Him Instantly. Admits A
Expects Acquittal Under'
Greenville, March 12.-G. W. Tidwell,
aged 52, traveling -representative of
the Jacobs Advertising Agency, of Clin
ton, this morning a few minutes after
t0 o'clock, shot an instantly killed
R. Emmet Walker, ago 20, a promi
nent young man of this city emptying
five bullets into his body, as he ap
proached him at the door of the office
of the Carolina Mill, where Mr. Walk
er was employed as paymaster.
Mr. Tidwell engaged a public service
automobile at the corner of Main and
Washingtin streets this 'morning a few
.alnu'tes after nine o'clock -and drove
immediately to the Carolina Mill ollice,
and was met in the hall by Mr. Wal
ker. While shaking hands with Mr.
Walker he began firing from a 38
calibre revolver, held in his left hand,
and the victim fell limp to the flioor,
his face at Mr. Tidwell's feet.
Maintaining his silence, Tidwiell en
tered the automobile and drove direct
to the sheriff's office, approaching
Deputy Sheriff Keller, exclaiming in
assionately "I've killed Walker and
am now ready to surrender."
Sheriff Rector imnediatoly took
Tidwell into custody and carried him
to the County jail. There he made
ts statement to a reporter for the
"I killed him because he and a Mr.
Woods invaded ny home, seduced my
wie and daughter and ruined me for
ever. I have no denial to maze and I
only took the course that other fair
minded ,men would have pursued.
could stand -tne mortiflcation no
longer. I would have resorted to the
White Slave law, and mr.de the young
m1e+: Kuiler for their 'vionga',.ig,
but simply for the sake of my wife,
my children and my grandchildren I
could -not undergo the terrible ex
posure that would result.
"Walker was not alone in his evil
practice, for lie and William G. Woods
even took it upon themselves to go to
my -home in Clinton and wrecked my
home in 'ily absence. These two men
also induced my wife and my daughter
to Greenville and sent them money
with which to come here.
"I heard about them being in this
city last Friday night in company
with Walker and Woods, while I was
in Cheraw. I came at once to Green
ville, arriving here S:aturday. And to
my great sorrow I learned they had
been arrested. There were two things
for 'me to do. To resort to the white
slave law or to demand that Walker
marry my daughter. I cliose the lat
ter and when I put the proposition pll
to him Sunday afternoon in my room
at the Ottaray hotel, lie stated that
such a course would be impossible, as
the girl was out of his class. While
in my room lie appeared indifferent
and was imlipdent and insulting. I
then told him .that this meeting had
been friendly, but the next time it
would be different.
"When I first called for Mr. Wal -
ker, he would not come to the hotel
but sent his best friend to see me. I
told the caller that it was not an oc
casion for a middle man, that it was
solely up to Mr. Walker and that I de
sired to see him and would promise
not to molest him. Walker later came
to miy "eom.
"I caine .to Greenville last nIght, ar
rivin~g here at 9.40 from Aiiderson
where I had been on business. 1 stop
pod( et the Ottaray hotel. Having madeo
upl my mindl pi'eviously to settle the
matter In the manner in which I did.
I left this mor'ning to go to the mill1
know!lr: that it would mean death for
either him or ime. flefore leavling the
hotel I penned a note to my son in
Clinton sealed it and add~ressed it to
Sheriff Reclor to be delivered to my
son in the eveint that I was killed, for
I knew It wouldl be found onl my per
son." (lie withdrew the letter from
lis insk(e coat pocket but wvould net
-ormit it to be opened.)
Mrl. Tid~well aippearedl cool and un
excitedl when he wais applroachled at
the couinty jail by a repor'ter. lie said
lhe had no (denial to make, but lie hoped
the pauper's would sup~press -the -news
as much as possible beciause tile facts
in the case wYere so revoling.
At Mr. Tidwell's requieit, Sher'iff
Rector called for Attorney .James Hi.
Price. When Mr. Price arrived the
two retired to the parlor of the jail
andi held a pri'vate conference, Later
the repor'ters were admitted and the
defendant and his counsel deelided to
make a brief statement but after'wardls
changed -theoir mindls, deferrinig a state
ment to the public for tihe present.
An effort will b)e made immediately
after the vem'dict of the coronuer's jury
this afternoon to securn' bail for' the
defendant. 'Thle diefend~anlt stated that
lie could easily give bail andl lnllimated
that there were at least a doe mina
in Greenville who would plrobably
gladlly go on his bail. He saidl, how
ever, that lie had just as soon stay in
jail as anywhere.
The first iniformation Mr. Tidwell's
wife and family received of the hiomi
cide was from Mr. Tidwvell, himself,
who called them up at Clinton this
morning, shortly infter the tragedy,
and in a quiet way he "broke" the
news, 'begging 'that she not become
excited over the affair; that he was
all right, and asked that she stay at
homs and- not ecme to Greenville un
der any circumstances.
Ho later called up his son at his
place of business at Clinton and in
for'med him of the tragedy, asking that
ho. go home and stay wvith his sister
and mother, and net to mistreat thorn

