Vitagraph's husband-and-wife team of William Duncan and Edith Johnson starred in this fine silent western about a cowboy who wins a newspaper in a poker game. Taking over the journal, Jerry Hoskins (Duncan) immediately begins a crusading campaign to get rid of the town's corrupt sheriff (Dick LaReno). The editor's headstrong daughter (Johnson) is none too taken with her father's new boss, however, but changes her mind after he saves her from a runaway carriage.
