When Rhinelander's original copies of the right-of-way are destroyed in a fire, Helen and Storm go to Las Vegas with a note to secure certified copies. Seagrue accidentally sees Rhinelander's note. Seagrue and his gang then steal the book containing proof of Rhinelander's deed from the Recorder's office. Spike is able though to tear out the pertinent pages by distracting Bill, one of Seagrue's gang. When Seagrue learns the pages are missing, he sends Bill to fetch Spike. An argument ensues when Bill finds Spike. Meanwhile, a bullet goes off from a rifle being cleaned nearby. As Bill dodges the passing bullet he strikes his head on an awning cleat, and a crowd of laborers accuses Spike of shooting Bill. When the crowd tries to storm the jail to lynch Spike, a telegram is sent to Rhinelander to bring help. The sheriff tries to sneak Spike away from the jail but is spotted and takes refuge in a building, handcuffing Spike to a post. A fire breaks out and Spike is stranded in the burning building, but Helen and Storm rush through the flames to his rescue. When it is learned that Bill's injury is not a bullet wound, Spike is released.
