It Is the second time In our history that a citizen chosen by the people of tho United States to dlschargo tho high nnd rcsjionslblo duties of President has fallen victim to a lawless assassin, but In tho former caso wo were emerging from the shadows of a long ami bloody ar. The country had been racked by commotion nnd stirred by civil feud throughout the length nnd breadth of -the land. Nearly every house had mourned Oinltras nf relatives or friends slain on the hotly contested battlefields of the Republic it was a danger that thought ful men had anticipated; tt wns n calamity that patriots feared; and when It came, with Its clrcud consequence.

Suddenly n stattlltig fact wan proclaimed throughout me unit una arnuuu uio worm mat the Pitsldcnt ot the United States had fallen n victim to the assassin's bullet at the Capital of the Nation. Murder under all circumstances and uiion all occasions Is shocking. Life, of which wo know so little and which we hold by so f rngtle n tenure, Is dear to us all nnd when It Is brought to a close not In tho usual order and courfo of nature, - but peculiarly by violence. No matter what may be the condition ot the jierson, the human mind Is appalled with terror when a man holding a position of eminence and power falls, a causeless victim to a murderous stroke. We rcalze still more the awfulncss of the deed which produces tho result." During the time occupied by the District At torney In delivering his argument, the prisoner assumed an nlr of apparent Indiltercnco nnd de voted himself to tho mottling papcrs-aniislgnc-them hurriedly. Tho argument was delivered by Col. Corkhlll In n very effective manner, tears filling the eyes of many In the audience, but the countenance, of the prisoner remained unchanged. Toward the close of the argument he laid bis newspaper aside and leaned back In his chair, covering bis eyes to conceal tho emotion 'which he un doubtedly felt. lie then drew a package of manuscript from his pocket and commenced writing in a hurried and nervous manner. The nrlsoner constantlr shook his bend in approval or disapproval of the statements mado In the argument oi v;orKnui; at one time no inter rupted tho District Attorney, which action was called to the attention of the Court by Judgo Porter, of tho counsel for the prosecution. , Judge Cox announced that It was within the power ot ttie Court to try the caro In 'the ab sence ot the prisoner and It he persisted In his turbulent remarks he would cause blm to be removed. Gulteau in response said: "I will cot do It again, your honor, but I have very deep feelings In tnls case." Laughter. 1 , Mis. Seovllle. sister of the nrlsoncr. cried bit- .terly during the delivery of the argument, nnd her little child could be seen appealing In an af fectionate manner with, 'Mammal mammal what la the matter!' At theconcluslon of Col. Corkhlll's argument thero was long and cont!n umI nnniausc. Secretary lllalnc was then called to tho stand by the counsel for tho Government, nnd tes tified that ho had known James A. Garfield from 18G3 to the time of his death. On reaching the depot on the morning of the assassination, tno President turned to say good-bsc, our, no insiBicu upon accompany followed almost immediately by another, and thinking there was polmo trouble touched thn President for tho nurnose of huirv. Ing htm onward. At this moment tho Presi dent threw up bis arm exclaiming: ".My God I what lsthlsl" Tbo Secretory, continuing He- tnlli-,1 the circumstances of the removal of tbo President to tho White House and other mat-tarsncrtalntnt- to the shootlne. all ot which has been published heretofore. Gulteau ho hod te nucstcd to discontinue his visits. IIo did not ee the assassin when be fired the fatal shot. Saw the body of President Garfield alter tils death In Franklin Cottage at Elberon, New Jer sey. Did not see tho Iwdy ntter It was brought to Washington. A numlicr of letters frcm tho fllmj nf tho Stite Iierartment were then Mentl fled by Secretary Blaine m having been received from tho prisoner, after which they were read UV ine District .attorney. Urxin reassembling In the afternoon the resi dent minister frjm Venezuela described tbo