Storyline

Officer Dooley falls in love with a pretty little housemaid, only to find that Mike Doyle, the plumber, has won her consent to marriage. Dooley swears they shall never become man and wife, and so schemes to prevent it. On the day of the wedding, Dooley meets Doyle and has him locked up on a fake charge. The bride is very much upset at Doyle's non-arrival, and through pique, accepts Dooley. The marriage is about to take place, when Doyle rushes up, he having been released by an influential friend, denounces Dooley, and orders the ceremony to proceed, with him, Doyle, as the bridegroom.

The picture has a very funny and laughable situation
21 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Dooley was an Irish cop on the beat and he was in love with the pretty cook, who preferred the plumber. She was wearing the plumber's ring and the day was set for the wedding, but Dooley wasn't the Irish cop to give anything he wanted up merely because he was invited to. He waited till the plumber was on his way to the wedding, then he barred his way and insulted him. The plumber struck Dooley, who was in uniform. That was what he wanted. Dooley at once took him up and put him behind the bars. How Dooley then supplanted the plumber in the girl's affections and led her as far as the church, and how the plumber, with the aid of a friend in politics, saved the day, makes a very amusing comedy. The picture has a very funny and laughable situation and is well acted. - The Moving Picture World, November 25, 1911
