A.'s home to threaten him, but is taken off guard when his victim's little daughter leans trustfully on his knee and looks up at him with a smile. The D. A. ignores Chuck's warning, and the gang orders the gunman to execute him. Chuck breaks into the house, but sees the little girl again and is unable to complete his task. Instead, he seeks out his girl friend, Annie Mangan, a Salvation Army reformer, and swears to end his life of crime. Meanwhile, Chuck's sister Maggie, the mistress of one of the gang members, overhears gang leader Jim Canford order another gunman to kill the D. A. and frame Chuck for the crime. Maggie warns Chuck who, seeing a chance to atone for his sins, rushes to the D. A.'s house where he fights it out with the gunman. Chuck saves the D. A., but is mortally wounded himself. He dies, believing that his murderous past has been expiated.
