James Earp to the rescue??
Fri Apr 23, 4:22

I might as well divulge my findings about Jimmy's propensity for "flourishing" a pistol to fit the occasion. There are four, but now I am wondering about a potential fifth at Wichita. Researcher Bartholomew had found Case # 102 - an unknown indictment against James Earp, dating to August 1874. The entry was first marked "unpaid" in ink, then the word "not" was crossed out in pencil. Surely this must have been compliments Wyatt/Clerk Fred Schattner tampering with the files.
So much was not put in the newspaper. I had to query whether this related to the time in '74 when Justice Jewitt fined the Clements gang over a thousand dollars, and that Jim was gatheed in during all the arrests.
