Tlie (.iiiteau Trial.
WANTS MONEY.
Washington, Dee. 1. Guiteau' s trial
was resumed this morning. While in
the witness box Guiteau asked to make
a personal statement and addressed
himself to the audience saying:
Two weeks ago I sent out an appeal
for money. I did it on my own ac
count and the day after Scovüle pub
licly announced that it was without his
authority inviting my friends to send
mo money in the interest ot the cause
of justice. They can send $5, JS10 or
$50, or $1,000 if they wish. If they don't
want to t)e known they can send with
out name to Scoville.
Judge Porter then began a rapid fire
of interrogatories,' eliciting from the
prisoner in his replies that physically
he was a coward and always kept away
from personal danger; morally he was
brave as a lion when he thought Deity
was back of him; in his opinion the doc
tors killed the President; the acts of
Jones and Mason in attempting to kill
him were wrong and should bo pun
ished unless they can show they were
inspired by Deity.
T he witness soon showed signs of im
patience and excitement, and striking
hisopen hand upon Jhe desk, empha
sized every sentence uttered. Upon
being pressed for answers he finally be
came obstinate and shouted to Judge
Porter, "I know you well and I know
bigger men than you are. I've seen
you shake your finger at . witnesses in
New York, out you can't scare me.
Shortly after he was vsked if he be
lieved in the ten commandments, to
which he replied in the atlirmative.
"THOU SHALT NOT KILL,"
Ought to read in his case " Thou shall
kill," said Judge Porter.
Guiteau became exceedingly violent
and refused to discuss the matter at all.
There was no murder in his ease and
no killing; it was simply for the jury to
determine whether or liot his act in re
moving the President was inspired by
Deity or not. It was all nonsense to
split hairs any longer over that word.
It must be distinctly understood that
the removal of the President was the
act of Deity.
Witness proved decidedly obstinate,
anil after f 1 at ly contradicting the testi
mony of General Logan, Col. Reed
aud several other witnesses, he positive
lyrefused to answer several questions.
His favorite response beino1, "1 decline
to discuss that with you. ' Witness
seemed to be greatly annoyed at Judge
Porters' habit of pointing his linger at
him, as he frequently did in the way of
emphasizing his questions, and again
broke out angrily
"YOU NEED NOT POINT YOUR LONG- FIN
GER AT ME,
Mr. Judge Porter. I've seen.jTou do
that before, but you can't scare me"
Witness declined to go into the board
ing house question as it had no bearing
on the ease. He supposed he owed
150 to various landladies.
Judge Cox then directed him to reply
to questions.
He was readily driven from one posi
tion to another, until confronted with
the evidenceof his own witnesses, when
he unhesitatingly pronounced their ev
idence false. Once he emphasized the
contradiction by saying: Anything I
say to you. Judge," is true. You can
put that down as a fixed fact.
HOW TO BORROW MONEY.
Being pressed as to how lie proposed
to raise the funds which he said he was
expecting to receive, the witness re
plied : "i intended to borrow it from
some of my friends, and added, I will
tell you, judge, how I borrow money.
It niay be of service to you when vou
want to borrow for yourself. I don't
lie nor sneak but go right up to a man
and ask for what I want."
Witness was closely questioned about
the purchase of his pistol and asked
why he brought one with an ivory han
dle" instead of a plain one, and replied:
Because I thought it was worth a dollar
more.
Judge Porter Did you not say it
would look better in the Patent office.
Witness admitted he might have be
lieved or thought the pistol would some
time be in that department.
Shortly afterward Guiteau became
very indignant at Judge Porter's use of
words and shouted fiercely: You seem
to take delight in the use of the words
"KILL" AND "MURDEU."
The-" ' -sao of your whining in
that way. The mere outward fact as to
how I removed the President has no
bearing on the case.
Guiteau's shrewdness in detecting
and anticipating anypoint which might
be made against him was a marked fea
ture of the investigation. Judge Por
ter pressed him very closely to fix the
day when he received his inspiration to
"remove" the President and Guiteau
finally shrieked out: To remove all
this loose talk I want you to know tjiat
I would have removed the President at
any time between the middle of June
and the second of July if I had found
the opportunity. I would have done it
for the good of the American people.
