Governor Yates yesterday afternoon used his official prerogative In the case of Joseph Evans, the negro sentenced to be hanged at Belleville this morning for the murder of Edward Lawson, a one-armed white man In East St. Louis last June.

All arrangement for the haneincr had been made by Sheriff Thompson. The death watch had been placed on Evans early yesterday morning and the drop on the gallows had been given a final test. Sheriff Thompson fixed the time of the exe cution at & few minutes past 8 a. m. and the jury was already selected and noti fied. Evans had been attended by a preacher and. although he expressed some hope of a reprieve, he asserted that he was ready to die If necessary. Evans was the only man sentenced to hang In Belleville for the last dozen years. The crime for which be was sentenced was, according to the witnesses, a cold blooded murder. He first robbed Lawson, a one-armed white man. from Mount Ver non, and then shot him through the heart. Policeman Mulqueeney arrested the negro and saved him from bcinc lynched. Attorney Charles Karch of Belleville was appointed to defend Evans. He made strong efforts to secure a new trial, but was refused, and then he appealed to Governor" Yates for a commutation of the death sentence.
