[SPECIAL BY TB_-E..ril TO THE RECORD- _> ION.] .
Washington, December ; 28th. — Guiteau
came into the Court-room this morning look
ing paler than usual. He had not slept well.
A man was placed in a cell near his who was
suffering from a most violent type of mania,
caused by excessive use of morphine, and dur
ing the whole night his shrieks rang through
the jail, j Guiteau was annoyed, and asked
what was the occasion , for such a riot. . The
keeper replied, ".We've got a crazy man on
our hands to-night." .'. Wei'," said Guiteau,
" why don't you choke him and make him
keep quiet," and not let respectable people be
disturbed in this way by a miserable lunatic.'

insanity?'' He replied, " Yes, sir. I know
of a man who was insane for twenty-four
hou-s." • - - •
Scoville (eagerly)— And then he got well ?
Witness No, sir ; he died. [Laughter, at
Scoville's expense.]
The witness was asked what he meant yes
terday, by saying : " I think he, the prisoner,
has been playing a part in Court." He re
plied : " I believe he has been feigning what
he believes to be insanity. It was not really
insanity. I believe he has been attempting
to give the impression to the Court that he
is insane, and with that idea has been acting
a part."
* . THE PRISONER INTERRUPTS.
Scoville soon became involved in a discus
sion with the counsel on the pertinence of the
question, when Guiteau shouted : " You had
better let him go ; you are making altogether
too much of him. If you have not got enough
sense to see it, I will have to tell you."
Allusion was made to the ax incident, when
Guiteau commented f contemptuously : Oh,
nonsense ; that ax story is the merest fiction ;
it's all rubbish."
Shortly afterwards he said: "Doctor, just
tell us something about Abraham, and we
will let you go."
The witness was asked if he was not dis
charged for granting false certificates of
health to William M. Tweed, when the latter
was in confinement in the penitentiary, and
replied : "I never gave Tweed a certificate
of health or of . ill health, and I was never
discharged from any position in my life."
ANOTHER NOTED EXPERT SATS THE ASSASSIN
IS SANE.
Dr. Randolph Barksdule, Superintendent
of the Central Lunatic Asylum, near Rich
mond, Va,, visited the prisoner at the jail.
He had alto closely observed bim in Court,
and, from bis personal examination and
observation, was of the opinion that he was
sane. * '. •.'"
- The witness also testified that he believed
G--.it--> bad been feigning in Court. Th.
witness believed, taking as true tbe facts set
forth in the two hypothetical questions of the
pro secution, that the prisoner was sane when
he shot the President.
A THIRD EXPERT CALLED TO THE STAND.
"' Dr. John H. Callander, of Nashville, Su
perintendent of • the Tennessea Asylum for
the Insane, had given special attention to the
study (i inianity for the past twelve years,
and had seen abo.it 2,000 cases during his
connection with the Tennessee Asylum. The
witness had visited the prisoner in jail, and
also closely observed him in Court, and be
lieved him to be perfectly sane. ' Witness did
not believe that the Deity ever inspired a
man to kill a fellow-creature', and any one
who labored under such an insane delusion
' would show it in act, if not by words. An
swering the hypothetical questions, he said
the prisoner was undoubtedly -tie.
Scoville objected, and Guiteau interposed
his remarks. . Scoville made a sharp cross
examination." .

to a Court of justice and to a Christian na
tion to allow it to be entertained for a mo

PORTER INSISTS ON REMOVING THE PRISONER.
Judge Porter proceeded to insist upon his
view and declared. that the time had come
when, in the name of t' c . American people
and .on behalf of the Government and the
Federal Comt, he felt it his duty to demand
that the prisoner be removed to tbe dock.
Guiteau (spiteful.})— " Oh, you do! you
big-mouthed Porter !"
- The Court- officials sitting behind the
prisoner attempted to quiet him, when he
whirled round and smile 1 at one of them :
Will you mind your business ? or I'll slap
you in the mouth, you fool you."
Judge Porter continued his remarks and
Guiteau again interrupted him and shouted :
" Well,' you had better mind your own busi

