The whole situation is clear and interesting
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is not necessarily a story of a mine; the deserted shaft might have been a part of any engineering work like an aqueduct. One of the assistant engineers on the work, which seems to be extensive, pushed the paymaster, who was a much slighter man, into it. He was jealous on account of a girl. The paymaster had the week's pay envelopes with him. He was missed at once and the men searched carefully for him, and a large reward was offered for his arrest and conviction. The engineer, however, was conscience-stricken and confessed to the girl, who got help and saved the paymaster, her sweetheart. The man's predicament and the stir caused by his disappearance are very skilfully shown and the whole situation is clear and interesting. It is a very good picture for almost any occasion. It is substantial enough to serve as the leading picture in most bills. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
