Columbia, April 18.?James Stobo
Young, who was convicted along with
John Y. Garlington of breach of trust
in connection with the Seminole Securities
company and sentenced to one
year in the State penitentiary, was today
paroled by Governor Blease on

on which day he shall report in person
to the superintendent of the South
Carolina penitentiary for further orders.
If he fail to so report he shall
he arrested and recommitted to serve
the remainder of his sentence."
James Stobo Young, formerly secretary
of the Seminole Securities company,
was convicted jointly with John
Y. Garlington, the president of the
Seminole company, in the Richland
county court in January, 1910, of
breach of trust and sentenced, to one
year in the State penitentiary, Gailington
at the same time being sentenced
to three years. They commenced
serving their sentence on December
4, 1911. There have been several
efforts made to obtain, executive
clemency for Young and Garlington,
and recntly their cases went berore
the pardon board, which recommended
a parole for Young, but none for Garlington,
pending a further investigation
into the latter case.

His Excellency, Governor Cole. L.
Blease, Columbia, S. C.?Dear Sir:
John Y. Garlington and J. Stobo
Young, Richland county, breach of
trust, three years and one year respectively,
January, 1910. Sentence
began December 4, 1911.
This is a case of State-wide notoriety
and interest. The parties involved
are as prominently connected
as most anyone in the State by family
ties, business interest and otherwise.
There is in these papers as strong a
petition, we believe, as has ever been
presnted to a South Carolina execuK\
tive for clemency, which includes men
of the highest standing in the State,
viewed from a religious, political, business
and professional standpoint
Such men as C. C. Featherstone, W. L.
Gray, W. G. Childs, W. D. Simpson, N,
B. Dial, W. A. Watts, H. B. Kennedy,
J. Welles Todd, D. A. Davis, J. W.
fVmeland. 0. B. Simmons, C. H. Roper,
J. D. Watts and a gerat many others
of the business world. The Rev. C.
F. Rankin, pastor of the Presbyterian
church; the Rev. Watson B. Duncan,
of the Methodist, and the Rev. J. D.
Pitts, of the Baptist, men who have
served these churches in Laurens
\ion nf a nrnfessional
Ill it II > _> cai o. j.
callftig such as Drs. H. W. Dial, Ralph
E. Hughes, Albert F. Doty, W. A. Byers,
L. A. Griffith and manv lawyers,
both of Laurens and Columbia. It also
bears the endorsfment of nine of
the jury who tried the case, who ask
for their pardon. We also take into
consideration that these young men
were tried for this offence in Colum
bia seventy-five miles away from their
native home, Laurens. At tfce request
of the prisoners they were allowed a
hearing before this board. We will
not go into the merits of this hearing,
suffice it to say that there were statements
made in it that we believe
should have further consideration at
our hands. The mother of J. Stobo
Young also appeared oeiore us in men
behalf. We find among these papers
communications of a very bittee nature
addressed to the governor censuring
most severely the conduct of
the petitioners and not signed. These
" J ^nnciHprstinn dUf1
nave receiveu an ?
on account of their anonymous character.
We find also among these papers
letters from those we belivee to J
be good citizens who are very , much
opposed to the interference of the
court. Some of them are very bitter,
which show the feeling they have in
the matter, and it is easily explained,
why they are thus, for they themselves
or some of their friends are the
ones they feel are aggrieved ana Delieve
they have lost, as they say "their
hard earnings." In a number of these
letters the interest is fully shown in
the loss they feel, and it is perfectly
natural, since when a man's pocketbook
is touched his spirit is aroused.
We conclude from the above and
recommend that the petitioner, J.
Stobo Young, be paroled during good
behavior, and that no action be taken
j for executive clemency of .John Y.
Garlington pending further investigation.
E. F. Warren,
Jas. A. Summersett,
After considering most earnestly all J
of the petitions for and against the
above case of the young man, I wish
to get the opinion of the trial judge
and the solicitor in this case before I
can make any decision regarding the
granting of a pardon or parole for
R. Mays Cleveland.
The following affidavit is attached
to the report of the board on this
I, George F. Young, of the county of
Laurens, and the State of South Car
olina, upon information and belief and
of my own personal knowledge depose
and affirm that some time during the
month of January, 1912, one, J. T.
Crymes, or Crymes, who is the prosecutor
in the case of the State of South
Carolina vs. John Y. Garlington and
James Stobo Young, and under which
said indictment they are serving a
sentence in the State, penitentiary,

in Greenwood, S. C., to the said John
Y. Garlington in the State penitentiary
with a letter signed by the said
Crymes prosecutor, stating that for
the sum of $750, he would withdraw
the prosecution and. give various information
as to the cause why he was
! induced by others to take out said war
| rant This agent further stated and
desired to wire Crymes who was ready
and willing to come and go before the
governor and give him valuable inforjmation,
and which he said would projcure
a pardon for Garlington and
Young immediately. John Y. Garlington,
being a prisoner, referred the said
agent to me. He came to my room at
I the Jerome hotel and made me these
j propositions. On two occasions I
jhad a gentleman in the room who
heard the propositions. I declined the
propositions, as I could see no good
reasons therein, as they were already
serving their time under said warrant;
and furthermore on account of
the money consideration, and stated
to the agent that I would not pay the
i said Crymes one cent.
