Judge Porter pro to insist upon Ins view and declined liiat the time had conic when in tho of tho American people and on of tho in the conn ho foil it his duty to demand tho prisoner bo remanded to

Saturday that the pris oner bo tho dock Scoville to speak when Judge Gox said Lot mo know first if counsel desire to be heard upon thb motion to tho prisoner to the dock Judge then proceeded to speak on motion He tho time como whon everyone presold satisfied that tho prisoner was perfectly sane in re to his behavior and amenable to tho rules as other prisoners In tho case of General Sickles who was tried iu tins court for murder the judge refused lo deviate from tho rule although ho was u distin lawyer and member of Congress The time and ho srit iu tho prisoners dock during his trial said ho would assent to any proposition which might bo doomed No one had suffered more ho liad from tho prisoners behavior it is because you are a jackass on this case If I had de counsel i shouldnt havo any occasion ror remarks You avo doing well enough on your theory but your theory is allo loo narrow You got brains enough for case Colonel Hoed denied the assumption that the sanity had boon established sro human knowledge could fathom the workings of an insane mind and humanity dictate if reasonable doubt should lhat leniency be extended toward bim ie thought an admonition from the court vould suffice Corkhill insisted upon the removal of the to the dock nud the removal from him of the special who i voro uot regular attaches of tho court thai ie should bo kept in tho dock with no other protection is accorded trembling with angor or appre shouted out to shoot trial which without tho interposition of tho prisoner would terminated throe weeks ago Tho lime now comes whon the law must maku its appearance iu this court room and whon tho man who pretends lo be a maniac ouu no longer sit id counsel tiblo and exorcise Iho privileges which yon would accord to a member of tho American bar The court then rendered his decision It was hardly necessary to say that of the prisoner was iu persistent violation of order mid decorum In tho beginning ho omy methods could bo resorted to to suppress his disorder were such as must infringe tho const rights of tho prisoner and was a conclusive mont against thorn Until Saturday last no other method had proposed whon this proposition which ho had already had in mind was submitted It had been the impression shared by tho court and counsel that prisoners conduct and lan guage in court would bust indica tion of his mental and moral nud contribute largely to tho enlightenment of the nud jury on Iho question of his re sponsibility It was on tho express desire of the District At torney that the court hid allowed such latitude of conduct in order to furnish Iho experts an opportunity of iling nosing Iho prisoners cane As it now appeared the opinions of exports had boon largely founded on Iho exhibitions which had place on die rial and if hud contributed to enable those exports to roach their conclusions it would be a complete vindication of view of the District At torney as lo tho i roper course to be pursued At tins of Iho trial however this object seemed to have been Tho trial was now approaching its close and exports had ample opportunity to make up their judgments and pronounce thoin before the court and jury II was incumbent on ho court now lo restraint as Iho circumstances of ihn case admitted and which would con duce to tho orderly conduct of license Tho prisoner had a right o hoar he testi mony of tho witnesses Ile could not bo gag ged or sent out of Iho court Tho proper placo for a prisoner on trial was on the dock could only come within the bar to bo arraigned and to receive son If the Court granted him Mm luge of ing beside his it was a privilege which could be withdrawn summa rily he prisoner had an undoubted right lo his own counsel or appear by counsel he could nol both rights simultaneously for having accepted counsel Iho hud waived his right to appear as such in person On consideration of all circumstances tho Court thought the mo tion would havo been granted and that tho prisoner should ho placed in tho dock but ho did not moan that tho prisoner should be exposed lo any danger lie should havo tho fullest protection Prisoner speaking and us though ho dreaded being placed in tho dock was filled at the lime with spectators To settle tho matter 1 will sit quietly hero Will it not bo satisfactory if I keen quiet and slay here If I sit in the dock f may be worse Tho court directed tho marshal to clear dock and the prisoner Dur ing confusion and noise incident to this movement the prisoner exclaimed in a sub dued I havo no to going to he dock if your honor nays HO Tho Court 1 say so simply in Iho hope of keeping yon quint 1 move that the court room be cleared If I am going into Iho dock I want the court room cleared Tho prisoner having boon placed in tho dock and quiet having boon restored Porter said It is to bo borne in mind that tho chimera which scorns to haunt the prisoner has no foundation Ho is in no danger ox copt from Hie hangmans rope and so long as nn of tho law stands him no man will imperil that in the discharge of his duty by a shot at tho prisoner Applause The Court directed tho marshal to place he prisoner whore lid could have a full view of Iho witnesses Tho District Attorney iu reply to Bco villos speech stated ho had been opposed lo having any extra guards around the prisoner IIo in allowing liim to stand his trial liko any other man No violence would come to him auy more than to a crim inal charged with a smaller He did not wish any special protection around tho prisoner nor did ho think it necessary It was no
