and Finley fled to Indiana the Gov
ernor of that State declined to grant
a " requisition for their return, and
succeeding Governors followed his ex

remarkable murder cases in the his

a Democrat, was assassinated yin front

were indicted on a ) charge of com
plicity in the murder. They both fled
across the Ohio River into Indiana.
Caleb Powers, then Assistant Secre
tary of State, was arrested and
charged directly with the murder. He
was convicted twice for first degree
murder, but Governor Wiilson par
doned him. He is now on a lecturing
tour through the country.
Requisitions for Taylor and Finley
by three Democratic Governors of
Kentucky were refused by three Re
publican executives in Indiana. When
Governor Wiilson, who is a Jtepubli-
can, was elected it was forecast that
ah end would be put to the whole
case.. One pi, his first acts was the
pardoning of Caleb Powers.
