IMPORTANT EXTENSION OF TELE. PHONE LICENSES. The secretary of the United Telephone Company has sent the following copy of a letter to the press referring to new licenses granted to the company, and which foreshadowed important extensions of the tele- phonic system: United Telephone Company (Limited), Oxford- ccurt, Cannon-street, E.C., Nov. 24. "Dear Sir,—I am requested bv my Board to aoquaint you that the new form of license for this company has been to-day received from the Post- master-General. "The license is for thirty-one years from the 1st of January, 1881, and the following are the principal points on which concessions have been made "The license contains no limit of area nor restric- tion as to running trunk wires from town to town. Call offices may now be opened wherebv members of the public can communicate with subscribers. "The claims of the Post-office to provide in the license for the supply of telephones to the department by the company and the proposal that the company should pay a royalty to Government upon private wires erected and maintained by it have been given up. By a separate agreement telephone exchanges may be connected with the post-office, and subscribers may send and receive telegrams by telephone.-I am, &c., (Signed) "THOMAS BLAIKIE, Secretary. Henry Charles Burdett, Esq., Share and Loan Department, Stock Exchange, E.C."
