Scarcely had the wires ceased to vibrate, after
tagiaff the terrible message, before the ptartliag
intelligence was whispered along the streets, sad
from that moment the excitement grew rapidly
and soon became manifest and universal. Hun-
dreds of citizens of all parties and all shades of
politics gathered In front of Tb* News office, and
exhibited the intenseet anxiety to learn the facts of
the shooting and the condition ot the President.
Democrats united with Republicans in expressions
of regret,and the general feeling gave vent to words
of the sharpest condemnation.
The death of ex-Chief Justice Hiram Warner, of
Georgia, was announced in the press dispatches
yesterday morning. Judge Warner emigrated to
Georgia from Massachusetts over fifty years ago,
when quite a young man. He commenced life in
Merriweather county as a school-teacher, and very
soon gained the confidence and esteem of the peo-
ple in that section of the State. He studied law at
an early age, and at onoe took high position at the
bar, exhibiting those qualities of analysis, logic,
close reasoning and thorough preparation of cases
that are always sure to win distinction in that pro-
fession. He onoe represented his district in Con-
gress, but being better fitted for the bench than the
political arena, he sought and obtained the circuit
judgeship, where he soon attained popularity and
distinction second to no jurist that ever presided
in Georgia. Thoroughly familiar with the laws,
incorruptible in their administration, hnd incor-
rigibly just as citizen and jurist, the way to the
Supreme Bench and the Chief Justiceship lay open
to him, aad the whole people of the State regarded
him as the man above all others for the place. He
resigned the Chief Justiceship about a year ago.
after serving the State on the bench for about
forty years. His age Is not remembered at this
writing, but it was about three soore and
ten. He was many times urged for the
Governorship, and frequently voted for in the
State Democratic Conventions, but he was no poli-
ttofau, and the people preferred to keep him on
the supreme bench, feeling always safe from bad
rulings while he was there. Georgia has lost one
of her, purest citizens and her ablest jurist.

The Indiana temperance advocates have enlisted
for the war. A constitutional amendment for
prohibition is to be submitted to the popular vote,
and its friends have established a bureau at Indian
apolis, from whicb-it is intended to flood the State
with temperance literature. The politicians on both
sides, who would like to have this question ranked
as a side issue, will now have some lively work on
hand to satisfactorily.straddie the fence.
In the event of the death of President Garfield the
election of Conkling maybe considered as a fore-
gone conclusion. Politicians of a certain stamp
care nothing for the party except for the offices,
and nothing for principle nxcept for the spoils. A
well-informed Republican officeholder in this city
expresses himself as confident that Conkling will
now win the fight; that the accession of Mr. Arthur
to the presidency will hasten this compromise; but
he is equally confident that it will prove eventually
the death of the party.
REG TTLA.R DAILY COMMEKCIJil. JOI8-
General Grant's interview with the President,
at Long Branch, was not so cordial after all. It is
represented as a very "chilly" meeting. Grant
remarked; "It has been a little chilly lately," and
the President replied: "Yes, is has been very
chilly." In view of the fact that Grant had been
for several days at Long Branch, within a few
yards of the hotel at which the President was stop-
ping, without calling upon him, this meeting at an
informal reception, given by the President, may be
regarded as a "chilly" proof of the decadence of
A good deal of attention is being directed just
now to cigarette smoking and the injurious effects
thereof. The estimate for this year's manufacture
of the article is put do*n at a round billion, and
divers homilies are preached against the bad effects
of the habit. The New York Express, commenting
on tobacco in its various forms, desoants on the
cigarrette and then jumping to the cigar philoso-
phizes after this fashion:
A cigar contains acetic, formic, butyric, valeric
and proprionic acids, prussic acid, creosote, carbolic
acid, ammonia, sulphuretted hydrogen, pyridine,
virodine, picoline, and rubedine, and a boy just
after having smoked his first one will think there's
some more and worse things in it besides.
Here is what the New York Sun knows about
One of Professor Newcomb's assistants says that
the earth meets fifty millions of comets, more or
less, every year. Almost all of them are ignited by
the rapid passage through our atmosphere, and be-
come shooting stars. Now and then one does not
ignite, and strikes the earth. These are called me-
teoric stones, of which a very large specimen i* in
the Smithson Institution. The universe is full of
them. Tiie assistant adds that it Is held by some
astronomers that the result which would follow,
should a comet strike the earth—a large comet-
would be to resolve both bodies at once, by the con-
cussion, Into clouds of Incandescent mist, or gas
eous matter, a result which would be so sudden and
instantaneous that the inhabitants of the earth
would never know what had happened.
While so many zealous people are laboring to
sustain missions among the heathen, would it not
be the correct thing to spend at least a small quan-
tity of the religious force in seeking to convert the
home article? a recent police report states that in
the city of London " there are not les» than 30,000
regular thieves. 150,000 habitual gin-drinkers and
150,000 people living ill systematic debancliery and
vice, and that out of a population of four and a half
millions of people not more than 200,000 are attend-
ants upon church worship, and not more tiian C3,-
000 are regular communicants." Almost the same
rule of proportion may be applied to New York.

