Who Has Dona Much for
residents of Chicago whsn the next
election cornea around.
The Telephone Monopoly la busy
circulating "ugly rumors" about the
Corporation Counsel, the Mayor and
the honest aldermen who are standing
up for the people'a rights.
"Ugly rumors" Is good.
Aldermen who are anxious to learn
the truth ought to Inquire Into the de
tails of the passage of the telephone
erdlnance five years ago'.
Wall, there are some pretty ugly
rumors going the rounds just now.
But the Mayor, Corporation Counsel
and honest aldermen are not the ones
affected by them.
A watchful eye Is being kept on the
situation by too many people to have
It easily' misunderstood.
A new report has been ordered on
the books and accounts of the Tele

It has been the aim of the telephone
company to do away with unlimited
service as far aa possible and to re
quire all users ot Its Instruments to
go on the measured service bull. Op
position to the measured service plan
la aroused whenever a patron of the
telephone company is made to pay
two tolls where one ahould be suffi
cient The ordinary person In attempting
to telephone to a railroad passenger
station, for example, la likely to ask
for the wrong number for the purpose
of hia call, for so confusing Is the
array of titles and numbers In ths
telephone directory that it is often
difficult to decide upon the department
that is wanted. Frequently the infor
mation bureau at a railroad station,
when appealed to, refers ths Inquirer
to another telephone number in the
same building. This necessitates ths
payment of a second toll. Telephone
operatora are careful to prevent the
second call from being made without
the payment ot a second nickel.
Both the railroad companies aad ths
telephone company ahould do their
best to see that the arrangement ot
department names In the telephone di
rectory la sufficiently clear to enable
Inquirers to call the first time tor
the number they really want
The city ought to have a bureau of
complaints to which appeals for ths
improvement of faulty conditions of
service might be made by patrons of

The Telephone Trust doesn't want
much from the City Council.
It only wants the phone rates raised
a trifle. They are not high enough at
present to swell the dividends of the
local and the parent company.
It only wants permission to install
pay-ln-advance alot machines all over
the city, because people are not losing
enough nickels already.
It wants ths peopls to hear more of
Its earning expenses than they do now.
It wants them to deposit a nickel
before they can get police or fire pro
tection on an emergency call.
It wants the city to give it free
rein to carry out its designs on the
It wants a great deal more.
What aldermen will sell out their
constituents to help this monopoly
The telephone trust Is the most
grinding of the many trusts that exist
In the United States.
It snuffs out competition by the
power ot its money and the peopls
are like so many serfa to be used at
Its own beck and call,
The rising tide of Indignation will
never subside until the whole tele

trip on which It Is reported he baa
been gathering Information tor the Attorney-General
regarding the alleged
Doll telephone monopoly,
It Is reported that an Investigation
national In Us scope, Is being carried
on by the forces of Attorney-General
Wlckersham looking to the filing of
proceedings for the dissolution ot the
alleged trust. An exhaustive investi

It Is said, of the operations of the Bell
syndicate alleged to bo In violation of
the Sherman law,
"You have been West It is under

"That Is a matter that I cannot
possibly discuss, There Is nothing
that wo can announce regarding any
such Investigation," was the reply.
The Chicago Telephone Company
charges a much lower rental for Its
service In suburban towns than It
docs In the city. Yot the officers of
the corporation have the gall to say
that all of tho big gain In Us service
reported at tho annual meeting this
year came from tho country. This, of
