THE TREASURY rOltTTOLIO.
WASHINGTON , 'October 21. It is
stated positively that the president ,
before going to Yorktbwn , tendered
the treasury portfolio to ex-Governor
Morgan , of Now York , and up to this
hour no answer has been received , al
though it may have come to hand , as
the president lias not had time to look
at his mail. A reporter of'the Na
tional Associated-Press called at ox-
Governor Morgan's ollico this morn
ing , and found him there. In answer
to a , direct question ho said that ho
would consider it a breach of trust to
give any information on the subject.
If ho had accepted , ho thought the
president would like to send it to the
senate before it ivas known to any
newspaper , and if ho had declined it
ho thought the president would likoto
have the opportunity to ofier
the position to aomo one else
before it became publicly known.
( JUITKAU'S CASE.
District Attorney Gorl hill and Sco
ville , counsel for Guiteuu , were in the
criminal court to-day in reference to
the case. Judge Cox said ho would
consult with counsel and appoint some
one to assist the defense.
To-day Judge Cox rendered a de
cision upon thu request of Scoville to
have the court summon witnesses lor
the defense. After reviewing the law
recited by Scoville , the judge Giiid ho
felt justitied in the decision that the
court may summon the neces
sary witnesses for the defense , but
reserved a decision us to the character
and number of the witnesses necessary.
Scoville , counsel for Guitcau , has
received numerous replies from Now
York ulono to his appeal for testimony
as to Guitoau's insanity , and thinks
ho will bo able to get all the witnesses
ho needs. Ho has received u letter
from A. . McDonald , medical super
intendent of the New York city asy
lum for the insane , wondering horV ho
got the idea of the doctors favoring
the plea of insanity. Scoville re
plied that a friend had given him Dr.
McDonald's name an that of u useful
witness , but had not intended
to convoy the idea thr.t the
doctor had offered to assist
in the defense of the prisoner. The
questions of the assisting counsel and
the character and number of wit
nesses the court will summon for the
defense are expected to bo settled to
morrow. In regard to some pub
lished statements concerning the po
litical aspect of the case , Scoville , in
reply , says ; "I wish to say once for
all that I have no information or be
lief that any statesman , politician or
any other person than Guiteau him-
selt had any intimation before
the shooting that ho contemplated
the act. Afy position is simply
that the fierce contest waged by the
stalwarts against Garfiold's adminis
tration , with no such design of the ac
tors , resulted in worrying upon a
deceased mind to the commission pf
the act. The crime of murder is not
therefore charged against politicians.
There is only a crime against the
peace and welfare of society , which is
made manifest in a causeless und bit
ter fight against a prpniclont elected
by a people in thu discharge of his
public duties and seeking to maintain
his high prerogatives.
LIFE OP ( unman TO nn punusitnn.
Col. Rockwell has received the fol
lowing letter from Mr..GarKoldwhich
is furnished the press for publication :
MENTOJI , Ohio , October 21 , 1881
DKAU COL. IlocitwELt : It is my wish
that nn account of the lifo and an ap
propriate collection of literaturewhich
remains of Gen. Garfield , bo published
after that careful consideration and
preparation BO manifestly necessary.
To that end I request that you will
at once , in some public manner , an
nounce that it is my purpose to cause
this work to bo done nt , the earliest
practicable time and of which duo notice -
tico will bo given. Tory sincerely
yours , LWIIKTIA 11. GAUKIKU ) .
With regard to the foregoing , Col
onel llockwoll makes the following
statement : So that those boat ac
quainted with the great capacity for
tlio work and the vast versatility of
Gen. Garfield , the extent , variety , and
orderly arrangement of his intellec
tual estate may fully appre
ciate its value , and behov
ing that the most enduring monument
ment of the hito president must
be erected upon the granite
foundation of what ho said and did
and was , Mrs. Garfield proposes an
affectionate and careful work in this
direction. Such a monument , therefore -
fore , illustrating u lito which cannot
bo written until the world was moved
far enough from him to take in the
great grandeur of his career and char
acter , may bo expected only after
matured and deliberate work , and as
coming from Mrs. Garfiold's sanction
and authority.

