"The prospectus of the company, written by a cheerful liar, states that not one of the great mines of the United States has as great a percentage of copper as the Fort Pitt, and there is a greater value back of this stock than any stock on the market, and that it is as safe as real estate with ten times the earning power, all of which statements are unmitigated prevarications. By reason of its bad antecedents and willful lies, the company is considered a swindle." Horace J. Stevens (1911) The Copper Handbook. pp818-819.
