His Scheme to G:ve the Country
New York, Feb. 7. In an in
terview with a correspondent
to day Jay Gould said: "The ob
ject of the telegraph consolidation
was to carry ou a long cherished
plan of developing in the United
States an efficient system of cheap
telegraphing on a great scale, both
by sea and by land. When 1 was
in Europe in 187JJ I was struck by
seeing how much more freely the
telegraph was used in ordinary
private business than in this coun
try. This is especially true of
Switzerland. Of course the dis
tances to be covered are so enor
mous, ami the pouiation so sparse,
that we cannot for some time to
come expect to see the work of
covering the whole country with
a telegraphic system dime as
cheaply here as m a little country
like Switzerland, but 1 am ture
that under one system, without
conflicting interests to took after,
and with the expense of only one
organization instead of three or
four are to be met, such economies!
can be introduced iuto AmerieRii
telegntpliv that rales to the press
! public e. bo .nuiudly d

impHirms; the flioioicy of the
"Do you think this will be the
result of the change?'
"Of course 1 do, for it will be
tlie policy awi purpose of the w
company to elTeot tins. 1 went
into it wMh this view, ami 1 cer
tainly will use my constant effort
and all my utiiucMce to wake the
olicy ami the urjose sicccSbful.
I am not surprised at the new
telegraphic jmijects, nor at the
aiolictiurio with which itierchattts
1 and buinOe men lrave looked at
te WMIMiitioM. abcmt which so
many stone, lutvc Im-cii set afloat.
If there had been any truth in
these stories, the exchanges would
have had very goal reason to sot
about organizing ijcw companies,
but when sensible people come, to
understand General Kckert'a prac
tical, comprehensive plans for the
future, whioii embraces the estab
lishing of direct special wires be
tween busiuus exchanges all over
the country and.putting them into
direct communication with each
other and with the great markets
of Europe, 1 think they will see
matters in a different light.
"The new company now has
under contract through a new
cable company organized at Al
bany, two cables between this
country and England, which two
cables are to be laid early the com
ing summer. Cables will also be
laid from Cuba, where they will
connect with our present system
to other West India islands, to
bra.il ami other harbors of South
America, as well as from San
Francisco to China, Japan, Ocean
ica and Australia, with a northern
line by way of Puget-sound to
Alaska and northern Asia, connect
ing at Kamschatka with the Rus
sian system, so that at no distant
day St. Petersburg will be in di
rect communication with New
York by way of Asia as well as
Europe, and England will reach
her Australian provinces through
New York by our American lines
cheaper and more expeditiously
than over English wires through "the
Red sea and by way of India.'.
"Then you contemplate a gener
al cable and telegraph system
around the world."
"Yes, certainly we do; ami we
contemplate such a system as an
Aim-nca system, of which New

Motion, which geographically be
longs to us, to be taken away from
us by England. While the rival
telegraph companies in this coun
try were fighting onoh other for
domestic business, tliey could
neither do domestic business on a
sound principle nor do anything
to compete with Great Britain
for the general telegraphic bnsi
uess of the world. Now we have
changed all this; how completely,
you may judge when I tell you
that since the consolidation $10,
000,000 have been subscribed to
carry our cable connections into
Salmon helltes, at retail, at War
ren & Eaton.
