CHIEF MAGISTRATE. THE NATIONAL HOLIDAY A
DAY OF SORROW AND
DAY OF SORROW AND SADNESS.
Nsts Office, Tuesday Morning, )
July s 6 o'clock. j
Since our last issue the shadow
of a f teat and appalling calamity Las
fHea upon our Nation. For the sec
ond time in our history has the hand
of a murderous assassin stricken
down our Chief Magistrate without
a moment's warning. At the time
we write, 6 o'clock Tuesday morning
we know not whether this second
attempt has resulted as disastrously
as did ih.t first, but fear that such is
tie terriile truth. The last dispatch
es received here from Washington,
last night, left but little ground for
hope of any other than a fatal result
About 9 o'clock an official bulletin
fcora the White House, signed by
Surgeon General Barnes, brought the
sad tidings that the President could
not live beyond midnight, and the
last dispatch received here at n
o'clock, was to the effect that his
symptoms were but slightly changed,
and gave no assurance of any change
for the better. We fear that the
orst has happened, and that our
beloved President has fallen, as did
his lamented predecessor, the mar
tyred Lincoln, a victim to the deadly
bullet of a miscreant, whose crime is
only paralleled in enormity by the
foul deed of the assassin, Booth,
Nevertheless we fervently trust and
cray that we may be mistaken, and
we will not even yet abandon the
hose, slieht as it is, that President
Garfield's strong constitution, the
skill of his physicians, the tender
care of his devoted wife and friends,
and his strong and courageous
will to recover, may bring him
through the terrible ordeal and re
store him to a grateful people. The re
suit is in His omnipotent hands who
governs alike the destinies of men
and nations, who cannot err, and
whose mercv endureth forever. To
His will let us reverently bow, con
tiding in his boundless love and un
erring wisdom, and feeling assured
that he will overrule this great ca
lamity to the good of our afflicted
country,
II now becomes our sad duty to
give our readers a brief history of
the terrible event which has so sud
denly cast the dark shadow of sor
row and mourning over our land,
nd has sent a shock throughout the
whole civilized world.
About half past 9 o'clock last Sat
urday morning, the President, ac
companied by Secretary Blaine, and
several other members of his Cabi
net, was about to leave Washington
for a visit to Williams College, New
Hampshire, where he graduated.
As he stepped from his carriage, and
was entering ihe depot of the Balti
more & Potomac R. near Pennsyl
vania Avenue, walking by the side
of Secretary Elaine, he was suddenly
shot from behind by an assassin,
named Charles Guitteau, who fired
twice in quick succession, the first
ball striking the President's right
arm, the second entering his back,
just above the right hip. He fell
forward to the floor, but was instant
ly raised by Secretary Elaine and
others, placed on a mattress and
carried to an upstairs room
in tne cepwi. iutuu.u u
was instantly summoned, and
soon obtained, and everything was
done to make the sufferer as com
fortable as possible until he could be
removed. In about half an hour af
ter he was placed in an ambulance
and driven to the White House. The
.r-;-i was arrested by the depot
r'ecca, isuaediately after firing j
9 Ei3W, Kad sfely lodged in jail,
where he was guarded by a strong
force of military and police.
The news of the terrible event
spread rapidly through the city, and
soon Pennsylvania Avenue, and the
streets around the White House
were filled with an excited crowd,
who eagerly waited to hear the la
test tidings of the President's condi
tion. The telegraph meantime sent
the shocking intelligence through
out the country and across the ocean,
and in a few moments after the ter
rible event occurred it was known to
millions of sorrowing and sympathiz
ing hearts, who anxiously waited
for later intelligence. The first dis
patches gave hopes that the Presi
dent's wounds were not mortal, and
a great feeling of relief was exper
ienced by all, but in a few moments
this was followed by other dispatch
es, that he was rapidly sinking and
could not live two hours, which filled
all hearts with sorrow and gloomy
forebodings.
Below we give some of the dis
patches, in the order they were received:
CONDITION OF THE PRESIDENT.
Washington, July 2 11 130 a. m.
The condition of the President is
very much improved-. Immediately
after the shooting his pulse went
down to thirty-three, a,nd his face,
as he was removed to the White
House, was of an ashen hue. His
pulse has now recovered to sixty-
three, and the color is returning
somewhat to his face.
