Storyline

Mr. Bullington is elected Mayor of his town. His wife receives a letter from her maiden aunt Minerva, saying that she is coming to visit them. She asks them besides a bedroom, to give her some place to use as an office, as she has business to transact. They fix up an old store-room for her. One of the chief "planks" on which Bullington has been elected, is his strong opposition to votes for women. He is horror-stricken to find that Minerva is an ardent advocate of female suffrage. She holds meetings in his house, upbraids him for his principles, and threatens to cut him and his wife out of her will, if he does not sustain her cause and patronize her meetings. He yields and at once gets himself into hot water. Mr. Balder and Mr. Carter call on him to demand his resignation, but Bullington has the happy thought to turn Minerva on them. She talks them nearly dead, and ends by capturing both to speak in favor of female suffrage at her next meeting. Bullington retains his place as Mayor. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

W.L. Tremayne, the author, deserves good credit
19 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The best of this picture is its many freshly human characters, but it also has a fine comedy situation behind it and tickled the audience much. Bunny is the mayor, not in favor of woman suffrage; Harry Morey, another politician, is a sort of boss: Charles Eldridge, a lesser political light, would like to make speeches, but is always pulled back to his seat. Aunt Minerva (Flora Finch) comes on a visit to Bunny's wife (Julia S. Gordon) and makes suffragists of them all. The conversion of the boss and his henchmen is fine. W.L. Tremayne, the author, deserves good credit, as does the director, Frederick Thomson. The photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