ARGUMENT of PORTER ASP davidgb.
. Judge Porter said "That in my business
here to-day,, and, your honor, I must now
insist upon my motion of Saturday, that the
prisoner be removed to the dock."
- Scoville arose to speak, when Judge Cox
said ;■'" Let ' me - know first if the counsel
desires to be heaid upon the motion to remove
the prisoner to the dock. "
Judge David ere then proceeded to speak to
the motion. "He believed the time had
come when every one present was perfectly
satisfied that the prisoner was perfectly sane
in respect of his behavior, and was amenable
to the same rules as other prisoners were. In
the case of General Sickles, who was tried in
this Court for murder, the Judge refused to
deviate from the rule, although he was a dis
tinguished lawyer and a member of Congress
at the time. - He sat in the prisoners' dock
during bis trial." . - ,
Scoville said that he would assent to any
proposition which might be deemed neces
sary. ■ No one had suffered more than he had
from the prisoner's behavior. . y %____*

counsel, I shouldn't hare any occasion for
these remark?. You are doing well enough
on your theory, but your theory is altogether
too narrow/ You haven't got brains enough
for this case.'
Colonel Reed denied the assumption that
the prisoner's sanity had been esUlisbed.
No human knowledge could fathom the work
ings of . an insane mind, and humanity would
dictate, if a reasonable doubt should exist,
that leniency be extended toward him. He
thought an admonition from the Court will
suffice. . yyy- ./.. .-.._ ■■■■.::,.., -r-,_ -,
\ Corkhill insisted . upon ' Gui teau's removal

special protection than is accorded any other
prisoner. ».r/a 4 ;- L ';<--.*s_i'^-;i;> - - - : 7.

