Cablegrams of Congratulation.
Cablegrams from nil tbo world con
tinued to pour In on Marconi today.
Bo alt the world Is honoring him and
ho Is universally pUb.isliIng tho now a
of his triumph. Hut the belief grows
that this was not nis original purpose.
Ho bad laid his plans most carefully to
keep secret his success, did ho suc
ceed. He says now: "I am at liberty
to inform tho press what 1 have ac
complished." It Is now understood
that the secret of his accomplishment
was betrayed by an operator In bis em
ploy. Marconi will hurry back to England
probably Friday on tho Allan line
steamer Sardinia. Hut -cforo he goes
tomorrow, hu and his assistants,
Kemp nnd Paget, will go to Canu
Spear, three miles southeast of St.
John's1 harbor, the most easterly point
of New Koundland, and so nearest to
the ilrltlsh Isles and Central Kuroue.
There is a lighthouse and steam siren
nt I .ape spear, high alKivo tho sea
leevl, and Marconi hopes there to find
a fine-location for a station, lie and
his assistants will also hurriedly visit
untie llnce, tne moiel southeasterly
point of Now Koundland. Iln will thero
Install n station, where ho exacts to
dally report steamers as they ply no
tween the continents. Hu will take
with him to Cape llnce n metal mast
nhout ISO feet tall. He seems to hao
had enough of unstable balloons.
On Tuesday next tne Inventor pro
poses to have Governor lluyie, Premier
liontls and other colonial dignitaries
exitmlnu his tests, so they may satis
fy themselves of the genuineness ol
iroceedlngs. Mnrconl tnuaymadu n

them. He attributes heir former
fnlntness to mldoetau wind currents
nnd Imperfection in i.is kite apparatus.
Expects Better Results Today.
He expects better tests tomorrow If
the weather enables bis bolloou to as
cend. There Is some fog on tho const.
today, Foggy conditions will glvn bet
ter signals than will clear atmosphere.
There Is much speculation hero ns to
thn practical osslbliiticM of this sys
tem of wireless telegraphy. 1-ocal te
legraphers, whilu admitting tbu theo
retical value or thu experiment, think
a number of years must elapse befoiu
It can be put Into practical use.
Marconi, bowel cr, now optimistic. Is
satisiieu irom run previous expel t
ments that great surprises urn In
store for thu world In this matter. Hu
has the warmest support In this col
ouy, where ho Is generally admlrru
owing to his youth and his achieve
ments. Steps are being projected to
glte him some substantial recognltlou
of the colony's npprec latlon of hi.
work. The belief that -Marconi's se
cret was betrayed Is strengthened by
the details of his preparations for tbe
Above all things, he wished to keen
the knowledge of his success from the
cable companies. When he lull Kng-
