About the year 1S54 Mr. Field
was solicited to invest capital in a
project for tho establish merit of sub
marine connection between New
foundland and the North American
-O continent. it was while investigat
ing this matter that he conceived
O the project for a tcIeKranhlc cable
under the Atlantic to connect Amer
ica with Europe.
With Peter Cooper, Moses Taylor
and other noted capitalists of that
day Mr. Field organized and char
tered the New York, Newfoundland
& London Telegraph company. For
thirteen years he devoted his entire
time to the project, making many
trips to Eprope, obtaining the nee
essary concessions, soliciting addi
tional capital, and superintending
the manufacture of the cable.
In 1858 Mr. Field and bis associ
ates saw the reward of their cour
age and faith. In August of that
year the first cable was completed
from Trinity Bay. Newfoundland, to
alencia, Ireland. This cable, laid
after four failures, was 2500 miles
long, weighed a ton to the mile and
the cost of the project was $1,834,
600. The line was opened with an
exchange of greetings between
Queen Victoria and President Buch
anan. For six weeks messages were
sent between America and Europe,
bu tthey were of an experimental na
ture, and the cable was never opened
to the public. At the end of six
weeks the cable broke down utterly.
Seven years passed before thei
work was resumed and tho famous
Great Eastern made its memorable
voyage. The cable laid that time
parted after a single trial ,and then
another year elapsed. The broken
ends were picked up and spliced and
from that day to this cable com-
imunication under the Atlantic has
not ceased. There are now nearly
'a score of cables between America
,and Europe, and many more under
other oceans more than 230,000
miles of ocean cablo in all.
In recognition of his eminent ser
vices tlje Congress of tho United
States voted Mr. Field a gold medal
anu tho thanks of the nation. Great
Britain and other nations likewise
bestowed honors unon him. Great
universities conferred honorary de
grees upon him and he was elected
to fellowship in tho most prominent
learned societies of America and Europe.
More than a Dinner
Thursday, November 27th
IT ought to be something more than a date and a dinner
being thankful is a state of mind; more than words or
acts. You may go to church; you may stay at home; you
may seek recreation or sport; the observance of the day
varies with the observer.
But whatever you do on that day, you can be thankful.
There are many advantages you enjoy which are grounds
for gratitude. You can at least go as far as the old farmer,
who said he was going to "Thank God things ain't no
wuss'n they be."
But if a man's really thankful; if he's in tho right "state of mind,"
he tries to do what he can do to make things' "bettor'n they be."
We can all do that.
