Demand for a Five-Cent Rate
is Made in This City and a
Radical Improvement of the
New York Far Behind Other
Cities in the Matter of Cost
oly's Absurd Claims.
Declares the Aiore Business
the Greater Cost, and Yet
is Constantly Soliciting Sub?
(New York Journal.)
It Is the persistent boast of the Now
York Telephone Company, the? (ocal
branch of the telephone monopoly
which extends all over the United
States, that the equipment and service
In this city is the finest in the world.
The fact that telephone service In New
York costs more than similar service
anywhere else on earth should form
Justification for this boast. As a mat?
ter of facl there Is not a second class
city in the United Stales that has not
a better service, and the New York
service Is growing pooler all the time.
Not only is the mechanical Bervtcc
bad. but the employees arc Insolent
and inefficient. To call a number, get
it and complete a conversation with?
out exasperating delays and Interrup?
tions Is the exception rather than the
rule. A protest is met with a cheap
quality of repartee from the ?Irl in the
central office, and a call on the man?
ager generally results in gratuitous
advice relative to the "freshness" of
the unfortunate compelled to use the
The rate for a telephone In this city
is $210 a year. The charge for a single
call in the Borough of .Manhattan is
ten cents for live minutes' conversa?
tion. Tile capital stock of the Ameri?
can Telephone and Telegraph Com?
pany is ?7.",.(100,000, of which about
000,000 is paid In. The corporation has
paid In dividends In twentv vents
nearly $60,000,000?almost twice' as
much as the legitimate capital stock.
The time lias come in New York for
five-cent telephone calls and a service
that will lie a .-. r\ice and not a bur?
lesque, as it is nt present.
Numerous lights have been made in
the Legislature for a telephone service
that would be reasonable In price mid
allow persons desiring to converse
over the wires an opportunity to do
so without difficulty.
LOBBY HAS BEEN ACTIVE.
The. lobby of the New York Tele?
phone Company and of the American
Telephone and Telegraph Company has
prevented the passage of these bills.
The telephone people have asserted
that they are giving as cheap a service
as possible, anil they have set up the
preposterous claim that the more busi?
ness they do the more expensive be?
comes the operation of the system.
A legislative committee, two years
ago, Showed the falsity of this conten?
tion. Inn the New York Telephone t'om
pany sticks to it; nevertheless the New
York Telephone Company has an army
of solicitors out over the city all the
time, striving to Increase business. The
telephone officials are placed In the
anomalous posillon of slating that the
present rates are reasonable and are
barely paying expenses, and still hus?
tling for more business in order that
they may Incur more expense and tints
cut down the profits. If the statement
of the New York Telephone Company
is true It must, with the Increase of
business, eventually operate at a loss.
That live cents is ample charge for
a telephone conversation Of live min?
utes has been proved in many cities in
the United Slates. That a perfect ser?
vice can be maintained nt the figure
has been .h-monsl rated In many cities,
large and small.
That n live-cent rate, to apply
throughout Greater New York, would
pay. Is the judgment of experts who
have built and operated at it profit lines
charging that sum.
OPPOSITION HAS CUT RATES.
Wherever the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company has met with
opposition it has cut rates to meet the
opposition. It has gone so far as to
give telephone instruments nnd ser?
vile away. In some cities the Ameri?
can Company has been competing for
years with independent companies that
charge but 5 cents for a message, nnd
the business has paid in those cities.
In Bittsburg, Pa., there is an excel
le"ut telephone service, controlled by the
Plttsburg and Alleghany Telephone
Company. The cost to subscribers is
from $36 to $4S a year and the company
is making money. The exchanges arc
equipped with the latest improvements,
there is no difficulty in securing con?
nections, and conversation over the
wires is clear and uninterrupted by
In Baltimore, Md., a first-class tele?
phone service is maintained by the
Homo Telephone Company. The rate
to subscribers is the same as that in ]
Plttsburg. All of the latest improve- j
mentS arc used in the company's ex?
changes and stations, and no difficulty
whatever is experienced In carrying on !
conversations. For single calls the rate
is f> cents for five minutes' conversa?
tion, and the same rate applies In I'itts
BALTIMORE COMPANY PROSPERS.
The Baltimore company Is exceed?
ingly prosperous and is branching out
nil the time. It is worthy of note that
this company pays iis linemen 7,"> cent.-,
more a day than docs the monopoly
telephone branch In the same city.
In Oakland, <'nl., nnd In Alameda,
Ciil., ? there are telephone systems that
rent instruments to subscribers for $1.>
a year. The use of the telephone is
almost universal in those towns, and
the companies are coining money.
Down In Charleston, S. C. the tele?
phone monopoly fought to keep out an
independent company for years, and re?
cently lost the fight. The independent
company .placed telephones in business
houses and homes nt rates ranging
from $24 to $30 a year, and the monop?
oly branch, wns compelled to follow
suit. The rate for a call of five minutes
In Charleston is now live cents over the
lines of both companies. The indepen?
dent company Is making- money, the
competition has forcea the monopoly
company to put In a perfect service,
and Charleston never .had so many tel?
The cry of the New York Telephone
Company Is that it costs more to oper?
ate a system in New York than in does
lit any of the places mentioned; that
while a five-cent rate might pay in
Charleston, It would be ruinous in New
York, and that the poor "widows und
orphans" holding stock would be rob?
IT REALLY COSTS LESS.
As a matter of fact It costs less, when
the number of subscribers is taken Into
consideration, to operate the New York
service than it docs In any other city.
The New York Telephone Company up
to it short time ago hud a monopoly of
I the sub-ways. I.teyond the cost of con?
struction Its gigantic web of wires in
this city did not cost a cent. In most
of the cities where cheap telephones
I prevail telephones are furnished free
to the city otrtccs. N cw York city de?
partments pay to the telephone monop?
oly nbout $-3,000 a year for telephone
A system of telephone service that
would allow a customer to put a nickel
In n slot, secure a connection and hold
a live minutes' conversation, would
pay In New York, and the time to in?
augurate such a system is right now.
