Wells Fargo sends Jim Hardie to Goldfield to help setup a new station that will be shipping silver. Jim is forced to hire an old employee suspected of helping rob Wells Fargo a few years ago in Tonodah when the original hire looks bad.
A silver strike has resulted in a new boom town of Goldfield where Wells Fargo must setup a new office. Jim Hardie is sent in to help the local agent Les Goslyn get things started. Les has hired a new shotgun, Ed Garrett, but unknown to him a pair of outlaws have killed him with outlaw Parker taking his place. He arrives for work while Jim is in the office. The fake Garrett says he has driven teams but Jim notices that his hands appear to have never touched a set of reins so he lets the man go. Earlier Phil Couglin had asked for the job but Les refused to hire him as it was reported he was involved in a robbery at Tonodah but it was never proven. Needing a shotgun Jim decides to hire Phil over the objections of Les. On their first run together the outlaws strike but Phil holds them off. But later they contact Phil to force him to help them.Written by
