FRANKFORT , Ky. , Fob .5. Armed
conflicts between the civil authorities
of Frankfort county and the National
Guard -of the state of Kentucky has
been averted and unless new causes
should come to the front there is small
likelihood that the political situation
will become as threatening as it has
during the last thirty-six hours.
Governor Taylor this morning or
dered the release of Alonzo Walker , for
the possession of whom Judge Moore
had declared that Sheriff Suter would
swear In a posse and take possession
of the capitol' grounds , if such an ex
treme became necessary.
While not recognizing in his action
the. existence of the writ of habeas
corpus which had been sworn out in
behalf of Walker , Governor Taylor ,
by releasing the man , removed the
mostlhreatening sign of trouble. The
commmanding officers of the troops
which guard the capitol grounds are
careful to say that the situation is en
tirely a military affair and that they
extend to * the writ of habeas corpus
very little consideration , but whether
they regard it or not , Walker is free
and Sheriff Suter will not be called
upon to summon force in the attempt
to secure his release.
The appalling consequences which
would follow such an effort on the part
of the sheriff were too much for the
more conservative members of the
democratic party , and it was decided
today that no matter what Judga
Moore should say as an individual
there would be no attempt to take pos
session of the capitol grounds by force
Even if Walker had been held a
much longer time than he actually
was held , no effort , the democratic
leaders had decided , should be made
for his rescue after the writ of habeas
corpus had failed.
Both sides will take a rest pending
the session of the republicans called
by Governor Taylor at London. No
democrats will attend this unless they
are taken there by the military forces
of the state , and no attempt will be
made in this direction by Governor
Taylor until he has afforded them
every opportunity to go to London of
their own accord. What will be done
when it has been made certain that
the democrats will not visit London
has not been definitely determined by
It is likely that matters will on both
sides be allowed to drift until the

The latter concluded that Walker
had lemained in custody for a sufli- >
cient length of time and told him to go
home. The charge of inciting mutiny i
has net been quashed , but Walker 1
may not be brought before a court-
martial , as was at one time contem
plate ! by the officers of the state
At 10 o'clock this morning Colonel
Roger Williams entered the room in ]
the executive building and remarked i
to Walker : "Well , Mr. Walker , we i
have agreed to an exchange of prison
ers and you are to be given your free
"I can go , can I ? " asked Walker.
"I guess so , " was the reply , and the
colonel then added with a laugh :
"We have exchanged you for one Sulti
and three Filipinos , and as we expect
them every minute I guess it will be
all right for you to have your free
Walker was then allowed to go after
notice had been served on him that the
charge against him was still pending
and could be quashed at any time if
the military authorities should so de
cide. He told Colonel Williams that
he intended to remain in Frankfort.
GOEBEL FINALLY SUCCUMBS.
Passes Away From the Assassin's Bullet
011 Saturday Evening
FRANKFORT , Ky. , Feb. 5. The
bullet fired by an unknown assassin
last Tuesday morning ended the life
of William Goebel at 6:46 o'clock Saturday -

The only persons present at the
death bed were Mr. Goebel's sister ,
Mrs. , Braunasker , and his brother ,

Goebel's bedside , and Dr. McCormick. .
Justus Goebel , another -brother who
has been hurrying from Arizona , as 1t
fast as steam would carry him , in a
vain hope of reaching his dying brother
in time for some token of recognition ,
arrived forty minutes too late.
Oxygen was frequently administered
the dying man during the afternoon in
an effort to keen him alive until his
brother's arrival , but in vain. For , by
the cruel irony of fate , the train on
which Justus Goebel was traveling to
Frankfort was delayed several hours
from various causes , and when M- .
Goebel finally reached here , it was
only to learn that his brother was

