Washington. - Plans of the West.
ed ern Union Telegraph C'ompany to out
ed I it the State Department in connect
il. ing with the British cable and the ef
po- forts of France to deprive the U'nited
I" States of any share in the former GetI
a- man cables were revealed.
Newcomb H. Carlton. president of
id the Western Union. told the Senate
Interstate Commerce Committee that
)U the company's Barbadoes cable, which
ot; the government prevented being land
he ed at Miami. Fla., would be landed
I instead in L uba and connected at Ha
on vans with the Western Union cables

Yi sh connection between the United
Sates and 3a~badoes ,where the new
mt c ie is joined with the line of the
ed tish Western Company leading to
to azil and other South American
dnts.
"The State Department can tear ap
the cables between Havana and Mia
mi If it wants to," said Mr. Carlton,
r:"but we propose to go ahead and will
be be ready to send messages within a
short time."
d He added that the three cables now
r.:being operated between Miami and
e Havana are the chief means of com
 munication between the United States
re and Cuba and that the results would
be serious if the State Department
should tear up the lines. Two of
e these cables were landed under per
e mission granted by special act of ('on
g gress, so that the State Department's
only means of interrupting communi
1- cation would be the use of force, he
said.

_ bles to the west coast of South Amer. I

It ern coast of South America." He said I
