KILLED BY "WHITE 31 EX.
ilnrder or Chinee Hop Picker Near
Seattle.
Tho Seattle Chronicle o the 9lh
has an account of a murder of the
Chinese hop pickers at Squak, Kiug
county, "W. T., last Monday night.
The lirst account of the affair was
that Indians had done the shooting.
It is evident that white men are the
guilty parties.
The Chronicle says: "Wold Bros,
had entered into contract with Wall
Choug & Co., of Seattle, for the ser
vices of G7 Chinamen to pick their
hops. On Friday 37 of these pickers
arrived from Seattle, and went into
camp on S old Bros.' ranch. On Sat
urday 30 more Chinamen crossed
over to the valley aud had reached a
point about one mile from the hop
field when the Indians engaged in
picking for Geo. W. Tibhits rushed
into Ihe lano ahead of the Chinamen,
and though unarmed and harmless
made such a demonstration as to
frighten them back to Newcastle.
They retraced their stops in hot
haste, while tho Indians laughed
among themselves over tho success
of tho ruse. This episode added fuel
to the flame of objection which many
of the white residents had to the em
ployment of Chinese. It was bruited
about that Wold Bros.' had refused
employment to white neighbors. Mr.
Tibbits relates that a woman came
weeping to his store with the tale
tuat sue unit ner lamny muse snuer
because Chinamen had been engaged
to do the work they relied on for
support. Many outrageous and un
reasonable tales were uouotiesc set
floating through the community, and
the people became incensed against
the Chinese. It was claimed by
neighbors that there were pickers
enough in the Valley to handle tho
total 70-acre crop, and tuat tlie Um-
neso were not needed. Tho Chinese
wero to receive 90 02uts per box,
while the Indians were receiving but
75 cents, but the boxes used by Wold
Bros, are one-fourth larger than the
standard, and about equalized the
price. On Sunday this anti-Chinese
sentiment ran high, though there
was as yet no talk of violence. On
Monday, according to stories now re
lated by several parlies, there was
incendiary talk such as "I will fur
nish tho coffins for the last Chinee in
the valley," and "Yes, and I'll furnish
the ground to bury them in," etc.,
etc., and on Monday night this feel
ing of enmity culminated in the at
tack upon tho Chinese camp at half
past nine o'clock.
When the officers and reporters ar
rived at the Wold Bros.' ranch they
were guided at once to the scene of
the affray. It was just across the
orchard, some two hundred yards
from the house, and on a little
peninsula formed by a sharp bend
in the creek. There was not more
than one-half acre of ground in this
peninsula, and upon it were placed
sixteen "A" tents of the size usually
found m Chinese camps, aim they
were arranged in a ragged semi-circle.
Thirty-seven humans occupied theso
tents. Across the neck, of tho penin
sula, and somo twelve feet distant
from tho lirst tent, was the orchard
fence, aud it was across this fence
that tho assailants reached the camp.
Their approach was bo stealthy that
none of the Chinamen who were ly
ing in the tents, most of them asleep,
wero aware of it until the volley of
death dealing shots which opened tho
assault. We aro forced to take tho
story of surviving Chinese for an ac
count of what followed. They say
that the assailants numbered six or
seven, were white men, and advanced
from tent to tent, shooting down up
on the sleeping occupants. Ono Chi
naman described the volleys as being
"alle same as Chineso new year," and
the appearance of things at the camp
rather bears him out in the state
ment Wo counted seven shots in
one tent, and the dead bodies testify
that the bullets must have been fly
ing thick. One body has four wounds,
another three and another one. The
assailants stood close to each tent
and fired upon and shot downward
upon the recumbent occupants. As
described by the Chinese, there was a
sudden scattering immediately fol
lowing tho first vollies. The assailed
plunged over the creek banks for
protection, and sought means of es
cape in that ivny. Tho assailants
traversed tho camp before retiring,
and peered into tho tents to see it
any Chinaman were remaining. Sev
eral of the Chinamen testify that they
heard a voice shouting through tho
firing: "Kill the sons of b s!" and
"Don't let any get away 1" All of the
(Jhinanien agree that their assailants
were white men. It is the universal
opinion of the people of Squak that
the Indians had nothing to do with
it Ono Chinaman testifies that aft
er the shooting was over the party
assembled near the first tent, when
some words passed between them,
and ono gavo orders to fire the
camp. Tho first tent was set
on fire and burned, but the
flames did not spread to the others.
