Based on a tip from a Texas Ranger, Earp and Bat track Rupe Prentice to the ranch of horse rustler Crump Elliott and his daughter Blanche who is in love with Rupe. Earp decides to play it more carefully this time. He and Bat round up Crump's hands one by one to eliminate any help they might provide Rupe. Earp catches Blanche going to town for a doctor to tend to Rupe's injured leg but he lets her go saying he wants Rupe alive. One of the men they capture tells Earp and Bat where Crump keeps the stolen horses. They are able to capture Crump and three of his men there. Earp stops Blanche returning with the doctor to tell her he has her father. She can trade Rupe for her father but she refuses. Her refusal forces Earp to invade the ranch buildings to look for Rupe with Bat providing backup. Bat has no trust in Blanche but Earp has little choice. In the end Young Wolf learns Earp kept most of his promise to Young Wolf and Mr. Cousin. Written by
