Sept. 12, 1906: It was time for a trim, so F. A. Powers, a miner from Yuma, stopped by a 5th Street barbershop sporting "whiskers like an Arizona chaparral."
A barber named Lewis snipped off the whiskers, gave Powers a haircut, creamed his face and colored his hair, The Times reported. When Lewis charged the miner $6.25 for his work, word quickly spread and angry Angelenos swarmed his shop, yelling "Robber!" and "Thief!" and demanding that he be lynched.
