Pemberton and Denine have fired the emergency flares and boarded the Madison, a steamship carrying munitions to Charleston. When asked by Captain Anderson why they stopped a government ship, the two men claim that the captain’s sister June sent them for the oilskin package that she gave to him. The package is in a safe in the captain’s cabin. Anderson asks if June gave them written proof that she sent the men.
Good question but of course she didn’t, so Pemberton pulls a gun on Captain Anderson as he and Denine lead him into the cargo hold, which is full of gun powder, bullets and explosives. They tie up the captain and use some TNT to cause an explosion on board the Madison. Pemberton and Denine escape as the crew abandons ship. Suddenly some of the crew realize that Captain Anderson is still aboard the Madison.
The rest of the Madison’s crew sees the captain’s lifeboat as Superman returns to the flaming ship to find the oilskin package that can incriminate Pemberton and Denine.
