Leaders in Callahan Case
Make Complete Confession
Elisha, Govan and Dock Smith
Tell All About Conspiracy.
Quite a little excitement was
caused in Winchester Sunday night
when it became known that the
three Smith brothers, Elisha,
Govan and Dock, had confessed
and given the entire details of the
conspiracy to murder Ed. Calla
han. The ttiree men who are
jointly indicted with twelve other
men on the charge of forming a
conspiracy to murder ex-Sheriff
Ed. Callahan of Breathitt county
were taken before the proper au
thorities and there all made their
statements. They implicated sev
eral men and should the confes
sions stand it means a very telling
blow against the men now under
indictment on perjury charges
as well as against the remaining
twelve men who are charged with
being in the conspiracy, it is i
understood that the confessions
were made without any promises
of any kind on the part of the
authorities. Court is in session at
Jackson and it is probable that the
men will be taken before the
grand jury there if they have im
plicated men not now under
