Aged Negro Pardoned,
Wesley McClure, an old negro, has
been pardoned by the governor after serv

several citizens who have written the
governor about the guilt of the convict.
At least, all agree that 'he should 'have
been pardoned long ago/ It Is shown that
the woman was of a notoriously bad
character: also that on (he night when
the offense was said to have been com

pardons recommend that he be set at lib

Peter Mobley of Houston county , has
also been pardoned by the governor. He
had a sentence of one year and a day
