advertisement Dan Hammond: She's the Black Whip! Henchman Baxter: She couldn't be! The Black Whip has got to be a man! He's out-shot us, out-rode us, and out-fought us. He's stopped us at every turn! Dan Hammond: Looting, arson, murder - it's going on all over this territory. Immigrants crossing our borders are being attacked and slaughtered. My stages are beind held up almost every run. No man's life or property is safe and not a hand is being raised to put a stop to it! Randolph Meredith [Ch.1]: It can't be stopped - as long as we have no organized law enforcement in this territory. That's why my paper has been hammering on the benefit that statehood would bring us. Marshal Wetherby: Well, that's our answer. I'm marshal here, but my authority ends at the edge of town. There's no one to fight the outlaws outside the township unless he's got nerve enough to do it on his own hook - like the Black Whip! Mr. Walsh [Chs.1-3,10-12]: The outlaws went to far when they stole federal funds from my bank. I telegraphed Washington and there's a federal commissioner on his way to take charge of things until we hold the statehood election. Vic Gordon: Glad to know you, Zeke. Zeke Hayden [Chs. 6-7]: That makes it unanimous! Henchman Baxter: It ain't so easy to stop a gold rush.
