~Plot Synopsis~
John Sloval, a New York subway guard, would like to marry his daughter, Sophie, to Philip Hurd, a Coney
Island concessionaire, but she is in love with Bill Hedges, son of an upstate dairy farmer. Sloval arranges
a wedding in exchange for a quarter interest in the concession, but preparations are interrupted when he
falls off a subway platform and is nearly run over by a train. A newspaper capitalizes on the old man's
injury to bring subway reform and to promote its candidate. Sloval goes to campaign headquarters after
the newspaper's candidate is elected to find that they merely used him for campaign fodder. Dejected, he
returns home to find Sophie and Bill, newly married, inviting him to become assistant manager at the
dairy farm.
