Storyline

Young Bill Reid is given a position at the bank of William Stuyvesant, whose daughter Ruth he loves. Ralph Stuyvesant, the banker's son, is in love with vamp Grace Andrews and is supporting her in luxury. To meet Grace's extravagant demands, Ralph forges his father's name to a check, but suspicion for the crime is thrown on Reid by Tom Burnett, who wants to marry Ruth for her money. At a ball thrown by Stuyvesant, the banker is murdered by Burnett when the former accuses him of theft. Burnett and Ralph again contrive to throw the blame on Reid, who is convicted of the murder on circumstantial evidence and sentenced to death. Through Ruth's tireless efforts and the assistance of the chief of detectives, Reid escapes and the real criminals are brought to justice. Written by Pamela Short
