Chief of Police Ivorytop and Chief of Detectives Sherlock Bonehead, of Rottenport, fall in love with Helen, a girl from the city.

This individual leaps into a rowboat containing Helen and compels the girl to row the boat toward the other side of the stream. Leaping into another boat, Ivorytop, Bonehead and the police force take up the pursuit. Mere landlubbers, ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
