A New Line to Newark, N. J.


Mr. ROBERT BROWN, telegraph contractor, has just completed a new line of seven wires between New York and Newark, N. J., with branch lines of three wires to Jersey City and two wires to Hoboken. These wires are intended for parties desiring telegraph accommodation between their offices in the city and their factories, etc., in New Jersey. The line is built with 35 and 40 foot poles - 40 to the mile - screw glass insulators, with top pin and cross-arms. They are well built, and furnish accommodation which was much needed.

Mr. Brown is now engaged in constructing lines through South Brooklyn for the Gold and Stock Telegraph Company, intended to be leased to parties in that section requiring such facilities, and hitherto unprovided therewith.
