A man was recently arrested and fined $25 for listening to a telephone message passing over a line in which he owned a phone and afterward telling what he heard. The theory was that messages or conversations over the wires are confidential and the fact that he owned a phone gave him no right to repeat anything he might have heard either by accident or otherwise.
We were informed that it was possible to prevail upon the townsite commission and other authorities to make the Townsite of Caddo some larger than the present limits, if taken through the proper channels. Now if there is anything Caddo needs more than anything else it is the room in which to grow. That our plat is not large enough is self evident.
