Rocky Adamson was the local Constable in Dayton, Nevada for over eleven years. He settled disputes like a gentleman and rarely had to make an arrest.
The scene takes place in his office, which was a small canvas tent on a skid. This could be loaded on a flat bed truck and moved from area to area where he served papers and dealt the law as it had been done for a hundred years before him.
Once Rocky retired, the county officials did away with the office of the Constable. Rocky also appears in the Redeye Express, he is the first figure on the left.
