he continued. "Take any of the

the wonders of this unseen. force
When one realizes that he brings
one of his machines with which
it .lai possible, by properly attun
ing It, to send a ship ten miles
out to make It manoeuvre at

aboard, and uses that machine to
perform a number of Interesting

The Orpheus Male quartette,

which won the $3090 grand prize

and seventh days, brggest days of
Chautauqua: with a . real comedy
played by a nftew York company,
more good music and lectures win

Not least among these attractions
are Father D. J. Cron'n, lecturer
and Walter Jenkins of Jfortland,
community song leader. -
Considering the greatfy reduced
cost to patrons of Chautauqua
who purchase season , tickets, it
seems that everyone who expects
to attend as many as three num
bers on the program will see the
economy of the season ticket pian
because three eveping numbers
total more than the adult season
ticket it seen on the single ad
mission plan.
. t Reserved seats as well as season
tickets can be procured at the
'Ilartman Jewelry store all day
today. Season tickets are also on
sale at The Spa, Grey-Belle. Pat
ton's and-- the- Commercial Book
Store. i
Last vear. and some other years
some of the later Chautauqua tic
ket buyers have found all tho re
served seats sold, and they have
to' sit on back rows and have the
goody strained out of some of the
lectures and concerts by the. eager
auditors in front of them.
1 jThere will be no increase in
the number of reserved seats sold,
and there can't be enough of then
" to give every applicant a reserva-
tionJudging from the present aa

everybody will have an even break
for a chance at the best seats, tor
the reserved-seat ticket sale does

- mnrnlnr at the Ilartman Brothers
store, where the books will be

Tribute Paid Engineer
As a further point to show
that the Oregon public is victlm-
zed by the American Tejepnono
a Telparranh tombany. and tnai
the Pacific company is under the
thumb of the parent monopoly.
Major Babcock declared that "in
his opinion the -engineers of the
Pacific, company are unable tact-
ullv to recommend anytnmg, in'.
dneo not come through, what
known as "engineer'ng service'."
Incidentally he paid warm iriu
ute to the (MiKln-TS of th Pacf
'c system, declaring that those, he
had met were men of s'iperior at
tainments in the engineering sv
trm who conld not tolerate the

previous day relative V a test
made by her of .the jdervice in
Portland. -Major Babcock said that
the average of 30 calls a day
made by Mrs. Johnson fchould not
overload the line.
"Tne percentage of party line's
in Portland is so low' he said,
"that the number should not be an
appreciable load on any line. I
would cuasider 1000 cafls a fairer
test in two weeks than the 339
made by Mrs. Johnson.?
Asked his opinion da to what
constitutes satisfactory service.
'Major Babcock said tlfat. for the
suoecrioer tnis depends on nis
point of view and hlsi experience
with telephones. "Butllf I were a
manager,,r he added, " would not !
consider I was giving service, even
if there were no complaint, unless

of very modern device! that could
economically be usedf' In .this
obsolete system in Oregon should

i Asked to elucidate on the semi
automatic system of service.
which Is advocated by, Major Bab
jcock, he defined the three types
jof service. These, he explained,
i are the full manual, which re
! quires extreme operator labor;
'the full automatic, which requires
) extreme subscriber labor; and the
! semi-automatic, which requires a
j minimum of labor both by the
I operator and by the subscriber.
S itchboarUH Attacked.
This led Major Babcock to a
vitriolic attack on the general
switchboard system in Portland,
even to the assertion that he had
found Rei-ond-band obsolete switch
boards being installed which had
the appearance ot Laving been
discarded in some other large city
and sent to Portland lor use.
; The major took as his first ex
l ample the Main-Marshall ex
change, which he said is unecon
omical in that one exchange is
serving a territory that should be
served by two. The congestion of
linos in this exchange, he said,
is very pronounced.
"These switchboards are known
as the jack-per-station type," said
Major Babcock, "which, I ini ad
vised, is the standard fqr the Pa
cific, company, but which i con
eider a very extravagant specifi
cation. It places a great burden
upon the operator and results in
errors in giving service. It dis
courages the economical four
party service. I have never seen
bui one switchboard anywhere
that was more congested than the
Main-Marshall exchange in Port
land." Kast Exchange Bad. ft
Mr. Babcock then took up the
East exchange which he declared
presents a more deplorable con
dition than the Main-Marshall exchange.
"At the East exchange," he
said,, "the company has proceeded
with a system of emergency re
lief diametrically opposed to the
Main-Marshall exchange, but
equally bad, and- which is a dis
tortion of ordinary practices of
This reference was to the
raised multiple at the East ex
change which the majoj declared
"is Indefensible on any basis to
which my imagination may ex
tend." Overload Serious.
The overload, he said, is very
exaggerated and involves an ad
dition to costs and poor service.
It was here that Major Babcock
found the second-hand switch
boards which he opined had been
removed somewhere else and
thrust upon the Portland public
To illustrate the economical ser
vice which he said would result
from the semi-automatic system.

Babcock. four-party development
jrepresents only about 1 1 percent
of, the total number of patrons,

5 9, "percent and in EyeVett, Wash,

Patent Ownership Detriment
Attorney Tomllnson asked Ma
jor Babcock to comment on the
ownership of the great list of pat
ent rights held by the American
Telephone & Telegraph company,
"My opinion." said the witness
"in view of the obsolete equip
ment and other deficiencies in
Portland, is that it is nothing
more or less than, a detriment to
the public of Portland, because
the company owning them hai not
availed itself of the opportunity
to give the public the advantage
of improved service.
It is estimated that the hear
ing will require at least another
