Dread fear and anxiety sells newspapers and influences elections. It .has always been thus. It used to be the bugaboo of "card-carrying communists" infiltrating government. Then there was "MAD" (mutually assured destruction with A-bombs], resulting in a wacky Peter Sellers movie. The February 22, 1873 San Diego Union had a pretty scary article for folks in Julian. It was entitled "Rumored Uprising of the Mission Indians." It must have made many a miner clasp his pickaxe more tightly in the cold black of night. It read: "On Saturday a man arrived in Julian from the camp of Mission Indians at Santa Ysabel." It continued, "He reported that they had assembled at that point in large numbers (from three to five hundred strong) intending to make a raid on Julian City and massacre the inhabitants in revenge for the killing of the Indian who was taken out of jail a few weeks ago and murdered." Getting out of jail in Julian was not always a good thing. It's true that a lynch mob had hanged the Indian, and also maybe true that the Indian deserved it, according to what I have read in that newspaper (which is not always to be t believed). It was not only Indians who had a regrettable tendency to get hanged; in Santa Ysabel a black teamster in the army camp got himself hanged without trial just for saddle theft. New Englanders like Bill Marshall, storekeeper at Warner's hot springs, enjoyed the privilege of a trial before hanging. He was probably innocent of high treason, according to a published study by Lee Bibb, but got to strangle over a half houranyway. The ungenerous hangman gave him less than a one -foot drop from the cart, giving little bounce. At Warner's adobe store, Bill had overseen gambling and a pawn shop, while serving up "grog" [booze] to Indians and emigrants. Having an Indian wife and child, he was seen to have questionable patriotism. The young man was caught between two worlds. The only Indians who converged on Julian came in June of 1875 after another mysterious jail hanging. A delegation of 50 indignant Indians wondered why Sole had hanged himself, since he was in jail only on a trivial drunk and disorderly charge. Besides, he had been bound with rope. An "official inquiry" was promised, but no one was fingered in the coroner's report other than "parties unknown." Julian was a town that knew how to keep its secrets. A 4 muckraking history buff can't even locate the miners' relaxation resorts anymore. I'm sure some ladies might have had skills beyond baking Julian pies. On June 22, 1878, another Indian with the pious name of Juan de la Cruz was under guard in the Julian jail. He had unwisely chosen a popular victim to stab on the Banner road - Mrs. King, a good wife of a Banner mine owner. A group of concerned citizens earnestly discussed the matter. The more "grog" they swilled, the more clearly emerged the righteous path to justice and it led straight to that wooden jail. Off they went. In the witty slang of the gold country, a tree branch would bear "queer fruit". They had a quaint way with words, these forefathers. The lynched suspect was found in an adjacent field near the scene of his crime, probably near our library. The guard, Bill Woods, was not asked to identify the men who "subdued" him and he admitted that his resistance had been less than vigorous. The newspaper had correctly predicted that "the abundance of stout oak timber" in Julian would quickly weigh the suspect's culpability. Still, no "rumored massacre" ever Julian. So, can we now snicker at olde timey fearmongering and sensationalism? Not so fast. The more geezerly among us may recall that our expanded bombing of Indochina was based on "Gulf of Tonkin" reports which were already retracted when President Johnson used them as a pretext for bombing. The media ran with the breaking news, but as always the truth was revealed much later and ever so quietly. More recently, there were those WMD's. The president and General Powell cited the ever-shifting, already debunked reports of "Curveball," a weasely Baghdad con man, thief, and cab driver who received a Mercedes and a nice life in Europe for his contributions. His codename is the title of a revealing book and is good for googling. There were also those forged "yellowcake" papers about Saddam ordering uranium ore from Niger, a story which had already failed to meet the journalistic standards of the fleshy Italian boulevard magazine "Panorama." But it was good enough for a State of the Union address and domestic corporate media. Condi Rice solemnly invoked mushroom clouds. Naysayers were punished, but not hanged, which shows just how far we have come. Google "Plame affair" if you can't let bygones be bygones. Today, many are stockpiling guns in response to news media saying Obama will take away our guns (which he will have to pry from my cold dead hands, in the immortal words of Charleton Heston, NRA president). Smith & Wesson shares have doubled since I sold ours while in a crisis of faith in our impending terror f OK, lots of newsy stuff is over the top, but even you critical readers can believe what you read here. For sure. No doubt about it. "Fair and balanced" is US. For instance, we now report breaking news that there is an upgraded old jail at the corner of Fourth and C. Feel free to visit. It's an eerily quiet spot these days with nary noose nor lynch mob in sight, no "queer fruit" twisting slowly in the wind. The Julian Historical Society saved it for all posterity and you. Just watch out for the (groan, gasp) rattlesnakes, recluse spiders, and [ugh!] flesh eating bacteria of mass destruction. Don't be "history" instead of just reading about it. OK, so it's just a quaint old jail, but maybe a little creative hype could pull in even more tourists. It looks sinister enough to spin and rebrand as our very own gold rush Gitmo. After all, Colin Powell and Curveball juiced up a dusty seed packing plant into an axis-of-evil bio-weapons factory. It can be done, honest. It just takes imagination. 1 Election continued from page I the election. Spencer Valley will see the imcumbent remain.
