Dalton Gang member is killed...
Item # 675030

THE BETHLEHEM TIMES, Pennsylvania, June 9, 1894
* The Dalton Gang original report
* Outlaw Bill Dalton killed
Page 2 has an article: "Bill Dalton Dead" "The Noted Outlaw Cornered & Shot Through the Heart". The dateline is from Ardmore, I.T. (Indian Territory, or what is now Oklahoma). The report begins: "Bill Dalton, the noted outlaw & leader of the Longview bank robbers, lies dead in this city, pierced through by a winchester bullet..." with more.
A very timely report as he was killed just the day before.
Eight pages, lightly browned, many tears at the margins with some chipping. Fortunately the Dalton article is in the middle of the page so no problem remotely close to it. Fragile & must be handled carefully.
