Wt have partly expressed our opin
ion, the pinion of all true men, on
the utter wantonness and wickedness
ef the attempt to assassinate so goed
and well beloved a President as James
A. 'Garfield. No man can feel the
force ef this blow at our free govern
ment nor comprehend its utter das
tardliness more fully than does the ed
itor of this paper; but in all fairness
to the party, to ourselves, we protest
against the unwarranted attempt of
some men and some newspapers to
drag the unfortunate complications of
the Republican party into this crime,
or to feist it on to one party or an
other. Even in Europe the opinion at
once expressed was that the man was
crazy and that it had no political sig
nificance further than his own imagi
nation. Every scrap of evidence sift
ed goes to show the man as a worth
less, unreliable fanatic, capable of any
unworthy act of his own volition and
without being urged by any one.
Whatever hi3 maniac utterances
may have been on that day he was no
more -a stalwart in a political sense
than he was a half breed. He claims
to hAve helped break the unit rule at

retary Blaine and the Administration,
up to the time of the shooting. He
continually importuned the President

adminisiration. Among his crazy let

"I regret the troHble you are having
with Senator Cnkling. You are right
and shuld maintain your position.
You have my support and that of all
patriotic citizens. I should like an
audience of a few moments."
Thi3 does not read much like a stal
wart, but only like a man that wanted
a place. If anything is at the bottom
of this mere than his own devilishness
it is the crazy thirst for office all class
es seem to be imbued with lately, and
if the President recovers and te will
banish the whole horde of hungry of

their own estimation) he will nt have

things will be accomplished through
his wisdom and prudence hereafter.
We do not mean by insane as offer
ing an' excuse or palliation far this
man's crime, or that any party or fac
tion should be in the least shielded if
found guilty, bat only that the bare
facta and testimony of Secretary
Blaine and ethers pronounce him in
sane and unbalanced; and that unwar
ranted charges should not be muck.
Let a calm, impartial, judicial investi
gation be made and then apportion
disgrace and punishment.
Here is what Guiteau said in his
letter t General Sherman: "I am a
lawyer, theologian and politician. I
am one of the stalwarts." If his
declaration compromises any body it
is lawyers, theologians and politicians

this letter was addressed, as well as

The Attempted Assassination
PARTICULARS IN D ETA II
The President Still Lives.
Latest News, &c, Ac.
The terrible crime at Washington
and its probable consequences are by
this time known to most of our
readers. It would be entirely imposs
ible to give in the space of our paper
any detailed account of the whole
matter and the President's situation'
from day to day, when it has occupied
eight and ten pages of large daily
newspapers. We can but give the
meagre facts from day to day, but
will make them as full as our space
time and hands permit. The supple
ment contains the earlier news and in
fact all that was known on the Third.
Commencing from that date we find:
Washington, July 3. At 12 o'clock
to-night the President's condition was
alarming. Secondary inflammation had
set in. and the pulsation was raising
rapidly. Tbe physicians had been ex
pecting the change in the patient's
condition, and were not surprised
when it came.
The wound was dressed about 11
o'clock, but the President's pulse had
risen before the wound was touched.
All that medical skill can do for Gen
eral Garfield has been done and now
the physicians are awaiting the re
sult. It is a very critical time. If
the President's constitution is strong
enough to stand the terrible agony
which he must endure and the drain
upon the forces of his system he will
recover. Otherwise he will die.
This caused great consternation
but later in the day better news was
received and the morning of the
Fourth opened with a prospect of the
" THE VICE PRESIDENT'S VISIT.
Special telegram to the lute r-Oceao.
Washington, July 3. About 9:20
tonight Vice President Arthur, in
company with Senator John P. Jones,
of Nevada, drove up to the White
House and alighted. After shaking
hands with Commissioner G. B Raum,
both gentlemen ascended the 6 1 air way
and entered the Cabinet-Toom where
they were met by Private Secretary
Brown, General James, and the Hon.
Shaking hands with all present, the
Tice President asked, in tones of un
mistakable anguish, after the Presi
dent's health. He begged to be al
lowed to see hini but the judgment of
both friends and physicians was
against this. The conversation was
confined solelv to the President's in-
uries and the great calamity which
had befall. n the country.
THE CONSPIRACY QUESTION.
Special to the Inter-Ocean.
Washington, July 8. Chief Brooks
of the Secret Service was met by jour
correspondent this evening at 9:30
What is your theory regarding
the shooting," was asked.
"I think, replied Mr. Brooks, "that
Guiteau did it of his own accord and

in the city. One of them is Frank
Cosgrove, who did big work in the
Manhattan Bank robbery case. They
are supposed to be here in connection
with the shooting of the President.

