CASE CONTINUED. The Prendergast Trial Adjourned Till Tuesday. Attorney's for Both Sides Not Prepared—Objects to Being H»nged on His Birthday. . M1KXPKROA8T OKTS KXCITKU. CHICAGO, Murch 24.-The trial thatis to delermiue the mental condition of Patrick Kugene 1'rendergiiht, Mayor Harrison's murderer, sot for 10 o'clock this morning, WOK continued until Tuesday morning, owing to the absence ill Hot, Spring* of A. S. Triule, who had I.een retained a.s counsel by the family of the late mayor, and Assistant State's Atlorne.y Todd. who conducted tho original trial, being at present engaged in a murder case:. i'rc'iieleiryaM CrcuU'H it Scrno In Court. The elelay e)£ the inquiry was not at all saiisi'ai'tory to I-'remlergast, who. desp'.te tho efforts of three bailiffs, mounted a chair and harangued the court for some minutes. He saiel that unless the eourt prolonged the date of the: oxccuti-m beyond April U, which happened to bo his birthday, he objected to any delay of the inquiry and was prepared to proceed. The pl«:a of insanity hj declared had again been set up regardless of his consent, and references made by his counsel to his mental condition threw tho prisoner into furious rage. "My only plea is justification and truth," he said. "Wo luive no desire to keep anything in the dark." A L«?ul Novelty. This trial might almost bo called a legal novelty. State's Attorney Kern huid Friday that, so far as he knew, it had never been resorted to in the state of Illinois before. l!ut Luther Laitin. Mills, who as state's attorney in 1885 had bette-r reasons for recalling it, was able to furnish one precedent. This was tlie case of James Dacev, who murdered Alderman (Jiiynor. Dacey took a change of venue.! to Mullenry county. Mr. Mills prosecuted the case and Daeey was convicted ai:d sentenced to be hanged. The usual writ of error to the supreme court followed, and the sentence: of the court below was affirmed, l!ut some timo before: the diy of execution Judge T. 1). Murphy, the prisoner's counsel, filed in court an »11idavit that Daeey had become insane since he wits nentenccd, and moved for the impaneling of a jury to determine his condition. The jury was impaneled and the issue was duly tried, Hut the verdict was against Daeey, and he \vas hunged at the appointed time. With this exception it is doubtful if the process invoked by Mr. Gregory for 1'render- gast's deliverance was cfcr brought into requisition in the Unite.d States. Ijivr ii Half Century Old. The negleot of this potent remedy is remarkable for several reasons. It is agreed, on all sides, to be an indispensable safeguard of justice in regard to human life. It has been in use in England for centuries, and has withstood every attempt to abrogate it. Hut.strang- est of all, it has been provicleel for in tho laws of Illinois ever since 184"), and possibly for over fifty years. Considering that the proceeding is so susceptible of abuse, is 1 is regarded as remarkable that it has been resorted to only twice in fifty years for the purpose o< cheating- justice. Point* to Un Settled. The trial will bo of • extraordi-. nary interest and importance fon the reason that, whiles its legality is conceded, the dilterent steps in the procedure have all to be determined without any clear guide from the books. No one e:an say authoritatively whether it is a civil or a criminal proceeding, though that fact determines n dozen others which may decide the fate of the prisoner. It is not clear whether the jury should c&nsist of twelve men or of six men, oneof whom is a physician, as in insane casea There is nothing- to show whether tho court can set aside the verdict of the jury und grant a new trial. Worse than all this, there uro no laws for the safe detention of the prisoner, if adjudged in- fianf, in an asylum, no law for sentencing him to any particular asylum, und no legal process provided by which to watch for his recovery, determine in a legal manner that he is Bane again, and turn him over to the sheriff for execution. Stutn Attorney Kern'i Petition. In an interview Stated Attorney Kern, consulting, a» ho spoke, with his assistant, Mr. Knight, said: "The people oJ tho Bt»to of Illinois and my- sdrlmvu no interest In Iho cxucutiou ot Innocent pcoplo- Tbercforo I shall do my duty In th« Prondercoit case wllhejut the 8ll)rlite»t tltternes* or ambition for a victory.

Attorney Gr«Jt"ry'« Views. Attorney Gregory was uot so ready as Mr Kern'to express nn opinion on the questions of procedure involved In the trial. The only opinion he would express about it was that ho was in- dined* to «<fard the trial w a finality. With' reference to tne disposition of Prendergast in case he should be adjudged insane, Mr. Gregory said he did not believe he would be confined in an insane asylum. Ho thought he would bo sent to the penitentiary and remain there until he became sane or died. If at any time it was found that he was sane he would be executed under the original sentence, THURSTON MAKES DENIAL.

It is not confined to the halls of congress, where public men arc deploring the moral effect of sueh a mobilization, of vagrants in the very shadow of the capitol, but Washington housewives are gathering the children in from the streets and preparing to close their doors during Coxey's encampment. Ee- ports received here from along the line of march describe Coxey's recruits as being, for the roost part, dangerous- looking tramps, whose presence would create terror in any orderly community. Quiet preparations are being made by the district police and militia to hold Coxey's band well in hand while they are here.
