Synopsis

While riding through Rock Pass, singing cowboy Tex Archer and his pal, bearded mandolin player Duke Evans, witness a raid on the freight hauling wagons of George Summers. After the gang kills Summers and burns his wagons, they see Tex and Duke, and leave. Tex comforts Summers' daughter Madge and vows to help. When Marshal Pinker of Tonto refuses to send a posse, Tex and Duke deliver the Summers' freight from Placer City. Kalmus, the owner of a rival freight company who has influence with the marshal and Judge Roy Dean, sends gangleader Red Holman to stop Tex, but Tex and Duke safely get through after pretending to have been shot. In town, Tex bests Red in a fight and learns from Madge that if she loses the freight franchise, the valley's ranchers and merchants will be forced out because of unfair freight prices. Red is shot by his own gun during a struggle with Tex, but during Tex's trial, Duke forces Red, still alive, into Judge Dean's bar. As Red is about to name Summers' murderer, he is shot. Tex and Duke are jailed, but they escape before Kalmus arrives with men to lynch them. After Tex and some townsmen get the rest of the goods from Placer City, Kalmus' gang follows. Kalmus dies in battle, and Tex, Duke and Madge lead the new "Archer-Summers Freight Line."
