This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt:, including acquisition of stocks. Co. buys two petroleum properties, comprising 44 oil wells, besides some rights to bore, and a controlling interest in a petroleum refinery in the oil belt of the Schodnica district in Galicia. Some very gushing accounts are supplied about the yield of oil and prospects, and a little arithmetical calculation is made to show a nett revenue of 120,000, equal to 16 per cent, per annum upon the capital now issued.

Cum. Pref.; present issue 438,000 in equal parts. Properties in Assam, in the Dooars, and in Ceylon are to be combined under one management.
