Sandusky Star Journal, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio Guaranteed Circulation 5229 LAST EDITfc THE SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FOUR YEAR SANDUSKY OHIO SATURDAY. JA17UABY 211911 ALLEGE DEFECT IN_BILL Thoie Merger Measure to Permit "Watering" THIS MEANS A FIGHT fesalt May Provisloi ii Utilities Bill Keitriotiig Stiek huts of All Public StfTlce Corporations. STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Dispatch Building. COLUMBUS, O., Jan. bill to authorize the merger of telephone companies wtiich is to be introduced in the house and senate simultaneously next week, will not contain a provision to prevent the watering of telephone stock, and for this reason it will be hard fought. The telephone people say it would be unfair to make a provision to pre- vent watering of their stock while permitting it in every other kind ol public service corporation. The leg islature is likely to take them at their word and enact a utilities bill will put all public service corpora tions. telephones included, under such a provision. The Morgan Plans. ST. Mo., Jan. York financiers identified the plan to merge independent telephone companies, under the auspices of J I' Morgan Co., admitted that the negotiations are progressing. The ob ject is to form a trunk line to compete with the American Telephone Tele graph Co., and to stretch from the At- lantic seacoast to Denver, St. Louis telephone interests were represented at the conferences in New York city this week and last and foui of the leading financial houses of St Louis were participating in the trans- action. The St. Louis interests, which are factors in companies at St. Louis and in Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Kan- sas, Indiana, Michigan and Pennsyl- vania, will be represented at the con- ference with Henry p. Davison, Mor- gan's partner in New York city next Wednesday. Although the well-founded report cannot be confirmed, it is said that Morgan will establish an alliance be- tween the new long distance trunk line and the Postal Telegraph Co. This is believed in fact to be a logical result, of the deal, and it will strengthen the position of the Postal in regard to the Wesern Union which is dominated by the American Tele- phone and Telegraph, the corporation in supremacy over the Bell system The factors leading up to the pres- ent enterprise of J. r. Morgan and Co., bear a relation to the affairs of the recently projected Continental Telephone and Telegrah Co the pur- chase of the chief long distance lines of Ohio and Indiana by J P Morgan Co., the litigation instituted n Ohio against the Hell svstem bv the independent operators and the inves- tigations conducted by the attorney general of Missouri, Indiana and Ohio to prevent the monopolization of the telephone and telegraph facilities.

Clash WUb-ffltchcock Said Today to be Reason For Action WASHINGTON, Jan. Chas. D. Norton, secretary to the president, is to retire soon, is now accepted as a fact. One reason given today Is that he and Postmaster General Hitchcock havp been in continuous conflict. The retirement of Norton was disclosed in connection with the proposal to in- crease the salary of the position from a jear to a year. It was stated in the sub-commit- tee of the senate committee oa nuance that while Mr. Norton strongly urged the increase in connection with thq reorganization of the executive staff at the white house, he had ed'that lie himself be" the beneficiary of the increase. It is reported that Martin Egan the editor of th- Manila Times, who is' now in this city, is to succeed Mr. ton. llr. Egan was in the Philippines when the president was governor of the islands. Gus J. Karger, Ohio newspaperman and Washington correspondent of long experience, may succeed Norton it was reported today. Karger has long been in favor at the White House and is a representative of Charles P. Taft's Cincinnati newspaper. OPPOSEfNEW CONSTITUTION ALBUQUERQUE. N. M., Jan. 21 New Mexico Is today voting on the proposed constitution and the result of the ballot will determine whathat- the territory srjll be admitted as u state this year or remain as it is un- til 1912. There has been considerable opposition to the adoption of the con- stitution because it contains very few progressive ideas. The fight aeamst it has been based on the omission of the initiative, the recall and the pop- ular election of senators. Congress will piohably approve the constitution if it icccives a decisive majority of the votes today.

His Last Interview. His last interview on public ques- tions was given bv the late Paul Mor- ton to the United Press shortly before his sudden death. Jt was in answer to a statement made to the United Press by Governor Hiram Johnson, of California, to the effect that individ- ual rights were to be given preced- ence over corporate rights in that state. Mr. Morton was asked whether it was possible for both individual and corporate rights to be properly protected without injury to each other.
