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
