A meeting of the American Institute of
Electrical Bngineers was held .last night
in University Hall of the George Wash
ington University, 15th and H streets north
west. After a short business session Mr.
Edward Russell, who presided, Introduced
Mr. PaiTl ft. ftortotf, electrical engineer of
the Chesapeakft. and Potomac Telephone
Company, who made a brief address and
Introduced Mr. George C. Maynard, mechanical
. aqd electrical curator of the
Smithsonian Institution, who, he stated,
is oneT of the pioneer telephone men in the
District. ,
Mr. Maynard read a paper on the introduction
of ttie telephone in the District,
which was. In part, as follows:
"Prof. Alexander Graham Bell, who per
ieciea ana invented me wiepnuue, Honored
the United States by bringing It to
this city for Its first introduction, and
the people of the United States and of
this city can never too highly honor Prof.
Bell for his achievements. Had the inventor
appeared with accomplishments of
mystery and ceremony, bringing complicated
and elaborate apparatus for examination
and submitting some great problem
for investigation, the proposition would
have received more serious consideration;
but he simply presented a small piece of
wood, a magnetized steel rod, a tint heliz
of fine wire, a scrap of thin sheet iron and
announced that with one of these toys at
each end of a wire, persons could readily
hold conversation: therefore the proposition
was pronounced to be Impossible. Few persons
were even willing to try the experiment.
Fail to Understand.
"To most persons the demonstration was
so strange that they could only ascribe It
to supernatural power, and the only way by
which this feeling could be overcome was
By getting two intimate friends to talk with
each other, and thus make them understand
where the communications they received
really came from.
"In the fall of 1878 the telephone appeared
In this city. At the outset experiments
were made on special lines erected which
connected the Capitol and the departments,
the police lines and some others. The wires
leading from t'he Capitol ran. through an
underground cable, which was the first
underground circuit in this city. After a
short period of trial the telephone was offered
to the public as a practical device.
This proposition was received with much
incredulity and ridicule.
"Mr. Gardner G. Hubbard, under whose
control the telephone business had been
placed by Professor Bell, endeavored to cooperate
with the Western Union Telegraph
Company over their wires, but the company
pronouncea it a numoug. frivaio lines were
first established, connecting different offices
of local companies, and were equipped with
two hand telephones and magneto call
bells. One of the early installations was at
Kendall Green Institute.
Used First by Evening Star.
"The first experimental and educational
public central office was located at 1423 <5
street northwest, into which a number of
private wires were run and connected with
a twenty-four-wire Western Union peg
switch, the purpose of which was to give
persons an opportunity to experiment with
the new method. The first exchange operator
was Burnet L. Nevius. and the first
person to use the service was a reporter for
The Evenine Star assiernod to dutv at the
Capitol during the sessions of Congress.
After some explanations he was enabled to
send his reports of congressional proceedings
up to the latest hour before the paper
went to press. This first attempt was so
successful that The Star reporters at the
Capitol continued the practice until the end
of the session.
"The first public exchange was established
In October, 1878, and after a short
time the first fifty subscribers were secured.
In building the system wires were
run almost exclusively on housetops, as for
twenty years the District authorities opposed
the extension of the pole lines."
Mr. Maynard then described the equipment
of the central office. He stated that
at first boys were employed as operators,
but they proved unsatisfactory, and were
gradually replaced by girls. He said for
the first year of the business subscribers
were called by their full personal or firm
name, and when numbers were adopted the
greatest opposition was aroused. "In one
instance," he said, "a firm of three lawyers
refused to respond to calls unless the
name of each member was distinctly and
respectively ^given;
Toll System Introduced.
"Later on a toll system was arranged,
which caused a rebellion, due to a lack of
misunderstanding of what the results would
be. After considerable explanation a modified
plan was adopted by which yearly
rates were adjusted to the amount of business
done, and non-subscribers could pay
for occasional messages. The original number
of subscribers within six months increased
to 100, and thereafter increased
ahnut 100 ner vear to 1883."
Mr. Burton gave an interesting illustrated
lecture. on "Telephony," in which he described
the various uses of the telephone.
The illustrations consisted of a map of the
city showing how the cables are distributed
about the streets, the various methods of
stringing wires on poles and the erection of
cables on buildings.
Others who spoke on the subject were
Messrs F. H. Bethell, vice president, and
B. W. Trafford, general manager, of the
Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company.
The audience consisted largely of
employes of the mechanical division of the
telephone company.
Social Functions at Club House on
Brightwood ^A venue.
More than one hundred persons were in
attendance at the smoker of the members
of the Washington Automobile Club at the
club house, Briglitwood avenue, last evening.
Festivity and good fellowship was the
rule and during the course of the affair
mid song and story the autoists of the capital
city did ttteir best to see that every
guest had his full share of the fun that was
coming to him. The affair was the first of a
series that will be given by the members of
the club and was preparatory to the beginning
of the automobile show. It was a stag
affair and during the intermissions the members
and their guests visited the banquet 1
room of the club house, wjiere all kinds of
delicacies were served. Henry L. Prey,
Frank Thorndyke, Fred Russell and Mr. DeGrott
gave monologues and songs. William
C. Clabaugh sang several barytone solos and
SI Cummings of Montgomery county, Md.,
contributed a number of the laughter-provoking
stories that were in order. Robert
B. Caverly, the president of the club, was
master of ceremonies. Moving pictures were
thrown upon a screen at opportune times.

