WASHINGTON , November 21.
Guiteau had u Eullicient escort this
morning , no loss than eight mounted
police being detailed to guard him on
the way to the court. Ito arrived at
the court house as early as 7 o'clock
but at that hour the crowd , number
ing . " 00 people , had assembled. When
lie decended from the van ho showed
evident nervousness. As ho was pro
ceeding up the long opening , lined on
ecah side with people , his teeth chat
tered with iear. llo sped along at an
increased pace , desirous to get out of
the crowd as quickly ia possible.
Arriving within tlio walls of the build
ing , ho uavo a , sii li of relief and aa
hurried up the stairs to await the
assembly of the court , which was
called to cuder at 10:08 : o'clock. There
was a , larger crowd than usual outside
and the sonta were all taken within.
The prisoner waa ushered into court
at 10:12 a. in. Ho looked paler than
usual and like ono who had not slept
well. When ho shook hands with
. -sfc Tra. ScftYillo , nUo naked liim itOW ItU
folt. "I feel well , " said he. Ho
then took up some paper ho had
brought with him and began to read
when the roll of jurors had boon called ,
Mr. llobiiison rose , addressing the
court , and said that an article in yes
terday's Washington Post made it
necessary for him to makea. ptatemcnt
in court. Ho then renewed his as
signment by the court to assist in the
defense , his asking for two weekstime
for prepaiMtKm and his understand
ing that the time was not granted be
cause Mr. Scovillo himself objected to
t. Thia action of Mr. Scovillo had
him to think it best to get an assis
tant counsel , who would not try to
undo privately what ho had sought to
have done publicly. Tin's ho sought
to do , but in vain. But notwithstaii 1-
ing this , ho tried to put up with Mr.
Scovillo'a insults until last evening.
Then ho saw the article referred to ,
which said that Mr. Scovillo had said :
"Ho ( Robinson ) , had been making up
the malpractice pica , against his uisli ,
and that ono or tlio other would have
Icavo case to-day , unless this plou
waa abandoned atonco. " Mr. Uob-
iiiBon said Mr. Scovillo had
talked to him on the subject and had
been informed weeks ago that ho
( Robinson ) to w.iivo no defense possi
ble , but to have all facta brought out
and then adapt or abandon as the
facts , the law and the situation of the
case may warrant. It waa on this
theory that the crosa-examination of
Dr. Blisa was conducted on Saturday
and it wia a legal examination. Mr.
Scovillo made no objection to hia
two hours' examination of this wit-
iics3 , but ho had even promised sumo
questions. Mr. Robinson had not
been in the habit of learning thu ob [
ject of an ns > omto counsel through )
the press , llo c mid no longer HPKJ
ciate with atich a man an 1 a lud to be
relieved. No animadvuiaiuii could
have caused him 11 maku Iho rcquebt
believing that Mr. Sonvillo win abso
lutely necessary fur thy vr.tP.
"I want HY moi'o TJ'jbinaou ' in my
caao , " said Quiteau. At this point
Mr. Seovillo tried to induce him to
keep atill. Guilelu continued , how
ever : "That is mi nblo npevcli , and T
agree with nm&t of it. " Mr , Szovillo
tnen said ho wanted to any u. word or .
two. Ciiiitoau a'/iiin iiitoiitipleil : " 1
side with Mi. Jt-ibinson on this mal ;
practice question ; not wi'.h you" Mr.
Scoviiio. "
' 'Wait until you lioar my speech1 ,
said Mr. Scnvillo. Mr. Scovillo then
review eel Mr. l' < d > inson's action on
the case , and said h < j thought it W.'IB ;
at the least unwise , Mr. Scovillo
said that ho had nothing more to aay
except that ho had not fully made up
hia mind that either ho or
Mr. Ilubinson mint Icavo the
case. The diU'erenco in the torn-
poramontfl made the trouble.
Judge Cox said ho appreciated the
prompt sacrifice uiado by Mr. Robinson -
son when ho was asHi'giied to the cute.
Ho recognized the diEadvantagca
Itobinson had labored under , and par
ticularly since Mr , Scovillo aeomed lo
have mastered the case , Hogavo Mr.
fix Robinson a very honorable discharge
from the caao. Mr , Robinaon then
took a back seat.
Guiteau then made n short speech
h in regard to hia expectation of conn- '
Bel to como , concluding ; ( < 1 am hero
representing the Deity. JIo Imi
taken good care of mo thus far ami 1
am willing to trust Him. " Barnes was then
called. He said ho had been in at
tendance until September 7th ; also in
nttendanbo nt the autopsy. The
wound was mortal from tlio Ant and
was the causeof the death of tl o
Dr. Woodtv'ard was then called.
