This Kalem two-reeler was a spoof of the he-man melodramas then in vogue. Hero Luke owns a profitable salt mackerel mine (whatever that is). The villain plots to steal both the mine and Luke's sweetheart. He instructs his minions to bump off Luke, then holds the heroine in thrall with all manner of threatening imprecations. But Luke escapes his fate, pummels the villain, and rescues the girl. And no one ever explains how a salt mackerel could possibly be "mined." Variety tersely compared the film to a typical Keystone comedy of two or three years earlier.
