Thirty miles of telephone lines are in operation, twenty-five telephones are in use. In addition, ten 'phones are installed in the Gold Coin mine down to the 1000-foot point.
The exchange is also connected with the Bell system and long distance lines throughout the state.
The towns of Gillett, Cameron and Victor are connected by the Pike's Peak line. All of the mines, as well as industrials, operated by the Woods Investment Company, are on the private line.
