AN INDIAN EXECUTION.
Sang Until the Bullets Silenced
CADDO, Indian Ter. March 10.
Elias Loring, a full-blood Choctaw
Indian, was to-day executed ac
cording to the Indian custom at
Apuckshunnuble, a village thirty
miles south of here.
On January 30 Loring murdered
ah old woman named Cave tte, aged
85" years. She was reputed to have
money, and Loring killed her
while trying to steal her hidden
wealth. Loring was arrested and
tried in the Circuit Conrt, and was
sentenced on February 20 io be
shot on March 10. . In compliance
with the decree of the court Loring
was guarded by a detachment of
the Choctaw Light Horse Company
until this morning, when he was
taken to the place of execution.
Just as the first streak of dawn
appeared Loring was awakened
from his sleep and taken to the in
closure which surrounds the coun
cil chamber. This inclosure is in
the form of a stockade, about fif
teen feet high, and is a strong
prison of itself.
The entrance is through a mas
sive gate, which is strong enough
to resist the attack of a regiment.
Aoout fifteen feet from the eastern
side of the inclosure is a square
rock half sunk into the ground.
This is the famous ?nd historic
death rock. This stone is flat top
ped and is sunk into the ground
until its top is two feet above the
surface. Hero all the executions
of the tribe have taken place in
the last thirty years.
The Choctaws are greatly en
lightened, but the form of execu
tion is one of the relics of barbar
ism that has been retained, and,
while the court proceedings are ac
cording to the latest forms of juris
prudence, the executions must
take place according to the- long
established f<"~:.;" ^ 1 --~-r?Hf??
of the tribe. Th.

Within -the inciosure were the
relatives of the murdered woman
and also those of her slayer. The
tribal council and the Light Horse
Guurd, with but a few visitors,
completed the number that were
allowed within the inclosure.
The death rock is so situated
that the sun don't strike it until
about ll o'clock in the morning,
and according to the law of the
tribe the execution cannot take
place "until the sun has kissed
It was while waiting for this
time to arrive that a scene that
could not be duplicated in no other
portion of the globe took place. It
was fate that Loring should die,
and the savage was so strong in
him that he was ready to die and
make no sign that he felt the pen
alty. There was no fear in him,
for he knew that his time had come
and he would go.
Just as the day broke this morn
ing the sound of a drum aroused
the inhabitants of the village and
called together the members of the
Light Horse Company. It was the
death signal. With the dying
away of the sound, men, women,
and children came from the huts
and houses, and the village was
alive with the preparation for a
holiday. Breakfast was hurriedly
eaten, and then everybody went
toward the inclosure.
Neither the dead woman nor the
man who was to suffer the penalty
had relatives in the yiilage and
from the surrounding country
came those who were to be the
principal actors in the tragedy.
As the sun rose there came from
the woods, along the creek that
runs north of the village, those
who had camped there over night,
ready to be on hand at the earliest
possible opportunity in the morn
Loring had been kept under
guard in the council chamber, and
at the beating of the drum was
given his last breakfast. He ate
heartily and marched between two
files of the Light Guard into tho
inclosure. Here had already as
sembled those who were to witness
the closing scene. The condemned
man was loosened from the bonds
that had been placed about his
anns, and was permitted to mingle
freely among his friends and rela
To all appearances he was as
free as any one in that inclosure.
He. passed from group to group,
and chatted and laughed as if he
had no thought of .-death. He
talked as if he were going on a
long journey, and laughingly bade
his fronds farewell. The whole
scene was that of a pleasure party
and to one who did not know ot
the meaning of the gathering it
would haye appeared as a holi
All morning the merriment con
tinued, while the sun slowly crept
toward the death rock. This. was
the only place in the inclosure that
was shunned by the crowd. Finally
the fatal hour drew near, and then
a silence came over the assembled
people. The relatives of the
murdered, woman drew' away to
themselves and selected those who
were to fire the shots that would
end the blood feud between the
This was soon decided, and then
the doomed man walked to the
death rock. As he proceeded he
began singing in a low tone a
peculiar monotonous song. Londer
and louder it came until the sound
could be heard far beyond the
inclosure. Those on the outside
knew that the hour of death was
near, for they heard the death
song of tho Choctaws as it had
been sang in all the ages of the
fri be since its beginning. Calmly
seating himself on ihe stained
rock, Loring continued his song as
two members of the .Light Horse
company bound his arms and feet
and bandaged his eyes. Not a
sound indicated that ho feared
As the six men stepped forward
from the ra?ks of the relatives of
the dead woman and advanced to
the place where they would fire
the fatal shots the " song of the
doomed man swelled forth in
increased volume. The rythm of
the chant was in unison with the

