Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Ashton Kirk (Arnold Daly, who also directed) is a wealthy and studious young man. He also enjoys solving mysteries that have baffled the police. The murder of an American surgeon, Dr. Morse (Sheldon Lewis), is one of his cases. Dr. Morse, it turns out, was involved with the Russian Army and had obtained a secret treaty between Russia and the U.S. which was once in the possession of Count Drevenoff. The Japanese spy system has desperately been trying to get hold of these papers, which could ruin relations between its country and America. Through his astute work, Ashton Kirk manages to get the treaty himself and prevents a war from breaking out.
