A Strange Story.
Washington, D. C, September 28.
It is reported that a plot to assassinate
President Arthur has' been discovered,
but so far the report lacks confirmation.
The rumor that a plot to assassinate
President Arthur had been discovered
arose from a sworn statement filed in
the police department by a man named
Bay ley, an attache of the army, medical
museum of the surgeon general's depart
ment, to the effect that while lying in
bed at his room in house No. 461 Mis
souri avenue on Monday uight.he heard
two men.standlng In front of the house,
plot the assassination of President Ar
thur. One asked the other if he would
swear to do it, and the other answered
that he would kill him within a month.
Mr. Bayley says he saw the men as they
walked oft" and can fully recognize them.
No arrests have been made.
A Stormy Wedding.
The Loves and Stills, conspicu
ous in the IndianTerritory, have long
been divided by a deadly feud. Lately a
Love and a Still became matrimonially
engaged, and it was agreed on all hands
that the wedding should be the occasion
of making a lasting peace. The gather
ing was large, and at first, greatly given
to smiles, kindly words, and hand-shaking
; but It was soon observed that near
ly every male guest carried a pistol, and
before night weapons came into general
use. Two men were killed and several
Tho Now President,.
f 1 V
Chester A. Arthur, who now be
comes President of the United States,
was born In Fairfield, Franklin county,
Vermont, October 5, 1830. He was par
tially educated by his father but pre
pared for entering college In the public
schools of Schenectady. He graduated
from Union College In 1848 and immedi
ately began the Btudy of law, and was
admitted to the bar of New York city
in 1832. Like his lameuled predecessor,
General Arthur was poorly off In this
world's goods, and paid his expenses by
teaching. Soon after being called to the
bar he married Miss Herndon, daughter
of Commander Herndon, who went
down in the Ill-fated Central America
in 183". Mrs. Arthur died in 1879, leav
ing two children, a boy of 14 and a girl
of 8. General Arthur's record as an at
torney is quite creditable. During the
war he was Quartermaster General of
the State of New York. He was ap
pointed Collector of the Port of New
York In 1871 by President Grant and
removed by President Hayes In 1878 for
refusing to observe the civil service reg
ulations adopted by Mr. Hayes.
The Crowd at Cleveland.
A Cleveland special to the Evenhu
Post estimates the number of visitors in
the recent obsequies as follows : There
were 50,000 visitors on Saturday and
100,000 on Monday, while of the local
population of 160,000 more than 100,
000 were In the streets. The proposed
guarding of the vault with a detail of
militia for some time will avoid all pos
sible danger of the body being stolen
until the casket is finally placed in the
ground. An iron cage is being construct
ed for the reception of the casket. The
cage will rest on a cemented stone foun
dation, surrounded by heavy masonry,
which will be part of the foundation for
the monument. The fund for the mon
ument is growing rapidly, and subscrip
tions are solicited of one dollar or less,
which will be registered.
Gulteau'8 Lawyers.
Washington September 20. District
Attorney Corkhill to-day called at the
jail, and being admitted to Guiteau's
cell informed him that the grand jury
would be in session next week and that
his case would then be called up, and
that an indictment would probably fol
low. Colonel Corkhill offered to tele
graph to any counsel Gulteau might
desire, intimating that it was the lnten
tention to give him an early trial. The
oiler was accepted, and later in the day
Colonel Corkhill sent a telegram for the
prisoner to Guiteau's brother-in-law,
George M. Scoville.of Chicago, la which
he requested that gentleman to come
here and defend his case. Gulteau also
requested Scoville to obtain the assist
ance of some able lawyer, and suggested
the name of Emory Storrs, of Chicago,
as such person.
New Jersey wants Gulteau.
Redbank, N. J., September 27. The
legal authorities of Monmouth county
have advised the attorney General of
the state and the attorney general of the
United States upon the propriety of
filing accounts before the grand jury of
Monmouth county, at its meeting next
Tuesday against Guiteau for the murder
of President Garfield. It is held that
the waiver of the coroner's inquest by
the State does not deprive the grand
Jury of this county of its power to indict
and try the criminal; also that the crim
inal law of New Jersey does not disqual
ify a citizen from serving on a Jury sim
ply because be has expressed an opinion
on the case to be tried. If Attorney
General Stockton, of New Jersey, and
Attorney General MacVengh consider
that the trial can be held here the pris
oner will be brought to New Jersey.
The county prosecutor, John Lanuing,
has decided to file before the grand jury
an indictment against Guiteau simply
as a precautionary measure so that if the
Washington authorities deem it best to
have a trial in New Jersey there shall
be no gap left for the escape of Gulteau
by the legal quibbles under the law of
the District of Columbia.
Effigies of Gulteau Burned.
New York, September 20. A num
ber of efligie3 of Gulteau were hung in
different parts of the city to-night and
attracted great crowds of people, who
pelted them with sticks and stones and
hooted and hissed. The police removed
some of them, while others were reinov
by the crowd.
Getting a Notoriety.
Owing to the publication of au ob
Jectlonable nrllcle relating to President
Garfield in the New Brunswick 2'lmen
of Wednesday the 21st ult.,a bitter feeling
was engendered, which Increased as the
article became known. Theuext night
a large crowd collected around the house
of the editor at two different times, but
the police succeeded in keeping order.
On Friday a large number of citizens as
sembled, and in the midst of an exol te
nient burned the editor in efilgy.
Cream that Will Hang.
Dr. Cream and Mrs. Stott were In love
at Belvldere, 111., and they concocted a
peculiar plan for safely murdering the
woman's husband. Stott being ill, the
Doctor was called In to attend him. A
prescription containing a safe amount of
strychnine was sent to a druggist, and
when the medicine came a large quanti
ty of the poison was added. It was cal
culated that Stott 's death would at once
be traced to the strychnine, aud that its
presence in a fatal proportion would be
Hscrlbed to a blunder by the druggists.
The murderers would probably never
have been detected if the woman had
not distrusted her partner. When she
heard that he had himself announced
that death was the result of poisoning,
she mistakenly inferred that he meant
to tlx the crime upon her, and Bhe has
tened to make a statement inculpating
him. His trial has just ended in con
viction, and she will get otT with a
lighter punishment, because she became
a witness for the prosecution.
A Clever Detective.
A Chicago police captain arrested a
wife murderer, but could not find the
remains of the woman, and the case
seemed likely to fall through. Knowing
that the prisoner would be speedily dis
charged unless some proof was forth
coming, the Captain entered the cell
with a paper in his hand, and said:
Your wife isn't dead, after all. She was
found alive where you left her, and
taken to the hospital. This is her sworn
statement of what you did to her. She
wants to see ycu. The murderer was
completely deceived. On the way to the
hospital, as he supposed, he was Induced
to tell where be shot his wife, and there
the body was found.
Tons of Human Bones.
An unpleasant sensation has been
caused in Bristol, England, by the dis
covery that a cargo of 300 tons of human
bones had been landed there to the order
of a local firm of mauure manufacturers.
The bones were shipped at Bodosto and
Constantinople, and are the remains
principally of the defenders of Plevna.
Hair still adheres to some of the skulls.
Sensible People.
A new fashion was set by the Duke of
Argyll at his late wedding. After the
festivities the guests took their departure,
leaving the bride and groom in the house,
where they remained during the honey
moon, literally spending the happy pe
riod at home.

