SENTENCE INFORGE
WHILE ON PAROLE
SUPREME COURT ORDERS GROVER
CROOKS RELEASED FROM
CUSTODY.
RULING IS OF WIDE EFFECT
Decision Handed Down is of Much
Importance; Governor Was With
out Authority.
Columbia.
Holding that the sentence against
a prisoner out under a parole from the
governor continues to run while the
prisoner is at liberty, the supreme
court recently handed down a decis
ion ordering Col. A. K. Sanders, su
perintendent of the penitentiary, to
release Grover Crooks from his cus
tody.
Crooks was convicted of assault and
battery in Oconee county in Novem
ber. 1916. and sentenced to serve six
years. He was paroled December 22,
1921, by Governor Cooper "during goodI
behavior" and September 13, 1922,
Governor Harvey revoked the parole
because Crooks ,he said, had violated
its terms.
In the decision handed down, writ-;
ten by Justice Marion and concurred
in by Justices Watts, Fraser and
Cothran, the court said that the pa
role granted Crooks did not suspend
his sentence, but that.Crooks remain
ed in contemplation of the law as if
in legal custody and continued to
serve his sentence. Chief Justice Gary
dissented from the opinion. Crooks'
sentence had expired by virtue of the
operation of the law on April 5, 1922,
and there was no further service due
the state by the petitioner, the court
holds.
The court draws a distinction be
tween "suspended sentence" and "con
ditional pardon" along with "parole."
The governor could grant a condi
tional pardon or suspend a sentence
and a prisoner would be liable to com
plete the remainder of his sentence
if the governor saw fit to revoke his
act giving clemency, the court says.
Crooks was in the custody of the
sheriff of Oconee county at the time
his parole was revoked. being under
charges of breach of the peace. The
court orders him returned to the
sheriff. The case was argued before
the court on a petition for writ of
habeas corpus, taken out before Jus
tice Watts, but returnable before the
full court.
The recent decision was of far
reaching-effect. It applies to the Reed
Shaw case in Anderson, Judge Prince.
having released Shaw under habeas
corpus proceedings because he held
that Shaw's sentence had expired. The
court, while not considering the Shaw
case, upholds the action of Judge
Prince. Shaw's parole was revoked by
Governor Harvey after his sentence
had expired, consideriig that it ran
concurrently with the p'arole and was
not held in abeyance, as was decided
in the opinion. Several other cases
are likely to devely within a short
time.
Revenue Comes From New Law.
Nearly $2,000,000 has already been
collected this year from the new rev
enue bills, taking into consideration
the 01(1 three-mill corporation licenseI
tax and the domestic corporation li
cense tax, according to figures com
piled by S. T. Carter, state treasurer.
The exact amount, including collec
tions for November 17, w~as announced
at $1,802,063.87.
Of this total the income tax money
was far ahead with $909,896.99 andi
the gasoline tax was second w'th
$529,163.05 to date. The income taxc
has already reached a figure higher
than was expected when the lawv was
at - first put into operation, but has
not yet attained the mark estimated
by the free conference on the general
appropriation bill this year. They es
timated the tax would bring in a rev
enue of $1.000 000 and this figure may
he reach before the end of the current
year.
Of the $909,693.99 some $10.000 will
have to be refunded, Mr. Carter esti
mated, some overpayments having
been made. Thd furieign corporation
annual license fee has brought in $51,
666.53 to (late and the domestic corpor.
ation capital stock license fee has noet
ted $22Z,845.57, according to Mr. Car
ter's tabulation. The three-mill license
tax amounted to $88,704.23.
The income tax collection is not
yet complete and threo more months
are yet to run on the gasoline tax.
The gasoline tax will for the ten
months of the year amount to some
.thing over $700 000, judging by the
records of the past seven, months. The
tax was not operative until Marci

The state highway conimissio
adopted a plan whereby it -is hopeo
to stop the universal abuse'o; demon.
stration plates by dealers throughout
South Carolina. The commission adopt
ed the suggestion of a committee of
the Columbia Automotive Trades as
sociation and will hereafter issue to
dealers demonstration places equal
to the number, af bona-fide salesmen
employed by each dealer and the
plates will be :ssued personally to each
salesman.
The commission also increased the
price of the plates from 50 cents to
$2.00 in an effort to stop the abuse.
An affidavit will be necessary from
every dealer before the demonstra.
tion plate is issued,' under the new
plan adopted by the commission.'
Dealers all over the state have vio
lated the privileges of the demonstra
tion plates, according to the commis
sion, and several weeks ago an ffort
was started to arrive at some plan to
stop this general abuse. At the Octo
ber meeting of the commission Frank
Gibbes, Clarence M. Asbill and Rob
ert D. Lambeth appeared in behalf of
the Columbia Automotive Trades as
sociation and suggested the plan that
was adopted. The increase front 50
cents to $2.00 was thought advisable
as this will in a measure cause dealers
to be more careful, it is thought.
Prof. Walter Rowe, head of the civil
engineering department of the univer
sity, appeared and discussed plans for
a road institute to be held under the
auspices of the university and the
highway department similar to former
institutes held. The late Prof. M.
Goode Homes originated the road insti
tute plan. The commission pledged
Its hearty support to the plan. It
Is planned to hold the institute early
In February.
C. J. Hill, chairman of the Aiken
county highway commission; Dr. W. A.
W'litlock and J. E. Yaun, members of
the commission, and J. H. Shuler, en
gineer, appeared to renew their re
quest for $10,000 additional federal aid
for the Ninety-Six road and $45,000 for
the Sand Bar ferry and Ellenton high
way to connect with the new Sand
Baar Ferry bridge. The commission
pledged the $10,000 for the Ninety-Six
roan from first funds available, but de
ferred action on the $45,000 request.
Engineer Moorefield was instructed
to utilize available funds up to $10,000
on the road project from Blackstock to
Winnsboro.
Considerable attention was devoted
to matters to be reported to the leg
islature and Chairman R. Goodwyn
R.hett, Commissioner C. O. Hearon and
Engineer Charles H. Moorefield were
requested to prepare recommendations
to be made to the general assembly.
Some new plan for maintenance wil
be drawn up in the hope of obtaining
legislative action in favor of more
money to keep up the roads and the
matter of eliminpting grade crossings
will be dealt with. Repair of roads in
the counties is causing the commission
considerable thought and this will be
another subject in the recommenda
tions.
Arrangements have been made, the
commission announced, whereby Aiken
county will build the -atesburg-Mo.
netta road from a point near Monetta
to the Saluda county line.
