Timet aaaounceo that there Ha kope of telephone com petition In New York City and tkat Armour, tke great packer of Ckleago la said to be baek of the plan. The Idea la to buy ap oertala fran chises In the State of New York, es pecially to get an entrance Into New York city, aad to give to tke oltlsens the benelt of telapkoae competition and of actually cheap aerrloe. The Idea of cheap telephone service Is going to grow In tke United States, and eventually it la going to be real ised, despite tke power of aay mon opoly or tke prolta of any group of Individuals. It coats lest, or under proper aaa agement would eost less, to send a telephone message thaa to' aaat a letter. There waa a time la tke United Btatoa when private tadlviduala ex plotted tke aialla aad wkea tke eltl sen writing a letter paid froat tea cents to a dollar or more to kave It delivered. Government ewaersklp, economical, buslaesslike saetkoda, have reduced tke price of tending let ters to two eeata all over tke United States even la tke Klondike, waere tke letters are carried oa dot aledgea. And sane, buslaesallke admlnlstra tlon of the telephoae ayateas of tale country, with the latest up-to-date au tomatic methods, would make tele phoning aa cheap as writing letters, and cheaper. That will not come at once, but a very great Improvement will come, and right away. The price charged by tke Bell mon opoly la preposterousthere la no worse form of extortion among all the extortions In the United States. A man who Uvea In the suburbs thirty miles from a big city gets a commutation ticket The railroad carries bla two-hundred-pound body back aad forth twice a day for twenty-five eenta a day. If be waata to talk to bla kouse twice a day tke telephone company charges him sixty cents, and charges for tka wire be sides. In other words, the telephone mon opoly charges more than twice aa much to carry over a wire a auaaa voice, which welgha nothing, aa the railroad charges to carry a two-kaa- dred-pound man over thirty miles of solid steal ralle.

The telephone trust Is the most grinding of the many trusts that exist In tho United States. & It snuffs out competition by the power of Its money and the people aro like so many serfs to be used at Its own beck and call. Tho rising tide of indignation will never subside until the whole tele phono trust and Its aides and abettors aro punished. Charles F. DoWoody, division super intendent in the Department of Jus tice socret service, returned from a trip on which It Is reported he has been gathering information for tho At-tornoy-Goneral regarding tho allogod Bell telephone monopoly. It Is reported that an investigation national in Its scope, is being carried on by tho forces of Attorney-General WIckorshara looking to tho filing of proceedings for tho dissolution of the alleged trust. An exhaustive Investi gation has boon going on in Chicago, it Is said, of tho operations of the Deli syndicate alleged to be In violation of tho Sherman law, "You have been West It is under stood for tho purposo of getting data bearing on the alleged telephone trust, have you not?" DoWoody was asked, "That Is a matter that I cannot possibly discuss. There is nothing that we can announce regarding any such Investigation," was tho reply. We tako the following from page 24 of the "Report on the Causes of Municipal Corruption In San, Fran cisco as disclosed by the Investiga tions of tho Oliver grand Jury and the prosocutlon of certain persons for bribery and other offenses against the state," made by a committee appoint ed by the mayor of that city and pub lished oy order or the board of su pervisors, city and county of Saa franclsco, January 6, 1810: " "The Paclfl Telephone and Tele graph Company bribed tke BaparvfaV ora to prevent tke Home Telepkoaa company, or any otaer orgaakatloa from obtaining a telepkoaa fraaehlee la San Francisco. No attack of aay kind on tke Paclflo Telepkeae aai Telegrapk' Company waa tkraateaei by tke Supervisors, aad tke tola pur pose of tke crime waa to malatala a profit which mlgkt be cut by tke competition of business rivals. Tke Supervisors were paid la aU over 150,000. The managing committee of the board of dlrectora of tke eompaay swore before tke Grand Jury tkat tkey did not kaow kow tke funds ware procured for the bribery." This report was slgnsd by William Kent, formerly a well kaowa alder man and reformer of Chicago aad six other members of the committee ap pointed by the mayor of Baa Francis co, Oct IS, 1908. Chicago Dally News editorial, De cember 19, 1911: It hat been the aim of tke telephone company to do away with unlimited service as far as possible aad to re quire all users 'of Its Instruments to go on the measured aervlee" basis. Op position to tko measured service plan Is aroused whenever a patron of the telephone company la .-made to pay two tolls where one should be suffi cient -' - The ordinary person In attempting to telephone to a railroad passenger station, for example, Is likely to ask for. the wron'g. number for the purpose of his call, for so confusing Is the array of titles and numbers la the telephone directory that It ,1s often difficult to decide upon the department that Is wanted. Frequently the Infor mation bureau at a railroad station, when appealed to, refers the Inquirer to. another telephone number In the same building. This necessitates the payment of a second toll. Telephone operators are careful to prevent the second call from being made without the payment of a second nickel. Both the railroad companies and the telephone company should do their best to see that the arrangement of department names In the telephone di rectory Is sufficiently clear to enable Inquirers to call the first time for the number they really want The city ought to have a bureau of complaints to which appeals for the Improvement of faulty conditions of service might be made by patrons of local public utility corporation. Penny telephones are to be estab- usnea in Detroit ana there Is no good mnn hy they should not be estab Bbm Chicago. The following TTTTirom Detroit explains Itself: "Reduction of local telephone rates 60 per cent for the average user, elimination of the distinction between 'residences' , and 'business' telephones and the establishment of a rate of $3.30 per month and 1 cent each for outgoing messages In excess of 200 por month on single party lines, with no limit on Incoming 'calls,' are pro vided for In an ordinance, on which a common council committee began hearings." Telophono rates are entirely too high In Chicago. The Aldermen have a chance to lower them. Will they do It? ,. Tho penny telophono will come in time. Lower rates on all phones are demanded. It Is reported that the telephone company has hit upon a new scheme for the extraction of tho nimble nickel from the clothes of customers. ' The new scheme Is called the "short ring." Heretofore when a call was made the tolephone bells Jingled a long time or until they wero answered. Now, In some parts of the city they aro barely tapped. Of course it the party called does not hear the mild ring or takes the sound for a "enossed wire," or a "mis take," tho caller has to try It over again and drop another nickel. This nickel movement Is a great thing. In fact, In Chicago the telephone company has discovered the richest nickel mine on earth. A telophono company that pays eight per cont dividends on twenty- nlno millions of stock Is making too much money. The people are paying too much for telephone service, POLITICAL TALK e Heard from tht Various Camps During tha Wtak About Men Prominent in Politics. What the Leaders Are Doing and What People Have to Say About Them. There wero 112.327 votes cast at the Aldcrmanlc primary. Of these the Democrats polled 75.125 and tho Re publicans 36,689.

