James Murri . , 'Esq.,late of . Chicago
and partner, in the wealthy firm of
igtilitiinisbife about it; he had' never
been sodisagreeably certain of snob a,
fact before. Moreover, he was lost, 'a
stranger in a strange land.' A visage
much elongated, and the expression
thereon of intense disgutt at this situa
tion,. were correct , exponents of Mr.
Murray's feelings. -
Reaching C— that morning by en
early train, and - finding that Sack Carl
ton (the friend to whom he was: :on a
visit,) had failed to meet him, he decid
ed on walking the five miles to Carlton
House, this decision being influenced
by the fact- that C— was minus a
livery stable. Directors .for the way
were'ati numerous and communicative,
though hardly as lucid and brief, as ' ,
could be desired.. After being considJr
ably puzzled by the variety of sugges
tions offered, he finally started - on one
of the, apparently, shortest and clearest
For five hours , he wandered through a
labyrinth i of pathes, up hillsides almopt
perpendicular, down the same; over
streams via slippery logs, throngh jungle
worthy 4 place in Africa;- in short, he
experien&d all the horrors of estranger
lost in the 'backwoods' of Missouri.
Some: exclamations not entirely
euphoniobs or good natured escaped his
lips as growing weary, he stumbled over
the loose stones which afforded but un
certain footing along the rough path=
way. •At length, through a clump of
young hawthorn trees he sighted a
house; a'very small house, but it 'mark
the abode of man,' and James felt that
he had never before appreciated - his fel-
, low beings. The wall of underbrush
and briars between him and his goal
made the task of- approaching
_. it 'seem
as the work of Sisyphus. - Success
crowned his efforts finally, and he stood
in dismayed astonishment liefoi'e a
diminutive building having a 'rude !lat
tice work near the root in lien of win
dows, and one low floor, padlocked.
Was it a hen-house, or— Ali; his
memory was illuminated by ids observ
ing that the stream' flowed: directly
through this e unique building, and he
recollected Carlton's description ) of a
'spring-house.' The key was : in the
lock. Visions floated before him of
cool, ric h milk and other tempting re
me treatnts waiting inside. His eon
' science made some slight resistance to
his entrance, but he silenced it with,—
'I cannot help it if
.I am , arrested for
petty larceny. A desperate man knows
no law.' He turned the key , and steep ,
ed in hesitatingly. 'After all, perhaps
I am on Jack's premises.' ho reflected,
and the thought removed his het scru
How delightfully refreshing was the
air inside! The stream' flowed over
hilf the pebbly floor, a tiny bank of
stones separating the remainder. Around
the walls were shelves loaded with
neatly labled jars. Others carefully
covered, but unlabled, were standing'in
the stream. '
Jamei threw hiniself, with a sigh of
relief upon the gravel beside the stream,

signing himself to the state of affairs
with what patience he could command,
Mr. Murray proceeded to seat himself a
la torque, and on a sheet from his note•
book succeeded in drawing tolerable
likenesses iof his fair captress, the
spring-house, and himself.
Meantime, Miss Carlton, (James was
not mistaken in her identify), after lock

Carlton House, in. hastd to inform her
brother how - she had captured a iero l
Mous looking robber; and opining on
the way that this must be the one ivhck
had diminished her stock of poultry and
carried off one - of Jack's - -lambs a few
nights ago, she did not hesitate to wish

whistle reaching her ears increased the .
alarm which had subsided on seeing
him safely locked up. Of course that
was a sound uy waren nis accomplices
were called together, she decided, and ,
tenor lent extra: speed to her feet.
Reaching li:me she was' greatly dis
tressed to find Jack away; he. had re

Miss Carlton was greatly frightened

'Jack,' said May; speaking with some

'Down at the spring-house l' said
Jack, staring at her for further enlight
enment, arid finding her face cooly
impenetrable. 'Then he came while I
was gone. Why could you not tell me
at once ? But What is he doing there ?
Why does he not . come in ? You do

