Council Votes Down Vaughn
Ordinance After Lively
AUTHOR LOSES HIS TEMPER
Dares Any Member to Oppose Meas
ure on Floor of Chamber Chal
lenge Promptly Accepted,
by Councilman Baker.
Councilman Vaughn encountered a
bitter antagonist in Councilman Baker
yesterday afternoon at the Council meet
ing when he virtually dared anyone to
defend the majority report of the judici
ary committee, which recommended that
the Vaughn anti-pass ordinance do not
jiass. The ordinance failed, but its de
feat was precided by one of the warmest
debates that has enlivened the Council
proceedings in many months. Council
man Baker declared that Vaughn was a
'grandstander" and impugned his mo
tives in championing certain measures.
Baker, Vaughn and Boothe are mem
bers of the judiciary committee, which
at a meeting Monday considered the
Vaughn anti-pass ordinance to prohibit
Couneilmen and other city officials from
accepting passes or other favors from
public service corporations. Baker and
tloothe adopted a majority report that
the ordinance do not pass and Vaughn
submitted a minority report.
When the ordinance came before the
Council yesterday Vaughn proceeded to
air his views and set forth the merits of
the measure for nearly half an hour. He
declared that he had heard that members
of the Council had received favors from
the telephone company and that he knew
that nearly all the Couneilmen carried
streetcar passes- Vaughn concluded by
saying: "I doubt if I shall hear a single
Councilman defend the majority report
of the committee. "Why? Because they
have nothing to defend.
Baker Accepts Challenge.
Baker snatched up the gauntlet almost
before it was thrown down, and was up
and talking In an instant. He drifted
Into personalities. Several times Mayor
l ane had to call him to order.
"Mr. Vaughn would not have made his
fiowery address bad not the newspaper
reporters been here." shouted Baker. "He
Is a grandstander. He made a long
winded address on a proposition that Is
rlnioly ridiculous. Who is going to be
Influenced by a streetcar ticket? If any
one is so small as that he should be
driven out of the city.
"I will say further. Mr. Vaughn," de
clared Baker angrily, "that this ordi
nance and your Fourth-street agitation
Is the result of something that the South
rrn Pacific refused you."
"Do you mean to say that the Southern
1'Hcino forgot to send me transporta
tion?" shouted Vaughn.
"The general Impression of the Council
and others is that It Is a fact," retorted
Kakor. raising his own voice to concert
Mayor Lane brought his gavel down
and the - uproar subsided. Mayor Lane
cautioned the Couneilmen to refrain from
personalities and the debate was re
sumed. Vaughn explained that when he went
into onice he received a pass from the
Southern Pacific, which he returned at
the time the Fourth-street ordinance was
considered by the Council several months
ago. He further explained that he had
received no pass from the Southern Pa
cific at the first of, the year, but added
that at the time he had Introduced the
ordinance to revoke the Fourth-street
railroad franchise he had a Harriman
Says Animus Exists.
Baker has said that Vaughn requested
pass for a friend from the Southern
Pacific and had been refused. After that.
Baker said, Vaughn introduced his ordi
nance. Baker has gone on record as favoring
the regulation of the traffic on Fourth
street, and he and Vaughn were pulling
together on the question until the anti
pass ordinance bobbed up. .
"The Vaughn ordinance Is a trifling
matter and doesn't amount to anything,"
said Boothe. who took a hand in the
frame after all the fireworks had been set
(? and there remained but a few bunches
of firecrackers. "Any person who can
be Influenced by streetcar tickets Is un
worthy to be a member of this honorable
body. The ordinance is unnecessary.
Both Baker and Boothe took pains to
announce that they had not received
tickets or other "courtesies" from the
Ktreet railway company. The vote on
the adoption of the majority report was:
Vcs Annand, Baker, Boldingr Boothe.
Bennett, Dunning, Gray. Menefee, Pres
ton, Sharkey, Wallace, Wills. No Kella

better positions. Eight days later they
were informed that the salaries of engi

gave written notice, in accordance with
the rules of the Civil Service Commission,
that they would quit work at noon April

