Jacob Cohen, who owns a dry goods store, and Patrick Kelly, an Irish cop, are constantly at loggerheads, feuding over anything and everything. Kelly's son, Tim, and Cohen's daughter, Nannie, fall in love despite the bickering of their parents; when they cannot get parental consent for their marriage, they secretly wed. Cohen inherits a fortune and moves to the upper East Side, taking Nannie with him. Sometime later, Nannie gives birth to a child; when her parents will not let any of the Kelly clan see the child, Nannie leaves home and goes to live with the Kellys, where Mrs. Cohen soon joins her. Cohen then discovers that Kelly is the rightful heir to the fortune that he himself has inherited and, moved by honesty, he goes to the burly cop and tells him so. The men are reconciled and decide to go into partnership together.
