Mr. Meeks, representing the South western Telegraph & Telephone Com pany, has been in town this week mak ing a canvass among business men and other citizens soliciting patronage fora new telephone exchange, and although the sentiment of the public, so tar as we have heard it expressed, is very much opposed to the big corporation coming in here and freezing out the local capitalist, we are informed that Mr. Meeks has secured contracts for upwards of forty phones. The Southwestern man was told of this general antipathy, and that the people would not stand by and see Mr. Partridge wantonly despoiled of his business, and be smiled and said bis company has no such intention; that they will buy everything Mr. Partridge owns of a telephone character, paying lum what it cost originally and to erect, and will then, iu addition, pay him to move it off the grounds and get it out of their way, as they will use a different method, etc., So there you are, and what are you g ang to do about it ? No doubt the ^Southwestern (Ameri can) people will put in an exchange. Jt seems to be a foregone conclusion, and it further seems to be their intention to gradually monopolize the telephone | business of the United States. They claim that Mr. Partiidge does not rue th**ir business to suit them, and that they have the right to place it else where, and as they have control of the Bell phones and w ill not connect with any other, it seems to us that they have the big end of the situation, and that our friend Partridge is at their mercy, unless some sort of compromise can be made, or the people return to primitive methods.
