PROGRESS OF THE TELEPHONE.
An important step has lately been
made in Belgium, says Consul Grat-
jflun in his latest report to the Foreign
IJjuco on tno commerce oj Antwerp,
(towards tho application of the tclc-
fepjionic process to long distances.
feTiic telephone has been hitherto cm-
oyetl in Brussels, in Antwerp, and
in some of the other Belgian towns ;
ntul at Antwerp a considerable use
lias already been made of this valua
ble mode of intercommunication
one of tin? greatest merits of which
consists in its simplicity almost all
tho principal public offices, and a
large number of mercantile firms and
private establishments being in tele
phonic communication with each
-other through the central olllce of
the Bell Telephone Company. Tho
result of the measures now about to
bo taken will be that very shortly all
the principal towns in Belgium will
be placed in communication with
each other ; an advantage the bene
fit of which to business men and the
public generally cannot easily bo
over-estimated. A temporary cxp
r'nncnl, by arrangements extending
over a period of five days, was made
in August between Antwerp and
Brussels, the result of which is des
cribed as having been highly satis
factory. The subscribers were able
to communicate with one another
with perfect ease, and a voice of
average strength could bo distinctly
heard at each extremity without any
unusual effort being required on the
part of the bpcakcr. The greatest
triumphs in connection with electri
cal science appear to have been de
veloped in America, it having been
reported that a verbal message has
been lately conveyed along a wire
from New York to Chicago, u dis
tance of 1000 miles, and distinctly
heard at the further end' But com
munications have also been ex
changed between Brussels, Antwerp,
and London, by wire and cable, and
although tbe distances are less great,
none the less valuable will A)c the
benefits conferred on the relatively
small but energetic and industrious
population of Belgium by the new
facilities about fa be introduced;
and it is also saAil that arrangements
will be speficlily entered into with
Holland.-oy means of which a close
system of telephonic intercomnmni
catvon will be established between
Afhc two countries. As regards the
telephone in itself, its use is being
gradually promoted bj' improvements
introduced in its mechanism, a great
difficulty having hitherto consisted
in tbe liability of the working being
disturbed by neighbouring currents
connected with telegraphic lines.
"A method of suppressing these in
ductive effects," says an English
contemporary, "without employing
double wires, has been devised by
Van Ryssclberghe." The system
adopted in Belgium is that intro
duced by M. Van RysselbcrKhc, Di
rector of the Meteorological Depart
ment of the Brussels Observatory,
and a well-known scientific man, one
of whose principal achievements con
sists in the improvements lie has
effected in the simultaneous trans
mission of a telegraphic despatch
and a telephonic message by one and
the same wire. The saving of ex
pense and remarkable facilities cre
ated by the various ameliorations
introduced of late in the construction
and working of the telephone come
to the aid of civilisation at a time
when the resources of science seem
to be moie than ever reeded and
Euitok Bui.urriN: I feel like
growling, so will give vent if you
think it just. My first growl is at
3'ou. Like all the rest of the world
. e. the Honolulu world you
have Queen street in good condition
a little above your olllce, and, think
of course it must all be the same,
and talk about tho roads out at Pa
lama and other distant places being
out of order, while wo, close in the
city, are continually risking our
necks over the innumerable holes.
Doj'ou remember about seven or eight
years ago. in the time of wooden
rollers and bullocks, how every now
and then a fresh coat of metal used
to bo put down and rolled, let mo
see who was Minister then, Mr. Mott
Smith and afterwards Mr. Wilder.
Oil for the old bullocking days and
wooden rollers again, unless the
present new brooms awaken up and
make pedestrianism and equestri
anism safe. I sec that young man
whoso horse nearly disappeared down
one of the many holes in the Wai
kiki road and threw him has his hand
still in a sling, Will the Legislature
pass an appropriation for his ex
penses? I often see men, when finishing a
building and takitig down a scaffold
ing, actually throw their planks
down on to the ground from a great
height. It may bo a good plan for
facilitating the work, but suppose a
gust of wind should suddenly spring
up and carry the planks on to some
carriage. I don't think it would
cause the horse to stop. Suppose
an unfortunate's head should be in
the way, then those easy going
peelers, that one continually sees
gazing up from his stool, might in
terfere in the matter. It strikes mo
that it should not be allowed. I
trust all will be well if we live long
