Entered at the Pottoflice at Butler as
tecondrclasss matter.
Wolf*, for State Treasurer, received
new 50,000 rotes, the official count
making it 49,984.
Coubt special term—commences
on Monday, November 28, and regular,
December term, on Monday following,
December 5.
Govzbnok Long, of Massachusetts,
strikes out in a new way in making
his Thanksgiving proclamation. After
quoting Holy Writ, etc., he dashes off
four stanzas of poetry on the subject.
It gives us gratification to state that
the litigation that was pending in this
and Mercer county, between the edi
tors of the papers here, was satisfacto
rily adjusted on the 16th inst., all suits
having been discontinued by the par
ties interested.
In some respects the trial of Gui
teau, so far, is the most remarkable on
record. His audacity to Court and
counsel, and constant impertinence to
and interruption of both, with his
astoanding self-conceit, surpasses any
thing, we think, ever heard of before.
And much of it looks like an assumed
and overdone business on his part. He
will hang himself if they only give
him time.
Skvxbal leading Republicans, from
different parts of the State, had a meet
ing in Philadelphia last week, to con
sult on the danger threatening the par
ty through the cdiO-is boss rule goiDg
on, Committees were appointed with
the r'ew of b inging the matter to the
notice of the people. The chairman of
the Wolfe State committee has also is
sued an address to the Republicans of
the State on the subject. These, and
many other men and elements in the
party, will doubtless soon co-operate to
accomplish the one great object aimed at
by all who are sick and tired of boss
dictation in the party.
MB. SCOVILLE, one of the counsel,
and a brother-in-law of assassin Gui
teau, is making every effort possible to
sare the neck of hiß relative through
the defence of insanity. But he made
one application to the Court last week
that would have quite reversed the
rules of evidence had it been granted.
He asked that the Court require the
prosecution to produce evidence show
ing the tanily of the prisoner, forget
ting that he was presumed sane until
proven the contrary by the defence
This singular position taken by Scoville
would rather confirm the remark made
bj Guiteau of him, that "he was not
much of a criminal lawyer."
The following is the official vote in
in the State on State Trearurer :
Baily, Rep., ... 265,295
Noble, Dem., - * 258,471
Wolfe, Ind., - - - 49,984

The whole vote is about 250,000
less than last year.

All the signs point clearly that there
must be an end to what is known as
"boss rule" in this State. The large
vote Mr. Wolfe received tor State
Treasurer at the late election is only
an indication of what is coming, unless
the Republican masses are allowed a
voice in making nominations. For
years past a ticket has been fixed up by
a few men. Candidates, from Gover
nor down, have been slated, for State
offices, and brought out, not by their
people at home, but by a little ring at
Harrisburg. The Republicans at their
homes may have known nothing about
it until they heard it from abroad, that
such and such men were on the slate,
as they term it, for such and such nom
inations. Had the matter been left to
their constituents probably they would
never have thought of them, or
perhaps not endorsed them as fit for
the places the machine had selected
them for. To end this matter was the
meaning of the vote for Wolfe. Thou
sands of Republicans did not vote for
him who really sympathized with him.
Had be been nominated by any re
spectable body of Republicans his vote
would probably have been five times
larger than it is. But it is a protest
against boss rule that it will be strange
if not heeded. His friends, since the
•lection, have advised a new and sepa
rate organization of the party. Other
influential Republicans in the State ad
vise that another effort be made with
the people to oust the bosses. This
can be done if the Bepublican people,
the masses, take hold of the matter.
All that is necessary is for the Repub
licans generally to understand the issue
and we have faith they will give the
"MY God! What is This?" Such
was the exclamation of President Gar
field when the assassin's bullet struck
him. The words are brought out for
the first time by Secretary Blaine in
bis evidence on the Guiteau trial last
week. _ _
On Saturday afternoon last, after ad
journment of the Court trying the case,
and a3 Guiteau was being conveyed
back to jail, a man on horseback fol
lowed the conveyance, and riding up
close, fired two pistol shots into it and
at Guiteau. One of them only struck
him, and that but slightly, on his left
arm, near the elbow, making a small
abrasion. An exciting chase followed
for the capture of the person shooting,
and a man named William Jones was
finally arrested, out from the city of
Washington some miles, but at this
writing he has not been identified as
the person doing the shooting. We
have, iu another place, given our view
of this attempt to interfere with the
due course of the law. It cannot be
justified, no matter how monstrous the
act of the prisoner may have been.
