. . There is a more or less labored
attempt at defencc on thc part of
the local telephone company in
\ the rCCPlll issues of the News and
Journal. The latter paper says
. ' that its editor has investigated
the matter and that the local
company is right. Of course wc
realize our presumption in con-
nuing the controversy after the
editor of the Journal has passed
II an adverse udgcmcn j , but in as
much as the young man has been
mistaken in the past wc feel that
hc may be wrong in this instance.
In consideration of thc fact that
. Joseph 11. Miles is thc largest
individual stock holder in thc
telephone company , wc feel that
thc Journal , to say the least , can
- s. . . hardly be considered a disin-

The denial is made that the
local company has a monop01y.

: Morehead is an inferential admission -
I mission that it has. Mr. Morel -
I head , in speaking of the farmers
: companies coming into Falls City
I says , if these people want in let
I them come to mc.
Why to you ,1\11' 1\lorchead ?
\Vhcn and by what authority
did you come into control of the
streets ! of Fails City ? If these
people want thc use of thc streets
for a franchise why should they
not go to thc city ? 'I : lie reason
is that the franchise tax ordinance -
nancc puts it into your power to
say who shall conic in and who
shall not. The council has built a
wall about thc city and stand at
its gateway to demand tribute of
every company seeking admission.
If these companies will not acccdc
to your dcmands they must stay
' . I
Cu' .
By this ordinance the local
company is in absolute control of
thc telephone privileges of this
city and such control givcs to it
the monopoly of which we com-
p1ain. It will not do to say that
no interest is taken in this fight.
tl'he letters and personal visits
this office is receiving from farmers -
ers who trade in this city and
who feel that they are not being
fairly treated would soon convince
certain interested parties that
this question is of the greatest
I . .
moment to the business interest
of this community and concerns
the welfare of every business man
who depends on thc farmer for
his markct. The city council
should bc fair between all partics.
It should permit competition in
every branch of endeavor. It
should grant no greater benefits
to telephones to merchants ,
and if , tny favors arc to bc shown
they should bc given to that class
of our citizenship upon whom we
arc all so dependen

Bryan or Burkctt ? This ques-
tion must bc answered by every
voter in the state when hc comes

\V. 11. Morrow pursues the
quiet and unassuming campaign
which will land him in the office
of county attorncy. His ability
and integrity furnish thc essen-
tials so necessary in a legal posi-
tion. No citizen in the county
can afford to vote against Mr.
Morrow. The office is too impor- trust to inexperience and
' "
tl'hc county committee is i ! now
well organized for the ensuing
campaign. The poll will shortly
bc taken , thc committce appoint-

politicians will bc abroad 111 the

Grinstead , Smith and Hogrefc
compose thc strongest ticket that
has ever been nominated for Ilie t
legislature in this county. Each
one possesses some distincth'e
quality which will cnurc to the
benefit of their constituents when
used in a legislative position.
There is Jess reason to scratch
the ticket this year than ever before -
fore , and wh,11 to the general
popularity of the candidates , wc
add thc fact that each candidate
is a strong friend of Burkctt and
is instructcd to vote for him for
United States senator , there ought
not to be a moments liesitatioti on
the part of any republican as to
how he should cast his \'otc.
There has been considerable local
speculation as to whom the dcm-
ocrats will nominate for state '
senator. Better let it go by dc-
