The "maguffin" in this three-reel Gaumont melodrama is an incriminating phonograph record (unheard, of course, since this was a silent picture). Two rival recording companies struggle to land the first patent to send recorded messages over Marconi's "wireless" device (and this was before radio was invented!). Entering into the rivalry is a prominent inventor, who discovers that his far-from-faithful assistant plans to steal the blueprints of his revolutionary recording device. The inventor cries out "You, Gaston, would rob me!" -- just before lapsing into a catatonic trance. As luck would have it, however, the inventor's accusation has been recorded by his new invention, and it is this transcription which seals the doom of the treacherous assistant.