THE TITLE GUARANTEE &
TRUST COMPANY was established
April J 8, 1887, under the name and
style of The Real Estate Title and
Trust Company, the name being
changed in 1890 to its present form.
Its executive officer. during all these
years has been its present President,
and the first clerk to enter its serv
ices, Mr. Fred Howard, is still the
dean of its clerical force. Its stock
holders have remained practically un
changed, although a few new stock
holders were added at the time of re
incorporation. Its first offices were
in the First National Bank Building,
at the corner of Washington and
First streets. Needing more space,
it soon removed to the Abington
Building on Third Street, near "Wash
ington street. Upon completion of
the Worcester Block its offices were
moved to that building and upon erec
tion of the Chamber of Commerce
building it was one of the first ten
ants on the ground floor. Upon the
Wells-Fargo & Company Bank being
consolidafed with the United States
National, The Title Guarantee and
Trust Company moved into the bank
ing room vacated by Wells-Fargo in
the Commercial Block on Washington
street, corner of Second, which cor
ner has been for many years, and
is more and more becoming a promi
nent banking center; and upon the
Canadian Bank of Commerce vacat
ing the adjoining room, The Title
Guarantee and Trust Company occu
pied these quarters also, removed the
partition wall, and fitted up one of
the largest and most convenient banking-rooms
on the Pacific Coast.
The first of'Sce of the Company
embraced one desk and two employes,
and was housed in a 12x12 room; in
1000 it occupied 2000 square feet ; in
1902, 4000 square feet; in 1905, upon
moving into its present quarters, its
floor space covered 6850 square feet.
At present, after enlarging, its floor
space is over 12,000 square feet, ac
commodating sixty-two desks, and
Many causes have contributed ' to
bring about this growth. The man
agement has been active and pro
gressive. Its depositors, whether
large or small, have been treated with
courtesy and consideration. The
work undertaken by the various de
partments has been careful and thor
It has been the policy of the Com
pany to meet the requirements of its

THE T WENT T YEARS OF
GROWTH as a financial institution,
in which The Title Guarantee and
Trust Company has served its friends
and patrons so faithfully arid well,
as a comprehensive and conservative
Trust Company, have passed-and left
us. Now, launching out in the new
decade with renewed determination,
with an even greater sense of our re
sponsibility, we offer our services to
the general public, promising them
courteous and liberal treatment, and
solicit the business of the community
for which the facilities ' of "THE

May Be Ousted From the State
On Account of Rate
Special to the Tribune:
COLUMBUS, March 21. Is discrimi

This is the question confronting those
officials who are Investigating the
methods Qf the gigantic Bell telephone
monopoly, as applied to its operations
That such investigation Is going on
at the present time Is apparent, and
that the big Bell monopoly Is trem
bling as to the result is also fully es
tablished by those who are in touch
with the situation.
That thefe la every reason for the
ouster of such company from operat
ing in the Buckeye state, because of its
practices and discriminations in rates
to those who are using Bell telephone
service, now seems to be the opinion
of those who most thoroughly investi
gated the question.
There is hardly a city or town in
.Ohio, in which the big Bell monopoly
Is now operating, that there are not a
large 'number of cases where it may
be proven guilty of rate discrimination.
That the investigation now going on
is bound to redound to the benefit of
the people goes without saying.
The expose of the methods of the
Bell monopoly will be far-reaching in
its effect and should that corporation
show the same disregard for the peo
ple when such expose comes, as it has
done in the past, it will not be surpris
ing if it is ousted from all right to
operate in the state of Ohio.

From Omaha Paper.
The Bell telephone trust, meaning
the great National parent organization,
has just experienced one of the most
remarkable setbacks known In the
financial history of recent years. It
has met ignomlnous failure in an at
tempt to float $40,000,000 of a new
$100,000,000 bond issue. Although the
company availed itself of the expert
services of Kidder, Peabody & Co., J. P.
Morgan & Co. and Kuhn, Loeb & Co.,
there was no float" in the paper. The
statement Is made that subscriptions
did not amount to enough to pay for
advertising the issue.
The plain truth seems to be that the
parent company has reached the limit
of -its ability to float waterlogged- se
curities. Those already issued aggre
gate $400,000,030. Against this vast
liability there stand as assets the paper
securities of a great number of subsi
diary companies, many of which are in
a bad finainclal way bonded to the
limit, upon plants which have ap
proached the end of their "life" and
are now suffering ah enormous depre
ciation In value. Some of the plants
in the newer fields of the West are in
good condition; but in older territory
the plants are rapidly becoming out
worn, and the necessity for continual
renewal has in many cases reduced or
wholly destroyed dividend-paying pow
er. In some Instances in the Middle
States bonds of subsidiary companies
which are carried by the parent con
cern as assets at par are unsalable
even at one-tenth of their face.
Knowledge of these conditions, on
the part of the investing public, in
duced the failure of the last attempt
to Increase the trust's liabilities.
The automatic telephone service is
very satisfactory. For promptness, re
liability, secrecy, clearness of transmis
sion, etc., it is much better than any
telephone system which we have had
the opportunity to use.

The service of the Automatic tele-
Fhone in this city is very satisfactory
ndeed. As you probably understand,
we rinjr up our party direct and when
we are through we disconnect our
selves. The 'act of secrecy Is a great ele
ment In business matters. We can hear
distinctly; in fact, the people in this
city are much pleased with the tele
phone and with the service. Many of
them would not go back to the Bell
even if it were given them free.

