Bill is in love with Rose Watkins, and the deadly enemy of her friend and protector, Indian Jim, who looms up as having designs on the water rights.

A Western story, written by W.E. Wing. The plot is somewhat on the made-to-order variety, employing the familiar Indian character to bring the threads together. The hero has an uncertain character, which makes it difficult for the observer to sympathize with him. The scene in which Rose employs dynamite to rouse the settlement and prevent the lynching of Indian Jim was most interesting. A fairly strong Western offering, with pleasing settings and photography. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
