O'Noil. Mr. O'Nell noticed blood

ny's franchise had finally been de
cided against the city, is causing a
great many of Akron's leading cit
izens who wore Interested In the tel
ephone controversy, to wonder bow
A local business man who has been
prominent In the citizens' contest for
lower telephone rates and better
service, saye that while the turn
affairs have taken In court will not
affect the status of the telephone
controversy In the least, as the C. U.
company would have continued in
business here, franohlse or no fran
chise, it ifl IntArAAfltia tn nifa hnw
certain ottv offlclajs, ' and notably
three of the City Commissioners,
apparently 'lald down" on the case
after it had been begun and the city
had been put to a large expense In
The following lucid affidavit, filed
by Solid tor Esgate In behalf of the

ment that was expoctod to win the
