Jan. 2S-The Courier Journal today publishes the following epecial from its staff corret-ponaent now at Franklort: "James B. Howard of Clay county, fired the shot that killed William Goe bel, aid Henry E. Youtsev, in his confession as to his part in and iuowledge of tbe conspiracy which resulted in the assassination or tne democratic claimant to the governor .ship. on January 80, 11(00. lie said tuat me shot was fared from the front window in the private office of Secretary of State Caleb Powers, and that he and Jim Howard were the only persons nside of the loom. He named William S. Taylor. Char les Finlev. Caleb Powers. John L. Powers, W illiam H. Culton. barton Golden and William J. Davidson as conspirators with him and said that while others were active and had a guilty knowledge that the crime was to be committed, these men advised Goe bel s aeath by shooting ana aided and abetted in procuring his death. Youtsey says that on Januray il, alter "fellow Dick' Combs and Mason Hockersuiith.the negroes, noti fied Youtsey that they were not willing to do the killing. Taylor dictated a letter to Jim toward. The letter was written oy Youtsey on the type writer and contained instructions from Taylor for Howard to come to Frankfort at once, that his pardon for the murder of George Baker awaited him. The letter also instruc ted Howard to report to Henry K Youtsey in the State Auditor s office when he arrived in Frankfort and to present his. Tajlor's. letter to out sev. Then, theJetter said, Youtsey wnld acquaint 'him. Howard, with the steps necessary to be taken in order to procure the pardon. Taylor had told iouteey that By G-q. Howard was the man. tie had been in Frankfort after a pardon -and could settle the contest by killing Goebel." ' Howad Arrives. Howard arrived in Frankfort on the Chesapeake and Ohio train on the morning of January B0. Youtsey said , he reported at once to him in the Ex ecutive building and presented the letter signet by Taylor, "Youtsev told Howard that it had "been decided that the only way to win the contest tor the governorship was to Kill Gotbel. ana that if he woo d do the kill, ngTavlor would 110 : only pardon him for the murder of Baker, but also for tha murder of Goebel. and would give him $1,600 besides. How aid a iked how and when it could be done, and Youtsey told him of his plan to do the killing He sa id it was to pull down the winodw blind in the office of the Sacretary of State, raise the winch w and to shoot Ooebe with a smokekss powaer steel bullet as lie approachea the state house. Youtsey told Howard no one would ever know, that Taylor was Governor and head of the State Guard Howard agreed and Youtsey then Uft him in the hallway, while he made a report to Taibout 11 :15 o'clock Youtsey un locked the door and let Howard in. " He had previously adjusted all the window blinds and had placed three rifles In the room. Each was loaded -with the steel bullets. One of the rifles Youtsey said he had boowd from Grant Koberte, also a clerk in the Auditor's office. The other two , had Jot around the Executive building Youtsey said that while the room was darkened, it was not diffi- . cult to see. and that Howard examined each rifle witu great care. He weigh ed them in his hands and tooK aim with each one. He wanted to know if the eitrhts were perfect, and Youtsey, being a good marksman himself, told Howard that the weapons were all "suddenly Goelel, Jack Chinn and ..Eph Ullaid were sighted on their way to the Stale House. Goebel aud Chinn were walking ahead of Lilian, and as they turned into the gate leading into the Capitol grounds Youtsey said that i ..., t i inoiml to Howard, and told him that ho was the man to " le tilled. Coetel is Shot. Howard got ou his knees, aimed the IMarlin rifle, which Youtsey had bor rowed from Grant Roberts, out the window, took steady aim and fared. ioelel fell mortally wounded. Yout sey paid that when Howard fired at Oobelhe (Youtsey) was stanaing in side the room, but with his back turu d to Howatd and with his hand on ae knob of the door leading from Power's office into the hallway near the entrance to the cellar, or basement. Youtsey said that when the shot rang out he sprung from the room awl ran' down the st.iirway into the base ment He cried: "My G-d. what s he matter?-' as ha ran. Ee ran i .1.., .nrfii Into Tavlor s office, and told him that Howard had. done the worn "ucu killed. Tavlor was greatly excited, but was glad that Howard had per formed his servior. Vuutsey did not know how (toward left Powers uflioe, ' but said that it was his belief th.it he walked into the main hallway, then iuto the ante-room of the Gover nor's office and theuce into where Talvor w. . Wnen he saw laylor the Governor told Howard that whs no tlace for him to be. ihon Howard left iha KwoatiM -ballliuA ud the trround. He did not leave Frankfort for home, however, until Goebel had Yontaey said that Howard was paid the money which Taylor had offered. Tavlor delivered it to .Youtsey and he !aid Howard. V out aey paid that the amusements for killing Goebel were perfeJtcd at a meeting which was held on Monday night. Senary W, in the Land Oflico, wMrli is on the north ide of tbe Exeuitiie building, and directly on tuo war to the State Auditor 8 office. Ha mM tnoee present at tha meeting were W. S. Taylor, Caleb Power. John U Power. IL Culton. Wharton Golden. W. J. Davidson and himself and one other, whose name he gave. . Youtsey said that the object of Tay lor. Finlev and Powers in bringing the mountain army to Frankfort wae to bring about the killing of Goebel in a general fight. He said that Demo cratic Judge of the Court of Appeal and other Democrats were aliso to be killed. When this plan failed, then it was that it was deoidid by Taylor, Power and Finlty to seek Goebtl's death alone. - . In all of Yootsey'a confession he toUt but little to exculpate himself. He told what he did on all occasions, but he did tell that when the killing of Goebel was first suggested by Taylor and theothers, be said that it was not the proper thing to do. He said that he was drawn into the plot by the fact that he was close to Taylor and was to oe nis private mulc tary. Taylor also dictated all his pri vate ani secret corresjondence to him. ai;d in this way they become intimate. While it is not known that Youtsey has told of the motives which moved tbe other men in the conspiracy to seek nnyVa Wth. thev are kcowu.

