The Lone Ranger and Tonto lend their help in a mining town. A cantankerous old miner is accused of being wreckless. What if he had an accident in his mine, would he sel out? What if someone had a grudge and tried to sabotage his operation?
The old miner doesn’t scare easily and takes chances. Suddenly there’s trouble at the mine, and the Lone Ranger races to check it out. When he gets there, he learns that the explosion was blamed on him. The miner rants to the Lone Ranger without recognizing who he’s talking to. The Lone Ranger plays on that and works with the Sheriff to get the imposter, bring him to justice, and get the miner back on his feet.
Things begin to sway in the Lone Ranger’s favor when he secretly leaves the money, and a silver bullet, for the miner to rebuild, and get back to mining. The Lone Ranger continues to play his advantage and pretends to be an outlaw to do the dirty work for Beasley. Instead, he lures the saboteuru into a trap to show his hand.
Sometimes justice comes at the end of a rope, or in a courtroom, but today the Lone Ranger gets the bad guy to pay up big bucks to the miners.
