PETITION FOR PARDON
OF GEO. W. TIDWELL
Ill in Penitentiary. 'Physicians hold
Greenville, Dec. 18.-Petitions have
been circulated in Greenville with the
ahn of appealing to Governor Manning
to grant a parole or pardon to George
W. Tidwell, who is serving a sentence
of seven. years in the state peniten
tiary for manslaughter. lie was
twice convicted of manslaughter when
tried for the murder of 1:nntett Walk
er, having appealed to the Supreme
court from the verdict of the first trial.
lie has already served about a year
in the penitentiary.
Tidwell has been desperately ill,
according to a story in the Columbia
State. Ills condition Saturday night
and several dlays last week entertained
little hope for his recovery.
While a goodly number of signa
tures were aflixed to the petition to
be presented to Governor Manning for
a pardon it is understood that certain
otlicials connected with the state are
not, at present, in synmpathy with any
move that may be started to secure
clenency for the Clinton traveling
Tidwell was first tried for murder
in the sessions court at Greenville, in
May, 1914, two months after young
Walker was shot to death at the
Caroina mill office, he was convicted
of Inanslaughter and sentenced by
Judge .ioe Mauldin to twelve years im
prisonmnent. Attorneys gave notice o
an appeal, and in the mneanwhilc (;or
ernor Blease comnInuted Tidwell's sen
tence to seven years. The Supreme
court ordered a new trial on the
ground that certair testimony offered
by the prosecution relative to Tid
well's wife was irrevelant, as the Tid
well womnan did not testify.
A year later, Tidwell was tried
again in the samne court aid the Jury
this time found hin guilty of man
slaughter, but recomnmnended him to
the Iercy of the court. A sentence of
seven years was Ilnposed.
While another notice of appeal was
pending Tidwell was out on bond in
the sum of $10,000 which has been
justified by citizens of Laurens and
Clinton. lie was later sought for oni a
charge of violating the Mann white
slave act and was arrested at Biloxi,
Mississippi, after William C. Woods
had been detained on a sililar charge.
Mrs. Tidwell was held for complicity
and as a witness in the cases against
both Tidwell and also Woods. Woods
was convicted and was given a light
sentence, while Tidwell entered a plea
I of guilty, it was reported and later
withdrew this plea and was acquitted.
lie was then turned over to South Car
olina authorities and was brought back
to Greenvil1e al, then taken to the
penitentiary at Colurnbia.-News.

be devoted to the children.
There is mutting here, bright cre

closet for working tables and iaterials
and eighteen or twenty simail chairs,
