Be Selected to Lead Senators
Springfield, ni., Not. 4. Plans for
the organization of a stock company to
assume the Springfield franchise in the
Three-Eye league are maturing, and it
1b -probable that the deal will be per
fected soon. President Kinsella is
said to be willing to dispose of his
holdings and retire from the local
It Is the intention of the promoters
of the stock company to interest as
many persons as possible, in order to
give the game a boost. No controlling
t-tock will be sold. It is said that Kin

for $4,000. This will inclaude the play
ers under reserve, in addition to a
three years' lease on the ball lot.

It Is estimated that the cost of
stand to replace the one consumed
by fire last summer.
In the reserve list of players Man
ager Dick Smith is listed, and If he re
turns to Springfield, It Is likely that
he will be named leader of the Sena
tors in 1912. Kinsella Is said to be
willing to retire frcm the game, but is
anxious to have the franchise which
he owns remain in this city.
GROH MAKES GOOD.
Shortstop Henry Groh, who was sold
by Kinsella to Manager McGraw of the
New York Giants for $3,500. probably
will be a candidate for a regular berth
on the Giant lineup next year. Groh
hit the ball in the Three-Tye league,
and after his transfer to New York he
was sent to Buffalo for seasoning. He
continued to meet the pill, and Mc
Graw believes he will be a valuable
player next year.

Quincy, Nov. 4 --If Quincy has a
team in the Three-Eye league next
year it will be backed by a stock com
pany. At a meeting of the directors
of the Quincy Baseball association last
night at Highland park. President Har
ry Hofer announced that under no
consideration would he be identified
with baseball in Quincy next year as

means that it will be up to the base
ball loving public of this city to sub

a canvass of the city. It will be up to

AMERICAN LEAGUE PLAYERS WANT COBB

MEET CALLED OFF
Indoor Events at Y. M. 0. A.
Fail to Create Enthusiasm
ONLY A FEW ON HAND
Promoters and Officials Ready but
Those Who Had Kntered Failed
Baseball Stars on Stage
It was a case of waitine at the Y. M.
C. A. (not the church) with seven! !
promotors of the Inter-Sunday School ;
Athletic association Jast night when1
the first program, including an indoor!
track meet, was to have been run off. t
The numerous promoters and the offl-!
cials of the meet were all on derk at
an early hour in the evening, anxious
for the arrival of the athletes who had
signed the entry blanks. As the hour
of the meet approached, they became
more and more impatient as but one
or two of the dozen who had signed
up to appear had come.
FIX ALLY CALLED OFF,
A half hour after the regular time
for the meet, the event was called off
because there were not enough con
tenders for athletic honors present.
This probably means that the inter-Sunday
school associations will abandon
all efforts to inaugurate an athletic
association during the winter months.
The Sunday schools have not cooper-,
ated with the Y. M. C. A. officials in!
the scheme and that is one of the rea- j
sons for the failure. The Fir.-t Bap-j
tist and the Memorial Christian;
schools were the only ones to even re-;
spond to the invitation of the officials. ;

A Tax Exempt Stock That
Pays 7 Dividends
As typical of the best and most up-to-date practice in the central electrical
etation industry in our larger cities, there is no investment more worthy of
investigation than the stock of the Commonwealth Edison Company of Chicago.
Notwithstanding its astonishingly rapid growth and its present strategic position,
this Company is as yet doing only a fraction of the business that it will do
in the near future.
The Coi imon wealth Edison Company is at present retailing electricity in a
territory that covers 200 square miles, but that territory is only "tapped," so to
Epeak. There is expert authority for the statement that three times the present
volume of business should naturally come to the Company's Central Station.
Yet, gigantic as is the retail business of the Commonwealth Edison Company,
it forms only one-third of its total business, two-thirds of which is wholesale. It
supplies electricity to 12."0 miles of street and elevated railway track and its ser
vice to smaller Central Stations extends bo miles to the north, 55 miles to the soutli
and 35 miles to the west of Chicago.
A very considerable portion of the Company's wholesale business is concerned
in the sale cf electricity for light and power to manufacturers. In this field there
is still opportunity for avast increase of business in replacing pri. ate power plants
with the more economical Central Station service
The Commonwealth Edison Company represents an investment of over
$70,000,000, and is paying dividends at the rate cf 7co per annum on its capital
stock. The future prospects of this stock are indicated by the recent advance in
the dividend rate from d'fo to 7. At the present market price of about $130.00
per share, the net return to the investor is atout Ti. While the stock was pay
ing 6 dividerds it sold at average prices that yielded a f,maller net return. This
justifies us in the belief that Commonwealth Edison stock is now a more desirable
investment than ever before.
Commonwealth Edison stock is listed on the Chicago Stock Exchange.
We recommend this stock as an investment of exceptionally high character,
paying 7 dividends, and as being exempt from taxation under Illinois law.
Full information will be gladly supplied in answer to all inquiries.
