Politics and Prejudice Aainst H u
If the newspaper critics of Gov.
Blease for the manner in which he
has used the pardon-parole power of
his position would take the pains to
examine into the reasons and the
character of the petitions going to the
goveriAor in these matters with facts
and conditions set forth, criticisms'
would be of a different character.
For example a parole was given a
man from Marion county. The peti
tion of this man had on it the sena
tors and members of the house from
three counties, the main portion of the
officials of the three counties, and
quite a number of bankers, business
men, and prominent citizens of these
t-%6re'e counties, Marlboro, Mari-n and:
Dillon with an affidavit from the pro
secutor that she was to b,am,t in the
The editor of the Messenger took
the time, the trouble and the expense
to investigate some of these things
and he found that in the main what
has been done in paraons and paroles
has been done in accord with the
-civic righteousness, justice and needs
of civil government. It was an out
rage upon justice and fair govern
ment for the predecessor of the pres
ent governor to allow a petition to
remain two years in his office signed
by the solicitor, judge, trial jury, and
largely the citizenship of the county,
asking for the pardon of a man con
victed by mistake as stated of -the!
crime charged, unacted upon. Human
nature is frail, weak and full of mis
takes and when the court officials
find themselves in error and present
these errors to the governor, justice
demands action and not two years
pigeon-holing of such petitions. Gov
ernor Blease did that which Governor
Ansel ought to have done two years
--before, pardoned *the man in this case.
Again when a community joins almost
unanimously in asking the release of
a man in prison the governor can well'
afford to send back to that community
the man asked for. No man has a
right to sign a petition for the pardon
or the parole of a man in prison un
less he means what the petititm says
to the pardoning power.
A very pathetic case went up .to the
governor a few days ago. In the heat
of passion of the moment a man-a
common laborer-violated the law,
was convicted and sent to the peni
tentiary. This man left a wife avd
two children, helpless and without his
wages, starviug. The community that
sent the man to the penitentiary did
not ,care for the wife and babies. j
Friends paid her way to Columbia.
She went to the governor with 'ne
babe in her arms and the other har.g
ing to her skirts. begging for bread!
-something to eat mama. The gov-:]
ernor placed a half dor!ar inl the]
bands of the ibegging and., s4urvng
child. Mamma! Mamma! Sfoney!
Something to eat, erred the hungry,
child, we can now get somnethinig to
eat. A quarter was placed in zh hand
of the child in the mother's arms. It
cried money, Mamma: br a.t, bread'
Governor Blease sent for -ha hus bandl,
paroled him and let him go to sup- I
port a starving wife and children.
Was this humanity or the work of a
heartless man? The man paroled 4
was not a mean man as so said, but
poor and helpless.
Governor Blease was right. The c
community -which did not support the
helpless wife, mother and children of
the unfortunate poor man is more,(
much more censurable than Governor
Blease. Instead of condemnation in
these matters Governor Blease deser
ve the commendation of all benevol-'
ent Christian people for this judicious
exercise of his power as governor of~
South Carolina. The cold, caloused,
conscienceless dollar may bring an
wer for such clemency, but never

mothers of the grand old State of 3
Sickly sentimentality never redeem
-man nor made men and women out of.
the fallen, sinful mankind. We say
boldly that Governor Blease was right:
in paroling these parties.
The beauTY about buying the Hatton
property which is to be sold in May
at auction,~ is this: You can buy a lot*
that is valuable for business purposes
and get it with a dwelling on it and;
the rent for the dwelling will pay
most or all of your interest. This is
important for then you can hold to it
as long as you want to, and the in-:
terest is not eating you up.
