A good story, punctuated with some exciting incidents
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The mob scene in this film is exciting and it is a tense moment when the superintendent and the faithful Logan are almost overpowered just as the sheriff arrives. So far as the picture dealing with the labor question is concerned, it only shows some scenes in a strike. The heroic action of the woman in rising from a sick bed and riding for aid rouses the sympathy of the audience, while the steadfast determination of Logan to stand by the company is commendable. That he succeeds in securing the consent of the superintendent to increase wages is quite as much to his credit as the superintendent's. The film tells a good story, punctuated with some exciting incidents, but it is in no sense a homily upon labor difficulties. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
