Donald Keith, a young lawyer who takes up residence in the small town of Owasco, Michigan, finds himself opposed by lumber king Quartus Hembly, feared by all the townspeople. Keith takes up the case of Daniel Kersten against Hembly, who has cheated him out of his property, and during his investigation he discovers that the father of Thora Erickson, whom he loves, conspired with Hembly against Kersten, and at length he obtains a deathbed confession from Erickson. Hembly has Keith wounded on the night before the trial and bribes the jury, but Keith appears, stirs up the town in rebellion against Hembly in spite of his weakened condition, and wins his case.
