Robbed by Dirty Dingus Magee, Hoke Birdsill travels to Yerkey's Hole and demands justice from Belle Kops, the town's mayor and madam. In response, the indifferent Belle appoints him sheriff. Although Birdsill repeatedly captures Magee, the bandit, assisted by his Indian mistress Anna Hotwater, escapes as often. Discovering a strongbox Magee has accidentally acquired, Birdsill steals its contents. Diverting the town by announcing a proposed gunfight with his dupe, Magee rifles Belle's bedroom. To his consternation, however, Magee discovers that Birdsill has preceded him. Appointed sheriff in Birdsill's stead, Magee searches for his fellow thief. Reunited, the two join forces and burn Belle's brothel to the ground.
