Curly Bill Brocius and Johnny Ringo are fighting over a horse Brocius shot that belonged to Ringo. Although Brocius has replaced the horse, there is still a grudge over circumstances. Brocius and Ringo are in Tombstone with their primary sidekicks Larkin and Irish Gibbons who are egging the two toward a gunfight. The news of the fight has spread with Doc taking bets on the outcome. Interestingly both the legal and illegal element want to see the fight stopped. Law and order types don't want a fight while the outlaw Old Man Clanton doesn't want to lose two good men. When two equal gunfighters clash usually neither comes out alive. Emma Clanton and Old Man Clanton both talk to Earp with Old Man Clanton complaining to Judge Spicer as well. Conviently Sheriff Behan is out of town. Spicer suggest Earp find some way to arrest the two men. Earp and Shotgun make the arrests upsetting Doc but it doesn't resolve the matter. Written by Anonymous
