Sheriff Bull Weyman and his pal Branch Doughty run their bordertown as they please until cowboy Larry Connell arrives and wins the sheriff's ranch at draw poker. Though Weyman uses his influence with weak Judge Hyland to have Larry declared bankrupt, the hero is determined to fight foul with fair because of his love for Hyland's daughter, Doris. The sale of his cattle is too much for Larry, however. He holds up Doughty, is arrested, and escapes--intending to blow up the sheriff's office. The villains trap Doris in the office, but Larry rescues her just before the explosion.
