Children Of Sla
Oppose Pard
A petition signed by the
children of the late Sheriff
Jack Stanland has been sent
to Governor Ehringhaus pro
testing the effort that is being
made to secure a full
pardon for Jesse C. Walker,
who shot and killed their
father when he attempted to
arrest Walker on some minor
charge in Brunswick county
25 years ago.
R. W. Davis, Southport attorney,
who was associated
with the prosecution of the
case, received a letter last
week from H. A. Stanland,
who declared that "this petition
was given due consideration
by us and we feel that
clemency at this time should
not be granted to Walker."
Following is the petition
which the children of the
slain sheriff sent to Governor
"New Britain, Connecticut,
June 3rd, 1935.
