The 'phones of the future are to be underground, probably in 20 years' time we shall not see one overhead wire in Swansea at all. Five pipes are being laid underground in the direction of Cardiff; three will go direct, and one each to Port T::dbot and Neath, with a sixth to LIan- elly. These are main trunks, and con- sidering e&ch pipe contains hundreds of wires the facilities that will be opened out can be anticipated. For instance, a large number of persons coming on sud- denly at one time for Cardiff calls, say, will all be able to get through simultane- ously. NG DELAY SERVICE.
