that ifno allusion could bo made lo what was claimed by tho prisoner lo be the actuating motive or inJlufciice that led to the act the whole defense would bo wiped away at a single stroke Judge Porter pro ceeded to insist upon Ins view and declined liiat the time had conic when in tho imuio of tho American people and on bohnJf of tho Novorumonl in the tidcral conn ho foil it his duty to demand tho

prisoner was perfectly sane in re to his behavior and amenable to tho Miinio 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 uishol lawyer and member of Congress The time and ho srit iu tho prisoners dock during his trial ScoTille said ho would assent to any proposition which might bo

Corkhill insisted upon the removal of the jrisouor to the dock nud the removal from uoinid him of the special policomou who i voro uot regular attaches of tho court thai ie should bo kept in tho dock with no other pooitil protection tliau is accorded anolher rirfoner Guitodii trembling with angor or appre icusiou shouted out Yonwant to shoot trial which without tho interposition of tho prisoner would Jiavo 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 rJie 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 ihocoiidncl of the prisoner was iu persistent violation of order mid decorum In tho beginning ho omy methods vrhieh could bo resorted to to suppress his disorder were such as must infringe tho const ituiional rights of tho prisoner and lluil was a conclusive urgu mont against thorn Until Saturday last no other method had bcou proposed whon this proposition which ho had already had in mind was submitted It had liiUiorlo been the impression shared by tho court and counsel that llio prisoners conduct and lan guage in court would atlord tlio bust indica tion of his mental and moral charactoi nud contribute largely to tho enlightenment of the cotirf nud jury on Iho question of his re sponsibility It was thoriloro 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 tidcon place on die rial and if tiioy hud contributed to enable those exports to roach their conclusions it would be a complete vindication of llio 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 aecoinplishud 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 impotse tiiicli 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 forjolony was on the dock Jlo could only come within the bar to bo arraigned and to receive son tcnco If the Court granted him Mm pnvi luge of fiilf ing beside his it was a privilege which could be withdrawn summa rily he prisoner had an undoubted right lo acliis his own counsel or appear by counsel he could nol exorusu both rights simultaneously for having accepted counsel Iho prmonor 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 quiely and us though ho dreaded being placed in tho dock svhich 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 tlio dock and plaoo the prisoner lieio Dur ing llio confusion and noise incident to this movement the prisoner exclaimed in a sub dued loim I havo no ohjocliou 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 onlccr of tho law stands bosido him no man will imperil that olliccr in the discharge of his duty by firinj 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 bolicvrd in allowing liim to stand his trial liko any other man No violence would
