l- WHY HARDWICK REFUSED ty
ty TO INTERVENE IN THE ty
DuPRE CASE. ty
I? ?I? ?I* 4* ?I? ?i? ?I? ty ty ty ty ty ty
Shortly before the execution of
Frank Du Pre In Atlanta a few days
ago, Governor Titos. \V. Hardwick,
of Georgia, who had been annealed
to to Intervene and commute a death
sentence to that of life Imprison
ment, made tho following statement
as to why his conscience would not
permit sentimentality to override his
convictions in tho matter:
. Why Hardwick Refused.
"Of courso, 1 am not without sym
pathy and respect fpr tho views of
many tondor-hoartod persons -
largoly women-who have urged ex
ecutive clemency /for the applicant.
(Frank Du Pre). I understand and
appreciate tho human sympathy and
the deep and true Christian charity
which animates Chem in this matter.
.My own heart is touched by their
appefyl, but, bocause of my honest
judgment and conscience, I cannot
yield to sentiment of this kind with
out being absolutely false to my
duly, to society and to the public.
The sympathy in this case should not
ho aroused entirely in behalf of tho
youthful bandit, who gloated over
his deeds of theft and murder until
lie was actually to face the penalty,
whoso repentance carno when bc waa
in the clutches of the law, and not
before he was apprehended, what
of the faithful, law-abiding man. Mr.
Walker, who sleeps In an untimely
grave, sent there by DuPro's act? ls
there nc/ sympathy for him? What
of tho little woman who is widowed
by his act? ls there no sympathy for
her? What of tho seven-year-old or
phan, made so by him? Is there no
sympathy for her"; ls there no sym
pathy for tho fatherless girl who has
been deprived of the support and of
tho protecting care of her father
through all her life? If DuPre was
motherless, he had made this little
child fatherless. If DuPre was young
ho was at least a man old enough
to enlist in the navy of his country
and to meet all of Its mental and
physical tests in doing so, and is at
least considerably older than tho
child whom he made fatherless.
"Dut my action in ibis case does
not rest on the law of 'an eye for an
eye, a tooth for a tooth.' It rests on
a broader, deeper, truer principle
than that. Unless our'boys, who may
even now have embarked on a simi
lar path to that pursued by this apr
pticant, who may be niling them
selves with cheap and poisonous
liquor, who may bo associating with
'-'amblers and prostitutes, are check
ed in their mad courses of crino-,
who can tell how many orphans will
be made in Georgia hy their conduct?
Who can tell how many innocent
men-even Innocent by-standers
may lose their precious lives before
the time appointed hy Providence?
' It is to protect society, to save these
! other women from being made wid
ows, these other men from being
slain, thoso other children from be
ing made orphans, that it is neces
sary-and absolutely necessary
that tho supremo penality of the law
bo executed upon this applicant. It
is to give to them and to all of them
in this State and throughout this
country the most solemn and im
pressive warning that can be given
in the name of tho law and in tho
name of civilized society, and In tho
namo of organized government. An
appalling and increasing number of
violent crimes, of every sort, are oc
curring in our midst-a crime wave,
world-wide in its sweep, has not
spared or missed our State. While
tho situation is not worse in Georgia
than in other States, nor in this coun
try than in other countries, it is ap
palling, evorywhere, and tho sternest
measures aro necessary to check it.
"The supremo penalty of the law
i has been passed upon this man by
i i n impartial jury of twelve, honest
n >n of Fulton county, lt has been
held by an abie, upright and im
? a lal judge. It has boon upheld by
he uprOmo Court of Georgia, und,
hi ' by tho unanimous recoihirton
dati of tho throe able-and upright
men \s IO constitute the prison com
mission of Georgia, acting on a board
of pardons. To all of the. .. findings
I must give weight. Nothing has de
. velopod since tho trial to in any way
.affect or alter tho case. Guilt. Is still
undisputed, still undented and still
proven. Under theso circumstances
I feel It to bo my sworn duty, before
God and nvnn, to allow tho law to
ta ko its courso.''

On land adapted to its growth
crimson , clover ls "ono of the best
wintor soil-building cover crops, for
one acre of fairly fertile land will
produce five to ton tons of groen
growth.'that contains, per ton, ap
proximately eight pounds of nitro
gen, which is gathered from tho air
by tho bacteria on tho roots of tho
clover. Hostiles converting tho afr
nitrogen into a form useful to, the
farmer, tho clover saves the plant
food already available in tho soil by
using it In its growth and thus pro
venting loss by Leaching and erosion
during tho wintor.
Tho agronomists say that for host
rosults crimson clover should not be
sown on very poor sandy or hard
clay' soils. Vetch, rye and oats aro
the best wintor cover crops for those
soils, lt is essential that crimson
clover bo inoculated unless it or ono
of the true clovers has boen' pre
viously grown on tho land.

to 20 pounds of oleaned seed per

Sowing just before or just after a
good rain will practically insure a

cotton middles after the first or sec
