Nice report on the Bill Cook gang...

Item # 691354

October 24, 1894

THE BETHLEHEM TIMES, Pennsylvania, Oct. 24, 1894  

* Bill Cook Gang

The top of page 2 has column heads: "MANY OUTLAWS LOOSE" "The Cook Gang Doing Wholesale Robbery in the West" "Aquia Creek Booty Recovered" plus various subheads. The text takes over a full column. The great article begins: "The latest performance in the grand carnival of crime which is now holding the boards of the Indian Territory consisted of the wholesale robbery of several small towns in genuine desperado style by Bill Cook, supported by eight or ten followers..." with more on the infamous Bill Cook Gang.
Eight pages, partially loose at the spine, minor margin tears, somewhat fragile & must be handled carefully.
