ing hurrah for Blease.
R. K. Lewis.
(\r. Lewis will excuse us.
We do not want to get ico
Gov. Blease's shoes, nor the
other fellow's either. especial
lv while Blease is governor, as
no pardon could be had. "No
Jones man need appl.-Ed.")
Pardons by Blease
Having heard so much about
the pardons by Gov. Blease, and
that he has said that the judges
and solicitors recommended a
great number of them, I secur
ed what is call -d his "book on
pardons for one year." It is his
report to the general assembly
and contains his pardons with
his reasons for the same. After
looking over it hastily, I noticed
that about 70 were pardoned. Of
these 70, the judge and solicitor
signed about 10, and they sepa
rately signed about 10 more, in
all making about 20 out of 70
signed by either or both of them
There were 247 paroles. Of this
number, the judge and solicitor
together signed about 25, and
separately about 20 more, mak
ing in all about 45 out of 247.
This will show that the judges
and solicitors, either or both,
signed petitions for 65 of the en
tire 317 pardoned or paroled.
This leaves 252 released by the
governor without the recom
mendation of either the judge
or solicitor. In a number of in
stances I notice that some of the
jurymen siged the petaion, In
other cases were words like this:
'After carefully reviewing the
case I decided that the prisoner
had been sufficiently punished
andl the law vindicated, etc."
This shows that most of Gov.
Blease's pardons and paroles
were not signed by the judge or
solicitor, but by some of the Iiu
rors or others, and that many
were signed upon his own no
tions. When the jurors try a
case they are under oath to ren
der a yerdict according to the
evidence and law. When they
sign a petition they are under
no such oath and are likely to
sign it through some versonal
influence brought to bear or
through a desire to favor some
oe. Such a petition is not suf
ficient reason for the governor
to set aside the decisions of our
courts and jurors, rendered un
der oath, and the laws of our
legislators. It is very easy to
get a petition from people when
they are not under oath. But
the governor is bound all the
time under a solemn gath to dle
fend and execute the 4iws. I
dont remember sf the governor
complaining in his [Emessage to
the legislature that the law by
which sentence is passed was
wrong, but from the nurn ber of
pardons granted, one would cer
tainly think that the governor
views it that way. If such is
the desire of the people, then let
us have the law changed, jabol
ishing our criminal laws and
the courts. If such is not the
wishes of the neople, then let us
elect as governor a man who
will not allow his sympathies to
extend only to the criminal class
I think this is one of the govern
or's greatest mistakes. True,
he does pardon some, as all gov
erors do, that the mass of the
people would think justifiable
if they understood the nature of
the case, but to b)e so 9leaiient in
excting the law; as I look at
it, is en couraging crime among
a cerIta1in (lass of people.
It also appears that Governor
Blase is at varience with every
branch of our government. This
should not be so. It shows that
he is not a good leader and head
of our government. It is true
that men sometimes have differ
ences of opinions, but to be at
varience with every branch of
our govern..ent would indicate
that our whole government is
wrong or the governor is wrong.
Governor Blease represents
only those who support' them.
and instead of being gdyernor
f the whole State, he says he
i governor of *his friends only.'
How any honest man can sup
ort a man of that principle, I
cannot see. I will never vote
for any man w~ho makes the
man that differs with him an
enemy. It is an insult to a man
of character and honesty to ask
a favor and say, "I voted for
vnu "' et that is the ground
on which Blease grants fnvers

Let us all set a.zi: all manhnr
of contention and consider very

our State and to that end cast

I am led to believe that ver,
few consider Blease a stron,
statesman, nor anything al ut
his manner of business winning.
but many become enthusiast le
for him because he is fight ing
the other fellow and wdvocating
certain econoimonv in conn
tion with our institutions of
higher learning and special jutdg -
es. While 1 favor economy in
these matters, how can we hou
for any profit or credit to the
State with such a man as Blease
for governor?
I am for Jones. His long aid
faithful service always com
manded the support of our pres
ent governor. Now. because
Jones in a spirIt of patriotism
opposes him, the governor tries
to lead us to believe otherwise
of Jones' life record. Let ever
ything be said that can be, his
record of long service without
one stain upon his life as a pub

Jones to the confidence of the

That Railroad.
