The Independent Telephone Com
pany has requested the mayor and
council for a franchise. There is no
reaaon why it should not be granted
and many very strong reasons why fur
the good of the people that it should.
In the Krst place, the company plans
to establish a long distance and local
exchange. The company merely akB
the right to do business here and agrees
to pay the five hundred dollar franch
a year witnout asamg lor anjtning ex
cept.the privilege to provide the public
with a phone at lower rates than ever
before. The Nebraska Telephone Com
pany has charged a high rate and pro
video an indifferent service. The en
try of tnis new company lowers the
rates and will inevitably increase the
efficiency of the service. The two sys
tems together will cost the subscriber
less than the single sj6tem snd will
double or treble the value to each sub
scriber by multiplying by two or three
the number of subscribers.
The rates charged at present by the
Nebraska company in this city are S3
per month or $2 per month on party
circuit in private residences and SI per
month in places of business within a
certain radius of the central office, the
charge thereafter increasing with the
radius. This company in its charter
fixes its maximum rate at 31.50 in resi
dences and $2 50 in places of business
per month witnout reference to the
radius. In the city of Plattsmouth the
last advertisement by the Bell Tele
phone company of rates is as follower
Residence 'phones, per month, 50 cents;
business 'phones, per month, SI 25.

PlattEmouth ard Lincoln. The fewer
the number of subscribers on each lino
the larger the cost, but competition has
given the pople of Plattsmouth resi
dence telephone connection at fifty
cents a month.
At the present time there are about
800 telephones in operation in the city
of Lincoln. The rates are too exorbi
tant for more common use. By the
proposed reduction in prices the Inde
pendent company will have a list largely
in excess of the present one, so that the
people will receive two benefits, one a
reduction of prices and the other an in
crease of phones. Business men, even if
they have two phones, can talk to 2,500
persons for less than they now talk to
about 800. All the towns in the coun
ties east, south east and south of Lin
coln are reached upon this line, com
prising, among others, Plattsmouth,
Louisville, Dunbar, Weeping Water,
Nebraska City, Auburn, Elmwood,
Syracuse and every other town in Ne
maha county; Falls City and every
other town in Richardson county; Paw
nee City and every other town in Paw
nee county; Fairbury and all towns in
eastern Kansas, western Missouri and
southwestern Iowa, south to St. Joseph.
AnJ of course the company will go on
building until it occupies all profitable
territory. In all this talk of trusts
there is real feeling. The council has
an opportunity on Monday night to
prove that everybody doing a legiti
mate business can have the opportunity
of establishing a branch in Lincoln.
Many of the patrons of this company
who are retail dealers in Nebraska towns
are urging immediate entrance into Lin
coln for the purpose of reaching its
wholesalo district, and in this the busi
ness men will have a direct interest.
The system proposed for Lincoln is a
central energy, full metallic circuit and
long distance instruments, which is
much more rapid and efficient than Vie
present system now used in Lincoln.
