Says Conviets are Demoralized as lie
sult of Paroles and Pardons Granted
by the Governor
Columbia. Dec. 20.-A sweeping do
nunciatioi of Governor Blease's ac
tions with regard to convicts at the
State penitentiary was made today by
the captain of the guard at the State
Capt. W. H. Sondley says fule con
victs at the prison are now deioral
ized, that discipline has been serious
ly affected by Governor 3lease's parols
and pardons and that "all tlie average
convict seems to think that it is nec
essary to violate the rules, get punish
ed and slip a letter to the governor
and his parole or 'pardon will follow."
The statement of Capt. Sondley
comes by reason of the granting of a
parole by Governor Blease to Raimon
Parris, a Newberry prisoner, who
charged that he was .punished because
he wore a Blease button. 1
The details were given in 'T'hurs
day's News and have created a sensa
tion over the state. Many of the coun
ty papers have commented on the par
ole. Parris was called to Governor
3lease's office and reiterated a state
ment contained in a letter that he
had been "picked" on by the guards
because he wore a Blease button and
registered other kicks against the
Today the stoem broke in the state
ment of the captain of the guard.
"I have been a victim of this kind
of frame-up by convicts and ex-con
victs long enough. I have never been
able to understand -why Governor
Blease should take an exparte state
ment of a convict to Injure a man
and a state Institution when he could
get the facts and the truth by simply
asking," said 'Captain W. II. Sondley,
denouncing as a "lie" the statement
of the convict named Parris who was
paroled a few days ago, following a
letter the convict ,wrote to Governor
Blease that he was being punished
because he wore a Bllease button.
"I now think the time has come for
mle 'to speak out," added Capt. Sondley.
"When it comes to discharging 'my di
ty as an officer of the penitentiary I
try and have no pets but I must con
fess that I did "show this man some
consideration on account of being
from Newberry, my native county, by
making him a trusty water boy. This
lasted as long as he proved worthy but
when he violated the rule, I called
"When he said his downfall and
punishment was caused by his wear
ing a button with Gov. Blease's picture
on it, a blacker lie was never uttered."
Capt. Sondley pointed out that the
case of Parris was submitted to Col.
Grifflith, the superintendent, before
final action was taken and the punish
ment inflicted was by the superintend
ent's direction. The cell in which
Parris was placed, says Capt Sondley,
was the man's regular cell, "as com
fortable as any other in the building".
The captain of the guard conitinued:
"I had no dlesire to inflict any greater.
punishimemit than solitary conflinement.
In the dlischarge of my duty as cap
tain or the guard I lhave al-ways tried
to be just and fair in admiinistering
dlisciplhine andl have never' knowvingly
infieted any greater punishment than
I though the case deserved."
Commending Col. 1). JT. Grmiflth, the
supierintenldent of the penitentiary,
Capt. Sendley says that "the peniteni
tiary Is liresided over by a muan who
has devoted Ils life to the interests of
South Carolina, whose word is taken
wherever lie is known, and whose bon
or' and Integrity stands wvithout a

same county and "up to a fewv months

justice would demand that I be given
a hearing botore the statement of a
convicted thief be taken, by -whose
testimony the whole administration of
the penitentiary is condemned and we
are 'denied the right accorded the
meanest criminal of not being heard
in our defense."
Charging that there is now less
discipline among the convicts and
that Governor lBlease's actions have
caused a demoralization at the peni
tontiary, the captain of the guard
concludes his statement to the pub
"It seems that Governor please had
had a pick at the 'penitentiary and its
ofilcers ever since he has -been in the
governor's oflice and I have never un
derstood it, unless lhe is catering to the
criminal element in the state.
"No one knows, except those con
nected with the peniten'tiary, the dis
order and demoralization that has
been caused nimong the convicts by his
interference and attitude lie has occu
piled. I have been connected with the
penitentiary, from time to time in one
way or another for about 20 years and
there is more disorder and less disci
pline now among the convicts than I
have ever known.
"All the average convict seems to
think that it is necessary is to violate
the rules, get punished and slip a
letter to 'the governor and his parole
or pardon will follow.
"It is a sad ceimentary on.'South
Carolina when the testimony of con
victed criminals is taken in preference
to honorable ien."
