At-Iiasy, N. Y.. Dec. 20. - Krlanil S.
Parttcr, sentenced Octobor 13, 1872, from
Krlo County for murder In the second degroe,
to llfo Iraprlsonmeut at Auburn Prison, has
been pardoned by Governor lllll. Thu olr.
cunistanccs of tho crime charged ntralnst this
convict as developed beforo tho coroutr's Jury,
aro somewhat peculiar.
The convict after hU rotitrn from llio civil
war, having received on hoiiorabludl'ebargo
fiom tbo Federal Army, worked as it farm
hand up to tho time of his arrest. On tho day
the crime wns charged to havo bcoti commit
ted, ho drovo from tho farm where ho was
employed to Buffalo. Ho arrived In tlialclty
iu the morning, and beforo depnrturo became
Intoxicated. At nigbt he and an acquaintance
visited ii low negro dive, and tbero the con
vict Invited a white worniiu to co homo with
Iilin, saving sho would bo given employment
on tho farm of bis employer. Sim consented,
nnd the thrco drovo awny together. Thoy
stopped several times to drink, and thowholo
party became very diuuk.
A short distance out of thccltyt tbo convict' s
rualo companion got out of tho irngon ntid re
turned. From this point tho woman was seen
allvo but onco afterward. Ono Wlgcs sworo
that ho raw tho convict driving alone; at u
furious rate; that tho woman w-n3 standing tu
tbo wagon, nnd ho was beating her with a
whip. Two days later she wns found In A
country schoulhoiise dead. The examination
showed that death wii caused by the neck be
ItJit broken. Soon after l'url.cr was arrested.
lie told tho 6lory substantially as above, but
said tho woman, whlto bo was driving fast,
fell over tho wnaon; that he. supposing her to
bo in a driibkoti stupor, placed her" In tho
pchoolhoute expecting that when sho became
sober, shu would rcluru to tho city. Ho de
nied that bo knew sho wns dead or that bo
struck hor with a whip. On Ids trial, by ad
vice of his counsel, ho pleaded guilty to avoli'
conviction of a higher crime.
Tho District Attorney, In coinmuntlne o
tbo facts, aaja ho failed to dlscoicr any motivo
for the crime. Tho ludrro nreildlnsr at Iho
trial Is long slnco dead, but It was shown that
bo favored recommending u pardon nt tho end
of thrco or four ) ears. Tbo cntlro circum
stances tend to show that tbo convict's story
was true. Ills conduct In prison has been
oxcmplary, and while his parents nro dead, hU
sisters ask for his release
It Is Into that there must always remain n
doubt of the convict's Innocence, but tho doubt
of bis guilt must continue to bo as strouc lu
tho belief that ho will becomo a good citizen it
discharged, the Governor says: "I havo de
termined to giro blm tbo benefit of tho doubt
by remitting his term ot Imprlsoumcnt."
