Hundred and Ninety - Six
At the annual gathering of the Brit
ish Association (or the Advancement
of Science, In 1899, Prof, Fleming of
University College, London, addressed
tho gathering upon -Wireless Telegra
phy, and Incidental)-;' mentioned that
while, transmitting messages from
Boulogne to Dover they were read at
Chelmsford some. 118 miles from the
point of transmission. This, undoubt
edly, was b remarkable performance,
but It also emphasized very forcibly
ono drawback which has long occupied
the unremitting attention of Marconi,
That Is, tho possibility of one or more
stations reading a message Intended
for another. Such a circumstances na-

Twenty odd miles away across tho So
lent is another station at tho south
western corner of the Isle of Wight.
Between these two points messages
ore being transmitted throughout the
day, almost without cessation, and
this Is how several Important dlscov
cries and Improvements have been by
tho Inventor. While experimenting
with his synchronizing system, Marco
ni had several opportunities of proving
tho capabilities of his device. At Ports
mouth tho English Admiralty were car
rying out experiments with wireless
telegraphy In connection with the flee',
nnd naturally several nf these cthr
waves crossed Marconi's lino of trans-
sea, Then tho International Company
of Franco are having the coast of that
country, metaphorically speaking,
lined with his Installations, so that
communication may be maintained bo
tween the vvcssels of tho French Navy
and nny point of tho mainland, which
would play an Important part In cane
of n war between England nnd Franco,
slnco by this means the latter nation
could manipulate their troops accord
ing to the Information received from
their battleships, nnd thus bo nblo to
work tho land nnd sea force hand
In hand. Then six stations are being
set up in tho Hawaiian Islands and will
Boon bo in working order. Many ves
sels In tho Kngllsh Navy are also hal
ing tho system installed.
