I NEWTELEPH0NE TOLL RATES Reduction of Charges Now In Force iferial to tht IPS.VWO Κ V Wi. Tottenvllle, July, 3.—Reduction of I toll charges from Staten Island to the upper part of Manhattan and the Bronx, and to the outlying sections of Brooklyn went Into effect on TuesI day. These reductions are Included In an order recently made by the Public Service Commission with the consent of the New York Telephone Company. The telephone company has established three zones covering . the old city of New York as follows: Zone No. 1 comprises that part of Manhattan which lies, roughly I speaking, below 110th street. The telephone company's zone 2, comprises Upper Manhattan, Melrose and Tremont. The telephone company's zone 3 takes In that part of the Borough of the Bronx known as Kingsbridge, Wllliamsbrldge and Westchester, the Upper Bronx. The rate for five minutes talk from Staten Island to other sections now are as follows: Ten cents between respondent's zone 1 and zone 2 on the one hand and Tompkinsville, West New Brighton and New Dorp. Fifteen cents between respondent's zone 1 and zone 2 on the one hand and Tottenvllle. Fifteen cents between respondent's zone 3 and all Staten Island points. Fifteen cents between all points on Long Island within the city of New York and all Staten Island points. The pay station rates are the same as subscribers' toll rates where the subscribers' toll rate is ten cents or more. Where the subscribers' toll rate is five cents, the charge Is an additional five cents from pay stations. The question whether the pay station rate shall be five cents wherever the subscribers' toll rate is five cents is not determined by the commission in the present order. The reductions in rates between Staten Island and other points in the city of New York, Including Long Island, are made notwithstanding the question of Jurisdiction of the commission, which exists in view of the fact that the company's lines j from Staten Island to other points : in New York city run through the j Btate of New Jersey.