FAVORABLE SYMPTOMS.
His general symptoms, moreover,
denote a very considerable improve
ment. It is not thought wise to
make any further attempts at pres
ent to withdraw the bullets, and it is
difficult to determine, until a thor
ough examination is made, how seri
ous the internal injuries may be.
Surface indications, however, give
good ground for hoping that the
President will rally.
THE PRESIDENT SINKING.
Washington, July 2 2:40 p. m.
Dr. Beckwith, an old physician of
the President, says President Gar
field has but few chances of recovery
and that he may not live two hours.
The general impression at the Exe
cutive Mansion is that the President
is sinking.
THE GRAVEST FEARS ARE FELT.
Executive Mansion, July 2 2:45
p. m. No official bulletin has been
furnished by Dr. Bliss since one
o'clock. The condition of the Pres
ident has been growing more unfa,
vorable since that time. Internal
hemorrhage is taking place and the
gravest fears are felt as to the result.
HIS CONDITION AT 3:30.
Washington, July 2 3:30 p. m.
At three o'clock Colonel Corbin tel
egraphed to ex-Prefiidenf'Hayes as
follows : M President's pulso up to
1 28. Chances of rocovery grow more
and more remote. Doctors offer no
encouragement."
At this writing, however, the Pres
ident's pulse has fallen to 112, and
he seems to be resting a little easier.
Lie has been suffering most excruci
ating pain all day, bnt has borne it
manfully. His senses- have not at
any time deserted him, and he rec
ognizes his friends who enter the
room. He is lying in his own cham
ber, in the right wing of the house.
Abont the White House grounds
is gathered an immense concourse of
people, eagerly awaiting news from
within the house. Members of the
Cabinet, physicians and members of
the press alone are admitted. In the
grounds two companies of soldiers,
one of in fun try and one of cavalry,
from the Arsenal, are encamped, and
will remain all night. Mounted po
lice officers patrol the avenue, and a
double guard iaj placed at each end.
There is much excitement, but it is
of a subdued character. The eager
ness of the crowd for news is shown
whenever one leaves the house. He
is immediately surrounded by a score
or more, and can hardly force a pas
sage through the anxious ones.
THE WORST APPREHENDED.
Washington, July I, b:4U p. m.
The President is under the influence
of morphine, and consequently suf
fering much less pain than he was
earlier in the day ; but that his con
dition is critical in the extreme can
not be doubted. He will scarcely
survive an hour nnless some almost
miraculous change takes place in his
condition very soon.
The engine of the special train
which is bearing Mrs. Garfield to
Washington, broke a piston rod at
Bowie, but another engine has been
sent to her, and the delay will not
be great
The following telegram was sent
at 6 p. m.:
M Hon. Chester A. Abthcr, Vice-
President, New York City : At this
hour (six o'clock) the condition of
the President is very alarming. He
is losing his strength, and the worst
may be apprehended.
"JAMES G. BLAINE,
"Secretary of State."
VERY LOW AND SURELY SINKING.
p. ir.
President is very low and sinking ;
pulse 150, but conscious. His phy
sicians say he can not live more than
two hours. Mrs. Garfield arrived
an hour ago.
His lower extremities are already
cold.
AWAITING THE END.
MRS. GARFIELD'S ARRIVAL—ALONE WITH
HER HUSBAND—AFFECTING SCENES.
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE ENQUIRER.
Washington, July 2 8:30 p. m.
All this afternoon and evening the
grounds in front of the Executive
afansiou have been crowded with
people, anxiously awaiting any an
nouncement from the inside as to
the President's condition. At eight
o'clock it was announced to tho
throng that he ws very low. Mrs.
Garfield at that Lour was alone with
him, expecting Liui to pass away mo
mentarily. Theavennoin front of
th Treasury Department, from the
Fiiggs House into the White House
grounds and in front of the mansion,
is crowded with people. Mrs. Gar
field arrived about seven o'clock, and
as she was' driven up through the
crowds of sympathizing people, many
of them uncovered their heads as the
carriage in which she rode passed
by. Entering the Executive Man
sion she, with her son, who met her
at the depot, went directly to the
bedside of the dying President.
Others who had constantly been at
bis bedside during the day, left them
alone. It is impossible at this writ
ing to gain anything -authentic ; ru
mors of his ddath are current every
fifteen minutes.
