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

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

stattlltig fact wan proclaimed throughout

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.

"I don't csro If you don't. I have had mv

ipjlct.
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,

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

Then adding after a short pause: "Ono word

statement on July 25th tho President was not
fatally shot. We don't want to press the sub

ter a brief pause Gulteau added t "That's nil

to the point. I want it understood that 1 ap

of the Deity, nnd I expect him to take caro of

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

The witness described minutely the arrival of
tho President's carriage nnd tho entrance into
the depot. His evidence In this particular cx
nctly corroliorated that of Secretary Maine's.
Soon after tho President passed Into the depot

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

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