It is absolutely recessary that the
law be upheld at all times. I'or by it
only all are protected. If the law is
overridden in one case it nmy l>e in
another, and then no man would know
if he were safe or not. Under strong
indignation, such as exists in this Na=
tion at present against the slayer of a
beloved President, we are apt to for
get the importance of holding aloft the
law. It is a natural impulse in the
human breast to take the law into our
own hands on occasions of great out
rage and wrong. If this is done on
sudden impulse, or at the immediate
time a great crime may have been com
mitted, it is frequently overlooked, and
the ayenger is rather considered a hero
than a law breaker. To illustrate ; if
Guit< au had been torn to pieces at the
time and by the persons who saw him
shoot the President, public opinion
would not have condemned them. This
feeling arises from the fact,
opinion is the basis upon which all
law rests, and through it all law was
originally made, or ought to have been
made. That is, the good or welfare of
the great public is the foundation o f
all law. On great emergencies, there
fore, it is frequently taken by the peo
ple into their own hands and summary
punishment inflicted. But where a
person is undergoing a trial in a Court
of Justice nothing can justify any pub
lic or private interference with the law.
We regretted, therefore, to hear of the
attempt on Ouiteau's life, last Satur
day. The attempt has a bad effect on
public morals, and will lessen the re
spect of that class for the law that
most require its restraining influence
The person who sought to kill Ouiteuu 1
doubtless done so under the common
impression that he will be declared in
sane and thus escape the death penalty.
But we do not think so. No jury on
earth should so find. But should the
jury trying bim sofind t it will be through
the law made for every man and for all.
And in that case he will be confined
for life. We say] for lite. For who
does suppose that he ever dare walk
out or among the people of these Unit
ed States. Every man's baud would
be upon him as upon that of a wild
beast. It is, therefore, the true inter
est of all to stand by the law and up
hold it on ali occasions. Only by so
doing is there safety to all, and only
by so doing are the public morals and
the good name and fame of our people
and government preserved.
Mr. Ziegler, of the llernld of this
place, furnishes the following recol
lections of the life and character of the
late Mr. Dougal. We take them from
the Herald of last week, and as Mr.
Ziegler was kind enough to publish
the article in the CITIZEN of the week
before, on the death of Mr. Dougal, we
would liked to have given the whole
of his article. But want of space pre
vents. We omit some parts relative to
to the parentage, Indian life and re
ligious views of Mr. Dougal. The
balance, as follows, will l>o found
very interesting.
[From the Herald of Nov. lf>, 1881.J
We agree with Mr. Negley that Mr
Dougal was 108 years old, but we do
not agree as to the day of his birth.
More than twenty years ago when lie
was in the fullest exercise of his facul
ties, he told us that he was born on
the 21st day of September, 1778, and
this would make him 103 years old on
the 21st day af September last. Our
recollect'on is correct in this matter
from a remark he made at the time.
We were born on the 19th day of
September and so told Mr. Dougal.
He then said, "I was born on the 21st
of September, and as you, Mr. Ziegler,
was born on one side of the equinoctial
line and I on the other, we ought both
to be philosophers." This remark im
pressed on our memory the day and
year of his birth.—He was born near
the "Burnt Cabins" or near to where
the town of Fannetsburg now is in the
county of Franklin. We believe the
place is kuown as "Path Valley." His
father was a Presbyterian preacher
and assisted in establishing that Church
in that section. Some years ago we
read an article giving the history of
the Presbyterian Church in Perry
county, and in that article we saw th<;
name of Kev. Dougal as one of the
pioneers who had crossed the mountain
to make a foothold for Presbvteriuoism
in that county. He was accompanied
by another pastor of the church in this
work, and their efforts in the direction
of their mission was at the small cabin
of ( a settler who had penetrated that
then wilderness to hew out for himself
a home. As Mr. Dougal h.id frequent
ly told us his father was a Presbyterian
preacher, and that he lived in "Path
Valley," we concluded it was the same
person who bad crossed the mountain
Citiauen: 23» 1881.
into what is now Perry county on the !
