Synopsis for "Shootout in the Silver Mine!"

The Two-Gun Kid is heading to Silver Town when he is ambushed by some men waiting outside town limits, they tell the stranger to leave town. When the Kid tells them he has business in town they laugh at him, but the Kid begins shooting easily destroying their weapons. As he continues on his way he is warned that their employer Boss Torbull will not like to hear what he did.

In town, the Two-Gun Kid meets up with Sue Lester who was the one who wrote to him asking for aid. She tells him that her husband Ned was injured in a cave in at the local mine and that he is laid up in bed for the next few weeks. When the Kid asks what he can do to help, Sue suddenly clams up when Boss Torbull arrives to talk to the Two-Gun Kid. Torbull tells the Kid he does not like strangers in his town and strikes the Kid down. He then orders his men to take the Kid's guns and force him to work in the mine. Unarmed, the Two-Gun Kid is forced to agree without a means to defeat himself.

When Torbull leaves, Sue tells the Kid that her husband was forced into working in the mine like everyone else in town when they were driven into debt and were forced to work there to pay it off, and worse, Boss Torbull does not pay to upkeep the mine leading to the injuries to the minors, however without proof they cannot put him in jail. The Two-Gun Kid promises to get Sue the proof she needs.

The next morning the Two-Gun Kid reports for work at the mine and he is forced to go down without a head lamp. When he is told that there are lanterns down below, the Kid points out that if there is gas down in the mine it could cause an explosion, but is forced into the mine anyway. Down in the mine, the Kid also notices that the supports are cracked and rotting.
