ses
sion to-day ot the International Tyix>-
grophlcal Union a resolution by Delegate
Randlow of Cleveland was passed, declar
ing the International Typographical Union
to be distinctly a class organization and
that to subserve their interests os wage
workers it is essential that they act "as
a unit upon the political field, from
whence capital derives its power to op
press, and that it is the duty of every
member to sever affiliation with all po
litical parties of the exploiting class
which are constantly encroaching upon
the liberties of the working people.”
The passage of this resolution is look
ed upon as a victory for Debs" followers.
The proposition of the stereotypers and
electrotypers to withdraw from the Inter
national Typographical Union, was lost,
101 to 81.

Charleston, S C.. Aug, 17.—The first

The feeling against Capt. W. St. Juiien
Jervey and Capt. W. Elmore Martin, the
candidates for sheriff. Is running very
high. While Martin was speaking a'd*r
vey man by name of O'Brien, who is
quite well known, tried to ask him a ques

going to allow himself to be Interrupted
by “any bum.”
O'Brien jumped on the stand and was
followtd by others. People got between
him and Martin, and quiet was finally re
stored. bin for a time the chance of a gen

Washington. D. C., Aug. 17.—The death

a few years ago in one of the greatest
struggles between corporation and anti

The most important link in many ways
in Huntington's plan for a huge trans
continental railroad, connecting San
Francisco with Newport News, was the
Cincinnati and Ohio, which was charter
ed in Kentucky. Asa member of the state
Senate, Goebel fathered a measure which
sought to forfeit the charter of this rail
At first the big railroad magnate laugh
ed at Goebel, but he soon found he was
up against a hard proposition and person
ally took charge of his Interests in the
Blue Grass state. Then began a contest
which was even fiercer In some respects
than that between Goebel and the Louis
ville and Nashville Railroad, which real
ly culminated in the death of the ont-day
Goebel won, as he did In all of his fights
before the Legislature. The result was
that Huntington was glad to dispose of
his railroad in Kentucky and had to aban
don the most gigantic transportation
scheme of the Huntington brain.

MUCH MORE BEFORE POWERS.
Germany Feel* There U a Great
Deal to Be Done In China. Be
fore All In .Settled.
Berlin, Aug. 17.—The news regarding the
entrance Into Pekin was further con
firmed to-day by two telegrams received
by the Japanese legation in Berlin, one
dated Aug. 14, saying that the allied
forces were only ten miles from the capi
tal and the other briefly announcing that
they had entered.
This evening the German press accepts
the fall of Pekin as a fact. While ex
pressing joy at the happy discharge of one
part of the China programme, the papers
iwinf out that there is much left to do.
The Berliner Post says:
“A great thing has been done, but a
greater thing must be done before the
otllied l owers will be satisfied. It remains
to obtain redress for attacks upon the le
gations and other wrongs, particularly
Ahe assassinsrion of the German minis
ter, and to install a government which
will punish the guilty and give ample
guarantees against the recurrence of sim
ilar crimes.” %
The National Zeitung. the Freisinnige
Zeltung and the Vosslsche Zeitung ex
press themselves in a similar strain.
Referring to a number of special dis
patches appearing in German papers.
whWh claim that the United States gov
ernment. now that the members of the
foreign legations are relieved, is to with
draw from the international undertaking,
a high official of the German foreign of
fice said this evening:
“The Washington government has as
sured the other Powers of Its willingness
to co-operate In carrying out a joint pro
gramme. This assurance has sufficed . c o
far and will continue to suffice in spite of
newspaper stories to the contrary.”
Mr. John B. Jackson, United States
charge d’affaires, w’hen his attention was
eallled to these specials, said:
“The United States government has act
ed with the greatest harmony regarding
Chino, with Germany from the outset. In
fact up to Pekin the Powers are all
ugreed, but beyond that no agreement has
even been attempted. The future must be
left to new diplomatic negotiations.**
