Storyline

The Lone Ranger is cutting across country to visit Sheriff Hollister. Meanwhile a group of men discover gold on private land. They have a falling out over the strike and one of them is murdered, all witnessed by a young boy, Johnny Williams. Johnny goes to tell his parents but the Lone Ranger finds the body and takes it into town. Johnny's parents don't believe his story. The Ranger reports to the sheriff and finds out who the victim was. He goes to a homestead and meets Johnny and questions him about what he saw. The Lone Ranger and the sheriff set a trap using Tonto as bait. The two outlaws learn that the body was found by Tonto. Later the outlaws discover the boy also saw the murder. They figure Tonto is trying to smoke them out, and the boy is the real witness. They go to the ranch the kill the boy. The Lone Ranger realizes the danger and heads for the ranch. Once he gets there a fist fight breaks out and the two men are detained. Written by glen_chapman <chapman_glen@yahoo.com>
