Colorado Transcript - June 18, 1908 – While Family Worships, Man Attempts Suicide. Kneeling in prayer with her children before the altar in St. Joseph's Catholic church last Sunday morning, Mrs. Joseph Streit had no premonition of the tragedy that was being enacted at that very moment at her home in North Golden when her husband, Joseph Streit, a mental patient, recently brought home from the asylum at Pueblo, arose from his bed and seizing a razor sank the blade deep into his left wrist, severing an artery in an attempt to commit suicide. When the family returned from church they saw the bloody razor in the window and fearing the worst ran into the room to find the husband and father lying unconscious in a pool of blood on the floor. Although given immediate surgical attention Streit's wound were of so serious a nature that it was at first feared that he might not survive. Several years ago prior to his removal to the asylum Streit had made an attempt to end his life. Fearing that he might become violent and attack his family or the neighbors Streit has been removed from his home by Sheriff Whipple and Deputy Sheriff Joseph Dennis and will be taken to a sanitarium or an asylum for treatment. Colorado Transcript - June 25, 1908 – Joseph Streit, who while his folks were at church May 14, attempted suicide with indifferent success, has been returned to the asylum at Pueblo, where he had previously been confined for several months.

Stuart, Charles
Charles Stuart – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 27, 1879 – The Vigilantes at Work – [Special to the Chieftain.] – Leadville, November 20. – At one o'clock this morning, forty-five masked and determined men proceeded quietly to the house of Sheriff Watson, and when he answered the summons, covered him with six shooters and forced him to accompany them to the county jail, in which there were three assistants who were provided for in the same manner as the sheriff, thus effecting an entrance without creating any disturbance or noise. The sheriff was told to open the cage in which was confined Chas. Stuart, who was wounded by Bockhouse last Saturday when attempting to rob him, the particulars of which have been already published. He was taken out and hanged to the rafters of an adjoining shed being erected for the jailors. Stuart had openly threatened Bockhouse's life as soon as released. Stuart was but twenty years old, and begged piteously that his life be spared, and when told that his doom had been sealed, asked to be allowed a few minutes to write to his mother at Connellsville, Pennsylvania, which was cruelly denied him, and was only granted time to say a short prayer and then launched into eternity. The next cell to be opened was that of Ed. Frodsham, a man whom the world should rejoice at his departure. He came here from Utah about a year ago, and for a short time figured conspicuously in the lot jumping business. His captors were inexorable and merciless, and launched their victim into eternity suspended to the beams of a new building in front of the jail, now being erected. Frodsham struggled furiously and his face bore marks of agony as he hung suspended to a rafter. When his request was denied to write a letter to his wife, he made a desperate effort to escape the fate which befell him. To the body of Frodsham was pinned a placard reading as follows: “Notice to all lot thieves, bunko steerers, foot pads, thieves and chronic bondsman for the same and sympathizers of the above class of criminals. This is our commencement, and this shall be your fate. We mean business. Let this be your last warning, particularly Cooney, Adams, Collins, Hogan, Ed. Burns, Ed Champ, P. A. Kelley and a great many others who are well known to this organization. We are seven hundred strong.”