The Boston Herald says Vanderbilt has " a stake
in the country." The United States owes him $G0,-
000,000, and it suggests there is "food for thought" in"
the fact. Yes, there is "food," but it is not at all nu-
tricous to the poor. Adding Mr. Vanderbilt's other
evidences of wealth to his sixty millions of Govern-
ment securities, his fortune can not aggregate less
than $120,000,000, and the "thought" is this, that
there must be corresponding poverty and
distress. Mr. Vanderbilt probably never
produced a dollar in his life. All his mil-
lions are traceable to the sweat of the poor. The
products of their labor have been skillfully manipu-
lated by the millionaire, and in exact proportion
to his draughts upon money-producing toil, the
labor of the country is discounted, and the poor
Tns city of Austin is officially announced through
the advertising colnmns of The News this morn-
ing as a candidate for the location of the Univer-
sity of Texas. Austin presents some quite foroibl#
reasons whv the university should bs there locat-
ed, chief among which are the healthfulness ami
and salubrity of climate, the possession by the
State of a proper site, proximity to building mate-
rials, accessibility by rail, the opportunities for
general observation in many different ways which
the State capital presents to the student, geograph-
ical position, and the sense of "poetic justice in
building a grand university on the very spot se-
lected for that purpose by those who made and
gave us Texas at the time when they were yet
struggling for their freedom," all of which is fairly
to the point, and which the people of the State will
doubtless weigh and consider between now and
the 6th of September next.
Never before in Galveston was a mbre profound
sensation created than was produced by the news
of the shooting of President Garfield, yesterday.

[Special Telegram to the News.l
Austin, July 2.—The Governor and Board of Edu-
cation having been criticised by Thi News and the
Teachers' Convention for sending Mr. Hollingsworth
to St. Louis and otherNorthern places for teachers
for the summer, several schools are Indignant. The
Governor to a News correspondent stated that the
summer norma! schools are not State schools or-
ganized by the Stats, or supported to the extent of
one cent by the State, and are not being organized
nor will be controlled by the Board of Education or
himself. They are supported by the Peabody Fund.
Mr. Hollingsworth has all along been a subagentin
Texas for the Peabody trustees, and when he was
authorized to organize these schools the Board of
Education, of which he is secretary, readily granted
him leave of absence to perform that service. His
expenses on his trip are no charge upon the State.
No one has any right to critcise his action in pro-
curing trained, teachers out of Texas for these
schools. They are intended to be schools for train-
ing Texas teachers, and it would be absurd
to select teachers from the very class that is
to be taught, and still more absurd to
attempt to dictate to the Peabody trustees that
their schools shall be taught by teachers from
Texas or any other State. The Board of Education
has no responsibilities in the premises, and Mr.
Hollingsworth is responsible only to the trustees ot
the Peabody fund. It is estimated also as a signi-
ficant fact that the teachers, who in the convention
have passed the resolutions criticising the board
or Mr. Hollingsworth, and who also propose
amendments to the law governing public schools,
ara almost to a man interested in private and sec-
tarian schools, colleges and academies, and are al-
ways disposed to look with jealousy upon the suc-
cess of State free schools. Colleges and high
schools of all kind here eeem to be an issue.
Yesterday the ninety-dav laws of the last Legis-
lature session went into effect. Among the most
important are the Common-Sense Indictment bill,
which Governor Roberts thinks may prevent the
quashing of many indictments; also the acts grant-
ing land pensions to old Texas veterans and to
crippled Confederate soldiers: the act setting apart
300 leagues of land out of the Dublic domain for
county school fund*; the act limiting the plea of
intoxication and temporary insanity in defense of
crime; the law establishing the Thirty-sixth Judi-
cal District: and the law attaching a large, portion
of Hill to Johnson oountv.

Washington. July 2.—President Garfield was
shot this morning at the Baltimore and Potomac
Depot while on his way to New England. He re-
ceived one ball in the arm and one between the
hip and kidneys. Five physicians are in attend
ance. and have probed for the ball without success.
He is dangerously wounded, but may recover.
The shooting was done by a slender man, about
five feet seven inches in height. He refused to
give his name, but it is said by persons who profess
to know him that his name is Gitte&u, and that he is
the ex-consul to Marseilles, The man was arrested
immediately and carried to police headquarters
and subsequently removed to jail.
The shooting occured in the ladies' room of the
depot immediately after the President had entered,
walking arm and arm with Secretary Blaine,
on their way to the limited express
train, which was about ready to leave.
Secretary Blaine,! on hearing pistol shots, two
in number, rushed in the direction from which
they came, with the view of arresting the assassin.
Before reaching the man he noticed the President
fall, and returned to him and lifted him up.
Both shots took effect, the first in the right arm
and the second just about the right side near the
kidneys. Physicians probed for the ball immedi-
ately, Two companies of regulars were ordered
from the barracks and have been posted around
the executive mansion.
There is great excitement, and the streets are
thronged with anxious inquirers, eager to learn
the condition of the President.
The shooting took plaoe in the presence of fifty
or sixty ladies. The President has been made as
comfortable as possible, and all persons are ex-
cluded from the grounds.
The President is conscious and does not com-
plain of great suffering. It Is impossible to say as
yet what the result will be. Physicians are of the
opinion that the wounds are not necessarilv fatal.
The following dispatch was sent to Mrs. Garfield
at Elberon, Long Branch:
Washington, July 2.—The President wishes me
to say to you for him that he has been seriously
hurt: how seriously he can not say. He says he is

