A GUY HIlUK. UETS
Kentucky's Governor Speaks
Against the Action of
irankfort, Ky., Nov. 12-Gov
ernor Beckham last night ad
dressed to Governor Durbin of
Indiana a letter replying to the
criticisms by that executive of
the courts and officials of Ken
tucky in his recent letter refus
ing to honor the requisition for
Taylor and Finley, wanted for
alleged complicity in the assass
ination of Governor Goebel.
He severely arraigned Durbin
for his refusal, charging that in
doing so he violated his oath of
office to support the constitution
of the United States and thathe
became "a party after the fact to
the most infamous crime in the
; history of this State, the cold
blooded and dastardly murder or
- an emient and distinguished citi
zen of Kentucky."
The Kentucky executiue also
charges that Governor Durbin's
action in refusing was the result
of a political bargain made before
his election of offtice and charac
terizes his charge against the
courts and officials of Kentucky
as slanderous and inexcusable
He takes the stand that a gov
ernor of a State has no discre
tionary power but only minister
ial power in the honoring of
legally drawn requistions from
other States and this is taken
1 here as an indication ,that steps
will shortly betaken in thecourts
to compel Durbin by mandamus
e to honor the requisitions. If
t such proceedings are instituted
n they will be in the courts of Indi
, ana and taken on appeal to the
I sugreme court.

S. A. Spencer was elected chair
man of the meeting and stated
Mr. Spencer stated that he
thought puplic ownership pre
ferable, and is of the opinion that
a good system can be put in for
$50,000. The money can be
raised by issuing bonds, and a
tax of 2+- mills will carry the
A gentlemen present stated
that Napoleoihville's system was
good. His firm was employed to
draft plans for the system. Na
poleonville voted on the proposi
tion which they understood and
are getting a better system than
they expected. They have a
plug every 400 feet, with 7500
feet of pipe and 16 plugs. He
thinks Jennings can install a
first class plant with 3 miles of
main and all necessary latterals
and equipments. A low rate
would give a dividend to apply on
a water tax. An 8 inch pipe is
not probably needed throughout.
Boehm Bros. submitted a
proposition to furnish a system.
It was moved by S. L. Cary,
seconded by G. A. Courtney that
the chairman appoint a commit
tee of five to consult in regard to

pointed S. L. Cary, C. S. Morse
and J. F. Wellington to wait on