May„,half laughing, half crying, gave
him the padlock key, with the laconic
'You bad better let him Out.'
So saying, Miss May flitted away to
the culinary department, 'on hospitable

her chagnn', et having looked up said

Jack looked from her retreating form

he hurried to the noor and unlocked it.
James Murray, Jr., was discovered

ter teUing of his ineffectual attemqts to
secure the recognition of President
Garfiefd and his cabinet, he relates
with fiendish-deliberation the story of .
his crime of July 2d. We condense
from the N. Y. Herald as follows;
• I never had • a personal interview
with the President on .the subject of
he Paris consulship except once, and
that wee when I handed him my speech
and told him that I would like the
Paris consulship. which was , about the
7th or Bth of March. He was. inauga- .
rated on Friday and ; it was about the
middle of the 'week following his inau
guration.. The time that I was -pres
sing the Paris consulship began about
ted, I should say, about the last of
April. 'During those weeks I was
It did not have the slightest influence
on me one way or the other in reference
to my removing the Preaident. I
conceived the idea of removing the
President pending the answer, and as
far as the Paris consulship had any
influence on my mind at all, it would
have'dererred me from the act, because
I expected as a matter of fact that I
would get the Paris consulship. My
conception of the idea Of removing the
President was, this: Mr. Conkling
resigned on Monday, May 16, • 1881.
On 'the following Wednesday I was in
bed, I think I retired about 8 o'clock.
I felt depressed and perplefed on ao•
count of the political situation, and I
retired much earlier, than' usual. I
felt wearied in mind and .• , body, and I
was in my bed about' nine o'clock and
was thinking over the political siteti
tion, and the idea flashed through - may
brain that if the President was out of
the way everything would go better.
At first this'was a mere impression. II
startle] me, but the next morning, it
came to me with renewed force, and I
began to read the papers with my eye
on the postibility that the President
would have to go, and_ the more I read,
the more saw the complication of
public) affairs,; the more I was impressed
with the necessity of removing him.
This think continued for about two
weeks. I kept reading the papers and
kept beingimpressed, and the idea kept
bearing and bearing and bearing down

have never had any final answer either
from the President or from Mr. Milne
in reference to the Paris consulship.
V: • : 0 II:11Z :
Two weeks after I conceived the idea
my mind was thoronghly settled on the
intention to remove the President: I
sent toßostOn for a copy of my book,
"The Truth," and I spent a week in
inch that it- Would
probably have "large sale on - account
of the notoriety that the act of 'remov
ing the President would give me, and I
wished the book to go out to the pub
lic in firopPx shape. Another
tion was to think the matter all out in
detail and to - buy a revolv er, - and'-,to
prepare myself for executing. the idea.
This required some two- or three :
weeks, and I gave my entire time and
mind in preparing myself to execute
the coneeptiotrof removing the Presi
dept. I never toentioned the concep
tion to "living son!.
Alter I had mar% up my mind to re
move him, the idea when, I should - re
move him pressed me, and I was seme
what confused on that. I knew that
it would not do to go to the White
House and attempt it, because there
Were to many of his employees about,
and I looked around for several days to
try and get a good chance , at him; and
one Sunday (Oro Sunday before he
went to Long Branch) I went to his
church in the mOrning. It is a small
fr4ae building, and I stood there at
the door a moment. I was a little late;
the service-bad 'progressed about one=
third: rooticed the sitting
near an open window about three feet
from the ground,. i and I thought to, my
self, '''ltbat Would be a good chance to
get him." I - intended ' te shoot , him
through the back of the head and let
the ball pass through the ceiling in
order that no one else should be in
juted. And there could not possibly
be a better place to remove a ''snan
than at his devotions. I had my revol
ver in My poseasion when I first went
b the church, having purchased it
about ten days before - the President's
going to Long B. h. This was the
Sunday prior to his ving for Long
Branch •on Saturday . siring that
whole week I.read themere carni n llir..
tnosiglit just what people wawa tam
and thought what a tremendous ex

