Harrisburg Five
Ready For Shamokin
Harrisburg will line up against Sha
mokin, one of the strongest fives in
Central Pennsylvania, at the Armory
to-night. This game is of special im
portance because of the fact that
Shamokin is made up of former Penn
State and Bucknell stars and have
played two games with Harrisburg,
each team having scored a victory.
The game to-night will be fast, as
the work of the locals during the past
two weeks has been both speedy and
sensational, but Shamokin will also
have something to attract the fans, as
they have two star shooters in their
line-up, and a great battle can be ex
pected. The game will be followed

Gives Series of Reasons in Booklet
Sent to Members of the
Special to The Telegraph
Columbia, S. C., Jan. 24. Why
Governor Cole L. Blease granted par
dons, paroles and commutations of
sentence to hundreds of convicts last
year is set forth In a message trans
mitted to the Legislature. It is a
printed book of 38 3 pages. Since as
suming office three years ago Gover
nor Blease has extended clemency In
982 cases.
The striking feature of the report
is the bold manner in which he ex
presses his opinion of negroes. He
speaks of them as "on the order of
lower animals."
"Then egro race," he asserts, "has
absolutely no standard of morality.
They are, in that respect, a class by
themselves, as marital infidelity seems
to be their most favorite pastime."
The Governor remarks, in report
ing that he has paroled J. E. Murray,
a negro bigamist: "If every negro In
this State that is guilty of bigamy or
marital infidelity is brought up and
convicted labor will be much scarcer
than it is, and many acres that are
now cultivated will be idle."
Could Be No Assaults
Time and again in reporting the lib
eration of white men convicted of
criminal assaults on negro women,
Governor Blease declares, the charge
is ridiculous —that such a crime can
not be committed on a negro woman.
He expresses in very plain language
the belief that a pure negro woman is
an unheard of prodigy.
In telling of a parole granted to
Sam Gaskins, a negro convicted of
manslaughter, Governor Blease says:
"This negro, being engaged to a negro
girl, called to see her, and in fooling
with a pistol it went off and killed
her. It seems to have been a very sad
accident; however, after a second
thought possibly it was for the good
of humanity, for had they married no
doubt they would have brought forth
more negroes to the future detriment
of the State."
No Crime to Kill Another
Commenting on his action in com
muting the sentence of Stake Morris,
a negro murderer, from death to life
imprisonment, the Governor says:
"This defendant was convicted of
killing another negro. lam naturally
against electrocuting or hanging one
negro for killing another, because if
a. man had two fine mules running
loose in a lot and one went mad and
kicked and killed the other, he cer
tainly would not take his gun and
shoot the other mule, but would take
that mule ami work it: therefore, I
believe that when one negro kills an
other he should he put in the peni
tentiary and made to work for the
Notwithstanding the contemptuous
attitude which he assumes toward ne
groes as a class, Governor Blease in
the message expresses compassion for
individual negroes who he says have
been ill treated In the penitentiary
and frequently gives as a reason for
liberating black convicts that they are
"white men's negroes."
Central High Stars
Trimmed York Five
Central high tossers proved the best
attraction of the season at York last
night, defeating York high, score 41
to 24. Both teams played a brilliant
Central excelled in tossing and floor
work and in the second half had a
brilliant spurt giving them a lead that
York could not overcome.
Tech's Easy Victory
From Millersburg
Tech tossers had little trouble in de
feating the Millersville Normal school
five last night, score 42 to 28. The
Tech scrubs won from the Methodist

Unique Meetings Will Be Held at
the Capitol During the
Coming Week
The State Board of Agriculture,
which has been holding meetings
every year since 1876, will, during
the coming week, hear for the first
time a series of addresses by officials
of the State government on what their
departments mean to the agricultural
interests of the commonwealth. This
arrangement, which is pronounced de
parture from the former program
which dealt with agricultural matters
brought up only by members of the
board, was made for the purpose of
stimulating interest in what the State
has undertaken for rural districts.
The question of highways, purifica
tion of water supply, equalization of
educational advantages, taxation, safe
ty laws, fire prevention and even li
brary work will be presented with
their relation to farmers and farming
life. Governor Tener will call the
meeting to order on Wednesday morn
ing and there will be seven sessions,
dosing on Friday when reports on
proposed legislation will be submitted.
In addition to the addresses there
will be reports by specialists of the
Board of Agriculture and its various
branches throughout the State and
the methods of .the new bureau of sta
tistics of the department of agricul
ture will be explained. This bureau
is engaged in making a census of the
farms of the State and making a com
pilation of reports on the crops.
It is probable that some attention
will be given to the county law pro
viding payment for scalps of noxious
animals and birds and the legislature
be asked to make an appropriation to
nay counties which have made pay
ments to hunters, but which cannot
be reimbursed because the Legislature
did not make a sufficient appropria
