By the president, Jas. G. Blame,
Secretary of State.
President Arthur's Inauyural.
Washington, Sept. 22. — President Arthur
has just taken the oath of office at the capitol,
in the presence of the members of the cabinet,
the justices of the supreme court and a few
senators and members of the house of repre
sentatives, till who could be notified this morn
iug iv time to be present; also, Gen. Sherman,
Gen. Grant, Rear Admiral Nichols, Hon. Han
nibal Haoilin, Gen. Beals and a few others.
This step was taken after conference between
the president, Secretary Blame and the attor
ney general. Very few persons knew the oath
was to be administered until the ceremony
was over. The president aud members of the
cibinet assembled in the mar
ble room shortly before 12 o'clock.
Chief Justice Waite in his full robes of office,
accompanied by the associate justices, pro
ceeded from the supreme court room to the
maible room. The doors were immediately
closed . Without any formality Piesident Ar
thur arose and standing upon one side of the
center of the table, Ciiief Justice Waite on the
other, took the oath of office. The president 8
manner was calm awd composed and his re
sponse "so help me God," was in a firm tone
and without a tremor.
ADDRESS TO THE NATIGN.
The president then read from manuscript
notes thefollowing address :
For the fourth time in the history of the
republic its chief magistrate has been removed
by death. All hearts are filled with grief and
horror at the hidious crime which has darken
ed our land, and the memories of the murder
ed president, his protracted suflerings, his un
yielding fortitude, the examples and achieve
ments of his life, and the pathos of his death,
will forever illume the pages of our history.
For tb'- fourth time the officer
elected by the people and ordained
by the constitution to fill a vacancy
so created, is called to assume the executive
chair. The wisdom of our fathers, foreseeing
even the most dire possibilities, made 6ure
that the government shouid never be imper
iled because of the uncertainty of human life.
Men may die, but the fabrics of our free in
stitutions remain unshaken. No higher or
more assuring proof could exist of the
strength and permanency of the popular gov
ernment than that though the chosen of the
people be struck down, his constitutional suc
cessor is peacefully installed without a 6hock
or strain, except the sorrow which mourns the
All the noble aspirations of my lamented
predecessor, which found expression in his
life; the measures devised and suggested dur
ing his brief administration to corect abuses
and enforce economy, to advance property and
promote the general welfare, to ensure domes
tic security and maintain friendly and honor
able relations with the nations of the earth,
will be garnered in the hearts of the people,
and it will be my earnest endeavor to profit
and to see that the nation shall profit by his
example and experience. Prosperity blesees
our country. Our fiscal policy is fixed by
law, is well grounded and generally approved.
No threateningissue mars our foreign inter
course, and the wisdom, integrity and
thrift of our people may be trusted to con
tinue undisturbed, the present assurance of
peace, tranquility and general welfare. The
gleom and anxiety which have enshrouded
the country must make repose, especially wel
come now. No demand for speedy legisla
tion has been heard. No adequate occasion
is apparent for an unusual assembling of
Congress. The constitution defines the func
tions and powers of the executive as clearly
as those of either of the other departments of
the government, and he must answer for the
just exercise of the discretion it permits, and
for the performance of the duties it imposes.
Summoned to these high duties and re
sponsibilities, and profoundly conscious of
their magnitude and gravity, I assume the
trusts imposed by the constitution, relying
for aid on divine guidance and the virtue,
patriotism and intelligence of the American
After the reading of the address by the
president, Secretary Blame stepped forward and
grasped the president's hand, and after him the
other members of the cabinet and all pres«nt
shook hands with the president
Ex-President Hayes arrived at the capitol
soon after the ceremonies of taking the oath
were concluded, and in company with Gen.
Grant shortly afterward left the capitol.
A meeting of the cabinet was held imme
diately after the ceremony of administering
the oath was concluded and continued until
half past 1 o'clock. A proclamation was pre
pared and signed by the president designating
Monday, the 26th inst., the day on which the
funeral takes place, as a day of fasting, hu
miliation and prayer throughout the country.
No other business was transacted. The mem
bers of the cabiuet were requested to retain
their respective positions.
It is authoritatively learned, as well as indi
cated by the president's inauguration address,
that there will be no session of congress until
the regular session December next.
Vietriny the. Kemains.
Washington, Sept. 22, 10:30 a. m.— The re
mains of the president have Dp to this hour
l>ecn viewed by over 25,000 persons. During
the entire night a steady stream of humanity
has poured through the capitol building to
take a last look. From 5,000 to S.OOO people
are now in two lines from the east front ot" the
capital for a long distance up East Capitol
street, and are passing through the east door
of the rotunda, one on either side of the re
mains and out through the west door at the
rate of about 4,000 per hour. Among those
who took a last look at the face of the dead
president this morning were a number of sis
ters of Charity and several hundred Catholic
orphans from St. Vincent acd St. Joseph's Or
phan asylums. Many persons from Baltimore
and Philadelphia have arrived- here to view the
Durine; the morning the crowd has con
stantly increased, and at 11 o'clock tlx're was
a dense mass of people in front of the main
steps in the east front extending two squares
up East Capitol street. People are flocking
to the city on every incoming train upon the
several railroads, to testify their profound
sorrow aithe nation's bereavement.
Very elaborate beautiful flower pieces, re
ceived from the White home, have been placed
at the head of the bier. Other floral tributes
have also been received and placed above the