you want to get me shot. You might as well
hang me up outside and tell the men to shoot
me. I tell you (raising his ▼<>»<-• almost to a
shriek) that God Almighty would curse you,
sir, if I was put in that dock and shot, you
miserable wretch, you. '
Scoville, with much feeling, protested
against the proposition of the District Attor
ney, which could not be understood by any
one other than an invitation to all who bear
it to shoot the prisoner if an opportunity
offered. .
JUDGE PORTER'S REMARKS.
Judge : Porter, » following Scoville, said :
" The assassin of the President will assassi
nate no more forever, and the voice which is
not silenced now will be as dumb as that of
his victim when the end of the law is reached.
[ App'aus3.] No man, sane or insane, is per
mitted to s.y the arm of the law in his pres
ence is powerless. - : I have approved — I say it
in view of the condemnation of the American
people, as represented by their papers, be
cause they did not understand the situation
as we did have approved and vindicated
your Honor's course down to the time this
prisoner proclaimed, with the acqniesence of
his counsel, that he had been sane from the
hour after he executed this foul, diabolical
and infamous murder. .When I made this
motion I felt that the time had come when it
was due to the mi. j -sty of the law, to a vin
dication of the American Government, and,
above all, to a vindication of the judiciary,
that the stop should be taken which I now
indicate. : You suspended ' your decision in
the hope that you might be able to extend to
this same criminal and homicide still further
clemency ; but if it be extended it will be at
some peril — peril to the name of American
jurisprudence, peril in respect of the indefi
nite continuation of the trial, which, without
the interposition of the prisoner, would have
terminated three weeks ago. The time now
comes when the law must make its appear
ance in this Court-room, and tbe man who
pretends to be a maniac shall no longer sit
at the counsel table and exercise privileges
whic'-i you would accord no member of the
American bar."
The - prisoner — A very nice speech, but
there is not a word of truth in it.
THE JUDGE'S DECISION,
The Court then rendered its decision. ' It
was hardly necessary to Bay that the conduct
of the prisoner had been in persistent viola
tion of order and decorum. In the beginning
the only methods which could be resorted to
to suppress this disorder were such as must
infringe the constitutional rights of the pris
oner, and that was a conclusive argument
against them. Until Saturday lost no other
method had been proposed. ' Then this propo
sition (which he had already had in mind)
was submitted. "It had hitherto been the
impression, shared by Court and counsel,
that the prisoner's condust and language in
Cou-t would afford the best indication of his
moral character, and contribute largely to
the enlightenment of the Court and jury on
the question cf his responsibility. It was,
tl.eretore, in accordance with the express
de -ire of the Diet: ict Attorney that the Court
had allowed such latitude of conduct in
order to furnish the experts an opportunity of
diagnosing the prisoner's case. As it cow
appeared, the opinions of the experts have
been largely founded en tbe exhibitions
which had taken place on the trial, and if
they, had contributed ' to enable those experts
to reach their conclusions it would be a com
plete vindication of the view of the District
Attorney as to the proper course to be pur
sued. At this stage of the trial, however,
this object seemed to have" been accomplished.
The trial was now approaching its close. The
experts had had ample opportunity to make
up their judgments, and pronounce them be
fore the Court and jury. It was incumbent
on the Court cow to impose such' restraint as
the circumstances of the case admitted, and
which could conduce to an orderly conduct of
the case. The prisoner had a right to hear
the testimony of witnesses. He could not be
gagged or sent out of Court. The proper
place for a prisoner on trial for felony was the
dock. He could only come within the bar to
be arraigned, and to receive sentence. If the
Court granted him the privilege of Bitting be
side bis counsel, it was a privilege which
could be withdrawn summarily. While a
prisoner had an undoubted right to act as
his own counselor, appearing as his counsel,
he could not exercise both rights simultane
ously. Having accepted cninsel, the pris
oner had waived his right to appear as such
in person. Oa consideration of all the cir
cumstances, the Court thought the motion
should have been granted, and that the pris
oner should be placed in the dock, but he di
not mean that the prisoner should be exposed
to any danger. He should have the fullest
protection. ■ ' •*-:
--, REMOVED TO THE DOCK.
The prisoner . (speaking quietly, as though
he dreaded being placed in the dock, which
was filled at the time with spectator*.) To
settle the matter, I will sit quietly here.
Will it not be satisfactory if I keep quiet and
stay here ? If I sit in the dock I may be
worse.
The Court directed the Marshal to clear
the dock and place the prisoner there.
During the confusion and noise incident to
this movement, the prisoner exclaimed, in a
subdued tone, " I have no objection to going
to the dock, if your Honor says so."
The Court — I say so, -.imply iv hopes of
keeping you quiet. ;.
The prisoner— move that the Court-room
be cleared. If I am going into the dock, I
want the Court-room cleared.
The prisoner having been placed in the
dock, and quiet having been restored. Porter
said: "Itistobe borne in mind that the
chimera which seems to haunt the prisoner
has no foundation. He is in no danger, ex
cept from the hangman's rope, aud so long as
an officer of the law stands beside him co
man will imperil that officer in the discharge
of his public duty by firing a shot at the
prisoner." [Applause.]
" I ain't afraid," the prisoner shouted, "to
walk through . the streets of . Washington.
God Almighty will protect me, as Ha has
done." -- > -■-■ *' .*."-»
.After glancing aroutd his new place he
called out, "Oh! I rather like this, your
Honor, lt gives me a much better oppor
tunity to see. " _ .-; a :- f •". 7^

the prisoner, the examination progressed for
s.veral minutes without incident. * ' "' - ' . *
THE PLASTER CAST OF GUITEAC'S HEAD.
I Scoville handed up a plaster cast of Gui
teau's head, and inquired if the inequalities
were sufficient to attract his attention.
: : " That looks like Humpty-dumpty," eho-t
--ed Guiteau, as the witness held up the head
and closely examined i r . " Corkhill, I'm in
debted to you for this fine seat. It is a great
improvement."-'; ■ '" -. . ,
Witness thought the head was decidedly
well shaped, though he attached very little
importance to such matters. He had in bis
asylum insane person . with very symmetrical
heads, and knew plenty of sane people with
very badly shaped beads.
■Witness did not belie*-* Guiteau bad been
feigning insanity in . the Court-house, but
thought he had exaggerated his natural
character vanity, insolence and audacity. -
Guiteau shouted, " You mean tbat when I
am assaulted I hit back. You see old Porter
has been promised $5,000 if he would get me
hanged. He sees that the American people
don't want me hanged, and his fee is there
fore slipping through his grasp. That makes
him mad." - _ . - - -
As tbe crier announced the adjournment of
Court, Guiteau called out, "On! I'll get in
my work over here. Don't you worry about
that." . ■.-.<-. -, > .... .7... ,y.,y :^

" Yonr client Guiteau is an ungrateful fel

; " Yee, yes," replied Scoville ; " if it were
not for the fact that I feel assured that he is
insane, no power nor money in the world
would ever have induced me to defend him.

