A (iloomy rrocpect that the Trial will

MORE DAMAGING EVIDENCE.
Til AT OF DR. WALTER KEMP8TER OF
Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean.
Washington, Dec. 29. Dr. Walter
Kempsler, of Winnebago, Wis., an
other expert summoned by the gov
ernment, added bis contribution to-day
to the pile of testimony lisiag so rap
idly to the saniiv of Guiteau. He tes
tified in the strongest manner possible
that Guiteau is and that Le was on the
3d day of Suly, perfectly sane and per
fectly responsible. A rigid crosa-ex-amination,
conducted by Scoville and
Reed, elicited no contradiction of tha
evidence given on the direct examina
tion. Dr. Kempster is an atcom-
plished physician of modest but dig
nified presence, with a graceful but
lucid manner of speaking and he im
pressed everybody in the court room
with the belief that he was speaking
the exact truth.
THE PROCEEDINGS WERE LESS INTER
thau yesterday, but were watched
with close attention by a large audi
ence. Despite the inclemency of the
weather, the throng in the corridors
and auie-rooms exceeded in size any
that has been seen there for
weeks. Xot more than nne out of ten
was admitted to the court-room, which
was full throught the day. Every
body wanted to see Guiteau in the
dock. The general impression was
that he would behave in a very ugly
manner. There was much disap
pointment because the torrent of bill
ingsgate which flowed from his lips
was not broader and deeper than
usual. After his second breakfast, in
the sitting-room overhead, he was led
in by bis guards down staira
through the. crowd in the cor
ridor and the witness-room in at the
little door on the right of the bench,
and thiuugh lh lane made across the
courtroom among the audier.ee to the
dock. He bowed "good-morning" to
his relatives as he passed them, and
sat down with a cheerful smile ou
his face. It passed away in a mo
ment and he
TURNED TO JUDGE COX AND COM
PLAINED that the van was not. accompanied
fvom the jail this morning by the usu
al guard of policemen. He warned
the court that some "cranlC" might
shoot at him as Jones had done if his
protectors, to whose protection he was
entitled, since he was in the custody
of the law, were withdrawn. Ha
thought the cranks' were "not all
dead yet," although they were disap
pearing rapidly. Most of the letters
be receives now, he said, are letters of
sympathy and encouragement. Judge
Cox told his counsel when they appear
ed that the Marshal was the custodian
of the prisoner, and not the Judge, and
that he had no doubt he would be pro
perly protected. Guiteau was quiet
then for a while.

