Storyline

A local man and a friend of Murphy has a daughter he cannot control. At his wits end, Emmas father brings her to Gold Hill. She proves to be a bad influence on the Gold Hill kids, but trouble really comes when Emma falls in love with Murphy. She figures that if she gets Gold Hill closed down, Murphy will have to go off with her, so she tells Rodman of Murphy's secret. This creates a crisis and it looks like Rodman will finally have his way and have the kids transfered to the Claymore work camp. Meanwhile Fr. Parker continues to be blocked by Garrett in purchasing a building for a church. Written by dtwiddo@yahoo
