Mrs. Gaumer, the unhappy victim of
the lust of the negro Mitchell, who was
lynched at Urbana, Ohio, has come
out in a sloppy and gushy card to the
public, in which she invokes the bless
ings of heaven and the saints upon all
who have been sympathetic with her
and declares that those who fell be
fore the bullets of the militia, died in
a holy cause defending the purity of
their homes, their mothers and sisters.
She declares that they should be looked
upon as heroes who spilled their blood
for the noblest of causes.
It is very unfortunate that Mrs. Gaumer ■
was permitted by her friends to publish
this card. For her sufferings and dis
grace, of course, there is a world of sym
pathy. It would be less than human
not to condole with her, and offer her
sympathetic expression of sorrow for
her woe. She is a wretched woman,
whose life has been stained beyond
hope. Her family has been plunged into
the very depth of wretchedness and she
herself will probably never recover the
tone of her life.
But was it womanly, was it modest,
was It in the Christian spirit with which
she assumes to be blessed, that she
should rush into print to parade her
woes and glorify law breaking? Granted
that the outrage deserved death, that
it was so awful as to make severest
punishment mild, nevertheless it re
mains that the laws of Ohio of which
State Mrs. Gaumer Is a citizen, have
fixed the penalty for such a crime at
twenty years of imprisonment, and that
the same laws make the hanging of
the miserable wretch who was guilty of
the crime, murder and punish it with
Here, then, we have a bold, defiant and
gushing appeal to passion, the spirit of
vengeance and to hot blood, calculated
to stir other men in other communities
to take up the office of the law, usurp
its functions and establish for however
brief a period the reign of disorder and
murrjer. For it is simply impossible
for any community to approve and ap
plaud lynch law, with safety to itself,
and without injury to society, more far
reaching in its effects than most peo
ple pause to measure.
The officers in charge of the prisoner
Ivlitchell were elected to that office.
They had been sworn and commissioned
to discharge the duty of protecting him
from the mob. as much as if they had
been selected specially for that and no
other official duty. Had they not re
sisted, had they given over the wretch
to the mob, they would have been
guilty of murder, and that stigma would
have attached to them instantly. The
wry people who still in anger drive the
Sheriff into hiding would have hissed
"him upon the highway had he thrown
open the jail doors and told the mob to
do its work as it pleased.
The militiamen who responded to the
call of the Governor and came to the
aid of the Sheriff, obeyed the highest
promptings of loyalty to their State,
their oaths and their duties. Had they
refused, they would have deserved and
have had the scorn of men and would
have found no sympathizers if whipped
naked through the ranks of their com
rades. They fired upon the mob because
it was their duty to obey commands,
and those commands emanated from the
laws of the State of Ohio, made by the
people of that sovereign State.
Had they disobeyed what security
would the citizens of Urbana feel in
their company of the National Guard
as a protection to their rights,
lives and property when assailed
by lawlessness? If the militia
company now condemned, abused
and lampooned had refused to
stand by the Sheriff, even to firing up
on the mob of citizens of their own
community, no possible reliance could
be placed upon them to do duty in de
fense of the people, when the time of
trial comes, and the liberties and lives
of the citizens of Urbana are assailed
from the outside or the inside of the
community. H
Yet unwise friends and a maddened ' the reciprocity treaty in the interest of
community has permitted this woman j the trust solely and only.
who was so wronged, to scoff at the
citizen soldiery, that in resisting the
mob at the jail door was defending
with their li\ es her most sacred rights.
her right to life, liberty and property.
That is to say, the guarding of the
wretch who wronged her, was as much
a duty, and as high an office as would
have been guarding her home and
person from the assault of such as
Mitchell the ravisher.
