A v ear later he was the sole owner nf tb.p store in Ab'lene and since the railroad had eone on another hundred miles to the west. Fue- per established a new store at the .terminus. Five years and five stores l?ter. Fu"«rer arrived in Saete Cit.v. This was the closest it would ever come to Texas and here. Fus?er d^rided. would be his last stand. Evenhiallv. someone would build a ra ; iroad down into Texas, but bv that time Fug?er would not care. Hea\*v feet clomned un the stn'Vs to the no'rch over the rear of the big store where Fusser did his bookk^eninc. The huge head of Bill Bleek aoneared. «V" Meter's here." Bleek said •horlly. "Sond him up There'll be some ^thers. too." Bill Bleek stomped down the stairs and after a moment Van Meter came up. He was about 40 a smooth-looking man in Prince Mberi and well-brushed derby "What's it about?" "Hong Kong Smith's arriving in town tomorrow." Van Meter nodded. "T thought he was due. His trail herd arrived yesterday." "The money might as well stay h*re, but it woo't if Luke Miller has much more to say. Smith would take his herds elsewhere," Fugger said. A step sounded on the steps eading up to the veranda and Fugger made a small gesture to the banker. The broad, placid 'ace of Morgan Holt, the hardware man. appeared. "Evening, Jacob," he said. "Thanks for stopping by. Morgan." More steps creaked on the stairs and two men came up, 3 ackard. the owner of the Boston Store, and McCoy, who owned the biggest saloon in Sage City. Close on their heels came a pudgy man of about 50. who wore a floppy black hat. a soiled white shirt and a long string tie. This was Judge Olsen. then rolled out the ball. "I called you here to talk about Luke Miller." "That's what 1 thought it would be about." remarked Packard. Fugger regarded Packard without pleasure "Perhaps shouldn't have asked you." Packard shrugged. 'T can leave " "And have you say we're al scheming behind your back? 1 Fugger snapped. "Stay. Ill say what I've got to say It's been a long winter and we've got a shor season ahead of us Four good months, maybe five We're businessmen tnd we've got to m the most of those months," "Amen!" exclaimed McCoy, the saloon man. "The point is." continued Fug ger. "what are we going to do about Luke Miller and his new* paper?" "I don't set that we can d anything," declared Packard "Luke's got a right to put out a newspaper." "I think." said Jacob Fugjter "we --an do without you." Packard drew a deep breath nd let it out heavily. 'T think ou can. But before I go, I want o 533 a few words.*' "You don't have to." "But I'm going to. I cam* to age City four years ago because was looking for a new town, where I could settle down with my family. I brought money to his town and I've made money icre. I've built a home and for five months of the year my wife s afraid to step out of the house and I can't let my children on he street for fear of a wild cowboy riding or shooting them down Sure, we've made money rom the Texas men. but we could have made it without them. The land that the cattle trample with their hoofs is the finest arming land in the state. Farmers have come in and more would come if they could settle down n peace The future of this area s not with the cattle drovers, out with farmers." Packard stepped to the stairs and descended them. "And now." said Fugger, heav- ly. "we'll get on with the business. Judge, how much did you make on fine* last year?" Judge Olsen squirmed. "Barely enough to get by" "You made." said Fugger, "S6245 Most of that money came from the Texas men." 'The marshal and his men arrest them." "They're not going to arrest many this year." * * * 'THE judge showed great displeasure. "But my office is a fee office There's no salary connected with it." "We'll nave to make other arrangements. The marshal and hi* men can't arreit people for every trivial violation of the city ordinances. A man ha* a right to enjoy himself in our town. We'll let that word get around among the Texas men and we'll have more herds coming here than all the other trail towna put together." "And What about Luk« Miller?" put in McCoy, the saloon man.
