CABLE ROUTING TO BE CHANGED Will Run Direct to Ketchikan in Future, Suy? Head of System, Colonel Seone "It Is desired that you Inform the mayor that this office took up with Washington the question of making changes In the routing of the Sitka Juneau ruble so that the "Y" at Kan shaw would be cut out and the cable brought into PetersBfcrg by laying approximately 40 miles of cable, with a view to improving the service at Kctchikan. This chango has been approved, but It may be some time beforo the necessary cablc for the purpose becomes available, probably not before Juno or July, when the Burnslde will go north for the purpose of muklng the changes." Tho foregoing paragraph Is part of a letter received this morning by Sergeant L. J. DeLong, operator In charge of the Kctchikan cablc office, from Col. Seone, officer In chargo of the system with headquarters in Seattle, says the Ketchikan Chron cle of recent date. In the same letter the sergeant Is Informed that In stead of using land cablcs. such as now used in the Ketchikan office, a regular ocean cable will be used. This probably will mean that pro vision will bo made to "cut In" Ket chikan at Petersburg, thereby hav ing Kctchikan work directly with Se A few months ago when Col. Seone was in Ketchikan, the matter of a direct cable from Seattle to Ketchikan was taken up with him. Cable engineers held It would be impracticable to bring the cable In south of this city because of the (hallow water and number of Ash ing vessels that are working In the waters. It was thought more ad visable to bring the cable In to Pet ersburg and the officer said he would so recommend. Thereby, In itcad of ?<>tng from Kctchikan t<>! Petersburg, (hence to Sitka ami thence to Seattle, messages will g<< lirert. thereby saving time and hance for error.
