Brief Synopsis:
While in Chicago Judge Garth joins with a hotel chambermaid and a young
"assistant newspaper editor" (who's sweet on Betsy) to prevent a trio of con
artists from swindling naive prospector J. Jimerson Jones (O'Brien) out of
his newly acquired gold mine wealth.  But it would appear that Mr. Jones'
real "fortunes" are his honesty, generosity, and a few true friends. (bj)
