Sydney and all of Kal's friends turn against him, with the exception of "Nugget" (Frances Grant), a dance hall girl secretly in love with him. Kal is preparing to take Leavit before the miner's court when Steve returns to tell how he had been attacked while on the way to register the claim, but before he can be called as a ...
