When It was first proposed to lay a cable from Dover to Calais it was denounced as a "mad freak," a "gigan tic swindle." So little was known about It that when a fisherman hauled up the line with his trawl he thought It a new species of seaweed. Some thought the signals were to be given by pulling on the wire like a doorbell, so they urgued the ocean bed was too rough and uneven for that. While some objected that It would kill all the fish, others believed that fish would gn'.c off the Insulating gutta perclia covering and put the line out of business. Lieutenant Maury, a marine, not a cable expert, ventured to express the opinion that there never would be a time calm enough, the sea smooth enough and wire long enough or a ship big enough to lay an Atlan tic cable. When, after a few weeks of operation, the first Atlantic cable gave out, some declared that it never had worked and no messages over had been sent, and some doubted if It ever had been laid.
