    A circumstantial evidence picture with a stronger situation than such usually have. The pistol had lain under a microscope. It had exploded and killed a man whom the accused had just a moment before threatened. No one saw the accident and it looked bad for the condemned man; but his innocence is proved in time to have the governor save his life. The picture appeals to one first by its pictorial excellence. It is an episode in a love story; Miss Elder plays the heroine's part and the sets as well as the photographs are commendable. The picture may pass as a feature, but it surely will be acceptable as a first-class filler. - The Moving Picture World, March 16, 1912
