TEBBS ALKIRE, Attorney-at-Law, Oregon, Mo, A Bnllvoml Pool Mr. E. I 'Alexander, vioo president of tho Loulsvllio & Nashvlllo Railroad, In n, recent o.rguraont boforo a commit- teo of tho Alabama Legislature, gavo tho following explanation of a pool, as it is understood by railroad men: "A pool is really an ngroomont bo twoon competing lines at any given point, aboutto this effect: That if all will ngrco to maintain tho "oqunl rates, which havo boon gonorally arrived at by long r-trugglcs between tho com peting mnrkoti",in which etich has had all tholbonofit of its geographical posi tion and ndvnntngcs, then any lino which does an excess of business, abovo tho avorago of former years, and abovo what would seem its natural slinro of tho business, shall compensato tho lino which is deficient In somo satisfactory manner. It is hard to explain how such an effort to provont discriminations and fluctuations should occomo so gen orally misunderstood. "No man can study tho railroad prob lem intimatoly without becoming con vlnced that by far tho greatest good of tho greatest number would result from what tho railroad managers attempt in their pools. Tho misrepresentations of tholFpollcy and efforts doubtless conio from individuals who had boon ablo to turn railroad ware to their Individual ndvantago. In such wars largo ship pors havo an ndvantago over small ones. Tholr business is sought by robatcs and prlvato concessions, whilo small ship pors aro disregarded. Tho largo ship pers in thoso markets whero railroad wars havo been common aro thorcforo often loth to sco any arrangement by which rates will bo maintained, how ever low thoso rates may bo. In fact, largo shlppors soldom caro a straw whether ratos aro low or high; their profits for tho handling aro tho samo in any case Their wholo caro is to tccttro rates for their markets lowor than for thoso for competing markets, or rates for thomselvcs lowor than their neigh bors. Tho largo shippers, too, aro men of influonco and ability, and it is they who usually cry out against tho pool. So tho position of tho railroad man agers is that between tho upper and tho nothor mill&tono. Tho publio or out, ai d justly, against fluctuations, robatcs and unjust discriminations but to romovo tho tomptation to commit them. Tho only way to romovo thn temptation is to mako somo arrange ment equivalent to what is called a pool; but against tho pool, tho largo shlppors havo an especial antipathy. Tho pool cuts off their robatcs and special rates. No law could cut them off, bocauso thoy can always bo mado by somo part of tho lino which lies out of tho Stato, so that Stato law cannovcr roach it. And ovon a general law by Congress can bp ovaded In a hundro ! ways. "Thcro havo doubtless been com plaints of tho wrongs mndo by pools, but thoso complaints a:o universally that tho rates nro not positively high, but only comparatively high, as con trasted with tho rates from somo other places. "Quostlons of this sort aro of tho great est dcllcaoy and dlfllculty of adjustment. Tho twolvo apostles themselves could probably novor glvo satisfaction if thoy had to adjust tho ratos botweon twolvo compoting markets. It Is In fact, to my mind, rathora doubtful question wheth er thoro is any such thing as justlco in sottling such a question. To lllustrato oy an oxamplo away from homo, in which nono of us havo any in tore t or feeling. "Boston, for instanco, is furthorfrom ChicagothanNowYorkis. Now, should tho principlo over bo adopted of making all rates a pro rata per milo. tho rato from Chicago to Boston would bo so much higher than tho rato from Chica go to Now York that all tho foroign trado now going through tho former port, would bo diverted to tho latter. This, of couso, would bo an enormous injury to every interest of Boston. In fact, no such principlo ever could bo cr forced, for tho linos injuriously affected by It would novor submit to it, but would work at ratos far below the cost of transportation for years rather than glvo up their through business forover. nut wnatovor critlolsms may bo mado upon either tho purposes of tho railroad pools, or upon tho practical operations which havo takon plaoo un dor them at any point, thoy havo been resorted to by railroad managers as tho only solution which their oxpori onco In thceo matters has boon ablo to suggest; and ti nt any Imperfections or abuses havo boon tho result of noith or carolossnoss nor indlfforenco, but of tho inherent difllculties of tho problem itsolf." "And as an oarncst of their honost intent to corroot tho abuses, and to ar- rlvo at just and fair solutions of oucs tlons between conflicting interests, tho principlo of arbitration of such ques lions, ny tlio most dlsinton stod and compotont tribunals obtainable, is uni versally recognized and adopted; and h either tlio stato or tho National governments would provldo such tribun als tho railroad managers would snly bo too glad to avail tliomsolvos of tl.clr sorvicos." If wo would share in dlvino joys, wo must carofuily follow tho dlvino con duct. tV,2 .-K-tperleiace from itluny.

