Upon this point our neighor preserves a silence eloquent of its inability to ijEntroTert the fact that, when firing the opening gun of U^ campaign it urged* the *long-»ufferm^ citizens of Connellsville and Umontown in par- *\cular and Fayette county m geuer »1," to take steps beiore the Public Service Commission to compel the Tri-State Telephone company to allow liself to be ab'sorbed by us onl rnal Jsot having essayed the role of tele phone service reformer by the 'spui- los ·versenk.t * methods of our contemporary we hae neither attacked nor defended either the Tn-9tate nor the ·JBell companies being without occa- aioa to, do so althoujji we have had occasion to complain of the quality of service rendered by both "ttith its customary enterprise in gathering dews and its fairness m handling it The Courier published a news storj of tne very extensive damage sustain ed by the Tn^State company during the recent storm The !News made no effort to secure information of the conditions which m»de it impossible for tlxe Tri-St«e to restore its service aa quickly as did the Bell, company In the crippled Tn-State serv ice, which of necessity resulted, our contemporary saw an opportunity to ply ita little hammer upon a home enterprise jand at the same time gain a little cheap notoriety bv starting its so-called campaign. The Couriers disposition and rale of conduct never having "been, to use the distress of individuals--dBUch as sad bereavements in homes--or the misfortunes of corporations--such as partial or complete destruction of pla»t, as an occasion for advertise- ·Mot, it declined to 1 *nd its approval to the course pursued by the .ews and stall declines to do so; IB Its comment upon the question Tire Courier has never said, the 3ftme«*of the Tri-Statc company has been perfect, and verv rrankly admits that of the two the Bell is better but ire -would not nrge the utter extinc turn of the Tri-Stat on taat ground any axr« than we wt uld suggest the jailing of our brother editor and the dismantling of his plant because he admits The Conner- tn be a better paper than the News We would accord to the In-State company every op pcrrtunity to unpro-ve it-, service ju»t as gentroMlT as we would extend a /ike privilege to our contemporary The Courier has never denied thai a "standard aemee , as the INews camouflages telephone mononoplj would be cheaper and have some con- Tenle-mcee over two srvrces provided nr wnulable bi. telephone tbo "standard service The Kews nwstaAnitTiOKevcr ihat it the mjblic Service Cbmm.sBion obeyed 11$ £cfecst,_aad compelled the Tri-Statc eampcar to *ett ont to the Be If the Jmtea then prtvailmt;, even if fi\cd fcgr dmt-todr to which our contempor : Wry would- apply physical force instead of tending "moral support would Bot be as Ion as tO" 0 now charged by the Tri-State for that cla» of service used by tho largest "mnber of patrons. , "Tie Courier favors any and erery nprovement In the service of any -ttblic utility and the lowest po sibl he -lyes - of- Lincoln tWwerepaUenianJ tender, aad «,«, fte clamor wd,£oadiig .aJdMfiw.fcMteseofit.ejwrcJ, Mid hc*.«il»r p « ma nd fctidxxSitf, andabtvJned (yrepraalon of a. country tmitearorniJie luminous slopes afthe stars!
