Atlanta; May 2. The testimony for
the defense in the Cox case was contin
ued throughout the whole otto-day.

testified that thev before gUjfW

eight years, Gordon agreeing to supply
sixty convicts per annum, and Cox; to
pay Gordon fifty bales of cotton yearly
rent ; Alston asked Cox if he nted to
sell his interest; Cox replied no; Alston
said Walters would buy it; Cox tbensayi
"Uot-h of you know lATiIBself ere
rything I have got except my w,ife and,
children." Cox then asked are you go
ing to sell out my interest m this
lease?" Alston then replied: "Np; I
am going to sell out General Gordons
interest subjc 1 to yonr sub-lease." Cox
said that was illriglit. On the day of

big rascal here with your knife open
and I haven't got a piece of steel on me
to try and force. me, to, terms.". Cox
then said : "Go lartd arm y&ifrself and. I
will wait for you," and "He is waiting
for me now." Witness begged Alston
to let him act as mediator and" stop the
difficultv. Alston went out soon after!
Witness followed, and found Alston
and Murphy in the treasury; Alston
with a pistol, revolving the- cylinder.
He renewed his offer to mediate and
Murphy joined in. Alston said :V Well,
so and see what you cando." He went

He insisted on seeing Cox, and Cox per
sisted in his refusal. He went back to.
hi office, and soon after Cox came in,
saying : "I want to see you." Jlheie was
a lady in the office, and Cor sat by thV
window and called witness, who went
to him and said: Ed, you ate -drank.1
Cox said : "Xo, I am not," and asked
witness to go with him to the treasu
rer's office. Witness asked what for,
and Cox would not say, so witness re
fused. Cox shddenly went tfutt withesS ; '
soon followed and fotiftd' Cbx and 'Al
ston in the treasurer's office. y Witness
testified to incidents of the fight sub
stantially as Renfroe did, and as al
ready reported. Last August' Cox and
Alston had words in witness' office
about Cox's contract with Gordon,
which had been arranged bjr Alston.
Cox told Alston if he went back on him
in this business he would kill him, and
called on witness to be a witness to the
threat. Alston told Cox not to be
afraid of him and to begin then. Wit
ness calmed the quarrel and took both
men home to dinner with him. They
were as good friends as ever, and after
dinner nursed each other's heads in
their laps on the settees. Witness
thought their relations friendly up to
the time of the killing.
Sams, who was-Cox's- Messenger to
Alston on the day of the killing-, tesjti
gedthat the message. Co sent was:
"Tell Col. Alston wMC26see him at
the barbershop." He testified that he
did all he could to stop the diftteultys'
As to the tragedy, upon all the essen
tial points witness contradicted flatly
the testimony of Renfroe, Melton and
Nelms, and his own testimony before
the coroner's jury. He was subjected
to a terrible cross-examination, and his
testimony made a bad impression on
the public. Gov. Colquitt testified to
having a conversation, a few moments
before the homicide, with Alston, when
Alston detailed to him the acts of Cox
at the barber shop, as told to Xelms,
and Alston said he; thought lie ought to
take a double-barreted shot gun and
kill Cox on sight, . Witness him; not to
take too serious a view of it, and he
(witness) would see what he could do
to stop it. Hedidgoto his office and
send Nelms to follow Cox and keep
down the difficulty. , He saw Cox cross
the street to the Capitol, with his hand
at his pocket, as if on the pistol. Al
ston said : "There goes Cox now, hunt
Walters testified to the negotiations
with Cox and Alston for the Gordon in
terest and Cox's interest; agreed to
take Gordon's for $4,000 cash, and Cox's
for $1,500, but Alston sold to Howard.
Cox did not like it, he thought. The ev
idence for the defence was closed, and
counsel said Cox was not in a condition
physically or mentally to make a state
ment until the morning, when it will
be heard and the State's rebutting evi
dence. k - "
