CALEB POWthS FREE
Former Kentucky Secretary of
Stale Is ParJoned.
PARDON FOR HOWARD ALSO
Governor Willson Grants Freedom tc
Two of the Leading Actors Convict
ed of Complicity in th Famous Goo
Frankfort, Ky., June 13.—Caleb
Powers and Jira Howard, who were
convicted of complicity in the assas
sination of Senator William Goebel,
were pardoned by Governor Willson
Powers was tried four times, the last
trial resulting in a disagreement.
Caleb Powers was released from jail
at 10 o’clock and went at once to a
hotel. He will Issue a statement soon.
The application for the pardon ot
Powers and Howard was supported by
petitions signed by nearly 500,000
persons, some 240,000 Kentuckians,
and a large proportion ar| democrats.
Story of the Case.
The campaign that ended in the de
feat of Goebel at the polls, the strug
gle Incident to his legislative contest
whereby he snatched the governorship
from Taylor, his asssasination and the
campaign of prosecution waged by
his partisans after his death, were
replete with dramatic situaUons and
crowded thd stage with actors who
played important parts, but of all the
participants, none, not even Goebel
himself, focured public attention more
clearly than Caleb Powers, the repub
lican secretary of state.
Powers has been fighting with a hal
ter around his neck for eight years.
•During all that time he has lain large
ly in the power of his political oppo
nents, the majority of those who were
engaged in prosecuting him being
partisans of Goebel. These oppo
nents were surrounded by a horde of
witnesses and detectives and backe' 1
by the $50,000 reward fund which the
Goebel democrats in the legislature
voted from the public treasury to se
cure the conviction of the murderers.
Tried for Life Four Times.
Four times has Powers been tried
for his life, the last trial resulting
in a hung jury.
At the hour Goebel was assassinated
in Frankfort Powers was some 200
miles away on a train bound for west
ern Kentucky where he intended rais
ing a second “peaceful ramy” or “peti
tion in boots” to protest against what
seemed would be the certain course of
the legislature in proceedings to oust
Governor Taylor and seat Goebel on
contest proceedings. He returned -to
Frankfort and remained there during
the stormy days that culminated in
the installment of Goebel as governor
upon his deathbed.
Attempted to Leave the Capital.
Soon after, seeing the trend of
events, Powers and a Frankfort po
liceman attempted to leave the capi
tal by stealth. They were caught
and when given a preliminary ar
raignment produced pardons signed by
Taylor and dated prior to Goebel’s in
stallation as governor. Although such
pardons issue'd in advance of trial had
been upheld by the Kentucky court of
appeals as legal, those produced by
Powers and his companion were held
to be of no effect and were cited by
Goebel men as additional evidence of
the guilt erf the accused.
Legal Battle of Eight Years.
Then followed during the course of
eight years four legal battles which
served to reveal the intensity of the
hatreds aroused by the memorable
struggle for the governorship.
James B. Howard ,is alleged to be
the man who fired the shot that killed
Goebel and he was under a life sen

Legislature Kills EII Providing for
Baton Rouge, La.. June 17. —Touts
iana will nut become a prohibition
state during the term of the present
assembly. This was decided by the
house of representatives when tha’
body, by a vote of 58 te 47, imlef
initely postponed consideration of the
Doussan bill providing for a referen
dum vote on state-wide prohibition.
The action of the house means com
plete defeat for the Doussan bill in
both branches cf the assembly.
The Sbattuck high license bill, mak
ing the minimum local license SSOO
and the minimum state license S2OO.
was passed by the house by a * r ote of
82 to 25. The effect of this bill will
be to Increase the state revenues be
tween $250,000 and $300,000 annually.
The Shattuck bill is now practical
ly certain to be passed by the senate,
with few, if any, modifications. Among
its most stringent provisions are the
No license shall be issued, to a wo
No woman, girl or minors shall be
permitted to drink in saloons, not even
in special rooms set apart for them.
Women are not permitted to serve
as bar maids.
Liquor shall not be sold to whites
and blacks in the same building.
The prohibition fight in Louisiana
has been- devoid of the popular cru
sade features participated in by wo
men and children, which have occur
red recently in ether states. The vote
which defeated the Doussan bill was
a measure of the strength of the pro
hibitionists. Many of the latter voted

Patrick Again Lose*.
New York, June 17. —The applica

ing a life sentence in Sing Sing prison
for the piurder of William Marsh Rice,
an aged Texas millionaire, for a writ
of habeas corpus, was denied by Judge
LaComle, in the United States circuit
court. Patrick set up the claim that
his conviction and sentence to death,
which has been commuted to life im
prisonment, was a result of a conspir
acy to plunder the Rice millions. The
motive, he asserts, was to prevent him
from enforcing will, leaving the
greater part of the Rice fortune to him.
Blind Tom’s Relatives.
Columbus, Ga., June 17. —The sur

world-famous negro musical prodigy,
desired that his funeral take place
in Columbus, the city of his birth,
and his burial in New Jersey is a
keen disappointment to them. He
was one of twenty-three children, of
whom only four are now living. His
aged mother died in Birmingham a
year or two ago. None of “Blind
Tom’s” brothers or sitters are endow
ed with musical talent and all of them
havs filled ordinary positions.
