The Infamous Black Bird Southern Oregon History, Revised

Jackson County News: 1878

    SHOOTING AFFRAY.--A young Kearneyite arrived here from California last week, and getting into a row with a Chinaman, while perambulating through Chinatown drew a pistol and fired at one of the Mongolians, but without taking effect. Marshal Helms and Deputy Sheriff Seybert arrested him and entered a charge of an assault with a dangerous weapon. Recorder Hayden fined him $10 and costs, and not having the bullion with which to liquidate is now boarding it out at the calaboose.
