GENERAL KlllKll'8 LIST NOT TO BE ANNOUNCED

Washington, Dee. 7.?The Committees of the
House of Repre-cntatives will not be announced be
fon* next Tuesday. The selection of members tot
the ditiVi.iit ','tiiiiiiiitt"t'S is a subject of great an?
xiety, n.it only ti. Speaker Keifer, upon whoa the
immediate resiionsibility devolves, hut to a)! tin'
members of the BOOOB, for personal as well as party
reasons, and to thoiurhtiul Republicans who are
mindful of ?arty interests. The Republican ma?
jority in 111.? House is not a larire one, ami the fact is
generali., reeogniae?' that any atstaks committed
may result in a Deiuoeratic majority in the next
Flout?*?, win. h will be elected less than a year
hence. While there is no doubt th_t
General Ktifer ftillv appreciates tins
fa. t. it is at tho same time true that he
is earnestly beoooghi to make appointments which,
in the must charitable view, could not, be looked
upou as likely to serve the interests of the coifiitry
or to strengthen the Republican party.
There is no doubt the Speaker feels under ln'avy
obligations to the friends and interests which ele?
vated him to his high oft'ice, or thai be will do what
he can consistently with his own judgment as to
what is best for the couutry to repay those obliga?
tions. His best frientls hope that he will not be in?
duced to do more than this. Nevertheless, lie is
subjected to enormous pressure in behalt uf certain
member.?., who appear to be very confident that their
wishes in regard to places on certain coiinnitiees
will be regarded, but whose assignment to such com?
mittees would not be generally regarded as fortu?
(?eneral Keifer spent a larire portion of to-day
in his room at the Capitol, where be was beseiged
for hours bv ana sabra anxious to see nie good plates
on desirable committees, and bv other applicatifs
for official favors. All reports respecting the chair?
manships and membership ot different committee*.
are thus far s|km ulativ? merely. It is generally be?
lieved, however, bjf tbose whose opportunities to
obtain information are excellent sod whose judg?
ment is good, that .Indue Kelly will be chairman ol
the Committee of Ways and Means; Mr. Hiacock,
of Appioi nations; Mr. Bead, of Maine, or Mr Bob?

correspondent of Representativo Atkins of Tennes?
"I have not read tho whole of it, butas far as ?
have reati I have found it a lucid, modest, states?
manlike document. I was gwall? pleased to find
that Giant had not been able to ?rive it a bloody

think that Arthur means to bo President himself
and uf the whole country."
" What do you think of his recommendations re

" I think I am with the President there, at least
eo far as miking | polrgSBSOOl wife a competent

Jones, of Texas, will roeiKn his seat in the House
before the expiration of his present term in order to
become au independent candidate tor Governor
against Governor Roberts, the pr?nent incumbent,
whose renomination is said to be assured. Mr. Rob?
erts was President of the Secession Convention
which deposed the Union Governor, General 8am
Houaton, in 1&?1. Bepreeenutivo Jones was ori_i

propowd th'? plan which i? nos? to he attempt/??!.and
that thev further proposed in the event of General

of Texas should support him. The plan was relin
?imslied on the defeat of General Grant fa th? vOR
vention. and has Leen allowed to remain in ahey
ance until the present time.
It is not probable that Mr. Jones will rsS-fD before

the assassin stated that he was "n??t satisfied
with the political situation as ?levelope?!," and
expressed dissatisfaction because th?? defence
had not been permitted to call President Ar?
thur, General Grant and Messrs. Conkling and
Platt, " who were so down upon GurhVld that
they would Dot speak to him on the street."
Mr. Seoville stated that he had r??-?iv?'?l no
replies to the written interrogatories sent to
President Arthur. The prose??utinn, in relmfc
titl, called a number of the prominent citizens
of Frecport, 111., who testified to their in?
timate ai'quaintanccship with the annasHin'e
father, and ?kclare?l their belief in his perfect
?Baity, which they never heard questioned
until afler July 2 last. General Sherman was

