Apparently there was no lawman to uphold the peace and order in the town of Poker Flat, so a “secret committee had determined to rid the town of all improper persons.” Because of a recent rash of theft (and possibly murder), this committee took action by hanging two of the more serious violators; for the less serious objectionable characters, the committee chose to banish them from the town. Such was the case of the gambler, John Oakhurst; two ladies whose “impropriety was professional;” and the ne’er-do-well, Uncle Billy. They were escorted to the edge of town and sent on their way.
