Scope and content

“Chinaman Held Up – On Saturday morning last Sang Lee, who lives on Henry avenue, was on his way to Victoria with a load of vegetables and was near Mount Tolmie about 3 o’clock when he met an auto with four men in it. The auto stopped and three of the men go out, one of them caught hold of the horse’s head and the other two made the Chinaman step down and then they went through his pockets, where were, fortunately for Sang, empty. Finding no money on the Chinaman one of the men took a case of tomatoes and started to make off with it. The Chinaman caught hold of the highway man and attempted to stop him. In the struggle the two went down and the man at the horse’s head ran over and hit the Chinaman in the face. The robbers then made off with the tomatoes. Sang Lee could not see the number of the car, but notified the police as soon as he could get to a phone about the robbery.”
