ASTORIA, OREGON, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, J 887.
The Important Work of Keeping Open
The telegraphic lineman is an
important individual in a humble
way. The "Western Union com
pany employ between 3,000 and
4,000 throughout the country,
and during the busiest season fre
quently have as many as 5,000 at
work. Of this number about 150
are reserved for New York City
work alone. There are the ex
perts of the profession, for the vast
labyrinth of wires in that city re
quire an experienced man to
thread them. Generally a lineman
begins a groundman as the as
sistant is called and works his
way up gradually, making small
and unimportant repairs at first.
He must learn to climb with
spikes, and keep a clear head at i
The pay of linemen is not large,
considering the difficulties and
dangers of their work. The most
skilled does not average over $65
or $70 dollars a month, while men
employed in rural districts receive
on an average from $-10 to $50.
The chief dangers are from de
cayed poles, broken cross-bars,
and electric light wires, the latter
being of course the most dreaded.
Although these are supposed to be
covered with a substance which is
a non-conductor of electricity,
fatal experience has shown that
this substance is susceptible to at
mospheric action and becomes
worn off in places.
How do linemen know which
wire is the one in need of repair
when there are 50 or 60 wires
upon a pole? is a question fre
quently asked. The Western
Union has several large folios in
its office containing exact descrip
tions of every wire, with diagrams
of the poles upon which they run.
Every lineman has a small book
containing diagrams of the pohs
and wires in his district copied from
the folios in the Western Union
office. When a break occurs or a
wire needs repairing he has only
to follow it, book in hand, until
he reaches the pole nearest to the
place where repairing is necessary.
Another question is, how are the
damaged portions of a wire lo
cated to certain districts? Sim
ply by telegraphing from sti:m
to station. If a break occurs it:
the line running to Albany, the
nearest station is signaled, and if
all is right answers the signal, re
peating the oparation until a sec
tion is reached where no answer
is received. This locates the
break. When a storm sweeps
over a certain portion of the coun
try it is often necessary to bring
all the linemen for hundreds of
miles around to the scene of de
struction. Often they are brought
from distant states in order that
the necessary repairs may be
made with all possible expedition.
During the winter months a
lineman's life is one of great hard
ship. He is often required to
climb poles covered with ice and
to handle wires that stick to his
hands. When the wires are re
ported down in the northwestern
states large gangs are dispatched
to make repairs, for no man could
work for more than half an hour
on top of a telegraph pole with a
blizzard blowing about his ears.
Gangs of workmen accompany
them to dig out'the fallen poles,
which are often covered with
snow. It is no unusual occurence
to hear that simple statement,
"The wires are down;" but the
wonder is that they are put in or
der pgain in such an incredibly

Incendiaries in Morrow Oounty.
Arlington, Or., Sept. 23. At
the time of the Lexingron, Mor
row county, fire it was asserted
that it must have originated
through incendianism, and this
supposition is now greatly
strengthened. A man named
Bradley was examined at Heppner
on Saturday, and held in the sum
of $2,000 for the crime of incen
diarism. It seems that a little
girl named Whitsome overheard
a conversation between Bradley
and another man, in which he
said "We laid Lexington low, and
next we'll lay out Heppner," etc.
It was through this that the man
was apprehended, together with
other circumstances which led to
his arrest and examination. Brad
ley is a carpenter who lives in
Lexington, and has the reputa
tion of being a bad man.
Mrs. Bradley turned state's evi
dence and gave the following ac ac
eount: The crime was committed
by Joe Cannon and Bradley, with
the knowledge of herself. They
made a roll of cotton and saturated
it with coal oil. This was put
through a knot hole, into the hay
and a string used as a fuse, being
lighted from the outside. Can
non was arrested last night, and
is in the Heppner jail. The
woman gave the thing away in the
hope that she would save her husband.
