On being released from prison, the "Wolf" tries to inveigle Manning into committing robbery, but the young man is determined to live straight. And not long after, he gets a job in the offices of a large coal company. Here he meets Kitty Clancy, a stenographer, who is supporting herself and her mother. Without suspecting that she is in any way connected with Dan Clancy, Manning falls in love with Kitty. The "Wolf," meanwhile, has discovered where his family is living. He is ashamed, however, to reveal himself to his wife and daughter. Luck is against him, and Manning finds him one night, ragged, penniless and starving. He takes him home with him to his room. While Manning has gone out in his best suit to call on Kitty, Clancy finds the keys of the coal offices in the young man's working clothes, and the rest is easy. Making his get-away with the contents of the safe, the "Wolf," in passing the house where his wife and daughter are living, is moved to have a farewell glimpse of them. Peering in the window, he discovers that Manning is his daughter's sweetheart. Realizing that Manning will be blamed for the theft, and what that will mean to Kitty, the old man goes back to the coal offices and replaces the money. He is shot at and wounded, however, by the night watchman, and though he manages to reach Manning's room, the latter, on returning, finds him dying. Clancy confesses his relationship to Kitty and her mother, and Manning, at his request, sends for them. The "Wolf" dies forgiven, and Manning leads the grieving women "out of the darkness" into a more hopeful way of life. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
