Proceeding* in Ike Eld Okie lb I a
■orolng—Argument cf the Attor
The <-ourt room «m again crowded
this morning, and the uaual number of
ladies were present The space inside
the bar was almost filled with ladles,
and even the reporter's table was aur
rouuded by the fair sex. The jurv w'ere
brought in a few minutes before 10
o'clock looking tired ard weary with
their three days confinement in the
Court House, aud as they took their
seats their names were called and all
Chief Justice Comegys aud Associate
Justices Wootten, Iloustou aud Wales
wero ou the bench, and|a few minutes
after the opening Mr. Hharpley again
addressed the Court and jury lu behalf
of bis client.
He cited a number of authorities to
prove that this was clearly a case of
self-defense, or that under no circum
stances could the crime be anything
greater t han manslaugh ter. H e clai med
that there had not been any
malice showu on the part of
consequently the kllliug was done in
He also submitted a number of points
ou which he asked the Court to charge
the jury, and closed at 11 o'clock.
Attorney-General Gray immediately
opened the cloning argument for the
State hy stating that he did not iutend
to consume a great deal of time iu ex
amining the points of law submitted by
the defense, as he did not think that
anything had beeu shown in the whole
course of the trial to justify a plea of
self-defense. This case is either oue of
manslaughter or some higher degree of
After addressing the Court a few
minutes, aud reviowiug several of the
cases cited by Mr. Sbarpley, he pre
sented a number of points for the con
sideration of the Court, and commenced
hi* argument to the jury.
He said he knew this was a duty that
they as well as himself would gladly
escape. This was a responsibility that
rested on them equally with him, aud
he trusted that they would render a
verdietjt hat would belli accordance with
the evidence, and tie justice both to the
State and the prisoners.
He could not close Lis eyes to the pa
thetic sight presented yesterday, when
the wives of these prisoners sat in front
of the dock with that innocent prattling
child. There was do doubt that the
jury as well a*« himself felt the greatest
sympathy for these unfortunate women,
but they must not allow themselves to
be governed or influenced by sympathy,
but must rentier a verdict in accordance
with the facts. It seems to be the pro
vince of man in this world to bring
sorrows, lo raise up and east
bound to hi
down those w li
the cloHi'st lies.
The different degree* of homicide were
explained by Mr. Gray, ard he Raid
that neither the law or common sense
would or could justify a man in taking
a human life under the circumstance
that Taylor was slain. This prisoner
killed him, and then boast4'<l he had
done it, and now when brought bef
the bar of justice, he asks the jury to
also become participants, aud say he
done it in sell-defense.
Mr. Gray was particularly severe on
Lewis JK. List, aud when he pictured
to the shooting, when it
that he had told
Dean's dishes rather than let her take
them out, he denominated him ana
"petty household tyrant."
He did not think, under the circum
stances, that Le himself would have
acted as calmly as Taylor did. He went
to this house and stood in the presence
of the man who had struck his niece,
and when he asked that she lie allowed
to remove her goods, the old mao List
told him that all the goods in the house
belonged to bis sou, and George Taylor,
thinking that he might be wrong, said :
Well, the goods aiu't mine, and I
won't, have anything to do with them"
and weut out.
Rut he did not go awav; tlm speaker
wished he had, but he did not ihink
that he would have esteemed hi in as
much if he had. He went to the corn
er, and told officer Walker that he ex
pected t here would be a tight, and he
wanted him to be around and arrest all
hands. He done this, becausein his ig
norance of the law, he thought that
then the matter would he settled.
The longer he studied over the matter,
the more he felt the injustice that had
been done his niece, ami he nturne l to
the house and called List out. lie asked
him to let her have the few articles that
belonged to her, aud lie replied, "if you
will pay me seven dollars and a half,
she can take them, and Taylor finding
that, he could not get the goods,said, " I
don't want you to strike that girl
again," aud List made some reply,
when Taylor struck him, but he did not
use a pistol, a club, or any kind of a
deadly weapon; he only used the wea
pon nature had given him.
He did not blame old Mr. List for
