Steve Bell, a down-on-his-luck farmer with a sick wife and a pile of unpaid bills, claims to be a notorious criminal so his wife can collect the $1000 reward for his capture. When Marshal Tallman is skeptical about the claim, the real criminal sends a confederate to Yellowstone to positively identify Bell as the outlaw. When the ruse doesn't fool Adam, the two crooks plan to break Steve out of jail so they can kill him. Written by
