who is not for law and order is againsl

in tho Nugget yesterday morning
.cannot be oonstrued otherwise than
as an endorsement of the lawlessness
that begot tho attempted assassina
tion of the "mayor of Tombstone

are not fools. They will mark these
things down on the tablets of their

vote will not elect next November
as it did last. This fact may as well
be accepted now as later. Tho next

of safety to life and protection to

his countrymen of being an astute
diplomate, a scholar and a man of
great wealth. Ho is about fifty-four
years of "ago. The minister expresses

George D. Barnard, deputy clerk
of the Supremo court of Kind's

prove tho divorce of Annio J. Guiteau
from tho prisoner. Witness present

order of tho judge for his, witness's,
Scoville objected to the admission
of tho papers upon tho ground that
they wero not certified to by the
clerk of tho court, as renuirrd by an
act of congress.
Tho court ovenuled the objection
and admitted the testimony.
Very greatly to the disgust and
displeasure of Guiteau, Mrs. Anne J.
Dunniger, tho prisoner's former wife,
was called to tho stand, and Guiteau
raved liko a madman and appealed
in vain to the court not to permit
the witness to testify. Ho threatened
to rip her whole character if she at
tempted to testify against him, and
declared repeatedly that it was an
infamous shamo on the part of Cork
hill to drag her into the case. Much
to the surpiso of all Corkhill asked
witness only a few questions. Her
statement in reply was, "I never saw
any signs of insanity in the prisoner
while 1 lived with him as his wife."
Dr. Francis B. Loring, of Wash
ington, physician in charge of the
Eye, and Ear Infirmary, made an ex
amination of Guiteau's eye soon after
his arrest, and did not find an indica
tion qf disease of the brain.
Dr. MoLane Hamilton, of Now
York, had mado diseases of tho mind
and nervous diseases a special study
for tho past nino years. Witness
had made three examinations of the
prisoner. Ho found from accurate
measurements that tho prisoner had
a symmetrical and exceedingly well
shaped head. Witness found no ex
ternal evidenco of any mental or
physical disease on the prisoner. He
considered him an eccentric man.

Blaine's instructions to Minister
Lowell at London relative to the de
sired modification of the Clayton
Bulwer treaty, wero sent to Congress
to-day. In effect they claim that the
United States' should have control of
the isthmus canal; that the treaty
forbids us to fortify or defend it by
military force; that the naval power
of England would enable her at short
notice to take possession of both
ends of the canal, to the detriment
of our commerce. The treaty should
therefore be modified on tho follow
ing basis: Tho clause forbidding the
United States to fortify and control
the canal in connection with tho
country in which it is located, should
be cancelled; tho clause in which the
United States and Great Britain
agree to make treaty stipulations for
the joint protection of the canal has
never been perfected, and should be
declared obsolete; the clause defin
ing the distance from either end of
the canal at which captures on the
high seas may bo mado by either
power was left incomplete, and has
never been determined; tho distanco
could bo dotormined on a liberal

there was a possibility that the $650,

this country, wasjnttended as the first

because o'L th silver 'Sill, anil the
prosperity which hasu(fepeded sjnee
Is directly due to the cnlhge in val
ues which the silrer bill,, wrought. In
our judgment the answer to tho fear
that Europe will unload her silver
upon us is: "Let her unload if she
can stand it." The attempt would
bankrupt every country of Europe
except Great Britain, and would
make even Great Britain very sick
financially. Tho treasury of the
United States can hold silver enough
to be equal to six or seven dollars
per capita foi the people, and when,
as is now the case, almost all the in
ternal commerce of the country is
carried on by paper money and silver
coins, what docs it matter whether
the guarantee which is behind the
paper is gold or silver? A distin
guished writer on political economy
recently called attention to the fact
that tho purchasing power of gold
had fallen off eight per cent within
three years, and from it he reasoned
that speculation was rife, that there
was a dangerous inflation in business.
The truth is that the remonetization
of silver took the inflation out of
gold, and by lifting up silver to tho '
place from which it had been wrongly
thrown down, every article of com.
merce was lifted al the same time, or
rather gold was made to seek again
its real level. Of the two metals
silver is the sovereign, and the nation
which forgets this fact always suffers.
Silver is more naturally the money of
the poor, it is steadier in value and
more steady in its supply, and, what
is tho sovereign argument, the busi
ness of the United States demaiids
all of both metals that can possibly!
A lley'H Composition on Fall.
From Cln lnnttl Saturday KlgM
Here is a boy's composition on
Fall: This is fall, because it falls on
this season of the year. Leaves fall,
too, as well as thermometers and the
price of straw hats. Old topers who
sign the pledge in summer, are liable
to fall when the lull cider-making
opens, for straws show which way the
cidW gdes. Husking "corn Is bne of
the pleasures of tad, but pleasures
isn't good for boys, I don't, think.
Old men want a little fun; let the
husk. A husky old man can go
through a good deal of corn, some
times. Digging taters is another of
our fall amusements. The way I
like to dig taters is to wait until they
are baked nicely, 'and then dig them
out of their skins. Most wintar
schools are open in the fall. The best
winter school 1 ever went lo didn't
open until spring, and the first day
it opened the teacher took sick and
the school house was locked up for
the season. Once in a while we
have a very severe fall, but nothing
like tho fall of Adam and Eve in the
Garden of Eden. Summer is mis
named. It should be called Pride,
tor doesn't pride go before a fall?
