Installation of the dial apparatus in the new telephone exchange building going up on Ware Street will not begin for some time although the structure itself is now entirely completed, it was learned from a reliable source last night. The nature of the delay was not made public, but it is believed that it will not be cleared up for at least a month. At present there is one telephone set up in the building.
As far as could be learned. no more action has been taken concerning the possibility of the dial exchange of this vicinity being named "ELI," the abbreviation of "Eliot." High officials working on the new building stated they were unaware that the exchange was to be named "Eliot." but they reserved further comment.
