  • JtR in Montana

    From a Welsh paper, 11 April, 1890.

    This is near my area of the U.S.

    Anna:

    Dig this :

    I also think its suspicious that the woman's first name was mentioned as 'Helena'.
    As you know, Helena is the capital of Montana.

      Wow! That is a mixed up story!

      (For what it's worth, Lizzie Borden's maid, Bridget Sullivan, eventually settled in Montana. There were a lot of Irish in some mining districts. I have looked at JtR coverage in those papers, hoping someone would have said they were related to MJK but never found any personal comments like that.)

        My guess on the original Montana story, if it is true, is the woman was not killed by a Chinese man. There were a number of Chinese massacres here in the west and mass lynchings or massacres of Chinese always made for good entertainment in those wild towns. (Including very early Los Angeles.) I know about a number of these massacres and cannot name one which was the result of actual criminal acts by Chinese.

          The necktie party in L.A. ( 1871) started when a pale male ( Robert Thompson) was shot to death by a Chinese fellow.

          The violence at Rock Springs, Tacoma, and other spots wasn't a direct result of Chinese aggression towards the Whites but rather their willingness to work for lower wages than Whites ( The greedy White capitalist pigs were all too happy about that).

            Forgot to say, Anna.....you may be right about the Chinese guy being a scapegoat.

            I've always had my doubts about a pross and Chinese man hooking up in that way. The two races didn't have much social, much less sexual, intercourse back then.
