"New Telegraph Circuit to Alaska"
Announced 07 August 1895
JW Mackay will leave on the steamer Queen tomorrow morning for Alaska. Mr Mackay will be accompanied by CR Hosmer, General Manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway Telegraph Company. It is believed their visit north has something to do with the early construction of a telegraph circuit from Vancouver, British Columbia to Alaska's interior.
