Dull oater stars Payne as a Confederate soldier who was held as a prisoner by the Union and, now that the war is over, must return home. Upon his arrival, he is shocked to learn that his town is now run by a dishonest, paranoid man, Bettger, who is ruling the area as if he were a king.

When the townsfolk see that Payne has returned, they attempt to get him to lead a revolt against Bettger, but Payne refuses and appears to turn against them by getting a job as the tax collector. Little do the villagers know that Payne is only pretending to be on Bettger's side in order to gather

enough evidence to legally throw the bum out of office. Bettger proves to be no dummy, however, and he soon learns of Payne's scheme. To combat this, the evildoer frames Payne on a murder charge, which forces the hero to take it on the lam. In the end, Payne manages to clear his name and run

Bettger and his cronies out of town.
