It was formed for the purpose of constructing, selling, ana dealing in telephones, switchboards, and other electrical appliances, with an authorized capital stock of $250,000, divided into 2,500 shares of $100 each, which stock consisted of $100,000 at Ñ per cent, noncumulative preferred stock, and $150,000 of common stock.
