Storyline

Jack Walton, a renegade, while gambling, is detected cheating by a Mexican, and in a quarrel, kills his opponent and escapes. He later appears at a ranch owned by Mrs. Sawyer, a widow, who has a daughter, Grace. At the time of Walton's arrival, Tom Lewis is foreman. A mutual dislike exists from the beginning between Jack and Tom. Grace also instinctively distrusts Jack, but his personality fascinates Mrs. Sawyer, and he gains an influence over her to the extent that Tom is deposed and Jack succeeds him. Mrs. Sawyer also opposes Tom's attention to Grace. One day Jack learns through a letter that a reward is offered for his capture and a get-away is imperative, but he must secure some of Mrs. Sawyer's money, which is deposited in a town a few miles away. He pretends that he has an opportunity to buy a valuable ranch for $5,000. He proposes marriage to Mrs. Sawyer and prevails upon her to go to the bank and draw the money.

Will he succeed in swindling the women before the sheriff gets him?
27 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

For the last few weeks the pictures made by the Lubin Western Company have been better than ordinary; this, if it is by the same company, is a distinct letdown. It has one very serious fault; it is broken backed. A schemer, whom the sheriff wants, is hoodwinking a woman who owns a ranch. The interest of this half may be expressed thus, will he succeed in swindling the women before the sheriff gets him? After his pal sends him a note saying that the sheriff has learned his whereabouts, there is a new interest and a very much weaker one. It might be expressed by the question, will the girl save the money before he gets it? In a work of art, two halves are never so good as one whole. We must add that the two halves in this picture are pretty good. - The Moving Picture World, September 7, 1912
