which will be held on Thursday even
St. John's, N. F., Dec. 14. Signer
Marconi Announced tonight that he
bad received electric olgnals across
the Atlantic ocean from his station In
Cornwall, England. He explains that
before leaving England he made plans
for accomplishing this result, for,
while his primary object was to com
municate with ocean liners In mid
ocean, he hoped also to succeed In at
taining the wonderful scientific
achievement of wireless telegraphy
across the Atlantic.
Slgnor Marconi's station in Cornwall
Is very powerfull. He possesses an
elt-ctrlc force, generated there, a hun
dred times greater tnan his ordinary
statious. tlcfore h left England he
armnged with the electrician In
charge- of the station, which Is located
at Poldliu, that signals should be sent
dally after a certain date which Mar
coni would cable him after having per
fected his arrangements hcrv. Bignnr
Marconi arrived hero a week ago Fri
day, selected Signal Hill, at the en
trance to the harbor, as an experiment
ing stntion and moved his equipment
Ijtat Monday he cabled to the I'old
hu 'station to begin sending signals at
3 p. in. dally and to continue them un
til C p. m.. theso hours being respect
ively 11:30 a. m. and 2:30 p. m.. HU
John's time. During these hours Wed
nesday Signor Marconi elevated a kite
with an aerial wire, by means of wnlch
signals aro sent or received. Ho re
mained at the recorder attached to the
Marconi cabled to his principals la
England, and also Informed tno Gov.
ernor of Ncwfouuulnml, 8fr. Cavendish
Jioyk'. Who apprised the llrltish Cabi
net of tho success Of the experiments-
Signer Marconi, though satisfied ol
tho genuineness of the signals and
that ho has succeeded lu bis attempt
In establishing communlcat!6n across
the Atlantic without the use of wires,
emphasizes the fact that tbu system
Is yet only In an embryonic stage and
that thu possibility ol Its ultimate de
velopment Is demonstrated by the suc
cess of the present experiments with
Incomplete and Imperfect apparatus,
as the signals run only be received by
the most sensitively adjustcu appar
atus, and S.gnor Marconi Is working
under great dlDlcultles owing to the
conditions prevailing.' Tbo Cornwall
coast Is 1700 miles from Bt. John's.
In view of the success attending
these trials 8lenor Marconi will for
the present disregard thu matter of
communicating with trans-Atlantic
steamers. He will return to England
next week and will conduct thu exper
iments from Poldhu himself. He ex
plains that the great electrical power
there will enable him to send more
effective signals. He will undcrtako
this work himself, leaving assistants
here to erect a mast and receive the
signals ns he forwards uom. It Is not
posslblu to send return signals from
here until a powerful electric battery
shall havn beeu InstnlUd.

full details that tell how thu triumph
of wireless telegraphy whs accom
plished, how a message was sent 1800
miles across the Atlautlc, prove that
Marconi prepared for this experiment
with the most scientific caro nnd ut
most secrecy. Had his experiment
failed ho would not have been disap
pointed, for failure would havo meant
nothing when one considers tbo extra
ordinary task that Buc.i a trial put
upon his apparatus. Ho succeeded.
Ho is elated, triumphant. Today
ciowds of people ascended Signal Hill

wish "to hear thu ticking of the rues

Messages wcro received by Marconi
on a very sensitive tolcpuonu attached
to his instruments that enabled him
to detect signals that tho Instruments
themselves Intensely delicate, could
not record. These crowds would hnvn
been honored to see Marconi, to con
gratulate him. to shake his hand.
