Storyline

The household of Senator Walker consists of himself, his ward, Mary, and his nephew, Herbert. The other members of his household are John, an old servant, Lucy the maid, and a half dozen more servants. John is smitten with Lacy. She doesn't take him seriously, owing to the difference in their ages. Mr. Walker, rather old and feeble, draws up his will and leaves the bulk of his property to Mary and Herbert. He bequeaths $5,000 to his faithful servant John. Herbert is very fond of his uncle. The old gentleman is very much attached to Mary and very desirous that she and Herbert should be wed at the proper time. John is anxious to make Lucy his wife, and learning he is one of the beneficiaries in the will, he is very anxious to get possession of the money, hoping it will induce Lucy to become his wife. He is so possessed with this thought that it grows to be a mania and he murders Mr. Walker. Herbert is arrested for the crime, a knife belonging to him being found near his uncle's body. ...
