REASONS WHY FOR
Governor Submits Annual Pardon
Book to the Legislature Giving lien.
sons for Leniency in Many Cases,
Columbia, Jan. 22.-Why Gov. Cole
L. Blaso granted 'pardons, paroles
and commutations of sentence to hun
dreds of convicts last -year Is set
forth in a message transmitted to the
legislature. It is printed in a book
of 333 pages. Since assuming office,
three years ago, Governor BUlease has
extended clemency in 982 cases.
The striking feature of the -report
is the bold manner In which he ex
presses his opinion of negroes. He
speaks of them as "on the order of
"The negro race," he asserts, "has
absolutely no standard of morality.
They are, in that respect, a class by
themselves, as marital infidelity seems
to be their most favorite pastime."
The governor remarks, in reporting
that he has paroled J. E. Murray, a
negro bigamist: "If every negro in
this state that is guilty of bigamy or
marital infidelity is brought up and
convicted, labor will be much scarcer
than it is and many acres that ire
now cultivated will be idle."
Time and again in reporting the
liberation of white men convicted of
criminal assaults on negro women,
Governor Blcase declares the charge
is ri(liculous-that. such a cri-me can
not be committed on a negro woman.
-le expressed in very plain language
the belief that a pure negro woman
is an unbend of prodigy.
"Did Exactly Right."
In reporting that he had granted
"with much pleasure" free and full
pardons to three white men convicted
of assault and battery on two negroes,
Governor Blease states that the blacks
had 'been engaging in dirty and slan
derous talk "and a party of white gen
tlemen took these two negroes to the
woods and gave them what they de
served--a genuine, Ifirst-class whip
-ping." These "white gentlemen," the
governor says, "did exactly right."
In telling of paamrole granted t'o
!Sam Gaskin, y negro convicted of
manslaughter, Governor Blease says:
"This negro, being engaged to a negro
girl, called to see her, and in fooling
with a -pistol, it went off and killed
her. It seems to have been a very
sad accident; however, after a second
thought, possibly it was for the good
of humanity; for had they married
no doubt they would have brought
forth more negroes to the future det
-'iment of the state."
Commenting on his action in com
muting the sentence of Stake Morris,
a negro murderer, from death to life
imprison maent, the governor says:
"This defendant wits convicted. of
killing another negro. I am natually
against electrocuting or hanging one
negro for killing another; because, if
a man had two fine mules running
lopse in a lot and one went mad and
kicked and killed the other, he cer
tainly woutld not take his gun and
shoot the other mule, but would take
that tmule and work it; therefore, I be
lieve that when one negro kills an
other he shottld be paut in the peniten
tiary and made to wot'k for the state.
Notwithstanding the contemnptuous
attitude which he assumes towards
negroes as a class, Governor lhease,
in the message expiresseA comp~assion
for 'individual ne~roes wvho, he says,
have been lii treated in the pen iton
tiary and frequently gives as a reason
for liberating black Cb11Vet that they
a'r "white 'anhn's tiegroes."
Snya~ Negro Was Tortured.
In atelling of a parole granted to
IEimeotn Ellis, a negr'o murtderer, Gov
ernor Blease submits letters to the
effect that the negr'o wias cruelly tor
turtedl by the penitentiat'y authorities
for' speaking to the govet'nor one day
without the guard's perintallsion. 1li1is,
it is said, was 5enlteneC(d to the stocks,
given 4i5 lashes and~ totrturedl fotr mot'e
than a half hour' with a stt'ong elect
trle battery. "IHis screams and efles
and piteous appleals for mnet'y,"~ the
rep~ort says, "could be heard all over
the 'penitentiary gr'oundA."'
Numerctous dithmer eases of 'alleged
cruelty to prisone-rs are cited by Gov
erntor' llease i1n excutse of his exten
sion of 'eliency. He says he pet'
sonally investigated many of theta.
Many' convicts were libet'ated lby (Gov
enfaor lease as a resutlt of their wr'it
lng .pitiful lettet's to htim, and the ap
ieals of the wives and children of
convicts also have had gt'eat influ
ence with the exectutive. In his re
port, Govet'nor' Blease pictur'es many
scenes of sort'ow andl desolatiotn, cauts
Od by the itncarceration of bread-win
fThe Enmmerson Parole.
One reason given for the pat'oling
of J1. AlholentImrson, a mut'derer,
is that the convict's sister's htealth
has beena broken by the gt'ief caused
lay lisk imiprisonment.
"l~er life." says (Gover'nor Blease,
"is worth more to her and her chil
dren andl is wot'th mor'e to the cit
i'7enis''iu and the motherhoodl of thtis
country than .the innareration of hem'
brother is worth to the state."
Not infrequently the governor, In
his roport, speaks-scornfully or angri
ly of the prosecutors of the convicts
whom he has released.
'In telling why he pardoned Frank
Stone, who was convicted of obtain
ing goods under false pretenses, Gov
ernor -Blease says: "It seems that this
party and the prosecu.tor traded hors
es, and this is what brought about the
indictment. F!ron the evidence pre
sented in the case, it shows that the
horse was supposed to have been blind
in one eye and partially blind in the
other. This was a defect which could
very esaily have been detected by both
parties. There is no excuse for a
man saying that a blind horse was put
off upon him, unilca he was either
blind or drunk at the time, and there
is no evidence to show that the prose
cutor was either. Therefore, he should
have been too much of a man to con
plail for the only purpose people have
for trading horses is to improve. If
A trades with 13., A expects to get the
best of the bargain, or A would not
trade. When B. trades with A, be be
lieves he got the best of the bargain
or he would not have traded. Therefore
when either one of them gets stung,
there should be no complaint."
In granting clemency to Bud Wil
lis, a white man convicted on the evi
dence of private detectives of violat
ing the liquor laws, Governor 3lease
fiercely denotinces private detectives.
"I have no sympathy for such a
breed of cattle, calling themselves
human beings; they a'e a disgrace to
the name detective and I take great
pleasure in setting aside the convjc
tion and giving this young man a free
and unlimited pardon."
-In explaining why lie paroled Er
nest T. Birewington, a white man con
victed of non-stuport of his wife, (ov
ernor ilease says: "it seems that this
boy was forcibly made to marry this
girl, who most probably was iot of as
good moral chartcter as she shou(ldl
have been, 111d that as soon as the
cerc::ony was over and lie could get
hiimself free and loose, lie deserted
her' and declined to have anything to
do with her. I think he was a fool for
marrying her, if the facts as stated
are true, because, uinder the law of
South Carolina, where he could not
get a divorce, I would rather risk be
ing shot or risk mlly chances of leaving
the state and going somewhere else,
than risk getting loose after getting
"The Way of Faith."
In reporting a parole granted to
John M. Quinn, who was convicted of
bre::iking into and robbing the otice of
a religious magazine called "The Way
of Faith," Governor lilease says: "As
he was following the way of faith, or
at least attempting to entor into the
way of faith, I have thought fit to give
him the opportunity to go forth and
make a man of himself and, therefore,
grianteId him a parole."-Spartanburg
