Storyline

Everything he did seemed to be misconstrued, except by the little lady he loved. The town roisters made fun of her and his love. That made trouble and the chief vigilante believed him the cause of it all. So he was "in wrong" all around. The girl's father also sided with the opinion of the world, and sent both the boy and girl away. Mother was on a visit at the time, and therein the need of such a one at home was proved, for once back she sent the father out to bring them home again. The boy in the gold hills had been misunderstood again. Marauding merchants had left their victim on the mountain pass and the boy, coming on the scene, was again accused, but the lie in the end destroyed itself. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Circumstantial evidence plays a big part in too many pictures
1 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good, interesting picture with clearly drawn characters and a well- developed story which, in itself, offers nothing noteworthy. Circumstantial evidence plays a big part in too many pictures to affect us deeply any more. Of course this is true only for those who have seen pictures for a long while. The speed with which this picture is carried to its climax, and the acting of most of its characters makes it a very fair offering. The photography is clear enough. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
