In an out-of-the-way spot in the mountains refugees from the United States and Canada, who are wanted for various crimes, have gathered. A man wanted for embezzlement arrives with his daughter Pauline. The embezzler is a natural leader and, to James' chagrin, becomes the leading spirit in the colony. Two members of the Northwest Mounted Police, Lon and Mac, are on the embezzler's trail. The embezzler, without James' knowledge, stations his men and instructs them to fire on the police. Mac is wounded. The embezzler's daughter takes him to her cabin. On one occasion the girl leaves the cabin and confers with her father. Lon follows and learns that her father is the man they are seeking. Believing that he has the girl at his mercy, Lon makes advances. Mac interferes because he, also, has fallen in love with Pauline.

Bloodhounds of the North (1913) -- Lost Silent
24 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A colony of refugees in the Canadian mountains are wanted by the police for various crimes. One day, a man ( William Lloyd ) sought for embezzlement arrives at the colony with his daughter Pauline ( Pauline Bush ). The embezzler is crafty and a natural leader of men, and thus becomes a new leader of the colony rivaling James ( James Neill ), the current leader. Two Mounties, Lon ( Lon Chaney ) and Mac ( Murdock MacQuarrie ), are on the trail of the embezzler who arranges an ambush for the Mounties. Mac is wounded and Pauline takes him to her cabin to care for him. Lon learns that her father is the man they are looking for. Believing that he has the girl at his mercy, Lon makes advances to her, but Mac interferes, because he has fallen in love with her. Mac learns of Pauline's father's identity and he goes to James to demand the surrender of the embezzler. As the man is arrested, Pauline pleads with Lon to let her father go. Lon lifts his revolver to shoot Mac, but the refugees shoot Lon and the embezzler is hit in the gunfire. Just as they are about to kill Mac, a Mountie arrives to save him.

"This 2-reel drama gives a good account of the Canadian Mounted Police, the romantic and adventurous constabulary of the Northwest woods...Some splendid woods and mountain settings occur." --Moving Picture World

This short drama was directed by Allan Dwan and filmed on location in in Mount Lowe, California. During filming, Lon Chaney and Arthur Rosson got lost in a canyon and were not located until the end of the day. The cast and crew were also stranded in their cabins for five days due to heavy rains. Sadly this film remains lost.
