West and Gordon arrive in the town of Brimstone to meet with Professor Philip Colecrest. They are unaware that a gang led by Zack Morton has captured the professor and is torturing him for information. Morton attempts to capture the agents as well and everyone ends up in the old mine shafts below town. West and Gordon elude Morton, then find Colecrest, who has escaped his captors but been injured in the process. Gordon goes for a doctor and the end result is that Brimstone's tunnels are ''full'' of people - the agents, the doctor, the doctor's daughter (who comes after him), the gang, the professor, and, on top of it all Captain Butler, a mysterious old man who haunts the shafts like a ghost...

* UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar: Butler thinks it's still going on, which is why he's guarded the MacGuffin all these years. Artie gets him to finally stand down by posing as Robert E. Lee and relieving him of his duty. In the epilog, Artie explains that Butler also possessed a battle plan that, if it had been implemented, would have led to the Confederacy winning the war.



* EvilWearsBlack: Mr. Roach, Morton's [[{{Sadist}} sadistic]] enforcer, wears an all-black outfit.
* FailedASpotCheck: InvertedTrope. When Morton pretends to be Colecrest, he asks Jim and Artie to give their regards to his wife, and the two heroes (who are already suspicious of him) play along. However, Colecrest is a bachelor. Since Morton realizes that two federal agents would be aware of that, he realizes that West and Gordon are on to him.

Dooley goes after him to bring him the medicine and rides into Brimstone. When she's greeted by Morton and his gang, she doesn't realize they're criminals and tells them everything that's going on--allowing them to take her hostage.

* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Captain Butler has been living in the mines since before the Battle of Five Forks. He had a companion for awhile, but the companion died so long ago that the only thing left of him is a skeleton wearing a Confederate uniform. He's insane now (though, all things considered, the amount of sanity he's managed to retain in spite of everything is rather impressive).
* ShellShockedVeteran: It's made very clear that Captain Butler will never recover from what the years of isolation did to him.
