THE TILLMAN TRIAL.
ON THE STAND HE TELLS OF
EARLY FEUD WITH
. , GONZALES. ,
Says It Bpgin when He. Replied to
an Article Reflecting on His
Uncle, Now Uoited States
Lexington, S. C, Oct. 10.-
James H. Tillman to k the witness
stand late this afternoon and began
bis version of- the troubles which
led to bis killing Narcisso G. Gon
zalese, editor of the Columbia State.
Tillman's testimony today relat
ed entirely to his early troubles
with Mr. Go zales.
Colonel Tillman, after stating
that be was a son of the late Geo.
E. Tillman, was born and raised in
Edgefield County and had studied
at various schools, said:
"I had occaei -n to gq to Winns
boro to read law in the office of my
brother-in-law, Judge O. W. Bu
chanan. He was . not a judge at
that time, being a member of the
House of Representatives.
"While there he had occasion to
have written an article concerning
N. G. Gonzales. Mr. Gonzales at
that time was the Columbia corres
pondent of the News and Courier.
He had misrepresented a speech
which Captain Tillman, now Sena
tor Tillman, made before the March
convention, and I tock occasion : to
correct it, and signed the bom de
plume "Fair Play", to the article
"Mr. Gonzales wrote to the .editor
of the Winosboro paper demanding
the name of the writer' of the arti
cle. I did not care to get into a
newspaper, controversy and my
friends advised me not to give my
name, but when Mr. Gonzales wrote
a bitter' article la reply "to ' mine 1
did give him my name and pub
lished it in the News and , Herald.
It was absolutely incorrect to say I
would not give my name. '
'". "I had so many ' transactions
with N. G. Gonzales that I do not
recollect what was - the next one',
bat when my uncle was elected gov
ernor, in 1890, 1 was invited to at
tend the stale ball. '
"Before doing so I found it would
be necessary 1 for me to join the
South Carolina Club. I got the in
dorsement, voluntairly, of former
Governor Shepherd, of Edgefield,
and General Boobam. Late in the
afternoon some of my friends came
to me and told me that N. G. Gon
zales had drummed up enough of
his friends, under the rules of the
club, to blackball me. My friends
then withdrew my name. It was
never formerly presented to the
club: - ,' -I
"I. was about 21 years of age at
that time and bad never held any
public position or even , aspired to
one. In consequence to the South
Carolina Club affair I sent Mr,
GoDzalt s a message by George S
Legare, who is cow a congressman
from First District. I did not want
to violate the laws of nay state by
Bending a challenge, according to
code, and Mr. Legare simply ex
tended to Mr. Gonzales an invita
tion to meet me over .in Georgia..
t ! wefcl to-Ueorgia, trot mtTTxon-
zales did not come. After . remain
ing there several ;days 1 wrote him
a letter, itfwhiein I told ''him he
least he dould do was to pay'my ho
tel bill while waiting On him. . ' .
The next clash was; ' -
"I was in the newspaper business
for a considerable period and was
sent to Washington by the Augus
ta Chronicle and Columbia Journal
and afterward for , the Atlanta Con
stitution.' , ' ' ' -- -
'Mr. Gonzales, as I recolleet, was
an applicant for the position- form
erly held by General Kennedy, as
consul general to China:' . It has
been said he wanted to go to Rio
Janeiro, but my impression now is
that it was Shanghai, ' China. I
wrote he would not . be appointed.
The statement was written on : the
best authority obtainable as a news
paper correspondent. ; v S
VV ben the Spanish-American
war commenced I offered my serv
ices to the government and I was
appointed lieutenant-colonel of the
First' Southv Corolina Volunteers
without any application on my
part. It was tendered me. '
"After the war, with. ' Spain "was
ended I felt it was unjust to the
privates of my regiment - who had
volunteered to go to the. front, and
who had given up lucrative positions
to accept the government's pay of
$13 or $16. 40; a month, to keep
them longer in the service. Many
of them were married men and had
left their families. -