that the act is something more than

Washington, July 4. The 105th
anniversary or the declaration or the
Nation s independence was a sad one
in Washington to-day. But from the
elegant flags floating from the masts
on the public buildings, and the
crowds of department clerks on. the
streets, one would not have observed
that the business of the day opened as
the dawn of a Sabbath morn. There
was no sound of the booming cannon
nor the pomp of military parade. The
President lay at the point of death.
and the solemn silence was profound.
Instead of the happy faces and joyous
demonstrations which signaled the
celebration of a patriotic Deople, there
were painful greetings and subdued
inquiries as to the fate'of the people's
chieftain. It was a 15th of April
rather than a 4th of July. The assas
sination instead of the celebration was
the theme of the day. The small boy
with his fire-crcker and torpedo, for
once was not to be seen, and tne po

New York, July .4 The critical
condition of President Garfield, yes
terday attracted a large number of
persons to the Fifth Avenue Hotel to
learn the latest news from the bull
etins. The crowd was much greater
than on Sunday, and continued so dur

that there were more politicians, es
pecially "Stalwarts present than at
any time before or- since tbe President
was shot. There was also present in
the hotel corridors, ex-Attorney Gen

She endures the trying ordeal in a
manner which commands the admira

with her husband is described as an
affecting scene. "How is he?" she
said, as she placed her hands in those

quickly up the stairs and was directed
to the room where he was lying. The
door was thrown open and she

eyes and saw who it was. Mrs. Gar

threw her arms around him. "It is

almost inaudible expression of love

could. The single witness was moved
to tears, but Mrs. Garfield's bearing

said the president. "I would rather die
than to be the cause of bringing on a
relapse of her illness."
WEDNESDAY S TELEGRAMS.
Washington, July 5. At this hour
(12:40 a. m.) Dr. Bliss, who has charge
of the president's case is sleeping. The
watchers have observed no unfavor
able symptoms since midnight, and
that the president s condition is not
materially changed since that hour.
CONCERNING THE ASSASSINATION.
Col. William A. Cook in an inter
view says of the assassination:. All
theories should be temporarily enter
tained, s as to be considered in con
nection with all the facts that may be
ascertained. Wlnrivw these facts in the
end may guide, w should be willing
to follow, irrespective of persons and
party. The better course is, whether
the president dies r lives, to take time
quietly, and persistently pursue inves
tigation to aim at the ulimate truth
to suspend all final judgment till this
is done, and thus to form careful, cor
rect and just opinion. The time has
come when perhaps the nation is to be
aved from the acts of desporadoes
and villains, while at the same time
any really unfortunate imbecile must
be treated-with proper and wise con
sideration. no "faction" in it.
The New York Sun says: Fortun
ately, deplorable as the event is, and
although it will be attended by impor
tant personal consequences, the death
of Gen. Garfield will have no political
significance. It was not the work of a
party or faction, but wa3 perpetrated
by one man, who is understood to
have been in a state of mental aberra
tion. GUITE"AU's WDRTI1LESSNESS.
Chicago, July 5. Evidence of
Guiteau'. deadbeatisra is continually
coming to light, Nearly every board
ing house keepei in the city has a bill
against him. Nearly every restaurant
has his I O U, and all hotels have rec
ords of discredit. The accumulative
evidence is rather to the effect that he
s a scoundrel, utterly devoid of moral-
tv or decency ; that he is insane no
body ever considered, but attributed
his actiens to moral obliquity. A
special says he was hung in effigy at
r lint, Michigan, with the hearty exe
cration of citizens who took part in
It was thought necessary to guard
Conkling's rooms in New York on the
4th as in case of the sudden death of
the President, threats had been made
against his life.
Vice President Arthur is in Wash
ington and feel3 the blow keenly , re
alizing the exciting circumstances un
der which he would take the Chair
should the president die.
Secretary Blaine has won the respect
of every ne by his action and denies
saying it was a plot or had any con
nection with present political compli
cations but that it was the act of a
fanatical, disappointed man.
The Fourth of July here was cele
brated in duwform, barring the cloud
thrown ever all joyous demonstration
by the news from Washington.
We hav. not space this week to
enter into details fully,. and the boys
must this once take the will for the
deed, and pardon the Herald for its

Everything passed off pleasantly and
harmoniously, and, except the over
hanging cloud of bad news expected
from Washington, it was one of the
best Fourths ever held here.

