F. IL H&rd, who wm Democratic
member of the last Congress, cam from
Toledo oi Sunday night and all day ye
terday he wai down town, traveling up
and down from bulletin-board to bulletin
board, studying the latest news and try
ing to draw conclusions from conflicting
toriea. lie talked in a very feeling man
ner on the step of the Astor Hous to a
"I sappose," he said, "that this is the
first time in my lif that I ever sympa
thized with James A. Garfield. We have
alway been opposed in politics; I sym
pathize with Mr. Conkling in the present
fight with the President, believing that
th President is wrong according to the
Constitution; yet my personal feeling
and regard for Garfield are such that I
feel his misfortan to be a personal woe.
He was so generous an "opponent so warm
and free and liberal in his relations to
his political foes; so considerate of the
feeling of younger members of the House,
at least while I served in the same body,
that no man could fail to admire and
love him. It happened once that I a
young member was called npon to close
on the Democratic side a debate, which
Mr. Garfield was to close the next morn'
ins on behalf of the Republicans. I felt
the responsibility; I was extremely anx
ious to make a reply which would do
credit to myself and not disgrace my
party; and I went to Garfield that night
and pointed out my dilemma. I did not
feel equal to the occasion of making an
impromptu response to a speech which
he waa- fully' prepared to make. Like,
the man that he is like a brother, I
might say he told me what ha was go
ing to say, the whole line of his argument,
and thus gave me the benefit of twenty-
four hours' study in which to reply to
him. You can understand my admira
tion, my love, my anxiety for that man."
"I stumped my State against him last
year," Mr. Hurd continued, but I never
once said "829" or Credit Mobilier.
James A. Garfield may have been misled
and deceived in that matter, but from
my knowledge of the man I feel that he
was never guilty of a dishonest or un
generous impulse." ,
"What is likely to be the course of a
new administration, if Mr. Garfield died?"
"A Democratic opinion would be of
little value," he replied. . "But I will say
this, that I think you newspapers are
greatly mistaken in your estimates of
Mr. Conkling. I lived at the same hotel
with him for years, and I found him un
Qbstrusive without being reserved, social
and pleasant, and there was nothing
about. him of the arrogance of temper
manent and conduct I see attributed to
AT PRESIDENT JACK
SOX X- .
How a Crazy Man Attempted to AssasS'
, : . toate "Olds Hickory.' .
Two serious public attacks were made
upon Andrew Jackson during the last
tour years of his Presidoncy, viz: those
by Lieut. Randolph and a man by the
name of Lawrence. And it is this last
to wbicn reference is ruaue as neing in a
remarkable degree similar to that made
upon President Garfield on Saturday, the
similarity existing not in the characters
or disposition of the two Presidents, but
in the character of the would-be assassins,
and their methods, The President and
his Cabinet were present in the Capitol
with official formality on January 30,
1833, to join both Houses of Congress and
a numerous body of -citizens in cere
monies held in honor of a deceased mem
ber of the Houso from South Carolina.
The usual ceremonies had been conclud
ed, and the' President accompanied by
Messrs. Woodbery and Dickson, had
crossed the great rotunda and were about
to step out on the portico when a man
emerged from the crowd and advanced
toward the President. When within
eight feet of him he drew a pistol and
aiming it at the President pulled the
trigger before he was aware of the man's
intention. By a myracle, apparently, the
cap missed fire, when the man drew
another pistol and attempted to fire it.
A second time the cap missed fire and
Jackson rushed at his assailant and dis
armed him. Unfortunately for Presi
dent Garfield the pistol of Guiteau was
sure and prompt and did its work more
effectively than did that of the assailant
of President Jackson. The man was at
once secured and he gave his name as
Lawrence. He conducted himself with
the same cool indifference that has
marked Guiteau 's behaviour since his ar
rest, and gave much the same excuses
saying ho was deprived of his employ
ment, and felt it incumbent on him to put
the President out ofthe way by assassin
ation, as he regarded the Presideut as the
cause of his own troubles and the politi
cal entanglements. The man was takqn
to jail and his history and connections
sought out when it was determined that
he was a lunatic on the subject and fixed
:u hid determination to kill the supposed
auther of the difficulties mentioned. . In
his cell he remained tranquil and un
concerned as to the final result. After
due legal and medical proceedings Law
rence was finally Committed' to an asy
lum. Miss Martineau, who was an oye
witness of the attempted assassination,
gives a graphic description of the affair
and its public effect in her "Retrospect
of Western Travel."