We. the undersigned, officials and
citizens of Vanwert Ohio, recommend
to you the Automatic telephone service.
It has been in operation In our city
three years and nas given universal
satisfaction. It Is much (better and

the manual service. We cordially urge
its adoption by any community tiat
wants the very best service.

"O PROMISE ME"
(Words and Music "by Terrific Rates Tel. Co.)
Some of the various promises made by the Terrific Rates Telephone Com
pany in the past thirty years.
April 14, 1877 The Terrific Rates Telephone Company takes great pleasure
in announcing to the dear public that it will install its new auto-duplex-compound-cathartioswitchboard
and spend upwards of $500,000 in this city. Best service as
TEN YEARS ELAPSE.
April 14, 1887-PUBLIC OPINION: The telephone service in this city has
been something awful for the past ten years.
April 15, 1887 The. Terrific Rates Telephone Company take extreme pleasure
in stating they are about to install the new mag-no-magnetic-raz - ur - rates - twin
service switchboard. This expenditure will be upward of one million dollars, and
the management assures Portland people better telephone service than they have
ever had in their whole lives. Three of our best girls got marriecMast week, and
we were obliged to shut down; also our manager was called to Frisco, as Class
had a pain, and while there was attacked with "brain storm."
" TEN YEARS ELAPSE.
April 14, 1897-PUBLIC OPINION: Exasperating -the abominable service
given by the Terrific Rates Telephone Company is a rank imposition on the pub
lic, and our City Fathers should advocate competition or insist upon giving the
people something for their money.
April 15, 1897 The Terrific Rates Telephone Company is reorganizing, and
have purchased the Kellogg, the Armour & Swift and the Smith & Wesson fac
tories in the East, and promise the patient public , up-to-date telephone service
hereafter. The recent slush in our service was caused by watering our stock. The
overflow or slop-over soaked our batteries, thus cross-circuiting our wires; poor
service was inevitable, scientifically speaking, but on honor we promise you most
excellent service hereafter.
TEN YEARS ELAPSE.
April 14, 1907-PUBLIC OPINION: Patience ceases to be a virtue. Of all
the rotten telephone service ever handed out to a patient people you certainly
can deliver the goods. Thank Heaven, we have the Home Telephone, up-to-date,
new automatic. It is instantaneous and secret and performs every duty the new
Independent Company has claimed for it.
TERRIFIC RATES SING THE LAST VERSE OF "O PROMISE ME."
April 15, 1907 The Terrific Rates Telephone Company will spend one million
and a half dollars for its phone system, put out five hundred men from work, will in
stall the new-mute-multiple-double-back-action-switchboard and place new instru
ments of torture with every subscriber in place of the old. With this new switch
board we can recite many instances wherein subscribers have been able to tell just
who was calling them up, and sometimes you can tell what people are actually talk
ing about. It will often save you many steps. Try our new-nerve-racking, cut-in-sky-'
'Oh Promise Me" phone service for 1907.
By the way! we are thinking about purchasing the Automatic manufactur
ing plant; also consolidating with various enterprises. We have an option on the
Standard Oil Company, the Trinidad Asphalt Bedsthe Legislature and the Earth
quake Belt. , , . .
October 16, 1907 PUBLIC OPINION: 'Wake-up" Terrific Rates, "your
pipe's out." "
LOUIS J. WILDE,
What Western Telephone Journal Says of Future
It is only a matter of time when
the whole North American Conti
nent will be gathered under the
banner of the Independents.
No movement in the world's
history has a brighter outlook
than the one in which j'ou are en
gaged. It has passed through the
stages of doubt and difficulty. It
has survived the attacks of the
monopoly and its creatures.
"The mighty wrongs and petty
The load roar of foaming cal
umny, The small whisper of the paltry
And the subtler venom of the rep
It only remains with - courage
and confidence to carry on the
work until every citizen through
out the land shall be supplied with
this means of conversing with his
fellow-men. I do not see why, at
the most conservative estimate, the
Independent development should
not reach 10 per cent .of the en
tire population within the next
few years. This will require an
investment of approximately $600,
000,000, and of this you may be
sure, every dollar of this money
will afford a far more remunera
tive investment than as if the
same amount was put into rail
roads, electric lighting or any oth
er public .utility.
Do not be pessimistic about the
future. As you provide the facili
ties, the people will reach out for
them. It is not many years since
wise men in the Dominion Parlia
ment predicted that the receipts of
the Canadian Pacific Railway
would not pay for the axle grease.
Today we find two mora transcon
tinental railways hurrying for
ward construction in a race to con
nect the Atlantic to the Pacific.
This is only one illustration of how
we may show timidity in estimat
ing the possibilities of the future.
