serve to suppress development, but
the unofficial delegates from Alaska
have not been able to convince con

because they disagree among them

I WILL BE ADVANCED IN PRICE
MAY 15th, 1903
Development at the Highland Mine Justifies an Advance in the Price ot Stock. It is Much Mor
E Valuable Now Than When We Placed the First Allotment on the Market Some
Two Months Ago.
CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT AND
A crew of men have been eoiistnntly sit work ever
sir.ee we acquired this property and the Glasgow crosscut
Las now encountered and fully crosscut tho ledge. In this
ci ossein we have opened up a body of ore sixteen feel in
width carrying pood commercial values.
Jn speaking of commercial values we mean ores
1 ki'h have n sufficient value to pay for the extraction
milling and all other incidental expenses thereto, with
oik ugh" of a margin left over to pay good dividends to the
This large lody of ore was not in tho nature of a
surprise, we simply expected it, as the surface develop
nifnts showed this same large body of ore, and there was
no reason why it should not lie encountered in this ero?s
'ut and at this depth.
We nro now turning to drift on the ledge to the west
from the crosscut in order that we may open tip the richer
uc at. a greater depth which are found on the utraw
throughout the Bnnnockburn claim.
This line of development, we believe, will prove very
interesting to all who are interested, or may necumc
of ted in the Highland mine, as it will certainly open tip
ore bodies rich in quality and in large quantities.
It will demonstrate that the Highland will rank as one
of the largest producers in tho district.
From now on the development work will be com
paratively easy and not very expensive, as wo vill be
drifting along the ledge where tho ground is much easier
io work than in tho country rock which encases tho vein.
Kvery month will show a largo increase in our ore reserves.
FREE TRIP TO THE HIGHLAND
To any one who wishes to invest a reasonable sum of
money in the Highland mine, we will pay all traveling
expenses to and from the mine for the purpose of his
making a personal examination.
In offering you a free trip to tho Highland wo feel
that this is proof within itself of tho value of this prop
erty as it stands to reason that if we di dnot have a good
ii,:ne there and all that we claim for it we could not offer
ou such an inducement.
Wo would lie only too glad to have each and every
oik- who contemplates tho investment of money in mines,
me out and look over this property and tho district in
general. In offering to pay your expenses out here ami
back we fool that we arc not running any risk whatsoever
as we know positively that no one. no matter now grea:
or oonpervutivo an oxpert or mining engineer he may be,
could jKissibly, roughly speaking, "turn it dowu."
POOL YOUR INTERESTS
If you have not sufficient money yourself to justify
you in coming to tho Highland to look it over beforo in
verting, wo would suggest that you and your friends make
up a small pool and send onu of your number out here
to look over the Highland. In this way wo believe you
v i uld get absolute information as to tho Value of tho prop
erty you invest your money in, and you will also buvejin
opportunity to learn all almut tho reputation, Btauding
and ability of tho directors of tho Highland cumpiuy.
Wo take pleasure in referring you to any bank, bin
ii tss man, or mining man in our own community.
SECURE STOCK NOW
If you wish to secure any of this stock while it in
selling at tho low price you should send in your order as
quick as jiossible. TIiomj who hnvo not all tho money on
hand to pay for as much stock as they wIbIi to purchase,
may send lis a portion of it and we will sot tho stock, aside
W you and you can pay the balance later.
THE PRESENT PRICE OF STOCK IS SIX (6) CENTS PER SHARE
In case all the stock we with to sell you at this ptke shoU he sold
before your order is received, we reserve the right to return you
