These gentlemen are all clergymen of large experience, sound judgment and unsullied reputation. They stand in the forefront of their conference for ability and integrity. Being men of intelligence and piety, they win be influenced neither by fear, favor or sympathy. Both Mr. Hoffman and the prosecution have expressed themselves as perfectly willing to commit the case to them, and cheerfully abide their decision. Kev. W. N. McElroy wiU preside by virtue of his office, but will have no voice in the decision. It is simply his duty to see that the order of the church law is preserved, and decide legal points as they may arise^ The public will await tho verdict of this committee with the profouudest interest as to the result it may reach. It has been decided to hold the session-, in secret, as is, we believe, often done iuthe trials of the church. --Bloomiiirjton Pantograph. THE- early settlers on Oil Creek who were in the habit of slamming petroleum from the, waters in the neighborhood hud little idea that it would in a short tune become one of fhe fir^t articles in the commerce of the world; and those who sank the first wells were equally ignorant as to the commercial importance of the discovery. In August. 1880, the first record of the production of oil was made, find it was exactly 339 barrels per dav. Since that time it is estimated "that 110 less than 8331,000,000 have been embarked in the business. Much of it, especially in the early days of the oil excitement, wore sunk in unprofitable wells, but long ago the Criminal . D. C., Jan. 'A. In Court this mornijig, Guiteau made his opening speech as follows: ''I had a very happ) New Year's yesterday, and hope ever\Udy else did. I had lots of visitors, high- toned, middle-toned and low-toned. That takes them all in, I belif-ve. They expressed their opinions freely and none of them want me hung. They all, without dissent, expressed the opinion that I shall be acquitted. Dr. Gray took the stand, and S-JG- ville resumed the cross-examination t-lap yon in the mouth. With this , ("rtbm-at he subsided, however, and o \ turiii'd his attention to writing autographs. John "W.

Last M-ar the exports of crude petroleum, i or its .'.[iiivaleut, from tho United Stales amounted to 402,592,749 gallons This they will reach the enormous total of 600,237,095 gallons.-The increase is caused by tho heavy production of the Bradford region, and the increase of tho use of petroleum by the people of Europe and other countries. During the last six months the product of tho Bradford opinion on the direct examination that the prisoner was sane,,taken into account the evidence of the prisoner himself, but taking that element into consideration his opinion would still be the same, - that the pri-oner is sane, and was sane on the 'Id i if July. Witness was asked if he was familiar with the case of Lieutenant Sanborn, who was killed by Dr. Wright. at Norfolk. Vn.. and replied "Yes, sir; I was sent by the President to make an examination and give an opinion on the case." "How much did yon get for it?" shouted Guitean. "Your idea. Doctor, that a man can't be insane unless his brain is diseased, is rather frivolous. You don't agree with the Saviour. You ought to study up spir- itology, then yon would catch some new ideas." Witness did not believe in what is termed by some writers "emotional insanity' 1 or ''moral insanity."-- '·Kleptomania" he considered simply thieving: "dipsomania." drunkenness, and -I pysomania" incendiari--m. These designations were simplx con venient terms which had been invented to cover certain crimes. ··Insairi- factm-ed testimony. Guiteau--And so do I. After arguments upon the tjues tion the court again ruled against the defense, and this witness .wa* withdraw n. Scoville again brought up the question of introducing new witnesses, and after argument was madothe defense gave notice that they would submit a motion in writing to-morrow giving the names of witnesses and the facts to be testified to. and , shortly introduce a new feature. So-called -'cranks," numbering between forty and fifty, have been arrested here since Guiteau shot the President, most of whom have been sent to the St. Elizabeth Insane Asylum on physicians' certificates. The phvsicians'in each case will, it is said, be'subpcenaed for the purpose of comparing those ca«es with that of Giu'teau, and demonstrating, if the commitments referred to were justly made, that Guiteau must be likewise insane. \TOBTI-NC siwaits Dr. C.

