Have, up to date, subscribed and paid their money for stock in Durham Collieries, Lim
ited, Non-Personal Liability.
72 People, most all of them living in Whitman County—their names are printed on this page—have carefully
examined the merits of the enterprise and have paid their money for stock. Don't think for a moment that these 72
people bought a pig in a poke—that is that they bought the stock without knowing exactly what they were getting.
iHEY ALL looked into it with painstaking care from Ato izzard. They examined maps, photos and plans, they
saw half a ton of coal from our Bell Mine. Most of them talked the matter over with President Weinberg, after his
personal examination of the property. They were assured that it was a Whitman County enterprise, that most of
the stock would be held in Whitman County, that all the officers and directors would be Whitman County men. In
other words, they satisfied themselves that the project was a home enterprise and that, so far as human foresight was
possilbe, there was no chance of failure, but, on the other hand every assurance of a grand financial success.
