This company has been formed to purchase 15,000 oi the 20,000 Preference Shares and 15,000 of the 30,000 Ordinary Shares of the Rockbridge Company, thereby securing a controlling interest therein. That Company is incorporated by charter from the General Assembly of the State of Virginia with an authorised Capital of 55,000,000 (sav Sl.000,000 sterling) which has been divided into $2,000,000 ten per cent. non-cumulative Preference Shares of $100 each, and $3,000,000 Ordinary Shares of the same nominal value The chief object of the Rockbriage Company is to develop the city of Glasgow, in the county of Rock- bridge, State of Virginia, 450 miles south-west of New Yerk, by encouraging the influx of population, and by establishing the iron, coal, and other industries for which the geographical position of the town gives great natural facilities. It is intended to follow the example of Birmingham, Alabama, and Middlesborough, Kentucky, which have met with such extraordinary success, and considering the wealth of the coal and iron deposits, and railway facilities possessed by this property, upon which the growth and prosperity of a town in America greatly deoends. the directors have no reasen to doubt that the present Company will be similarl), prosperous. THE TOWN OF GLASGOW.—The site chosen is a plateau of some 5,000 acres in extent, on the banks of the James River, 800 feet above the level of the sea. The climate is good, and from a sanitary point of view a better choice could not have been made. It is sufficiently high above the river to ensure efficient drainage, and abundance of pure water can be obtained from the high land in the company's property of Glenwood. Two trunk lines of railway pass through the town. In his report, Mr Ralph Moore, M.E., Glasgow, says :— "All the towns noted in my report have been successful, and I see no reason why Glasgow with its advantages of site and location for iron making a.nd other industries should not also be a success. I think it will be a success and yield a good return, and I confidently recommend the whole scheme to the favourable consideration of the Syndicate." FINANCIAL RESULTS.—Apart altogether from the profit to be derived from the mineral properties, the estimated financial results of the Town Properties within the next three years, including the lots already sold (in the profits flf which this Company will partici- pate), are as follows :— 4,000 lots already laid off, sold and to be sold §2,000,000 say £ 400,000 300 acres adjacent to Glasgow (1,500 lots) 450,000 „ 40,000 2,000 acres a,djaceut to Glasgow (10,000 lots) 1,500,000 „ 300,000 $3,950,000 P.790,000 Deducting for grading and improving: streets & parks, for notel, bridges, street-car line, electric light, Ac. 350,000 70,000 Surplus$3,600,000 £ 720,000 This estimate is based on prices considerably lower than those recently realised in other new towns, and much under the prices actually obtained in Glasgow at the November sales as before mentioned but notwith- standing this it shows a net profit from the sale of lots of $3,227,500 (2645,500), without trenching on the original capital, and without taking into account the coal and iron properties and the investments in local industries and other sources of profit. Many of the leading men of Virginia are share- holders in the Rockbridge Company, the Chairman of the Board of Directors being General Fitzhugh Lee, late Governor of Virginia. The price to be Paid for the 15,000 Preference Shares and 15,000 Ordinary shares of the Rockbridge Company above mentioned is $1,500,000, whereof one-third is payable in cash, and the remaining two-thirds in cash or shares at the option of the Company. The purchase will be carried out under the direction and advice of Messrs Cary and Whitridge. The Canadian Syndicate, Limited, who are the pro- moters of the company, will out of their profit defray the whole expenses connected with the formation of the company up to the date of the first allotment of shares, and as further consideration therefor, will be entitled to subscribe for and receive an allotment of the founders' shares. Two of the directors of the company, being interested in the Syndicate, will not join the board till after allotment. The only contracts entered into are (1) an agreement dated 30th January, 1891, and made between the Rock- bridge Company of the one part and the Canadian Syndicate, Limited, of the other part, being an agreement for the sale and purchase of the said shares of the Rockbridge Company; and (2) an agreement dated 11th February, 1891, and made between the Canadian Syndicate, Limited, of the one part, and Finlay A. Macrae as trustee, for and en behalf of the company of the other part, being an agreement for the re-sale of the said shares at a profit. Copies of these agreements, of the memorandum and ar JA»s T> association, and of the reports of Mr Procter ana Mr Ralph Moore, upon which the above state- ments of fact are mainly based, together with a copy of the charter of incorporation of the Rockbridge Company, can be seen at the offices of the Company's Solicitors. Arrangements have also been made in relation to the issue and guarantee of subcriptions for the company's capital, the advertisement of this prospectus, and other matters to which the company is not a party, but which may constitute contracts within the meaning of section 38 of the Companies Act, 1867. Subscribers will be deemed to have notice thereof and to waive any right I to further particulars thereof under the said section or otherwise, and to accept the above statement as a sufficient compliance with the said section for all purposes. Applications for Shares should be made on the form accompanying the prospectus, and forwarded to the Company's Bankers, together with a cheque for the amount of the deposit due on application. Should the whole amount applied for by each appli- cant not be allotted, the surplus amount paid on deposit will be credited to such applicant towards the sum dne on allotment Where no allotment is made the deposit will be returned in full. Prospectuses and Forms of Application may be had at the Offices of the Company, or of the Company's Bankers. London. 12th February, 1891. 9411 fgtril&ing øddíts.
