Ebenezer Royce (Walt Whitman) hires Martin (Jack Richardson) to be general manager of his pistol factory. But Martin is associated with some shady businessmen and purposely ruins the company, causing Royce's death. Shortly thereafter, Martin is found dead, and even though it is called a suicide Royce's sons, Horace (William Desmond) and Henry (Charles Gunn), each believe the other one guilty of the man's murder. The truth comes out later when both young men are rivals for Myra, Martin's widowed daughter (Mitzi Gould). Martin's former mistress, Annette DeSearcy (Claire McDowell) comes forth and reveals that he accidentally shot himself in a struggle with her. In the end, Henry wins Myra.
