fP' i HACK IN A SKCONDr
NomrthlniE About the l.luri of th
Ureal northern mid EaMeru
llussia lind finished tlto land
hno ncrosa Siberin tho lino
which, it will bo remomboreJ,was
intondod to be part of tho routo so
long projected into tho United
Statos by Bering Strut. But tho
Amoricun and of the projont had
fuil'd, uud Russia found she had
an inU-rmiu:iblo stretch of lino
across b'r bureti stop))es, and
now mm noiiiini; to nuiicn tne
oud to. In fault of anything hot
tor to do with tho struggling ter
minus, it was cirriod to Vladivos
tok. Tho Northern Tolcgrapli
Company of Denmark saw tho
possibility of utilizing this ond
for a Europoui communicution
with China and Japan. Not that
China and Japan hud expressed
a dosire for such a union.
Tho wily Danes took caro not
to ask permission, but slipped the
land ond of 'their cablos into
shore in inoffensive drain- pipes,
and quietly mucin thoir connec
tions until thoy had a cable run
ning fiotn Hongkong to Amoy,
Gnuluu", Woo-Sung, Nngusaki
(Japan), and connecting with the
laud lino at Vladivostock. When
the Chinese wakened up to tho
presonco of tho cable, it was too
tato to objoct. Thoy simply pro
fossod theiusolves utterly sceptical
of its usefulness, anil rofused to
have anything to do with it.
However, thoy som had n prac
tical demonstration of its capnbil
itiefe. An Orioi tal more bold
then his compatriots resolved to
act on tho pricoof rico telegraphod
down to Shanghai from l'okiu,and
to buy up u quantity. Ho did so,
and made a big sum. Soon after,
a lottery drawing caino oil in
Pokin, in which many residents
of Shanghai were interested. The
lucky numbers wero telecraphed
down, hut tho majority of tho
hnklors telt it unorthodox to trust
to tho impious Western contriv
anco which disdaiuod timo and
spaco, two things which tho Im
perial Dragon himself had always
respected, and thoy lot their
scepticism go so far tliut they
sold thoir tickots for a song to
more progressive gamblers. Tho
next week, when tho recopnizoa
post arrived, tho report of the
tolegraph was confirmed. flTho
now contrivance could not havo
had a more impressive advertise
ment. Tho Great Northern Company,
in venturing into Chim-so waters
to pick up tho useloss ond of the
Russian hnd lino nt Vladivostok,
left a lloating end at Hongkong,
bat immediately another during
company camo on to meet it. The
year before, 1870, the famous
Eastern Telegraph Company, the
c.iblo compiny which today pos
sesses nearly twice as many miles
of cablo as any other in tho world,
had laid its linns from Lund's
End to Gibraltar, thenoo to Mal
ta, and on to Alexandria. It had
also laid a line from Aden to
Bombay. On tho other side of
the Indian peninsula, tho Eastorn
Tologruph Company, todaj' tho
socond largost in tho world, hud
Sicked up tho end laid down at
ombuy, and had run a cable
from Madras to Penung, and
from Penaiig to Singapore. Vhpp,
tho next yoar, tho Groat North
cm appeared in Chinese .wutors,
it was' nii' easy matter to run up
to Hongkong to moot it, and thus
was furnished the last link in tho
tremendous circle which, begin
ning in England, crosses tho uorth
of Europe and Asia, passes down
the eastern sons of Asia, and
through the Gulf of Bombay, tho
Indian Ocodn, the Mediterranean
Sea, and tuo o.int Atlantic, back to
