CHAPTER 12 - SHOW-DOWN

The Doc had talked since being arrested. He had given away his Indian accomplices and they were safely in gaol. Everything had worked out well, including even certain unexpected factors such as the arrival of Rocky and Bud at the shack. The boys had prevented the Doc getting away, as he might have done had they not taken a hand. He had been quicker with his gun than Bill had expected.
Quietta had been the key-factor, in death achieving more good than in life. Bill reckoned that maybe he had begun to suspect the Doc was interested in the Black Land, and possibly guessed why, which was the reason he attacked White Eagle, to discover its whereabouts.
Rocky was on his feet now, grabbing Bill's arm. " What about the Black Land ?" he demanded. " Why did the Doc want it? "
It was old man Bruce who replied. He had been saving up this surprise.
" He wanted it because there's oil underneath, son. Oil-I guess you know what it means to an owner of land when oil is struck? It means money, a whole lot of money. There's oil there all right, the Doc must have checked and double-checked. I guess he's said so now, anyway. We're goin' to be rich, Rocky."
Rocky stared, eyes wide. " Oil-oil under Indian Range land ? "
" That's right," broke in Jake. " The Indians reckon it's magic because the earth cures chest diseases. It does, because of the coal-tar seeping up, that's mighty good for the lungs.