The assailants then left, passing
northward through tho orchard. As
soon as they dared, some of the
Chinamen returned to the camp, when
they found Ying Sun and Ah Get,
stark in death, whilo Fung Woo lay
on tho bank a few feet down moauing
in pain. Ho died within fifteen
minutes. A little further away were
found three wounded Chinamen, ono
shot through the side, another
through the hip and arm and another
through the hip. It is believed that
all three will recover. A special car
will be attached to this afternoon's
train from Newcastle to bring the
three dead and three wounded to
Seattle.
Shaving the reports of the China
men down to reasonableness, it is
likely that forty shots wero fired.
Some tin ware which was perforated
by the bullets shows that guns or
pistols of different calibre wero used.
In several instances the guns were
held so close to the tents as to pow
der burn tho cloth and the skin about
the wound of one of the dead was
noticeably blackened. Tho dead
Chinamen as they lay there in the
rain with their gore about them pre
sented a ghastly sight. The bodies
had not been cared for, as only two
trembling members of the Chinese
party had remained in the valley, and
their fears kept them away from the
scene of blood.
On Tuesday morning Justice of
the Peace Geo. W. Tibbits summoned
a jury and held an inquest upon the
bodies of tho dead. The testimony
was unsatisfactory so far as it at
tempted to fasten the crime npon
anybody. The Chinamen told their
story very much as related above and
nothing was developed warranting
more than a suspicion as to who the
perpetrators are. Tho verdict was as
follews:
Squak, Sept. 8, 1SS5.
We, the coroner's jnry summoned
by George W. Tibbits, justice of the
peace of Squak precinct, to hold an
iuqnest on the bodies of three China
men Ying Sun, Ah Yet and Fung
Woo killed on tho farm of W7old
Bros., find that the Chinamen came
to their death by gunshot wounds in
flicted by parties to us unknown.
A good many stones are afloat, aud
it is the intention of the officers to
remain upon the scene until the af
fair is cleared of its mystery, if ever
it can be. It is the present intention
of Coroner Dawson to hold another
inquest this afternoon, aud to sift the
testimony to the bottom. Thoro is
not much likelihood of ferreting out
tho perpetrators at tho present time
Those of the people who aro not m
sympathy with the crime know noth
ing calculated to assist tho officers
As a conclusion, we may say that
cowardly murder has been committed
uecent men would Hesitate to Kin a
litter of pups in the sneaking manner
adopted by these bqnak persons.
There was no reasonable cause for
the murders. When the Indians de
sired to rid themselves of the Chinese
thoy went hooting, bnt uuarmed, out
into the road in broad daj'lightkand
mv vjuihusu il'iu xui wneu mo
whites - the high-bred, humane, law
abiding, whites wanted to accom
plish the same rcsult.they did it by
shooting down like dogs some help
less human beings. There would be
the samo logic in killing the horses
which drew tho plow because you felt
it your inalienable right to hoe in
that ground. We believe tho better
people of Squak will bittorly curse
the day when the murder was used to
accomplish what a lusty club or even
the word of month would have sc
oured as well. If tho people had
quietly marched the Chinamen out of
the valley their presence was pollut
ing we could not help bnt endorse
them, but cold blooded murder can
find no justification here.
No higher praise cau bo bestowed
upon an individual than to say of him
he loves his fellow men. In the same
way the highest praiso that cau be
given to St Jacobs Oil is that it has
cured thousands who otherwise would
havo been helpless victims of rhou
matism. Dairymen's Meeting.
It has been decided by tho execu
tive board, to hold the "next meeting
of the Northwest Coast Dairy Asso
ciation, on the state fair grounds, at
Salem, Or., on Thursday, Sept. 24,
18S5. The hour for the meeting will
be announced on tho grounds that
day. Wo consider it a very good
plan to hold tho September quarterly
meeting at the state fair, because it
will give largo numbers an oppor
tunity to meet with the society who
could not otherwise do so, and it
should add a considerable number of
members to tho roll. This meeting
should be the mo3t interesting of the
year, and it i3 hoped that there will
be a large attendance. It is also pro
posed to havo a called meeting on or
about October 15th, at Portland, dur
ing the progress of the fat stock show
and the Mechanics' fair.
