and Telegraph Company
Aside from owning and directly operating all the long distance and toll
lines, the-great work (and substantially the entire expense) of the Amer
ican Telephone & Telegraph Company is the administration of the affairs
common to all its subsidiary companies. These comprise all the oper
ating Bell Telephone Companies in tbs United States and Canada, in
cluding also the Western Electric Co. These it controls by a majority
stock interest. At oca expense with one effort, it solves a problem
perfects a system terts, and adopts or rejects an invention or innovation;
and the result serves for all its companies. Thereby it economizes time,
effort, labor and expense, and preserves harmonious uniformity of con
struction, equipment and operation throughout the united Bell System.
The Astonishing Growth Due to This
is best shown by comparing figures from the annnal report of Januay
1st, 1909 with 1900, just prior to the acquirement of the business and
property of the varices Bell Telephone Companies.

that within the last two weeks we
have increased our chances of carry

"So loud is the public protest
against the enormities of the Payne-

republicans put forth one of their crack
orators, Mr. Boutelle of Chicago, to
deliver a campaign speech in defense
of that odoriferous measure. It is
supposed that his is only the Initial

in the matter of an agreement con
cerning the Wilson Coal company of
Washington, wherein it would have
become necessary for the claimants to

5. That within two weeks after
Balllnger had directed Glavis to make
a "thorough investigation" of the coal
cases, they were "clear listed" by the
general land office acting upon a re

four months before and in the office at

been commissioner and had had an op

them over to his assistant for action.

7. That Ballinger requested Glavl3
not to resume the Investigation until
after the election in 1908 because he

to the patenting of the coal claims.
