Dal, the son of a rich rancher, is abrasive and abusive but cowardly when confronted, having always relied on his father's wealth and influence to get him out of difficulty. When up to his usual tricks, he gets one of the ranch hands fired. The fired man takes up with a saloon girl whom Miss Kitty hired after her father was murdered. Dal takes a fancy to the girl, tries to shoot his rival, and instead shoots and kills the girl. Chester witnesses it all, and goes with Matt to Dal's ranch to arrest him. Dal's father is in disbelief, but Dal is hardly worried, confident his father will get him out of this scrape as he has all others. After he is convicted, he slowly begins to fear he will hang. While his father works to save him from the hangman, he is disgusted with his son's display of fear, sure that if he were the one facing the rope, he'd go to the gallows "with a smile."- Written by Morganalee
