Storyline

The Federal authorities receive advices concerning the operations of a clever diamond smuggler and Jim Meyers is instructed to make an investigation. A foreign dealer comes under the detective's observation, but Meyers is unable to fix definite suspicion on any of the customers. Meyers does not permit himself to become discouraged and embarks on an ocean vessel, which, he is led to believe, has the smuggler as a passenger. While promenading, he notices a porter shining a young lady's shoes. A peculiar accident brings to his notice the fact that the heel of one of the shoes has an unusual appearance. Determined to follow every possible clue, he bides his time and locates the girl's stateroom. Later Meyers succeeds in entering the room and discovers the shoes. His suspicions are confirmed when he finds several large diamonds concealed in one of the heels, but the unexpected entrance of the fair passenger's maid causes him to change his plans and he pretends that he has entered the room ...

It is not a convincing picture
8 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture with many scenes on shipboard and that has, for its chief interest, a duel of wits between a crafty woman smuggler (Alice Hollister) and a detective. The man is deceived and suspects not the maid, but the mistress, who is entirely innocent and ignorant of the real character of her servant. To end the picture, after the smugglers have been brought to justice, with a love story is, of course, conventional; many people seem to like such an ending. It is not a convincing picture and, therefore, does not affect us deeply. The photography is only fair. - The Moving Picture World, August 2, 1913
