The Herald and News had to say on it
last week the State newspaper na:tk
the following conriments:

the pardoning power. The nuwspaper,
of the State, even some very frieily
to his excellency, have condemtnued hi
course in this matter with inore or le
severity. Itealizirg that it is not possi

on a case the details of which are not
fully known, we have prceferred to say
nothing rather than risk being urnjtr-t,
realizing also that ant executive of h1:

to say nothing of the biandisiiments of

It seens to us that a governor would
