McLean Was Lenient
With 811 Prisoners
Majority Stayed Straight. Gardner
Against Electric
Chair?
Raleigh.—Looking over the rec
ord of his four years, Governor Mc
Lean has discovered that he has
granted some form of clemency to
611 prisoners and that only 28 have
outraged him so that he revoked
their liberties.
Governor McLean ha* had more
than 29 prisoners to send back, but
not all of them were his. He re
voked several pardons and commu
tations which had been made by hie
predecessors. But he does think
that there is yet considerable hope
for the prisoner. A very small per
cent of the men and women helped
by him have shown themselves un
worthy.
The McLean administration has
broken the record for death penal
ties. There have been ?9 electrocut
ed under his rule of four years, an
average of about ten a year. Consid
ering the fact that the electric chair
started doing business 20 years ago
and has taken the life of less than
100, the McLean record stacks high.
But all the governors had electrocu
tions and it appears anomalous that
the more the penalty of death ie in
flicted the greater the number of
candidates for a place In diabolism’s
hall of fame. Craig and Blckett
were never persuaded away from
capital punishment, but it tore the
heart from them when they had a
day of death Governor Morrison
had trouble too, but he stood It bet
ter in an Bicaew ana wring, ru rerun
was regarded cool enough, but he
saved many and had few electrocut
ed. Hie was not a murderous qua
drennlum. There was not a lyn
ching during hie whole four years.
The good folks got mighty mad
at Craig and Blckett when they by
amazing grace saved wretchee oft
en and ofteoer. But folks seem to
kill more now than they did then,
and the state has had the kllllng
est fellows under the hard Mr. Mc
Lean than It has had at all.
It Is not generally known that
the next governor is mighty weak
on capital punishment Indeed, If
Gardner were going to found a
state and write its laws he would
not have a gallows or a chair. But
that* another story.
ORCHESTRA CARRIED FOR
BRIDAL PARTY IN FLIGHT
Reno.—George A. Henshaw, Jr.,
Texas and Los Angeles oil million

along with them when they arriv

be married. The band serenaded
the couple on their trip across the
Sierras, but it was not stated if the
music was heard above the roaring
motors.

Rosy days lie In watt for Steve
right now. for Herbert Hoover,
sixth presidential customer whom
he will know, has already signified
his interest in the goober, end
during his Washington life has
often stopped at Steve's stand for
his bag of fresh roasted peanuts.
But If you think Steve’s going
to upset the destiny of nations by
telling you whether the president*
•to-be likes his goobers hot or cold,
well, medium or rare roasted, you
hare another think coming.
He Keeps Quiet.
"Best not to talk too much tn
this business/’ says Steve, a spec
ulative eye upon tha big house be
yond the Iron picket fence. “Big
men don’t talk much. Steve don't

Steve’s peanut, popcorn and
candy stand has done Ita stuff
through the rate and ehlne of five
presidents. He remembers the
day "Big Taft he come to White
House. I Just new then. Sure,
he like peanuts. He like candy
too. That's why he so beega
man. Pretty soon he have only
one beefsteak for breakfast In
stead of two and then he pass by
stand when he go for walk and
only laugh at me when I shake
peanut bags at him.”
His favorite president? Again
Steve proves that his 20 years as
peanut purveyor to president* have
taught him much.
"All nice fellas—very nice fellar
