Uncle Dan Gets a Pardon

Record #:
After newly elected Governor Russel removes the head of the Railroad Commission from office, he sends the Keeper of Public Buildings and Grounds, “Uncle Dan” Terry to secure the offices of the Commission. When Dan finds that the commissioner is still there and refuses to leave, the Governor hands him a pistol and orders Dan to shot him out. Dan refuses even when Russel offers to pardon him.
