Not illustrated. 1872 edition. Excerpt: ...a general, statement that a great number had been pardoned. I think it was published by the last legislature, was it not? Question. That legislature appointed a committee to investigate the matter, and they made a report which entirely exonerated the governor. Answer. I got the impression in that way, that there were a great many pardons. Question. The general rumor among the white democrats is that there have been pardons improperly granted? Answer. Yes, sir. Question. That is the general rumor in your region? Answer. Yes, sir. Question. When the governor was impeached, was one of the counts of the impeachment with which they charged him the improper granting of pardons? Answer. I do not think so. Question. Was there any count that charged him with corruption in railroad matters? Answer. No, sir. Question. None at all? Answer. No, sir. By Mr. Blair: Question. Was there not subsequently a charge of that kind voted by the house of representatives? Answer. Yes, sir; it was not introduced in the senate. Question. It was voted by the house of representatives? Ansiver. Yes, sir; but the reason why they did not introduce it was that they thought it would make the case too long. As the bill they had against him contained only one or two counts, they concluded that they ought to make some show really of a strong case; not to have it appear that it was a political thing, becanse it was not political. Question. And then the charge that he was corrupt was voted in the house of representatives?' Answer. Yes, sir; I think that is so as to the house, but it was not sent to the senate. Question. It was not accepted by the senate? I understand the senate had to accept the charge. Answer. I do not think it was sent; my understanding is that it was never sent more
