A YEW DEPAR TUBE.
We publish elsewhere the reported
proceedings,of a meeting held at the
Continental Hotel ) Philadelphia, on
Wednesday of last week, at 'which a
Most timely and sensible movement
was taken in the right direction: by
the Independent Republicans who
believe that political reform can be
accomplished within party lines.
We most heartily approve of the
movement thus inaugurated and
will contribute . our best efforts
towards its success. It will be seen
that the essential aim is to rid the
Republican party of the State of the
domineering and tyranical rule `of
a corrupt combination of party bosses'
who have controlled the - party ma
chinery to impose upon popular
rights and tiample beneath their
feet the right of free and untrameled
expression through the priMaries of
the party. Harrisburg, Philadel
phia.and Allegheny, with the aid of
the Democratic counties of the State,
under the direction of Cameron,
Quay McManes and McGhee, banked
by the . State Administratiim, have
combined to rule the . Republican
party of the State and make its nom
inations, while the combination
does not represont one-third i:if the
popular vote of the party. Former
ly Bradford, Tioga, Lancaster, Ches.
ter,-and several other staunch Repub
lican counties were partially under
the control of the dominant central
ring. Bat happily Bradford and
Tioga, are taken out that category,
sud the other counties are' partially

The movement hks for its object
the exercise of vigilant efforts to
bring out the voice of the popular
majority of the party through the

jority shall be correctly represented

The essence of the movement is
I found in the following resolutions
unanimously adopted by the meeting.
The first was proposed by Charles
Emory Smith, of the Philadelphia
Frew and the: second by Hon.
Thomas M. Rayne, Member of Con

be deemed expedient in order to

said committee appoint a general

number of Senators and Represen

`We add obr earnest appeal to all
Republicans' to dilly consider the
importance of this movement. We
sanuot believe that any but - those
who wear the' solar of the bosses
about their necks, can see anything
in it to object i to. 11:y all right

gurated be shown in our next State
THE GUITEAU TRIAL.
The evidence on the part of the
Commonwealth was concluded on
Monday last and the prosecution
rested. The proaecution has fol
lowed but one line of testimony.
Secretary Blaine :was :the first wit
ness called . ; By him , the assassin
was identified and the shoOting
proven. It was also shown by this
witness that Gaiteau prior to July
last was a frequent caller at 'the
State Department and a persist ent
applicant, for the Paris Consil ship
until forbidden to trouble him fur
ther. Guiteau's letter to 'President
Garfield were produced in evidence,
appealing for an appointment and
finally,threatening that there "would
be trouble" if he did not receive it.
The Private secretary of the Presi
dent and other attachees of the
White House were" called to prove
Guiteau's persistent efforts to enter
the Executive Mansion after he had'
been refused admission, Thil testi
mony wasjollowed by the evidence
of others Who witnessed the shooting.
The policemen were examined as to
the particulars of his arrest. The
hackman with whom he bargained
on the fatal morning prior to the
shooting, to be taken to the Congres
victual Cemetery, which is near the
District 'jail, was called and detailed
the arrangement Guitani . made with
him. These witnesses proved by
their evidence conclusively the iden
tity of Guitean as the assassin. The
pistol 'with two empty chambers
was produced in court and identified
a 4 the one taken from him after itis
arrest. This evidence wee 'followed
-that of Dr., Bliss and other -phy
sicians who treated the late Presi
dent showink the nature - of the
wound and its necessary fatal result.
Theline of questioning and the
nature of the testimony introduced
on the part of the prosecution. goes
far to prove that the act of Geitean
was instigated by, menge. That it
was delibdately premeditated and
planned for the purpose of vengeance
for imaginary alight to him person
ally by the Presidedt. That it was
not the work of an insane irrespon—
sible man. So far as the evidence
yet intro duced
. goes the theory of
the prosecution is pretty well estab
lished. The defence will have to
produce strong contradictory testi
mony to establish a degree of insan
ity such as renders ,the assassin
irresponsible for his act.
The defiant attitude of the pris
oner daring trial is of the zaps(' offen
sive character, and has served to
intensify the bitter feeling against
him. One attempt has already been
made by an avenger to take the,
assassin's life by firing into the prison
van while be was being carried from
the Court house to' the jail, an ac
count of which is found • elsewhere.
Should the jury adjadge him insane,
it will require the closest watchful
ness and a strong guard to prevent
his miserable life being taken, before
be could reach an asylum.
The trial is one of the most re
markable in the annals of crime.
The detestation of the monster who
could calmly premeditate and execute
such a crime will be as lasting as
the history of its commission. The
oontemplatiOn of it causes a shudder
in the mind of every 'one - posessed:
of the common instincts of humanity.
The reliability - and force of Ameri
can institutions, the respect of the
people for the forms of law, is
tutted in the fact that such a mon
ster can be peacefully and fairly
tried in a court of justice and judged
by the law and the evidence.
The trial may be prolonged :for
several weeks yet. As our space
precludes our giving the testimony
in detail, we will give our readers
weekly notes of its progress until
Boss QUay's Premature Growth.
Pardon Boss Quay's 'sudden conver
sion to Grow, Caven and reform 'has
not caused anybody to faint that: we
have heard of. If Mr. Quay had in
good faith named Mr. Cavell for Gov
ernor there would have beep something
astounding in the suggestion, coming
from such a source, for Mr, Caven is
known Ss one of the original reformers
and an uncompromising , foe of - such
bosses as Quay and their Methods.
Besides, the Mephistopheles of the Ring
knew very well that! Mr. Caven, being
a t man who means business, would
under no, circumstances accept an office
where he 'could be only an ornamental
figure-head. . Quay therefore had a
inotiro in flanging Orow for tiro Clams -
natorial chair and Caven for the picture
on the executive wall. This motive is
broadly hinted at in an interview 6f the
Philadelphia Prela with Representative
McKee, of many of the incidents theein

