Caused Powers to bo Sentenced to
life Imprisonment,
{Tom Campbell and Golden in the Conspiracy
to Secure False Evidence.
. Story Told in Detail.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 30.?Tlu
Louisville Evening Post to-day prints
an alliciavu ot jrmiey Anderson, a telegraph
operator upon whose testimony
Caleb Powers was convicted of complicity
In the murder of Governor Goebel,
In which Anderson swoars his story
told on the stand at Georgetown, was
perjured. After telling of a conversation
with Attorney Campbell at Cincinnati
In connection with the Goebel
case, he says:
"I remained in Cincinnati after this
conversation with Campbell, and some
time after that Arthur. Goebel, In his
store on tho fourth floor, where I had
gone at his request, aBked me If Powers
had not In my presence, at Barbourvllle,
In January, said to me in
substance these words, referring to
"William Goebel, 'they say he wears a
coat of mall, but It won't do him any
good,' or something to that effcct. I
told Goebel that Powers had never said
anything of that sort In my presence
to the best of my knowledge.
Could Mot Bemember.
"He told me to think and see If I
could not remember 1L I could not remember
such a remark, and I know |
that Powers never did make such a remark,
or anything resembling It, In my j
presence; but being urged by Arthur j
Goebel, I finally concluded to state that I
he did make such a statement and so I
_j3woro upon the trial, which testimony
was false. , j
"Before making my statement to
Campbell, Wharton Golden told us to j
make it as strong as possible, as they j
(referring to Campbell and Goebel),
would take care of me and protect me. J
"I have, since such conversation with
: Campbell and Arthur Goebel received I
Ifrom Arthur Goebel various sums aggregating
about 5300, and upon one occasion
$10 from Justus Goebo). Tho last
sum I received was on Tuesday, Octo- j
ber 23, 1900, which was $5 given to me ;
by Colonel Campbell at his office in
9 Cincinnati."
Tells of Meeting Campbell.
Anderson tells of meeting Attorney
Campbell in Cincinnati, and continues
in his affidavit:
"Colonel Campbell then told me that
Joe Owens had told him that I had said
that Caleb Powers at the hotel in Bar-!
boursville, prior to the 2.1th of January,
had used these words, speaking
ui. ttiiiium uuuul"i> x^. we cunuui
lilm killed and It is necessary, I will
kill him myself.' 1 said to Mr. Campbell
that I had never told anyone any
such thing and that Powers had not,
made such a statement to me or any
statement resembling It in any way.
, Campbell and Owens insisted I had
i made such a statement, and I after- ;
ward, upon Campbell's suggestion, sat
' down and wrote out a statement, in
which I included the foregoing stateI
ment of Powers, which was untrue in
I every particular and upon the trial of
Caleb Powers I swore to it as a fact,
when In truth It was not a fact."

ROCHESTER. N. Y.. Oct. 30.?When
i the Roosevelt train arrived here .to1
night the party found great' crowds,
? both at the depot and the two halls,
and a splendid greeting was accorded
the vice presidential candidate. There
was an Immenso parade of clubs and
business men's associations, and both
auditoriums where Governor Roosevelt
r spoke were filled to overflowing.
Besides an enthusiastic gathering at
Corning, the home of the club that was
I assaulted at Elmlra last night, the only
Incident of the day occurred at Geneva,
where there was an attempt made
to prevent the governor from speaking.
Judging from the applause at Geneva,

! The utterances ascribed to ex-P
referred to embodied an expression
Mr. Bryan the morning after the
Mr. Cleveland was quoted as na
favor of the Democratic candidate, a
and as an efficient campaigner.
j there were a number on the outskirts
t of the crowd, especially in the windows
of some buildings opposite the stand,
who, assisted by the usual crowd of
small boys, did what they could to Interrupt
him. The only cry that was in
telllglble from the stand was "Hurrah
for Bryan!"
First xnterruption.
"Gentlemen," said the governor, "I
- appeal to you for the honor of that
- Hag," Indicating a large American flag
. which was on the stand, but he was
Interrupted by renewed shouts of "Hur
rah for Bryan!"
- "Gentlemen," said the governor, "I
: want you to reflect what a poor showing
you make when you try to Interrupt
an appeal to the flag."
1 Thin remark caused the noise to dl
mlnlsh somewhat, but It was continued
until the governor finished his remarks.

In other places, were boys, but those

At Canandalgua, where a good sized
crowd had gathered despite the fact
that It was raining hard and the train
was about an hour late, the governor
' addressed himself on the subject of
< prosperity and on the trust auction. He
sold: .
"Prosperity, like this rain, falls on
the Just and unjust. It Is falling here
i on the Just Just at this moment, but
still It is fnlllng on the unjust, as Mr.
Bryan Is making a tour of the state

NEW YORK, Oct. 30.-EXecutlvc
Chairman James K. McQulre, of the
Democratic state committee, gave out
to-night the first estimate from the
Democratic state committee on how the
state would go. He said: "Our canvass
of the state gives Bryan CO,000 ma

will not come to the Bronx
with more than 70,000 majority. I have
refrained from making any statements
heretofore until our canvass was completed.
This estimate on our canvass
Is a very conservative one."
Is Alvord?Bitter Scrap Betweon
State and United States Officials as
to Jurisdiction in His Case.
NEW YORK, Oct. 30.?Corneltus L.
Alvord, Jr., the embezzling note teller
of the First National Bunk, who was
arrested yesterday In Boston, was arraigned
In police court here to-day and
remanded to police headquarters till 3
o'clock this afternoon, In order to give
the legal authorities time to decide
whether he shall be tried before the
United States or state courts. Alvord
was accompanied by his counsel.
A conference had been arranged between
United States District Attorney
Burnett and Asa Bird Gardiner, District
Attorney of New York county, to

truth. I have never uttered a word

resident Cleveland in the publication
that there would be a landslide for

When Alvord was re-arralgned In police
court this afternoon. Fisher A. Baker;
counsel for the First ' 'National.
Bank, said that he had secured- a warrant
from the United States district
court for Alvord's arrest under the
laws regulating embezzlement and
making false entries. He said he would
much prefer that the prisoner go bo.
fore the United States courts for trial.
This was opposed by District Attorney
Gardiner. Alvord's attorney apparently
took little interest In this part or
the proceedings. After some discussion
the whole matter went over until
to-morrow. Alvord was committed to
the Tombs. It appears probable that
there may be a long contest as to Juris
diction, District Attorney Gardiner
apparently being determined that the
prisoner shall bo tried in a state court.

PITTSBURGH, Pa., Oct. 30.?A rrtory

this product at their Duquesne
works. It is said that steel

President Schwab. Mr. Schwab tonight
declined to discuss the matter
and Bald he would neither confirm nor
deny the story.
If (he Carnegie company should go
Into the sheet buBlness It will come Into
competition with the sheet combine,

The first rescuing party went down

two men in the party had to be carried

hand and as fast as the injured were
brought to the surface their wounds
were dressed and they were ?ent to
the hospital or their homes.
The force of the explosion was so
great that it blew down a grcat section

that there were a number of men back
of the fall, but at D o'clock to-n'Ght the
mine ofllclals were of the opinion that
all of the men had been taken ou^? The
accident was due to an empl?ye who
diverted the air course unwittingly, and
allowed the gas to accumulate In the
place where the men were at work. The
latter had been warned ih tiine vacate
the place, but they did not think
they were in danger and went ?n with
their work. The explosion soon followed.
