Item # 619406
September 15, 1892
THE HELENA INDEPENDENT, Montana, Sept. 15, 1892
* Dalton Gang captured
On the front page is report with a small one line, one column head: "Dalton Gang Captured". The report, datelined "Kansas City, Sept. 14", reads: "A Times special from Paris, Tex., says a telegram from Deming, N.M., states that four of the members of the notorious Dalton gang were captured there last night. Those captured were Bob Dalton, leader of the gang, Grant Dalton, Amy Dalton, Sam Wingo, and Three-Fingered Jack. Deputy Marshall Williams has been following...the trail of the desperadoes since their last robbery in July. He followed them into Kansas, Colorado, and finally New Mexico, where the capture was made. The gang is wanted in Indian Territory, Kansas, New Mexico and California, on charges of train robbery, and the rewards offered aggregate $22,000."
Nice to have this report on the front page, & great to have in a title from the West.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine, very nice condition.
