Orarflr i:eiiii ays they left the court house at 2:40 p. , to. When opposite the Holmes house, D. street and New Jersey av enue, they met a man on horseback lie noticed the man because he had seen the face in the court-roou. Ri -ing near the van the stranger seemed anxious to get a look at the prisoner, out Edelin said to him, "There's nothing in there for you to see." With this the horseman turned about and was seen no more until on First street, near Capital street. There he rode up from behind, and as the van turntd into East Capital street he was on its right. Dropping behind he peered through the grating and pushed his norse quickly to the left ef the van. Frooi this point and before the officer could diricjver that be had a pistol, he hied a shot through the grating, and then wheeled suddenly back toward Fust street. The officer tired at tiim as he turned, and thinks lie struck him, for he fell forward on his horse and continued in that posi tion, riding northward en First street. Without wailing to inquire about the condition of the prisoner, the van wa. started in pursuit of toe horseman, but time was lost iu turning over cur tracks on East Capital street, and the fugitive had to good a start. The an pursued as fr as K street, down which the hois'iian nd, but he was soon lost to sight. T his occurrence has caused consid erable excitement in the city. The Star extra last evening says that n man of published description was around the city hall several hours to-day. He said tie was from Prince George's county, Va. : that he was an old army mate of Gen. Garfield's, and he was here to mur der his assassin. He had intended to do it yesterday, but had waited until to day because it was the fiftieth anni versary of Garfield's birthday. People thought he was drunk, and to when he went out of the building, mounted an old horse and rode off, no particu lar attention was paid to him. TIIK DEPUTY MARSHALS STORY. Perry Carson says: I had s-en the assailant repeatedly. He came iaund the City Hall on horseback ye- terday, but a he did not lollow. I sup posed that ail was right. To-day when we drove oil he was there again and lbde after us to First street. Then he rode ahead and turned off, and I had supposed that he had gone for good. When we readied the de pot at the corner of New Jersey ave nue, he roue up oeiunu again, ana when we turned up First slreet was quite ci3tf and leaning forward on his horse, hi head quite close to rue, ne peered through the I slats in the door. Juntas we turned the corner of Fiit and Capital streets he rode past me and up aionr the side of the van. 1 leaned around to see where he was going just as he placed the pistol at the lower corner of the second top panel from the front, but could not Bee what he done witli the pistol Because of the smoke, but heaid the horses hoof 8 clatter, and then another shot was tired by Edelin. The stranger then dashed out toward the railroad track and we made a lively race after him, but the hill broke us off and he got away All this time we didn't know whether Guiteau w as shot or not. No sound came from the inside, and we conclud ed that the lest plan was to drive to the jail at once and we did so. When I opened the door Guiteau almost sprann in to my arms. He was stand ing up holding his right wrist and said lie had been hit, but didn't think it was bad. He said: "Mr. Carson, I desire vou to tell Deputy Marshal Williams and Detective McElfresh to double my guard on Monday." "Ho was the worst frightened man I evr saw. He was as pale as a ghost, and faid that he was standing up when shot. Note of The (Jreat Trial. Thr man arrested for shooting at Guiteau Saturday i named Wis. Jone. EvM-uce oi iucntitk-ation was contradictory, but he was held in o,UUU bona u.-veila.et.. Jones i3 well known in Washington, owns a farm on the Hates road, has been ar- restea a nuiuoei oi times ior playing F,0'ceraan arresting innocent peo:la Ac, and is another crank no ..doubt whether he in the shootist or not. Guiteau attributed his escape to the intervention of Deity in his behalf, and came into court Monday cool and busy as ever. His guards were doubled. The and old quarrel . between Scoville Robinson came up agvin. Robinson asked to be relieved and discharged from the case. Guiteau now wants Robinson to stay in the case. The court did discharge Robinson, and as Scoville was addressing the court Guiteau' broke in: I under-etodd Judg? M.ngruder was anxious td ass:f.t in tin& trial, also Mr." Townseud. 1 should like to have them appear here, as well as Judge Swett, or Trude, of Chicago." Then adding, after a pause, "On the question ot malpractice my idea is simply this, that by tht physicians' own statement the 25th of July, the president was not fatally shot. We ion 1 want i press me suojecc or press the subject desire to have it 0 on record so that the court may take notice of it." After a brief pause Guiteau added: "That's all there is to the malprac tice business, short and to the point. I want it understood that I appear as mj own counsel here. 1 am au agent ol the L'eitv, and I expect Him to take care of me. I think He lias managed it pretty well so far." The prosecution shorty after rest ed their case when the Judge inform ed Guiteau that he could now be heard ia his defense. Contrary to all his previous assertions that he must and would be heard in his own defense, he now refused to rise and address the court, said he had no set speech to make or defense to set up, hut would take thin hot or cold is they came along. Whu a wit ness told a lie he won! i nnil it right there, fce. He i.- represented as tntifh chang ed, looking careworn and ill. Scoville dd:-csed the Jury at 60mo length.

