Hoppy and Lucky agree to help California go after the killers. When they arrive in Rimrock, the scene of the shooting, the mine still has not been found. A young woman, who also turns out to be a distant relative of California, is told by her friend, Ace Gibson, that Hoppy is one of the bandits and Hoppy is thrown off the ranch.
