company is going to have to
show why it should not be ousted
from the state of Oregon, a Port
land attorney having taken the
initiative in the matter. He ought
to succed. We never heard of any
one that was satisfied with the
way the telephone treats its cus
tomers. Its service could be no
worse. Even local business, with
its line is delayed beyond all rea
son or excuse, and long distance
is even worse. Turn in a call
and see how long it takes you to
get any sort of action. The best
time recorded is 10 minutes and
from that to a half a day. It
takes as long to get a response
from calls between Gresham and
Portland as it should
quest and see how it is treated.
The operator sits around, talks
society matters, the latest styles,
styles in hair dressing, care of
the finger nails, and leisurely
puts in a call, when it is not too
much bother. After you have
waited long enough to lose the
