"Soapy's Stars Arrested"

Soapy's Stars Arrested.

George Wilder, Joseph Bowers, W. H. Casey and Charley Adams, who are known to fame because of their ability to fleece the innocent lamb were arrested yesterday by Officer C. H. Hunter. They were taken before Justice Harper and gave bonds on the charge of bunco steering. They are the "stars of "Soapy" Smith's outfit and as the police intend to make it uncomfortable for the Seventeenth and Larimer street steerers, they are starting in with the known experts.
