TUESDAY JULY 12. 1887. COVKTr OFFICIAL J'AVER. HOMO DI HAftGEO. The People Dlaagree AFilh The Jury, A San Francisco dispatch of the lllh instant say a: Yesterday morning at Colusa the ver diot was opened, which hud been agreed upon by tire jury duriug the night, in the case of the people th. Hong Di, Chinaman, for the murder of Mrs. Jos. Billon several weeks siuce. The jury was out fourt en hours. The populace grew so eurugcd because a verdict vrus not rendered at onoe that an organism tioa was formed to carry out the lynch law in ease the jury did not find H ug Di guilty of murder. The verdict at last leudered was for murder, with a penalty of life imprisonment. This case in brief is as follows: lloug Di was working for Mrs. Billou, as was also a muu named Weaver. While Mrs. Billou und family aud Weaver were at the dinuer table, Hong DI, who states he wuh afraid that Wea\ or would kill him. shot the latter, wounding him, then shot sud killed Mrs. Billou. He afterward shot several times with the seeming intention of killing Mrs. Billou's daughter. Billou himself was absent from home that day on busiuess. A it-. 1? ? ? n. vuuipuujr ui iue maiotiHi liuard troops was pluc. d at the jail at Colusa, Oulu, I aft evening, by order of the Gov ernor, in order to protect the Chinese murderer Hong Di, who shot and Kill- d Mrs. Billou, six months ago. The ex* cituuieut of the populace regarding the verdict, fixing the penalty ut imprison*, lnent for life, was so great that uU or ganized attack on the jail was r<g itdec^ asimuinent. The excitement* having appiirently died away, the guards* Avere removed shortly before muiuighl. At two o'clock this morning a baud nt armed men, numbering nearly two hun dred, surrounded the jail and seized the Sheriff. Entrance to the jail having been effected a search for the Chiuauiuu was hegau, lie was found secrete^} un der the jailor's room, having been placed there by ui< bus of u trap door. He was taken through Chinatown, where not a single liftbt appeared, and beyond to the railroad jards. Here the Chiuainuu was plied with questions, but was so frigliteued that he had lost the power of speech. The rope was adjusted uud he was swung from the crossbar of a rail way turntable, wheie be was left sus pended. The murder oommited by Hong Di was peculiarly atrocious, he having beuu well treated and educated by the Billon family. He was only fleventeen years old. The indignation of the populace ran ?gainst the jury also, especially two who had held out against hanging. TXIK IMPIIIMONKD KINKKN, The long suspense i* ended, and the bodies of the unfortnnute miners who wrie t< m')ed 1500 feel underground on Friday night, Juue 24th, Litre been re. covered aud identified. Front a special dispatch of ibo 10th instant to the Sil ver btnte we reprint the following: The l>odies of the men were found at a distance if ul>out 800 feet from where they opened ih'J bulkhead and entered the drift nnd within 200 feet of the in oliued winze for wi ioh they were mak ing. Toe winze is nu old one on the Con. Vs. ground and lead* down to the 1700 level. They were stopped by s, big cave that closos the drift. All were found lying in a 1 ne along the drift. Pete E Idy wax in toe lend, next to hiin lay John Kennedy, then RI ward -IcfT ey, then Oka*. Dougherty, behind him Mer lin Trcgalli* and in the rear Foster Hamilton. The men appear to bM? been oo upletcly exhausted, and when ihey found t ie way stopped by the ouve 1% the drift Uv down aud died. 7 The work of bring:HK 'be bodies oat of the mine w<ut accomplish- d nioie speedily than wan thought possible early this evcuing. The miners below worked like heroes; they bad a disagr euble tank to perform as well iih a iuo?t ardu ous one nud were in haste to have it over. All the bodie-t reached the sur face iu good condition except that of Mu r iu Tregal.ia which was so much de composed that it uliuont fell to pieces iu handling. When the bodies had all been brought to the top of the cauueot ing winze and placed in boxes and unt ried out on trucks to (he Con. Vn. shaft, a distance of 500 feet, two boxes were then placed together ou the cage and orongbt to the tfurf&ce. tio ends 15 days of anspeDfie and anx iety, such as never had before been ex p rieuced by the people of the Coin stock. The recovery of the bodies is a gri at relief to all the men and officers of the mines concerned, and to the people of the whole town. SAY! Ill Do You Think?
