Young Bill Hickok

Your ship's late, Tower.

We had storms at sea. That's a very | unfriendly ocean for them.

Well, this land isn't exactly on speaking terms either.

Well, perhaps you've found someone | who will listen to reason.

- I've got just the man. | - Is he amenable?

He's meaner than all get-out.

Your description intrigues me. | I'm anxious to meet him.

Put it back and move your queen, senator.

Oh, yes. Yes. Thanks.

What do ya say that fella's name was again?

Tower. Nicolas Tower.

He's a foreigner, ain't he?

Yeah.

Well, I'm sick o' waitin'.

That's a black deuce.

Oh, yes.

Yes, of course.

He'll be here, if something doesn't happen.

Lad, you better stay here and watch, | just in case.

Gentlemen, this is Nicolas Tower.

Mr. Tower, this is Senator Tucker, | of the state legislature.

It's a great honor to know you, sir.

It is I who am honored, senator.

And this is Morell.

Hi.

Philip has been telling me about you, Mr. Morell.

He thinks you are just the man we need.

Well, if you're satisfied, I reckon I am.

So's all we gotta do is come to terms.

I already know what I'm supposed to do.

Yes, we've gone over the ground | pretty thoroughly with Morell.

Still, our plans must be definite and | thoroughly understood by all of us.

Remember, I just arrived in America.

Oh, yes, yes. Of course, sir.

After all, we're depending on you to lead us in whatever we do.

Thank you, senator.

And I assure you that all who wade into this | great adventure will be amply rewarded...

... when we have succeeded in bringing | order out of, let us say, your democratic chaos.

I don't cower to your fancy language, Tower. | Now let's talk plain.

We're all in this together.

If this country busts up, your government's | figurin' on pickin' up some of the pieces.

California in particular, ain't that it?

Putting it rather bluntly, yes.

We're all out to feather our own nests, only | it ain't feathers we're after. It's gold.

You're hirin' my guns and the guns o' men like me | to cut all lines o' communication from the coast east.

That's my job as I savvy it.

If I'm wrong, say so.

Your understanding is excellent, my friend.

I think we will go far together.

That's more like it.

Now here's what I got in mind.

We'll operate outta Hayes City.

Overland Stage Trail passes through | here goin' east and west.

Across the mountains and through the Indian country.

I'll have a pow-wow with old chief Red Wolf.

I wonder what Tea Kettle's fannin' the wind fer.

Can't be nothin' else but trouble, Uncle Gabby.

Oh, there ya go, always calamity-howlin'.

We shoulda christened you Calamity Jane in the first place.

What's wrong, Tea Kettle?

Big fight at Relay Station.

Hostile Indians?

No. White men.

How many?

Sounds like Raiders.

What in tarnation we sittin' here then fer?

We'd be ridin' right smackdab into trouble.

Well, we've rid right smackdab into trouble before, ain't we?

You stay here with the horses. Me and the Injuns'll go.

Oh, ya ain't leavin' me here alone chaperonin' no broncs.

Little Fox, you stay with the horses. | Big Bear, you come with us.

Look!

He's killed two o' the gang and winned five | of 'em. They've left. Let's get outta here.

Looks like it was pretty good fight while it lasted.

There's one that needs help.

Whoa, whoa, here. Take it easy, son.

You're pretty well used-up.

Did they get the horses?

You mean your relay critters?

No, they didn't.

What do ya know about that?

The poor glute ain't got a pint o' blood | left and he's worried about a buncha Cayooses.

If I ain't mistaken, them was Morrell's Raiders.

You didn't drive 'em off by yourself, did ye?
