BIG CROWD OUT.
Mason County Fair Opens Under
Most Favorable Auspices.
Or. Carver's Wonderful Shooting The Div

tractions. The Mnaon County fair oponeil Wed
nesday under the moat favorable au
BnipoH hnrrincr the tonid weather. But
the breezes from the river make the
grounds and grand stand about as cool a
place aB you'll And hereabouts.
The crowd in attendance was estimated
to be the largest ever present on opening
day, and the prospects are the fair will
be a record-breaker.
The display in the floral hall is one of
the most beautiful and attractive ever
exhibited at a local fair. This is espec
ially true of the fancy meedle work and
The exhibition in the poultry depart
ment far surpasses anything of the kind
ever seen at a Maysvillo fair. There are
fine specimens of chickens of most every
breed, and then there are turkeys, ducks,
geese, guineas and peafowls. Among
the exhibitors in this department are
such well known breeders as Mr. W. E.
Piles, Mr. Frank Herbert and Mr.Tillett.
In all, there are probably nearly 100
coops of'poultry on exhibition.
In the arena the directors for the day
were 'Squire Luttrell, 'fc'quiro Perrino
aud Messrs.:W. R. Gill, Charles Stroud
and Charles Rhodes. There was a good
exhibition of Jacks, JcunetB, draft, sad
dle and harness horses. Following is a
list of the premiums awarded :

The special attractions the diving
horses, elks and bicycle rider and Dr.
Carver's wonderful shooting, are all that
has been claimed for them. Dr. Carver
mot with an accident July 4th, and
yesterday was the first shooting ho has
done since then. His skill as a marks
man is wonderful. With rifle or shot-gun
he breaks wooden balls, glass balls,
oranges, apples, brick bats and any other
old thing as fast almost as they can be
thrown in the air. In the diving feats
his animals and the cyclist plunge from
a forty-foot tower into a pool, and
animals and man seem to enjoy it. His
guideless pacers gave as flue an exhibi
tion of racing as has ever been seen on the
ground. These attractions are alone
worth the price of admission.
In addition to these and other attrac
tions, tho Maysville Gun Club gives a
live bird shoot this afternoon.

DRAA1ATIC INCIDENT OF THE TRIAL.
Prowitt Denied Ills Accusation of
"Tallow Dick" Coombs Gol
den Denied StutcmciitB
aiudo by Prewltt.
Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 8. When tho
Powers murder trial was resumed Dr.
Prewltt of Taylor county continued
his testimony. On cross-examination
he denied that ho told Wharton Gold
en ho had no doubt that "Tallow
Dick" Coombs 'fired the shot that
killed Goebel and denied that he said
Coombs came Into the adjutant gen
eral's ofllco after tho shooting. He re
peated that Coombs and Hockersmlth
were In the ofllco at the time and that
neither of them could have done the
shooting. Witness also said he had
seen Golden a day or two ago and de
nounced him as a liar. As the witness
left the stand Golden was recalled and
he and Prewltt met face to face. Tho
spectators In the court room watched
closely to se how they greeted each
other. They spoke cordially and Gold
en took the stand and denied that he
had made certain statements which
Prowitt claimed ho had made and also
repeated what he claimed Prewltt told
him In regard to "Tallow Dick"
Coombs In connection with the shoot
ing. Dr. Prewltt was again recalled and
said that he was with Wharton Golden
when the latter was first Informed by
Tom Cromwell that ho might be ar
rested In connection with the assassin.
Prewltt said Golden told him a few
minutes later that they were arrang
ing to put the crime on Powers but
that the latter was Innocent.
George W. Long, state treasurer
during Bradley's regime, testified
about going to Louisville the morning
of January 30 with Caleb Powers and
others to arrange to bring some
friends from western Kentucky to be
present when the contest was argued
the latter part of tho week.
Ho said the news of tho shooting
caused them to abandon the project.
On cross-examination the prosecution
Introduced a letter which they asked
Long to identify, but ho said it had
not been written by him or signed by
him. The witness said he thought ir
had been written by his son Wendell
Long, but he had not authorized it.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
PillTY POLITICAL POINTS.
(By Robert Taylor.)
Taylor Isn't any more anxious to stay in Indi
ana than bis party Is to have him stay.
The failure of tho Republicans to put Taylor
up as a candidate for Governor emphasized their
opinion of him and his methods.
With his own party arrayed against him, as
was plainly shown by them not nominating him
for Governor, It's small wonder that Taylor re
mains In Indiana.
Thero could be but ono reason why tho Repub
licans took up another man in pr'ferouco to
Taylor after proclaiming tho tatter's election In
every possible way, ana that Is that they recog-
Fiankfort aud for the consequent damage to
their causo. I
