Synopsis for Will Bragg: "Floating Oil Company"

Hard pressed by his many creditors, Will Bragg partners up with Honest John Sharpe to form the Floating Oil Company, with himself as president and Sharpe as treasurer. They float an Initial Public Offering of their valuable stock, limiting investors to only $1000 apiece. Then at closing time, the treasurer gathers up all the cash receipts and departs.

Some time later it's learned that the company's "oil well" is under six feet of water, and Honest John Sharpe is missing, so Bragg is arrested for grand larceny, plus almost all his associates now despise him. Effy pays his bail and he's freed in her custody, at which news he tries to lock himself in the jail, but just then it turns out that there IS oil on the company's property. Fire Chief Swenson checked it out and it's real. This story gets into the newspapers. Everybody goes out to the site to look at it, then Honest John shows up with a tale about how, no, this is actually "fools oil", but as an ethical businessman, he offers to buy back everybody's stock at par value. Nobody falls for this, until he doubles his offer. All of Bragg's associates have now doubled their money, and everybody leaves before the clean-up crew arrives from a real oil company, because as it turns out, there was a pipeline leak, upstream from the F.O.Company's property, but don't worry, soon it will be fixed. Bragg ends up looking like a genius, at least according to Effy.
