The following is copied from a microfilmed copy of a 1904 issue of a Scott County newspaper and is presented here because of the many names of local residents listed as signing it. I feel many of the names were misprinted in the newspaper but they are copied as written. Some of the obvious errors are Back=Black; Castlebey=Castleberry. The letter "J" was often misread as an "I." If you are looking for a specific name, you may want to use the "Edit" and "Find" functions on your browser.

Waldron Reporter
10 May 1904
Petition For Pardon

To Hon. Jeff Davis,
Governor of the State of Arkansas.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Scott County, Ark., represent to your Honor that Jasper Haney was at the Feb., 1902, term of the Scott Circuit Court, convicted of the crime of murder in the 2nd degree, and was sentenced to a term of ten years in the State Penitentiary. That he has now served more than two years of said term. That there are reasons to believe that said killing was in necessary self-defense and that if he be pardoned justice will be fully meted out; wherefore we pray that he be granted a full and complete pardon:
