Storyline

West, the foreman of the construction camp in which hydraulic pumps are in use, is discharged for drunkenness and young Clayton is installed in his place. The superintendent especially informs Clayton that the water at the pumping station must be turned off every night. Dolores, the pretty waitress in the cook shack, is annoyed at the attentions of the Mexican cook. Pedro, and Clayton, admiring the girl and seeing she is distressed, promises to help her if necessary. West and Pedro put their heads together and precipitate a fight between West and Clayton. Pedro watches with fiendish glee and Dolores also sees the fight. Running to the wheel which turns the water on or off, she manages to stop the flow just as Clayton falls.

Pedro sees this and alters the note to read, "tonight." Clayton finds the note ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Full of the spirit of outdoors
9 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel drama of the West is full of the spirit of outdoors. It has a lot of life and vigor. The hero is a young mining engineer in charge of a hydraulic mining outfit which figures conspicuously in the drama. The heroine is a very pretty Spanish maid to whom the cook of the camp is the pest of her life. The novel device of having the two rascals shoot one another by mistake, in the darkness, is commendable. The title is derived from the fact that the engineer is compelled to do some detective work to catch the rascals. The production is a good one of its type. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
