On Guggenheim
Smelter Poliev
Suit Filed by Karl Eilers
Heavy Stockholder. Pre
sages Contest for Con
trol of Huge Corporatio:
Market Losses Charged
Company Declared Imper?
iled by Alleged Sclfi*1
Management of Brother'
An action, said to be preliminary
to an attack within the corporation
against the Guggenheim control of the
American Smelting and Refining Com?
pany, was filed in the Supreme Court
yesterday by Karl Eilers, a former di?
rect, r and vice-president of the com
pany. This step in itself is only an
application by Mr. Eilers for a writ of
mandamus to permit him to ?aspect
the stock book of the company. But
its purport, set forth in the affidavit of
the petitioner in which he severely
attacks '.he management of the cor?
poration affairs by the Guggenheim
family, presages a battle for c 'i:'.* :
the company.
Mr, filer's principal aliogatior - are
directed aginst Simon Guggenheim,
lent of the corporation and former
1*:.:*.ed States Senator from Colorado,
of whom he said. ''Simon snaps the
whip and the rest all have to jump."
Mr. Eilers charges 7 ai the com
''?:? h id lost many milli ns of doi
through mismanagement and
igh '-; ck gambling, and expresses
:tr that this sitintion will continue
? ss there is a drastic change in
?nnel and management. He als 3

genheims havj adopted under which
: ey rewar I ; ... I 1 side w :7a them
and punish the recalcitrants. "Mere
puppets," is he way the petitioner re
ers to some of the directors.
The proceeding brought by Mr.
- is of much greater importance
than the average stockholder's action.
wherein a hoi 1er of a share or two of
seeks to direct the affairs of a
ation, for Mr. Eih rs 's en" ??:'

of 7 riese a'nares he received from the
?-tare of his father, Anton Eilers, one
of the founders, of the American Smell?
ing and Refining Company, which nas
an authorized capital of $115 000,000.
Mr. Ei.erb !s also president and di?
rector of the Consolidated Kansas Citv
Smelting and Refining Company and a
director of the Colorado Mines Explor?
ing Company. Hia home is at Sea Cliff,
L. I. He was a director of the Amer?
ican Smelling and Refining Company
ntil April 7. 1920, th? date of the an?
nual meeting, just prior to which he
received a ?etter from Simon Guggen
eim, the president, suggesting thai he
resign because of the differences of
pinion that had existed with regard
.o the policies of the company. To thia
Ir Rtler replied that he would not re?
ign, ut the same time voicing his reu
?.n for differing with Mr. Guggenheim,
iking him to resign, as president and
.* make good for losses incurred by
he company and the stockholder--.
Denied Access to Stock Books
David A. Crockett, transfer ape:;'. . :
| he company, is a codefendant ?n the
i ! i lors proceeding because he is said
? ,o have refused to permit Mr. Eilers
0 see the stock book, which refusal,
- is alleged, was a violation of Sec'ion
3. Chapter 61. of the stock corporate .:
aw. Mr. Eilers said th?? company had
bout 19.0?0 stt-ckhold is and his' pur
lose in asking to see the stock book
nd make extracts, he said, "is ; . ? n
ble mo to communicat?' with othe?
?tockholder? of shid corporation in
?rder to consult with them relative t.'<
ff< Cting a chancre in the management
f the alTnirs if the corporation by the
?lection at said annual meeting of a
new board of directors for said cor
..ration." Mr. Eilers added that th??
>t'iiy way to get the names of stock
ho'ders and secure proxies or direct
votes f??r the next annual election was
by getting access to the tfetock book.
"I am moved to do this," continued
Mr. Euer?, "because of a belief that
?i change of management is vitally
necessary for the well-being of said
corporation. I desire the iniercsts of
said corporation promoted, that I and
j hose whom I repre-ent may, as stock
I holders, be thereby benefited. Al-o be?
cause of the association of my father
j with said company since its inception
to the time of his death, and my own
association with said company, .. cm
nloyee, director and officer for ovei
thirty-one yea.;, 1 feel n keen pi r? nal
interest in said company and its wcll
cing and development.
Selfish Management Charged
"From 1907 to 1920 I was a directo]
of the company. From 1916 to 1920 1
was vice-president of said company
As a director and particular! as ar
officer of sai?! company. I had oppor?
tunity to observe the methods of its
management, and 1 w:is finally con
I vinced that said company has been foi
several years and is now under th?
control of persons who dominate its af
fairs and under whose direction th?
company is managed not for the benefi
of its stockholders or for the well be
ing of said company, but for the pur
poses of furthering the personal ant
selfish ends of sad persons and in dis
regard of the interests of the company
1 am convinced that such domin?t .. i
he Companys' affa rs has resulted ii
retarding its development. To my per
si nal knowledge the company has bi i :
thereby caused losses aggregating,
millions of dol'ai's. I am convince?
that a continuance of such dominatioi
will further retard its development an.
entail further large losses to the com
pany. 1 am convinced that only b
change in the board of directora o
said company can sue!; domination o
its affairs be ended."
The correspondence between Ml
ilers and Mr. Guggenheim that cause
the open break and resulted in the i
tirement of Mr. Eilers from the di
rectorate opened with this letter h
Mr. Guggenheim, dated March 31,1920

"My Dear Mr. Eilers: .Shortly after
I became president of the American
ting and Refining Company it be
? v dent that you were not in
sympathy with m.* administration, I
h"?l h-ped that time would bring a
change in your attitude and bring
about a better accord between us. but
i a year has gone by with no prospect
i" such a result. Our views differ so
fundamentally and ?jn so many ques
that we cannot with advantage to
the company or in justice to either of
? i ' i ue to in-, longer associated
in the management. I have reached
this conclusion with the deepest regret
? cause of our on, association. The
ion was nuchea after careful con?
sideration and 1 regret the step as
eing absolutely necessary for the wel?
fare of the company.
"This letter is written that you may
have an opportunity of yourself tak
the initiative and tendering your
nation before the coming ennual
election on April 7, if you so desire.

Vhcrse Interests Suggested
Eilers replied to this communi
. op. April 3 in part as follows:
"Dear Sir: You are very right uhen
you say I have not been in sympathy

? ps one of the strongest reasons why

"My family and I are now among the
largest stockholders and have held the

Crowds Storm Jail and Liberate
Prisoners; Socialists
Routed at Polls
MADRID, Doc. 20.?'In the elections
yesterday a riet occurre?! in one
??', lician village between Democrats
and Conservatives. One person was
killed and two were wounded. One
person was wounded in a disturbance
at Seville. At Callosa de Segura a
crowd broke down the prison gates and
liberated the prisoners.
An outstanding feature of the elec?
tions was the rout of the Socialists,
who with the Republicans form th? Ex?
tremo Left, Instead of returning to
the House with an increased number of
Deputies, as expected, the Socialists
find their ranks reduced to only four,
while the Republicans also are inferior
