They attempt to form an Indian Police Force with government backing, and draw up a petition, appealing to Congress for the authorization to enable the Indians to fight the outlaws on their own ground. After an attempt by Carson and Ceta to kill Blue Feather fails, Sterling, wearing an Indian face-mask, disguise himself as a Phantom Rider in order to wage a vigilante war against the outlaws.- Written by Les Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org>