INGRATITUDE.
Guiteau was permitted to indulgo bis
passion for talking upon the pending
political situation at the time of the
shooting until speaking of the Presi
dent's ingartitued to Grant and Conk
ling, he was led by Judge Porter to
admit that ingratitude was the basest
of crimes.
Porter Stop there ? What would yon
have thought of your killing the Presi
dent had lie given you the Paris Consul
ship instead of having refused it?
Guiteau said that Garfield was bis
warm personal and political friend, and
that no personal motive were invighed
in the act.
Then fearing some trap was being set
for him, he hesitated a moment and
with great emphasis said : I would not
have taken the Paris Consulship the
first day of June if I had been appoint
ed and had the President and Secretary
Blaine both prayed on their knees for
me to take it. Í had at that time re
solved to remove, the President for the
good of the' Amerrean people.

BELFORD CANARD. "
Washington, December l.f-A report
has been in circulation to the effect that
Belford. of Colorado, would stand as a
candidato of the Greenbackers, and
make an attempt to hold the balance of
nower in the sueakerskiu contest. Bel-
ford has arrived and pronounced the
story absolutely without foundation.
He is announced by a friend, who is a
member of the House, and professes to
speak with authority as a Keifer man
with a leaning to Kasson. The gentle
man who gives the information had it
in writing from Belford in reply to a
letter asking his vote for himself.
THE PENNSYLVANIA DELEGATION.
To-morrow decides on the speaker
ship question. If they decide in favor
of Hiscoek, and they probably will, it
will make the fight East against West,
and the latterwill probably concentrate
on Keifer or Kasson and "win. Those
gentlemen are trying hard, to get the
necessary support for that emergency.
ARTHUR WILL NOT EXPRESS A PREFER
ENCE. The President refused to express an
opinion on the speakership to a. gentle
man who was trying to commit him
saying, "Hiscoek was distasteful to
him.1" Arthur said: "I want these
dissensions in the Republican party
healed. There is no sense1 in keeping
up factional fights and I regret to see a
factional spirit obtruding into the
speakership race. Select a good man
and elect him. I have nothing to say
about the candidates. -f
Holland Horribly II naff.
Little Rock, Ark., Dec. 1. At 1
o'clock this morning a mob ef about
fifty men surrounded the jail in Dar
daneile, in which James P. Holland was
confined, and demanded admittance,
threatening, if refused, to tear the
structure down. The jailer and guards
surrendered without striking a blow,
and the ring-leaders of the mob entered
the prison-and seized Holland, who was
handcuffed and lying down. He sprang
up and asked, "What do you want?"
"Your life," one of the mob answered
laeouically.
Hollancf trembled
violently, but pre
the death. The
pared to resist to
struggle which followed was very brief,
the unfortunate prisoner being over
powered in a few moments. A rope
was put around his neck, and he was
then dragged into the jail yard, amid a
storm ot oaths and jeers. The rope
was flung over a beam and the unfortu
nate man hauled up, and his dead body
left swaying in tho wind.
Having completed their work the mob
withdrew, crossing the river and dis
appearing in the vicinity of Russell
ville. It is thought they were the same
gang that lynched Taylor, a murderer
whom Governor Churchill respited last
summer.
Holland was hanged on the same
beam which the mob used when Taylor
was executed. Holland was respecta
bly connected, and from his youth up
had been allowed his own way by an in
dulgent father. Needing money, he
laid a plot with Wm. Casey and Chas.
G. Helpheny to rob and murder a plant
er named "B urges Jones. Helpheny
killed Jones and fled with the money,
but was afterward captured and divulg
ed the plot, causing the arrest of Hol
land and Casey. The latter was twice
sentenced to hang. During Holland's
trial, Helpheny escaped, and shortly af
terward Holland aud Casey did like
wise. They were captured recently in
Tennessee. Helpheny is still at large.
This is the third lynching which has
disgraced Yell county in the past twelve
months. '
Cruel hrlsilancj.