JUST AFTER THE SHOOTING.
Vahinoton, Jniy 9 Dr. Toauahend,
Health Officer of the District, in conversa
tion this af teriiOon, said : ' I found the
President wben I arrived at the Baltimore
& Potomac Depot, about fiv minutes af
ter tlie shooting occurred, in a vomiting
and fainting condition. I had his head
lowered, which bad been elevated by an
attendant, and administered ' aromatic
spirits of ammonia and brandy to revive
him. This had the desired effect, and the
President, regaining consciousness, was
asked where he felt most pain. lie re
plied, in the right leg and foot. I then
examined the wound, introducing my fin
gers, which caused a alight hemorrhage.
"I then decided to have him moved
np-stairs from the crowd After getting
him there, Drs. Smith and Purvis arrived,
and upon consultation with them it was
decided to remove him to the White
House, when another examination waa
made and stimulants again administered.
An ineffectual attempt waa made to trace
the course of the wound, and at twenty
minutes past twelve, the President suffer
ing much pain, a hypodermic injectioa of
morphine was administered.
Dr. Townshend left the President short
ly afterward, somewhat revived. The
Doctor said at 2 p. m. that he could not
give au intelligent opinion as yet, bat pro
nounces the wonnd as dangerous.
THE PRESIDENT TO HIS WIFE.
Washington, July 211:0.". a. m. Pres
ident Garfield is conscious, and does not
complain of great snfforiog. He haa jmt
dictated a telegram to hia wife. It is im
possible to sat as yet what the result will
be, bnt the surgeons are of the opinion
that the wounds are not necessarily fatal.
The following telegram has been sent:
"Mas. General Garfield, Elberon
Long Branoh : The President wishes me
to say to yon, from him, that be has been
seriously hurt how seriously, he cannot
yet say. lie is himself, and hopes yon
will come to him soon. He sends bis love
to you. "
AT LONG BRANCH.
Lonu Branch, July 2. The news of
the slmoting of President Garfield created
the most intense excitement here, whi-
waa heightened by the presence of Mrs.
Garfield. When the telegram arrived, an
nouncing the attempted assassination.
Mrs. Garfield was at the depot, awaiting
the arrival of her husband, who was to
join her in a pleasure trip up the Hudson
The news of the shooting, spread from li

Mrs. Garfield. The President's telegram
conveyed the dreadful news to her.
The following dispatch was received:
Executive Mansion,
Washington, July 2, 1881. J
Gen. Swatm, Elberton, N. J. We have
the President safely and comfortably set
tled in his room at the Executive Man
sion, and his pulse is strong and nearly
normal. So far as I can determine from
what the surgeons say, and from his gen
eral condition, I feel very hopeful. Come
on soon as you can get a special. Advise
ns of the movements of your train, an
when you can be expected. As the Pres
ident said on a similar occasion sixteen
years ago, "God reigns, and the Govern
ment at Washington still lives."
Gen. Grant just arrived and expressed
deep regret at the attempted assassination
of the President.
Mrs. Garfield is almost frantic over the
news. Her physicians allow her to see
none of the serious dispatcher, but dic
tate hopeful ones to her.
X dispatch to Gen. Grant has relieved
Mrs. Garfield's anxiety. It says: "Th
President's wounds are not mortal. He
is shot in the arm and hip."

THE PRESIDENT'S COURAGE AND HOPEFULNESS.
The Cincinnati Enquirer of thia. morn
ing (Tuesday) says, editorially :
"Col. W. W. Dudley, of Indiana, pann
ed Saturday night at the President's
bedside. Cot. Dudley says the President
inquired about the assassin ; asked bim t
describe the man's appearance, his griev-
ance, if he had any, and whether he wa
securely guarded. Being told that he
must not talk, the President said to him
'Dudley, I'll make this bargain with you :
I'll not talk as long as you give me all the
ice I want.' The Colonel readily agreed
to the proposition, but very soon he was
obliged to remind the President of his
agreemtnt. The President suffered in
tense pain in his leg, hut he was heard to
murmur: 'I will endure any pain:' He
said: 'To get well I would cheerfully
ttick out that right leg and have it chop
led oft" if it would bring health again.'
