To the Editor of The Tribulu-
' We have all receivtd the invitntion
to the opening of the Telephone Ex
change to occur the day before tho
election on the franchise matter, nnd
tho letter urging us to vote for the
resolution which the council passed. In
the letter signed by the manager of tho
Telephone Company it is stated that
j neither the Nebraska Telephone Com
Ipany or the North Platte Telephone
Company '"can raise its ratc3 without
the consent of the people and the rail
This statement is made by the Telt
phone company for tho purpose of in
ducing tho people of North Platte to
vote in their favor on this question,
but the statement is absolutely ind
entirely false, as far ns the consent of
tho people is concerned. It is true
that the rates cannot be raised without
the consent of tho Railway Commission
but tho consent of the people is not
ovon necessary and never is asked and
the rates always ore raised against
their consent. At the present time tho
Nebraska Telephone Company is hav
ing a contest before the Railway Com
mission with the citizens of Lexington
upon the question of raising the rates
Wo in North Platte have had the tele
phone rates raised without our consent
and without our actual knowledge.
Nearly every resident in this city is
paying $1.50 per month for a two party
line service, whereas we before paid
but $1.50 per month for a one party
lino. This rate was filed with tho State
Railway Commission and no notice was
given, and no notice is required to be
given to the people. Of course the
people can go before tho Railway Com
mission and make a fight as tho citizens
of Lexington and other towns are doing,
but this is expensive. The rates in
North Platto are now tho highest tele
phono rates charged in the state of Ne
braska, with the exception of Omaha
and Lincoln. What will be done with
tho rates after the telephone company
has got a good franchise as they desiro
and so earnestly seek with the aid of
our mayor, "no one knows.
By the way, who is paying for the
"flowers for ladies and cigars for
gentlemen" to bo given away tho day
before election? All tho revenue of
the Telephone Company comes from
the people, so that wo aie buying our
selves floweiband cigars.