chilled by the disposition manifested by
that gentleman to be more careful not
to hurt the feelings of Boss Cameron
than to follow the -- counsels of his
friends who were unselfishly working
for him. He was persistent in his de
itiarations that he had assurances that
the Cameron bosses would not oppose
his nomination. He went so far as to
insist that his friends in this county,
should not antagonize the followers of
the bosses; that no matter who was
elected to the Assembly they would
support him in good faith if instructed
for him. An this way Mr. Grow be
came responsible for the choice of
members who did not - represent the
sentiments of their constituents and
only nominally obeyed their instruc
We are not prepared to say with
Mr. McKee that-Xr. Grow "sold out
the Independents," or bargained - to
deliver them to the Oliver ring on the
promise that they would support, him
for Governor, but we,do know that he
did the very thinOuay, Cameron
& Co. wanted done in 'order to circum
yent the Independents. ' Without con
sulting the faithlul band of men who
had stood by him, and who would havo
continued to stand by him as long as
there was a chance of his nomination,
he went into conferenee with the Oliver
bosses and, without the, knowledge of
his friends, agreed that he and Oliver
should both decline in favor of Gen.
Beaver, who had been selected by the
bosses as their next choice. We were
present when Mr. Grow first announced'
or • rather admitted, the conclusion['
reached at the conference he had just
held,-and he seemed astonished that
anyone should doubt the wisdom or'
god faith of the course he hhd pur
sued, He regarded the election of;
Beaver as a', foregone conclusion and
advised those who did not want to get
drowned to come in out of the rain as
quickly as possible. But, aoubtless to
his surprise, it didn't rain much, and
no one in the camp_ he had deserted
got drowned either.
Whatever Mr. Grow'a motives were
in the extraordinary course he then
puraued, it was evident that he played
directly into the hands ~ef the • bosses
and came very near reeking the Inde- 1

pluck of the gallant "fifty-six," aid
their refusal to further follow the cho-'

