---, "Drove the Chinese Out of Town / Mongolians Roughly Handled by an Oregon Mob." dateline Pendleton; Chicago Tribune, 1/23/1891. "Report comes from Milton, a few miles from here, that the Chinese were driven out of town last night by a mob. One hundred men went to the Chinese quarters and led the Celestials out with ropes around their necks. It is thought the mob consisted of discharged railroad section hands and their sympathizers in Milton. The Chinese were pretty roughly handled and it is said two of them were badly beaten."
