Storyline

Wun Lung and Mary Murphy are business rivals, both running laundries. Lung does fairly well, but Mary gets the best of the game, as the policeman naturally would work for his countrywoman. Then Mandy Jackson opens another "white as snow" laundry and Lung and Mary hold a conference of war, united against the colored lady. Mrs. Murphy reads the papers and gets much knowledge of the advantages of the big laundry trusts and, with the co-operation of Lung, she organizes a trust. They scoop in all of the washerwomen of the neighborhood and boom prices. The scheme is a big success; the new acquisitions are proud of the institution and work hard, while "the trust" sits at ease and bosses things. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