and decided on a picnic, on the Fair
grounds Sept. 17th, to which old sol

particulars of which will be given
hereafter. The day closed without
serious accident, - . -
Report says that two men and a
boy were drowned at the bridge, in the
Mo. River, on the night of the Fourth.
The Bridge Watchman declares he
saw three persons get into an old un
used skiff, that was leaky and attempt
to cross the riyer. Soon after cries of
"help" were heard and the darkness
prevented his seeing the final result
but as no trace of their landing on the
Iowa side can be found the presump
tion is that whoever they were they
On Tuesday another report said that
Charlie Graves, Shared Graves, and
one of Dr. Raney's boys at Rock Bluffs
were missing and it was thought they
might be the parties. At this writing
we have not been able to verify this
We cannot trace the drowning of
any one to an3 certain source.
The Graves boys and the Raney
boy are at home safe. We have
seen Mr. Johusen, Mr. Micklewait
and every one that ought to know
about this; ouly one thing is certain;
some one was in the Rirec clinging
to an old boat on the 4th about nine
P. M. and shouting for help. A
Bates boy from Rock Bluffs is said
to be missing.
The Fourth of July passed off
here without any accident to speak of
except the premature explosion of the
Fireworks, by which Mr. McLennan
was scorched somewhat. The upset-
ingof the advertising wagon early in
the day and the frightening of M. L.
White's horse by the fire engines were
not serious at all, so that our Fourth
may be said to have been perfect as
far as accidents are concerned.
We learn t hat W. S. Wise m et with
another accident on Tuesday evening
as he was riding down Main street.
Some ungodly boy shot a Roman can
dle out in the street and frightened

Schlegel's cigar store, breaking the
buggy and injuring Wise considerably.

begins to look as if the entire popula

The attendance has been simply en

given perfect satisfaction. The as

A Problem for Skeptics.
Mr. Moody's. visit and work here
have puzzled not a little those who
don't believe in Christianity. They
have been accustomed to say that
preaching is a profession merely that
preachers work for pay just as lawyers
or doctors do that evangelists are a
sort of star performers who travel
about because they can make more
money in that way than by preaching
statedly in one place. But a man
comes to San Francisco to hold a series
of meetings. He is known to be in
very moderate circumstances. He
brings with him four assistants. They
make no bargain beforehand. They
ask nobody for money. . They do not
solicit or accept any one's hospitality.
They go to a hotel and pay their bills.
They hold meetings day and night.
They labor in season and out of sea
son to reform the vicious, to comfort
the sad, to instruct the ignorant.
Thousands are benefited, and bless God
far their coming and their work. Yet
from none of these do they seek or
receive any pecuniary reward. The
largest churches are open night alter
night; no admission fee is charged;
no collection is taken up; first-class
music is provided; eloquent sermons
are delivered ; polite ushers are in at
tendance to welcome all who come,
and to seat them as comfortably as
possible without reference to dress,
color or nationality. These meetings
goon for five months. And Mr. Moody,
instead of asking San Fruiucisco to give
him monev.begins to giveit money.and
get money for it. He finds our Chris
tian Association burdened with a debt
of $34,000. He says that debt must be
paid. He pledges for himself and his
Eastern friends one-half of the
amount, and then lie goes from house
to house and man to man in this city
begging them to do as much for them
selves for their own home institution
as lie and his friend are willing to
do. Instead of coming here to receive
and carry away thousands of dollars,
as he might have done, he comes to
work for us for nothing, to pay his
own expenses, and then get us pecuni
ary aid from abroad to the amount of
over $40,000. What is the man's mo
tivewhat can it be? His home in
3,000 miles away. lie lias no property
or business interests here. He is not
seeking reputation, for San Francisco
can not add anything to that which he
has already won in larger cities. He
is not a crazy dreamer, but one of the
clearest headed men I ever met. His
prominent characteristic is hard com
mon sense. Then why does he spend
his time and his money in this way?
If you ask him he has an answer
ready. It is the answer of that great
apostle whose faith and consecration
he admires and emulates: "The love of
Christ constraineth me." - But if there
is no Christ whose love we can feel
whose love can become a living power
and impulse in our souls what then?
Let the skeptic wrestle with his prob
lem Let him find a "man who shows
such unselfish devotion to his race
without stimulus of this divine love
if he can. But until such a mm is
found we shall receive such lives a3
that of Paul and Moody as evidences
of a superhuman presence and power
in the souls of men.
Our Y. M. C. A. being now ffee from
debt, and reorganized .for efficient
work, will become, wo hope, a great
power for good in this city, where so
many thousands f noble young men
are making shipwreck of their pros
pects for time and for eternity.

-Manv persons are bitterly opposed
to "patent medicines," and will rarely ',
use them at all. There is no doubt ;
that many are worthless, yet a remedy :

wavs the first to suffer during nervous prostra

causes total suspension of the muscular aetioa
of the heart, producing Miidden heinorraae
and death. No doubt any longer remain of
the praetibllitv ef restoring the nervous system,
and through the nerves the muscles of the im
paired organs. I'oIIow'm Corapouiiil .yr
nn of IIypopU-iitjite bee r proved to
possess such power in iiuuktou instances. It
will impart sjreni;!i to overcome trouble and
affliction. Persons who are accustomed to look
upon the dark side, and who sec no pleasure in

and enjoy life, and those who study oeeply
during Ions hours, will find in the syrup a pio
uiotor of the power of endurance in the brain.
There is no doubt of this fact, that an im
paired Nervous Sv.tem causes Consumption.
Neuralgia, Pronchiti. Dyspepsia. Aslhmv
Whooping Cou.'li. Heart Disease, and a host
