EXT. MAIN STREET – TURLEY – DAY
A tall gallows is being constructed in the middle of an intersection. Emmett and Paden look it over as they ride
past. Two workmen pause in their labors and look them over.
EXT. SALOON/HOTEL – TURLEY – DAY
This is the busy part of town. Amidst the street traffic and pedestrians sits a wagon with three Settler men, who watch
Emmett and Paden’s arrival with enormous interest. As the two travelers hitch their horses in front of the saloon, the

Emmett and Paden exchange looks.
I’ve got my people sitting down there… (indicates end of street) …throwing snowballs and raring to go!
I’m afraid it is a bad start, friend, ’cause my name isn’t Baxter, and he ain’t Hawley.
You’re not Baxter?
My name is Emmett.
And you’re not Baxter, either?
No, I’m not Hawley.