thinking about it all the Week. I
made up my mind that the next Sun
I would certainly / shoot him if he
was in church and liot a good chance
at him. Thursday of the Es—me week
L noticed in the paper that he Was
going to Long Branch, and on the fol
lowing Saturday be did go to the
Branch for ,Mrs., Garfield's health. I
went to the depot tdl prepared to re
move him. I had- the revolver with
me. I had all my papers . nicely pre
- I spoke to a man about
• a car
riage to take me, as I told him, over
near the Congressional Cemetry. , He
said that he would take me over fsSr $2,
and seemed to be a very clever fellow
and glad to get the job. I got to the
depot about 9 o'clock, and waited there
until tha PrAskifint'a Whites 'Annex'
carriage drove np. About twenty-five
minutes after nine the President and
his carriage and servants and friends
came up; He got - out of his carriage.
I stood'in the ladies' room, about the'
middle of the room, watchibg- him.
Mrs. Garfield got out and they walked
through the ladies' room, and the pres
ence of Mrs, Garfield deterred me from
firing on him. I was all ready; my
mind was - all - made up; I had all my
papers with me. I had all the arrange
ments made to shoot him and to jump
into a carriage and drive over to the
jail., Mrs.Parileld lookedso thin and
clung so tenderly to the President's arm
that I did not have the heart to fire on
him. He passed right through the
ladies' reception room, through the
Main entrance, and took the cars.
I noticed in the papers he would be
back the first of the - week. I watched
the papers very carefully to see when
he would return, but he did not come
back that week, but hei did come back
on the folloling Monday. , I
I prepared Myself again, and went
to the depot again on Monday with my
revolver and my papers, but I did'' not
feel like firing on him. I simply - went
to. the _depot. I sat in the ladies'
waiting room. I got there ten or fif
teen minutes before the train time,
I waited and thought it all over, and
made up my mind that I would not
fire on him that day. I. did not feel
like it. - ~.
I examined my revolver to , see if it
was all right and took off the paper that
I had wrapped around it to keep the
moisture off. I waited five or six
minutes longer, sat down on a- seat in

I woke Ap abant 4 o'clock Saturdity

regard to removing the President; I had
not the slightest doubt about my duty
to the Lord and to the 4ineriean people
in trying to remove the President, and .
I want to , say here, as' emphatically as
words can make it, that, from the mo
&eat when I fully decided to remove
the' President, I have- never' s tad the
slightest shadow on my _mind; my pur
pose has been just as clear and - just ca
detrmined as anything could be.l be
lieve.that I was acting under a special
divine authority to remove him, , and
this Divine pressure was upon me from
the time when I fully resolved to remove
him until I actually shot him. It was
only by nerving myself to the utmost
that I did it at all, and I never had the .
s adt l ititialtV
Having , heard on Friday from the
papers'und alio by my inquiries • of the
doorkeeper of the White House, Fri
day evening, that the President , was go
ing to Long Brapili Saturday morning,
I resolved to •remove him at the depot.
I took my breakfast at theßiggs House
about 8 o'clock. I ate well and felt well
in body and mind. I went into Lafay
ette Square and sat there some little
time after breakfast, waiting for 'mine
o'clock to come, and then I went to thii
depot and I got there about 9:10. I
rode there from the park in a a ; 'bob
tailed' car. I left the car, walked up
to a bootblack, got my boots blacked,
and inquired for a man named John.
Taylor; whom, two weeks before I had
spoken to about taking me out toward
told me that Taylor's carriage was not
there, and there were three or four hack
mmen there wno were very anxious to
'serve me, and finally I noticed a 'colored
man and I• said to him, 'What will you
take me out to the Congressional Ceme
tery for ? He says, 'Well, I will take
you out there • for two dollars.' All
right,' saysl, 'if I want to use you I
will let yon know.' At that moment
;hese other hackmen were pressing me
:o get my business, and I said to them;
'Beep quiet; you are too fast on.thi.s,'
and I' told the colored man privately
that if I wanted his services I would
let him triow iri a few minutes. I then
went into the depotand took my private
papers, which I intended for the press
(including a revised edition of my book,
The Truth, a Companion of the Bible),
and stepped up to the news-stand,, and
asked the young man in charge if I could
leave those papers with him a few
moments, and he said, 'Certainly,' and
he took them and placed them up
against the wall on top of' some other
papers. This was - about 920, and I
went into. the ladies' waiting-room and
I looked around. 'Saw there were quite
a good many - people there in the depot
and carriages outside, but I did not see
