As this fraper uridestands It the boost applies to all Iowa holdings of the Northwest Hell Telephone Company except those exchanges that have fnrm lines extemf- ing Into other states, and that consequently come tinder the Federal Comunlcntions Commission headed by Leon Henderson. It will be understood that who decided to push a big, fat bull over ft bunk Into n mudhole? thinking how absurd the bull would look the Irishman had a benny laugh before fie tried It.

Many towns In this section of the stale have already protested the raise. Many papers have spoken against it. Over at Storm Lake the city council has asked an injunction against the raise, and Judge Fred M Hudson has get a date of hearing when tho representatives of the telephone company can show why the rntf- raise should not he denied. City Attorney LeRoy A. Rador of Storm Lake alleged In his petition to the court that the North- West Dell Is a subsidiary of tho American Telephone ft Telegraph Company whose earnings aro more than sufficient to cover the dividend per share of J9 Pen year in spite of a raise of nearly $5 per Share over 1»40. Rader also charged that the earnings of the company for the quarter ending Feb. 28 wore equal to $2,60 per slmre-or more than $10 per year on th s basis. Storm Lake's city council unanimously rejected a financial report filed there 1,y the company's representative IIP "too incomplete, and indefinite'^ to determine the need of a fifteen per cent boost irt rates. Algcina linn also taken acllon on the matter and the city council passed a resolution drawn by their city attorney protesting the raise In price. Copies of the resolution were mailed to the Federal Communications Commission, to C. T. young, district manager of the Northwestern Hell Company at DCS Moines, and to Governor Wilson. In the mean time many organizations and officials of the state aro Interesting themselves In the matter. Humboldt has taken no official action but probably will. Local officials here are hoping that there can be a state movement of town and city councils to throw their weight against the raise. Senator Herring has stated his Intention to In* produce legislation into the national senate that will hrir... the.matter under the power of the Federal ^ift|tUm t Commission, ^ ^18^:^6"stirred up a hornet's nest and'' „„ , r esult in drastic action state or national The .opponents of the move are hoping that the price boost can In some manner be brought under the power of the Federal Communications Commission f It is the belief of many that the act is a move on the part of the telephone people to arouse public Indignation to the extent that a communications commission will be created In this state by the coming session of the state legislature. Iowa is one of the six states in the Union that has no communications commission. With the establishment of such a commission the companies effected could deal directly with the commission and would not be forced • toi light the various communities over rate raises This mighH be taken as a favor for the people and " again the companies might be able to handle the ' commission easier than it can the people It will be rememhered that Minnesota has such a commission, and granted the fifteen per cent raise. It Is a complicated matter and not easily understood. Protesting the rates is only a visible sign or the trouble underneath. ute Cleveland of Badger aro serv Inir in tho fmned forces of (lie United States. Tho three are Pvt.

The January figure showed a 53 per cent Increase over the $S1,S3 5 .000 recorded in the corresponding month .-, yenr ago. II started Iowa on the way to „ f.-.rm income of more Ihnn $1.0no.OOO',noO r or the present year Ihia Jump in receipts in due to increased production as wol las to higher prices for many farm products. If the Income for the other eleven months of l!M2 were to equal that of January the slate would have an Income for the year of nearly $1.500,000.000. This is hardly to be expected, however, as December and January Incomes almost always are considerably higher than other months. The prospects are .however, that the year's total may go well over the billion dollar figure. • In spite of this there,,seems Itttle likelihood that this prosperity will bring a period of wild speculation and a trail of financial ruin such as followed the last previous run of unusual Income.
