Fabulously wealthy Adam Brokes hires Dr. Bobbs as his personal physician.

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.
