....Talk of the consolidation of the Baltimore and Ohio, Postal, Pacific Mutual and connecting lines of telegraph continues. B. R. Bates, superintendent of the Baltimore and Ohio lines in the West and Southwest, states that he does not believe that the Baltimore and Ohio intends to sell. Chris Dougherty, Western manager of the Postal Telegraph Company, states that the Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph Company has had its plant and franchises on the market for some time. Should Gould purchase the Baltimore and Ohio, the Postal would build lines at all points now covered by the Baltimore and Ohio, and not covered by the Postal.
