Cast & Crew
When Jack Webster, the governor's son, visits one of James Haggerty's tenements, he is appalled at the conditions, and also falls in love with Faith, a tubercular laundry girl. Jack marries her against his father's wishes, and then, on the advice of Doctor De La Roche, a tuberculosis expert, takes her to a ranch to live. Governor Webster quickly disowns Jack, and when a newspaper gets the story, a series of articles exposes the conditions in Haggerty's slums. Because of the public outcry generated by the articles, the governor is forced to support tenement reform, while his daughter Muriel, whom he had hoped would marry Haggerty, instead marries De La Roche, and supports him in his fight against tuberculosis.
