"YOU CANT DO IT. "
"When wo came to Omaha to intro-
dnco the DUKE OF DURHAM Ci
garette , some pcoplo said , "You can't
do it , "as so many others have tried
it and failed , and the tnxdo arc dis
gusted , etc. Wo never had any doubt
that the DUKE OF DURHAM Cigarette -
otto would meet with popular _ favor
and sell rapidly , knowing it to bo
made of the BEST North Carolina
Tobacco , wrapped with the BE3T rico
paper , and ABSOLUTELY frco of
DRUGS. You see , wo give consumers
credit for knowing n good thing when
they have tried it , and then wo
thought low comfortable the fooling I
( when enjoying a leisure smoke ) TO
KNOW that you nro not absorbing
Wo are mutually interested in this
matter of pure Cigarettes. If the
DUKE OP DURHAM are the PUR
EST nnd BEST , of cpurso , you will
continue to use them ; if not , you
wont. So wo concluded > to call your
attention to them through the news
papers and toll you frankly all about
them , and induce you , to try them and
then let them speak for themselves.
Wo know these are pleased who have
tried them , as they continue to buy
them , and wo are getting most flattering -
ing reports from dealers as well as con
sumers. Wo promised more reports
from dealers yesterday , but wo mot
with one who cooled our ardor tem
porarily. Guess itwill bo no harm to
toll what ho said , but wo withhold his
name , street and number.
, 'Haven't got them ; don't want
them , and shall not keep thorn. Can
buy and Cigarettes for
50c per 1,000 loss and Cigarettes
for $1 per 1,000 loss than the DUKE ,
and I can retail them at same price of
the Duko. "
Well , wo have somewhat recovered ,
and since we have thought the matter
over don't feel much worried , as ho
doesn't sellmanyand | his limited sales
will not affect us much. Wo appre
hend that it's because ho does not
keep tho'bcatbut instead tries to palm
off an inferior article at same price ,
that his trade is so small. With this
exception , wo find raoet of thu trade
disposed to handle the DUKE OF
DURHAM Cigarettes and Tobacco
because they ARE the BEST and
PUREST on the market.
Consumer , if you have not tried
them yet'you should drop" in "the
first store and buy a package.

