Inside a coffee house, an ensign, his broken sword lying on the ground, is held against the wall by a man with a hot poker. Another ensign, attempting to stub the man with the poker in the back, is held back by another customer and a waiter. The scene is watched by a few alarmed customers, a parson reading a paper, and an upset young woman behind the bar