shooting. The prisoner Impressed him as wear ing a look of feir. Bcoille asked him how Gulteau wore his bat. Witness said on the side of his head. Gulteau Interrupted with "that Is false; I wear my hat this way," chang ing it from a iauntv stvle to nerfcctlv stralchl) and added "I wear It this way and don't go sneaking around." Nothing further was elic ited. Mrs. Sarah B. White, matron ot the Baltimore & Potomac waiting room, explained the circum stances ot tho assassination as heretofore published: I here recognize Gulteau as the person who fired the shot, and hod seen htm walking about the gentlemen's room before Garfield arrived. Did not see the pistol In the assassin's hands when she went to the Presi dent's assistance. Gulteau was only about 8 Icct back ot tbo president wiicn lie fired. Haw yed ladles In tho room. 8he said Gulteau wore the east rn corridors nnd patiently nwnltcd nil mission to the unitt room. At t) o'clock the prison van drove up, nnd Gulteau, clutching a large bundle of papers In lils manacled hands, was shulllcd hurriedly In to tho building. There was n maiked absence of noisy demonstrations on tl e part of the by stundcrs, yet Gulteau plainly t ctrayed tho fear of nuddcu violence which nlwnys marks his movements whenever ho deems filmtclf at nil cxiKiscd to danger. He wns taken to the pris oner's room, and devoted himself to the reading oi papers'! At 0:3Q the scats reserved for the general Rublle were entirely filled four-fifths of them cing filled with ladles. Upon tho opening of tho Court, Scovlllo re quested tho Court to lako some measures to prevent the prlsonsr from giving tho public his unauthorized communications, nnd nlso to pre vent annoying Interruptions by the prisoner In the court room. Thts brought on n scene, dur ing which Gulteau demanded that Scovlllc should go out of the case; that lie was no criminal lawyer, and had no tense; that he talked one thing to him In private and another in public Seovllle endeavored lo explain to the Court, but Guttc.tu became more nnd more excited, nnd addressed himself alternately to the Court, to Scovlllo nnd to the ballffs who were cndcavolng to keep htm nulet. To the Court he said: "Ircpresnt mvseir, your honor, nnd I shall dons I plcnso about counsel." Then turning to Scovlllo: "You have no capicltv, and I won't have you manago my case." Then turning to tho bailiffs, he shouted : "You mind your business, you confounded fools; you uln't got no sense." The Court ngrln stated to the prisoner, In decided terms, that ho would order hli removal nnd proceed In his absence. To this Gulteau shouted excitedly: "I don't enre if you do. The Court In bane will reverse you. nnd I will get n trial. You havo got no right to remove me." Tho court replied, In terms which seemed to convlneo Gulteau of their slnetrty: "Very well. I shall do so If u persist Innnv more dis turbance, nnd thero nropreccdetilsln this court for such rulings." A whispered consultation between Gulteau nnd Scovlllo followed, nnd the former, appar ently convinced, subsided Into nhsolute quiet and devoted himself to his papers. District Attorney Corkhlll then offered in evidence certain letters which weio yestcrdnv read to Blaine and Identified by him. Ed. A". Wngncr wns then called na a witness, but failed to respond. Joteph K. 8hnrpo was then sworn : Did not see tho shooting, but saw tho prisoner attempt Ingto cscopo and witnessed the arrest. Scvernl witnesses were then examined who minutely described the shooting and GuitcauV actions. Ono witness heard Llm say, as he was being taken to Jail, "I am a stalwart and Arthur is now rresiucni." The District Attorney produced a nlstol nnd showed It to the depot policeman, who was on the stand. Tho latter readily Identified It as the ono taken from Gulteau. Tho pistol was examined by the Jury. Edmund D. Diibarry witnessed the shootlne. and described the scenes connected thcrcwltn. In his opinion Gulteau bad a bad face. Seovllle desired tuts portion oi the evidence be taken and stricken out, unless witness would state In what pnttcularfcature tho prisoner had a nau race. Witness Insisted that was his Imnresslon from ine prisoner's general appearance.

