Theo tlio Pris- j oner Was Choked to Death. More Likely to bo Sentenced to the Same Fate. The President Asked to Interfere. The president will lie asked to pre? vent the execution of 10 men iu tbo Chootuw Nation in thu Indian Territory. This is a eall npOU thu president to take a part ngniust the local govern- i incut in that Indian nation to prevent ozooution its n rosult of a political war j that has ruged in that country for ten years, but which in tho lust two years ban resulted in bloodshed Tin- test oase como up before tho pn 8 idout laut year, and the Choctaw an tboritios succeeded at last in forcing : the execution, which proved tho most brutal of years oven for that country. ' It. appeared that Lt \vi.-. had been one of the loaders in what is known in Choctaw polities us tbo .Taokaou faction. .Le ksou hud boon a candidate for gov? ernor of tho nation, and opposed to bim was Colonol .tones. Thero was the usual manipulation of the ballot boxes, and both sides claimed tho victory. This was followed by both men trying to get. tbo place of govornor, and hut skirmishes resulted in sovoral being killed. lu duo Lime thotJai kson faction gave up the light, and .loin s was installed, tjuiekly followed the efforts to prosc CtttO thu leaders of the Jaoksou faction. Tho ease of Lewis was S' l up as a tost. It booh appeared to tlm defense that they would not bo given a fair trial. The trial proceeded for ti day, and tho defense restod their ease when tho prosecution bad presented their side, ami the packed jury t< turned u verdict of guilty, and thu boUtoUco of death was passed. Tho full history of tho case und all tbe troubles leading up to it was pre? sented to tho president and the appeal niude for protection. Tho president asked tbo governor of tho Choctaw No? tion to defer ezeoutton for a time, and as a result tho execution was postponed for u month. Later there wns another delay order? ed by tho govornor, but in duo time it appeared to tho Choctaw authorities that they would not l*> injnrcd by tho United States authorities if they pro? ceeded with tho execution, and accord? ingly on the fitli of November they car? ried out tin- sentence of death in the most brutal manner. According tu tho Choctaw law, capi? tal punishment is inflicted by shooting, lt happens also sometimes Chat the sen? tence is executed by tho enemy of tho accused. In this easu it was decided that Low < is should bo shot by one of tho leaders [of tho Jones faction who was a bitter ! personal ouoiny of Lowis und who is known as Liruon Pusley. Pusley was made a deputy sheriff for tho occasion, and tbon it was concluded that it would bo well to take as much rOVCngO out of the execution us possible, so instetftl cf shooting tho doomed muH iu tho left breast, according to the law of that country, it wns docidod to bo appropri . ate to make i, mistake and shoot him in 1 the ri^hl broast so that death would j not come instantly. Accordingly tho shot was tired in tho light breast, and Lewis failed to fall to I tho ground. At this moment ho was taken in hand by the COterio from tho governor's offioe and thrown to thft ground and strangled to dentil. It took y.ist Iii minutes to do tho work. Lowis was conscious most, of tho , time, and while ho did nil ho could to : inflict physical injury upon his assail? ants ho uttered not n word of appeal for mer oy. It was timing this brutal struggle that u photograph wits taken of tho . scene, and this is preserved as evidence , of the treatment aocorded Lew is and is boforo the president, showing a feature of tin- lamentable conditions iu that conntry. As shown by tho photograph, Pusley, tho temporary deputy sheriff, who pur 1 poscly made the bad shot, stands with tho Kim in bis hand, while Samuel : Huston holds the mouth and nose of the prisoner, and John Piekons is holding j his band over tho gunshot wound for tho purposo of forcing the blood to es? cape on tho inside by way of insuring death somu tima in tho future, nnd A. Whito is holding Lowis' feet, aud in this way, af tor overa half hoar of Btrau giing, Lewis was aoaa. Last wintor there was another oloo titm for govomor, ami .1 <11111 Gardner wan elected. Tho Chootuw council passed a bill tu ileolaro au ninuosty to ull political prisoners or those undor In? dictment bclougiug to tho Jaoksoii fao lion, hut tho uow governor promptly votood tbo bf 11. Ho insist.-, thut all tho onsos shall bo disposed of in tho courts, and tbo exeoutious shall hi enrriod out iu tho mostapproTcd stylo, which was fol? lowed oiosoly in tho Lewis ciiko. It is n foregone oouolusion that ull will bo Beutohood to dentb, and bonco it appears to those interested ou tho Jnoksou sido of tho controversy that it is time thnt tbey commouco to preparo tho president for taking stops to pr< vent t\ ooutiuuation of this sort, of bru tnlity in that country. It must ho understood thai tho Choc taw [iidians insist thai, tho United States government lias no rignt whui over to intorfore in Choctaw matter This, they olaim, is their right under old treaty stipulations. Lut. It has been insisted tor sum years (hat tbo local government I gone beyond all reason in tho dirootio i ?if oruol and inhuman treatment of pi . ?hots ami allogod criminals, and it urged thai thu president .-hall tako, hand in tho coming coutost audprevont further exhibitions ot brutality under thu Kl,isu of carrying out law. ?
