The Territory versus Flaherty

This is listed in the History of the QTP as A Murder Trial, not by its title, so it might have been in preparation to be published on the 100th anniversary of the trial, perhaps. It describes a murder trial held in Huron, Beadle County, Dakota Territory in 1889. A footnote inside the front covers states:

James Carr, an Englishman, worked for one year in Huron, South Dakota, exactly fifty years after this trial and knew men who had witnessed it. He believes this account, dredged from the town's newspaper, to be an exceptionally fine specimen of the high-spirited Frontier reporting of that time.

The only copy I can find in a U.K. library is at Leeds University. There is a copy at the Université de Lille, France.
