TELEGRAPHS AND TELEPHONES.

SYSTEMS IN THE UNITED STATES.

[From the Census Bureau's Bulletin No. 102.]

The first telegraph line in the United States was opened for business in 1844, and thirty-two years later the telephone was introduced." At the census of 1880 the telegraph companies reported the operation of 291,213 miles of wire, as compared with 34.305 miles reported for the telephone companies. By the census of 1902 the amount of wire for the telegraph systems had increased to 1,318,350 miles and

that for the telephone systems to 4,900.451 miles. Thus in 1902 the mileage of wire devoted to the transmission of telephone messages was almost four times as great as that used for telegraph purposes. The extent of the systems in 1907 is shown in the following table:
