Storyline

Rupert Montgomery Featherstone, a retired actor, so the story goes, while picking his way tediously along the sunbaked cedar ties of the Great Eastern Railroad, observed at the side of the track a silk hat, a Prince Albert coat and a leather purse, the property, no doubt, of some careless passenger on the flying limited, which had just passed him. Opening the purse he found a railroad pass, issued to that honorable dignitary, the president of the Great Eastern, on whose property he was then trespassing. Rupert Montgomery Featherstone thought for a moment. He recalled that at one time he had found a purse containing $7,000.00, the property of one Hiram Rich, a Wall Street millionaire. Rupert had returned the purse to its owner, expecting to be nobly rewarded for his honesty, but on the contrary had received merely a glazed smile and an icy "thank you" from the magnate, who indicated the door of the outer reception room and returned to his stock reports.

The picture is distinctly amusing, without being silly
23 December 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An Essanay comedy which includes more melodrama than is usually put into these comedy films. Finding a pass Rupert travels as the president of the road, but is prevented from actual wrong by a Salvation Army lass who induces him to return the money to the real president. Like all melodramas the action leads to a business connection which turns out as well as it possibly could. The acting is so good that it is humorous, to see Rupert impersonating the president of the road is comical because it is so good, and this is enjoyed immensely by the audience. And when the real president is put off the train because his hat, coat and pass are missing there is another laugh. The picture is distinctly amusing, without being silly, and will add to the high reputation for comedy which has been established by this company. - The Moving Picture World, September 11, 1909
