Is icasonablo to nsaiinio when tho matter it

matter It Intended foruso only between two
persons upon subjects licisomil to them
Thlspicsuinptlon can bo lemovcd by an
examination of thosubjett matter pioduced
by the process adopted
Tno picsumpiiou against mu iiiiiuer piu

than that existing In tlio uso of tho other
methods because tho repioductlon Is much

No mlo of nbtoluto uulvcisil application
can bo stated however with regard to tho
matter thus produtcd but tlio following
suggestion Is made When tho hand stamp
Is used upon tho matter Inclosed or upon
a tag or circular aicompanylng tho matter
and It lefers to tho matter itself or Its
price width weight or quality it will
usually appear that tho reproduction of the
hand stanip may pioperly bo classed at

of personality Hut when tho reptoduction
refers to a subject not accompanying it and
furnishes infuimailou icgaidlug tho fume
It will probably consist of matter personal
to tlio party using or receiving It Thus
the uso of u hand stamp upon mcichaudiso
consisting of papor or upon tags attached to

thoirtlcloltbelfand bo intended that all

of women and girls began to arrive about

clambered up tho ladders with tlio hod

crowded Thoso who had gained admission
wero tho most privileged cinss
Mr Scovillo nnd wife John Clultcau and
a numbor of witnesses wero among tho first

Nothing unusual occurred In bringing

Why thoy wont for you after I left

Capt Tall promised to bco that no harm
camo to him and Oultcau walked out of
tho door of tlio Jail and into tlio van Iu
doing so ho stopped long enough to seothat
lils guard had been Increased expressed
himself satisfied tho door was shut and tho
van camo up to tlio City Hall without re
ceiving moro notico than Is given It on
ordinary occasions
After ho arrived at tlio Marshalls ofllci
ho showed tho cut of tho coat slcove nnd
wat speaking of tho nttempt to kill
Wo nro going to put Jones In tho samo

