THOMPSON SIGNS AUTOMATIC
TELEPHONE ORDINANCE
Mayor Thompson today signed the
ordinance granting the Automatic
Telephone Co. the privilege of selling
its plant to the Chicago Telephone
Co. for several times its physical va
luation. Thompson signed the ordinance
after a conference with Walter L.
Fisher, attorney who conducted a so-
called investigation that resulted in
his agreeing that the desire of the
Chicago Telephone Co. to buy and
junk the Automatic was a good thing
for Chicago citizens.
Fisher explained today that he was
against submitting the proposition
toa referendum vote because he
thought such action might besmirch
the names of the men behind the
deal. Fisher used a lot of diplomatic
tact and fine grammar in saying this,
but that's what he meant in the end.
The tribulations for the telephone
deal are not over. There is a request
in Circuit Court for an injunction
against the consummation of the
deal, and the public utilities board
and the U. S. attorney -general must
yet give their sanction.
