The PASTORAL, .MINING AND. PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, MABCH 10, 1906. THE TELEGRAPH LINE. ANOTHER of those annoying inter- | rnptions to telegraphic business be tween tlie North and the capital has to be recorded, the line failing on Thursday afternoon after having worked badly all day. Though the actual cause of tlie interruption was not known here last night, it pre sumably was a " break." In the casual way the telegraphic depart ment has, no effort had apparently been made up to going to press to find ont the reason for the break ; certainly the local office could not supply any information on the sub ject. At the autumn season of the year the Northern telegraph line is particularly susceptible to damage; scarcely a year passes but what the line is reported to be " down," and sometimes it remains so for days to gether, especially after one of those big floods to which the North is oc casionally subject. We realise that interruptions are likely to continue even under the best of sup...