CHICAGO , Feb. 5. The funeral
train bearing the bodies of Major Gen
eral Henry W. Lawton , Major John A.
Logan and Major E. L. Armstrong ar
rived at the Chicago & Northwestern
depot at 9 o'clock tonight , fourteen
hours ahead of time. Awaiting the
train were Mrs. John A. Logan , Major
Logan's mother ; Charles E. Wilson ,
secretary of Governor Mount of In
diana , representing the state in receiv
ing General Lawton's body , and sev
eral local committees.
When the train stopped Mrs. Logan ,
followed by the escort of sixteen men
from the Seventeenth Illinois infantry
was one of the first to mount the steps
of the sleeping car , in which was the
widow of General Lawton , with Major
General Shafter and his staff.
Mrs. Lawton was comforting her
young son , Manley , when Mrs. Logan
appeared. There was a moment of si
lence and suspense. Then the two
bereaved women , overcome by emo
tion , embraced , and mingled their
tears. Finally Mrs. Logan said :
"My dear child , my woa is yours ; we
have given that which we loved best
to our country. God is the judge , and
before Him we must bow and say :
'Thy will be done. ' "
Mrs. Lawton was unable to speak.
She was violently shaken by her grief ,
and as the two women wept together
their emotions proved too strong , and
they fainted simultaneously. Captain

St. Louis Loses Some of Its Largest
Stores by Pirn.
ST. LOUIS , Mo. , Feb. 5. Property
of the estimated value of $1,500,000 to
$2,000,000 was burned today , the
greater part of four blocks of build
ings and their contents , between Third
and Sixth streets and Franklin
avenue and Morgan street , in the heart
of the retail section , being destroyed.
One fireman was killed , nine other
members of the fire department were
injured more or less seriously and five
or six citizens slightly hurt.
Definite figures of losses are exceed
ingly hard to obtain. The fact that it
was Sunday , and that neither proprie
tors nor insurance adjusters were at
their places of business , contributed
much to this. Few proprietors or own
ers could be found and those Avho
were , declared their inability to give
definite information. There were six
retail concerns which were heavy
losers. The balance of the loss is di
vided in varying proportions among a
score or more small shopkeepers or

FRANKFORT , Ky. , Feb. 5. It has
practically been decided that the re
mains ; of Governor William Gosbel will
be ] buried in Frankfort in the cemetery
overlooking the KentucKy river , where
lie i the remains of Daniel Booone and
several Kentucky governors , eminent
jurists and soldiers. Arthur and Jus
tus Goebel , Senator-elect Joseph Blackburn - _
burn , S. J. Shackelford , cleric of the'
court of appeals , and Warden Lilard
visited the cemetery today and spent
some time in looking over the ground
with a view to selecting a suitable
spot for the last resting place of Gee
bel. Though no definite decision was
reached , a spot in the vicinity of the
immense shaft erected in honor of
Kentucky's dead soldiers , nearly the
highest point in the beautiful cemetery
was favored , and will probably finally

LONDON , Feb. n. The war office is
silent as regards General Buller , but
there is every reason to believe he is

ing of the Tugela river and believe he
was engaged yesterday. The message
from Ladysmith Thursday saying the
Boer forces were leaving again and
that the besieging force was consider
ably diminished tends to confirm this.

