has Issued tho followlnc proclamation:
It has long been the pious custom of our pco
plo with the closing of the year to look back
upon me Dressings orougnt u tnern in tnc
cuauging course of tue season and to return
solemn thanks to the All Giving Source from
whom tliey flow, and although at this period
when the falling leaf admonishes us that the
time of our sacred duty Is at hand our Nation
still lies lu the shadow of Us great bereavement
and mourning which has filled our hearts, still
finds us sorrowful beyond expression, toward
tho God before whom we but latelv bowed in
grief and supplication, yet the countless bene
fits which have been showered upon us during
the past twelve mouths, call for our fervent
gratitude and make It fitting that we should re
joice with thankfulness that the Lord In
his Infinite mercy has most slgnallv fa
vored our country and our people.
Peace without and nrosneritv within have
been vouchsafed to us. No nestllenee has
Visited our shores. The abundant privileges
of freedom which our fathers left us In their
wisdom are .till our Increasing heritage, and If
In parts of our vast domain rome affliction has
visited our brethren In their forest homes, vet
even this calamity has been tempered and a
manner sauctigca ny generous compassion for
the sufferers, which has been called forth
throughout our country. For all these things It
Is meant that the voice of the nation should go
up to God In devout homage; therefore, I,
Chester A. Arthur, Prcsidtmt of tho United

The annual renort of the Secretary nf the In

the Indian question. He strongly recommends
uiai iiDcrai provision be made by Uongrcss for
teaching the Indian youth our language. That
upon just terms to Indians the number and
area m tne existing reservations be greatly
reduced. That on such reservations as are not
well adapted to farming without Irrigation,
etforU be made to teach the Indians to become
herdsmen Instead of trying to make them
farmers; that the Indian title be reduced and

more timo to prepare the defense, which np
pcired not to meet with tho approval of Gut
tcau. All the time that. Robinson was speaking,
Gulteau was carrying on wnnt appeared to lion
remonstrance with Scovllle, who was appar
ently trying to quiet and suppress him. At the
rinse of lloblnson's speech dultcau Insisted on
being heard. Ho (aid he was not nwaro thnt
a noRlnonemcnt was to bo requested. He de
sired to bo hrnrd In his own behalf at the very
threshold of tho case. So far as he was con
cerned, he sal, ho didn't want any lurtncr
tl me ; ho was rcauy toirytnocosonow.
Owing to the opposition of Scovllle and the
prisoner to tho application of Robinson for an
extension of time, the Court stated that for the
present the case should proceed, so far, l least,
a. tho swearing ot the Jury was concerned,
and then would consider aquestlonof extension.
About il o'clocK tne worK oi ODtaiuing a
lurv was begun. The first three who presented
tuemscives were uisqunuucu, mu mi iuu Kruuuij
that they had formed fixed opinions on thorac
and the other on the ground of consclcntlou
scruples on the subject of capital punishment.
In examining tho Jurors Scovllle went over a
large ranee of questions as to their religious
ana political DCiiei. t ive jurors uavo uecn o'i
talned and sworn In. names and occupation as
follows! John P. Harlln, restaurant keeper;
Fred. W. Brandenburg, cigar-maker: Chas. G.
Stewart, flour dealer; Henry J. Bright, retired
from business; Thos. II. Langley, grocer. Tho
panel was exhausted after five Jurors bad been
obtained, and at the suggestion of tho District
Attorney an order was If sued for drawing scv-cntv-flvo
additional names from tho box.
Tho prisoner at this point slowly rose nnd In
formed the court that no would llko to mako n
speech to-morrow morning, but be was ordered
by tho court to take his scat. Ho then parsed
the manuscript of his speech to a newspaper re
porter, but before the lattir could leavo the
court room Scovllle called him back nnd com
pelled him to return It. This raised the anger
of the prisoner who excitedly declared that he
was uuder the control of his counsel; that ho
waa n lawyer and knew tho law himself; that
when ho wanted help bo would ask for It; and
ho desired his speech to bo published for tho
purpose of Influencing public opinion. He waa
again silenced by tho court, and It having been
agreed that the sittings of tho court should be
from 10 a. m. to 8 1'. m. dally, allowing half an
hour for recess, the court adlourucd.
In the speech which Gulteau had prepared for
delivery In court' to-day he says he U charged
with murdering one James A. Garfield. Noth
ing can be more abturd, becauso Gen. Garfield
died of malnractlce. Gen. Garfield wat a iiood

exclaimed, with a motion of his clenched list1
"I endorse every word of that, and I tell Koblu

