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.
