Billy rides to Gunsight to collect money for cattle delivered to the ranch of Judge Roy A. Barlow. Barlow fancies himself 'The Law North of Lincoln' and throws Billy in jail for being drunk in disorderly immediately after taking possession of the bill of sale and stealing Billy's bankroll. Garrett comes searching for Billy and learns from the town drunk that Judge Barlow murdered the surveyor who discovered that Gunsight is actually within the Lincoln County limits and, as a result, within the sheriff's jurisdiction.
