Brief Synopsis

Wild Bill Jones (Fuzzy Knight) is saved from three toughs by "Silver Jim" Donovan (Johnny Mack Brown), a newcomer to Winchester. They team up to campaign for Thad Morgan (William Farnum) for state senate running against crooked incumbent Walter Kincaid (LeRoy Mason.) Morgan's campaign is headed by saloon owner Queenie Canfield (Grace Leonard.) Jim visits Doc Winslow (Harry Holman) and asks him to keep on the lookout for a man with a jagged scar on his left arm, as a man so-marked had shot Jim's father in the back with a silver bullet which Jim now wears as a watch fob, with full intentions of returning it to the former owner. Kincaid has Morgan killed, and Jim, Nancy Lee (Jennifer Holt)and others now campaign for Morgan's widow, Emily (Claire Whitney.)
