Pattl Angry at Her Treatment In Cincin
Cincinnati, Dec, 30.— The Opera selections
made by Patti are from II Trovatore aad Aids,
both of which she regards as among her best
roles. It is evident she has been put on her
mettle by the events of Messiah night, and that
she has made selection with a view of creating
a furore when she returns. Society here is
agitated somewhat by the charga made by
Patti in an interview in a morning paper, that
she was insulfed by being compelled to go on
the 6tage, instead of being led by President
P<ndelton, of the festival association, or by
the mayor of the city. Also that Cary occu
pied the seat of honor, which should
have been accorded to the soprano.
Tbe reason given for failing to
show the special attentions to Patti is that all
the musical performances under the auspices
of the festival association nothing but the
programme is considered, and nothing per
mitted to interfere with the proprieties of the
art picture contained in it. Hence it has been
tbe custom to prohibit all speeches and an
nouncements on the stage, to discourage en
cores, and ia general to avoid the methods
that prevail at concerts and operas. This de
fense is not accepted by Patti and her friends,
and the question whether she was properly
treated remains unsettled.

LAST WITNESS OF THE PROSECUTION
IN THE GUITEAU CASE.
Scoville Wishes to Introduce Some Newly
Discovered Evidence, but the Prosecu
tion Object -Dr. Gray, of the New York
Insane Hospital, on the Stand Yesterday
—He Proves to ba One of the Best Ex
perts Connected with the Case— The Op
poslngCou usel SilllEncased|ln Passionate
Disputes— Scovllle'd Speech Yesterday De
clared to be the Most Eloquent of tbe
Washington*, Dec. 30.— At 10 o'clock Gm
teau was led into court by the bailiffs. As he
passed the table at which his counsel sat he
paused a moment and whispered to Scoville:
"If you will only keep quiet to-day I will
laugh this cause out of court." As soon as
he reached the dock he shouted: "Some
leading papers in America consider me the
greatest fellow they have met ia some time.
At 8 o'clock last night I received a telegram
which I will read for the edification of this
audience and the American people: 'Mr.
Chas. J. Guiteau, Washington— All Boston
sympathizes with you. You ought to be
president. (Signed.) A Host of Admirers.' "
Pausing a moment, he branched off into a
rambling harangue quoting scripture and
comparing himself to the meek and lowly
Jesus, who used plain language though
sometimes severe. "I have been accused of
using too harsh language," he added, "but I
take my pattern from the Savior of mankind.
I shall submit my name to the next national
convention. I shall expect to be before it.
There are only two men in the country who
want me hung — one is Judge Porter, who ex
pec ta to get $5,000 from the government if lam
convicted, and the other is Corkhill, who ex
pects to get bounced and who knows I am the
cause of it."
Counsel for the prosecution having entered,
Dr. Kempter took the stand, and Scoville re
sumed his examination. Witness did not be
lieve in temporary insanity in the sense that
persons could be insane and wholly recover
from it in an hour. Witness was asked if he
believed Sickles was sane or insane when he
shot Key, and replied: "I think he was sane,
Guiteau — "The jury did not agree with you,
sir. They thought he was insane."
Upon witness leaving tbe stand Corkhill
announced that he had but one more witness
to introduce on the part of the government.
He would like to hear from Scoville as to how
much time he might want to consume upon
sur rebuttal, that some idea might be had as
to how much longer this long drawn out trial
Scoville replied: "We have some witnesses
whose names have been presented since we
closed our case, and I sball ask the court to
permit us to have them sworn, and our reason
will be upon the grouud of newly discovered
evidence material to the case. I 9ball only ask
your honor, however, to allow me to ask a
few questioas of those witnesses, relative to
independent facts not heretofore known
Corkhill — "We would like to know what
you expect to prove."
Scoville — "We havj evidence to offer rela
tive to the state of the prisoner's mind just
before the shooting."
Davidge — "Could you give us an idea of
how much time you will want UDon sur re
Scoville— "Several days; probably all of
Davidge— "We must object, your honor, to
a reopening of this case."
Scoville insisted he did not desire to delay
the trial or consume the time of this court,
for the prosecution had consumed weeks with
their expert witnesses, meeting with them
nightly and conferring with them in the
preparation of this case, and he did not pro
pose to cut short on a mutter of time. He
would renew, however, his proposition that
the jury be allowed to separate and go to
their homes, relying upon their honor and in
Guiteau said. "I agree with that, too, your
honor. They are high-toned, honorable men,
and I ain't afraid to trust them anywhere.
The American people don't want me hung
anyhow, and the best thing this prosecution
can do is to dismiss the indictment and let us
all go home."
Judge Porter, turning towards the dock,
called attention to the outburst of the prison
er, and intimated that if they were to con
tinue he must request that the dock be
moved to the further corner of the room,
where at least the prisoner could not disturb
the jury. "I do not ask," he added, "for im
mediate action, your honor."
Guiteau (sneeringly)— "Oh, you don't, Mr.