Scovllle objected to tho reply, "I never hoird of It" and n lively discussion ensued between Judgo Porter and Scovllle: uuueau uccamo enratteil at Judge I'orter and shouted I "Now hold your thunder till you get to tho Jury, Judge; you are doing this thing too much." b Judge Portoi, without noticing the outburst, continued In the most Impressive manner to argue the point, when Guiteau broke In again s "I'm notnrrlmlnnl. nn.1 T wntill n 4111 1 , convicted. I won't have that word. You Just uuiujuui i-iuiiueiico un jtm get ntinoiury."

Guiteau. witness said! "Mv Uncle Luther visited me quite frequently, anil I loved him with a tender affection. Our wholo family wcro delighted with bis lovely Christian character, and such a thought that be might In anyway bo of unsound mind nev er entered my licad.V Witness was subjected to a closo and critical cross-examination. She was asked If she enter tained any prejudice aga'nst having hereditary Insanity alleged In this defense, and replied! "1 object to any unfair statement being madenn that subject. Perhaps for the sake of my chll dren I might dislike to have It set up. For tnv self, facts can mako no difference." Jlcr cvi denco produced a marked sensation. Col. Corkhlll called George O. Maynard, who verlfled In several points in tlio testimony of ho preceding witness. After recess Frank Bartlett, of Chicago, was called. lie knew Mr. and Mrs. Scovllle, and had mot thn prisoner at Scoville's summer res tdcncolnlb78. Witness did not believe tho prisoner insane. Ono time Guiteau took part in atuh race, when he wa upset and ducked bv tho rest of thn gentlem n, and took It In good part. Guiteau, BKuiu uroKo oui unpauentiy, "What has that gotto do with what took place the 2d of July, Corkhlll! I havo had time to grow crnzy a hun dred times since this man saw me. That shows what stupid work is being dona by the prosccu. Hon. It you had for this Instead, tax-payers, you would do differently." Mrs, Bartlett (wife of th previous witness) never detected any signs whatever ot mental disturbance In tho prisoner. lie was always pollto and behaved Into a gentleman. On cross-examination Scovllle asked I "Do you remember onco at tho table a discussion upon some religious topic arose and Gult'cau took part, and ho became so violent they all left hlml ' ' A. No, I do not. Howard Durham, ot Boston, took the stand. Witness stated that on Nov. 18, 1870, the pris oner secured desk room In his ofllcc;and re mained there nearly two months, when, as he was behind with his rent, and witness did not like his style ot man, he requested htm to sur render his key. Prisoner told witness there was no money In theology, and he was going to practlcolaw. Corkhlll then offered the letter written by Guiteau to witness last June.

Witness stated that in all his conversation with the prisoner, and through all his relations with him, and his ob servations of his conduct, ho novcr suspected any Insanity In the prisoner. .John Palmer, of Saratoga Springs, testified Uiit Gultean boarded a week with him, and hod run away without paying his board. Tho District Attorney hero sent Judge Cox a communication received by him from tho Presi dent of tho United 8tatcs. The Judge, after readlnir It, cent It to BcovlIIo with thn rnmnrK that the paper contained tho President's an swers to bis (Scoville's) Interrogatories. . BcovlIIo read the answerss of President Arthur to the Interrogatories. To tho first and second quUittous, whether he knew tho prisoner, and how often ho had seen him. tho President re plied that ho knows hlm.and tbat ho has seen him at least ten times. To tho question as to whether ho had i vcr conversed with him, he replies! "None, excepting to return tho ordi nary salutation of tho day, and once or twico in answer to his request tbat. no do employed m tbo campaign as a spcaxcr ny tho Hepubllcan Bute Com mlttcc. ot Which I was tlio chairman."

Prisoner Ho never hml rwn.lnn in.

