The great (able and telegr.-ih war is ended. And with it c-onies the collapse also of the fifi!ts to prevent radio from becoming :i vital competitor to the cable in trans atlantic communication. Lower rates fi.r messages between the United States and many foreign countries are inevi table. The story of the fight which involved the Wilson and Harding administration us well as the governments of South American countries is a dramatic one, mbracing at one time the use of the I'nited States navy to prevent the land ing of a cable at Miami. Florida, the insistent attitude of the United States government that t lie aJl-Ameriean t able Co.. ;in American concern, should not be injured by the monopoly possessed by a I'.ritish cable company in Brazil, and. finally, the making of an exclusive agree ment between the Postal Telegraph Co.. whereby the American Radio corpora tion is at last assured of thousands of teh-graph offices throughout the United Slates where messages can be collected for radio transmission. The essentials in the war just brought to an end are these : (ll The Western Union Telegraph Co. has been granted a permanent li cense for the landing of its cable at Miami, Florida, which connects at P.ar hadoes with the 1 iritish-ownM com pany's cable from I5rax.il. The permit was granted as soon ns the Itrazuian government cance!lel the monopoly pos sessed by the I'.ritish company so that now the Ail-American Cable Co. can land cables anywhere along the coast of Urazil and carry them from point to pent. Up to this time the All-Ameri-.n Co. has had to stretch a separate eaH" from Argentine to two separate points in Itrail because the landing of e;ihles from one P.razilian port to an other was exclusively the privilege of tie British company. t. AH Moiioxlies ;icn I p. t'J ) The All-Amcrican Co. renounced its monopolies n the west coast of South America so the "Western Union and its I'.ritish ally in the cable busi ness can now encircle South America. Ail monopolies are given up by every leily concerned. This action was tle result of the influence of the department f state.

After years of negotia tion during which it seemed as if th AYestern Union would make an agrea ii i c iit with the All-Amerieau ('able Co. to forward messages to South America originating in this country through an American imtr.o of a Itiitish concern, the Postal Telegraph Co. has been pre vailed upon to act as the American col lecting medium. This means that mes sages from the United States filed at any Postal Telegraph office will go direct to S'uth American points without passing through the hands of any Pritish company. IJdter Service to South America. (I) 'i ne addition of the Miami cable means improved communication to South America because' it has been all too ob vious in the last two years that the All American Cable Co. couldn't handle all tt'e business. The direct line from Florida to the I.arbadoes and T5ra7.il will mean rjuick service to Brazil and the Western Union is also making ar rangements to reach points on the west const of South America, though at pres et): the All America has more cable mileage on the West Coast. (fit The decision of the Postal Tele graph Co. to act for the American Iiadio corporation in the same collecting ca p.'citv that it is to art for the All America Cable Co.. is a significant step toivard i'i the development of world neii-minication. 1'or one reason or an other, heretofore, the Western Union iias declined to permit the senders of nossnges at interior points in the United Sines to mark a message for Kurope via radio. The Western Union has ac cepted messages from shore to ship but a .t between the I'nited States and (Jreat Piitain. for example. if the sender marked it "via radio."' The general suppof itiou has been that the Western U n i n which lias cable lines of its own acnes tin Atlantic, wasn't going to compete with itself by accepting message-, for Ilai'iipp that would be trans mitted acres, the Atlantic by radio and tlois be xbijged to give a portion of the sender's fee to the radio company. Iiadh rates, furthermore, are cheaper it' many instances than cable so it was felt that to furnish the American Radio toj-poration with a means of collecting i os --aces throughout the United States bv giving them the advantage of the thoii-auds of Western Union offices mi-'lit be an unwise business move. K.-'d'o Will Relieve Congestion. ('''Hence II. Mackay. president of the Postal Teh-graph, who has a cable com pany which also has ;-b!es of its own. took a different view, however, of the transatlantic business. He felt that if ra- il-o c-mld be used for many messages it woul l relieve the congestion and make i at ie communication quicker and thus tempt business men to use the cables i . -re ttvuuentiv ami to oeuer auvanrag. It is a known fact that there is static erferenee with radio every now and then si ml while remarkable speed is made there me some serious delavs. Many message, however, are sent to Kurope v.l o n the semler is not anxious to mivo lelivcred at once and a delay of a few lours is not material. Radio will get nueh of this traffic, whereas for com munication at certain day liours when radio isn't as a rule as good as cable. the latter will reap the benefit. The Postal Telegraph Co's idea is that a cndiiicss to give the American Radio oi'poration a collecting telegraph agency -.ill stimulate business of all kinds with Kurope. both cable and radio, and will unoue.stionatily work to tne advantage f the cable lines of the Western I nion 1. .i I. ...i i. ii i as well as tne i ostai ior an caoies nave et-n congested in recent months and it an open secret that, the old pre-war itm.tion of. almost instantaneous com munication tor all messages liave never been restored. Another complication is the fact that the allies took two cables which oriei- nallv went to 'iermany by May of the Azores. American companies have been thwarted in their effort.-- to net cable licenses abroad and cable facilities are therefore not being built to meet the de mand. The addition of the radio for commercial use across the Atlantic comes at an opportune moment ami the predic tion is made in well-informed quarters that rates to Kurope must inevitably come down as a result of the new adjust ment. It is expected also that the ar rangements for wireless messages arriv ing at the Pacific coast to be sent through the Postal land lines and vice versa will follow, as a "matter of course, the agreements just made for transatlan tic business.
