Storyline

This film is not sensational in any respect, being purely of a topical nature. The prison at Sberbrooke, Canada, is first shown, followed rapidly by scenes showing crowds refused admittance to the trial, immigration officials waiting to take Thaw by force over the border. Justice Hutchinson, William Travers Jerome, Thaw's auto held in readiness for escape, sympathizers, Joseph La Force, governor of the prison; United States Consul Daniels calling on Thaw at his request to be protected as an American citizen. Thaw eating, planning his day's work, thinking of his mother. Hal Reid interviewing him, his going over daily correspondence, his giving a letter to Reid to deliver to Bryan, and explaining why he was on his way to Canada when he escaped. The single reel concludes with a closeup picture of the prisoner. The film is offensive in no way, and is interesting as a rational view of a much-talked-of person. Written by review by K, The New York Dramatic Mirror, October 8, 1913, page 30.
