The Democrats who are in the
revenue service are finding
that there are more wajT of
killing a dog than the traditional
one of choking him on
butter. Of course, there
will be -no violations of the
civil service laws, but there
will be found many ways of
dispensing with the services
of Democrats and substituting
Republicans. In this
count' three Republicans go
on duty this morning Ben
Selby, Jas. Spillman and C.
A. Kenny. These are among
the luck' ones who were commissioned
several years ago
when there was a rush in the
"auing business, and these
commissions have never been
revoked. Then there are
man' old soldiers who will be
re-instated, and a place must
be made for them. So, in
one way and another, Republicans
will radually get control
of t le offices.

by Sennatluiuil l'crjiiry by tjoniu Ouo.
FitAKKoRT, Ky., Sept. IS. The second
day of the tr.al against Hunter et
al. was characteri.ed by .sensational
perjury by .some tine Or. W. Uodfrev
Hunter, .I. II Wilaon.
and Deputy Collector K. T. Franks on
the one side, anil C'apU Kojl (iaines
and Thos. F Tanner on the 'Other
bide, looked each other in the
face and swore to direclly
contradictory statements about,
which none of them could
be mistaken. Hunter swore that he
was never at Gaines" houss in his life,
and did not know where he lived.
Gaines a moment later took the stand,
looked ;tt Dr. Hunler.and .said he knew
he was at his house on the night of
April I, and asked him if he coald buy
the votes of Representatives Cossom,
Clark and Johns. Hunter is corroborated
by legislators and
friends, who said ho could
not have been away from tlt3 hotel on
that night long enough to have gone
where Gaines swear; hi was. Gaines
is corroborated by witnesses who testify
to having s;cn him on the road, and
by Tanner, who says he piloted him
there. Wilson and Franks' stories
about the negotiations between themselves
and Gaines were quite as direct-
ly contradicted by Gaines and Tanner, j
Constant fear of a collision between I
the warring defendants and their
friends exists. There are several- more;
witnesses for both sjU of defendants
to the conspirajy to bribe indictment,
and the trial can hardly be concluded
Saturday. Every one on the seene predicts
a 'hung'' jury. The Hunter
people, who want an immediate
verdict and vindication, because of his
ambition at Washington dread a disagreed
jury nearly as much as conviction.
The Hunter defendants have so
far failed to prove their charge that
Gov. l.radley was in the conspiracj to
indict Dr. nunter, though they do
prove that the governor was bitterly
opposing Hunter's election as senator
at the time.

HUNTER ON TRIAL.
Tro. Tanner, Ono of the Ilofendantu,
and Goe on the Witness stand.
Fhankfout, Ky.. Sept 17. The first
day's trial of T)r. W. Godfrey Hunter
and various other defendants under
joint indictment for the alleged conspiring
together in on attempt to
bribe three legislators for S5.000 each
tovi.te for Hunter in the recent famous
sena rial race, was as sensatiotial as
the most curious of a host of spectators
could have hoped. The verdict of the
public, so far as Dr. Hunter is concerned,
has all along seemed to
turn on the question of whether Hunter
was on the night of April 1 at the
home of Noel Gaines, one of the de
fendants, and the man who says he was
trying to trap Hunter and his republican
plan to elect a senator. Other
defendants have confessed that they
were at Gaines' house and went as
friends of Hunter to sec what was in
the Gaines stories about Hunter's
chances to get some democratic votes
but Hunter himself has always bitterly
denied, and still denies and will
swear that he was never in Gaines' house
or even knew the man. Thomas Tanner,
a brother-in-law of Gaines and one
of the defendants, was dismissed on
motion of prosecution, and went on
witness stand Thursday afternoon, and
told in Hunter's presence and with minutest
detail how. on request of Hunter,
he piloted the latter to Gaines'
house and heard part of their conversation.
Gaines and his wife have before
the grand jnry told the
same story and Tanner's testimony
Thursday afternoon received the corroboration
of circumstantial evidence
given by a half dozen witnesses, while

John II. Wilson afterward went to

THE HUNTER CASE.
A Jury Secured and the trial Goes On-Many
FitANicroirr, Ky., Sept. 17. Both
sides announced themselves ready
Thursday morning in the circuit court
in the case of the commonwealth vs
W. Godfrey Hunter and four defendants
indicted for conspiracy to attempt
to bribe legislature members. Half
the prominent men of the state were
present as spectators, witnesses or defendants.
The prosecution refused to
consent to separate trials of Tanner
and Gaines, two of the defendants who
charge that Hunter, Wilson and Franks
tried to use them in their conspiracy,
but the prosecution asked the dismissal
of Tanner, who will be made a
prosecuting witness. A long struggle
developed over the selection of jurors,
because the antagonism between de
fendant Gaines and the other three
who charge him with being their real
prosecutor. The jury was at last completed
and charged by the judge and
court adjourned till 2 o'clock Thursday