It is sad to see any community so
carried away by passion and influenced
by blind rage and unreason, as have
been the citizens of Urbana in this
whole matter. Their demeanor has
been that of savages, for their raje has
continued unreasonably. Savagery
broke out when they beat and kicked
the man nearly to death and hanged
him after on the village green; it was
dominant when they exposed his mu
tilated body on the public square and
refowed it burial, and it reveled when
the people cut the clothing bit by bit
from the ravisher's body as souvenirs
of the dreadful event. But all this sav
agery was in heat passion and un
bridled anger, an anger we frankly
confess that had its prompting in a
sentiment of chivalry, regard for wom
anly honor, and in love of human right.
But the public letter of the woman
comes four days later, when blood has
had time to cool. It comes to re-in
flame, and under the guise of "thanks"
to demand that the men who fell in
lawlessness shall be lifted up as he
roes, "Who died in a holy and right
eous cause" of defying the law; doing
murder or seeking to do murder, and
resisting the very body of men they
had chosen to protect their own against
crime and lawlessness.
They did not die for "a holy and a
righteous cause" as Mrs. Gaumer holds.
They died by the weaponry of the law
for its violation. The men who shot
them did their duty, and instead of re
proaches ought to be showered with
commendations, since duty is doubly
difficult when one has to perform it
against those with whom he has been
daily and intimately long associated.
Mrs. Gaumer's card serves to cool sym
pathy for her somewJiat, unhappily,
but she will have no one to blame for
that but herself, and the ill-advising
friends who permitted her to parade
her shame anew.
The "Record-Union" has already
shown thai reason, self-interest and
commercial need and political sagacity
demand the retention of the Hawaiian
reciprocity treaty. It would seem to be
unnecessary to further argue the ques
tion, but for the fact that there are a
lot of people who are much interesting
themselves in endeavors to get Boards
of Supervisors to pass resolutions fa
voring abrogation, when the simple fact
is that Supervisoral Boards have not
studied the question thoroughly, and
when they pass resolutions demanding
abrogation of the treaty they do that
of which they have not adequate knowl
edge. This we say with all due respect
for Supervisors; nevertheless we assert
with perfect confidence in its verity
that not a single board called upon to
take such action is well and commer
cially informed upon the subject in a
degree that gives them warrant to
speak for the people and commercial
The boards are simply asked to deal
with a matter they do not understand,
because they have made no examina
tion of the subject that qualifies them
to pass upon such an important ques
tion. They are being made use of, un
wittingly, of course. Tr>*y should be
ware of all who seek to influence them
to make declarations against the treaty.
Unless they are willing to go upon rec
ord as ignorant of the merits of the
ease they will take no step against the
treaty until they have probed the ques
tion to the bottom.
Those who have passed adverse reso
lutions have been incited to do so by
emissaries of the sugar trust. The
State of California has a large and
profitable trade with the Sandwich
Islands. It is proposed now to delib
erately sacrifice that whole trade with
no possibility of regaining it. The cry
about sugar coming from the islands
in such volume as to influence the price
here is absurd, and will be for the next
twenty-five years. It will take a quar
ter of a century of time for any such
influence to affect the price of sugar in
this country. The plain truth is that
the abrogation of the reciprocal treaty
s'mply put off the ultimate annexation
of Hawaii, or the extension of a pro
tectorate, either of which is desirable.
Supervisors of counties are supposed
to represent very- largely, and especial
ly the interests of the farmers of Cali
fornia. In most cases Supervisors are
chosen from among farmers. When Su
pervisors, therefore, are besought to fa
vor abrogation, they are asked to cast
their Influence directly against the first
best interests of the farmers of this
State, and to play Into the hands of
the allied sugar kings.
