Storyline

The cub reporter loved the owner's daughter. He learns by chance of a plot to sell the paper's power by the managing editor to a pair of crooked contractors. The owner refuses to listen to his discovery, but the girl does and believes him. Together they plan to force the owner to take some action. The dinner at the owner's house is spoilt by the girl who compels them to dine in a private room at Muscveys, where the managing editor has an appointment with the contractors. The cub plants a dictograph in the room where the contractors are and puts the receiver in the room where the owner and his party are ushered. Their entire conversation is heard by the owner. The cub is dragged from the fire escape where he has been concealed; a terrible fight ensues; the police are called in and the managing editor and his crooked friends are taken into custody. The cub is rewarded with the managing editor's position and the girl's hand. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
