Ben, to shield Tim, who recently has robbed the miser of his hoard and therefore appears guilty, does not deny the charge Pelham has put upon him, though he escapes to another town. Tim is arrested by order of the district attorney, and a posse is sent after Ben, who is found and taken into custody by the sheriff. Meanwhile, Pelham has contrived to find in Pike's house certain incriminating papers, which for years the miser has held against him and used as a threat. He tells Laurel, Pike's daughter, that the papers will convict Ben Rolfe, whom she loves. The next day, however, at the inquest, the evidence being sifted thoroughly, Pelham breaks down and confesses. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
