of mourning. The awful scono of yes

calm of despair had taken its place.
Tho agonized shrieks of the widows and
the moans of the fatherless woro no

beyond all that, and thoir grief could
Undo no utterance. When the removal
of tho bodies from tho initio began yes

thoir services lor the purpose. Thefo
rescuers came from other mines and
towns surrounding, and worked'iuces
Hiiutly to bring out tlio burned and
mangled remains of tho dead miners.
Tho bodies wero taken to the company
buildings iih soon as they wero brought
out of tho mine, and were there drcs.scd
and laid out preparatory to the coro
ner's inquest, and lor identification.
Many of tho rescuers camo near los
ing their lives from tho fatal after
damp, but tho work was continued iu
thu face of all dauber; and most of tho
bravo fellows remained at their jxists
until thoy woro almost ready to drop
from physical exhaustion and tho dead

Three hundred and ninety-eight men
entered tho miuo for work yesterday

GOEBEL MURDER CASE.
Cultim lleacrllipil Ilie Conference Held
Frankfort, Ky., May C W. II.Cul
ton resumed his testimmouy iu tho
(jocbel murder investigation today.
Ho stated that Govornor Taylor author
ized tho w!tue?8 to give Youtsey any
amount oPmoney desired if ho would
leuve Kentucky. At a conference in
Loxiugton, the Sunday before Goobel
was shot, it was decided that Repre
sentative Henry Horry, vho had been
unseated a fow days before, should go
to the houso of representatives next
morning and take his scat und refuse
to givu it up. Yuumoter, his opponent,
was to be in somo way prevented from
going to tho hall that morning. Caleb
Powers, who was at tho conference,
telephoned to Governor Taylor at
Fi auk fort two or three times in regard
to the conference. On cross-examination,
Culton faid ho did not know of
any list of state senators or represents
titvea who were to be put out of the
On ro-dlroct examination, Culton
said that Pergeant-at-Arms Haley
signed tho subpoenas for witnesses for
Governor Taylor to testify boforo the
gubernatorial contest committeo, and
authorized Culton to securo good men
in the various counties to servo them.
Culton said he did uot know whoro
Powers or Youtsey wero when tho shot
was fired. Tho last talk ho had with
Youtsoy, tho latter said tho plan to kill
Goobel had been abandoned. Cultou
had boen askod by Taylor to ascertain
what the witnessos in tho contest know,
becauso ho was n lawyer. To tho pros
ecution ho said ho had told moro now
on the stand than to any person oxcopt
his father. Here his testimony ended.
Circuit Court Clerk Moore, of Jack
son county, denied that Culton had
told him anything about the plan to
bring on a riot and kill Goobel and
other members of tho legislature.
Tho afternoon session of tho court
was taken up with testimony by the
surgeons, who conducted tho autopsy
on tho body of Goobel, and a civil
engineer who had niado a measurement
of the slate house yard. The prosecu
tion sought to show, from the nature
of the wounds nnd from the course of
the bullet, which is supposed to havo
passed through Goobel 's body and was
dug out of a tree near whore he fell,
that the shot was fired from a window
in tho ofllco of tho socrotary of state.
