It is a public challenge to the men most interested in preventing the establishment of the Telepost to come squarely out and show cause. If any of those challenged have anything to say openly and above board, we shall be glad to hear it and answer it. There has been a good deal of fighting from ambush. There has been no little going about in the dark. There have been plenty of vague hints and veiled suggestions. There have been any number of attempts to create personal prejudice and public distrust. There have been a good many inspired articles in the press that were cunningly made to insinuate what it was not thought judicious to state in precise words. But there has been no open, straightforward and honest offer to dispute the claim of the Telepost Company that the Delany system is the greatest achievement in the history of telegraphy, and that the Telepost will send messages over a single wire at the specd of 1,000 words a minute, enabling it to reduce telegraphic charges to a rate not exceeding one cent a word, regardless of distance. THESE CLAIMS CANNOT BE CONTROVERTED
The opportunity is open to any one and every one to investigate and test the Telepost for himself. The more thorough the investigation, the more convincing will be the proof that the Telepost will institute a new era in telegraphy, doing for the land service what the Marconi wireless system promises to do for ocean telegraphy. The days of the old Morse system, with its slow hand-operation and irremediable short-comings, are numbered. Write for illustrated booklet No. 44, which gives full particulars.
