He then read a follows! First, the legal test of responsibility where Insanity Is set up by tho defeuso for tho alleged act Is whether tlV accused at tho tlmo of com mitting tho act alleged knew the difference be tween right and wiong In respect to such act, that to, if ho knew what ho was doing aud that what ho was doing was contrary to the law of the k id, he Is rcsponstt lc Gultcau--I didn't, because my free agency wa destroyed. Second. If the accused knew what ho was doing, and that what ho was doing wai contrary to the law of the land, It constitutes no defense, even If It wcro true that when he committed tho act ho really believed ho wa thereby pro ducing n public, benefit, or carrying out an Inspiration of illvlnn origin or approval, such belief would not afford any excuse, nor would such excuse bo nffotded by the fact that In the commission of the act he was Impelled by n depraved moral sense, whether Innato or ac quired, or by an evil passion, or tndlffcrcnco to moral obligation. Oultcau All of which Is false. Third. Insanity would, however, constitute the defense, If by reason of a diseased tnlndthe accused at tho time of committing tho act charged, did not know what ho was doing, or If be did know It, that what he was djlng,'was contrary to law. Gulteau I had no f holco In tho matter. Fourth. The only evidence In the present case tending to show nn Irresistible Impulse to commit the sulcldo Is tho claim of tho acuscd that his free agency was destroyed by Ids al leged conviction that the death of tho Presi dent wa required for the good of tho Ameri can people, and was divinely Iniplrcil. But such a conviction, even If it really existed, could not afford any excuse when the party knew what ho was doing, nnd that It was con trary to law. No mcrb delusion or error of Judgment, not even n fixed belief that what Is prohibited by law is commended or approved by divine authority. Gulteau God' law Is higher than man, anyhow: It can exempt the accused from the responsibility of breaking the law to have such nn effect that the commission of the act charged must have been the result of Insano delusion which wn the product of the disease, nnd of such force as to deprive the accused of tho de cree of reason hCCCSml V In dktllll-llLli tuitlreen right nnd wrong In respect of tho act, so that at the time of committing the act ho either did nt know what he was doing, or, If he did, that the net wa wrong or contrary to the law of the land.
