GOVERNOR PARDONED A PRISONER.
This past Friday, Governor Pinkham forgave the punishment of a prisoner, and released for good five convicts from their imprisonment at Kawa.
The one who was pardoned was George Kealoha. He was found guilty on the 10th of this past month, November, for injuring a soldier, and the sentence he received from Judge Ashford was one year in prison.
From what was said, the reason for that the Governor ended the sentence of George Kealoha was because of a plea put before him, and in this document, it said that the wife of George Kealoha was very close to giving birth, and therefore, the Governor listened and signed his name to a document to end the sentence of that Hawaiian man.
Because of the many prisoners, they were released by the Governor; they were people who were imprisoned for some years but yet did not serve out their sentence.