Washington, November 30. In the
Chrisliancy divorce case this afternoon,
the cross-examination of Mary F. Lug
enbeel, mother of Mrs. Christiancy.was
resumed. Being asked to relate some
details of Christiancy's alleged cruelty
to his wife, witness testified that while
she was visiting them in Lansing.Mich.
Christiancy knocked his wife down in
their room. Some two days later wit
ness spake about tira circumstance to
Christiancy, and he said that he was
drunk when he did it, and it should not
occur again. Christiancy and his sons
were drunk during the entire time she
was at the house, and fighting between
them was an every day occurrence.
During the giving of witness' testimony
she was repeatedly prompted and cor
rected by her daughter, to which coun
sel for the plaintiff objected. This
brought on a sharp colloquy, in which
Mrs. Christiancy asserted that her hus
band was drunk all the time.as was one
of his counsel. This rash declaration
irritated the gentleman to whom she
referred (IngersolD.who demanded that
the charge be made part of the record,
and amid some excitement tho session
closed.
I)eaU of Heart Disease.
Sedalia, Mo., Dec. 1. This morning,
Alfred Williams, one of the most intel
ligent and well-known colored men in
the city, was found dead in his bed. He
had been to church on Sunday evening
in perfect health, and went to Us room
about 9:30 o'clock. Tho Coroner has
not yet made a post-mortem examina
tion. Though Williams had a magnifi
cent physique and was the picture of
vigÉtf and health, it is believed that he
died while asleep of heart disease.
A Road Agent Robs a Stage.
San Antonio, December 1. The La
vera stage was robbed this morning
about nine miles from this city, by one
man on horseback. A negro driver and
one passenger, a lady ,were on board.
The Robbery was eflected by cutting a
bolt from behind. Mail was found
scattered on the road and valuable pack
ages were stolen. Officers are on the
trail of the robber.
Considerable Oonraln la m Colored
Cbnrrb.
Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 1. -Quite an
exciting scene occurred Monday night
at 10 ox-lock, at Avery Chapel, a col
ored church on Gayoso Street. Tho
edifice is built over the bayou. The
church was crowded, there being a con
gregation of near 500, who were listen
ing to tho inspiring words of a new
minister, when all of a sudden a bench
on which were seated several members
of the church broke, with a crash, and
a scene of confusion followed. Some
one shouted the church was falling
down, and in the rush made by the
frightened people for the door a col
ored girl, named Annie Floyd was
trampled upon and received injuries
that it is feared will prove fatal. Sev
eral others were bruised and otherwise
injured. The minister made his escape
by jumping out of tho window of the
church into the bayou, a distance of
about thirty feet, lío less than forty
others also made their escape in the
same manner, and the church this
morning presented the appearance of
having been mobbed, since not a win
dow sash or pane of glass unbroken can
be seen.
Darned to Dcatb.
Benicia, Cal.,-Dec. 1. At 8 o'clock
last evening at Port Costa, John Con
nelly, an Irishman aged about thirty
five years, and a stevedore by occupa
tion, was burned to death. Deceased
was in a state of intoxication and was
put to bed at 7 o'clock by some of his
friends in a small shanty. At 8 o'clock
a watchman observed a stream of fire
issuing from a shanty, and instead of
trying to extinguish the fire ho ran to
where help could be obtained, about a
mile distant, and succeeded in procur
ing assistance, but it was too late as the
partv onlv arrived in time to see the
smouldering ruins and Connelly's body
burned to a crisp. Deceased was sin
gle'and had censiderable money in the
shantv. He was addicted to the use of
strong drink. The fire is supposed to
have originated from a lighted candle
which was kept by his bedside.
Obstreperous Crank.
Vicksbursr. Miss.. Dec. 1. Danie
Flynn, formerly of this city, but recently
of Australia Landing, Miss., has sud
denly boeomo a crank of the most belli
gerent and precocious kind. On Sun
dav evening when the steamer Head
light landed at Australia Landing,
Flvnn armed himself and went aboard
the boat for the purpose of wiping out
the entire erew. The first man he met
was the pilot, who struck the crank
with a heavv stick, finally forcing him
to decamp. He then went down stairs
and fired upon a negro, the ball taking
effect in the latter' s Teg. He continued
his mad career to-the rear of the cabin,
seeking whom he might devour. He
had just leveled his pistol at Captain
Smith when some one in the rear struck
Flynn on the back of the head with a
club, iractunug his skull and prostrat
ing him for dead.
