FOR THB TILLMAN TRIAL.
Judge Townsend, Not Judge Gage, Will
Hear the Case--Chief Justice Pope
Issues Order Relieving Judge
Columbia, September 4.-The case
of James H. Tillman will not be
heard before Judge George W. Gage,
at the coming term of Court in Lex
ington County. An order has been
issued by Chief Justice Pope, ap
pointing Judge D. A. Townsend to
hold the fall term of Courts in Ker
shaw and Lexington on account of
the physical infirmities of Ju-1ge
Gage. Justice Pope's order making
the change of Judges is as follows:
The State of South Carolina.
Whereas, the Hon. George Wil
liams Gage as presiding Judge of
the 5th judicial circuit for the fall
term, 1903, is unable by reason of
physical infirmities to hold the fall
term 1903 of the Courts of General
Sessions and Common Pleas for the
county of Lexington, in said State,
beginning on Monday, the 21st day
of September, in the year 1903, at
10 o'clock in the morning.
Now, in obedience to the laws of
this State governing such matters, I
do hereby nominate and appoint, the
Hon. D. A. Townsend, of the circuit
bench of this State, to hold the said
Court of General Sessions and Com.
won Pleas of and for the county of
Lexington, in the State of South
Carolina, for the fall term, 1903, of
said county, beginning on Monday
morning at 10 o'clock on the 21st
day of Sptenber, in the year 1903,
of said Courts of (Ioneral SosHions
and Common Pleas for Lexington,
in said State. Y. J Pope.
Cnief Jutitice of the Supreme
Court of the State of South Caro
lina, at Chambers, 1st September,
The transfer of Judge Townsend
to this circuit will cause some com
plication in the fall term of Court to
be held in Fairfield. In the sche
dule of Courts to be held Judge
Townsend is set down to hold Court
at Winusboro on September 23.
Under these circumstances a pre
siding Judge will have to be ap
pointed for the Fairlield Court.
The change of venue in the Till
man case was granted by Judge
Townsend in Richland County, and
he seems to be getting his share of
this important case.

Gen. Frost has forwarded to th4
war department his report of thi
militia of the State for the year 1601

There were but four calls for th(
services of troops to suppress riots, al

in all of which cases the troops re

The account of the various encamp

report from Major P. J. Drew as tc
number of men attending and ex

First regiment had in camp 600 offi.
cers and men; the Second regimenI
612; the Third 545. All of these wer
conducted in a mist creditable man
ner The. enthusiasm over militir
service is due, he thinks, to the receni
Dick military law, which is consid
ered the best ever passed. H(
recimmends, however, that the appro
priation for encampment purposek
will be doubled next year in ordei
that the men might have two weekt

In view of the fact that 24 drillE
a year are now required by the wa
department and that each company
only gets about $150 from the State,
it is recommended that the govern.
ment pay each man $1 per drill with
$1 fine for absence. This will ena
ble the militia to obtain armories
which are badly needed. The sug.
gestion is also made that the mini.

government hereafter provide trans
