The new boss of the ranch has designs on Molly, and tells her that he will assist in freeing her brother Joe (Sutherland), who is in prison charged with murder, if she goes with him across the border.

Meanwhile, the Prince is playing hooky from the dinner and is out driving around with Peggy Bruce (Lee), whom Franklin loves. Out of curiosity they stop by the haunted house in time for the fight between Franklin and the gang.
