Storyline

To attract custom to his mountain resort, old man Heber buys a tame bear, Pansy, whose tracks in the woods enable him to advertise "Bear Hunting at Heber's." Among the resultant guests is Simon B. Hanamaker, a politician, who is worried over the coming election. He surprises Helen, Heber's daughter, petting the bear. He plans a hoax that he thinks will elect him, buys the bear, puts it in a cave and hires a moving picture man to photograph him in the act of killing the "savage" animal. Helen plans to save Pansy, and gets some mountaineers to place a wild bear in the cave. As Hanamaker appears to do battle, the bear rushes out and stampedes the whole outfit. The camera man stays long enough to get a good picture of Hanamaker in full flight, and, disgusted with him, he refuses his money and sells the film to the opposition. They use it at a Hanamaker meeting and the outcome is most ludicrous. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