He frequently expressed the belief tliat he
would recover; but, 'if it be God's will
that I should die,' he added stonily,
measuring hia words, 'I am ready to go. I
am not afraid to die.' "
THE ASSASSIN.
DAMAGING FACTS IN HIS PREVIOUS CAREER—
—A CHRONIC BEGGAR FOR OFFICE, A SHYSTER
LAWYER, AND A BOARDING-HOUSE
DEAD-BEAT.
Chicago, July 2.-Charles GitUau, tha
man who attempted to assassinate the Pres
ident, haa been more or less known in Chi
cago for the past ten years. lie was a
disreputable lawyer, and has generally
been considered half insane. He went to
New York seven or eight years ago, and
upon hij return, in 187C, professed to hav
been converted, and delivered several lec
tures under the auspices of the Young
Men's Carialian Association. He next ap
peared at the bead of a schema to buy the
Caicago later-Ocean, and run it on the
p'.an of the New York Herald ; bnt as he
bad neither capital nor backing, the mat
ter was soon dropped by him. He left for
Washington several mouths ago.
There are many recollections of Charles
J. Gitteau, which is his correct name, who
lived here several years and acquired an
unenviable reputation. He was at one
time on the point of marriage with an es
timable young lady on the South Side, but
his character became known just in time
to prevent such a calamity to the lady and
her family. Gitteau left town immediate
ly after this for some me-nths. One gen
tleman remarked : M I remember Charles
GitUau well ; he was here two or three
years ago, and at eaued to have no visible
means of support." He preached or fea
tured on religious and social subjects upon
which he was an enthusiast. Ha started in
here as a lawyer, but failed Utterly; be then
tried to lift himself into notoriety by lec
turing on religion one evening each week.
He failed also as a lecturer, and then be
gan life as a tramp of the more respecta
ble order. He was branded by the Hotel
keepers' Association as a dead-beat. In
appearance he is an American of French
extraction, thirty-five to forty years old,
of medium height, slender build, fuir
complexion, brown hair, French-shaped
mustache and beard tinged with gray.
His whole appearance waa that of a dan
dified man of small mental caliber. He
was unusually fond of notoriety, and
would go almost any length to get his
name in the papers. He was arrested
here once for embezzlement. He got the
idea into his head that he was fit for offi
cial position, and has been trying with all
his power to get a Consulate at Marseilles.
MORE VILLAIN THAN LUNATIC.
Washington, July 2. Charles Guitteau,
the assassin of the President, is a Canadian
Frenchmau by birth, and bails from Chi
cago. He came here in the month of Feb
ruary with recommendations from various
parties in Illinois, to secure the United
States Cmsulabip to Marseilles, France.
He went to the well known boarding-
house of Mrs. Lock wood, ( formerly Mrs.
Bines) 810 Twelfth stieet, and triad to se
cure board. Mis. Lock wood did not like
his appearanoe,and gave him an out-of-the-way
room in the house, in hopes of gettiug
rid of him. He pretended to know Gen.
Logan and others then boarding there.
Mrs. Lock wood states he acted strange
ly at times, and about the middle- of ihe
month she presented hia bill; he conld not
pay it. He afterward left the house, and
sent Mrs. Lock wood a note, saying he ex
pected a $6,000 position, and would soon
pay his bill. Mrs. Lock wood showed this
note to Gen. Logan, who said the man was
crazy. Three weeks ago he met Mrs.
lticksford, of Mrs. Lock wood's boarding
house, on the street, and requested her to
say nothing abont the bill he owfd, as it
would hurt him in his effort to -sacnw
position. Mrs. Look wood said that Guit
teau was a graat bother to Gen. Logan, so
persistent was he in hia efforts to secure
that gentleman's efforts in his behalf.
Since leaving Mrs. Lockwood's house he
his been (topping at various places, but
never for any great length of time, for the
reason that be appeared to have no funds,
H t )ld one of the boarders at Mrs. Lock-
wood's he expected to be app tiuUd Min
ister to France, but did not desire it to be
known. Up to day before yesterday,
when he registered at the Biggs House,
Guitteau has been stopping for the last
six weeks, with no baggage but a paper
box, at 920 Fourteenth street.
THE ASSASSIN'S LETTER.
