The councilmen looked toward i Jacob Fugger who made a nega- ; tive gesture with his head. The i council voted five to one against • Packard. The voting was to be iheld in the only public building ! in Sage City, the courthouse, which also contained the marshal's office and the jaiL Packard then demanded that the saloons be closed while the ; voting was in process. He was i outvoted again, five to one. He made ooe last request, that his faction be allowed three representatives at the polls. Fugger thought this over for a moment, then agreed. He did net see how he could do otherwise a* the voting had to be public and too many people would take rx>te of the feet if his adherents only were allowed to watch the ballot box. The same day, Hong Kofig Smith's fourth trail herd of the season reached Sage City. It was i also his largest, with no less than J30 of his Texas gun fighter* ac- 'companying the herd. The cowboys who had brought up his third herd were still m town. They had just about squandered their salaries, but there was a whisper of free liquor on Elec- 'tion Day and they intended to take full advantage. Hong Kong Smith rode out to his newly arrived herd, three miles from Sage City. The cowboy* whooped and ' surrounded him. "I'm • o r r y, boys," Smith announced. "I didn't expect you until tomorrow and the bank's closed lor the day. But come *B bright and early tomorrow and you'll your money . . . and free drinks the rest of the day!" A roar went up and guns banged- * * * CMITH mounted his horse and ^ prepared to ride back to Sage City. As he cleared the camp, he discovered that a cowboy was riding after him. "Mr. Smith," the man called. "I'm Dave Helm." Smith pulled up hi« horse. "You. got my message?" "I wouldn't have left Texas if I hadn't," replied Helm. He was a lean, rather handsome man in his mid-thirties, a man who minded his own business as a rule and who was let alone by the wild Texas cowboys. Smith nodded. "They doo't know much about yoo in Sage City." "You've got a sheriff here?** "Not yet. They're voting tomorrow. There's a marshal, man named Gorey." "I've heard of him.* "You're not afraid of him** "Of his gun, no. Of his badge, yes. 1 * "Gorey takes his orders from Jacob Fugger who owns Sage City!"' Helm did not comment on this. "And Jacob Fugger does what I tell him te do," Hong Kong Smith went on, with a note of importance in bis voice. "You haven't got a thing to worry about, Helm. Not a single thing." Smith slapped Helm on the back. "I'm taking your word f>r K, but I've been around a long time. That's because Tve always been carefuL" His eyes narrowed thoughtfully. "This election tomorrow . . . any chance of It going against Jacob Fugger?* Hong Kong Smith chuckled. He closed one eyt i* • taufe wink. At T a. m. Marshal Chuck Gorey hung up a sign outsidt tfc* marshal's office. On the sign was scrawled, "Vote Here." Gil Packard, Luke Miller and Lee Kinnaird came across the street. "Gonna vote bright and early,* Gorey remarked. "That's right," said Mffier calmly. They followed the marshal into his office. A wooden box stood on -Gorey's desk. Beside it was a stack of ballots. "Help yourself," said Gorey, indicating the box and the ballots. * * • "pACKARD shook his head. •*• "We'll wait until the polls are officially open," 'They're open now." "Fugger was to have three men here," said Packard. "Seems to me I did hear something about that," Gorey said. "I guess they'll be along. But if you want to vote, go ahead, nobody's stopping you. 1 * "Well wait," said Luke Miller. "If we expect to have others vote properly, well do so too.** Gorey's eyes narrowed. **Yo« three going to sit here all day?* "The city council voted to hav* three representatives of eacli slate of candidates preside over the voting." "And you fellows picked yourselves as the representatives?" "Anything wrong with that?* Miller asked. Gorey shrugged and left tb« marshal's office. Five minutes later Jacob Fugger cam* into tb* office, alone. "You fellows don't trust anyone, do you?" he groused. "You, least ol all," Mapped Luk« Miller. Jacob Fugger bared bis teeth » a wolfish grin. ''Well, well, II it isn't the mayor," he meeted. "Anyhow the man , who dream* about being mayor. But I don't think the dream will come tru*. Leastwise, not today." Miller's eyes flashed tnd h* was about to take up th* challenge, but Packard gavt him a covert signal and the newspaper publish* tvn«d Mi back OB (T* rompt DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hours: 8 a.m to 9 p.nv with Delivery to 7 pj» WOODS DRUG STORE 221 West Main 81 TV and RADIO i Minor Repairs and Tube Replacement in home i inside Bly- therille city limits) On/y More Than 20 Tears Tralninf and Experience.