Elder-Down Duck.
-.. The beautiful eider-down ducks which
abound in this cold latitude are the sole
property of the inhabitants. They are
protected by the laws of Norway, so
tljat jio stray sportsman is allowed to
shoot them. I learned the mode of
procuring the down: When the duck
is about to lav she plucks down from
her own breast, the male plucks it from
his, and they spread a thick lining of it
all over the nest. When the nest is
completed the ownerremovesthedown;
the patient duck nils it a second and a
third time, when it is removed, but the
fourth time it is allowed to remain.
Thus the women and girls find enough
to employ themselves in attending to
these thousands of nests, while the men
and boys make and mend their nets and
got fish for oil and curing. Norway

A Contemplated Train Robbery
Thwarted.
St. Louis, Deo. 1. The police of Kan
sas City received information that an
other train robbery was contemplated
on one of the east-bound trains running
from that city Monday night. Armed
men accompanied the east-bound pas
senger train of the Missouri Pacific
which left the depot at 0 o'clock. The
Chicago & Alton train, which runs side
by side with the Pacific was also speci
ally guarded that night. It was be
lieved the attack was to be made at a
point near Blue River, near which the
tracks diverge. No attack, however,
was made. The contemplated robbery
was given away by a former mistress of
one of the old Glendale gang, but for
some reason amounted to nothing.
Dietl In a Dive.
Decatur, 111., December 1. At about
12 o'clock last night in Mrs. Elizabeth
Davis' bagnio, known as Idlewild, John
Lahey. aged 22 years, and son of Pat
rick Lahey, was shot through the right
lung, the ball passing nearly through
the body. Mrs. Davis and James Car
roll were the only occupants of the room
at the time of the shooting, and they
arc both in jail. Carroll had a revolv
er on his person with two chambers
empty. Lahey made a dyingstatement
this afternoon, in which he states that
he was requested to go out of the room
in which Mrs. Davis and Carroll were
seated. He did so, but came back soon
afterward when he was shot by either
the woman or Carroll.

M ho Foota tho Tariff Billa.
About thirtv-five vears airo when the
writer was fifteen years of age he made
the following comparison: His lamer
was a mechanic. In the family were
the father and mother and eleven chil
dren. The father, mother, an older
brother and the writer supported them
selves and nine younger members of tho
family. The gross earnings of the four
productive members oi the lamuj were
about 800. Since everything was pur
chased for the support of the family
about $500 was paid out lor articles the
price of which was affected by tho tar
iff. On some articles the tariff was
fifty per cent, on some as low as ten
per cent. A low average wouiu ne
twenty per cent. It appeared to tho
writer that his rather s tamiiy paid f íuu
to the support of the National govern
ment; that the four productive mem
bers or the iamuy paid fiw, or f jj
apiece to the National Government,
besides supporting themselves and the
nine non-producing members of the
family. In the same town was a State
senator, ne was worm, in real estate
and money loaned out $30,000. His I
family consisted of the father and
mother, two sons, who were men, and
one young daughter. One son assisted
his father in his legal business, the other
was a teacher. The gross income of
the family was at least $3,500. I heard
him say that he bought about $210
worth of articles, each year on which
there was duty. It appeared to the
writer that the senator s family paid
$50 to the national government, or that
the four productive members paid
$12.50 and supported themselves and
one non-producing member of the fam
ily. The writer made these compari
sons: Our family, without one dollar
of property, except household stuff and
clothing, pay $100 national tax. Sena
tor B.'s, with $30,000, pay $50. Each
productive member of our family sup
ports himself and two and one-quarter
helpless persons and has no property to
help in doing.it, and pays $25 national
tax. Each productive member of Sen
ator B.'s family supports himself and
one-fourlh of a helpless person.has the
fourth of the income of $30,000 to help
him do it, and pays $12.50 national tax.
