'Originally, the government owned

It will be .minted out by Senator La
Folletto In his argument on this sub
ject thnt tho enormous profit of tho
telegraph business might well havo
been used to wlpo out Iho deficit In
tho post office department nnd to Im
prnvu the postal and tlio telegraph ser
vice. It Is tlio belief of good authori
ties that lower telegraph rates would
havo resulted In n greater uso of tho
telegraph and would In tho end h.ivu
brought greater profits.
Thin has been tho experience of all
tho pi fuel pal nations of tho world.
For In ulmost nil other countries tho
telegraph s) stems, are under govern
ment supervision or ownership. It Is
often stated by Interested parties that
these sv stems are run nt a Iosh, Thof
contrary, however Is tho truth.
Tltn maul, iiT i Krltipliiu' rntfia In Pnia.
sin, Hclgliim, Switzerland and Great ",
llrltaln was a surprise even to tho nfll- 6
clnls of thosu countries. In Franco, i
whero the rate vvns I educed 03 per
cent, tho result wns an Increnso of 64
per cent in messages. Iu Prussia, a
reduction of one third In tho rato wns -
followed by an Increase during thu
first month of 70 per cent Iu messages.
In Switzerland, where tho rato vvns
cut 50 per cent, In tho first three
months theio was nn Increase of 90
per cent in messages. In Hngland n
reduction of 33 or cent brought un T
Increnso of 100 per cent In the lues- .
sages iu two years. Iu Ilelglum, n re-
ductlon of 66 per cent increased tho i
Inland messages SOO per cent in flvo I
ears and tediiced the cxpenseii on
ench message neatly 50, per cent.
Comparisons between tho United
States and such countries ns Ilelglum,
l'russln nnd Oreat llrltaln uie usually
met with tho statement that thu great
er distances In the United Slates
make telegraphic conditions so differ
ent that such compnilsons ought not
to bo made. When u couipailson Is
suggested, however, between Austra
lia and the United States this ob
jection does not lie.
Australia has practically tho samo
nren ns the United States. Its total
population, how over. Is about 4,000,
000 as compared with 86,000,000 here.
Tho dimculty In cost of building und
maintaining telegraphs In Australia Is
necessarily much greater than In tho
United States. Nevertheless, tho
Australian telegraph s steins is run
by tho government without loss and
tho rates ate less than half nud very
nearly ono third of tho rates In tho
United States. This result is accom
plished by the economy wi ought by n
combination between thu postal and
the telegraph organizations. Prac
tically every Kistol!lcu Is n tclcgtnph
In Australia there nro 6000 ost of
fices to meet the requirement of 4.000,- ;
000 of people ono for every 666 peo- i
plo; nnd moio than 3000 of tlioso-aro
also telegraph stations being nboiit
one to nbout 1300 persons. In tho k J
United States there nro 27,000 lelo- I
graph stations for 80,000.000 people, I
cr n telegraph station for overy 3000
In the United States there nro "7,
000 post-offices, which Is, roughly, a
post-office for every 1000 pet sons.
