Simon Kane offers a British sailor a ride in his stagecoach when he spots him standing forlornly by the side of the road. The sailor tells Simon he jumped ship in San Francisco and a band of men have been chasing him ever since. The five men, all federal marshals, surround Simon's stagecoach and tell him that his newest passenger fled a ship that contained bubonic plague and they were authorized to kill everyone the Britisher came in contact with to prevent the diseases spread.

Did You Know?
[When Simon sees a man standing beside the road, he brings his stagecoach to a stop
You shouldn't have stopped.
Out here when a man doesn't have a horse under him, he's likely to be lookin' for a ride when he can get one.
You don't even know who he is! Why, he could be a gunman, an outlaw or anything!
When you put it that way, Mister, I don't happen to know who you are, either.
