Report Not True.
There has been a rumor afloat in
Emporium for some time, that Mrs. A.
Kresge of Dußois was dead. Mr.
Kresge has received numers letters
in regards to the truth of the matter,
and in a letter received from him he
says:"l am glad to say to the readers
of the PRESS and our friends, that the
report is not true. Although Mrs.
Kresge has been seriously ill for some
time, she is now in a fair way for a
speedy recovery."

Editor Press:
I have been informed that I have
been placed in nomination for Judge fo
Election by the Democrats of Grove
township, against my friend E. L.
Losey, Republican nominee. As lam
a full fledged Republican I make this
statement: I dont want any one to
vote for me for said office, as Mr. Losey
is a good fellow and very capable for
the office and will fill the place with
honor to himself and the party he rep
I allowed the use of my name before
the Democratic caucus through an
error, or mistake of mine over the
'phone. I was not aware that the
Democrats held their caucus the same
night that we held ours and supposed
it was a member of my own party who
was talking with me over the 'phone at
my place of business.
I don't want the office, so please do
not vote for me for Judge of Election
of Grove township. I shall do my best
to elect the full Republican ticket as

Better Settle Up First.
I. 11. Leggett, who has been a de
faulting collector since 1874, at which
time judgment was entered against
him and his bondsmen, G. W. Warner
and Benjamin Sweesy, in the Court of
Common Pleas of Cameron county for
the sum of §313.89, since which only
§IOO appears to have been paid. The
judgment was received in 1894 for the
sum of $261 30, which, with the interest,
amounts at this writing in round
numbers to $365.00. Had not the tax
payers better ask him to pay this up
before giving him an opportunity to
spend any more of their money ?—ln
The above item appeared In last
week's Independent and is a great in
justice to Mr. I. H. Leggett. We have
no excuses to offer for the many short
comings of the Sliippen school board;
know nothing, and have no desire to
know, of the cause of the disagree- |
ments between the editor of the Inde- j
pendent and the school board, but we j
do happen to know that the charge j
made above against one of our old ;
citizens and friends is without founda
tion in fact. In 1874 Mr. Leggett did
owe Shippen school district $315.89.
Since that time he has paid the debt
and interest, amounting to $335.30. We
hope the Independent will rectify this i
(ioebel Shot.
FRANKFORT, Ky., Jan. 30.—Senator
Goebel was shot and seriously wound
ed at ten minutes after 11 this morn
ing. The shooting was done by some
man at present unknown. Mr. Goebel
was walking up the sidewalk leading
to the senate Chamber when a man in
the second story of the building imme
diately to the east of the Capitol fired
upon him. Five shots were fired and
Goebel fell to the ground seriously
wounded. He was at once carried to
the Capitol Hotel. The wildest ex
citement was instantly created in the
town and within ten minutes after Mr.
Goebel had been shot the streets were
filled with men carrying rifles and re
A guard was instantly thrown
around the building in which the shots
were fired to prevent the escape of the
assassin. A force of men dashed into
the building and ran up to the room
from which the shots were fired, but
could find no one. The guard was
doubled and Adjutant General Collier,
an ardent political apponent of Goebel
took charge of it, leading the work of
finding the man who fired the shots.
The wildest excitement prevailed all
over the town. "They have assas
sinated Senator Goebel!" was shouted
into the door of the House of Repre
sentatives an instant after the shots
rang out. The members rushed pell
mell over one another down the steps
to the front of the building, coatless
and hatless.
In five minutes word had flown and
hundreds poured into the State House
yard and it looked as if a riot would
result. Cooler heads advised the sur
rounding of the building from which
the shots came and in less than three
minutes 50 special police surrounded it
and a detail began a search of the in
terior for the assassin.
LATER. —GobeI not fataly hurt; ball
struck him in right side, passing
through body, coming out below
shoulder blade. At noon a report
from Senator Goebel's room is that the
wounded man is resting easily. Dr.
McMurray and other Louisville speci
alists have been telegraphed for and
will arrive here at 4:30 o'clock to asist
in caring for the wounded man.
STILL LATER (Jan. 31.) —During
yesterday afternoon the patient was
slightly improved. No hopes, how
ever, are entertained for his ultimate
recovery. Soldiers are pouring into
Frankfort in anticipation of more
serious trouble. At 3.45 p. rn., the
condition of Mr. Goebel was slightly
