(Special) More than 15,000,000 miles of single wire are used by the people of the United States in communicating with each other over the various telephone and telegraph systems. Of this number, 12,999,369 miles are operated by the telephone systems and 2,072,951 miles are operated by the telephone systems and 2,072,951 miles by the telegraph companies. This length of Ingle wire would encircle the earth at the equator more than 600 times. These and many other facts of in terest to the public, as well as to sta tisticians and scientists, are to be found in the advance proof pages of United States census bulletin 102, on the general subject of telegraph sys tems in the United States in 1907, prepared by William M. Steuart, chief statistical) for manufactures, under the direction of United States Census Director 13. Dana Durand. It will come from the press of the gov ernment printing office within a week. Enormous Development. Over tho telegraph wires In 1907 there were flashed 36 8.4 70,509 mes sages, of which 5,869,317 were cable grams. Going Into comparisons between the statistics of the 25 commercial land lines nnd ocean cable telegraph sys tems and of the telephone systems, the bulletin refers to the fact that the first telegraph line In the United States was opened for business in 1SH, and 32 years later the tele phone was introduced. At the 1880 Ci USUI the telephone companies re , brti I S'.as miles of wire, about one ninth of the mileage of the telegraph companies. In 1902 the telephone mileage Of wire was almost four times as great as that used for telegraph purposes. In 1907 t lie telephone mile age was eight times as great as the telegraph. Commercial Telegraphs. Treuting of the commercial tele graphs and ocean cable systems, tho bulletin points out that in 18S0 there were 77 companies; in 1902, 25; and in 1907, 25; und it explains that the noticeable decrease since 1880 in the number of seperate companies is duo to numerous consolidations of former ly competing companies. The do- right to vote. Dr. Buchtel came here to preach In Calvary Methodlet Epis copal church. Continuing, the for mer governor said: "Chivalry was the motive that prompted the granting of the equal franchise In Colorado, and women legislators have been suffered to put forth their claims out of deference to their sex. There have beeti few who did not demand the most ab surd and unreasonable laws. The only trouble about the women legis lators Is that they will not listen to argument no woman will. Logic does not appeal to them."

There Is a decided trend toward skirts more full at the (Ml while still retaining the close-fit about the hips.

Municipal Judge F. S. Bennett in court today ruled that par ents had a perfect right to punish and discipline their children, even If the latter were over age, says the Journal. A slap In the fact caused the ruling handed down, it came in the case of EL J. Lueder of 101 Commercial street, accused of assault and battery on the person of his 20-year-oia daughter, Clara. "She Is living with you," the court to 1 Lueder, "and sue is under your Un ction. I believe you have a right to punish her." Lueder explained to the court that his daughter was in a habit of going with her different beans and return ing late, keeping himself and wife awake. Friday night he said she re turned with her swain some time after 11 o'clock and that their prattling kept him awake. Being a hard work ing man and needing rest, he remon strated with the girl. Deceiving a harp answer, he slapped her. The decision Is more important than U appears on its face. Heretofore a number of children have had their parents arrested for assault and bat- erv and In practically every case the action hase Men uismissea. nere fter parents may punish their chil- ren. so long as the punishment is not cruel or Inhuman. ROCKEFELLER PRAISED AT IRRIGATION CONGRESS Spokane. John D. Rockefeller as a philanthropist 'and as an example for the nation to copy was held up to the kindly consideration of the National Irrigation Congress yesterday after noon with the advice that the life of the oil magnate be studied as a busi ness ideal. The newest exponent of Rockefeller was Dr. W. J. McGee, secretary of the Inland Waterways Commission or Washington, D. C. Dr. McGee frankly said he admired John D. Rockefeller. He said thoug'n much sneered at the president of the Standard Oil irf a man among millions and yet though billionaire he be there It no reason why a million other men cannot be as successful as he. Dr. McGee was speaking of water as a thing which in value to the hu man race In proportion to all other necessaries Is as 100 to one. He urg ed the conservation of water on three particulars power, Irrigation and transportation. "And yet," he said, "with water thus valuable and necessary to the hu man race John D. Rockefeller charges less for a gallon of oil after It has passed through many processes than spring water concern does for a gal Ion of mineral water which has not been treated In any way. "I regard Mr. Rockefeller as at once a generous public benefactor and a wise and careful business man. He has had all the opportunity in the world to extract an exhorbitant toll from the public and yet he charges lest for oil than is paid every day for com mon water. "Frankly I admire the man and I say that the United States government could do no better than profit by the example of a business man so astute and who so well conserves natural re cources." However this portion of Dr. McGee's speech did not elicit the applause which followed his address In general concerning the conservation of natu ral energy.

The statement is made that the use of telephones by railroads exclu sively in connection with the opera tion of the roads has increased rap Idly since 1902. Although the electric intei urban roads early recognized the advantages of the telephone for dis patching purposes the larger steam roads have been disinclined to substi tute the telegraph for the long-established telegraph, the general objec tion being that of the liability to mistakes through the similarity In sound of different words when trans mitted by telephone. Wireless Systems. The bulletin point! out that It gives the first statistics for the commercial wireless systems already established, and states that they were operaed at a loss of $47,62S in 1907. There were six commercial wireless telegraph systems In 1907, operating 122 tower stations, located at most of the large ports of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, he gulf of Mexico, tho great lakes and In Hawaii. They transmitted 163.617 messages. Their authorized capitalization consisted of stock of a par value of $39,460,000 or which $32,726,242 was the value of the outstanding issue. On the subject of electric fire alarms It Is shown that 90.5 per cent of the cities with a population of nt least 10000 in 1900 were equipped with them. It appears that for 1907 there were 120,719 fire alarms re ceived. Concerning police patrol signaling the bulletin states that there were 41.961.650 ealls. Another part of the report credits the weather bureau with supplying 2.141,151 addresses with daily forecasts.
