hold, eminent positions  in   the  mining
world, and gave their opinions at the very
fountain head of investing capital.   These
scurrilously needless opinions had to be

dividends to its shareholders.
We said "Give credit where it is due"
and in order to do this it is necessary to
say that the sound business methods of
McCuaig Bros., coupled with the close
