BY G. W. FA HBK
A dispatch says, "C. 12. Perkins, pres
ident of tho Chicago, Hiirllncton &
Quincy railroad, sees nothing encour
aging in tho crop prospocta of Illinois
and Iowa, although Nebraska aijd Kan
sas promiso woll.
Iowa reports regarding corn crop
show largely increased acreage all over
the state, but on this sido of tho Di
vide tho plant is very backward, look
ing yellow and sickly. On tho western
slope, extending into Nebraska, tho
prospect is splendid for a big crop. In
tho eastern part of tho state steady
hot weather is needed to secure evon a
moderate crop. Wheat and oats
in splendid condition.
Tho President and his managers
started out to punish tho majority of
tho Republican party thot elected Gar
field, and it is systematically excluding
from office all who aro opposed to a
third term for Grant, and who object
to tho Republican party being disfran
chised by machine tactics. Kansan
That is a low down lio.as any one con
versant with the President's appoint
ments, woll know. Some conscience
less newspapers started out determined
to find fault with the administration,
and they moan to do so, if thoy never
utter another truth during their oxis
tenco. A man named John Roach reoontly
went to tho chiof police of Jersey City,
and desired to give liimsolf up, "I
helped to commit a murder in Penn
sylvania ton yoars ago," oxplaiuod
Roach, "and huvo sufforod so, muoh
since that I've dogided to put an end to,
it by making a clean breast of tho affair
and taking punishment." Roaoh's state
ment is that ten yoars ago thoro lived
near him at Ursine, Somerset county,
Pa., a man named I.ovi Holm, who did
not like a neighbor nnmod Mitohell,
who was courting ids (Holm's) daugh
ter. Holm and Roach agrood to way-i
lay Mitohell, and mot him ono night
as he was going to see tho young lady.
They attaokod him and killed lm.
Then thoy latd Ids body across the rail
road traok, but tho train only out off
ono of tho arms of tho murdured man.
Holm and others woro arrested on sua-
I picion at tho time, but not hold.
EXECUTION OF QUITEAU.
Tho death warrant demanded thnt
tho assassin should ho hanged between
tho hours of 12 in, mid '2 p. m.. on the
ugui oi ,iuue.
uU 12:5!J tho trap was sprung and ho
with hurled into oternity.
Guiteau's last night on earth was a
restless ono for him, ho not sleeping
moro than twonty minutes at a time.
His last breakfast was taken at ti:au.
Ho ordorcd his dinner to bo brought to
him at 11 o'clock sharp, which was
done, and which ho ato with a relish.
RoV. Dr. Hicks was his constant at
altendant and spiritual advisor, who
sparod no pains in gotting him ready
for glory, and was up and watchful
with him all tho last night. ' Guitcau
requested Dr, Ilicks to arrange with
tho warden to havn tho trap sprung as
soon after VI o'clock as possible.
Ho said Ilia heart was very tender, If
so, a groat improvement since a year
auo when ho shot his Inoffeiislvo victim
in tho back.
Ho was thoughtful to order all com
plimentary illusions to President Ar
thur to be stricken from his book. This
becauso Arthur refused to pardon or
At 10 o'clock ho took a bath.
J. V. Guiteau and Mrs. Seovillo were
in the city. Tho former witnessed the
execution. Mrs. Scovillo went to the
jail door and stood and wept, but was
not admitted. She sent her doomed
brother in a (lower cross and anchor.
Ho wore a pair of navy blue pants, and
at 1 1 wo had Ids hoots slitued, About
12 ho gave way to his feelings and wept
hysterically, but soon regained his com
posure. Tho jail was surrounded with
soldiers and artillery.and tho clatter of
tho buts of muskets on tho pavomont
disturbed him greatly.
At 12:2.' Guiteau was led to the
scalTold by the warden and other at
tendants and olUcials. An account of
this moment says: "His face was pal
lid, and the muscles about his mouth
moved nervously. Oilier than thin
thoro wero no signs of faltering. The
procession moved quickly to tho scaf
fold and Guiteau ascended tho some
what steep stops with as much steadi
ness as could bo expected from a man
whoso arms wore pinioned. At the
last step ho faltered a moment but was
assisted by tho otllcers who walked on
oi'r side." Guitetiu gazed upon the
eiBjtliokeil op at tho beam overhead,,
nirvqufcikiyniaiiu a survey ot all 'tho'
di'ead paraphernalia. As soon as the"
crowd had gained access Gen. Crocker
waved to them to uncover, and all
heads wero b.ired.
Dll. HICKS THIiN l'ltAYKI)
in those wordH: "Father, out of tho
depths wo cry to Thco. Hear thou our
supplication for tho sako of Jesus
Christ, tho Savior, who has made full
preparation for us. Uehold thy sorv;
ant. Wo humbly pray that thou will
deliver him at this supreme moment Of
of Ids life. Let thy light descend upon
him. Liberate his soul from prison.
