Houston's daughter, Hope, On an errand to the town be incurs the enmity of Hawkins, a bad man who is beating Paecha, a little squaw and his common-law wife, A shooting scrape is averted by the quick action of the friends of the two men. Hawkins, the secret captain of a band of cattle rustlers, is in the saloon planning a raid on a herd of cattle. Cameo, taking pity on Paecha takes her safely home. While riding the open country Cameo stumbles on to the cattle rustlers and rides to Col. Houston's roundup to sound the warning. Upon his arrival he learns from the Colonel that Hawkins, who enjoys the confidence of the cattle men, has accompanied Hope to the House Ranch. He becomes uneasy and rides for the ranch house at full speed. He arrives just in time to surprise Hawkins making love to Hope. Insane with rage for being again crossed by Cameo, the two men watch each other warily. Hawkins pretending to depart succeeds in wounding Cameo in the hand. Hope beseeches Cameo for his own good not to kill Hawkins, and he is allowed to go unharmed. Realizing the game is up, Hawkins hurries off to his men to warn them to drive the cattle out of the country. In the meantime, the whole country has been aroused and with Cameo and Col. Houston at the head of a band of doughty cowboys, surprises the thieves and drives them on to a cliff. Hawkins makes his escape and to throw his pursuers off the track, doubles back to the ranch house. Love's instinct causes Cameo uneasiness for the safety of Hope alone at the ranch house and after taking an active part in the posse, rides ahead to the ranch house. He falls into a trap laid by Hawkins. Paecha, the little squaw, inspired by love for Hawkins, has dogged his footsteps in order to wield a protecting influence upon him, discovers the love Hawkins bears for Hope. The revelation arouses jealousy in her and she arrives at the ranch house just in time to see him on the verge of killing Cameo, the man who was kind to her. A shot rings out in the darkness and Hawkins falls lifeless. Hope rushes to Cameo and Paecha comes into the ranch house and tells of her deed and then departs, heartbroken.
