After Bob and two friends arrive in Lorento, Ladero's men kidnap Dulcina and confine her to a monastery to force her to marry Ladero.

After Dulcina escapes with the aid of a priest about to perform the marriage, Riaz tries to assault her in a telegraph station, but she shoots him. When Bob arrives, Ladero orders his men to fire on the station. After the president dies, Ladero's forces are routed in the city, and Braga's soldiers rescue Bob, his friends and Dulcina. Later, Bob, proclaimed president, marries Dulcina.
