With a plot closely resembling Republic's later big-budget western of 1940, THE DARK COMMAND, this picture deals with government man Wayne's attempts to hold an honest election despite the efforts of Woods, who secretly heads a band of raiders. At issue is the possible statehood of the

Wyoming territories. Hayes, beardless, is outstanding as a crusading newspaper editor whose courage costs him his life; assuming the editorial reins after his demise is daughter Rutherford. Wayne masses the good citizens, who barricade the town and turn the rebels out. The referendum is fairly

balloted and the territories achieve statehood. The first of a series of three westerns starring Wayne and directed by Kane.