Do not recollect Its contents particu larly, excepting that It contained some claim of his having rendered somo Important services to tho Republican partv during tho Presidential campaign, and an appeal for the postponement of his trial to gtvehim tlmo to prepare his de fense."

Guiteau hero broke In exrllAllr out! "It is purely In tho nature of aconfes oionai. ni cAnnur is not an expert or a lawvcr. and I object to his telling the Jury and tho American people tho facts that I told him vcars acn In record to mv hlstorv." Tho Court ruled the evidenco could bo admlt- leu as lending ta snow the general character of tho prisoner. Corkhlll Did you ever sco anything in the I'uouiii'i Kjjuuiuuie msaniiv I Answer No, sir: I never did. Guiteau here broke Into onn of his nnl.c lur. angues, nnd despite the caution of tho Court and the expostulations of his counsel, pro cccdcd to express his opinion of Dr. McArthur In terms not at all delicate.

"ou go slow, Corkhlll; you are spotted, and as soon as this business Is over the President will removo you." Scovllle cross-examined tho witness, and be came very nngry and much excited at some of his replies. The testimony in chief was not shaken. A number of other witnesses gave testimony as to Gulteau's sanity, and among them D. wiu.i-nu cuaw, wno saia uuitcau told mm Ho mlirht kill somo big man and Imitate Wilkes Booth. Guiteau -That was olcht vcars ago. It Ins not n great dealt! do with this case, has ItCol oucl! (to Corkhlll).

It makes mo mail, ho continued, violent ly, to think the prosecution should attempt to ruin my professional character, when they know it Is a lie. It Is n shame that these men, Corkhlll and Porter, should slobber over my character. They havo been digging up my professional record, and they have not lound anythlhg against me, and they can't. I was straight In tho law business, und I want the American people to understand it. The only thing against me Is that I owe somo board bills and that I committed adultery In order to get rid of my n lfe. Tho Court (stcrnlv) That will do. ' Trlsoncr I'vo got through now; have made my final speech In this matter. It Is a dlscraco for Corkhlll to bring in this evidence. I have not known anything about this man Shaw for eight years, but when ho repeats this kind of testimony I say to him : "You uro a liar; low, dirty liar" I never had that kind of a conversation with yon and you know It. You claim to ban lWxl Chrlntlnn nun tnn That story Is ful-e from beginning to end, nnd you aro a sneaking liar. 'I hat is my opinion of you.

Benjamin Harrison, Unite States Senator from Indiana, testified that lie had met the pris oner a few tin es, had talked with him and re fused to help him.

Our conversations wcro gcnera'lv social. Adjourned until Monday. Washington., Dee. 12. In thn flnttMn nn.n Dr.E. O. BpUzka, of New York, testified that ho hod mado nervous and mi-ntal diseases a specially; nan lesiuicd as an expert twcnty-flvi times; examined Guiteau in tail yesterday, ant was satisl ed that ho was liisniin. Thn mnln features of tho prisoner's case wcro a tendency to form delusive opinions nnd morbid projects, and o strong Imbecility of judgment. While I have fo other evidenco than thn cTnmnalnn nt nis lace, i should navo no doubt that ho Is a morai imocciio, or moral monstrosity. Scovllle, In a hypothetical question, asked if the witness thought the nrhtnnnr Innnnn mi July 2. f The witness declined to answer the hypolhetl-l 1 about to marrv a wealthy lady, and wanted to cal question. Tho prisoner was Insane when hel)bc.Jow,?200. Witness did not' consider tbat examined him. and must have been more or less morbid mentally throughout his life und was probably insano on July 2d. Davldgo made some very pointed Inquiries as to the standing hnd-opportunities fnr nrnfa.. fes i'tcd .slonal requirements enjoyed by the witness, to that witness was a veterinary surgeon, ecovllle Said llQ nan no enilllH tn lut fiahnmi1 nf flinf nmui cujvint! uujcvicu. it naying been stated Davldge said only that his treatment must have been chiefly ot horses, and that he must be a horse doctor. ' Witness raised a laugh by saying he had not practiced much among asses, "hut when an ass with two legs asks stupid questions, I endeavor to treat him as he deserves." The witness visited the Jail as Prof. Brown, a phrenologist,' so as to talk to the prisoner una wares. Witness declined to express an opinion as to whether Guiteau was able to distinguish between right and wroug, or whether he was morally Irresponsible, but since tbe prisoner has been a lawyer he has always known tbe 01 qlnnry legal consequences of criminal acts. .Guiteau I haven't been a lawyer for five years. J udj;e. You see that can't help vou any. Witness wouldn't say auythlng about the condition of tho prisoner en July .2d. Guiteau There was no depravity about this case at all. I think. It ik a burning shame for the prosecution to harp upon that word "de pravity." I have been a consistent Christian all my life, and because I committed adultery to get rid Of a woman I did not love, It Is a burn ing shame for this prosecution to blacken my character. Despite the cries of "silence, sllenco and or der,' Uultcau continued to strike upon tho ta ble and shriek out "I am not afraid to go to the gallows, If Lord Almighty wishes mo to go there. I expect an act ot God that will blow this Court and the Jury out tbat window to protect me, If necessary. I want to thunder this in the ears ot tno American people." iiavldgo (wltn disgust) Oh; this pantomime business Is getting played out, dultcau, you aro played out, and your theory of prosecution, too.

