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.

flatly contradicted tho teitlmony of the defense
Hint her mother, Mrs. Maynard was Insane.

In regard to It.
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."
BcovlIIo expostulated with him, but he retort
ed, In the most vicious manner, "Shut up and
mind your business; I know whatl am doing."
Witness was questioned with regard to vari
ous members ot his family, and stated post-
1 1 Vfl V t.hnf lIlAnnrn. mn Indlfi.ilnn. n I . 1
ty In anv of them. Speaking of the prisoner's
father, L. W. 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. ' f
Bcoyllle objected on the ground that the bur
den of proof rested with the Government. Tho

Guiteau hero broke In exrllAllr

Corkhill desired the court to restrain the

"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.

You keep quiet and mind your own business,
I don't waut any more talk from you In this
cose. 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

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 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

morbid mentally throughout his life und was

Davldge said only that his treatment must
have been chiefly ot horses, and that he must

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

necessary. I want to thunder this in the ears ot

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

Guiteau, Immensely amused by this retort,
with ii chuckle said: "He's a bad man for you,

were logical.

tho evident purpose of discrediting his direct
testimony, out spuzKn was more tban a match

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

neau. l trot tbe hat but vou don't nav for It."
Corkhlll Oh. no: tho irovernment. will li-on

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

American people are beginning to ,tako tho

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

were supposed to entertain the opposite opinion
from hlnuclf on tho nuestlnn nf ihn iri..inF,

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

Judge Cox asked what the witness meant by

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

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."
