Storyline

The drunkard is stopped on a street comer, and told the evil of his ways by a Salvation Army girl. He jeers at her warning and enters the next saloon. A fight takes place, in which the drunkard strikes a man down. Believing that he has killed the man, he makes his escape to a railroad yard, where he goes to sleep in a box car. His imagination inflamed over his crime, he dreams that the police are on his trail. There follows a long chase, over the tops of buildings, through rivers and by train, which terminates in his capture. He is condemned to die, and led to the gallows. An instant before the death-trap is sprung he awakens to find himself in the box car. His conscience is aroused, and he sees plainly the disastrous trend of his life. He returns to the saloon and finds the man he struck down is recovered. He seeks out the Salvation Army girl, repents, and is taken into the ranks of that organization.
