BLEtSE TELLS IK HE PARDONED 992 Gives Series of Reasons in Booklet Sent to Members of the Legislature 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 State." 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 game. 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 Club, score 25 to 15. GIRLS' SECOND TEAM WILL PLAY ELIZABETHTOWN The second girls' basketball team of the Central High school which has recently been formed, will play Ellz abethtown February, where they will meet the girls' high school team of that town.

AGRICULTURE HID THE GOVERNMENT 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 tion.
