Storyline

Jack Stone was wanted, or, at least under suspicion, as a maker of illicit whiskey, but he bad an inner feeling that, above all else, he should protect the rights of his sister and force, if necessary, her husband to a fair and proper treatment of her. There was to be a dance that night in the settlement and Jack Stone intended to go. He knew that Sergeant Smith, of the R.M.P., the husband of his sister, Julia, had been making secret love to Tess of the Hills. While under suspicion, there was no absolute evidence against Jack, and consequently, the police were unable to place him under arrest when he appeared at the ball. Here he made love to the beautiful Tess and she willingly received his attention. Jack left the dance with Tess. Later, Stone and Tess were accosted in the forest by Sergeant Smith.

Not as powerful as some previous offerings
31 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel story of the great Canadian out-of-doors, which gets up a fair degree of interest, although not as powerful as some previous offerings along this line. The scenes in which the lieutenant neglects his wife for the girl of the hills, and Jack interferes, lead gradually up to the stronger situations. Jack, charged with dealing in contraband whiskey, is pursued two days through woods and mountains, and the two finally meet in a revolver duel in which both are seriously injured. Jack dies and the mountain girl is left alone. The closing scenes are very melodramatic. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
