The first witness on the stand wns
ono of the four Japanese who first
mounted tho platform, Just previous to
tho shooting. He stated thut four nr
five of the laborers were told to mount
the platform and treat with the whit.'
men In regard to rlc-o and wate. Tneio
was some talk on the part of th" wlnl
men about defending themselves and

Tho Chinese pushed their attacks
fiendishly. Placards were posted
throughout the city declaring that tlit

Chinese, who feared to meet the for

piovented their success. The body of
