Public at Large.
This is proven every consecutive
mouth by the locreasing incorporat
ing of new companies in all portions
of the union, as proven h records
for the moeth of Dec. 1900, in which
there were incorated 67 new comn
Ipanies with capital ranging from
$2000 to $5,000.000.
The year 1901 is predestined to be
preeminently a telephone year.
rom' the records of 1900, noting
the a4vaacement of Independent
I Telephony, there need be no hesitan
cy in stating that 1901 will be the
banner year of the Independent
movement, and with the closing of

One of the truthful statements of
I the great monopoly is the one it Uat
ters to a city, or town council who
are debating upon granting indepe.n
dent tranebhranc, stating that two com
panies are no good to a community.
But, the truth of this statement
lies in the fact that the Independent
differ from the monopoly in that they
give good service, honest rates and
fair dealings to the public.
This has been the fundamental
principle that made the Independent
movement popular in 1900 and doul
ly so will it be in 1901.
The new year shll see a better
organization of the Independent and
isolated companies, bringing them
together by efficient toll line service,
which, in conjuoction with the good
will of the public will advance it
through a marvellous year.
The manufacturers of independent
apparatus through their competent
corps of eminent electriciase and
mechanical geniuses, have given to
the markets of the world a perfection
of telephone apparatus that is eo
larging civilization and completely
metamorphaslg the habits and cus

To prove the above there will be
mentioned some of the present exist

and movement of this enterprie