demolished tin? first of the series of hypotheses

The numerous publications that have basa made
on the subject of fiuiteau's relati ves BENTS undoubt?
edly created a general impression that there was a
spoetai predispo-itioii to insanity in the Guiteau
blood, w hieb, while it would not necessarily render
tin- BSSSSSBa irresponsible, would BOOOant for many
of his actions, on the ground of a distorted intellect.
The testimony taken to-day must be reiiarde?! as
having swept away uit?'rly tho claim that Luther
W. Guileau was insane. If Giuteaii is insane, he
certainly did not get his insanity from his father.
He must have inherited it from some of his sistola
or his cousins or bis aunts.
The prosecution put upon the stand to-day tea
citizens of Frecport, 111., all of whom seemed to be?
long to the class of men who would lead in the af?
fairs of their city. The professional ami official po
-iti m baldbpa number of them proved lhat they
came from tlrs class. Most of them were silver
haired old men, w ho had known Luther W. Gnitoatt
all their active lives. One was th" present State
Senator from that district, who wa- CbMtsS J. Gui
teau's school teacher in his boyhtKitl ; one was the
Btats Attorney for Stevenson County, in which
Fieeputl is situated; one ha?i been for a time the
family physician; one was the e?lilor of The Freer
port byaMiesa ; one was a Jnstice of the peace, and
others were farmers, merchants, etc. All of thoae

them who was nucstionod on that point had even
heard lb it he was suspected of being otherwise
until after the assassination. All of tin in spoke of
him in terms of high admiralion fur his character
and abiliiy. Their testimony showed that the elder

" Be BJC*, any offles he wanted,'' said a i'uaint old
citizen, named Horace Tarbox. who ih-ii ?...?.I hu.itielf
,?? " a trader, ? dealer in land ami general s|s'cula
!or.'' When Mr. Tarbox was iSa-Sd whether he
ever saw any siirn of mental unsonudness in Luther
Qoitean he looked Usd-SfasB ami nattered rather
than said, "He had as good a head .n. him as any
Stan is the State." Afterward, m sp? akmg of his
sbiUty, be said he waa "the third be.-; man in the
ci'iiniy." Who was the first," cried th? a-sa.ssin ;
unti when Mr. Tarbea had named tbe second, as
well as the first, Oaiteau said with a (ria, "Thesa
men art- bold .1. id ; so my father was ale-ad."
One of tIi.as witnesses related that SB OBS of the
sehool baUdraga ra ftesyot*? waa baseribed wish the
nasse ef Lather W, Ooiteaa, la BskBovrle?RRsRBl of
his servit es to ihe schools, and is tall ?.! lb- (iuiteau
BoildlBg to-day. AD the witnesses reiterated with
all possible ptssiiiveness their ballai that he had
Derer exhibited any sign of mental unsound?
bowever slight, ami some ot them
ha.l known hi ui forty years. To
appr?ciait' the full forco of this evidence, n moat be
rememl?ercd that the elder Gualcati died only last
year, ami that most of these men hail retnaintHl his
close friends lo the end, ami some hail wa' shsd with
brat even 'ii his hist illness. The theory" which Mr.
Seoville fried to bring out in cross-examination, and
which tin assassin himaelf blun?y stateti several
limes, was thai the elder Guiteau was pert -elly sane
in all his business relatious, but had a c?mplele and
wi ll-tlev.'l ipetl re'iitio-.ia insanity, whieli bs BBBS
fully reserved for use ui his home tin Ie. Mr. Sco?
vili? also seemed to be trying to impress the jury
with the feel thai the father of th. ????????? lia?!
never been able to succeed in busin? ss for himself,
but hail almost always held an office Sf salari???! po?
sition of some kind. He did not attempt, however,
to provo that all postmasters and bank cashi?irs
are insane. It ought to be added that, for a lawyer
vMtli.iiil previous criminal experience. Mr. Seoville
does remarkably well, aud has, mortovi,, the sym?
pathy of every person in the court-rooia in lus ?iia
tressing situation, which is not made any easier by
the snarling ingratitude o? nis gracidi SB brother-in
law, who rewards all tho kindness of his relatives
with abuso and complaints.
Xhstt was another point of importance in to-day's
evitlenee. This was that no one of thes?? witnesses,
Basato! whom knew all branches of the Guiteau
family in Frecport, had ever known any of them to
be believod insane. While on this subiect there was
a patatal episode. Mr. Seoville, for ??mio reaeon,
asked Dr. Iluekley. the fiunily physician, whether
he hail not known of preparations being made at one
urne to scud Flora Guiteau, the half-sister of the
assassin, to an insane asylum. The d?>cfor replied
that ho had not, and Mr. Seoville then dropi?ed
tho subject. uoceasarUy leaving the impression that
this young lady, who is now a teacher in Free port,
and is very highly respected there, bed been at one
timo insane, John W. Guiiea.i sprang to hie
feet, tho blood mantling his cheeks, and
protested against leaving this terrible stig?
ma on the young girl, asking the prosecution,
to elicit the precise nature of his sister's illness,
Colonel Corichili witnuiineceaeary ooaraenees caught
at this and accused Mr. Seoville of attempting to
eiuirch tho lady, whioh couveyed an oAuncotLax aas
