cranks , two of whom ho understood
liinl been nrioMcd thU morning : that
ho was in tbo hands of the couit , and
that any one attempting to do him
harm would be shot down.
Judge Portur resumed hisargnnient
at live tuiimte.s past 10. Ho referred
to the fact that the piisoner , us usual ,
opened court , anil then roitor.itod the
stati'iiuMit of yesterday tlnit the do

lulotit of | ) i rputuating the sham , but
the jmv will probably learn that Giiit-
eau was a li-ir and murderot from the
beginning , and by culture a moral
Further along , Guitenu interrupted
and called Judge Porter a "wine bib-
blor" and asserted that Attorney-
General j\lacAreagh \ did not think him
guilty. "Thou , " said Judge Porter ,
"Whon 1 tell you , gmitlomoii of the
jury , that MacVengh himself tnld mo
his wish and that of the president and
t tie cabinet , you may judge whether
MuoVeagh dipped his hands in Gar-
field's blond. " Porter said if the at
torney general sent him word to stop
the trial heonld bo as dumb as the
dead Garlieldorastmomurdoror would
be when the court hud pronounced
the sentence which would follow the
verdict. Porter referred to ono pub
lic statement of the prisoner , which
Guitean and Seoville claimed contain
ed his lirst declaration of divine in
spiration , and said the document con
tained nothing of the kind.
Scovillo objected to the introduc
tion of the alleged contentsof the doc
ument not in evidence , and was uns
tained by the court. Scovillo also ob
jected to Porter's citation of the de
cision in the Colunan case in Now
York , and Porter handed up the law
to the court.
Porter next paid attention to the
people charged by Guitoau and his
counsel its responsible for the death
of Gariiold , reciting the list , which in
cluded a president , an ox-prosidont
nnd Mrs. Gariiold , Mr. Rlaino nnd
Senator Conkliug , John II. Noyos ,
nnd the president's ' own father and
relatives , and the press of the coun
try. Porter also ridiculed thonti
tempt to drag in the Ohisago conven
tion as the assassin , and said : "The
man whoso blistered tongue inado the
chanzo murdered Gariiold na ho would
a calf. " Porter eulogized the records
of Grant and Conkliug and Arthur as
Porter continued : "Arthur was
not nindo president by Guitoau'n net ,
but by the votes of the poopjo , and he
would have boon president if Gariiold
had troil on an orange peel and fell
and killed himself ; but instead , ho
trod on a rattlesnake and the snaku
marked his destruction. " Porter
ter next miido the atiito-
mnnt that Garfipld had paid
after being shot his murderer was
irresn msiblu because insane , and pro
ceeded to show ho did Bay to Mrs.
Edaon ho could never pardon a man
for such a crimo. He told the jury
hit they had been told they were
empiiroiH and kiiiL's , etc. , nnd eon Id
over-ride n rule of thu court , but it
wai not time.
At 12 recess was taken for half an
After recess Porter commented on
lint conduct of thu prisoner in court ,
and said no man there feared death as
he did.
Giiileau interrupted by saying that
Porter wan " .i liar , and a mean and
low Hconndn 1 , ard God would nond
him below. "
Porter rung the changes on this before -
fore the jury and proceeded to recall
thu ruling of tliu court regarding the
responsibility of thu nssasiin at thu
time of thu shooting , and that if ho
know the dilleronco between right and
wrong , then ho was under thu law
Porter 'vent on. "Ho was a good
man , a thcologimi , but ho did not
want to go to Paradise. Ho spent
nix wouks planning the murder of thu
president and lying plans for his own
lafoty. He neglected no precaution
for his own safety , unless it WAS the
lufuiiBo of insanity , and that did not
larry long. Hcovillo saw him two
lays after the shooting , and since
.lii'ii the press hax been filled with this
den of iniunity , and that without its

enid Porter.
"That's a lie , " concludnd Guiteau ,
"Such people , " said Potter , "know
bust about his brain , Shu said ho
w n never insane , and HO said hia own
brother , while his counsel did not
dare to ask his ulster what aho
thought. " llo then argued the testi
mony of the exports vraa in favor of
the prisoner's sanity , and reviewed
the testimony of Mrs. Scovillo , con
tending parts in her statement were
silly evidences of Guitoaifs insanity.
"Admitting , for Mio sake of argu
ment , the innanity of the prisoner , "
said Pertir , "let lunatics learn they
can commit murder with impunity ,
and General Sherman enn't collect
troops ouoiigh to protect us. Hut he
was not insane. 1 don't deny his
claim to bo the most cold blooded
murderer of 0,000 years , 'whoso shed-
doth man's blood , by man so shall his
blood bo shed. " "
"That was two thousand years ago , "
said Guiteau.
"Vou hear the gospel of Guiteau"
wont on PorUr , "nnd ho expects thn
jury to endorse it. " Counsel then
proceeded to point out the fallaoy of
a mun inheriting murderous insanity
from n cnnity that worshipped God
to his dying day. "Tho prisoner's in
finity was moral insanity , begotten of
liis father , the devil. Insanity was a
: liseaso of the brain which in his onse ,
nould hiivo boon cured sooner if an
oppottunity had boon ollorod for him
to put that bull-dog ballot in the back
of the president. "
Judge Porter now expects to con
clude his argument to-morrow in time
for the court to deliver his charge and
the easogo to the jury bpforonight.
Now that his end is near , the pris
oner's fiveo bear.s evidence of great
anxiety nnd his interruptions grow

HKUUS , January 21. A tumultu '
ous discussion ensued in lleicl'istag ,
the occasion being thu thiid reading
of the budget oil royal rescript.
Prinou lUsiuarck , in explaining the
provisions of thu rescript , said it was
not intended to create a now consti
tutional law but simply to prevent obscurities -
scuritios regarding the old , insisting
on Hovereii'ii rights which , ho said ,
wuio apart from ministerial preroga
tives and could in no way be inter
fered with by law.
Doiails of the scene in lloioliAtag
are as follows : Hurr Haunol , pro
gressist , in his speech declared that
the rescript presented pure absolu
tism and is intended to cover the re
sponsibilities of iiiinisturH by the
king's will. Prince Itismarck , facing
the left in replying to the iiboyo , said
"If you buliovo that the ministers in
tend to cover themselves against par
liamentary speeches by the king's
person you err. You overrate your
selves if you reproach mo with cow
ardice after my lone services to my
country and it should bring n blush of
shaino to your face to limko such as
sertion. " Great uproar followed the
princo's speech. Herr Haonol
was protesting that that
wio ricru- fancy of tho\.cliancollor. \
Prince Bismarck retorted , "No. "
Iferr Hnonel denied oven hinting nt
such expression as that made by the
prince , and presumed that the princu
had invented , it. This increased the
disturbance the "Infa

sprang to the foot of the tribune nnd

him , nnd said ho could not redress
the injury by simply denying , and
thereupon left the houso. The debate
