"The President Must Die"

Code Of The Silver Sage finds Allan Lane on detached duty from the US
Army. He's part of security for a visit to Arizona Territory by the
President of the USA. The President is there in response to a plea from
the editor of a local newspaper to do something about the outlaws
rampaging throughout the area. The editor is shot for his troubles and
his niece Kay Christopher has taken over the paper.
The mysterious figure behind the outlaws is Roy Barcroft who is a gun
dealer and who has a touch of megalomania in him. He's got ambitions to
no less set himself up as dictator of Arizona and conceives of a plan
to assassinate POTUS to tell the world that Arizona is his turf.
We're never told which president he has in mind to shoot, but President
Chester A. Arthur made a western trip during his term. Arizona was not
on the itinerary though.
Barcroft is a real treat though, this and Mr. Logan on the Spin And
Marty series for the Mickey Mouse Club might be his career roles.
