Calob Powers wa released from
the Goorgotown jail at 10 o'clock and
immediately wont to the hotol. according
to word roceived here from
Georgetown, Ky., June 13. Calob
Powors.when notified this morning
of his pardon by the governor
"If I had between twelve and
liftoon thousand dollars, the amount
it takes to properly present my defense
in oue of these trials and in
addition to that had had the strength
and health to endure the strain of
another one, or if the jud.gc in my
case had granted me bail when wo ap
plied for it at the conclusion of my
last trial, I would never had made
application for a pardon but would
have attempted again-to have secured
my freedom at the hands of a jury,
notwithstanding the recent difficulties
in the way of a fair hearing in my
oase. But the decision of Gevornor
Willson io the etlect that I am entitled
to my liberty after his long
and painstaking examination of the
records in all the GoeDel trials, with
his trained and discriminating mind
as. a lawyer, I think is as much a
vindication of my good name as
though my liberty had come thru the
dicision of the average jury, especially
in view of the fact that ten of my
jury voted for my acquittal with
another one of them willing to do o.
"When asked what he intended doing
aud what his plans for the future
were Mr. Powers said. "I am
ing home to my poor old mother and
will reman there a few weeks at leats
and if my health docs not improve
in that time as I think it should, I
will go to Battle Creek, Mich., to
When asked what he intended to
engage in he said, 'if my health is
sufficiently recovered to do it, by the
first of September, I will again
the practice of law in my home
town, Barbourville, Ky., unless
aomcthing much better than that
presents itself between now and that
time." Asked if he meant to re-enter
politics, ho said "don't mention
politics to me." In expression of
gratitude to his numerous friends
throughout the country, he said they '
have really won the fight for me. Ij
could never have continued the fight
these many years but for their generous
aid and support.
GOV WIIL'SON HIVES HE
Frankfort, Ky., Juno 1.. Gov.
Willson gave out the following reason
for pardoning Calob Powers and
James B. Howard:
Application has been made to the
governor for the pardon of ,Caleb
Powers, who stands charged by indictment
found in the Franklin circuit
court, and aftorward transferred
on charge of vonue to the Scott circuit
court with the crime of "being
accessory boforo the fact to the
willful murdor of William Goebol."
The application is supported by petitions
roccommonding the pardon of
the accused, signed by noarly 500.-000
persons, some 240,000
and a large proportion aro
It is not likely that at any time
during my term of office I shall be
called upon to decide matters of
graver importance than presented
by the applications for pardon
of Caleb Powers and Jamos B.
Howard, I have given to their consideration
the most oaroful conscientious
aid thorough investigation and
thought in my power. I realize
that, whatever my decision may be,
it will be harshly eritieised. For
more thn eight years this trroup of
cases ha held the attention of the
whole state, and, indeed, of the
whole country, as do cases ia this
state ever did before.
The murder of Senator Goebel destroyed
a remarkable, life, brought
the deepest irriof to his family and
thousands of friends who loved him,
overthrew a whole stato election, destroyed
the peace and good feeling
ot the state lor eight yoars, set
neighbor against neighbor, made
politics almost war, stained the good
name of Kentucky arid shockod the
civilized world. There was and is
no shadow of excuse or pallitation
for this base crime. There can be
no mercy for any one guilty of tin
murder or of aiding or abetting it,
but the more grave crime, the more
serious, is the responsibility of de
ciding the question of guilt and the
more imperative duty of guarding
against injustice and wrong imposed
under the pressure of public excitement,
passion or prejudice.
The sympathy which makes all the
world akin, of every good man and
woman, is with the brothers, kinsmen
and friends of the viciom of the
L have not heard nor considered,
but have refused to consider, any
private or secret request of appeal in
either of these cases, and have, without
exception, required that all of
the preceedings should be heard publicly
in the presence of representa
tives of both sides, so that all should
now everything to which any
weight was given for or against the
applications and that all the world
should have a . chance to judge
whether the reason for the decision
were just and righteous.
