This means much for Eastern Kentucky whose undeveloped mineral and timber resources are proba bly unsurpassed.

Kbit w.ii'AN editors of course will now turn their mud batteries on the Krough tons of Bell County whose testimony aa to the damnable plot to assassinate Gov ernor Goebel was bo positive and com plete that even Col. Colson, Berry How ard's attorney, was "horrified" at the disclosures. And much of this testi mony was brought out by Colson him self. Belittle the evidence, make light of it or pick flaws in it as much as they please, Republicans will not be able to rid the unbiased mind of the conviction that the cowardly assassination was the work of the Taylor-Powers gang, and was all deliberately planned and carried out. KKNTICKY CROPS. Cool Weather Last Week Retarded ProjreMS of Vegetation Wheat Has Im proved, Bat a Short Crop is Feared. (Weekly Bulletin of Weather Bureau, Louisville, April 22.) The weather was very cool during the first part of the week, with light frosts in some localities. The temperature rose slowly until Sunday, when a rapid rise took place and the week closed with very warm weather. No serious damage re sulted from the frosts. Light showers occurred at nearly all stations, the rain fall being heaviest in the southeastern portion of the State. Wheat has improved slightly, but is backward and will be a short crop. Some fields in the central portion of the State have been plowed up to plant to other crops. Corn planting has advanced well in the western section, but is very back ward in the east. Tobacco plants have started slowly and are not growing well, except in the western section. Peaches will be a very light crop, but other fruits promise well. Grass in past ures and meadows and, in fact, all vege tation is backward and needs warmer weather. Garden planting has advanced slowly and only the hardiest vegetables are up. Irish potatoes have been plant ed in most places and in the western section are coming up. Oats have been sown and are coming up well, but mak ing slow growth. Farm work is fairly well up.

Bell County Official Says He Hart Caleb Power Names or Men Who Woald Do the Work. Frankkort, Ky., April 21. The Com monwealth rested its case against Berry Howard, charged with being a principal in the Goebel murder, to-day. The tes timony was the most sensational that has gone to a jury in the case since the confessions of Wharton Golden and W. H. Culton were made. The witnesses giving it were Henry Broughton, former Sheriff of Bell County, and his brother, Anthony Broughton. Henry Broughton told the story, and Andrew Broughton corroborated what he said. The story told by the former Sheriff was that on the request of Caleb Powers, then Secretary of State, he furnished Powers with the names of Frank Cecil, Zach Steele and Jake Van Bibbers, all of Bell County, as men who could be secured to assassinate William Goebel. He boldly told the jury that he was at that time willing that Goebel should be killed as a means of settling the Guber natorial contest, and that he expected the assassination to take place on Janu ary 25, 1900. He said the original plan was to have Goebel killed on the day the mountain army was in Frankfort ; that he, Berry Howard and other "good men" selected by Caleb Powers stayed close about the Agricultural Building, momentarily expecting to hear the gun crack which would be the announcement to them that Goebel had fallen. He began his story by telling of his efforts to get together the Bell County portion of the mountain mob. He knew at the time the purpose for which they were being banded together. He came to Frankfort with them, over the pro test of his wife. At her solicitation, he returned home on the night of the day on which he came, after he saw that the original plan to murder had miscarried. Upon sober thought he decided that Bell County was the safest place for him. Much of Broughton's testimony was brought out on the cross-examination by the defense. This was conducted by Col. Colson, who later expressed himself aa horrified at the story as told by Brough ton. and his part in the murder. In answer to questions by Attorney Colson, the witness said that he suggested the names of Cecil, Steele and Van Bibber to Caleb Powers because, from a knowledge of the men, he believed they would be willing to assassinate Goebel. "I was willing that Goebel should be killed to seat Taylor, and did not hesitate about suggesting some one to do it," said Broughton. He admitted that he received the news of the assassination at Pineville with pleasure. The cross-examination also brought out that for some months after the assas sination Broughton had protected How ard from the warrants of the Franklin Circuit Court; that he sent word to Berry to get out of the way, and that Howard was a guest at his house. He only served the warrant when a rule had been taken against him in the Franklin Circuit Court. The opposition of Howard's friends to the election of Broughton as County Clerk helped along bis determination to bring Berry to court. Exclusive of the testimony which he gave corroborative of what his brother Henry told, Anthony Broughton testi fied that Howard showed h;m a gun at Pineville in February, and said : "This is the gun that killed the gobbler." C01NTY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS. State Superintendent McChesuey Urges All to Attend Next Meeting of Kentocky Educational Association. Hon. H. V. McChesney, State Superin tendent of Public Instruction, addresses the following to the various County Superintendents of the State : The County Superintendent is the vitalizing, animating professional spirit of the school work In every county in the State. If his administra tion is rigorous, forceful and progressive, it will tell in the spirit of his teachers : if he fears criti cism and degenerates into a time-server his teachers will, perhaps unconsciously, absorb some of bis professional debility. Nowhere in all the professions and pursuits of civil lifejis in telligent, capable leadership so necessary as in the public school work. The marked difference in the educational spirit of counties lying side by side emphasizes this. The cause" Difference lu leadership. , "In more than half the counties of thelCom monweatb there is a new general in command. What the results will be we can not yet kuow, but the signs are good. In the earnest hope that tbey may help to make results justify the prom ises, these few words of counsel are offered. "The essential qualifications of a County Su perintendent are literary ability, common seuse, fearless devotion to dnty, and the true profes sional spirit of bis work. The Superintendents possess the first of these, or they would not be holding certificates of qualification ; we need not concern ourselves as to the second and third : if the Lord did not look after these it is too late to remedy the defects, but the last is largely a mat ter of cultivation ; the Superintendent can de velop it, and we are willing to take the responsi bility of saying that the best possible way he can do tnls is by attending educational meetings, where he touches elbows with tbose who are able to strengthen his faith, revitalize his energy, give tone to his courage and help perfect his ideas. The discussion of the various problems that confront htm by those who are wrestling with them, like himself, helps him to a correct solution. A council of war is as necesssary in a campaign against ignorance and vice as it is in a campaign against material enemies. "These premises and observations lead me, in conclusion to my text The Kentucky Educa tional Association. Its next meeting will be held at Lexington, beginning at 2 o'clock p. m., Jane 24th, 1902. The President and the other members of the Executive Committee are bend ing every possible energy to make this the great est meeting in the history of the association, and reports from them are that the prospects are exceedingly bright and that we may expect such agatberlngof tbe clans at historic old Lexington as will inaugurate a new era in matters educa tional." . .
