This offer to sell shares is to help finance the construction of a railway from Kansas City to Port Stilwell (Topolobampo), Mexico, approximately 1,100 miles. The offer is for shares of stock of the International Construction Company, which is building a portion of the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railway in Mexico and Texas. This route is advertised to be the shortest line from Kansas City to the Pacific Ocean. The construction was delayed to find a route over the Sierra Madre Mountains. A route has been found and construction is progressing. The reverse side of the document is a map of the proposed route.
