Storyline

When Harry Mayhew stepped off the train at Hammondsville, there was nobody at the station to meet him.

The gentle mountaineers instantly held him up at the points of their guns. Robinetta, the daughter of the chief of the gang, promised to help him out of his difficulty, and accordingly stole away from the camp and hurried across the hills to the Hammond house.

The story is not at all probable
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

An exchange of suitcases on a passenger train brings out the action in this interesting story. The hero is held up by a gang of moonshiners, who think they have made a great haul when a bunch of greenbacks is found in the suitcase. The real owner of the suitcase later appears and is apprehended for having counterfeit money in his possession. The story is not at all probable, but the outdoor scenes and pleasing personality of the players help out the plot. Bliss Milford, Richard Neill and Augustus Phillips have the leading roles. - The Moving Picture World, October 18, 1913
