Plot Summary: Ben Trego dies defending his twin sons from Indian attack. Separated, the two boys grow
up very differently, one as Paul Marsden, the other as a cowboy named Three Word Brand. Paul becomes
governor of Utah while Brand partners with George Barton in a ranch. The owner of the adjacent ranch
plots to get Barton and Brand out of the way in order to control water rights. When Governor Marsden comes
to the area to investigate, Brand sees the resemblance between them, though neither knows about his twin.
Brand waylays Paul and takes his place as governor in an attempt to thwart the crooked rancher in the water
rights scheme.
