EEPEIEVE3, COMMUTATIONS AND
Extract from QuV Thayer1 Measage.
The Constitution and laws of the State
require the Governor to report to the
Legislatire afluernbly, each case of re
prieve, commutation and pardon granted
by him, and the reasons for granting the
same. Also the names of all persons in
whose favor the remissions of fines and
forfeiture shall have been made, and the
several amounts remitted. In obedience
to that requirement, ' I sulilnit at this
time, my report upon that subject. The
nuaiber of commutations, as you will ob
serve front the reporj, is large, probably
much larger than has ever been granted
in this State during the same length of
tme. There are two reasons for this,
th e one is, that there has been a greater
number of convicts in the penitentiary
during the time referred to than at any
prior period of like duration. The other
is, that in! nearly all cass where convicts
have been discharged before the expira
tion of their term of sentence, a commu
tation has been granted, while formerly
a practice prevailed of remitting a por
tion of the sentence, or, as it was termed,
allowing extra time in favor of a party
on account of some extra service, and
discharging him without granting any
commutation or pardon, but the same as
if he had served the full term subject to
the remission for merits as provided by
statute, this resulted in allowing more
emlit for merits than the statute author
: i.!'l. 1 'nave no desire to criticise the
' ructice referred to, of allowing extra
time to convicts for some extra labor or
meritorious services, beyond tint which
they li ay entitle themselves to under the
rule, laid down in the statute. I have
adopted the practice myself, jut have not
authorized the discharge of the convict
in such cases, without a formal commuta
tion or pardon, if J believed him entitled
to a pardon.. You will notice in a great
majority of 'the cases of commutation,
the convicts have served nearly all the
time specified in their sentence. The
object of granting the commutation in
such cases, haa been to render the dis-

NO PATENT, NO PAY.
The fiMiiK-rii of tlie Constitution very
wisely and properly vested in the Gover
nor th". pardoning power. No other
braiu'h t' flie ( "loveriiment could have
ex.-rt:is(t it :is well.. Hie Judiciary
could not, as it no.ccsKai'ilv' would be con-
trolled iu its action by. general rules,
both iu tin- ai'iuisvion of testimony and
iu it decisions, :x;ul a Legislative assem
bly would evidently be a very ui.lit body
to exercise such a prerogative. All Gov
ernmental institutions are but human
inventions, and at their best are very
imperfect, however much they may ben
efit mankind. Depriving a human being
of life or liberty as a penalty for the
transgression of law, is an assumption on
the part of a common'realth, of high au
thority, and it can only be justified upon
the ground that the safety of tlie public
demands it. The execution of the offend
er, or his continued detentiou secures
an immunity from-his furtlier depreda
tions, his reformation would have tite
same effect, though that is not likely to
be effected except through the influence
of punishment. Bat the roast important
aim, in the infliction of puiikhment, k
to afford a f-alutarv example to those
I who are not restrained by moral senti
ments or through moral influences. To
detrmine, then, wliat is condii.ni punish
ment in a particular case, the security of
the public from the acts of the articular
offender and the beneficial influence it
will have upon those who are prone to
evil, must be considered. Tlie Legila
ture in prescribing the vindicatory jart
of a penal act, lias in view a general class '
of offenders only, and a wide latitude is
usually given to the courts in adminis
tering it, though som of our penal stat
utes are very much:' restricted, among
which may be included the provision of
the criminal code which makes it a felon v
to steal an article in a building, without
regard to the value of the article or the
kind or condition of the building. An-
OFFICE 'At Drug Store, C..V.V, j other is tlie provision which makes it a
vine species, hog or sheep, punishable by
imprisonment in the penitentiary without
any alternative, and without' regard to
the value of the animal.
The judge who pronounces the sen
tence of the law upon offenders, has a
better opportunity to know what amount
of punishment should be inflicted, as he
has heard the testimony in their case,
and been able to observe the surround
ings. But the evidence adduced is ad
mitted under rules that are general, and
often arbitrary, besides he may be 'im
pulsive and in some cases been uncon-
'seiously prejudiced, and he certainly does.
not know the effect the punishment he
imposes will have upon the culprit, or
its influence upon the public. Nor can
he know the many little circumstances
surrounding the transaction which have
influenced a perpetration of the offence,
and over which the offender had no con
trol. Whenever it can be ascertained that
punishment has fulfilled the purpose for
which it was intended, or has accom
plished all it is capable of accomplishing
in a particular case, its continuance, be
comes vindictive. By a close inspection
of the conduct of convicts, and an inquiry
into their history, many facts may be
elicited which, iu some cases, tend to ex
tenunate their transgressions. Many
of them, however, naturally belong iu a
prison, are vicious and unfit to be at
large, while many others owe their con
dition more to misfortune than to de
pravity. It has been my policy thus far,
to hold them to a rigid discipline w hilt;
in prison, and to release them as .soon as
cousistant with public safety and justice. !
I havfs doubtless made mistake in the
exercise of the. pardoning power, but in
every case I have exercised it consci
entiously and with a view to benefit the
prisoner and the State. And in nearly
all of the cases, so far as I have been
able to learn, those who have lieen, re
leased, have since conducted 'themselves
prpperly. The duty which the authority
imposes is not a pleasant one. It would
be much more agreeable to a Governor
to shirk its responsibility entirely by re
fusing to interfere in any case, but it
would be very unjust to adopt any such
The law requires also that when the
Governor grants a reprieve, commutation
or pardon, or remits a fine or forfeiture,
he must within ten days thereafter, file
all the papers presented to him in rela-
tiori thereto, in the office of the Secretary,
of State, by whom they must be kept, as
public records, open to public inspection.
You will find the papers relating to the
cases reported on file in accordance with
the law and subject to your examination.
THE lT. S. LAND LAWS.
What the Settler Is Beqalred tedsta Araalre
THE HOMESTEAD ACT.
The applicant must be a citizen of the
United States, or have taken out his
first papers declaring his intention to be
come a citizen He. must be 21 years
old, or the head of a family. He may
enter insideor outside of railroad limits
160 acres, or any subdivision thereof.
On filing the claim the Land Office fee
is $22 on the 160, if the land is within
railroad limits, or, $16 if it is outside.
The applicant is required to establish his
residence on the land within six months
from day of filing. He can settle on the
land three months, if it be "unoffered"
land and thirty days if it be "offered'
land, before filing his claim, and have
his five year's residence counted from the
day of settlement. If he has settled on
unsurveyed land he must make his filing
within 3 months from the filing of the
township plot in the land office. The
law says this residence must be a con
tinued one for five years, but this does
not prevent temporary absence for labor,
even of several months, or for visits.

In the House the question of building
an Asylum for the insane has in a man
ner been tested. So far there seems to
be no disposition on thejpart of that body
to saddle the State with the unnecessary
expense of erecting a costly, structure, at
a time when it Las more public buildings
under headway than it finds itself capable
of completing. It is sometime yet until
the expiration of the present contract
and it would be but wisdom to allow
things to remain as at present, and com
plete the buildings already begun before
commencing others. In the mean time
we know that the insane will be properly
cared for, as they have been in the past,
under the skilful care of Dr. Hawthorne.