let you fight it out
No you neednt answered Uultcau

Tho remark brouclit out a general laugh
which seemed to plcaso tho assassin

lultcau and party arrived nt tlio City
Hull about 1 oclock At that tlmo Louisi
ana avenuo wat packed with people They
were orderly but alter ino oventt oi
Satin day especially eager to catch n glimpse
of Oultcau Ho was taken from tho van
audhuirleilnlongtho opening formed by
tho police into tlio building
Ho had on tho samo clothing ho wore Sat
urday nnd tho cut In his coat slcovo wat
iilnlnlv visible lulteaus hat was pulled
down over ins eyes nnu no crouencu ciosciy
to Ills guard as they hurried along Onco
in tho building hobrcathed easier llo was
taken at onco to tho Marshals ollicc where
breakfast was served and no ono wat nl
lowed to eco him
In tlio Court room
Coutt was called to order at 1010 oclock
Tho ciowd of spectators it wat observed
was much smaller than usual Oultcau
va3 brought Iu at 1010 oclock Ho
looked nervously over tho spectators as he
entered In his nanus no carrlcit news
papers and wlillo hU handcuffs wero being
removed ho whispered to his guard Ho
shook bauds witli his sitter said n few
wotdt to his lirotlior and men negan writ
ing Ho did not write long but took a
newspaper handed Iilm by Mr Scovillo nnd
began leading n matked artlclo therein
contained with Interest
Mr ltouliiMou AnUn to bo Holloed
Mr lioblnson at 1020 oclock aroso and
said that ho had read an artlclo published
in tho Washington Vost yesterday which
necessitated an explanation from himself
On tlio 2 M of October last ho camo into tlio
caso Ho felt tho responsibility laid upon
him His first move wat to secure a post
ponement of tlio casein order that ho could
close tip somo private affairs
Tills met Mr Scovlllos approval After
terwatd ho mado another application for
delay to secure additional counsel and moro
witnesses Mr SlovIHo was In court and
heard tho motion nnd ho thought that tho
motion wii3 approved Tour days later ho
wat informed that Mr Scovillo had re
quested tho cotut privately not to grant
the motion nnd It was denied It seemed
that when ho had put hit privato practice
iisldo ho might havo been entitled to somo
eonsidctation in this matter
It struck him that Mr Scovlllos nttitudo
toward him was singular and concluded
that ho ought to havo associate counsel
who would work iu harmony with him
Hu had failed In securing such counsel his
motion to that end having been doulcd at
Jlr Scovlllos request Jlr Scovillo had
complained of lack of ctiquetto but ho did
not nercelvu whv Had ho havo known
of tho unpleasantness that was to arlso ho
would liavo iiion askcii to uo renovcu
fiom tho caso Ho hero read from yester
ii ivs lost tho artlclo in which Mr Scovillo
declared that tho malpractice issuo should
bo carried no further nnd that Itoblnson
would bo requested to retire from tho case
This paper had been handed him by a friend
at his homo ill tho county last night Hav
ing seen it in ndvnnco of coming to court to
day ho had had oiuplo opportunity
to como forward to protect his self-respect
and ho concluded to ask to bo re
lieved Mr Scovillo nnd himself had
not been In harmonious relatloiis Mr
Scovillo know that ho proposed to maku a
defense on whatever facts tlio law justified
llo had recently eo announced In open
court and ho thought that Mr Scovillo
understood that ho did not consider himself
precluded fiom making nny legitimate do
Hohadtald nothing to Mr Scovillo on
that subject of inalpractlco siuco Certainly
in this caso tlio defense had n right to tho
facts with ipfoicnco to tho treatment of tho
lrenldcnt Mr Scovillo bat at his sldo dur
ing tlio long ciovi examination Saturday
and continued It going even further by
nskliiL iiiipslious cinhodvinff gloss Impu
tations which had unhealing on tho caso
It was unnecessary for him to bay that ho
wished no further association with such a
n counsel As Jlr Scovillo wat Indispensa
ble to tho defense It wat the speakers de
sirottibo relieved from tho case nnd ho
closed by asking tho Court for nn honornblo
Jllltciill Iiissch JiulKiiietil
It ii an able speech spoko up Uultcau
and I agreo with tho most of It I sym
phatlo with Mr Itoblnson on tho question
of malpractice Ho It got tlio true view
Mr NrolllN Iteply
Mr Scovillo regretted that any dlffercnco
had arisen between the counsel nnd ho ap
preciated tho sacrifices that Mr Itoblnson
had made He was In cotut tho morning
that Mr Itoblnson applied fur nu extension
of time lho Court had mado an order
Kcttlni tho hcarlnc for tho 1 Itti of Novcm
her and expecting tlio trial to tnko placo at
that time ho had suhpienacd witnesses from
all over tho United Slates nnd they wero on
their way to this city Ho did go to tho
court privately and say under existing
circumstances ho did not sco how the trial
could bo postponed Ho might havo mado
this statement publicly but ho did not
want n rupture with his associate In the
case Iu asking fur additional counsel Mr
Itoblnson had dono so without consulting
him and ho could not help thinking that it
wat not professional
JDecldcdly unprofessional Interrupted
lio still said Mr Scovillo until I
get through
continuing mo spcaKcrsam ovcryiniiig
proceeded well until last Saturday when
Mr lioblnson made lho cross examination
of Dr liilss It wat then indicated that
malpractice was to bo set up at n defense
I disapproved of It I said that It must
stop or I would retire from tlio case 1 had
said sometime slnco that this defenso would
not bo allowed and I repeat it It was
ttufortunato that tho counsel should dlflcr
but it had been luavoldublo
Sir Itnlilnson is Ilonornlily Ills
Jttdgo Cox Mild that tho thanks of tho
Court wero duo to Mr Itoblnson for tho
promptness with which ho had responded
to tho request of the Court when assigned
n politico Knl now that thn nentleinan
left Important business when ho camo Into
tho case no nan seen iur several uays
that tlio position of Mr lioblnson was an
unonviablo one ami no was constrained
under tho circumstances to glvo Mr Itob
lnson a most houorablo discharge Mr
Scovllle ho was satisfied had mastered tlio
caso and probably would bo able to get
along without assistance
Air scovillo stated mat no wouiii not uo
left entirely alone at ho wat expecting
overy day to hnvo additional counsel
CiultcnuN Tnoorleis
I wish broko out Guitcau to say ono
word on tlio question of malpractice Wo
do not intend to mako it a defense Hut
mv theory of this inalpractlco is just this
that when tlio physicians gnvoout about
July 25 that tho President was getting
better and thereafter death occurred It did
not result from tho shooting but tho treat
ment of tho physicians I want this lo go
on record so that it can go upjto tho Court
iu Unuc with my caso Tho Deity has
taken my caso in chargoaud will sco that I
am treated right Ho lias dono well so far
Tlic Testimony Ilrsiuncil
Surgcon Ocncral Joseph K llarncs was
the first witness called to day Ho testi
fied that ho saw tho President nt tho depot
and was present at the autopsy at llbcron
Tlio wound wat n mortal ono and occasioned
tho deatli of President Garfield
No cross examination
Dr Joseph J Woodward surgeon United
States army testified that ho wat ono of
the attending physicians on tlio President
until September G Ho wat present nt tho
autopsy Tho wound iu hit judgment

