TDE8DAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 20, 1886.
THE ATLANTIC CABLE.
. BANaU-CT TO CYRUS W. FIELD.
THE STORY OF THE GBEAT ENTERPRISE.
Mr. C?bus W. Field was fitly honored in Now
York on tho ovoning of tho 15th, with a hanquot,
ginpn hy tho members of tho Ohnmbor of Com
merce, as a tribute to bia oxcrtions in the laying of
the Atlantic Cabio.
Mr. Field, in a long and interesting address, gnvo
a history of tho undertaking, interermrscd wit i
many incidonts Ulustrativo of tho difficulties over
come and tho indomitable porsovoranco by which
auccoss was achieve :1.
Tho enterprise was shown to havo boon of pure
ly American origin, tho plan having been coucoiv
?d and considered thirteen years ago, whon about
half a dozon gentlemon mot at Mr. Field's resi
dence, and tiloso who carno first to the work stood
by it to the ond. It was not till 185G that tho en
terprise had any cxiutonco in England, and thon
tho British Government bogan that generous
courso which it haB continuod over since. Tho ex
peditions of 1857 and tho two of 1858 wcro Joint
efforts, but for tho timo thoy ondod in failure.
Whon tho sciontifio and engineering problems
woro solvod wo took heart again, and oegan to
proparo for a fresh attempt. This was in 186*3. In
this country-though tho war was still raging-I
?went from city to citv, holding inootingB and try
ing to raiso capital, but with poor success. Mon
carno and listened, and said "it was "all very fino,"
and "hoped I would succeed," but did nothing. In
one of those citios thoy gave mo a largo meeting,
and passed somo beautiful resolutions, and ap
pointed a committee of "solid mon" to canvass tho
city, but I did not got a solitary subscriber. Li
this city I did bettor, though monoy carno by tho
hardest. By personal solicitations, onconragod by
you, sir, and other good frionda, I succeeded in
raising ?70,000. ?Since ndt many had faith, I must
pr?sent ono example to tho contrary, though it
was not till a year later. Whon almost all deemed
it a hopeloss scheme, one gentleman of this city
carno to mo and purchased stock o*f tho Atlantic
Telegraph Company to tho amount of $100,000.
That was Mr. Loring Andrews, who is boro this
evoning to boo his faith rewarded. But at the time
I speak of, it was plain that our main hopo must
Ile in England, and I wont to London. Thor
too it dragged hoavily. There was a profound
discouragement. Many had lost before, and
wero not willing to throw moro monoy into the
Boa. Wo needed ?000,000, ond with our utmost
efforts wo had raised less than half, and there tho
enterpriso stood in a doad lock. It was plain that
wo must havo holp from some now quarter. I look
ed around to find a man who had broad shoulders,
and coidd carry a heavy load, and who would bo a
giant in tho cause. It wbb at this time I was in
troduced to a gontleman, whom I would hold up to
the American public as a specimen of a great
hearted Englishman. Air. Thomas Brassey. You
may never have hoard his name, hut in London ho
is known as one of tho mon who havo made British
enterpriso and British capital felt in all parts of
the earth. I went to seo him, though with fear
and trembling. Ho received me kindly, but put
me through such an examination as I nover had
before. I thought I was in tho witness box. He
asked mo ovory possible qnostion, but mv answers
. satisfied him, and ho onded by saying "it was an
enterpriso which ought to ho carried out, rnd that
ho would be one of ten men to furnish tho monoy
to do it." This was a pledge of 60,000 pounds ster
ling 1 Encouraged by this noble ofier, I looked
about to find another such man, though it was
almost Uko trying to find two Wellington-?. But
ho was found in Mr. John Pondor, of Manchester.
I went to his office one day in London, and we
walked together to tho House of Commons, and
before wo g ', there ho said he would take an equal
share with Mr. Brassey.