BEGINNING OF CRISIS IS AT HAND
Democratic Adjutant General May Or
ganize Militia of His Own Uccklinm
to Act as Governor Kcgiiliir State
Troops Hold Frankfort Under Orders
of Taylor's Appointee.
FRANKFORT , Ky. , Feb. 3. The
first clash between the legislative and
judiciary powers of the state occurred
today. A still greater clash is immi
nent -tomorrow and beyond the possi
bilities of tomorrow lies a sea with
skies so lowering and of so stormy an
aspect that no politician of either
party can predict where it will carry
the Kentucky ship of state.
There is the chance that things will ,
an Congressman June Gayle expresses
it , "drift around all right , " but there
are other chances , also , and if things
are to "drift around all right. " they
must strike a counter current and
strike it soon.
There can no longer be any conceal
ment of the fact that affairs in this
state are bordering on conflict in arms
and the beginning of the crisis is at
hand. It may be that the political
difficulties will be settled by courts of
law , but the hearts of men are hot in
Kentucky now and legal process may
provide a remedy too dilatory to please
a few of the more impatient and it is
in the power of these to create a
world of woe at almost any time.
The clash of today came when an of
ficer of the circuit court of Franklin
county was arrested by the militia ,
while attempting to serve a notice of
legal proceeding on Governor Taylor.
The clash of tomorrow may come
when the officers of that court attempt
to enforce the ruling of its presiding
judge. Behind this judge the demo
crats will have tomorrow for the first
lime an active executive head in the
person of Acting Governor Beckham
and , from the democratic standpoint ,
a regularly appointed adjutant general
whose order the trcops now encamped
around the capitol building arc bound
to obey. It they decline tj obey the
now adjutant general , the democrats
claim , he will have power to organize
military forces of his own and proceed
against all people who defy the au
thority of his office and that of the
governor of the state which he repre
On the other hand , the republicans
are fixed in their attitude that there
is an insurrection in the state , that
Beckham and his actions , his adju
tant general and his orders are these
of the people acting in opposition to
law. They believe that they alone
are in the rigut and as there can be
but one right and all else wrong , those
who show resistance to the proclama
tions of Governor Taylor are in rebel
lion against the commonwealth. They
will resist all attempt of any kind to
remove them from their position
around the capitol , resisting force with
force , and that means civil war.
Alonzo Walker , a stenographer em
ployed by the democratic attorneys ,
was placed under arrest today in the
capitol ground charged with conduct
tending to incite mutiny and riot.
The conduct consisted of pinning to
the door of the private office of Gov-
emor Taylor a notice that tomorrow
morning the democratic attorneys
Tvould appear before Judge Cantrell of
the circuit court and ask for an in
junction restraining Governor Taylor
from all interference with the move
ments of the legislature , and from his
anounced intention to move it to Lon
don. Walker was at once taken into
custody by order of Colonel Roger
Williams , the commanding officer of
the forces now gathered around the

WILL LET THEM F1G.1T IT OUT.
Federal Government Hun no Intention of
Interfering In Kentucky Affairs.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 2. No call for
federal troops 1ms yet been recaived
from Kentucky. Moreover , the oflicials
of the War department see no reason
to expect an application at this time
certainly and probably not at all. The
official view Is that the present con
test In Kentucky is purely a state
matter , and up to this moment it has
presented no features that would war
rant the intervention of the United
States government. The exact funct
ions of the United States army when
acting within a state have been most
carefully defined and set out in gen
eral order No. 2 , promulgated July 24 ,
Under the terms of this order the
government of the United States can
of its own volition use the federal
troops within a state only when "in
surrection , domestic violence , unlawful
combinations or conspiracies in any
state so obstructs or hinders the exe
cution of the laws thereof and of the
United States as to deprive any portion
tion or class of the people of such
state of any of the rights , privileges
or immunities , or protection , named in
the constitution , and secured by the
laws for the protection of such rights ,
privileges or immunities , and the con
stituted authorities of such state are
unable to protect or from any cause
fail in or refuse protection of the people
ple in such rights. "
It does not appear to the officials
here that the conditions described in
this statute now exist in Kentcky.
Another case in which the United
Stales troops might be employed is
set out in section No. 5297 , Revised
Statutes , authorising the president to
employ troops in case of an insurrect
ion in any state against the govern
ment thereof "on application of the
legislature of such state or of the exe
cutive thereof , when the legislature
cannot be convened. "
It will be noticed in the cases above
cited in which troops may be employed
the president is allowed to exercise "his
discretion in meeting the request ; it
is not mandatory upon him to accede
to it. Were this not the case , upon
the president after all might be placed
the responsibility for a decision be
tween the rival claimants for the Ken
tucky governorship. Assuming that
the legislature has been legally ad
journed by Governor Taylor and that
it cannot be reconvened before the
date specified in his proclamation ,
either of the persons claiming to be
governor of Kentucky might call upon
the president for troops and thus
oblige him to decide the issue , had he
not the reserved right to decline to
meet either request. A like situation
might arise , should two legislatures be
organized , a contingency which is look
ed upon as extremely probable by the
So it may be stated that the posi
tion of the administration in its decis
ion to refrain from Intervention in
Kentucky remains unshaken by any
of the events of the last twenty-four
hours , and in all likelihood the" only
happening which could induce the
ordering of troops into the state would
be an assault upon United States prop
erty and courts or mails , and inter
state commerce , and even in such case ,
it is privately declared on the highest
military authority , that the troops
would not be used to further any in
terests in the state or to meddle in
its politics or for any other purpose
than the defense of the United States'
