    At the time when the Electric Telegraph introduced into the colonies of Australia, The Colonies established the Electric Telegraph Department (E.T.D) under each Colonies Public Works Department that remained in place until 1869 to about 1880, when the responsibilities for each E.T.D. were transferred from the Colonies Works Department to their Postmaster General as Ministerial administrator to form in each colony as the Postmaster General (P.M.G.) Electric Telegraph Department (be it PMG ETD N.S.W, Vic., Qld., Tas., S.A., W.A. or N.Z.).

    When the Electric Telegraph Department (ETD), was transferred to the Postmaster General as Ministerial administrator, it was a service quite distinct from the Post Office, and was not under the secretary to the Postal Department, which is highlighted in many cities and towns in that very few Telegraph Offices and Post-Offices with internal connection and very often they had separate buildings. Under the P.M.G. at that time there were three separate individual heads within the PMG, each permanent, each owing no obedience or allegiance to the other, only than to the Minister.

    The transition from the various Works Departments occurred over a period of years from 1869 with South Australia, then Victoria 1870, Queensland 1880 and New South Wales 1893. In the Colony of N.S.W. "Colonel" E. C. Cracknell was the Director of E.T.D. N.S.W. from 1857 to 1872 and then from 1872 to 1893 as Superintendent of Electric Telegraph when N.S.W. entered into a "transition phase" reporting to the N.S.W.Postmaster General. On the death in 1893 of E. C. Cracknell a full amalgamation was then achieved in N.S.W. by an act of Parliament.

    1880 - newspapers have repeatedly drawn attention to the manner in which the N.S.W. Public Works Department disregards the efficient condition of the telegraph lines of the colony by having no system of construction or maintenance, a very slipshod method of repair, and an entire absence of competent supervision. That our remarks have been considered just by competent authorities, is proved by the fact that we recently received a lengthy letter from a gentleman in a neighbouring colony.... Our lines are erected by contract, passed by a clerk of works who is neither an electrician nor acquainted with telegraph working, the maintenance of the lines is utterly disregarded, and the repairs are entrusted to the cheapest tenderer, utterly regardless of his competency or of the fact that he may do more harm than good to the lines by ignorant and bungling repairs, there by laying the foundation of future breakdowns. There is no provision whatever made for even periodical inspection by a skilled officer : in short the resent system is cumbrous, expensive, and thoroughly inefficient. How unsatisfactory it is the general public know little of, but we, who require to receive thousands of words for a single issue of our paper, feel it severely sometimes. Important messages are often delayed through interruptions, and as regards our
    communication with the capital, though there are two wires erected,

    1856 - ******* The Electric Telegraph future in the 1820s was bleak. Fortunately, the required stimulus to push it forward came with the introduction of railroads. The vast advantage to a railroad of a method of conveying signals instantaneously throughout its entire length was at once seen, and the continuity of its property, together with the protection afforded by its servants, presented these facilities for its introduction and maintenance which had never before existed. Its application and success followed immediately. Corrected.. ***************

    stripped by younger and smaller communities."
    " In New South Wales alone, nothing has as yet been done. Political quarrels have stood in the way of any activity in this respect. It is to be hoped that whenever a Government does manage to get consolidated, one of the first subjects to which its attention will be directed will be to inquire into the practicability and expediency of constructing telegraphs to bring Sydney into communication not only with Melbourne, but with various parts of the colony."

    1871 - _ 1. " reached the South channel than the torpedo was fired by means of an electrical current, communicated to it by Mr. Cracknell, the Superintendent of Telegraphs, who was stationed at the South Head. Seen from the deck of the steamer, the upheaval of the water was a sight grand in the extreme. Tossed to a height of apparently about 100 feet above the level, the water presented the appearance of a huge wave as white and as turbulent as Niagara at its base ; and the fragments of the boat beneath which the engine of destruction had been moored, indicated with terrific force the horrible fate that would befall any vessel passing over one during its explosion. A second or two and the water, so ruffled by the explosion, resumed its placid surface, and there was not a trace left of the boat, torpedo, or of the imaginary " filibuster " blown into atoms." _____ 2 ... "It remained then to fire the torpedo. This terrible instrument of modern warfare had been sunk in mid-channel between the Heads — the position being marked by a boat, carrying a flag, which was moored over it. The signal to fire was the discharge of one gun from head-quarters, at a point near the boat : in fact the
    instructions to the gunners were tantamount to directing them to " go as near as possible without touching." This direction was obeyed with marvellous skill and discretion, and all eyes were then turned upon the mark. Nor had they long to wait. A huge
    volume of water, lashed into the consistency of cream, rose a height (as it appeared from George's Head) of about 100 feet in the air ; it shot upwards, appeared to hesitate a moment, fell over in an immense mass of foam irradiated by the sun into literally " all the colours of the rainbow." Of the old boat not a vestige remained, save a plank or two wafted like a pith ball on the surface of a fountain. The aspect of the whole was indescribably beautiful ; but to those on board two vessels in the offing the whole affair must have savoured somewhat of the marvellous, and doubtless many anxious hopes were entertained that when they entered the Heads they would not be favoured with any similar demonstration......______ 3... and " THE Expectation was now high to witness the explosion of the torpedo, about a mile from the beach, over which was placed an old boat, the torpedo was ignited by electricity from the South
    Head beach. With aloud thud the quiet sea, for about thirty yards, seemed to be terribly convulsed, and the boat with a tremendous body of water was sent fully thirty feet high. The boat came down broken into hundreds of small fragments. The explosion of the
    torpedo was followed by another salvo from the artillery."