when the seats will bfi placed in the rotunda

QUEEN VICTORIA'S FLORAL OFFERING.
Queen Victoria cabled this morning to the
British minister to have a floral tribute pre
pared in her name. It has just betm received
.at the capitol and placed at the head of the
bier of tne president. It is very large and is
an exquisite specimen of the florist's art. It
is composed of white roses, sinilax aud 6te
phauites. It is accompanied by a mourning
card bearing the following inscriprion: "Queen
Victoria, to the memory of President Garfield,
as an expression of her sorrow and sympathy
with Mrs. Garfield and the American people,
Sept. 23, ISSI."
Mrs. Garfield has selected six gentlemen, all
members of the Christian church, to act as
pall bearers to carry the body of the president
from the capitol to the hearse, and from the
hearse to the cars. They are D. V. Tingle, H.
C. Thier, W. W. Dungan.Benj. Summy, D.
F. Moor and W. S. Roose.
A special permit was issued this morning
by Dr. Smith Townsend, health officer of the
District of Columbia, to remove the remains
from the city to Ohio.
The late president's face has very much
changed since yesterday, the discoloration
stain having extended, rendering it necessary
to powder the face in order to soften some
what its darkened hue. It was stated last
night the coffin' would be closed at 1 o'clock
this morning on accout of the change that
has taken place in the dead man's face,
but the body is still lying in state and is be
ing viewed by multitudes. There will probably
be no change made in the original plan to
allow the remains to be seen until to-morrow
at 1 o'clock. The crowd in waiting to view
the body numbers at least ten thousand.
Some time before the ceflin was closed Mrs.
Blame and Mrs. Secretary Windom, entered
the rotunda and viewed the remains. Both
were shocked at the change and suggested to
the gentlemen company, the guard of honor,
that the casket be closed at once. This they
replied could not be done Avithont an order
from the cabinet. In a short time the order
came. Twenty-thousand people were in line
and it was half an hour before it became gen
erally known among the throne; outside that
the face could no longer be seen. When the
coffin lid was closed a beautifnl floral offering
of Queen Victoria was placed above it.
Notwithstanding the coffin was closed, the
crowds which passed through the rotunda of
the capitol remained undiminished. A line of
people four abreast, extended for many hun
dred yards, while the space in front of the
building was thronged with a surging mass
of humanity anxious to get in. It is estimated
that since this evening at least SO,OOO people
have visited the capitol, and at a
late hour to-night there was no mark
of a diminution of the number still waiting to
view the coffin containing the remains of the
CONDOLENCE OF GEN. ROSECRANZ.
Gen. Rosecranz telegraphs as follows:
Although distance forbids my participation in
funeral solemnities oC our deceased president
in Washington and Cleveland, which your tel
egram of this date announces, and requesting
my attendance, I unite in the profound na
tional soriow which they will earnestly but
most inadequately express, adding thereto that
personal grief which arises from having had
him as a member of my military family, and
sharer of my quarters, for many months of
the closest official and fraternal personal inti
macy, and my earnest condolence for his be
reaved and sorrowing family.
During this afternoon there were signs that
the body of president Garfield has commenced
to decompose, and it being understood in
such event it was the wish of Mr 6. Garfield
the face of her husband should be free from
public gaze, the Jlid of Jthe coffin was closed
by order of Secretary Blame this evening.
RUSH OF VISITORS.
Tens of thousands of visitors are coming
into Washington. Trains are loaded to their
fullest capacity, and follow each other in
quick succession on all roads, and the city
promises to be crowded about as much as on
inauguration day. Everybody wants tickets
of admission to the funeral ceremonies to
morrow afternoon and high prices are being
offered for them. Of course thousands must
be disappointed, as the rotunda will only hold
about 1,300, and tickets are all in the hands
of the family and relatives of the dead presi
dent and cabinet officers who will have seats
near the remains.
Back of these will be arranged scats for the
memb«rs of congress, judges of the sup r eme
court, high officers of the government and
their wives, and back of these seats for the
army and navy. Near the center of the rotun
da where the body lies a limited number of
seats for the reporters will be provided, and
these arrangements will occupy nearly all the
space, so that there will be but little room
left for others than these. The mem
bers of the church to which the late president
belonged applied through their pastor for 500
tickets to admit the entire congregation, but
