Description

Edward “Stan” Healy recites the history of a well-known train robbery that occurred at Bearmouth near Missoula, Montana on May 27, 1905. He describes the rescue party that came from Missoula to stop the robber, Clarence B. Young, and another rescue party that came from the state penitentiary at Deer Lodge, Montana. Healy relates how Young was wounded by the train messenger, George Laub, before he could get away with the gold from the train. Healy concludes by describing Young’s interment in the state penitentiary in Deerlodge, Young’s escape attempt with two other inmates that resulted in the death of Deupty Warden Robinson, and Young’s release 18 years later.