Says He Doesn't Consider Uncle Sam a Pauper and He Must Pay for Carrier's Tolls Criticises The Herald's Articles of Yesterday. The Herald this morning was handed thn following communication from Mr. Horace Kainey: 'Columbia, Tenn.. Jan. 29. "In your yesterday's issue yon seem to place the whole blame of the posni M discontinuance of the Rural Route service in this county ou me. l.i Kiihliwlmd nnlv a nart the facts aud the failure to publish the nthur nrt leaves me in aa unfair and unjust attitude which is calculated to prejudice my cause in the minds of the people. The herald Company cannot afford to pubilsh its paper to be distributed free, nor can a turnpike a railroad com pany afford to build aud aeep up its roaus and give free travel to its pa trons. The turnpike toil rates are regulated by the state statutes and we cannot and do not charge such rates to one without givng the same rates to all. Whan thin rural rout seivice was first establihsed in Maury county, an official of the government. asked me what toll-rates would be given to the carriers on roads represented by me? I end to him that I fold on two of my roads a ticKet at 20 discount if paid for in avdance, but on my other roada the government must pa y at the same rates that we are paid by indi viduals; i. e.. the statutory rates. The government declined to take ad nf the discount ticket and oTitaruil into a contract with each of my turnpike companies, igree inar to tav the legal rates of toll i. e. 7 mi ifcr nnarter. where there was nnlv nn irnfe to be rjassed through, by the carrier, and $15 per quarter where there were two gates. I make it a rule to pass free at my tii.tfato nil nbiects of charity, and as I do not consider the United States government a pauper, I had no hesit tatiou in demanding pay from it, The government could just as consia- tontlv demand that the L. & N. Rail way carry its mails for nothing or the mail carriers deliver the mails to the people for nothing or the postmaster and its clerks work for nothing, as to oirni.r. tnrnnike comrjanies to furnish their roaas to the carriers for nothing. If the Herala Company will print ad- mffiaamontu for thn frnverninent and for the people for nothing and publish its Daper ana aenverii 10 me puynu for nothing, then I will allow the government and the people free tolls at the toll-gate. Does Air. Lander remember but a few weeks ago in an editorial he admonish ed the county court to pluck the beam out of its own eye? In his editorial of today, he is both innnnsiHtent and ridiculous. He says: Tha nnMnv nf th covemuient not to pay tolls for its rural route carriers is a narrow and penurious one ; to appropriate several hunared thousand dollars to one enterprise, and then I squirm over toll-gate charges is al ir,r minr.nmntible in its littleness. liwther on he savs:" We do not think the policy of the department at Washington is right; we do not think fhA Human ds made uDon the turnpike maria ia fair tn. ' He condemns the government for its contemptible little noau nnrl Tin fair demaudB on the tarn- piae roads, ana in the very next sentence he severely conuems me ior uui ouu mitting to these uujust demands. And his intimation that a small turn pike corporation could "clog the wheels of the eoverment, " is ridicu lous. The Herald's figures put the whole blame on me because I charge $15 per quarter, and other roaas mentioned less than that ; now tho fact is that all faiy roads but oub, have two gates, through which the carriers pass, whereas the roads mentioned in yester- Aurr a Horn lil have nulv one tltlte. in tnat iseue you make much over the fact that the Hampshire company allows the carriers to pass free over its roaa, and that it is the only road granting free tolls to the govern ment. This turnpike, it shoula be remem bered, is owned by the Hughes family, five or more of the family hold lucra tive government positions, and doubt less expect to hold them for years to come, if the Administration continues Republican, and can well afford to be seemingly generous to a rich govern ment, which rewards its political sup porters with fat paying offices. This may be politic, it is certainly good poll tics. The HeraM quoting from Postmaster Hughes, says: 'The government has decided it "will stop paying turnpike tolls (or the carriers, ant it means what it eays. " But the letter from the government to Postmaster Hughes says: "You will confer with the toll companies and make an effort to pro cure f:ee tr.ivel for the rural free delivery carriers. Should ihix rcquCHl be rcuacd tne advma bilily of dincontinu'Hi free rural carrier service fruiii the Columbia poHtofftoe will be considered." I have italicised the last sentence to show that tbe Herald is preuature in laying the blame, on me and saying that the government has decided to discontinue the free rural delivery ser vice unless 1 gruuj free tolls to the carriers. The rural route service is a great thing for the daily papers, and of course the editor of the Herald is not Belrish iu wautiug to foster 'it at the expense of the turuwKes. nui me Herald tunst uot despair, the rural carrier syi. m is not dead and will not die, if the gaverumeut will not pay the tolls, the carriers will, ana if then will not, the people will, rather that do without The Daily Herald.
