StIIcltor Richardson Says Hnblncer's Fro-
Jct Mas Impossibility If He InUnds te
Carry It On In tbe Hanner Promised
Protection Boogbt by the Old Compwy.
Telephony in its varions phases
was disenssed before the members of
the street and alley committee last
night by L. G. Richardson, general
solicitor of the Central Union Tele
phone company, who was accompa
nied by Snpt. U. H. Matlock. The
presence' nt these gentlemen before
the aldermen was occasioned by - the
announcement that J. C. Hnbinger,
president of the Mississippi Valley
telephone company, wnicn is seek-
no; a franchise lrora tne city oi Kock
Island, would confer with the com
mittee, and explain the merits of his
Hut Mr. iiubinger aid not mater-
allze. lie had been notified, so it
was claimed by Mayor Knox, who
also failed to arrive hom from
Springfield in time to attend the
meeting. Tbe committee uia not
feel disposed to take any action on the
HubiDger ordinance until ne was
present, so the matter was laid aside
and Mr. liicbardson, of the Central
Union company, was given an oppor
tunity to state his case. Mr. Rich
ardson said that he did not wish to
be understood as seeking to dictate
what tbe committee should do with
Mr. Hubinger's proposition; be sim
ply desired to explain a few
points wmcn mignt prove a great as
sistance to the aldermen in deter
mining tbe sincerity of the new com
pany. Mr. Ricbardson said tht
city's thoroughfares are now strung
with telephone ana telegraph wire
and that additional ones would onh
increase the danger attending sucb
hi dps ; more poles would be necessart
and after all, allowing that Mr. Hu-
binger places an exchange in Rock
Island. Mr. Richardson contended.
how is the pubtic to bo benefited.
when no cannot furnish a service
equal to what is being given now,
and can only exist a short time, if he
is sincere in tbe terms bo oilers tv
prospective patrons. The result
would be, Mr. Richardson said, that
after a year or so the city, do Iter
witn oolos and strung with eur pint-
wires, would have a telephone ex
change on its hands which was onlj
taking op room ana aomg no good.
An ImpowtbttUy Claimed.
Mr. Richardson said that sucb
would certainly be the esse, becaus
to maintain telephone lines on Mr
riublnger'g plan is an impossibility
It was this fact that Mr. Kichardsor
wished to impress on the committee
lie suggested that if the committee
want-d to test Mr. Hu binder's sin
cerity to require him to furnish a
Dona to carry out what be contem
plates in the ordinance, and also
oolige him to construct and main
tain exchanges in Davenport and Mo
line, ana require bim to erect pole

company's. uo:ng tblF, and givmp

ardson said of course the committee.
first satisfied that he can exist,
chould give bim a franchise.
Mr. Ricnudson then explained the
linancial condition of his company
many oi wnoso stockholders reside
in this city. He said the company
has an actnal t-ssh investment of
$7,000,000. Four and 5 per cent had
been realized on the investment, but
that last year the company in order
to carry on necessary improvements
was obliged to mortgage its equip
ment to raise the money. Mr. Rich
ardson aid, however, that if com
petition necessitated it his companv
would cnt rates, regardless of the
loss, until one or the other fbould
fail. Then the company surviving
would put np rates to where there is
pro tit. Mr. Kichardson asked that
the committee give at least consider
ation to his statement and guard
ell against anv attempt which
might bo made to injure the present
company's property and business by
