OUR REASONS.
We hnvo often been asked why wo
commenced the manufacture of Cigar-
ottos. Because our attention had
bocn called to the fact by numerous
articles written by medical and scien
tific men that opium and other drugs
were being largely used in Cigarettes ,
and that the paper 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
nnd nose , and were the prime cause of
the throat nnd nasal troubles which
followed cigarette smoking , nnd they
prophesied incalculable damage to
health unless these troubles could bo
overcome.
Feeling that the time was ripe for ,
nnd that the trade would appreciate ,
a perfectly pure cigarette , and know
ing the advantages wo enjoyed of se
curing the very finest pickings of the
crops ( our factory being locatml in
Durham and the Dukes 'having been
planters , handlers and manufacturers
of tobacco all their lives , nnd one of
them being on Hio market every day ) ,
wo concluded to add this now depart
ment to our already extensive smok
ing tobacco trndo , and make only a
pure Cigarette , free of all drugs ,
wrapped with the finest imported
French rico paper , upon the merit of
which wo would stake our reputation.
Such nn article is the DUKE OF
DURHAM Cigarette , nnd wo intend
to keep it so. Rico paper is consid
ered less injurious than anything that
can bo used for wrapping Cigarettes ;
but as it is very Mxpensivo all do not
use it who claim to.
The following is an exact copy of a
latter , now in our possession , from
ouo of the largest importers of rico
paper in the United States , through
whom wo import the rico paper for
the Duke of Durham Cigarettes :

AN IMPnUBABLE STOUT. *
WASHINGTON , December' 20. A
prominent republican and sagacious
politician makes the startling predic
tion that Blaine will bo the demo
cratic candidate for the presidency in
1884. He says President Arthur
will so manage affairs and administer
his oflico that no other republican
will stand a ghost of a chance in that
year , and Blaine , realizing this , will
seek the fulfillment of his life-long
ambition in the ranks of the demo
cratic party. The gontleinan referred
to as mnking this prediction has al-
vays boon friendly with Blaine and
docs not seem to think that in seek
ing the nomination at the hands of
the democrats , the ex-secretary would
bo guilty of anything meriting con
demnation , or oven sharp , averse
criticism.

appreciating the necessity of a reading
clerk whoso voice could bo heard in

leading republicans the propriety of
dccuring the services of Ncill S.
Brown , Into reading clerk of the
house This led to n short caucus of
republican senators this afternoon to
which the proposition was submitted.
Wliilo Mr. Brown's elocution was ad
mit ed , there was considerable
opposition to adding another

of . ) . Ii. Adams , the stationer , who
furnished considerable material on

to evidence taken by the commission
where his name was connected with

did not deny furnishing the goods at
the price named , but said they were
supplied on regular orders from the
department , in a regular business
way. Ho filled the orders as ho
would any others and never
inquired vhothor the department
needed them or not. Ho thought the
officers ci mpetont to judge of that
themselves.
Pitney will bo recalled to-morrow.

meeting , its object being to petition
the representatives in congress to
make efforts towards the liberation of
Irish-American citizens now suffering
imprisonment by authority of the
English government. Uov. Thomas
Martin was 'made chairman of the
meeting. Tho' following resolutions
wore adopted without dissent :
Whereas , Several citizens ol
the United States are at present and
have been for months past imprisoned
without trial or investigation by the
government of Great Britain in foul
dungeons , where , according to ro-
liublo statements relating to the pes
tilent and malaria breeding surround
ings , such imprisonment must of ne
cessity send those innocent men to
premature graves , as is the cmc : of M.
P. Boynton ; and
Whereas , We consider the arbit
rary power exercised by the liritiuh
government in the aforesaid arrcstsund
imprisonment a direct violation of the
right of all Americans and contrary to
the letter and spirit of international
laws and all precedent ; therefore bo it
Hi-solved , That we , American citi
zens of the Third Illinois congression
al district , speaking now solely as
Americans interested in maintaining
the dignity of our country , do hereby
declare our emphatic denial of tha
right by which the British govern
ment exercises the aforesaid power ,
and wo ii.dignanlly protest against
thcso arrests and the imprisonment
of the aforesaid American citr/ons by
the British government ns an outrage
upon human lights and liberty ,
deeming it furthermore an insult of
national character to ourselves , and
bo it further
Kcsolvod , That our representative
in congress , Hon. C. B. Farwoll , bo
hereby petitioned to secure the passage -
sago of ii resolution firmly insisting on
the immediate trial of our follow cit
izens now confined in British
prisons on the charges or alle
gations , if any , with which
they stAnd acused , and in the oyentof
that trial or investigation being de
nied them , it is the souse of this
meeting that the president of the
United States bo required to take
such action as will compel England to
open her prison doors , and let free
the American citizens whom she holds
in defiance of international law.

