    Excerpt from Handbook of Submarine Cables: U. S. Signal Corps

    Prior to 1898 the duties of installing and operating submarine cables devolved but rarely on the Signal Corps Of the Army, and in such cases only along the coasts of the United States where technical labor and special material were readily available. The war of 1898 necessitated on the part Of the Signal Corps extensive cable operations in the Carribean Sea and in the Philippine Archipelago, while later they have been extended to Alaskan waters. Under such conditions it was impracticable to either lay such cables by contract or to operate them by civilian force. In consequence, it devolved upon the Chief Signal Officer Of the Army, Gen. A. W. Greely, to organize a system under which the installation, operation,' and maintenance Of long submarine cables should be efficiently performed by the Officers and men Of the Signal Corps Of the Army. The situation was further complicated by the fact that up to that date no long submarine cable Of American manufacture had ever been successfully installed and operated.

    In 1902 it became necessary to issue a handbook, setting forth the means and methods utilized in cable operations by the Signal Corps of the Army. In preparing this manual Major Russel has utilized such extracts from the books of reference named and such Signal Corps reports and drawings as have seemed of general interest.

    As the handbook was intended for a practical guide to Officers of the Signal Corps, particular value was attached to the extended experiences of signal corps Officers in installing and operating sub marine cables. Such cable operations involving miles of cables have been conducted by the Signal Corps under varying physical condi tions, from the icy waters Of Bering Strait to the tropical sea of Sulu, J 010 Archipelago.
