McGuire Editorial. Murder of two black men convicted. Mention of police officer Joyce.
McOuire' Conviction and Sentence. Twenty - seven days ago, a colorod man, named SamuelJackson, was brutally murdered at Schuetzen Park, while endeavoring to protect his sister from insult at the hands of a white ruffian. Yesterday afternoon John McGuire was convicted of that murder, and by Judge Barnard sentenced to imprisonment for life.