The following letter was taken from the
prisoner's pocket at police headquarters:
"Jilt 2, 1881 To the White Houhe;
The President's tragic death was a sad
necessity, but it will unite the Republican
party and save the Republic. Life is a
flimsy dream, and it matters little when
one goes. A human life is of small value.
During the war thousands of brave boys
went down without a tear. I presume the
President was a Christian, and that he
will be happier in Paradise than here. It
will be no worse for Mrs. Garfield, dear
soul, to part with her husband this way
than by natural death. He is liable to go
at any time any way. I had no ill-will
toward the President. His death was a
political necessity. I am a lawyer, a the
ologian and a politician. I am a Stalwart
of the Stalwarts. I waa with Gen. Grant
and the rest of our men io New York dur
ing tha canvaes. I have some pa pen for
the presd which I shall leave with Byron
Andrews and hia co-jouxoalists at 1420
New York Avenue, where all the report-
era can see them. I am going to the jail.
"CHARLES GUITTEAU."
ANOTHER LETTER.
The following letter was found on the
street shortly after Guitteau's arrest. The
envelope wu unsealed and addressed :
"To Cm. Sicrman,(or A is First Assidani) in
Charge of War Department:
"To Gen. Sherman : I have just shot
the President. I shot him seversl times,
as I wliihed him to go as easily as possible.
Hia death waa a political necessity.
"I am lawyer, theologian and politi
cian. 1 am ntalwart of the Stalwart. 1
waa with Gen. (irant and the rest of our
men in New York during the canvass.
I am going to the jail, Please order out
your troops and take possession of the jail
at once. . C'HARI.KS Gcittea'u."
On receiving the above Gen. Sherman
gave it the following -endorsement :
Headquarters op the Army, "t
Washington, July t 11:35 A. M. j
''This It-tter.was handed me this minute
by Major William J. Twining, United
States Engineer, Commissioners of Dis
trict of Columbia, and Major William G.
Brock, Chief of Police. I don't know the
writer. Never heard of pr saw him to my
knowledge, and . hereby .return it to the
keeping of the above-named parties as
testimony in the case.
"W. T. SHERMAN, General."
During Sunday and Monday the
bulletins were alternately hopeful
and desponding, but on the whole
more iavoraDie,' until aDout io o -
clock Monday , night, when the fol
lowing dispatch again hllea every
heart with sadness:
Washington, July 4,9.40 P.M.
Surgeon-Gen. Barnes says the Presi
dent will not live beyond midnight.
At 11 o'clock another dispatch re
ported a slight improvement, and no
thing further was received until 8 o'
clock this morning, (Tuesday) when
hope was once more revived by the
glad tidings that at i.-to A. M. the
President was sleeping comfortably
and was decidedly better. This was
confirmed by the morning papers at
10 o'clock. At 11.15 a sti" more fa
vorable dispatch came, and at-4.15
P. M. came, the following, with which
we joyfully close our account:'
Washington, July 5, 4.05 P. M.
The President' condition continues
to grow more and more favorable.
Vice-President Arthur stayed at the
White House about an hour, but it
was thought best that the President
should not see him or any one but
his nurses until he is stronger.
LETTER FROM WASHINGTON.
WASHINGTON, D. C. July 3, 1881.
[Special Correspondence of the News.
As we were strolling through the spac
ious halls of tha Capitol about 9$ o'clock
Saturday morning, we were shocked . a'cd
startled by the intelligence that the Presi
dent had been shot at the Baltimore and
Potomac Dept. Our reportorial instincts,
asidt from the natural feelings of an Amer
ican and an administration Republican,
under such exoiting news, impelled ns to
hasten at once to the scene of the dreadful
ealamity, where, by taking a carriage, we
arrived within ten or fifteen minutes af
ter the shooting occurred.
SCENE AT THE DEPOT
Beggar description, and will be indelibly
impressed on our memory should we live
for a century. Thousands of excited men
and women were rushing to and fro, shout
ing and crying and wringing their hands
with looks of grief and horror depicted on
their countenances, such as are seen but
once in a lifetime, "ihe f residen t is
shot 1" "The President is dead !' '
"LYNCH THE ASSASSIN !"
