THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, JUNE 5, 1911.
OVER FOR WEEK
Commission Listens to Opinions
of Citizens and Wants to
OFFER FOR PLANT $300,000
Attorney Asks That . City . Accept
$3500 Instead of $10,000 De
manded for Release.
In order that the citizens of Rock
Island may be given ample oppor
tunity to state their opinions in re
gard to the telephone situation andJ
a to whether or not they are In fa
vor of the sale of the defunct Union
Electric Telephone & Telegraph
company to the Central Union com
pany, the city commission this morn
lng decided to lay over for consid
eration next Monday morning the
resolution which was presented by
the Union Electric people giving
them the privilege to sell.
The proposition was formally pre
sented to the council at the session
this morning by C. L. Walker, at
torney for the Union Electric com
Pliny owiier, Charles L. Bailey, Jr.
Mr. Walker thoroughly explained to
the council the matter of expendi
tures which had been made since the
company came Into the hands of the
man whom he represented. lie said
that almost $700,000 had been Bpent
on the plant and that with an immed
iate sale, the owners could realize no
more than half of their Investment.
He said that the low rates which
were established were responsible
for the failure of the company to
successfully cope with circumstances
and to give to the people of this city
and the trl-cities, good service. At
the present time, the company is ex
pending from $1,200 to $1,500 per
month for maintenance and salaries
to keep the plant in operation with
less than 4 00 telephones.
OFFER IS 9300,000.
The Central Union company has
offered $300,000 for it and that will
allow the owners to realize some
thing like 40 to 50 per cent on their
investment. lie said that in his
opinion, $10,000 was too much for
the company to pay for the privilege
of discontinuing business and that
if it was necessary to pay Rock Is
land that amount, the same amounts
might be demanded In Mol'ne and
Iavenport. He asked that the coun
cil consider $3,500.
The passage of the ordinance does
not mean that the company must dis
pose of its holdings to the Central
I'niiin company but as the proposi
tion of that corporation is the best,
It Is more than likely that It mill be
taken up if opportunity presents.
There Is a question. It is claimed, as
to whether or not the Union Electric
people can be held to the old ordi
nance under which it operated in the

was to come up before the commis
sion today and were present. H. E.
Casteel of the Hock Island National
bank, Btated that though the city
finances were at a low ebb, it would
be better to compromise on $5,000
In order that the company would
los as little as possible and also
insure to the city at least that
amount. He stated that so far as he

knew there had been no competition
in the telephone field and that ser
vice afforded by the Central Union
could be little worse than at present.
Therefore, there Is little to lose In
point ofservice. In his opinion. He
further stated that the citizens had
had several years now to grasp an
opportunity which would mean live
competition in the field, but had fail
ed to realize it. He takes that as
an augur that the people are well
satisfied with but one telephone.
W. A. Rosenfieid, president of the
Rock Island club, suggested that the
Central Union be allowed to purchase
with the understanding that they op
erate the other plant. The company
Is seeking to buy the plant to in
crease Its own interest and therefore
should be willing to keep in opera
tion the new plant. He stated that
in his opinion, two phones in any
city were menace, but it la better
"Z v" Z 7
He stated that in time, laws might
be passed providing for inspectors
who shall see to it that the service
and equipment are up to standard
and then two lines will be super
fluous. The granting of the new
franchise does not eliminate other
companies from entering the field
and therefore he favored the grant.
He sa!d that as far as he could see
there is no competition In the tele
phone business for, if there are two
phones In a city, a live progressive
merchant must have both and there
fore pay for both, whereas if there
were but one, the merchant would
have to pay for one and although the
rate might be twice as high as either
of two compeVitive lines, it would be
favorable, for all people would have
FEKI.I3TG PUBLIC PITI.SE.
Mayor Schrlver stated that he had
been Irylng since his inauguration,
to find what the popular sentiment
was on the question but had been un
able to do so. Some business men
are for two phones while others fa
vor one, with the understanding that
better service be demanded. There
never has been any real competition,
for during the life of the new com
pany, it has had but 2,500 subscrib
ers in the three cities together while
the old phone has at least 15,000.
H. S. Cable, president of the Rock
Island Savings bank, speaking from
a personal standpoint, as were the
other speakers, 6tated that he has al
ways had satisfactory service and
that he would have but one telephone
regardless of who owns the plant. He
said that the sooner the bankrupt
plant is gotten rid of, the better it
will be for the city. . He said that
he ever has considered two plants
as a superfluity and that good ser
vice could be obtained without com
petition. NEVER SOCCIIT HC8IXESS.
S. It. Ranson wished to explain
why the new company had never of
fered real competition and stated
that it was because they never tried
to get the business. He stated that
the Trl-Ciy Home Independent Tele
phone company had been ignored by
the new phone people, regardless of
the fact that they had offered $250,
000 for a plant which was appraised
at $125,000. He made a number
of assertions which were later em
phatically denied by several of the
representatives of the new phone
His remarks brought forth a hot
reply from E. J. Burns, who said that
the company for which he'was talk
ing consisted of franchise floaters
who were not open and above board
and were therefore attempting to In
terfere with a matter which was
strictly open and above board. Mr.
Burns stated for the benefit of the
commission the facts in regard to the
Interference by the third company
since the sale was first broached in
DeRoy Wolf asked that the franchise
be Immediately considered, as the
company would within a week or ten
days, be at the end of its rope. He
stated that his employers were will
ing to sell to anyone who presented
the best proposition, regardless of
who the backers might be.
OVKH FOR A WEEK.
Following the statements of the
business men and telephone repre
sentatives. Commissioner M. T. Rud
gren presented a motion providing
that the council consider the fran-i
cnise. Tne motion carried and was
followed by the other that the com
mission should lay the matter over
till next Monday morning when the
public will be given a hearing.

MERCHANTS ENTER PROTEST.
The shows were not put in their
places without considerable protest on

found themselves hemmed in by the

was made to the members of the com

the permission had already been given

get off the main streets.
The Patterson shows are in the na

They have the usual list of curiosities,
monstrosities and freaks with them,
and in addition there are other shows

SOME DAMAGE IS
DONE BY THE WIND
Elevator Shaft Is Blown Down and
Plate Glass Windows Are
Smashed to Pieces.
The rain and wind and hail storm
which struck this city at an early
hour Sunday morning did some little
damage before it departed on its
way. Numerous windows in resi
dences throughout the city were
broken and many limbs were broken
and blown from trees. A large false
structure elevated in the street In
front of the new Rock Island club
building which is now in course of
erection, was blown down and smash
ed. The structure was to be used
as an elevator shaft with which to
carry materials to the upper floors
of the club building and it was about
60 or 70 feet high. In falling it
damaged to some extent the trolley
wires of the Elm street and Watch
Tower lines which run past there
The large plate glass windows In the
tailor shop of Glenwood E. Baker on
Eighteenth street were blown in and
smashed into a thousand pieces.
Little other damage was done, bow-
