ton, who was a e'rrk in the office of Au
ditor Swecncj-. created a sensation this aft
ernoon, directly after he. Seiretary of S'jt

to the murder of William Goebrl. lv
sending for the attorn'V' 'f the Common

The Jay was full of dev lopments In the
case. Powers attempted to go free on a

The plot is said !o have been hatccel at
Ks house, but the extent of the charge
asaint Davis was not developed, as he
waived a hearing. Cniton was moved to
waive cMimlnaiion after seeing the "treisth
of the cae against Powers. Powers I- in
Judge Moore. In hi" decision to boll
Towers without bail, said:
"It is not my belief that Towers filed
the shot which killed Oovrrnor Oneled.
but, from the evidence, it I my opinion
that he was connected with the conspiracy
to kill hira. 1 shall therefore order that
he be held over without bail to the Frank
lin County Grand Jury, that the case may
be further invest 'gated."
Culton had Irecn pel mitt- d to remain tin
der tho guard of the Sheriff at his wire's
bedside, owing to her serious illness. This
afternoon about 4 o'clock he went to th
Capltal Hole, to the room of Colonel T. C.
Campbell, where he made his- confession in
the presence of Commonwealth Attorncy

Arthur Gocbel and Attorney K. F. Hogs of

The confession was brought about through

Culton clear of the trouble. The prisoner
made a clean breast of the conspiracy and
laid bare every detail. Golden was cor

more facts were brought out. The inlrr

the fatal shot, will bo arrested. The namo

The prosecution now say that convic
tions are as certain to be secured as that
;ho sun will rise again.
While the detail or the confeion and
other information gathered through the ar
rest of Youtsey are being guarded, pend
ing further arrest?, yet an outline or tne
story was secured by your correspondent.
Cclton's story is as follows:
The mountain men were brought to
Frankfort by direction from the rowers
brothers, Charles Finley, Culton and others.
They were to be "regular mountain fcud
its." as Golden related. After arriving here
they were to have started a riot in tho
legislative halls and kill enough Democrats
to make a Republican majority.
But the plan was abandoned, and It was
decided by Powers and others, Culton says,
to have Senator Goebei shot from the omca
of the Secretary of State. Youtsey was
given the key, which Is admitted by Ms
friends. It was to the door that op. ns
into the hall a few steos from the door
that leads from the inside of the building'
down into the basement. Tho key was
not to the door opening into the ou'er
oRlce of the Secretary of State.
Youtsey had several smokeless powCer
t-tcel bullet cartridges, which several people
saw. It Is said that he bought them in
"ulton fas that the man who fired the
vhot was placed In the Secretary of State's
private office. Powers having gone to I.ouis
ille in order not to be present.
Powers and the AnIn.
Goebei was to have been killed on Men
day, on which day. It will be remembered.
Golden said that Powers had arranged to
go to Louisvillo and take him along. He
changed his plans, as tho man who was to
tire the shot did not arrive here In time.
Culton says that Caleb Powers nvet the
man in London on the Sunday preceding
the assassination, and the Catchlngs Hotel
register shows that he and one of the men
directly concerned in the shooting were reg
The rest of Culton's confession Is with
held at rrcsent. but, according- to the pros
ecution, every link In Its chain of evidence
A prominent Republican lawyer in the
case to-day told a prominent Democrat
that there would be no trouble about Tay
lor vacating the Kxecutlve building, in Cie
event of an unfavorable decision from the
Court of Appeals, if the Republicans could
feel assured that Taylor would not be ar
rested. That assurance will not be given,
as something may develop which may war
rant the arrest of Taylor In connection
with the conspiracy.
Culton is underwood to have yielded to
the conspiracy. After he wns arrested and
HI. and ho put his confession in writ
ing, giving all details of bis connection
with the importing of mountaineers, and
the events leading up to the murder. His
wife Is said to liavo been opposed to the
conspiracy and to have warned Senator
Goebei of it.
II. K. Yontuey Arreted.
Another development of the day was the
arrest of H. E. Youtsey of Newport, v. ha
was a stenographer in the office of Auditor
Sweeney, lie is the man to whom Powers
gave the key to his office. Youtsey had been
under suspicion for several days and repeat
ed efforts had been made to force hira to

coming a State's witness, but he refused
to betray any knowledge he mbjht bate of

