Im Becoming litiiliir.
The matter of ajitimatic telpnhrn:
- . 1
service which is now under considera
tion by the Union Electric Telephone
and Telegranh eomnanv is conmai-.i.
tively a new departure in science as fa-
as actual practice is concerned thoush
the Invention is a number of years old.
It is nevertheless being put into oper
ation in the leading cities of tfc:
country, where the citizens, havinj
long ago lost patience with the manual
system, eagerly join hads and assist
the enterprise. In Chicago the system
is being used to a limited extent and
by experts it is claimed to be a great
success: The , city council of New
York recently granted a franchise tJ
the' promoters of tie device. At Lo?
'Angelel, Cal., and San Francisco ex
changes, for the automatic system are
being Inijialjed. The city commission
ers of Houston, Texas, recently grain
ed a franchise to'She promoters of tho
new device, the company being organ
ized with a capital stock b.f $1,000,00).
At Decatur the installation of Ihe new
system is now being considered, .with
me nrooau.iuy 01 iavorauie action. j
In all cities where this new system
is being installed, however, the fran
chise was not secured until a bitter
fight .was participated in, in which the
Bell interests were a party.
Operation N Simple.
Although the automatic telephone,
when its possibilities are considereJ.
would seem to be quite complicated, it
is comparatively simple. By means
of a dial upon which are the tsn num
erals, any uumber to a billion may be
called or any number at all. this only
bing limited to the number of tele
phones for which the system is con
structed. A fixed point is constructs!
in connection with this dial which co'i-
trcls the-making of connections. If
a subscriber desires to call for instance
4312, first the figure 4 is drawn oppo
site the fixed point the receiver hav
ing been taken from the hook second
the figure 3, then 1 and last 2, then U
ring the party the button is pressed
and the work is done. Special arrange
meat Js made for emergency calls." Ii
can be so arranged by the dial to be
governed by a number that all of the
fire stations in the city niay be placed
on the line and a fire reported without
delay. The same arrangement may be
had for police and ambulance cals.
Tewt of lluxy Line. tfSSSB
"First come, first served." is the ruli
in talking to friends, that is to say if
two persons call a party simultaneous
ly, the first one of them to move tho
dial may talk "first and the other is
notified of the condition by a "buzzing"
in the ear which is the notice that, the
line 'is .busy. In order K test the lftie
all that is necessary is to call the num
ber of the phone that is desired to be
tested, and if the "buzzing" sound is
heard It is in order; if it is not, then
the line is out of order. But it is un
necessary to notify t'je exchange as
persons are regularly s employed to
watch the switchboard which is always
under the testing process and if a lin
is discovered to be giving trouble it
can be ascertained at once. By instru
ments rrlde especially for the purposo
any trouble in the cables can be lo
cated within a few inches and if the
trouble is not in the exchange or in
the cables underground, then it muat
be in the telephone itself and repai;
can be made immediately. ?
Conneet With Old Stjle.
As a rule a general operator is em
ployed at the exchange, in addition to a
trouble man for each 100 telephones,
and a long distance operator is also em
ployed. It is unnecessary for all cities
with which communication is desire i.
to have the automatic phones installed,
as connections with the old style tele
phone can le affected. I
