\ OUR REASONS.
We have often been asked why wo
commenced the manufacture of Citjar-
cttis. Because our attention had
bee called to the fact by numerous
articles written by medical and scien
tific mon.that oniumjmd other drugs
were being largely used in Cigarettes ,
and that the papot used for wrapping
was made from the filthy scrapings of
ragpickers , bleached with lime and
other substances , which seriously af
fected the membranes ot the throat
and nose , and wore the prime cause of
the throat and nasal troubles which
followed cigarette smoking , and they
prophesied incalculable damage to
health unless these troubles could bo
Feeling that the time was ripe fdr ,
and that the trade would appreciate ,
a perfectly pure cigarette , and know
ing the aavantaues wo enjoyed of securing -
curing the very finest packings of the
crops ( our factory being located in
Durham and the Dukes having been
planters , handlers and manufacturers
of tobacco all their lives , and ono of
them being on the market every day ) ,
wo concluded to add this now depart
ment to our already extensive smok
ing tobacco trade , and raako only a
pure Cigarette , free of all drugs ,
wrapped with the Gnost imported
French rico paper , upon the merit of
which wo would stake our reputation.
Such on article is the DUKE OF
DURHAM Cigarette , and wo intend
to' keep it so. llico paper is consid
ered less injurious than anything that
can bo used for wrapping Cigarettes ;
but as it is very expensive all do not
use it who claim to.
The following is an exact copy of a
letter , now in our possession , from
ono of the largest importers of rico
paper in the United States , through
whom we import the rico paper for
the Duke of Durham Citmrottes :

the most horrible crimes of butchery
and bloodshed on record took place
this morning in Forty-eighth street.
A Bohemian carpenter battered his
wife's brains out with a largo carpen
ter's mallet and then cut his own
throat with a razor , slashed his face
and body , and afterward hung him *
About 10 o'clock this .morning1 o
young Gorman woman , accompanied
by another woman , entered the police
station and asked that the sick wagon
bo sent to 'ISO East Forty-eighth
street to take her husband to the hos
pital. "Wo have no food nor money ,
or moans of any kind to procure a
doctor , and wo are starving for want
of something to cat , " she said. She'
further etatod that her husband , Wen-
zor Felix , a carpenter , two months
ago , while at work on a now building ,
had fallen to the street and was severe
ly injured. Ho was removed to a hos
pital where ho remained a couple of 1
days till enabled to return homo.
Since then ho had been ill and unable
to work and they had no means of
Half an hour later a wagon was
sent and the driver knocked at the
door. There was no response , Ho
knocked louder and louder , but re
ceived no answer. Ho accosted a , po
liceman and the latter placed his
shoulder to the door and forced
it open. Such a sight at that which
picsontod itself neither had over soon
nor dreamed of. Lying across the
miserable ) apartment was the form of
the woman covered with blood , her
head ono mass of clottud gore. Beside -
side her lay a large , heavy wooden
inallot , weighing probably 16 pounds ,
covered with blood. The husband , a
youthful looking man , with a pale
and ghastly face , was dangling from
the stove-pipe , and suspended by a
clothes-lino , with his feet just
touching the floor. His throat was
cut from ear to oar , and blood
covered the clothing and dripped
to the iloor. Here a pool of blood
had formed that reached another near
his wife , and together they joined into
a stream that spread over the apart
ment. Close to the hanging man , on
a small table ; lay a razor , bloody and
evidently used in cutting the throat
of the man. Everything in the apart
ment was strewn about , showing a
desperate struggle had taken place ,
and that the woman had not died un
til many blows had beer struck. There
were no witnesses to the terrible deed.
The bodies wcro almost cold when the
policeman felt to ascertain if a spark
of 2u'fo remained. The husband
was cut clown and laid beside his vic
tim. The building is occupied by
several families , thoground iloor being
used as a grocery. The apartment is
scarcely 8x7 , with low ceilings and
bad ventilation. The furniture con
sisted of a broken , dilapitatud bed

of broken chairs , a few ornaments ,

Just prior to the removal of the
corpses to the morgue a hooded
woman with a shawl almost
concealing her features , passed up to
the door of the room where the dead
lay. It was the murderer's sister. .Tho
sister stated that the dead couple had
been in this country but six months ,
being natives of Taus , in Bohomiu.
They had been married nine months.
They came h ro with another brother
and sister. They did not live happily
together after their arrival in this
country , and for sometime lately they
quarreled and fought regularly. Pov
erty seemed to have been the cause of
their troubles , and frequently there
was not a morsel of food in the house.

