Mr. SHOUP. Yes; cables operated by the Pacific Cable Board. The British Government is interested in that to the extent of fiveeighteenths, Canada five-eighteenths, Australia six-eighteenths, and New Zealand two-eighteenths.

Senator Dill. How many miles of cables have they?
Mr. SHOUP. Twenty-five thousand miles.

Senator DILL. That is not included in the 163,000 miles you referred to?

Mr. SHOUP. Yes; it is.
Senator DILL. You said 163,000 miles privately owned.

Mr. SHOUP. These 25,000 miles for the immediate present are not operated by the Government, but they will be taken over by the cable-radio merger. It also includes one of the trans-Atlantic cables.

Senator Dill. What Governments operate purely governmentowned cables?

Mr. SHOUP. I might say, Senator Dill, that I have here a list of all the cables in the world. For those operated by government administrations they have not a detailed list, but they have a summary of the number of cables, number of conductors, and number of nautical miles for each country. But for private companies I have a detailed list of all cables for the purpose of the record.

Senator Dill. I think that ought to be put in the record.
Mr. SHOUP. I think so too.

(The list furnished by Mr. Shoup of the submarine cables of the world, is here made a part of the record, as follows:)
