EHLER SAYS HE CAN SAVE POWERS CLAIMS HE KNOWS SLAYER OF GOEBEL Man Who Is Now In Bakertfleld, Suf fering From Severe Wound, Talks of Famous Mur der Case By Assoilntrd Press. 11AKKUHKIKLD, Deo. 22.— Chnrlen R Enter, on a cot In the county hospital, suffering from a wound presumably BelMnfllCtet), admitted to the superin tendent, Frans lluckreu*. that he has Information as to thu killing of Oov. (incbel of Kentucky, which, If It were adduced on the witness stand, would clear Caleb Powers, former secretary <>f state and now under sentence of (loath for complicity In the rnutder of tho late governor. A few days tines Powers wrote from the Ulupgi'iiMS stute to Khler in 13a knsnt'ld, saying In substance: "1 see liy n press dispatch that you mny bo nn Important wltnem In thi* Goebel murder case. For six years 1 havo lain in prison and three Union 1 have been sentenced tn death for a crime of which I am as Innocent iib the angels nround the throne, if you have any Infnriiuitlnn thnt will throw light on the death of Goebel, then for God* sake declare yourself and aid in prov« hue my innocence." Ehler, on receiving tills letter, permit ted Superintendent Buckreus to read it and Hie latter, recognizing Its im portance, questioned Ehler closely, Whereupon the latter admitted that he could Klvu testimony that would save the life of Powers and ho Intimated that if the former secretary's execution were Imminent he would give such tes timony. When Mr. Huekrpus had read the pleading letter of the condemned ofn cinl he said: "Do you know anything that would clear this man of the charge of mur der?" And Ehler, who is weakened with pain, after a moment's study, bowed his head. "Then," Fald the superintendent, "In God's name why don't you declare yourself?" "Because It would Implicate others," Khler replied. "But you would not. see an Innocent man executed?" said the official indig nantly. Ehler . reflected for a moment ana said: "Well, Caleb Powers is not executed yet." And thereupon he closed his eyes. He refused to say more. Powers has been notified of the ad missions of th» man now in the hospi tal and whether any steps will be taken by the Kentucky authorities is not known. It was shortly after midnight in the morning of the 7th of December last that Ehler wus mysteriously shot In front of the Southern hotel. He passed out of the corridor of the hotel and a few minutes later a shot was fired, the bullet striking Ehler in the breast. No assailant was in sight when help came nor was any weapon to be seen on the sidewalk and none was found on Uhler's person. The shooting re mained a mystery, though it is suspect ed now that Ehler shot himself. Cer tain it is that he was shot with his own pistol, though the whereabouts of the weapon is not known. He, claimed that his assailant seized the weapon and turned it upon him. Former Senator E. J. EmmOns was present on the ground almost, imme diately after the shooting and cared for the wounded man during the night. He professed to have known Ehler for twenty years, but It is learned that his acquaintanceship was of but short duration. Eramons is now in the Sac ramento jail, where he surrendered himself", he being under sentence to serve five years in the state prison for bribery. Ehler is a tull and fine appearing man of powerful build. Before the shooting- he was employed by Redlick'H department store as advertisement writer and was very clever In his work. He was well liked and bore v good reputation. A rumor of his connection with tho Goebel ceee gained circula tion over a week ago, but until the present disclosures no fades were as certained to substantiate the rumor. Powers Wrote to Ehler By Associated Press. CINCINNATI, Dec. 22.— When ser-n In jail at Newport, Ky., tonight, Caleb Powers admitted that he wrote to Eh ler, and declared that he was entirely innocent of the charge. Powers wild: "I do not know Ehler and never heard of him until his name appeared In the newspapers as betng an eye witness to the murder of Gov. Goebel. I have investigated every clew concerning the murder and it is today as much of a mystery to mo us It is to the outside world.'.'

BURLINGTON, Vt., Dec. 22.—Super stition resulting from the death of -a young French girl at a railroad cross- Ing at Lakeside Park has caused the board of railroad commissioners to call a meeting to consider the advisability of recommending a change In the crossing. ; Josephine Ladue was killed by an express train at this crossing three years ago.

Just as the engine reached the crossing the headlight v.as extinguished and the trainmen declared triey saw the ghost of the girl. When Mahoney resumed his run the headlight on the engine was extinguished at the same place and he declared he saw the ghost, Mahoney frequently declared that he would soon meet his death in that lo cality and never entered hls'cab with out entering a prayer for a safe trip, A year passed mid Mahoney was killed in a head-on collision a short distance from the spot.

PREMIER ANGERS CONSERVATIVES SPEECH CAUSES HOME RULE TO BE FORGOTTEN Question of Coolie Labor In South Africa Furnishes New Subject for Discussion— Rand Of. ficials Ny Associated Press. LONDON, Dec. 22.— The announce ment made by the premier, Sir Henry Cumpbell-Bunnermun, in his speech at Albeit hall Monduy night him aroused a storm of indignation among the Con servatives, as n result of which 'home rule in Ireland appears likely to be well nigh forgotten. What ever may have been the Intention of the premier, his notion is looked upon in some quarters as an i.droit counter movement to Mr. Bnlfour'a plan of forcing discussion of home rule to the front at the forthcoming campaign. In any case, It projects a new nnd totally unexpected theme of contention into the forefront. It had been sup posed that the new government would do nothing of the kind without first appointing a commission to consider the question. The leading officials of the Rand as a general rule reserve their opinions on the matter, but they admit the action of the government can have lit tle effect for at least a year, as 48,000 Chinese coolies are already there, while the original idea was to experiment with 5000. The elections for the new government of the Transvaal wrtl take place in February. The Daily Tele graph, an organ of the late Bui four ministry, In an editorial in this morn ing's issue, contends that there Is ab solutelyno legal means at the disposal of the Campbell-Bannerihnn govern ment by which It can stop the exporta tion of coolies from China or their ad mission to South Africa without ex posing that country to actions for damages, which it says may easily run into the millions.' It advises the mine owners of the Rand to continue the Importation of coolies and to leave the colonial office to "do its worst." The Johannesburg correspondent of the Times Buys that the general atti tude in the region affected is a calmly expectant one.- He adds that contracts have already; been signed and sanc tioned by Ihe Transvaal government for 11,800 more coolies, which number will enable- the mines to carry on their operations comfortably pending the for mal decision of the inhabitants of the colony, which will be the same whether under a representative or any other form of government. "If the government." says the cor respondent, "compels the repudiation of these contracts it will not only be mulcted In compensation to the extent of at least a half million, but It will create a genuinely serious situation. On tho other hand, if the contracts should be carried out, no harm will be done." v ' HIS NAME CHANGED TWICE Now C. A. Brower Will Change a Young Woman's Name by Mar. riage and Let Own Alone .
