J. STOBO YOUNG
IS GIVEN PAROLE
Will be Out of Penitentiary Until the
First Day of October When he Is to
Report Again to Sunt. Griffith.
(Nov/s pod Courier.)
Columbia, April 18.?James Stobo
Young, who was convicted along with
.lohn Y. Qarllngton of breach of trust
in connection with the Seminolc Se
curities Company and sentenced to
one year in the State Penitentiary, was
today paroled by Governor Mloase on
this condition: "Until October 1, 1012,
on which da> lie shall report in per
son to the superintendent of the South
Carolina Penitentiary for further or
ders. If be fails to so report ho shall
be arrested and recommitted to serve
the remainder of his sentence."
James Stobo Young, formerly secre
tary of the Seminolc Seeurlties Com
pany, 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, Garling
ton at the same time being sentenced
to three years. They commenced serv
ing their sentences on December 4,
1911. There have been several efforts
made to obtain executive eelemency
for Young and Garlington and recent
ly their cases went before the pardon
board, which recommended a parole
For Young, but none for Garlington,
pending a further investigation into
the latter case.
Associate Justice Watts and Assist
ant Adjt. Gen. Babb came to the Gov
ernor's office and called for the parole
for Young, and Justice Watts took it
and when Young was liberated from
the penitentiary this afternoon be ac
companied Judge Watts to Lauren. .
where Young's parents reside.

Iiis Excollency, Govehnor 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 re
spectively, January, 1910. Sentence be
gan December 4, 1911.
This is a case of State-wide noto
riety and interest. The parties in
volved are as prominently connected
HQ most anyone in the State by family
ties, business interest and otherwise.
There is in these papers as strong a
petition, we believe, as lias ever been
presented to a South Carolina execu
tive for clemency, which includes men
of the highest standing in the State,
viewed from a religious, political, bus
iness and professonal standpont. Such
men as c. c. Fentherstono, W. L. Gray,
W. G. Chlds, W. I). Simpson. N. R.
Dial. W. A. Watts, II. 15. Kennedy, J.
Wells Todd, D. A. Davis, J. W. Cope
land, O. B. Simmons, C. II. Roper, J.
I). Watts, and a great 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. .).* D.
Pitts, of the Baptist, men who have
I served these churches in Laurcns
many years. Men of a professional
'calling such as Drs. W. II. Dial. Rolph
E. Hughes, Albert F. Doty, W. A. Dy
ers. I,. A. Griffith, and many lawyers,
both of Lauren8 and Columbia. It also
bears the endorsement of nine of the
jury who tried the case, who asked for
their pardon. We also take into con
sideration that these young men were
tried for this offence in Columbia, sev
enty-live miles away from their native
home, Laurens. At the request of the
prisinors they were allowed a hearing
before this board. We will not get into
the merits of this hearing, sullice it
to say that there were statements
made in it that we believe should have
further consideration at our bands.
The mother of J. Stobo Young also ap
peared before us in their behalf. We
find among these papers communica
tions of a very bitter nature addressed
to the Governor censuring most se
verely the conduct of the petitioners
nnd not signed. These have received
all the consideration due on account
of their anonymous character. Wo
find also among these papers letters
from those we believe to be good cit
izens who are very much opposed to
the interference of tho sentence of the
court. Some of them are very bitter,
which show the feeling they have In
tbo matter, nnd it Is easily explain
ed why they nrc thus, for they them
selves or some of their friends are the
ones they feel are aggrieved nnd be
lieve they have lost, as they say, "their
hard earnings." In a number of these
lettors the Interest is fully shown in
the loss they feel, and it is perfectly
natural, slnco when a man's pocket
book is touched his spirit is aroused.
We concludo from tho above and
recommend that the petitioner, J. Sto
bo Young, bo paroled during good be
havior, and that no action be taken
for executive clemency of John Y.
Garlington pending further Investiga

After couHlderina; mopt. earnestly all
of the petitions for and against tho
above case of tho young man, I wish
to get the opinion, of the tral Judge
and the solicitor In this case before I
can make my decision regarding the
granting of a pardon or parole for
either. R, Mays Cleveland.

Laurens and the State of South Caro
lina, upon information and belief and
of my own i ersonal knowledge depose
and alarm that some time during the
month of January. 1012, one, J. T.
Crymes, or Crymes, who is the prose
cutor 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, sent
an agent or emissary who resides 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 $7r>n he would withdraw the
prosecution and give various informa
tion as to the cause why he was in
duced 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 in
formation, and which he said would
procure a pardon for Garlington .and
Young immediately. John Y. Garling
ton, being a prisoner, referred the said
agent to me. He came to my room at
the Jerome Hotel and made me these
propositions. On two occasions I had
a gentleman in the room who heard
the propositions. 1 declined the propo
sitions, as I could see no good reasons
therein, .is 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 said Crymes
one cent. G. P. Young.
