Officials of the Cumberland Telephone & Telegraph Co., E. E. Bawsel, gen eral manager, Cbas. M. Nininger, super intendent, and O. T. Tickard, district manager, were in the city last week conferring with the committee repre senting the Board of Mayor and Alder men and Union City Business Men's Club with respect to some changes in our local system, or rather with tbe idea of transplanting the old system with what is known as the central en ergy or flashlight system. Some time ago, it is remembered, an agreement was submitted by the Telephone Com pany, making provisions ior aavancea rates until the number of 1,200 sub scribers was .reached and then for an other advance to go into effect, to be signed by the subscribers in Union City, or a majority of them. At the confer ence the committee let it be known that there were objections to this agreement. In the first place the rates were not eat isfactory, and the agreement itself was an objectionable feature. Mr. Bawsel and bis associates came back last Fri dav with some modifications in the proposition. He proposed that the com pany would agree to put in the central energy system, which involved the dis carding of the old system entirely, at the following rates: Special lines for residences, $2 per month, with privilege of desk set with out extra cost; , duplex lines for resi dences, with two subscribers on tbe same line, $1.50 each per month. With the duplex line the call for one resi dence does not effect the other phone by ringing its bells, the only incon venience being that the two subscribers cannot use the line at the same time. If one of the subscribers desires to talk while the other is on the line it simply involves a little delay. With that ex ception there is no difference between the special and the duplex line. The business phones will be $3.50, with tbe privilege of a desk set without extra charge. Mr. - Bawsel entered into a detailed statement concerning the business, showing the net earnings of the com pany for the Union City plant to be less than 5 per cent, per "annum, and stated that the old schedule of rates could not be maintained with the new system. He therefore proposed the modified rates, as above. Our com mittee stated that the telephone peo ple, if they felt disposed, could put in the new system, at these rates, subject to the approval of the State Railroad Commission, and if they were so rati fied there was very little probability of protest on the part of our people. But we were not prepared to enter into a signed or oral agreement of any kind. Whereupon Mr. Bawsel , concluded that Ua pn City people and the tele phone people were on mutual ground' and that he would return to head- J quarters and make recommendations in accordance with our wishes. ; Mr. Bawsel is the successor of Mr. j Woodruff, and all throe of the oflieialsl were very courteous and pleasant gen- tlemen. There is no" likelihood that'' Mr. Bawsel's recommendations will not ., be concurred in, and the prospects are that Union City is soon to have the cen tral energy or the flashlight system Since then we have unofficial informa-, tion that the new system will be ordered; for Union City.