it was out of the question to 6upply them
and oaly a few will get in. Altogether there
have been applications for about 5,000 tickets.
The Baltimore & Ohio railway officers tele
graphed to-day they will put a special train
with a sleeping car attached at the service of
the newspaper men going to Cleveland and
get there" one hour ahead of the funeral train
sent to the capitol are grandly beautiful and
appropriate. The wreath presented by Queen
Victoria, through the British legation, has
attracted much attention, and the expression
of sympathy on the part of the queen has
endeared her to America. The wreath is com
posed of white immortelles, veil roses on
bases of smilax, and the inscription is
"Queen Victoria to the memory of the late
President Gartfeld— an expression of her sor
row and sympathy with Mrs. Garfield and the
THE FACE OF THE DEAD PRESIDENT.
There is scarcely anything in the face of the
dead president to recall that manly, kindly
countenance which was so familiar to the peo
ple here. His long suffering reduced him to
*a mere skeleton, and his skin was discolored
and tightly drawn. In taking the plaster cast
of the face the lower jaw was forced down,
giving an unnatural expression to the face,
aud many who admired in life regretted that
they had looked at the corpse. Fully 10,000
viewed the remains last night and this morn
ing. At 8 o'clock the line w.is again formed,
and continued without intercession until 10
o'clock this eveniug. At It a. in. the line ex
tended from the east door of the capital to
"B" street, down the hill to the intersection
of Pennsylvania avenue at the west
gate of the capitol grounds an actual count
showed 4.564 persons in the line. They
passed in front of the co«i* at the rate of fifty
per minute, and at allowing one hour for one
standing at the end of the line to reach the
oast capitol door, at least 5,000 people viewed
the remains to-day.
The ventilation of the rotunda has not been
properly attended to and towards evening
the air became thoroughly vitiated.
Several fainted during the evening and
five members of the army of the Cumberland
on guard became 111, and were obliged to go
home. At 7 o'clock this evening the lid of
the casket was closed, and a further view of
the body denied to the public. Dr. Boynton
was delegated by Mrs. Garfield to request the
closing of the casket, as she was loth to have
people view with so painful an impression of
the face they had loved and honored. It is not
probable, therefore, the casket will be again
opened, so the people who will congregate at
Cleveland Sunday will be disappointed in their
expectations of again looking on Gen. Gar
Mrs. Garfield this evening received a dis
patch from her second son, James A. Garfleld,
who has been suffering from ague at Williams
college, that he will be well enough to start
for Cleveland to-morrow morning, where he
will meet the other members of the family.
President Ilayes went all through the White
house to-day, and was very much moved by
the recollection of his four years residence
there. He shook hands with all the employes.
He was present, accompanied by Senator
Sherman, when President Arthur was sworn
in to-day, and was the third
person to congratulate the President.
The presence of himself and Senator Shur
raan at the inauguration into the highest of
fice in the land,of the man they removed from
thecollectorship of New York about two
years ago, makes one oi the historical pic
tures of the present sad chapter in national
Business at the Executive mansion is pro
ceeding quietly, and correspondence is being
kept up under the direction of Brown, secre
tary to the deceased president, he having been
requested by President Arthur to continue in
charge of the executive offices for the present.
The day succeeding the death of President
Garfield the Equitable Life Assurance society,
of New York, forwarded to the appropriate
agent its check for the full amount of the
president's policy in that company, $25,000.
The bullet cut from President Garfield's
body at the autopsy was given to Dr. Bliss,
who imrrediately handed it over to Private
Secretary Brown, wlio carefully wrapped it in
a sealed package, and will preserve it until
such time as it may be needed in evidence at
the trial of Guiteau. The fractured vertebrae
is now in the hands of a scientific gentleman,
who is preparing it for exhibition in the an
atomical museum in this city.
NOT GOING TO CLEVELAND.
President Artlmr has decided not to accom
pany the remains to Cleveland.
In pursuance of an order of Secretary Hunt
announcing to the navy the death of President
Garfield, Admiral Nichols has directed that on
receipt of the official intelligence the junior
officer present shall on the following day
cause the ensign of each vessel under his
command to be hoisted at half mast from sun
rise to sunset and guns be fired by the vessel
every half hour from sunrise to sunset and
that the same ceremonies be observed at all

