Arthur wins both success and love. He becomes engaged to the ranchman's daughter. Edward becomes the leader of a gang of outlaws and learns that a stagecoach containing a large amount of money is to arrive, which he plans to rob. The ranchman and his daughter are in the coach. The hold-up is a success, but they do not get the money. During the excitement, the ranchman tries to draw a gun and falls, mortally wounded. The robbers plan to hold the daughter for ransom. A posse, headed by Arthur, finds the robbers and a battle ensues, in which the two brothers meet. Arthur makes Edward a prisoner and is about to place on handcuffs, when a stray bullet kills Edward. Arthur then tells his sweetheart that the leader was his brother. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
