Xtv.- York. March IS DeJccteJ In mien
and rorc in spirit, about a score of stock
holder? of the ill-fated International Zinc
Company )ield a meeting- to-day In the of
fice of Charles A. pougherty at No. CS Wall
Btreet. Eltttr attacks were made on per
rons prominent in the company, and. after
a scries of disputes and conflicting sugges
tions, a committee of three nas appointed
to guaid the stockholders' interest and de
ie means to reorganize the concern.
It was a heterogeneous crowd that filled
the two little rooms in Mr. Poushcrtj's of
fice. There were present callow youths.
gr. beards, a couple of women and several
lawjers. who represented out-of-town
(tockholder Wlllism Speed of Philadel
phia was Introduced by the chairman. Mr.
Dougherty, as the largest stockholder in
"Taking lesal representatives and letters
from persons out of town," said Mr. Dough
erty, "we have present stockholders repre-f-cnting
SOUffH shares of the company. Our
lirst object is to devise means to pay tho
513.0CO duo on the Free Coinage fee before
March 10. to prevent foreclosure. An addi
tional sum of $15,030 will then hae to be
paid in ninety dajs.
Proposed n Iteorcnnlzatlon.
"I have received n dispatch from W. K.
Trimble, receiver for the company, at Jop-
lin. Mo . In which he estimate t me vaiue
of the Tree Coinage fee at J1C0.WO. At any
rate. I am convinced that the fee is worth
&5.PD0, leaving us an equity of 5.000.
"It is evident that we cannot pay even
1 per cent on the total capitalization of
J1.WO.000. of which 600,000 shares have been
told or given away, so I propose that we
leorgamze the company on a basis of 600,-
000 shares, or preferably 100,000."
"We mUht throw this corporation into
bankruptcy" suggested Mr. Richards, a.
lawyer from Kansas City. "That would
Irev ent the sale of the Free Coinage fee."
Jesse Starr, who said he represented Bos
ton stockholders, raised a vigorous objec
tion to this proportion.
"The receiver," lie said, has telegraphed
that the Free Coinage property Is worth
$100,000. The Blue Wing lease will earn
from $S00 to 51,000 a week If properly run.
1 hope the company will not be permitted
to go Into bankruptcy.
"You have all been robbed, but not so
much at thU end as at the other."
Mr. Starr here attacked four or five men
whom he blamed for the financial troubles
of Che company.
Mr. Garretson. a civil engineer, who slid
he was familiar with the property in Jop
lin. Mo., disputed Mr. Starr's estimates.
"There is not a mine in that district." he
paid, "that can make money ana pay a i
per cent royalty."
Ta.lL. of Prosecution.
"Before we attempt to get hold of any
ossets," said James T. McNaboe, a lawyer
of Xo. 202 Broadway, "wo want to know
what has become of the money that has
been invested. I think we are in a fair
wav to get at the bottom of this. I am not
going to tell you all the evidence we've
got. but we have made substantial progress.
If anybody is guilty of wrongdoing If Is
our duty to ourselves an.1 to the public to
place the guilt where it belongs."
Mr. McNaboe went, on ,to say that if he
found grounds for prosecuting any one he
would certainly do so. The books of the
company containing the names of the
stockholders have not yet been located.
After several offers were made to sub
scribe sums to raise the urgently needed
J13.0C0, Mr. Doughertv. Mr. McNaboe and
H. B. Schoemaker of Xo. 71 Broadway, who
represents several Boston stockholders,
were chosen as a committee to meet on
Monday to consult as to the best steps to")
take in the interest or tne stocKnoiaers.
John Grant Lyman, the chief organizer of
the company, was not present at the meet
ing, but wrote to say he would be glad to
co-operate in any feasible scheme to save
the company's mining property in Missouri.
