Columbia, S. C., Feb. 19-Chief Jua
tioe Pope has refused ibo application
for bail of J. H. Tillman. It was tho
rule of thc court, he said, in such
oases to make no explanation of the
reasonings governing tho decision.
Murder was thc takiug of human lifo
with malice aforethought. With thc
oath of office so recent upon his lips
ho must do his duty and decline the
application without prejudice to tho
caso of the defoiidaut.
A multitude of affidavits covering
the case with r.n iuflnity of detail was
presented by thc Stato and a largo
number iu reply were read for the de
fendant. The State prcbentcd a num
ber of affidavits from Fidgcficld pcoplo
impeaching tho testimony of the affi
ant, lloltzbake, and also declaring

sis being to weaken thc will power and

presentative Lancaster, of Spartan
burs, that he saw a pistol in Tillman's
pocket on the day preceding tho
shooting, and another from a Columbia
gunsmith that F. H. Dominick, of
Newberry, previous to thc shooting,
brought hint a magazine pistol and
that he repaired it.
E. J. Watson, of The Stato, swore
to a conversation with Tillman last
summer in whioh the latter requested
him to tell Gonzales substantially
that a continuance of the newspaper
attaoks would bc at his peril. Wat
son declined to convey the moesage.

affidavit that Tillman told him on a
train and again in Augusta that he was
going to kill Gonzales, exhibiting the
Robert Lathau, Mr. Gonzales' sten
ographer, swore to a statement of Mr.
Gonzales taken by him when he had
death in view and relating the Btoty
of the shooting. Mr. Gonzales de
clared he had sent Tillman no message
and considered the matter ended.
Several well-known citizens of Colum
bia who saw the shooting testified that
Gonzales made no threatening motion.
In the argument the State stressed
tho point among many others that the
language as to the white feather did
not constitute a threat when coupled
with the faot that at no time before
had Mr. Gonzales employed any vio
lence towards Colonel Tillman.