This -term of Court has been one of the most important ever held in Cass County since we have been here. There have been a large num ber of cases before the court, some involving important principles of law. There were a greater number of criminal cases than usual, our coun ty being one of the most law-abiding in the state as a rule- Those brought up and acted upon were of that nature, however, that does not reflect on the virtue or intelligence of our people. That is to say, the parties indicted for the principal offences were not of this county properly, and the indict ments on whisky cases were such as have occurred in almost every county in the 6tate where liquor is sold under "and since the Slocumb law went into effect. It is sufficient to say that the horse thieves were caught, tried and punished, and are now in the peni tentiary, with a promptness not of ten equaled and seldom excelled, thanks to our officers, the courts, and the prosecuting attorney. The rapist met his fate promptly and while his sentence seemed mild to some, and was perhaps lenient for the offence, yet he was promptly pun ished, which is and should be the aim of the law; prompt and sure pun ishment being the greatest safeguard to the public wellfare, and we are proud of our court, ofiicers, and all in this respect. Amonir the most Important, cases tried at this court, this term, where the Liquor selling cses of Geo. Edg orton and Grace and Thierolf, The caso of Edgerton only came up at the time of our going to press. We cannot give the details in full as we would like fer want of space, suffice to say, that after various motions to de lay, to quash ar to avoid the main is sue made by able and acute aitorney.s the'" case came squarely 'before the Jurv on Wednesday. The prosecution was conducted by Mr. Wodehouse und Mr. Morrison, the defense by Messrs Stevenson, of Neb. City: an4 Sinythe of Omaha; The Jury were as follows; J. F. Eaten, - James Walker, John B. Holmee, S. M. Holden, Wm. Wettincamp, Henry Behrens. J. II. Burnett, A. B. Taylor, W. Mickelwait, J. S. nartmann, Dr. II . Meade, W. Curtis, The defendant claimed right to sell under a license of $500 granted by the Council on 31st of April under the old law. The court throw this license out" at once, and the defense went to me Jury on the plea of asking double pay and the injustice of requiring the de fendant to pay another license of $500 after he had paid one already to the Council. Both sides were ably argued, Mr. Stevenson making all the points ther'o was in his case, Morrison read the law points and acting dis't. .Attor ney Wonehou.io made a re it litt e speech to the Jury to close up. At seven o'clock the Jury had not agreed Later The Jury disagreed and were finally discharged. The Jury was supposed to stand nine to three. The cases of Grace and Theirolf were'eontiuued. The charge of Jude Pound seemed to us so apt and brief, covering the ground so well we give it in full: Gentlemen of the Jurt. . . 1 The .burden is upon the prose cution to prove every Material Allega tion in the indictment and to justify a cotiviction of the defendant the evi dence must satisfy you of his guilt be yond a reasouable doubt. 2. The act of the Legislatuie now in force regulating the sale of malt. spirituous ot vinous liquorein this state toofceffect on the first day of J une A. D. 1831, and since said act took effect it ha3 been and is unlawful for any per son to sell malt, spirituous or. vinous liquors in this state, without having first Obtained a license therefore, from the proper authorities" under said net. By this act all former license la wf, reg ulating the sale of sacu liquors were absolutely repealed and by such repeal all privileges granted under such form er laws were absolutely revoked. 3. The corporals authorities of cit ies and villages have the power lo li cense the sale of malt, pmrittmus ar-d vinous liquors within the limit? of such cities and villages. 4VTo justify the defendant in sell ing such liquors within the limits of the City of Plattsmouth, since said first day of June. A. D., 1881, he must first have obtained a license therefor, under said act from the corporate au- thorites of said city. 5. A license to sell such liquors ob tained prior to said first day of June, ncder a law existing prior to that time would not authorize or justify the de fendant in selling such liquors since said first day of June. fl. If the evidence satisfies you of the defendant's guilt deyond a reason able doubt, it is your duty to return a verdict of guilty. If the evidence fails to satrsfv vou of the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt it is your duty to acquit the defendant. - 1 ou will select a foreman who will ign tbe verdict found. S. B.