Christmas In Liberty Precinct.
Ed. Herald: A few words about
our School and Christmas doings:
At school house, No. 13, Libeaty
Precinct,, on the night of December
2Cth, a very pleasant surprise awaited
the pupils of the school in the shape of
a Christmas tree. The weather was
propitious; the crowd sufficiently large
for comfort. Fair women and brave
men mingled their voices with the
musical laughter of happy children;
"And all went merry as a marriage
bell." banta Claus, according to old
time custom, made his appearance and
introduced himself by saying: "This
it the tree that I was to till but I aee
you've done it with an honest, hearty
will." After some further remarks,
showing him to be of a decided poetic
al turn, he appointed A. C. Snedeker,
the teacher, YVindheld Swan, and Al
bert Eikenbary to distribute the gifts,
looked at his massive gold(?) watch,
and made his exit, premising to re
turn every year as often as Christmas
The presents were numerous and
handsome, amounting in value to over
two hundied dollars. A fine silver
watch and chain, beautiful albums,
handsome books, costly jewelry ; with
jumping jacks, whistles, sleds, candy
and all the etceteras caused the hearts
of the recipients to beat fast with joy,
whilst the teacher, parents and pat
rons of the school realized, to its lull
extent, the truth of the saying: "It is
more blessed to give than to receive."
After the distribution of the presents
appropriate speeches were made by W.
B. Bates, Henry Wolfe and A. C. Sne
deker when the crowd wended their
way homeward satisfied that the
school, which, under the efficient man
agement of A. C. Snedeker, had attain
ed a state of perfection hitherto un
known, had received a fresh impetus,
and would continue to increase in in
terest and usefulness.
Mr. Snedeker is highly recommend
ed as a teacher and certainly seems to
have the true interests of the children
at heart. Ed.
The Xationalj Butter, Cheese and
Egg Association has been in conven
tion this week at Cedar Kapids, la.
The object of the convention is to col
lect and disseminate useful knowl
edgo among American dairymen.
President Belknap in his address re
marked: -It is within the remembranco of
some of the delegates here when Chau
tauqua county, N. Y., furnished the
seaboard markets with Western but
ter. Later on Ohi butter appeared
in the markets, and, for a time, the
Ohio Reserve furnished the best qual
ity of Western butter. It was a lit
tle light colored, light salted and not
very close made, but, on the whole,
it filled, in a general way, the place
in the market now occupied by our
present Western dairy-packed butter.
At that time the people in the newly
settled portions of the State packed
their butter in second-hand salt bar
rels and in sugar barrels containing
225 pounds each to 400 pounds. 1
packing this butter an unsuccessful
attempt was made to pack with refer
ence to color, saltness and quality, but
it was generally left to incompetent,
hands, and the work wa3 so imper
fectly done as to be of little advantage
to either seller or buyer. Illinois soon
followed Ohio. In the latter State,
the improvement was more rapid than
in the former, for the art of manufac
turing had become better and more
generally understood. Following in
quick succession came Wisconsin and
Iowa. The latter state has increased
the quantity and improved thequali-i
ry of her product mora rapidly than1
any of the states previously named, j
She is taking a front rank in the mar
kets of the seaboard, especially in the
Boston market, which is classed
among the markets of this country
as one of the most critical. Pennsyl
vania is dow sharply contesting with
Illinois and Iowa for the precedence
in New York markets, and quotations
indicate thae they are well matched.
Butter making is an art. Those who
bestow the most care and labor en it
receive the highest prices. The other i
day Mr. John Stout showed u through '
the great commission house at lt;2
Chambers street, New, York. In an.
tttarease rclrrtxT ve tfawtrosotl
butter packed away in tubs kegs and
barrels. There are all grades, and the
best is double that of the poorest. The
products of a few of the dairy farms
of Illinois and Iowa are in as much
demand by choice livers ;t9 the Gnest
articles turned out by the select dairy
men of New York, Pennsylvania, and
New England. This shows that tlie
art is being closely studied and prac
ticed by painstaking farmers in the
West. A few years ago the butter of
the western states was execrated by
the epicure of the east. Usually, tho
best butter is made in the month of
September. The weather is cooler
then and the grass richer than in June,
July and August. This year the
drought ruled September, consequent
ly October butter brings the highest
prices. If butter is well made and
well packed, and kept cool, it will re
main sweet for two years. The ex
change of ideas in the convention at
Cedar Rapids cannot do otherwise
than advance the dairy interests of the
United States. T. F. & F.
Serious Riot in North Carolina.
THE FIRST NEWS OF THE TROVBLE.
Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean.
New York, Dec. 29. The Herald
has tha following special from Raleigh
N. C; "The prevailing peace and
quiet of the State was rudely disturb
ed by news received to-day of a great
riot in progress at Plymouth, in the
northern part of the state- This
morning the following telegram from
Mayor Gaylord, of Plymouth, was re
ceived at the Executive Department
here. 'There is an unprecedented
riot in this town, and I am unable to
suppress it by the civil authority of
this county. I earnestly appeal to
you to order several military com
panies to be here at the earliest time
possible to suppress it. There are now
three hundred negroes here, all armed
with guns. They are defying the law
all round.' Governor Jarvis being at
Greenville in the western part of the
state, the telegram was sent to him at
once. Later a telegram was received
from Governor Jarvis, stating that he
had ordered Lieutenant Colonel John
W. Colton, of the first regiment, and
two infantry companies of the North
Carolina State Guard to Plymouth. A
telegram was also received, tendering
the services of the Pasquotank Ri4les,
of Elizabeth City, to quell the' riot. A
special dispatch received to-night from
a well-informed and reliable gentle
man of Edenton,, which town is about
twenty miles from Plymouth, gives
some details of the riot and its cause.
On Saturday morning, the 24th inst.,
3everal negroes at Plymouth were
fighting among themselves. This a
constable tried to stop, but was resist

