Storyline

John Bright, owner of the hotel and bar at camp, dolefully shook his head as he listened to the reading of Jack Carroll's letter announcing his coming. He had heard very good reports of the young minister, and would have liked to see him succeed, but he knew too well the methods of "Cyclone Bill," middle-weight champion of the state, and his gang to doubt but that Jack Carroll's sojourn would be even shorter than the other parson's. Unfortunately, Cyclone Bill had heard of the new minister carrying off a few prizes as an amateur boxer, and he fairly ached to put the gloves on with the newcomer and teach him that nothing that he and his gang disapproved of would be tolerated in his sermons. Bill's ire was further aroused by Dixie Bright meeting Carroll at the station, and when he and Hank Pierce overtook them on the road and attempted to pick a quarrel, he was the spark of amusement in her eyes, when overcome by the young parson's audacity, he surrendered his gun. Egged on by his gang ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Both improbable and perhaps impossible
31 May 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One of those stories which unaccountably thrills one, even though in a way it is both improbable and perhaps impossible. To see a tough thoroughly thrashed is a pleasurable sensation, and in this instance it is so well done that every miner in the wild town goes to church and listens to the fighting parson preach. It is possible to veer a crowd by exhibiting brute strength, and in this instance it was thoroughly done. Moreover, the acting, the staging and the photography are all alike good. One may say without hesitation that this picture will be popular wherever it is shown, and, like a good story, those who see it will want to see it again. - The Moving Picture World, May 28, 1910
