The Highbinder Murder Case

In 1883 an African-American man named Johnson was killed in "Hop Alley", St. Louis Chinatown, and later his head was found in a basket of rice.
Though there were no witnesses, the police arrested six Chinese men as suspects. They were prosecuted vigorously, but due to lack of evidence they were not convicted.

A THIEF REALLY COUGHS UP

Oscar Gray was arrested last night on complaint of Jariano Dipian of 410 Oak street.
Dipian was standing in the alley between Grand avenue and Oak street when he says Gray walked up and compelled him to surrender his pocketbook, containing $25.20.
When Gray saw the police coming he put the purse in his mouth, and tried to look as though nothing had happened. Sergeant Dennis Whalen saw the suspicious bulge in his cheek, however, and prodded him energetically in the back with his nightstick.
" Ow " cried Gray, and the pocketbook dropped out of his mouth.

LONE HIGHWAYMAN ROBS SEVEN MEN IN SALOON

The fourth holdup of a saloon within a month occurred last night about 11 o'clock, when a stranger entered the Dramshop of Sam Yocis, on Collinsville avenue near Ohio avenue, East St. Louis, and compelled six men, who were there, besides the proprietor, who was behind the bar, to throw up their hands, while he searched their pockets.
The robber did not obtain any money from the men, so he backed in behind the bar and took $40 from the cash register and disappeared. He was smooth-shaven and about 27 years old.
