I believe it to be of the utmost Importance that each farmer be able to communicate directly with headquarters. As time goes on the question of efficient and economical canal opera tion will become more and more im portant. To get the necessary infor mation through our ditchriders is necessarily slow and clumsy anti of tentimes does not serve the purpose. 1 am sure you are all equally ambi tion- with me that the North Side Canal Company shall become the model for efficiency and economy. To accomplish this the telephone ta ab solutely necessary. The Canal Company has a tele phone system which heretofore has been used exclusively for communl cmic.g with the various superintend ents and ditchriders. It is neces sary for maintaining the present company system to employ a super intendent to see that the lines are kept In repair. This man has here tofore also looked after the pumping plants. Now that the pumping com pany is looking after Its own busi ness and has Its own superintendent, we do not have enough work to em ploy our dephone superintendent, and we must cut down ai»d get along with a cheaper man, or must find semething more for him to do. The dorictors of our canal com pany hat.' authorized me to make ibis general proposition to the farm ers on thin tract: 1st. We will furnish the services of Mr. White as superintendent, to assist you in forming your local tele phone associations. In this he will advise you as to the cost of construc tion and the character of the line you should build. 2nd. He will assist In the con st ruction, superintend It for you. and see that your mutual line is well built and is one that will give you 3rd. Our purchasing department will assist you in buying the niateri and supplies necessary for the erection of your lino. We believe we can save you considerable money In buying poles, wire and instruments securing for you the benefit of the wholesale prices. 4th. You will bt, given without charge the right to use any pole line that the company now has in your locality. We hope that you will take advan tage of this offer. I will be very glad tc have you write me on the sub ject and I will arrange for White to meet you just as fast as he can get around. 1 understand that the present Mr. farmers' mutuals are able to secure switchboard connection with the Bell system at a monthly charge of 5Or per phone. This would give you the advantage of being able to talk 1th anybody having similar switch board connections and which include, sc far as I know, all telephones now In southern Idaho.
