The law is represented as taking its course
4 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodramatic story, told about some Western characters, big-hearted and liberal, contrasted with a despicable gentlemanly appearing man who apparently makes it his business to go about breaking up homes. A winsome little girl grows to womanhood under the fostering care of the cowboys. There is a romance that is almost interrupted and there are tragedies that serve to develop an interest. Th chase of the cowboys after the flying automobile is thrilling, but it must be confessed that one permits a sigh of relief to escape when the car breaks down and Dorothy is rescued from her dangerous position. One feature to be commended is that the law is represented as taking its course rather than depicting, or even suggesting, a lynching. The less such things are shown, or suggested, the better'it is. - The Moving Picture World, April 16, 1910
