M. Seely last even- pg. A number of invited friends were present. The conditions were not favorable last night, so there were no manifestations. This evening it is loped there will be harmonious rela- ,ions between the worldly surroundings and the ethereal universe, so that the spirits can manifest themselves unto those gathered in the dark room. —Mr. O. A. Oliver, on account of ill I jwa Telephone Union of which the S:erllng exchange is a part, Mr. A. F. C-itter, of pavenport, was here yester- diy to look over the ground to sto what can be done. He thinks as his company has already spent considerable money here in placing the exchange in good condition, that they should not be caused to make a great outlay. He thinks the difficulty can be obviated by the electric light company carrying its wires abov« the telephone wires for the four blocks above mentioned TO do this, the electric light poles will have to be spliced. The expense will not be much, and if the city council directs that to be done, it will probably be at the expense of the telephone company. The telephone managers are afraid their wires will be afflicted from another source besides the electric lights— the electric street railwaj wires. There wil 1 be 11 ttle_d.anger of the rail way wires coming in contact with the telephone wires, for the latter will be kept out of the way. The danger anticipated Is from electrical induction, that is, the electrical current from the street car wires is expected to render powerless the telephone wires which are in the vicinity. This occurred in Davenport, where an electric street railway was recently built, and underground insulating wires had to be connected with each telephone wire to protect it against the railway wires.
