RANGE OF TALK EXTENDING
Improvement in Teltphon Practioe to

UTkr by Which the "Deca?" of (he
Mriuit la Transmission la,
Lessened and Its Life
NEW YORK. Jan. 2.-Not the least
immf the achievements of 1906 In the in
dustrial world la the lone step taken
toward making transcontinental telephony
an accomplished fact. Thirty years ago
people scoffed when Alexander OraJiam
hell told them that by means of the tele
phone they could talk from one end of
their town to the other. Today ws talk
under rivers and harbors, over the highest
mountain tops, from the lowest recessos
of the deepest mines, through snow-drtf ted
wildernesses and across sun-baked deserts.
The work done In the last year in hasten
ing the day when New York can talk with
Ban Francisco has been that of develop
ment rather than that Involved In the malt
Uig of spectacular discoveries. In bringing
about present-day conditions, under which
a man can talk by telephone more than
Cleanses and beautifies the
teeth and purifies the breath.
TTsed by people of refinement
or over a quarter of a century.
Convenient for tourists.
m'AlttD by ,
half way across the continent, there has
been a steady succession of improvements
In tha telephone art, many of which have
received little attention from the telephone
In its early days the telephone used the
same sort of Iron wire that the telegraph
employs and the circuit was completed
through the ground. This works very well
for short distances, but the transmission
of every modulation of the voice is a much
more delicate matter than transmitting the
taps of a telegraph key. The first step,
then, toward extending the distance over
which mesages could be sent by telephone
was the Invention of a procexa of hardening
copper wire so that it would not stretch
from its own weight when strung from pole
to pole. And it Is an interesting fact that
Thomas B. Pooltttle, who invented the
method of doing this and thereby made
possible the use of copper conductors In
all electrical industries, la still an active
member of the engineering force of tl)e
Bell system, which has devised practically
every Improvement In telephone apparatus
and equipment since Dr. Bell's first funda
Limit of Conversation.
The first copper telephone wire was about
the alxe of the Iron telegraph wire it re
placed. With Improved "long distance"
Instruments, such as are now in general
use for all kinda of service, conversations
can be conducted over wire of this sixe for
about ISO miles with what the engineers
call "standard transmission." 3y Increas
ing the else of the copper strands on their
long distance lines, the Bell engineers have
more than doubled the early limits of sue-,
It might seem if all that was necessary
would be to keep on increasing the slse of
the wire indefinitely and thus extend the
range of talking. Even were it not for
scientific difficulties, the cost of the metal
alone, at Its present high price, for much
heavier conductors than they now used
would be practically prohibitive. Neither can
transmission over greater distance be
secured by meana of more sensitive ap
paratus, for if the telephone Instrument
were made more sensitive than It la, it
would become so microphonic, a It Is
called, that noises that could reach the
fllaphragm would cause such a Jumble
of sound that the word of a telephone
message could not be understood.
Bo the problem before the engineer haa
been to find a way to prevent the telephone
current from "decaying" during the Jour-

ney of a message over the lines. That la,
the engineers have sought means to
counterteract the Inevitable loss of ef
ficiency In the current and to keep It as
near as possible at Its orglnal strength.
Two methods of doing this have been tried.
Separately they have worked out well; but
aa yet they have not been applied oxnmer
clally to the same line.
Devices to Prevent "Decay."
The two devices that promise so much
for the extension of the range of long
distance talking are the loadln coll and
the repeater. Though the ends they ac
complish are, to a certain extent, the same,
the principles on which they work are en
tirely different. When the electrical cur
rent from the transmitter of one telephone
starts out on Its Journey to the receiver
of another telephone a thousand miles
away, say, It loses strength very fast, sink
ing away by degrees until finally It becomes
too weak to reproduce vibrations distinctly.
The loading coll, which was Invented by
Prof. Michael I. Pupln of Columbia uni
versity, acts as a sort of stimulant. It
consists of an Iron core upon which Is wind
ing upon winding of fine wire through
which the talking current Is passed in such
a way that it Is strengthened against the
decaying processes and maintained at a
level high enough to give satisfactory
transmission. These colls are attached to
a Una two, four or may be eight miles
apart, and their use approximately doubles
the range of the telephone.
The repeater, which Is a later Invention,
produced by one of the Bell engineers,
operates very differently. As Its name sig
nifies, it actually repeats the message,
which, coming through a receiver, repro
duces Itself automatically on a transmitter.
This allows of putting new current Into
the line. Just as the original current Is In
troduced at the transmitter Of the sub
scriber's telephone. The result Is practi
cally to start the message all over again
with a fresh lease of life, though naturally
the force that carries It cannot be made
quite as good as new. A repeater In the
middle of a long distance circuit extends
the range of talking about 60 per cent.
Ideal "oB4ltloas of Traaamlasloa.
While these remarkable strides Id ad
vance have been made, there have been
other Influences at work which tend to
delay rather than hasten the extension of
long distance service. The Ideal transmis
sion would be obtained over line of heavy
copper wire strung upon poles. In practice,
howsver, the long distance) lines must be
run in and out of switchboards along the
way, and here and there the messages
must leave the poles to travel for some dis
tance under ground. The loss of efficiency
In what are called the substation loops
that Is to say, the lines between the cen
tral offices and the subscribers' telephones
reduces the distance of possible transmis
sion a full third. This Is because of the
resistance offered to the passage of the
current by apparatus and by the small
wires that have been used in underground
cables and In the wiring of buildings, and
so on. When a telephone message passes
through a switching station, either a regu
lar central office or one of the long distance
stations located outside of large cities, the
effect on the current may be as great,
under some conditions, as would be pro
duced by adding 160 miles of line.
In putting wires underground It Is neces
sary to get them Into as small compass as
possible. Crowding the wires together In
this way greatly Increases what electrl-