At the afternoon sesdioii of : the Woman's National Christian j Temperance Union at Foundry Church, Mits Willard made an interesting address on the Hayes Temperance testimonial. Reports were made by Hupeiinteiideuts of depart ments as follows: "Orr Commission of Inquiry and Statistics of the Liquor Traffic," Mrs. Annie Wittenuiyer Philadelphia, J. A.; on "Legislative work." Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, Clinton, Iowa; on "Friendly lum, Restaurant, &c.,'Mis3F. Jennie Duty, Cleveland, Ohio. There was a very large attendance at the evening session. The devo tional exercises were conducted by Mrs. Ilaunah W. Smith, of Philidsl plda. Interesting addresses and re ports were made by Mrs. Eliza Thomp son, of Ohio, "the first crusader;" Mrs. Caroline B. Buell, of Connecticut, th corresponding Secretary; Mis. J. K. Barney, and Mrs. Annnie Wit ten my er, of Pniiadtlpltia. A resolution, intro duced I j the Michigan Union, com plimentary to Queen Victoria for her womanly sympathy with Mrs. Cai field and the American people in their re cent affliction, was unanimous. y adopted, and suppplemented it by singing "God Sve the Queen." Reso lutions of regret of Dr. Mason Noble were adopted. OXE DAT'S SESSION. Rap! rap! rap! "The convention will plejise come to order as speedily as possible," said Miss Willard, to the satLering of ladies in the Foundry Church this morning, after the Ubvo tional exercises were over. It took te vend more vigorous raps with tha Boston gavel to bring the convention to order, as many little groups of la dies were loth to put an end to a bnef season of merry chat and gossip. When tho convention was brought into harmony by the sing ing of a hymn and a prayer by Mrs. McLoughlin of Boston, the president introduced a gentleman who wa on the platform, whom she spoke of as THE "STANDARD BEARER CAUSE. OF THEIR This gentleman was Senator II. W, Blair, of New Hampshire. -His recep tion by the convention was one of tiie tilings for which the Gathering wi'l be uiwiHorable. The ladies rose Lo their feet and waved their handkerchiefs aud then their enthusiasm broke out into son;,', the hymn. "Our Country "ti3 of Thee" being caught up and sung with glorious vim. When this unus ual deui Miatraiion was over the Sena tor commenced to speak. He spoke for keaily an hour. He realized, he said, ti.ai lie was in the presence of one of the mightiest forces of the country. In . responding tt their in vitation, which he considered a cora uiand. h- could do no more than ex plain certain measures which shoiiia be presented iu order that the cause might prevail not only in this county but throughout the world. To resaove intemperance was te stiike down the frrongest foitress of the enemy of man. He was not here with anj choice or preference of measures. I. was only by prosecution ef ever) measure that can be adopted that this movement could succeed. Discuss ion, he said, is the basis of all intelli gent act;on. The spread of informa tion and its analysis were the only things that could ultimately make the temperance cause successful. - HIS TliOPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENMENT. prohibiting the manufacture and sale of alcoholic and spirituous liquors was only one measure of the great combin ation necessary to success. There was no use ot talking of statutes until the whole mass of the community was convinced of the wrong of intemper ar.ee. That form shonld be adopted, he urged, which was wisest in its juris diction. Four-fifths of their neigh feors were not vet coaviuced and were not prepared to vote for a cunslitu tior.al amendment prohibiting the pale and manufacture of liquors. Ma jorities must be obtained before a rad ical change can be made in the law of the land. I here was work to uoin getting these majorities. The work to be done cor si6ted in producing a conviction that such an amendment should be adopted. - The judges, the Isgislatujes, the masses of the people were against them rl duit't mean to say" said the Sena tor, "they wotld vvote against the teii commandments.1 yet 1 believe they woud if it involved, the . wine cup." APPLAUSE BT THE LADIES. Speaking of his prohibition amend ment, offered in the House in 188 and its introduction at each" congress since then, "as long as I live he said. it will be introduced in every Con gress. This declaration was met with the hearty approbation of the convention. the ladies again rising lo their feet and waving their handkercniefs their way of cheering. 'I think it will be in troduced in the same form" he added, Taking a page of the "Congressional Jecord" he read the amenament, sec tion by section. "I want, you to take hold of this and put it through, la dies" he said; "but if it is wrong, 1 anvouto correct it -hrst. Taking up the articles section by suction, tiie Senator commented on each. He thought it would be a grand thing to begiii the twentieth century with such a measure. He had been charged with introducing a temporizing measure, to rnaka political capital. Great Heavens! It had onlv bothered him in his state. The distilled liquors, he thought, per petrated tiie greatest amount ol evil If by a national law they should firm ly seize upou the greatest of the eviis the most patent and ". easily man- aged and extirpated it, they would have accomplished all Hint lie thought the people. s a nation, would be will ing now to endi se. lie had made the distinction against these liquors with reference to success. If they included si! malt liquors and lighter forms of the evils they would have to wait much lunger. The Senator explained, at considerable length, the obstacles sgniiiBt total ' prohibition the great fight that would be necessary to ac couoplinh it. STATE3 RIGHTS. 5 Mrs. Lathrope, of Michigan, asked a question, as to federal and state power in raruUtinj; the manufacture of liq uors. Tho Senator thought every state had the right to prohibit the sale and manufacture of liquors in its own borders. Delicate questions of law r ipctinff tke exportation of liquors to other states would arise, and he . 1 1 ' . 1 1 i ij 1 J - inougnt national iaw bo-ouju iutue. The- Senator was plied with many questions froi very side reajcting " Tfiisrico Colli. points brought up in his remarks. " A VOICE FROM GF.RMANT. Mrs. Skeltop. ?he delegate from Ger many. whf has an nccent, just fetrong enough to betray her nationality, arose and began to speak. "A voice from Germany," said Miss Wi'a-d. Mrs Rkelton asked if the amend ment inHnded lajrer beer. "Tf we left the laser beer a ne" ."he added, "why then all the Germans would vote for it" but she said he-si tattnirly.
