Bishops—Others Located m
West Virginia took a lively inter

of the M K church at Baltimore,
and it was well founded, as three of
the bishops, being twenty all told,
are natives of West Virginia. A
fourth lived iu the state for several

Of others elected, Dr. W.^ F.
Anderson is a native of Morgantown
and has a brother and a sister living
in Monongalia county at this time.
He has made a great record as re
ording secretary of the board of ed
ucation of the church.
Dr. Edward H. Hughes, another
elected at this meeting, was born
and grew to manhood at Mounds
ville, and is one ot the most dis
tinguished men of his denomination.
He is now president of DePaw
university, iu Indiana.
Another ot those recently elected
is I)r. C. W. Smith, whom, while
he was born in Favelte county,
Pa., is more of West Virginia
than that state, since his father,
Rev. Wesley Smith, was for many
years a pastor in this state.
It is quite remarkable that, of
the twenty bishops of the world in
ho great a denomination, should
have one-tifth of their number from

Governor Willson Issues Pardon
to Powers and Jim Howard,
Two Noted Prisoners.
“I shall join my little family at
“I will first g-» to Bar boars ville to see
mother." - Caleb Powers.
The above sentences were uttered by
two of Kentucky’s moat noted prisoners
last Saturday—two men who had looked
through dark prison bars since 190 *, each
praying that the morrow might be a
brighter day; a day when Kentucky civ
ilisation might open its eyes and believe
their inuooenoe. After years of confine
ment and legal battles of world renown
Oov. Augustus Willson hearkened to the
prayers from the dismal cells; thought of
that old grayhaired mother sitting in the
mountain cabin* yearning for her son ;
thought of the supplications that were
being offered to Him daily by a kind in
valid wife and loving children for the re
turn of the husband and father; gave
heed to petitions of half a million people
representing all trades and callings; lis
tened to the appeals of Jnstice and the
(ioddess of Liberty, and with one strode
of the pen caused the creaking iron doors
of the prison to part, thus permitting two
whohadlteen sentenced to the scaffold
to a^ain breathe the balmy air under the
American Eagle protected by that old
monument of glory, the Stars and
Oil January lo, 11>oo, Gov. Wm. Go
bel was shot us he was entering the state
house at Frankfort, Ky. Two months
later Caleb Powers was arrested, charg
ed with complicity in the murder. He
was placed on trial July 15 of the same
year and convicted In February of the
following yeur ho was granted a new
hearing, and in November was sentenced
to life imprisonment. In September,
1Bo2, his conviction was again reversed.
The third trial began August 3, 19o3, and
on the 24th of that month he was again
convicted and sentenced to death He
successfully fonght the carrying out of
this s ‘iitenco for nearly four years, when
on February 20, Hto7, a new trial began,
but was adjourned on account of objec
tions raised to the presiding judge.
Powers was once more brought beforo
judge and jury on Novenber lo, last,
and on the 4th of January the jury fail
ed to agree. He was again remanded to
prison and remained in durance vile un
til the 13th inst. when he and his com
patriot, James B. Howard, wero pardon
ed by Governor Willson.
James B. Howard, who was pardoned
with Powers, was a noted feudist of Olay
county. He was accused in confessions
ly Henry E. Youtsey of taking part in
tlie actual assassination, and the possi
ble connection of Youtsey and Howard
with the case have been the occasion of I
many conflicting statements in the
shape of newspajs-r interviews, affidavits
in the various trials and appeals on be
half of different persons who hud been
in some way implicated in the vanons
trials. Youtsey, who was stenographer
and private secretary to Governor Tay
lor, said that Powers gave him the office
key and his testimony in the case hns
been one of the most bitterly assailed
points in the case against Powers.

THt GONTFST AT HUNTINGTON
For Awhile It Was A Livetu Gonven
tlon-Scherr Oeleoates Were
And Instructed to Vote
tor N. B. Scon
forU. S. Sen
There was a uotable content at
Huntiugtou last Wednesday aud
Thursday whioh for a time bid
fair to eclipse auythiug iu the
political line that has so far beeu
pulled off during this great oou
test iu West Virginia. Wednes
day was the day set for uomiuat
iug the republican candidate for
state senator to represent the
Fifth senatorial district, compos
ed of the oouuties of Cabell, Lin
aud Putnam. It soon booame
evident after the delegates from
the three oounties had gathered at
Cabell county’s oourt house that
there would be lively times be
fore a uomination was made.
The principal element of disturb
ance was the Cabell county
Scherr-Swisher contest, there be
ing two sets of delegates to the
Senatorial convention'. The Swish
er delegates had won before the
executive committee, but the
Scherr people, led by Hon. John
T. Graham, carried the fight to
the floor of the convention aud
succeeded iu getting the solid
votes of the Lincoln aud Putnam
delegations in favor of their
delegation and by the terms of a
resolution they were empowered
to sit iu the convention aud oast
half of Cabell’s vote. When
Chairman Douglass called the
convention to order he named E.
E. Williams as temporary chair
man. The Sherr people moved to
substitute Johu W. Perry. After
a confused battle covering more
than an hour, Perry won the
chairmanship by asmall majority.
Williams, however, refused to
relinquish the chair aud for a
time it looked as though two
nominations would be made.
Finally the 8wisher delegation,
headed by Elliot Northoott, Frank
Tyree, W. F. Hite and others
adjourned until 10 o’clock Thurs
day morning and left the room.
The Scherr followers remained
and perfected their organization,
but finally agreed to adjourn un
til Thursday morning before tak
ing up the nomination of a can -
didate for state senator.
The Swisher people favored
C. L. Ritter, who is a close per
sonal friend of Isaac T. Mann,
and it is said if eleoted senator
would favor Manu for U. 8.
senator. The Scherr men and
temperance element wauted D. 8.
Smith, for several terms one of
Cabell county’s representatives in
the house of delegates.
The convention was called to
order by Chairman Perry prompt
ly at 10 o’clock on Thursday
morning when it was soon dis
covered that harmony with a
capital H would have full sway.
The Hwisaer followers finding
that they were out generated and
in minority gracefully agreed to
Smith’s nomination and he was
declared the republican candidate
for state seuator of the Fifth
district by acclamation.
The convention adopted a
resolution favoring the submis
sion of the prohibition question to
a vote of the people. Senator
Scott was indorsed and the nomi
nee instructed to vote for his re
election. D. B. Smith, the
senatorial nominee, is a pro-'
nounced prohibition advocate.
