Wireless   Telephone   and
Telegraph  Company
Embracing the Following Systems:

Collins  Wireless  Telephone,

Clark  Wirelees  Telegraph  and  Telephone,

        The Continental Wireless Telephone and Telegraph Company, capital stock $5,000,000, par value of shares $1.25 each, has been organized to control, operate and develop wireless telephone and telegraph systems now doing business in America. This Company will have, it is believed, absolutely the best there is in the wireless field to-day.
        Arrangements have been made for a controlling interest in in the Collins Wireless Telephone Company, capitalized at $1,000,000; the Clark Wireless Telegraph-Telephone Company, capitalized at $2,500,000; The Pacific Wireless Company, capitalized at $10,000,000; and Massie Wireless Telegraph Company, capitalized at $300,000; the acquirement of all their rights, titles, interests, patents, stations and assets generally, which will place the Continental Company in a very strong position, making its shares a most attractive and inviting investment, a security which embodies all that is conservative, safe, tangible and profitable. The advantages of this consolidation are manifold:
        It gives the Company an immediate wide field of operation and consequent earning capacity.
        It gives investors an opportunity to become associated with a conservatively capitalized wireless enterprise, stations of which have been, and now are, doing a commercial business.
        It assures the establishment of a trans-continental wireless telegraph-telephone service.
        The capitalization of the Continental Company is most conservative and reasonablk, and indicates the future business policy of the management. There are no bonds or preferred stock.
        The Continental Company enters the field with not only the best there is in wireless telephony and telegraphy, but with the most experienced and efficient management that it is possible to concentrate on one enterprise. It numbers, among others, men with professional, technical and financial experience in wireless, men who have aided in perfecting and developing the system now in use, and thoroughly understand every branch of the business. The greatest results can thus be obtained from the least expenditure of time and money.
        Success in a large undertaking such as this is dependent on the perfection of all of its parts and it is with great satisfaction the Continental points to the reocrd of The Pacific, The Collins and the Massie Systems.


            The  Collins  system  has  been  tried  and  pronounced  a  success  in  the  following  and  other  experiments:
 
From Newark, N. J., to New York, 12 miles.         From Congers to New York, 35 miles.
From Newark to Philadelphia, 81 miles. From Chicago to a steamer on Lake Michigan.
From room to room in the suite occupied by President Taft at the Hotel LaBalle, Chicago.
Used by General Grant in welcoming the President's train at Chicago, March 17, 1910.

Without going into ony technical description of wireless telephony it is enough to say that it has undoubtedly come to stay.
