Tjuke Miller, editor of .the SaK« City pnper. battles to ntake the own a Invr-nbidius: place, but he i» fl^litinj? nyalnst Jacob FajCKcr, irho O'wna most .'of the bn!»ine»sc« 1" tovrn. An ace in the hole Miller doen not realize he has in a printer knorrn a.«. John Bailey, who - foiled m niajcc robbery at Turkey Creek. In re.ility. Bailey in We» Tancred who killed the notorious ontlaw Sam Older, Bcc.insie Older -H-a.i a Icjarend, Tancrcd has become an outcast. * * * IX rpANCRED entered the Bon Ton Cafe and seated himself on a !*tool beside a giant of a man. IBill Bleek. The waitress came up. "Hello, iMr. Bailey. What'll it be?" "What've you got besides .steak?" ". "Steak." - "Then make it steak." The girl went oft* and Bill 'Bleek turned to Bailey. "Like Sage City?" he asked, "A town's a town." . "Most people don't like Sage City," Bleek went on. "Stranger : in town got his teeth knocked out last week. Some broken ribs, •too." " "I mind my own business," fTancred said. < "Like at Turkey Crossing?" : Tancred looked sharply at (Bleek. "Who knocked out this (stranger's teeth?" •' "Me." "That's what I thought.* "Bill Bleek is the handle. I work for Jacob Fugger." :" "I work for Luke Miller." "That's why I'm talking to you. You got a good set of teeth and there^ ain't no dentist in Sage •City." • Lee Kinnaird came In from the street, He frowned as he saw Bill Bleek, but he quickly erattd the frowa. 1. "One of your Texas friends just killed a faro dealer over at McCoy'*." "You're the marshal." *Uh-uh, not any more I'm not." "Jacob know?" "I'm telling you to tell him." Bill Bleek looked at Kinnaird thoughtfully. Then he got up. "Well, since you ain't the marshal any more . . ." He suddenly hit Kinnaird in the face, a savage back-handed blow that knocked Kinnaird backward over a table. Kinnaird got to his feet, blood dribbling from his mouth. "Where's your gun, Bleek?" he cried. "You know I don't carry one." "Then get one." * * * "DLEEK regarded Kinnaird impassively. "So you can gun me? Uh-uh, I'll fight any man living with'my fists, but I'm no gunslinger." His eyes nickered to Tancred. "Hear that, Bailey?" "I heard it." "Get out of town, Kinnaird," sneered Bleek. "If you're not working for Jacob, you're against him." Bleek swaggered out of the restaurant. Kinnaird dabbed at the blood on his chin. "You saw that, Bailey," h« said, "What do you think of it now?" "When I get back to the shop, I'm setting up *n editorial that expresses it very well." Tancred paused. 'The title i», 'The Devil ajyi Texai Rule Sage City.'" "Does the piece give the name of the Devil?" "Jacob Fufger." Kinnaird whistled. "I think I quit my job ju*t in time!" "What about the deputies?" "Slattery's a Texas man himself. Only h* can't go back to Texai because a couple of sheriffs want him. Chuck Gorey . .." Kinnaird shrugged. "He says he talked to you thi* morning." "Y*§, M did." "Is it true, what he said?* "No." "Sony to hear that I was kind of wishing it was true. But the Turkey Crossing thing—that was true?" "They killed Vesser, the agent, in cold blood. I—I caught them by surprise." "Three against one?" "They weren't expecting it." Kinnaird shook his head slowly. "I have a strange notion, Bailey—that I'd rather fight Bill Bleek's fists than go up against you with a gun." * * * JACOB FUGGER entered Mc«* Coy's Saloon and bore down on Hong Kong Smith who was leaning heavily against the bar. Fugger did not glance in the direction of the faro.table, where the dealer lay on the floor. "Smith," Fugger snapped. "What's the name of the cowboy who shot Thatcher, the faro dealer?" Smith became cagy. "What do you wanna know for?", "So he can be arrested." "Nobody's going to arrest any of my men." "This man's going to be. He's got to be, Smith. He killed a man." "It was self-defense," Smith said doggedly. "All right, then he'll be acquitted. But he's got to stand trial, Smith. I go along with you pretty far, but I can't go along with you on killing. He's got to stand trial." "Harpending won't stand trial, Fugger. He's a high-spirited man and he won't— " "Is this Manny Harpending you're talking about?" "One of the best boys in Texas." "The story is that he killed two men in Texas," snapped Fugger. "And that marshal over in Newton, two years ago. I still say he's got to give himself up." "He won't." "Then he's got to be arrested." Fugger held up his hand. "There were witnesses—you were a witness, weren't you?" Hong Kong Smith suddenly guffawed. "Yes, sir, I sure saw it. Manny shot the dealer in self-defense."
