After it acquires the California territory from Spain, the United States government requires the holders of Spanish land grants to register their land or the land will become public domain. Don Pablo Gonzales, eager to acquire the lands of Don Jose Castanares, misleads Don Jose into believing that he should refuse to register. At the same time, Don Pablo's son Luis is pursuing Dolores, Don Jose's daughter. She does not love him, however, preferring to find a man of action. American soldier Captain John Holmes is dispatched to convince the land owners to register. On the way to Don Jose's, he rescues Dolores from her runaway coach. Luis is furious, as he instigated the attack so he could rescue Dolores and prove his manhood. By defending them, John acquires some allies in Felipe, a fortune-teller, and in Jake Morgan's gang. Dolores introduces John to her father as the man who saved her life. John explains the land registration to Don Jose, who agrees to register his land the next day. When Don Jose leaves home, however, Don Pablo kidnaps him and Dolores promises to marry Luis in order to free her father. After learning that Luis is engaged to Anita Garcia, the daughter of the saloon owner, John plans to have her substituted for Dolores before the wedding. He sends his horse, Duke, with a message for Morgan's men, and when they arrive, Don Pablo's duplicity is revealed. Dolores is now free to marry John with her father's ...
