SIXTH AND JACKSON STREETS.
To the Readers of the St. Paul Globe.
/ am using this page to tell you in a few words that I am placing as fore the
investment public what I honestly consider to be the most splendid proposition of iti
kind ever offered.
I went everyone who reads this advertisement to at least write ms and receive
in return my little booklet—"The Story of the America-Britannia"-a history of
what will become within a year one of the greatest copper properties in the world
lam very anxious to finance this property within the shortest possible time,
for I know that as soon as the necessary money is raised the mine will declare
dividends, and that will mean another feather in my cap.
lam placing before your notice an honest, clean business proposition. If you
will invest in this stocJr, both of us will be benefited—you by gaining an income, and
I by successfully financing the most legitimate and promising property ever called to
a fiscal agent's attention.
My present offer to the Investing
public is the stock of the America-
Britannia Mining Company, of Everett,
Washington. They have what is pro
nounced by experts to be the finest
partially developed copper mine in the
•world. There is enough gold and sil
ver in the ore to pay for all cost of
mining, transportation and smelting,
leaving the copper a source of net
profit. There are over 96,000 tons of
ore In sight. At the present price of
copper, the profit on the ore in sight
■will pay more than 300 per cent on the
total capitalization, which is $1,500,000.
The total net value of the ore blocked
out is $4,521,600. At the price I now
offer the stock (15 cents per share) the
Btockholders will get $20 for every dol-

THE ORE IN SIGHT.
There are thousands and thousands of
tons yet to be uncovered.
All that is needed to pay dividends
is the erection of a tramway to take
the ore down the mountainside, have
it loaded on cars, and sent to the Ev
erett smelter over the Great Northern
line. I am authorized to sell a limited
amount of stock at 15 cents per share
in order to raise the sum necessary to
build this tramway. Par value of tha
stock is $1.00 per share.
I have had too much practical ex
perience as a fiscal agent to Indulge in
visions. I generally underestimate than
overestimate results;. When I financed
the Alaska Central railway and first
sold stock at $5.00 per share, I made
some pretty strong predictions.
MY PREDICTIONS CAME TRUE.
My Alaska Central customers are
now offered from 50 to 100 per cent
more than they paid. I believe that the
stock of the America-Britannia Min
ing Company, at 15 cents per share, ig
a better investment than the Alaska
Central ever was.