It is a remarkable fact that the head
I and front of this great interest only a
j few years ago was diligently engaged
iin writing for reviews and newspapers
! articles directly opposed to the policy
,of abrogation now advocated by point-
I infr out the value of Hawaiian trade
!to the United States. Can farmers be
lieve for a momentt that the sugar
trust under the specious plea of pro
moting the beet-sugar industry is act
ing unselfishly and in their interest,
rather than for the schemes of tlie
These men have built up a vast busi
ness, involving millions of capital, in
' importing and refining, and would now
j have the farmers of California believe
j that they propose to wreck this enor
: mous business in the interest of home
■ agriculture. The truth probably is that
the sugar trust is planning to strike
home industry a blow, and that Its
change of fronit is made for purely self
ish purposes. It has put the betct-sugar
industry before it as a breastwork, and
from behind that bulwark is fighting
The simple truth is that hypocrisy
marks every argument and BMtrmnstlt
of the friends of the sugar trust when
they advocate abrogation en the ground
of protection of home interests. What
do they care for home interests, com
pared with the enormous interests of
the trust? As the "Record-Union" last
month pointed out, the value of the
entire imports into the United States
from Hawaii, including sugar, was $11,
--bTi7.O<H.», while the entire production of
sugar in the United States was only
901.000,000 pounds. In this relation,
then, we have an importation of nearly
4,000,000,900 pounds, and a local pro
duction of 800,000.000 pounds only. This
o!i.- incontrovertible fact exposes the
cheat of the claim in favor of abroga
tion, which would destroy a vast and
profitable export trade, on the ground
that it is Interfering with domestic in
dustry. That is a palpable falsehood.

Lively Runaway.
Yesterday afternoon a pair of horses
attached to an express wagon started
from Sixth and X streets northward
on a furious run. At Sixth and I they
collided with a Chinaman's outfit and
reduced the wagon portion of it to
splinters. The collision threw the
horses and they were caught.

General Belief That the Higiibinde
War is On.
Probability That the Man Arrested is
Not the One Who Killed
Eung Ah Chung.
The murder of highbinder Eung Ah
Chung in Chinatown on Sunday night
is still regarded as but a prelude to
other hostilities which will foliow.
Eung Ah Chung was a member of the
old-time aggregation of highbinders
known as the Fong Duck Tongs, which
for a number of years has bossed Chin
atown and levied assessments—genu
ine blood money—on their more peace
fully inclined neighbors. They ruled
things with a high hand, and had only
the King Hong Tongs to contend with.
But a truce was patched up between
these two tongs which has been more or
less respected, and the assessment dis
trict was divided into two sections, one
for each of the gangs of oriental rob-
Some time ago Chief Crowley of San
Francisco made kindling wood of the
headquarters in that city of the Suey
On Tong and the On Yek Tong, the two
gangs of murderers that terrorized the
Chinese quarters, and after throwing
the highbinders out on the street gave
them to understand that San Fran
cisco was too small to hold them.
So it happened that the Suey On
Tong and the On Yek Tong gangs of
highbinders looked about them for new
fields, and finally pitched on Sacra
mento. was not pleasing to the
local highbinders who had held un
disputed right to levy assessments for
years, and dark threats of hostilities
have been heard at each of the four
headquarters ever since the new-com
ers arrived.
Besides the four highbinder gangs
who threaten each other in Chinatown,
there is a fifth organization, known as
the Chee Kong Tong, and this is the
prey of the vampires. It is composed
entirely of shop-keepers and laboring
men, who pay toll to the highbinders
for the privilege of living. The Chee
Kong Tongs are keeping quiet, realizing
the truth of the old saw that "When
thieves fall out, honest men get their
It needed but a spark to ignite the
Inflammable material of which the
highbinder gangs are composed, and
that was furnished on Sunday night, as
recorded in yesterday's "Record-Un
ion," when Eung Ah Chung met his
Ju Sing, the member of the Suey On
gang, who was arrested shortly after
the shooting and locked up on suspic
ion of firing the fatal shots, may or
may not be the murderer. While the
police officers think they have the right
man, others who claim to be conver
sant with the Chinese situation, laugh
at the idea.
George K. Rider, who probably knows
more about the local Chinese than any
man in Sacramento, says Ju Sing is not
the murderer. The latter was seated in
his place** of business when arrested,
and Rider's knowledge of the habits of
Chinese who have committed crimes
tells him that they get out of sight as
quick as possible. He admits the prob
ability of Ju Sing being accessory to
the crime, but asserts that he did not
do the killing.
