Storyline

"Snake" Williams, typical bad man, and a little group of cowboys are found loitering lazily about the Snakeville, Ariz. barroom, when the noon-day stage coach out of Phoenix rumbles around pike and deposits one lone passenger. Interest is immediately aroused and as the stage coach pulls out, Snake, the constant bully, sidles up to the newly arrived stranger to inquire the latter's business, explaining at the same time that although the town has no mayor or reception committee, he will be pleased to do the honors. Following the statement Snake invites the stranger into the "Silver Dollar" for any refreshments the gentleman might desire, with the recommendation that "Old Henry" is about the best the "Silver Dollar" affords.

One feels almost like hurling one's cap in the air
23 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An interesting picture, representing a scene which might have occurred almost anywhere in the romantic days of the West. Often one has read stories like this and has thrilled with exultation to learn that a typical bad man has been defeated; and when a preacher, supposedly the most peaceful of men, wins an encounter like this, one feels almost like hurling one's cap in the air and yelling one's self hoarse. Much the same impression is made by this picture and the revival of a sentiment of this character will do much to make the picture popular. Acting and photography are alike adequate and the picture is sure to he popular. - The Moving Picture World, April 30, 1910
