When court adjourned at 420 oclock last
evening after an extra session in the
Snell murder trial it was stated by Mr
Turner of counsel for the defendant that
Snell would not be put the stand and
It was very likely that the case would be
given to the jury on Tuesday
Three hours will probably be allotted to
ach tide for the presentation of the case
to the Jury so that It Is likely that alt
testimony In rebuttal will have been heard
by tomorrow evening or early Tuesdav
morning
Yesterday was a battle of the experts
nnd Mr Turner In several Instances won
a hard fought point but only after much
argument The forenoon was occupcd by 1
the witnesses of the Government called 111 1
rebuttal and nlio were questioned as lo
their opinion of Snells mental condition I
Several of these witnesses were officials
of the jail and some crc social acquaint
ances In every case they were con- J
vlnced so they testified of tho sanity of
Snell and had never had any reason to
question It Some ef his ofUcial associates
In the Icntlon Ilureau were among them j
but uone had any idea that he may bavo I
Ijecn on Insane man The questions were
not many and nn the crjss cxamlration
Jlr Turner mcrtly drew from the wit- i
nesses that Snell had alwajs seemed to
them a well informed amiable man of
peaceable habits and that none cf them j
hid ever fcecn him cxcltl or provoked to
rage

Theodore V Sargent a clerk in the Pen

Capt Jsro8 II Harris warden of the

ined by Dr Klchordson Superintendent of
the Government Hospital for the Insanr
Snell had placed his heels together had
wabbled and fallen lo the floor
1rederick IX Sayre another Pension Ilu

of the other associates ot Snell In the of
fice as did Charles Newburgh who worked
lslde the defendant In the bureau

Dr John II Junghaus was called nnd
testified that he bad examined Snell fot
life Insurance on October IS 1M7 for the
Knights f the Maaliees The wltncsg
produced the blank application signed lij
Snell in which the applicant had denied
having ever had convulsions or iny u
the ailments commonly noted In the ap
plications of inuranco companies The
applicant stated that he had no
the brain and was In genera s ixnl health
William H Griffith IcMlQVd that In

him as a perfectly ratiouil man
Edwin Ij Knbison a guard at the jail
testified that the prisoner had four or Ihe
hours sleep at the Jail every night wliitli
was a fair average for prisoners
Upon croswinmlnatlou he admitted
that this was perhaps it little l elow the
av erage
The wllnefs had setu Snell under ex

jail and at thwc ilmes the prfrcnerV

Snell had been veiy iniirh Interested in
the trial of Punk and in other affairs

James K Clark annlher Itnrlon Iiiirenu

him not to put any polsou in the whisky as
he wanted lo make a ulatenunt u Ihe
world about the case befoic he died The
witness had not noticed juy symptoms of
epilepsy
James W Walters captain of the watch
at the District jail related the circuni
Elances attendant upon the examination of
Snell at the jail During the time of the
doctors presence the witness caid Snell
walked badly but when he went to his cell
and thought he was unobserved he walked
as well as any man could It was the de

