Summary
"A young country lawyer is driven by poverty to accept an assemblyman's salary from the hands of a "boss," and when his conscience forces him to vote against a bad bill he is thrown out of office. He becomes a reform county prosecutor but fails in re-election and accepts a position as lawyer for the power company which he had been actively fighting. He makes a rich, loveless marriage, becomes a U.S. senator, and in the end, looking back upon the seeting furnace of corruption thru which he has passed, finds comfort in the love of the girl he renounced in his days of poverty"--The Cumulative Book Review Digest, Vol. I, 1905
