Based on the novel The Fighter by Albert Payson Terhune (New York, 1909).
Following the death of her father, Dey Shevlin becomes the ward of Caleb Conover, a railroad president. His enemy Jimmy Blacardo induces a country club's officials to challenge his right to membership in the organization; Dey persuades him to fight back, and he defeats his accusers. Newspapers then reveal a scandal involving the late Tom Shevlin's shady dealings, and though Conover takes the blame, Dey accuses him of using her father as a shield. In a mountain retreat, she discovers the truth from Caine, and Conover comes to her declaring his love, then returns to fight his enemies. When he hears later that Dey has drowned in a canoe accident, Conover banishes the doctor from the room and restores the girl by mental effort. He returns to the city on a locomotive that falls through a burning bridge, but he survives to triumph over his enemies.
