Jim Hardie has been sent to check on an estate that was bequeathed by Ed York to the son of a know outlaw, Bart Casement. Many think Ed York was Bart Casement. York's body was found with York having been shot in the head. His will left the homestead to Bob Casement who was raised in Ohio by a good family. As Casement gets off the train he is met by the rancher Jeff Parrish and his henchman. Parrish has the henchman beat up Casement and try to put him back on the train as Hardie walks up. Hardie stops them and introduces himself. He supports Casement and offers to ride out to the homestead with him. Meanwhile, Parrish complains to Sheriff Bob Gannon and his daughter Sally but the Sheriff says he will follow the rule of the law. When Hardie and Casement arrive at the homestead, they are met by two of Parrish's men who Hardie is able to disarm. Parrish wants the land to complete his ranch and will go to any lengths.
