overruled the motion for a new trial
for Precdergast soil aenteiH-ed the
assassin to be hanged on March 23.
Aa the court addressed I'rctidergast
and asked him if he had anything to
say why sentence should not be parsed
upon him he a rows to hi feet, tier v
OUhly drew a small sheet of paper,
covered with note, from hla vest
pocket and addressed the court 8
I don't suppose, your honor, that It
will do me any good to say anything
to the court now. I have made no
preparation to say anything in par
ticular. 1 suppose your honor is
under the impression that you have
done your duty. Hut this plea of in
sanity has been set up by my at
torneys without my consent Jtwas
an infamous, adirty and a disreputable
plea and done against my objections.
Now aa for Juror Murray, it is cer
tain to my mind that from the manner
he answered questions be was anxious
to be a luror in this case. There was
something wrong also in regard to
summoning the veniremen. Juror
Larkin came here on a written state
ment, but of course the defendant
had no control over this part of the
court's , work. The Evening News
contained a whole column about it at
the time and it is not necessary for
me to go into it further now. We
had noopnortunity to watch the pro
ceedings in summoning the jurors.
But this is not the question. At
the very beginning of this trial the
court told me my attorneys would at
tend to my case. Nevertheless, they
did not As stated, your honor, be
fore, they set up this infamous plea of
insanity against my will. Hat, your
honor, the issue is, did I do right or
did I do wrong? Did I do my duty or
did I not? Did I do tho will of Hod or
did I not? This point has never been
touched upon and I say it is the only
Issue before the court Of course, if I
did wrong I should bo condemned.
Hut, your honor, if I did right I should
be justified and acquitted.
As for this talk about tho Pueey or
the tiuiteau case tho court all along
ruled that no reference nhotild bo
made to it but ho attorneys for tho
defendant coninucd it throughout
tho trial. As far as these doctors are
eaccerned, they came to mo without
my consent ana without my invita
tion and I did not write them nor
give my consent for them to come and
find out whether I was Insane or not
No doubt tho motives of these men
were humane but it was through tho
connivance of Jailor Morris that they
got into tho jail.
Now, your honor and everybody say
that Harrison was a great and good
man. I deny this. A good man is
generally faithful to his friends, and
llarrison was not. If 1 had been a
good man he would not have been
hostile toward mo.
But this newspaper trust, your
honor. Wo havo been attacked by
this newspaper trust, and if the sen
tence of this court is carried out you
will all bo at the hands of this news
paper trust No man's character or
reputation will be safe. I don't know
what will be the result
fcven while 1 was in your county
ail I was threatened with death.
This man Morris, the jailer there.
Batd to me: "I'll kill you before you
leave this jail, no matter what the
court and bailiffs do with me."
The sheriff of this county is a Re
publican, W'hue my principles aro
Democratic and that is why this is.
Hut the issue, your honor, is whether
laid right or wrong. II thU court
wants to shirk the responsibility in
this case it will not be my fault The
most of tho motions made by the
attorneys for me have been overruled
by the court and that was wrong.
Then there is this grade crossing
Issue. II your honor consents to my
death, to my murder, you also con
Bent to take the lives of these ut-onln
on the infamous gradacroaoiiixn. That
Is what caused me to shoot Harrison,
although 1 had stood by him iu times
I am feeling tmivh better now, your
honor. .My health is much bettor than
when I first went to jail. 1 he terrl
ble food they gavo me there shook me
bhvhieallv and nit-iitallv.
iu this ease I have beet charged of
iHiing vainglorious and a notoriety
seeker. This i not true and it has
been disproved la this trial. Christ

Oaa Will Km Called to Consider a ( banc
ta the Iloaao Kulra.
Vasiiixgto.v, Feb. 20 Representa
tive Uolman of the Democratic caucus
of the Louse will call a caucus at an
early date to consider a change in the
house rules by which members may be
compelled to vote to make a quorum.
The call is in response to a written
request signed by 104 Democratic
members. The request is the direct
result of the uproarious demonstration
in the bouse Thursday.
The name of Mr. Island is not on the
call, for while he is severe in depreca
ting the disorder, he says public opin
ion should rebuke those responsible
for it, and that a change of the rules
is not desirable. The New Yorkers
are also an exception to the delega
tions which have signed the calL
They are not anxious to strengthen
the rules and thus increase the chance
of passage of a bill such as the one
Most of those who have signed are
ready to go to tho extent of counting
a quorum and the only question
among them is now how the quorum
can be counted without subjecting the
majority to tho charge of adopting
what have been termed ''Reed rules."
Numerous plans for strengthening
the rules are under consideration.
The one most generally approved is
to provide that the attention of the
speaker may be directed to the fact
that a member is present and not
voting. Thereupon the speaker may
direct that the member be brought to
the bar of the house and his name be
recorded as present, to make a quo
rum. It is said this obviates the criti
cisms of "lleed rule," in the method
of counting a quorum.
The proposed rule would be guarded
by the formality of bringing members
to the bar of the house where there
would be no question as to their
actual presence. The feeling is so
strong some Democrats are ready to
accept "lleed rules' on the quorum
question without any excuses or ex
Nine Hundred Men in the Missouri
I'rison With Nothing; to Do.
Jeffkhon Citv, Mo., Feb. 20 The
large number of unemployed convicts
in the penitentiary is becoming a mat
ter of most serious concern to the
state, and to add to the dilemma the
receipts of convicts aro rapidly in
creasing and is now greater
than ever before with no prospec
tive diminution. For the last few
days the total number of convicts con
fined in the prison has been about
1,920. Of this number about 000 are
unemployed, and the outlook for
securing them employment is far
from promising. The ' state is not
only losing the labor of these men
and incurring a cost thereby, but en
forced idleness proves detrimental,
both physically and mentally, to the
convicts. When there is no employ
ment for them they must be locked
up in thair cells, and any prison man
will readily say that this means ill
health to the convict and possibly in
sanity. lie form Press Association Onlcers.
