The members nf th rlty rnunrll Anil ths
rlMxns of Omaha will rnKnli some
Important moral rguestlons Involved In tha
acnn1 tolrphon proposition as thay be
come familiar with the facta. One of thse
questions Is:
la It rlnht to give any company tha
power to force the second telephone Into
about 2.S"0 business places In Omaha and
thus levy an additional expense of about
H2fi,ono a year upon the business men of
the city?
t have shown by the presentation of
facts pertaining to the experience of
other cities that wherever there has been
telephone competition in a city as large
as 'Omaha the Rell telephones have not
been dispensed with, but have Increased In
number; that the Bell rates have been
generally maintained, and that competition
has placed many thousands of dollars of
additional expense upon the business men.
who are required to have both 'phones.
But, It may be argued, the business men
will receive an additional service com
mensurate with the additional expense put
upon them, for they will be placed In
telephonlo connection with many residences
which are now without telephone service.
For the sake of argument we will grant
that the independent company. If It atarts
In business, will have aa many as 1,000 ex
clusive residence 'phones, meaning that It
will succeed In placing its 'phones In l.OflO
residences which are without the Bell
'phones, although this la scarcely possible
In view of the low residential rates of the
Bell company here,- and If the business
rate of the Independent company la to be
$54, as has been intimated. It would cost
the business man Just that sum per year
for these 1,000 additional residence connec
tions, or 6.4 cents per connection. The ex
orbitance of this charge may be appre
ciated by considering the fact that at
present the business man with an Individ
ual line 'phone in 'the Bell exchange paya
$84 for a service with 5.000 residence con
nections, or only 1.7 cent per connection.
The additional service to be gained In
Omaha from the establishment of a second
telephone system will cost the telephone
users a great deal more, per possible con
nection, than the present service of the
Bell company costs. This is Indicated
clearly by the foregoing Illustration, and,
further, it Is the established fact In every
city where there are two companies In tha
If the Independent company . comes In
with a residence rate of 130 per year, as
has been intimated, and 1,000 residences use
Its 'phone to the exclusion of the Bell
'phone the aggregate annual saving to
these 1,000 householders would be $4,000, be
cause 1,000 residence 'phones In the Bell
exchange, at $3 each, would cost Just $8,000
more than 1,000 residence 'phonea In the In
dependent exchange, at $30 each. Now, If
2,6(10 business men can be beguiled Into, put
ting in tne independent phone at $64 each,
they will be taking on an additional tele
phone expense aggregating $126,000 per
year. So, In order to save one class of
users $6,000 a year, the Independent tele
phone proposition means to assess $124,000
a year of additional expense against an
other class of users. It is Just suoh ex
perience as this that prompted Alderman
John F. Domhoff of East St. Louis, 111.,
In a paper presented to the League of
American Municipalities, to say:
"In voting a franchise to any public serv
ice corporation It is the duty of the city
government to protect the Interests of the
whole, and not merely a part, of the com
munity. A city government has no right
to Impose a burden upon one class of cltl-
rens In order to bestow a benefit upon an
other class."
Alderman Domhoff showed by figures
that telephone competition In East St.
Louis saved one class of users $4,809 per
year and cost another class $15,354 per year.
And every city of any Importance which
bas two telephone systems Is having the
same experience in this respect.
