VOTE BY PEOPLE
Union Electric Telephone Com-
pany Has Petitions Out for
STILL DESIRES TO SELL
Colls Upon City Commission to Pass
Ordinance to That Kffcct
Representatives of the Tnlon Elec
tric Telephone company today began
the circulation of petitions directed to
the city commission and calling upon
that body to pass without delay or
submit to a vote of the people an
ordinance giving the company the
right to sell out. The ordinance,
sought Is similar In nearly every re
mpect to the one which was defeated
at the recent election hut at that time
It was proposed by the Central Union
Telephone & Telegraph company
which was seeking permission to buy
the plant of the almost defunct cor-
SEED FOURTH OF VOTERS.
In order to insure the matter being
brought before the voters of the city,
25 per cent of the said voters' sign
tures will have to be secured on the
petitions now in circulation. From
the result of the vote at the last elec
tion the Union Electric people have
no doubt as to their ability to get the
required number in a short time.
That will mean about 1,500 to 2,000
SALOONS CAUSED DEFEAT.
It is the belief of the circulators of
the petition that at the election in
October, the telephone proposition
suffered by reason of the fight over the
proposed raise in saloon license fees.
They believe that had the ballots been
separate, there would have been fewer
"noes" registered on their proposition
and many more In the affirmative.
The proposed ordinance contem
plates the filing of a $10,000 bond to
be renewed annually and to insure the
dty against damage which may result
in the future from the operation of
the company's plant regardless of who
Is the owner at the time; and second
ly, asks the privilege of selling out to
the Central Union or other parties.
