Leavonworth , Kan. , May 25. John
R. Walsh this morning received a tele

grant the application for his pardon.
Mnj. R. W. McClaughoy , warden of

"If Mr. Walsh was shocked or dis

had given out no Interviews and that
it was not probable he would do so.
"It Is against the rules for news

Asked concerning the aged banker/3 /

"He is as well as he has Ireon at any.

for the pardon of Charles W. Morse
of New York and John R. Walsh of

prison under the national banking
Not only did the president refuse
to pardon them but he also declined
to exercise any other executive clem
ency in these cases or to shorten the
sentences imposed by. the courts.
In denying the pardons the president
took a firm stand that the national
banking laws or any other laws must
be upheld when they affect the ricli
man ever more than when they affeql
the poor. The record In the Walsh
, case , the president said , "shows moral
turpitude of that insidious and dan
gorous kind , to punish which the na
tlonal banking laws were especially
In conderlng the case of Morse , the
president said that "from a consldera

no doubt that Mor o should have re

The president's denial of the pardoi
applications does not mean that tin
men must stay in prison until the em
