Robinson's Execution, Livingstone, Lorna, 1997, This Website

British Colonist
July 26, 1869

Ich-yat-ais, the murderer of Wm. Robinson, was hanged Saturday in front of the police barracks. The condemned man made an effort to address his people, who pressed around the gallows, but his voice was choked and his sentences unintelligible. He was hanged shortly after 7 o'clock and seemed to suffer little or no pain. The lesson will prove a salutary one to the Indians.
