Cheyenne is to meet Indian Agent Ab Carter and Johnny Crow at Johnny's camp. They are to discuss a trip by the two men to Washington D.C. to save the buffalo. While the two await Cheyenne, a buffalo herd is stampeded through the camp killing everyone but Ab and Johnny. The man behind the stampede, Walt Taylor, rides into the camp. Noticing Ab alive he shoots him as Johnny watches and then plays dead. Cheyenne rides up before the bodies can be buried. He finds Johnny alive and Ab shot. He takes Johnny to a doctor who says Johnny will survive but be crippled. He talks to Judge Kinkaid who introduces him to State Senator John Tom Matson. When Cheyenne asks Matson to help him continue Ab and Johnny's desire, Matson suggests Cheyenne take a vacant seat in the state senate due to a death. The naive Cheyenne accepts the offer in what becomes a western version of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". Cheyenne is better at gun fighting than politics. Written by Anonymous
