Synopsis

Jim Kyneton, once a member of an outlaw gang, joins the Texas Rangers and is forced to track down his former friends and his half brother Nick, who have been robbing a gold mine. After he reluctantly captures them and locks them in a deserted shack, Roseen, a dance hall girl, who Jim saved from Buck Soutar, a saloon keeper, sets them free and, because Jim has refused her advances, sends the police a telegram saying that Jim accepted money to let them loose. Suspected of remaining a crook, Jim finds them again and captures all but Nick, who, rather than be disgraced, rides his horse off a cliff to his death. After Jim tells his mother that Nick died like a man, Jim breaks the news to Nick's supposed sweetheart Betty, an orphan Jim's mother has raised, and whom Jim has silently loved. To Jim's happy surprise, Betty says she has loved him all along, but thought that he loved Roseen.