Washington, Sept. 22. — The cabinet
through Secretary Blame tendered their resig
nation to President Arthur at the cabinet
meeting at the capitol after President Arthur
was sworn tn. The act was accompanied by
an expression of the warmest sentiments of
personal regard and the President was given to
understand that the member& of the cabinet
desired to relieve him of all embarrassment
without regard to all past political events.
The president without formality, said that he
didn't accept the tendered res
ignations , and would esteem it
a personal favor if they would continue in the
discharge of their duties. The condition of
the public mind, in view of the recent great
national bereavement, warranted him in asking
this indulgence at their hands. Secretary
Blame assured the president that he could jde
pend on them to use their best efforts to tran
quilize the country, and aid him in the
performance of his duties in the present try
ing circumstances. It is understood, how
ever, that resignations have not been
FORMALLY DECLINED OR ACCEPTED,
but the cabinet will simply continue to dis
charge their duties until a more suitable time
for a decision of their retention. It
may safely be said that before
the close of next week a
proclamation will be issued by the president
calling the senate in executive session. The
time fixed will not be later than the 18th of
October. It is understood that the president
was averse to calling an extra session but has
yielded to the weight of senatorial opinion,
which has been freely expressed during yes
terday and to-day. In declining to accept the
resignation of the cabinet President Arthur
did not commit himself to anything definite.
He remarked that under the present distress
ing circumstances he could not be expected to
give his attention to national affairs except
such as demanded immediate consideration,
and therefore he could not give any thought
to the subject of selecting his advisers. His
request was that the present cabinet continue
in the discharge of their duties leaving the
question of their resignation until such time
as he can determine what is best for him
EXTRA SESSION AND SENATE
Senator Dawes called on President Arthur
to-day and strongly advised the calling of an
executive session. In conversation he pointed
out that no political result would
be effected by an early session,
for the senate is now Democratic, but it is no
more so than it will be in December. There
could be, in his judgment, no doubt that a
Democratic senator would be elrcted president
of the senate, and custom required a president
before any senator could "be properly sworn
in. It appeared to him almost as certain that
a secretary would be necessary to a proper
organization of the body, else no informal
record of the election of a president could be
had. The next business would be the admis
sion of the two recently-elected senators
from the State of New York and the successor
to Senator Burnside. Their admission will
constitute a question of the highest privilege.
With these added to the Republican side there
could net be any change in the committees,
even if the Democrats should desire to change
them, which is, in his judgment, not at all
likely. Neither party would peril its reputa
tion with the country by indulging in another
wraugle. Either would prefer to suffer a
wrong rather than to precipitate another
deadlock. With the presiding officer and sec
retary Democrats it would make no contest
for minor officers. These would probably be
conceeded the Republicans.
THE WHITE nOUSE.
President Arthur has decided not to reside
in the White house, at least for several
months, aud will continue to make Senator
Jones' residence his home. The senator's
family is on the Pacific coast and will not be
in Washington until January next, and Sena
tor Jones' residence has been accepted by the
president as his residence until that time, Sen
ator Jones remaining as his guest. The White
house will be thoroughly overhauled and re
fitted so far as to make It suitable for the
public offices of the president. President Arthur
will not again leave Washington, except pos
sibly to visit New York or Albany, until the
meeting of the senate. There is a great press
of purely routine business awaiting his action.
There are, besides, important appointments to
be made, in the army and navy especially.
There are seven vacancies on the retired list of
the former, and several in the latter service.
The vacancy on the supreme court is an ur
gent case for executive action.
The Funeral Train.

