Butterfield's former girlfriend, Selah Jennison, works at Fort Kenton doing laundry. She refuses to help Mac, even when he offers a $500 reward. Butterfield had been there for her after the death of her husband, so she remains loyal to him.

A freight driver, Johnny Bishop, could be the man Mac is looking for, but kindly sheriff Buck Weston warns him that Bishop is one of the most well-liked men in town. Selah comes to warn the married and respectable Bishop, who swears that he merely watched the outlaws' horses, not knowing they were pulling a holdup.

After Bovard persuades Bishop to surrender, Selah mocks the marshal, calling him "hangman" and claiming he is not interested in the truth. Bovard, however, wants to quit being a lawman and go west to become a lawyer instead. Bishop breaks out of jail, but Mac lets him go. Buck wants to marry Selah, but she is beholden now to Mac.
