Mr. Rhoades on behalf of the tele phone people stated that the company proposed to establish and maintain an exchange in Hamilton that would be open night and day; that will connect with both the long distance and rural systems and which will necessitate an expenditure of $5000 and will furnish employment for a superintendent, one line-man and two operators. He said that this plan would fall through and the exchange would not be established if the two per cent assessment was in sisted upon. The oroposition was finally brought to a vote, Howley, Flaherty, Coffey and Southwick ycrting in favor of striking out the amendment and Lock all C. by wood against it. The mayor has re fused to approve of the resolution, which action will serve to hold up the election, the date of which was set for May 20, at least temporarily.
