Partner: It's Sylvester Newel. Yeah, just one 'l'.

When the group is discussing buying one of the Mormon's wives Tabor who is against the purchase of her for a wife declares that she is a married woman and Holbrook states "No she isn't! We don't recognize plural marriages in California!". But they do later when Mrs. Rumson comes up with the idea to marry pardner too. However, it was earlier stated in the film that Elizabeth is married to Ben Rumson through the governing of mining law, which also covers the point that mining partners get equal share of what is recognized by mining law as their claim. The Rumsons and Pardner use the latter fact as a loophole to justify the plural marriage.
