Despite the reappearance of John T. Cath
ers at the city hall with a verbal protest
against the erection of a $125 Ak-Sar-Ben
reviewing stand In front of the city hall at
the city's expense, the stand Is being built
by orders of Mayor Moores. This is Cath
ers" first trip to the city hall since he was
made to pay up a big personal tax bill not
long ago, by having his law books and fur
niture attached by the city treasurer.
"No less than half a dozen prominent
business men called me up on the telephone
or saw me Thursday and told me to draw
on them for the cost of the stand If Cathers
Interfered with the city's paying for It,"
said Mayor Moores. "I had decided to have
it built if I had to pay for it myself. The
erection of a stand is part of the duty we
owe to our visitors. One of the men who
wanted to pay for the structure was G. W.
Wattles, vice president of the Commercial

AS TO TELEPHONE TOLL LINES
Seoond 'Fiona SriUm Unnecessary to Ac
commodate Out-of-Town Trade.
EXISTING FACILITIES COVER ALL POINTS
No Business Is Being Diverted from
Omaha for Lack of Inde
pendent Toll Line Con
nections, In the campaign of misrepresentation
which is being conducted by the Independ
ent telephone promoters many specious ap
peals are being made for public support,
but the most superficial plea advanced by
Messrs. Hunt, Fairfield and Pollock Is that
by accepting the second telephone system
Omaha will open its commercial gates to
thousands of Nebraska business men whose
telephonic orders would otherwise go to St.
Joseph. Kansas City, Lincoln, Sioux City
and Des Moines. The statement that
Omaha is losing trade from the surround
ing country by not having connection with
the Independent telephone lines is not only
silly, but it is contemptible, because It Is
published by people who know, or ought
to know, there Is not an lota of truth in It.
Mr. Hunt says "Omaha wants the right to
connect with every independent 'phone from
the Atlantic to the Pacific," inferring that
such a right would come from the estab
lishment of a second telephone exchange
here, when he knows perfectly well that
connection with Independent telephones,
even from the Mississippi to the Platte, Is
Impossible. Mr. Pollock draws a pessimistic
picture for Omaha's jobbers when he writes
about there being 100,000 Independent
'phones In Nebraska which are not con
nected with Omaha, while the fact is that
there are not more than 60,000 independent
telephones in the state, and about one-half
of these are connected with the toll lines
of the Nebraska Telephone company reach
ing Omaha, and the other half are in towns
which can be reached better by the Ne
braska company's lines than they can by
the Independent lines. Mr. Fairfield emits
the same wail, although by taking in west
ern Iowa he increases Mr. Pollock's figures
from 100,000 to 126,000.
All this misrepresentation, of course, is
for the purpose of enticing the business
men of Omaha to the support of the move
ment for a city franchise, which can be
turned into thousands of dollars for the
promoters of the Independent telephone
scheme, and for that reason, if not for any
other, the facts concerning telephonic toll
lines In this state should be given pub
licity. Nearly all of the independent toll lines
In Nebraska were built by local companies
and were Intended, at the time of their
construction, for merely local or county
business, and not for long-distance work.
For that reason they were constructed
with No. 12 iron wire, which lacks the con
ductive quality to carry a message any
considerable distance. Some of these county
systems have been connected up with each
other, and others have been connected up
with the Nebraska Telephone company's
copper metallic toll lines. The inter
county system created by the connection
of the Independent county systems are
scattered throughout the eastern half of
the state, and many cf them are Isolated, so
that connection with Omaha, even if an
independent exchange were established
here, is impossible. The fact Is that the
independent toll lines of Nebraska are scat
tered and separated, and hundreds of con
necting links and the substitution of cop
per for Iron lines are necessary to make
them into anything like a connected and
serviceable state system.
In the few Instances where Independent
county system have been connected for any
considerable distance It Is Impossible to
secure satisfactory service, for the reason
that the Iron circuits lack conductivity. If
any one doubts this, let him go to the in
dependent toll station In South Omaha and
try to talk to Tork. The writer, on Mon
day, August 25, with weather conditions
perfect, found It Impossible to get even
a connection with York over the Independ
ent line from South Omaha. The Inde
pendents have some copper toll lines, but
the equipment is bad In other respects, for
it Is Impossible to get good service over
these metallic circuits, as a test by the
writer last Monday demonstrated. I had
to ring twice before I could get a response
from Plattsmouth central, and was then
told by the operator to "shake up tho
phone" so that she might hear me. After
a wait of fourteen mlautes I secured a
connection with the Lincoln hotel at
Lincoln, but had to raise my voice to the
highest pitch to make myself heard. The
clerk at the Lincoln hotel said my voice
sounded "like It was 400 miles away."
Afterward I called for Falrbury, which Is
said by the independent people to be 00
one of their very best long-distance cir
cuits, but I could not make myself heard
by the operator there, nor could I hoar
her. The central girl at Plattsmouth avked
ms If I could hear the Fairbury operator,
and I replied in the negative whereupon
the Plattsmouth girl remarked: "Neither
Any one may go to the Independent toll
station In South Omaha, and, if he has
the patience, demonstrate to his own sat
isfaction that he cannot get good service
over the independent toll lines to more than
half a dosen towns in Nebraska. And to
these half dosen towns he can not get as
good service over the independent as he
can over the Bell lines. Thure Is not a
business man anywhere In Nebraska, who
cannot reach Omaha over the jU toll lines