Immediately upon the opening OI court HOOinsnn criuci-eu saveieijr the discourtesy shown him by Scovlllc, and ask ed tun court ro renevo mm irom me case.

In the afternoon examination Byron An drews was called to the stand simply to Identi fy himself as a correspondent of the Chicago httr-Ortan. Helms received no papers from the prisoner, and did not know him. While waiting for another witness, Scovillo rose and snld : "I give notice now, Ttin ncr&Nsn is this case isissaxitt, nnd we will claim the burden of proof is on the prosecution.

Hero followed the testimony of witnesses con nected with the departments In relation to Gultcau's search for ofllce, and tbo leading of letters nddrcsscd l.y him to the President and heads of departments, nftcr which the court adjourned. Washington, Nov. 10. The crowd atiout the court house thin morning wns far greater than upon any former day. It was with tho greatest of dlfllcnlty that those whoso presence were needed In the court room could gain admission. To avoid nn otherwise Inevitable scramb'c It was found necessary to issuo tickets of adaits slou. and onlv ticket-holders are permitted to enter. At 9:40 the doors weio opened nnd In n few minutes every scat was occupied, the larger proportion of speclators being ladles. Gulteau airlvcd at 0 o'clock, nnd without a particular demonstration on the part of tbo crowd, was taken nt once to tho prisoners' room, where he nto n hearty b cakfast and expressed himself well satisfied with tho prncrcss of his case. Court opened without Incident, and George C. Mnynnrd, electrician, wns put on tho stand nnd tcstlll d to loaning Gulteau ten dollars otic time nnd fifteen another. Gulteau protested against thts line of evi dence, and did not think it anybody's business neiiicr no owcu ), or smno ono oweu mm; ".Muvnaru is a goou i- now, ami i owe mm f: that is all t ero Is In it." District Attorno' CorklilU desired to prove ny ino witness mat uuiteau uorrowcu tlio ur acil dollars with which he bought the revolver. On cross-examination, witness thought Gul teau looked so dy and hungry. The prltoner showed uracil feeling nnd frequently Inter rupted the witness by asserting that ho lived In first-class stylo and wore a seventy dollar suit ot cioines. tie Knew plenty oi pubilcmen nnd had all the money he wanted, ills mcntxj condition, not his physical, was at fault. ,Hu had n big load on Ids mind about that time, John O'Mcara testllled to sclllnir a nlstnl in Guiteau. Ho conld not identify It as there were thousands just llko It. Tho charges wero then drawn from the revolver, at tho sugges tion of the counsel and much to the relief of the audience. Pending the examination of the Istol Gulteau desired to announce to the burt that ho Invited John D. Townsend, of New YorK, nnd Leonard Swett and L. 8. Trude. of Chicago, to assist him. Thero was plentv of brains on the other side and he desired as much on his sldo In the Interest of Justice. "Another matter," he continued, "I deslro to call the at tention of tho court to. Is. that there are a num bcr of disreputable characters in the court and that somo threats of violence havo been made during tno wcck past. I havo no fears for my personal safety. Tho Chief of Police has kind ly furnished mo a body guard, and I wish to uotiiy an evil uisposeit persons tnai it tlicvat- this morning." Bcovlllo hero leaned over and whispered to him, when Gultea'i retorted sharp ly nnd with Impatience: "I won't stand It.

I think the true way Is, to Interject my statements nt tho case proceeds. I havo no set speech to make, but am much obliged to vour Honor nnd to counsel for the courtesy of this Invitation." Then adding after a short pause: "Ono word tnc question oi malpractice .uy iuca slmnlv this, that by the physician's own statement on July 25th tho President was not fatally shot. We don't want to press the sub ject, nor desire to have It go on record so that tticcourttn bancmay taice tiotico or it." Al ter a brief pause Gulteau added t "That's nil there is to the malpractice business, short and to the point. I want it understood that 1 ap pear ns mv own counsel here. I am the agent of the Deity, nnd I expect him to take caro of me. i imnK lie una mnnagcu u prcuy wen so far." The District Attorney then called Doctors Woodward nnd Lamb, who testified to tho hnrnctcr of the wound nnd that It wns n mor tal one. They identified tho ball which wns ex hibited to tho Jury ns tho one they hnd taken from the body of President Onrtlcld. The pro secution then rested their case nnd Gulteau wns nllowcd permission to be heard In opening his defense.

Thli Is the only wny I can get anything before the public to announce It In court." No objection was offered, and Gulteau was apparently satisfied nnd busied himself with writing, occasionally turning to Scovlllc to as sure him that Judge Magruder was a splendid man, and that be wanted him In the case. John Tavlor and Aqullla Barton, colored hack drivers, testified relative to Gultcau's wish to hlro a back of them to take him to the cemetery- Barton said that "the prisoner did not iook at, nil cxcitea or nci peculiar, no was perfectly cool, and told me to keep cool and not get cxciieu. mai no Knew wuai ne was looxing for. I think he looks a little thlner thou ho did." Gulteau. who appeared Interested and amused at the witness' replies, said: "Just here It might be well to say that I had to-day the first square meal since the second of July." This sany raised a inugu in wnieu uuiteau joineu heartily. WItncsa said. "There were two two snots and you wero running from tbo direction of the shooting. I will arrest you.

He comes nearer the truth than any of them."
