Sussex Railroad Telegraph
Thursday morning last the Sussex Railroad company commenced
the erection of the telegraph line between Waterloo and Franklin, and
last evening had the wire up as far as Monroe Corner. It is a single
wire and is to be used only by the company in the running of trains.
At Waterloo the Sussex and D. L. & W. companies employ an operator;
at the Newton depot Mr. Drake, an operator from Washington, will be
in charge of the office, and at Franklin Mr. Smith, the present operator
of the Midland, will act in the same capacity for the Sussex company.
At Andover and Warbasse's Junction a telephone connection will be made
with the offices. The line will be completed tomorrow, and will be in
operation in a few days.
