Ho said ho favored tho Wilson sug gestion as a law ot Illinois. "There is no doubt Governor Wil son's proposal Is the right method," Bald Mr. Dunno. "It does no good to flno tho owner ot a monopoly.

The fact is dawning upon the pub lic that the Phone Trust hangs on to Its antique and out-of-date equipment just to keep prices up. The older the kind of Instrument in use the easier it Is to pile up a lot of figures, prov ing the great cost of maintenance, and this great cost has to be added to the telephone bill of the subscriber. The only reason why the telephone Trust will not use the automatic sys tem Is because It can make more" money out of tho public with its anti quated service. England has adopted the automatlo service, and so has far away Australia and New Zealand. The Trust Is so busy garnering a great fortune from the peoplo of Chicago that all that It wants lo a number of friendly aldermen, and "tho people be d d." Every effort lo being made by tho Trust to oloud the real situation and get away with another schedule ot high prices. Every subject except the real ono overcharge of telephone rates is brought up by tho company's agents at Council Committee meet ings.

Twenty-fifth warders should see that he is re-nomlnated and re elected. Anson H.

O'Connor, tho well known attorney and State Senator from the Twenty-ninth District, is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Judge of the Superior Court.

If the Council abolishes the flat telephone rate for the reason that the telephone trust asks it to abolish It, then the Council should order tho , company to give a rebate of two cents upon every five-cent call. The tele phone trust complains that flat rate phones Increase its burden 25 per cent. That users of flat rate phonos only pay one and a half cento a call, while the wholo service, medium . IRWIN R.