American people will be grateful to me if I

The general belief is that Scoville would
not only have, naver entered the cage, but
would have thrown ' it up aft-rwaids, but for
the influence that bis wife, the sister of Gui

The Course of Judge Cox.
Washington, December 28_t.— The re
marks made by Judge Cox to-day in granting
the motion to place Guiteau in ths prisoners*
dock are the subject of much comment this
evening, and there seems to be a general
unanimity of opinion tbat his explanation of
his reason for according extraordinary lati
tude to the assassin up to the present time is
satisfactory. It appears that the prosecution
exDre_ely desired Judge Cox to allow Guiteau
full opportunties for exhibiting to the experts
daily assembled in the Court-room his actual
mental condition and real moral character
istics, and that the adoption oi this, course bas
been justified by the fact that all the opinions
of experts thus far examined have been
largely based upon those very exhibitions.
The explanation is particularly gratifying to
the people of Washington, most of whom,
without regard to party, have long
held - Judge _ Cox in high esteem for
his fine legislative abilities and upright
character, acd have witnessed with concern
the storm of abuse to which he has patiently
submitted until the proper time for vindica
tion should arrive. There is considerable
speculation as to what his future course will
be, now that he has intimated bis intention
to bold Guiteau henceforth within bounds.
The defense of insanity will if course con
tinue to be maintained, and Guiteau can
make himself heard from the dock quite as
readily as from his former seat beside hie
counsel. The question may soon rscur
whether the Judge has any right
to assume the assassin's sanity in
advance of tbe jury's verdict, and
upon this assumption treat him as a sane
man should be treated under the same cir
cumstances. It is moreover insisted by many
well informed persons that the trial of an ad
mittedly sane prisoner would be helped by
gagging him or removing him from the Court
room tor any time j whatever during the
progress of his trial. On the other hand,
there is high authority for holding that the
constitutional right of a prisoner to be present
at his trial does not include tbe light to pre
vent a trial '-.y unseemly disturbance. . .'~, 7
Scoville Bushes Into Print. - y, '..'
Wabhingto-, December 28th.— Scoville
sent the following communication to the /'<_<
to-night :
My attention has been tailed to a published inter
view with Marshal Henry, and I de-ire toco- net
what may be a f-l-e impression in the public mind,
from tie statement of the Marshal as published, lie
says Mrs. Scot ille got $200 for her witness' fees, and
put it down in her pocket, or words to that effect.
The fact was that alee got -02, and that $2 only went
down into her |>oeket, the balance being u__
to pay our board bill. The Marshal bas the
figures in his cilice, hia deputy having paid
the money, and it is hardly just that he should
make such a statement. It becomes material
whether " two" is placed at the right or left of tbe
other figures when counting money, and we do not
like to be prejudic.d by any mistake in that respect.
The Marrbal also seemed to complain that the law
of this District allows defendant's witnesses to be
paid by the Government. The same law that al ows
the Marshal his compensation out of the public
treasury alio* s the payment of these witness— •'
fees, and tie has no more right to complain of it
than I have to complain of his drawing his pay from
the public treasury. I think witnesses for the pros- -
edition will cost the Government three times as
much as those for the defense.

Mas. Lani'try's Debut. — Speaking of
Mrs. Langtry 's recent debut in I private
theatricals, London Truth says : " Mrs.
Langtry came forward arrayed in an un
pretending pink dress, auil, with her arms
full of fiowers, she sat down at . a table,
and then proceeded to act as though, in
stead of this being the first time she had
ever essayed her skill on a stage, she bad
been playing liv.ly young widows and other
such parts to critical audiences from her
earliest childhood. Whether she was
nervous or not I do not know', but there
was not a trace of nervousness to be per
ceived. Her elocution was singularly clear,
and her gestures and by-play perfect. I
was never more surprised in my life. .. It ia
difficult to judge of anyone from a single
performance, but if Mrs. Langtry can play
otber parts as well as she does lively young
widow?, she would, were she to adopt the
stage as a profession, be a fortune to any
theater if she were brought out by a mana
ger to fulfill a great want — according to the
well-known phraseology of the prospect
uses.".
