Sources for the early films I've added:

The Story of Treasure Island (1908): Run time 855 ft. [https://archive.org/stream/MPW02-1908-03#page/n69]

Ben's Kid (1909): This is probably Roscoe Arbuckle's first appearance in a movie, at least the first confirmed. The amount of available info about Ben's Kid is not overwhelming. However, an issue of Moving Picture World from 1909 [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviwor04chal_0903] gives a thorough (very thorough) description of the entire movie. They mention a character called "Fatty Carter," hence my guesswork as to what role Arbuckle played. It is, however, just a guess, and if other information unbeknownst to me should be available, do change my edit with all speed.

The run time for Ben's Kid is also to be found in a Moving Picture World issue [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviewor05chal0148]. It is listed at a 1000 feet, roughly equaling 11 minutes, give or take the speed projected. Plot details for Ben's Kid are taken from here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviwor04chal0903].

Mrs. Jones' Birthday (1909): Run time here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviewor05chal0330]. Same thing with the feets above. Plot details here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviewor05chal0386].

The Sanitarium (1910): Feet and tag line here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviwor07chal0779], plot details here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/moviwor07chal0948].

A Voice from the deep (1912): Plot details here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/movingpicturewor11newy1032], feet length here [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/motography78elec0213]. Alas! Poor Yorick!: I'm unable to find the source for the feet length, alas (heh). However, it's a splitreeler according to [http://lantern.mediahist.org/catalog/movingpicturewor16movi_0304].

If better sources are available, do correct my edits!

Film speeds have been calculated at [http://www.panavision.co.nz/main/kbase/reference/calcfootage.asp and https://www.kodak.com/gb/en/motion/tools/film_calculator/default.htm]. The film type for these early films are often 35mm (as sources not listed above tells me. silentera.com for instance). The speed, however, varies quite a bit.