Washington, Sept. 22.— Mrs. Garfield with
her (laughter Mollie atid son Harry visited the
White house this morning to arrange for re
moval of her personal effects. She showed
signs of deep emotion upon entering the fa
miliar room and her eyes suffused with tears,
which she made brave efforts to restrain. The
mansion is draped all over in deepest mourn
ing and is one of the gloomiest spectacles in
the city. Policemen are stationed at every ap
proach and no person is allowed to enter
without a pass from the officers in charge.
Ex-President Hayes reached here last night
and ex-Speaker Randall this morning.
Washington, Sept. 22.— A meeting of

Ex-Speaker Randall stated Mr. Kassou and
himself had a long conversation with Secre
tary Blame and Senator Edmunds, and it was
thought impossible for members of the senate
and house, who desired to go to Cleveland, to
proceed on thCtraiu bearing the remains of
President Garfield. It had been suggested,
however, by Senator Edmunds, that each house
should appoint a committee to escort the body
to Cleveland, and that the other members
should follow on a special train. Mr.
Kasson stated Gen. Sherman had sug
gested no larger escort should be appointed
by the house and senate than could be ac
cominonated by one car. A committee con
sisting of Randall, Kasson and Townsend,
was appointed to meet a similar committee of
the senate to determine what action should be
taken in the premises. On return to the
chamber the committee reported it had been
agreed a committee of eight members be ap
pointed by each house to escort the remains
to Cleveland and that a special train should be
chartered to convey the other sen
ators and members to that place
and that ex-presidents Grant and
Hayes should be invited to accompany them.
On motion of Mr. Randall a similar invitation
was extended to ex-Speaker Banks and then
the report was agreed to. It was further de
termined members of the house should meet
in the hall of the house to-morrow at 2 p. m.
and attend the funeral. There will be space
in the rotunda set apart for their accommoda
tion and the sergeant at arms was instructed
to furnish each member with symbols of
mourning. By action of the meeting Mr.
Tucker was appointed chairman of the escort
ing committee. The other members are Kas
son, Randall, Hiscock, Wilson, Thomas,
Townsend and Shelley.
A meeting of members of the senate was
held in the president's room, Senator Anthony
presiding. The following senators were pres
ent: Anthony, Hale, Dawes, Edmunds, Mer
rill, Saulisbury, Bayard, Kellogg, Davis, (W.
Va.,) Camden, Sherman, McMillan, Garland.
Pugh, Morgan, Jones, (Nev.,) Blair, Mitchell,
and also ex-Senator Hamlin. The committee
of the conference reported that in conferring
with the house committee it was deemed best
to charter a special train for senators and mem
bers, aad such guests as they 6honld invite,
which report was accepted, and the sergeant
at-arms was instructed to make the necessary
arrangements. It was decided to postpone the
adoption of resolutions on the death of the
president until the meeting of the senate in
regular session. The chairman then announced
the following as the committee on the part of
the senate to accompany the remains: Senators
Anthony, Sherman, Bayard, Ingalls, Pugh,

Liverpool, Sept, 2L, 1881.— To the Secretary
of State, Washington : I beg to transmit to
you the following resolution passed at a pub
lic meeting of the inhabitants of this city,
held this day. I assure I have never known
deeper feeling shown by all classes in Liver
pool than on this mournful occasion. The
meeting was held in »he town
hall under my presidency as 'chief
magistrate, and it was crowded
to the utmost by our most distinguished
citizens. I cannot find words to express my
own sympathy both with the great American
nation and with the afflicted widow and family
of the late beloved president. All England is
pervaded with these inadequately expressed
sentiments of heartfelt condolence. It was