I'EUJIISSION OIUNTKl )
President Arthur and Secretary
Kirkwood to-day granted the necessary
permission for the right , of way for tlio
extension of the Chicago , Texas &
Michigan Central and St. Louis &
San Francisco railroads through the
Choctaw Nation. These companies
are building southwest to Texas and
Mexico , and must pass through the
Choctaw Nation's territory in order to
complete their lines. The Choctaw
council is now in session , and it is un
derstood are willing to irnmt the de
sired right of'way , but it was neces
sary forthem , to obtain the pnnnifision
of the secretary of the interior and
president , as they have supervisoiy
power over the Indian Nations.
HOWOATE'S CASE.
Captain H. W. Howpate will plead
to-morrow to the indictment against
him. The indictment numbers 74
counts , the witnesses being govern
ment clerks and minor olliciuU who
kept the accounts by which the em
bezzlement was discovered. An in
dictment had been returned , and at
the request of District Attorney Cork-
hill and in the absence of counsel for
the defendant thu'captain was called.

and French visitors by to-morrow at
11 o'clock. The German visitors are
to' bo sumptuously entertained by
their countrymen in the District on
Sunday. Governor Cullom and staff ,
of Illinois , start homo to-morrow.
NO NOMINATIONS THIS WEEK.
President Arthur stated definitely
to-day that ho should submit no cabi
net nominations to the sonata this
week. This gives slate makers a
new lease of life. A member of the
official family of the president stated
this evening that ho very much
doubted if any cabinet nominations
would bo sent to the present session of
the senate. Ho thinks that the presi
dent intends to make no cabinet
changes until compelled to , which
moans until vacancies occur.
The same person expects
Windom to remain in for a while ,
even after ho may bo elected to the
senate , since his credentials could
scarcely reach hero before thoadjourn-
inoift of the United States senate , and
since his term then would not neces
sarily begin until December next.
This program is advanced on the the
ory that the president being alike
anxious tc retain James temporarily
and give the treasury to New York
finally. He hopes Windom will re
main Ion1. ' enough for the star route
cases to be disposed of and the difli-
culty be thus bridged. Win
dom , however , stated to-day that
such a program has not even been of
fered , but the president is thought to
bo holding the portfolio for him only
if Morgan will not accept it. In re
gard to the latter there have been two
exactly opposite reports hero to-day.
Ono caino from a Nosy York gentle
man to the eil'ect that Gov. Morgan
was settling up his private business
preparatory to accepting the sec
retaryship of the treasury. The other
is to the effect that he hud written to
the president declining to accept a po
sition in the cabinet because it would
bo impossible at present for him to
Borer his connection with his largo
commercial business ho is in. No now
names came to the surface to day.
Messrs. Frelinghuyson , Lincoln , Sar

TVNKH TALKS.
General Tyner was spoken to this
evening , and referring to his remark
yesterday that ho declined to speak
about his removal Until after ho had

hiul loft his resignation in tlio hands

ENTllY OF COAL LAMM.
Secretary Kirkwood to-day decided
in regard to the entry of coal lands
near railroads and the price to be paid

should depend on the distinct ! from a
completed railroad at the date of
entry. If moro than 15 miles the
price should not bo less than S10 per
acre , and if within 15 miles , not less
than $20 per ton. This decision is
niado to meet cases that may arise
where the original claim is made be
fore the construction of the railroad
within the above limit , and when pay
ment is made before the'completion ' of
" " ' "
' e" '
Iho road.

