Synopsis

Bert Granger, addicted to strong drink and heavy gambling, owns a saloon in which his children, Benny and the winsome Alice, entertain the habitu├ęs. At the bar one night, The Stranger interferes in a drunken quarrel and becomes involved in a bitter fight, from which he emerges victorious. He is strongly attracted to Alice, and he strikes up a conversation while, at the gambling table, her father is being cheated in a crooked card game and loses the deed to the saloon. When a reward is posted for Wolf Maclean, The Stranger, who resembles the description given of the notorious bandit, is arrested. The gamblers arrange for a quick hanging, but Parson Dan Williams saves The Stranger by announcing that he himself is Wolf Maclean and that the gamblers are his confederates in crime. Before the astonished populace can arrest the gamblers, the parson is killed by one of their vengeful number. The Stranger is cleared and wins Alice; Bert Granger reforms and opens a general store, with Benny as his partner.
