THE ARGUS, MONDAY, MARCH 12, 190G.
IS STILL IN AIR
End of Controversy Between Cit)
and Telephone Company
RATE AND TAX UP TONIGHT
Question cf Giving Union Labor the
Preference May Hang the Ordi
nance Litigation the Alternative.
Still there remains a considerable
difference between the Central Union
Telephone company ami the city coun
cil. Proceeding furtfier on the princi
ple of compromise there has been an
indication that the council might de
mand 1.-SS from the company in the
way of rates rmd taxes, tut there is an
inclination to Ih1 I out ;n the question
of union labor. The company agrees
not to discriminate against this class,
l ut some of the aldermen desire tt ex
act more than this.
As the situation is at present the
company lias conceded to the city the
use of phones to the amount of $1.2'
annually and others at half rate; the
putting of the system underground in
the fire districts at an exp use of $;o.
" as estimated by the company's ex
pens; the termination of the perpetual
franchise difficulty, and the use of two
ducts in the underground system and
Pd.-s in all parts of the city for the
str'nsing of wires for the police patrol
ami tire alarm system. In return the
council ha. receded Lorn ks domand
that the c.-.-mpany keep up the Ore
alarm system, and forfeit its property
rp-n transfer of stock to competitor.
The question of rate mid tax v.iM be
up again tonight and it can not be fore
told what the prie. of the compromise
may be t- either the company or the
Ieaf lard at Gilmore's.
