Mr. Cole. L. Blease, who was with
Tillman when he made the threat to
shock South Carolina with the tragedy
of Gonzales' death, which was testified
to by Adams, made a modification in
ihe testimony by saying that Tillman
said he would enact the tragedy in case
Gonzales continued in his threats. Mr.
Blease denied that Tillman carried a
pistol during the campaign, b,t ad
mitted that he had one at the Columbia
meeting. Had one given to him by Mr.
B!ease and it was given to him be
kAUSe Tillman expected Gonzales to at

the shooting she heard two men in the
