Has an excellent purpose behind it
20 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A typical political story, in which the mayor is induced by a girl political worker to inspect the tenements. He finally agrees to this and as a result forces passage of the cleanup bill. This is well acted and nicely pictured. The tenement scenes could have been more representative of conditions existing. The film has an excellent purpose behind it and is quite forcefully presented. - The Moving Picture World, April 25, 1914
