It is a series of incidents strung together, 19 January 2015
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

Here is a clever piece of work. If ever a pompous policeman was hit off to the life it is here. All through the picture he is so frightened he makes no arrest, hut he manages to take advantage of what others do. The fun is in the acting, in the facial expression and in the very pompous way in which he receives the plaudits of the multitude. The story has no plot. It is a series of incidents strung together in a sort of story form, but really having no connection, excepting as the personality of the policeman is carried from scene to scene. The photography is an improvement over some other films from the same house, giving abundant evidence of an attempt to make it perfectly clear. The action is alive and the figures move like actual flesh and blood. In photography and printing there is room for improvement, but in staging and acting nothing further need be wished. - The Moving Picture World, November 27, 1909
