6 April 1909 The Brisbane Courier -

THE TELEPHONE IMPOSITION

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir, In my opinion there is only one way to straighten out the question of excessive and prohibitive increase in the cost of the telephone, and that is to convene a public meeting to arrange to employ messengers instead of tele- phones.

Enormous amounts of money have been foolishly spent by the department and naturally they want us to foot the bill.

I am, sir. etc.

"ENGAGED PRO BONO PUBLICO."
