Later Mr. Mamler will be tried on suspicion of fraud, but during the trial Mr. Burnham testifies that Mr. Mamler will be disadvantaged and demonstrates how easy it is to photograph spirit photographs.

Mamler, who was able to confront decisive evidence during the trial, eventually became innocent. However, Mr. Mumler 's career as a spirit photographer is totally crushed by this trial.