He also was nri-seitt at the autopsj
In his opinion | ho urosident'a wouit
was mortal from the first and was tli
cause of the president's do.Uh. Tl
same idea was oxprosied by D
Lamb who m.ido the atttoposy , and h
nlso paid ho had never heard of sue
wound proving otherwise than fata
Mr. Scoville asked the gentlomo
no questions ,
Col. Corkhill said thrro wo enl ,
two points remaining , duo waa thu
Klheron wns in Monmouth county N
J. , and the depot whcro tlio ahootin
took place waa on ground helongin
lo the United Static government
Mr. Scovillo admitted those points ; i
facts in the caao. ' ' Col. Corkhill the
slid , "lour honor , the ( jovermen
rests. "
At the rrquest of Mr. Scovill , th
prisoner was bore given permission t
address the jury. Ouitcitii began t
talk aa ho sat in hia chair. Mr. Sco
villo asked him to rise , "Thank you
I don't cire to ttiudup'saidGinteau
" 1 am notbnmd ; to , however , hut
have only ( a moment to talk. 1 du
not expect to bo naked to make
speech to-day. I have no sot speed
prepared , and I don't care to mak
one. I have ono word to say , how
ever , in regard to malpractice ,
only want to have it shown that a
certain times the doctors anid that th
wound won not fatal and that ho wa
out of danger , and that therefore if i
was fatal afterwards tha
the doctors were to blame
I want an intelligent statnmen
of the caso. As my own counsel in tin
case , T shall held the right to maki
corrections when T please and sue !
corrections should bo made while tin
matter is hof. I shall take care tosei
it done , and have , therefore , nospeecl
to make. I am obliged to the court
and counsel for this privilege. I have
no more to pry. "
Mr. Scovillo then rose and said h
should begin his argument , but , afte
reaching a certain point , ho wouh
sk an adjournment. With thia un
del-standing he bu an. Ho rose bofon
tlio jury and addressed them in a con
vocational tone. Ho said , amonj
other things , that ho thought thu de
fense had put in much evidence thai
night well have been left out and the
eloquent speech ot the district attorney
noy had covered much unnecessary
ground. ' 'For instance , " said he ,
"you are not here to try the long suf
ferings of the president or the sorrow
ing widow and children ho loft bo
hind. Wo all feel alike on that ( pies
tion. Wo all know the deep and wide
spread grief. "
At this point Mrs. Scovillo wns
overcome with weeping , and manj
other oyej wore dimmed with tears
Mr. Scovillo went on to say tha
tlio case should be tried as if the
president had been nothing but a la
borer. The only question was whether
the man was murdered by the pris
oner. It makes no matter who held
the president's or who dressoii
the wounda. The position of the
jury was a difficult ono indeed , but
their duty was plain and direct. Ho
then went into an explanation of tin
kind of testimony that might have
been expected as to the responsibility
of the prisoner. Mr. Scovillc
stated to the jury that th-jro
was no doubt that insanity
exports would bo called on
both aides , and m/ doubt dilferont
opinions would bo expressed , but the
question of motive must bo consider
ed in this tiling. Surely experts for
thu defense would not hold their rep
utation much by testifying that they
thought thu prisoner irresponsible and
insane at thu time of thu shooting ;
that the chances wore that when they
go homo they will find some of their
patients going to other hands Surely ,
too , aiich witnesses for the defense
could not bo infiucnccd by the 81.25
per day which the government allowB
them. He had aubp < unaed exports ho
had never seen , and ho inn the
chances of their testifying in the pris
oner's favor. Sonic of them would
no doubt disappoint him. Ho look-
that chance. Mr. Scovillo said that
tha case ouylit to have been postponed
for some time , but ho know it was use
less to ask that , llo was therefore
Joing the best ho coulO. llo called
the attention of the jury to tli . dis-
> .irity of his forces and those of the
pposito side. He asked no favors ,
itut desired it understood that lie was
lot responsible for the failure to gel L
idequato counsel. Hq WA.S mt 1I111B | ,

Lhoy woitid rocojuiisj an irreiiitibln

isked Iho court to adjourn until to-
narrow. Tlu case was then ad
journed , but the audience kept in
.heir Ho.iU for the entrance oftlio
r.ind jury on another c.iao.
A gi'iioral impression prevails that
3Cjvillu's argument thu-j far has bouii
m cllectivo one. Guiteiin kept voty
