The acting team of Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Bayne (who also became a romantic team in real life) was still new when this three-reeler was produced. Rough and tumble Alaskan John Landon (Bushman) is the president of the valuable Nugget Gold Mine Corporation. When he goes to the city, Nicholas Channing (Frank Dayton) sees him as a way to make back his lost fortune. Landon has fallen in love with Channing's daughter, Loyal (Bayne), and for her father's sake, the girl marries him. As a wedding gift, Landon gives Loyal shares in his company, which she hands over to her father. Channing and his son Arthur (Bryant Washburn) sell these shares on the street in a wildcat scheme. When the worth of Landon's company goes into a slump, he discovers that Channing is the cause and confronts him. The exposure causes Channing to have a stroke and he dies. Loyal blames Landon for her father's death and the couple separate. Landon returns to Alaska, alone, and Loyal discovers that she loves him after all. When Arthur explains that their father was really the one at fault, she travels to Alaska where she and Landon are reconciled.
