A delegation of ctutens of the
South 8ide met the city commis
sioners and urged that proposed re
moval of the 6 -cent telephone toll
between Omaha and their community
be set aside If such removal would
result In higher rates In 'the south
territory of Greater Omaha. '
The commissioners set the matter
over sixty days, pending; a complete
Investigation of the proposition.
The gist of the contention of the South
BMers waa that tha telephone patrons
of their sone enjoy a lower primary rate
than Is charged In Omaha property, by
reason of smaller area, and they contend
that if the toll la removed their rates will
J. J. Preen, one of the delegation, re

Telephone company, announced that the
txroks of his company are open fr In

are based on the principle of giving the
patron something suitable to his needs.
Joseph Koutsky of the South Bide
stated that any disturbance of the pres
ent system of rates would work a hard
ship upon many small telephone users of
the south telephone sons.
The agitation for the removal of the
toll charges was started by Improvement
clubs of Omaha. The council was told
that the annual revenue for Omaha

n.lssloners at a meeting of the com
mittee of the whole put a quietus

Butler and Mayor Dahlman were out

of butter free? I'll tell you what the
trouble Is there is friction between the
grocers themselves," declared Commis
The mayor said he believed these retail
merchants should dispose of tha .Sunday

More Work for Merml Sqaad.
Commissioner Puller suggested that If
the ordinance should be passed there
would he work for a moral squad, watch
ing tha bark doors of grocery and meat
stores on Sundays.
Peoretary Cameron stated that 1,000 em
ployes of grocery and meat stores want
to reat one day a week. He declared
that moat of the grocers and meat men