A Physician's Statement.
Washington, July 2. — Dr. Townshend, Health
Officer of the District, in conversation this after
noon, said: " I found the President, when I arrived
at the Baltimore and Potomac depot, about five
minutes after the shooting, in a vomiting and faint-
ing condition. I had his head lowered, which
had been elevated by the atiendants, and
administered aromatic spirits ot ammcnia
and brandy to revive him. This had the desired
effect, and the President regained consciousness.
He was asked where he felt the most pain. He
replied in the right leg and foot. He then ex-
amined the wounds, introducing his fingers, which
caused a slight hemorrhage. I then decided to
have him moved up stairs from the crowd. Shortly
after getting him there Drs. Smith and Purvis ar-
rived, and on consultation with them it was decided
to remove him to the White House. Dr". Smith
accompanied the President in an ambulance to the
White House, where another examination was
made and stimulants again administered. An in-
effectual attempt was made to trace the course of
ttie wound, and at 12:20, the President suffering
much pain, a hypodemeric injection of morphine
was administered". Dr. Townshend left the President
shortly afterward, somewhat revived. The doctor
said at 2 p. m. that he could not give an intelligent
opinion as yet. but he pronounces the wounds as
dangerous but not necessarily fatal.

TIse News in tlie Money Marts.
New York, July 2.—The news down town was re-
ceived w ith consternation anil caused much ex-
citement on Wall street, and brokers and bankers
almost forgot their business in iheir eagerness to
get further particulars. They besieged Kernan's
News Agency on Broad street, where dispatches
from Washington were constantly arriving—all
being distributed. Groups were seen in the street
discussing the subject anxiously and newsboys
did a rushing business in extras.
At the opening of the Stock Exchange the news
knocked the bottom out of the market, but further
dispatches announcing that the wounded President
was in a fair way to recover, and was not so dan-
gerously wounded as first reported, caused a reac-
tion, and the decrease was soon recovered, so that
within an hour quotations were back to a healthy
Standard. At the Sub Treasury and Custom-Houso
there was al o ran 'h excitement over the news.

that President Garfield was not mortally wounded,
shouts of "God be Thanked 'went up from every
side, and a sudden revulsion of feeling made more
than one eye moist. From all sides v. as heard one
expression—"If President Garfield lives he will be
the most popular President the country ever had."
Who tlie Assawsiu Is.
Chicago, July 2.—C. J. GuitteAU. who shot Presi-
dent Garfieid this morning, has been known in Chi-
cago for the past twelve years, and for much of
the time been considered as more than half insane.
He may have had French blood In his veins, but
was to all aopearances an American. He wore 'nis
hair brushed up in front, giving his face a start-
ling look. When he first arrived In Chicago he be-
gan practicing law. He married a sister of George
Scoville, the well-known lawyer here, and lived
about the Union Place, but being of a shifting char-
acter he became a nuisance, and was finally for-
bidden his house by Scoviile. After living
in a precarious fashion here for some time, ha
went to New York only to return in 1878. He then
professed to have been converted, and began lec-
turing under the auspices of the Young Men's
Christian Association. He was next known in" con-
nection with a scheme to buy out the Inter-Ocean
and run it after the pattern of the New York Her-
ald. As Guitteau had no capital and no backing,
his scheme collapsed, and he returned to his
former practice of debating. His reputation
has never been of the best, and his name was con-
nected with several scandals, until he sank so low-
that no notice was taken of him whatever. About
six months ago he disappeared from his usual
haunts, and has not been seen in Chicago since.
Guitteau is described by lawyers here a3
having b&en while here what is known
as a "shyster," whatever practice ha
had being in the lower criminal courts.
He was regarded as weak-minded, and at one tlm«
was frantic on temperance, and delivered a lectura
at the First Methodist Church on that subject.
Failing to pay the Tribune for its advertisement o^
tlie lecture, that paper wrote him up as a fraud,
and was sued by him for libel, the suit never corn-
ing to an issue. He wrote a pamplet on the Sec-
ond Coming of Christ," which was published by-
Sansen & McCluning as a cunosaty. V ery little is
definitely known of the man, aad that little is un-
favorable in every way.
The district jail, a large brown stone structure
situated in the eastern extremity of the city, was
visited by Associated Press reporters shortly after
11 o'clock for the purpose of obtaining an inter-
view with Guitteau, the assassin of President Gar-
The officers refused admittance to the building',
stating as a reason that they were acting under
instructions from Attorney-General Mac-vaagh,
