It's Harry Carey versus Noah Beery in this amusing Western, released during the November elections, 1922. S.S. Thorpe (Beery) realizes that J. Wesley Pringle (Carey) is likely to beat him out for the position of sheriff, but plans to use any means, no matter how dirty, to keep this from happening. Simon Hibbler (Thomas Jefferson) is Pringle's biggest supporter, with the possible exception of his daughter, Georgie (Vola Vale). He also has a friend in Fite (Tully Marshall), a woefully henpecked husband whom Pringle saved from suicide. Thorpe knocks Pringle off a cliff, and when this doesn't kill him, he tries to kidnap him and frame him for murder. With Fite's help, Pringle escapes and he bribes Thorpe's Turkish masseuse into changing places with him. Then he rescues Georgie, fights off a bunch of varmints and gets back to town in time to win the election. Thorpe winds up behind bars and the new sheriff weds Georgie.
