A.do not know whethier it was

very nice table.
Q--Wiat. sort ot table was it?
A-I think it was diniIng table, an
extension table. Had nice carvqd
legs to it. I noticed tlie legs more
11h1ani anhiilng else. It was unpacked.
Q-1)id you know whether. there

Q-Two years last fall .
A-Yes. sir-. thiey have served two
sessions I think.
A-Thle present delegation, mnem
hers ot' tlie legislature from New
berry county now?
"I intended to make a statement.
I intended to carry this matter to the
supreme court rather than come
here and make this statement. But
inasmuch as it has gone before them
yesterday and was decided there was
no use to make any protest.
Dr. James McIntosh.
Dr. James McIntosh, president of
I the Newberry Savings bank,was next
sworn. Said Mr Evans had no busi
ness in the bank in his own name.
Mr. Evans had come to his bank on
r business. Mr. Lyon asked if Dr. Me
fntosh siated to the sub-coinnttee
. that Mr. Evans had not received
" presents from liquor houses. This
was not answered in the affirmative
by Dr. Mcintosh. The witness ad
mitted after a great deal of question
ing that he had hold the truth if he
had said that Mr. Evans had acknow
ledged receiving a diamond pin from
a whiskey house. Witness could re
collect no other present. Dr. McIn
tosh was a very unwilling witness.
le could not recollect hiaviiig told
the committee anything but Mr. Ly
on s recollection of former conversa
e tions with Dr. McIntosh appeared to
1 he very vivid.
Hon. Arthur Kibler.
e Arthur Kiler, a merchant
e from Newberry, was next put on the
stand. le sells grocery and furni
ture, le had been called out to
a look at a table. Mr. Evans said he
lhad bouight the table at a bankrupt
sale and that it cost $400. Mr. Kib
*'er was not impressed with the value
f tie table as represented by Mr.
I-ivans. It is a nice table btut not
1 worth more than $50 or $75. It was
I the finest table he had ever seen.
- Mr. Evans had beat Mr. Kibler for
the legislature and was later elected
a member of the State board. At
the next election Mr. Kibler was elee
ted to the legislature, and Mr. Evans
as a candidate for reelection to the
board had called him aside in the
Newberry hotel and had told him
that, ''All T have ever gotten has
beeni my salary $400.'' Mr. Evans
told0 him lhe niever. ot any rebaite at
Tracing the Furniture.
- Mr. Lyon put in evidence the fol
lowing affidavit showing that Blu
I menithal & Bickert of Atlanta had
sent Mr. Ev'ans the earload of fur
niturlle which he had exhibited to Mr.

more than I (i) and see what lie can

t1he samle thinlg I had said to Mr.
Johnson. Mrl. Wailker stated at once
that they could not afford to furnish
mile with tle information, that it
wats against their business rules and
also against tle request of Blunien
that and Bickert, that in buying the
bill of furniture they did not want
anything to be known about it. I ask
ed Mr. Walker ithe question if ''the
handsome besdstead was given Mr.
Evanls by- Blumenvithal & Bickevrt ?'
He stated, ''No, Mr. Evans bought
that himself and had it shipped with
tie furniture Bluienthal and Bick
ert bought.'' He stated Mr. Evanq
had bought several other nice tliiingF
and paid cash for them and that on
that account they could not furnisli
me with a copy of anything Mr
Evans bought and that. they would
not furnish a copy of the Blumenthal
and Rickert bill, but that it was al
very handsome furnittire. I thei
asked, ''What was the amount 0
the Blumenthal and Bickert billi'

that Mr. Evans' bill was ill additioi
to tihis. lie left the impression tha
Mr. Evains' bill was between $401
an(] $500. That the bedstead wa
something like $300. I remarke
that it was more than that, that th
carload was something like $3,60C
They made no reply to that. Mi
Walker stated that Mr. Evans wa
present when the purchase was mad,
ly Blumenthal & Bickert and tha
Mr. Evans selected the things the
lie paid for andl that they were al
shipped together. I then said, ''Gen

I thanked them for the time I ha,

On the following Monday I wen

'Zoiir to Mr. Johnson again and ex
ilained to him why I wanted thi
information concerning this transac

who was ill the building. I told hin
I prefered to have the coniversatio1

said to Mr. Johnson and I told hini
that I thought it was his duit.y as ali

give 1me this information. Mr. Dui
Bose laughed and1 said that 1 ha<4
already gotten too much informatioi

The committee thei. adjourned un

SAYS IT A LIE.
That Is Way Mr. Evans Character
izes Testimony of Mr. Davis
. Col. Towill Denies It Also.
Tle Au:usta Chronlicle's Colum
bill Correspondent un1.der date June
7 writes his paper that Ex-Director
John Bell Towill, who was here to
lay, had a long distance 'phone in
terview this afternoon with ex-Chair
man Evans, who talked from his
home in Newberry, immediately fol
lowing the testimony of Contractor
''He's a damned liar from start to
finish,'' came the voice of the man
whom Davis said showed him bunch
es of thousand dollar bills, suits of
furniture, silk hats full of money,
fine houses and plantations. ''And
if there weren't some ladies standitig
liere by tle 'plione I'd tell you the
other tiiigs hie is; you know what
that is.'' Last winter Mr. Evans
warned Messrs. Lyon and Christen
sen that le would shoot aly witness
put on the stand to testify against
S his character, and who was there
with his friends apparently ready to
t carry out his threats the day the
t Newberry situation was to be enter
I ed upon. but which the committee
- backed away from.

r thing nm explain Mr. Daivs' testi
. fl. Davis was not allowed to go
- home tuilay, Mr. Lyoin detaining himl
- on the _,roumd tliat he would need
Towill Denies it All.
Mr1. Towell said never. had a sill
g-le instalce of uinlpleasaitiess with
- Mr. Evans the entire time lie was on
t the board with him. He says tile
story about his being bribed at tihe
t hotel is rediculously false.
"Who was this middle man repre
- senting tanahan Iefore the board
a the latter part of last year after Mr.
- Bovkin let the Lanalall interests
t go?'' The Chronicle correspondent
- askedl Mi. Towill.
"1 I haven't the sli-htest idea,'' Mr'.
2 Towill replied. 'I don 't believe
hMr. Boykin ever r'eprCeented Lana
esiswithlahnImhents em b'lllgw g ypj f
" It appear5 s to mue to be a ridicul
.Oius st ory about Lanahian paying Boy
a kin $2,000 a1 year' to r'epresent him.
If lie was paying so mneh reb)ates
.. what was tihe sense0 to paIy himl a

lihe would have required more than