C«ito, ILL., Jan. 3.--A general delivery took place here last night about 10 o'clock, resulting in tho rs- cape of five desperadoes awaiting trial for various offenses. Haz Martin, the city jailor, was approached about 10 o'clock by a female, who presented an order for the release of one of the prisoners confined in the jidl. Opening the door of the jail to notify the prisoner to come forward, he was met with a deadly blow upon the back of the head from a bludgeon ill the hands of one of fhe prisoners,and as he fell to the floor was kicked and beaten in a brutal manner by another. With a yell the entire mob made a rush for 'the outside door, their liberty. i,a ili-i-w a *50 (»i Gfivi nimcnt Bini'l · u I.tulli'S Gold Wntui). tlti-ri- w i l l » ' · ! · · · ' '' til.- ulVlO" i'f ,;·*··!

The chief trouble of the oil producers during the last ten years has been that there was too much oil produced, and the price has fallen to a ridiculous figure compared with those which formerly ruled.-Nearly everybody in the petroleum trade' can remember when CO cents per gallon was occasionally paid for refined petroletim. and when 33 to 40 cents was the average rate. Now, if the refiner gets 8 cents per gallon he thinks he is receiving a fair return on his outlay of capital. One pipe line already carries the oil from the wells to tide-water and another will be finished within a year. This and other improvements will reduce the cost of manufacturing, but it is hardly likely that oil can be sold at much les- pr'ice to consumer than that of the present time. -- Philadelphia Pi, -. P.vrn succeeded in making herself verv disagreeable at Cincinnati, and demonstrated that her tongue can frame other than sweet sounds. What she said about her sister artists was not only ungenerous but spiteful, and her attack upon Miss Cary was as ty,'' siiid the witness, "is nev.T trmih- mitted any more than cancer." The examination progressed w i t h tedious detail. In tin 1 effort to extract something favorable to the defense, counsel renewed the attack upon the witness again and again, and each time was m«t with evasive or qualified replies. Filially, Scoville, with some impel tine-nee, inquired: "'Can you tell me. Doctor, how many direct replies you have given mo this- morning?" Answer--I don't know that 1 luue given yon any. I propose to r.nsw er precisely in my own way, Mr. Scoville. I am under oath and I propose to give all information bearing upon the case in niy possession, but I do not care to drug my personalities into it any more than possible. The prisoner meanwhile had observed marked decorum, at iuten als gazing out of the window, but most of the time he appeared to be busily engaged in writing his autograph upon cards which were handed to him from the audience by attendants. Scoville desired to put in evidence certain tabulated statements from the CHAMPAIGN.

Che increase is small in proportion o the enormous growth of the vol- irne of trade, and especially in proportion to 4he number of persons ngaged in business. Compared with'lSTS, the showing is strongly the advantage of the year just closed, the failures in that year being 10,000, and liabilities $231,000,000. In the year 1881 only one person in even- 140 engaged in business has failed, while in 1880 the proportion was one in every 158, in 1879 one in every 105. and in 1878 one in every sixty-four.

I do not know what action in the matter the defense will wish to take, but I will inform the court to-morrow morning." Dr. Bowker. of Kansas Cit\. was called by Scoville. The witness met Mrs. Dunmire, atLeadville, Col., and conversed with her. She said she hud "entertained grave doubts as to the mental conditior. of Guiteau at the time she obtained her divorce, and thought at the time she had better defer the divorce proceedings, and await some further developments in the mental condition of her husband." Clark Mills, the sculptor, was called for the purpose ol identifying the plaster cast of Guiteau's head. At the first question, ''Did you make a cast of the prisoner's head?'' Di- vidge objected to any reopening ol the question of insanity, such as would be involved by the identification of this cast by this witness. The question of insanity had been gone over direct and in rebuttal. The prosecution had already admitted the genuineness of the casts.
