i which provide that none of , "the property owned-now or in future -
; can be disposed of without a two thirds vote in favor of same by the ;
, stockholders, at 'a meeting called for that purpose.- t - ;..'.L
; At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors, the President of ;v
the company was authorized and empowered to appoint a committee ,
'' of three to audit the books bf the company quarterly and have their
u report printed for distributronamqng the stockholders
Was declared "for the month of May.- These dividends were sent )
out to our stockholders, among whom are many- bankers lawyersr-,
physicians, businessmen and, in fact. peopIe"in all walks -of life.
We have, never paid a smaller dividend 'than this. . Do." you 1

The holders of, THETJ.jCLEECOMPANYstock get the

prospectors and when they find something that looks good we
Jofcate it.'. Then we develop it until we can . show prospective in; "
vestors something worth their whiles ; Then we either promote it, -'
sell or operate it ourse!ves. As a stockholder, you get the benefit ?
of all this. Don't think this is a safe way of conducting a mining
business? , We do, because we have tried it. , : ; 'vl: .' ,, ' ; ,;
Capitalization Lpvv.-Pividends Binh' v 1
-THE J. C. LEE COMPANY is incorporatedunder the laws of T":
2,000 shares of a.par value of $100 each. - It does not-require great s
earning capacity-to pay good dividends on only 2,000 shares. That's
why our dividends have NEVER BEEN LESS THAN TWO DOL
LARS AND TWENTY-FIVE CENTS PER SHARE, MONTH-Tj
LY. That's why we expect to DOUBLE our dividends within the
next NINETY . DAYS.. 7 - - , ,
Because we have assets of over HALF A MILLION DOLLARS
, to back it up, and whenever you find that, we have misrepresented
anything, all you have.tci do.is to ask for your -money back and
YOU WILL GET IT. That's fair, isn't it?. ,
