Pkeridknt Arthur and the Secreta
ry of tho Interior have given their consent
that the Cblesgo, Texas & Mexican Central
nd St. Louis & San Francisco Kailroads
may apply to the Council of the- Choctaw
Nation, Indinn Territory, for the right of
way through the Nation. The Council is
now In session, and, it is understood, will
grant tho right of way to both roads, having
waited only for permission of the Govern
ment. It is now announced by Mr. Scoville,
counsel for Guitenu, that all questions of
Jurisdiction and malpnictico will be waived,
"itnd the defense tako their stand on the plea
or Insanity alone. This determination has
been arrived at because of the short time in
which they have to prepare for trial, and
because of tho discovery of Guiteau's appli
cation somo time ago for a pension. Gul
teait had never been In the army, and the
medical examiner indorsed upon the paper
It was stated on the 17th, apparently
by authority, that tho President had de
manded tho resignation of First Assistant
Postmaster-General Tynnr. It is known
' that Postmaster-General James has all along
desired to displace Tyncr with some one
more in sympathy with the Star-routo pros-
...rcutlons, and that Attorney-General Mac
Vcagh added bis influence In the same di
rection; but ailverso counsels prevailed in
tho Garfield Cabinet and prevented the
change being made. Frank Hatton, of tho
able successor of Tyncr.
Scoville, tho counsel for
Gulteau, fears that the advocacy of mob vio
lence by certain newspapers may result in
the assassination of tho prisoner at the trial.
Mr. Scoville appeals to the publle, in the in
terest of pat not ism, Justice and mercy, to
fiimish cIilencc of Guiteau's insanity. It.
T. Merrick, tho well known "Washington
lawyer, holds that Guitcau can not be le
gally tried for murder In the District, and
. will probably undertake tho defense of the
culprit so far as the question of Jurisdiction
is concerned. Tho Court has granted the
petition of the prisoner's counsel for an al
lowance to defray the expenses of witnessei.
J it or Jameson, of tho Chicago
Criminal Court, in a recent charge to the
Grand Jury called their attention to the II
linois statutes against buying nnd soli in
opt imis in grain or other commodities;
spreading falso rumors to Influence the price
of commodities, or "cornering" tho mar
ket or attempting to do so, tho pen
nlty for each of which offense Is fixed
at from $10 to $100, or Imprisonment in the
County Jail not exceeding one year, or both
The duty of tho Grand Jury, said tho Court,
Is not to seek iniiiisitorially for evidence
that such crimes have been committed, but
Uiould evidence bo brought, through tho
proper channels,beforc them, to act fearless
ly and promptly to vindie ite tho law.

An attempt was mado tho other night
to burn the Cunard steamer llothnla at her
t'.oek in New York City. Two men gained
access to the steamer on the pica of wishing
to pee a friend, an officer of tho vessel. At'
ter some timo they departed, and a few
minutes later lire was discovered in an ob
scurc passage, where the carpet had been
saturated with a very inflammable liquid
composed principally of kerosene and phos'
phorus. Traces of their work were subsc
