TO USE TELEGRAPH WOULD FACILITATE THE BUSINESS WHEN "HELLO" LINE IS BEING USED CONTINUOUSLY. OPERATORS WILL BE NEEDED System Is Employed in East-Call for Second Party by Telegraph While the First Is Telephoning. A change may be made in the telephone ofiiccs throughout the state within a short time. It is the intention of those at head quarers to use the telegraph as well as telephone in their offices. In that case it will be necessary that at least one in each office will have to be competent to send and receive telegraph messages with those of the telephone. When seen by an Inter Mountain represcntatives today, Mr. Bar low, local manager, said: "I do not know that a change will be anade at once, but this matter has been considered for several months. Our busi ness is growing so rapidly throughout the Northwest that the general olfficers have considered the advisability of using the line for the purpose of telegraphing. For instance, when a cu-tomer is using a line out of the city, all others must wait his turn, not only until the one talking has finished, but until the operator can use the same line to call up the person he wants to talk to. "This necessarily causes great delay, and it is too costly to put in a nu.mber of lines. Now, the business could be fa cilitated by using the same wire to call up the person wanted and have them ready to talk at the other end of the line after each of the preceding customers cc.aed to use it. "Between Boston and New York we have 40 wires but it is necessary to use the wires constantly in telegraphing. This has never interfered in any way with the talking and it would not do so here in this state. I do not know that this change will be made at once, but I feel assured it will be forthcoming within a year. "No, I do not see that it will necessitate every operator being also a telegrapher, especially in the large offices. In the smaller places this mnay be necessary, but the change is for the future, not the pres ent, and it is best not to climb a hill until we come to it."
