A gambling czar, fleeing from New Orleans, stops at the McCain ranch with his following of bodyguards, henchmen and gamblers and decides to take the ranch off of Lucas’s hands.
From "The Rifleman Episode Guide List"
When Tiffauges was driven out of the Big Easy, it may have been Yancy Derringer who was the driving force.....
Yancy Derringer is an American Western series that ran on CBS from 1958 to 1959, with Jock Mahoney (1919–1989) in the title role. It was produced by Derringer Productions and filmed in Hollywood by Desilu Productions. Derringer Productions consisted of half interest for Warren Lewis and Don Sharpe as executive producers, and a quarter interest to Jock Mahoney for starring in the series, and a quarter interest to Richard Sale and Mary Loos, husband and wife, as creators.

So Yancy Derringer's involvement in the background to this episode would have occurred twenty years after the events of his own series, even though the two shows aired at the same time......
Not that it means anything in the grand scheme of things, but "Tiffauges" is one of my favorite names to come out of the series. Perhaps out of TV Westerns as a whole. "Major Glenn Vanscoy" is another, from 'Gunsmoke'. (I'm a big fan of the aptness of names.)
