The trust promoter's nightmare

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
A man, possibly Robert A. Ammon, wakes up from a nightmare that shows a criminal labeled "Miller" and "520 per cent" breaking stones in a prison. Earlier in the year, William F. Miller confessed to his role in the 520% Franklin Syndicate swindle, implicating Col. Robert A. Ammon.