"I did not care to take them over
to Cuba to make roads as though
they were in a convict camp. ,'
"Mr. Gonzales criticised me very
severely,! end said after my appoint
ment as colonel of the regiment that
I was trying to keep the men from
being mustered out, while I was in
reality doing all I could to have
them mustered out so that they
might return to their homes. He
was; al ways very bitter toward me.
He criticised me and tried to have
' On the day after I was elected
senior vice-commander-inchief of
the Spacish war veterans the press
d'Spatch announcing it was headed
in Ihe ' State" just 'Poor Miles.' .-7
When asked whether or not there
were any editorial renecting on
bim-published in the State before
lyul iillman answered: I think
the paper has ; been pretty well de
voted to me since 1892 and to other
members of my family. During
all' that time he has never once let
upon me nor given a word of praise
foi any act of mine."
Mrs. M. A. Evans testified that
she passed Mr. Gonzalez on the day
he was shot' Only a short distance
from the transfer station, and from
biw facial expression believed a trag
edy "was imminent. He had his
hands : in his pockets, and, accord
ing 10 the witnese, she believed he
had a weapon in his right overcoat
porket. ' .
Richard Holzenbackthe witness
said, told her the party was N. G.
Gonzales. Holzenbaek was the
next witness. He ' corroborated
M rs. E vans and testi fied as an eye
witness of the shooting. ' He was
attacked on cross-examination, and
Col. Bellinger ftr tbe -prosecution
intimated that the witness was not
J'M. Ci Lorick - was anot her ' ey e'
witofs's of the"nBhotinif who-- was
subjected to a most severe cross
examination. - Col. Bellinger open
ly stated he was endeavoring to im
peach the witness, and engaged' in
a controversy with him.
' "I'll see you later about this,"
the witness declared as he left the
stand, shaking his finger at Bel
linger. : . '
Lexington, K. Oct. J 3. The jury
lq the trial of ex-Lieutenant Gov
ernor' James Tillman, listened to
arguments by counsel throughout
tbe entire day. When court con
vened' today' an anusually large
crowd Was present,' and by the time
adjournment was taken tonight the
room was packed, the audience in
eluding many women.' ! ' " v.
Contrary to the program agreed
upon, tne arguments to s tne 1 jury
were not concluded today.' Colonel
Croft, for the defense, and General
Bellinger, lor tne state, . will con
clude their arguments torrorrow,
Colonel Croft having yet one hour
remaining and General Bellinger
nearly two hours., Thus the case
will not go to the jury before the
middle of the day, and it will take
some time for court to deliver tbe
charge after the attorneys have fin
ished. : ';"":'" V ---.-;' ' - .;
Requests by counsel for instruc
tions 10 the jury were read and ar
gued today. . ; ; -';
E. S. Asbury, or tbe prosecution,
replying to counsel for tbe defense,
contended that Mr. Gonzales' mind
was clear when he made his .last
statements. The court was asked
to instruct the jury that it is for the
jury to Bay wnetber a man of ord
inary reason would act as Mr. Till
man did on January 15.

Knight of Pvthias, from Gillman,

men ot human nature who is hard
to kill. ' Two years ago, 40 tons of
coal fell on him, in the mine just
north of Seattle, and bis compan
ions who " eecaped injury, ; said :
"There's no use in digging him out;
he's dead as a door naiL". .
?'No, I'm not I" exclaimed Reese,
from beneath tbe pile of coal. "Just
dig a hole in the pile so I can
breathe, and then you can take the
rest of the pile off me."
But his left eye was put out, bis
jaws smashed; his skull badly frac
tured; his fight nip massed so tnat
he no longer has any, and he suf
fered a broken . thigh and several
crushed ribs. ,
It. took, two hours and a half for
the miners to take the coal off my
body," he said, "and then I was
carried off to a hospital As you
can see, I am quite a live corps yet,
and a living illustration of how hard
it is to kill a Knight of Pythias. -1

Mr. Keese was in the act of di
