Donald Naughton ( Jack Livingston ), the lazy son of a self-made millionaire named Bill Naughton ( J. Barney Sherry ), is sent to his father's rock quarries to replace the crooked superintendent, Mike Carney ( Louis Durham ). The job at first proves difficult for Don, who does not know how to handle the rock drillers, but is made somewhat more pleasant by the presence of Shiela Dolan ( Margery Wilson ), the pretty daughter of Naughton's old friend Jim Lynch ( Jack Curtis ), an alcoholic. Don hires a new gang of workmen, but they prove to be anarchists secretly in Carney's employ. The young boss earns the respect of the regular hands by beating Jerry Shea ( Aaron Edwards ) in a fight, but Carney and his partner, Greek Louis ( Thornton Edwards ), succeed in stirring up a strike. After Don and his men defeat Carney's agitators in a brawl, Don saves Carney from a lynch mob. The men return to work with a new respect for their boss, and Don wins Shiela's love.
