Unimak Island - at Cape Lapin.
4 prospectors - left one load of their
goods, including rifle, shotgun, revolvers
& all their ammunition and returned for the
second load. Hardy got into camp, got
their arms and when they landed with the
next load shot Con. Sullivan & his brother
Florance and P. J. Rooney - and came within
an inch of wounding Owen Jackson, who
after the most terrible hardships finally
escaped, and reported the murder - after
wandering nearly crazy for 20 days -
It was an atrocious, coldblooded and
horrible murder - there is one circumstance
however, in my mind, that I want investigated
and then I am beyond doubt in favor of
hanging the murderer Hardy, who
was found with all their property, money,
watches, &c &c. in his possession.
P. C. Sullivan, of Tacoma & John W. Corson,
of Seattle defended him - ably.