A Chinaman who was present at the
commencement of the difficulty says
that Eung Ah Chung had trouble with
a member of the Suey On gang, and
wound up by asking if he wanted to
"Yes, I'll fight you," returned the
Suey On man, who then walked away.
He was gone but a few minutes, how
ever, when he returned, accompanied
by five other Suey On men. and with
out ado opened fire, resulting in the
death of Eung Ah Chung.
The Fong Duck Tong gang were nat
urally anxious to have the police ar
rest the murderer of their young man.
and two who were present visited police
headquarters and said that Ju Sing
was one of the six men, but that he did
not fire the shot.
The police, with their usual sagacity,
and to show their appreciation of the
voluntary witnesses, promptly locked
them up in jail.
"Oh, yep, I sabbee all 'bout it," said
a Chinese shop-keeper yesterday. "I
know who gun-fighter was, you bet,
but I no tell him dlam fool pollismen.
Sometime Chinaman heap too muchee
talkee—all same get lock up. Guess I
talk too muchee now. N'wspaper man
belly much like pollisman sometime.
M' !>be I get lock up. I guess I d'no
noting 'bout it. My mouf all-same
The Chinaman evidently thought he
had talked too much, for he shut up
at once "all same clami" and all that
could be got from him after that was
"No sabbee."
All day yesterday Chinatown was dull
and while the highbinders who were
abroad kept their hands under their
blouses and looked warily on all sides,
nothing came of it. Indeed it was not
believed that anything serious would
happen, as the Suey Ons' big fighting
man is absent from the city. .
Dr. G. A. White, County Physician,
held an autopsy on the dead man yes
terday, and found that the ball
which caused his death had entered
the small of the back, and ranging up
ward lodged between the second and
third ribs on the left side. Coroner
Clark has not yet decided when he will
hold the inquest, on the remains.
Eung Ah Chung was formerly a
member of a gang of highbinders which
has few members on this coast, and
about eight months ago he informed
Officer Wilson that he had been obliged
to join the Fong Duck Tongs to keep
from being killed.
The Iroquois Club flakes Arrange-

Result of a Jap's Clumsy Descent
From a Car.
A Japanese ranch-hand named Masu
Mato, with a disregard of the laws of
gravity that would have done credit to
a Chinaman, stepped from a moving
car at Fourth and J streets last even
ing in the contrary direction to which
the car was going, and landed with
the back of his head on a rail. He was
rendered insensible, and taken to the
Receiving Hospital.
Mato regained consciousness after ar
riving there and showed decided signs
of intoxication. He was given a cot,
and in a few minutes was sound asleep.
About an hour afterward he began to
froth at the mouth, and Assistant City
Physician Ogden was called and made
an examination, resulting in a verdict
of "drunk." Not so much as a bruise
could be found on the Jap's hard head,
and he was bundled into the patrol
wagon and taken to the Japanese quar
ters in the alley, Third and Fourth, L
and M stive; s.
Three Young Men Start for Yosemite
"Billy" Newbert, George Readman
and Amnion Clay left the city at 3
o'clock this morning with the determi
nation to ride their bicycles all the way
to the Yosemite Valley. Not this
alone, but they have been boasting that
they would make the trip in two days.
They are all good and well-seasoned
riders, and they may be able to with
stand the blistering heat of the San
Joaquin plains and the Mariposa foot
hills, but there are big mountains to
climb, and heavy roads to plod over,
and if the plucky riders make the val
ley in three days, or even four, they
will be doing well.

His Wife's Fortune.
There are no flies on Myron Walker,
the lively little Sacramentan who mar
ried Mrs. Charles Scudder several years
ago, and who has since resided in
Belchertown, Mass.
A year or so ago Mrs. Walker sued
for a divorce on statutory grounds, and
now he has brought a counter-suit, al
leging desertion. The main point in the
thrifty Myron's suit is that he wants
one-half of his wife's fortune, esti
mated at 1250.000.

what is hurting him. Let him quit to
