The annual business meeting of the
Crescent Telephone company, a mutual
concern operating in the upper end of
the county, was held this week at Port
Byron. The reports showed the com
pany to be in flourishing condition, and
with the assessments this year the of
ficers hope to be able to clear up the
remaining debt within 30 days. Each
stockholder was assessed the same
amount as last year. $2.50 for switch
board dues and $5 for improvements
to the system.
.V40 Collrrted In Dura.
The total amount collected in dues
and assessments last year amounted
to $5,400. all of which was paid out with
the exception of $82.50. The indebted
ness was decreased by $1,200, leaving
only $300, which the company expects
to pay before the end of January.
There are now 550 stockholders in the
Crescent company, and about GOO tele
phones are operated by the system.
New extensions are not contemplated
this year, but the entire system will be
rewired, the old wire having proved to
be poor quality. During the year new
switchboards have been installed at
Port Byron and at Erie, the latter
switchboard doubling the capacity of
the exchange afErle, from which trunk
lines run to Geneseo. Hillsdale, Port
