\ Cases First-Tillman Was

murder of Narviio 0 Gonzales.
Judge Frank 13. Gary at Lexington
on londay nadin his first. ruling in
.this all absorbing cas. The conten
tion was whRther the.mase should be
.\rderrd for fiial this week or begin
next Monday. Lexington's grand
jury, county officers and lawyers in
sisted that the business of the county
should firat.be disposed of, and that
it would takb at least all of the pres
ent week to bandle the strictly local
cases. The local attorniYs, most of
whom are of counsel for Tillman, in.
sisted that for economic reasons local
cases should be first heard, and that
the Tillman case should not. be inter
larded at an expense to t he county.
Early on Monday, the opening day
'f the Lexington court, it was evi
dent that the defence, for some rea
son, wished the case to ie set for
Monday next, and it was equally as
evident that the prosiection prefer.
red to get into the case with as litt-e
delay as possible. Council for the
defence argued that they were anx
ions to go to trial, and th sooner the
better they would like it, but three
of their counsel, who also happen to
be members of the Lexington Bar,
took tb'e position that, independent
of the Tillanu case, they insistel
upon first. completing the locil work,
and then taking up the case froin a
sister count y, and (iat tho Lxingto
cases would take all i ho week, whet her

ALLEMIE CHOICE OF .111MR9lES.
It was sUggested, whether with
reason or not, that next week's jury
suited the defence bettor than that
of this wteek, bi-t many intist, that
there is no essential difference ini the
jury, and connsl for the defence di
rectly contended .t hat t he request o
fix the trial for next Monday caime
from the grand jury, the local Bar
and thse county oflicers.
Solicitor Thurmbd urged that
there would be no loss of time or
r money to Lexington inl fixing the
trial for yesterday (Thursda) ), and
if the local cases were not then con
eluded, and he thon'ght, they would
be certainly by Friday, that it would
be best to fix some day ihis week for
the CasU to begin.
James H-. Tillman waived tle ttie
on arraignmiet and it wias agreed
*hat he would not claim his three
days' t.imn when the case is called on
Monday, in lieu of his waivinrg thle

Those standing behind the presi
