While having dinner with Chester Miller in a restaurant, Josh shows him a gold nugget. He convinces Miller to ride with him to his mine as a potential investor. While on the road, they come to a sign indicating they are entering Pot Hole County. When Miller balks, Josh pulls a poster from his hat showing Miller is really Penfold Crane wanted for murder in Pot Hole with a reward of $200. Crane tries to tell Josh there is no justice in Pot Hole but Josh won't listen saying he has never been there. At Pot Hole he turns Crane over to Chute Wilson who owns the saloon, is the sheriff, prosecutor, and judge. Josh collects his reward but when Wilson tells his men to gather a crowd for an immediate trial, Josh decides to stay and watch. Chute is more interested in everyone buying drinks than the trial but under prodding finally starts it after Father Miguel tries to stop it. As the trial get under way, Josh tries to speak up when he realizes it is far from a proper trial but loses his $200 ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Josh Randall: [after Miller tries unsuccessfully to bribe Randall into letting him go] It may be hard for you to understand, but when it comes to justice, I favor the law.
Chester Miller aka Penfold Crane: Justice? Why, you money-grubbin' gunslinger! What do you know about justice?
Josh Randall: Well, I seem to do some good here n' there. Take care of men who thieve and bully, raise holy terror with innocent folk. Like this Curley Pettingill that you shot.
Chester Miller aka Penfold Crane: I didn't shoot him!
Josh Randall: Well, I think that's up to the people of Pot Hole to decide.