Gulteau being made to resume his seat, Bco-
vllto added! "General Butler Is the choice ot

himself. It the matter I. to be continued, let

Scovllle Insisted that he would not go Into

The Court "No counsel can como Into this

Scovllle (resignedly) "Very well."
The court said the testimony would proceed,
and when I he prosecution was through lie would
glvo tlio defense necessary timo.
Wahuinotox, Nov. 15. Gulteau was hurried
Into the court room In custody of half a dozen
policemen and deputy marshals. Tho handcuffs
were removed nnd ho shook hand, with his sis
ter and brother and took tho scat reserved for
him between them and his counsel. Scovllle
then submitted nn aflldavlt nnd made applica
tion for an order for an additional nuinocr of
witnesses, which nrdir whs mado by tho court.
Then an additional panel of T.'i, summoned last
evening, was called, most of tho person, re
sponding when railed. Gulteau manifested
less nervousness nnd excitability than yester
day, although In his Hhlspered conversation
with his brother ho was quite demonstrative
and earnest In his manner.
A co'ocid barber, named Howard, was the first
Ju.or to bo called nndcxamlncd as to his lltu'
to serve. His answers showed hlin to be n till,
qualified from ecrvlec, but the defense challeng
ed hlin jieromptorlly, that being the fourth per
'1 lie next was a man named Lynch, who had a
decided opinion that Gulteau ought to lio hang
ed or burned. Ho was of course excused, as was
also the next (named Uallcy), who declared h:s
belief that dm tea u was crazy.
Tho next was a colored man, remarkable for
frilled shirt front nnd dramatic poituro and
manner, who related his past life, and then
there was another iiersmptory challenge by the
defense. In fact It la understood that Gulteau
resolved not to have a colored man on his Jury.
Tho next was an Irishman named Michael
Shechan, with a very pronounced broguo. who
had no opinion on the subject of GulteauM
crime except that "the man wus out ot his
head." lie was sworn In as tho sixth Juror.
Wm. Talboot, Iron-worker, having answered
all questions to tbo satisfaction of the defense
saying he had ''never bothered his head on tho
question of Gulteau's guilt," was challenged
peremptorily by tho prosecution.
Several others In succession were excused on
their MntcinentB I hat ther had firm nnd decided
opinions. One believed Gulteau ought to bo
hanged and another would require convincing
medical testimony to change his opinion.
A long faced joung colored man tininid Fos
ter declared ho was perfectly frco from auv
prcudlces In tho matter, but he had mentioned
the murder of aarficld to several parties ns
quite n serious accident. Ho was challenged
peremptorily by tho defense.
Samuel F. Uohb, a natlvo of Mai viand, n
plasterer by occupation, was sworn as tho
G. W. Yates, n young man ot Washington, a
machinist, was sworn us tho eighth Juror.
After tint, for about an hour, every man
called confessed that he had formed an opinion
or had decided mi unalterablo opinion on the
qucitlou of thu prisoner's guilt, and were ex
cused. There was an exception In the person of
Ralph Worinlcy, n plasterer by occupation, who
thought ho cou d render a fair verdict, nndtald
that ho had nut read any moro about the rase
than he did In ordinary cases of thatklnd. He
did not believe everything he read in the news
papers, because they had published things
about himself that were not true. He could
not say whether tho President was shot by the
prisoner until ho would hear tho testimony
Of course, it nn Insane mail did the shooting,
ho would bo us mucn guilty, us the crazy part
ot business In eomctnlug else. No teiibible
man could hure dona bucIi a thing. After n
consultation between counsel nnd prisoner aud
his brother, Scovllle said tlio defenso would ac
cept hlin as a Juror, and so Wormley was sworn
iu un u mum jurur.
Tho list of eevcuty-flvc talesmen having been
exhausted, thu Marshal was ordered to sum
mon another list of seventy-live tmorrow, nnd
Washington. Nov. 16. Tho Court was called
to order, and during tho calllug of the names ot
the Jurors the prisoner was brought lu. Ills
appearance was wild and excited. He tossed his
hat upon the desk before him and, turnlnc to
ward his biotbcr-ln-law Scovllle, hurriedly
whispered something to him In an cxtromlv

tho violin has tho greatest latent possi
bilities; it mayalmost bo said to possess
"a soul." Ono doos not wonder at tho
passionato lovo felt for it by all tho
groat violinists; tho most barbaric peo
plo possossod it In its rudimontal form,
nnd drew sympathetic sound from some
rosonnnt board. It is easy to under
stand its charm, for tlio harmony it
produces is only by direct communica
tion botwoen tho performer and tho
strings. It is tho human touch upon
tho chord which makos tho tono so
human, and which carries, as it woro,
tho very spirit of tho porformor into tho
outer atmosphere. Thero is no emotion
that cannot bo expressed by it from tho
agltatian of tho passionato hoart. It is
tho divino quiot of restful aud contented
lovo. It is curious that this, tho most
musical of all instruments, should havo
boon pcrfcotod by tho least musical of
people, for thero appoars to bo no doubt
that it was tho oldest English instru
ment, and that tho modern name of
violin is but an adaption of' tho old En
