WRIGHT, STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, > County of Claiborne. ) To His Excellency James K. Var danian, Governor of the State of Mississippi : The undersigned, citizens of an<il residents in the County of Clai borne, State of Mississippi, re spectfully represent unto Your Ex cellency : ist. That at the June term, A D. 1905, of the Circuit Court in and for the County of Claiborne, State ! of Mississippi, J. E. Regan, in the case of the State of Mississippi vs. J. E. Regan, was convicted of the crime of murder and sentenced to death ; that he was charged wfth murdering one Jason Moody, late of said County and State ; that the homicide occurred on the 7th day of May, A. D. 1905, near the village of Carlisle and on the boundary line between' the Third and Fourth Districts in said Coun t y. 2nd. That a full record of all the evidence in said case is now on file in the Supreme Court of the State of Mississippi, to which rec ord as part of this petition refer ence is respectfully made. That on the day of the homicide the said Regan surrendered himself and wau immediately confined in the county jail and has been so confined from that date to the present time ; that, in the opinion I 0 f the undersigned popular opin ion was more than u3 ually stimu J ] a ted and excited, and so remained up to and until after the convic tion of the said Regan: that, I his case was prejudged in the general mind before it was heard in the Circuit Court; that said Regan applied for a change of venue in consequence thereof, but in the form of making such proof the Judge of the Circuit Court determined that the cause for ehange of venue was not made out ; that, in the very nature of . I things, such feeling exists in the public mind without ability in al most all cases to get the requisite testimony. 3rd. i*hat so great was the feel ing in connection with this case that it was with the utmost diffi culty witnesses could be had to testify ; and that since said con vtction, as shown by letter hereto attachcd , witnesses are „ow raak by reason of the rules of evidence, can never get before the trial jury, ing known what they before sup pressed. 4th That very many things, but can be and will be brought to the notice of Your Excellency in an application such as this. 5 th. That, in addition to the rec ord now on file in the Supreme Court, facts which have come to light since the conviction of said Regan will be presented to Yonr Excellency ; all of which facts in dicate that Regan had just cause to believe that his life was in danger from said Moody, and that he was apparently seeking to avoid counter with Moody and his date, Shannon', until such encoun ter was forced upon him in front of his own property at the town of Carlisle, on the sidewalk where he had a right to be. 6th. The undersigned respectful | y pray Your Excellency to re prieve said J. E. Regan and to commute said sentence to imprison ment for life in the penitentiary ; that, in the judgment of the ttnder signed, all the facts and eircura stances do not justify the extreme penalty imposed by the Court. Respectfully submitted this 19th day of February, A. D. 1906. an en asso COPY OF LETTER. Utica, Miss., Feb. 14th, 1906. Capt. Jno. McC. Martin, Port Gibson, Miss. Dear Sir and Friend:—I have just seen by the papers that the case of Ed Regan's was affirmed by the Supreme Court and his execu tion set for April 5th. I have no interest in the matter farther than so far as justice is con cerned, and what little I know of the case, I certainly do not think he should hang. I was In Carlisle waiting for the train, having been down on my place near there. When I came over to the station I went op to Re gan's store to see him on some bus iness, and while there, he men tioned having had a little fuss with Eli Shannon that morning, and seemed to be perfectly calm, and so far as ne was concerned the matter was all over with him, did not seem to be in the least mad with Moody. I went back to the depot to take the train in company with my wife, and while there, I saw Shannon and Moody talking together as though they were both mad, and I asked Shannon what was the trouble, and he told me something about he and Regan's fuss in the morning, and made the remark to me that if Regan came down to the train that evening he was going to put a bullet through him. I told him he had better let the matter drop, as there would be trouble if he did not. Regan came to the depot a few minutes later and walked to the front door of the of fice, and stood there a few minutes; in the meantime Shannon and Moody came to the back door, and fearing that Shannon would carry out his threat I commenced talking to him about something else to keep them from starting the trouble I again, and Regan never joined in conversation, and I was sure that everything was quiet, and there would be nothing more of it. The train came and I left for Utica. It seems that after the train lef some one went up and told Regan of the threats that had been made and you know the rest. I think Shannon and Moody had been drinking there all day. Regan nev er drank and was perfectly sober when I was talking to him. I hope something can be done to save his life, for be was certainly not the aggressor, and had they let him alone Moody would be living to-day. Your Friend, I J. R. JONES.
