lollccmnn Kearney of tlio Island Pre
cinct who nnosted tlio assassin makes tho
following statement of tho shooting Gul
teau arrived at tho depot nbout an hour
nhendof tho Presidential party and moved
nbout and nctcd qulto restless Tho
officers attention was attracted by
his movements but ho did not watch
tho assassin particularly until ho heard him
nsk a hackmau nt tho Sixth street depot If
ho could drivo him off
In a Hurry IT Itrqtilrcil
I thought said Kearney that that was
a peculiar thing but beforo 1 could follow
it up clo or I saw
Tlic IrPHltlriitN Iuit y
driving down Sixth street to tlio depot and
I had to go nud look after them They
drovo to tho 1 stieet entrance
Secretary lllalno was with tho President
and tho two entered tlio depot together
Tlio President walked up to mo and
nsked how much ttmo ho had beforo tho
train left It was 20 minutes after I saw
by looking nt my wntch and I told tho
President that ho had ten minutes Just as
ho thanked mo
I ircnrtl n IMhIoI Shot
and turning I saw tlio man that I had been
watching previously standing about ten
feet away in tho shadow of tho main en
trance to tho waiting room leveling his
pistol across his arm Ho
rircil ii Necoml Hliot
beforo I could speak to him and darted be
tween myself and tho President and Secre
tary lllalno info tho street Tho President
reeled and
IVH Just In lront ofMc
as ho full ho said something that I cuuld not
exactly understand and Secretary Blaine
With u TorrllUil Look
pushed toward him exclaiming
My Joil JIo lins been Murdered
What In the Meaning orThlft
I did not stop longer hut ran out nftcr tho
assassin and arrested him just ns ho started
across 11 street toward Sixth
In UodN Nnnio Mini
I shouted What did you shoot tho
President for and his answer was
I am it Nlitluitrt mill Want Arthur
for President
Ho still carried his pistol in his hand It
was a largo California revolver of largo cali
bre with a bone handle Ho appeared per
fectly cool and oflered not tho slightest re
sistence but went quietly to Polico Head
quarters with me
WHO GUITEAU IS
What Col Ingersoll Says of
nim
HIS INSANITY FEIGNED
Colonel Robert G Ingersoll told
Tiik Critic reporter that ho know
tho assassin well and had always regarded
him ns a quiet sober and ratio man Ho
has no spcciul profession but bus been nn
office holder and ofllce seckcr Col Inger
soll is of tlio opinion that his Insanity is
feigned
THE ACT PREMEDITATED
Jullcim Waiting for a Chance
Tho assassins rewltilion to murder Presi
dent Garfield was perfectly Intended by tho
close watch ho kept upon tho movements of
his Kxcolleucy for tho past fow days Air
Urooko IXirrell of tho Treasury Depart
ment immediately recognized him as identi
cal with a man whom ho had seen
IIiiukIiik Aliout tho Neighborhood ol
tlio White House
for some tlmo past and tho policeman at
tho depot Olllcer Pat Kearney who ur
inated Guiteau says ho has noticed him sus
piciously lurking about tho depot and
Sixth street for three days past watch
ing tlio carriages nnd vehicles us thoy ar
rived or departed with a keenness that
looked as if ho meant business of some
character
AMOTIIERACCOUiT
STATEMENT OF ANOTHER EYE
WITNESS
As tho Piesidont entered tho ladles wait-lug-room
of tho llaltimoro Potomac depot
ho was shot twico through tho luck pos
sibly fatally by a disappointed office seeker
Chas aultctiu of Chicago Ho fell to tho
floor and tho first to reach him was
Mrs Sarah 11 White lady in clutrgo of tho
ludieB waiting room who saw tho President
enter and tho ninn raisa his hand and lire
She was about 20 foot from tho President
when shot Very few woro lu tho waiting
room and no ono immediately with tho
Prcstdcut Secictary Illaiuo who was fol
lowing tho President Raw tho shooting
hut declined to glvo n statement
until ho makes an official one Sirs White
raised his head and was holding him when
Ids coloied servanst camo up and relieved
her saying Oh my poor Mr President
Then Secictary lllalno and others camo up
and tho President was carried upstairs and
Dr Townsliend who wns tho first doctor to
Arrive proceeded to administer lcstoratlves
nud enro for him
Mr V II Poss who was very clow but
did not sco tho shooting was tho first to

Mr Puss says that ho saw tlio assassin
holding a letter In his hand and wns told
thnt a newsboy got tho letter which was
addrc3scd to Senator Sherman saying I

IonHnir About tho Depot
Mrs White says sho has several tlmesseen
tho assassin waiting about tho depot and
nlwnys seemed excited nud nbout a week

ho ovldcntly seemed to bo waiting for
somo ono nnd to day ho was walking
about tho waiting room nbout hulf nn
hour beforo tho President Clinic Tlicro
was no altercation nor conversation between
tho President and his assassin so that It is
evident it was a premeditated cold blooded
assassination Mr White says Guiteau has
a full face
THE PRESIDENT REMOVED TO THE
WHITE HOUSE
At Ten Twenty
tlio llcsideut was removed from tho de
pot to tho ambulance and convoyed to the
White House Tin Critic wns standing
in tlio entrance as tho still breathing body
of tho President was carried out
Tho fico was as blanched as that
of a corpse tho eyes dead
closed nnd that peculiar half languid half
nervous twitching of the muscles indicative
of internal bleeding Postmaster Ainger
who wns present nt tho shooting said
in tho body passed by I havo been in
many a battle and havo seen many men
mortally wounded and never a ono with
a fuco that more clearly showed certain
death than tho Presidents
A REVENGEFUL ACT
Jul lean Iormcrly Consul and Kit

seilles during tho last administration hav
ing been appointed through tho influence of
General Logan When this administration
camo into power ho was recalled at tho de
sire of Secictary Blaine nnd nomo charge
that lu his deperatlon ho revolted to tho

was conveyed to tho room Tho
Colonel tenderly nsked him how ho felt
and tlio President responded
I feel as strong as would bo expected
under tho circumstances but I have a pe
culiar sensation in my foot
This somo of tho physicians say is a bad
foreboding
