HOW ABOUT THAT CABLE.
Where Is the Pacific Cable Commit
tco's report? asks tho British Trado
Review. This Is a question which may
be pertinently asked at the presji.t
stago of cablo discussion. Our readers
will doubtless remember that from No
vember to April a Pacific Cable Com
mittee, representing Great Britain and
flvo colonies, sat at Intervals In'the Co
lonial Office. What the committee sat I
and did Is stll lshrouded In mystery so
far as wo In England are concerned.
In Australia, howexcr, they seem
able to anticipate us on this point. Ac
cording to the Australian newspapeis
the committee reported that tho ar
rangements lately made between tho
cable companies and certain of the Aus
tralian colonies would diminish the
revenues of the Pacific cable. They
thought, however, that the Pacific cable
would securo five-twelfths of tho total
traffic between Australia and the out'
sldo world, and that therefore Its com
petltors, tho cable companies, would
not be able to make tho reduction to
hulf-a-crown a word conditionally pro
posed In their agreement with South
Australia and other colonies.
The committee contemplated charging
two shillings a word tor transmlttluj
ordinary messages across tho Pacific,
and ono shilling moro to cover Ameri
can and Atlantic charges. Thus repo't
our Australian contemporaries. But
why are tho findings of the committee
kept so dark on this side?

Eighteen indignant young p-omn,

sleeves, walked out of the telephone
exchange nt 12 m. today vowing that
they would never return again, so help
them. They had had all kinds of trou

tho air of freedom. Not one backward
look did they cast but, lifting their
skirts nnd walking on their tip toes in
order not to como Into contact wltn
any part of the exchange building, they
silently slipped away.
Telephone subscribers .then, should
not be at all surprised If, this attar
noon, thoy tako down their car plccs
and receive no feminine response for

and the time of these Is up at 3 o'clock

she was no longer the head operator
and Louisa (we don't her other nam?)
was put In her place.
"We tried to make tho best of thlngi:
but the new head operator tried to

I to operate ono way and the new g'll
tried to teach us in a different way al
together. Sho was too strict and too

decided to quit. They never knew any

Just wlnktMl, nodded nnd mado signs
with our hands while nt tho board.
Then wo waylaid the girls who had not

about It. They Joined our ranks nn.l
we all went off to get some ginger pop
to celebrate on."
"I do not know If wo will go back
again. Perhaps wo will hold an Indig
nation meeting this afternoon and then
(lectdo on what to do. We may attack
and 'scabs' that are put on the system
but we are determined not to return to
work unless higher wages are offered
us. "This may cool us down."
Mr. Cassldy was asked what ho knew
about tho matter but ho declined to

not tell if any of the girls would le

formation ho desired. Mr. Ixwe was
asked what ho knew about tho matter
and ho laughingly replied that, tho ex
tent of his knowledge was that some
of tho girls had struck, that they all
had fathors and mothers and that some
of them had sweethearts.