CincAoo , October 21.Tho Daily
News thiH afternoon has a
thrilling account of the adventures
of Prof. King and Signal Ollicer Has-
hager. in their balloon voyage. The
Htory is briefly summarized as foi-
lows : Five minutes after leaving the
ground at Chicago they reached an
altitude of 4,000 feet. They first
moved southwest , but u little later as
cended into the upper current
and moved west , afterward
going northwest. They hung
iiuspeiulcd and swinging in
a circle for three hours over a place
they supposed to bo Peoria. Fri
day morning they found themselves
in Wisconsin , and trailed their drag
rope over a number of houses at
Spring Valley , where a man came out
and tired a shot at them. They then
passed over Platte Mounds , where they
were hold for half an hour , Loing
finally forced to throw out ballast to
escape the mounds. In passim ; over
Little Falls , Wis. , they c , mo so near
ground that they struck the trees and
took a largo portion of ono along aa
a Rouvenoir. They then rose 0G'00
feet in tlio air and wont through a
severe rain storm , which wet them
through and through. The last man
spoken t < had told them they were
forty miles from &t. Paul and
they finally concluded to land
coming to the bank of a river which
they supposed to bo the Mississippi.
They were dropped in a cranbery bog
and spent days in aimless wanderings
without food , sleeping in the woods ,
when they finally found themselves on
the banks of the Flambeau river and
were taken in charge by two hunters
who piloted them to Chippewa Falls.
The Man Who Wanted Gold.
National AmoclntcJ I'ITHS.
YOUNUSTOWN , 0. , October 21.
Jesse Baldwin , the old gentleman who
yesterday demanded and obtained gold
for seventeen thousand dollarsin gov * '
eminent bonds from the treasury do
p.irtment at Washington , and who was
nftorwcirds put in charge of the police
for safe keeping , is a resident of this
city. About twenty-livo years ago
Baldwin was thrown from a horse ,
having his head injured. Previous to
this ho was considered in every way
one of our most intellectual citizens.
Since his injuiy he has had a nvmia
for writing articles on finance and has
Hi'curcd ' the printing of these articles
in many lirst-cluss journals. Ho has
been until recently a heavy dealer in
coal and iron , and during the war
made qnito a fortune. In all his
dealings Jiohas always demanded gold
and would hound a man day and
night if ho was known to have a § 20
gold piece. It is known that on
Baldwin's farms , six miles from this
city , ho linn over § 100,000 worth of
gold buried , and it is the wonder of
the people that ho has not been
robbed or murdered at his country
residence years ago. Previous to
starting to Washington with his
bonds , he asked thu bank to give him
gold for them. Ho found that ho
could save four dollars by going to
Washington for the gold. Ho re
turned safely this evening with three
satchels full of gold pieces.

