Telegraph and Postal System—
Paper from the Western Union
Telegraph Company.
-Mr. : Ortnn, . President, of- the West
ern Union Telegraph Company, laid before
the House committee on Postottiees, to-day,
a paper' on the proposed union of the
telegraph and postal system. This paper
presents a thorough and exhaustive state
ment of the present condition of the elec
tric telegraph in Europe and America.
' The statistics show that there is a larger
number of telegraph offices in proportion
to the population of this country Clian in
tny other in the world; while in Europe
there is but one telegraph office for every
47,651 of its inhabitants, in the TJuited
States there is one for every 7.549.
Tbe total number of telegrams trans
mitted in Europe, per annum, according to
the oflieial reports, is 1,633,000, at an ex
pense of $15,286,000. The average cost was
81 cents per message. The Western
Union Telegraph Company transmits 10v
067,000 telegrams per annum, at a cost of
$5,723,000, being an average of 75 cents
per message.
The European statistics include Ireland,
international and transit messages, and
these present a larger number of tele
grams than re actually transmitted, as
the same message is sometimes counted in
several countries, while those of the West
ern Union Telegraph Company are count
ed but once. By a proper allowance for
duplication in countries in Europe, the
actual number ol dispatches sent was 14,
012 000, at an average cost of $1 C9 each.
In no country in Europe is the telegraph
administration connected with the postr
office. In France and Spain the telegraphs
are under control of the Minister of the
Interior. Ih Russia, Prussia and Italy
they belong to the Ministry ot Public
Works. In Belgium the telegraph, rail
ways and postoffice form a general division,
under the Minister of Public Works, but
are kept distinct, . In Austria the adminis
tration Of the telegraph and the postoffice
were at one time united, but it was found
expedient to separate them. In Switzer
land the telegraphic organization is nearly
the same as in Prussia. The postoffice.
custom house and private establishments
supply the ieltments of an auxiliary staff,
but all the persons employed In the trans
mission or telegrams depend on the admin
istration of telegraphs lor their compensa
tion, and in the annual budget au appro
priation is' made for that service distinct
from the postoffice. - '
- An effort was made in France in 1864
to consolidate the postoffice and telegraph.
but owing to strong opposition on the
part of the chief functionaries of both ser
vices to such an amalgamation,1 it was re
linaoisbed. ' - . - ' '-; 1 -! -
.. The extent of lines snd wire belonging
to tbe Western Union Company, is more
than twice that of France, three times
greater than that of Prus-ia, and equal the
aggregate systems ot Austria, Prussia, the
lesser (jerman btates, Italy bpain, Uel
eium and Switzerland, and it is increasing
in a larger ratio than, any European sys
tem, v .i .-..! !-.:.; i -j ;'i I
. The cost ot construction of the telegraph
line in Great Britain and Ireland is $11,-
029.71 per mile. On this basis the value of
the lines belonging to the-'- Western
Union: i Company is $52,166,079.60. ' The
Western Union has 3.331 telegraph offices,
50.760 miles ot line, 97,416 miles of wire.
265 submarine cables and 6,J&9 skilled per
sons in its employ. " -..-'
In Continental Europe, where tbe tele
graphs are under "Government control,
there are hut. 4347,oUices tor a population
of over 250,000.000, while Great Britain, the
Dominion ot Canada, and the United States,
where the. telegraph bas hitherto been kfc.
to tbe control ot the people, lurnlsU, $,os9
otll'-es lor a population oi ci.uuu.mu. .
'The number of telegrams transmitted
per annum' In Continental Europe- Is only
12 436.000, while there were sent by the
people of the countries where it has been
hitherto free from Government monopoly,
13 471000. - '
Tbe. tariff of. ebarges sverages- $1.09 In
Continental-Europe, counting the messages
actually transmitted, while in the countries
where the people manage the business, it
averages but 61 cents.' It is a suggestive
fact that tbe amount of news furnished by
the Western Unin Company to the press
of the United States lor an aggregate sum
of $521,509 per annnm, is considerably
greater than the entire telegi aphic cor
respondence of Continental- Europe, fjr
which those Governments recive but
$11,597,632 .. .
Th bill Introduced by -Mr. Wnshburne
tor the establishment ot Government lines
provides tor a general tariff of one cent,
per word, with an additional charge ol
three cents for delivery, alid stipulates that
a reduction ot not more than fifty percent,
shall be made tor press reports.: This rate
would increase, the average cost of news
for the press of the United States more
than three hundred percent, and thus it.
Ids-plan be adopted, the newspapers woud
would be compelled to pay an extra tax
of a million dollars per annum lor . the
privileges they now enjoy.
The proposition ot Mr. Hnbbard to de
liver telegrams by letter carriers is shown
t be impracticable, as there are only lorty
six places where the post office has estab
lished free delivery of letters, out of a total
ol 29.000 postoffice In tbe United States. ' 1
It Is worthy ot mention,, that while tbe
rates lor telegraphing In the United States
do not average much more than, half as
much as tbo European charges tor he same
distance, yet lbs cost of labor and material
is nearly three times as great ere as lu
Europe, v' , ' - - '.,.'"'
Tbe assertion that the consolidation of
tbe telegraph; lines in the United States
caused an increase in the rates for tele
graphing, is not tiue.. In no instance has
tbe tariff been Increased since the consolidation.-
On ' the - contrary, there - 'has
been a steady - decrease, the rates
to more than one thousaud stations bavr
ing been lowered, .and this coarse Is rap
Idly continued.
The policy and practice ot this Company
favor a-reduction of the rates on dispatches
as rapidly as the necessary expenses of the
service will admit, and it offers, if the Gov
ernment will abolish its tax on the re
ceipts f jr transmitlng telegrams, to lower
the rates, until the - reduction upon the
gross receipts of business done shall be
twice as much as tbe tax remitted; this
would lessen tbe rabs lor telegraphing
nearly ten per cent., and would be a fur
better plan for famishing cheaper tele
graphic facilities to the. people, than the
constructing ot Government lines, at tl e
expense ot the national -treasury, not to
mention the creation ot a new rmy of ot
nce holders to superintend the Govern
ment lines. ...
Mr. Hubbard's bill to incorporate the
United States postal telegraph company,
and to establish a postal telegraph system
provides lor the establishment of tele
graph lines In all cities and villages of
5,000 Inhabitant , and over, In the United
Stales. ; Were this to be adopted the Gov
ernment would thus enter- into a partner
ship with the new company In telegraphing
Iu accoidenue with the terms of bill, what
is to become of smaller towns. 'According
