Kentucky Republicans Nom
inate Yerkes for Governor.
DENOUNCE DEMOCRATIC OFFICIALS
Repeal of the Goebel election ha.tr
Is' Demanded by the Plat
form. LOUISVILLE, July 17. The Republican
State Convention today nominated for
Governor Hon. John W. Yerkes, of Dan
ville, adopted a platform declaring the
Issue of the election to be the Goebel elec
tion law, and adjourned within three
hours. No nominations were to be made
except for Governor, this year's elec
tion In Kentucky being an extraordinary
one to fill the vacancy In the Governor
ship mado by the death of William Goe
bel. The present Governor, Beckham, will
hold office only until his successor is
elected, when he will again become Lieutenant-Governor.
Hon. John W. Yerkes,
the nominee for Governor, is a lawyer,
and one of the most prominent Republi
cans in Kentucky. He is at present a
Collector of Internal Revenue.
Chairman of the State Central Commit
tee Barnett called the convention to or
der and presented ex-Lieutenant-Governor
John Marshall, of Louisville, who
was made temporary chairman. Mr.
Marshall's speech dealt largely with
Kentucky's political affairs. He severe
ly criticised the course of the Democrats
In unseating Governor Taylor and the
other Republicans, who he claimed were
fairly and legally elected, and said the
assassination of Mr. Goebel was no Justi--fication
for such high-handed proceedings
as followed that "dastardly act."
"What confidence can we have in the
sincerity of" the declaration that govern
ment exists only by the consent of the
governed," he asked, "when we see with
out complaint a state administration
forced upon our own people to which they
have never assented? Liberty is but a
mockers' if such a condition can continue
to exist. The law that made possible
this outrage ought to be repealed If we
expect to have a free government in this
state. Utterly bad in principle, it has
been demonstrated to be even worse In
Judge T. Z. Morrow was elected per
manent chairman, and he roused the con
vention to a high pitch of enthusiasm by
a vigorous speech. In which he declared
that "the Democratic officials at Frank
fort hold their offices by the same title
by which a wolf holds a sheep that It has
just taken from the fold."
The platform adopted contained three
planks, the second and third respectively
Indorsing the Philadelphia convention and
its nominees, and urging the Government
to protect Americans In China, and the
first dealing with the state campaign.
This is a bitter denunciation of the pres
ent Democratic Administration, and the
Democratic majority in the Legislature,
and contains the following:
"The first duty of Kentucky citizenship
is to repeal the Goebel election law,
which is the source and continuing
strength of the wrongs done In this state.
A vote of confidence next November In
men who arc usurpers of office and who
have for a year past been acting together
to thwart the declared will of the people

statute books. The Goebel law must be
abolished or republican institutions must

Ing the Goebel election law, and he dis
cussed at great length the last election
The nomination of Mr. Yerkes was made
by acclamation. He was escorted to the
hall, and when the cheering had sub
sided, addressed the convention. Mr.
Yerkes said in part:
"Today we are citizens of a state flying !
the black flag of political tyranny and J
usurpation, a state officered by men de
feated at the polls; a state where, by j
Democratic alchemy, a minority is trans- i
raltted Into a majority; where, by most I
vicious legerdemain, outrage and political
dishonesty the will of the people, as ex
pressed at the polls, is nullified and over
thrown. "We have in Kontuckv. under our elec
tion law, the only imperialism of this j
era an Imperialism that, with Oriental
denial of right. Justice and law, rob3
more than one-half the electors of this
state of the Constitutional privilege of
having a voice in the selection of those
who bear the rule over them.
"But men will soon learn that village
tyrants cannot expand Into state tyrants.
That all of the people will not endure
what "a part of the people may bear. The
Democratic imperialism began by uncon
stitutional Democratic legislation affect
ing municipal and district elections, dis
franchising Republicans by subdivisions.
As necessity grew, as from being Repub
lican only In certain sections the state as
en entirety became such. Democratic im
perialism grew with equal step, and round
its culmination in the Goobel election law.
This law is fatal to fairness and honesty
In elections, to a free ballot and a fair
count, to popular sovereignty, to un
trammelod suffrage, to local self-government.
"The Republican party and thousands
of peaceful citizens who are not Repub
licans but are joined with us In this
cor9ict for our common liberties ha6
dedicated themselves without reservation,
without counting the cost, to the restora
tion of civil liberty by repeal of the Goe
bel election law."
A feature of the convention was the
giving of three cheers for Mrs. W. S. Tay
lor, wife of the cx-Govrnor, who. with
four of her daughters, occupied a box.

