Rational Capital Happenings.
Washington, October 12. Scoville,
the brother-in-law and counsel of Gui
teau, was in Court this morning and
said he had no notice of information as
to when the arraignment of Guiteau
was to take place, and that he had not
yet received any answer from General
Butler as to whether he would act as
counsel for the defondent; that a state
ment was already published as to Mer
rick's expressing unwillingness to argue
the question of jurisdiction if raisett is
correct, that he has been advisod by
distinguished lawyers all over the coun
try, including several judges, to raise
every question and make every point
that can be properly made on behalf of
his client; that much is also expressed
in the instructions of Guiteau and that
he, Scoville, has no apprehensions of
personal violence being offered to the
prisoner on his way to or from the
Court. He stated that the District
Judges also expressed a desire that all
legitimate and proper questions
be put.
In t he executive session of the Senate
no business was transacted other than
to lay nominations received from the
President upon the table to await refer
ence to the Appropriation Committee,
when organized. Both Democrats and
Republicans met in caucus this after
noon. The Democrats discussed the
Committee question and without agree
ing on any definite plan of apportion
ment merely decided to oppose the
adoption of Edmund's resolution. The
Republicans remained in session but a
short time, discussing the general situa
tion, and took no decided action on
any particular question.
The Democrat caucus, this evening,
authorized Senator Garland to amend
Senator Edmund's resolution so as to
create a list of not more than ten Com
mitte's or such as may be made neces
sary by presidential communications to
stand lor tins sesison only ana mus save
the expense and relieve public business

The President sent the following no
minations to the Senate : Wm. W.

Should Edmund's resolution be adopt
ed Bayard will have power to fill vacan
cies on Committees of last session oc
casioned by the death of Burnside and
the resignation of Conkling and Piatt.
Several important Committees would
thus be made Democratic. Burnside
was chairman and Conkling members
of the Foreign Relations Committee ;
Piatt, Finance ; Burnside, Military ;
Conkling, Judiciary ; Piatt. Post Office;
Burnside, Education ; Conkling, En
grossed Bills. Bayard might assign
new Senators only to the three inferior
Committees and make the other three
important ones Democratic.
Talk in the Republics n caucus and by
Republican Senators outside of the cau
cus is not generally favorable to the
proposition to elect Davis, of Illinois,
President of the Senate and thus dis
place Bayard. Republicans appreciate
the fact that they would bo compelled
to elect Senator Davis without any
pledge from him as to how he would
vote on party questions, and prominent
Republican Senators say he would as
likely vote with the Democrats as the
Republicans on such questions. A Re
publican Senator said this morning that
he preferred Bayard to Senator Davis,
because be knew just what to expect
from Bayard, and that if President Ar
thur should die, Bayard would natural
ly employ all the powers of thht officer
while acting President to elect a Demo
cratic President of the United States,
and this would unite the Republican
party, but Senator Davis would proba
bly adopt a middle or independent
course which might not help the Repub
lican party.

bonds received for redemption under
notice to redeem five million bonds em

be more than five million dollars in
bonds offered it Is quite probable re
demption will be mado pro rata.
This Senator said the Republicans
had no authoritative information
whether Davis would accept a nomina
tion or not, and that should they nom
inate him he would vote against himself
and thus defeat the movement. It
would be embarrassing if he expressed
himself for letting Bayard alone until
the Republicans can elect one of their
Bayard said that if the Republicans
nominate Davis, he will move to elect
him and thus put him under as much
obligation to Davis for his position as
to the Republicans. Davis has informed
the Senators in friendly conversation
most positively that he would not con
sent to the use of his name, and that
he will vote against any preposition, to
change the presiding officer. It is more
than probable that no effort will be
made at this session to displace Bayard.
The Republican Senators are desirous
of an early adjournment, and will not
be likely to consume time in fighting
over the presiding officer, unless they
have a show of electing a Republican.
Neither party has positively decided
anything about the election of Secretary
and regular committees. Indications
are that only such as are necessary will
be created.

New York, October 12. The Herald
says : If Keene and Lorillard imagine
that the American people will ever be
satisfied until Iroquois and Foxhall
meet in a race they are the most mis
taken couple on this terristrial ball.
Keene was asked yesterday if he would
run Foxhall again this season in Eng
land and replied :
" I have-not yet made up my mind in
the coming Cambridgeshire race which
is only about half the distance of the
Czarowitch. His weight is 112 pounds,
but as he has incurred a penalty by vic
tory to-day of fourteen pounds rising
the imports, ho will have to carry 128
pounds. I am at present dubious as to
the advisability of starting him. No
three-years old has ever won the Cam
bridgeshire with anything approaching
the weight roxhall has to carry."
Keene was asked if he would be afraid

Republican Victory In lito. .
Columbus, O., Oct. 12. The feature
of the election was that the Democrats
gained in Republican eountien, and
vice versa. This is attributed to the fact
that in several Republican counties.

last winter to give additional liquor
legislation. The Legislature attempted
to give this legislation, but could nwt
agree on account of the variety ot plans
offered. Foster's gain in Democrattc
counties, offsetting his loss in Repub
lican counties, is attributed to Book
waiter's brief connection with the Dem
ocratic party. The Democrats polled a
full vote in these counties, and there
was a stronger poll of Republicans there
than in reliable Republican counties.
It is denied in political circles that this
has been Foster's mainstay. Returns
official from sixty precincts of Hamil

hear from, show that nine out of ten
Republicans were elected to the House,
and two Republicons out of three elect

The Country In Peril.
New York, Oct. 12. The Times and
Tribune favor the suggestion to elect
Davis President of the Senate. The
Tribune says if it is true, as Judge Da

tion places the peace of the country in
peril by inviting any reckless and des
perate man to change the administra
tion through the use of the pistol. It is
the duty ot the Senate to end that state
of things.

