Work Progressing in Fine Shape,
and When Completed Will Be
Better Equipped for Service.
From Wednenduy' Dally.
Tho work of improving the
plant of the Lincoln Telephone
and Telegraph company in this
cily is progressing in line shape,
und when il is completed it will
be one of the best equipped plants
in the state. The new multiple
switch-board that is being install
ed in the exchange will improve
the service-of the company 50 per
cent and ul Ihe same lime make
the work of the operators lighter.
On the old-style boards that were
formerly used the operators were
compelled to make connection
from different sections, while on
the new one all Ihe numbers ap
pear before Ihe operator ami it
is not necessary for I hem to leave
their seats lo make Hie connec
tions, greatly enhancing Ihe
rapidity of the service and making
it much more convenient for the
parly calling. The desk of the
head operator is lived so that she
can ne nine to tell now each
operator is working and keep per
fect track of the operators at all
limes. The long distance board is
equipped with a calculagraph
which keeps a perfect record of
Ihe lime used by Ihe patrons of
their calls. and is absolutely ac
curate and does away' w ith Ihe
necessity of Ihe operator making
out the ticket by hand and Ihe
necessity of listening lo the conversation.
The company will also in
troduce the common ballery sys
tem of telephones, that does away
wilh the magneto system requir
ing batteries in each telephone
and insures the subscribers
against the common trouble of
weak batteries, as the storage
bailers in the ofllec will be tested
each morning and kept in perfect
condition, which insures better
service. This will of course
necessitate the pulling in of new
telephones, and all the 'phones
now in use will be relegated lo
the scrap heap and new ones in
stalled. Under this system the
necessity of using a bell to call
central will be done away with.
The telephone company will also
reduce the number on a parly line
from four to two and install an
all metallic system that will over
come Ihe trouble so often had of
hearing- other parlies while tele
phoning. The cables conveying the wires
into Ihe exchange will be changed
to run into Ihe side of the build
ing from the alley, where the con
nections will be made with the
new switch-board. There will be
a double protection here against
lightning or other disturbances to
the line that will prevent the burn
ing out of the switch-board, there
being a large copper wire convey
ing Ihe current lo Ihe ground and
two guards on each wire lo slop
Ihe current from getting into the
switch-board. The wire chief has
a desk in this room where he can
lest out each line without being
forced to bother the operators and
Ihe switch-board and be able lo
secure much belter service for
Ihe subscribers. The work of in
stalling Ihe new equipment is in
charge of Mr. I'recse of Chicago,
who was sent here by the West
ern Klectrie company and is an
expert in his line, and the work
j is being done in splendid shape.
The company has ,jul recently
placed a new healing plant in
I heir building and has spared no
money to put the building in as
line shape as any in the state, and
wilh Ihe pleasant rest room just
completed makes il very con
venient and comfortable for the
operators, and the new arrange
ments will give Ihe patrons a
splendid telephone service that
cannot be beat anvwhere.