Supreme Court, by acclamation.
Congressman David M. Dc Armond.
temporary chairman, In the course of his
speech, discussed the Kansas City plat
from, which he said rightly put impe
rialism down as the chief issue of the
campaign. The outbreak in China, he
continued, calls for prompt and patriotic
"This outbreak and the condition in
which we now find ourselves," declared
Mr. De Armond. "illustrates the phil
osophy of our party that it is the duty
of the Government to attend to Its own
business and the Interests of its own
people, and avoid entanglements abroad.
We must act as an American nation, not
as a part or any aggregation, not as a
faction of some great European power.'
Congressman De Armond's speech was
frequently applauded.When he pointed
to ex-Congressman Dockery, the Demo
cratic nominee for Governor, and said
It was Dockery who led the fight against
the DingJoy tariff bill, predicting that
It would build up the trusts, the delegates
stood up and cheered. They applauded
vigorously when he said he hoped the
remnant of the Boer patriots would come
to America ana find a home here.
At the afternoon session the temporary
organization was made permanent and the
platform adopted as reported. It fol
lows: "The Democracy of Missouri, ln state
Judicial convention assembled, most sin
cerely and cordially Indorse and reaffirm
the platform of political principles enun
ciated and adopted by the National con
vention held at Kansas City, July 4, and
also the platform of principles adopted by
the state Democratic convention held at
Kansas City, June 5.
"And we further commend and approve
of the nominations made by these con
ventions as well as state offices, In
dorsing the nominees collectively and In
dividually aa being true representatives
of the Democratic party. We commend
these nominees to the most earnest and
cordial support of every friend of hu
man liberty and the rights of man and
as being worthy of the ballot of every
patriot and every man claiming to be
a Democrat and a lover of his country."
Morton Jordan, of St. Louis, made the
nominating speech placing the name of
Judge Gantt before the convention. The
nomination was made by acclamation and
the convention adjourned sine die.
Bryan Hopes to Capture All of It,
Despite the Silver Flank.
LINCOLN, Neb., July 17. William J.
Bryan was asked if the anti-Imperialist
vote would be seriously affected by the
announcement of some of the opponents
of Imperialism that they will oppose him
on account of the silver plank In the plat
form. He replied:
"Several gold-standard opponents of im
perialism have already announced their
Intention to support the Democratic
ticket. Although the Anti-Imperialist
League has not acted officially in such
matter, each individual is governed by
his own views as to the relative Import
ance of the Issues. The Democratic plat
form declares the question of Imperial
ism to be the paramount Issue. If any
opponent of imperialism refuses to sup
port the Democratic tlcicet because of the
silver plank. It must be because he con
siders the money question more Important
than the Philippine question; that is, he
prefers a gold-standard empire to a bi
metallic republic. When the test comes,
I bolleve that those who adhere to the
doctrine that governments derive their
Just powers, not from superior force, but
from the consent of the governed, will
support our tickets even If they do not
Indorse the silver plank. A large ma
jority of the Democrats believe that a
restoration of blmetallsm will prove a
blessing, but the anti-imperialists who
dispute this will admit that any evils
that might arise from blmetallsm could
bo corrected more easily than the evils
which would follow from the deliberate
indorsement of militarism and imperial
ism." Kentucky Democrats.

No Occasion for an Extra Session
NEW YORK. July 17. Congressman
Charles H. Grosvenor, of Ohio, said last