Were the cries that were heard on every
hand, and so intense waa the exciement,
and so numerous the wild rumors that it
Waa impossible to obtain any reliable in
formation from the crowd. Pushing onr
way through, we entered the depot, which
is within a stone's throw of Peunsyivani a
Avenue, on the corner of Sixth and B
streets. A great pool of blood wai the
first sight that greeted our gaze; the blood
of the President; the blood of a niarttr to
his - country and Republicanism, whu-li
sent
THRILL OF HORROR
shocked and nuiubed our mental fa ultie,
Hastening up stairs we beheld the Presi
dent lying on a mattress, weltering in his
own blood, his light summer suit dyed
with the crimsou fluid, hut his pale, yet
calm face presenting a marked - contrast
to the excitement and confusion that sur
rounded him. In a few moments he was
placed in au ambulance, and guarded by
astroug detachment of mounted police,
and followed by the carriages containing
the officials and the excited populace on
foot, the cortege proceeded up Pennsylva
nia Avenue, with its floor-like pavement,
to the White House, at a rapid gallop.
By this time the news had spread into
every nook and corner of the great city,
and
THOUSANDS OF EXCITED PEOPLE
Lined the Avenue or gathered around the
depot and White House. On receipt of
the news the hundreds of clerks and of
ficials in the departments ruahed out on
the streets, business in all branch waa
entlrolv Mnpettded, and everybody waa
wild to learn particulars. Mounted mes
sengers galloped through the streets, cry
ing out the news to the excited throngs,
some conveying the information that the
President waa dead, others that he was
dying, while others declared that he was
riddled with bullets and could not possi
bly recover. All reports seemed to agree
that the
ASSASSIN HAD BEEN ARRESTED,
And in a momenta
crowds was turned from the President to
the wretch that had caused such wild com
motion. A strong desire to deal with him
summarily seemed to pervade the populace,
' i i j i I
and a movement waa made towards the
police station to which he had been taken,
but the authorities, anticipating the dan
ger, had removed him to the jail, away
up beyond the Navy Yardu, and the crowds
were too anxious to learn the condition ol
the President, to follow hira that distance.
It was not long until it waa pretty gen
erally understood tb it the President was
not dead, but that he had been shot twice,
and waa in a very critical condition. Thia
information, ia a nmaure allayed the ex
citement, and people set about learning
the
DETAILS OF THE TRAGEDY,
Which may as :
At 9:25 a. ui. the President and his par
ty arrived at the depot to take the 9:30 j
train to New York, where they were to
meet Mrs. Garfield, take a trip up the
Hudson and to the lakes, and also to at- I
tend the Commencement of Williams !
(Mass.) College, expecting to be absent !
until about iuel3th iot. The President, ;
walking arm in arm with Secretary Blaine, j
Lad just eutered the B street door, leading
to tbe ladies' waiting room, when be waa a
fired at by a man from the rear, who bad
been concealed behind tbe door, tbe abotjtime
t&kisg effect In his shoulder. The man j
who fired advanced a step or two and fired
again, and the President baring partly
turned round in surprise, after ihe first
shot, received fie b-ill in his Hide, and
fell fare-forward to tha Uxor. The assas
sin, with pistol in one Lund, and a letter
in the other.started to rti i fr.rn the depot,
but Was caught by a policeman, when he
exclaimed, "I did it, and am glud of it,
and will go to jail for it I .. . .

THE ASSASSIN'S HISTORY.
Charles is a shvsler lawyer,
fr.,mn,ic, wahmnar, v..ld. and i
unmarried. We have not hee-n
able to get a sight i.f . hi in as yet, but
gentlemen who conversed - with
him informs us that he seems
bright and intelligent, and has never shown
any evidences of insanity. Advices .from
Chicago state that he is a no-ai-count,
worthless fellow, who was compelled to
leaveth.it oity on account of hot paying
his debts. He has said Bince arrested that
he is a th&ologian, as well as a politician,
which would seem true, as he has pub
lished a number of religions tracts. He
haa also practised law in Milwaukee, and
is quite well connected, having a . brother
in Rockport, ftl , who is President" of a
National Btnk. He i a
DISAPPOINTED OFFICE-SEEKER,
ever since the inauguration, lie - wanted
t t Consul to Marseilles, Fr iin e, aud
ha bt-KU nnuoyiug ihe President, Secreta

Col. Ingeraoll and others, almost constant
ly. Ilia clothes are woru.aud e-dy, but
notwithstanding this fact he haa been
hanging around the first-cls hotel much
of the time, and otdc-tn; the -servant!
around as if he had been, tha proprietor.
