Tom Craig (John Wayne), a pharmacist, arrives in Sacramento and gets into trouble with Britt Dawson (Albert Dekker) for carrying Lacey Miller (Binnie Barnes) across a mud puddle. Tom teams up with Kegs (Edgar Kennedy) and they are thrown off the river boat by Britt’s henchmen. Tom strikes a deal with Lacey to sell his pharmaceuticals in her store. Ellen Sanford (Helen Parrish) and Tom begin a romance. Tom and Kegs organize the settlers to stop Dawson’s land-grabbing gang. Tom proposes to Ellen as she leaves for San Francisco. Helga (Patsy Kelly), Lacey's lady's maid, gun in hand, marches Kegs off to get married. Whitey (Emmett Lynn), the town drunk, drinks Tom’s elixir tonic, which Dawson has poisoned, and dies in Tom’s store. The townspeople take Tom out to hang him, but he is saved when gold is discovered. Dawson shoots up Tom’s store, they fight, and Tom ends up in jail.

Lacey leaves Britt for the gold miners who are suffering from typhoid fever. Tom leaves Ellen, loads up medicine and with the townspeople depart for the gold fields. Britt and his brother Joe (Dick Purcell) plan to ambush the townspeople to steal the medicine. Joe shoots Britt and attacks the townspeople but Britt, who is only wounded, shoots Joe. Tom and the townspeople make it to the miners camp, thus saving them. Britt admits to poisoning Tom's elixir and dies. Back in town Tom and Lacey reunite.
