Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph.

BALTIMORE, Md. At a meeting of the Boards of Directors and Stockholders of the Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph Company, David H. Bates was elected President and General Manager. Mr. Bates's high standing as one of the best known and most successful telegraph men in the country, and the fact of his resigning the Vice-Presidency and office of Assistant General Manager of the Western Union Telegraph Company to accept the positions to which he has just been elected has given Baltimore and Ohio telegraph interests a derided impetus. It is currently reported that the details of several most important extensions of the Baltimore and Ohio system have already been perfected among them direct wires to Milwaukee, St. Paul, Minneapolis, and intervening points in the Northwest, also corresponding facilities throughout the Southwest, while Boston and New England will be covered by new wires from New York.
