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

Goofs

Just prior to Murphy asking the shopkeeper about the addition to his sign, he waves goodbye to Father Parker. Notice there is no flagpole anywhere in sight. During closeups after that with the shopkeeper, there is a flagpole and flag right off his right shoulder. It is too close to be missed on the wide angle. Then when he pulls away there is no flag.
