I said I thought it was poison, and the moment I said so the prisoner, who was standing in the dock with a very high rail in front of him, suddenly fell head foremost over the front. I had him carried to the reserve room and laid on the table, and sent for Dr. Godrich. He speedily arrived, and was with the prisoner about two hours, during which time he showed no siens of consciousness. I kept him In the stiit.on till the following morning, and then by the advice of Dr Godrich sent him to St. George's Hospital in a cab. We gave him an emetic. I think he understood what was said to him. Prisoner declined to ask this witness a question. After some further evidence had been given relative to the murder of Mr. Heulin, the prisoner was again remanded. The prisoner's wife was in the reserve room but did not see her husband.
