Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In somewhat of a departure from his usual fare, Western star Buck Jones played a Scottish coal miner-turned-Northwest Mounted Police Officer in this silent outdoors melodrama. Jock MacTier (Jones) loves Margaret MacPherson (Helene Rosson), but she ups and marries mining pay master Arthur Whitman (William Lawrence). After nobly saving his rival's life in a mine flood, MacTier makes the aforementioned change of occupation. In the Canadian Northwest, he makes the acquaintance of lovely Lenore De Marney (Beatrice Burnham), whose father is having trouble with a gang of thieves. In one of those coincidences only found in cheap melodrama, the leader of the gang is none other than Whitman, MacTier's old nemesis, who has already abandoned his wife. MacTier beats Whitman once and for all and earns the love of Lenore.
