Luke Miller mn* a little pnper flprhtinc: to make It a decent place to live, hot he in foiled by Jacob Fnjcper. who ovrn« most ot the toivn and tvho •»vnnti» to . keep the place vride open sio cowboy* from Texns will *pend their money there. Work- Inp for Miller in n mild-mnn- »ere<l printer called "John Bailey." who.«e real name in We» Tnncred. the man tvho iihot the '""Robin Hood'' outlaw Saw Older. Tnncred. n short time before, foiled a *tasrconch robbery nt Tnrkcy Creek wliere the npent VCKJICT was tcillvd. Afterwards Tancred revealed hi.<« identity to T,anra. the aprent'* dauchtrr. * * « VII 'TANCRED hastened through his breakfast and went down to the print shop. As early as it was, both Hudkins and Miller were already on the job. And they had heard about John Bailey. Miller had a copy of the Wichita paper in his hand as Tancred came into the shop. "This true?" he asked. Tancred took the paper from Miller and skimmed through the piece about the Turkey Crossing affair. It was a lurid account, as told by the driver of the stagecoach and the passengers who had seen the evidence and had received additional information from the hysterical surviving witness whose father had been murdered by the men whom retribution had overtaken so swiftly. Tancred handed back the paper to Miller. "They didn't get this from me." "But it's essentially true?" "I worked for Vesser, the agent at Turkey Crossing until last •veek." "You were a hostler?" "J wanted to work outdoors for a while." Miller looked thoughtfully at Tancred. "Is John Bailey your real name?" "Does it matter?" "You're a printer. As long as you can set up type your name could b« Benjamin Franklin. Or Johann Gutenb*rf } " Miller got up and nodded to the rear of the shop. "I had your cot set up. Why don't -you gel your things from the hotel and movt in?" Tancred nodded and left the print shop. He rounded the corner and strode to the hotel. As he reached it he remembered that there had been no soap in the hotel and decided to buy some. He was about to cross to the Boston Store, then saw the sign of the Fugger Store. He was curious to see Jacob Fugger. who loomed so importantly in the affairs of Sage City. He entered the store, saw a middle-aged woman behind the notions counter. He swerved away from it to go to the rear where he saw shelves of groceries. And then he stopped Behind a counter containing clothing was Laura Vesser. He moved toward her. "T didn't expect to see you here." Her eyes were steady, but impassive. "I've b«en her* for a week." "Why Sag* City? I thought you'd be going east." "I've nothing in the east." She paused. "I heard you were here." "I'm working at the print shop. [ was a printer before I camt to Turkey Crossing." "It's a job. Like this one." The casual indifference in her tone caused him to look at her sharp- y. She said, "Is there anything I can do for you?" He shook his head. "If you need anything, Mr. Bailey," she went on. emphasiz- ng the name, "Fugger's Store has it Everything from shirts to shoe*, groceries to—guns." H« nodded and walked stiffly out of the *tore. * • • fT took him only a moment to * get his things together at the hotel. "Y«i mm b*v« tfat for Hong Kong Smith." Tancred told Handy, who was talking to a swarthy man. The note] man grimaced. "I can fix you up with another room. Mr. Bailey," "I've found another place." "Sorry to hear that. I'd been proud to have you stay Oh—Mr. Bailey, shake hands with Chuck Gorey. Chuck's one of our deputy marshals." Gorey's hand was entirely free of calluses. The hand of a professional gunfighter. "How're you?" Tancred said. "Good to find." replied Gorey, his pale blue eyes regarding Tancred appraisingly. "So you're the lad wiped out those bad men over at Turkey Crossing?" Tancred made an impatient gesture. "Time I got to work." Tancred was not pleased, but the deputy marshal fell in beside him. As they came out of the hotel, Gorey said softly, "I didn't think Miller had it in him." Tancred looked at him. "What do you mean?" Gorey grinned. "Can't say's I blame him for sending for you.*" "Luke Miller hired me—as a printer—before he even heard of the Turkey Crossing thing." "All right. Bailey." A gun banged up the street. It was followed by a veritable thunder of gunfire, punctuated by the whooping of a score of men. "The train's in." said the deputy. "That'll be Mr. Hong Kong Smith'* boys welcoming him." He chuckled. TANCRED went to the print shop Packard, the owner of :he Boston Store, was leaving as le came in. A frown creased Luke Miller's forehead. "Fugfer's declared war," Miler said "He called a meeting of the city council last night From now on Sage City's an open town, Packard tried to talk against it and Fugger ran him out of th« meeting." He winced ac the thunder of gunfire on South Street came over "Hong Kong Smith's arrived ,n town." Tancred said.
