WILLIAM GOEBEL '
. I (Continued from First Page.)
Senator Goebel Is a type of manhood pe
culiar to himself. The study of his pro?
fesslon was an apparent inborn. desire,
and "with this his only lncentlve society
ethics were disdaihed. He modeled a
world ln nrlnlature, with himself as the
only inhahitant. ?
While obscured from the soclal thfong,
Senator Goebel was Invariably accesslble
to the poor and lowly, or to those unfor
tunate, without money and needlng ad
vicc Facts were stated, and advice of?
fered, and never was the subject of fee
or reward introduced until the case was
finally cnded. Then the client. lf suc
cessful, was allowed to name his own
price, llkewise the time for payment best
adequate to his own purpose and purse.
ln the legal profession Senator Goebel
had a few superiors, and his assoclates
at the bar realized this. Whenever cases
involving great issues were at stake Sena?
tor Goebel's serices were in demand, and
every member of the bar felt that he was

Senator Gotibel is recorded as collecting
thc largest fee ever paid to an attorney In
Kenton or Campbell county, when he #on

company amounting to $150,000. one-third

Goebel as his fee.
EOVBD BY THOSE WHO KNEW HIM.
While averse to mixing or mingling with
the world in general, giving rise to reports
of a cold. sordid disposltion, those know
ing well the qualities of the Senator know
positively the reverse, and that beneatfh
the exterior of his bosom heat one of the
warmest hcarts that ever throtobed- in
His devotion to friends was provcrbial,
and never did he turn down an old for a
new one. Bold and courageous, without
fear of man or fate, yet withal as gentle
and lovable in demeanor as the mildest
mannered woman, he drew about him
friends tha-t fairly worshlpped him.
While ciharged with all the crimes in
the category. never once was he proved
gnilty. a fact attosted when he ran for
oflice. for then Ihe bitterest partisan, the
most rampant accuser, faced about and
east his vote for Goebel. While not a
ehurch member or noted for piety, he
was loved .and admired by priest and
preacher alike. Ostentation he disowned.

The Death or Mr. Goobel Hcarrt cf
WASinNGTON, Feb. 3.?Without re?
gard to party the death of William Goe?
bel is universaliy deplored here. His
game struggle for life, after the assassin's
bullet laid him low, has been watched
with admiration and when the bulletins
wero posied to-night, announcing his
death, political friends and focs united
in expressions of regret.
President MeKinley was informed of
the death of Mr. Gocbel at dinner given
to-night in honor of himself and the
members of the Cabinet by Postmaster
General Charies Emory Smith.
Tho news was conveyed to" him after
t'ne guests had risen from the table and
retired to the smoking room.
Shortly af terward the President re?
turned to the White House.
Bate to-night a member of tlie Cabinet
said to a representatlve of the Assocated
Press: "When the news of 'Mr. Goebel's
death was announced to President -'Me?
Kinley, and to those of us who were
present. no surprise was expressed, as
it had been expected. The Kentucky sit?
uation was not discussed, but you may
say tliat the President and' members of
the Cabinet believe that the death of
Mr. Goebel will not have the effect of al
tering the situation in the least, as far
as the legal aspect is concerned."
The members of the Kentucky delega?

WEEESTON, O., Feb. 3.?On a late

a stranger, who said he was in Frank?

"My name is Itodman," he said. "I
know all about the shooting of Goebel. I
can tell you plainly that our people are
aawy off if they think that Taylor or tho
Itcpublioan party had anytliing to do with

awaited to kill Goebel for his killing of
John Sandford and the party who lired the
shot wa.s a near friend and Intimately

BBRLBN, Feb. 3.?Dr. Leyds, diplomatlc
agent of tlie Transvaal, continues to be
tho scnsation here. The officers of the
British eanbassy aro amaaed at the
warinith of his reception and thc interest
taken in tlie war, which ls most Jntense.
Dr. Leyds. the correspondent is reliably
informed, had another long conferenco
with Count von Bueiow, the Minister. of
Foreign Affairs, yesterday at the foreign
office. Dr. 'Leyds refused to make any
statement on the subject.
It is said that the Transvaal special
commerclal reprc^entative. Dcsvaard, .who
is now in Holland, has been summoned to
Berlin, where he will give authenuc.in?
formation about a number of commercial
details touching upon the Transvaa1 rm
ports and -exports. From a good source it
is learni.vl tliat a number of leading Ger
man industrials in machinery and otlher
branches, met at the foreign office during
the week and recoived inside information
about the subject above indicated.
The Oermari government beluvc- that
no matter wliich way the war is Ilnally
decided. tilicre will be a splendid fiold for
German exports to the Boers, and steps
accordingly were taken.
PRESS MORE MODERATE.
German press comment during the
week was much more moderate. There
was a remarkable edltorial to-day in the
Vorwaerts headed "England. at the Turn
of tho Road," saying England's prestige
thus far has not suffered by defeat;
but the paper advises English labonng
people to insist on the rapid conclusion
of - peace, as their interests, above aJl,
would suffer from a longer war.
Tho Magddburg Zeitung publishes a
letter from Commandant Albrecht, the
Orange Freo State artillery chief. dated
Kronstaadt. December 17th. He says
President Kruger is an unimpeachablo
chafacter and tho grandest of patriots.
The commandant adds:
"Tlie artillery hitherto has proved or
little avail on both sides. ln spite ot
tho fact that the Boers' guns are bet
ter than those of the English and that
the Boers aim better than the English.
The battlcs of Magersfontein and Coien
so were decided by the rifle and not
General Albrecht ridicules the lyddite
bombs, which, he says, caused no dam
age. Ho concludes with saying that judg
ing from the present war. the losses
through the most modern wcapons are no
greater than hefore. but rather smaller.
The news from Egypt of mutiny among
the Egyptian troops, at Khartoum, ls re
garded here gravely. especially as privata
dlspatches confirm the retorbs previously
received. In circles close to the govern?
ment it is considered that a spread of mu?
tiny and an uprising like Araibl Bey's, Is
within the ipossibilities.
Here it Is also believed that in such a
case France would be sure to actively
intermeddle, probably backed up by
Russia. , :,??
The United States Embussy is gratined
at the fact that for months there has
been a perfect lull in the complaints
about German official seizures and vexa
tious delavs of American meats and fruit.
Excepting" a few trifling cases, <nothing
hus been heard of that descnptlon. and
the Embassv has not been requested for
