Many loopholes in the legal system involved the land claim, and one that many unscrupulous people took advantage of.
Martin and Hank are neighbors who has gotten in friendly with a fellow homesteader, Tompkins, who is off to file his claim. After years of working the land, and more time than that with his girlfriend, Tom is off to register his claim, and cash in on the fruits of his labor and get married. Little does he know of his neighbor’s bad intentions.
Later, Pancho is startled to see a cabin moving on it’s own. Of course Cisco points how the movers are moving it, but when approached the cabin movers are rude enough for Cisco to get into a fist fight with them. Smelling a rat, Cisco goes to town to talk with the land claims officer. Being new in town, the neighbors have fed the claims official lies so they can jump the claim. Will it work?
While Ed Tompkins is away to get his gal, and bring her back, Cisco tries to defend the homesteader. It’ll take more than just a fist fight to sway the mind of the claims officer. If Cisco can’t get to the bottom of the mix up, Tompkins faces not only losing all his hard work, but being arrested as well.
