Didn't the prosecutor Lyttleton Price say in the newspaper he had talked with the Witnesses about Doc's involvement in the stage attack and found them not credible at all. Did he not then refuse to prosecute the case against Doc because of the lack of value in what the witnesses had to say?

Wouldn't the money from a "citizens committee" be effective enough in getting Sippy to leave as intimidation? Why use intimidation if you can do it with money and avois the possibility of criminal charges?

Is not the city council elected by the citizens? Thus a citizens committee would be an organization of voters attempting to get elected officials to pay attention to what they wanted or lose their votes. Powerful effect on politicians. No?

Did Kate leave after or before the charges against Doc were dismissed? If after she was not very intimidated?

Did not both newspapers dismiss Kate's credibility due to drinking?