In the United States Is set forth In
a bulletin Issued by the census. bureau
today. The statistics presented are for
1000 and relate to the employment of children
at breadwinners, of whom 1,750,000 in
round numbers, between the ages of ten
and fifteen-years, were so employed. Breadwinners
are defined as those earning money
regularly by laibor contributing: to the family
support, or appreciably assisting In
mechanical or agricultural industry.
By far the most important oocupation for
children is that of agricultural laborers,
the number of children ten to fifteen years
of age so employed being 1,054,446. About
two-thirds of the total number of child
breadwinners were ?invAi nn' th?? form
and most of these children were members
of the farmers' families. Next In Importance
comes domestic service, or the occupation
of servants and waiters op waitresses,
in which 138,006 children were employed,
most of them being girls. About
one-third of th^children employed in gainful
occupations were fifteen years of age,
and more than one-half were fourteen or
fifteen years. The number fourteen years
of age was TOO,623. or 45.2 per cent of the
Of the total number of child breadwinners
ten to fifteen years of age 72.2 per
cent were boys and 27.8 per cent girls.
Almost invariably the percentage of
breadwinners Is much greater among foreign-born
children than amonr native rhll
dren. The percentage of breadwinners
among negro children is much higher than
among white children. 1
Majority in the Cotton Kills.
The cotton mills furnish employment to "
children to a greater extent than any other J
manufacturing or mechanical industry. In *i
1900 the number of cotton mill operatives j
ten to fifteen years of age was 44,427. Of .
the 71,022 messengers and errand and office *j

boys, 23.3 per cent were office boys and 14.7 "i
per cent were bundle and cash boys or girls, j
Nine-tenths of the children employed in "
such service are boys.
The occupation of the textile worker, or J
the needle trades, furnished employment to ]
35,070 children between ten and fifteen years J
of age, of whom 5,136 were boys and 29,934 j
were girls. The total number of children J
ten to fifteen years of age engaged in the J
tobacco and cigar factories was 11,462. Of 4

5,365, or 10.7 per cent, were from ten to ]
fifteen years of age. H
Of the 23,657 children for whom statistics "
were specially compiled 17.956, or 75.0 per "j
cent, were living in homes with their par- H
ents; 3,380, representing 14.3 per cent, or
approximately one-seventh of the total num
ber, were living with widowed mothers, and *
578. or 2.4 per cent, with mothers who were '
living apart from their husbands and whose j
economic nositinn wn? Hk^lv
be analogous to that of a widow. The num- .
ber of children that were either fatherless .
or were not living with fathers was 4.943, .
representing about one-fifth of the total
Percentage of School Children. !
The percentage of school children In the "
total population five to nine years of age "
enumerated in the United States was 53.3,
which is only a little higher than the per- "
centage (50.6) shown for selected families .
included In this study. Of the number of
children ten to fourteen years of age in "
these families only 31.9 per cent were at .
school, while the corresponding percentage

age in the United States was 79.8. But
after these children reach the age at which *
the opportunity for employment as wage- *
earners begins the'.r school attendance suf- "
fers. "
In the families with child breadwinners .
schooling rarely extends beyond the age of .
thirteen. Of the children fourteen years .
of age 97.4 per cent were employed and only .
1.0 per cent were at school.
Of the total number of children ten to
fourteen years of age in the United States
7.1 per cent were illiterate, as compared *
with 18.8 per cent for the child breadwin- '
ners of the same age Included in this tabu- '
lation. For the messengers and errand and
office boys the per cent of illiterary is com- *
paratively small. .
By far the greatest degree of illiteracy .
is that shown for the children in cotton .
mills. In the south almost one-half of the
cotton mill operatives ten to fourteen years
of age are Illiterate and about one-fourth
of those fifteen to twenty years of age.
The smaller percentage in the older group *
of operatives would indicate that a good "
many of these children learn to read and [
write after they are ten years of age. But ]
the percentage of illiteracy In the elder
group is still very high, rendering it prob- *j
able that large numbers of these children 1
are destined to remain illiterate for the rest J
of their lives. J
Building Inspector Suggests Creation
of Two Inspection Districts. I
Snowden Ashford, building inspector.
wants the building laws changed so as to *
divide the citv into two senarate hnilrlinfi- .
inspection districts, and by adopting this *
plan he contends that in erecting new *
buildings and Are escapes and the installa
tion of electric wiring in them many con- *
flicts by the local departments of the Dis- *1"
trict government would be avoided. Ac- _
cording to the. present arrangements a
newly erected fire escape must be approved
both by the building inspector and the fire
chief, and he thinks that 8,/regulation which
would only require the approval of either
the building inspector or the fire chief to
erect the fire escape would facilitate better P<
service and would prove more satisfactory hi
to the contractors and builders. m
"With the passage of the new fire-escape .
law last March," Mr. Ashford said yesterday,
"I made this recommendation to the hi
Commissioners, but it did not meet with hi
their approval at the time because they |n
contended that such an arrangement might ?
tend to destroy uniformity In the construction
of buildings in different sections of the H
city." vi

It is understood that preparations are be- u]

for the reception of the steel material K

Cruise of Revenue Cutter.
The United States revenue cutter Apache,
on her last cruise on the bay, found the
schooner Only Son. Capt. W.. W. Reynor,
lying In the Eatuxent river with her satis
rrozen and so badly damaged that they
could not be used. The vessel was also
leaking. Capt. Reynor was anxious to get
his craft to Mlllenbeck, on the Rappahannock
river, and, at his request, Capt. Wild
of the Apache took his vessel In tow and
carried It to that river. During the eight
days' cruisc of the Apache her officers
boarded and Inspected forty oyster-dredging
vessels and found them all in first-class
order, and no one aboard them ftad com
plaint to make of the treatment he was receiving.
This condition of affairs shows
that the new anti-shanghaiing law Is working
well and that the vessel masters are
observing Its requirements. On the cruise
the Apache covered 581 miles on the bay.
The cutter will leave Baltimore today with
a new launch, which she will deliver to the
I master of the cutter Onondaga at Norfolk.
