Streetor is pulling off a land swindle and wants Thompson on his side. He does him a favor and then makes him Sheriff. But as Streetor evicts the ranchers, Thompson and Judge Cooper look for a legal device to stop him.
Jonathan Streeter (Robert Ellis), a crooked land promoter in Ropersville, helps cowpuncher Brand Thompson (Buck Jones)become sheriff of the town. Brand's sweetheart, Grace Duncan (Shirley Grey), and many other settlers have been living on and improving farms and ranches they bought from Streeter, but without receiving land-titles. Then, a number of families from Chicago arrive in town with titles to the land occupied by Grace and the other settlers. Streeter has flown to coop, but Brand, as sheriff, has to declare the newcomers are the legal owners. And then has to find a way to settle the disputes to the satisfaction of all concerned.
