Posing as a school teacher, Sandy gains the confidence of the townsfolk and with Judge Darcy and his daughter, Alice, proceeds with the details of the election. Keene gets word of Gunnerson's death and plans to eliminate Nevada. The latter, aware of Keene's plan, beats Keene to the draw and then helps to bring in the deciding votes form Northford.
