WOODS REJECTS BELL OFFER
Pmsidnt cf Independent 'Phone Companies
Baji He Cannot Accept It
TELLS WHY TO THE COMMERCIAL CLUB
Solatia o( 'roMrm Brlwi RlraU
a OsTered by Nebraska Cow
paar !t Acceptable
ta tee Otbars.
F. H. Woods of IJnroln, president of
tlio Nebraska Independent Telephone as
sociation, him addressed to the Omaha
Commercial club & reply to the proposition
of the Nebraska Telephone company rela
tive to furnishing Independent companies
with toll line connection with Omaha.
The letter endeavors to show why the
proposition cannot be accepted byithe In
dependents and pleads for the establish
ment of an Independent system In Omaha.
Mr. Woods first compares the Nebraxk.1.
Telephone company and the system of
independents, as follows: ;
Tha ' Nebraska Independent Telephone
association I" a voluntary association of
telephone companies, which operate 171
exchsnges In Nebraska. These companies
are owned by about 6.0Of citizens of the
state and represent an actual Investment
nf mom than toi.OfW. They are operat
ing; 43.704 telephonea entirely disconnected
from the Hell company's system. In the
same territory, including Omaha, the Ne
braska Telephone company operate only
thirty-seven switchboards and l:t.2Sl tele
phones, and lins only 3.M Independent tele
phones fcalled Bell sublicences) connected
with their system. Most of the Independent
companies now enjoy (rood toll lines con
nections with all trade centers excepting
Omaha, and by the end of the year they
will all be provided with Rood copper me
tallic toll line connections and will form a
compact system with not less ,thn fAOOrt
telephones in operation, rnere are more
than Mo.OiVI Independent telephones In Ne
braska and the states continuous to It
which are shut out from communication
with Omaha, and they will remain In this
condition as Ion as the Bell company Is
fwrmltted to retain a monopoly of your
ocal telephone business.
. Why They Da Sot Accept.
The letter says the Bell company's pro
posals cannot be accepted. In the first place
because while It offers "to pay a commis
sion on originating business to cover the
cost of operations," It ofTers no compensa
' thin for receiving and transmitting the
business terminating- In local exchanges.
It tays the Independents cannot think of
accepting the. Bell's second proposition, ap
plying to towns where there are competing
exchanges, which proposes to buy the In
dependent plant, sell out to the Independent
or merge, the two In a new company, "thus
restoring to a monopoly the control of the
local telephone business." Mr. Woods adds:
"It would be treachery for any independ
ent company practically to become a part
of the Bell system by entering :lnto a sub
license contract with the Bell people, which
is one of the conditions of acceptance of
the proposition. Acceptance of the Bell's
proposition would require Independents to
break contracts under which we have built
Joint lines with other independents und by
which wo have agreed to remain connected
Denies m Statement.
"Tho statement of the Nebraska com
pany," said Mr. Wood, "that' one of tha
rules of the Nobraslta Independent Tele
phone association prohibits its' members
from making connections with the Bell
monopoly, Is absolutely false."
Mr. Woods sums up the advantages to be
derived from a second telephone company
In Omaha as follows:
First. Better service, Only apparatus
of the latest type would be used and the
instruments would be the most modern
and perfect In use.
Second. Extended service. Tha area of
free service Is Kciicrally extended over the
entire county in which the system is lo
Third. Lower rate. The independent
company operating in Kansas City, morn
than 14,000 telephones, furnishes full copper
metallic Individual long-distanc telephones
for $.'4 per year, and the same conditions
prevail in other towns Where competition
Fourth. Wher competition exists, toll
line connections can be had with all sur
rounding systems and exchange.
In the trade territory tributary to Oniahd
there are 100.000 telepnonea, a good part
of which are located at points where their
users havo no accexs to Bell telephones,
over which no communication can be had
NEW WAY TO LIST PROPERTY
Revision of Bylaws on This Point
Ordered by Heal Estate
Important iactlon was taken at the meet'
lug of the Real Estate exchange Wednes
day, when a committee was appointed to
revise that 'section of the bylaws which con
cerns the listing of property fu sale. The
Intention Is to make a ruling that no mem
ber of the exchange shall place a piece of
property on his lists unless he Is given ex
clusive sale of it. ,
, The question ha Come up. time and again
at tha meetings of tho exchange. Wcdnes
day Secretary Tukey brought It up again,
calling the attention of the exchange to an
artlole in a Chicago paper on tha demorali
sation of the real estate business by a sys
tem which allows owner to place their
property with any number .of agents for
ale. This system exists both in Chicago
and Omaha. The objections urged against
it were .that dealers will not advertise prop-
