Associated Press rorrpoadeat
oases !.ool Maaager for Postal
Telegraph Coaspaay. '
Edward J. Nally, general superintendent
of Western division of the Postal Tele-
grsph company, Tuesday announced the
appointment of Edwin U Huntley, as
manager of the Omaha and South Omaha
office of that company, which duties he
will assume about December IS, succeeding
C. O. Fuller, who. has msnsged the com
pany's business here for the last twelve
Mr. Huntley liss been the local represen.
tatlve of the Associated Press for the
last fits years. He came to Omaha thirteen
years ago. accepting a position as telegraph
operator for the Postal company. He was
soon given the Vnlted Press wire, and
later represented that Institution In Omaha
for four years. When the Vnlted Press
went out of bus.ness - he was given em
ployment by the Associated Press as an
operator holding that position for two
years, when he was placed In. charge of
the business on the establishment of an
Office In the Board of Trade building in
this city. '
f Although most of his work for the last
five years has been with the newspapers,
he has had opportunity also to continue
his Identity with the 'telegraph business,
And goes to his nev "!d with a good
knowledge of the ;' reo,ulremehts of his
position. '
It Is a remarkable coincidence that Mr.
Huntley now takes the management of an
Institution which gave him employment
In a -very minor, capacity 1 when he came
to Omaha. , The growth of the Postal
since 'that time, ' however, has1 kept pace
with general progress, and has Increased
Its trunk lines circuits out of Omaha from
seven to thirty, having added materially
to Its connections In Nebraska and western
Iowa, and completed the construction of
five wires from Omaha to the Pacific coast.
These latter lines have added greatly td.the
facilities of the company, and are operated
partly In connection with the Oriental
cablea. i .
4 Omaha has become the Gate City" In
reality, so far the business of the Postal
Is concerned, and a number of new pro
jects Is In a fair way for completion which
will add materially to the Importance of
tho local office of that company. .
Mr, Huntley was unable to say who his
successor will be, but, said he probably
would come from the ranks of the Asso
ciated. .Press.