Scoville— "l wish Judge Porter would make
his motions when he desires argument or ac
tion upon them, and not be continnally mak
ing his little speeches to the jury."
Judge Porter — "As I have the undoubted
right to do."
The question of permitting the jury to dis
band was again raised, but was dismissed by
the foreman announcing that they preferred
not to separate, provided they could have
reasonable opportunity for exercise and obtain
Corkhill proceeded to reply to what he
termed counsel's aspersions upon "distin
guished medical gentlemen who did honor to
their state." He would repel the assertion
that they met nightly to weave meshes
about this criminal. The prisoner
himself had woven the meshes
that were fast enclosing him, and only two
men, and they the spawns of the medical pro
fession, who could not even acknowledge they
believed in a God, had been found who would
under oath declare their belief in his insanity.
Scoville replied to Corkhill, and Eurprised
every one by making oce of the best and most
impressive speeches that has been heard in the
court since the opening of the trial. In earn
est language hs vindicated the conduct of the
defense, and severely rebuked the course of
the district attorney in his unseemly efforts to
muzzle and drive the defense from the court.
Some manifestation of applause followed
the conclusion of his speech. but it was quick
ly shecked by the court.
Dr. John P. Gray, superintendent of the
New York State lunatic asylum, took the
stand. Witness had made the study of insan
ity his business since ISSO, and in that time
had treated or investigated 12,000 cases of in
sanity. He had never seen a single instance
where the only indication of insanity was an
exhibition of immorality or wickedness, ne did
not believe in what had been called ''moral in
sanity." It was impossible to discover
mental insanity so as to locate impairment
of the moral nature that was not accompa
nied by intellectual deterioration. Insanity
in itself has no more tendency to excite to
crime than neuralgia or any other disease. It
puts nothing new to a man's nature. It only
perverts what is already there Witness at
some length classified various groups of in
sane that had come under his attention, and
described the various phases and peculiarities
of each. He did not believe that any type of
insanity exists outside of asylums that has
not its phronotype in asylums. Recess.
Dr. Gray stated that he made a thorough,
complete and satisfactory examination of the
prisoner at the jail, and gave at length tbe
details of hia examination and conversation
with the prisoner. After half an hour had
been taken up thus, Guiteau remarked: "This
in a very interesting story, no doubt, but it
must be familiar by th.s time to everyone.
The doctor is telling it well, however, and is
getting in all the facts as I told them to him.
I hare no objection to it.''
Witness continuing, said: "I asked the
prisoner the question: 'Suppose the president
had offered tbe Paris consulship to you during
the time you were reflecting upon the subject
of removing him, would you still have shot
him?' and he replied: 'Well, that would have
settled the matter. I wouid have taken the
Guiteau called out from the dock: "I said
if he had offered it to me at any time before
the first of June. If he had offered it after
tbe first it would not have made the slightest
Witness asked the prisoner how he came to
shoot the president, and his reply was: "I
came to the conclusion that the political sit
uation justified it. I gradually became con
vinced of this, and I resolved upon his re
Guiteau shouted again: "That knocks your
Paris consulship, and shows there was no ma
lice in it. Not an element of murder in it, but
a political necessity."
Witness— "l then asked him upon what
grounds he resolved to remove the president,
and he replied: 'I considered the removal of
the president a political necessity.' I then asked
him how he arrived at that conclusion, and
he replied: 'If you will read the papers of
May and June you will find what the political
situation was, and you will perhaps appreci
ate what I mean by a political necessity.' "
Witness then inquired in regard to his alleged
Inspiration, and asked him if it came to him
in the form of a voice or vision or direct com
mand, and his reply was: "No; it came into
my head as a conception. I re
flected upon it until I re
solved that it was justified by the selec
tion." Witness then asked how this state
ment accorded with his theory of inspiration,
and his reply was: "The inspiration was in
the form of a pressure constantly upon me to
commit the act."
Guiteau— "That's all there is in the case, in
short and to the point. You can talk about
it for years if you want to."
Dr. Gray continued the story of his inter
view with Guiteau, with occasional comments
by the latter of assent or dissent, but not to
extent of annoying interruptions, until the
hour of adjournment. Adjourned until to

Barney Smith's Bluff.
In answer to the bluff card of Barney Smith
in the Globe of yesterday, I wish to say that
the wrestling for the champion belt of St.
Paul, to which he alludes, was fairly contested,
and no put up job as he intimates . As to Mr.
Barney Smith's challenge, I have only to say
that I have made no pretentions to being n,
professional wrestler, and as he bills himself
the champion heavy weight of Bismarck
and claims to be a professional collar-and-el
bow wrestler, he certainly cannot expect me,
as an amateur, to accept his challenge. At
least, If he had been honest In his challenge,
he would have given me more then twenty
four hours in which to prepare for such a
match. The challenge is too fl3hy and evi
dently only made as an advertisement for the
match at the Athenaeum last evening.
