George MacAlister (Roger Pryor) fires his secretary, Miss Tracy (Mary Treen), just as she is typing up the policy and she, for spite, changes the amount from a thousand dollars to one million dollars. A.C. delivers the policy, without noticing the difference, to Terry at a party at the Frolics Club, a cheap joint wedged between a burlesque house and a flop house hotel.

The cattlemen send a note to Judge Jim Parker (Gordon DeMain as G. D. Woods) warning him to quit giving credit to the homesteaders, whom they assert, are ruining the range. Parker declares that his store will continue to give credit to the homesteaders and, incensed at his defiance, the cattlemen kill him. As he is dying, he tells his daughter Alice (Margaret Morris) and Matt Sanders (Tom Tyler), honest blacksmith, to carry on the fight to protect the homesteaders. Matt declares that he will, with the assistance of his brother, Phillip (Robert Manning), who is expected back from law school after an absence of many years. Phillip returns and is elected Judge by mostly the homesteaders vote. He is pleased with his new position, and also pleased with the friendship of Senator Graham (John Elliott) who holds out the bait of election to the Governor's chair if he will betray the homesteaders. He persuades Alice to mortgage her water rights to Senator Graham in order to have the money to extend further credit to the homesteaders. Despite several machinations by Graham and the cattlemen, mostly blocked by Matt, the homesteaders make a bumper crop and pay Alice back. Taking the money to the bank so she will have it in time to meet Graham's note, a galloping rider takes it from her. Snowflake (Fred Toones), who works for Matt, tells him of a conversation he overheard between Phillip and Graham when he was delivering a newly-shod horse to the Senator that reveals the Senator and Phillip connived to have the money stolen, so the mortgage can be foreclosed, and drive out the homesteaders. Matt refuses to believe the story, but finds proof in Phillip's desk. Matt and Phillip fight, with Matt winning and then going to rally the homesteaders to prevent the cattlemen from taking over.
The Western Code (1932) as Sheriff Purdy
Lucky Larrigan (1932) as
Typical of the Trem Carr-produced Monogram westerns starring Rex Bell, this one opens in the East with Craig Larrigan (Rex Bell)as a polo-playing playboy who has no use for the West nor the western way of life. Rancher Jess Bailey (John Elliott), accompanied by his daughter Virginia (Helen Foster), comes east to get his eastern-business partner John Larrigan (Wilfred Lucas, who despite the usually incorrect source that thinks so, did not direct this film)to advance him more money to keep their rustler-plagued ranch afloat, and Craig and Virginia strike up a romance, which is going nowhere fast because of his elitist attitude. The contrived motivation to get the Bell character out west makes less sense than usual, and the incidents that follow carry no logic either.
