In one of the all time most preposterous solutions to a "cliffhanger" peril, chapter six of The Vigilantes are Coming reveals that rather than plunging to his death, "The Eagle" (Robert Livingston) calmly dismounts and smartly steps down to a lower ledge on the cliff, thus completely avoiding the marauding Cossacks. Re-grouping, "The Eagle," aka Don Loring, learns from one of Doris Colton's (Kay Hughes) homing pigeons that Burr (Fred Kohler) and Raspinoff (Robert Warwick) plan to wipe out the Vigilantes by using a brand new cannon and a wagonload of fresh ammunition. But when Don boards the wagon, he finds himself confronted by Petroff (Robert Kortman), who summarily knocks him out. As chapter six reaches its conclusion, the powder-laden wagon containing the unconscious "Eagle" rolls down an embankment and explodes.