.WASHINGTON , .December 29. Gui
teau , aftpr examining the dock ,
showed satisfaction that no' < ono was
behind and no one .near him except
officers and counsel. Ho said :
"Coming up in the van from the
prison this morning , I noticed that the
isual policemen were withdrawn.
tfow I want to say emphatically that
f I was turned loose to-morrow I can
am in the custody of this court and
ts officers they are bound to take care
of me. There is a great deal more
danger of my being'shot coming from
; ho prison than anywhere else and I
ask for. the usual number of officers
'or myprotection. . The cranks are
not all dead yet , thoughthoy are dying
rapidly. [ Laughter ] I sot fifty lot-
tera yesterday , most of them
irom sympathizing people wantIng -
Ing my autograph and hoping
For my acquittal , but on6 crank is all
bhat la necessary to do the business.
I am always quiet when not abused.
I have the record of being a perfect
gentleman. They think I am a great
man and a good fellow , vbut when I
come into court I am abAcd and vilh-
Ccd. No human being can stand it
and I will defend myself. ?
Dr. Callonder was recallpd.
Guitoau said if the marshal did not
do his duty some crank would shoot
him. Ho did not believe he would
hit him , but might hit some person
else and asked that some- other mar
shal bo appointed. ' - ,
Corkhill replied that ho believed
the people of th'e country would allow
the trial to proceed to n , legitimate
end. > * ,1
Guiteau answered that he would bo
all right if there were no cranks about.
Scovillo submitted a mntion that
on account of the length 6k the trial
the jurors be permitted to go to their
houses and reliance , bo , , placed upon
| their honor. jThet court 'decided to
take the matter into consideration.
' Scoville. began to read a letter by
Guitoau toSenator Cameron , written
ten days ago , in order to get the
.views of tha , witness whether ( rnich let-
OS could bVwnttenly ' inVper-
t , j/fr , ' 5-r *
Guiteau became furiousop ,
simply asked Senator Cameron to lend
hima , hundred" dollors 'and gave the
letter to his brother John , who be
trayed him and gave it to Scovillo.
Ho said his brother was a perfect nui
sance and that between them there
was no fraternal feeling and had been
none for years. He said : "I had
always associated with high-toned
gentlemen in theology like Moody and
Pentecost ; in politics , like Grant and
Conkling ; " but that his relations wore
crowding into the case to get notorie
ty. Ho repudiated the entire crow
and wanted them all , including Sco
villo , to got out. The following is the
letter which was read :
"DEAH SKN. TOU I am on trial for
my life , and I need money. I am a
stalwart of the stalwarts , and so
are you. You think a great deal of
General Arthur , and so do I. My
inspiration made him president , and
I am going to ask you to lend mo five
hundred dollars. If I got out of this
I will return it. If not , charge it to
and very cordially ,
( Signed ) "GUITEAU. "
Witness said the letter was consist
ent with a good many of Guitcau's
acts and utterances and previous life ,
and like his importunities to many ,
was no indication of unsoundness of
Guiteau again abused Scovillo , and
Corkhill said if ho continued with
interruptions , he would move to have
the dock placed in another part of the
Scovillo said petulantly ho could
move him in his cell if ho pleased.
The next witness was Dr. Walter
Kempster , superintendent of the in
sane asylum at Winnobago , Wis. His
evidence was confined to comparison
of craniums of various important
people with that of Guitoau , as indi
cating that malformation is not evi
dence of insanity. Bob Ingersoll's
chart showed a big bulge on ono side ,
and Guitcau's showed that Ingersoll
and he were both badly cranked.
Witness said the difference between
an ordinary insane delusion
and a belief in special di
vine commands was tliat the
approach of the former WM slow
and gradual , while the latter was
almost instantaneous as was the act.
The energy , force and rapidity with
which people acted undei the hitter
delusion was almost beyond descrip
tion. The claim that act of allowed
inspiration sprang from a political
situation was the best evidence the
actor could furnish that ho was not
sane. The expression , divine pressure
sure , the witness had never heard be
fore applied to insane delusion. Wit
ness said the hypothetical questions
described a sane man ,
After recess , Guiteau asked for pen
and paper to answer his letters in
court ; which was granted.
The examination of Dr. Kimp&ter
was continued , Ho said Guiteau told
him in jail that his inspiration to re
move Garfield was somewhat the same
as that which prompted him to join
the Oneida community , start the
Theocrat , and write the truth , only
that it came on more slowly and that
when he shot Garfield ho was legally
nsano and the inspiration was
prompted by articles in the news-
sapors denouncing the president , and
; hat if ho could got the jury to believe
10 WM acting under inspiration when
10 fired the , shot they would relieve
lim of the responsibility. Witness
did not agree with Spitzka that Gui
toau had a malformed head , Thought
10 had n well-shaped head of fine size }
: hcro was nothing unusual in .the ex
pression of his fnco. I think Guitoau
las been feigning insanity. When
jooplo came on the stand with whom
10 has boon acquainted ho greets thorn
M good follows , and when their tcsti-
nony goes against him ho abuses
; hom. The prisoner in my opinion
s unsuccessfully endeavoring to simu
. Guitoau said : "I sue by my letters
; hat the people are beginning to ad-
ross mo as Lion. Charles Guitcau.
I have a letter from a gentleman who
says ho has thirty-eight instances of
specific 1 inspirations from the Bible in
which Almighty God directed people
; o < kill other pcoplo , and ho said he
can find more. I hnvo also a letter
'rom a doctor in Chicago who says a
ady cousin is expecting a 'baby , and
if it is a boy she intends to call him
juitcnu rather than Garfiold. [ Laugh
Reed cross-oxaminod the witness at
.ongth , and repeatedly trod on the
corn of Porter , who accused him of
deliberately and repeatedly misrepre
senting the statement , of Dr. Kemp-
itor in order to got ati admission that
10 believed in moral insanity. There
was quite a scone hero. Porter de
claimed in tragical fashion , and the
prisoner mocked him over and ever
again , much to the annoyance of the
district attorney. The court had at last
M interfere , and direct the case
to proceed Forcer , objected to almost
every question put and the prisoner at
last shouted excitedly , when the judge
said the case should got to the jury
some time "If you are getting tired ,
Porter , withdraw the indictment and
lot us go home. I am tired of it.
'Laughter. ] You know you have no
: aso and that's the reason you are so
[ ussy this afternoon. "
The cross-examination of the wit
ness was not finished when court ad
journed until to-morrow morning.
Dr. Gray , superintendent of the
state lunatic asylum of Now York ,
will bo examined to-morrow , and his
evidence will close the government's
cue.In answer to inquiry regarding the
order of closing , Corkhill said : "Mr.
Davidgo will make the opening
speech for the government , then I
suppose Mr. Scovillo will follow ; I
don't know whether Mr. Rood will
speak or not ; Judge Porter will then
close the case. I don't expect to
speak unless the question of jurisdic
tion is raised , on which I am prepared
to say something. That question was
thought to bo a trroat question at
first , but it seems to bo lost sight of
Mr. Reed received a letter to-day
from Jacksonville , saying : "Dr.
McFjirland has treated members of
Iho Quitenu family ; i * a thorough ex"
pert ; ' ' behoves him insane. 'Youfro-
member him in the Hopps'caso. Sub
poena him horo. " Reed will endeavor

