STORY OF THE TELEPHONE Its Beginnings in Burlington Told by Dr. W. S. Vincent. Letter from Htm Read at Talk: to Employes by Publicity 31 an mt Hotel Vermont Roof Garden Laat Year's Gain 341. Saturday night at the roof garden of the Hotel Vermont, Mr. Bamburgh of the publicity department of the New England Telephone and Telegraph company, talked to the employes of the local exchange about "Telling: the Public." The purpose of this talk wVs to inform the employes concerning the efforts now being made by the cora- I pany in developing a better understanding between them and the telephone-using public. "One thing about the opportunity and manner of telling the people about the service must be carefully defined," said Mr. Bamburg. "You must not think that there Is any advertising in these lectures, for we are not advertising telephone service nor toll service, nor any kind of equipment at all. The story which we are telling- In our lectures ' is full of simple and understandable descriptions of the telephone plant and the equipment of the central offices, and the wonderfully intricate construction of underground cables and overhead circuits." Dr. W. S. Vincent, who was to have been present to tell the employes about the first telephone system in Burlington, established by himself and Alvaro Adsit, In 1878, was confined to his home on account of illness. Manager Russell read a very interesting account of the beginning of the telephone business in Burlington, prepared by Dr. Vincent. Mr. Russell referred to Dr. Vincent as the pioneer telephone man of Vermont, and attributed the present high telephone development in Burlington, in the number of telephones to population, to the early start this city had in the telephone business, under the able management of Dr. Vincent and Mr. Adsit. Burlington was one of the first cities in the country to have a telephone exchange, and the first city in the three northern New England i States to have telephone communica- ! tion, which was between the City Drug j store and the Central Drug store, with telephones made by Dr. Vincent from descriptive drawings of the Bell patents, and used for the first time in June, 1S77, just a-year after Dr. Bell exhibited his telephone at the Centennial Exposition at Philadelphia in 1876. Mr. Russell stated tnat the net gain in telephones in the eventful year just closed, was 341, which was the great est gain since 1910. Even after deducting 124 telephones installed in the New Sherwood, the net gain for the year, was within four stations of the best year since 1910, and this in spite of the fact that no canvassing was done, and for six weeks last summer applications for service were indefinitely postponed, to conserve material and supplies. Nearly all other cities in the State showed a decrease in station gain over previous years. Therefore, it must be deducted that the general business in Burlington held up very well during 1917, as nothing is more indicative of the trend of business, in any city, than the loss or gain in its telephone subscribers. Dr. Vincent's letter, read by Manager Russell follows. THE BEGINNING OF THE TELEPHONE BUSINESS IN BURLINGTON. The first telephone that made its appearance in Burlington, and I may say in Vermont, was made by me in June, 1S77, from descriptive drawings in some magazine. The first telephone line constructed in this city was between my store, at 61 Church street, and the drug store, corner of Church and College streets, known as the Central Drug store. Sometime in the summer of 1877, a Mr. Bradley, son of Judge Bradley of Boston, came to Burlington for the purpose of securing some one to take the agency of the Bell telephone. Hearing of my baby lino, he called on me, ex-, plaining his mission. I told him I would assist him in securing someone to take up that work. We visited several people whom I thought qualified to serve him in this undertaking, but in every instance they declined, saying "it was simply a toy." After returning to my office he quietly opened his grip, taking therefrom some thousand feet of copper office wire, two hand telephones and some papers; then commenced writing. In a short time, he called me saying: "Sit down anl eien these papers, which, upon ex- aminatiorli provecl to be a contract be tween the BelI Telephone Co anc, ,f ' giving me the agency for the rental of telephones in Vermont. After signing, he turned over to me the two hand telephones and coil of wire; picked up his papers and left me. I never saw him afterwards. I replaced my own made telephones with the Bell. For the first year the only use made of the telephone was between residences of business men and their offices. In the early summer of 1878, when on my way to the railroad station, I met Mr. Alvaro Adsit at. the corner of College and Pine streets. During our conversation, the subject of the telephone came up, and he appeared very enthusiastic. We finally sat down upon the terrace, and after a short interview I became fully satisfied that I had the man capable of taking up the construction of a telephone exchange.- He was given a half-interest in the undertaking; no co-partnership papers were signed. I well remember my first trip to Boston to consult Mr. Theodore X. Vaii, then manager of the Bell Telephone Co. interests. In his office was a switchboard, some one yard wide, with ten or more connecting wires. At this time a contract was made which authorized us to construct a telephone exchange in Burlington, using the Bell patents. We at once purchased the necessary wire and other supplies and work was commenced immediately with energy under the supervision of Mr. Adsit. who took general charge of construction. In canvassing for business, residential service was first taken up; then telegraph, freight and ticket offices; then attention was turned to places of business, taking only one of the following: dry goods, i grocery, livery, lawyer, physician, dentist. i shoes and millinery. We then advertised f the subscribers in the Daily Free Press, j It required but a short time for others ; in like business to get in line, and the j rush for telephones exceeded our es-Ipectations. i Our switchboard, which we considered ! ample for some years, was soon filled to ! its limits, and a new one was invented by Mr. Adsit, which in a short time was found insufficient, and this was sold to a telephone company in Baltimore, Md. ! Our central office was on the second floor l of the City drug store. The wires were ; carried to the roof and there supported by i a heavy structure, from which they radiated in every direction, secured to nearly every house top in the city. The great event of our second year was the erecting of a telephone pole at the corner of Bank and Church streets. This pole carried more wires than that of any pole