The padded plot, so exhibitors could tell the entries apart, finds Towash, Texas saloon owner Hank Gunther (Harold Goodwin) plotting with Jesse Allen (Minor Watson), Joan's father, to rob the money missed on the aborted stage holdup from the express company safe rather than report empty-handed to the "Boss"(Stanley Fields).

The latter has convinced her father to return the money and they will go to Arizona. Cisco, also seen that day with Joan, gets blamed for the robbery as Gunther has killed ol' Mose who is no longer around to identify Cisco as not being the robber, and Joan is not willing to implicate her father.