With flashlnir eves anil nervous lllleranee. shouted, "There aro a good many poodlo dogs In tho press, and I want to express my con tempt for them. The hlgn-toned press of tho country arc beginning to express tho opinion that it would bo a crime to hang a man who was in tnycondltlou on tha&lot July, when I was Impelled upon tho President." Somo ono In tho room cried, "Shoot him now I" Cries ot "order" from tho bailiffs quieted tho disturbance, nnd Dr. Spltzkn again took the stand. Witness concluded that from the shapo of tho fa c and head, and thn defeetlvn entifnr. nation of tho facial muscles, and from tbo pro nounced deviation of the tongue to tho left; that the prisoner was born with unequal develop ment of the brains, and that his Insanity was i-uiiKi-iiiuii. n uness ticscriucu wun great par tlcularlty the pn ullarltlcs ot tho head formation, Wulch ha had detected In t m nrlnnner'n man. He thought that the Inequality In two sides nt the head in this cose was three times greater, than In the normal head. Inequality could be taken ns an Indication of moral Imbccl Ily only In proportion to Its degree. Witness continued. If I bad that man's (pointing to Guiteau) mean face to Judge by, I would call him a denraved man or an Insano man; but Introducing other jsciurs ui unequal iermauon oi tno neau and facial expression, and deviation ot tongue, I am of onlnlou the trouble Is of enncenltAl nrtirln. The closest attention was paid by Gultean to luuuviuvnrooi hub witness, anu nis counten ance plainly Indicated his satisfaction. The witness becoming wcarv was allowed to sit down, but Corkhlll Insisted upon his standing, as ho could not sco or hear him. Wltne,- stood up and said It was a trivial matter wheth er uorkiiin could sco or hear him Guiteau, Immensely amused by this retort, with ii chuckle said: "He's a bad man for you, .V..1.1.III . . . .. ' vviiuni, ,u tu gubDuiuQ uiuru ol mem." Witness, upon talking with the prisoner, found that ho based his conclusions ttnnn In. sano nud Improbable assumptions, but grant ing his assumptions to bo true, his conclusions were logical. Tho cross-examination wn enndiieleil will. tho evident purpose of discrediting his direct testimony, out spuzKn was more tban a match for his questioners. Corkhlll sharply questioned the witness re- garuing ine articles no contributed to the Met (ait Journal. A spicy colloquy followed, which tmltcau Intcrupted by shouting: "It seems to cause you considerable trouble. You had better cool off, Corkhlll; I haven't seen vou heated so before. It is three o'clock; wo' had better go home." Witness was asked If ho had not appeared aa expert in a certain case, anu alter taKlu a lee on ono side returned It and taken a larger one from the other side, witness wisely replied "You have no basis for such a question, and no man unre mane an assertion upon wnldi ho could found It." Guiteau agnln Intcrupted In great rage and In a voice which drowned others, yelled : "Tint's a very dirty question for you to ask, Corkhlll ; It Just suits your brains. I'm going to ask Arthur to kick you out of this caso. Why, this man Is one of the ftrstsclentlsts of tho country why, he would not condescend to spit on you, Corkhlll. You ate In bad "repute with every member of this bar. You are an unmitigated nuisance In this case " Witness, finally making himself heard, an swered most decidedly "No." Adjourned without concluding tho examina tion. Warden Crocker has received a number of anonymous letters, advising him to remove the Brisoner from tho wing of the jail In which ultcau Is confined, so that In the event of u dynamite explosion no life will bo endangered except Gulteau's. Washington, Dec 13. Dr. BpUzka resumed his testimony In the Guiteau case to-day. Cork hlll handed to the witness a slip of paper on which was drawn n diagram of a human head, and said: "Now, doctor, supposing this to bo a person's head. Will vou nlnnan nnlnt. iml in