Long Distance For Susanville
Telephone Line Is Now Complete Into the County Seat of Lassen
September  5th, 1911

Susanville was yesterday placed in position that it could telephone with the outside world, as the long distance line into that city, which has been under construction for several months, was completed.

The first conversation over the line was held between a representative of the Lassen County Mail and The Journal office. The conversation was carried on without trouble and the words could be heard without difficulty.

The voice from the other end of the wire was clear and distinct, and The Journal office was informed that conditions at the Lassen county seat were peaceful and prosperous. The same information was vouchsafed from this end of the line.
