A familiar plot.

Arthur O'Connell stars in this episode as an Irishman named Matt Dexter
who is a vagabond traveling the rural west. Dexter makes money in local
saloons where he plays his harmonica for coins. One evening after
making some small change, Dexter leaves the saloon and witnesses Den
Wilkins shoot a local lawyer named Johnson dead. At the time of the
shooting Wilkins has two of his friends, Ralston and North, nearby and
they tell the Marshal that the shooting was in self-defense. However,
Dexter knows this is not true but wants nothing to do with the evil men
so he cuts town and heads west.
The law begins to look for Dexter as a material witness in the trial
but he has already left the area. Ralston and North know that they have
to find the Irishman before the law and make sure he does not talk. And
dead men tell no tales.
Dexter, in the mean time, has found shelter in an area near Outpost.
Davey finds him playing his harmonica and they become friends. Dexter
knows that the two men will be looking for him so he makes a pact with
Davey not to tell anyone his whereabouts. But when Ralston overhears a
conversation with a store clerk, they know that Davey will lead them to
the man they want killed.
This was a simple plot that has been played out in many forms of
entertainment. Thus, the situation was no big surprise to the viewer.
There were some nice scene but nothing that really stood out as
remarkable. They only thing new to the plot was the fact that the
Irishman and Davey both played the harmonica but that never really
stirred much interest. It was an average show for an average plot.
