irty Pardoned in One Day.
The daily papers last Sunday
norning announced that on the
lay before, Gov. Blease granted
yardons and paroles (which
neans pardoned on condition)
o thirty prisoners in the peni
ntiarv and jails of the State.
From The State, of the 24th,
;he following is taken:
"Briefly stated, there were 11
Life prisoners freed. Nine of
hese prisoners were convicted
Af murder. One was convicted
on the charge of burglary and
arceny, and the other on the
charge of arson. Seven were
convicted on the charge of man
slaughter, the sentences ranging
from 5 to 26years. Several had
been convicted on minor charg
es, and one was pardoned to re
Of the eleven lifetime prison
ers, Samuel Reep, the Chester
county wife slayer. is the most
known. He was convicted in
November, 1899, for killing iis
young wife while she slept in
his home. The case at that
time attracted a great deal of
attention, and public sentiment
was against the man. He has
served twelve years of a life
term. The parole was granted
during good behavior.
The governor assumed office
January 17, and si.ace that time
he has granted clemency in 318
cases-137 pardons and 131 pa
Taking the estimate of statis
ticians of $500 for a conviction,
this means that the feature of
the clemency record has cost
South Carolina $158,500.
The governor, soon after en
tering office, dispensed with the
pardon board, and announced
that in the future he would- de
cide all cases of clemency."
Among those pardoned were
two from this county-Frank
Bailey and W. L. Manly.
Frank Bailey was convicted
September,, 1886, before Judge
Hudson, of burglary and larce
ny. .The original record in the
Clerk's office could not be found
and it is not known whether he
is white or colored, or whose

Manly was convicted at the
February term, this year, before
Judge Gage, for breaking jail,
injurmng public property, and
sentenced to 18 months in the
penitentiary. He was paroled
during good behavior.
Reduce the Acreage.
The plan which seems to be
most popular and feasible to
help the farmer out of his pres
nt predicament and to prevent
a repetition next year, is to re
10''e'~i6 acreage. This plan
was adopted a few days ago by
a large representative gathering
f farmers and business men in
Tzie plan, briefly stated is that
Earmers all over the South be'
asked to reduce their cotton
acreage by at least 25 per cent.
A pledge to this effect is signed
by each farmer. It is proposed
to have a county organization
in each county which shall take
active and immediate steps to
ecure the signature of every
Earmer to stich a pledge.
This is a good plan for present
relief, but it will not accomplish
permanent benefits unless ad
bered to year after year- If the
Earmers will reduce their acre
age 25 per cent. next year, it
will help the price of the present
rop, very little of which, how
ver, we fear, is in the hands of
~armers. It is certain that
)lan will not help those who
help most, for they have