Is such taxation Just and equal? Did
tho fact that in our family there were
n'.ne helpless persons render it
our duty to pay twice the tax?
Did the fact that we had no property
and Senator B. had $30,000 make it our
duty to pay twice the tax the senator's
family paid? Is such taxation just and
equal? I remember another incident.
A prosperous neighbor, who was a
high-tariff man, was discussing the
question with my father, a free-trader.
Father had just purchased a dress suit.
He took a pencil and paper and handed
Mr. S. the following statement. .
Coat of cloth in England (16
Tariff, ttfty per cent 8
Importer's expense and prollls 4
Total $28
"Now," said he, "I had to pay $8 tar
iff on that suit. I could have got it for
$20 with no tariff. I had to pay $28 for
it. I can see easily what the tariff cost
me on that suit. Now, will you set
down a like bill of benefits and show
me where the tariff returns me $8 or
even eight cents?" Mr. S. began to
talk of protection to home industry,
home trade, home markot, higher price
for home products, and '"higher
wages, and increased prosperity, etc.
"Mr. S," said father, "set down what
each item would be without tariff, what
it is nownmder tariff, show the amount
each is increased, prove your
figures to be facts, not fancies that they
are as undername as mine, men, when
you have done that, prove that myself.
or any other laboring man, or ordinary
farmer, or mechanic is benefitted ten
cents in a year by 'protection,' as you
call it. Give me the facts and figures,
not assertions, theories, and loose dec
lamations." "Well," said Mr. S.,
"have you any objection to supporting
the government?" No," replied father,
"I have not. I want burdens to be
equal. I pay $100 tariff, and support
my large family out of my wages and
the wages of my wife and two sons.
You pay about $20 and have a good
property; your family are all producers.
Is it just? I still want to know if I did
not pay $8 bounty out of my pocket to
American manuiacturers i want to
know why I should do it, and what
get for it?" I have never heard his
queries answered. Can you do it? 0.

Important Siew Mups.
Two' very interesting maps have just
been published by the Italian Geo
graphical Society. One of them is a
map of the world, on Mercaton's pro
jection, showingthe various arcs of lat
itude and longitude which have been
measured up to the present date. Most
of these are. of course, in Europe,
across the center of which, from Val
entía, in Ireland, to Ersk, on the bor
der of Asia, extends the longest meas
ured arc of latitude to tlie world.
Almost bisecting this is the longest
measured arc of meridian, which ex
tends from Fingenaes on the North'
coast of Norway to the most Southerly
bend of the Danube, in Roumania.
There are several shorter arcsof parallel
across Europe, while in Asia, the only
complete measurements are in India,
where two lines cross the country from
the Himalayas to Cape Comonn, and
from Kurrachce to Calcutta. In Amer
ica we have only the short measured
arcs of meridian ono in the United
States in Pennsylvania, and the class
ical one in Ecuador, running south
from near where the Equator cuts the
coast. These are the data on which ge
odeists base their calculations as to the
exact figure of the earth, which tkey
have found to be curiously irreg
ular. The other map is ne of Europe,
and Bhows the progress made in the
trigonometrical survey of the various
countries. All Central and Western
Europe, with Spain, Portugal and
Italy is seamed with triangles; in
Denmark, Norway and Sweden much
remains to be done, while Russia and
Turkey and Greece are almost entirely
white. Of course, without minute-surveying,
accurate maps aro impossible.

Another Comt Repealed.
Dr. Hiir, of Arlington, who discover
ed the comet reported in the Sun June
23d. states that he saw a comet with the
naked eye on Thursday night, at 0:40
o'clock. Its position was thirty degrees
above the horizon, and due west. That
part of the firmament in which tho
comet appeared was somewhat obscur
ed by clouds, but a rift in the clouds
disclosed it to the eve. The tail ap-
f eared quite long and rather luminous,
n position it was vertical, or perpen
dicular to the horizon. The comet dis
covered by Prof. Swift Wednesday
night was in the' northern heavens,
moving westward. This comet is de
scribed as being very faint,' and having
no tail. If Dr. Hill's comet should
prove to be distinct from Prof. Swift's,
this will be the eighth comet discover