An $8 overcoat was handed him by

a buckskin money-purse from the show

dropped it into one of the pockets.

A few minutes later a negro, in quest
of a suitable pair of shoes, entered the

"Vat is it you visli?"
"Yer got any cheap shoes hyar?"
asked the negro.
"Blenty uf uem, my front, blenty; at

The negro stated that he wanted a
pair of brogans, and soon his pedal ex

bargain struck. As he was about to
leave the proprietor called him back.
"I ain' t gwine tcr buy nullin elze. I'se

the proprietor, "but I shust vauts you

A Journalistic Fight.
Thursday's Atchison (Uobe says :
Col. Anthony, of the Leavenworth
Times, and Major Sleyens, of the Kan
sas City Journal, met in personal en
counter at the Union depot this after
noon, but were separated in time to
prevent great bodily harm to either, al
though Stevens succeeded in hitting
Mr. A. once on the organ he refers to
as a hook. The men have been ene
mies for several months, Anthony hav
ing made application to the Western
Associated Press to have Stevens sus
pended for buying the news of a rival
association. Stevens was victorious in
the courts, and exultingly called An
thony a hook-nosed old devil, to which
sarcasm Anthony could make no other
reply than that of fisticuffs. It is the
opinion of a majority of those present
that if Munifordanu Baker had not in
terfered, Stevens would have jarred the
earth with Anthony.
Londonderry, Ireland, was lately the
scene of a demonstration on the occa
sion of drawing home the turf of an In
carcerated tenant. At 9 a.m. 3,000 carts
were assembled under the direction of
a mounted curate. The Londonderry
carts, 850, headed the procession. After
them came 20 little boys, in green and
orange, mounted on asses. The driyers
of the 3,000 carts fought for the honor
of carrying a sod. Prior to these pro
ceedings the prisoner's nephow inaugu

The following epistle, sent from Du

explains itself :
"Durango, Colo., Sept. 28, 1881.
Gentlemen : We have just learned
that Dyson Eskridge is expected to ar
rive in Silverton iu a short time, and
probably by the time this reaches you,
therefore we take this opportunity of
calling to your attention the solemn fact
that should he be lynched at the hands
of the Silverton vigilantes, then sum
mary vengeance will be meted out to
any and ail af you in the near future.
That you hung the Kid, who was inno
cent of any crime, is well known to us.
That it is necessary for you to travel in
and out of ;your town on business, and
if j'ou believe you are safe on Mich
trips after you shall have lynched an
other innocent man in the person of
Dyson Eskridge, you are mistaken.
Give him a just trial and all is well ; do
otherwise and suffer the consequences.
We are determined and have a fixed
purpose to perform our work, therefore
take timely warning. We do not up
hold crime, but want the law to take its
"While we do not approve of the
lynching of men, neither do we endorse
assassination. The lack of competent
and honest officials makes strangling a
necessity at times. When officers as
sociate and sympathize with criminals,
a community will naturally seek re
dress. Give us upright officers of the
law, and there will be no need of vigi
lance committees. Put bad men into
official positions and the disease there
by generated on the body politic will
require caustic measures.' Durango
The help already given to the Michi
gan sufferers, together with the promise
of more, has saved many a farm to its
owner. Immediately after the lire,
speculators hurried into the burned-over
district with each, expecting to be
able to buy the land at trifling prices;
but the farmers, encouraged by the
prompt assistance, have declined to

Jiolo From Carbonateville.
Cakbonateville, N. M., October 11,
1881. Editok Gazette : This camp is
improving wonderfully in regard to its
mineral resources. Good, rich mineral
is being taken out every day from our
mines. The mines at this place an;
looking better every day. A great deal
of work is going on here at present.
Money is being invested here heavily.
A number of the mines are making ar
rangements for machinery.
The Bottom Dollar is producing some
very fine mineral at present. The Great
Western is having a road built to thr
smelter at Bonanza City to ship ore to
the same. Work will begin in earnest
as soon as the road is built, The Bo
nanza No. 3 mine is down to a depth of
275 feet and no water has been found as
yet. The vein at this depth is quite
large, carrying galena and copper ore.
They have quite a large amount of ore
on tho dump. No doubt this company
will erect smelting works. The ma
chinesy for the mine will be here seen.
The L. H. WhitsonCompany.of Iowa,
are going to work the Rue Alenia mine
(old Spanish.) The machinery at the
station will be put on this mine. Sev
eral shafts are on this claim and show
mineral in large quantities, one shaft
being 120 feet deep with several drifts.
Considerable ore has been taken from
this claim and from what 1 have learn
ed about it the ore paid the former own
ers. The Pretty Betsy mine is working
a full force of men. Some very rich
mineral is being taken from this mine.
Tho Aztec mine is now working. It will
sink to water. This is a valuable piecu
of property, carrying fine galena and
horn silver. Forty thousand dollars
has already been refused for it. Tho
Marshalltown, Iowa, Company will let
this week contracts on seven of their
claims. Work is plentiful and wages
good. Every one seems to be busy. A
great deal of assessment work is going
on. Hoping to write to you soon again,
I am yours, &c. XXX.