Wimp:Gros, Nov. 19, 3:30 P. m.—
It is reported that Guitean was shot
at after leaving the couttroom, the b a ll
tasting effect in his hand.
STATEMENT OF TIM DBITEIt OF Am PSIS-*
The driver of the prison van gives
the .following particulars of the attempt
to shoot Guitenu - •
Upon the adjournment of the court
.the van started for the jail, haiing a
policeman as a guard sitting on the
seat. Before reaching . the Capitol the
guard noticed a man on horseback rid
ing behind. Near the corner of the
Capitol and First street the horseman
rode directly up to the rear of the van,
and hastily looked through the grating.
Guiteau was alone, seated on the right
hand side. After satisfying himself of
the location of the prisoner, the man
wheeled suddenly to the left of the van
and fired directly through it. He then
dashed in'front of the van and Pointed
his pistol at the driver,_ evidently with
the intention of intimidating hini or
stopping the van. The driver wits
'somewhat excited, and said to . the re
porter, " Perhape the man intended to
stop the van rby shooting one of the
horses." Seeing an armed policeman
by the side of the . driver, he exclaimed,
" I've 'shot the of a —1" and
putting spurs 'to his horse dashed down
the last street in the direction of the
Congmssional Cemetery. - The police
man fired a shot at the fast-disappear
ing horseman, and the driver whipped
his horses into a gallop; keeping him in
sight for several blocks.. The would-be
avenges war, however, mounted on a
blooded horse, and readily escaped into
the country. He was described as a
smooth-faced man, aged abOut twenty
five years, - and . of, a dashing manner.
He had .on a. dark brown suit.
The yan then proceeded to the jail,
and_Guiteau was taken out in a state
of excitement. He exclaimed, t' I have
been °shot ! Notify Major Brooks at
once. Tell to arrest the scoundrel
and have him dealt with as- he de
serves." On an examination it was
found that , the ball just grazed Guit
eau's wrist, inflicting a -scratch. When
he left the van he ran and fell upon the

on Guitesu's life created intense excite

rumors were circulated. - The avenger

afternoon, and. attempted. 4 to gain ad

and ride after the van. It is rumored,
too, - that. he hailed from Illinois, but
there is no fOundatfon for the report.

adjournmenti that to•day would be the
last day. 'of -the trial.- A remark was
also, heard that if anyone wanted to see
Guiteau they had better do so to-day,
This would lead to the supposition that
more than one person was aware of the
attempt that was to be, made to shoot
THE ALLEGED AVENGER CAUGHT.
The alarm was sent out, and the
mounted police scoured the country.
AU officer near the Soldier's Home saw
a man answering the description of the
avenger, and commanded him to halt.
He got a blast of profanity in reply, and
the man roduoff very last, a policeman
:following in hot pursuit. The chase
was continued beyond the. District line
and several shots were fired, the man
finally; disappearing in the woods, an
officer laid in wait, and he re-appeared
as he drove in the yard of a farmhouse
in which a Mr. Laid lives. •It Was
here 'that the assailant„ Wm. Jones by
name, was arrested and brought back
to the. city. He is very reticent and
the . officers will not disclose anything
regarding him. It is reported that
Jones is a " crank," and does not seem
to realize that he has done anything to
involve him in serious difficulty.
GUITEAV IN ABJECT PEAR.
Guiteau is in a condition of abject
fear, and his appearance is said to be tn
strong contrast , with that presented this
morning in court, He appeals pite
ously to be protected from further trio.
OREAT CROWD ON SUNDAY TO SEE
WAstuNoToN, Nov. 20.—There WAS
a great crowd of people around the jail
where Guiteau is confined throughout
the day. Occasionally a party wag al;
lowed to pasi through the jail, accom
panied by guards, and the Litter would
engage Guiteau in conversation about
the shooting yesterday. His invariable
reply was: "Oh, yes, I am hard to hit.
People will learn 'after a little that the
Lord is , with me and will not permit
me to be killed." He insists that he
must have 4 strong guard of police to
morrow to assist in keeping him from

This afternoon the crowd became so
large that the .guard Cold Guiteau that
he had 'better step to the corridor that

in the police court to-morrow.
The policeman who sat on the van
went to the jail this:: aftenooMforthe
plupose of identifying Jones, ::but ,
dared positive ly i,that tier was not the
man who fired.'into it: li e says Jones
has a light complexion and hardljc a
perceptible::moustache,p whereas the
man whci fired- at Guiteau was a dark
and swarthy mail, apparently forty•five
years old, with a beairy. and :Stumpy
black moustache and keen- - black eyes.
He was cool and sober in manner, and
planned his work, even thaw* -he
feed, in a way that showed that he
was - a clear-headed anelletermined
an, rather than that of s halfwitted
crank. Agan, the hone that be rode
was a heavy sorrel, with white fore
legs, while Jones' horse has not a white
spot upon it. Jones, therefore, will
doubtless be released in ; the morning.
One theory is that Jones I was an ac-
Compfice. The police, are much exer

