A love story is neatly woven in
A two-reel political story with some unusual features in it. Matt Moore plays the part of a young man who grows up in a poor factory district. He runs for the state Legislature as sponsor for the Workingmen's Compensation Act, and is elected to office. Pictures of the State House at Columbus, O., are shown, also of Governor Cox, of Ohio, and other state officials. The pictures were taken during the actual passage of the act. A love story is also neatly woven into the production. Dorothy Phillips playing the girl. This is a political story with a fresh turn to it and is on the whole very entertaining. - The Moving Picture World, November 21, 1914
