News from the Past: Robbers

An air of "wild and wooly west" was seen as the train passed through last Friday evening. Inside were a gang of four supposed to have been connected with the bank robbery at Stephen last week. They were linked together with handcuffs and shackles and were closely guarded over by a posse of sheriffs with Winchesters in hand. They had been arrested in the vicinity of St. Vincent and Emerson and were being brought back to Stephen for examination.
