Grant Them Permission
The Tribune is at a loss to under
stand why the city council of McCook
should refuse theBartley Telephone Co
independentpermission to run a line in
to the county court house
Such a line would be a great accom
modation to the people of the eastern
end of the county in communicating
with the county officers on business of
the county Granting the permission
would be at no cost to the city The
city authorities had the same legal right
apd moral obligation they had when
they granted the Nebraska Telephone
Co a franchise
The Tribune considers the action
taken an error which should be rectifi
ed at an early date
The fact that this city is friendly to
the Nebraska Telephone Co and pays
a good round price for the excellent ser
vice received does not mean that the
people of McCook are opposed to so
reasonable and proper an action as the
granting of a permit to the Bartley Tele
phone Co to run a line into the court
The people and business interests of
McCook are not and cannot be in fair
ness and reason opposed
The Tribune is not in favor of high
board fences -but leaves a fair show
equal opportunity And the people of
McCook are with this proposition

Commercial Club For It
The adjourned business session of tho
McCook Commercial club last Friday
evening was one of the most interest
ing held since its organization
Tho club first disposed of a grist of
routine business allowing bills otc and
then settled down to the consideration
of the application of the Bartley Tele
phone Co an independent line for a
franchise from tho city of McCook to
run its line into the court house
The matter was thoroughly and warm
ly debated and The Tribune is more
than pleased to note that the ultimate
decision was a just and proper one that
is in favor of the city authorities grant
ing their request Local Manager Hall
of the Nebraska Telephone Co and a
few members opposed tho granting Con
gressman Norris and a majority of tho
members favored tho proposition A right
conclusion was reached
That this action of business men of
the city was subsequently turned down
by the city council Monday evening of
this week is certainly a surprise
