A NEVrTELEPHONIC INVENTION.
A friend lias given us a clipping
from a New Zealand paper, contain-in-
a description of a new invention
in telephony, for which Mr. Frank
Ilebden, of Christchuich, telegra
phic and telephonic engineer, has
applied for a patent. It is entitled,
' Iinpioveincnt-5 for transmitters and
connections in telephones." A let
ter quoted in the ailicle thus des
cribes the now invention :
"Imagine a shallow round box of
three and-a-half inches diameter and
an inch deep, formed of polished
wood. In the lid, and in the bottom
also, is a large circular aperture.
One hole is stopped up with an
extremely thin sheet of the costly
white metal called platinum, and the
other hole with a thin sheet of brass.
To each sheet oi metal is allixed a
copper wiie, wheieby to transmit an
electric current, and included in the
If circuit" is a permanent battery
(of one or more hcclanchc cclK).
These two metals, platinum -and
brass, 1 am told, have what is term
ed an electrical alliuity for each
other; and lady leaders, doubtless,
especially those who have a profound
belief in the mystic poveiof animal
magnetism, will be able to appie
ciate this aflinity. Perhaps they
may even be enabled to determine
which metal possesses the stronger
attractive force, the pale-faced child
of the Uial Mountains, of whom Dr.
"Wollaston became the foster parent,
or the dark-hucd offspring of the
commingled Cot nish and Devonshire
families, the alloy of copper and
tin. There arc the two metal sheets,
possessed with this strange alllnity
for one another, but parted by an
air-wall of half an inch. It is 1'yra
mus amlTliisbe once again; their
vibrations cannot be intercommuni
cated. So the space between them
is filled up with fiiendly -topping
stones, granules of carbon. To drop
metaphor, wc have, then,, a shallow
box with vibi ating top and bottom,
the interior loosely filled with car
bon granules. Is'ow, what happens
when wc use this box as a telephonic
transmitter? Here is what the in
ventor, in cifeet, bets foith in his
specification: The voice causes the
platinum diaphragm to vibrate,
which in its turn, by compression or
disturbance of the granules of car
bon, strengthens or weakens the bat
tery current ; sympathetic vibration
boing simultaneously set up in the
back plate of biass. And since the
battery curient Jlov along tho wire
to the distant station, the vibrating
plate in the receiver there is also
subject to sympathetic action repro
ducing tho speech which originated
the phenomena. Does the reader
perfectly understand it all? If so,
I envy him or her."
Regarding the capabilities of the
improvements, the , following is
'Tho practical improvement
secured by Mr. llcbden's new trans
mitter is greater than even those
who arc ubIi ig the telephone every
tlay could readily imagine. I, iu
Chvlstchurch, talked in nn under
tone with the inventor in Lyttclton.
I (and others, or 1 should hesitate
to recoid it) could hear every sound
he uttered, minus the metallic
twang; even when, at a distance of
I I fret from the instrument, he
whistled n miiidcrous rendering of
Rule Britannia.' The ticking of a
small pendulum clock could be heard
an hen placed close to the appliance,
and so, too, could the scratching of
a pen upon paper, notwithstanding
the constant ric-a-lic of telegraphic
instruments at Lyttclton, the noise
of which was picked up by our wire;
and, notwithstanding, too, the ex
tremely animated 'induced current'
com creation between other telephon
ists, whose embellished complimculs
cainc to unwilling cars. Hctwcon
the old form of transmitter and the
new there is simply no comparison,
so far as this Christchurch-Lyttclton
test h concerned. Several of Mr.
llebden's- instruments have been
attached to wires between Christ
church and Lyttclton, with the most
satisfactory lesults, and on Satur
day last a very severe test was ap
plied to the invention. Mr. Hcbdeii
was engaged by the New Zealand
Grain Agency to attach his instru
ment to "thoiV wiic between Christ
chui ch and Tiniaiu. a distance of
100 miles. Thi was completed on
Saturday, and on Monday conversa
tion was freely carried on between
the two olllces, with all the case of
iniy, it is not too much to say with
much more ease than with the ordi
nal v transmitter over a distance of
half a mile."
The gontlcmaii who has favored
us with the article from which the
above extracts aie taken, has sug
gested that the invention referred to
might be applied with great advan
tage to the telephonic station on
these Islands, which arc communi
cated with over long circuits. 'We
make no chatge for conveying the
hint to our telephone companies.
Tlieic is reason for patriotic grati
fication in the piogress that is being
made in developing the resources of
this Kingdom by private enterprise.
Those who have experimented at
their own charges until they have
demonstrated that success is practi
cable in particular lines of agricul
ture, are worthy of all honor as the
pioneers of a new era of prosperity,
based upon diversified products,
which now seems to be measurably
near. In stock-raising ; fodder,
ceical, and vegetable glowing; fruit
cultuic, and other lines of tillage,
different persons have proved that
our soil is capable of the greatest
possibilities in richness and variety
of pioductious. A stage in the agri
cultural development of the country
may now be assumed to have been
readied, when a systematic combi
nation and conservation of results
should be adopted. The value of
the meetings and records of the
Planters' Company and auxiliary
associations to the sugar industry is
beyond estimate. Indeed, no small
impetus must have been given to
miscellaneous agriculture by the
casual discussion of industries sup
plemental to the plantations in that
body. It is time, however, that
general agriculture should have an
organization for concentrating, pre
serving, and disseminating the know
ledge gained bj' experience in this
country's soil and climate. Perhaps
the Itoyal Hawaiian Agricultural
.Society which is scarcely ever heard
of except in connection with ex
hibitions subsidized bj the Legis
lature could be made the ground
woik of a fresher, more popular and
progressive organization. At all
events, there is needed a live agri
cultural society with headquarters
iu Honolulu, to hold a general meet
ing annually, its executive to have
at least quarterly sessions. An
auxiliary should be formed in each
importnnt rural district, and might
have frequent meetings, in which
general mental improvement might
be made an object in addition to the
main one of comparing notes upon
farming topics. With such an
organization, the whole country
would have the benefit of the practi
cal knowledge already acquired by
our more advanced experimenters ;
every new idea would be promul
gated as soon as it had stood a
satisfactory test, and members would
carry away from the meetings valu
able suggestions and stimulative en
thusiasm that must undoubtedly
manifest themselves in the results of
their subsequent operations. Doubt
less the Planter's Company would
would bo only too glad to fraternizo
with such an organization, and its
excellent magazine could with ad
vantage to all concerned be made
the organ of both bodies.
