HELLO ! HELLO !
Changes to be Made in
i e * . - * ; ,
A New Invention tobelneerted
" " '
"in Subqnbs'rB Hpuses. _ _
" "ThTo'maha Electric company have
been. contemplating" for some time
past a radical changejn-the telephone
system of our ityr Omaha's exchange
was ihe tenth constructed in the
'United States and when the apparatus
were put in they were of the latest and
most approved designs. Since then ,
bowevor , a number of improvements
liavo been made tending to the greater
perfection of the system , and in order
to keep up with * the times , the com
pany have determined to take out all
the old signal bells and insert others
of a newer and later pattern.
The great trouble with 'tho old elec
tric bell has resulted from the Incon
stancy of the largo battery at the
central 6ffice-which supplied the cur *
rent to all , the magnets throughout
the system. At times the battery
would work well and the bells would
signal loud and clear when sounded ,
at other times it would prove weak ,
and great difficulty was experienced
In gettirg any sound at all. Besides
this , the battery of GOO cells required
constant attendance and frequent re
plenishing. To do away entirely with
the battery is now the aim of the
officers of the company.
They propose to take out all the old
bells from the houses aud exchange ,
and insert a new invention cslled ihe
Magneto bell. This instrument needs
no battery to work the bell hammer.
The electricity is generated by means
of a email crank which tbo sub
scriber turns as he presses the but
ton which calls up the central office.
Enough electricity is produced by the
little magnetic machine inside the box
to Tvprk a circuit fifty miles in length.
With this simple invention there can
be no excuse for the bells failing to respond
spend to the signalling button.
The company also proposes tolessen
the number of subscribers on a circuit
and to furnish separate wires to such
as desire them , charging a email extra
rental in such cases. They also in
tend to make a radical change in the
central office by means of which con
nection canto made more rapidly be
tween different circuits. To do this a
largo and now switch board is to be
placed in the ollico and. the old and
cumbrous shelves with innumerable
clanging bolls is to be removed.
Wheu these changes -are made the
Omaha exchange will be abreast of
the best in our country , and will
furnish as many conveniences as the
New York exchange itself. The num
ber otsubacribera.who. use telephones
in our city is now aboufSOO. When
the exchange started business only 100
names were on its books. Since that
time the Omaha "Electric company
have opened exchanges in Council
Bluffs and Lincoln , in the former of
which-villases they now have 100
subscribers , and in } he latter about

smelting works company , being ab
sent , no action was taken. Yesterday

sentativos of the company claiming

ty meu doing the work of the night
