The life of a hard working lumberjack, and his wife depend on whether they get the lumber contract. There’s plenty of competition with the Raleigh company, so it won’t be easy. The question is, will it be fair? Bill and Jingles enjoy the scenery as they ride through the majestic woodlands of Utah. Suddenly their special skills are called on when gunplay shatters the peaceful scene.
Ben Potter has been shot, and when Bill rides up, he and his wife are glad to meet the lawmen. A known outlaw, Jaw Miggs, is encountered, but is he behind the shootings? So far, there’s nothing for Bill to do, other than to suspect Miggs is up to no good. If Miggs is legitimate, where is his stand of trees?
Using government timber is off limits, and when Bill and Jingles are caught snooping, all pretenses drop at the gun point of Miggs. Competition is dealt with by setting fire to other stands of timber, but with the easy turn around of Migg’s men, Bill puts them to work fighting the fires they’ve set.
