In this rare surviving two-reeler for Edmund Cobb's Universal series, the taciturn star plays Constable Collins, a Northwest Mounted police officer assigned to help pretty Rose Foster (Helen Foster) and her brother, Jack (Newton House), who are in trouble with a gang of claim jumpers. Unbeknownst to Rose, the gang is headed by Jim Murdock, whom the girl considers her only friend. Collins, who pretends to be a drifter, immediately becomes suspicious of Murdock's motives and the villain strikes back by having Rose kidnapped. There is a climactic fight in an abandoned shack in the wilderness but young Jack arrives in the nick of time with the Mounties.
