    Over the objections of her father (Henry B. Wathall) Doris Maynard (Barbara Kent) elopes with family chauffeur Dan Simmons (Eddie Phillips). Simmons pawns her jewels, forges her father's name on a bank note and leaves Doris a note to go home and let her father support her. A year or two later, Doris meets and falls in love with and marries Donald Thorne (Monte Blue), a crusading district attorney. Her father advises her to let the past remain buried and unrevealed. A campaign for re-election is on and Thorne has the machine organization in despair. Denman (Dewey Robinson), the machine head, is desperate and gets hold of Manners (William V. Mong), a former butler in Thorne's home who had been fired by Doris for petty theft. Manners agrees to plant some manufactured evidence in Thorne's home to discredit him. Manners, with Thorne out of town and the servants off, has no problem entering the Thorne residence. Neither does Simmons who breaks in upstairs with intentions of blackmailing Doris about her past. Downstairs, Manners is placing the framed evidence in a secret drawer of the library table when he discovers a gun that Thorne had given Doris for protection. He hears voices upstairs, investigates and overhears Simmons making his blackmail demands of Doris. She gives him her money and jewels and he departs, followed by Manners, who kills Simmons and throws the gun in the bushes. An investigation, spurred by Denman, reveals the murdered man was Mrs. Donald Thorne's unrevealed ex-husband and the murder weapon the gun Thorne had left for Doris' protection. None of this information bodes well for Thorne's re-election campaign.
