The old man shows his young partner a picture and, remarking: "My daughter. I promised to send for her as soon as 1 struck it," he writes the glorious news to the girl. Benson, a half-witted prospector, tries to jump the claim, but is warned off by Deal. He spies on Carson and learns where the gold dust is hidden. In a lonely spot he holds up the man and hurls him down a cliff. Carson is found by a rancher, who summons Deal. The old man is borne to the cabin. Benson, having found on Carson's body a note from his daughter, goes to the station, meets the girl, and tells her that her father has been killed by his partner. He works on her feelings until she takes his pistol and goes alone to the cabin. "When you hear a shot, you will know I have avenged my father," she says. At the cabin she learns the true state of affairs, fires a shot, and decoys Benson into her father's room, where he is captured. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
