paper for the pardons Issued by' Qov.
Blease, many people have complained
that they are not better classified.
Recognizing that a "Pardon Column"
would till a long felt (about nine

set aside for that purpose. While it
wJJl be pur intention to give under this
betid till the pardons that are issued

that all of them will be found, for the
rapidity with which they are issued
will make the job a bard one to keep

space, only those pardons that have
been issued within the past few days
will be entered under tl U head at this
time. We do not bind ourselves to pub

made known, we will reserve the right
to publish elsewhere and In a more