Church's mission. To make sure of
this we mentioned the fact to him and
he said at once, "that was my father.
We have had many conversations i
with him in regard to his early life,
and these were bad at a time when he
was in full vigor and when his recol
lection was as bright as it ever was.
In one of these conversations he told
us that wten he left home, then quite
a vouug man. he was engaged for some
time as clerk in the Prothonotary s of
fice of Huntingdon county, and that he
then acquired a knowledge of survey
ing. After he left Huntingdon, he
j came to Pittsburgh and went into the
1 '-dark and bloody ground"' of Ken
j tuckv. In this wilderness he acquired
a taste for border lite and in some re
spects for the customs and habits of
the Indian. He was a splendidly
formed man, and had dark penetrating
eyes, which, when excited, flashed
from an inward tire that, had he con
tinued in border life, would have made
him a dangerous man to encounter in
the wilderness, or in any hand to hand ;
contest for supremacy. Cf Scotch de-'
scent he had that capacity for endur
ance as well as determination of pur
pose fo? which his race is so justly
celebrated, and hence we often thought
that a wild life was really his natural
inclination, for these characteristics
pertain alone to such men to whatever
race they belong. In our conversations
with him about the' Red man," he
would expatiate largely upon their
wrongs, and as he said, their just
jLrrievances. As to their massacres of
the whites, he said, they were the re
sult of gross injuries inflicted upon
them by unprincipled whites, aud act
ing upon the natural law of retaliation
their n;assacres were necessarily indis
criminate. He always belipyctj that
by the exercise of a proper policy the
Indian could have been brought within
the pale of civilization and made an
intregal part of the government, but
owing to the lawless disposition of
borf}erpr s incited to acts of cruelty to
ward them bjr $ frlaes of pjen whose
sole object was to prey upou the gov :
eminent, the ludian was driven to a
state of desperation which defied the
laws of both God and man. W bile
dilating upon this subject his whole ap
pearance would undergo a charge. His
eyes would (lash with lire, hij Jips
quiver, his face Hush with anger aud
his frame shake so that au ordioary
listener would suppose something
more than the mere advocacy of the
rights of the ludian was then actuating
him. When the WftS changed
i he would at once relapse back iuto nis
usual quiet aud talk in an exceeding
interesting and rational manner, for,
' be it paid, he was unquestionably a
r well informed f)iq.n, whose memory
was never at fault, ai.d exten
sive reading gave him a thorough
knowledge of almost every subject.
While on this part of the deceased's
Jife, we adduce in justification of what
; we ha»e said, his mode of li(e ever
since he came to Butiei. JJe
ly took delight in living in a small
room surrounded by rubbish of all
kinds, with a few broken chairs and a
' bod that defied all civilization ; aud in
i the mitUt of au odor that bad »ot its
. like outside of the rude tent of the
untutored savage. In other words, he
despircd all modern fashion whether it
it pertained to eating, sleeping, cloth
ing or comfort This was not the re
i suit of acquired habit. We always be
. lieved aud believe yet, it wu* the re.-
sult of au inward delight for the free
and unrestrained life of the ludian.