The t-o.rimonwralth insist? that G..l!rn
to.d tho truth, but that ho h.vt not et
toid ait. In fat. it is hWI-ved that Golden
was irepr In the plot ti-an h lias jet
admitted, as developments may show. The
commonwealth says that Tajlor had nrom-
, i-ed him the position of As-i-tanl Adjutant
t.eneral at . a year if he tould W kept
in oiheo. and this was a fortune for a
mountaineer. In his confession. Golden,
according to the Stat- Attorn-y. told far
more of th- piot than l.a ben brought
out. but he does not know t!.. name of th.
:isv3tin. Golden was led to llieve that
the two n gro.. CoihIm and Tlocker-mUh.
had I)en selected for that purpose. From
the State's standpoint, ii seems thero were
secrets even among the ronpirator?, and
Golden did not know that a white man
from a neighboring count to him Iiad been
told c:T for the purpose of killing Goebei.
This, according to the commonwealth, was
after the plan to start a riot in the legis
lature wa , hanged, that Idea l-eing aban
doned because of the danger that Hep-.b-lican
members would aIo be killed in a.

stories of the good treatment of the pris

tho subordinates sometimes subjected the

Mr. Cox saw Secretary Rcltz, and says
ho evidently Is worried at the turn of

Russia demands upon Turkey for exrlu
slvo rights to build railways, In the north
ern part of Asia Minor have leen looked
upon as indicating a possibility In the not
distant futuro of the partition of the Otto
man Empire. England's hands are engaged
elsewhere, and the "Sick Mnn" Is not 11k'
ly to find any other friend among; tho
Powers of Europe.
Germany, whoso recent progress in Asia
Minor might be regarded as imperiled by
Russia's present demand', has preserved
a passivo and disinterested attitude during
tho whole course of the negotiations, which
are now npparently coming to a climax.
It was. In fact, an ultimatum that the
Russian Government presented to the Sub
lime Porte a fortnight or so ago. A halt
ing statement was Issued from Yildiz
Kiosk with the object of gaining time, but
ilussia is apparently not to bo held off.
What Russia presses for. and what she
evidently intends to get. Is an understand
ing that no railway concessions shall bt
given to others notth of the German trunk
line without her consent.
This Is described as "compensation" for
the right granted to Germany to build the
German line, but it is compensation of an
offer very onerous and very humiliating to
the Sultan. Germany at least offers him
valuable consideration for the privileges sha
has obtained. She will make a great trunk
railway through tho heart of Asiatic Tur
key; and the country, and, indirectly. Ha
sovereign, must be benefited by the under
taking. Rut Russia ofTcrs no material considera
tion at nil. The Inducements, she holds out
to the Sultan arc of a different kind alto
gether. Sho gives him to understand, in
terms not too derinlte to bo evaded here
after, should evasion prove desirable, that
if be is complaisant she will not harass him
just at present about his financial obliga
tions to her as the result of the iTurko
Count Muravli-rf recently authoritatively
Inform' d the Turkish Ambassador lit St.
Petersburg that the Russian demands can
not be modified In any way.
Over and above the demand for an ex
clusive railway concession is tho claim that
Russia shall be authorized to garrison the

Little wondr that tho Sultan exercised
all the arts of diplomacy, suggested expe
dients and proiosed plans which. If they
served no other purpo". should stave off
tho day when it would b necessary lo an
swer yes or no to a question which involved
the spoliation of a part of his dominions.
This move of Russia In Asia Minor ap
pears to be only a part or the Russian
policy. The news from the Far East that a
Russian squadron has appeared olf the
coast of Korea nnm be disquieting in Eng
land, as well as In Japan, for It Indicates
that Russia is taking advantage or Eng
land's preoccupation to push her projects
wherever possible. What Ihe result of theo
maneuvers wi'.l be Is not now apparent, al
though signs are not wanting that Great
Britain Is conversant with the Russian de
Elsns. and is preparing for a surprise.
