witness stand hit story of Governor Gos
pel's murder. He named James Howard,
the defendant, aa the man who fired the
He said he saw Howard for the first time
few minutes before the shooting, though
he bad written to him at Governor Taylor'a
dictation aeveral days before. He took
Howard into Caleb Power'a office, which
bad been especially arranged for the
shooting, and showed him the Marlin rifle,
the bullets and the window from which the
murder was to be done. He says Howard
asked what he was to get for the abootlng.
"what do you wantT" replied witness
when Howard said he wanted a pardon for
killing George Baker.
"I told him he could have that and more.
too," said Youtaey.
"About that time," he continued, "Ooebel
came out and I pointed him out to Howard
and then ran from the room. As I disap
peared from the steps to the basement I
heard the crack of Howard's rifle."
After the shooting he passed through the
state house basement and sf few minutes
later came back Into the executive building
from the east entrance.
"I stayed In the office ot Assistant Secre
tary ot State Matthews," said he, "tor . a
few moments and' saw Matthews break open
Caleb Powers' office and find the guna that
had been left there."
At that time he was private secretary to
Auditor Sweeney, but while hia political
status waa -not definitely fixed it .was un
derstood he was to have a good place under
Taylor. ' "Governor Taylor," said Youtaey,
directed everything we did. We regarded
him as our leader, and we were morally re
sponsible for all we did. We knew we had
the' governor and the pardoning board be
hind us, and we were not afraid of punish
ment for killing Ooebel."
During 'Youtsey's testimony Howard sat
with his eyes riveted on the witness. His
wife sat behind him. Howard did not change
On cross-examination Youtaey said even
after he was arrested and sent to the peni
tentiary he still had hope of gaining his
liberty. He thought Yerkes waa defeated
however, and about a yeaf ago he decided to
tell his story to Prison Physician Tobin..
As ari additional Incentive for him to tell
the story, he claimed Taylor, Powers
and others had used him as a cat's paw
and scapegoat and (hen deserted him when j
be got into trouble.
He aald the only man who ever talked to
him about any kind of reward was James
A. Scott, now counsel for Howard. i
"This waa just before I was arrested,"
said he, "and Scott told me it I would tell
enough to bring about seven convictions he J
would get me,$35,000."
He admitted Having sent for Governor
Beckham and asking his advice. The gov
ernor told him he should tell everything,
but that he waa offered no inducement.
In cross-examination Youtsey admitted
that jte . and Johnson had planned to kill
Goebfl and that Johnson was to do the
shooting. . W... J.. Davidson, then, superin
tendent of public Instruction, offered to al
low Johnson the use of his' office .for the

WASHINGTON. April 16. President
Gotnpers of the American Federation of

Mr. Parry'a report to the Manufacturers'
association. If nays:
If there waa any doubt that Mr. Parry
had taken leave of his reason, the report,
or rather harangue, which he made to his
convention demonstrates .it beyond- any
doubt. If the manufacturers endorse Mr.
Parry'a unjustified and malicious opposition
to the workers' efforts to secure material
and moral Improvement they simply write
themselves down to his low level and stand
committed with him for all the injury
which must follow from his - rabid utter
ances, his venomous, and Igrtorant antagon
ism, which must provoke only resentment
Organised labor Is the result of our in
dustrial development and environment. It
proposes to seure a larger share of the pro
duction of wealth. It seeks to secure these
objocts by peaceful and lawful methods. It
alms to establish- more rightful relations

Organised labor seeks no such "conflict as
Mr. Parry -would promote, but neither will
It run away from one. - We desire Industrial

Mr. Parry and those who act with him to
the contrary notwithstanding.
We shall be enabled soon to discern to
what extent the manufacturers ot the

After speaking briefly of the unprece

combinations, he aald:
I cannot help concluding that the con
centration In a few hands of so large a
number of Industrial concerns mun have
n effect like ballast on a ship it must
steady the situation. This to emphasised
by the fact that certain Industries like the
iron and ateel Industry, controlled by a
comparatively few men. owning the raw
inmeriHi ana the transportation laciutiea
and producing ine manufactured article,
must b in a better nl tun tlon to restrict the
output and ndjust sut ply to demand than
when tht- rcii.Htiiieiit companies competed

In other worde. U It not a fact that the
Iron and steel Industry, the sugar ladustry

articles of necessity will be enabled by
their financial strength and able manage
ment, to adjuKt the affairs of their i r

would have you fully appreciate Just what