her ot epileptic patients under his charge
and vras asked to state the result of Ills
examinations of Snell at various times
The witness then related his visits to
SncK when he told him that he need not
answer any questions or submit to any ex
iimlnation unless he desired
Ills answers were mostly monosyllabic
Ills memory seemed to lie nnd his
manner seemed rather Indolent and his
strength below tho normal I noticed a
war near the right eye felt his head all
ever and he made no remark or objection
Hi- v iM that he had received the mark
over the eye from a lick by a mule
and 111- other fracture in a brawl In which
he had been beaten He said he knew- that
he was charged with a crime but that he
had absolutely no recollection of It On
the thltil visit he complained that he did
not get enough sleep and thJt he thougnt
they ought to give him more whisky On
ibis occasion he said that he heard music
in Ms imagination beard cars running and
saw a man In n white robe He also said
he had spells I than had him walked
Jlon up and nnd down the corridor and
wntrlieil him very carefully There was
1111 halting cf cither the arm or the body
but there vvas -a alight limp I concluded
that he was suffering from remorse and
the physical depression resulting from
alcoholic or other excess I diil not And
anything abiorraal in him other tbau what
I have mentioned
The wltnera dilated upou tho various
forms of feigned Insanity and said that It
was very easy for a man lo say he did
not remember which was the very best
reaon to assume that he did remember
the Ily peillietle nl Onc stlnli
The long hypothetical question was lien
put to the witness who replied
Tho man described in this case was not
insane I use nil impersonal expression
The witness tlft n said that the convul
sions could nijj luhls opinion be charged
to the hypotlieiir tot epilepsy alone- but
that they wcni more probably the result ef
alcoholic or ofbeH execrscs
I believe that vvhen the man feigned to
have heard music and seen the man In the
white robe hq wajsj stating to me what he
never experienced fur since he slid they
had come to tiim lnrlng cm- of his Spells
this was the lutuial conclusion Halleptlcs
have no jsiwer te recall what they have ex
perienced anjJ they may be only duter
aiinisl as hls gctjiuu during the trance may
manifest them
The witness said that tho shrinkage of
the leg of Snell was no evidence or Indica
tion of epilepsy or paralysis but that he
thought the small tide was normal and the
large side swollen
Mr Turrcr endeavored to shoie that the
ultni Hi had not always been conrt In his
opinions in testimony in capital case3 be
fore In this ciy and asked the witness if
he bad heard of the iost mortem 011 the
brain or Schneider at whose trial he had
testified The witness had read of it bet

I and Mr Turner At one point Ihe witness
Knld
Vou are trying to be clear to me and
I am trying to bo clear to you
I want you to bo clear to the Jury
doctor
I think the Jury can understand mo
I hope they can and Ill try to said
Mr Turner
The vvltiless declined to testify 33 to the
various forms of epileptic disease
The best thing to do when a man Is
in a seizure Is to let him alone Any at
tempt to inovo him or control him In any
wsy will result In an outbreak of great
violence Ho will break furniture and re
sist every effort to control him
The witness said there was a maxim In
insane hospitals which forbade tho con
tradicllons of epileptics but that when
not Hearing a seizure they were usually
the incst tractable ot patients AIo that
epllevsy and other diseases were not in
compatible in tho same man at the i amo
titie and that the disease might exist for
a long time and not be recognized
Heredity and consanguineous marriages
were gone into the witness saying lhat the
former case predisposed the subject to its
heritage and in the hitter degeneracy
might be looked for although nol of
slty an adjunct ot such marriavcs Ihe
witness was asked if in the event of an
Injury to the right side ot the skull and
an atrophied left side of tho boily he
would attribute It to th Impingement of
the fractured skull on the brain
Well replietl the witness you have
tho best of the argument right along but
my professional opinion Is that there was
ne paralysis
The witness refused to describe the di
mensions of the motor area of the brain
and Mr Turner endeavored to make- him
contribute to the overthrow or the testi
mony of Dr Shute who had testified that
the fracture was within one twelfUi ot an
Inch from the motor nrea
The doctor did not like the examination
ami said
If jou wish you may put an expert on
the stand I dont know sinythlug about
thrse things you are ou now
Why doctor I thought yon were an ex
pert and I nin seeking knoiliHlgc
A Civil rri le-e- Jvitlillitlltlou
It looks lo me more like a civil service
examination
The long hypothetical question of Ihe
defence was put and Hie doctor vvas nsked
if in his opinion under the circumstances
uoted the iKrrson assumed In the crise vvas
a sane or an insane man
I would iay lhat the Insanity is not
made out There is no symptom present
save the commission of the crime
Then to what do you attribute all these
symptoms
To dentition to Indigestion to alco
holism anil other thlngsi
He was then asked If he prcfrrrqd to
attribute his convulsions lo the causes be
had named nether than tie a pressure 011 the
skull and he- replied Hint either ot the
causes named by Mr Turner or himself
might be responsible- He admitted tha
the excessive use of alcohol would have a
bad effect upon an epileptic

their city from January C until 11 oclock
on the morning of January S thus showim
that it would have been an impossibility
for Moran to have been in Washington at
