The drive is worried about a storm so Rowdy decides to ask about using a sheltered area on the Webster ranch. Cassie Webster tells him her husband died three years earlier and he is not welcome on the ranch. At camp they discuss what to do as they are short on supplies to reverse direction. The mayor, Mel Thorner, and saloon owner Talbot from Broken Bluff ride into camp with an offer. They will provide supplies on credit and free beer if the drovers stay in the area two days to vote in an election on women's suffrage. The drivers quickly agree but find themselves in the middle of a battle between Cassie who was forced into an unwanted marriage at the age of eighteen to fifty year old Webster versus Talbot and Thorner. They want to keep the vice in town with the tax income it brings in while Cassie wants reform. The men are forced to try to move the herd onto the Webster place but the women stop them with fire and smoke. Talbot unsure of a victory decides to burn Cassie's ranch ... Written by Anonymous
