Storyline

The daughter of a capitalist and manufacturer is courted by a young officer of the militia, and, at the same time, a young clergyman is deeply in love with her. She seems to favor the military man, because, as she says, "She prefers a man who does things, to one who simply preaches them." Dissatisfaction arises among the employees of the big manufacturing plant of the town. A committee calls upon the manager and proprietor, whom we must identify as the father of the young lady who is in love with the young soldier. The committee requests a recognition of their rights: the manager refuses. Trouble seems imminent and the young clergyman appeals to the proprietor in behalf of the men. His intercession is also denied. The strike is on. Crowds assemble in mass meetings, agitators incense them with hatred and inflame them with vengeance, and violence runs riot.

It is much too realistic to be comfortable
27 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The chief interest in this picture will center in the scenes depicting a strike and the riotous work of a mob. It is much too realistic to be comfortable. It gives a graphic representation of mob violence when unrestrained. It is a good bit of acting when the young minister rushes in, calms the mob, obtains concessions from the capitalist and in reality saves the day for everybody. The soldier with his regiment arrives too late to be of service. Perhaps the picture will have a salutary influence during this season when strikes pervade the air and from almost every section of the country comes talk of industrial complaint. - The Moving Picture World, April 2, 1910
