Wendell McWherter buys one of Edison's generators so his bank can have electric power - and light - twenty-four hours a day. Soon other Bordertown businessmen want their buildings wired for light and it appears candles and oil lamps will soon be only an unpleasant memory. Clive is convinced that Edison's invention will reduce crime in their town, but Jack isn't show sure. When McWherter's bank is robbed in spite of his new precautions, Jack's fears appear to have come true. Written by
Did You Know?
Did you see my bank, Marshal? I can see a ghost move inside there, let alone a thief!
Marshal Jack Craddock
Unless you sit up all night watchin' you won't see nothin'. You might as well have painted arrows, "This way to the money, folks!"
Corporal Clive Bennett
Jack, you know what the problem with you is? You lack vision. If the whole town was lit up like his bank, it would go a long way towards preventing crime.
