The Lone Ranger and Tonto ride into a strangely deserted town. There are no people and all the animals are asleep. They find a girl tied to a chair in a house. After they untie her, the three are forced into a mine by a deranged man, who proceeds to blast the entrance closed. All the townspeople are in the mine, having been brought there after drinking drugged water. Their captor, Sully, says he'll blast the entrance open if Dixon, the mine's owner, signs the mine over to him.
