O OAS fU JONES, Editor t PwprtoW
KniRiD thb Post-otfics At Chahlttb,
N C., AS 8sWOB"D-CLAfl8 MATTES. 1
SUNPAY, JAN. 15, 1882.
: 1NTEUEST1NG NKW8.
We publish tft-day an iirteresting let
ter from our Washington correspon
dent. If the information in reference
to Col. Johnston and Mr. Price be well
founded, the probabilities are that we
will have some lively times in this and
the 7th district in the next Congression
There were those who attributed
ulterior aspirations to these gentlemen
in the active part they took in the anti
prohibition canvass, and it would seem
from the statement of our correspon
dent that they were not far wrong.
These gentlemen are both ambitious,
and perhaps they feel at liberty to
strike out on a new path and play the
independent rule since they led the vic
torious ranks in the canvass last sum
mer. It does not follow as a conse
quence that they, should do this, but it
places them in a position to do so, if
they see fit, with a seeming justifica
tion. But whether either of these gen
tlemen aspires to the leadership of the
independent movement in the State,
which has been hinted at by Republi
can managers, remains to be seen. We
hardly think that either of them will
aspire to a wider range than his own
district, and that if a leader, as they
call it, for the independent movement
be found he will be known by another
Our fellow-townsman may have Sen
atorial aspirations in the event the in
dependent movement wins and a legis
lature of that hue and cast be elected,
and may not be averse to standing in
Ransom's shoes, but it must be remem
bered that Dr. Mott has a weakness of
that kind himself, and that the Repub
licans in thi3 coalition don't propose to
give the large-sized honors and emolu
ments to the new recruits, whom they
' can get along without but who can't
get along without them. The Republi
cans are perfectly willing to splice, but
they want to engineer the job, and do
the cutting and parceling out when the
cheese is divided. We don't think it
among the probabilities that Charlotte
is to bo honored with two United
States Senators; in fact, under the cir
cumstances, we shall be very well con
tent with one.

remarked a stalwart Democrat, in the
National Hotel lobby the other night to
vour correspondent, as JNonn Carolina
IU.OOD IX IUS EYE.
We clip the following paragraph
from the Raleigh News and Observer
"We yesterday met with an attorney
of Mr. W. J. Best, who showed us a
telegram from him relative to there
cent editorial in The Charlotte Ob
server. Mr. Best declares that the
statements are all untrue, and he evi
dently has blood in his eye for some
body. He directs his attorneys to ex
amine the law, preparatory to institu
ting proceedings, etc., etc.
In reference to this The Observer
has simply to say that it is not in the
least alarmed at Mr. Best's indignation,
nor threats of proceedings, etc., etc.
What it published it published on what
it supposed to be good authority, and it
as promptly gave Mr. Best and his syn
dicate the benefit of the contradiction
of the report as published by the Golds
boro Messenger and Raleigh News and
Observer. The Observer has no de
sire to do Mr. Best injustice, ncr does it
hanker especially for libel suits, etc.,
etc., but if Mr. Best and the Boston
syndicate think they can silence The
Observer by getting bloody-eyed and
threatening court proceeding?, etc., etc.,
they are barking up the wrong tree,
During 1881 over four and three
quarter million J,ons of pig iron were
produced in this country, nearly four
hundred thousand tons imported, and
nearly five million nine hundred thou
sand tons consumed. The consump
tion for 1880 was about four million
tons of pig.

indeed seem to be at this time no doubt
but what the Democrats would carry
the State,, if indeed there ever was any.
And yet each train brings new arrivals
all bent upon getting as large a slice of
the spoils as possible. To-day R. M.
Norment, of Charlotte, W. K. William
son, A. T. McMillan, G. B. Everett, E.
R. Brink, of Wilmington, A. S. Sey
mour, Wm. Johnston, of Charlotte, and
ex-Speaker Chas. Price are noticed. It is
doubtful if ever so many people from
North Carolina were here before. The
portlv form of Mr. Jenkins can be seen
among the crowd. He fights shy of
strangers since his late unpleasant ex
perience. The other day a number of
the Republicans here decided to call on
the President in reference to the sub
ject of patronage in the State of North
Carolina. So a meeting was arranged
and the delegation met at the National
Hotel about 10 o'clock. There could be
seen as motley a crowd of Tar Heelers
as ever was seen on Pennsylvania Ave
nue. Headed by Jim Harris, the crowd
marched up to the White House; it
numbered about 30. Arriving at the
sacred portals the crowd was ushered
in only to find that the hallways were
filled with people who had gone with
out their breakfast in oraer to De on
hand in time. For some time the dele
gation waited only to see other delega
tions and new arrivals ushered into
the presence of the Chief Magistrate.
About 3 o'clock, however, word was re
ceived that the President would grant
an audience to the North Carolina del
egation. By this time their number
had considerably decreased, but those
that bad the patience to wait were re-
warded a fifteen minutes talk with
President Arthur. Jim Harris acted
as spokesman of the party. He asked,
it is understood, that all questions re
lating to patronage be referred to the
executive committee of the Republi
can party of the State. Without giving,
the delegation to understand
what he would do the President
said he would consider the
matter. It should be understood that
the better class of Republicans here
were noi of the delegation in question,
which was composed principally of ne
groes. Their reception is not looked
upon by North Carolinians here as yery
flattering. Col. Wm. Johnston, of
Charlotte, and ex-Speaker Chas. Price
fared better with the President when
they called. They were accorded an
interview without much trouble.
These gentlemen represented that they
were independents in politics and de
sired to see the Democracy of North
Carolina defeated in tbe next election.
As such they desired to receive the sup
port of the Administration in the fight
they proposed to make. After their re
turn both gentlemen spoke encour
agingly of their visit.
It is given out here that Col. John
ston will run as an anti-prohibition