Another proof of what we have said
being true, are the old bouses erected
on liis property in this place. He con
sidered them amply hufiicicnt far any
one to live in who was not, as he used
to say, "beset with sin and stinking
wi'h pride.'' However, these houses
are really characterise of his inborn
nature. Horn and reared himself in a
log cabin he disdained to train in the
march of advancing civilization >«o far
as the comforts of a homo were con
cerned, and we know from his own
mouth, that he preferred, when going
to the country surveying or on other
business, to be the guest of those who
lived in log cabins and fed on IhHUt-.
milk, potatoes and mush. Jlence, he
never engaged in improvement of any
kind, excepting to purchase fruit trees
and put them on his farm, for ho was
a great lover of fruit. From 3*ear to
3'car he would patch and patch his old
houses, but never tore any of them
down to erect a better iu their stead ;
and to his credit be it said, he uever
distressed any one for rent. If renters
had the means to pay well and good ;
if they had not he always permitted
them either to remain or move away
as they considered it best. lie fre
quently told us, that he never jssued
a landlord's warrant in his life, nor
turned a tenant out on the street.—
When we were firtt married and about
to start in life, he told usto take posses
sion of that little hou.se iu which
Esquire \Valk> r now dispenses justice
as a Justice of the Peace We accept
ed the offer, for we were too poor to
pay rei.t for a larger and more com
modious dwelling; and just where
'Squire Walker's table now stands, was
where our first child, a beloved daugh
ter, now dead for a number of years,
was boru. In this bouse wc lived for
a number of years and then be gave
us possession of the house across the
street where C. ilarlej has now hie
shoe shop. lie never asked us tor one
cent of reut, except on one occasion
when he came to us and said, "Jacob,
give me $5.00, for I want to prevent
the constable from reappearing at my
door I bailed a man and he can't
pay." Of course in time we paid liiifl
all, liut we mention these circumstan
ces to show that in his nature was em
bedded a feeling of charity for others.
By a treaty with the Indians the
State acquired all the land lying north
and west" of the Allegheny river and
Conewango creek. This wu* a pur
chase from the 'Six Nations,' a© the
tribes which roamed over this section
were knowu. Ilutier county is a part
of this territory, and by an act of As
sembly passed iu 1800 it was for.ucd.
About this time, as Mr. Negley, in the
article which we have copied from his
paper, has stated, .Mr. I»ougal came to
this place. I! 1' purchased at the sale
of lots the two lots »»iiicji extend on
both sides of Main street from the dia
mond to n baj are now known as the
Etzel and Vogcley alleys. This prop
erly he held to the day of his death.
In the store room now occupied by Mr.
Pringle, he engaged in nuTchand sing,
but as this was a business for which
le was not particulaily adapted, he
lid not long continue the business,
lie took delight in surveying, for 11;i
--gave him the opportunity of roaming
through the woods and associating
with the settlers whose rough ways of j
living suited him better. He, in this
wav. became the agent of the Stephen
Lowrv lauds, which afterwards de
scended to Mrs. Collins the daughter
and only child of Mr. Lowrv. He con
tinued as agent for Mrs. Collins during
her life time, and for her children after
her, among whom we respectfully men
tion Mrs. MeClure, the widow of
Judge MeClure, of Pittsburgh, now de
ceased, and Mrs. McCandless, wife of
Hon. Wilson McCandless, formerly
Judge of the United States Court for
the Western District of the State, two
most estimable ladies. After the chil
dren of Mrs. Collins came into the
possession of the property, he continu
ed their agent, advisor and counsellor,
np until his feeble condition compelled
him to seek a home with the Protzman
family on hlg farm some three miles
east of Butler. and where he died as
has been stated.
Tbe deceased, as we said, was fond
of reading and acquiring knowledge on
all subjects, but especially was fond of
astronomy. Ho read all vvorfcs he
could get treating of that science, ile
was familiar with all the planets and
could tell their locati >n at any season
of the year. Hut the North Star seem
ed to puzzle him, because in whatever
l.osition the earth was the star seemed
to be in the same place. Years ago
he used to worry over it a great deal,
and even went so far as to construct a
rude piece of machinery to show why
it was the appearance ot the star was
always the same viewed from the earth.
