tlx re wa* little of fhe tenratlonal In that
last night, though the witnesses for th*
defense testlfbd very ktrongly In favor of
the accused. Kom*’ of th* adtnesse* on
j both elde* were evidently prejudiced. *
peculiarity of the testimony being Ihe
extreme exactness of th# witnesses In tea-
I tlfylng to some matters and their very
defective memories when questioned on
other p dnlg
There was a good crowd In attendance,
th-re being a number of Ihe member* of
the regiment present a* spectators, be
sides those on duty with the court-mar
tial. The session begun at # o'clock, and
lasted until II:*> It was then continued
until Thursday night at S o'clock.
Ten wltneeses were examined In all.
seven for the state and three for the de
fense. The testimony of some was of
only slight Importance. Private J. B.
Smith was the first witness. He was
the special sentinel placed over Ctsrpl
llarrle when the latter was under arrest
at IxMilsvllle. Among other thlnga he
said, that Copt. Wilson told him he would
tiring him up ammunition, and that he
aas to use It If necesaary. If Harris at
tempted to escape Later, when Capt.
Wilson came back, he said thst he had
forgot ten the ammunition, but that he was
sorry that he had forgot It. The witness
said Harris had on allotw the morning
after his arrest, this being one of the
points which seems to be very much hi
dispute. The witness admitted that he
had had trouble with Harris at one time
Cor pi John O. Small testified that be
was present when Harris was arrestted
He had heard Harris call Lieut Rarthel
mess by vile name In the latter's ab
sence. Lieut. Barrow mode the point,
that a* Lieut. Rarlhelmess was In uni
form. and on duty during the entire trip
the fact that Harris had cursed him
while he was not present, did not relieve
him of the charge of cursing and abusing
anV>fficer while on duty.
Private E. C. Penfleld. who wa* also a
sp-clal guard over Harris, testified to the
latter's escape by Jumping out of a win
dow In his underclothes while under ar
r st. Harris had asked to be allowed to
walk across the room lo speak to som**
men at a window, but the witness had re
fused this [permission his orders being
not to let Harris leave the cot Harris
walked across to the window, on the pre
tetise of wanting lo speak to some on*
; there, though ordered 10 come back. In
stead of obeying the order he Jumped out
; of Ihe window and told Ihe guard goodhy
Private E. C. rilrasor. Jr. of ('ompanv
■ D. testified to hearing Harris apply the
I vile epithet referred to Lieut, (larthel
mess. Private W. H. Bmlth. 8r , had atart
ed to r-s'nt ihls Insult to the lieutenant
when Bergt Murphy Intervened.
Private 44’ H Stniih. 8r . explained Ihe
1 rouble between Carpi. Harris and him
| self. He had simply resented Harris’ re
mark roneernlng the absent lieutenant,
| and had no further Interest or prejudice
In the matter.
Private IV H Smith, Jr., testified to
| Harris' obstreperous conduct on several
; occasion*, while he. the witness, was 0.1
Khard In quarters
Serirt L. J 44'8ktnson testified that he
wsa the corporal who took charge of the
relief to which Harris had been assigned

jto take charge himself It was also
btougth out that the witness had heart

| Here the state rested Its cose, nnd the
defen#o begun <t* testimony Corpt H
A. Jeffrie* of Ownpany I„ was the first
witness for the defense, and testified
strangly In Harris behalf He testified
positively thst Harris was absolutely on
time on Ihe owaston of his arrssi for be
ing tools slating that the clock struck •
the time for Harris to begin hie tour of
duty, fully three mtnutee after Harris
hod reached the top of the steps,
nnd was arguing with Lieut Rarthel
mess h to whether or not be was on time
Hsrrl*. he stated, waa not at alt disorder
ly hoI was perfectly respectful at nil
times. Latte, when recalled to the stand
by Capt Cann, Jeffries testified with
gnat profit!vena** that Harris was per
fectly sober at the time of his arrest.
Private Mendel of Company H corrob
orated Corpl Jeffries' testimony as 10 Har
ris' respectful conduct and sobriety The
wifi ees also testified that whep he went
ur to the mom on one occasion after Har
ri*' arrest ihe latter complained of being
hungry. He volunteered to act as guard
and to take Harris down to dinner, and
wa* permuted to do *O.
Fireman D P. Walker, who accom
panied the Blues to Louisvttle. though
not a member of, the company, wa* on
the stand for som* time. He testified
'hat he had mode the trip under an un
derstanding with Copt. 44’llson hy which
he was to pay the same rat# as the other
member*. |]fi, and was to take part In
the parade*, after which he was to be re
lieved from further duty as he and one
or two others had arranged to extend
their trip to Chicago. Walker said that
he expected to perform duly while with
the company, hut claimed there wo* no
understanding to Ihls effect. However,
when Capt Wilson undertook to put him
on extra duty for six hours. Including
the charge of the dormitory and the
guarding of Harris, because he had re
mained nway from Ihe quarters, he re
belled and left the quarters, only return
ing a day or two later when he turned tn
hi* uunlform and equipment as had been
agreed upon. Hl# Instruction as 10 Har
ris from Capt. Wilson were not to allow
the prisoner to leave Ms cot.
Walker teetlfled ie to a conversation he
had with Capt Wilson about Ihe Harris
matter, after Ihe return to Savannah, to
the effect that Capt 4V!l#on, |n speaking
of Harris, had applied a vile epithet to
him. and had announced his Intention of
camlsheerlng Harris' salary nd mklna
him lose his position. The witness was
very positive a* to Ihe word* use.) by
Cnpt. Wilson, hut inter was very Indefi
nite a* lo day* and dale* and period* of
lime Intervening between various occur
rence# in lamlsvllle. Lieut. Barrow ques
tioned the witness particularly on these
milters, and drew attention 10 Ihls pe- ,
cullarlty of his testimony The witness
aw* questioned particularly aa 10 his con
duct in refusing to do guard duly, an.)
leaving Ihe company In IxMilsvllle. atsl
churned that he had not given Capt
Wilson ot th# company any reason to he- j
lleve that h* would do regular duty The
arltness testified positively that Harris
was not Intoxicated at the time of hit
arrest, and had not been *0 previously.
The wltneee was questioned closely by
Capt. Olesson of th* court-mart!*], a*
to whether he had not applied for mem
bership In the company, and tf he did
not know that hi* name ws* upon th*
ompany roll. Walker replied that he
he bad never mad* oppUcatioo for tnem
b#*hlp In the Blue*, and had never au
thorise! anyone else to do so for Mm.
•ml that If hla name had been placet upon
the company roll, he nod never been
notified of the fact.
At the conclusion of Walker'k teetlmorv
It ora* announced that the hearing would
be continued until Thursday night at S
