As the boss of the Rock Island Trail Company a contractor of the US government which builds railroad tracks for the expanding railway Reed Loomis has to enter into rivalry with stagecoach and riverboat companies like the one who is led by Kirby Morrow. Morrow does not hesitate to embark on sabotage to stop competitors.

After a sabotage attempt where a riverboat was deliberately driven into the pile of a railroad bridge which was severely damaged, the matter goes on trial. A lawyer Abraham Lincoln is hired by Loomis to defend the case on court, Lincoln who has found a child as a witness and consultant manages to win the trial. The Riverboat company has to bebuild the bridge.

Loomis is engaged to Constance Strong the rich and beautiful daughter of David Strong a banker, although Constance wants to marry him as soon as possible, he refuses to do so before he has not become a rich man himself.

In another attempt to stop Loomis and his men, Morrow convinces the chief of an indian tribe to attack a train with Loomis and his crew on board. The attack fails, Morrow is captured and killed.

Finally the Rock Island Trail Company achieves its goals and Loomis marries Constance in a train.
