Storyline

The crook is ever possessed of an clement of subtlety and inventive ingenuity, which, if exercised in worthy efforts would be highly commendable. Fate, however, always ethical, is unceasingly conspiring against a successful consummation of his sinister efforts. The apparent wealth in the suburban home of Mr. C.W. Bourne, the banker, has excited the cupidity of three members of the underworld. They therefore concoct a scheme to gain an entrance. First of all, they would learn the layout of the house. This they do by disguising one of their number as a messenger and delivering a fake package at the house. He reports to his comrades, and entering a large trunk, the other two dress as expressmen to deliver it with human contents. But there is another thing to be effected; that is to get the banker, who is the widowed father of two daughters, out of the way. This they do by sending the following telegram: "Come to New York at once. Big shortage. Cashier has committed suicide. Coulter." At ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Offers some novelty
22 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A fresh rendering of the means taken by a robber to enter a house by means of a trunk. While this plan has been worked before, this view of it is different and offers some novelty in the means by which the police are notified. The action of the eldest daughter when she sees the hand protrude from the partially opened trunk is natural, and her coolness in devising a plan for summoning the police is commendable. There is some suspense, however, while the police are on the way, but the girls are not harmed and the officers arrive in time to capture all three of the robbers. The father returning at this time helps in the capture of the thieves. Then the little family congratulate each other upon the fact that nothing more serious than a bad shakeup of their nerves occurred. - The Moving Picture World, November 5, 1910
