[Fri. May 23, 1902] The matter of prosecuting Marshal Richards and Joe Jordan for "jury fixing" is being pushed vigorously by McGinn, Jeffrys and Cody - Evidence is being gathered, but the Marshal is now aware of investigation and he and his "gang" are now trying to intimidate the witnesses.
[Saturday 24] Saw Lang, one of Richards gang taking Hayden, one of the witnesses for McGinn, back of Pac. St. Whaling Co. building on beach - evidently to coax him to quit. McGinn & Jeffrys tell me that they have the affidavits, &c. of witnesses. The Marshal wrote McGinn a bitter letter today - only such as a drunk man or a fool would write - he also abused McGinn & me to Jeffrys - the lawyer. - Motion calendar today light - things about cleaned up.
