Storyline

Far up in the mountains Mrs. Bailor's two sons, Tom and Harry, are engaged at their distilling, constantly in fear of being pursued by the revenue officers, and arrested as moonshiners. Harry is taken ill and during his sickness, the revenue officers learn of the location of the still and are in pursuit of the two brothers. While Harry is soundly sleeping in a cabin, convalescing from his illness, his guns are stolen from his room by another moonshiner, with whom the mountains abound. The man with the stolen gun meets one of the officers and shoots him, leaving Harry's gun by his side. Harry is suspected of the crime and arrested. His devoted mother pleads for her son and tries to show the sheriff and his aides that it was impossible for her boy to have committed this crime, as he was in bed at the time and had not been from the house until the present time. Sue, his sweetheart, is heart-broken, and intercedes for him. But it is to no purpose. The sheriff place the handcuffs on him ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Very well knit and loses no time with unimportant trivial things
11 September 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very tragic picture of Kentucky mountain folk, moonshiners, and of a conflict with excise men. Miss Julia Swayne Gordon plays the lead as the old mother of a son (Mr. Delany) and of a daughter (Miss Gardner). The plot, showing how the son came to be arrested for murder and how the old mother killed him with a rifle bullet to keep him from being hung, is very well knit and loses no time with unimportant trivial things. The incident has happened more than once and is typical of the mountain folk. It is very well presented and is a sure feature. It should be billed as Miss Julia Swayne Gordon's picture. - The Moving Picture World, February 24 1912
