Ben's reunion with an old friend is marred when he learns that the man is wanted for stealing cattle and political crimes.


Ben's friend Beaudry visits the Ponderosa, meets Noreen, a beautiful girl at the Virginia saloon, gets into a roust, ends up in jail but Ben gets the instigators to own up and pay for the damages, so he is free. He asks Ben Cartwright for help starting a cattle ranch, without revealing his rustling and political crimes. Deputy Stryker comes to Virginia City from Montana with a warrant looking for Beaudry.
