Storyline

John Ward, a political boss, has been nick-named "The Wasp," because of his power to sting his opponents. He is in deadly contest with Charles Melvin, independent candidate for governor. Melvin has a son, Hal, a fine looking and manly fellow, who is engaged to Clara Clark, a beautiful society girl. Melvin has a clean record, but he is the target for "The Wasp," who opposes him politically. "The Wasp" plans with unscrupulous hirelings to injure Melvin's candidacy by ruining the reputation of Hal, who has made such a thing possible by his big-hearted charity, and his visits to the tenement occupied by old man Collins and his daughter, Marie, who has made the mistake of loving not wisely, but too well. Dick Little, Secret Service operative, aided by Ruth Cahill, thwarts the plot. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A good man's picture
13 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Typifying the extreme and dishonest methods a "political boss" will utilize to ruin the opposition candidate in the minds of the voters. Guy Oliver, as Dick Little, secret service operative, and Stella Razeto, as his sweetheart, do some good work in thwarting the plot of "The Wasp" (George Hernandez), who is certainly ideal in type and action; the other characters are well sustained. This is a good man's picture. - The Moving Picture World, November 14, 1914
