Scoville protested against this style ofargu

draw hi remark.
Porter "I hall not withdraw one word I
shall say upon this trial."
A number ot letter written by Gultcau since
his Incarceration were read by the District At
torney and were offered to dlsprovo the theory
oi insanity. Alter ine reading was conciuacu
Gultcau Inquired, "Whcro are tho rest of my
letters, Corkhlll, that you Intercepted! I think
the American people ought to know what a
miserable sneak you arc."
Bcovlllo questioned the witness (Reynolds)
Question Hao you nlway been on good
terms with the prisoner?
Gultcau shouted: "Yes, I havo always con
sidered hlra my friend, and h proved himself
a mean, dirty scoundrel. A nice record you will
have, Reynolds, to come sneaking Into my cell
to get information to hang me on."
Scoville pressed the witness closely and final
ly received an answer.
"Tho government paid mo for my expenses
while holding tl'.eso Interdews."
Gultcau How much!
Scoville Y u keen nulet.
Gulteau Well, then, ask htm how much he.

Scoville asked witness how much ho received.

pretty good. About f 30 a day for lying. That'
moro than Coiki.lll i urns, but then ho will get
his reward down below In the next world.

to make ono of bis little speeches. He said with
a chuckle: "I understand that General Rey

Geo. D. Barnard. Dcnutv Clerk of tho Su
prcmo Court of Kings county, N. Y., took the
stniid to piove the divorce of Anna J. Gultcau
from the prisoner. Witness presented the rec

The Court overruled the objections and ad-

The papers set forth the granting of absolu'o
divorce upon rue ground oi anuucrr, and no
answer havlnc been made ty defendant.
Gultcau, referring to the woman named, with
whom ho had committed adultery, said: "This
woman, Jennings, was a high-toned woman In
New York. It, was nurelv a matter of business
between us. I committed ndultery with her to

Dr. A . McLane, of Hamilton, N. Y., had made
the disease ot the mind and nerves a special
study for tbe past nine years. He made three
examinations of the prisoner at the Jail, and
had closely scrutinized him In court slnm thn

that tho defeneo will if necessary, use

A TIlAVCLEIt'S STATEMENT.
Washington, Dec. 20. Mr. Georgo Kennan,
of this city, who some years ago traveled 1000
miles or more up the river Lena, at which some
survivors of the Jratihcttn recently landed,
says: Where the Jcannette was lost Is 160
miles northeast of tbe Island ot New Siberia,
boo miloa from- tliciiirot part of the Siberian
mainland. After the fishing stations bad all
been abandoned the fishermen retreated up the
rivers to the winter villages. At tho mouth of
tho Lena thcro Is, I believe, n permanent settle
ment, and this sicins to liavu been tho appoint
ed rendezvoux for all tho boats. If the
third boat failed to reach the rendez
voux agreed upon, tbe conclusion by
no means follows that It Is lost Tbo
crew may have found an Inhabited station near
cr or bceu picked up by a Russian or native fish
ing boat and carried on miles from tho mouth
ot tho Ltna. It Is probable that Lieut. Do Long
after abandoning the ship made for tho nearest
point on tho Siberian coast, passing to the cast
ward and southward of the new Siberian Island
and striking tho mainland, between the mouth
of the Indlglrka and tho mouth ot the Lena. If
he reached the coast early enough in the sum
mer, ho ought to have found fishing stations at
tbe mouth of tho Yenn Indlglnkn and other
smaller streams flowing into the Arctic,
and thus have obtained succor much near
er than Lena It Is possible that he
might not havo reached the mainland until
guided to a smoother place of safety. In such
a caso they might not be beard from for.
month or more, after th arrival of the otho
boats nnd should not be given up as lost until
we have heard from all the villages along the
Yena and Inuglrka aud from Nizhni Kolyman,
which as a place of refuge, was quite as near
andqultaas accessible as the mouth of the
Lena The retreat ot these boats accross 300
miles ot Ice encumbered by the Artie Sea to tbe
Siberian coost Is a rcmnrkablo achievement,
paralleled In Arctic history only by tho retreat
o Barents and his men from tbo northern
extremity of Nova Zembla and ot
tbo crew of Tegctliort from Franz Josef
land. Tho fact that DeLong and his men were
three months at sea and on Ice In open boats
before they reached tho mouth ot the Lena, Is a
fact wht hot Itself tells a mournful story of
hardship and suffering, and moro than accounts
for tho pitiable condition In which the DeLong
crow at last arrived. The survivors would be
well cared tor at any settlement on tho Siberian
coast. They would find warm earth, embanked
"yourts," abundant clothing and food, and
sympathy and caro of warm-hearted, hospitable
people. As soon as "winter road" wns estab
lished and the crew strong enoujli to travel,
they would probably be brought up from Lena
on dog sledges to Yokoutska, a Russtan town
of 0,000 to 8,000 Inhabitant.
