- ―Edgar Kalou
The owner of Nunn Bush Shoes and the boss of Clovis Galletta. Gage was an anti-Semite, he openly expressed his hatred for Jews and developed an intense and hostile enmity with jewelry store owner and Jew, Edgar Kalou. Furthermore, Gage was a member of the Chamber of Commerce, he used his position to reject all of Kalou's business propositions to effectively slander and ruin his business.
One afternoon, Gage caught Galletta browsing through Hartfield's Jewelry Store and discovered that she brought a set of pearl earrings there. Gage was enraged by this, telling Galletta to return to work and proceeded to insult Kalou and his store, calling his items "nickel plated" and "made in Japan". Gage walked Galletta back to the shoe store, taking her installment voucher for the earrings. However, Gage had finally pushed Kalou too far. Kalou followed Gage and Galletta back to the store and Gage was shot five times in the back in broad daylight. He fell to the ground and died instantly. Kalou threw the gun into a nearby trash bin, and walked back to his store.
