Excerpt from The Encyclopedia of United States Supreme Court Reports, Vol. 9: Being a Complete Encyclopedia of All the Case Law of the Federal Supreme Court Up to and Including Volume 206, U. S. Supreme Court Reports (Book 51, Lawyers' Edition)

Where the constitution of Illinois ex pressly conferred upon the governor the power to grant reprieves, commutations and pardons, after conviction, for all Oi fenses, Art. 5, 13, it was held that the governor had authority to commute the punishment of death to imprisonment for life in the penitentiary. Schwab Berg gren, 143 U. S. 442, 451, 36 L. Ed. 218.

It has Often been decided in the states that the governor may grant conditional pardons by commuting the punishment where the governor acted generally, if not uniformly, under special provisions in the constitution or laws of the state, or on the principles of the common law adopted by the state. Ex parte William Wells, 18 How. 307, 318, 15 L. Ed. 421, dissenting Opinion.