forward and lay quivering on the
ground at the edge of death rock.
The work was well doue, and with
the death of the murderer was
wipped out all the stain, and the
body was troated-with the conside
ration due a dead member of the
tribe. The whole tribe joined
in paying a tribute of respect to
the dead man, and he was buried
with the honors that would have
been accorded him had he died in

had wiped out all blood feud be

Its Production to be Undertaken
in This Country. .
WASHINGTON, March 15.-The
Egyption cotton seed purchased
by Secretary Rusk through the
United States counsul general at
Cairo, Egpt, has been received at
the Department of Agriculture.
The purpose of this importation
seed is, as set forth in Rusk's
last report as Secretary of
Agriculture, to undertake, with
the co-operation of experiment
stations in the Cotton States,
experiments with a view to produc
ing cotton of home growth which
may serve as au efficient sub
stitute for the Egyptian, of which
during the last fiscal year, more
than three million dollare worth
was imported into this country, an
increase of 15 per cent over the
previous year ending 1890.
The cotton seed received at the
department consists of two of the
best known Egyption varieties,
"Afifi" and "Bamiab." Distribu
tion will be made to experiment
stations in the Cotton States and
alBo through Senators for those
States to planters whom they
may recommend as persons well
qualified and willing to give the
Egyptian seed a careful trial.
A report on conditions of soil
and climate and the methods of
cultivation of Egyptian cotton is
being prepared for the department
under the direction of our cousul
general in Egpt.

Rejoinders and Resentment?.
From tho Charleston Sun.
The Greenville News says;
"Governor Tillman continues to
play the swaggering bully just as
he has seen fit to do ever since he
first appeared in public life. His
record is full of instances of at
tempted insults to men who were
not in position to resent him, but
so far as we can recall he has
never faced any man who hascall
ed him to account for any of the
foul?charges of which he has been
so prolific. When men like A. P.
Butler, William Munro, J. Hr Earle,
J. J. Dargan and others have 'call
ed him" down' he has always had
explanations and di sci amer s ready.

debarred from reining*"* nrr?em*
l\V.' . .tv
i . " . ?._ Uukfc ??uutn
Carolina has a Governor who re
spects nothing and nobody-cer
tainly not himself."
This is all very well. But Judges
are not debarred of rejoinders or
resentments, only they have a dif
ferent way of voicing the one and
showing the other. Truth compels
us to say that, to all appearances,
Judge Simonton especially has not
been thus precluded. And his
"rejoinders and resentments" have
not been the less galling that they
have been driven in under the
dignified forms and the technical
language of the courts and pro
tected by "the divinity that doth
hedge about" the wearer vt the
Federal ermine, but which seems
to have departed from the once
sacred official personage of the
chief magistrate of this proud old
bully" is the style of epithet ap
plied freely, and without a thought
of compunction by the usually
courteous editor of. the Greenville
News who was brought up in a
school of ethics wherein the first
lesson imbibed was unquestioning
respect for the man, whatever his
personal foibles might be, who was
for the time being the embodiment
of the State's dignity and sov
ereignty. And, when, pray has
not Ben Tillman been the object of
such vituperation, if we may ques
tion the justice of it? He was
nurtured in a rougher school, per
haps, and it is his nature to blurt
out what he thinks, untrained as
he has been to prune his language
and to control his temper. How
unreasonable to expect such a man
when smitten to turn tho other
cheek to the smiter.
. But a circuit judge of a Federal
court, forsooth, is sacred. Since
when, pray, has he taken ' prece
dence in this respect of the Gov?
ernor of South Carolina? The
name of Bond is most prominently
identified in our public mind with
that now sanctified tribunal. The
suggestion is odorous. Nobody in
South Carolina called Judge Bond
sweet-scented names !
Tillman may b* a rattlesnake,
but he did not spring his obnox
ious rattlers on the United Statef
Judges until they stirred him up,
The talk about "rejoinders and re
sentments" is misleading ab initio,
If war arose between the State and
the Federal courts, he did not seek
it. The Circuit court in this city,
unhappily represented in the per
son pf a jufge, native and uto the
manner- bom,^ met him on the
very thr?shjffld of his administra
tion and :h& repeatedly, invaria
bly, and^ jfrsistently confronted
himNat nearly every important step
attempted J; ir be taken by him. If
the court hi d maintained the jus
tice of itv J av?rai'positions there
would hayer beten some excuse for
this vexatic as, expensive, and un
profitable^interference. But he
has time apd'again demonstrated
the substantial justice of his
claims f?r^he State, but not be
fore being subjected to these ex
asperating proceedings which rob
bed the Stfife of the proposed bene
fit to be derived from the measures
undertaken; by him and left her
empty-handed of any results but
the estabiflfiment of their justice.
The justifi?- of Tillman's claim
that the Ccoeaw phosphate terri
tory reverfjfd' to the State at the
expiratiori^pf the term of the
original .lease was never really a
subject ofjdoubt and it was so ad