negro assignation }rouse on Gower

night by two young men. 'Deputy
Sheriff Keller went immediately to the
houce and found the negro woman,
Mary Worn and the two white women
who later proved to be Mrs. Tidwell
and her stepdaugther. They were ar
rested but later released on bond. The
men were not in the house at the time,
but their identity was made known by
the woman who called to the young
mene for assistance.
Mr. Tidwell arrived in the city dur

his wife and daugther to Clinton. He
returned Sunday for the expressed pur
pose of reaching a satisfactory agree

states the young men would not ac

see Woods, he stated, having heard
that he had left. Greenville and was
not to be found.
Mrs. Tidwell Is said to be a very
beautiful young woman, about 22
years of age. She is Mr. Tidwell's se
cond wife, his first wife having died
some years ago. Hie is a man of a
large family and has several grown

Mr. Tidwell and wife 'resided in
Greenville about a year ago, being

number of months, having charge of
mill circulation. lie later became as

Agency b, Cinton, a concern that is
known all over the United :'tates.
In Greenville Mr. Tidwqll -resided in
Hampton avenue and Mulberry streets.
Mr Tidwell, who is a Tennessean
by birth, stated that he had worked
in practically every Houthern state

1870. For a long time he tn's on the

lie is a man of fine appearance, and
of above the average intelligence. Na
turally, he was despondent today, and
occasionally showed signs of nervous
ness and once or twice in the curse
of his conversation with a reporter
his eyes were filled with tears. But
when he mingled with the sheriff and
a few others in the lobby of the jail, he
was cool, placid and seemed at ease.
Ills general condition was the subject
of comment among those who saw him.
Greonville, March 13.-It was
necessary for Coroner Black to go be
fore a notary public and swear that
George W. Tidwell confessed to him
the killing of Emnet Walker before
the coroner's jury could reach a ver
dict. ''idwell was referred to as a
"stranger" by all witnesses in the
testimony, thus causing a hitch in the
The inquest was held yesterday af
ternoon at the undertaking establish
ient of Mackey & Son., resulting in
the following verdict: "l mmet Walk
er came to his death Thursday, March
12, 1914, as a result of pistol wounds
inflicted by George W. Tidwell."
The evidence of eye-witnesses to the
killing was sensa'tional throughou t,
showing the deliberateness of ma me~r
in wvhich Tidwell actedl in carrying out
his purp~ose. The testimony adduced
at the inquest is given verbatim:
Mr. J. P. Cain being duly sworn tes
tified as follows:
"Fomewhere about 10 o'clock this
morning I was sitting in the omele of
the Carolina Mill. Mr. Emmet Walk
er was sitating at a desk dlirectly in
front of nme. Mr. A. Rt. Rloddy was
standling talking to me,. when I notic
ed an automobile come up to our' gate.
A man hastily got out of the automoe
1b11e and came to the front of the of
fiee, pleeping through the windlow. le
andu Mr. WValker saluted each other.
This stranger then ca'me into the hall
way of the oiflce and asked Walker
to let him see him pirivately for one
minute. Mr. Walker' arose and wvent
into the hallway and extended his
hand. Then the shooting commenced.
There were four or five shots fired. I
went to the (loot' and1 saw the last shot
If'ed dlirectly into Mr'. Walker. The
str'anger then dlropple'd Mr. Walker's
body and .walked raplidly out of the of
Upon cross examination lhe testified
as follows: 't~~l lil
himn before the shooting. I did not see
the first shiot fire<t and heard no cotn
versation in the hal luand blelieve that
ther'e wvas none. I didn't search the
blodly, b~ut the coroner' dlid. Mr. Wnlk
er has a pistol in the paymaster's of
lice but I do not know whethe-r lie
carries It or not, le has had it in
the office for several months but I do
not know whether lie has taken it
from the omeie. I heard no word of the
trouble from Mr. Walker. Walker's
pistol in the oflice is the property of
the paymaster and it is customary
to keep the pistol in a place like this
for pirotection of funds. Walker had
no pistol on person when the stranger
entered and there was no pistol near
the scone of the shooting. I was nev
er' 10 feet away from the shooting at
any time. Walker had his left arm
around the strahger's neck. I heard
nothing about the conversation to
show Walker was making -an attack.
Walker was in his shirt sleeves and
when spoken to by the stranger did
not replly but walked i.nto the hallway.
Ho has said niothing in the office to
indifcate he was expecting trouble. The
impression given me was that lie was
trying to protect himself."