Judge Dunno returned to Chicago on Tuesday after a tour of twelve counties and four congressional dis tricts In southern Illinois. He ex pressed satisfaction at tho cordiality of his receptions and. predicted he would poll a large vote down the state. Alexander H. Revell, the Chicago merchant, chairman of the Roosevelt national committee, strongly urged the necessity of banking and currency reform legislation at a conference at Peoria of the Illinois section of the National Citizens' league. Mr. Revell discussed In detail the bill of the na tional monetary commission and pleaded for a nonpartisan, unpreju diced discussion of Its merits. .Chicago will have the longest ballot this year of any city In the country.

Thomp son, who Is espousing the candidacy of John E. W. Wayman. and that Mr. Clark was to bo a candidate against Thompson for ward committeeman. As many of the Deheen men In the organization are friendly to Mr. Thompson as ward committeeman, Mr. Clark decided to withdraw from leadership In the organization after announcing that he was not fighting Mr, Thompson, but was opposing Mr. Wayman In tho ward. Nominate William D. Munhall for municipal Judge.

"Theso laws," Bald the governor, "cover such subjects as the health, comrort and safety of mon and worn' en employed In. different kinds of mercantile establishments, mills and workshops; the affording of additional protection to men engaged In struc tural work; the requiring of the bet ter safeguarding of hazardous and dangerous machinery, and tho use of safety devices in connection with machines employed In the metal pol Isblng trades, and other Important matters." Nominate Ambrose A, WorBley for municipal Judge. J. C. Vaughan, Democrat, and James R. Mann, Republican, aro unopposed for their party nominations for con gress in the Second district. They had a closo fight In 1910, when Vaughan cut down tho Republican majority by soveral thousands, Four weeks now before election. William D. Munball's candidacy for Municipal Judge Is growing In strength every day. His long and hon orable record 1b well known and the Democrats will name a winner when they nominate htm. James J. Townsend Is the choice of the Democrats of tho Ninth District for State Central Committeeman. His petition has been filed and that he will win is a certainty.
