Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Although he seemed for all the world to have been crushed to death in the previous episode, chapter five of The Vigilantes are Coming reveals that Salvation (Guinn "Big Boy" Williams), fully living up to his name, managed to extricate Don Loring (Robert Livingston) well before the ore crusher could do any damage whatsoever. Whipsaw (Raymond Hatton, meanwhile, learns that the megalomaniacal Burr (Fred Kohler) is scheming to trap the Vigilantes by having the traitorous Peters (Tracy Layne) impersonate "The Eagle." As a counter measure, Don, aka "The Eagle," disguises himself as Peters, a masquerade that causes Petroff (Robert Kortman) and his Cossacks to shoot and kill the wrong man. Learning from their mistake, the Cossacks take off after the real "Eagle," who in the conclusion of the chapter is forced over a steep cliff.
