Barry Price, cub reporter at the Morning Sun , is assigned to assist Jim Rogers in getting a story from Edward Fletcher regarding the merger of Fletcher's and Stowe's firms. When Rogers fails to get aboard Fletcher's yacht, Barry feigns drowning and obtains the interview. Rogers is discharged, and his daughter Myra, secretary to Stowe, although she knows of the consolidation plans, cannot divulge them to her father. Barry--then assigned to interview Stowe, who dislikes reporters--assumes the guise of a butler and learns that written proof is to be found in the house safe, but he finds that Stowe's nephew Fordney, who is in debt, and Myra, who hopes to help her father, are after the papers. Stowe steals the papers, however, but Barry and Myra follow him and recover them. Rogers is given back his job, and Barry and Myra are happily united.
