I would not be in all this trouble."
Soon after this "confession,"
Mitsunaga was rushed to trial,
and on the circumstantial evi
dence in the case, and utterly dis
regarding Mitsunaga's tale of a
"white man," the jury "found him
guilty, and he was sentenced to
life imprisonment in Carson City
But Mitsunaga's countrymen
in Denver did not believe; him
guilty. They wrote to Tarre Yo
gata, famous as a detective in
'every corner of Japan.
The case interested Yogata.
He appealed to the emperor for
a special dispensation to come to
this country, and investigate it.
The emperor granted'the request.
THE CORRECT THING
Yogata arrived here first
about six months ago. Until
yesterday he was a regular Sher
lock Holmes. He hardly ever ap
peared twice in the same disguise,
and he tookmysterious trips to
all parts of the surrounding coun
try. Yesterday, -Yogata announced
"I have the evidence," he said,
"I can prove that Mitsunaga did
not murder Mrs. Wilson. I think
I can prove who did do it, I am
going to ask the supreme court to
order a new trial for my country
man." The application for the new
trial was made to the state su
preme court yesterday afternoon.
It has not been acted on, yet.
