Storyline

Tom Saunders, of the Internal Revenue Service, acting on instructions from headquarters, is endeavoring to locate a band of smugglers on a Pacific Coast Island. He is attracted by the suspicious actions of a party of fishermen headed by old Joe Devonne, but is unable to obtain actual proof of their guilt. He meets the old man's daughter, and for business purposes, makes love to her. By a trick he learns through her, of the biding place of the smugglers and their hoard, and tackles the men single-handed. He is overpowered in the struggle in which the old man is shot in the arm. He is bound and taken aboard their sloop, and the supposition is that they will make short work of the spy. The girl, to whom the love-making has been a very serious matter, struggles between love for the man and filial duty and fears for his life. She swims out to the yawl and releases Tom.

As a whole, gives good entertainment
20 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A love story set on a rocky shore. Skillfully made it is and keeps one wondering whether the revenue man will be euchred or the smugglers. It's a three handed game; for the smuggler's daughter has fallen in love with the revenue man and, as the cards fall, we find her helping first one and then the other. The climax, not wholly unexpected, has freshness and the offering, as a whole, gives good entertainment. Bessie Eyton plays the girl in a charming way. Her swimming is one of the features of the picture. The revenue man is Thomas Santschi; the girl's father is Frank Richardson; Long Pete is Herbert Rawlinson; Fatty is George Hermandez; Anna Dodge plays Bessie's mother. - The Moving Picture World, October 26, 1912
