Watkins immediately notifies the sheriff, a posse is hurriedly organized and a search made for the culprits. However, their search is unfruitful, and Sheriff Watkins dismisses the posse and rides on to a neighboring town. In the meantime Big Bill Hastings, the robber, who has hidden in the hills until satisfied the posse has given up the chase, has examined his loot and stowed it away in his shirt bosom.

The film offers several novel situations
27 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of Western life which represents in a graphic way the peculiar code of honor that was observed among thieves and outlaws. To have a prisoner go to bed and know that he would be there the next morning is unusual to Eastern ways of doing, but that has actually occurred more than once out in the open. The gambling sheriff is a character who had many counterparts in the days that are gone. To see the thief come down and rob the keeper of the gambling house for the benefit of the sheriff is also unusual, but all the more interesting for that reason. In short, the film offers several novel situations. No one is sorry when the sheriff turns the prisoner loose after exacting from him a promise to do better in the future. - The Moving Picture World, November 19, 1910
