JUXCTIOX IS ASKED.
Barbadoes and Florida, so as to link
it with Cuba irstead of the United

Counsel for the Western Union in
seeking the order contended that Pres

possess the power to prevent legally
splicing the cable on the high, seas.
Federal Judge Hard reserved decision.

"We believe that unthinking sub
