This is one of many Stan Laurel comedies he made before teaming up with Oliver Hardy. Some of these films were wonderful, but this one is more typical in that it isn't all that funny. Sadly, without Hardy, Stan's films were usually a bit flat.
The film begins with dapper dude Stan going to work in the coal mines--and dressed in a raccoon coat, top hat and tux! After shedding this garb, most of the rest of the film consists of Stan annoying and starting fights between his fellow workers (by hitting them in the butt with his pickax and other such lame behaviors) as well as making passes at a lady miner (a lady miner??!!). None of this was particularly funny or inspiring and apart from the novelty of seeing Stan without Ollie, there's nothing to particularly recommend this film.