of tho President
Daniel S Lamb assistant surgeon United
States army testified that ho mado tho
autopsy on tbo body of Ocu Garfield tho
exam nation s uoweu inai no men oi a
shot wound ho had mado an examination
and so fur as ho could learn there was no
caso of Injury to that oxtcnt where the
man had recovered ho considered it a
mortal wound
fTho witness here oxhiblted tho bullet
taken from tho body of tho President and
it was shown to tho jury It wat iu the
samo condition at when ho took it from tho
body of tho President
No cross examination
District Attorney Corkhillsuld that there
wero two moro points to bo touched upon
by tho Government and then they would
rest Ono was that llbcron was In Moiv
mouth County iu tho State or Now Jersey
nnd tho United States
His Honor said that tho Court would nko
cognizance of that fact
Ol Corkhlll said that the other point
was that tho depot In which tho President
was shot is on ground tho property of the
United States and In which tlio Govern
ment had Kolo title
Mr Scovillo said that ho would accept
that as a fact
District Attorney Corkhill then stated
that tho Uovcrnment would rest
The llcfiiiso Opens
Mr Scovillo hero requested that Oullcau
lie allowed to address tho jury Ho said
that it was not n usual practice but inas
much as tlio Court had promised to grant
tho prisoner tho privilege ho preferred that
It bo accorded now Tlio prisoner could ad
dress tho jury now nnd ho would follow

Guitcau If tlio Couit please I dont

Mr Scovillo Stand up Guitcau they
can hear you better
Guitcau firmly No thank you I
prefer sitting down
Tho audlcnco laughed at this at Gill
leans motlvo In remaining seated was
elearlv evident
Continuing Guitcau said I would
rather prefer If tho Court pleases to net at
advisory counsel in this caso Interjecting a
remark or a correction onco Iu awhile
Laughter My address published last
Monday In Tin Ciutio will servo the pur
poso of an address to tho jury
I Hu mi uo Net Siieeili

