Protection, to -Mutual Telephone Co.'s
Wires Against Electric Light
Mr. L.S. Amidst, supurintundout oC
1 ho Mutual Tuluphouo Co.'s systom,
is just liuialiiii,' lliu putting into the
i-uutral station of a Hubbard light
niug arrestor. This contrivance has
been imported from Antwerp, Bol
gium,atgroatuxpeiibo, for the protec
tion of the telephone wiros from the
results of contact with, or induction
from, thu electric Hirht conductors
now being hung numerously through
the streets, in many cases directly
above tho telephone wires aud fre
quently crossing over their routes.
It is an invention used in countries
whore lightning is more common
and destructive than hero, to arrest
the electric fluid generated in the
natural elements of the firnianont.
The apparatus is a pretty piece of
mechanism, consisting of an upright
wooden partition perforated for the
telephone wires. It is sot up in a
room back of the operating room,
and tho wiros are lud to it from out
side through lead cables. Each
cable's complement of wiros is mark
ed with initial letters at tho ends of
the several rows of holes. What ar
rests the electric current when it be
comes too strong is a cylindrical
fuse not much bigger than the per
cussion cap of an old-fashioned
musket. The fuse consists of a roll
of asbestos enclosing strip of lead
foil, and is held in place by two
springs. Each wire makes a break
at the fuse, the lead foil maintaining
the connection for conducting tho
current." Only a mild current of
electricity is required for the tele
phone. Should lightning strike or
the strong current from an electric
light wire reach the telephone line,
it would molt awav the lead foil
where it is made very slight in the
heart of the fuse. This would com
pletely cut oil connection with tho
wiio entering the operating room,
and tho asbestos being lire proof
would prevent danger of lire. The
arrester has a capacity of 800 wiles.
In sotting up the arrester Mr.
Aungst had to make 2300 connec
tions, yet he has completed the work
without any interruption to the ex
tensive service of tho company. He
will shortly bo able to put protec
tors against either artificial or natu
ral electricity in the houses of sub
scribers, which will unable them to
retire to peaceful slumber in the
midst of storms that are apt to
cause induction or the crossing of
electric light with 'telephone wires.
The operating switchboard of tho
Mutual sj-stem is of the most ap
proved pattern. It is equipped for
a thousand subscribers, and the cap
acity can bo increased to two thou
sand. An idea of the extent to
which tho telephone is used may be
gained from the fact that nearly
lour thousand calls on "Central"
have been made in ten hours, ac
cording to the record that is occa
sionally taken in tho Mutual ollice.
There is in the operating room tho
automatic lire aUtm that rings the
gong and loosens the horses in the
engine house, also an alarm switch
that will ring fifty soparate tele
phones for a lire, on tho pull of a
lover by the operator. The appara
tus for making connections between
town telephones and the country
circuit stations is very ingenious.
It stands upright at the end of the
switchboard. When a call is made
from the country a hinged tag drops
down in view of the operator, show
ing him the station wanting to make
THE TRAFFIC IN OPIUM.
Tho U. S. S. Charleston and Other
Vessels as Smugglers.
For a number of years past Val
lejo has been the headquarters of an
opium ring which has made many
thousands of dollars in smuggling
tho drug. Not long ago a aloop
from .San Francisco lauded about
.$30,000 worth of tho drug at South
Vallejo, from which place it was
transported to Napa, Suisuu and
Beuicia, thence to San Francisco in
small quantities, where it was sold
to the opium joints.
1'rior to this the ring lauded sev
eral thousaud dollars' worth in Val
lejo, which was transferred to the
Uuited States ship Charleston and
conveyed to Honolulu. 1 ho drug
in this particular instance was put
ou board of tho cruiser Charleston
in potato sacks, and in charge of tho
coiHwniu of tho steam launch was
taken contraband ou board as pota
toes for tho ship's uiossos.
Tho "potatoes" were stowed in
ship's boats, aud when tho cruiser
reaoliotl the parnuiso of tho racihe
they wore transferred to tho shore
ami disposed of by tho coxswain.
When the leader of tho ring, a
Vallojoito, reached Honolulu on tho
steainor Australia and sought tho
coxswain, donmuding his drug, ho
was nonplussed on being told that
no such thing existed. Tho potatoes
had been sold to Sam Loui, a Chi
ueo bumboat man, Tho leader made
threats, but all to no avail, as the
bold Jack tar threatened to have him
thrown in jail as a smuggler, having
iiinolo proof that such was the case.
'1 ho leader of tho gang returned
by tho uoxt steamer, oulv to sond
j another cargo by tho noH war ship
, going to Hawaii. This has boon
! going on for years aud has proved
, most profitable, Sovoral sacks of
, opium have boon found auuhoiod in
tho km or bay by IkmIuhui, who ny
I nothing, but dispoo of thu drug to
j local iIuuIum for litilf piico, (,'hront
