Gulteau wrote to tho president a few
weeks ago: "I regret tho trouble you
aro having with Senator Conkling.
You aro right, and should maintain
your position. You have my support,
and that of all patriotie citizens." Sup
pose ho had taken it into his head to
kill Conkling; would Mr. Rosowntor
havo attributed tho crime to tho Rob
ertson faction 'f Omaha Republican.
Ho might, if he could havo worried
in a lie somewhere.
It Is credit ublo to tho nowspapors of
the west that comparatively few of
them sought to turn tho attempted
assassination of the President to politi
cal account. Not so much can be said
for tho New York papers, The major
ity of them wove into thoir comments
a spirit that any decent American ought
to bo ashamed of. Inter Ocean.
Tho Omaha Bee is among tho dis
honored exceptions among western
newspapers, but as the editor of tho
lice is of tho samo typo of humanity as
Guiteau, nothing hotter could be ex
pected of him.
Inter Ocean : Tho fact is, Guiteau
boasted that he made General Gartiold's
nomination possible at Chicago, by
breaking the unit rule; that his speech
in the hitter's favor was tho real means
of electing the President ; that ho had
always been the friend of Blaine, and
ho was sore anil angry that what he
deemed mighty services had not been
recognized. To declare himself a stal
wart was to declare a lie ; but it was a
ready way of fastening suspicion on a
body of men that do not wugo battle by
stealth or in secret, but openly and
bravely. Charles Guiteau belongs to
the other class to tho Medill-Wator-son
family, and this is a good time to
place him whero ho will feel at homo.
Tho great boast of Guiteau in "Wash
ington has been that he broko the unit
rulo at tho Chicago convention. "We
had supposed that Sessions and Itobort
sojfnnd Woodin wero ontitled to the
honor of that act, but it seems that
oven they had their leader. Inter
Guiteau claims that ho "broko the
unit rulo" by a speech ho made, that
oleoted Garlield.and entitled tho breaker
to a choice of olllces. Guiteau, wo
presume, would not be willing to di-
vulo the honor of broUKing tho unit
rulo with Sessions, Robertson and
Sir Edward Thornton says that some
years ago, when crazy British subjects
indulged in the pastime of shooting at
the Queen, "just for tho fun of tho
thing," tho authorities wero much puz
zlod to know what moans to employ
to prevent assassination. Finally they
took to sending such offondors to an
asylum, whero thoy wero regularly
whipped, and this modo of punishment
seemed to act as a perfect preventive.
There aro threo classes of scoundrels
in his country who ought to bo served
tho same way. Tho first is composed
of such man as Guiteau, who havo ho
strong a desire to leap to importance
that thoy do it at tho oxponso of mur
der. Tho second is tho class led by
Nihilists like Schwab, of Now York,
who chatter and chuckle over tho
shooting of tho President, and give out
word that Grant will "got a dose pretty
soon," becauso ho has dared to condemn
such persons as this Schwab and his
associates. Tho third is composed of
editors who seek to inllamo tho passions
of just such brutes as both tho above
classes, and incito murdor by protend
ing that tho Vico President and Sena
tor Conkling aro indirectly, if not di
rectly, responsible for the crime at
Washington. There ought to bo a law
whoreby such scoundrels could be ar
rested, tried, sent to tho asylum or tho
workhouso, and havo a littlo sonso nnd
humanity beaten into them. Though
assuming more virtuo than their first
named associates in crimo, thoy aro
more dangerous than either of the oth
er two classes, and should bo dealt with
accordingly. It is justBuch men who
rouso mobs, incito rovolutionB, and sot
tho crazy murderers at work, while
thoy go off to some safo hiding placo
and onjoy tho spectacle. Tho pooplo
know and realizo this in Chicago, and
if tho crimes which theso men havo
covertly advised should bo committed
as a result of their labor, oven tho most
patient appeals to moderation could
not provont tho condign punishment
which would pursuo and fall upon
them. It is a good timo for such In
cendiary cowards to display a littlo
discretion. Tho path of safety, as woll
as decency, leads that way. Inter
Tho following, written by Guiteau
to tho president, gives the Ho to his
boast thst ho was a stalwart;
" reiret the trouble yon are haciny
with Senator Cankllny. You are riijht
and should maintain your position.
