President A. J. Earling, of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway,
together with H. R. Williams, the
general superintendent; C. A. Good
now, the assistant general superin
tendent, and J. H. Hiland, the gen
eral freight agent, spent last night in
Rock Island, coming in from Kansas
City and leaving at 11 o'clock this
morning on a special train for Chi
cago. The party is on a tour of in
spection of the company's lines, and
the presence of the officials here has
given added strength to the belief that
many hold that the Milwaukee and
Burlington are dickering for the joint
use of the passenger and freight de
pots which the latter company is
erecting on Second avenue and Twen
tieth street, the Milwaukee's present
quarters being unsatisfactory and in
adequate. F. (J. Ewald, William Kilpatrick,

Another r'awt Train.
There are several things that arc
likely to come to pass as a result of
a meeting of the officials of the Rock
Island road in Chicago yesterday.
One of them is a new fast Chicago
train, which has been a matter of
speculation for some time past. It is
greatly needed, and there are officials
along the line that have stated that
it was a matter now under consider-

VERY COSTLY COMPETITION.
An Instance Where a Rival Telephone
In support of the position main
tained bv his company as to the cost
and experience of rival telephone ven
tures. Local Manager Roberts, of the
Central Union Telephone company,
calls attention to the following from
the Chicago Post of Nov. 1, which he
Stories of telephone company
financiering and the difliculties en
countered in trying to create local
competition in the telephone business
are interesting to those wno seen to
get the best service in cities, and they
are told by one side and another
where such competition is planned.
Here is one intended as a warning and
which is considered as giving a typi
ial experience: ''
'A prominent and wealthy man in
a western city, having a real or fancied
grievance against the local Bell Tele
phone company, organized with a
party of about twenty of his friends
to drive out the Hell. An expert
promoter hearing of this intention
quickly made the acquaintance of the
man and was engaged to do the work.
It was figured out that an exchange
larger than the Bell could be put in
for $800,000. A prominent trust
company undertook to advance this
amount for the period of one year on
the following terms: At the end of
a year it was to have an option on
the bonds of the company at 80, or
was to be paid the notes at a high
rate of interest covering the amount
'At the end of the year the ex
change had not been completed and
was not ready for operation, and an
other $5C 0,000 was needed. This
sum was arranged for on practically
tho same terms. After considerable
delay the exchange -was partially
opened. The local intluence of the
men backing the enterprise had
served to attract a large number of
subscribers. The trustcompany then
stepped in and astonished everyone
by taking the bonds at bO. I be orig
inal party was left with the stock,
having paid nothing whatever for it.
Another inside party was then or
ganized, consisting of fewer than half
of the original number of men, who
made up a pool and bought back the
bonds from the trust company at 88.
The latter had reali.ed its profit and
was safely out of the deal. Tho in
side men, who were the most promi
nent of the original crowd, then
boomed the exchange and put abroad
such rosy tales-of ultimate profit that
the prices of the bonds went up, and
their friends were let in ou the
ground floor at prices ranging from
18 to 103.
"The exchange was fairly under
way bv this time and it was found
that the service was poor.- It was
first necessary to change all the tele
phones. Then began the process of
rebuilding the cumbersome switch
board, which process has not yet
ceased. It became notorions that the
Jtublic at large would not continue
ong to pay for such service, and for
a great portion of it nothing was paid.
Meanwhile, operating expenses in
creased and the service remained as
poor as ever. The price of bonds
naturally went off under these cir
cumstances, especially as there was
no compactly organized party back of
the deal to keep them up.
"It is announced that the entire
operating apparatus is now to be re-j
rtnilt nnnn a n w nln lint it I tn.
i - -i- i
narpnt tn all vhn ham arnritar! lhul
matters that if it works as well as
the manufacturers allege, it will be
far behind the Bell company's appara
tus. Meanwhile, the Bell company
has continued to increase its ex
change, with only such modifications
in rates as have come in with meas
ured service and more modern appli
ances. lwo-thirds of tho business
public is obliged to pay for two tele
phones, one of which is almost worth
less. The outside districts of the
citv, beyond a small restricted un
derground district, have been planted
so full of poles that in many places
iney resemoie nop neids.
"It is no secret that the promoter,
who was given an executive office in
the company, fixed himself by getting
a rate-oa on materia I purchased dor
ing the period of construction. The
construction company method beinr
too slow for him, he preferred com
missions running from 5 per cent to
10 per cent. To recapitulate: A
trust company got out of the deal
ahead; the original crowd hold the
stock, whatever it may be worth; a
few of tbem made a profit on the
bonds and the promoter was well
taken care of. Meanwhile, a large
number of business people and the
public will worry along with the
three to five-year contracts which
they were induced to sign when a
contract agent guaranteed that the
community was at last to be relieved
from an octopus."
