Mr. Owyang Ming to Mr. Cheng
Chinese were driven out of Nicolaus, Sutter County, by a mob last night. We sent the following dispatch to governor:
The following dispatch from Marysville, Cal., just received at this office at half past one this morning:
“A mob attacked Chinese residents at Nicolaus, drove them on board a steamer. Ask governor to protect us immediately.”
Will you please give your immediate attention to this?
F. A. BEE, Consul.
His reply is same in all cases like this:
The sheriff of Sutter County has not notified me of his inability to enforce the law in his county.
Call the attention of Secretary to this.