He had been , a constant visitor at the
White Hoube, and was well known by 'Le
servants, and bad had frequent interviews
with the President, the lat of which, we
are informed, was on Friday before the
shooting Saturday morning. He had
jumped hia board bill in oneonuo places
in this cily, and was regarded as a wotth
less but harmless fellow by all knew
bim He no donbt bad confederates, and
there is good reason to believe that he was
can v ing out ' " "
A PREMEDITATED PLOT
to awia-sMiiate the President.'
Guiitenu Wits seen in close conversation
wiih three -different men at the dt pot just
before the shooting, and was heard to ask
when the Presidential patty would arrive,
ile h id al.so hired a hackman to diive bim
to Glenwood Cemetery in 15 minute, tnd
one of the men he had been conversing
with Wils noticed to run out of the depot
after the firat shot was fired. When ar
rested be aaid that Vice-President Arthur,
Gen. Shermau and other promit-eut . offic
ials would join him at the jail, bnt it is
unnecessary to add that they . did not. A
large number of lettters
ADDRESSED TO PUBLIC MEN,
were found on his person, col
tenta have Dot teen revealed, and they
have been placed in the handa of the de
tectives, the entire force of the city, un
der rommand of Government Detective
Brooks, being engaged in working np tha
caKe. The letters do not name the parties
connected with him in this damnable plot,
but the
DETECTIVES HAVE A CLUE,
they think, and the wLole matter will lie
IVrreted out. There are rep. i In current
that Guitteau said he Lot i l,o PnaideLt
because he did not give him tha Consul
ship, but Ihey are l ot f nbt-t ntiutul.
Some of the papers liure are trjing to
make him out insane, but the plot waa be
well laid for that story to go down.
THE WEAPON.
We had an opportunity to exam'ne the
weapon, which we saw in the ham's of a
policeman, abont twenty najutea alter
the bhootitig. It U an ivory-hand'el "Bull
Dog" five-shot revolver, shooting a long
32 ball, aud three chambers were 1. adad.
Gui'tean examined some pisto'i at a gun
store here on Friday, aud gtid he wanted
to do some shooting on Sator day.
THS PKKf IDEXT'b WOUND AND CONDITION.
One of the wonnds. as stated above, is
in the shoulder, which is very painfu', bi.t
not dangerous. The secoad ball entered
the side, passed through the liver, and is
lodged in the abdomen, whtre it oar not
be reached. In nine eases out of ten
these wounds are ftUl, accoiding to
the statements of physicians. The doc
tor told Mr. Garfield yesterday that there
was just one chauce for his recovery, and
be aaid bravely, "Well, I will take that
chance !"
from the time of the shooting until
about noon, bulletin Were sent out from
the White House, of the President's con
dition, eveiy five or ten minutes, and up
to noon it was thought he would recover.
Aftur it was discovered, however, that tha
ball had passed through the liver aud en
tered the abdomen, the bulletins
nounced that the President could not lire,
and then indued Washington was a sad
city. Grief was depicted on every coun
tenance. Nothing but ih-j condition of
the Prei-ident waa tulked of snl that in
HUSHED AND SORROWFUL TONES.
It seined ax if a funeral pall were aprtal
over the whole oitv. AI 5 o'clock it was
bnlltt'neil that tLe President waa dying,
aud then tbe large crowd that had sur
rounded the Executive Mansion all day,
iurreaaed tenfold. Extra troops wpra pat
on duty, to keep the i-rowd back aud pre
serve order. Jhe number of persons
afaund the White Hon o at 9 o'clock p. n.
ran np into thousand, aiid ini.ny people
remuimd there all night long. Shortly af
er 9 o'clock the vex ent abroad that
the Prbaidi'iit waa quietly aleopinp, and
that hn ronuition waa more favorable, bat
the majority n-imfii to think that it was
only temporary, and tha citizens letired
with sad, sick hearts, aaitii g in painful
expectancy the gemra! aluruS fr ru tha
fire-bells, which it was hul'etiutd woalJ be

POLITICAL RUMORS
Are rife, and all kinds of wild stories can
be heard. We have spent much of our
timein-e the shooting around the princi
pal hotel', listening to the talk of public
man, and are tolerably vrell prepared to
state the feelings of the politicians in
Washington. Some tew declare that the
plot n c:nic.iflted by Vice-President Ar-
" "C xr.oem-j, ,..,.
h "en Grant, but the large
. 1. ,. - ... 1 1. ti - j n 1
majority are more charitable, ai d regard
the deed aa the act of a monomaniac tat
office. Others deflate he is insane, and
others still shake their heads and say there
will be startling developements, hut make
no charges.
