Directed in an artistic and experienced manner
24 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A strong two-part production which has been played and directed in an artistic and experienced manner. It is a melodrama of the gold fields, and illustrates clearly the significance of its title at its worst. The avaricious man kills his partner because he will not reveal the whereabouts of the bags of gold which he has hidden. Later the child of the dead man is apprised of their whereabouts by a young doctor who has accidentally fallen into the cellar of the old cabin where the skeleton of the dead miner still lies, and finds a diary in which the message for his child is written. - The Moving Picture World, May 8, 1915
