and sentenced to the penitentiary for or year.
Trout tho Ariionn prfson (lilmo was sent to the
Stockton (C'ollfornlo) Insane asylum, from which
Institution he iubjuenlly escaped.
Alexander came to this place about a month
ago, since which lima he has worked at wood
sawing and other odd join for M. Kerrigan, J.
O. Richard and Henry lluden. Jusl previous
to his arrest he went to South slough to obtain
employment from I-akln In grttlng out match
wood or something of that kind.
While Alexander was about town his great

R. V. Hercc was one of Ihe first to suspect
Alexander, and Pierce telegraphed to the sutler-
Intrndcnt of the Ailsona prison, asking If Orime
had ecaied, The answer wai that he had been
sent from there to the asylum at stocuion, nan
escaped from the asylum, and that a reward of

The description given of Orime fits Alexan
der exactly except as lo age. Kelt atwut 5 feet

mustache: ha blue eics, llght-toloredhalr,
and several moles on his back.

fellow, nnd altogether too young to be Cicero

not ipille a years old, nad his appearance Indl-.-aii-t
ili.il he sooke the truth. He expressed tu-
prtmo contempt for the sagacity of the detectives
who compassed his arrest ana, a wry nau noi

perfectly willing that they might incur all ihe
trouble and expense they wanted lo on ms ac

tho matter of the Chlnee litigation concerning
tho aMIuctlon of 'He Tie. The grot misrepre

against our conduct constitute my excuse for
publishing the following plain statement or tue
facts, as developed In the testimony before the
court and which came to my knowledge during
Alioul eight week ago Tie Tie, ft Chinese

thereafter I was consulted In the matter. One
SueQttong being uected of tho aMIuctlon,
'the case irat quietly Investigated until I deemed
It advisable to arrest Sue Quong on a charge of
nUluctlng n female child under ifi years of nge
The examination developed the fact that Sue
Quong did entice the girl away and procured
her concealment In house In Marshficld. After
a full investigation and a defense by able attor
ney, Sue Quong wa held In 1500 liall tonnlwcr
nt Ihe circuit court on said charge. Tliat wa
the first ttcp. Next the attorneys of Sue Quong
cauMrd Tie Tie to make application lo Judge
Dyer to appoint her a guardian, alleging that
the wai lew than 18 year of age. ner nppn
eiilnn was set for hearinc February II, John
tin- Iwln- annotated temporary cunrdlan by
consent ol nil concerned. On the tilh day of
February. Ihe attorneys representing the parents
of Tie lie repaired to Umpire City, with wit-
nesses, to contest ,the appointment 01 n guar
dian. When the case was called up, Mr. Haz
ard, of counsel for the applicant, arose and
moved lo dismls the matter, a he dejfred to
prosecute it no further. Mr. II. lookfd peculiar
ly honest, hence I knew that there wa a play
till! H)A In the matter somewhere. U(xn In
vestigation I found that one Ah Sam. nn ex-con-
vlct, had been Induced lo iwearthat Tie Tie was
more lhan iB year of age, upon which a mar
riage license was Issued; that thus at one and
lhcametlmea proceeding w.n pending upon
the proposition tliat Tie Tie wa a minor, to
mislead u. while at the same time they had a
license issued on a false affidivil, made by one
of the worst Chinamen In Coos county, that sue
was not n minor. They had the Justice all
re uly lo perform Ihe marriage, but In the mean.
time Mr. Owen had taken steps to arrest tuong
for inducing Ah Sam to make a false oath In
the matter of the license. Uou investigation,
the court found fully thatix-rjury was committed,
but that there was not sufficient evidence of the
inducement by Quong kind of a Scotch vrrdicl
of not provrn. Then Tie Tie and ner attorneys
were again on Ihe ground, ready to liave her
marriage performed; but Sue Quong was induced
to mike a trip up Coo river. In charge of nn
officer, on a charge of attempting lo persuade n
female child away from her home. In tlic mean
time a suit was commenced in the circuit court
to enjoin Quong from marrying on the fraudu-
lently-obulned license. The application for a
temporary injunction was rt lor hearing, nil
iviriles aonearlnir U-fore lodge Dyer at my office.
In Ihe meantime an application had also been
made to have a temporary guardian appointed
for Tie Tie until a final hearing could tie had,
.nil at Judge Dyer appeared to belloubtful
uliout his rights lo grant an Injunction In the
matter, tho application was referred to Judge
lle.in. and us ihe attorney agreed In presence of
Judge Iher to take no tcp until the case could
be tried lu the circuit court on Us merits, anu as
Judge Dyer bad appointed a temporary guar
dian, hostilities ceased. Notwitswnding me tit
milon. on the very next day a miniate was
consummated on the bogus license, the attorneys
well knowing that an injunction and a hearing
on the merits would be fatal, as the evidence
produced In every instance piovcd the jjlrl to he
under 16 year of age.
The attorney for Sue Quong were Bennett.
Haxard and Wilson; for the pArenls of Tie Tie,
Watson, Oaen. Siglin Gray.
In the case where Quong wa held over for ab
duction, of course the county pays costs in the
first lustance. but In none of Ihe others, as the
MAlt well know, oral least had the means ol
There was still another case growing out of
the matter in Umpire City, charging Quong with
assault and battery. One Ah Jim came to me,
wanting Quong arrested for assault and battery.
I Inquired into the matter and found there was
nothing in il. Next I he-rd of it, Mr. Wilson
caused the arrest of Quong on Ihe same clmrge.
Submitting the complaint to Hazard before filing.
Strange in il may appear, Wilson' client wi in
for the costs.
Oiioni? hid six weeks lo get married, had thai
been the obicct of the abduction, but that was

Chincso entirely dliregnrd our marriage, that

I When Quong wat arrested he publicly declared

If he wanted a wife he would go tq China

the presence of W. O. Webster. T. G. Owen
and n number of other. I le had offered n white
nun $300 to assist In gelling her on board of a
schooner 10 ship her to San Francisco, where hu
said ho could sell her for oo. ns It the custom
nmoni? the Chinamen. 1 am thoroughly con
vinced that Quong will carry oul liU original in
tentions in the matter, if possible.
In the meantime, some of Ihe Chinese desired
lo have Quong arrested for selling whisky with
out a license, but as Owen was of counsel In the
other matter, and United State commissioner
as well, we deemed it not adyluulo to prosecute
whllo the other matter wa pending. When the
marriage tulisuutially ended the nutter, the ar
rest was nude and Quong sent to Portland, at
., niher Chinamen would have Iscen. under the
factt and evidence. It It true, the evidence was
all Chinese, but ihe defendant and the whisky
were alia Chinese, and if Chinamen will swear
falsely against Chinamen, Chinamen muslsulfer;
llul it all.
finally there ha for tome reason been a per
sistent effort to create public sentiment og-ilnst