not true My idea of correcting misstate
ments is to do it wlillo It is hot and not
after waiting a week for It to digest I am
much obliged to Your Honor nnd tho coun
sel for tho courtesy extended In this In
vitation to address tho Jury I havo no
set sneecll to Innko
Guitcau licro leaned back iu hU chair
with nn nir of ono who bclloved that ho had
Just mado somo great sacrifice
Mr Ncotllic H Areuiiuin
Mr Scovillo after arranging to deliver n
part of ills address to day and to concludo
to morrow then at 11 oclock began his ar
gument to tho jury Uo started out by
complimenting tho Uovcrnment for tlio rapid
progress mado in their case aud said that
tho main point at Issuo wat not that tho
President had been shot and died from tho
effects of tlio shot lint It was was tho
Win fuiiiillll il tlio Driil IltHimii
wat ho rational and accountable Mr
Scovillo maintained that tlio Government
had devoted unnecessary time In establish
ing their caio All that they should hnvo
dono would have been proving lho fjet of
tho shooting nnd death by Secretary Illnlno
and Dr Illist Ho supposed though that
tlio Government wanted to work up nil tho
sympathy possible Ho wanted simply n
fair mid Impartial verdict on tho
point of Insanity It had been Impossible
to secure a Jury of men who had not
formed previous opinions on this caso but
ho bclloved that thlt lurv was an unpre
judiced one nnd If they found that tlio
prisoner was guilty nl muriicr or
insane ho wauled their honest opin
ions at to facts They would
not lio held rctpiinslblo lor results They
would only havo to render their ftir Im
partial vcullctj tlio law would do tho
rest As to tho evidence witnesses
would bo presented who would
pobahly to soino extent contradict
each other When theso wltiicsrcs
testify It would be tho jurys duly to watch
them closely and nolo their demeanor and
glvo duo weight to what they said With
rcfercuco to tho
ipcrl Witnesses on lusnnlly
ho said they would bo mott likely to
contradict each other as they would testify
of what they knew of tho defendant nt
different timet ami places Exports wouiu
ho Introduced becauto oullnary pcoplo wero
not competent to handlo such questions
Their testimony was important it wouni
not bo Ilka other matters that tho Jury
could too nnd feel but win n matter that
many of them know nothing about and
would require their closest attention
when theso questions como before thojiiry
nnd tho Governments expert witnesses will
bo ealicd iu rebuttal they would bo likely
to contradict what tho experts for tho
defenso say Tho Government experts
were paid ollicers They might or might
not bo Induced to testify beciuso they were
nnld Not ono of tlio experts for tho
defenso had oven so much nt his expenses
paid Hut ho did not wisli to bay that tho
Government otpcrts would bo influenced
by tlio pay they received ho simply desired
to placo tho circumstances at they stood
before tho jury Jlr Scovillo referred to
Tlu Attempt Snturility to Kill
and tho sympathy expressed publicly for
tho man who had fired tho shot and of tho
money subscribed for Ids defense ThatT
mans motlvo was evident Jlr Scovillo
continued but yet ho Is bclloved to bo In
sane Indeed that It tho public belief
Ho believed however that tho cxpcrlt
would testify according to their honest con
victions regardless of future consequences
to their professional hiicccss lio had
laborcd under great hardships In securing
tlio opinions of men on this case Two
thirds of tho letters lio had received wero
marked btrictly confidential and accom
panied by a request that tho writers name
ho not made public It was evident that
Icureil tho I iiIiIIp Ostracism
that would follow what they had said In
favor of tho prisoner Ho really thought
that tins caso should hnvo becu postponed
until public prcjudlco had in part subsided
Jlr Scovillo also referred to hit iuox
nerienco nt u criminal lawyer and tho
limited time lie had had to prepare for
coming to trial
IIo dd not however aslc any invoisun
that account ho merely sought nn honest
verdict from tlio jury based upon tho facts
which ho would present to tho best of hit
ability IIo warned them of tlio strength
of tiio defense which ho said would provo
an almost Impregnable wall against tho
claim of murder set up by tho Govern
Jlr Scon lllc at 1110 oclock asked that
tho caso bo carried over until to iuorrow
Thlt request tho Court granted and when
tho grand jury had entered and reported ns
mentioned elsowhcre Guitcau wa3 re
moved from tlio court room