the signs of mourning are generally and
spontaneous, and all agree that there was
never such a general wearing of mourning
for a foreigner. Even many of the carters
and drnymen have their whips deoorated
with crape, and in what are usually the
busiest thoroughfares, such as the Strand,
Fleet street and Cheapside, many of the
shops and all the daily newspaper ofiloes

mourning manifestations come from every
part of the kingdom, and even from the
remote towns of Ireland and Scotland.

declared his intention to commit suicide.
" But if auy of you can couvince me that
it is worth while to live," he said, " I will
not kill myself." Tliey talked with him a

E37A Sacramento Chinaman imported a
woman from China as his slave, and accord
ing to Chinese ethics iu California was
regarded by his fellow couutrymen there as
her absolute owner. Notwithstanding this
another Chinamen fell in love with her,
and secretly carried her off and married
her. This was looked upon by the Chinese
community in general as an outrage upon
the rights of property, and the purchaser
of the woman was aided by them in various
endeavors to regain possession of her.
Among other devices a criminal prosecu
tion wsb resorted to ou the ground of in
cest, a witness being procured to swear
that the newly married couple were brother
and sister. No lawyer, however, could be
found In Sacramento willing to conduct the
proseoutlon far enough to compel the
District Attorney to take it up, and the
suborned witness failing to appear before
the committing magistrate, the cssewas
dismissed. A warrant was then issued for
the perjurer, but, as usual in such cases
the police failed to find him. The married
couple now live together undisturbed, but
the mau Is said to be in constant danger of
assassination, and it is predicted that he
will not permanently escape that fate.