The action of theso two gentlemen was a turn
ing point in the history of our enterprise. For it
led shortly after to a union of the well known firm
of Glass, Elliott & Co. with the Gutta Pordia Com
pany, making of the two ono grand concern known
as the "Telegraph Construction and Maintenanco
Company," which included not only Mr. Brassey
and Mr. Pondor, but other mon of great wealth,
such aa Mr. George Elliott and Mr. Barclay, of
London, and Mr. Henry Bowley, of Dublin;' and
which thus reinforcod with immenso capital, took
up the whole enterpriso in its strong arms. Wo
needod, I havo said, ?600,000, and with all our ef
forts in England and Amorica, wo had raised only
?285,003. This now company now carno forworu
and offerod to tike tho whole remaining ?315.000
besidos ?100,000 of the bonds, and to make its own
S routs contingent'on success! Mr. Richard A.
lass was made Managing Director, and gavo en
ergy and vigor to all its departments, boing ad
miraby seconded, by tho Secretary. Mr. Snulor.
Mr. Glass has been recently knighted for his ser
vices in carrying out the. Atlantic Telegraph-an
honor which ho most justly deserves.
Mr. Field thus referred to tho doparturo of the
Great Eastern, July 15th, 1805, on her memorable
For a week all went well; wo had paid out 1200
milos of cabio, and had only COO mdea farther to
go, when hauling in tho cable to remedy a fault, it
partod and wont to tho bottom. That day I can
nover forget-how mon paced tho deck in despair,
looking out on tho broad uca that had swallowod
up thoir hopes; aud then how tho bravo Canning
for uino days and nights draggod tho bottom of
tho ocean for our lost troasure. and though ho
grappled it three times, failed to bring it to the
Burfoco. The story of that expedition, as written
by Dr. Russoll, who was on board tho Groat East
ern, is one of tho most marvellous chapters in tho
wholo history of modorn ontcrpriBO. Wo roturncd
to England defeated, yet full of resolution to begin
tbo battle anew. Measures wore at once taken to
make a Bccond cable, and fit out a now expedition,
and with that assurance I carno home last autumn.
In December I wont back again, whon, lol all
our hopes had sunk to nothing. Tho Attorney
General of England had given his written opinion
that wo had no legal right, without a speoial act of
Parliament (which could not bo obtained under a
yoar), to issue tho now 12 per cent, shares, on
which wo relied to raiBO our capital. ThiB waa a
terrible blow. Tho works woro at once stopped,
and tho money which had been paid in returned to
tho Bubsoribora. Buch was the state of things
only ton months ago. I reached London on tho
.24th of Decembor, and the next day waa not a
"merry Christmas" to mo. But it waa an inex
pressible comfort to havo the counsel of such mon
as Sir Daniel Gooch and Sir Richard A. Glass, and
to hoar stouthoartcd Mr. Brassey toll us to go
ahead, and if need woro ho would put down ?60,000
moro. It was finally concluded that the best
?course was to organize a now company, which should
u-uumo the work, and so originated tho Anglo
American Tolograph Company. It was formed
by ton gontlomon who mot around a tablo in
London, and put down ?10,000 apiece. I hopo tho
o-collont Soorotary of this company, Mr. Doano,
who carno with us across tho ocean, will write its
history, and tell the world what life and vigor woro
?omprisodin its Board of Directors. Tho grea?
' Tolegraph Construction and Maintenance Company,
undaunted by tho failuro of last year, answorod ub
with a B-bacription of ?100,000. Boon after the
books wore opened to tho publie, through tho omi -
nont banking house of J. 8. Morgan & Co.. and in
fourteon days wo had raised tho wholo ?600,000.
Then the work bogan again, and went on with
?upo ort. Novor was greater onorgy infused into any
?enterprise. It was only the first day of March that
itho new company waa formed, and was registered
as a company tho noxt day, and yet such was the
vigor ana dispatch that in fivo months from that
?day tho cable nad boon manufactured, shipped on
the Groat Eastern, strotchod across tho Atlantic
and was Bonding messages, literally swift as light
ning, from continent to continent.
Tho noxt offort was tho rocovery of tho old cabio
with the doop-8oa grapnols:
At first it was a little awkward to fish in snob
.deep water, but our men got usod to it. and soon
?could cast a grapnel almost as straight as an old
whalor tljrowB a harpoon. Our fishing line wa8 of
formidablo sizo. It waa mado of ropo, twisted
with wires of stool, so as to bear a strain of thirty
tons. It took about two hours for tho grapnel to
roach bottom, but wo could toll whon it struck.