TheUss of Short Words.
Horatio S -ymoar dwells t!ms -l lone
ly on the use of short words.
WTe must not on'y think in wor.l.i, !m'
we must also tr to use tho be.st word-,
and those which in speech will put what
is in your mind into the minds of oth
er.''. This is the rreat art which those
must gnin who wish to teac'i in the
school, the e urch, :it tho bar or through
the press. To do this in tho rL'ht way
they should u-e the short words wine
we learn in early life, and which have
the s:ime sense to nil classes f men.
The English of our Bible is good. Now
ami then some long words are found,
and they always hurt the verse in whic'i
3011 lind them. Take that whic'i .t-:iys,
"O, ye generation of vipers, who h:itl
warned you to flee from the wrath to
come?" There i3 one long word v. hie
should not bo iu it, namoly "jrei:er:i
tion." In the old version the o'd wor I
"brood" is used. Read the verse aniii
with this term, and you feel its full
force. 4 O ye vipers brood, who ha h
warned you to flee from tho wrath t
come?" Crime sometimes does not lo ik
like crime when it is set beforo us in
t'ie many folds of a long word. When
a man iteals and we call it "defalca
tion," we are at a loss to kuow if it is a
blunder or a crime. If he does not tell
the truth, and wo are told that it is a
case of "prevarication'" it takes ns
some time to know just what we should
thiuk of it. No m:vn will ever cheat
himself inio wronsr-dning, nor will he
be at a loss to judge of others, if he
thinks and speaks ofacts in clear, crfop
terms. It is a good rule, if one is at a
loss to know if an act is right or wron.',

A Favorite Trick.
One of Vivier's favorite performances:
Havina: marked down his prey, nn eld
erly citizen who ha3 ordered a glass of
beer, and is preparing to assimilate
it on the asphalt in front of a cafe.
Vivier approaches and salutes him pro
foundly, then, with mingled volubil
ity and brusqueness, thus addresses'
"Monsieur, I am one of the inspect
ors of the new department of ahemical
analysis, established for the purpose of
detecting adulteration in articles of
daily consumption. I have been de
tailed to the subject of beer. My face
being known to the proprietors of tha
establishment, if I were to order any
thing they might take tho alarm and
shave mejquite a different article, and
thus baffle mo. Permit me, therefore,
to taste your beer.
The stupefied victim offers no resist
ance and Vivier drains the glass at a
draught, and sets it down remarking:
Excelleqt! excellen;! You can drink
that beer with impunity! I thank j-ou in
the name of science and tho municipal
ity ; for your unseHsh co-operation.
Good afternoon! Waiter, another b.cr
for this gentleman!" and vanishes.

sometime you will hear about the

Tades entirely out at the White House.
There everything moves quietly and
with dignity. President Arthur, by
his policy of not disturbing the ap
pointees of President Garutld, and by
making appointments in contemplation
by the latter.has shown that he does not
intend to encourage strife in the par
ty. You hear nothing o.' stalwarts
and half-breeds at the executive man
sion. Still, Mr. Arthur is-a man who
believes in being true to bis friends,
and he believes a republican should bo

REPUBLICAN POLICY IN THE SOUTH?
Does it mean Mahonism in various
forms V" "Little in a general way can
be said about that. The southern
states have each got to be treated dif
ferently from the party stand-point.
Nearly every one requires a different
plan. This can be said of the demo

through the south. Slavery was the
keystone ot the party till it was abol

ually the party is going to pieces.
Debt questions and other issues are

which means the disfranchisement of
40,000 colored men, is a republican
state. Each of the southern .state3
has its local issues, and they are in

say it requiies a different policy in
