ASSESSABLE  MINING STOCK
WE NOTE that Mining Truth of Spokane is campaigning for a revival of the
assessable stock plan for mining corporations. In this connection Engineering
and Mining Journal Press comments as
follows:
The recent ruling of the New York
Curb Association against the listing of
assessable stocks is of interest to mining
companies. Mining companies whose
stock was assessable were once very common; but in many oases the system was
abused by those who held control of the
company's policy, and the situation degenerated into what was plainly called by
them a game of "freeze-out." Every time
a new assessment was declared, a certain
margin of discouraged stockholders refused to pay, and thereby forfeited their
stock, which made the shares of those who
were still in so much more valuable. But
at the next assessment another outside
ring of clinging stockholders was jarred
loose, while the real insiders fattened
thereby. Meanwhile, the stock was judiciously traded in and maneuvered on the
stock exchange, new buyers came along,
speculating, buying for a rise, and thereby a new crop of stakers was ready for the
assessment.
In some cases mines were kept open
and run for many years by systematic assessments, these paying for the salaries of
the controlling ring and for the deficits in
mining operations. These were losing enterprises, which cn a strict business basis
would have been shut down. Some of the
companies operating on the Comstock
Lode are examples. The investor who
hopes to make money out of mining profits
���if there be any so guileless���had about
  ,	
ball in Hades	
Such instances as we have sketched
above were perhaps the exception, but they
were common enough to call for the nonassessable stock plan, which would guarantee the investor at least a certain nonforfeitable equity in consideration of money invested. This equity may be and often
is a vanishing one, in the hands of skilled
jugglers of corporations; nevertheless, it
does not disappear with the disconcerting
suddenness and thoroughness of the equity
represented by assessable stock. And by
the process of evolution, because the public refused to buy assessable stock, the
promoter has turned almost entirely to
non-assessable stocks.
On the other hand, it is easy to see
that in certain conditions and in the hands
of the right people, the assessable stock
has advantages. If a group of people with
their eyes open go into a mining enterprise with the intention of staying with it
to the end, and with their eyes open agree
to assessments ad libitum, then the problem of continued capital for continued operations is an easy one; and those financial
crises, so ruinous to the stockholders' interests,
which so often afflict the non-assessable mining
stock, are avoided, Moreover, the financial history of many mining stocks has shown that asses-
able mining stocks have been the basis of numerous successful ventures after one or more assessments. The great Homestake mine in South Dakota levied one assessment before it became a
profitable gold producer; the Tintic Standard mine
in Utah, levied not fewer than 19 assessments
before it, too, went over the top.
The purchase of non-assessable stock is no
more protection against fraud than a purchase of
the assessable variety. Both may be manipulated
before and after they are issued. In the last analysis the honesty and reputation of the people behind the company is the best guarantee the stockholder can have.

Too bad the Nobel Peace Prize has been
awarded, because it will never bring peace.
So long as history consists of a record of
wars, so long as the Bible is largely a recounting
of battles, and so long as history is studied and
the Bible is read by the young, just -so long will
wars continue.
Burn all the histories and issue new ones,
telling about industrial and social progress; call in
all the present existing Bibles and print revised
editions with the thrilling stonVs of Gideon and
Joshua, of David and Goliath, *f Sampson and his
jaw-bone, deleted; destroy all the novels with battle scenes depicted; and then, perhaps, in a hundred years or so, the young people, having never
heard of fighting on a large scale,
will be content to confine this
form of amusement te personal
encounters in thevback alley.
Pity we didn't think of this
while the contest for the Nobel
Peace Prize was still open. The
prize would have come to Stewart. A great chance to advertise this coming mining metropolis has been missed.

SINCE its organization, the colonization nnd development department of the* Canadian National Railways has given attention to the development of the
natural resources of the territory
traversed by Canadian National
lines; and, in order to give greater
effect to the activities of this
branch of the department, it has
been decided to place a representative in charge in the western region, whose chief duty will be to
gather information and promote
further the development of these
resources, more especial1*' in the
provinces of British Columbia and
Alberta. In this way, the facts
obtained can be hrought to the attention of those interested, with
capital.
The office for this district will be
at Edmonton, in charge of R. C.
W. Lett, now General Agent, Colonization and Development Department, Canadian National Railways,
who is well fitted for the work*
having had considerable experience
in. connection with mining and
lumbering, and during the past
few years has made a very close
study'of the natural resources of
British Columbia and Alberta.
