TELEGRAPH RATES TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES. The following table gives the rate per word from New York City. The address and signature are included in the charges, and the maximum length of a chargeable word is fixed at fifteen letters. When a word is composed of more than fifteen letters, every additional fifteen or the fraction of fifteen letters will be counted as a word.

The rates of the several cable companies doing business from New York are practically the same. In some cases, however, there is more than one rate to the same point, depending upon the route selected. For instance, the rate to Japan“ via Northern " route (through Siberia) is $1.76 per word, while the same office here will charge $2.15 if the message is ordered transmitted “via Eastern ” or “ Indo." The rates in table below are the rates by the lowest price route. Per Word Per Word