every one of them there Is the same

B4D FOR CALEB POWERS
SEVERAL WITNESSES TESTIFIED
One of Them "Was His Sweetheart
Culton, Tfokes or Golden May
Go on Stand Today.
GEORGETOWN, Ky., July 17. The pro
ceedings in the Powers case were mado
more interesting today by the introduc
tion of several witnesses who gave testi
mony against tho defendant. The most
Interesting witness of the day, from a
standpoint not connected with either side
of the case, was Miss Lucy Brock, the
sweetheart of the young defendant. It Is
probable that either Culton, Nokes or
Golden will be put on the stand tomor
row further to prove tho alleged conspir
acy. Flnley Anderson, who was testifying In
the Powers case when the court ad
journed yesterday, resumed his testimony
today. Witness said that January 24, Ca
leb Powers told him that a crowd of
mountaineers were going to Frankfort to
intimidate the Legislature, and, if neces
sary, to kill enough Democrats to give
the Republicans a majority. He said:
"Powers told me Goebel would never live
MINISTER E. H. CONGER AT HIS DE SIC IN HIS PRIVATE OFFICE IN THE
LEGATION BUILDING AT PDKIN.
(From a photogra ph taken May 16.)
to be Governor, and said he (Powers)
would kill him If nobody else would."
The conversation took place on the day
preceding the advent of the 120) moun
taineers Into Frankfort. Witness said he
heard Powers and others talking about
Goebel wearing a coat of mail, but some
of them said that he could be killed any
way. Powers was in conference with Sec
retary of State Charles Flnley, Wharton
Golden. Robert Nokes and others.
Only once during this testimony did the
defendant's features show signs of-agitation.
Under cr6ss-cxamlnation the wit
ness stated he had called on Co'onel T.
C. Campbell. In Cincinnati, but became I
confused, and could not recall who ac
companied him on his visit to Colonel
Campbell, though he claimed several peo
ple were with him at the time. He d-j
nled that either Jeter or Arthur Goebel i
assisted him In getting employment in
Cincinnati, and denied that his trip to
Cincinnati was for the purpose of becom
ing a witness In the Powers trial. The
witness denied that he htd been prom
ised compensation for his evidence.
It developed that young Anderson had
made an affidavit in Cincinnati, which is
in possession of Colonel Campbell, and
the defense asked that this be produced
In court. The court ruled that It must be
produced. On redirect examination, wit
ness said he did not volunteer a3 a wit
ness, but received a letter while at Knox
ville, Tenn., asking him to go to Cincin
nati and telling him that he was wanted
as a witness.
Miss Lucy Brock, of London. Laurel
County, was the next witness. She know
the defendant well, and had corresponded
with him for over two years post. Caleb
Powers called on her In January. Ho
told the withoss he was getting up a
crowd of 1000 mountain men to go to
Frankfort "so that In case the Democrats
robbed them of their offices they cou.d
take care of themselves." The wltnes
said Powers had J1100 in bills. He told her
Governor Taylor had furnished the mon
ey and It was to be used to bring the
men to Frankfort. Miss Brock said Pow
ers told her the plan to take the 1OC0
mountain men to Frankfort was Governor
Taylor's creation. The defense did not
cross-examine the witness.
D. M. Woodson, the civil engineer who
made the measurements in the statehouee
yard at the time of the finding of the bul
let in the tree, was recalled, but told
Senator Newton Frazler, of Shelby
County, who was stnndlng between the
legislative and executive buildings when
the assassination occurred, said he heard
the shots, saw no Kne In the doorway,
and the shots were undoubtedly fired from
the executive building.

In addition the Immeasurable disgrace of

see how utterly trivial are the matters

been criticised, when compared with the
Immense substantial gains for American
honor which under that Administration
have been wrought."
Referring to the Kansas City conven
tion. Governor Roosevelt said:
"The dominant note of the Kansas City
convention was Insincerity. The con
vention that nominated Mr, Bryan In 1300
was In character Infinitely below that
which nominated him In 1596. In 1S96, for
all their wild and dangerous folly, his
advocates had at least the merit of sin
cerity In their bitter fanaticism. How
ever wrong-headed, they knew what they
believed, and they stated It without fear.
In 1S00 their actions were determined
purely by policy, and they, pandering to
the worst and most degraded passions
In our National life, enough in all con
science sake itself, was rendered lnftn-
itely worse because robbed of every ves
tige of honesty and sincerity. It took
them two days to find out what they
believed about silver, and this was the
only plank concerning which they took
the trouble td find out their beliefs at
all. They reasserted the doctrines of an
archy which they had preached in 1S96,
not because they longer believed in them,
but because they hoped by announcing
them to attract to themselves all men of
unsound and violent mind."
In the course of a bitter denunciation
of the Democratic opposition to the Ad
ministration's policy, Roosevelt said: '
"In China wo see at this moment the
awful tragedy that Is following just ex
actly such a move as that which the so
called anti-imperialists have championed
In the public eye. The Boxers In China
are the precise analogues and representa

