FIRST STEPS ANNOUNCED TO GET MOERN TELEPHONESYSTEM HERE Rates Which Would Possibly (Go Into Effect If Central Energy System Is Built Given Out in A Letter From Cumberland Telephone Co., To Mayor Sullivan In a letter to Mayor Sullivan the Cumberland Telephone Co. gives some details to the building of a modern telephone system in Boga lusa. For months it has been known that the Dresent system would not be able to handle the (i increased business, and the fact that Bogalusa has, without the shadow of a doubt, become a pet manent and onie of the leading cities of the state, the Cumberland Telephone Co. realizes that it will ut( be only a question of a shbrt time Wi when they would be compelled to de; put in a Central Energy system to Th handle the business in a satisfacto- clE ry manner. Following is a copy of the letter received by Mayor Sul- M, livan. sa New Orleans, La., 6-6-16 Mr. W. H. Sullivan, Mayor, Bogalusa, La. Bt Dear Mr. Sullival: at This is to acknowledge Je receipt of your esteemed favor of Pi May 25th, relative to the inistalla tion of a common battery system in Bogalusa, La. For your information, would say hi that your request has been forward- ec ed to the General Manager and will be given every possible considera- th tion.. a In connection with the cost to this colmpany. I regret that we can not furnish you with the figures at j this time, for the reason that the Engineering Department is now on the work and it will be some little time before they are p)repared to n make a report. Relative to the rates, I would say p that in exchanges where we have converted the system fro . the d Magneto type, such as is now in Bogalusa, to common battery the B 5 following rates have applied, and it s' is my belief that they would apply f ain Bogalusa. A When the system at Alexandria d was converted into common battery the following rates applied: c Within the exchange or corporate limits when such limits exceed the u exchange radius, the rate for resi- n - dence telephones to be $2 per month each, and for business direct line $3.50 per month each until there are 1000 telephones connected to and receiving service from the Al exandria exchange. From and after the time there are 1e 1000 telephones in service the di r rect line residence rate to be $2 per d month each, and for business di t- rect line $4 per month eacfi, until tv there are 1,500 telephones connect 5 ed to and receiving service from 0 the exchange. he From and after the time there I sare 1,500 telephones in service Ct direct residence to be $2 per month I s. each and for business direct 'line of 4.50 per month. re From and after the time there eil are 2000 telephones in service, di he rect residence rate to be 2.00 per m month each, and for business direct line telephones 5.00 per month each. The above being the rates and conditions heretofore approved by the Railroad Commission of Louisi or- aina under similar circumstances at of other points desiring this change of eir service in the state. fr. Yours truly, da J. C. Rourke. or Suburban Dist. Mgr. of . , Mrs. T. Andrews entertained a a number of guests at her home on Michigan Ave., T'uesday evening. Music was supplied by Frank Tilton piano and Newel Tilton, drum. lay Delicious refreshments were served, us- and all spent a very pleasant even ing. WILSON AND MARSHALL AGAIN LEAD'DEMOCRACY Only One Vote Cast Against President At Convention St. Louis, June 15-At six min utes before midnight Woodrow Wilson was renominated for Presi dent by the Democratic convention. The nomination was made by ac clamation. Two minutes later Thomas Riley Marshall was renominated in the same manner for Vice-President. The nomination of Wilson was not unanimous-quite. Robert E. Burke. of Illinois, voted "no," when at 11:64 Senator Hughes, of New Jersey, moved to nominate the President by acclamation. When Burke, who came to St. Louis for the express purpose of voting against Wilson, had shouted his "no," Chairman James thunder ed: "I declare Woodrow Wilson to be the nominee of this convention by a vote of 1,092 to one." Wilson and Marshall will be sent into the campaign on a platform which declares: For Americanism and against " ' hyphenated Americansism. For the enfranchisement of wo men....bv the States. For ,continuance of 'the present policy in .Mexico. For a continuance of the Presi dent's; foreign oolicy. For all the declarations of the e Baltimore platform, save the anti t second term plank, and the plank favoring the exemption of tolls for American ships passing through the a Panama canal. They are deftly dodged in the preamble cf the de d claration. A demonstration lasting 45 min e utes followed the placing of Wilson's'A name before the convention by h Judge Westcott, of New -Jersey. The same jurist made tle nominat e ing speech at Baltimore. O I- Lost-But Happy e Dr. Rose, professor of Chemistry - of the Texas University while motor ing with other parties to North - Carolina got lost from the other cars il and landed in BoQalusa Saturday t night. When he arrived at the Pine STree Inn he decided it was such a revelation that he would remain re here for several days. "To find sudh ea hotel in a city the size of Boga thlusa is very unusual" the doctor e said, "and the meals and service are such that I am sory that I did not re make my plans t6o stay here instead li- of going to North Carolina. How er ever I am going to remain here Ct until Monday and see 'The City h. Unusual." s Cutting Down Hills of Two of the big hills betCeen North Bogalusa and Columbia street have been cut down, which has caused much favorable comment by the tax pavers of the city. Work on graveling the streets is Sprogressing nicely, and before long, on the gravel roads will circuit the ng. most of the city. ton im. ed, Mrs. Suddith of McComb, is visit en- ing her son, Rufus Suddith of Mklb gan Ave.
