receipt of a letter from E. G. Lea
zynsky, president and general man
ager of the International Telepone
Construction company, of Chicago,
in which, while stating that he does
not wish to cast reflections on
Messrs. Bond, Crawford and Smith,
he significantly says that , there are
many persons securing franchises for

Dear Sir: We are in receipt of
your favor of Feb. 4, in reference to
tne Harrison telephone franchise.
Messrs. Crawford. Bond, etc., are
the parties to whom the franchise
was granted, ana were in our em
ploy when they applied for this fran
chise, ana we have, over their own
signatures, that if the franchise was
granted it would be in our interests.
Now we do not wish in this letter to
cast any reflections upon the intent
or purposes of these parties, who are
no longer in onr employ, nut we
think it is our duty to inform you of
the condition ox this matter.
Your people undoubtedly granted
this franchise with a view of obtain
ing cheaper telephone service and for
the purpose of the Harrison Tele
phone company putting tn a plant.
and, of course you do not wish your
intentions frustrated. We stand
ready to carry out our part of the
business and have applied for the
franchise with that intention.
There are some people who are ob
taining franchises throughout the
country lor speculative purposes.
We know this to be a fact, because
hardly a day passes but what parties
of that description come to this office
and offer ns franchises tor sale at
anywhere from f 25 to $200. We are
not in this line of business and a
franchise is of no earthly value to us
unless it is to carry out the purpose
lor which it is granted.

into a room where there was a man and
his wife and a little baby, all asleep.
Tbe baby was in a cradle that stood at
the foot of the bed. Not far from tho
cradle, standing against the wall, was

was of value in the bureau, and then
turned to the baby. I couldn't help it
