Louisville, Ivy., Nov. 17.—A question
which is likely to have an important, if
nut a deciding influence on the contest
for the governorship in Kentucky, was
brought up to-day by the canvassing
board of Jefferson county, which includes
Louisville. Counsel for the democratic
candidates gave notice of a motion to ;
throw out the vote of the city because
of the presence of militia at the polling
places on Nov. 7. The notice served on
the commissioners, says:
"For the democratic candidates we now
give notice that at the close of the count
and before any certificates be issued, we
will move the board and all of its author
ities that may consider this election to
declare null and void the election held
in the city of Louisville on the 7th day
of November, 1899."
Among the causes enumerated for this
proposed action are the following: "Be
cause of the usurpation of William O.
Bradley in calling out and illegally using
the militia and overawing and intimida
ting the voters and officers of said elec
tion and interfering with the progress of
said election and with the duties of the
officers of said election.
"Because the said use of the said mili
tia was unlawful in very respect and a
criminal usurpation of power by the
said named persons, and thereby the
civil power was subordinated to the mili
tary power and an overt act of treason
able nature against the constitution of
Kentucky was committed."
This action has been expected ever
since the official count began. It was
freely reported on election day that if
the militia'was called out it would re
sult in some such step. With Louis
ville thrown out Goebel would have a
safe plurality in the remainder of the
state. This dispute will prolong and
aggravate the fight.

county, says: A tragedy which resulted
in the killing of Charles Maughmor by
Clifford Riggs, a prominent sheep man
and a member of the firm of Riggs Broth
ers, occurred this morning near Maugh
rnor's farm on a disputed tract of land
where Riggs' shop were grazing, Maugh
mot, it appears, accompanied by his
brother, both on horseback, went to a
point where Riggs was establishing a
camp and an old dispute regarding the
possession of the land was revived. Hot
words followed and, according to a state
ment subsequently made by Riggs,
Maughmor started to pull his revolver,
when lie raised his rifle and tired. The
bullet entered just above Maughmor's j
heart, and he fell from his horse, dying |
in a short time. The dead man's brothel'
and an employe of Riggs were the only
witnesses. Riggs later rode to Mt. Idaho
and gave himself up to the authorities.
He says he acted in self-defense. Riggs'
home is in Lewistown, where he is well

The kaiser, in the course of an address,

Kansas City. Mo., Nov. 17.—Dwight
L. Moody, the evangelist, who has been
preaching here to thousands nightly in
Convention hall, is broken in health and
is suffering from an affection of the
heart. His engagement here was cut
short and to-night he is enroute to his
home at Northfield, Mass., in care of
physician. It is admitted that Mr. i
Moody's condition is serious, but not crit
ical. The reports as to the seriousness
of Mr. Moody's condition are conflicting.
Several of his intimate friends stated
to-night that while his condition was
serious, it was not critical. These
friends, however, reluctantly admitted
that they belived his career as a great
public speaker was nearing lhe end.

Dexter, Mo., Nov. 17.—-Much mystery
surrounds the death of Rev. Jesse Moore,
the Methodist minister, who was assas
sinated yesterday at his home near Pvle,
six miles from Dexter. So far as known
he had no enemies. Although three sons
slept in the same room with their father
all the members of the family declare
they heard no shot. A shotgun was found
in a rack on the rear porch with one bar
rel empty, showing that it had been re
cently discharged. Before the coroner's
jury, Elijah, the eldest son, testified that
last week his father loaned the gun to
a neighbor whom he (witness) did not
know. Elijah says he believes this un
known neighbor last night returned with
his gun, killed his father and placed the
weapon in the rack. The jury rendered
a verdict that the minister came to his
death at the hands of some unknown as
sassin. Proescuting Attorney Farris
| and Sheriff Evans decided, however, to
arrest Elijah Moore and he is now in jail
at Bloomfield. The young man vigor
ously professes his innocence.

Bishop Potter's Visit.
New York, Nov. 18.—The Herald says:
Bishop Potter has sent a cablegram from
Yokohama announcing his arrival in
Japan and a stay in Honolulu of a day
and a half. He is accompanied by the
Rev. Percy S. Grant of the church of the
Ascension. They are on their way to the
Philippines but may go to India before
they return. Bishop Potter's Honolulu
errand was to meet the Right Rev. Dr.
Alfred Willis, the bishop there. The po
litical relations of tlie island having
changed, it appears that there was ex
pectation that a transfer of the diocese
might have been made to the American
house of bishops before this but for the
Inaction of the Honolulu bishop. His
diocese is an independent one but has a
nominal connection with the church of
England from the fact that the nomina
tion) to the bishopric is vested in the
archbishop of Canterbury.
