Excited about Bartholdi's statue gifted to the United States, Joseph Pulitzer is outraged to hear its placement on Bedloe's Island is $100,000 short. He sends his reporter, Mr. Goddard, to discover what can be done about raising the necessary funding. When an appeal the the United States government fails, Pulitzer takes it upon himself to place a call for funding in his newspapers.
