He did leave the money in the town so the Mexican government could retrieve it correct?

Why would Silvanito say "you don't want to be here when they get it eh?"

What does Joe have to fear from the mexican Government if he left the money behind?

Would he be under suspicion for something? He could just pose as a lone stranger who drifted into town long after the Rojos and the Baxters were eliminated.

"When a man has money in his pocket he learns to accept peace."

He had earned money from the town, was suspicious of being a part of the whole thing, and I don't think the governments take any slack like the Rojos and Baxters did. You saw the people bringing out gold before, right? They would've shot him the second time. So Joe probably figured, I got this money and I shouldn't be around otherwise I could be detained for who knows what. That's the philosphocial way to look at it, the obvious one is because the damn movie is over and Joe has to move on Tongue

You never quite know how much money he has left. I always assumed he left the town without a fistful of dollars because he gave it all to Maria and family.
