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.
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

Williams and Detective McElfresh to

"Ho was the worst frightened man

Some Remarks on Court Week.
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
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.

The Women's Temperance Convention,
At the afternoon sesdioii of

interesting address on the Hayes
Temperance testimonial. Reports were
made by Hupeiinteiideuts of depart

There was a very large attendance
at the evening session. The devo

Mrs. Ilaunah W. Smith, of Philidsl

Caroline B. Buell, of Connecticut, th
corresponding Secretary; Mis. J. K.
Barney, and Mrs. Annnie Wit ten my er,

womanly sympathy with Mrs. Cai field
and the American people in their re

adopted, and suppplemented it by
singing "God Sve the Queen." Reso
lutions of regret of Dr. Mason Noble
were adopted.
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
