Rosecliff Mansion in Newport and Chinese Railroad workers in California, any connection ?
Owner's father James Graham Fair employed 600 Chinese immigrant for the job which included two tunnels, one 6,200 feet long and the other 5,000 feet long. In the course of the tunneling thirty-one workers lost their lives largely due to natural gas explosions during the tunneling process. (California Coast railroad)

OVER 30 CHINESE RAILROAD WORKERS WERE KILLED IN EXPLOSIONS IN 1879 CAUSED BY THE SEEPAGE OF OIL AND GAS OUT OF THE WALLS OF THE TUNNEL AS IT WAS CONSTRUCTED OVER 6,100 FEET THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN. SOME SAY THAT THE HUNGRY GHOSTS OF THOSE CHINESE KILLED IN THE TUNNEL
