Sledge (Dustin Farnum) is the political boss of a small town. While he is working to establish a new street car line, he falls in love with Molly Marley (Patsy Ruth Miller), the daughter of the owner of the existing line (Sidney deGrey). Because of his love for the girl, he doesn't ruin Marley's business, which was his original intention. The tough politico finds he has romantic opposition in Bert Gilder (George Webb). Although Molly is impressed with Sledge's power and forceful personality, she thinks he is crude and decides to marry Gilder. Sledge kidnaps her in an attempt to stop her, but he decides to let her go. Molly discovers, however, that Gilder is a no-good scoundrel, and she realizes that Sledge is the man she should marry.
