Bob Fenway, the only son of Gov. Adele Fenway, is engaged to Marian Lee, and at a dinner Adele announces her intention of giving them a wedding house. Having refused to support a water power bill endorsed by Jim Dornton, the political boss of the state, the governor is threatened. Through Snipe Collins, Dornton discovers that Adele's deceased husband was previously married and that his first wife claims the divorce was not legal. Confronted with the evidence by Dornton, the governor turns to Richard Palmer for aid, but he is unable to find the divorce papers. Bob goes to the Athletic Club to force Dornton's apology; and Snipe Collins, in a fight with Blake, one of Dornton's men, kills him while he (Collins) is to inform the governor by telephone of Dornton's treachery. Unaware of the act, Bob returns home and is arrested for murder. At the trial Mrs. Fenway makes a plea for his innocence and is unable to pardon him when she is impeached by Dornton's scheming; but Old Lem, having overheard incriminating evidence, brings it to bear against Collins.
