Storyline

The directors of the company operating the Hope Mine suspect a leakage in ore and send young Gause to investigate. Arriving on the scene, Gause and Merry, the pretty stenographer at the office, become friends. In looking over the property Gause determines to explore an old shaft. A week later Gause learns that ore is being shipped away at night, but while he is securing evidence the investigator is overpowered in the dark shaft and left unconscious. In an endeavor to imprison Gause, the mine foreman explodes a section of the mine, causing a cave-in. Merry, in the meantime, has suspected that all is not well with her sweetheart and organizes a rescue party. Gause is liberated, the dishonest superintendent is exposed and the mystery of the Hope Mine is cleared up. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The love is weak and unconvincing
9 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodrama depends on its love story, even when it contains the most exciting action. Without a strong love story, it is hard to make any story of villainy convincing, and when, as in this case, the love story is strictly subordinate, the whole suffers. The love is weak and unconvincing, but we have a struggle in the dark with revolver flashes only seen. This can be made very effective by a good sound effect man. We also have in the picture a dynamite explosion in a mine which is an exciting incident. As a whole, being well photographed, it makes a very fair offering. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
