Storyline

Don Daris, a newspaper reporter, fails to provide any "live copy" and is consequently in disfavor with his editor. Don goes to call on Daisy, the daughter of a tugboat captain, and the irascible father orders the young man from the wharf. Daisy tells Don that if he will hide on the "Ruth E" on the trip about to be made he will secure material for a big story. In the meantime, Anita, a Spanish girl spy, determines to learn the destination of the tug. Through a hazardous subterfuge she discovers that the craft is carrying arms and ammunition for the Cuban insurrectos. This information she imparts to the Spaniards, who set out in pursuit of the tugboat. The Spaniards arrive on the scene while the boat is landing the contraband goods and Don and Daisy, through a clever ruse, succeed in blowing up their pursuers' boat.

If only a bit more care had been used, it would have been a crack-a-jack
14 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A good picture, at least in so far as it is a romance it is good. As a story of adventure it is fair: but if only a bit more care had been used, it would have been a crack-a-jack. It is a story of how a young newspaper reporter got a good account of a filibustering expedition to Cuba. He was in love with the daughter of the tug's captain. A Spanish spy gives her people warning of this tug's coming and there's a fight at the beach; but the reporter, with the girl's help, saves the tug and the captain gives his consent to the match. The heroine, yes and the whole cast were very fortunately chosen. The picture seems to have been taken in Florida and is instructive as well as entertaining. It is well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, July 20, 1912
