    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.)

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