f VDMfmiM; ABOUT PARDONS.
A Citizen After Looking Into it Gives
His Views?Some Who Signed
^ Editor Herald ani News.
|We have been hearing so much
; about pardons and paroles, Mat i nave
* been asking some questions and finding
out some things. I find that Governor
Blease has not pardoned very
many people. He has paroled a good
many. The governor says it is best
with most people when they are turn|
ed out to put some restraint upon
^ -them, to say to them they must not
P drink wnisKey, must nor get aruns,
but must behave themselves/ \ think
that is a pretty good plan, for it helps
^ to make better citizens out of people
t who have gone astray. And some people
go- off into the bad road just because
they can't help it sometimes.
Now Governor Blease, I find, hasn't
turned out near so many people as
(they say he has. They claim he has
released over 1,200., The figures don't
show it. In this 1,200 are to be count
,* ea an tnose seut iroiu peuinsmiax^
back to the chaingang of the 44 counties
of the State, those pardoned to
i restore citizenship, those respited for
p. few days, and other ways of showing
clemency without actually turning
? a man free.
I saw a statement, the other day of
the names of many judges, solicitors,
sheriffs, and. candidates for governor
who have signed some of these petitions
that Governor Blease has acted
upon. There sure was a long list of
them. I got to wondering wnen I
L read all those names of high official s-^|k>I
got to wondering about Newberry
county. I knew some prisoners in
Newberry county, on the chaingang,
and in penitentiary from Newberry
county had been sent back home by
the governor. I wondered who signed
those petitions?or if the governor
just urned them out without any one
asking him to do so. Sc I have made
a little investigation. My goodness!
The names, the names, the names!
It would take too much of your paper,
Mr. .Editor, to put tnem all m. It
would cause you about as much
trouble to print them all as you ^ad in
printing the club rolls. So I, am not
going to ask you to publish all the
names of the people who signed these
petition?. But please publish these. I
have tried to arrange them as the club
rolls are fixed up, alphabetically, so
ycni can glance over ttem a little

i Yes sir, everyone of those names is
on at least one petition to tne governor.
And they are all good men. They
represent every walk in life almost,
the pulpit, the law, the cotton mill,
the mercantile business, the farmer,
etc. I would lc-.e to get my name in
with that class o: people, and I th;nk
T would sisrn any petition that three
o-f them had signed, for I would believe
they knew what they had signed.
i 'Now, Mr. Editor, some people have
been so unkind as to say that Governor
Blease would turn people out of
nri?nn nri thp nptitinn rvf anv class
of people. So far as Newberry county
is concerned fcne records show otherwise.
The governor has listened to
the voice of Newberry's best citizens,
some his friends, some his enemies.
And I hope that no one in Newberry
county will say anything against any
ok the men namecf above, for it would
not be right to speak ill of our best
people. I put your name in Mr. Editor,
and if any one criticizes the New
berry petitioners you must help me to
defend them. v . .. . j

It is a pocr policy to split up our |
votes among a great many candidates;
by doing so some man that the majority
does not want is apt to get a plu- i
rality in the first race and so be the
candidate in (he second race, when as
a matter of tact a big majority of people
are opposed to him. We, farmers '
and busines^ men of Lee county, wisn j
to commend ~o all our fellow South '
Carolinians our neighbor and a man
we know weli, Hon. Richard I. Man-:

Manning is first of all a successful j
farmer, and next, is a successful busficesE
iife .-i?< ****
public life is always open, who takes J
a stand to what he thinks is right, and <
does not put his honest convictions
for a stand that he does not ?
believe in but which will bring him (
votes. If elected he will make South
Carolina an able governor, conducting s
tiae affairs of the State along sound
but progressive lines. i
"United we stand; divided we (
fall." We urge every good South
Carolinian who wants to see our j
State well governed for the next two ?
years to vote for Richard I. Manning.

If you are in need now or expect to have to buy
China any time soon it will pay you to buy it before
the price advances.
The European War is bound to advance the price
on China, as it has already advanced the price on a

i I am fortunate in having a large stock of China
on hand and will sell it at the same price as long as

You will save money if you buy what you need '
