He was followed a few minutes later by Morgan Holt, the hardware man, and Cece Tobin, who ran the feed and produce business in town, one of Fugger's enterprises. Fugger whispered to them a moment or two, then took his departure. "We're ready when you are," Tobin announced. "Good," said Packard. "I suggest we do this with as little argument as possible. As - each voter comes in he writes down his name, sw we can check on possible repeaters.'* -What if he can't write?" •eked McCoy. "If a man cant write he can't w>te," snapped Packard. "Whoa!" cried Morgan Holt. "You can't discriminate against a man just because he can't write his own name. Besides he don't have to write to vote. All he's got to do is put a cross before a candidate's name." Packard looked inquiringly at Miller. The latter nodded. "All right," conceded Packard. •"We'll write down their names, then." "Then let's vote," snapped McCoy. He took up a ballot and made a few quick marks. Then he folded the ballot and dropped it into the slot of the ballot box. The others marked their own ballots and dropped them into the box. A couple of the businessmen of the town came in during the next few minutes and cast their ballots, and at 8 o'clock there was actually a small line waiting to mark their ballots. The frown that had appeared on Miller's face when t came to the voting place, pearcd as he saw friends in the lino. It was quite evident that Fuggcr was not. going to intimidate many voters. Miller remembered *b** h ** ^newspaper had announced that the polls would be open from 8 o'clock in the morning until 6 in the evening. A steady stream of people came in and about 9 o'clock Miller, hastily checking the record book, estimated that a hundred people had voted in the first hour. A few minutes after 9 o'clock South Street exploded. Hong Kong Smith's men rode into town in a body and whooped and yelled in front of the bank where Smith was getting the money to pay them. There was more whooping and shooting when the crew went into the McCoy's Saloon to receive their money. Toe the next half hour there was only an occasional burst of noise as a cowboy spewed out of the saloon, but then there was a sudden rattle of gunfire and Packard, looking out of the window, suddenly gasped. "They're coming here!" Luke Miller left the ballot box and stepped to the window. A swarm of Texas men, led by Hong Kong Smith, was charging toward the jail. * * * TEE KINNAIRD stepped •^ through the door and found Chuck Gorey already there. Luke Miller came out behind him. "Gonna fulfill our civic duty," Hong Kong Smith boomed. "You can't vote!" snapped Luke Miller. "Who says we can't?" cried Hong Kong Smith. He turned to his cowboys. "He says we can't vote!" A half dozen guns were discharged into the air and were scarcely heard above the roar of the men. They surged forward, p u s h i n.g Hong Kong Smith Miller. Kinnaird put his hand on Smith's chest "Don't crowd me. Smith," Kinnaird muttered, icily. Smith's tongue came out arid licked his lips. "I got as much right to vote as anybody." He appealed to Chuck Gorey. "Ain't that right, Marshal?" Gorey shot a quick look at Lee Kinnaird, "Seems I got nothin' to say about it," replied Gorey. "They got a committee of six to say who votes and who don't." He gestured to the group of poll officials, all of whom had come out by now. "Ask them." "We're asking," said Smith. "As far as I'm concerned yon vote," growled McCoy, the sa- loonman. He was immediately seconded by Holt and Tobin. "And we say you don't," declared Luke Miller, indicating Packard" and Kinnaird. "Only legitimate residents of Sage City and Sage County can vote." "What's a legitimate resident?" sneered Hong Kong Smith. 'Teople who live here,* "How long?" * * * TI/TILLER scowled. The ques- ^'•*- tion had • never come up. In frontier towns everybody voted, even though they may have arrived only the day before. "The intent of the law," Miller said, harshly, "is that people vote who have a permanent interest in a community. The length of time they have lived in a place isn't too important The point is the voter must b* a legitimate settler." "We're settlers," howled Hong Kong Smith. "We're all settlers here, ain't we, boys?" His men roared in the affirmative. Again there was a forward surge and the committee of six was forced back to the door of the marshal's office. Then Jacob Fugger came through the crowd- He was followed by Horace Van. Meter. "We can hold a council meeting right here, Miller," he said, as he came forward. He pointed to his members on the voting committee. "You're all councilmen. All right, do we let these settlers vote, or do we not?" Miller capitulated. "Save your breath." Sixty-two Texas men voted in the »*xt half hour. THE REAL MCCOYS By BILL WALKER <W)» m THET FELLEf? SHOULD dlTHISSELF A FIRE INSURANCE" POLIC/ WITH W. L. WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Glenco Bldf.
