Storyline

The celebrated Biograph sleuths again almost catch the real criminals. However, they make a wholesale arrest and are self-satisfied. The vice committee engages their services in getting evidence against a certain gambling parlor. They, with their usual bungling, let the gamblers escape and arrest instead the entire vice committee, who, as a last resource, make the raid themselves, seizing the gambling paraphernalia. Hence, the sleuths, finding them in possession of the goods, arrest them as the gamblers. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
