The Murder Determined On.
"On Monday, May 10, 1881, tho nssassln de

In Strict Confinement.
On July 10, 1881, tho Orand Jury aljourno I
until Septombor 12, and, It being then lmpossl
bio to ascertain tho final result of the attack on
tho President, DlBtrlct Attorney Oorkhlll wroto
a letter to Wardon Crockor giving tho follow

"I deslro that you placo him ou one side or
the Jail wheto thero are uo other prlsonors
and where moans of cscapo aro Impossible;
that)ou will allow him to soo no oilier person
whatover, and that he bo not permlttod to hold
conversation with nny of the guards, and that
he bo rigorously oxcludod from rocelvlug or
sending any communication except those de
livered by mo or locelved by my direction."
The Jail CJunrded.
From tho dnto ot the Incarceration of tho
assassin until tho presont tlmo the Jail has
been guarded by United States Boldlers, This
was deemed neoessary, not only to guard
against tho possibility of oscapo, but also as a
piotectlon to tho prlsor.or, for tho publlo mind
vassomuch excltod that at times It would
not hav o required much urging to mnko an at
tack upon tho Jail, Tho prisoner was almost
dally In tho receipt of threatening lottors
from all sections of the couutry. Many of
them camo from cranks, but others from poo
plo who ically meant business.

Two clearly-defined attempts woro mado to

guard duty at tho Jail, wont with a uumbor ut

greatest excitement at tho Jail.
Mason, utter 11 ring the shot, quietly surren
dered himself to his commanding onleor, Cap
tain McOllvray, and was sent back to the
Arsenal under guard. He said that ho had
been meditating the act for some days and
was sorry that ho had failed In killing the
wretch. Ills own explanation ho gave to a
icpoitar In tho tullowlug language;
"I shot for tho purposo ot killing tho man.

Mason was conllnod In the guardhouse at
the Arsenal for a long tlmo, and was brought
to trial beforo a court-maitlal, convicted ot a
violation nt military discipline, and soutouce J
to the Albany Penitentiary. But outsldo ot

On August 17, Qulteau and Mr. W. O. Mo
0111, ono ot tho Jail guaids, had a tusslo In tho
cell. Tho stories about It woro conflicting,
and havo uover yet been satisfactorily cloarod
up, Ono report was that Oulteau attackod tho
guard, and another that tho guard wantod to
kill Oulteau. Tho guard's coat was cut by a

was fired, but no serious damago was dono.

Tho Grand Jury returned a presentment

On October 14, tho Indictment having been
previously fouhd, Oulteau was arralgnod aud

A matter of general conjecture beforo Oulteau
was presontod for trial was tho lino of defense

Mr. Leigh HobIn?on, who entered tho ca?e

belief ot a great many that this would be dono.
Others thought that

tlio Insanity dodgo would bo rosorted to. It
proved that the latter was mado tho basis ot
the defense, aud tho caso was managed by Mr.

lawyer, won a great deal of favorablo comment
from leading members ot the liar for his able
cfTorts, although tho prlsonor did not sharo in
such opinion. Tho wretch wa3

question of Insanity, leading experts from all

Thero was, as Is always tho caso, a dlfforouco
of opinion among tho imyslclans, but that
Gultcau was not Insane on tho 1M of July was
proNen beyond a doubt. Tho prisoner himself
would not at any tlmo publjcly acknowledge
hlsallegod mental disorder.
On tho coutiary, ho denlod It, nnd more
than onco had disputed with Hcovllloon the
subject. So great an egotist wa3 ho Indeed
that ho would admit of no fault as to his char
nracter, habits, or condition calculated to go
against him. And yet the Insanity theory has
been steadily followod up. Thoso exports who
