PANIES MERGE Colorado and Tri-State Or ganizations Now Known as Mountain States Co. Rumors which have been prevalent for some time with reference to the acquiring of the Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company properties by The Colorado Telephone Company are confirmed by the action of the Board of directors of the former com pany at its meeting held recently. A few days ago The Colorado Com pany merged with its associate com pany to the south —The Tri-State Tel ephone and Telegraph Company, which has heretofore operated in Southelrn New Mexico and Eastern Arizona. The merged companies were re-chrlstened The Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company and the capital ■tock Increased to $50,000,000; and the first act of the new corporation is the acquiring of The Rocky Mountain Bell properties by purchase. The official announcement of the reasons for the combination, as furn ished at the headquarters of The Mountain States Company at Denver, is as follows: "To those who are familiar with the financial and operating methods of The American Telephone and Tele graph Company, the combining of the properties of The Colorado Telephone Company, The Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company and The Trl- State Telephone and Telegraph Com pany will be no surprise. All license Bell Telephone Compan ies are free from stock-jobbing meth ods and all additions to plant are made with funds realized from the sale of their securities, and not from their earnings. More than this, se curities are not sold in excess of the actual amount invested in the Business so no ele'ment of water is permitted to enter into such financing. Recently The Colorado Telephone Company Teached the limit of its capitalization so that a re-capitalization became nec essary to it. The Tri-State Telephone and Telegraph Company was similar ly situated and The Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company has for sev eral years felt the need of an entire re-organization. What, then, more natural than that the reorganization take the form of a merger of the prop erties to be capitalized on a conserva tive basis and at figures which will Jnsure reasonable returns to investors and equitable rates to the public. The new corporation is capitalized at $50,000,000, but less than half this amount will be Issued against the pro perties and an actual excess of physi cal property will be maintained over the amount of stock issued. There will be no preferred stock and no bonds, and no attempt will be made to pay dividends In excess of what the pablic might consider reasonable and honest.

I take pleasure in confirming everything that was then said in praise of this remedy. 1 was bothered a great deal by ray back and kidneys and 1 was unable to rest well, as no position I assumed was comfortable If I caught cold or worked hard, a constant backache resulted and I was also bothered by irregular passages of the kidney secretions. Itrled a number of remedies, but no improve ment followed until I took Doan's Kidney Pills. They drove away all my pains and aches and restored my kidneys to their proper working or der.

Mr. Crossley says that Colorado fruit pack Is not up to tbe standard required by the English and German markets and that It cannot hope to establish itself with the trade across the Atlantic until there Is s material Improvement In the manner of preparing It for mark et. The lack of care In the selection of apple for packing in relation to size, quality, color and general uniformity, acordlng to Mr. 6rossley. Is a very serious mistake on the pert of grow ers and should be remedied at once. Mr. Crossley says tbs Oregon pack la Infinitely better than tbs one in this state, and, for that reason, his firm buys all of Its apples for export In the Hood River district of the north west Canon City apples. In tbs opin ion of Mr. Crossley, are In all respects the equals of the best product of the Oregon orchards, but the inferior method of packing them, he says, hurts them In the more exclusive markets of the world.
