Bat's old friend Luke Short offers him 50% of the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City, Kansas if he'll help make the place profitable. Bat hires a pretty piano player Dolly McGregor from St. Louis and business picks up, much to the chagrin of owners of rival establishments. The mayor, one of these saloon proprietors, helps enact a new city ordinance forbidding the playing of musical instruments in saloons. After he hires Bat's piano player, the mayor has the ordinance repealed. Bat visits the Governor to get his cooperation by not interfering in Dodge City matters. Bat counters the crooked politician with the "Dodge City Peace Commission," a group of gunslingers led by Wyatt Earp, to force the mayor to come to terms. Written by David Bassler
