Atlanta, June 25—Gov. Candler Issued
three pardcns to-day, two of the prisoners

mon county being charged with assault
with intent to murder.
The two arson prisoners were Ltge
Young, sent up for life from Polk county,
and Warren Witcher sent up in 1891, for
twenty years, from Glascock. The case of
the Polk county negro is unique. In ISBI
he was confined In the Polk jail awaiting
trial for larceny. At the instigation of a
white prisoner he burned a hole in the
jail in order to escape. The gTand jury
indicted him for arson and toe was giv?n
a life sentence.
A few weeks ago the negro on his own
motion wrote a letter to Judge Turner,
chairman of the prison board, reciting
these facts. The judge said if they were
true he should be released for the Su
preme Court had ruled prior to this
man's conviction that an attempt to burn
out of jail was not arson but simply an
attempt to escape. The investigation was
made, and the Polk county authorities
substantiated the negro's story and the
board recommended a pardon, which the
Governor granted this afternoon, there
being no petition, no lawyers, nothing ex
cept the letter of the prisoner and a state
ment from the Polk county officers veri
fying what he said.
Walden, the Populist member of the
Legislature from Glascock, was the pros
ecutor in the other arson case, and asked
the Governor to notify him when the
case would be heard. The Governor no
tified Col. Walden several days ago that
the papers were before him, and be would
be glad to hear from him. incidentally
telling him that 500 white citizens of his
county had petitioned for the negro's re
lease Walden refused to appear before
the Governor, saying that If his neigh
bors wanted to turn loose a red-handed
arson fiend on the country, he would have
nothing more to say. The pardon was