OLADSTQNE'S MVUATIONB.
LONDON , October 21. Mr. Gowon ,
In an editorial in The Newcastle
Chronicle , saya : "Not so many years
ujfo , Mr. GlatiatDno wrota ad tillowa :
'The prisoners in the kingdom of
Naples , arrested and imprisoned with
out duo legal process were in viiat pro
portion not tried at all , and when
they wore tried were so badly treated
by exceptional and not regular tri
bunals , that when they were con
demned they we're condemned not by
the f roe verdict of a popular body ,
but .by the sentences of judges de
pendent upon the government
For their bread , a government
noreover whoso power rested on
liigrant breaches of a written legal
constitution of the country. " The
irimo minister in his time played
nany parts , but oven those familiar
with Ins gyrations were not , perhaps ,
iwaro of the rapid transformation of
: UH opinions on the treatment of polit
ical prisoners. It is true that the men
fur whom ho pleaded years ago were
jtrangars at a distance whereas , those
ho now imprisons are follow country
men a near distinction may reconcile
the difference with which cases uro
treated to the sublime and versatile
intellect of Mr. Gladstone , but to
plain men it is not so apparent.
AN AIHIUKSH TO AMK1LIUAN LBACIUKS.
NKW YORK , October 21. The fol
lowing address will bo issued tomorrow
row t'toin the ollieo of The Irish
World to brunches of the land and
industrial leagues of this country :
To lliu IrMi National Land ami Industrial
I.caKiRS of America :
UKOTHUUH : Engliah despotism 1ms
outlawed the land league , but the
spirit of the urgunizatioii in inde
structible. The movement cannot be
suppressed. In order to kill the
vitalizing principled implanted in
Lhe mind of Ireland by this
agitation , it IB first necessary to
exterminate the Irish pcrplp them
selves. Nor would the diabolical
effort succeed even then. There is a
new Ireland this proclamation cannot
iflcct. America is the unassailable
base of operations. In truth , war
linn just commenced in downright ear
nest. England and Ireland are now
face to face. Nothjng rash or foolish
should be attempted , but every on-
[ lortunity to strike England morally
or physically ouyh * . to bo taken ad
vantage of. Gladstones bun sown
wind , let him reap the whirl
wind. The point which The
Irish World has urged all along ; "no
rent" is now adopted and The Irish
World and its constituency from
Maine to California will support the
land league with redoubled energy
and zeal unparalleled. Already you
who made this journal the channel of
your offerings to the land league liavo
Hubscribed $100,000 to the land
league , but , respectable as thin is , it
is a * but a drop in the bucket
to what wo can and must contribute.
You are 9,000 , leagues stronu. Now
i the time for you to show your
strength , We. pledged ourselves to
the land league in convention assem
bled If it would prosecute war on
the no rent program we would re
double dur efforts iu itn .behalf. The
no rent banner is unfurled. It now
rums in for ua to fulfil our pledge.
Hold public meetings , increase the
mumbonthip of your branches , sent
out collectors into the ward ;
mid parishes , promptly forwuri
to us all monnys which
The Irish \Vorld will ( lush by cable to
Mr. Kgan in Paris : Do these things
and you will RIVO now hope to the
people of Ireland who arc now en-
cngod in a life and death trugglo
with landlordism and alien rule and
are bravely working out their political
salvation. God defend thu right.

No Abatement of the Floods
in the Mississippi River.
Railroad Traffic Suspended fortho
Present.
CIUCAOO , October 21. Advices this
morning from Quincy indicate that
there is no material' change in the sit
uation along the river at that point ,
excepting that the flood is steadily
advancmp , the river having risen
seven inches iiv the past 24 hours.
The Hannibal & .St. Joe , the Quincy ,
'Missouri & Pacific and the St. Louis'
Keokuk & Northwestern trackson
the Missouri side of the river , are un
der water , and all trains are aban
doned for the present. A break is
reported in the Indian grave levee ,
Hixteon miles aboveQuinoy , but thu
cravasso in not serious , t&o backwater
from Quincy bny having already
Hooded a wide extant ofi country ex
tending several miiemtq tlio north of
Quincy along the Spy. Tlio dostruc-
, ion is complete , the water from this
jrovasso west of Ilockport gradually
jxtonding and inundating the line
arming country protected , by the em-
Kinkment.
Last night the Sny levee broke at n
joint seventeen miles below East Uan-
libal , and the watuc-is pouring in and.
lacking up over the bottom lands.
Unless there is a speedy fall the
valor may bo expected to cover all
ho lowlands back of the levee as fai-
ip as East Hannibal. Tlio break
11 the levee is said by Lovco
Jommissionor Murray to bp 200 feet
ii width , and the water , being almost
; o tlio top of the levee embankment ,
u pouring through with a roar and iu
iif.li that can be heaud for miles. No
definite estimate of thu-losses can yet
je obtained , but thie corn still re
naming on the bottoms will bo almost
.otally destroyed. The levee abovoj
liia place is still unbroken , but ut ono
loint nearly/ opposite is sloughing oflT
ind hourly growing weaker. jTho
river hero hoa risen cloven inches in
