He was running a grocery store over in Arkansa*. Like I said, I stayed down in Texas. Wouldn't be here now if old Hong Kong hadn't sent for me. Somebody's been giving a friend of his some trouble. . . ." He stopped, his eyes narrowing. "You live here, Wes?" "I've been her for a little while." A perplexed frown settled ;upon Helm's features. "They i know who you are?" ' "No. Tve used a different name since '67." ' "The name wouldn't be . . Bailey?" Tancred nodded. "I should have known!** exclaimed Helm. "Smith said you'd killed three men with just three bullets at a place near here . . ." Then he suddenly winced. "But you're not wearing a gun." "I never carry one," said Tancred evenly. "I work as a printer." "Yeah, sure, I'd forgotten." He grinned. "Nobody would suspect that Wes Tancred was a printer." He looked thoughtfully at Tancred. "By now you've guessed why Smith brought me up here?" "Me?" Helm nodded. "Funny, isn't ; it?" • "Tuffger's already brought in Eric Stratemeyer." H^InT whistled. "I've heard of him, even down in Texas." "And there's a Texas man named Manny Harpending." "Not in your class'." "Neither Harpending nor Stratemeyer—nor you, Dave— will make me take up a gun. I By Frank Graber glad to hear that. I—I'd hate to think of facing you across a gun. And I don't mean that just be- to be good know that, cause you happen with a gun. You Wes." "I know it" "It's because at . . well, the past, Wes." He hesitated and the frown came again to his face. "I never came in, Wes. I'm wanted in Missouri and—yes, in Kansas, too. Tm only safe in Texas and I'm not safe there if Hong Kong Smith is against me." "So you'll take your orders from Smith?" "I've got to." Tancred picked up the reins of his mount "Goodby, Dave." Tancred found Luke Miller standing outside the courthouse. The editor came out into the street and talked to him. "Fred Kraft and Walter Combs got in a few minutes ago. They said some people were coming in.* "I talked to a few and got some promises," Tancred said. "But where are they?" Miller exclaimed. "Only two farmers have come in to vote. We're still behind at least 35 votes." "There's still two hours." Miller said wearily:' "Take stable, then come and vote. We need that vote, and may as well have it." '.'But the thre* men at that stage station here ... or was that poppycock?" "That was . . . one of those things. It won't happen again." * * * haven't carried one time of Sarn Older." tinct the /pANCRED rode his mount to •*• the livery stable and received a black look from the attendant. "You'd never hive got this horse if I'd known whit you wfcrt going to use it for.* "It's a good horse," said Tancred. "If jou wert goinf to sell it, what would you ask lor it? "Mor* Dave Helm showed r«lie/. "I'm jjjot" money than you-vt afeoul W« TM- cred's manner caused the man to hesitate. Then he said: "What do you want to buy a horse for?" "Because I like this horse.** "Do you like it a hundred dollars' worth?" "I might." ' At the Texas Saloon he found a place at the far end of the bar, near Lily's office, and ordered a glass of beer. He noted that the office door was partially opened and carrying his beer he went to it He knocked. "Yes?" called Lily from inside. "John Bailey." There was a pause, then she opened the door. "Come in." He went in and she closed the door. "Have you performed your civic duty of voting?" she asked, "Isn't tha^, what Hong Kong Smith called it?" "I wasn't there, but I heard that he voted—along with 60- some Texas men." "It didn't surprise you that Jacob Fugger had an ace up his sleeve?!' "He's got a packful of aces," Tancred said. "Including one that he doesn't know about yet." » * * * T ILY looked at him in mock surprise. "Well! You, you actually said something that I didn't have to pull out of you." "That bothers you." "All right, all right," she said, forcing the usual note of asperity into her tone. "I'll put on a new face and go out there and sing for the boys." "What are you going to sing, Lily?" Tancred asked, dully. In the act of turning away from him she whirled and stared at him. "John," she said, slowly, "there's something on your mind —something you want to tell me." "I think you know." "I've seen your face while I sang it and I ... I've been thinking about you. The Turkey Crossing affair . . . your marksmanship against Wild Bill Hickok." "Yes," he said, "I'm Wes Tan* cred."