May ho appear before absolved by thy
great morcy from blood guiltiness. De
liver him and us. God liavo morcy on
us. Christ have mercy. Lamb ot God,
that takest away the sins of the world.
have mercy. Amen."
J)r. Hicks then oponed tho Rible and
Guiteau read the tenth chapter of Mat
thews, 28th to 41st verso inclusive.
During tho morning hnhad written his
last prayer, which now, as hia arms
wero pinioned, Dr. Hicks held boforo
him and tho prisoner after saying "I
am now going to road to you my last
dying prayer," read with deliberation
and emphasis tho followingtir-ado:
Father, now I go to thee, and Savior, I have
finished the work that thou gavest me to do, and
I am only too happy to go to thee. The world
does not yet appreciate my mluUn, but thou
knowcit It, Thou knoweit thou didst inspire
Garfield's removal, and only good has come from
it. This is the host evidence that my inspiration
came from thee, and I have set it forth in my
book that all men ma.y read and know that thou,
Father, didst inspire the act for which I am mur
dered. The government and nation by this act,
I know, will incur thy enmity, a did 'he Jews by
killing thy man, my Savior. Tho retribution '.In
that, case came quick and sharp, and I know the
divine law of retribution will strike this, nation
and my murdurers in tho same way. The diabol
ical spirit of this nation, its government and
newspapers towards me will justify theo in curs
ing, That divine Uw, of retribution is inexora
ble, I theroforefore predict that this nation will
go down in blood and my murderers, f(om executive-to
hangman.,, will go to holl. ThyUwsare
Inexorable Oh, thou Supreme Judge, woe unto
the- men that violate- thy laws. Only weeping
and gnajtyngof tectty.await them. Tho Amer
ican press has a targe, bill to ltUJ w'th thee,
righteous, Father, tor their vindictiveness in this
mutter. Nothing hut blood will satisfy them,
and now my blood be on them and this nation
and Its. oflieiats, Arthur Is a coward, and an in
grate. His ingratitude to methat mid; him and
saved hjs party and the land from overthrow, has
op parallel in history, but thou, righteous Father,
wjll, judgo him. Father, thou knowcit me, but
the world hath nor known me, and now I go to
thee and the Savior, without the slightest ill-will
towards a human being. Farewell, ye men of
Ho thon road and nttompted to sing
some silly verses, of which tho follow-"
lam going to the Lordy,
I am so gladX am going to the Lordyj
I am so glad I am going to the Lordy,
Glory, hallelujah I Glory, hallelujah!
I am going to the Lordy.
I love the Lordy with all my soul,
Gloryt hallelujah I
And that is the reason I am going to tho Lordy,
Glory, hallelujah 1 Glory, hallelujah I
I am going to the Lordy."
At the cloao of this performance
Ilicks gaYo Guiteau his final benedic
tion and farewell, saying, "God tho
Father bo with thee and glvo tiieo
peaeo forovermoro." Tho attendants
thou pinlcned his legs and carofully
adjusted the noose about his nook. Mr.
Strong pulled tho black cap over his
head, and as lie did so Guiteau called
out in loud tones, "Gloiy, glory ; glory!"
Instantly tho Bpriug was touched, tho
drop fell, and Guiteau foil into tho air.
Tho body turned partly around, .but 1
thoro was not tho ulghtest porcoptiblo
moTOiuoht of tho limbs. When the
drop fell a yell was set up by some per
son lnsldo tho jail. This was re-echoed ,
outside by thousands of pooplo who ,
hurrahed h stily.
Tho executiou was a success. Tho
body hung half ail hour, and was then
lowered into tho collln.
Tho uutnpaY rovealed the fact thitbv
tho assassin's brain was not diseased
that is if "exports" know anything 'f
about it. Tho opinion that his crooked
nature was of oongonital origin that
his crazy meanness was born in him

New York June l, 1882. Dear Sir:
I am honored by your Invitation to
spoak in Boston on the nth instsfor
Iroland and against her wrongs and
woes. Such meetings ought to be hold
and Massachusetts is a wcll-chosim
place to hold one. Tho crueltioa and
oppressions which Ireland has nurtured
disgraco this oonturyt thoy would tils
grace any contnry in which nations
protend to lovo right and hato wrong.
It is the affair of man every whore, and
Americans osp0binlly should have
somothlng to say and aomothlng to do
about it. I could say much and yet
not express my horror and Indignation
at events which must shook manhood

meaningless, colorloas motions. Wheth
er It will be posslblo for mo to attond
your mooting is all nncortain, but bo
this as it may, I mn heart and
soul with you in making a protest
whioh all may hear.
