Storyline

An Italian owning a performing bear gets behind in his rent, and the collector becomes vehement in his demands. The bear comes to his master's aid and chases the collector out. Terrified, the man runs to the police station and returns with a squad of bluecoats who proceed to arrest the Italian, and again the faithful bear takes a hand, or rather a paw, in the proceedings, with the result that the brave guardians of the peace are soon flying down the road toward the station house with bruin in close pursuit. The men tumble into the station and take refuge in a cell, and the bear follows them, nearly scaring the desk sergeant to death, and, standing on its haunches faces the scared policemen, who are content to bravely stand their ground behind the bars until the Italian comes and leads his pet away.