qualities to which you referred yesterday!" lieforo any reply could be mado Guiteau raised n laugh by saying: "'That accounts for It; a hatter came to seemethls mnrnlnm nn,i offered mo a hat If I would let him take mv neau. l trot tbe hat but vou don't nav for It." Corkhlll Oh. no: tho irovernment. will li-on to do so. I Upon a question being asked by Corkhlll, Guiteau broke in with: "I've been loiklm? nn your record, Corkhlll, nnd I'll show you upV" Subsequently Guiteau again Interrupted tho examination and shouted: "I sco that crank, lalmadgc, has been doing some sensational ousinees iu tins case. Ho bad better go glow. Ho has been before hla synod several times for lying, ami has the reputation In New York for visiting houses ot prostitution. I hnvn tm my eye on several of theso cranks and It they don't go slow I'll give somo more of them free advertising. The high-toned portlou of the American people are beginning to ,tako tho right view in this case." Witness thought the proper wav to summon expertswouid befor the Court to summon them irrct pecuvo oi tue cutnees ns to what their tes timony might be. Corkhlll Insisted that tho witness had attack ed tho charnc'craud honesty of the experts who were supposed to entertain the opposite opinion from hlnuclf on tho nuestlnn nf ihn iri..inF, snnlty. ' " Gultoiu interrupted In his most angry mood and sliiklng his head at Col. Corkhlll, shouted: "It's tho unanimous judgment of tho American pcoplo tlint you are a consumate' Jackass, Cork hll. Ill's gentleman Is an honest man, and If your skull was not so thick you would sco It." Witness desired to explain his position, snd said : "1 do not hesitate to reiterate my opinion that an expert who will In this court testily that the prisoner Is sane, Is (In my opinion) no ex pert, ,or a dishonest one." Dr. Fordyco Barktr, of New York, a dis tinguished physician, testified, defining Insan ity in us several piloses, ills comprehensive and positive conclusions all wm tviih thu theory of the prosecution. Judge Cox asked what the witness meant by irreslstlblo Impulse. Tho answer was. "Per versions of motion to such a degree as to pro duco conduct entirely at variance with tho indi vidual's former life, and to such a degreo as completely to control his will power, would con stitute an Irreslstablo impulse.'1 Guiteau asked : " Where a man is impollcd to commit enmo by an Impulso be cannot resUtd s he sCie or Insane!" 'oaii8cr was: "When that fnet ejn lie proved, sir, It's Insanity'." GulUnu -"That's Just mv case, sir,"(wlth an fllrot perfect satisfaction).

' Dr. Wlthrow is tho honored pastor of Park street Church, Boston, where I used to attend when I was there. He Is a very flee gentleman." Witness said that the prison er desired to deliver n lecture l.i his church In answer to Ingcrsoll, but witness declined to havo tho church used for that purpose.

Guiteau Ho didn't say that, Corkhlll; you must have slept well last night; that's the smartest thing you'vo said yet. Witness said that tho prisoner generally took part In discussions upon whatever subject mlghiho under discussion; that he was aKays critical and and accusative, rather than concil iatory and kind. Guiteau I always spoko to the point Incl slvo and gritty, that's me. There's no nonsense or romance In my composition; If there had been I might havo gono through this world more smoothly. It Is very evident to the mind of every one that tlio solo object of this kind of an examination Is to show I knew the dlffercnco between right and wrong. That has nothing whatever to do with this caso. Tho only ques tion Is whether or not my frco moral agency was destroyed when I was Impelled upon tho President. That's tho point, Judge, and It knp. ks the bottom out ot jour theory. After a short pauso ho broke out ngalu and with in creased vehemence : "I'm not here to save my neck from tho gallows; I'm here for vindica tion, for justlco and for right."