SAN ANTONIO, March 12-In the
early part of the present century,
when San Antonio was the home
of many wealthy Spaniards and the
comrr :al centre of all of north
ern Mw ..co, a mule train started
for this city from the City of
Mexico. There were thirty mules,
each loaded with 8,000 silver dol
lars and a considerable amount of
gold coin, the total amount being
The caravan was in charge of Capt.
Palacio Flores, a prominent and
trusted empleyee of the Govern
ment. In addition to the drivers of
he mule train there were about fifty
well armed and equipped guards.
The old and v i-worn national
highway through San Luis Potosi
and Monterey was taken and the
dangerous mountain defiles south
of Saltillo were passed without
any attack on the train .being
made. The Rio Grande River was
crossed a few miles above Laredc
and the train made its way rapidly
toward San Antonio.
In those days the national
highway passed through what ?E
now Dimmit county, Texas, follow
ing the bank of Pena Cr ' foi
several miles. On the ^ank o?
that stream was a favorite camping
place, which is now called Brand
Rock Water Hole. This hole is
located at a sharp bend in the
stream and is of unfathomable
depth, although it evidently hae
a natural bottom as the water in
it does not pass into any interioi
When this camping place wat
reached Capt. Flores decided to
remain there a few days resting
the mules, preparatory to making
the 100 miles still remaining be
ween there and San Antonio. He
considered that all the dangerous
portion of the country had been
passed through, and only left ten
men on guard the first night.
Even this number seemed unnec
essary, as there no signs of any
attack, and no pickets were posted
It was about noon on that day
when a band of brigands suddenly
rushed upon the unprotected
camp out of a dense live-oak
thicket,. Capt. Flores and his men
were talking their noonday siesta
when the attack was made, but
they did not submit without a
desporate struggle. The bags of
gold and silver were piled in a
heap near the deep water hole,
and when Capt. Floras found
that the brigands were about to
get possession of the wealth he
ordered the drivers to throw it all
into the placid pool. The command
was obeyed and the brigands
massacred every member of Jhe
mule train party with the excep
tion of a driver named Alejondre
Lajero, who succeed in mak : ig
his escape, proceeding to San
Antonio where he gave an account
of the terrible adventure, a record
of which was made at that time,
and is still in existence here. His
story was discredited until the
parties to whom it had been con
signed made an investigation and
found the bones of the victims
evidence that the bandits had
tried to recover the wealth from
Attempts were then made to
explore the hole but without
success. Heavy weights have
been sunk to a depth of several
thousand feet and no bot
tom reached. A few months
ago James L. Morgan, an Eastern
capitalist and the owner of an ex
tensive ranch in southwest tTexas,
was passing through Dimmit
county, when he was told the story
possible. He is now in the East
superintending the construction of
devices and machinery tobe used