    1871 - "A torpedo which had been suspended under a boat moored off the South Head was exploded with the electric spark by Mr. E. C. Cracknell, who was stationed at the inner South Head. We believe the torpedo case was charged with about 800 lbs of powder, and was hung under the boat at a depth of 16 feet. The explosion of the torpedo formed one of the grandest spectacular effects of the day. An enormous quantity of water must have been displaced, for the huge pyramid of foam which appeared to rise perpendicularly was for the moment sufficient to obscure the North Head from view. The sunlight playing upon the upheaved water produced some pleasing shades of colour. The appearance of an aqueous column steadily rising from deep by some mighty and unseen impulse was most singular, and was the more remarkable and interesting by reason of the fact that the majority of the spectators never witnessed the like before. As to the unfortunate boat, it must have been smashed into " smithereens"—whatever they may be—and will never do duty again in a similar capacity." ..........Article corrected.............

    1925 - 1. Herr Starke was never taken very seriously by those not immediately under his jurisdiction, and whenever he had occasion to visit, the operating room the boys were bound to have a little fun at his expertise, They gave him a rather warm time in their news sheet when he was appointed to a commission in the newly formed torpedo and signalling corps hurriedly got together and recruited from the ranks of the Electric Telegraph Departmental staff...... 2.Old hands will remember the big Russian scare of 1885, when it was reported and confidently expected that, at any moment a fleet of Moscovites would put in an appearance off Caloundra Heads, and blow the whole place to smithereens. How the scare quickly fizzled out is matter of history. .....3. The torpedo corps never, got a chance to show their mettle, nor explode a bit amongst the enemy, although several hundred citizens were privileged to witness a successful demonstration of torpedo firing under the direction of Captain Cracknell, on the grounds of the National A. and I. Association..-----
    ...Reference is also made to Mr, Herr Starke by Mr. Cracknell NSW Superintendent Electric Telegraph Department, also mention that the model he used to demonstrate the days event was made by Mr. H. Starke, electrician of the Queensland Electric Telegraph Department (and a commission Officer with the Torpedo Corps), and, from the delicacy of the work, must have been an undertaking of considerable time and difficulty. ......

    1877 - The presence in Brisbane of Mr. E. C. Cracknell, the Superintendent of Electric Telegraphs in New South Wales, a gentleman thoroughly versed in the modern science of torpedo warfare, must be looked upon as a fortunate circumstance. Mr. Cracknell, during a recent lengthened visit to England, was afforded opportunities of making himself thoroughly acquainted with the latest inventions in this apparently effective means of defence..... Mr. Cracknell, made mention that the model that he had used to demonstrate the series of events that day was made by Mr. H. Starke, an electrician with the Queensland Electric Telegraph Department, referring to the delicacy of the work, must have been an undertaking of considerable time and difficulty. In an article in the "Western Star and Roma Advertiser" (Toowoomba, Qld) of Saturday 4th August 1877 "Torpedo Experiments".
    Mr. McConachie also spoke of Mr Starke (who was also a commission Officer in the Queensland Torpedo Corps being recruited from the ranks of the Telegraph departmental staff).in his article in the "Telegraph" (Brisbane, Qld.) of Monday 28th December 1925 "REMINISCENCES OF THE POST OFFICE - OLD TIMES AND OLD

    1. Superintendent of Electric Telegraphs.
    2. Major; commanding the N.S.W. Torpedo Corps.
    3. A Commissioner of Defence from Foreign Aggression (one of several members).
    There is also another feature in Mr. Cracknell's superintendence of our telegraph system. With commendable forethought, he appears to have had always one very important point in view that is, the duplication of all land lines. Now, in the event of interruption on one line, another is always available. This is clearly defined by a
    glance at the telegraph chart of the colony, where it will be observed that there is scarcely a town that cannot be communicated with.
