Subject: RE: Origins: The Ballad of Soapy Smith (Al Oster)
Soapy was traveling by train from Denver to Spokane (where his wife lived) and passed through Pocatello. During a stop there, he was shot at by three men and part of his mustache was shot away. He had to go to the cop shop in Blackfoot, but was cleared and was on his way the next day.

See more info on this and other incidents here.
