Item # 679465

June 13, 1907

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, June 13, 1907

* Albert Horsley (Harry Orchard)
* Idaho Governor Frank Steunenberg
* Assassination - murder trial


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "HARRY ORCHARD WEPT LIKE A CHILD" with subhead. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 6 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine, two small library stamps within the masthead, generally very nice.

wikipedia notes: Albert Edward Horsley, best known by the pseudonym Harry Orchard, was a miner convicted of the 1905 political assassination of former Idaho Governor Frank Steunenberg. The case was one of the most sensational and widely reported of the first decade of the 20th Century, involving three prominent leaders of the radical Western Federation of Miners as co-defendants in an alleged conspiracy to commit murder.