lishes in response to the recent at
tacks made upon Cyrus W. Field ,
Jay Gould , Russell Sago and others ;
the opinions of Ex-Judge Dillon ,
David Dudley Field , Ed win" R. Bacon ,
Alexander & Green , Ex-Judge Coin-
stock , Judge Westbrook , .Judge
Truax , Judge Blatchford , Judge
Davis , Judpe Lawrence , Judge
Daniel , Judge Brady , et al. , to the
effect that the recent negotiation in
regard to the elevated railway is en
dorsed by Messrs. Alexander &
Green. The opinion of Ex-.Judgo
Dillon is very exhaustive and covers
all points presented within the case.
Ho supports in every respect the ac
tion taken as of right and law. Edi
torially , The Mail and Express say
they have taken pains to procure these
opinions in order that final answer
might bo made to the publications of
disappointed stock speculators. At
the same time , the opinion is that
matters were strictly in accordance
with the letter and spirit of the laws
both special and general. The va
rious authorities quoted refer
to the statutes in support
of the arguments made and
decision rendered , and concur in the
the decision that the action taken in
oorcordanco therewith was because
of the direction of the state statutes.
The opinion of Ex-Judge ( Cotnstock
is endorsed by Hon. W. Swayne , and
the opinions from Field and Bacon , ol
this nature , are of private rather than
public interest. Mr. Field in person
declines to be
interviewed or express
any opinion regarding the affair , as
does also Mr. Gould.

children's dresses , ladies' wrappers ,
skirts , parasols , kid gloves with from
.hrco to eight buttons , silk stockings ,

and shawls , corsets , napkins ,

principally ship chandlers , cotton
merchants , shipping mon , junk deal
ers , eligible young men with domestic
bliss in prospect , tea dealers , fruit

were for the most part ornamental ,
occasionally giving an opinion as to

of which the auctioneer expressed a

hemstitched handkerchiefs'wore dis
posed of i for less \ than cost. A lot of
point and Limerick lace mounchoirs
brought from 82.76 to 83 60 ; lace
collars of fine workmanship were sac
rificed at from 81 to 87 ; a black lace
shawl brought 825 ; lace caps , aprons
and , wristlets were sacrificed ; a pair
of elegant black silk corsets realized
§ 4.50 , a sum greatly under their real
value ; 83.60 per pair was the valua
tion placed upon live pairs of fine silk
stockings ; 81.35 per pair was
paid for twenty-two pairs of
ladies' throe-button kid gloves ;
two lots of four-button gloves
brought 81.25 and 81.37 respective
ly , and six pairs of gentlemen's qlovo.s
were cnptutod for 81 per pair. The
first real buzof excitement occurred
when Mr. Burdett gingerly hold up a
maroon velvet dross trimmed with
Eoint lace , a beautiful garment , which
ad boon appraised At 8 < I50 , plus the
duty of GO per cent One of the lady
spectators , who had boon feating her

many it was knocked down for 8175
to Mr. Martin Hcrnln , a bachelor
lor Hhip-chundler , of South

the hope that it would match the
prospective Mrs. Hernia's face when
her lawful lord confronted her after
ho had spent a night with his old
companions. A black satin dress ,
heavily trimmed with bead passemen
terie and Mechlin lace , with waist to
match and adjustable train , were pur
chased by Air. Lawrence for 8120.
The appraised valuation wns 8300 ,
with the addition of 00 per cent , duty ;
a sacquo of the same workmanship
brought 850 , and a similarly made
dolman was Bold for 834 , less than
half its alleged value.

of the dress maker's art. An invol
untary "Oh , tny , isn't it too

from the lips of the ladies ,
and the homey-handed men crowded
each other to catch a glimpse of its
immaculate sheen. Mr , Leopold's
