Item # 644658
October 19, 1899
ARIZONA DAILY STAR, Tucson, Oct. 19, 1899
* Rare old West title
* Wild West shootout
The top of a ftpg. column has: "ENCOUNTER WITH BANDITS" "A Sheriff's Posse and the Desperadoes Have a Battle" "Over 100 Shots Exchanged And One Bandit Killed, While Another Crawls Away to Die". A classic "Wild West" shoot-out with a dateline from Nogales, Arizona (see).
Four pages, quite nice condition. A territorial newspaper as Arizona did not become a state until 13 years later.
