ANOTHER PARDON RECORD, j
We do not think that Governor
Hardwick of Georgia has added any-j
thing to the notable achievements 01
his administration by commuting the
sentence of the man Hudson accused
and convicted of having slain his two
step-sons. The commutation was
.J' ' ^
?frrnnnr] fVlftf: t.fip PVl
gl mi LCU wa w?w
dence on which Hudson was convict
ed #as purely circumstantial, and
there was room for some doubt of
Hudson's guilt, if not for a reason
We cannot share the view of the
Governor. There was for his consid
eration, if not for the consideration
of the court, the fact that Hudson
had confessed the crime to the sher
iff of the county. Even though under
duress, Hudson would not likely have
aUHllK/CU II15> gUlll/ IX 111 AC?\, w HO noa
innocent. In addition he was accus
ed by his wife, the mother of the
children. Under the law of Georgia
the courts could not hear her testi
mony, but the Governor, we take it,
had the right to make his own rylesj
of evidence. There is no real reason i
in morals and in fact why her testi-,
mony should not be heard.
In addition to this it should be^
noted that two small boys under j
twelve years of age were slain in
cold blood. Somebody committed the
crime. K the mother did it, and no
body' believes she killed her own
children, Hudson would know it.
JLJ U t lie UUC5 IIVI/ atLUdC HAS wuc. nc
states that negroes killed the chil
dren while he was away from his
home. This is too improbable to be
considered. A negro would not have;
killed either of the two children ex
cept under the influence of passion.
He would have had no reason to kill
the other child in such case.
On the other hand the testimony!
is that Hudson had mistreated the J
children before the time of their
death. His wife accused him of kill
ing them because they ate a water
melon which he had instructed them
not to eat. When found one of them
had a knife suitable for and pre
sumably for cutting the melon. Oth
er circumstances brought out in the
case corroborated this view. Of the
"persons who might have killed the
children, Hudson was the only one
with a motive, and only one against
whom any evidence was brought out.
It is true that the wife did not ac
cuse him of the crime at first and
subsequently rode with him to a
nearby town, but she explains this
on account of her fear of harm from

reading of the testimony in the case
as published in the Georgia papers
that Hudson was guilty. The jury
said he was guilty, and while juries
do not always get the exact truth,

case it appears to us that having com
muted the sentence of Hudson, they

"We are Like Bats," Says' One of

To Settle Differences

like bats: we can't see the was

the "Big Five" railroad brother
hoods describe the position in whicl
the running trades found them
selves tonight after their latesl
efforts to settle the great shop
men's strike, now nearing the enc
of its eight weeks. #

than a score of roads representing
approximately 30 per cent, of the
rail mileage in the United States
conferences which were called tc
order after the Association of Rail
wjay lExecu'tives ^yes/terday had
stoutly declined to yield on th<
seniority question but some of i'tf
members had indicated an interesl
in a suggestion that separate agree
ments might be possible.
Exactly 19 roads aggregating
about a quarter of the country's
mileage, were represented when the
day's first session opened at the
Yale club this morning. After .the
luncheon recess, during which the
mediators reported back to the
striking shopmen at ft he hotel
Woodstock, several more execu
tives slipped into the general con
ference, untill more than 50 main
lines and their subsidiaries were re

Meet Again Today.
Although both sides professed
themselves no nearer agreement
than whon they first went into con
ference it was evident that the door
to peace had not been entirely clos
ed for annooicememt was made that
another session had been scheduled
for tomorrow. Observers speculated
with interest upon the question of
whether more roads would send
their officials to the next meeting.
