American Genius Once More Solves a Problem.
Conclusive Tests at Philadelphia Demonstrate the Successful Utilization of the Earth's Energy, Saving Millions in Telephone Expense.
Following the successful exhibitions conducted by Nathan Stubblefield at his home in Kentucky last January, and at Washington, D. C., last March, which have already been described in the New York Herald and Sun, Philadelphia Press, Louisville Courier-Journal, Washington Times and other leading papers of the country, has come the most notable success of all in the demonstrations given by him at Philadelphia, May 30 and 31 and June 4.
These demonstrations covered talking both through the wireless telephone and over the uninsulated wire, at distances varying from a quarter of a mile up to a mile and a half, not only on the land, but under and across the Schuylkill River, and elicited from the spectators, or rather auditors, such enthusiastic comments as "a brilliant success," "positively wonderful," "Wireless Telephony is possible, and "he has solved it," the last being the dictum of a high electrical authority.
Of the results of these tests the Philadelphia Inquirer says:--

The Philadelphia Record:--
Thus Mr. Stubblefield's 12 years of untiring labor, study and exhaustive experiment have at last won for him a place among the great inventors who have benefited mankind by their genius. While his work has not heretofore been as familiar to the public as that of Edison, Bell and Marconi, he has long been known to the leading electrical investigators of the day, and his recent success has caused those most interested in wireless telephony and telegraphy to seek his advice and judgment. A most interesting account of his wireless apparatus, and of his other great invention--the uninsulated wire--also of the recent water tests on the Potomac River at Georgetown, D. C, is contained in "The Inventive Age" for May, published at Washington, D. C and in the New York/Scientific American of May 24. (A reprint of these articles may be obtained on addressing any of the offices of Mr. Stubblefield's company, The Wireless Telephone Co. of America.)
Most material proof of the widespread interest and faith in Mr. Stubblefield's inventions is displayed in the hundreds of subscriptions already received from all over the country for the stock of his company, which was only placed on the market a week ago.
While Mr. Stubblefield, like most inventors, is a man of only moderate means, he has refused most flattering offers for his inventions, preferring to secure his capital from the public rather than sacrifice the results of his work to a syndicate, and the event has justified his action in organizing his own company for the purpose.
Notwithstanding the fact that the enormous savings made in both the telephone and telegraph business by the new Stubblefield systems, as against the old methods, almost of themselves guarantee earnings equal to the Bell, the Company is capitalized at only $5,000,000 (at $1.00 per share par, full paid and non-assessable), $2,000,000 of which has been placed in the treasury for a working fund. For the immediate construction of a plant for manufacturing the Stubblefield apparatus, already compelled by the demand, a portion of this latter amount is now being sold at 25c. per share.
THIS FIGURE FOR THIS STOCK PLACES SUBSCRIBERS IN EXACTLY THE SAME POSITION AS THE EARLIEST INVESTORS IN BELL TELEPHONE WHOSE PROFITS HAVE AMOUNTED TO OVER 2,000%.
Further particulars concerning Mr. Stubblefield's inventions and the almost instantaneous demand for them may be obtained on application either in person or by mail to the WIRELESS TELEPHONE CO. OF AMERICA, 11 Broadway, New York and 8 Exchange place, Boston. All indications are that the present allotment of stock will be very rapidly taken up.
