As described in a review of the film in a film magazine, Terence O’Toole (Hines) leaves his old home in Ireland to seek his fortune in America. He becomes "Conductor 1492" on a trolley car belonging to a system which both the president and vice-president are struggling to gain control. The final outcome of this fight depends on two shares of stock which are missing and which if not found will bring disgrace to President Connelly. The villain produces two forged shares but Johnny’s father saves the day by producing the real shares, which he bought a number of years before. In the meantime Terence has fallen in love with Connelly’s daughter and he gets her as his reward.