A large comet in the W'ost,
we cannot now recollect how long ago
it was, but it was a beatiful one, large
and well defined Sitting at his office
door one evening smoking his pipe
slightly intoxicated, we came along
aud he insisted that we should take a
cuau and ponvers? v/itfi hju) about as
tronomy. We confess to a eompartive
ignorance of that science not only at
that day but even now. We took a
seat and he commenced to explaiu the
planets, their size, motions, «fcc. lie
said that Saturn must be a splendid
pjape to lifp if} oq Recount of the num
ber of moons which atteuded and tuo
rings which encircled that planet, and
that if the people on this earth, when
they died, were transferred to other
planets be hoped that his place of resi
dence mifht be in Saturn. While we
were talking a man n*»med Caifipbel!,
from near WhiUrstown, came along unci
said to him iu a rather abrupt manner,
'Dougal what do the people mean by a
comet? I hear them all talking about
it.' Mr. Dougal rose slowly from his
vbair Campbell by the coat
sieve, led him to the corner of the
house aud pointed out the comet to
him. 'There,' said he 'is the comet.'
'What,' saif' Campbell, 'that thing with
a long tail to it V Yes,' said Mr I)ou
gai, 'and Row,' hp continued, 'will you
please to tell me where such a d d
fool as you were born V A few miu
utes afterwards another person came
along somewhat under the iulluence of
liquor, and said, 'what great nonsense
ii is for i>o;»}e people to talk about the
sun not moving ; don't we see it mov
ing everv day and don't the earth
standstill?' Mr. Dougal knocked the
ashes from his pipe and looked up in
ytter s:;tqnisbmeut for a minute or so,
and then witb tue utmost Goiiponipp
for the person, pointed his longer finger
to tbe star, .Jupiter, which wassnining
most brilliantly, and is about four hun
dred millions of miles away in space,
and said, 'friend, I shouldn't wander
if it waa tweulu-Jii'p mile* up to that
star!' After those persons had goue
away, he turned to us and said, 'Jacob,
the ignorance of the common j>eople is
lamentable, but I guess it is better for
them to be so, for if they were wiser
voql4 tfyeir wisdom into
worse folly.' We mention these cir
cumstances to show that he was a
man of more than ordinary intelligence
and was quick wit ted.
For many years Mr. Dougal endeav
ored tQ solye the problem of 'perpetu
al motion.' In his levari; ipoffleqts fee
would whittle sticks and fashion them
according to his liking and then with
pieces of tin put them together He
never explained what he was djing
other than to express his belief that
sotjitf day or other the world would be
astonished by machinery operated hy
'perpetual motion.' However, be at
last gave it up and said, that 'God
alono in His operation* of the uni
verse was perpetual motion, and until
man became equal to God, which he
uever could do, it was folly for him to
do what God alone could do.' This he
said to lis, and it led the conversation
gradually into the question of a futqre
state.—He believed man would live
forever, either in the state of bliss or a
i-tate of misery. In a subsequent con
versation we had with him, he aked us
jf we belipved it was possible for the
•.pirit of a docoased person to visit this
earth and appear to the sight of any
! one living. We told him that was a
1 hard question to answer and we were
' unable for its solution. lie then said,
I 'well,' I believe it is possible, for twice
I in my life the spirit of my father ap
i peared to me, and once, just there
| where that bed stands, I saw him as
plain a* 1 ever saw !)iifl in luy life,
j He bent over m«, looked down in my
! face for a minute or mere, and then
j disappeared through that back door.'
j We said to him, 'probably it was only
; a dream which had left au impression
'on bis mind akin to reality.' lie said
firmly, 'no &ir, 1 was wide awake and
! when he disappeared I put my lu-'ud
I under the cover.' We could only re
-1 ply that it was very singular. After
a long pause he said, 'what do we
know of the power of God? 'Daddy'
was a good man and served His Mas
ter faitbfullv, and why might not God
permit him to visit an erring child herp
on earth ? Are not the good the miq
istering spirits of God He said this
with great feeling and immediately
turned the conversation to some other

J WASHINGTON, November 1(3. —The back en- i
; trance to the Criminal Court room was opened
| about half past eleven o'clock this morning,
and almost immediately about fifty ladies were
ushered in by the Deputy Marshals and given
seats on chairs immediately in the rear of the
counsel. A few miuutes before ten o'clock the
jurors who had been accepted entered the room
and took seats. Before 10 o'clock the court
room was filled to overflowing, the audience be
a very respectable one.
