The Western Union Telegraph Co
makes a further announcement of the
establishment on March. l*t of the "Day
Letter," the companion of the 'Wigl t
Letter." The night letter whs estab

aud efficient une of the telegraph com
pany's surplus facilities, when such facil
ities are not utilized by the more urgent
traffic. The inauguration of the day
letter service will be especially service
able upon the Pacific coast, where, be
cause of the diff-rence in time between
this territory and the east, business may
be consummated in one day where vow
two may be required. No doubt busi

idly to the new service, and the tele
graph company has endeavored to fort
see and provide for the new situation in
cident t© the simultaneous establish
ment of the day letter throughout the
United States upon a given date.
