Tho old fashioned Trust phone
service In Chicago Is getting worse
every day. Patrons nro constantly
complaining of it. Wrong numbers
are constantly In ovldcnco; the busy
signal Is given frequently for a "wrong
number", whllo the phone that 1b
called Is not busy at all. Some of the
operators are impertinent. Others of
them aro incompetent. All of this
works for a loss of business, tlmo and
patience. The whole system is an
tiquated, and out of date. It Is only
retained because tho old company Is
more Interested In piling up dividends
than It Is In serving the people.
Tho phono trust gave In on Its de
mand for a nickel for telling people
tho tlmo. How considerate!
Tho taxpayers of Chicago are
beaten out of thousands of dollars
annually by the tolephone tru..
Everybody knows that In all outly
ing districts and even In some locali
ties In the loop district, the telephone
trust Is not required to bury Its
wires. Costly brick, asphalt and ce
ment alleys aro laid all over the city
In which telophono poles aro erected
and are permitted to stand. Who is
In on this graft?
Tho tolcphono trust Is away behind
tho tlms. It is behind tho times be
causo it would cut Into Its eight per
cent annual dividend to bo abreast
of tho times. Tho spirit of tho times
calls for automatic service. England,
long backward in telophono service,
is forging ahead of ub by Installing
tho automatic system in all of her
largo cities. Tho automatic system
gives instantaneous service, without
mistake. Tho trust system is tho
limit In mistakes, backwardness and
