Cast & Crew
Mason, a young New York gentleman who is good with his fists, runs for public office under the terms of an agreement that forbids him to fight during the pre-election period. During this time, his rich uncle comes east and soon expresses great disappointment in Mason, who refuses to fight after the worst of provocations and insults. During a political speech in the gashouse district, Mason is set upon by a gang of ruffians, and he runs for his life. The brutes then attack Mason's girl, however, and Mason quickly shows them what getting hit by a ton of bricks feels like. Mason later wins the election, marries the girl, and gains the affection of his wealthy uncle.
