Burton is plainly infatuated with Nedda and in a diplomatic office Nedda manages by a clever ruse to obtain possession of the cipher code book. Burton discovers his loss and he tracks Nedda to a rendezvous with Noji by a ruined mill, just as Nedda is telling the Japanese how she has fooled Burton, Ned breaks in the door and endeavors to gain possession of the book. He is attacked and in the struggle the lamp is overturned and the mill is in flames. Burton is struck down by Noji and he is left to die in the flames. By a superhuman effort he manages to escape and tracks the conspirators as they are leaving their hotel en route to Japan. Burton follows their automobile and while in transit manages to jump on the machine, opens their package, securing the coveted book, and leaves a dummy in its place. The conspirators arrive in Japan to claim their reward from the government, when, to their intense surprise, they discover that the supposed code book has been substituted by a useless one.