of scuttle' In the Philippines, the policy
which our political opponents now cham
pion, the streets of Manila would have
witnessed such scenes as those on tho
streets of Pekln. To allow the Filipino
rebels to establish their own so-called
government and then to protect them
against other civilized nations would be
exactly as If we now sided with tho Box
ers In China, demanded for them the
'liberty to butcher their neighbors, al
lowed them to establish their own 'Inde
pendent government,' and then agreed to
protect them from tho wrath of civilized
mankind. A more wicked absurity than

with the Philippines was never enunciated

VICTORIA, B. C, July 17. The steamer
Empress of India tonight brings news of
the arrival of the Japanese steamer Kor
ko Maru at Che Foo. carrying 75 mission
aries and their families, who were on
duty at the British churches. They had
been chased about by mobs and in their
flight they had to pass two nights In
small boats. Captain Wise, of the Ameri
can cruiser Monocacy, has been appointed
by the 'allied forces as Superintendent of
Tong Ku. He is to undertake the duty
of supervising the operation of the rail
way trains for the purpose of sending
provisions and ammunition to the front.
Mrs. James, a missionary, who has re
turned to Shanghai from Tien Tsln and
Taku, and who was present at the bom
bardment, says that while the Tien Tsln
station was being fired on June 13, she
and many other womtn with children were
awakened at 4 A. M. and, after spending
the early morning in the compound
of the Town Hall, they were sent to Tong
Ku on flatcars. She was on the ship
during the bombardment, with a number
of other women and children. The resi
dents of Taku who were on tho Monocacy
say the roar of cannon was deafening.
The marines went ashore the day after
the capture of the forts and found the
ruins covered with blood. Headless and
armless bodies were strewn everywhere,
and the bluejackets gathered them and
cremated them in heaps.

An edict published In the Japanese
papers from the Empress Dowager tells
of the burning of the imperial palace by
Boxers June 13.
Native papers state that a Boxer pla

troops, will march from Pekln to Nankin
with them shortly. Our principal object
Is to burn and destroy the churches and
chapels, and then the telegraph and post

schools. The people need not be
frightened when they see our arrival
here. We are going to drive away the
foreigners so as to keep the Empire In
peace and comfort. Purchasing provis

market price, but sellers must also charge
moderately. We will not destroy Ya-

as usual. If any people disobey this
order they will be beheaded at onqe."
WORLD'S CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR.
Boundless Enthusiasm at the Lon
LONDON. July 17. Although now and
then young ladles were carried out of
the crowded meetings fainting and over
come by heat, the enthusiasm marking
the world's convention of the Young Peo
ple's Society of Christian Endeavor at the
Alexandria. Palace grounds was as strong
today as ever. The delegates burst Into
song today with the same boundless en
thusiasm as heretofore. The morning was
given up to demonstrations of the world
wide extent of the Endeavor movement.
Anxious inquiries for ministers whose
names appeared on the programme were
due largely to the delay In travel caused
by the burning of the steamship Saale
In New York Harbor.
Secretary John Willis Baer, speaking
of the growth of the movement, said the
Christian Endeavor badge was worn by
more than one brawny Briton, from Her
Majesty'3 ship Powerful In the famous
siege of Ladysmlth. Mr. Baer strongly
demanded that arbitration between Great
Britain and America be made compul
sory. "Cod may come and seals may
go," said he, "and boundary lines be held
In dispute, but palsied be the hand anil
L mute the tongue that should again sug
gest strife and bloodshed between Amer
ica and Great Britain."
The Rev. Francis E. Clark, president
of thi Society of Christian Endeavor, de
livered the presidential address. He spoke
of Christian Endeavor In the far East,
"In progressive Japan, In distressed China
and beginning in Corea." His tour of the
world, Mr. Clark said, had convinced him
that "tho Christian Endeavor tree would
bear fruit in any section." Describing the
greeting he received everywhere, Mr.
Clark said that In China it was peace,

John Willis Baer were re-elected respect
