Traffic Chart of Western Union, Anglo-American and Direct U. S. Cable
Busineaa, Snowing Capacity of the Cables and the Proportion Now Utilized.
Proposed Modification off
Existing Arrangements
A provisional modification of an
arrangement which has existed for
many years has been reached between
tho Western Union Telegraph Com
pany. The Anglo-American Cable
Company and the Direct U. S. Cable
Company, under which the cable sys
tems of these companies now worked
exclusively in business connection
with each other, but operated and
maintained separately, will be oper
ated in direct physical connection
with each other and with the Western
Union land system.
- Two objects are to be attained by
this arrangement:
First, more efficient and economi
cal operation.
Second, the introduction of new
forms of service to the advantage of
the public.
The Trans-Atlantic Cable
Situation and Competition
The trans -Atlantic cable situation
Is as follows :
The Mackay group of Boven ca
bles, including the German cables,
owned by or worked in physical con
nection with the telegraph lines of
that company form one system.
The French cabled comprise an in
dependent system, using both the
Western Union anu the Mackay land
lines for their United States connec
tion. In competition with these is the
Western Union group of cable., eight
in all, owned by three separate com
panies, two of which are British
companies owning five of the eight
Two only of the Britiih owned
cablen terminate in the United States
and alt of them are entirely depen
dent on the Western Union for their
connection with any telegraph system,
or for their reaching any centre of
business, and are now worked exclu
sively, so far as business is concerned,
with the Western Union.
Efficiency Increased,
Waste Prevented
The proposed arrangement between
the Western Union, the Anglo-American
and the Direct U. S. companies
will bring the eight cables of the three
companies under one operating con
trol. The consequent increase in
effectiveness and economy will place
the Western Union in a position to
offer certain advantages in- cable
service not now enjoyed by the public.
The other way open to enable
the Western Union to make such im
provements and introduce such new
services as it 'proposes to do, would
be to lay new cables. This would
seem to vbe the height of folly.
Duplication of the existing trans -Atlantic
cable facilities at a cost of
many millions, when there are more
than ample facilities for all business,
would put an unnecessary financial
burden upon an already fully burdened
business and would probably postpone
the reduction of rates or introduction
of new servi-ea.
Limited Business Hours
and Idle Facilities
As at present carried on, the trans
Atlantic cable business is practically
all flash service, i. e. instantaneous,
Owing to the difference in time, there
are only a few business hours of the
day common to both sides and during
these hours at least 75;? of the cable
business is done. This is demon
strated by the accompanying chart.
In the interests of international
business nothing should be done to
interfere in any way with the so-called
flash or instantaneous service, and
the lines should be kept clear to ac
commodate such messages during the
few !.usineas hours common to both
countries; but to continue to confine
the cables to this class of service, as
at present, will utilize only about 25
of the existing capacity of millions of
property and places on that limited
service all the capital, maintenance
and operating charges.
The limited time and the character
of the business, if best results arc to
be obtained, demand direct cable cir
cuits between principal centres of tho
two sidea of the Atlantic, as well aa
special circuits devoid d to special
Efficient Service Requires
Sufficient Facilities
To meet these requirements It la
essential not only that there be at all
times sufficient cable, under
one control, but that they should bo
operated interchangeably with each
other and in close physical connec
tion with land lines as one system.
Ample spare facilities are necessary
to provide against the very frequent
cable interrupt ions.
Neither the Western Union nor any
one of the companies of the Western
Union group has.independentlyof tho
others, facilities enough to handle
the business which at times any ono
company might be called upon to tako
cure of, because of aonvj particular
rush of business, or because of some
cable interruption. Nor could any one
company furnish all the direct circuit!
neccsHnry for eflicient service, al
though the combined facilities of
these companies are ample if they
could be used supplementary to each
other and interchangeably.
As it is, each company operates Hi
own cables through separate and dis
tinct offices and under separate and
distinct management. All interchange
of business is by actual transfer of tho
business from one company to the
other, with the consequent delay and
interruption of a service in which
seconds are valuable.
Daily and Week-end ..
Cable Letters
So soon as the proposed arrange
ment goes into effect, the We at mm
Union purposes, with the consent of
the Britiah Poat Office Department,
to introduce at teaat two new features
or services in addition to the proposed
deferred rate fA
and the
at a very tow rate for cable service
only. This will enable the public to
atwe the six to eight days consumed in
the trans-Atlantic passage of mails.
Monopoly of Cable
Business Impossible
There Is no cable monopoly pos
sible. The three systems tho
Wevern Union, the French and tho
Mackay will continue to exist.
The Mackay Companies is a hold
ing organization with no physical
property, but exercising through stock
ownership, lease or contract, operat
ing control of various companies
owning land lines and cables which
make upthe Mackay System. Through
this control all the various properties
are operated as one system to great
advantage in service over what could
be given by these same companies
if operated separately.
The French cables form another
The Western Union System, under
the proposed arrangement for one
operating control over the present
Bcgn gated units, will be enabled to
make two distinct advances in the
trans-Atlantic cable business:
1 BETTER SERVICE. Thiswillbe
insuisd by more efficient and econom
ical working resulting from single
direction over the operations of both
cable 1 and land lines.
greater part of. the cable capacity has
been and is now unutilized. It will
continue to lie dormant and unutilized
under existing conditions and tradi
tions. The Western Union purposes
to make these wasted facilities usefut
to the public by means of new kinds
of cable service.
In addition, the Western Union In
tends to nationalize its land lines by
opening them to all trans-Atlantic
cable companies.
