Change of Venue for Tillman.
Argument on tho motion for a chan ?re
of venue in the caso of Janiea IL Till"
man, indicted for tho murder of N. G.
Gonzales, was concluded ot 5 o'clock
last Wedne?day afternoon, and Judge
Townsend at once announced lite decis
ion that thu chango should be grant
ed. Counsel disagreed concerniug tue
county where tho caso ahould be sent,
and after sleeping over tho matter,
Judge Townsend auuounced that he
had choseuLexington. +
Wednesday's proceedings opened
with the argument of Mr. Andrew
Crawford, for the prosecution, against
the motion. Ho spoke for an hour and
a half, and his presentation of the law
was highly complimented. He was
followed by Mr. P. H. Nelson, for the
defence, who also devoted himself
largely to the law of the case. ?fr. G.
Duncan Bellinger, formerly attorney
Suerai, next addressed tho court for
e prosecution, first answering the
arguments on the other hide. Solicitor
Thurmond dosed for the prosecution
in a clear-cut speech.
The sensation of tho dav followed,
when ex-Judge 0. W. Buchanan, the
defendant's brother-in-law, addressed
the court. It was not thought that
Jud go Bu cha? an would speak, espec
ially as the defence had left only about
fifty minntes of the time allotted that,
side, which, it was presumed, would
be occupied by Congressman George
W. Croft. Tillman's law partner. But
Judge Buchanan spoke xor thirty min
utes and delivered a bitter arraignment
of the press, the commercial interests
oud the peoplo of Columbia generally.
He asserted that commercialism had
.supplanted the old southern standards,
and that the press was now at liberty
tc abuse and villify any mnn who
spoke his honest convictions. He
charged that the State had goaded the
defendant to desperation by ?B abuse
of him, and said the State had now
cracked its whip and lashed tho citi
zens of Columbia into signing aflldavits
for the prosecution under tear of the
State's power. He charged that the
capitalist interest and the press were
allied, and that men had been intimi
dated into signing thoso affidavits, lest
their position or their business be in
jured. "By grabs," exclaimed Judge
Buchanan, "if thev don't like this let
them lum? it"
Judge Townsend interrupted the
speaker to say that he was consuming
tho time of the defence and leaving
none for Mr. Croft.
Mr. Buehanan then took his seat
and court adjourned for dinner, with
fifteen minutes remaining of the allot
ted time. This was extend**! and Mr.
Croft closed the argument, after din
ner, in a strong speech of about twenty
At the close the court announced its
decision to grant the motion and asked
counsel for suggestions concerning the
place to which the case should be
transferred. Mr. Croft suggested
Saluda, but to this Solicitor Thur
mond objected on the ground that Sa
luda court house is fourteen miles
from the railroad and accommodations
are too meagre to entertain the- two
hundred witnesses who would have to !
he transported there.
Mr. Crawford also spoke in objection
to Saluda, saying that the defendant's
futf1 T, the la> Congressman George
D. ?Jiman, was the father of Saluda
county and that until recent years Sa
luda waa a part of Edgefleld, the de
Mr. Nelson spoke strongly in favor
of sending the caso to Saluda, alleging
that the defendant was entitled to a
speedy trial and this could not be had
unless it was sent to either Salada or
Edgefleld. as court fer this tenu has
been held in other counties of this cir
Mr. Bellinger replied to the remarks
of Messrs. Croft and Nelson with much
vigor, asserting that to transfer the
case to Saluda would be unwise and
unjust to the prosecution as well as
inconvenient. He said that the defen
dant had waived his right po a speedy
trial by asking for a continuance at
the last term of court, when the prose
cution was anxious to proceed. Tb ?re
were several lively tilts between
Messrs. Nelson and Bellinger.
. Mt. Croft closed the argument as
serting that there were ample accom
modation at Saluda and that it is not
a Tillman stronghold. Judge Town
send then instructed the attorneys to
draw up an order for a change of venue
and leave the county blank.
Three Are Lynched By Hob.
Albany, Ga., June 26.-Newtons
tte county seat of Albany, was the
scene of a triple lynohing last night.
Three negroes, Wiley Anette, Gar
field MoCoy and George McKinney,
?barged with tba murder of Mr. A. S.
(ullard, on the 20th instant, were tak
en from tho jail in Newton and hung
to a tree less than a mile away.
About 12 o'olook last night Jailor
Bill Screws was called tip by a bailiff
from one of the outlying districts of
the county, who said that he had a
prisoner to put in jail. *
Jailor Screws left his home and ac
companied the bailiff to the jail some
distance away. He noticed that the
bailiff had no prisoner and asked
where his prisoner was. The bailiff
said that he had left tho prisoner in
nhargo of a friend at the jail.
On reaching the jail Jailor Screws
opened the outer door of the jail and
as he did so an armed mob closed
quiokly about him, a pistol was thrust
in his face and he was commanded to
open the door to the cell containing
fha three prisoners. Under pressure,
the jailor obeyed tho oommauds.
The three negroes were taken by
the mob and hanged on v ho *ume tree
less'than a mile away from the jail.
The crime WT I h which the three ne
groes were charged was an ugly one.
On last Saturday night a large crowd
of negroes gathered/on the farm of
Mr. F. S. Bullard, near Poaoe, Ga., to
indulge in a frolic given by one of
Ballard's farm hands. The three ne
groes from Miller county wero in the
crowd, which, many of whom being
drunk, soon started trouble.
Their host oould not Veep Chem
quiet and Mr. Bullard went to the house
and commanded quiet.
Anette McCoy and Mc Ki mic/ drew
their revolvers and opened fire'on
Bullard, inflicting wounds from which
he died Tuesday morning.
It was proved that McKinney fired
?u? ?h?L tani killed Sir. Buliard.