islature on the anti-prohibition plat
form. Should he be successful and an
anti-prohibition majority turn up in the
Legislature, it is given out that he will
be a candidate for Senator against Sen
Mr. Price is on the same business
here and his visit to the White Hoilse
had the same object in view, viz: to
gain the aid of the administration. He
proposes to run against Mr. Armfield at
the next election, and is represented as
saying that he would not accept the
Democratic nomination for Congress
were it proffered him. In fact, there is
a little jealously between Col. John
ston and Mr. Price, as to which will be
the Mahone of North Carolina. In
Democratic circles here very little im
portance is attached to this so-called

Reed took position immediately! in
front of the jury waiting the signal
from tbe court to begin the openen
ing argument for the defense.
All eyes were turned in that direction
when Scoville arose and addressed the
court, stating that he desired to know
whether the prisoner would be allowed
to speak in his own defence. If tbe
court proposed to accord him that privi
lege both he (Scoville) and his associate
(Reed) woulL.prefer that he should
speak first. -
Guiteau: ?Iant to be beard pn that
question, "your honor; I want to close
the argument ior tne qeience. x wouiu
not trust my case in the hands of the
best lawyer jn America,"
judge cox: "i Bnouia ne lotn m a
capital case to deny any man a . pro
per opportunity to be heard, even
if he is represented by counsel, but in
this case it is safe to, assume that the
prisoner wilLabttse the privilege, as he
has done all through the trial, and that
what he would say would be highly im
proper to go before the . i ury. I shall
therefore deny him the privilege. As I
said yesterday, however, if his counsel
desire to read from his manuscript any
thing which they deem proper to be
laid before the jury they can do so."
Guiteau protested that he appeared
as his own counsel, and claimed the
right as an American citizen to be
heard in his own defence. Finding that
Judge Cox could not be moved he
shouted: "Let the record show that I
appear here as my own counsel, and
that I take exception to your ruling,
Judsre Cox. I shall appeal to the
American people and they will over
rule you and you will go down to fu
ture ages with a black stain upon
your name." Judge Cox made no reply
to this tirade, but simply nodded to Mr,
Reed to begin his argument.
Reed then rose to address the jury on
behalf of the priioner. He commenced
by paying a compliment to the jury for
the seriousness, solemnity and care
which had characterized it during this
long trial, a trial unparalleled in the
history of criminal jurisprudence. He
should not endeavor to make any state
ment of the evidence or to draw a
gilded picture of any scene, but he
would simply talk with them as be
David ge, the counsel for the prosecu
tion, had occupied two days in address
ing the jury, and that effort and the
consumption of time on his part showed
the grave apprehension felt by the
prosecution lest something might have
appeared in tbe case which would make
the jury say that tnat poor man was a
lunatic and irresponsible.
The prisoner has certainly sustained
his record tor impartiality in abusing
add contradicting every one who has
had anything to say upon his case from
Judge Cox on the bench to the hum
blest witness on the stand. Before Col.
Reed had been speaking hair an hour
the prisoner began to comment and
contradict. Contrasting the mercy of
the Savior towards those afflicted with
devils insane with the demands ot
the prosecution in this case, Col. Reed
said, ' they say hang him."
Guiteau shouted, "and the American
people say let him go ; the American
people are on my side."
Mr. Reed: "Now, go on with your
Soon after the speaker had occasion
to allude to the evidence of J. W. Gui
teau, when the prisoner again inter
rupted and called out (disparagingly):
"Well, he ain't my reference; I've got
better men than he is for my refer
ence." Col. Reed commented upon the cir
cumstance related by several witness
es, when Guiteau struck his father at
the supper table and Guiteau called out
vehemently, "That wasn't true, I nev
er struck him, never intended to strike
him. I don't fight any one. I'm a
peaceable man. If I don't like any
man I tell him so and tell him to get
out of my way and that settles him."
This act, continued the speaker, "was
the first indication of his insanity. He
denies it; probably does not remember
Guiteau, sneeringly, 'That is owing
to my poor weak mind and disorder
Col. Reed continued:
"Mr. Davidge condescended to read,
yesterday a portion of the evidence in
relation to this incident to show
the depravity of the prisoner and Judge
Porter kindly suggested to' him that
Guiteau struck bis father in the back,
the full record says "or neck or shoul
der." Mr. Davidge, laughingly, "don't go
back on the witness.
Col. Reed: "I am reading from the
record, sir, it says
Guiteau, (with an air of satisfaction
at his superior discernment) "Why,
that was intended for a pun. Reed but
you doa't seem to see it.. I don't know
as that should be wondered at, for it
would require a microscope for ordina
ry mortal sto see it."
