SHOT BY JIM TILLMAN.
BALL PASSBD BNTIRELY THROUGH
BODY AND DROPPED TO GROUND.
Shooting Occured on Main Street in Colum
bia and the Wound is Thought to Be
Fatal--Full and betailed Account
of the Tragedy.
[Special to The Herald and News. [
Columbia, S. C., Jan 15, 6.30-Lieu
tenant' Governor James H. Tillman this
afternoon shot Mr. N. G. Gonzales,
editor of The State newspaper. At this
hour, 5 V. m., Mr. Gonzales is still liv
ing, but the general impression seems
to previil that the wound is fatal.
The shooting occurred about 1.46
o'clock on Main street, near Gervais,
just in front of the street car transfer
Mr. Tillman and Senator Talbird, of
Beaufort, were walking together from
the State house. Just after crossing
Gervais, at the corner, they met Mr.
Gonzales. Without a word, so far as
can be ascertained, Mr. Tillman drew his
pistol and fired. A boy who happened
to be near said that immediately after
the shot was fired Mr. Tillman said:
"You'll stop that now."
Another report is to the effect that
Mr. Tillman upon meeting Mr. Gon
zales said: "I received your message,"
- Another still says that these words
were used by Mr. Tillman immediately
after the shot.
Inquiry fails to reveal any indication
of a message having been sent by Gon
zales to Tillman.
Mr. Gonzales when shot clasped his
hands to his stomach and was in the act
of falling when caught by gentlemen
who rushed to the scene. Supported he
walked to the State office, only about a
hundred yards off.
Col. Tillman was placed under arrest
and is now in jail.
The Evening Record states that Sena
tor Talbird, who was with Mr. Tillman
said when asked about the affair that
nothing was said, that there was no
The pistol used by Mr. Tillman was a
very large oue. There was only one
shot fired, the bullet entering Mr. Gon
zales stomach passing through and fall
ing to the ground. It was a 33 calibre.
Col. Tillman was immediately arres
ted and taken to the station house.
There he made no statement. Later he
was called upon by Senator Talbird and
Hon. F. H. Dominick. These gentle
men had been with him only a few
~-"moments wvhen the sheriff drove up in a

never fear; in fact Newberry can boast
of having a most excellent set of gen
