The fourth trial of Caleb Powers
in Kentucky ended before it fairly
began, the judge vacating the bench
following the oharge of prejudice,
and aa the attorneys could not agree
on a judge the trial must await the
appointment of a new judge by Got.
Beokham, whose party in all the
trials for the assassination of Goe
bel haa schemed entirely for political
effeoL Democratic politicians hare
avoided the identification of the ass
assin or assassins in order to smirch
the Republican state officials who
were driven from office after that
event, and who wonld have been ex
polled anyway under the workings
of the Goebel election law that re
duced returns to a sure thing for the
Democratic ring manipulators. Re
cently they lost 2000 offices in
Louisville and Jefferson County on
aooount of similar frauds on the bal
lot, the slate courts deciding that
they vitiated the eleetion.
Powers, the state attorney general,
has been in jail seven years. Tay
lor, the governor, has been a resi
dent of Indiana for the same period.
Indiana's governors have refused to
oomply with the demand that he be
returned to Kentuoky on the ground,
whioh is self-evident, that he could
not get a fair trial there. The Su
preme Court of the United States
denied Powers a hearing asked, but
remarked in its decision that "the
trials of the aocused make an exhi
bition of misoonduot on the part of
administrative offioers connected
with these trials whioh may well
shook all who love justice and recog
nise the right of every human be
ing aecnsed of crime to be tried ac
eording to law." What are called
the assassination trials in Kentucky
have been merely a venomous politi
cal porenit of Republican state offi
ciala and an attempted anaingment
for murder of the whole Republican
party of Kentuoky. But for this
Democratic policy the assassin of
Goebel would have been singled out

AFTER THE RAIN
By T. R. BENR
A huge raindrop fell upon Kate’s
cheek, and, mindful of her best hat.
ahe fled to the first doorway until the
storm should pass. It was only a
summer shower, but she wanted the
hat to wear at the picnic to-morrow
and she hurried for shelter.
It happened to be the open doorway
of a business block. A fire had emp
tied the place of tenants and there
was a smell of wet, burned wood that
But still more unpleasant was the
fact that the doorway was already oc

Hitchcock only smiled again. No
sense of guilt hung heavily upon his
conscience. He had made fun of
Kate’s favorite matinee hero, and she
had angrily declared that she never
again wished to speak to a man who
was so lost to the appreciation of
artistic endeavor. He had attempted
to defend,his position and had only
succeeded In angering her the more.
He knew how frightened she was
by thunder showers, and every time
she shrank from the heavy reverbera
tions he longed to take her in his arms
and comfort her, but he knew better
than to soak to force the conversation
when her every nerve was Jangling.
But when an exceptionally heavy peal
rent the air, he sprang forward and
grasped her arm.
‘‘Don’t be afraid,’ he said, reassur
lngly"That struck nowhere near here.
There is not the slightest danger.”
Kate regarded him indignantly. He
had sometimes teased her about her
fear of lightning, and she was keenly
sensitive about her peculiarity.
In her overwrought nervous condi
tion she believed that he was again
tormenting her and, at hla touch, she
shrank back, her face white with
anger and her eyes biasing.

Before he could step out into the

did not anticipate the move( and was
thrown off his balance. Before he
could recover himself Kate stood in
the doorway, gathering her skirts in

on the opposite side of the street,
while the discharge was accompanied
by a terrific clap of thunder.
With a little cry Kate turned and
blindly ‘sought Hitchcock, who sprang
forward to catch her. She threw her

oblivious to all else, sought to calm
her. Gradually the sobs softened, and
fct last Kate lifted her head.

her tears, "but I never supposed that

added, “you were not right In saying
what you did about Mr. Kernochan.”
"If you had let me finish what I

“Mrs. Kernochan, or Mrs. Cassidy,
