TILLMAN ANNOUNGES PLANS.
Wants to Speak From State House )
Steps-Thinks Bryan Will be
Senator B. R. Tillman spent last
night in the city, says the State of.
yesterday, the guest of Gen. Wilie i
Jones. He leaves this morning for i
Patterson Springs, Ill., where lie has i
an engagement to lecture. He will
return in time for the Sandy .xit
meeting on Saturday next.
The senator said that while at his
home he had figured out a schedule
geographically, but on looking over
the railroad schedules, lie fouid that
it would be impossible to meet the en
gagements announced by letter to the
various committees. He stated that
the meetings as arranged for the
first week would stand, and - gave
out the following revised schedule:
Columbia, July 9th, at 8 p. m.; Min
eral Springs, Lexington county, July
10th; Aiken, July 11th; Barnwell,
July 12th; Bamberg, July 13th; Ello
ree, July 14th; Cheraw, July 17th;
Lamar, July 18; Chester, July 19th;
Lancaster, July 20th and Liberty Hill,
Kershaw county, sJuly 21st.
Senator Tillman stated that he had
received other invitations to make
speeches but that as yet he had not
arranged any further meetings. On
returning from the west, however, lie
will work out an additional schedule.
He said that lie had suggested to all
the committees that Col. Lumpkin be
invited to attend the meetings.
It was suggested that the Columbia
meeting be held on the state house
steps instead of the hall of the house
of representatives, provided the
weather is good. It was also suggest
- ed that a platform may be built on
the state house grounds for the pur
pose of accomnimodating the speakers
and allowing the audience to have the
beinefit of the open air.
Speaking of the work of congress,
the scnatolr said that he had never
known men during his 11 years' ex
plerieice at tile capitol, to devote1 more
time and thog-lit to any measure than
that of the railroad Iate bill. lHe said
that 114) former debate in coliress

f universal sorrow over this entire

in this county . He was for several
years one of the public cotton weigh.
irs at this place,, and had numerous
Friends all over the county. He has
mnade friends. He has many strong
Friends in this city. He was always
,onsiderate of others and it was not
-haracteristic of him to speak ill of
.iny person. He was very guarded in
4is expressions concerning others, al
bhough fearless in his editorial writ
ings. It was remarked yesterday by
e of Mr. Parks' friends that of all
inen he would not have expected to
learn of his' death in such a manner.
M\fr. Parks was an active member of
Orange Lodge, Knights of Pythias,
lnd during his residence here was an
,fficjal in the lodge.
Two of the hrothei's of the deceased

,-ordiig to law over the remains -of
,%1r. Parks. The finding was in the
'ollowing language: ''The said J.

hiot wVound1 in the hands of R. H.

