ESTABLISHED t5T. N IWrflER~-R. '. C. FRDA V, JUNE 26 1903 TWICE A EK $1.50 Ai YAR THE TILLKIN CASE GOES TO LEXINGTON. CHANGE OF VBNUB ORDBRED BY JUDGE D. A. TOWNSBND. Over Sey,!L Hundred Affidavits Read For And Against The Change- Defense Pleaded For Saluda County. Special to Herald and News. Columbia, S. U., June 25.-Judge DA. .Townsend this morning ordered \that the trial of James H. Tillmpu on the charge of murder for the killing of N. G. Gonzales on Main street in Columbia on January 15 last, be held in Lexington county. Court meets in Lexington county on the third Monday in September, and Judge Gage will preside. Counsel for Tillman strongly pleaded that the trial be ordered to Saluda county. Since a change has been made, Lexington county is satisfactory to the public here. P. M. BRioE. Columbia, S. C., June 24.-Argu ment on the inotion for a change of venue in the case of James H. Till man, indicted for the murder of N. G. Gonzales, was concluded at 5 o'clock this afternoon, and Judge Townsend at once announced his decision that the change should be granted. Counsel disagreed con cerning the county where the case should be sent and this was left un decided for the present. The argument was begnn at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Col George Johnstone for the defense. Col Johnstone is one of the most elo quent and resourceful law)ers of the State, and he spoke for over an hour, criticising and commenting on cer tain of the prosecution's affidavits. Before Col. Johnstone's opening argument more than seven hundred affidavits on both sides had been in. troduced, those for the defense alleg. ing that a fair trial could i.ut be had in Richland County, those for the State alleging that, as fair trial could he had in Richland as in any county in the State. The hearing on tho motion for a change of venne was taken up before Judge D. A. Townsend on Monday morning. Senator Tillman, Mrs Tillnian, de fendant's mother, and Mrs. Tillman, his wvife, came to the court honse soon after the defendanat, who wvent te see them in an ante room wvhere lhe remained a few minutes. After t he proceedings were under way Sen. ator Tillmnan, Mrs. Jas H. Tillman, with her little child, and B. R. TVill anm, Jr , came i nto, the cou rt. room~f andi t.ook seats near the defendant. The rmading of the affidavits pro ceedled in the ordinary way, Mr. John sitonie read inmg a p'art o f t hemr Some imeis MIr. Nelsonc anid Mr. J1.hanstonei mnade paarenathetical remraarks dunring thme reading, but Mr. B'llinag.r pro tested4 andi thIe judl(ge decl arod that the ailidavits must b et stict ly' istk to. A mnass or ailidavigs were read the firsa day anid by 5 o'clo)ck of thme seo oud day each side had presented about 300) or 400. Probably thre most niot able affidavit, for the defense wvas that of Col. Wilie Jones, setting forth that "public seuntimuent" in the city and county "is intense against James. H. Tiliman." It was followed by a letter, however, written later, in wvhich Col. Jones stated that he should not be. coin at rued as saying that Tillman could niot get a fair tial in Richland. The last da1) s pr'oedings were opented with the argumenat of Mr. An drewv Crawford for the State', against the motion. He was followed b~y Mr. P. H. Nelson for the defense and Mr. (i Duncuan Bellinger-, for the prosecution. The sensation of the dlay followed, when Ex-Judge 0. W. But-hanan, the defendant's brother in law, ad dIressed the Court. It was not thought that .Judge Buchanar would speak, especially as thbe de fence had left only about lifft in,I uites of the time allotted that aide, which, it was presumed, would be occupied by Congressman George W. Croft, Tillman's law partner. But Judge Buchanan spoke for thirty minutes and delivered a bitter arraignment of the press, the com mercial interests and the people gen. erally of Columbia. Het asserted that commercialism had supplanted the old Southern standards, and that the press was now at liberty to abuse and villify any man who spoke his honest convictions. He charged that the State had goaded the de. fendaut to desperation by its abuse of him, and said the State had now cracked its whip and lashed the citizens of Columbia into signing affidavits for the prosecution under fear of the State's power. He charged that the capitalist interest and the press were allied, and that men had been intimidated into sign ing those affidavits lest their position or their nusiness he injured. "By grabs," exclaimed Judge Buch anan, "if they don't like this let them lump it" Judge Townsend interrupted the speaker to say that he was consum ing the time of the defense and leav ing none for Mr Uroft. After the dinner hour Mr. Croft closed the argument. At its close the Court announced its decision to grant the motion and asked counsel for suggestions concern - ing the place to which the case should be transferred. Mr Oroft suggested Saluda, but to this Solicitor Thur mond objected on the ground that Saluda Court House is fourteen miles from the railroad and accommoda tions are too meagre to entertain the two hundred witnesses who would have to be transported there. The defence strongly favored send ing the case to Saluda, alleging that. the defendant was entitled to a speedy trial and this could not be had unless it was sent to either Sa luda or Edgefield, as Court for this term has been held in other counties of this circuit. The prosecution strongly objected on the ground that Salnda was but recently cut off from Edgefield, J. H. Tilliman's home county, and that the county was formed largely through the efforts of Goo. D. Till man, the defendant's father. As to speedy trial, the prosecution held that Tillman had already causod his case to be continued. The other two counties in the cir cuit, besides .-ichland and Salud, are Lexington and Kershaw, wvhich are oni opposite sides of Richiand. Lexmngt on adjoins Edgefiel d, but hias closeu tnsinuess interests with R iclIand, and it is Lexington that the counsel for the prosecution seemed to prefer. M'C0Y LEADS FE3UDISTS.

Major Crosson, Now Of Texas,, Relates In cidents Of Newberry People the days Gone By-An Interesting Letter. Among many good men, in the church, I especially noted the Rev. Mr. Galloway, Dr. A. V. and Jas. Chalmers. "'is to the virtues of such men, man owes His portion of the good that heaven bestows." M r. Galloway's sons and daughter have made his name a household word, in Seceder circles. Capt. Chal mer'a son Clark, who marrim. the daughter 3f that eminent man, Rev.. Chas. Strong, was a good useful preacher and no wonder his son has made a popular preacher. Of Dr. A. W. Chalmer's grandson, Dr. W. Hayne Leav"ll, I have heretofore written. He has a magnificent church, with a miembership of over 800. It is a joy and pleasure to me to attiend his church. He is highly in tellectual, preaching to the head but not, forgetting t,ho emotional part of our nature. His issociate proaches to the heart, not forgetting the in telloectual. They make a strong team. Dr. Leavell is a very pleas ant and entertaining gentleman. I said to him a few days since, that he was not the only distin guished man I had thrashed, that Chief Justice Y. J. Pope had On dured the same operation at my hands. This, however, was not cor rect., for when they went to school to me they were good boys. Leaving the church near Joseph teid's and nut. far from the corner of his yard where t Io railroad passes, we see on the right the stump of four largo pines. My iot her came from Scotland in 1820 and was no custoned to storms. Having soon thereafter married my father, she was driving a gig along the road, and at this point, i roaring raging, shrieking howling storm came down upon her. Frightened, she left the gig, and attempted to pass through a narrow strip of woods, when four large pine trees fell around her, enclosing her in a space of not more than twenty feet square. Joseph Roid was a very neat and good main. He married a lovely woman, the daughter of John Clary. He was cousin to my lst Lieutenant, David Reid McCormick, who was killed in hattle February 21st, 1802. Wo will hereafter resunio our walk.
