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.

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.
