Sept 26 -James B Howard, who has beco cc trial for the past tea days, charged with being a principal in the assassinate of Wa G)ebei, wag found guilty today, the jury fixing his punishment at death The fact that the jury had delibor a.ed all of yesterday afternoon without raaching a verdict led to a beiief that it was hopelossly divided, and this fact mace the verdict a shock to Howard and those who hoped for his ultimate acquittai Howard did not lose his composure when the verdict caiiing for the es? treme penalty of the law was read io the crowded court room. He glanced at his attorneys, who sat beside bim, and smiled and said nothing. ?fter the jury had been discharged Howard was taken back to the jail and there for the first time be betrayed emotion. He called for a pen and paper and wrote a long letter to his wife, daring which tears ocursed down his cheeks. He waejoioed later by his attorneys, who spent a good part of the day in confer? ence with him in regard of the motion for a new trial which will be fited to? morrow and other matters in connection with the case. W. H Calton, who is under indict? ment as an accessory to the Goebel j murder, ana who gave damaging evi j dence against both Howard and Caleb I Powers, was released on bail this aftcr j noon and bis case was continued until ; the January term. His bond was fixed j at ?10,000, and bis brother in law, ? E E Hogg of Owsley county, and J. ? F.Halcombacd Jobn"Johnson of Jack? son count? became his sureties. J Howard and his friends are very bit i ter in their denunciation of witnesses wbo, it is charged, were io the con? spiracy to murder Goebel and who have since been manufacturing testimony against others in order to obtain im? munity for themselves. "Jim''" Howard, as Le is commonly known io the mountains, is a striking? ly handsome man, 44 years of age, and would be one of the lase to be pointed out by a stranger as the man on trial. He has the record, however, of being the leader of tbs Howard-White faction in the Baker Howard feud in Clay county, in which numerous lives were taken He had killed George Baker and was suspected of the assination of Tom Baker, who was killed after the same fashion as Goebel, and Howard's j friends believe that these facts had very much to do with the making of the verdiot sentencing him to the gal? lows. ?, The trial of Henry E. Youteey of Newport will be called next Monday at Georgetown. ---?-11 -? Poor General Miles! Washington. D.
