The Chicago Telephone Company
barges a much lower rental for Its
tMree In suburban towns than It
aoee in the city. Yet the officers of
the corporation have the gall to say
that all of the big gain In Ita service
reported at the annual meeting this
year came from the country. This, of
course, Is a reason for raising the
rates. The following from the Chica
go Dally News shows how the phone
people bank on the reports of the
"Slight gains In revenues were re
ported to the stockholders of the Chi
cago Telephone Company at the an
nual meeting, although there was a
railing off In the profits In the city of
Chicago Itself. This loss was due,
according to President Bernard E.
Sunny's report, to the constantly In
creasing number of "nickel a day"
telephones, the revenue on which av
erages $22.70 per annum as against a
cost of operation, he said, of $28.64,
as fixed by one city expert, and $25.28
as fixed by another city expert. The
pecentage of nickel telephones In
Chicago Increased 86 per cent la 1908
and 42 per cent In 1911. The com-

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 slot machines all over
the city, because people are not losing
enough nickels already.
It wants the people to bear 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 emergoncy 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 monopolyf
Telephone rates are entirely too
high In Chicago. The Aldermen have
a chance to lower them. Will they
Aldermen may rest assured of one
thing and that Is that the Automatic
telephone operated by the Chicago
Tunnel Company is far more popular
than the Trust phono.
The figures prove It.
The figures of tho Dell Company are
misleading as to the number of tele
phones. Whllo their count of phones
Is no doubt correct, It Is misleading
because most peoplo think that this
refers to subscribers. As a matter of
fact, the number of telephones Is less
than 100,000 district subscribers, and
that Includes their lines In suburban
They have been thirty-six years get
ting 100,000 subscribers, while the
Chicago Tunnel Company havo gotten
25,000 subscribers In less than two
This shows that tho public Is with
tho new Automatic Company.
We tnke tho following from page
24 of tho "Report on the Causes of
Municipal Corruption In San Fran
cisco as disclosed by tho Investiga
tions of tho Oliver grand jury and the
prosecution of certain persons fot
bribery and other offenses against the
state," made by a committee appoint
ed by the mayor of that city and pub
lished by order of tho board of su
pervisors, city and county of San
Francisco, January C, 1910:
"Tho Pacific Telcphono and Tele
graph Company bribed the Supervis
ors to prevent the Home Telephone
Company or any other organization
from obtaining a telephone franchise
In San Francisco. N'o attack of any
kind on tho Pacific Tclephono and
Telegraph Company was threatened
by the Supervisors, and tho solo pur-
poso of the crlmo was to maintain a
profit which might bo cut by the
competition of business rivals. The
Supervisors wero paid In all over
fGO.000. Tho managing committee of
the board of directors of tho company
swore beforo tho Grand Jury that thoy
did not know how tho funds were
procured for tho bribery."
This report was signed by William
Kent, formerly a well known alder
man and reformer of Chicago and six
other members of the committee ap
pointed by the mayor of San Francis
co, Oct. 12, 190S.
People who have been helping the
telephone company to pay eight per
cent stock dividends and to ereet
twenty etory buildings want telephone
Chicago people demand a reduction
of telephone rates.
Telephone competition Is what the
peoplo want. w
M. M. Conncry has established a
gnrngo at 2G30 WabaBh avenue which
Is ono of the finest in the city. It will
take good care ot all kinds of automo
biles and Is fully equipped to charge
Peoplo who nro looking for first
class truck storage or automobile
space, will do well to patronize Mr.
Connery. Mr. Connory Is a brother
of John T. Connery, the well-known
coal merchant, and of Frank D. Con
nery, tho city clork. He Is a lite-long
resident of Chicago and has hosts of
friends in all walks of life.

No Imported beer on roe market to
day has met with greater success than
that handled by August Luchow. The
Original Pilsener, from Pllsen, Bo
hemia, Is sold by this big concern, as
Is also the famous, Wurcburger Hot
brau from Wursburg, Bavaria. These
beers are the favorites at Chicago's
leading clubs, restaurants and buffets.
They are without a peer. The Chicago
offices of August Luchow are located
