Frankfort, Ky., June 1. Caleb
fowem and Jim 'Howard were par
i .loned today by Governor Wilson for
, alleged connection In the murder of
Governor William Goebel of Kentucky.
Power waa America's moat famous
jMinoner.-' He has been Incarcerated al
pioat nine years on a conspiracy charge
In connection with the killing of Ooe
bel. Howard was under life sentence
' la connection with the assassination.
' tmt he b under other convictions and
will not go stark free. 'T!'. '.'
, Powers, a young- motmtuiner. was
elected secretary of state en' the re
publican ticket nine years ago. , W'(l
llam Taylor, the republican nominee
for governor, was. declared elected.-
Ooebel, the 'detnocratj contented tha
election and bloody scenes followed.
Ooebel was shot down In front of the
capitoL .' Powers, then 10 years old,
was arrested and . tried ' four timet.
Each time It was claimed that Demo
cratic authorities packed tha juries.
When Wilson,, a republican... was
M4. ho aui4 nxM '
ers, if he becam convinced the pris
oner waa Innocent. . The pardon today
la tha result of his Investigation. .
'During the election campaign last
winter, the principal Issue at stake was
the fate of Ooebel. . Wilson had the
stamina to soy that he would free the
prisoner if he thought him Innocent.
In a state radically democratic, the
republican victory was the subject of
surprise for many days following. "
The aftermath of the pardon will be
as bitter as the day when clan killed
clan over the dispute of the election
when Ooebel was seated. .

v.'i tntit county, had tm-
talned an Injunction against the coun

from declaring the -local, option law

efforts. To make doubly sure,' the
two courts of that county declared the
law In effect and on July 1 the saloons
ke their exit from Umatilla county.
The action to 'secure the Injunction
was brought at Umatilla the same day
on which It was In this county. The
charges In the complaint were practi
cally the same as those made here, but
fter hearing the complaint read. Cir
cuit Judge Bean refused to grant the
injunction. It Is the belief In Uma

Steps are being taken In this city
today to prepare a reply to the charges
made and to ask for a dissolution of
the Injunction against the ' county
court granted by tha complaint filed
by Julius Roesch.' This action will be
taken early next week, but just when
Is not known today. Concerted ef
fort will be made to bring tha matter
a,, climax, before July which
