Washington, Jan. 30.7-The bill for
the reorganization and Improvement ot
the weather bureau, which includes pro-
vision for pensioning disabled and aged
employes of the service, received a
black eye In the house yesterday. The
bill was bitterly fought by the oppo-
npntn nf civil pension rolls on account
of the life tenure provisions it contain-
ed, and it was sidetracked on a test
vote of 67 to 73. Although the speaker
ruled that it remained unfinished bust-,
ness when the house was again in com-
mittee of the whole, the opponents of
the measure believe the action of yes-
terday kills it.
The early portion of the day was de-
i voted to a lively scrimmage over the

Frankfort, Ky.t January 31.—While
walking through the capitbl grounds
on his way tx> the capltol building, at
ten minutes after 11 o'clock today,
William Goebel, the democratic con-
testant for governor of Kentucky, was
shot down and very dangerously
wounded. The shots were fired from a
window of the executive building Just
east of the legislative hail.
Hurtloml Whitaker, a farmer from
Butler county, the home of Governor
Tuylor, Is now in Jail at Louisville,
charged with the crime. There is no
direct evidence against Whitaker, and
lie was placed under arrest more be-
cause he was caught around the capl-
tol building when the shots were fired
than for any other apparent reason.
He denies in the most positive maimer
that he had any connection with the
shooting or knew anything about it
He was running toward the -place
where Goebel'fell and not~away from
ft when he was caught and arfested.
■Senator Goebel was wounded by a
rifle ball of small caliber, not over
thirty-eight, which struck him In the
right side jusq below the armpit. The
ball passed through the back part of
the right lung, across the body on a
diagonal line, coming out below the
left shoulder blade. No vital organs
were injured with the exception of the
That the shooting of Mr. Goebel was
the result of a carefully laid plan' is
without question. The man who dl^j

Goebel had fallen and while Chinn
was houldlng the wounded man, sup-
porting his head n his arms. Pour
shots wore fired at both men, All of
them struck dose, making the dust
fly from the brick pavement Both
Chinn and Llltard stuck close to their
his side until tlhe firing ceased. Chinn
and Llliard are men of expereoce in
affairs in which powder smoke ie a
more or less prominent feature, and
both declare that while they could! tell
the direction from which the bullets
came, they could but guess at the spot
from which they were fired.
“I tried hard to get a sight of the
fellow,” said Llliard. “He kept pour-
ing the lead down at us and I wli
swear there nas not a sign of any-
thing to indicate from where be was
shooting. As many shots as he fired
would make considerable powder
smoke, if ordinary cartridges were
used, but never a sign of sihoke could

spell,” said Colonel Obinn, “but there

used smokeless powder all right
enough, and 1 guess he was pretty
wise to do it Somebody might have
got 4ilm If they knew where to look
■for him. By the time we knew where
to look he hud gone and it was time
to look somewhere else."
When the firing ceased Llliard ran
for help. He had not far to go, for
there is always a crowd around the
capltol building. In less than a min
ute dozens of men were around Goe-
bel, He was losing much blood and
was becoming very weak. He was
hastily carried to the office of Dr. K.
E. Hume, hi the basement of the Cap-
itol hotel, about 1000 feet from the
spot where the shooting occurred.
Here he was laid upon a sofa, while
Dr. Hume made an examination, pro-
nouncing the wound to be of a naturs
that must cause dead In a short time.
waited until his victim was in full
eight before firing.
Ever s‘ince the Influx or mountaln-
ec-rs last week, there are a large num-
ber of them sleeping in the upper part
of the state house. It is not known,
however, that these men did the work,
or that they had any knowledge of the
premeditated crime. There has not
so far been discovered the slightest
direct evidence pointing to any man,
and it is not likely now that any will
ever be found. The man who fired
the shot took the precaution to com
ceul his location by using smokeless
powder cartridges. A score of pefiple
were where they had a full view of
the side of the building from which
the firing was done and all of them
declare tbat not a sign of powder
smoke was visible.
Mr. Goebel was on his way to the
senate chamber In company with Col-
onel Jack Ohlnn and Warden Epb
Llliard, of the Frankfort penitentiary.
Mr. Lillard was a few feet In advance
of Goebel and Chinn, who were walk-
ing side by side, Goebel being on the
right and Chinn on the left. From
the outer edge of the capltol grounds
to tlie step of the capltol building,
the distance is about 300 feet. Two-
thirds of this had been passed and the
men were walking slowly, when sud-
denly a shot rang out from a large
three-story building which stands fif-
ty feet east of the capitol building.
This building Wj used for offices by
nearly ulf the "leading officials of th-ti
state, Governor Taylor and the secre-
tary of state having rooms <^n the
first floor. As the shot was heard
Goeh6l gave a quick, involuntary ex-
rtniiHitloii of pain and made an effort
to draw* his own revolver. His
strength was unequal to tlie task how-
ere, and lie sank upon tlie pavement.
With grenlt rapidity several more
shots were tired, the bullets all strik
lng the brick sidewalk close to wlier-*
Goebel lay. None of them touened
him, however. Lillard hastily turned
around to aid Goebel who was sup-
ported by Chinn, who had his arms
about him almost ns soon as he touch-
ed the pavement
“Get help," said Chinn to Llliard,
and turning to Goebel, he asked: "Are
you hurt, Goebel? Did they get you?"
“They have got men this time,'* said
Goebel. ‘M guess they have killed
