Their places were filled by others and day after day the strikers saw their families failing in health of insufficient food. The manufacturer's daughter, who has just passed sixteen, had always been shielded from the world, and regarded her father as the kindest and best of men.

The plot is very interesting
9 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A strike story, in which good use is made of contrast between the rich and poor. The plot is very interesting and has a very human touch toward the close. The scenes were rather hurriedly put together in places, but this does not greatly mar the interest of the piece. William Russell and Florence La Badie play the parts of father and daughter. An entertaining number. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
