TELEPHONES AT LOW PRICE.
Stamford (N. Y ) Has a Sorvlco That
In an Anomaly.
Stamford, N. Y., Jan. 4. This
thriving town haa n telophouo sor
vico that is an anomaly. Thoro is
not a "kicker" among its subscribers.
Such an extraordinary condition of
affairs cannot bo ascribed to any
thing in tho atrnosphoro of tho Cat
skills, but is duo to tho fact that tho
service costs each patron only 18 pur
year. Stamford, though a village of
about 1000 inhabitants in winter and
a high-tido population of U000 iu
summer, is, as its denizons stylo it, a
"hustling" town. It has a first-class
water supply, a complete system of
sowors, electric lights, and, above
all, a Villago Improvement society,
tho members ot which aro as exact
ing and onorgotic as housowives.
Under their surveillance not a mau
1 in town dares leave his lawn uncut,
and feels utterly miserable if his
' fenco shows tho noed of whitowash.
! Tho movintr spirit in this society
is Dr. S. E. Churchill. Ho is inde
fatigable. It occurred to the doctor
last fall, in tho midst of his manifold
1 affairs, which include an interest in
the local newspaper, the athletic
club, tho bank, the nmnioary, and
the Presbyterian church, that the
town needed a telephone service. '
Twonty residents wore called to-1
gether, who agreed to subscribe $60
each toward, forming a company. It
proved to be all that was needed
and the system is now in successful
operation. With the ,$ 1000 capital
the managers found they could put
a metallic circuit instrument in the '
house of every subscriber, buy
their switchboard, put up poles, j
string wiros, and start thu conversa
tion. The central of the Stamford Tele-
fihone company is in one of tho vil- j
ngo stores, thu proprietor of which
is a salaried officer of tho company.
For $100 a year he guarauteos, as
gonoral manager, to break away '
from tho charmed circlo around tho I
stove in tho midst of tho most enter
taining gossip, or cut short a politi- '
cal discussion even when he has his I
opponent all but convinced, and at
tend to the switch at evory tinkle of ',
the bell. To collect this $100 oach
subscriber is assessed $o a year. Add '
to this tho intorust on thu original
$50, at six por cent, and you havo $3 ,
as tho maximum cost for telephone 1
service in the Catskills. Tho tele
phono itself is to all appearances
similar to tho ordinary affair, save !
taat ine usual signs denoting pa
tont nghtB are lacking. In one re
spoct only is it inferior to tho reg
ular tolophouo, which coats several
times as much per month as this ono
does for a year. In tbo ordinary
telephone the receiver, hangs on a
twp pronged lever, so that when it
is taken down it couuonts tho 'phone,
and putting it back switches on tho
boll. That is still covered by pa
tent. In tho Stamford tolophouo, be
sides taking down the recoivor, one
must move a switch, aim alter haug
iug up tho receiver tho switch must
be moved back again, or tho central ,
ofllce cannot ring the belL to call
that telephono up again. Each in
strument has its own wiro from tho
contra ofllco, and each has tho com-
Eleto metallic circuit. At tho switch- '
oard thoro is a delay of about a
second longer in making a conuoo- I
tiou, than in the regular switchboard,
but Stamford merchants run things
mostly by minutes, and, a fow seconds
moro orjosa do uoLcouut for much.
