Clifford's revolver, with his name inscribed on the butt, is found outside the window. Clifford is arrested on this evidence, combined with other evidence of less importance, tried and convicted. It is a tragic moment when he is condemned to die, for he loves the daughter of the man he is accused of murdering. Another man, an employee of the dead man, who seeks to marry the daughter for her money, was really back of the killing. He it was who urged an Indian to shoot Clifford, his rival. But the Indian, being drunk at the time, mixes the men and shoots the employer. On the day of the execution Alice, the daughter, is drifting down the river in a canoe when she observes an Indian swept over the rapids. She rescues the Indian in a dying condition, and he confesses that he shot her father. They are miles from the county seat where the execution of Clifford is taking place. She drags the Indian to an automobile and the race with death begins. The villain has learned of the Indian's confession and intercepts the girl. While one of her henchmen is fighting off the villain, the girl escapes with the Indian to a logging flume, which carries timber to the county seat. She constructs an impromptu boat and resumes the race to the gallows. The villain gets possession of the automobile and races in the same direction. While dashing wildly over a precipitous mountain road, the steering knuckle of the machine breaks and the machine and occupant dash into an abyss. At the scaffold the crowd awaits the moment when the death trap will fall. There is a commotion when Alice and the Indian enter. The execution is stayed a moment. Alice drags the Indian to the sheriff to hear his confession. Clifford is liberated and declared innocent. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
