WHO THE ASSASSIN IS. Washington, July 2.The Librarian of the Navy Department has been before the Attorney Ceueral. He states that Guitcau was one of lie supporters of those who made an effort to reak the unit rule in the Chicago Convention, and says that Guitcau was In tho habit of call ing at the Librarian's room and telling how he bad been treated by Secretary lllalnc. A Chicago dispatch says: There are many recollections of Charles J. Gulttcuu, which is Ids correct home, who lived hero several years, and acquired an unenviable reputation, Ho was at ono time on tho point of being married to nn estimable youn'r lady on tho South Side. but his character becumo known Just In tlmo to prevent such a calamity to tho young lady and licr family.

Mrs. l.ockwood did not make nnv efforts In his lichalf. Since leaving Mrs. Lock-nod's house he has been stopping at various places, never at n great length of time, for tho reason that he npeiired to liae no funds. He told one of the Ik larders nt Mrs. I.oekwood's that he cxtx'cted to lie npH)liited Minister to France, but did not desire It to Ixj known. Up to the day lioforc vestcnlav, when he registered nt the Hlggs llouv, Gulteaii had Ik-cii stopping for the lat six weeks with no luggage but n paper lox nt 020 Fourteenth street. The theory has many ndherents that tho attempted ns.ihiatlnn wns not the work of a lunatic, hut the result of n plot inueli dccKT nnd darker than w ns suspected. It Is cited In support of this theory that (lulteail urrauged licforehand with the haikmnii to bo hi readiness to drive hltn swiftly In the direction of tho Congressional ennctery lis he made his ni caroiice on returning fnim the depot. In tlic meant line he left n bundle of papers in the bauds of u Imv, wlthn view It is maintained to creat ing n biilef In his infinity In the event of his capture. Guitcau said on his wuy to Jail that the President's assassination was premeditated, and Hint he went to Long ltr.inch tor tlio pur pose of shooting him there, and was deterred try the enfeebled and saddened condition of Mrs. (inrllcld, which nppenlcd so strongly tolilsscnsn of humanity that he had come back without carrying out his Intention. Those by whom Gtllteaii has been examined since tho shooting say he shows no sMiiptonis of Insanity, nnd Ills understood that tlio letter that has already Iktii telegraphed was addressed to "Tho White House'' Is only n document In collection, which sunnorts the tiicorr of Insanity. It Is retnirted that Guitcau had nu accomplice, whose descrip tion Is In the hands of the imiIIcc, and further developments are anxiously looked for. Kx-riuur iiknson's stouy. Washinoton. July. 2. As to the shooting nt thede)t, llensoii, ex-Chief of tho Secret Ser vice, who hnp)cncd to lie standing near, savsho heard tho shots, rushed to the assassin, and Just ns Guitcau wns about to raise hU pistol, with three chambers still loaded (to shoot Secretary lllalmvlt Is thought), throttled him nnd threw him to the ground.

The latter Is vcrv calm and collected, but In tensely lilc. Doctors were summoned by tele phone and telegraph, and Dr. lllls speedily u- pcared Uhii tlio scene. mere soon loiioweii lilm a score of tho most prominent physicians in the city. Dr. Hllss at first s.ild, "H Is a safe wound." After ho had watched the t'rcsl dent for n few moments, ho suld with great thoughtfuhiess, "It Is not necessarily n mortal wound," and so on. After that Col. Hubert Ingersoll was admitted to the room and tho President stretched out his hand, and In n voice; not strong said! "J am glad vou havo come, Col. Ingersoll said: "Are you In paint" The President answered : "I feel n prickly sensation in my feet." One of tlic physicians said that the prickly sensation was not n good symptom. A gentleman, who was an eyc-wltncss of the attempted assassination gives tho following statement of the occurence: I was coining down Pennsylvania Avenue when I sawn car riage coming up tho nvenuc, tho horses running so fast that I thought that they were running away, out, wncn tlio carriage arrived in Iront ot me, a man put his head out of tho window mid said: "Facter, faster! damn It 1" After hear ing this remark I thought there was something wrong and ran after the carriage. When it reached the depot a man Jumped out and en tered tho ladles' room. He had not been thero more than three minutes when tho President arrived and stepped out of his carriage and en tered the ladles' room. Tho President, after passing through tho door, was Just turning the corner of u seat, when the assassin, who was standing on the left of the door, tired the ball which struck tho President In the luck, uud ho fell forward. I ran Into tlio depot. Just then tho assassin tired ngaln while tho President was falling. The moment tho President fell, n policeman, who had been standing nt the denot door keening tho . way clear for the President unit lilsoai-ir. eralu bed the assassin by tho neck, nnd as lie'lmt tied lilm nut of tho depot another policeman came to hl assistance.

General Sherman then came and call ed an ambulance to carry tho President to tho White House. A sjicctator thus describes tho removal of tho President to tho White Home : Tho President lay In an ambulance propped un with pillows, and with his right arm drawn over his head. Ills face was ashy white but bore a calm and placid look. Ho seemed per- icciiy concious and opened ms eyes lrequcnuy.

Herald he had been contemplating the assassination for six weeks, and was forced Into It by un Inspiration from God, thut lie did It for (Mimical purposes and through political motives.

Ho says he had fired twice," but tlio pistol made such a loud reimrt uud kicked so hard that he was nfrald of It uud did not tiro again, nnd that ho reloaded and did not shoot it ngaln until ho shot tho President, He says he took the best aim ho could when ho fired at the President, Intending to shoot him through tho bruin, hut ho at once saw that hu might miss, and the next effort wns to shoot at the President's henrt. When he snw tho President full hu believed bo hud shot lilm lu the heart uud did not the again.
