Cartoon titled "F.E. Warren, The Chinese Protector. "Pack the Jury, They Must Be Convicted." (Copyrighted by the Evanston Register.)

After the riot, Evanston residents handed Wyoming Territorial Governor Francis E. Warren a petition asking that the Chinese be paid off so they’d have enough money to leave. But the governor refused to do anything saying the matter was between the company and its workers and none of his business. There was a sizeable population of Chinese residents in Evanston and prejudice was high after the Rock Springs Massacre. This poster was published in the Evanston Register during Warren's gubernatorial campaign of 1890. Emotions still ran high in Evanston and the surrounding area years after the riot.
