BELL COMPANY PAYS
i $500,000 FOR INVENTION
Possible to Telephone from New York
to London Series of Induction
Coils Overcomes Resistance
-New Cables Needed.
New York, Jan. 15. Tho Herald
According to the statsmenl.i of Prof.
Mi.hael Pupln, adjunct profcrsnr of
mechanics In Columbia University, tho
American Bell Tclcphono nnd Tele
graph Company has paid him, Instead
of $200,000 ns originally stated, marlr
$500 000 for his recent Invention of a
Bjstom by which ocean telephony Is
mado possible This Is In addition to
the annual rojalty of $15 000 a joar
during the life of the patents
"The Bell Company has tested th
Invention for six months." he said,
"nnd express themselves ns perfectly
sntlsflcd with It The question of ocean
telephony Is solved from n sclentlfl;
standpoint nnd there now remains only
tho commercial iiuestlon.
"Thero Is no doubt that as booh as
tho financial part of the matter Is set
tled It will bo perfectly possible to
telephone to San Tranclsco nnd London
nnd to send cable messages to Europe
at far less cost than at present.
"Ilrleflj-," the professor added, "tho
question had been to overcome resist
ance In tho present ocean cables tho
current Ins so many obstnclcs to bat
tle with thai It Is comparatively slow
In traveling nnd becomes very weak bo
fore It reaches Its destination, 3000
Prof. Pupln. nfter long experiments,
finally discovered that the Insertion of
eight Induction colls to every mile of
wlro would overcome this resistance,
and messages could be sent over tho
cnblo nt n much faster rate.
By this means every time the cur
rent begins to slacken Its strength It
will meet ono of the colls which will
glvo It renewed Impetus till It reaches
the next coll, nnd so on. It Is practi
cally n relay method of supplying
strength. Tho new Bjstem will require
now cables, which will Involve an
It Is this fenturo alono which Is re
tarding tho work nt present. The ca
bles will require no grcnter strength
In electricity nnd no different trans
mitters from thoso used now.
Ills Invention, when applied to land
wires, ho explained, will enable mess
ages to bo sent much further without
relnjlng than at present and will make
conversation between New York nnd
Snn Tranclsco possible.

In tho afternoon a telegram wus re
ceived from him sajlng that it would
ho Impossiblu for him to reach the

Mr. Brjnn did not nrrivo until to
