Only two men want to marry Lillian Christy in this movie, which I would find incredible, but there are only two men and a couple of extras. When she chooses the cowhand, the wealthy Mexican padrone kidnaps her, leaving Walter Kerrigan to pursue and rescue her. You can watch this fine American Film western short on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
Although Gilbert Hamilton is credited as director, a lot of the credit goes to the unnamed cameraman, who frames the close-ups delightfully in the advanced style of the era. There are no iris shots -- they would not fall out out of style until the 1920s, but were a simplistic means of focusing the film watcher's attention. Instead, the cameraman uses background and compositional shapes to gain our attention. Notice the composition in the corral, with the building and fences restricting the field of vision and focusing attention on the main actors in the foreground.
