    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Clarence Darrow defended those who admitted responsibility for the revenge killing of one of the accused rapists mainly because he needed the money after bad investments made before the 1929 Stock Market crash. He also told reporters he was looking forward to it because, "I have never been to Hawaii."

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Ah Quon McElrath (Hawaiian resident): He (American Admiral Yates Sterling) felt that White womanhood was at stake. And anyone who tampered or destroyed it should probably be destroyed themselves.
