The American Telephone and Telegraph Company of South Carolina is the owner of several lines of telephone extending across the State of South Carolina, said lines forming extensions of lines in other States owned by other companies, with which its said lines are connected at the boundary line of the State of South Carolina. Its said lines are also so constructed that connection may be made at points in the State of South Carolina with the local lines of companies operating in said State, and furnishing service between points therein. By such connection, the subscribers and patrons of such local companies are enabled to communicate within the State over the lines of such local companies in combination with the lines of this company, and with points in neighboring States, and are placed in general telephonic connection with the system of long distance telephone lines which extends over the greater part of the United States and the Dominion of Canada. This company operates no exchanges in the State of South Carolina, nor does it furnish service or quote rates for service between points in the State of South Carolina. The telephone traffic carried on, in part, over the lines of this company within the State of South Carolina is handled solely through the exchange of other companies, and under the rules, regulations and rates established by such companies, which are, therefore, deemed to be transacting all such business.
