tlio Atlantic had reached over Its
migh'y splendor and shaken hands
with the poacerul rocino 'l ho
conversations nccuircd about four
o'clock eastom time, and ono o'clock
San Francisco time.
President Wilson was tho firs'
person not ernnro'ed wl'li tho tele
phone company to enjoy the privl
eg of hearing a hiiiimu voico over
3,400 miles of wire. Ho stopped to
tho telephono and, planing the re

clear and impressive manner, to
President Moore of tlio Panama
and Pac, lie, Exposition: "It up
peals to the imagination to speak
across the continent. It is a line
omen for the exposition Mint the
fiwt thing it has doneh to send its
voice from sea to sea, I congratu
late you on tne tine prospects lor a

responded: "Wo aro looking for

you will le well ploasud with what
wo Iiutq dono I r.84uro you, Mr.
President that you will never receive
a welcome that will be moro cordial
or more enthusiastic "
