II. Governor Young Thursday submitted to the California state legislature hia message reporting on acta of executive clemency during the lat two year.

These Included a reprieve granted to a prisoner who died during tiie period of reprieve, throe commutations of sentence from death to life impri.vorment. three pardons to restore citizenship, one pardon where innocence was conclusively proved and one pardon to a woman about to he imprisoned. By far the outstanding act of clemency during the governor's term was the pardon of Charlotta Anita Whitnev June 20, 1927. Mis Whitney was convicted in Alameda county of violating the war-tin. e criminal syndicalism act, and sentenced to serve 1 to 14 year at San Quentin. The other acts of clemency lusted were: George Watters, Sacramento negro, sentenced to be hanged at San Quentin for murdering his wife. Commuted February 28 to life imprisonment without parole.

Sale of wine tonic and bitter with an alcoholic content of from 20 to 40 percent is legal if manufactured or imported under governmental sanction, Municipal Judge Charles D. Ballard has ruled. The opinion was banded down in the case of C. D. Hemmingir, druggist, accused of violating the Gandier ordinance by selling a quantity of imported bitters to a policeman. The ordinance wag adopted prior to passage of the Volstead act and never was repealed. for pardon, was described by the governor as having been bequeathed me by my predecessor. Certainly, I have no de.sire to avoid responsibility in this or any other case, Governor Young aid, "and I shall proceed to a thorough study of the voluminous record a3 soon as I am relieved of -the duties incident to the present ' legislative session. In closing the governor set frth iix principle! underlying cxecut've clemency that have guided him in his actions, as follow.: 1. In consideration of any case, it is necessary to keep in mind rot only the individual, but also society as a whole. 2. In the absence of new fact not brought to life at the trial, I rhould be extremely loath to overturn the verdicts of our ju is and I the judgment of our courts. 3. When doubt exists in a governor's mind after a study of the tritl transcript, court decisions nd all papers and documents relating to the crime and its perpetrator, the benefit of that doubt should ho given to the condemned man to j the extent of saving him from the gallows. 4. It is absolutely necessary that no undue influence of any kind in behalf of a prisoner 'to allowed to creep into any case. 5. Under the liberal parole laws of California, the first clemency to be shown a p soner should normally be through action i f the parole board. fi. During the period of parols the former prisoner is bound t conduct himself properly, for 'o do so is a condition of the necessarily rather rigid parole regulations. Rar Land Owners From Courtroom (Continued from Page 1, Sec. 1) in the black garb of an Episcopalian clergyman, and he walked simply and trustingly to the witness stand with the short, quick Mop so often noticeable with men of a reflective temperament. As he stood before the brusque, strong voiced attorney for cross-examination to the testimony he had given to Charles Blackstock, he smiled confidingly at the men around him. Pastor Holds His Own Like a lamb to the slaughter, thought The Star reporter as the little man identified himself as Rev. Robert Gooden, an Episcopal clergyman and head master at the Harvard academy. He softened his rs and spoke in a gentle tone, as to a friend across the luncheon table. For ahout two minutes the reporter held to his delusion as Rev. Gooden not only answered the question put to him hut elaborated smi'Jagly with reminiscences of the cow that couldn't get out of the pasture and the times he had hail to carry firewood from the eucalyptus trees into the Foster home when he lived there from 1895 to 1898. But it soon became apparent that the ministers testimony, bland in form, was impregnate to Malloys thrusts. The Rev. Mr. Gooden couldnt say exactly how far Mr. Fosters property had extended in those days, he had just assumed that it went on out into ihe river. No, he didnt remember how far back the fence went except that when he drove out there yesterday it seemed "fearfully short. But of course, I am remembering back over 30 years, you know. Yes, I know, said Malloy, drily. In ahout 10 minutes the minister was dismissed from further cross-examination. Witnesses who took the stand this morning were E. P. Foster, Earl Percy, Steve Percy, and Muk-tar Willett, besides Charles Petit and R. G. Percy, who wore returned for brief cross-examination. Ry a deed which Mr. Foster exhibited from Ramon Lorcnzana to his present property, it became apparent that it will be necessary for the plaintiffs to argue adverse possession to win their case. As Mr. Foster Pointed it out on the map the ground covered by the deed did not come to the grant line PLANE MYSTERY PARTLY SOLVED The mystery aurrounding the forced landing of an airplane near Somis, supposed to have been used for smuggling in Chinese from Mexico, was partially solved yesterday with the arrest of Bud Merrill, who the customs official claim was the pilot of the machin. No details of the arrest or if the investigation have been given the local sheriff's office. Deputy Sheriff Bill Suytar went to Romis yesterday for the customs official to investigate a mysterious phone call placed from that town shortly after the plane is supposed to have crashed. under dispute. . Malloy immediately placed the map in evidence, to the apparent concern of the plaintiff attorneys. Answering a question which has been asked by a number of persons interested in the case, Malloy told The Star this noon that he ia successor to the Carpentier-Stem-bach interests by a purchase of 20 years ago.
