"Telegraph Circuit Crosses the 49th Parallel"
The Canadian Pacific Railway's telegraph circuit is now completed to the boundary at Sumas, Washington. One circuit is in operation from Seattle Washington to the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr JG Blake, Manager of the United States Postal Telegraph in Seattle, is to meet Mr James Wilson, Superintendent of the Pacific Division of the Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company. They are to complete previous arrangements for connection between CP Telegraphs and the Postal system. The Postal Telegraph has three wires on this line and another two wires on the old highway line.
