Mr Elliott Explains Why the Increase "Will
be Made
Ileporter: Mr. Elliott, I see, by a
letter to your subscribers, that after
:he first of October, the rental of your
'phones will be materially increased;
tvliilc doubtless this is due to sound
Du-iness reason?, yet as the 'phoi.e
jystem is a quasi-public .affair, would '
/ou object to giving the reasons?
Mr. tCDiott: Not at all. I will be '
)n!y too glad to do so When the ex- '
:lnnge was installed, our people were
o indisposed to "take ou" to a new
hing, and thought themselves so illible
to pay fair rules for service, that
,he price had to be made tempting and
mutually low, aunt me convenience
and value of snch a service could be
properly appreciated. Again, at that ^
;im? ;he prices of ?:03ts, wiro, labor
tnd all ibat was ncces^ary to m^ke a j
elephouc system were estremely low. ,
Since then the prices of post?, wiie,

siabing nearly thirty miles of actual

Mr. J?lJiott: we nave maae arrangements

I possibly could bo in the event of success.
I also desire to return thanks to

Should the opportunity ever
occur I shall tike pleasure in reciprocating.

Had I been thrown in competition
with'younger men the result might
have been quite difleient. It is true
that the present iucumbent has held
office a number of year?, and he obligated
himself t ot to oppose me this
year, but the disparity in our years
forbid that I should say anythiog to
