Neighbourhood news. Chips of news gathered from the woodpile of our neighbors in this and other counties. Anent Telephone consolidation. That the United states government fully intends to bring about a consolidation and do away with duplication in Many Public utilities is becoming More evident every Day. It is now almost certain that the Rock Island and c. M. St. Railways will be doing business As one Road before a great while. This will give better service far less Money and the change will be welcomed by the pub lie. The control of All Telegraph and Telephone lines has been turned Over to the postmaster general at Washington. That he Means to do business is evidenced by the fact that he has appointed a committee to investigate and report upon All such lines now in operation. A representative of this committee has been in Postville recently. This representative has declared thai he is opposed to any town like Post Ville having two offices. He declares that it Means poor service and wastes Money. Upon his recommendation twill Postville have to depend for its Telephone service in the future. We have every reason to believe that he will recommend to or. Burleson that there be a consolidation of the Telephone lines entering Postville. When asked what form of consolidation he suggested he said that there were several and that there should be no trouble in effecting such a Union and have everybody pleased. He suggested that the people on the various lines get together and talk things Over. He furnished the following suggestions As to How the consolidation might be brought about and satisfy the committee the Standard might buy out. The Bell and the Farmers lines and give them service through a Standard Central. The Bell might buy the Farmers and the Standard and they run the Central. The Farmer might buy both the Bell and Standard and they run the Central station. But his favorite idea seemed to be to have a company of Farmers and Postville business men organize a company to run a Central office and to handle the switching and toll Husi Ness for All the lines. He Felt sur that the people on the farm lines could get firs class service for $5.00 a year and that it would not take Over $3.00 a year to keep up their country lines. This would mean $8.00 a year for firs class Twenty four hour service including sunday. This representative of the government s interests will be glad to meet with the Farmers and business men any time they Are prepared to Call a meeting and talk business. Would it not be better for us to get together and arrange a Union among ourselves than to wait until we May have to take something we Don t like we suggest that the chairmen of the various lines entering Postville Call a meeting and arrange to consolidate. We suggest that they also ask that the agent of the government commit tee be . Christmas parcels for soldiers abroad i w. Eaton family to Cedar rapids. The Herald is sorry to report that or. And mrs.
