Cast & Crew
Following the death of his parents, Bill O'Hara is reared by the Clairbornes, owners of the local newspaper. They have a son of their own--Sam. Just before the death of Mr. Clairborne, Bill becomes heir to the estate, and Sam is disowned because of his dope addiction. Because the newspaper is losing money, Bill plots a bogus "murder" to create news, and the town is soon in an uproar. When Sam's body is found in the swamps, evidence points to Bill, his foster brother; and De Muidde, the backer of the narcotics gang, seeks to avenge himself for the exposé by having Bill lynched. Mrs. Clairborne arrives just in time, however, with Sam's suicide note, which clears Bill.