It will be rememlered that C'onkling
haa said since his resignation that some
thing would soon happen which would
startle the whole world even more than his
resignation, and you can hear these words
referred to by the politicians on every
hand, while other leading men quietly re
mark that if the President dies they would
not stand in Conkling's shoes for the uni
verse. Kveryone seems to deplore the pos
sibility of Arthur taking the Presidential
chair, and appointing a Cabinet which all
agree would contain Conkling and Grant,
who wi-uld virtually be the President,
Some declare that Robertson Would be re-
uovt-d immediately, but others shake their
lu-ads and uv tlie country would not sub
mit to tliH so soon after his con filia
tion .
A fir illus'ration of the political feel
inj was furnished Saturday evening by
the conversation ot two ignorant negroes
on Pennsylvania Avenue. . One remarked
that they had caught the man who shot
the President, and were going to hang him,
when the other replied, " Yes, and they
have got that man Conkling in jail, too,
and are going to hang him."
Vice-President Arthur arrived from Al
bany last night, and up to three o'clock
had not gone to the White House, which
Is causing a great deal of unfavorable
comment. .
Some of the politicians openly declare
that the - assassination plot should be
laid at the door of the " Star Route " ras
cals, expressing me opinion that un
der Arthur their prosecutions would pro
ceed no farther. But it is no time to dis
cuss politics in connection with this sad
occurrence, and we have written the above
merely to show what speculations are be
ing indulged in.
' The assassination is a blow from which
it will take the country years to recover,
even if it should not result in the death of
the President. Coming a it does in
time nf peace, when nothing of the kind
was anticipated, it causes more excitement
and consternation than even the assassi
nation of President Lincoln, at the close of
a terrible civil war, when the nation had
been accustomed to violence and bloodshed
for four terrible years. Old citizens of
Washington declare this later assassina
tion causes infinitely more sorrow and in
dignation than that cf Lincoln. They de
plore it for the good of :!.e country, and
declare it to be a blot on our nation's char
acter that time can never efface. Every
Republican regrets that the deed was done
by a Republican, whn,it seems, was prompt
ed to it by the deplorable dissensions in
the party during the past few weeks, caused
by the conduct of Conkling and Piatt and
their followers. But we have already
written much more than we intended, and
will stop, as the mail is about to close,
with a promise of more hereafter.

The "Star Route" Frauds.
The Government is making vigor
ous preparations for the trial of the
"Star Eoute" conspirators. There
is no doubt that the grand jury of
the District of Columbia, which
meets in September, will And indict
ments against tome of the leading
men engaged in the rascality. A
late dispatch from 'Washington City
says:
Every day new evidence, tending
to strengthen tbe government a po
sition, is being received. Many per
sons who have been employed by
members ol the ring to do tlieir dir
ty work in the West are squealing.
General Brady's excuse for granting
excessive pay to members of the
ring was, tnat people along the
routes and their Representatives in
Congress petitioned lor the increase,
and in deference to their request the
service was granted. Tbe depart
ment will be able to show that the
contractors employed men to get np
these petitions, and that, as a rule,
they did not represent the wishes
of the people along tbe route.
Some of the men employed to get
up thn petitions have not been paid,
and they are informing the -depart
meut of the frauds perpetrated of
which they have peraoaal knowl
edge.
The members of the ring have
been boasting that as soon as tbe
people of the West could be heard
from, such a protest against the dis
memberment'' of their mail service
would be made that General James
would be obliged to restore it. On
the contrary, letters are daily re
ceived at the department, from per
sons along the lines where unneces
sary service haa been taken off,
thanking the Postmaster-General
for putting a stop to the robbery of
the treasury, which tbey have been
powerless to prevent by their repre
sentations for four years past.