The Court called for order, and during the
calling of the names of the jurors the prisoner 1
. was brought in. His appearance was wild aud .
excited. He tossed his hat upon the desk be- j
1 fore hiui, and, tqruing toward brother-.tn-law ;
, I Scoville, hurriedly whispered something to him j
in an extremely excited manner. The two en
tered into conversation, and Guiteau, while
speaking, used Jhis clenched tist vigorously, as
if insisting on a matter which Scoville seemed
to disapprove.
The talesmau being called, Judge Cox ques
' tioned the first talesman, E. 1.. Kengia, up
, on his feelings regarding the prisoner. Ken
t gia responded that ne did not think there could
possibly be sufficient evidence Jto change the
opinion he had formed. The next talesman
i called was excused almost at once, having form
ed a decided opiuion. A laborer named Thom
as declared he had neither expressed qor fqru}-
1 ed an opinion ; canuot read and never held any
> conversation whatever on the subject. Mr. Sco
> ville remarked this man was about the kind of
" a juror the law contemplated, but the defense
; did not waut him. He therefore challenged
! him peremptorily. A colored barDer named
r Williams was called, and having formed no
' opinion was examined by Scoville. He read
1 the papers every morning before seven o'clock,
- and being a barber, of course hqd oonytrsgi} j\
j groat dbul ou the tuhjnoi. In response iu the
t inquiry whether he had ever been a juror in a
murlei-case, he said he had, but the jury had
1 disagreed. This remark caused considerable
3 amusement throughout the room. After fur»
ther questioning Mr. Williams was excused.
" Win. H. Browner, commission merchant, being
I closely questioned by Scoville and no objection
. being advanced by the Government, was *c
oepted ami duly swuru, iMiikiuj fhe tenth JU'
■j ror. Geo. T. Koene, in response to mterroga-
I tion, said there was nothing under the sun
1 which could change the opinion he had formed
and several other gentlemen were as decided in
their answers as was Keene.
Daring the examination of the talesmen the
following statement was |>n,|uue<i b/ t>uii(<au,
uopied bv his brother ana given to the press :
To the legal nnofession of America: I anion
trial for my life. I formerly practiced law in
New \ork and Chicago, and propose to take an
active part in my defense, as I know more

T. Ileinlein, iron worker, was sworn as the
eleventh juror. Tlios. H. Barron, carpenter
and builder, answered the preliminary question
in a satisfactory manner, and was then more
closelv examined by Mr. Scoville. He had

had once been an Odd Fellow, but he dropped
that order because it was the duty of all good
citiz;ns to help everybody. Being asked wheth
er he believed in a hereafter, he said that the
present implied hereafter, and he believed eve
ry violation ot law, whether natural or spiritu
al, v'VJ t)e pijnisljsd. Being fjskpd
he had ever employed any of the lawyers for the
prosecution, he said the only lawyer he had
ever employed was Mr. Davidge, and his expe
rience with the law then was such that he had
never sued a man since. Being asked whether
his wife was living, he said "Yes, what is left
of her; not much." The dry and caustic humor
with which this man replied tq t»llquestionskf:
forded much amusement. Scoville at last made
up his mind to accept Barron as a juror, but the
District Attorney preferred to excuse bim and
interposed a peremptory challenge.
There were thirty-two men examined l>etween
the tenth and eleventh jurors. There had been
tar, PEREMPTORY OP, tlje j;qrt of the
defense. The next talesman examined was C.
A. Puvne, a bout and shoe manufacturer, who
proved acceptable to the defense, but was per
emptorily challenged by the Government. Jo
seph Prather, a commission merchant was ac
cepted and sworn as the twelfth juror.
