trial. ' ' ;
Through his attorneys. Collier & Col

statement is made that the points which
will be relied , on In argument for a
new trial are that the court admitted
evidence, over objections, pertaining to
other ' crimes in no manner connected
with the indictment, and evidence touch
ing the financial ability of the defendant
from which inferences were drawn that
Mattlo must have stolen, money from
Joe Lemma other than . the money
charged in the indictment, and civil mat
ters were permitted to be introduced by
which the jury was prejudiced.

Supplying Telephone Service
Occasionally subscribers move and ask us for a continuance of tele
phone service at their new location. They may be told that compliance
with their desires is immediately impossible owing to lack of "telephone
facilities" in a particular locality. "Why," one will say, "the poles and,
wires are on the street arid -the house is already wired."
We wish that the problem were as simple as it sounds. There may
be poles and wires, but every wire may be in use in giving service to
others.- There may be a cable, but every circuit in it may be assigned to
telephones already installed. There may be a" telephone in the vacant
house or apartment to which you move, but no spare, wires and circuits
from your location to the central office.. There may even be sections of
switchboard in the central office but not available for operation on ac
count of the lack of necessary switchboard apparatus such as ringing keys,
relays, etc. ' .. -
The reason for the shortage of telephone equipment is simple. Dur
ing the war period we were unable to maintain our reserve or stock plant
as the same materials we use were required and taken for government
purposes and for industries properly favored- by the government. .Since
the war, with the unexpectedly prolonged problems of reconstruction,
production, and delivery of materials needed to meet even current demands
have been, delayed. Every business concern is having similar experiences.
The manufacturers of telephone equipment have been bending every ef
fort to fill our orders, but they, in turn, are meeting the same difficulties
yin securing rubber, paper, silk, glassy porcelain, tin, thread, shellac, metal
parts and other articles not generally, associated in the public mind with
telephone service. u , - . . ' ;
At the same time with this abnoormal situation with reference to ma
terials there exists an unprecedented - demand for telephone service and
.even under.these circumstances our, record is one of fulfillment of demands
In the first nine months of 1920 we ' made a total net gain of over
7300 telephones in the State of Oregon. A fact worthy of consideration
in our operations is the large number of telephones handled in proportion
to net increase. In those nine months we disconnected, connected and
moved 4 l,i 40 instruments to? secure the net gain above mentioned, i f
We desire to give service as much as - a patron wishes ta receive it.
We desire to promptly comply with the suggestions of public authorities r
; who have taken a proper interest in the situation.-We are facing abnor
mal conditions, but we are trying to overcome our difficulties. , .
