Storyline

Billy Young, an athletic young bank clerk in love with Marion Wendell the president's daughter, and his young friend Jack Skyes, while walking home from work one night, accidentally encounter an old panhandler on the street corner. Billy is about to give the old man a dime when he recognizes in him his old athletic instructor. Billy bids his friend goodnight and proceeds to a nearby restaurant where he proceeds to treat his old trainer. The restaurant is of a low character and in the poor neighborhood. While eating, Marion Wendell and her friend, Kate Sommers, a mission worker, enter and distribute some tracts among the young girls who are drinking at the tables. The bouncer and waiter try to throw the "reformers" out into the street, but this is too much for Billy and old Reynolds. They make short work of the bouncer and waiter and safely escort the girls to the street, where they part. The two restaurant ruffians follow Billy and his friend and on a dark side street overtake them ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The story, as conducted, is unusually weak
10 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture shows a very good wrestling match which is excellently photographed. It is a love and friendship story, but we don't see where the brotherhood comes in. It shows how the winner of the match went into it to help along his old trainer, who needed money. The story, as conducted, is unusually weak. We fear to begin criticizing it, but the match is fine, is one of the best contests we have ever seen and, because of this, we heartily commend the picture. It is clean and wholesome and will serve very well as a drawing feature in the right locality on account of the wrestling match solely. - The Moving Picture World, March 23, 1912
