In quelling a mutiny among the sailors who are in the, pay of the gun runner, Clayton, the captain is forced to shoot the ring-; leader, thus gaining the contempt' of Clayton's abused wife, with whom he. is secretly in love. This silent love for' the woman prevents him from, denouncing the gun runner when the ship docks, and defending himself when he is accused of manslaughter on the high seas and sentenced to the native prison. He makes his escape and swims to a point across the bay which is infested by a gang of beach combers. By whipping , their leader into subjection he becomes the acknowl edged master of the band, and la ter has an opportunity to use his murderous subjects to save the American consulate and refugees from the fierce attaclr of tbe rebels. In the end Barstow finds opportu nity to redeem himself in the eyes of the world and the woman he loves. Beautiful scenes at sea, a raging storm on tbe deep, a terrific fight in the waters of the Pacific and a hundred other unusual .scenes add to tbe effectiveness of this feature. rasa imtranm - .SpeiiqerlStiuare Sz8 TOMGHT LAST TIME TO SEE THI8 GREAT PICTrRE '. 1 - I "THE LITTLE SHEPHERD OF KINGDOM COME" EE-- " Story by' John Fox, with Jack Pickford' and a wonderful cast '!