WASIIINOTON , D. C. , December 11) ) .
The trial was adjourned till Wod-
, ncsday because of the death yester
day of the wife of Juror 11 ebbs. Court
opened as usual , with counsel , judge
and prisoner all in their places. Hobbs
was crying convulsively. People were
very anxious to BOO Guiteau with a
beardless face and ho turned in all di
rections to give them an opportunity.
The general impression is that the
shaving improves O nil can's counten
ance , removing a curtain wildncss of
expression and presenting him with n
face like a keen alert clergyman.
Clark Mills , the celebrated sculptor ,
visited the jailSaturday , accompanied
by his son Thomas , the young sculp
tor , and made a lifo mask or plaster
matrix of the assassin from which a
plaster cast will bo made. The ar
tists were accompanied by John W ,
Guiteau , brother of the iwsasiin. He
was in his cell looking over the morn
ing papers when they arrived and on
being informed of the desire of the
artists readily consented. He was
conducted to his largo cell , the one
which ho terms his p.irlor , and pro-
.parations made to begin work. Mr.
Mills suggested that Guituau's board
should bo shaved oil' boo.uiae a much
bettor representation of the features
and general shape of the face could bo
made in that way. To this ho at
first demurred , saying ho did not like
to part with his bo < ird , anjj that ho
did not appear so well without it. Ho
' ' 'Ar.Ucularly objected because , as ho
aaicl ; it would make his nose look so
much lunger. To this Mr. Mills sug
gested that a largo nose is a sign of
strength of character , whereupon
Guitoau , with little further hesitation ,
consented. The jail barber being ab
sent , a colored prisoner was brought
down and his beard was soon oft' His
hair being quite short it was not cut
closer. A closely fitting kknit skull
cap of cotton moistened was put on
his head , covering all of
his hair and coming down across
the .forehead. As this dried
it drew closer to the head and in a
few moments fitted it as tightly OB the
scalp itself , showing the precise shape
of the skull , showing every promi
nence or lack. This was then cover
ed with a coating of plaster ot paris ,
prepared for the purpose , which in a
few moments had sot. Another prep
aration of plaster was then made use
of , in taking a matrix or mold of the
feature1) ) . It was so tempered that it
could bo placed on the skin witnout
injury to it. It was spread on his
face an inch thick , leaving the nos
trils open. After it had sot , the whole
mold was removed. The interior
was found to bo a perfect
representation of the face and head ,
showing every peculiarity of the skull
and features. This will be used aa a
mold in which to coat the head and
features for a plaster bust of the sub
ject. The removal of Guireau's beard
makes quito a change in his personal
looks , rather improving his looks.
Ho has a firm , rather broad chin , lips
rather thick and a heavy jaw bono.

PANAMA , December 8 , Dates to
the Itith of November from Lima state
that the reported visit of the Alaska
to Mollonuo proved to have bcon
founded on facts. She called at that
port and landed the brother of Oarcin
CaUleron , > ho is said to have boon the
bearer of funds and instructions to-
the leaders of the revolution against
I'iurola. There seems to have bcon
some truth in this rumor , as directly
after his arrival at that city troops
were inarched in the direction of
Ayacucho. the headquarters of Pic-
rola and his friends. At a
meeting hold in the homo of ,
Senor Garcia Caldorpn , Montero was
appointed vice president , and ho has
accepted this ollico under the con

