- Hope Delayne is the daughter of an English merchant who has settled in a little frontier town for the purpose of rescuing his brother, who has been unjustly banished to the mines. When he is almost ready to make the attempt, they learn that the prisoner has escaped, and it is feared that he will perish in the forest. At the same time, Hope's Russian friend becomes implicated in the smuggling of gold across the border into Chinese territory.
