The other obstacle to the railroad is Peter Van Zandt, son of Emory Van Zandt, the financier who is backing the railroad. Peter wants to get control of the railroad for himself.

Accusations are thrown at Flannigan and Sterling Cassidy, a crusading newspaper man, attacks Flannigan for introducing an infected cow. When Sterling is suddenly killed in the middle of the night all fingers point to Flannigan.
A range war begins while Sheriff Ferrell tries to pin down who is responsible for the bombing that killed Sterling, and justice will be served.
