|Plot||After having done a little newspaper work on the side, John Bunny applies to the editor of a provincial paper for a regular position on his staff. The editor, as a try-out, gives him a somewhat difficult assignment. Bunny is told to "cover" the secret suffrage meeting. Figuring that it would be impossible for a man to get in, Bunny disguises himself as a woman and arrives at the hall, announces that he brings greetings from a distant organization. He is enthusiastically received, being embraced by almost everyone present. After the principal has finished her oration, the visitor is called on to speak. Bunny rises and his remarks are greeted with cheers. All goes well until he notices the doorkeeper turning the key. Thinking he is trapped, Bunny in his fright drops his hand bag. His manner of picking it up discloses his sex and immediately the meeting is in an uproar. The door being locked, the reporter is unable to escape that way, but after considerable difficulty, he manages to get out of the window. An exciting chase follows across the lots, Bunny shedding various garments on the way. He eludes his pursuers by climbing a tree, hot after a time they locate him and none of the women has the courage to climb after him. Their leader, however, is seized by a brilliant idea. Rushing to a nearby house she gets an axe and with the help of the others, hews down the tree. Bunny's pleas for mercy are of no avail. At the point of a hatpin he is obliged to confess his penitence and make a vow of silence. He is retained as a prisoner of war, and still wearing his borrowed plumage, forms a highly decorative exhibit on a float in the triumphant militant suffragettes' parade.... search for Bunny as a Reporter on IMDb|
