Grant is detailed by his city editor to interview Major Russelle, just returned from Panama, about an attempt made by foreign spies to steal from him the plans of the canal's fortifications. The spies ingratiate themselves into the favor of the Major's wife and tempt her with a gorgeous necklace which she desires but is unable to pay for. When Grant calls for his interview he has an opportunity to see which way the wind is blowing, and the next day when he sees the Major's wife descend in the hotel elevator and learns from the clerk that she has visited the spies' apartments, his suspicions are aroused. He returns to the Major's home and insists that the Major open his private safe to see if the plans are still there. They are missing.

Action is fast
2 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This reel, an episode in the "Grant, Police Reporter" series, shows the reporter, George Larkin, in more daring stunts. Pursuing spies who have stole Panama Canal plans, he first makes a flying leap to the rope ladder hanging from the stern of a steamer, and later leaps from the high stern into the water. The story told on the screen is interesting. Action is fast. The reporter this time is fired because he refuses to give the new city editor a story told him in confidence. But he gets his job back after he recovers the plans and gets a better story. In the cast with George Larkin are Ollie Kirkby, Director Robert Ellis, Harry Gordon and Cyril Courtney. - The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1917
