Still clad in his stolen uniform, Steve Carson hurries out into the street with the rest of the rioters. The leader, thinking Steve is one of them, orders him to join a firing squad, but at the last moment, Steve wipes out the rest of the firing squad instead! Meanwhile, the rioters have broken into every bank in town, even the Treasury itself! Steve comes up with a quick plan, and leads a federal raid on the Experimental Science Building. Once they have secured it, Carson directs the rescued scientists to invent the required technology for his plan to work. They do so, and half an hour later Steve is outside the labs, with a mysterious package, which he stashes in a nearby, un-raided bank. He substitutes his package for an equal volume of radium, and hides. Soon some gas-masked raiders arrive to empty the vault, and return to the giant tank, which then rolls ponderously out of town. That's when Carson's planted package, deep inside the tank, explodes, sending a radically new, mask-penetrating, knock-out gas. Soon federal forces have regained control of the area, and the inert raiders are dragged out of the tank.
