Agreed to Support the
The charge Is now publicly made by S.
A. Searle, managing the campaign for Cap
tain H. K. Palmer, one of the republican
candidates for mayor, that John P. Breen,
another candidate for the same office, Is
a backslider, having at the outset of the
campaign committed himself for Captain
Palmer, as the captain was the first in the
field, filing by petition. According to Mr.
Searle, this petition was drawn by Mr.
Breen personally, and Captain rainier had
every reason to expect Mr. Breen to con
tinue to support him, instead of running
against him himself and trying to bring
pressure on Captain Palmer to get out of
the way by withdrawing at this laic day.
Tlila charge was made by Mr. Searle In
a speech In behalf of Captain Palmer at
Washington hall. The meeting was held
under the auspices of the Square Deal
Republican club, which waa also addressed
by various candidates.

President Theodore N. Vail of the Amer

report shows the total number of stations
how to be 4.364.fi as against 3.8t9.O0 at the
close nf last year's business. Of the total
1.103.144 exchange and toll stations were
cojinected with the Bell system by toll of
long distance lines. These were operated,
however, by some T.ono local, co-operative
and rural independent associations or com
panies with sub-license or connection con
tracts. Mr. Vail shows that the entire system
had a total milage for toll and exchange
service of 9,Mn,718. which represents a gain
of more than l.ono.ooo miles during the

the gigantic, figure of 1378. 47. SOO. ln the
year covered by this report there was ex
pended out of the revenue to maintenance
and construction the sum of .T9, 73. Ton.
The report shows that the steady flow of
money Into the channels of Improvement

standard of efficiency of the nlnni in.i
making more substantial Its permanent'
character. This la attributed largely to the
Increased proportion of copper wire and

comprises the total value of the plants

The relations of the American Telephone
and Telegraph company to the associated
companies are explained in considerable
detail In the report. It was primarily n
holding company, though 1t owns and oper

the systems of the sssoclated companies,

associated companies," In addition to being

any other one within the carrying power of
the voice over the wires. New Ideas, Inven
tions and methods are made universally
available after being examined and per
fected. Not Rnoogh Distinction.
The report ssys: "There has not been
sufficient distinction between the Indepen
dents' and the 'opposition' in the minds of
the public. We have no quarrel witli either.
With many of the Independents we are
working 1n complete harmony, and for all
practical purposes our system Is a part of
theirs snd their system Is a part rf ours."
Cm the other hand. President Vail says
that there is a decided tendency on the
pgrt of the public to fevor consolidation.
I'nder intelligent cmtrol and a broad
policy, the Bell system has developed until
It haa assimilated Itself into and ln fart
become the nervous system of the business
and social organliatlon of the country.
There are now 70.000 shareholders In the
system, m-hlch has shown an Inrresse from
year to year, no matter what have been the
prevailing business conditions.