One of the talesman, on examination, said his
opinion of the case had been materially chang
ed by bulletins of intending surgeons which had
appeared daily in windows of hqsinesg
houses throughout the city. The District At
torney questioned the talesman on this point
and after reiterating the cause of his changed
opinion, he was peremptorily challenged by the
Govern merit. After the talesman explained
the cause of his changed opinion, Guiteau whis
pered to a newspaper correspondent, '"Put that
in." The prisouer seemed much gratified with
the statement, as it tended to establish the idea
of malpractice.
The court took a recess for half an hour, and
upon reawnbling District Attorney f'orkhill
asked the Court that the oath be administered
to the jury as a w hole. This being done, the
District Attorney moved the court adjourn, in
order to give the jurors oyportunity to attend
to their respective business matters.
At this point Mr. Scoville rose to make a per
sonal explanation regarding the paper which
WAS obtained from the prisoner this inoj-niug.
lie said he did not approve the document and
wished this distinctly understood. At the con.
elusion of his remarks the prisoner arose, and
in an excited manner insisted lie hail not yet
accepted the services of counsel, and declared
that until h<» did so he would defend himself.
The court then adjourned.
WASHINGTON, NOV. 17. —The court room
was tilled by 8:30, there being a noticable in
prease in the number of ladies present. Imme
diately lifter the court opened M r - Spoyille
made a personal explanation. 110 said theru
was no disagreement between himself and Mr.
Robinson, and that the latter was rendering all
the assistance possible. At this point Guiteau
arose and objected to Kobinson's taking part in
his defense. He would manage his own case,
and wouldent trust Robinson, as the latter had
no brains. He wished the court to understand
thjs, and if counsel were forced upon him he
would make a noise about it to the country.
He represents the Deity in this case, and want
ed the court to understand it. He said two or
three blundering lawyers would lose the case
for him, and lie would not submit to it. The
court informed him that if he did not remain
quiet he would be removed from the room.
After a few minutes the prisoner burst out
afresh, and then conversed in a very excited
manner vvjtji his counsel, striking the (Jesk
with his (lUiuched f}st. .\t Sectary
Blaine entered the room, aud took a seat be
hind the Government counsel. A few minutes
later District Attorney Corkhill began his
opening address.
Duing the first part of Mr. Corkhill's argu
ment the prisoner wore an air of indifereuce,
' and looked over the morning papers. The
| speech was delivered in an impressive manner,
I and when, towards its close, tears were falling
j from tlje pyes pf many, Uijiteau laid his paper
j aside, loaned back in (lis pbgir and uoyeretj his
! eyes with hi* hands, evidently trying to con
| eeal his emotion. He then oorniuenoed writ'
I ing hurriedly. He constantly shook his head
I in approval or disapproval of Mr. Corkhill's
I argument. Onetime he interrupted the speech,
; but Judge Cox promptly announced that it
was within the power of the court to try the
! case in the absence of the prisoner, and if he
i persisted in his turbulent remarks he would be
| removed. Guiteau said in reply, 'I will not do
j it again, your honor, hut I have very deep
feelings in this ease.' [Laughter.}
Mrs. Scoville, the prisoner's sister, cried bit
| terly during the opening speech, an«| her little
' girl", an interesting child of five years, could be
seen appealing to her in 1111 affectionate man
; iier, and inquiring, 'Maini, ipama. what is the
matter?' Long applause greeted the terirjini
tion of the speeefc.
Secretary Maine was then oalled to the wit
ness stand. He testified that ou he morning
1 of the shooting he accompanied the late Presi
| dent to the depot. He heard a pistol shot,
followed almost immediately bv another.
Thinking there was some trouble, ne touched
the President to urge him to go faster, but at
that moment the latter threw up his amis, ex
claiming. "My God. what is this?" The Sec
retary further testified to subsequent events.
Mr. Blaine, in cross-eiamination, detailed
the shooting and pointed out the location on
the diagram, and when he left the stand the
court took half an hour's recess. At this point
Guiteau remonstrated with Mr. Seoville, saying
the latter must comply with his wishes; if not,
there would lie a big row. Mr. Scoville paid
no attention to his client, and the latter was
with much difficulty removed by the bailiff.
