Two miners, knowing the widow can't work the claim, scheme to defraud her by claiming that they had bought the claim from her husband a couple of days before his death. The widow is horrified at the news; Mary refuses to believe it. The men try to put mother and daughter out, when a scout and his party drive the villains away.

While beating a retreat they see Mary, take her by force, and hide her in an old mine, counting on making the widow give them the claim for her daughter's safe return. The scheme might have worked but for Jim's intervention. Jim...
