NKW YORK , February 1. A Phila
delphia special says the announce
ment was recently made that J. II.
Ridgeway , the patentee und builder
of refrigerators cars , had made over
tures to George Ecovillo for the purchase -
chase of the assassin Guitoau's ' body
after death. Rid eway recently re
ceived u letter from Scovillo saying
that the relatives regarded the propo
sition favorably. It now appears
that llidgeway's project is to build
ono of his cars especially for the pur-
.pose , fit it up elaborately , and trans
port Guiteau s body from ono end of
the country to the other , oxhibiti'n'g it
wherever n stop is made. The body
will bo perfectly preserved iii a frozen
condition. Ridgeway estinntes there
U a million dollars in the enterprise.
J. II. Ilidgoway says ho has received
the following letter with regard to his
proposition lo exhibit the acmains of
Guiteau :
" \VAHIUNOTON , D. C. , January 150 ,
1882. Your's of the 28th inst. re-
coived. The iclativc-a sire inclined
to regard your piopuuiiion favorably
in case of death. The brain wi'l ' have
to be removed and post mortem ex
amination made.
( Signed ) "GEOKOK SCOVII.LK. "
It is understood that Mr. Ridgfc-
wao gives the relatives 85,000 with a
percentage. He calculates this will
make the total price for the
corpse S-10,000 at least. If the
offer is accepted the body
would be preserved by a patent re
frigerating process , ice and salt being
the materials used. The exhibition
oar and rotrigorator will cost 830,000.
Mr. Ridgeway says that it will bo
elegantly carpeted and upholstered ,
and the metalic cooling apparatuswill
be concealed by rich hangings. It has
not yet been decided how the body will
be disposed of , but it will } > e arranged
so'as-to 'look as natural as possible.
The'fu'nrfwill be drassed as in life ,
and the features it is expected will
retain the expression as they were
immediately after they became fixed
in death. Mr. Ridgeway says this
will result from the state of perfect
preservation in which the corpse will
bo retained by the refrigerating appa
ratus. He says : "We will visit
all of thp chief cities of this country ,
after which we will go to Europe and
probably exhibit the body in all of
the principal cities of the continent.
I think we will do oven bettor finan
cially there than in this country. In
London especially I expect to
get largo returns. I wrote to Guiteau
soon after his trial began , making
a similar proposition to him. Ho re
plied , saying that lie was disposed to
regard my proposals with favor but
that he would have to refer me to his
counsel. I think there is no doubt
but that I shall set the body and I
am now making arrangements to se
cure the largest halls in the country. "
WASHINGTON. February L Dis
trict Attorney Corkhill says that Sco
villo is a worse crank than Guiteau if
thinks that the American pcoplo will
answer his address and contribute
money. Mr. Reed holds a very dit-
forent opinion as to Scovillo's ad
dress and says "I have
done about all I can do.
Mr. Scovillo's appeal states the
thing very well this morning. I have
done all I could for Guiteau in an
* V honorable and gentlemanly way.
I think that appeal of Mr. Scovillo's
is u good manly utterance. It may
not amount to anything. There are
people who 1 believe would like to
help him , but are afraid the public
clamor demand this man's execution. "
Both oilicers and privates at the
Washington barracks complain of the
service required of them In doing
' guard duty at the jail over Guiteau ,
'which U'oy consider unnecessary.
Said one of the officers to a local re
porter : "I wish that you would put
in a paragraph to the efiV.ct that
the small pox hospital is only
150 yards from the jail. Our men
have to march back and forth by it
everyday. There are 500 people in
thw garrison and suppose they should
bring the small pox hero. If you
print something about it the secretary
of war and other people up town will
see it. If they want us to guard
Guifeau why not bring him down
here ?
Mr. Scoville's attention being called
to the dispatches about the sale of
Guiteau's body to J. H. Ridgoway , of
Philadelphia , he took a pencil and
wrote as follows :
" 1 said the proposition would bo
entertained , if the time over arrived.
First , there mint be a post mortem
examination of the brain ; second ,
such disposition of the body as will bo
without objection to the relatives. No
indignities. I said no money derived
therefrom would over be used by his
relatives ; it would bo applied to pay.
ing his debts , and then to promote
thu care of insane people , "
Charles H. Reed , one of Guitoau's
counsel , to-night characterizes the
proposition concerning the oxhib tion
of Guiteau's body after execution , to
be shocking , monstrous and damnable ,
Ho thinks Scovillo haa shown bad
taste in over considering the disposi
tion of the body of a client.
Scovillo is evidently serious about
the proposed exhibition of Guitoau's
body , which is an indication Ihat there
is little hopes on his part of a non
trial. II is not likely the government
will permit such a course. The
authorities will probably hold the
body , as they did Booth's.
Cnie\oo , February 1. The atten
tion of Mrs. Scovillo was directed to
the dispatch from Philadelphia do'
tailing the arrangements of J , H.
Ridgoway to preserve and exhibit the
body throughout the country. The
dispatch scorned to indicate that thu
relatives of Iho assassin wore willing
such disposition should bo made of his
remains. After reading the dispatch ,
Mrs. Scovillo said : "I don't believe
anything of this kind has been done.
Wo have not got to the point of con
sidering what shall bo done with the
remains of my brother , whenever and
kowover ho may die. I shall take the
body and have a post mortem made
by exports of my own selection , I
alone shall decide as to the disposi
tion to be made of his remains , The
idea of exhibiting his body around
the country is horrible , and 1 wouldn't
have it done if wo were starving , and
wo have not reached that desperate
state of poverty yet. An ofl'or of ? 5- ,
000 cnsh was made to me
for the body of Charles ,
but I refused it. There isn't
enough money in the country to
buy it for the purpose of exhibition.
So far us ho is able to miiko legal dis
position of his body and of his eUbcts ,
ho has given them to mo. I wanted
him to make a will , but Mr. Scovillo
said ho could not do that as ho was
insane , and it would have no legal
force if ho should now bo induced to
make a will disposing of his body so
that it might bo put on exhibition. I
would contest its validity in court
just us I would contest the act of any
other insane man ( that affected mo.
But then people niud not put themselves
solves to too much trouble about this
matter. Charles Guiteau is not going
to bo hung. "
"Do you want me tp understand
that this dispatch with your husband's
name attached is bogus T'
"I don't know anything about thai.
1 am satisfied my husband would not
send such a dispatch without consult
ing me , and ho knows that such an
arrangement could not bo made with
out my consent. "

Special li < ) wt'h toTiih UKK.
SIDNEY , Neb. , February 1. A
murderous , cowardly shooting affair
occurred at Running Water ranche ,
ono hundred miles north of here , late
last night.y A bull whacker named
John Lewis wanted to run the rancho ,
and Mrs. Hughes , the proprietress , in
endeavoring lo eject him , was shot by
Lewis in the posterior , the ball of15
calibre , Colt's , lodging near the rec
tum. He fled in the darkness. No
truce could bo found of him. The
cow-boys seem hostile over the event ,
and a large posse of them started out
this morning after him , and his car
cass will probably dandle from a tree
if captured. This same Lewis killed
a cow-boy at Fort Robinson two
months ago , and by some means was
acquitted , and all supposed ho left the
country. His record throughout has
been villainous and tough.

A communication was received from

inquiry was : "If all claims for pen

is alloted to Mexican war claimants.
