The film offers several novel situations
A story of Western life which represents in a graphic way the peculiar code of honor that was observed among thieves and outlaws. To have a prisoner go to bed and know that he would be there the next morning is unusual to Eastern ways of doing, but that has actually occurred more than once out in the open. The gambling sheriff is a character who had many counterparts in the days that are gone. To see the thief come down and rob the keeper of the gambling house for the benefit of the sheriff is also unusual, but all the more interesting for that reason. In short, the film offers several novel situations. No one is sorry when the sheriff turns the prisoner loose after exacting from him a promise to do better in the future. - The Moving Picture World, November 19, 1910
