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
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,
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
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
