Because of the number of men in mining towns, many business-people
decided to take advantage of that to make themselves some money, very soon, mining towns no longer contained just a bank,
a church, and a general store, but brothels, gambling houses, saloons, and liquor stores.
Violence was common, as there was no set law, just the law of lynching. The only law
was: do not kill an unarmed man......this was considered murder, everything else could be classified as self-defence
