Cutting Phone Wire
May Cause Trouble
Several Washington township citi
zens were in Celina Saturday hoping to
meet J. C. Brook hart, President and
General Manager of the Mercer County
Farmers' Telephone Co., to ascertain
what if any authority two certain citi
zens of Washington township had for
cutting the telephone line to the west,
at the Macedon school-hotfse. Spite
work is said to be at the bottom of the
deed, and the men accused of it are
said to have stated that they did the
work. They are township officials.
The matter may lead to legal action.
Mercer County Observer.
The dear old Observer can't tell any
thing straight. It went out of its way
last week, as the above article shows,
to inform Its few readers that some of
its stand-patters of Washington town
ship were in Celina considerably
wrought up by their telephone line be
ing cut and that spite work was at the
bottom of it. It's too bad that the dear
old Observer has to grab at every bit
of gossip that comes floating down the
pike and print it without regard to the
The telephone division, over which
it made undue fuss, was made by the
telephone officers without prejudice or
harm to any of its subscribers, and
was done for the reason that there were
about fifty subscribers on the line in
question and was being taxed beyond
the limit. Both lines are connected to
the exchange central office, and each
have equally splendid service. We
are sure that any human being with a
knowledge of the telephone and a
thimbleful of brain knows full well
that no telephone line can be operated
successfully and give good service with
about 50 phones on one line. If the
Observer's Informants would have
taken a moment's time they could have
saved themselves the trouble of going
to Celina by calling the Observer by
phone, for each end was giving splen
did service to Celina.
