The Bell telephones will be removed to-day
from all the orfices of the Interior Depart

will be replaced by those of the Western
Telephone Construction Company, whose
president, Mr. J. "E. Keelyn, is now in the
city to superintend the change.
Mr. Keelyn said last night that he has
been estimating the cost or establishing a
new tulcphone exchange in this city for
prominent business men here, and the plans
would be considered during his present visit.
His attention was called to statements
recently published in a city paper to the
effect that new construction was not
feasible. Ho said that he had read the
article in that paper, and also the edi

assumed in the latter.

"There is no question among patent at
torneys that the Berliner patcut will be
declared as or no effect in disturbing a
superior type of telephone instruments, if
a suit for infringment upon it is ever
brought, which I very much doubt."
Mr. Keelyn said that no doubt it was
attempted to discredit the efrorts that are
now made to cheapen telephone sen-ice in
Washington. He believes Trom business
relatioes with some of the proposed new
exchanges that they are bona fide concerns
and that the projectors are in earnest.
