Storyline

At the fourth of July celebration the local representative to the territorial legislature John Springfield announces he is resigning his job due to being tired of the politics involved. Immediately a shout goes up for Tobe Larkin to run from the lawyer Lou White. Later, at Shiloh rancher Bennett Poole asks Clay Grainger to run against Larkin saying he has the support of many in Medicine bow including Sheriff Abbott. Clay agrees since he disagrees with Larkin on a proposal for land near Medicine Bow. Clay goes to Springfield for advice only to learn the truth about Poole and why he was selected to run. Realizing Clay is a strong candidate, Larkin and White decide to turn the farm vote against Clay using the old issues between homesteaders and ranchers. When Clay learns he was deceived when asked to run, he moves to win the campaign with honesty. Seeing a strong surge for Clay, White suggests stronger action to dirty Clay's name to clinch the vote for Larkin to which Larkin agrees. Written by Anonymous
