Since the laying of the first cable the system has rapidly extended until now practically all lands and conti nents are Joined together. In 1880 there were about 61,000 miles of cables in operation in various parts of the world. To-day there are over 250.000 nautical miles of cable laid and work ing. Practically all the Important South American business centers are telegraphically connected, and numer ous additional extensions are being contemplated. The east coast of South America is reached at Pernambuco by the East ern Company's cables as far as Aiores necessary, to government business business and in case of war the cable absolutely controlled. The Valparalso-Iqulque cable was laid on January 27, 1906. On August 14, 1906. service between Iqulque and Valparaiso, Chile, was suspended, and upon Investigation It was discovered thnt a whale had become entangled in the cable. The April, 1906, Bulle tin of the New York Zoological society states that the cable in which the whale was entangled weighed in air, while wet. 1,715 pounds per nautical mile, and bad a breaking strain of 6.06 tons. The cable's weight In salt wa ter was 1,005 pounds per nautical mile. When the trouble with the cable was discovered tests from Valparaiso and Iquique placed the break about 13 miles from the latter place. On au gust 16, 1906, the repair ship Faraday left Iqulque for the position of the VH IT X I TAT S S V A i N VjI ,,t,TIA J) Cable Lines of the Sou th American Republics. or Lisbon, and from thence by the Western Company via St Vincent The French government has laid a ca ble to Senegal, which ia met there by the lines of the South American Cable Company. A German company (subsi dized by government), also has a route to Brazil via Teneriffe. The cble of the Central and South American Telegraph Company was opened for traffic In August 1907, and has been the means or bringing Latin American countries in direct commu nication with the United States. This cable extends from New York via Guantanamo to Colon and connects with a line across the Isthmus of Pan ama and thence to the South American Coast System. No part of the cable touches on foreign territory, and the United States government Is particu larly Interested In ita operation, as the landing ends can be secured in an emergency, precedence giTen, If break and commenced grappling It 342 fathoms, with 500 fathoms of rope out. The cable was hove up. cut, and teBted to Iquique. The end was buoyed and the ship ' grappling farther out picked up the cable, which came In badly" twisted and with Increasing strain. A large whale was brought tc the surface completely entangled in the cable. The ship made aoundlngt in the vicinity, which showed a depth of 415 fathoms (2,490 feet nearly one half mile). The logical conclusion is that it 'be came entangled during the laying ol the cable, eight months before, when there was considerable length of it in suspension.. The twisted condition ol the stiff and heavy cable about the anl mal shows thai the energy expended In the vain effort to free Itself mus have been enormous.