You haco mv support, and that of all
Such assassin sheets as the Chicago
Tribune, Louisville Courier Journal
and Omaha Jive persist in their dastard
ly efforts to connect tho attempted as
sassination with Conkling and Arthur,
because the assassin 'in the supremo
moment of his crimo as an oxousb for
its commission, declared himself a stal
wart. If thero Is any political signifi
cance in tho sayings and doings of Gui
teau and they aro entitled to none
wo placo against his declaration of
st.tlwartlsm his letter; to the president
written coolly, declaring his sympathy
with tho administration. Guiteau
was not a stalwart. Ho was an ad
ministration man. And falling out
with tho administration because ho
could nat get an olllco he avenged his
insulted honor with pistol and bullet,
and confirms tho old saying that fami
ly quarrels aro tho worst of quarrels.
Now, understand us. . We hellovo that
Guiteau, whether crazy or not, shot
the president through spite; that had
ho got tho olllco ho sought ho would
not havo shot the president; ho would
not havo declared himself a stalwart;
ho would have still adhered to the sen
timents of the above note to the presi
dent. Tho very fact that he hung
around tho capitol boring tho president
and heads of departments for unofficial
appointment is evidence ample, that if
ho had any sympathy wlth.any faction
it must have been with the administra
tion, whom ho claimed, in his excess
ive and crazy egotism, to have been
greatly instrumental in electing. If
ho was a stalwart why did ho not go to
tho stalwarts for assistance in securing
a placo. Ho called on Blaine, and the
President, and tho othor administration
men, but there is no (vidonco that he
ever wont to a stalwart, oven for a
recommendation. Mr. Conkling and
Mr. Arthur wero in Washington nil
winter, and Guiteau was thero also
pushing his claims for ofilco, and even
long before tho troublo aroao between
tho administration and Mr. Conkling,
but Guiteau uevor approached thoso
leading stalwarts for any favors in any
shape. Ho certainly would havo at
tempted to obtain their holp or to get
on friendly terms with them had ho
been such a terrible stalwart, but ho
did not, and Conkling nor Arthur had
any recollection of tho man. Now
then if Guiteau is to be placed as an
important factor in political events, as
the abovo named incendiary papers in
sist ho must be, then whero ho belongs
is directly and most positively with the
faction with which ho quarreled, and
in no manner anywhoro else.

Oorrospondonco Botwoon Ooukling and
Washington, July 7. Tho follow
ing correspondence has passed between
Conkling and Attornoy-Genernl Mac
Velgh: Fimi Avknuk Hotel, New York,
Julys. My Dear Sir: In tho abhor
rence with which all decent men alike
shudder at tho attempt to murdor tho
president, I have given thought to a
matter to whicli your attention may or
may not have turned. Our crim
inal code treats premeditated homicide
in all cases alike, irrespective of the
victim, murder being visited by the
greatest penalty. Perhaps no distinc
tion between ono case and another
could be founded on public relations
held by tho person slain, but in case of
an attempt tp murder a broad distinc
tion can be mado between assailing tho
life of an individual and an at
tempt to take a life of special value to
tho whole people. Tho shocking oc
currence of Saturday, I think, demands
that the definition and punishment of
assaults aimod at high executive offi
cers, whether successful or not, should
bo made thoroughly rigorous. Tho
man who attempts the life of tho Pres
ident, if morally rosponslblo, commits
an offense which tho nation should
guard against and punish by exertion
of all tho power that civilized nations
may employ. 1 suggest this as deserv
ing consideration. My profound sym
pathies aro with tho prosident and all of
you overy hour. Tho conflict of re
ports keep Impound fear striving with
each other, with nothing stable except
facts and the trust that the worst is
past. 1 wish you would express to tho
president my deepest sympathy in this
hour, which should hush all discord
and enlist pniyora for his safe deliver
ance. Pleaso also give to Mrs. Garfield
my most respectful condolence. Trust
ing that all will bo well, I am cordially
(Signed) Roscoe Conkling.
Hon. Hoscoo Conkling, Fifth Avenuo
Hotel, Thanks for your letter of tho
oth, whicli has just reached me. Its
suggestions will bo carefully considered
and its kind message of sympathy will
bo convoyed to tho president and Mrs.
Garfield at tho earliest opportunity.