clans call "capacity," thereby cutting down
the limits of transmission. As a matter
of fact, you can talk about thirty times
as far over an open overhead wire of the
size adopted as standard by the Bell sys
tem as you can through the ordinary size
of underground cable, or overhead cable,
for that matter, for It Is all the same
thing. In local traffic around a city this
Is not so Important; but In long distance
traffic It Is a very serious consideration.
Example In Practice.
For Instance, a man in New Tork calls
up a man In Chicago. The distance be
tween the two cities, as the Bell lines go.
Is 932 miles Where the wires pass directly
froiu one city to the other and are not
"cut in" at way stations, very good trans
mission can be secured. The last year or
two It has become commercially possible
to have a few through circuits of this
sort; the other circuits, In order to be
economically operated, munt be used for
way traffic between Intermediate cities
when through traffic dors not demand
them. The central offices at either end
and the switching stations in between add
what amounts to from 200 to 400 miles to
the actual mileage of the cross-country
Even so, teliphony has been perfected
to a point where these obstacles would be
satisfactorily overcome. But there may be
from two to ten miles of underground at
the New Yorker's end of the line and from
three to twelve miles more of underground
at the Chlcagoan'a end. Together these
sections of underground add, roughly, tha
equivalent of another 400 miles. Further
more, a majority of business calls are be
tween private bank exchange subscribers.
The private switchboard, while very con
venient. Is often the case of further losses
in transmission due very largely to the
practice In many offices of requiring the
person who operates It to "stay In on the
line" to see that everything goes smoothly
for the talkers. When an operator la thus
kept In on a connection at each end of the
line, the loss Is approximately equal to
that of 300 miles of open wire. So while
you are talking between places actually
less than a thousand miles apart, the tele
phone system must have as great efficiency
as would be required to communicate
nearly 0 miles of your telephone and that
of the man you converse with were at
tached directly to the ends of open wires.
Barles Wires Make Troeble.
The complications Introduced by the
necessity of burying the wires In many
places made it necessary to establish,
switching stations on the long distance cir
cuits whenever they passed near large
cities. Thus messages may be turned Into
the city itself or may be carried on with
out the loss of power that would result
from their passing througn a lot si cable
construction. As more places require tele
phone wires burled In cables the efforts of
the engineers to extend the distance over
which they can talk are made more and
more difficult. To a less extent, perhaps,
but none the less to a very apreclable de
gree, .the Interference of foliage and tree
limbs Is a serious obstruction to long dis
tance talking. In many places the Bell
engineers buy private rlghts-ofway and cut
down trees on both sides of the line, which
protects the wires from interference and
lessens the risk of their being broken down
In storms. But this cannot be done every
where, and with the restrictions that are
placed on trimming trees on highways. It
Is Impracticable to avoid leakage from this
- During the last twelve months the last
gap In the Bell system was filled In, so that
now there are wires that can be conected
Into one continuous line from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. Already In the laboratories
In Boston conversations have been held by
experts over artificial circuits representing
more than 3,000 miles of ideal Una. How
long It will be before the Ideal can be
nearly enough approached In the actual
working plan to make transcontinental con
versations a practical success no one cart
predict with any certainty.
