oer stained Kentuckys hist < ry fi
Senator William Goebel litat tl
the brink of death shot through u
and through with a Winchester ri fi
fle fired by ono of the mountain
assassins brought here tit the in it
stance of the desperate leaders of
the Republican party tl
The wouldbe assassins for
there were several of them were I
ambushed on the second and third i tl
floors of the executive building n
and the volley of five shots was j a
fired from the windows one ball IlJ
passing through the Senators III
body coming from a front second j tl
story window which looks out j n
from a vacant room j o
Senator Goebel accompanied by J
Mr Jack Chinu was walking to 3
the Statehouse 11 oclock to at i
tend the Senate session and WAS
within fifty feet of the broad steps f
of the building when the volley t
was poured out of the windows
the first shot coming from the y
front and the other four from a a
thirdstory side window directly
over the entrance to the executive t
building The right breast was r
penetrated between the nipple and f
the armpit ranging two inches r
downward und making an exit two 11
inches to the left of the spinal

INTENSE EXCITEMENT
Suoh scones excitement have I
never been before witnessed at the t
capital of this Commonwealth
Goebel on the eve of being declar
ed to be the dulyelected Gover
nor as all men had come to re t
gard the deoiaion of the Legisla
ture had hardly fallen to the J
pavement when in the Senate E
chamber in the House in the
Governors office in all the public
buildings and through the streets
rang out the appalling exclama
tion Goebel is assassinated 1 J
Strong men turned pale at the I
awful deed done and at the con I
templation of what was expected I
to happen Dignified and bray j
laired Senators startled at Un I
clear ringof the rifle shots were
almost struck dumb when a br thI
less messenger ran into the cham
ber and exclaimed They have
assassinated Gopbell ran down I
the stone steps hatless and stoodI
dazed in the cold air hardly k1 ow
ing which to turn or what they i
should do
Members of the House were
shocked by the suddenness of the
awful news People almost fell
over each other in their efforts to
be first en the scene
Listen at the shots the mom
bers had just exclaimed as they
sprang from their seats and iiow
that they had run to the door and
beheld the seemingly lifeless body
of the brave Democratic leader ly
ing stretched out on the pavement t
they halted as if struck by palsy t
gazed foe a moment on the scene
before ttyerq and then as if
of one mind rushed forward nnd
surrounded the body
BORE THE WOUNDED MAN AVfAYV

Surround the executive build

Catch the nssassini and kill

Im ready to die with Goebel
Throngs of people rushed >
through the streets breathless and as
many of them hatless and all in
state of excitement bordering OJt
uia ucss It is fortunate that
some men have cool heads eTOn in
the midst of the most startling
occurrences else today the streets
of Frankfort might hare been in
drenched with the blood of many
< > od citizens of the State Pass
ing swiftly but with mental calm
ness throughtile crowds were a
few wise councillors who said to
the Democrats me
Keep cool Remember that I
Joil are lawabiding citizens and
all will end well
Though restrained from violence
the politicians at the capital re
main in a state of excitement
from which they are not likely to to
recover while Senator Goebel lies
apparently dying from the bullet
of a wouldbe assassin
I
SPECIAL TRAIN WITH SURGEONS
From the first the physician said
lift wound was probably fatal and
tonight after consultation with
several of the most eminent Bur
cons of Louisville Lexington and
Cincinnati it was given out that
the Senator probably had one
chance in a hundred of recovering
His brother Arthur Goebel arriv
ed on a special from Cincinnati
with A corps of surgeons at 6
oclock
WARNED ON SUNDAY
Sunday morning Mr John K
loudrick while in Senator Goe
bels room said I want you to
promise me that you will not go
out of the hotel again They will
assassinate you Always brave
oud courageous Senator Goebel
replied If they assassinate me
my death will be to the Democrat
ic party of Kentucky what the
blowing up of the Maipe was to
Cuba Y Senator Goehels broth
er Arthur who spent Sunday
with him was in the room and
said Will is going to do his
duty no matter what may be the
dangerINTERVIEW
INTERVIEW WITH MR CHINN
Mr Goebel statarted to the cap
itol accompanied by Mr Jack
China and Mr Eph Lillard >
thoughthe latter walked some dis
tance in front The Senator wore
his black chinchilla ovorqoat a
gray suit and black soft hat
What followed is best described in
q dictated interview with Mr
Jack i n1w4a lrag about wo
feet behind the Senator and saw

at the Capital Hotel We all left
the room about the same time
Lillard Barclay and my
solf came down the stairawith Goe
bel Barolaywent into the hotel
lobby while Lillard and myself
accompanied him to the Capitol
Lillard and Goebel walked about
twenty feet in front of me as I
was holding buck for Mr Barclay
I caught up with them at the CapI
itol gate
gateAs
As I could not walk rapidly
Goebel fell back with mo while
Lilliard walked about thirty yards
ahead of us through the yard to
ward the General Assembly build
ing No conversation occurred be
tweon us so far as T can remember
I was on Goebels right and ho
was about two feet ahead of mo
j when the first shot was fired The
fountain is in the center of the
pavement about sixty feet in front
of the broad steps of the State
building When we were about
halfway between the fountain and
i the steps I heard the report of a
rifle
HOW MR GOEDEL FELL
At almost the same instant Goe
el bent double groaned harshly =
clutched at his right side fell to
lis knees I said
My God I Goebel they have
killed but little 18
you was a too
ar away to catch him
II guess they have he saidas to
was fallingW
He fell to his right and then forward a I
ward rolling over on his back Isl
think his right knee struck thetl
pavement first He raised a second b
s to get up on his elbow when I
saidLie
Lie still Goebal er
s or they might
shoot you again
The first shot struck Goebel a
and it was fired from one of the en
upper floors of the executive build °
inK just east of the General As Q
sembly building to which we were
goingh
The first shot was followed inBI
quick succession by four others th
and I heard the bullets hum bytJ
and over the body of Goebel u
am of the opinion that the sec w
ond shot was fired from a front
window It is my impression that c
they were rifle shots
AN APPEAL FOR AID
be
I looked for the shots trying
locate exactly where they camef
f
from Everybody seemed to keep
away except Eph Lilliard nndd
Representative Owen Cochran to
called ontIWont some one to
come and help carry Goebel away
when the crowd rushed up
Mr Lillard was almost in the
door ahead of us when the shoot
ing occurred He turned and 1
came running to Goebels side s
while Owen Cochran came up at n
the same time These men and sl
others picked him up and started n
with him to the hotel t
hI thought they had killed Goe c
bel instantly when he fell The s
blow seemed to stun him and his n
eyes were set I thought lie was
dead l