The Wretched Guiteau.
DREAD OF LYNCHING.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, Sept. 22.— District Attorney
Corkhill declines to express an opinion on the
subject of jurisdiction of the district courts
over Guiteau. He says, however, that he will
be brought before the grand jury, which meets
one week from next Monday, and indicted,
after which the question of trial will be final
ly settled. This morni ug the assassin made a
remark that he was feeling better than for
some time before, but evidently his talk was
bragadocio. He expressed a great desire to
have exercise, and asks for some paper
to write to a friend. It is
apparent that he is suffering as
much as it is possible for a man to suffer,
for he is fearfui at the least sound. On Gen.
Crocker making the usual inquiries of the
prisoner this afternoon, he answered that he
had slept well, and, continuing, said: "I de
mand and expect ample protection by the au
thorities. I want the guards doubled and the
strictest vigil kept. This I want until the
public mind has settled." He asked, "where
is President Garfi^ld's body now?" aud Gen}
Crocker answered that it was in the city. He
then wished to know if there were any crowds
of people in the city, and was told that there
were vast numbers of people here and more
coming. Guiteau hung down his head for a
moment and remarked: Well, it could not be
expected otherwise. After another pause he
said, "The greatest cause of alarm is from
strangers," and he again asked Senator Crock
er to use the greatest means for his protec
tion. When asked if he had selected a lawyer
yet he replied that he had not, but he would
want some one to assist him in the manage
ment of his case, and though he was a lawyer
himself, he would when the time came select a
first-classman. He was given an opportunity
to exercise to-day, but his health did not al
low it and he spent but little time in the cor
ridor. This afternoon he spent in writing to
a friend. This morning when one of the
guards was passing through, he noticed that
Guiteau's eyes were on his every move, show
ing that he is getting very suspicions of the
regular officers of the jail. *
TIIE QUESTION OF JURISDICTION.
There is still a wide difference of opinion
here among lawyers and even judges of the
courts as to whether Guileau must be ar
raigned for trial here or in New York. While
it is not at all likely that any counsel will
volunteer to defend Guiteau, and that it would
be a disagreeable duty to any lawyer, the
court will have to assign him counsel and it is
natnrally supposed that his lawyers will then
use every possible point in his de
fense. Guiteau's greatest fear evi
dently is that the jail will be
attacked to take him out. Should nothing of
this occiir he entertains some idea of escaping
with a light penalty if he can escape pupular
A legal point has been raised that will be
made in Mason's defense. It is that from the
position Guiteau occupied in his cell whin
Mason fired it was impossible for him to be
injured by the shot; that if it were it was im
possible to have carried out his intent to kill
Guiteau; that it is not enough for the accused
to have an intent to commit the offence, but
it requires in order to constitute a crime and
to secure conviction thereof, that the crime
was impossible of execution by the means
employed. In illustration of this point law
yers for the defense say, suppose that Mason's
musket had not been loaded, that
though he had supposed it to be and
pulled tho trigger after taking aim at Guiteau,
he could not be arraigned for attempted mur
der because he was unable to carry out his in
tent to kill. It is claimed that Mason is only
guilty of an infraction of military law, or
rules, and that he can only be punished for
that, that in short he might as well, as far as
conviction is concerned, have fired at an effi
gy of Guiteau. This will be the line of Mason's

Wade Hampton's Vietrs of Arthur.
Charleston, S. C, Sept. 22. — Senator
Hampton thinks President Arthur will follow
a conservative course, not only from his own
convictions, but because public opinion de
mands this of him. Should he do this I do
not see why there should be any shock to the
business interests of the country, and I have
strong hopes everything will move on smooth

and opposing those that do not. But in no
event shall I oppose him in a partisan manner.

Vienna, Sent. 22.— The proceedings of the
International Literary congress were disturbed
by a scene of confusion, caused by a French
delegate attempting to introduce an irrelevant
question, by proposing congress should peti
tion the czar to pardon a Russian Socialist,
Wuter, who has been an exile in Siberia for
the past eight years. The Russian delegates
declared if the petition should be adopted it
would be impossible for them to return to
Russia. After discussion a disorderly scene
of hisses and calls occurred. The American
minister presided. Resolutions of sympathy

Berlin, Sept. 21.— The chief points in the
demands put forward by the Vatican, pre
liminary to the understanding with Germany,
are abolition of the civil tribunal for ecclesi
astical causes, permission for expelled religi

stricted control by the clergy of religious
teaching in the schools. Germany is inclined
to consider each point as it arises, without,
however, accepting the demands. The flow
