  • Episode Description
  • An old friend of Judge Garth named Charlie Ryan (Leif Erickson) revives the low grade silver Gloria Mine with help from his mining college-trained son Craig (Peter Brown) and a new partner Whit Parsons (Whit Bissell). They fall behind in their payments and may not make quotas specified in their contracts. A desperate Craig begins to alienate the locals including Judge Garth with his tactics to save the mine operations. Things come to a head when local cattle begin to die and contaminated mine water is suspected. This leads to conflict not only between the local ranchers and miners but eventually to conflict between Charlie, his son, and especially their business partner, Whit, who seemingly will stop at nothing to make the mine a success.moreless

    • Randy and Betsy practice a song together in this episode which they are to deliver at a church social. It is implied Randy is nervous as he has never performed in public with Betsy before. However, this is in error as the earlier, second episode of Season 3 called "Dark Challenge" had them playing together at a dance.

    • Semi-regular characters Barney (Roy Engel) and Mrs. Wingate (Audrey Swanson) appear in this episode and it is shown they have two young daughters. They also have a somewhat older daughter as revealed in the earlier season 3 episode: "The Stallion".

    • Trampas does not appear in this episode and the appearances by The Virginian and Emmett Ryker are no more than cameos.
