Message: It becomes nessary for
me to ask of you space to reply
to Mr. Erdel. After talking with
some of the Mexico iwople and
some of the subscribers to the Aud
rain County Mutual Co. I find
that there is something worse
wong than I thought.
Mr. Erdel talks of iny telephone
stories and bog stories, but after
all be doesn't go fur enough along
certain lines. If ho has been chie
cook and bottle washer of his
company only two years ho knows
but little about our dealings with
that company, as his statements
seem to show all the way along.
As to the Audrain County Mu
tual, be says I was off the track.
I think not. I think it just a re
production of the old company, as
I have talked to souio of the Mex
ico people nnd they say that they
can't get anywhere over that sys
tem; the reason that they 'don't
want it. I am .satisfied it has cost
that company as much to operate
since they cut the East End off as if
they had gone on with mutual con
nection. As to btat contract Mr
Erdlo can't seo it yet. Of all the
mutual telephone companies that 1
know of that company is the only
one I ever knew that bad to have
a written contract for free mutual
service. Their attorney at one
time looked it over and said it
wasn't properly worded, so then
the toll of 15, 20, and 25 cents
went on. That was before Mr.
Now I understand that your com
pany, the Audrain County Mutual,
has raised its assessments, or is
wanting to raise tlictn, to run on.
I hope this isn.t on account of so
much business from the East End.
(We have lowered ours.)
Mr. Editor, you know I an
swered the man from Centralia,
when Mr. Erdel butted in. It
looks as tno a guilty conscience
needs no accuser, as ho said that
he and I took issue in regard to the
Mexico situation and that I would
take another proposition. It has
been the same one all the way,
and is yet. Nor have I got my
wires crossed either as he states,
and as one may seo if lie has both
situations to view from. But it
would be much easier to uncross
my wires u nicy were crossea
than it would be to uncross his
Now my highest regards to the
Editor and best wishes to Mr.
Erdel in his telephone business. I
am for the mutual telephone, free to
all who are interested in the same.