I often wont to tho bow and sat on the rope, and
could feel by tho quiver that the grapnel was
dragging on the bottom two milos undor us. But
it waa a very slow business. We had storms and
calms, and fogs and squalls. Still we worked on
day after day. Once, on tho 17th of August, we
Sol tho cabio up and had it in full sight for
ve m-Mites, a long, slimy monster, fresh from
the ooze of the ocean's bed, but our men -bogan
to cheer ho wildly that it eiwrned to be frightened,
and snddonly broke away and wont down into the
HO-. This accident kopt na at work two wooka
longor; but finally, on the last night of Angxiet,
wo caught it. Wo bad cast the grapnel thirty
times. It waa a little boforo midnight on Friday
night that wo hooked tho cabio, and it was a little
aftor midnight Sunday morning whon wo got it on
board. What was tho anxiety of thoso twonty-six
hours ? Tho strain on ovory man's Lifo waa liko
tho strain on tho cabio itnoif. Whon finally it ap~
poorod, it was midnight: tho lights of tho ship,
and in tho boats around our bows, as thoy ilasbod
in tho faoos of tho mon, showed thom eagerly
watching for tho cabio to appoar on tbo water. At
length ft was brought to tho surface. All who
woro allowed to approach crowded forward to soo
it. Yot not n word was spokon, only tho vo?cob of
the of-ccra in command Ml heard giving
orders. All folt as if lil- and death hung on tho
i:i8U0. It was oi?y whon it was brought o vor tho
bow and on to tho deck that mon dared to broatho.
Even thou thoy hardly boliovcd thoir oyoa. Homo
crept toward it"to fool of it, to bo sine it was Uioro.
Then wo carried it ulong to tho electrician's roo-n,
to soo if onr long Bought for ti .usure -was alive Or
dead. A fow minutes of suspenso, and a flanh
told of tho lightning currant again sot freo. Thon
did tho feeling long pont up burst forth.
Our two cables do thoir part woll. Tlioro aro no
way stations between Ireland and Newfoundland,
where me.eagos havo to bo repeated, and tho
lightning never lingors moro than a Bocond in tho
bottom of tho sen. To those who feared that thoy
might be used up or wear out, I would say, for
thoir relief, that tho old cabio works a littlo hotter
than tho now ono, but thut ifl because it 1ms boon
down longer, as timo improvM tho quality of gutta
porcha. I3ut tho now ono is constantly growing
hotter. To show how delicate aro theso wondorful
cords, it is enough tostato that thoy can bo workod
with tho smallest battery powor. When tho first
cabio was laid m '53, electricians thought that to
senda current two thousand miles it must bo almost
lilio a stroke of lightning. But God was not in the
oarthquako, but in tho still small voice. Tho othor
day Mr. Latimor Clark telographod from Ireland
across tho ocean and back again, with ?. battery
formed m a lady's thimblo 1 And now Tur. Collett
writes me from lloart's Content : "I L.i vo just sent
my compliments to Dr. Gould, of Ci> -luritlgo, who
is at Valentia, with abattory coiiiposed of a gun
cap, with a strip of zinc, cscUcu by a drop of
water, the simple bulk of a tear 1" A telegraph
that will do thal, wo think noarly porfoct. It lins
never failed for an .hour or a minute.
A word about fho tariff. Complaint has been
made that it was so high no to be very oppressive.
I bog all to remember that it is only threo months
and a half sinco tho cabio wns laida It was laid at
a groat cost and a grout ri_k. Different companies
liad sunk in thoir attempts twelve millions of dol
lars. It was still au experiment, of which tho re
sult was doubtfid. This, too, might provo another
costly failure. Even if successful, wo did not
know how long it would work. Evil prophets in
both countrios predicted that it would not last a
month. If it did, wo wcro not sura of having moro
than ono cable; nor how much work that one could
do. Now these doubts arc rosolvcd. Wo have not
only one cable, but two, both in working order;
and wo find instead of five words a minute, we can
send fiflcon. Now wo arc freo to reduco the tariff.
Accordingly it has boon cut down ono-half, and I
hope in a fow months wo can bring it down to one
quarter. I am in favor of reducing it to tho lowest
Iioiut at which wo can do the business, keeping tho
ines working day and night. And then-if tho
work grows upon us so onormously that wo cannot
do it-why wo must go to work and lay moro cables.
