Telegraph Superintedent's j Retirement. j As we have already stated, 'ilr. Ed- Avaids, after 42 years spent in the Swansea, telegraph service, has now retired. --y Ed- j wards eommenoed his career under the old Magnetic Telegraph Company. Doubtless many, old Swansea residents will remember the somewhat unpretentious premies oeeu- pied by that company in Mount-street, and later on the improvements and developments which took place at Coleridge House after the transfer of the company's business to the State. This is the age of progress, and to-day thc instnunent room in the new Post Uftice is capable of accommodating 200 clerks, and i« replete with the latest and most scientific tele- graphic appliances. Mr. Edwards was almost the last link that connected the present teie- gra-ph staff with the workers of the old com- pany, and during his supenntendentsinp lie had witnessed many changes not only in th^. personnol, but also in the manner in which the telegraph work was perfoimed. To-day with high-speed) a.ppanita, and with wireless possibilities, the service is a very different one to tint which was handed over t* the Government in 1872. He had held the posi- tion from which he retired for 21 years, the whole of which period was* ."pent at Mcuni- street and in Coleridge House.and the Depart- ment by his retirement loses a zealous and conscientious offieor. In his dealings also with the men and women whom he controlled he was considerate and kind; and. looking back over the periods that have passed away, the staff feel n, keen sorrow at parting with I i-e their old chief, and express the most sincere hcpes that he may be blessed with long years of health and happiness, and thonoughly enjoy his w ell-earned pension. .-J.
