With the except i. in of the silver clause

the Mississippi, yesterday, and The

uponjto test the irrprovement, with re
sults satisfactory. The cable construc
tion has been for '.be most part exper
imental, but it is found tbat tbe cable
has completely done away with the in
duction that has be ;n making trouble on
the bridge. No pound cf street cars or
telegraph comes to the man who talks or
listens through this cable. There still
remains some work to be done in making
talk as plain when the lines of subscrib
ers on either side of the river are connec
ted with this cable as when the cable is
used alone. There is now some trouble
when the two are combined; but it is felt
tbat an important step has been gained,
and there is strong hope that all the in
duction and fish-frving will soon be
eliminated from the trans Mississippi