The celebrated memorandum of
Gen. Hurlbtit has caused much ex
citement on the cast coast.
Camporo continues to create slight
alarm in the department of Tarapaca ,
but ho and his forces have aa yob
shown no inclination to attack the
nitrate deposits , where forces nro'sto-
tioned. The Monteros are doing aa
they like in many of the smaller
towns of the north , and
murder and robbery in very
froqnont on eovoral lines oi travel.
Two oflicors were murdered by no-
grocs at Canoto lately , simply because
they won white.
News from Bolivia proves that there
is little probability of the invasion of
Tarauaca , Camporo has 8,000 mon
under arms at Lopas , Potosi and Or-
uro , hoj > eing in the latter city with
5,000. A few weeks ago it is Haid ho
ordered two battalions to march to
the coast , when they at
once stacked arms and re
fused to move unless they received
their pay. The Bolivian public bo-
liuvo Camporo is more inclined to
suppress tuo Calderon party in the
south than to fight the Chileans.
Chilean rcconnoitoring parties have
pushed almost into the heart of Boli
via. Ono from Tocana captured a lot
of booty , driving it back with them.
Another party loft Tarapaciv and
pushed on to Lnbaya and Canuna and
other interior towns , said to bo occu
pied by Bolivian forces. Onlyacpuplo
of Montero bands were fallen in with ,
wliich disbanded after n faw shots.
Montero remains at Cajanearca ,
whence ho l.os been issuing procla
mations and fly sheets. Ho has as-
auiuud the title of vice-president , but
this appears to bo only a provisional
measure. In ono of Ins proclamations.
ho says to the populace : "You are
already aware that that his excellency ,
the American minister in Lima , has-
declared in the name of his govern
ment his resolution to interfere in the
arrangement of peace with Chili ,
without the cession of territory oc
any other conditions humiliating to
our country. "
These "honorable " "
poaco" and "no-
cossioiv of territory" cries which have
enabled the military leaders to plun
der the whole of the interior are los
ing their force , and all working Peru
vians,1 and those who have yet any
thing to lose , advocate the immediate
cession of Tarapaca. They say they
have reaped no advantage from it in
the past , and they can hope to reap
none in the future , burdened as it is
with Peruvian and Chilean debts , and
that the sooner it is gotten rid of and
the Chileans out of the country the
bettor they will bo satisfied.
Montero lias written to General
Hurlbut and published under date of
October 23 , the following exlarordi-
nary letter : "In the light of the fa
vorable direction in which , owing to
the oflicacions meditation of your
government , cvonts have taken with
respect to the international question
pending between my country and
Chili , and especially of the dictinct
answer as to the high intentions of tho-
Washington cabinet given by your excellency -
colloncy to the notables of the capitol -
tel , I have determined to direct my
proceedings toward unification of the
country in accordance with the consti
tution of I860. This conduct is in
perfect harmony and is corollary of
the patriotic programme I have fol
lowed during the present war. When
Piorolia assumed power , on December
bor 21 , 1879 , I , who commanded in the *
south the only army wo havc-
poBBOBsod , nt once recognized him
without debating his rights , in order
to avoid the evils attendant on divi
sion in front of the enemy , and this
I did , although the dictatorship was ;
opposed to my republican sentiments ,
and that I possessed abundant ele
ments with which to subjugate that
power. Thcso sainn motives induced
mo , after January 1C , to accept the
oflico of organizing the north against
the invader , and in this mission I
have used every patriotic endeavor to
succeed , until now I am surrounded
by what is actually necessary to' defend -
fond the territory under my command1
to-day. That it is necessary wo should
unite and in law and order to bring :
about an honorable solution of the *
question and the supreme rule of my
actions being the salvation of my
country , your excellency can count on
my not being an obstacle in the way
of obtaining that sacred object , to ob
tain which I would hesitate at
no sacrifice , by concluding that
it is my duty to remit to
your excellency and through you to
the government of the United States
my sincere gratitude , as a soldier , .
patriot and democrat for the attitude-
you hiivo assumed prior to Huttlomont
of Peruvian questions on behalf of
perpetual peace and the equilibriun
of the country where the American
Union figures in the front line , tlmnlcs
to the wonderful prosperity it haa
reached in liborul opinions. "
