Fabulously wealthy Adam Brokes hires Dr. Bobbs as his personal physician. Brokes takes Dr. Bobbs to Jacktown, a former ghost town that Brokes, under the name "Cactus Jack," had been spending money on for 20 years. Brokes and Bobbs disguise themselves as hobos to see how Brokes' money has been used. They find that Jacktown has been taken over by corrupt politicians who use Brokes' money to enrich themselves and hold an iron grip on the town.