Only three witnesses were examin

dIr. Charles P. Brunson, the magis
rate in this city, has his office in the
'ear room of the Court House, and lie
vas just going towards his office. He
vas one of the closest of any of the
pectators to the parties at the time
f the shooting. Mr. A. C. Linstidt is
vell knowvn in business circles of this
ity, The testimony at the inquest, is
~iven as follows:
Mr. C. P. Brunson, sworn, says:
~hat on June 20, 1006, about 11
'clock a. mn., was drivihig up to the
~ourt House gate, at my office. Be.
ore getting to the usual place of stop
uing Mr. A. M. Bozard came up and
poke to me relating the death scene of
is wife, Just then I saw the deceas
d, J. T. Parks, wvalking out of the
oui't House, and at the same time
fr. R1. H. Covar coming toward Rus-.
elI street' side of the Court House,
*n Church street. I was looking at
hem. Just at the gate they met. Mr.
'arks gave Mr. Covar a hand salute.
Covar aid Mr. Covar replied. Just
then Mr. Parks struck (I presume)
Mr. Covar. Just as that happened Mr.
Covar backed a little, both hands to
his shirt bosom; in the twinkle of. an
eye he (Covar) presented a pistol at
Parks' body and fired and continued
firing. Then Parks kinder turnedy.
and then drew a pistol and fired. Then
it was continual firing by both men.
Question. Did any one else fire a
Answer. No one. I saw Mr. Covar'o
father with a pistol in his hand, aid
saying to his son: "Kill him," and
going in direction of his son and
Parks. Parks was moving backwards.
C. P. Brunson.
Mr. A. C. Linstedt, sworn, says:
That on June 29, 1906, about 11 o'
clock a. in., I was coming down church
street by the Court House fence. I
saw Mr. Parks strike Mr. Covar. Theft
instantly shooting commenced. . Mr.
Covar fired first. They could not
have been over eight or ten feet apart
at the first shot. It could not have
been more than a second before rapid
firing by both parties, Parks and
Covar. Just at the time they ceased
firing and commenced to reload. I
rushed to Mr. R. H. Covar and dis
armed him. Just as I looked around
I saw Mr. Covar's father coming up,
hollowing, "Robbie, stop stop." He
was armed. I tried to take the pis
tol away from him. He said: "Don't
disarm me.'' I said: ''Put it in your
pocket.'' Then he put it in his pocket
and went off with his son. I then
turned Mr. Covar's pistol over to the
Question by foreman: Would you
know the pistol now if you saw it?
Answer. Yes. (Pistol presented.) It
is the pistol, it was unbreached when
I got it; had two loaded shells in it;
no empty shells in it.
A. C. Linstedt.
Di. A. S. Hyddick, being sworn,
says: That he has this day examined
by dissection the hody of J. T. Parks.
11nd finds on tle body of the said J.
T. Parks three gunshot wounds, viz:
First, one shot entering an(] fratir
ing the chiin aid passing out, file dir
Oetion bein., from right to left and(1
fromt above dow1Nwards. The seconl.
a1 unshot wound, entering ol the
ri-ht side of Ole bodv betleel thi

lohe of the liver and the tiransverse

umbilicus, which was made by a sp(nt11
bullet anld did nlot pass through ih
domiiiial wall. There was about lihree
pints of blood in the abdominal cavil\ y
and evidence of generl peritonitis.
In my judgment the death of tle
said J. T. Parks was due to wounids
described above. A. S. Hydriek.
During yesterday afternoion ill spite
of his intense suffering Mr. Parks
gave dlirect ions regarding the disposi
tion of his business affairs and lhe
made a wvill. There weie some dir'e
tions that lhe desired to give in regard1
to his business matters and lhe appar'
ently was in possession of his mental
faculties until a short time before his
death, lie made no ante-mortem
statement, as far as has been madie
known. iHe made none to his at tor'
neys. Mr.i~ Covair has not given out
The general supposition in Oirange
burg is that both parties were of (lie
impression that the other wouldl kill.
him on sight and (hat lie must be pre'
pared. The fact that both were arm
ed with such deadly weapons would
indicate the above to have been thie
impression *of each of the parties.
Since Mr. Parks sold his newspaper
business out to Messrs. Funderburg
and Covar several months ago there
have been differences between Mr'.
Parks and Mr. CQvar, wvhich seem to
have grown out of business transac
tions during the time that Mr. Covai'
was working for Mr. Parks afteir lhe
had moved to Oolumbia. It was not
known here that this bitterness had
become intensified, although since
the affair reports would indicate that
such had been the case. Both pair
tics had friends here and they would
have interfered and endeavored to*
make satisfactory adjustment of thie
difficulties .had if been made known
to them. Certainly the friends of
both parties would liave interfered
ind prevented so deplorable a terinin
ation of the differences.
Mr Parks has always taken an ae
tive interest in political affairs. Sev
eral years ago he was elected secre
tary of the State Democratic execu
tive committee, to succeed Mr. U. X.
Guiiter wlien the latter became a can
didate of the office of Attorney Gen
eral of the State. Mr. Parks has
been continuously re-elected ever
since and has given most satisfactory
service in this position. Mr. Tatum,
under whose administration he work
ed at. the state dispensary, had been a
warm friend of Mr. Parks for several
years, and this friendship has continu