DR. BLISS' STORY OF TICId INOICZNTS or
PRESIDENT dABITILLet3 LAM -ILLNESS.'
The - morning of the 3d ;rairrlnly found
Itim_comparatively - cheerful and hope
ful, and with a fall appreciation 'of hit
surroundings. After the' morning con
sultation, and the dressing of the wound,
fuming at. my request decided upon his
permanent professional attendance,- be
desired me to thank individually the
physicians!who came to hie assistance
so promptly. In the evening it wasde
cided to summon tI e , distinguished
counsel from\ Philad Iptiia and New
York, Dm' D.! Hayes, AgneWand Frank
H.. Hamilton. „The time which passed
until the • 23d of July when the first
rigor occurred, was .remarkable chiefly
for the quiet. °eel det4nrunation of the
sufferer. At this time, as hi known; a
simple but painful operation Was render
ed necessary by the formation of a
superficial pruesac. When, after con
sultation, I informed tke President of
the intention to use the knife, he, with
unfailing cheerfulness, replied: "Very
well; whatever you say is necessary
must be done." When the physicians
entered the room I handed the bistonry
to one of the conned with the request
that he make the incision. Without an
innestlietio and without a-murmur or a
muscular contraction by_ the patient,
the incision was made. He quietly
asked the results of the operation, and
soon sank into a peaceful slumber. 'This
operation, though simple in itself, was
painful, and the manner in which it was
borne by the President in his enfeebled
eondition visa, perhaps, as good an 'in
stance as any of the wonderful nervous
control which characterized his whole
illness. ! .
When the stomach failed, resort was
had to other modes of administering
food, which were repeated at proper in
tervals for four or five days. at several
periods of his illness. , We saw him slip
ping from our hands through inani
tion. We suspected and 'dreaded some
internal. injury, which nu mortal could
have dared to(explore., We sought/every
available means, of supplying I waste
known to' modernphysiological science.
Why we 'could not finally succeed, is
shown by the autopsy. Daring all, the'
President intelligently discussed each
condition. with me. He often spoke
with feeling wonder of the marvelous
ions wnien Bowline could and 'did give a
sufferer in his condition, saying on one
occasion, "What relief these so-called
artificial methods of nourishment have
given me ! We should he thankful that
science bus so advanced that we can
avail ourselves of it in this crisis."
About ten days after the first Bab
es riptiou was made to the fund for Mrs.
Garfield some one of the household in
formed him that a large .stun of money
was being raised for her in the event of
his demise. At this be was very much
_surprised, and said: "What !" adding,
with evident emotion, as heturned his
face to the , pillow, , "How kind and
thoughtful !! What a generous people!"
Etc Was then silent and absorbed for
some time; as if overwhelmed with the
thought.- I never, heard him allude to
the snbjent afterward. '
The fatigues of the trip (to 'Elberon)
were shown , in the.pulse and also in the
facial expression; I but the President ex-'
pressed himself as glad to be at the sea
shore, and was inclined to think that he
'ought to have been removed before.—
)14 satisfaction was evident to all. The
stand of the waves, the salt and bracing/
allaffordedlom the greatest delight.
,For eight or ten 'days his condition vis
iblY and continuously improver'. Upon
the evening of the 15th of September a
noticeable change took place—a more
frequent pulse, higher teraperature and
increasing feebleness, all indicated deep
seated mischief, which his physicians
could not localize, but could only re
cognize symptomatically _as due to the
general septic condition.
On this day I ;was absent from him
for five hotria.; the only oceaision
on which I .left ' him dar
ing , the Agit.) , :lays. . I left 'him
comfortable, and on returning: from
New Yorklound him only presenting
the signs of fatigue usual at that horn.
(5 P. M.). Upon my return he held
out his hand, and attempted the familiar
smile. I said: , •
'_Mr. President, I have been .!away
for slew hours, as you know, but 'they
seemed like an age." . '
He answered; -
"Doctor, you plainly she.* the effect
of all this care and unrest,' and I ain
glad you were forced to take this tem
porary relief. Your anxious watching
will soon be over."
I think that then, - and probe* long
before, the President fully believed
that he could not survive. . .
Upon the day before his death be
addressed Colonel Rockwell as follows:
"Old boy, do you think my name
will have a place in human history?"
The Colonel answered: ! •
"Yes, a grand one, but• a grander
place in 4aman beads. Old fellow you
maul talk in that. way. • You h iva a
great work yet to perform." •
After a momenta sileuee he -said,
sadly and solemnly: •
"No: my work is done."
Often during his sicknesi, in his great
care forrest after the fatigues of theday,
be gently urged Mrs. Garfield to retire
from the bedside, even when she herself
could scarcely bear to leave. , His heist
was not only L great, bat tender as that.
