Cast & Crew
William P. Carleton
John Hodder becomes rector of St. John's, a fashionable church, situated near a slum neighborhood, in the town of Bremerton. Eldon Parr, a wealthy and prominent member of the parish, drives his daughter, Alison, and son, Preston, from home by his dishonest scheming. The girl becomes a settlement worker, and the son, forbidden to marry salesgirl Kate Marcy, is demoralized. Rector Hodder from the pulpit exposes the infamy of his congregation, pointing out the individuals and specifying their crimes, and refuses the elder Parr's demand that he resign, thus winning the heart of Parr's daughter. Garvin, a man ruined by Parr financially, shoots Parr, then kills himself. Kate and Preston are reclaimed, and the parish becomes popular with the poor as well as with the rich.
