Need help to decode abbreviations & symbols on Detained Alien Passenger List #usa

If the destination address is a train ride away, I believe RR means RailRoad.

The name is given then 1dg. I presume that this means (&) one daughter which would be correct. Then Cause of Detention “to telgth”. From other records below it would seem to mean “to telegraph $ (money). The last confusing part is “Disposition” which states RR to Husb Ellias -address”. The name and address are correct although I believe that it should be son, not husband but RR is undefined. My only guess is something like “Remanded to Relative”.  Anyone with specific knowledge or a better thought?
