WILDER MUST HAVE BETTER ATTENTION State Utilities Commission Notifies Public Service Companies to Get Busy. Increased telephone and power and light facilities for the village of Wil der, on the Caldwell Traction com pany's line, south of Caldwell, will probably be the result of a visit last week to that place by George E.

Mr. Erb Wednesday addressed let ters to the Parma Telephone company and the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph company urging them to report at once what possibilities are for obtaining installation of an ex change at that place. Demands Better Service. "We find telephone facilities in the village of Wilder far from satisfac tory," his letters state. "The village is partially served by both the Parma Telephone company and the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph com pany, the Parma company operating through the exchange at Parma, the Mountain States company through the exchange at Caldwell." In a letter to the Idaho Power com pany. Mr. Erb said in part: "We are impressed with the idea that your company should give some attention to extensions in this village. We have in mind particularly the ex tension to serv e the school building, which might be so constructed as to serve a number of patrons now with out service, between the school build ing and present service of your com pany." Sends Company a Letter. Better accommodations for passen gers and shelter for express and freight at various points along the Caldwell Traction company's line is asked in a letter to the company by Mr. Erb The commission will insist that early attention be given to the con struction of some standard, inexpen sive shelter at those points most used for boarding of trains by passengers or delivery of freight or express pack ages and that the commission be ad vised of the location, construction and description of same," the letter states.
