The city council met in adjourn ed session last Monday evening and several important matters were brought before that honorable body .'for their consideration. As stated in last week's News tho mutterlngs of discontent against the telephone company which se'emB co have been growing of late was brought to the attention of the coun cil in the form of a petition which was presented by attorney J. p. Mc Kay and who represented the petitoners. In this petition the South Dakota Telephone Company was charged with violating their franchise in various ways. Some of the contentions were that the telephone company would present a bill for fifty cents more than th'ey are allowed according to the franchise and then instruct that if the bill was paid before the tenth of the current month, in advance, a discount of 25 cents would be al lowed, thereby leaving the amount charged 25 cents in excess of the amount stipulated in the franchise. C. Elling alleged that he was com pelled to, pay a $3 deposit in order to have a phone installed and further more that he had to pay one month's rent in advance which he claimed was in direct opposition to the articles found in the franchise. J. O. John »on was present and informed ths council that he could Very easily ex plain these misunderstandings, but the matter was carried over to the next meeting of the council and the petitioners were instructed to be pre sent and present the petition at that time. The mayor also suggested that the attorney for the petitioners, the ^01ty Attorney and manager Johnson tag^h»fc-«n«%ft the differences rw. could not be adjusted. 1 S. H.