now in the city. It was considered a wonder in pole construction. It was pointed out as a sample of our line construction, and Ziom this massive pole we were fully rewarded, when we sold our interests to the New England Telephone and Telegraph company of Boston. Our chief operator was Miss Lily LaFountain, now Mrs. Peter Crady of this city. The first transmitter brought to this State was a Blake, which I brought from Boston This caused great excitement among the passengers as its purpose was explained. Up to this time, only one phone was used in conversation, the subscriber talking into the receiver. The next achievement was the constructing of a telephone line to Winooski. This event was looked upon as of more importance than the laying of our first Atlantic cable. When the office was opened in the drug store of Col. W. L. Greenleaf, speeches were made, and the town illuminated. The second long distance line was constructed from the effice of the Champlain Transportation company on King street, to their shipyard at Shelburne harbor, a distance of some nine miles. The rate for a business telephone with transmitter was $40.00 per year, and for a residence telephone $20.00 without a transmitter, or $30.00 with both transmitter and receiver, all payable six months in advance. Our only toll rate at that time was to Winooski, and a charge of 10 cents was made to call Col. Greenleafs drug store, corner Main and East Allen streets. Our experience in the development of the telephone was similar to that throughout the country. No invention has ever brought so much benefit and happiness to the world as this small instrument, and no man living has done more for its develop ment ana extension, than the Hon. T. N. Vail. In the development of the mysterious switchboard, C. E. Scribner, chief en gineer of the Western Electric company, a summer resident of Jericho, this State. is entitled to more credit than any other man. The fact that these persons are residents of Vermont has helped greatly to bring this State to the Iront in many ways It has always been a pleasure for me to meet not only pioneers in the telephone industry, but those who, to-day, are so ably carrying on this larffe and useful work to the whole world. WALTER S. VINCENT. Burlington, January 14, 1918. DAY OF PRAYER. Members of Woman's Christian Temperance Inlon to Observe Thursday. In accordaance with a-etion taken at the Rational W. C. T. tr. convention, held in Washington last month, Januarv 24 has been designated as a day of prayer for national constitutional prohibition. Following are suggested topics for thanksgiving prayer: l) For national and State legislation to provide moral safeguards for soldiers and sailors; (2) for the increasing conviction that the liquor traffic is a menace to public health and public morals, and a foe to patriotism. Topics for supplicatory prayer are: (1) For the President of the United States that he may be given wisdom and strength ; (2) For our soldiers and sailors in training and at the front, that they may be kept unstained from the vices that destroy and that they may Love God even as they love their country; tor the home folks that they may keep the home fires burning and uphold moral standards; (4) For the campaign work for ratification of the prohibition amendment; (5) For the States now in State-wide prohibition campaigns; (6) For guidance and help in the enforcement of existing laws. (7) For God's blessing upon the Woman's Christian Temperance Union in carrying out its plans for final victory. At ten o'clock on Thursday morning, January 24, all members of the Burlington W oman s Christian Temperance Union j are asked to offer at their several homes j this thanksgiving and supplicatory prayer. J In the afternoon at three o'clock a public i meeting will be held in the parish house of the First Church when Dr. C. II. Smith, State superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League, will give an address, his subject being "Over the Top for National Prohibition." The public is cordially invited. TI1K IMIIAVS PEACE AXD WOMK.V. The American Indians did not know any way to make peace effective except by appeal to their 1 women. To ask for peace was thought to be so unworthy of a male that unless women intervened there was nothing for it but to fight on to extinction. The Five Xations estab lished their Peace Woman in a fort near Xiagara River in a long house divided in the middle by a curtain. She would receive the contending parties each un-know to the other, and after she heard their cases, would draw back the curtain and give her decision. The idea of woman as the proier arbiter prevailed in the famous international a-greement between the Iroquois and the Lenni-Lenape. At this time the courteous and peace-loving Delawares were induced to become arbiters by being made women. This role of international peacemaker was carried out by the Delawares for long with dignity and success. But finally the pacific Delawares did something which was unpleasing to the militaristic Five Xations of the Iroquois. Whereupon the Five Xations sent them word that the Delawares had lost their right to independent action. And so ended the first international peace league. In this connection it may be interesting to note that there was once in America, somewhere about where AVisconsin, is now, a neutral nation, of which nothing is now known except that it was neutral. Its very name is lost. -Mary Austin, in World Outlook for Januarv. A TIME FOR STRONG NERVES Alany people are worrying' them-selves sick over the high cost of living. War time with its excitement anrl hysteria is a trial to the strongest nerves. To those whose nervous systems are run down by overwork or worry, to those who are on the verge of neurasthenia, it is a time of danger. There i3 no tonic for the nerves that is not a tonic for every other part of the body. There is no form of debility that does not rob the nerves of nourishment. -The remedy therefore for nervous breakdown in a tonic that will build up the general health, revitalize the blood and enable it to cany to the nerves the elements that they need. Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills are an ideal tonic for this condition because they are ncn-alcohoiic and neurasthenic patients should avoid alcoholic stimulants. The Dr. "Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, X. Y has published a little book on nervous disorders that contains a chapter on neurasthenia in which the symptoms are fully described and the correct treatment given. The booklet is free on request. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by your own druggist or will be sent by mail, postpaid, on receipt of price, 50 cents per box. six boxes for $2.50. Mrs. S. E. Browne!! & Co -3 Church Street.