WASHINGTON , December 20. Tin
Guitoau trial will probably take i
more decided phrenological turn with
in the next few days. John W. Gui
tcau is naid to bo a firm believer it
the pcienco of bumps and depressions
and is anxious to have a cast of tin
aBsasuin's head produced in court and
its configuration descanted upon bj
prominent phrenologists. Tlio dis
trict attorney is receiving letters from
students in phrenology and othon
professing knowledge about the shape
of the head as a dotermiim-
tivo of human character. OIK
man writcn to Colonel Corkhill
that his head had been frcquontlj
measured and was found to bo chang
ing in form every year. The priso
ner brother called upon Sculptoi
Mills to-day and requested to aeo the
cast of Guitcau's ' head , but the rcquesl
was refused an the ground that it wat
not ready for exhibition. The casl
taken for a photographer , who thinki
it will make an attractive feature ii
a reception room. It is understood
that Clark Mills and son will bo Hub
poitiaed by the defense to bring the
cast into court and bo examined as t <
tlio points of difference with the headi
of sound mind and large attain
mcnts , as Mills and his sot
both profess faith in phrenology
strengthened by the practice of thei
art. A reporter called to-day to gel
tiioir views on this phuso of the case
Mills 8r. was not found , but his soi
talked freely on the subject , doclar
\n\e \ \ that ho hold precisely the sami
opinions as his father about Quitcau'i
head , although the Inttor could g <
more into details. "Speaking from i
physical point of view , " Haid Mills
"Guitoau is undoubtedly better look
ing with liis beard oil' . His bean
and moustache gave him n wild , hay
gavd appearance. "
'Does ho ROUIII to you moru Intelli
gent with a clean shaven facoC
'Yes , " was the reply. "Ho hai
rather a line chin and the oxpresaioi
of his mouth with firmly closed lips
which indicated great firmness , "
"Havo you made a special study o
phrenology' ( "
"No , but 1 have picked up a grea
deal by making cantsuf nianyuiflbron
pontons. I find the heiulu of
differ just as much as faces. I hav
never found two ho.iclB alike. Gui
toau'n head is full on ono side and fla
on the other. "
"What doc * that indicate ? "
"To my mind , it is an indication of
liseosed brain. "
"Havo yon scon hends of like un-
iVtMiuoss during your prac'ico J"
"Most of the heads in our colloc-
lou , * hilo of course of diircroni.
hapcs , are about as full on ono side
M on the other. Wo have not been
o got the heads of criminals to study
! mt part of the subject. Guitoau'a
ead is L'JlA inches in circumference ,
ly father regards it as a curiously
Impod head. D.miel Webster's head
leosurod U5J inches. Notwithstaud-
ig this difference , Guitcau's solf-cs-
join and firnniuss are as largo aa
liown in Webster's head. "
"Does the phrenological appearance
f the assassin's head indiciito popscv
ion of much intellect ? "
"It shows in my opinion that ho
OSHOSSCS a great deal of low cunning ,
lis Bcori'tivoiioss is iniinpnne , but lua
aiitiou is small. His vilativunosn or
> vo of live is also large. "
"What particular bump or series of
umrs , indicate insanity to your
"First , Rclf-esteem and firmness ,
'heso tw t organs predominate. Ilia
elf-esteem is so immense that it
lakes him believe that he is really a
reater or mere important person thane
o is. Ml the advice and talk in the
rorld would not convince him to the
ontrary , His firmness makes him
eon to his opinion. "
'
"But self-e'steem and fmmiesn do
ot necessarily constitute insanity t'1
"Oh , no , but when a man has morn
mn his share it makes him conceited
ml such generally makes unumica
trough life unless ho has a largo front
ead. It is no good "reasoning with
licit a man. Tholarge reasoning powers
f Daniel Webster for inntnnco , would
ountoract the effects of largo self-
steom and firmness , whereas the in-
ollectual development of Guitcau ia
iot sufficient to counterbalance them. "
"Then his largo self-esteem and
irmnoss , taken in connection with bio
mall intellectual developments , is in-
licativo of Guitoau s insanity } "
"I don't think , speaking exactly ,
hat they indicate insanity. They
rather indicate conceit. Hut still
hero is something odd about him. I
lon't ' know what it is , and would not
iay whether ho is sane or insane. "
"What are the moru prominent or
gans on the flat side of the head I"
"Yitativcnoss is full on both sides ,
conscientiousness is flat ami small ,
ml caution is small ; the flatness is
nero towards the top than the side of
ho head. The first thing noticed
when wo entered the cell to take the
cast was the wild , staring look in his
oycs. His conversation , however ,
was as rational as that of anybody. "
"Do you find in your practice that
phrenological diagnosis of men
agrees with their character i"
"As a general tiling I do. "
"How about Guitoan's veneration i"
"It m about the average , but it
would have no effect on his character ,
owing , as I said , to the great pre
dominance of firmness and self es-
; oom. "
Mr. Mills said that thorp was no in
tention of making a cost in bronze of
the head. Neither himself or father
wished to figure in the trial , but of
course they would have to go if sup-
; xunaod. The measurement of the
issassin's head was taken with an in
strument made especially for that
purpose. Concontrativonoss , 6 ; in-
