  • While conversing with Jean, Patrolman Kerrigan sees Bat Dorgan insult a girl. The officer interferes and learns that the girl is his own daughter. In his anger, he manhandles the gangster and places him under arrest. Dorgan's henchmen, however, heave bricks at the patrolman from the housetops and fell him. The prisoner escapes. When Dorgan is about to enter his home that night, he is throttled into insensibility. Jean is assigned to run the assailant down. Kerrigan informs the Girl Detective that the culprit had an anchor tattooed on his right hand. Suspecting Dorgan, Jean has Talcott, her new assistant, disguise as an English fop. Talcott visits the dive patronized by the Dorgan gang. The money he flashes causes several of the gangsters to invite him to play poker in their den. Talcott consents and deliberately loses. Dorgan is one of the players. Later, Jean boldly visits the place and is made prisoner. Talcott and a force of officers come to the rescue. The gangsters put un a vicious battle. To Jean falls the honor of capturing Dorgan. She is non-plussed, however, to find his hand devoid of tattooing. About to make her departure, Jean's eyes fall upon a bottle of India ink and a fine brush standing on the washstand. Thus cornered, Dorgan confesses his guilt.
