Jack Alger and Margaret Durand are very much in love with each other. Wallace Hardy, shrewd and calculating, has made up his mind to make Margaret his wife at all odds. He has the advantage of Mr. Durand's respect for his business ability, while Jack is only a clerk in the employ of Mr. Durand. Margaret's father receives an urgent demand to pay a note for $50,000. This he is unable to do and Hardy offers to loan it, with the understanding that he can have Margaret. She demurs and declares her love for Jack, who is immediately discharged. Hardy is triumphant and Margaret defiant. Jack loses no time in securing a position as a railroad employee, making himself generally useful at one of the way stations. Hardy insists upon marrying Margaret at once and her father, with his daughter and his would-be son-in-law, start for the parson's in Mr. Durand's automobile. At the crossing near the railroad station where Jack is employed, the automobile becomes fractious. Jack sees Margaret and while Hardy and her father go for gasoline, she tells Jack of her father's plan. Jack glances at a hand car standing nearby and proposes an elopement. Immediately he and his fellow workmen lift the car on the track, Mary takes her place with Jack at the handles and they are off. Durand and Hardy jump into the automobile and the chase is on. The two elopers speed the hand car down the track, keeping slightly in advance. For miles it is nip and tuck, until they come to a trestle over which the hand car spins. The pursuers are obliged to make a long cut around the railroad and find themselves underneath the crossing. At a safe distance from the point where they left their followers, the elopers meet a minister on horseback. They press him into service, take him on the hand car gliding along at a fifty-mile rate, and are married. Hardy, with Mr. Durand, meet them further down the track, but too late. They have lost, Jack has won. After a little coaxing Margaret brings her father over to her side and the newly wedded couple receive his blessing.
