X, 11«M. H. T Bkawoon, . Tonopah, Nev. Dkar Sir:—The Daily Mining Record, of Denver. Colo., in its issue of Dee. dd, 1904. includes in its “insipid” list, the Goldfield Mining company, of Nevada. “(2) defunct.” This seems a puzzle to us. All the reports that we have come across have been very favor able as to said company. Can you give us some enlightenment? The writer has recently ordered 100 shares of the Goldfield Mining company’s stock, and another p‘*r'y in our hank has a small amount VV e are therefore interested in tlnj matter. Thanking you in advance, we are Yours truly. E. \V. Fimikr, E KoTKHMr.NI>. Before commenting upon tin above letter a little explanation will serve to make the matter clearer to those who are not fully posted. The Ihiily Mining Record, for the benefit of its subscribers.] has an ‘'information department.” and upon reipiest will endeavor to ascertain the physical and finan cial condition of any mining com pany, the object being to give the subscribers a better opportunity of judging of the merits of its stock as an investment. From personal knowledge of the Record and it.' owners, we believe they are thor oughly honest in doing this and do riot use it as a means of blackmail ing, as • 1 <• many alleged mining papers including some not a thou sand miles from (ioldfield. But, no matter how honest a paper or man may be, what with propriety may be askkh can be put in the form of a ns.M.vxn, which a Self-respecting man will ignore, es pecially if the latter has reason to feel the n ipiest or demand is made ♦>V one who lias no right to make it. We venture the assertion that a large proportion of labor troubles and strikes have been caused, not so much because of concessions aski d. hilt because of the w ay in which one side or the other 1>K Maxi*ki* certain things. Helling i>a« K to me case m pomi. The (ioldtield Mining company of Nevada is neither insipid nor de funct. It i> the pioneer mining Company of the district, and is offi cered hv men of tin- highest stand ing in < midfield. It owns the great January mine, from the ho-' nanza lease on which the company j i- accummulating a handsome j treasury reserve which will he used in a manner to hest subserve the interest- of all the stoekholder tvlien the lea-" expires next month. Besides the .January, the company owns six other excellently located i claims, which it i- believed need onlv development to make them possible rival- to tic- January. Hundred- of prominent mining « n from tic- world over have been tendered the courtesy of inspecting its property ami no stockholder, large or small, would ever la* de nied information from tic* hooks. The above being true, it seems peculiar that the Record should place the < loldticld Mining com pany in its "insipid” list. It is probable that the Record, at the request of a stock holder, sent let ters asking for information which, owing to faulty mail service, were not received here. As the < idd field Mining company has never offered its stock to the general pub lic, it is under no obligation to give information to tin Record editor or anyone else not a stockholder. But. nevertheless, we know Secre tary Bragdon is too courteous •>> leftist any proper request, if prop erly pre-eiitcd. Then* i- a vast difference, in their relation- to a legitimate tiewspa|>er. between a company which advertises its stock to the general public, and one which is practically a dose ooporat ion. The ' former is morally bound to furnish such information the latter can he expected to do so onlv as a mat* ter of courtesy. The Adams ( ioldticld company. I which is officered hy practically the same men as the (ioldticld Mininp company of Nevada, has also been placed hy the Record in ' its “insipid” list. There is no pood ! excuse for this, either. The Adams | is not yet a shipper, hut it has j ojH>ned up pood bodies of mill ore and the company is workinp its property steadily and honestly.with much better prospects for succecs than the larpe majority of com panies even in this preat district. With these facts before the Rec ord and it knows they would not appear in these columns if they were not facts--we look for the immediate withdrawal of these companies from the Record’s “in sipid" list, and an apology for the injustice unintentional we are positivi—that it has done two of the best managed companies in the (ioldticld district. And Still Another. Ami still the il.1 hi iliviileml money; ji<mrs in from the '/Ann lease, says the I I'tah State Journal, hast evening the j Ogden - Goldfield company declared j another division of $100 a share, nearly all ! of which was distributed among Ogden people. This is one of the most won-| derful producers in the world-famed camp, paying something like 100 per cent a week in dividends. The lease on the property, a section of the Jumbo lode, runs for several months longer. Remember The Miners' (’ash Store, opposite the Recorder's office, Goldlield, Nev. tf Do Not Be Deceived.
