While Earp is loading his cartridges with copper jacked bullets which do less damage, saloon hostess Melinda Carey confides to Earp that Dick Bennett cheated young southerner Billy Joe Omahadro out of $8500 with his crooked games. Billy Joe is threatening to kill Bennett. Earp gathers some additional funds from southerners who hate Bennett which he marks and gives to Billy Joe to trap Bennett cheating. The plan works such that Earp recovers all of the lost money for the men and Billy Joe. Billy Joe is returning home but he wants to thank Melinda and possibly marry her. Against Earp's suggestion he visits Melinda to say goodbye with a promise to return. Bennett determines Melinda informed on him so he confronts her. He fires her and tells her he will ruin her plans with Billy Joe by telling what she does for a living. She pulls a gun and shots Bennett in the back after he leaves.
