BY JUSTICE DIXON
New Construction Placed on Two
Sections of the General Cor
Dy 1..(.luie Wile from The Associated Presa.
'New York, April S.vlustice Dixon,
at Trenton. N. J., today filed the. opin
Kn of the court or errors and appeals
in the case brought by minority stock
holders of the American Smelting and
Refining company to enjoin the pur
chase of tlie property of M. Guggen
heim & Sons. Tills opinion has been
awaited with grant interest by corpor
ation lawyers and is considered most
important as affecting corporations in
Xew Jersey. The importance of tlie
opinion lies in the construction placed
by the court on the forty-eighth and
forty-ninth sections of tho general cor
porations act. Vice Chancellor Stev
ens hold tho court could not go beyond
tho decision of tho board of "directors
as to the value of property to bo pur
chased by tho issuing of stock. The
court of errors on tlie contrary, holds
Lliat it must be clearly shown that the
value of such property Is at least rea
sonably near the price to be paid and
that the action of the directors is sub
ject to review at the Instance of any
stockholder who considers himself ag
grieved. In the course of his opinion Justice
Dixon points ouL that under section 40
when corporate slock lias once been
issued for property purchased, the leg
islature has directed the application of
another rule. Under such conditions
nothing but actual fraud in the trans
actions can impair the right oC the
stockholder to hold his stock as full
paid stock free from further call.
Applying the rule as above laid down
Justice Dixon discusses tlie actual
value of the property, the purchase of
which was contemplated by tho issue
of $13,000,000 of stock. He llnds it ad
mitted that tho value of tho Guggen
heim plant as physical possessions did
not exceed Slti.OOO.OOO, and with the
cash to have been turned over, leav
ing about $2:1.000,000 to be made up In
the. value of the good will of the busi
ness and the leases and contracts, the
nature of which was not at any time
disclosed in the proceedings.
While the defendants claimed the
complainants had not horno the bur
don of proof cast upon them, Justice
Dixon holds that under the circum
stances this rule shuuld not he vigor
ously enforced' at tills stage. The
proofs. Judge Dixon says, point strong
ly lo tho conclusion that in tho negoti
ations between the parties the real
value of the property to bo acquired
hud not been the basis upon which
they have determined the amount of
stock to le issued therefor,
Tlie fact that the expected consum
mation of the deal caused tho market
value of the sloelc to rise, and which
was used as an argument that the pro
posed purchase would not bo advan
tageous to tho stockholders, Justice
Dixon llnds to be without weight. He
says that If the Intrinsic vnluo of tho
stock was only sixty per cent, of its
face and an outsider offered eighty
per cent, in money for additional stock
to ho issued, such an offer would clear
ly bo advantageous to tho company
and Its stockholders, hut It could not
legally bo. accepted, because the legis
lature has required that 100 per cent.,
whether In cash or property, shall be
received for corporate stock.
Tito court llnds that the mere fact
that two-thirds of the directors and
stockholders voted for tho purchase
capnot prevent its review, pointing out
that this would not justify an Issue of
stock for an illegitimate enterprise.
In accordance with these views, the
court orders that the stay ho con
tinued, enjoining tho purchase, and
that proceedings to Increase the stock
should likewise remain in statu quo
pending llnal argument and a decision
by the court of chancery us to tho real
vulue of 'tho Guggenheim property.

Dy lixctiHlve Wiie from The Af-neUled Pri-s.
Ptkin, April 8. Tho rumors which
have boon current during the past
few days of the outbreak of a rebellion
headed by General Tung Fu Slan. the
former commander of the northern
army, in the provinces of Mongolia
and Shen Si. have been absolutely au
thenticated, 1,1 Jluiur Chang and Prince Ching
have received information on the sub
ject, which, though indefinite, still
proves tlu.L tlie court Is seriously
General Tung Fit slan was, accord
ing to last accounts, about 150 miles
from the court, with 11,000 regular
troops, all supposed lo be devoted to
The court has about the same num
ber of soldiers at Slang Fu, but it is
probable the troops of Tung Fu Slan
are better drilled and better armed.
It is believed that the Mongolian re
bellion was brought about through
agents of Prince Tuan and General
Tung Fu Sian. T.J Hung Chang thinks
there are about fi.flOO regular troops
in Mongolia, and inclines to the be
lief that they have not joined In the
rebellion. Ho does not think tho court
is in any danger and thinks tho ob
ject of Prince Tuan, (who was last
reported at Xing Hsu with 10,000 men,
prepared to resist arrest), and General
Tung Fu Sinn, is to create a diversion
of interest, in order to force uncondi
tional protection of themselves.
An Unfortunate Move.
Pnciflicial Chinamen of intelligence
regard tho rising as most unfortunate
at tho present time to the intents of
China, ami as possibly meaning the
use of foreign troops to protect even
the court itself.
The ministers of tlie powers do not
think that, provided foreign interests
do not suffer, any present interference
is likely. If the dynasty should he
overthrown it would, to a certain ex
tent, delay the peace negotiations, but
they consider that a regime not .bound
by traditions like those of the present
court would probably be much easier
to deal 'with eventually, as the cere
monial could be much curtailed.
Prince Citing, who, as a relative, may
be considered to take the court view
of the situation, thinks Iho rebellion is
a storm in a. teacup. Ho says the pres
ent court is loved anil esteemed by
nino-tenths of tho population of China,
and that the same proportion of able
bodied men in China would rise to pro
tect the existing dynasty.
Tung Pu Sian's Career.
General Tung Fu Slan lias been
looked upon as the most formidable of
the Chinese generals. Ho is nn ex
Mohummedan of Central Asia. In 1SS0
he commanded the Chinese troops at
Aksu, in Kashgarla and In 1S03 lie was
entrusted with the task of crushing
the Tung Van rebellion in tho province
of Klang Tsti. He supported tlie nox
ers movement, and when commanding
the Chlnsse troops near Pekln, boasted
that no foroignor should enter the
Chinese capital. It Is understood that
ho directed tho bombardment of the
foreign quarters at Tien Tsln and ho
wns reported to have been upon tho
point of using his guns on the lega
tions after he had retreated bofnro tho
international forces. Ho was lator
impeached by the viceroys and was
said to have dad to tho province of
Shan Si. His death has several times
been reported erroneously and his exe
cution was demanded, but It was rep
resented by the Chinese that his fol
lowing wns so largo that it would be
dangerous to press matters In this con
nection, Kventually. ho practically de
fied tho court, but was sentenced to bo
deprived of his rank and degraded.
Reports of his rebellious Intentions
liavo been current for some time past.
