Announcement- Made by Clarence H.
Macej~y. Eight Years' Lapse.
-New Yorw, Jan. 21.--Clarenco (H.
Mackay, president of 'Commercial Ca
bles Postal Telegraph system has an
nounced that his company has just
completed a contract With the German
Atlantic Cable company, a German
corporation, .under the terms of
which direct cable communication
with Germany will 'be restored after
a lapse of eight years.
This contract, which has Just been
signed, cills -for laying a new cable
between 'New York and Emden, Ger
many, with the cable touching at the
Azores, to be completed and in op
eration -by October 1923. The arrange
ment -provides for the Commercial Ca
ble company to lay a cable from New
York to the Azores, (2,302 miles) and
for the German company to make the
connection between the Azores and
Emden (1,888 miles). The iwo sections'
will be joined at the Azores station
and all messages will be transferrea
automatically from one to the other,
giving -what'.virtually will be instan
taneous service between the two coun
The contract 'further provides that
the Commercial Cables Postal Tele
graph system shall handletto the Ger
man company all messages collected by
the United States destined for Ger
Many and that the German company
shall reciprocate 'by sending all Its
American traffic via the Commercial
Cables 'Postal Telegraph system.
The laying of this new ca'ble is -the
first attempt at resumption of direct
communication 'between the United
States and Germany. (During the war
there was no cable communication be
twieen Germany and the United States.
Since the signing of the armistice all
cable messages sent between the two
countries have had to pass either
through England or France. This plan
has not proven satisfactory to Ameri
can business interests and 'the new ca
ble is being put down in response to a
widespread demand on the part of
commercial houses, banking institu
tions and others interested in the trade
relations of the United States and
Germany 'for 'better communication fa
cilities. Prior to the outbreak of the
World War 'Ahere were two cables be
tween the United States and Germany
and .both were. operated by the Con
emercial company alt-houlgh owned by
the German-Atlantic Cable company.
The first of these iwas laid in 1900 and
the second in 1904. They extended
from New York to the Azores, and
thence to Emden, Germany.
The sections between Emden and
the Azores were cut in the English
channel by the British admiralty
within an hour after Great Britain de
clared war upon Germany, August 5,
1914, -and from then until March, 1917,
lay dormant. In March, 1917,- they
again were cut by the British govern
ment at a point more than 60O miles
from New York, and one of the cables,
under agreement between Great Brit
ain and France, was diverted into Hal
ifax, Nova Scotia, and IPenzance, Eng
land, and since July 1, 1916 has been
used 'by the British government as part
of its Imperial Telegraph and Cable
system. The French .government did
not remove the othuer erstwhile Germr
cable from American shores, but
November, 1917, thie French cable shi)
Jermanac, arrived at New' York and
out .both cables some five miles from
their landing place at tiho Commercial
Cable company's station -at Far -Rocka
way, and diverted one of theni into
the French Cable company's station at
Coney Island1 The~end diverted to the
French Cable company station was put
into operation by that company, under
control of French government, between1
New York and Brest, France, via the
*"The; disposition of these two ex
German cables," said Mr. Mackay in
his statement yesterday, is now in the
hands of .the five allied powers to
whom the. eables were- ceded by many
under the treaty of peacc and the Com
mercial Cable company has filed a
very substantial claim aigaitnst thema
On accouuit of .its former contract for
the operation of these cables, which
contract :was impossible of resumption
at~ the 'elope of the war because of the
seizure of. the calbles .by- t'he British
and 'French governments. In mAking
the contract for the laying of the new
German cable. th~e Commercial Cable
company in no way ceded any of its
rights or claims against the allied pow-~
