To the mission educated Warner's Ranch Indian, Antonio Garra, this was taxation without representation, a rallying cry from the birth of our nation [ours, not his]. He organized the famous 1851 "Garra Uprising" in the face of threats to seize Indian cattle for taxes. Indians had no voice in the new U.S. government or courts. They had enjoyed rights and protections under Spanish and Mexican law, without taxes. Now, the US Army was encamped at Santa Ysabel and volunteers had burned the Cupeno village at what we now call Warner's Hot Springs. Nervous soldiers and militiamen tried in vain to interpret signal fires on surrounding hilltops. Life around here was exciting. Things escalated into a widespread tax rebellion to force the non-Indian aliens out of the back country to safeguard land and cattle. !n an attack on Warner's ranch, a house was burned and four "Americans" were killed at Agua Caliente, the hot springs. Long John Warner had wisely kept an escape horse saddled and he fled to his vaqueros by Lake Henshaw's Monkey Hill at the old Indian village of Tagui, pronounced Tawee. Garra was caught and tried by court martial before presiding liquor purveyor and militiaman  Joshua Bean for treason, murder, and robbery. Bean was also the first San Diego mayor under the new U.S. government, conducting most city business across the liquor-sodden bar of his grog shop. Army Major Justus McKinstrey, burly mustachioed owner of Rancho Santa Ysabel with its army camp, protested eloquently the treason charge, arguing that Garra owed no allegiance to the new State of California, his enemy and tormentor, being therefore a native prisoner of war, having defended his homeland from foreign invaders. It was a sound argument, and so the court sentenced Garra to be shot only for murder and robbery, dropping the treason charge. In order to convict him of anything, they had to overlook the lack of any evidence of Garra's direct participation. Right after sentencing, Garra was marched at the head of a firing squad to a grave you can still visit in Old Town San Diego's Campo Santo, next to the entrance. Father Holbein was badgering the reluctant Garra into a prayalong while mumbling and bungling his Latin, but the linguistically gifted Garra coached him along with it. His skills with diverse Indian languages had made him a prime suspect for coordinating the rebellion, iinasmuch as nobody likes a smart ass. The January 7, 1852 Herald reported how Garra knelt at the head of his grave, as a crowd looked on. Garra gravely asked forgiveness for any misdeeds and in turn granted forgiveness to the large crowd. Townsfolk noted his dignity and composure, and it appears they did not enjoy this execution as much as earlier ones or the later hanging of Yankee Jim for rowboat theft. The pesky priest badgered him also to accept a blindfold. Garra finally relented, just to get it all over with. Spectators said he fell into his grave laughing, perhaps this a nightmarish gurgitation of their own stifled sense of shame. The reporter wrote: "The sun's last rays were lingering on Point Loma whilst bells of the neighboring church chimed vespers. In an instant the soul of a truly brave [man] winged to regions of eternity, accompanied by melancholy howling of dogs, aware of the solemnity, casting a gloom over the assembled hundreds. They failed not to drop a tear over the grave of a brave man." Some months later, Cosmos, an Indian delivered up with a noose already around his neck, confessed to the killing and hanged himself from a peg in his cell wall, depriving people of an exciting execution. Mayor Bean started the new city government off corruptly by selling City Hall and public land to himselfand a drinking buddy. He and the new city council pioneered graft with a bloated $5000 contract for a shoddily built cementless jail just to the right of the Campo Santo and with a lucrative arrangement for renting out jailed Indians for forced labor. He was killed that same year in an ambush over a fancied femme fatale. A poor shoemaker was hanged for the crime before a different man confessed. Executions needed to be expedited, because jail space was limited and there were over 800 California homicides a year, not counting undocumented Indian, Mexican and Chilean miners, who either fled the goldfields or bled upon them. Mayor Bean's rascally brother Roy was soon jailed in Old Town for intent to murder a fleeing victim. He had a number of lady admirers and one brought him a nice thoughtful homey meal of tamales, one of which had a small knife in it. Roy Bean used that knife to dig himself through that infamous cobblestone jail's wall and ended up in Texas where he nominated himself the "Law West of the Pecos" in his saloon/courthouse. A photo of the pompous signage atop his "groggery" is an icon of old west lore. He misspelled it "The Jersey Lilly" for a celebrity beauty of variable virtue immortalized in a BBC TVseries.. An amorous situation concerning a lesser lady got him incompletely hanged. He was left alone to twitch and gurgle, but the aggrieved lady emerged from behind a bush and cut him down, leaving him with a bad case of rope burn and neck pain, which did no good to his personality. continued on page I1 4 I  | :
